BEAUTY TUESDAY!!: THIS WEEKS BEAUTY BUYS!!

Hi Guys and Welcome to today's blog post, I hope you our all having a wonderful day!! Yesterday I went out shopping to pick up a few Beauty Items (not a lot of stuff). I just picked a few beauty essentials that I was out of such as Cotton Pads for my Face and some Face Cream. One other product I did picked up was this New GARNIER MICELLAR CLEANSING WATER that I seen in TESCO. The price was €6.29, but it was on offer so I bought it for €4.19....Oh I do love a good offer!!


Here's a pic of it...(don't worry I will be sharing this with you all in next weeks BEAUTY TUESDAY BLOG POST!!

For today's blog post I wanted to share with you some Makeup/Beauty Products that I bought in today's Beauty Tuesday Blog Post!!

Up first I bought this SUPERSTAY BETTER SKIN FOUNDATION by MAYBELLINE. I actually bought this by chance as I was running low on the regular foundation I use!! I was going to buy the Dream Satin Liquid in 004 Ivory but then I seen the SUPERSTAY BETTER SKIN FOUNDATION and thought why not give it a go. As they didn't have my normal shade in it, I opted to go for the shade 021 Nude and to be honest there isn't much of a different in the shade, its just a little bit dark but that's about it!!
I bought both of these in TESCO for €8.00 each as it was on offer!!


Next I bought L'OREAL ELVIVE FULL RESTORE 5 REPAIRING SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER. If you all don't already know from looking at my blogs, I tend to change my Shampoo/Conditioner about a million times!! haha...well maybe not that amount of times!! But yes I do change it all the time...I tend to use one lot and then I just get fed up of using it and change to a different one!! This time I have decided to give this Full Restore 5 Repairing Shampoo/Conditioner ago, I bought this in TESCO for only €2.89 as it was on offer!!


The next item I bought was this PALMOLIVE AROMA THERAPY SHOWER GEL, I'm a huge fan of Shower Gels/Creams that smell gorgeous and this one certainly does!! This shower gel is infused with Ylang-Ylang and Iris!! I bought this for only €1.29 in TESCO. Another Item I bought was this DOVE PURELY PAMPERING BODY WASH which has the scent of COCONUT MILK WITH JASMINE PETALS in it...I bought this also in TESCO for only €1.49 as it was on offer!!


The last two items that I bought were these two BATISTE DRY SHAMPOO (FLORAL & FLIRTY BLUSH) if you have already read my blogs in the past, you will have already seen that I am HUGE fan of this Dry Shampoo. I bought this for only €2.49 each in ALDI'S, with it been at that price I just had to buy two of them!! :-)

MAKE-UP MONDAY: MY MAKE-UP HAUL!!

Hi Guy's and Welcome to today's Blog Post, I hope you are all having a lovely day and I hope you all had a lovely Weekend too!! First and foremost as you can probably tell I was absent from the blog for the past week that's because I decided to take a week off as we have added some new arrivals to our family, two little kittens Sasha and Amber!! They are super cute and ever so good!! Here's a pic of them....


So back to today's blog post and as I was absent from last weeks, I'm going to start off with all of last weeks going on's. I did some much needed shopping (well mostly make-up shopping), I did however do some Clothes Shopping too, which I will be sharing in my FASHION FRIDAY BLOG, so make sure to Check it Out!!

Anyway back to today's blog post as its Monday, it can only mean its MAKE-UP MONDAY, and for today's one I'm going to share with you all this MAKE-UP HAUL, which I did last Saturday. I went to two diffrent shops so I have just combined both of the make-up products that I bought in to one MAKE-UP HAUL!!


MY TRIP TO THE COSMETIC OUTLET, MEATH STREET DUBLIN 8

So on Saturday, I decided to do some shopping in town which was mostly for Make-up Products in a shop called The Cosmetic Outlet!! Here's the story....A few days ago I was having a look around Facebook and I came across a page called 'The Cosmetic Outlet', the shop is located on Meath Street in Dublin 8 or better known as The Liberties. So I decided to pop up and have a look at some of the products that they supply!!
On my arrival to the shop, I was greeted by a load of make-up products such as Eyeshadow Palettes, Make-up Brushes, Contour Palettes, Blusher Palettes, Tanning Products and a load more other make-up products too. Also the shop supplied a range of brands such as Rimmel, Benefit, L'Oreal, Max Factor and other brands too which was fantastic!!

As per usually when it comes to looking at make-up, I tend to look at every product before making my mind up as to what I want to buy in my case...I wanted EVERYTHING...but my budget wasn't that big to buy EVERYTHING!! :-( One thing I do have to say is that this is the shop to go to if you want great offers on Make-up, I love it and I will no doubt be back visiting again really soon. Also the staff were really nice and helpful too which I love to see!! :-)


NOW ON TO WHAT I BOUGHT!!

So here is what I bought at 'The Cosmetic Outlet'.

Up first I bought this BRONZING POWDER by BOURJOIS, I absolutely love Bourjois Make-up products. I have been using their Eyeshadow Pots and Blushers for the past few years, but I never used their bronzer before, so I'm looking forward to start using it!! 


When I first seen this product, it looked like a book and then when you open it, it looks like four squares of Chocolate and smells like it too. The bronzer is a real natural shade which I love. I bought this for €5.00 which was fantastic as some other shops that sell this tend to charge a lot more!!



Next I then bought this CAMOUFLAGE KIT CREAM CONCEALER PALETTE by W7. I bought this basically to try it out on my skin as i rarely every buy concealer ( I only every buy the Cover Stick which I find great). But when I seen this, I just decided I would give it a go.


In the CAMOUFLAGE KIT you get five different shades in total. The shades that are in the palette would suit Light and Medium Skin tones, but you could mix two shades together to match your skin tone.  The palette comes with an inside mirror and also an application brush too. 


I bought this Palette for only €5.00 which was incredible cheap for such a good product. I will be doing a review on this in the next couple of weeks so make sure to Check it out!!



I then bought this W7 IN THE BUFF NATURAL NUDES EYE COLOUR PALETTE. In some ways this looks quite similar to the 'Naked Palette' by Urban Decay but way more cheaper at just €10.00 as the Naked Palette can cost around €44.00 here in Ireland. 


It consists of 12 Neutral and Nude shades, 9 Shimmer/Satin Shades and 3 mattes. It has a great mix of very wearable eyeshadows and there is not one shade in the palette that I do not like.


 The eyeshadow's are surprisingly 'highly pigmented', which is fantastic as I love shades that have a great depth of colour. I can't wait to start using this palette in my Make-up Tutorials and creating everyday make-up looks!!


From left to right here is a list of the shades that are in this palette:


Left-Right: Buff, Camel, Sand, Dust, Chocolate, Topaz, Earth, Storm, Silk, Wave, Thunder, Onyx


The final Item I bought from 'The Cosmetic Outlet' was these gorgeous MADISON PROFESSIONAL MAKE-UP BRUSHES, which are made with Natural Hair. 


In the set I got 7 brushes in total including this beautiful Leather Brush Bag which is fantastic as you can bring them with you if your going travelling or on holiday!! I bought the whole set for only €20.00 which was fantastic for such a gorgeous set of brushes!!




The brushes included our:

LARGE POWDER BRUSH


FLAT FOUNDATION BRUSH


LARGE EYE-SHADOW BRUSH


STIPPLING BRUSH


SMALL EYE-SHADOW BRUSH


LIP BRUSH


ANGLED EYE-SHADOW BRUSH


On to some more Make-up products that I bought in a different shop (I can't remember the name).

The first product I bought was this MATCH 2 COVER CONCEALER by ESSENCE which I bought for only €2.00 BARGAIN!! 


 This Cover Concealer has a cream texture which I can not wait to try out!!



Next I bought 2 of these MINI LIPGLOSS SET'S by ESSENCE for only €1.00 each. I actually bought these 2 to put in my GIVEAWAY that I'm going to be doing for my blog. I haven't yet decided when I'm going to be doing it, but do CHECK BACK to my blog to keep uptodate with it!!


The final two products I bought was MY BASE ILLUMINATING MAKE-UP BASE by ESSENCE and MY BASE SKIN PERFECTION MAKE-UP BASE which is also by ESSENCE, I bought both of these for only €2.00 each.

'MY BASE' ILLUMINATING MAKE-UP BASE


'MY BASE' SKIN PERFECTION MAKE-UP BASE

MY YOUNGBLOOD MAKEUP LAUNCH REVIEW!!

Hi Guys and Welcome to today's Blog Post, I hope you all had a lovely weekend. I had quite weekend which was nice, as I got the chance to catch up on some much needed blogging!! I did however go to the beach on Saturday which was lovely, I always like getting at least one walk done throughout the weekend!! On to some Beauty News, I wanted to share with you all this gorgeous NAIL POLISH that I bought on Friday, Its by the ESSENCE RANGE COLOUR & GO in the SHADE 114 FAME FATAL. I used it on my nails in FRIDAY'S BLOG POST for MY 4TH OF JULY NAIL ART LOOK!! 


Anyway moving on to today's blog post, as today is Monday it can only mean it's....MAKEUP MONDAY...so for this weeks blog I'm going to be finally sharing with all of you MY YOUNGBLOOD MAKEUP LAUNCH BLOG POST which I attended over two months ago...yes its been that long!! Throughout the blog, I will be attaching some pictures I took at the launch too.


Better late then never......

Lets get to it!!

So as you all probably seen a on my Twitter/Facebook/Instagram pages back in late May, (that's if you can bring your mind back to it), I was invited to the Closer2Fabulous Studio, Clare Street, Dublin 2 (http://closer2fabulous.ie/) for the launch of Youngblood Ireland #World of Colour 2014. I was invited through twitter by the lovely Elaine Hession, who is a Fashion Stylist for Irish Wedding Diary Magazine. She is also a Makeup Artist and a Beauty Blogger for Closer2Faboulous Studio.

On my arrival to the Studio I was greeted by the lovely Elaine Hession. Elaine then introduced me to the lovely Debbie Leonard who is a Makeup Artist (MUA) and who also sells the Youngblood Mineral Cosmetic Collection on her website: http://closer2fabulous.ie/

A Picture of the Make-up on show at the Launch!!

After our meet and greet, I was then introduced to International MUA Philip Luque who gave me an introduction into the YOUNGBLOOD PRODUCTS and some new products that our due to hit stores in the coming months.

One product that stood out by far for me and that was these Highly Pigmented Gold, Sliver and Bronze Eyeshadows due to be arriving in stores in the next couple of months (sorry I didn't manage to get a pic of them)....I can not wait to try them out as I love using shades that are rich in colour and that stand out too!! EXCITING!!

Mineral Powder

One thing I really enjoyed about the launch was how Philip Luque demonstrated each of the products and also allowing me to test each product whether it was foundation or eyeliner. He also showed me how the products are so versatile, first he mixed 'Loose Mineral Foundation Powder' with the 'Mineral Primer' to create a full coverage substance which went on like a liquid foundation but felt weightless on the skin. From looking at how versatile the Youngblood Products are, personally I feel you can be quite adventurous with these products and create fabulous colours, tones and textures.



For those of you who don't no a lot about the YOUNGBLOOD RANGE, here is a brief description...

Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics is a Professional Luxury Mineral Cosmetic Line made of Natural Finely Ground Minerals from the Earth without any of the common irritants (including Chemicals, Dyes and Preservative) which are found in Conventional Makeup. Youngblood Cosmetics was founded by Pauline Youngblood Soli in 1996.


Pauline's aim was to create a line that was natural and realistic on the skin for people who have had severely traumatized skin from Harsh Laser Treatments, Acne, Rosacea and Cosmetic Surgeries. Youngblood Mineral Makeup is a beauty brand with not just one, but an entire host of products to help lighten, tighten, nourish and promote healthy skin. The Make-up Range is a very dynamic and is very rich in colour!! Youngblood products are incredible easy to use, they are long lasting, they even stand up to heat, humidity and perspiration.

GOODY BAG TIME!!

In my Goody Bag, I received 4 gorgeous Make-up Products.


The first one I'm going to start with is this glowing MINERAL RADIANCE BRONZER in a SPLENDOR SHADE, These bronzer's are used to Contour, Define, Highlight and add a golden glow of radiance to the face that lasts throughout the day. I can't wait to start using this, as now that we our in summer I feel this is the perfect Make-up product to have on your face through out these summer months!!



The Second product I received was this EYELINER PENCIL, that is sharpen to a fine point for precision for using when getting that over all smoky look on the eyes!! The Shade I received was this CHESTNUT SHADE, which I can not wait to try out on my eyes...oh and creating that smoky look too!!


The Third product I received was this fabulous LIPSTICK from their range, Oh I do love Lipsticks!! The Youngblood Lipstick range contains a special blend of natural oils and vitamins which remains lustrous for hours. The Shade I received this Lipstick in was in DEBALICIOUS (a light pinky shade) which is absolutely gorgeous, I can't wait to start wearing it!!


The fourth and final product I received in my Youngblood Goody Bag, was this PRESSED MINERAL EYESHADOW QUAD...In the shade MOULIN ROUGE. The shades of each eyeshadow on the quad is as follows: CAN-CAN, REVUE, CABARETS and RED LIGHT!! I had my eye on these when MUA Philip Luque was introducing me to the Youngblood Range, so as you can all probably tell...I am DELIGHTED I received this!! The quad contains four rich shadows (high pigments). The talc-free formula sweeps on like silk and wears for hours on your eyes. Can't wait to try this out!!
