For today's post i'm going to be sharing with you all my October Glossybox Unboxing Post as this month's Glossybox arrived in the post. I am so excited to share with you all this months products as this months box its a collaboration with Beauty and Lifestyle Vlogger Estee Lalonde.

So without further a do i introduce October's Glossybox........

and as you can see this month its a plain pink Glossybox!!
First up is the Editorial Piece which is Guest Edited by Estee Lalonde who gives us an introduction into this month's Glossybox. 

She also mentions in this month's edit that she has a new Book out called 'Bloom' where she talks about 'how this Philosophy has helped shape me into the person i am today'. 

Estee also mentions that with this months box you can experiment with amazing products that will help you feel your best.
There is five products in this months box along with a mystery sixth product so lets dive in and see what is in this months box......


So up first is this Full Sized Lip Parfait-Buttery Lip Cream from Trifle Cosmetics. This really pretty nude shade is infused with Vitamin E which keeps lips plumped and hydrated and the pigments are silicone coated so the shade won't dull or become feathery looking!! 
This Lip Parfait simply glides straight on to your lips creating a creamy matte finish to your lips. You also have the option to blend it with your UB Secret Flush to amp up the colour for that perfect rose pink hue look. I am defiantly looking forward to trying out this Lip Parfait, i love the shade and its ideal for any Autumn look. I also love the packaging of this product product which is really cute!!

Price: £12.95


Next up is this Travel Sized 'Drops of Youth Concentrate' Serum from the Body Shop. This is amazing for skin that's showing the first signs of ageing as it helps to enhance surface skin leaving it soft, smooth and looking brighter and fresher.  
Plus, its certified Organic which means its 100 per cent natural. Simply apply a few drops to your face in the mornings and evenings and massage into your skin using upward strokes. I'm looking forward to trying this out on my skin, as i'm near to entering my thirty's this will defiantly come in handy in keeping my skin soft and smooth.

Price: £25.00


The third product out of this month's box is this Full Sized Secret Flush, Smoothing Cream Blusher & Lip Stain Duo from Universal Beauty Cosmetics. This is a clever multi-tasker that should be put inside every makeup bag!! 
Simply Smile and Blend over the apples of your cheeks and with the innovative formula this will create a subtle flush of colour on your cheeks, plus you can even glide it onto your lips for a pretty dash of pink as well!! This Blush & Lip Stain duo is ideal to have in your makeup bag especially when your on the go, so i'm looking forward to giving it a go and seeing how this product works!!

Price: £15.00


Next up is this Full Sized Honey & Camelina Facial Exfoliator from Bee Good. This exfoliator is suitable for all skin types, this really does tick a trio of boxes as it exfoliates, hydrates and calms the skin. 
Also with it containing Lavender this gently lifts and exfoliates dulling dead skin cells without irritation while the wheatgerm oil soothes and moisturises and the British Propolis helps balance problematic complexions. I cannot wait to try this exfoliator, i have tried products from the Bee Good Range and I absolutely love them!!

Price: £10.50


On to the Fifth Product from this months box and its this P.S Pro Graphic Eyeliner Pen from Primark. 
This felt tip liner has been engineered in Japan and is super easy to use allowing you to carefully create either a thin, thick or intense black feline flick, also its even water resistant and long lasting which means it won't smudge or move from the eye area. I'm looking forward to trying this out, as we are now in Halloween season its the perfect time to create that ultimate feline flick!!

Price: £3.00
Shop: Selected Primark Stores 


So the last and final product from this month's box is this Mystery Product and its a Shampoo the only thing is.....we have to guess what brand it is by using the Shampoo on are hair and then visit to find out the big brand reveal later in the month. 
By smelling the Shampoo itself i think it could be Head and Shoulders as it does smell very like it, but we may wait and see!! :-)

I hope you all enjoyed the products from October's Glossybox, there is some really exciting products to try out!! 
I will be doing a review on this box later on next week so make sure to check back to the blog!!

I decided to go along to the 'Makeup Revolution Masterclass' last Thursday Evening as i was really interested in hearing more about the brand and its products. The Masterclass took place in Bradley's Pharmacy Arklow where the lovely Ciara from Matte to Metallic was the Makeup Artist on the night who was hosting the Masterclass,  as Matte to Metallic are Brand Ambassadors for the Makeup Revolution range.
On the night Ciara gave some fantastic information on the Makeup Revolution range and she also gave us some really good tips and tricks on applying makeup such as applying Primer, Foundation, eyeshadows and lots more.

She also demonstrated a makeup look using products from the Makeup Revolution range in which she created a Smokey Eye look using some fantastic Shades which represented autumn.

Unfortunately i only took one picture of the Masterclass as i was super busy recording it over on my Snapchat, if any of you guys were lucky enough to see the snaps over on my snapchat then you would have seen nearly the whole masterclass!!
I did however get one picture of Ciara (from Matte to Metallic) applying Makeup to the model.

The Masterclass was amazing to watch and it was also really interesting to learn all the different products from the Makeup Revolution Range and which way to apply them too the face along with adding so tricks and techniques to creating that perfect look!!

After the Masterclass was over, i got to have a look at some of the Products from the Makeup Revolution Range and of course buy some of the products too. There were so many products to look at and buy but i was very good and just decided to buy one product that been The Makeup Revloution 'Fortune Favours The Brave' Palette which consists of 30 Eye-shadows by BritishBeautyBlogger. 
I have been waiting ages to get my hands on it ever since it was released, but every-time i went online to buy it, it was always out of stock i'm not surprised because its a gorgeous palette with some amazing shades in it!! 

So here is a quick picture of the palette in question, I love the shades and i can't wait to try out some looks using this amazing palette!!

Price: €15.00
Shop: Bradley's Pharmacy Arklow

After purchasing my Palette we also got giving a gorgeous goodie bag full of Vichy and La Roche Posay Sample Products to try out.

Hello my Lovelies,

Welcome to today's post, i hope you are all having a lovely day so far also how was everyone's Weekend, i hope you all had a great one, i decided to head out with some of the girls for some lovely food and drinks so it was really nice evening to spend it with some great friends!!

On to today's post and for today's one i'm going to be sharing with you all my September Favourites. I really can't believe we are in October already,  this year is going really quick and soon enough i will be sharing with you all my Christmas's posts, but lets save that for December, moving on to the products in which i have loved using for the month of September. This month there has been a wide variety of products in which i have loved using, if you want to find out which products have made it into my favorites post then keeping reading below............


So my first favorite for the month of September is this Le Mara Micellar Cleansing Water, i bought this a couple of months ago and never got a chance to use it and since i have ran out of my Garnier Micellar Water its the perfect time to try out this one.  
This Micellar Water is a deep cleansing water containing organic sea minerals, extracts and vitamin E which simply removes makeup and cleanses your skin in one single step. With it rich in organic seaweed and hand harvested in the West of Ireland its the most perfect cleansing water to use as its natural and causes no irritation to the skin. I love to use this especially in the evenings when i'm taking off my makeup as it takes it off in seconds along with removing stubborn eye makeup such as eyeliner and mascara.

Price: €2.99
Shop: aldi stores
Score: 10/10


Next up is this Eyeshadow Palette which is from MUA (Makeup Academy). I got this in my August Glossybox, i received the Glitter Ball Shades where there is a variety of shades to try out for any makeup look. 
The shades are spectacular as they will add sparkle to my eyes for that ultimate look. Not only do i love the shades within this palette, but i also love the pigments of colour as they are high in colour which i love to see in eyeshadow palettes. I have been using this palette on a daily basics as most of shades are ideal to use in creating a lovely day and evening look.

Price: £4.00
Score: 9/10


On to my third favourite for the month of September and its this Lash Curler from Hairspray. I was in need of a new Lash Curler as the other lash curler i have hasn't been working as well as what it would normally be. 
So one of the days i decided to pop into Hairspray and i had seen they had stocked lash curlers, so i decided to buy one to try it out. I was amazed at how well this lash curler worked, it simply curlers the lashes in seconds and then just finish off with a small amount of mascara to define them.

Price: €1.00
Shop: Hairspray
Score: 10/10


Next up is this B Sculpted Contour Kit. I got this in a Glossybox a while back and never got around to using it until now. The kit comes with a dark contour powder and a creamy highlighter. I love using this when creating my day and night time looks as the kit works for both looks.

I especially love how the dark powder contours my cheekbones/forehead and the neck line, while i love how the highlighter highlights my upper brow bones, the center of my nose and my cupids bow. This is a gorgeous kit to have not only in your makeup collection but in your makeup bag as its small and handy to carry around in your bag when your out and about to add some contouring and highlight to your face.

Price: £10.49
Shop: Superdrug
Score: 10/10


On to my fifth favourite for this month and its this Tresemme Colour Vibrance Protection Shampoo and Conditioner.
 If you don't already know i like to change up my shampoo and conditioner nearly every month because i'm generally never happy with sticking to one shampoo/condition for a couple of months. But I have to say with this Tresemme Colour Vibrance Shampoo/conditioner this is working wonders on my hair, not only does it keep my colored hair looking vibrant for weeks but it is also leaving my hair feeling incredible soft too.

Price: €5.60
Shop: Tesco Stores
Score: 9/10


On to my last favourite for the month of September and its this Eye Brow Brush from the P.S Beauty range from Penney's. I love using this as it helps define my brows when i apply my favourite brow product. 
What i really like about this Brow Brush is the fact that it is a double ended brush which has a small angled brush on one side and a spoolie on the other which helps in defining my brows. 

Price : €2.00 
Shop: Penney's (Primark)
Score: 10/10

I hope you all enjoyed my post on my September Favourites.

Hello my Lovelies,

Welcome to today's post, i hope you all had a lovely Weekend, its now back to a busy week ahead starting with today's post.

For today's one I'm going to be sharing with you all my August Glossybox Un-boxing Post. My Glossybox arrived during the week and I'm exciting to share with you all what i got.

This months Glossybox is in collaboration with Red Magazine and this month we have 6 products inside which include four full sized products and two sample sizes.

What i love about this months box is that the box itself is....Red as its all to do with the collaboration with Red Magazine plus its one of my favourite colours.

Now on to what is inside this months box and up first is the editorial piece which is from Annabel Meggeson who is the Beauty Director of Red Magazine. 
Annabel introduces us all to this months box by outlining the products inside along with a sneek peek of one of the product's that is going to be in October's Glossybox!!
So moving on to the products inside this month's box as you can see there is a selection of some really nice products, so lets dive in.........

Up first i received this sample sized product from the Body Shop which contained a sample of their new Superfood Face Masks, the one in which i received was the Himalayan Charcoal which purify s the face as well as giving it a glow.

Next up is this Hydro Face Mask, i love a good face mask especially when it has been one of those days!! This Hydro Face Mask is inspired by Korean Technology, it simply infuses your skin with a heavy dose of moisture and keeps it hydrated for up to 120 hours which is nearly a week!! This mask is set to be just as big as sheet masks, Hydro Gel masks have a lot better ability to hold moisture than their cotton counterparts and what's more, they're made from a slicker material that sticks to the face easier which means there is no slipping!!

I'm looking forward to trying this mask out as i'm a huge fan of facemasks and i tend to apply one to my face twice a week.

Price: £7.99

Next up is this Smokey Eye Pen which is from Rodial. This is the perfect eye pen to create a neat line of jet black along your lash line or blend it out to create a smokey finish and with its super rich pigment, gel texture and smudging brush means your options are endless. I love using a good Smokey eye pen or pencil so i'm defiantly looking forward to using this and creating some really nice day and evening looks with it!!

Price: £17.00

On to my third item and it's this Antioxidant Lip Balm from The Organic Pharmacy. This is a rich nourishing balm infused with shea butter, pomegranate, rose hip and vitamin E to protect and restore lips. This is ideal for applying it to your lips on its own or on top of your lipstick. I will no doubt be keeping this in my handbag for the cold winter mornings when my lips do be super dry and in need of some moisture.

Price: £12.00

Next up is this Volumising Lip Booster from Catrice Cosmetics,  this lip booster is the secret to a plumper pout. With its menthol ingredients it volumises lips and hides any fine lines, alongside jojoba and almond oil to nourish the lips too. It glides on to your lips leaving a shiny, subtle tint of rose in its path. I'm really looking forward to trying out this lip booster, i am huge fan of lipsticks, glosses and lip balms so i will defiantly be giving this a go.

Price: £3.95

On to the last product from this month's box and its this Too Faced 'Better than Sex Mascara'. This collagen-fueled formula thickens and lengthens lashes, and gives them a beautiful, inky black finish. By applying just one coat this creates a subtle boost in volume and you can simply still carry on building it up to create a more dramatic look to your lashes. I am defiantly looking forward to giving this a go, i have heard some amazing things about the Too Faced brand and can't wait to try out this amazing mascara. 

Price: £19.00 (full sized product)

I hope you all enjoyed this post on this months box.

I will be doing a review on this box later on next week so make sure to check back to the blog!!

Hello my Lovelies,

Welcome to today's post, I hope you are all having a lovely day!!

For today's post I am going to be sharing with you all my August Favourites post. I can't really believe we are in September already, this summer has went so quick but i'm looking forward to Autumn especially using the more intensive moisturisers and serums to prep my skin for winter along with all the Autumn clothes and styles.

But now on to the products in which i have been loving for the month of August. There has been quite a few products i have been loving and even though i would have loved to put them all in to this post, i have narrowed it down to six products.


Up first i'm going to start off my August Favourites post with this Black Liquid Eyeliner from the Makeup Gallery range at Dealz. I bought this a few weeks ago as i was very intrigued to try out more products from the Makeup Gallery range. I decided to give the Liquid Eyeliner a go as its a product i love to use when creating evening or night-time looks. Since using the eyeliner i have found it to be amazing and so easy to apply to your top lash lines. 
The Brush at the end of the actual eyeliner is thin and makes it very easy to achieve a straight thin or thick link on your top lash lines. It is also long lasting and wears for up to 24 hours on the eyes which again makes it perfect for night-time looks. I would defiantly recommend this eyeliner as i absolutely love it and feel it is defiantly up their with the top eyeliners currently on the market.

PRICE: €1.50
SCORE: 10/10

Next up is this De-tangled Brush from Hairon, i received this in July's Glossybox and since then i haven't stopped using it. I especially love to use this just after i have washed my hair as it becomes super tangled due to my hair been really long. The brush simply de-tangles my hair using a gentle brushing method, which leaves my hair tangled free. You can also use it on dry hair too and with it been a small brush it can simply fit in your makeup bag so that you can carry it in your handbag when your out and about. 
Not only do I love how this brush leaves my hair tangled free but i also love the how the brush has been designed, as it has been designed to fit in the palm of your hand for more grip when brushing your hair through. I also love the colour too as its a real 'Tiffney Blue' shade. I would defiantly recommend this Hairon De-tangling brush to everyone especially if you have really long hair that tangles quite easy because this really does in work wonders on maintaining tangled free hair.

PRICE: £6.99
SCORE: 9/10


On to my third product and its this Botanics Purifing Face Scrub. I love using a good face scrub especially this one as i like to use it first thing in the mornings as it not only wakes me up but it buffs away impurities to reveal brighter healthier skin. I love how it exfoliates my skin and leaves it feeling soft and incredible smooth. 
The scrub contains refining walnut shell to buff away flaky skin while the crushed apricot seeds gently sweep away any impurities. Also with the scrub containing hibiscus which is a natural brightness booster that brightens skin along with smoothing the skin too. I would defiantly recommend this scrub to anyone who is looking for brighter and smoother skin. 

PRICE; €2.99 (normal price €5.99)
SCORE: 10/10


Next up is this Vaseline Spray and Go Body Moisturiser, I decided to purchase this in the Cocoa Radiance Fragrance because it smelled absolutely gorgeous!!
This is the perfect moisturiser to use on your skin if you are in a rush in the mornings like me as this is a super quick moisturiser which you can just spray on your skin after having a shower in which it will absorb supper quick leaving you with very soft skin. 

PRICE: €6.00
SCORE: 9/10


On to my fifth favourite for the month of August and its this Nail Hardener Polish by Lacura which is from Aldi's. I decided to purchase due to the fact my nails had become very brittle and very soft. Since using this product my nails have become more harder and they have grown a lot longer. 
I like to apply two coats of this Nail Harder to my nails on non painted nails or over painted nails. It also leaves a glossy look to my nails which is really nice as it gives a natural look to them.

PRICE: €2.49
SCORE: 9/10


My last favourite for the month of August is this Icona Milano Emotion Allowed Mascara, I received this in my July Glossybox and throughout the month of August I really made use of applying it to my lashes as it is long lasting along with it been water, sweat and humidity resistant making it a faultless choice to wear in any weather or occasion.
The mascara itself gives lashes a bold look with its intense colour and the rich creamy formation is build able as it creates a defined look for the day and an amped up false lash effect for a gorgeous night-time look. Personally i have loved using this mascara as it simply creates a natural day-time look to a bold intense night-look in seconds. 

PRICE: £13.04
SCORE: 9/10
