My current favourite lip combination

I made a bit of an extravagant purchase a few weeks ago, I mean €33 for a lipstick but OMG it is so pretty and glamourous, I’m talking about the YSL Rouge Volupte shine No: 09 in the shade nude in private. I couldn’t resist.

I’ve been pairing it with Rimmel’s exaggerate lip liner in Eastend Snob, which is a pinky nude, I line and fill my lips in before topping it off with the YSL.

This lipstick feels literally like butter, it’s so smooth and has a gorgeous shine but with no stickiness and is surprisingly long wearing. The colour is a shade or two darker than your natural lip colour , I’ve been wearing it everyday and I love it, yes it was €33 but the quality is amazing and the packaging is so glamourous .

Below you will see it on its own then just the lip liner then both together.

You can buy the YSL nude in private from http://www.debenhams.ie for €33
And the Rimmel Eastend snob from http://www.boots.ie

It’s Christmas Time!!!

Well it’s that time of year again, cozying up by the fire, drinking hot chocolate and watching Christmas films with loved ones.

I have to say Christmas is my most favourite time of the year, and this year will be my first Christmas in my new house (Totes Excited).

I cannot wait to decorate it, but as I plan all my festive decorations (I want to give Santa’s Grotto a run for it’s money) I realise just how expensive Christmas can be, your tree, decorations, lights,garlands, wreathes, presents, new clothes and your big food shop, it all adds up so I’ve been trying my best to find my Christmas bargains.

There are two shops that have bee a life saver for me,

No 1. Penneys, not only are their decorations fab but they are sooooo reasonable, my entire tree will be mostly Penney’s decorations (I’ll do a tree post soon), I’ve also bought a lot of Christmas nik naks like these two Christmas mugs, one Santa and one Reindeer, only €2.50 each you cannot go wrong.

No 2. Homestore & more, half price Christmas lights, OMG an absolute Godsend, they have this offer every December I purchased 3 boxes of 200 white LED lights for €17.50 each, that’s a saving of €52.50 and I did check all other shops, B&Q, woodies etc. and no where came even close, they also have half price Christmas candles which are great as presents.

What shops are your go to shops when Christmas rolls around?

Would you like to see a ‘How I decorate my tree’ post?

Penneys, €2.50

Sleek brow kit in medium, Review

i was in Liverpool recently and stopped by super drug to browse their sleek range, needless to say I picked up a few bits. One of which was the brow kit in medium, it’s a little compact with a powder and wax, you also get 2 brushes and a mini tweezers (it’s so cute) very handy for your handbag and the brushes are great for applying the product (I don’t usually like the brushes provided). I was very impressed with how natural my eyebrows looked after I used it, sleek products are great and very pigmented, well worth the price tag, you can get them from http://www.cloud10beauty.com for €9.99
