Under the radar products

The beauty world is a fickle place. Often there are products that receive a lot of attention and hype. Sometimes this attention and hype is justified and other times not so much. Then you have products, that perform like a dream and yet get little to no attention from the online beauty gurus and makeup fans. […]

New Autumn releases from Mac

The Autumn is by far my favourite time of the year. As a teacher, I see September as the start of a new year, rather than January. For me, September is all about fresh starts, new clothes and of course the Autumn beauty releases. At this time of year I am ready to leave behind […]

Mac must haves

Have you ever gone into a Mac store and wanted to make a purchase but been completely overwhelmed by all the products? With so many products to pick from, it is hard to know exactly what is worth parting with your cash for. To help you treat yourself to something special, I have picked out […]

Ellie Goudling for Mac

I have to be honest. When I initially saw the press release photographs of the Ellie Goulding collection for Mac before Christmas, I thought it all looked a little blah! While I do love a bit of neutral makeup in my life, from the press pictures I just thought that everything looked the same and […]

The dupe that just isn’t a dupe!!

Beauty lovers are constantly searching out affordable alternatives to high end products. Over the past number of months, the beauty world has gone mad for finding the next budget product that is a dupe for its more expensive counterpart. Bloggers are constantly trying out new items in the hope of hitting gold and finding that […]

Mac blusher haul

With the winter fast approaching, it is time to bring a little colour into our lives and embrace glowy cheeks for the cold days ahead. When it comes to blushers, I have many favourites, but right up there at the top is Mac blushers. Yes I know, I am a more than a little bit […]

Mac Burgundy Times nine palette

If you’re looking for an easy to wear, versatile palette, that is perfect for travelling or indeed won’t take up lots of space in your makeup bag, then look no further than the beauty that is the Mac burgundy times nine palette. The burgundy times nine palette is part of the recent permanent palette releases […]

The Mac Haul

Seriously, could I milk these haul videos anymore? I have finally edited my final haul for you guys and this time it is packed full of products that you can actually get in Ireland, so be warned. This will not be good for your bank account, but if it is any consolation, you will look […]

Mac Pro Long Wear nourishing waterproof foundation

Sometimes there are products in your drawer that you want to write reviews for, but can’t because you opinion on the product changes so often. The Mac Pro long wear nourishing foundation is one of those products. I decided that, even though it is a bit of a Jekyll and Hyde review, it is about time […]

A little Mac haul

Ok so I am using the term haul a little loosely here as technically a haul is only a haul if you hand over your hard earned cash, but this week I received some seriously wonderful Mac products that I just had to share with you immediately. Over the coming weeks, I will be using […]

Become a bronzed goddess for summer

I actually blame JLo for my unrealistic expectations of what you can do with bronzer and a bronzing brush.  Seriously how does that woman look so well for 45!!! In my search for that JLo glow, I have gone through quite a number of bronzers in the hope of looking like a bronzed goddess. To help […]

Mac Extended Play GigaBlack lash mascara

Those of you reading the blog for a while now will know that I am a rather big fan of Mac and even that is putting my love for Mac lightly. However, as much as I love all things Mac, I have always avoided their mascaras for no reason at all, apart from the fact […]

Mac Peachykeen blusher

The love affair with Mac continues, and my latest love is this beautiful blusher for spring time, Peachykeen. I am placing full blame on Kate Mc Cormack makeup for this one, as I recently saw her rave about it on her Facebook page and it really would have been rude not to go out and […]

Mac mineralise skin finish Natural in Give Me Sun

A few weeks ago, my sister treated me to a makeover in Mac Galway for my hen party. As some of you may be aware, when you get your makeup done in Mac, the cost of the makeover is redeemable in product. I went for a full makeover, so that meant that I was able […]

5 Mac neutral lipsticks you need in your life

It is only a recent occurrence that I have gotten into the whole neutral lipstick thing, but it is easy to say that since I began last September with my Velvet Teddy purchase, the dalliance into something new has become a bit of an obsession! In my defence, I am on the hunt for the […]

The hunt for a Holy Grail Concealer

Finding a good concealer isn’t easy. What feels like silk on one person, might feel like cement for you. Everybody looks for something different from a concealer. Some want it to hide dark circles, while others may  want it to conceal spots. To help you in your search, I have picked out some of my […]

Kylie Jenner Inspired tutorial

Ok so take the name of this tutorial with a pinch of salt. I was stuck for a name! It’s really only the lips that look anyway Kylie Jenner inspired!! A few weeks ago, when heading off to Galway for the ITWBN event, I posted a picture of the makeup above. So many of you […]
