My boo was working valentines day this year so we decided to spend the Saturday in Dublin shopping and stuff!! So this is a mini haul of the makeup stuffs I got in Dublin!!
First off I got Urban Decays All Nighter setting spray in Debenhams and to my surprise and delight they were having a 10% off sale so i got it for 25 instead of 27 YAY!!! I have not tried this yet and Im sooo excited to try it :) ill do a full review soon!! :)

Next thing I got were 2 Bourjois eyeshadows! I got 2 because I really wanted the peach shimmery one for ages and they were buy one get one half price and I cant pass up a bargain!! I got the 2 for just 15 euro! My boyfriend will tell you it took me AGES to pick the second colour and it did but you have to take your time and choose right and I think I did!!

These are the swatches the peach is no were near as shimmery as it is in real life its like fairy puke sooooo sparkely!! They have great staying power and I love them!!

What I am looking forward to trying in 2013!!

I have been researching soooo many products online over the last week and I am sooo excited to try some of them!!
I have ordered my sample concealer kit from Keromask. I am mad to find a great concealer somthign that covers everything and also doesnt go rotten under my eyes!!! this sample kit costs just 6 euro and you get 8 shades of concealer 3 mixers and 3 powders!!! It can be used to conceal tattoos so I have high hopes!!

I will be purchasing a Makeup setting spray next week I am pretty certain Im going to try Urban decays All Nighter as it has some great reviews. Its about 25 euro which a little more than I want to spend but it sounds to be the best one available!!

I am crazy excited to try Illamasqua Gleam I just have to wait till its back in stock on there website!! It is supose to be an amazing subtle natural highlighter!! It costs 18 pounds but it is only just over 10 for people with the Pro discount!! :)

I was in Boots yesterday and I tried a Bourjois intense eyeshadow on my hand and now I am mad to have it!! I cant remember for certain which one it is I think its number 02!! This pic doesnt show the amazing peach intensly shimmery shadow I am in love with but when I get it I will swatch and take pics!! :)

I also have to find some great lipliners!! I have no idea where to start any recommendations please!!!
Any recommendations for any products you love and think I should try are welcome I am always on the look out for my new faves!!! xxx

2012 Beauty Faves!!

So I am gona tell you all about my fave buys of last year!!
There wernt loads (I was pretty broke through 2012 lol)!
First off are The Real Technique brushes I got the orange core set for mothers day and the purple starter set for xmas. I LOVE THESE BRUSHES!!! Thet are soft they hold the powder brilliantly and they are all so versatile  I use the detailer brush as a lipstick brush and its the best one I have ever had!!! the buffing brush is great for stippling on liquid r cream foundations!! the accent brush is great for eyeliner and the eyeliner brush is great for accenting!!

Next is MAC Studio fix fluid and powder!!
I have been using these nearly a year and I know they are expensive but I feel are worth it!! The powder has lasted me 10 months and I still have some left!! The fluid foundation lasted me about 4 months as I mixed it with a different foundation for day time and only wore it on its own for nights out and special occasions!!
They cost about 30 euro each and you have to buy the pump separate for the liquid which sucks but at least then you can use it for your next bottles of foundation!!
I love the product and the colour selection (I hear they are comming out with a nw nc 10 for us pale beauties) The coverage is amazing from both!

Another foundation I loved last year was the Revlon Colour Stay the colour range is great you can get each one in dry or oily skin which is brilliant!! And the price isnt appalling (especially if you wait till boots has a sale n get 3 for 2) 18 euro a bottle! the coverage is great and any clients I use this on love it!!

This one is especially for those of you with sensitive eyes!! I cant use normal mascara and it was so hard to find a good sensitive mascara and I totally did it La Roche Posay have an amazing range of mascaras for sensitive eyes!!! I have the wateproof and the volumising and they are great no watery eyes and great looking lashes!! And it only costs 17 euro so it wont break the bank!!

The next thing I bought a couple of weeks ago but I cant leave it out is the Sleek ultra matte darks palette!! Sleek just keeps getting better and better I loved my old Sleek palettes but some how these are 10 time better!! the colours are all beautiful and the pigmentation is beautiful and they are so soft and blend together soooo well and they only cost 7 pounds INSANE!!!

So they are my faves from 2012 I hope you agree!! :) x
