Hey guys,

Sorry its been so long since my last post, had alot going on in my personal life. Anyway as everyone knows where in a recession:(.Thats tainted word has been broadcasted by every means for a number of media broadcasters.

This recession is proving more difficult then I could ever imagin unfortuantly..

I have definantly tighted my belt over the past few months and had my own project 10 pan, but unfortunantly mine was'nt by choice..

Anyway this week, EVERYTHING decide to run out, foundation, powder, facial scrub, make up whips, lipstick, lip gloss, vaseline, favorite bronzer, mascara! haha

So now i need to rob a bank in order to fund everything again....Okay maybe I wont robe a bank but I certainly need to look at other means..

So this is where my beautiful followers come in, I need you to suggest more pocket friends options to replace my make up...

In Ireland we have a debs(prom) in you final year after the exams, mine is the 5th of august, the fancy expensive dress,the limo,hair,nails,tan,date everything is expected and yesturday i had to canel going so naturally Im feeling very down about missing such a exciting night in a teenage girls calender...

Hey guys,
So today I'm doing another review, this time on a eyebrow product
(I broke my camera so currently cant get pictures to my blog :( so having to use pictures from other sources, therefore the picture I am using here is'nt the exact one I have but very similar, sorry:( )

Basically this kit is for your eyebrows but can also be used as a liner ,which is VERY handy..For my eyebrows l don't really like using a pencil, personally they make my eyebrows look as though they have been drawn on, which l dont like and almost makes the hairs clump together. I will admit I havent spent much money on a eye brow pencil which is prob the cause of this problem.
This little kit is powder but it does'nt feel as though its ''powdery''. Its nothing like a eyeshadow and is applyed very very easy.
I really like this product. its compact, stays in place all day,has two great colours which you can mix together or use seperatly in order to suit your eyebrow shade. The one in the picture above also comes in different shade

''Shape and groom eyebrows, and colour them too. Each Kit comes with two shades of colour and a compact brush. With Community Trade marula oil.''

I have had this product for 3 years and is still almost new looking!

I also own the above mini brush set by the bodyshop and use the angled brush with the eyebrow set..
Have you ever tried this? Do you recommend anything different??

Can I start this post by saying
I <3>
Sorry Im slightly excited, but I really do love this foundation, Iv tried soooo many different foundations and this is by far my favorite (I always love the estee Lauder Double wear).
This is affordable and brilliant!!!
It lasts, doesnt transfer and is lightweight. When I wear this I dont feel as though I'm wearing a foundation at all which is brilliant especially during the summer months.It also doesnt break you out BRILLIANT!! Im currently using the normal to dry skin one but think I need to change to the combination to oily one as my skin has changed during the summer months.
PS: I Have been using this product for about 6 weeks and like to do this with all my foundations before reviewing them incase of breakouts etc


''why we love it:Highlight and contour cheekbones in one sexy sweep with this box of satiny pink and bronze powders. They're a perfect 10!

What else you need to know:Complete with soft, natural-bristle cheek brush. Easy step-by-step contouring lesson included.
Product details
10g Net Wt / 0.35 oz
winner of:
2008 Working Mother Beauty Awards "Best bronzer/highlighter" ''

When you visit the Benefit website this is what you can read about the benefit 10 product, Heres what I think.

I first got this product during christmas of 2007 from 3 dear friends as part of my christmas pressie <3.
First i'll be 100% honest I've gone through a love hate relationship with this product, Loved it could'nt live without it to Never reached for it found it to shimmery yada yada to loving it 100% again and its a must have, im strange I no.

NOW after having this product for some time I do love it. When l first got it I had'nt been introduced to the world of you tube or Blog or any of the such, I was a make up lover and have always been a make-up fan but not to the extent to what I am now, nor did I have the knowledge I know have (kinda :P). Its only since Christmas of 2008 I have been introduced to contouring. This has allowed my judgement of Benefit 10 'sexy sweep' to change as I now understand the product.

I have a few flaws, I still have and love this product BUT unfortunantly my pink side, the highlight, has completly run out, strange considering I always used the product as one and never used the highout more then the bronzer side.It has a far more powdery consistency then the bronzer and appeared to break alot easyer.. BOOOOOOO!!

All in all I did enjoy this product considering it took a year for me to really understand the product, Im a little STUPPPPIT :P.

Have you ever used it?? what did you think? Is there a good dube?

At the Races

Hey everyone,
Last weekend it was the Irish Derby here in Ireland, at the curragh. Im not a racing girl at all, nor do I intend on becoming one, I really have no interest in betting etc BUT when the opportunity arose to attend the races on the firday night my head automatically taught DRESSING UP TIME. What girl does'nt enjoy getting all dressed up??

The firday night is very much a local night, sunday is the ladies day and is PACKED! and saturday is also very busy but friday although it is busy is less OTT in comparison with the other race days. This meant I did'nt have to dress up to the the degree as other would of during the other days. I opted for a simple black dress from River Island

Unsure whether to wear a colour or stay black with the shoes I asked the world of twitter to decide...
I wore the black New look Heels, which are slightly to big, there a size 5 and Im a 4 and a half:(
My hair was done by a friend of mine who is brilliant at hair :O did my hair for me, just a simple plait accross the top and a bit of volume, while I did my own make-up, no suprizes there then..
Earnings are Awear :D
