NYX HD Concealer Wand Review

Hello Beauties I hope you are all well 
Todays review is on the NYX HD Photogenic Concealers :) 
I have be dying to try this concealer out now for a very long time as I have heard so many great things about it.  I just never got around to trying it out until NYX became available in Ireland.  I liked the idea of buying these in person rather than online because that way I was able to tell which one would suit me better by swatching them.  Today I am going to show you 3 different shades of the NYX HD Concealer.  There are 12 different shades altogether in this concealer which is brilliant because you are guaranteed to find the shade suitable for you.  3 out of these 12 shades are different.  The 9 shades are from light to dark which is made suitable to match your skin tone 

Then there are 3 different shades or should I say corrective concealers 

One is green which is a concealer that cancels out redness in your skin 
Yellow which is suitable for those dreaded dark circles under the eyes 
Lastly there is purple which is used used to normalize yellow-coloured skin imperfections such as sallow complexions and yellow bruises. It can also help conceal very dark under-eye circles and dark spots on bronze skin tones. 

For 3g of product you are paying only €6.99/$5 each not bad right?  but are they even worth the value read on to find out more :) 

The packaging reminds me alot of my all time favourite concealer I use and that is the Collection Perfection Concealer.
This is a plastic tube like packaging which comes with a sponge tip applicator. 
The sponge tip applicator is the perfect size for applying to the more difficult areas of the face : )

Let me show you the shades I chose :) and tell you what I thought of them all Starting with 

Yellow is of course a concealer for covering up dark circles under the eyes :)  It is a brightener for those dark areas on your face which can still be seen under your foundation.  I suffer with dark circles and dark eyelids of course been a mum of 5 its a nightmare sometimes.  Yellow concealer is also great for evening out your skin especially when its dull.  I loke using this on my dark lids especially as it preps my eyes for my eye makeup look of the day.  Using this concealer on the lid means you will not have to use any other base for your eyeshadows :)  I think this is brilliant and if you do suffer with very dark circles this is definately an advantage to have even with your normal under eye concealer.  I have found that this is only medium coverage but it was enough to cover up my dark circles :)  Sometime my dark circles can be very very bad depending on how tired and stressed I am and I find if I add this to my normal under eye concealer its sorts me out brilliantly :)  

Next up is an everyday concealer in shade Beige 

This is a medium toned beige concealer.  Its the middle shade and I find this a great match for me at the moment I could do with Shade 3 aswell as the more the winter sets in the more pasty I am getting :)  
This concealer is again medium coverage.  This is completely different to what I am normally used to as I used my Collection Perfection Concealer for a more full coverage effect.  This concealer is perfect for over your foundation :)  its gives you a little more coverage for the areas you want for example under the eyes and for any blemishes that are not totally covered up by your foundation.  I love using the yellow concealer along with this under my eyes especially on my darker days :) 

 I found this didnt settle into my fine lines or didnt dry up on any small  blemishes I had but If you have quite a few blemishes to cover up this might not be the concealer for you.  
Last week I had a very nasty blemish which turned into two and to be honest they were the biggest blemishes I ever had in my life They were so bad they looked more like they were infected .  I found this concealer didnt just do the job I wanted in covering them up I had to use a more full coverage concealer.  This is pretty amazing to use on an everyday basis and does last throughout the day once set with a powder.  It hasnt replaced my all time favourite concealer but its certainly one I will repurchase for my not so desperate days for concealing 

Lastly we have the green concealer 

This concealer is perfect for anyone who suffers with redness on their face.  You can use this to cancel your Rosacea which I know alot of people find hard to cover up.  Rosacea is the natural redness you get on your cheeks and the only way people feel they can cover it up is by wear full coverage foundation everyday.  I have spoken to quite a few people who suffer with Rosacea and they have told me they sometimes feel embarrassed about their rosacea that they find it extremely hard to cover it up, that its hard to t wear any shades of blush because their natural redness always seems to peep through their foundation.  
Well this is what green concealers were made for :)   Simple apply a small amount of this concealer to the areas you suffer redness before your foundation and you will automatically notice a difference.  Then you apply your foundation (I recommend stippling your foundation on when using this concealer for full effect) as usual and your redness with not peep through :) :) I find this works brilliantly its perfect for covering up any redness from spots too :)  The redness stays away the whole day long leaving you free to use whatever shade of blush you desire :) 

If find this very light weight and buildable.  It so easy to use and very easy to blend 

Over all I think these concealers are well worth having in your collection.  If you are one who suffers with extreme acne and acne scarring I recommend a more full coverage concealer than this but anyone else who is simply looking for a concealer to brighten dark areas and cover up only slight blemishes this is for you.  As for the corrective concealers....... Well I use them on a regular basis I absolutely adore the yellow one and use that quite frequently either on its own or on my worst dark days i use with my full coverage concealer for that extra brightness :)   The green corrective concealer I rarely use on myself but have used it more on people I apply makeup to and they have confirmed their redness stayed away all day long :)  
Here is a photo of me before and after applying a mixture of the yellow and my usual concealer under my eyes and also used Beige concealer to cover up a few blemishes i have been battling with :) 

Have you ever tried the NYX HD Concealer ?
What is your thoughts on them 
Until next time 
Lots of Love Luck and Laughter 

I love love love hearing from you all :) I make it my duty to read each and every one of you comments and every time i get a comment from you it highlights my day thanks so so much to you all xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Coastal Scents Revealed Palette Review

Hello My beauties I hope you are all well 
Today I come to you with a review on the Coastal Scents Revealed Palette.  I am sure if you are a makeup junkie like myself you have heard about this palette as its a well known palette by alot of bloggers and makeup gurus on youtube :)  That is in fact where I have seen it alot.  I have heard some great reviews about this and just had to get it to try it out for myself.  

This palette comes in 2 versions, there is also a palette by Coastal Scents called Revealed 2 in which I couldnt help but get also and will review in a future post :) 
These palettes cost at the moment $19.99 for 20 eyeshadows.  Thats pretty impressive so far right?! 

The palette itself comes in a handy little box which looks exactly like the palette itself only it has a picture of the palette in the back of the box.  The palette itself is really slim and lightweight which is always handy for travelling or even handier for storing in your drawer.  The lid of the palette is held closed by a magnet I love that :) 

The most beautiful sight is about to happen when I open this stunning palette :) :) 

Doesnt it look stunning :) :)
As I mentioned before there is a total of 20 eyeshadows in this palette and as you can see they are all neutral shades :) :) 
There is a nice mixture of mattes and shimmers in there which is perfect for day time and night time looks :)  
There is only 4 matte shades but to be honest I am happy with the shade choices for the mattes and you will soon see why :) 

Starting with the top row :) 
Shade 1:  Is a pale matte yellow toned beige shade.  This is quite pigmented and and incredibly soft a perfect shade for blending or to use as a highlight :) 
Shade 2:  This is another perfect highlight shade only this has a shimmery finish.  The shade is veering towards a pale pinky champagne with tiny silver shimmer.  Again pigmented and a little goes a long way :) 
Shade 3:  This is one of my favourite shades in the palette.  A stunning rosey pinky shade with silver shimmer.  Oh my goodness this is super pigmented and really looks stunning all over the lid :)  I find this shade really brings the green out of my hazel eyes :) 
Shade 4:  This is another matte shade the perfect transition colour.  A light tan shade very pigmented and very soft.  
Shade 5:  Another Matte shade for us to play with.   This is a medium toned taupe shade.  This shade has a tint of purple in it.  I love to use this as a transition shade or even lightly in the crease for daytime looks :)  
Shade 6:  Another favourite of mine :) :)  A medium Bronzy brown with gold shimmer.  This shade is very pigmented and very easy to apply.  
Shade 7:  This is a medium matte brown the perfect crease/ blending/ brow shade.  This is very pigmented and again very soft 
Shade 8:  Another beautiful shade.  A shimmery gold and very pigmented :) 
Shade 9:  A Deep taupey brown with golden shimmer this is super pigmented and very soft and stunning shade to mix with shade 8 :) 
Shade 10:  This is a shimmery silver with a tint of taupe in there.  Its not your ordinary silver.  This again is very pigmented and soft :) 

Next up is row 2 :)  This row is more on the deeper and more pigmented side :) 
Shade 11:  A Deep Copper Brown wow is this shade full of pigmentation :)  A little goes a long way with the beauty I love it :) 
Shade 12:  This is a deep brown shade with the slightest shimmery finish.  This is more of a satin finish than shimmery.  If you look very closely you will see the slightest gold shimmer its beautiful 
Shade 13:  A deep taupey grey shade.  This too has the slightest amount of shimmer which gives a satin finish :)  Very pigmented 
Shade 14;  This shade is somewhat like Shade 12 only a shade darker the perfect crease and outer V shade for creating a daytime smokey eye look hugely pigmented 
Shade 15:  I am totally in love with this shade :)  A medium rose gold with a copper undertone to it :) again with the tiniest amount of golden shimmer.  Very pigmented and super soft so so easy to work with.  I have applied this shade on the lid with a damp brush and wow AMAZING!!!!! 
Shade 16:  This is a little like Shade 13 only more on the brown side :) :) Again very pigmented 
Shade 17:  is like shade 15 only more on the copper side :)  There is plenty of gold in this shade and super super pigmented.  When applied with a damp brush it gives a more foiled and pigmented finish.  This shade would be perfect for a christmas look :) :) 
Shade 18:  A Deep dark brown with a slight golden shimmer again another satin finish eye-shadow and again very pigmented :) 
Shade 19:  A Deep Silver perfect for those night time smoky eyed looks.  Very pigmented and super soft to work with 
Shade: 20:  A Deep matte black :) I love using this on the outer V I also use this as eye-liner during the day by simply dampening my eye-liner brush.  Its not the deepest black I have come across but its very very close.  Its also very easy to blend which is hard to find as matte eyeshadow especially dark shade can be hard to blend in a more affordable palettes :)  Its also very buildable :) 

I just have to highlight something before I continue.  I am absolutely amazed with how creamy these eyeshadows feel,  They almost remind me of how my Lorac Pro eyeshadows feel to touch and how they apply to the eyes :)  That says alot because of the price difference between the two.  
I also have to admit there is less fall out with this palette compared to my Lorac Pro Palette.  Thats not saying that you will not experience some fall out as I have noticed especially with the more darker shade you will experience some fall out.  The black especially !!! So I would advise you if you are creating the dark smokey eye maybe do your eye makeup before you apply your foundation :) 
With a primer (which I use 98% of the time) these shadows will last all day and even all night long.  I have worn these shadows with an eyeshadow base for the longest of 12 hours and I can safely say my eyeshadow looked exactly the same as when I first applied them that day :) 
I highly recommend this eyeshadow palette especially at the price it is :)  You could literally get away with only owning this palette and been able to create 10 + different looks :) 
Here is a daytime smokey eye look I created using the Shade 1 on the brow bone, A mixture of Shade 3 & Shade 6 on the lid, shade 11 on the outter corner blending inwards, Shade 4 for blending, Shade 7 in the crease and shade 14 in the outer V.   I also used Shade 20 as eye-liner :)  

As you can tell I adore this palette.  I highly recommend it to you all.  I know alot of you might ask me this question in the comments so I am going to cover it now and that is about shipping cost as Coastal Scents is an American Site and I can safely say on my last order which included this palette along with 2 other palettes and 4 makeup brushes the total shipping cost was only $20 and there was no custom charges :) 
I really hope you enjoyed this review :) 
Until Next time 
Lots of Love Luck and Laughter 

I love love love hearing from you all :) I make it my duty to read each and every one of you comments and every time i get a comment from you it highlights my day thanks so so much to you all xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Physicians Formulas Shimmer Strips Kohl Kajal Eyeliner Trio for Blue Eyes

Hey Beauties I hope you are all well :) :) 
As you all know by now Ireland has been brilliant lately by bringing in some much needed new brands into our country.  Ones we have been dying to get our hands on :) 
First it was NYX Cosmetics then it was Wet N Wild and now Physicians Formula :)  Eeeeek Exciting I know I know :)
I have tried some Physicians Formula products before as you know and have to say really liked what I tried.
So I was super excited to the the Shimmer Strips Kohl Kajal Eyeliners.

Described as :   Highly pigmented inner rim eyeliner trio delivers rich color and instant drama.  Versatile eyeliner for eye enhancing definition and inner eye rim intensity.  Super- smooth gliding texture makes defining eyes effortless.  Apply eyeliner at the base of upper lashes and on inside of lower eye rim for ultra-dramatic definition. Layer shades together for endless looks.
Each eyeliner trio costs €16.90 which works out at €5.60 each 
Not bad if they are a good deal eh?  Each eyeliner has 2.7g of product 

I do remember these eyeliners when they first came out and they came in a better packaging.  Whereas they come in a less exciting packaging but hey its not all about the packaging right ?! 

The eyeliner themselves are quite cute and lightweight.  They are each colour coded so its easier to find what shade you are looking for.  What I was a little disappointed with was the eyeliner itself.  What you see in the cap is what you get as in product wise.  There is no twisty bottom nothing this is it.  But of course we cant judge on what we see as I thought to myself maybe you need very little to use :) 

Another thing is sharpening the product is quite difficult as you will be wasting alot of it to form a pointy edge so basically if you do not sharpen you will have to use this either as an eyeshadow cream once the pointy edge is worn down or use a separate eyeliner brush to use the liner.  

So let me show you the shade close up :)  Remember these eyeliners are especially for blue eye but anyone with any shade of eyes can use these.  I in fact used these on someone last week who had brown eyes :) 

This was the more exciting shade of the pack for me.  This shade is a deep royal blue with silver shimmers.  Very creamy and pigmented.  What I did find with this shade was that if used on oily lids and as an eyeshadow base it can crease.  I adore the shade.  Its a great eyeshadow base for sure and will not crease once used sparingly and set with a powder.  

Next up is your typical black.  This black contains tiny shimmers of silver.  I have to admit you need to build this shade up to get an intense black but this is surely a handy number when creating a smokey eye.  I have also tried this on my waterline and can report that it will move if you have sensitive eyes unless you set it with a powder eyeshadow :) 

and lastly is 

This is a deep chocolate brown with shimmer.  This again is very pigmented very creamy and a little goes a long way.  

Over all I am 50/50 about this there is a mixture of pros and cons so to shorten it all :) 

They are affordable 
you get 3 shades to choose from 
They are very creamy 
Can be used as liner and eyeshadow base 
They are long lasting once set with powder 
They are buildable 

What you see is what you get in the amount of product 
If you lean too hard on the nib you will break the entire liner off 
They can crease if used on their own
They are not great on the waterline unless you set it with powder 

Over all they are worth trying but its depending on what you want to use them for.  I love using these as an eyeshadow base more than and eyeliner.  They are great from creating a smokey eye look.  As for lasting power unless you set these you are going to find they will fade quite quickly.  Paying the price for all 3 is not bad but to be honest I would much rather buy these seperately so I can shoose my own shades.  In each trio there is already a black so if you wanted to buy all trios you are going to end up with alot of black eyeliners.  
Have you tried these yet ?
Whats your thoughts on them :) 
Here is a picture of the Lovely Sarah aka Adoreabubbles who asked me to do her makeup last week and I could help but use the blue eyeliner from Physicians Formula to see what it was like on her.  I of course set it with an eyeshadow the same shade and it looked fantastic on her (please note I forgot to bring my camera with me and used my photo to take photos so it looks a little orangey as it was also night time ) 

I hope you found this review helpful.  
Until Next Time 
Lots of Love Luck and Laughter 

For everyone in Ireland who is wondering where to buy Physicians Formula here is a list of some places its now available in :) :) 

I love love love hearing from you all :) I make it my duty to read each and every one of you comments and every time i get a comment from you it highlights my day thanks so so much to you all xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel Review

Hello beauties :) 
I am sure alot of you there have been itching to change your skincare routine since those cold wet day came creeping in on you.  I know I have and to be honest I have also noticed a huge change in the way my skin looks and feels :(  Sad to say my skin looks dull pasty and what more I have been prone to breakout alot lastly which I have never really experienced before.  Giving that I also noticed my poor pre-teen daughter who is 12 that she is not only suffering alot with breakouts but they are red and sore looking too. 

So Today I come to you with a brand new product that both me and my daughter has been trying out for the past couple of weeks.  I really wanted to test out this product properly so I can give you an indept review.  Not only that but I have asked my daughter for her take on this too as she has acne prone skin and sensitive skin 

Before I get down to the review let me tell you a little about the company Oskia which I have to say I found very very interesting.  Georgie Cleeve the founder of Oskia.  She had an skiing accident years ago that damaged a Cartilage in her knee and she was one of the first to witness what MSM (which is a chemical found in plants, animals, and humans or also known as as the "Beauty Mineral)  can do for her as it She experienced a phenomenal response to the MSM and her cartilage repaired more than any surgeon had thought possible. But what had been less expected was a major improvement in the symptoms of her rosacea and acne together with striking benefits to her complexion and the condition of her hair and nails.
 The concept based on one exceptional mineral soon evolved into a nutritional approach harnessing all the essential nutrients - minerals, vitamins, proteins, essential fatty acids - that are critical to skin health and performance.
OSKIA’s formulations are designed by Georgie and a team of internationally - recognised nutritionists, doctors, dermatologists and skincare experts.
For more fascinating information on what MSM can actually do for us click here you will be amazed 

What I like about this company is that they are honest.  Even though they try to use at least 98% of natural ingredients they do state that they only use products that work for people.  Sometimes that might not all be natural but they do their best to have at lease the majority of natural ingredients.  They state they will only use ingredients that are scientifically proven to work and not for their natural and organic status.  
Ok I think That is enough information :) :) 
Now for the product itself 

First of let me cover who this Cleansing gel is suitable for :) 
  • Anyone who has Dull skin 
  • Dry, oily and Combination Skin  
  • Anyone who suffers with Pigmentation 
  • Anyone with Acne Scars 
  • Blemished skin 
It does of course recommend that if you suffer with oily skin that you use this product with a muslin cloth for better use and benefits :) :) 

What are the benefits of this product on your face?  
Well Oskia states :  The original gel-oil cleanser.
  • Deeply cleanses pores.
  • Removes makeup and daily grime.
  • Thoroughly removes dull and dead skin cells without irritation for a balanced complexion.
  • Improves the appearance of sun damaged, dry and mature skin to reveal soft, supple texture.
  • Fortifies and protects the skin against free radical & environmental damage.
  • Improves elasticity & firmness.
  • Enhances the lipid barrier to soften and nourish.

The packaging is fairly simple and plain which is brilliant as I like that in products that have good promises it means that they have concentrated more on the product rather than the packaging. 

What impressed me about this is the pump.  Its super thick and sturdy and pumps out just enough product to do the entire face.  

This is described as a cleansing gel which is true.  The rosey coloured gel is quite thick when first squirted from the bottle.  From the moment you squirt the gel out you can smell the Rose & Chamomile which is not strong but smells absolutely beautiful.  As mentioned above the consistency of the gel at first is thick but as you spread the gel around your face and neck it melts to a balm like substance.  As you continue to massage this into your skin the gel feel more like a light oily substances.  The directions say to apply this on dry skin, then wet your finger tips and continue to massage.  That exactly what I do and I notice the gel turn to a milky consistency.   The scent gets a little stronger and smells divine :) :) 
I do this for about a few minutes and then rinse with warm water I instantly feel my skin is clean soft and fresh.  Then I take a look at the water in the sink and I instantly see that it has taken whatever is left on my face (after taking off my makeup) right off leaving me squeaky clean.  I feel my skin is not stripped completely from its natural oils or feels extremely dehydrated like some cleansers do which is a plus from me.  

So have I noticed a difference in the last couple of weeks in my skin??
Yes I surely have my skin does feel very smooth and soft and feels spotless every time I use this.  I am sure some of you who follow me on face book remember I was complaining of having break outs quite a bit in the past few weeks?  Well I can safely say that my break outs have cleared out alot since using this :) 
For me this has been nothing but a pleasure to use but lets see what my daughter thinks shall we :) :) 

This is Becky's statement word for word:  
"Using This cleansing gel is so so easy for me.  I literally apply it to my dry skin massage it in making sure to massage it onto my forehead which is where I break out the most.  My forehead is covered in acne at the moment and its extremely embarrassing especially when the spots are very red and sore.  I wet my hand and continue to massage the cleanser into my skin.  What I do notice with this cleanser is that it does not sting my face which some cleansers or face washes do to my face especially when I have a big breakout.  I also find when I rinse this off and pat my skin dry that my spots are not irritated.  I feel my skin is soft and very clean.  I love the smell of this cleanser alot.  Sometimes I can be lazy when washing my face but since using this cleanser I have  been washing my face every morning and every night for they past 2 weeks without my mam telling me.  I really like it."  

Becky also has said to me that she noticed her spots are lessening in the two weeks she has been using the cleanser and I have to admit I have noticed an improvement too :) 

So there you have it thumbs up from the both of us :) I really hope you found this review informative.
Have you tried this cleanser yet?
This cleanser is available to buy from Space.NK , Oskia Website  , Beauty Bay and Cult Beauty Prices do vary between £24-£28/€30-€34 for 100 mls of product :)  which is something people do find hard to part with unless the product is actually good including myself but I can safely say its well worth the price if you want to treat yourself to a good effective cleanser that you are going to visibly see make a difference.  

Until Next time 
Lots of Love Luck and Laughter
