5out of 5

Pros: Lathers Well, Cleans Effectively

Best Uses: Facial Soap

Describe Yourself: Budget Buyer

I love this soap, I use it every other day or so on my skin and it doesn't dry it out! I have really combination skin and everything affects it badly so yay for this soap. I get it sent all the way to Ireland.

It has a slight Tea tree smell to it but it isn't over powering.

Sleek iDivine Palette in Storm

Hey guys so if you follow me on twitter you'll have heard me harp on about how I ordered this.

I am a bit late to jump on the Sleek train but I am glad that I have. 

These palettes are great especially for the price.

You can get them on the Sleek Website for €8.50 and €9.00 shipping, the shipping is a bit high but being honest it still works out to be great value. 

There are 12 very pigmented shadows all at 1.1gms each or 0.03oz

They have a few other palettes to which would be worth checking out too.

I went with Storm as I am more into neutrals at the moment.

On to the pictures there are many.

These are some comparisons to Urban Decay shadows I have.
The Urban Decay shadows are on the left

UD Perversion vs Sleek Black Colour
UD Last Call vs Sleek Raspberry Colour
UD Bordello vs Sleek Pale Pink Colour
UD Mawi Wowie vs Sleek Pale Gold Colour
UD Loaded vs Sleek Forest Green Colour

Here is a quick look I created using this palette.

What are your thoughts on Sleek would you pick up a palette?

Clinique Long Lasting Lipstick

My friend let me try this and let me tell you it is awesome.

Such a pretty colour.

Really creamy and no shimmer.

I prefer cream lipsticks to shimmer or glitter ones.

This colour is perfect for my skin and liptone.

My lips are quite pigmented on their own.

Have you tried any Clinique lip products?

Poser Cat

I'm cute as a button, Look how fluffy I be.

17 trios Swatches and such

I got these trios for my boyfriend's sister for Christmas. 

I was up in her house the other day and I caught a glimpse of them.

The quality is not bad colour pigmentation is ok.

Packaging is pretty sleek. Small and handy to bring out if you needed to do touch ups.

She used the black/silver/white one a lot at a fashion show she was doing. 

I would definately recommend a good primer though.

What are you thoughts on 17 products?

ELF Essentials Lipsticks

So I got these awhile back swatched them and took pictures, then lost my camera.

I only recently found them again. so here they are.

The packaging is basic. But  for €1.70/£1.50/$1 what do you really expect.

The colour pigmentation is pretty impressive.

They were a little dark for me so I don't wear theme very often.

The Colours are Voodoo (red) and Gypsy (Fuschia pink)

They have ok lasting power, but I hadn't expected it to last all day lol.

Here is the picture anyways.

Have you tried these?

Emergency - Quickest FOTD stat.

Hey guys, So I was on my way to work today when it occurred to me I had on no make up, 
So I parked outside of work and had a rummage in my bag.

This is the look I created with what I found in there, I had no brushes so it was all applied using my fingers.
It took approx 4 minutes.

As you'll see from the picture, I am on the mend, My eyes don't look as bad as they did in the Etsy review.
My hayfever turned into full on flu. With an ear infection to boot.

Here is the picture,

List of products used.

Elf Essential Brightening Eye Quad in Brownstone
Elf Essentials Brightening Eye Quad in Day to Night
Gosh Velvet Liner in Black Ink
Mac Zoom Lash in Black
Eyeko Fat Balm in Raspberry

I think it turned out pretty good, I only wish I had had an angled liner brush so I could have filled in my brows.

What are you emergency Make Up products?

New Hair Again

So funny story, As I needed to dye my hair again, I got a sort of redy brown dye similar to the previous dye colour.

Put the Colour in and got chatting to my mom totally forgeting the colour was well still dying my hair. 

After like an hour when I realised the colour was still in my hair.

I proceeded to was out the colour and trying to not destroy the bathroom in Blackberry coloured spots.

Basically long story short my hair came out almost Black.

I actually kind of liked it but I was very glad it was a semi permenant dye because it has been washed a few times now and is quite a bit lighter.

Here is a picture of the new colour and the previous one.

Left newest colour, Right previous one.
Also the right one has panels of blonde that I didn't bother doing on the newer one purely out of laziness.

What is your experience with home dyes?

Fortune Cookie Haul

Hey guys, So ever since I got the sample pack of Fortune cookie soaps, I have been obsessed.

I placed another order there about 2 weeks ago, The package got to me from the States to Ireland in like 5 days, Which is awesome.

Everything is packaged so nicely.

Here is what I got:

All the stuff in the box.

Full size Clearly Complection Soap $7.50 for a 6oz Bar
You can see from the picture is quite a big bar.
I use this at least every other day on my face and it works very well for me.

As you can see these are quite big too.
Smells of Lime Margaritas just like is says, I love this cookie.

Smells heavily of Lemon, it is amazing.

Smells of Cucumber, very fresh

I was also sent a free sample of Cupcake Shampoo Bar to try 
Full Size $8 for 3oz Bar
This cleaned my hair super well and left it feeling conditioned without using conditioner.

Can't wait to try there conditioner bars coming soon I hope.

I also got a sample of In the Loop Sugar Scrub.
This smells amazing, I can't tell you what it reminds me of but as soon as I place it I'll let you know.
$11.75 for full size jar 5.5oz

The Shipping for my order was like $16 to Ireland which is pretty good.

I have placed another order with them, I got it in before my spending ban yay. 

I got that order delivered to my mom in the states as she is coming home in like two weeks.

Have you tried Fortune Cookie Soaps

Spending Ban Initiated.

Hey guys, So in the last few days I have made my credit card cry on many occasions, So I have decided I have a spending ban in place. 

I must use things I already have.

I have a few orders that I am waiting on so there will be reviews on them when they come but no more buying anything beauty related until the first of August or until I have used up 15 Products.

The only exceptions are if it is a necessity, eg Cotton pads or buds, other things I run out of that I absolutely have none of, not even a variant.

Upcoming reviews:
NYX cosmetics haul
2 Fortune Cookie Soaps hauls
Eos products
Sleek Chaos Palette
More Etsy Make up Companies 3 to be exact.
Harajuku Perfumes.
Opi Pirates of the Caribean Polishes (Thanks to Mom and Mike) They picked them up in the States for me.

So know buying Beauty products until I can show you guys 15 empties or it is the 1st of August.

I will note that on the instance that one of my frequented sites has a ridiculous sale there maybe and exception but only if it is an awesome sale. However I will try to stick as close to the rules as I can.

So let operation spending ban commence.

Will you guys partake?

Operation Etsy Company Review Two: The Chequered Lily Apothecary

This is number two in my reviews of Etsy make up brands.

I got a some samples from The Chequered Lily.

I got 10 Samples pack  for $4 plus $1 shipping to Ireland. You can choose the ten you would like and she also includes 2 of her choosing to sample. That's 12 samples shipped for $5 which is awesome.

The samples come in little baggies and have enough product for 2-3 applications depending on how you apply your shadows.

These are great quality, they go on smooth.
Full a full size shadow with the company you get 1gram of product in a sifter jar for $8.25 shipped to Ireland.

That is pretty good.

On to the pictures......

From Left to Right - Candy Floss, Hyacinth, Love like Winter, Jack Frost

From Right to Left - Charlotte, Sea of Cortez, Trolled, Oakmoss.

From Left to Right - Ice Storm, Naive, Neverwhere, November.

Here are just two quick looks I did, Please excuse my face, I'm in hayfever hell.

This one uses, Love like winter, Naive, Candy Floss and Hyacinth

This one uses Ice Storm, Neverwhere, Charlotte, Oakmoss and Jack Frost

I love these colours, I definitenly recommend using a good primer under these, I didn't just because well in sick and I couldn't find it. 

Thanks for stopping by.

Operation Etsy Company Review One: Scaredy Cat

Hey guys, 

After I bought my Spoon Ring off Etsy, I was looking around trying to decide what else to get off them.

I came across some companies that make makeup. I was so excited, There are so many so I started with ones that do sample packs. Just before I start I would like to say that I bought these with my own money. I am in no way affiliated with these companies, I simply came across them.

With that said lets get started. 

Most of the sample set come in little baggies with a 1/4tsp of product which is more than enough to test out the colours.

This company however has these awesomely cute little vials, I about died when I saw them. It is $5 for 5 sample vials and for shipping here to Ireland it was only $5.  You also get to choose which colours you want. You can these from Scaredy Cat Cosmetics on Etsy.

They are packed very well.

And last but not least you get a good amount product for a sample. 

On to the Pictures.......

How cute are these vials?
For Left to Right-Snow Bird, Draconia, Hera, Dee's Nuts and Sakura.

Snow Bird




Dee's Nuts

I absolutely love Sakura, It is such a beautiful colour.

Scaredy Cat Cosmetics is on vacation until the 20th of June, But add her to your favourites on Etsy you won't be disappointed.

Here is a quick look I did using Snow Bird, Draconia and Sakura.

Please excuse the state of me in the picture i'm suffering really bad from Hayfever.

I recommend a good primer for these as it will really make the colour stand out, I didn't use one as well I couldn't find it. You can see from the picture though, they are pretty pigmented without it.
