MAC Haul

Hi lovelies I'm currently sitting outside writing this post in the SUN (where did it come from) but it's sure welcome back anytime. Anyway I was feeling a bit spontaneous during the week and decided I wanted to order a few MAC items, I already had a long wish list of items from Mac I wanted but I had to whittle it down to a few (not as easy as you think lol). I ordered the items from  (standard delivery) on Monday lunchtime and received it on Wednesday, I was so impressed with the delivery that I had to share it :)

I eventually got my list down to three items, the first item being Mac Mineralize Skinfinish in Stereo Rose. I've seen this on countless blogs and after looking up many swatches I knew this would be perfect blush and I love it. I would absolutely recommend it if you are thinking of buying it. It is such a gorgeous coral shade with a hint of shimmer. The second item was Matte Blush in Harmony, I've been looking for a good contour product for my pale skin  so I went with this and it definitely is one of the best for pale skin, I actually look like I have cheekbones ha. Last I decided I wanted to buy my first eyeshadow quad from Mac after seeing pearls and poodles latest post on her Mac Haul so I picked out the Mineralize Eyeshadow Quad in Great Beyond, which I think is the nicest looking  eyeshadow quad. It has four purple/brown shades, I was a bit put off by the shades at first because they are not ones I would normally use but I have grown to love it and all the shades work perfect together. I already have the Golden  Hours quad next on my list!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

New Look Petite // Mini Clothing Haul

Hi Lovelies, as i was browsing New Look in Jervis shopping centre in dublin (which is the largest New Look in the world btw, you should see the shoe section) i came across the petite section, i already knew New Look had a petite section but i thought it was restricted to online only.  

 It wasn't a huge section, basically a rail but it had a lot of really nice things. I only picked up a few things (luckily for my bank balance, I could of bought everything!). I have to say i am delighted New Look stock a petite range as there isn't enough shops that specialise on petite ranges, and look forward to seeing the range expand :)

Here is a few items i picked up:

. Navy bird print peplum top- Link

Pink textured zip back boxy top -Link

Lace back playsuit-Link this has to be my favourite item out of all of them. I love this playsuit so much, its very similar to topshops lace back playsuit but slightly different material.

• floral print top (cant find link online)

•daisy print peplum top-Link

 new look petite is also available online and as

Mister Mascara Eyelash Curler

Mister mascara eyelash curler €8.00 not one of the most exciting reviews but this is one of my most used and favorite tool. I came across this curler while looking for a replacement for my other penneys (primark) curler. It wasn't my best idea using the penneys one as it was extremely harsh to my lashes and had no padding eek!

Mister mascara curler comes with 6 Replacement pads (not that you even need to keep changing them, i didn't change them for months) but its great to have them. I love this curler as it curls the lash
easily and gently. Its very sturdy, i have it about year and half now and its been chucked from bag to
bag constantly. It is also very easy to clean.

If you are looking for a new inexpensive eyelash curler for a great price id highly recommend this.

What is your favorite eyelash curler?

Estee Lauder Double Wear BB Glow Review

Hi lovlies,
Im back with an exciting new release from Estee Lauders double wear range, their new double wear bb glow. I am a big fan of EL double wear range, i own almost every item from the range so it was no surprise that i tracked it down at my nearest EL counter and had to have this when i first heard of the release.

Estée Lauder BB glow is slightly different to the other double wear foundations as it is not as thick in texture and not as cakey feeling but it definitely does not lack in coverage. I have worn this for the last few days and i absolutely love it much more than the original double wear. It does not feel like i am wearing foundation just a very nice moisturiser. It gives me a gorgeous glow as it says on the package and lasts on my face all day in work. The lovely lady at the EL counter told me to mix this with my double wear foundation if i needed extra coverage. It will definitely be my go to foundation for summer (if we ever get it here).


I have the shade intensity 1.0 which is the ideal shade for my pale skin. It comes in 8 Shades and is available on Estee Lauder counters nationwide and online priced at €38. If you love double wear foundation or looking for a great BB foundation i would 100% recommend this.

Available online Here.
