I was recently sent a really cool MAC Mascara Roll containing 6 of MAC's current mascaras. Along with the MAC Mascara's I already have in my kit, I have all of them with several multiples (Well there's only 1 I don't have). So in this video I review, show and swatch all of the mascaras so you can see how they look on and what each different one does!
And all the swatches...
And then this tip is for those days when your mascara looks a bit crap or clumpy (especially when you're using an old tube or rushing in the morning) and you wish you could remove it without ruining the rest of your eye makeup!
Nivea Q10Plus Firming 'In-Shower Body Moisturiser' is an innovative new type of moisturiser that you apply in the shower under running water after you've washed yourself, and then you rinse off before getting out of the shower! Basically think of it as conditioner for the skin, so the same as hair conditioner which you apply after shampoo but wash off.
What adds to the uniqueness of this moisturiser however is that it also firms & soothes the skin.
Coenzyme Q10 occurs naturally in our skin, protecting it from oxidation or free radical damage, but like everything else, lessens with age leading to sagging etc. This moisturiser contains Q10 beads that melt into the skin when massaged in under the hot shower water, and you will immediately feel a slight tightening of the skin along with a cooling sensation.
This'll be great for people (like me) who usually just couldn't be bothered with applying any moisturiser or lotion after their shower or for people who are in a rush and would like to speed up their 'get-ready' time, as you won't have to wait around for the moisturiser to dry in before dressing!
There is also a body lotion, body oil, rich body lotion and cellulite cream available in the Q10 Firming range.
The Firming Q10 Plus In-Shower Moisturiser is available now for the RRP of €7.38 for 250ml nationwide!
For easter just gone, instead of doing a makeup tutorial inspired by Easter colours etc, this year I decided to do a Cruelty Free makeup tutorial featuring products by NYX, ELF, Urban Decay, Wet n Wild, Zoeva, Barry M and SmashBox! Some of the products are Vegan also, and I let ye know throughout the video which products are vegan and what's not!
As I mentioned in the video, with the bit of research I did, these companies all claim to be cruelty free. Some do indeed belong to bigger 'umbrella' companies like Estee Lauder or L'Oréal who may test on animals, so the whole claim can be a tad unsteady sometimes. Also, a company can still claim to be cruelty free if their end products are not animal tested by THEMSELVES... This isn't to say that the ingredients or source materials weren't tested on animals somewhere down the line OR that a separate outside company did not test the products. Again, it's hard to tell if a company is indeed truly cruelty free. Anyhow, I digress...
I strongly suggest you all do a little research yourselves if it bothers you and make your own decision on who to support as 'cruelty free' and who to skip. Luckily, animal testing is completely illegal here in the EU on cosmetics and this includes imported cosmetics etc. Policies vary worldwide though so check about your own region online!
Hey Guys, this video is part of the biggest Irish Beauty Collaboration to date featuring 8 Irish YouTuber's in total, all of whom are listed below along with what they'll be covering in their videos and the links....
Skin (General Foundation, Concealer, Contour etc) for Dry Skin... Siobhan
I seem to have fallen behind quite a bit in regards to updating my blog and adding my Youtube videos etc due to unavoidable and unexpected 'real life' complications, so here's a round-up of of my Youtube videos from the past 2 weeks or so...
First up is a video showcasing some new Blank Canvas Cosmetics brushes that I was using in my recent Makeup MasterClass....
I'm a bit batty for these new hand & nail balms by Roger & Gallet, which is something I never thought I'd be saying... I mean, they're hand creams. Not the most exciting products in the world BUT these both smell and feel extremely luxurious on the skin!
This has been going around the various beauty communities of the web lately along with a lot of mis-information, so I gave it a go myself to show how lipstick can actually be used as a colour correcting concealer!!
I started holding Makeup Classes along with my colleague and good friend Hayley Coleman last November, and on Sunday just past, we held our 3rd class to date in the very posh G-Hotel, Galway and we were both delighted with how it went, despite my running at about 30% with a bad migraine. Thankfully Hayley (the legend!) really saved the day, taking the reigns and helping me survive afternoon. Despite my health issues though, I thoroughly enjoyed meeting everyone!!!
I recently parted ways with MAC after more than 5 years working for them, to go solo! I just found that working for MAC as a retail artist as well as doing Youtube and my free-lance work was too much for me and one of them had to go! After much thought, I decided to leave MAC.
I recently took a notion to de-pot all of my Zoeva Eyeshadows & organise my Z-Palettes & MAC palettes!
The Zoeva palettes are pretty much the easiest ones to de-pot since they are made of cardboard and no heat is needed to melt anything!! STEP 1.
