This awesome elephant print dress is 100% my style, I love the amber on black, cut-out sleeves and the intricate detailing at the hem of the dress. Plus it makes me very nostalgic, reminding me of the 3 months I spend traveling around Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam in my early 20's! In Thailand I visited an Elephant Sanctuary where they cared for rescued elephants and of course it's the only time in my life where I saw an Elephant in the flesh. I got to feed one and have a sit on one while it sauntered about. It was magical!!

|Despite the misleading colours above, both formulations I tested are in the shade #150 Buff.|
Recently I read a post by fellow Irish blogger and Youtuber Dani aka 'The Glamour Nazi', where she compared the 2 formulas of the Revlon ColorStay Foundation; Combination/Oily & Dry/Normal.
Having owned the Combo/Oily formula myself for a few years now, (currently on bottle #2 of the colour Buff 150), I found her results intriguing enough that I was urged to test the differences out for myself!
It's coming up to the holidays, which means time for us to start enjoying all the rich tasty seasonal foods now available in the supermarkets, enjoy our Christmas parties and the free drinks that comes along with them, not to mention the late nights and sore heads that always inevitably follow.

I recently picked up some Bobbi Brown eye products as I have only been trying a couple of their concealers over the past while and hadn't actually tried anything else in years!
I used to own their long-wear cream eyeshadow in 'Bone' long before I ever owned a paint pot or color tattoo and loved it! So with that nostalgia hanging over me, I was inspired to buy 2 of their cream shadows and a single powder shadow.

Party season is officially here now that we have packed away out witches hats & brooms.... and my own work Christmas Party is in only 2 weeks time!!
Romwe.com are holding a sale on a load of their items (Over 1000 of them!) as well as some of their new stock items in time for all these parties.
I have been inundated with requests to review the Maybelline 'Fit Me' Anti-Shine Stick Foundation and so I went out & bought it to do just that!
It costs either €10.99 or €11.99 or so here in Ireland (Sorry, can't find my receipt for exact pricing!) And I believe we have only 6 of the 12 shades available. I went for #120 which is the second from lightest shade and more on the neutral end of things, perhaps with just a tad of warmth thrown in.
I think the odd numbers are warmer (pink based) and the even numbered shades are cooler or neutral.... but I also could be wrong here :P
It's an unique product because of it's anti-shine core that contains silicones and light-weight powders to absorb shine and inhibit oil production on the face ....
|The foundation stick surrounds an anti-shine centre, the white dot in the middle!!|

Ahoy hoy ^_^
Recently, Cora from the super popular and fab VintageOrTacky Youtube channel contacted me about collaborating on a makeup & outfit video inspired by a necklace that both of us came to own! I bought mine from River Island here in Ireland and Cora got her's online.
(Turns out Cora bought her's after she saw mine posted on my instagram a few months ago, ha ha)

My gruaig* has been getting a lot of TLC recently in the hopes of growing it to mermaid lengths while trying to keep it in the healthiest condition possible (and whilst still keeping on-top of my dye job mind!)
My current haircare wonder team includes these guys from Pantene, all designed to protect and beautify my hair without weighing it down, which can be a major hassle for my super fine hair.
*Gruaig is the Irish word for hair for those who may not know! :)

Now that Halloween is over and done with, it's time to get back to reality and to my more regular makeup related posts. I'm gonna kick things off with the latest addition to Max Factor's foundation range, the new Whipped Creme Foundation.
I am already a fan of a few of the brand's other foundation offerings like the Miracle Touch Liquid Illusion Foundation, the Ageless Elixir 2-in-1 Foundation and their 3-in-1 Foundation.
