Aussie 'Miracle Recharge' Conditioning Sprays.

Aussie Conditioning Sprays C/o .
Time for a hair care post and this one is all about the new(ish) Aussie Conditioning Sprays...
I have in the past steered away from leave-in conditioners as the older formulas used to weigh my fine hair down, making it look lank rather than silky and sleek. In the past few years though the new formulas coming out are much lighter and some are even volumising and much more 'fine hair' friendly.
The 'Miracle Recharge' Conditioning Sprays by cult hair-care brand Aussie are fab for these exact reasons.

Sleek Makeup 'Garden of Eden' EyeShadow Palette Show & Tell.


Hey Guys!
Sleek Makeup's first new offering of 2014 is this gorgeous eyeshadow palette inspired by Nature with earthy tones & 'Jungle' shades and names like 'Python' & 'Evergreen'. It joins the rest of the i-Divine palettes, with the same great quality and textures, buy this guy costs only £7.99 compared to the rest of the palettes which are £9.99 each. (I've no idea why this one is less expensive!)
Meet 'Garden of Eden'!!!

La Roche-Posay 'Cicaplast Mains'

'Cicaplast Mains' sent as press sample.
My poor hands suffer so much over the colder winter months, and constantly sanitising them in work with an alcohol gel doesn't help matters much either. My wise mother is blue in the face telling me to use a hand cream since I was a teenager but would I listen???.... Not at all!

€5 Naked Palette Dupe! W7 "In the Buff" EyeShadow Palette


Aloha Lads & Ladies!
I have been very excited about sharing this fab palette from W7 with ye since I discovered it a couple of months ago when Cara Pharmacy opened in Galway City Centre, bringing along with it many many lovely new makeups to drool over. It is called the 'In the Buff' Natural Nudes Eye Colour Palette and is a great affordable alternative to the much pricier 'Naked Palette' by Urban Decay. At only €5.00 Irl (or £4.78 UK) it is an absolute steal and nearly 9 times cheaper than the Urban Decay Palettes which cost €44.00 in Ireland.

Tom Ford 'Crimson Noir' Lipstick Review & Demo.


I have heard many many great things about Mr. Tom Ford & his luxury lipsticks over the past year or so in particular and decided to splurge on one of his 18 lipstick offerings, 'Crimson Noir'. At €46.00 here in Ireland this would be a step again above other high-end lipsticks from the likes of Chanel and Dior, an uber high-end lippy if you will......
