NYX Macaron LipSticks; Application, Swatches & Review!

Howdy Guys!
Finally got around to swatching these bad boys for ye.
Sad the Macaron range hasn't yet made it to the Irish shores so I am still without the purple shades #5 Violet and #9 Lavender but I'll get my grubby little mitts on them eventually! ha ha
I bought them directly from the NYX Cosmetics website  and used the coupon code WELCOME25 which gave me 25% off. This may only be for new customers though, not 100% sure about that. No harm in trying it out anyhow if any of you do decide to buy from the site.

Colour Pop Festival Makeup & Coastal Scents Hot Pot Review.

Hey Guys!
Since we are firmly in the throws of summer here I was inspired to do a summer inspired look and what's more summery that a music festival!
Since my last festival makeup was a tad more paired back and with only one colour, I wanted this one to be a little more dramatic and bright.

Try-on Style Summer Fashion Haul | Primark, Romwe, SheInside & Persunmall.

Howdy Guys,
It's been ages since I did a fashion post so here's a haul for ye showcasing items from,, and Primark!
It's quite a summery haul but it wouldn't be a 'Shiv's Style' video without a couple of cardigans! Ha ha, I am obsessed with them after all.
The video is a try-on style video inspired by Cora of Vintage Or Tacky rather than an impersonal lookbook so I hope you enjoy it!

Rihanna Makeup Tutorial (CFDA Awards)

Last Weeks CFDA Awards had everyone talking about one thing, a dress, worn by Rihanna of course.
It was a beautiful dress (designed by Adam Selman), no-one can deny that, but it was also very very see through, and bould ol' Rihanna decided not to wear anything underneath! The dress was covered in hand-applied Swarovski crystals, but while it was super blingin', it was really quite stunning!
Thankfully she wore knickers, a flesh coloured thong, but her boobs were on show for the world to see... not that we all haven't seen them before so no biggy, right!?

Coastal Scents 'Revealed 2' EyeShadow Palette.

Last week Coastal Scents released their 'Revealed 2' eyeshadow palette, the follow up to the original,  hugely popular 'Revealed' palette. It is a 20 colour palette with a mixture of mattes and shimmers with a predominantly pink undertone running throughout, so lovers of the Urban Decay 'Naked 3' palette will be impressed. I have been told that the original 'Revealed' is a mix of both the first and second Naked palettes.

Colourful MAC 'Playland' Inspired Makeup Look :)

Hey Guys :)
One of my favourite collections to hit MAC counters in a long time is here and called 'Playland'.
It's a fun and kooky themed collection with a great product line-up!!
Check out this Musings of a Muse post to get a good look at all the products.
 I went and designed a facechart with some of the colours in mind keeping the look relatively wearable but still bright and fun!
