Penneys Ps… Beauty Eye Candy Collection

Penneys know they have most of us over a barrel. You have to have some steely cajones to be able to wander into a Penneys and not emerge with at least socks, new pjs and their makeup remover pads (which are deadly). While I’m a divil for Penneys, their PS… Beauty Line is one I’m only starting to get to know better. I’ll admit it, I dismissed it as being a cheap line of beauty products that was grand for younger girls just starting out but not good enough for a seasoned makeup addict like myself. But fair play to Penneys, they’re releasing new products at a steady pace and gaining momentum with each new collection. Yup, some of it is just cheap, yes you’ll struggle to find an unused product because some lads and ladies seem to think every product is a tester in Penneys but I have to say, there’s some fun things worth trying. I was at the Penneys A/W clothes event recently and you’re given a gift card at the end so I wandered into the Mary Street Penneys for a gander that weekend and emerged with a crap load of stuff including some of their brand new Eye Candy beauty release.  Continue Reading

Summer Blushes

Sometimes I just get the urge to pair a load of pretty products together in a post because, well, look at them! Today is all about summery blushes because the improving weather has me stepping away from nudes and roses and embracing pinks and peaches. There’s so many lovely releases out there and I’m touching on a few of them today if you fancy a wee splurge and a nudge in the right direction! Continue Reading

Too Faced Natural Love (aka the €72 palette)

I hate reviews like this. Originally, when I was given this at the Too Faced event, I was stupidly excited once I got my mitts on it and skipped home like I’d won a little something on the lotto. There’s no getting away from it, it’s a sexy palette and it reduced nearly every blogger (including myself) I saw to quivering messes once they saw it. It swatches beautifully, it has a gorgeously soft and dreamy shade selection and come on,  it has freakin’ bunnies on the packaging.  Not to be blinded by its good looks, I remembered that it was (at the time) €62 which is a serious chunk of change and I kept in mind how I had dithered over it in Debenhams before being invited to the event and gifted it. So I began working hard over the last few weeks trying to figure out whether it was worth the money which I felt was possible considering you get 30 shades. But then a girl very kindly contacted me on Instagram to let me know she had gone to buy the palette and the price had changed to €72. And so, I’ve had to come back to this review because suddenly €72 seems like mad money. So here we are, my review of the seriously beautiful and seriously pricey Natural Love Palette. Continue Reading
