Glowing Cheeks on the Cheap

I promised another NYC post about their latest collection and here it is. Today is all about the cheeks and two little beauties under a fiver to get you looking all glowing and pretty for Spring. NoLiTa Pink Cheek Glow Blush is a pretty embossed powder blusher with a hint of...
Who knows about your blog?

Who knows about your blog?

Blogging is an amazing past time and a pleasure to either create or just to browse as a reader. But I have noticed there’s a distinct divide in blogging between people who are very vocal about being  a blogger and those who prefer to keep things a little quieter. Now...
YSL Babydoll Kiss & Blush

YSL Babydoll Kiss & Blush

Yowza. There’s something very exciting when you try out a really beautiful product from a luxury brand and this little number, YSL’s Babydoll Kiss & Blush, is one such beauty. As soon as I opened the packaging, I loved the look and feel of it. Now I need to get...
Body Shop Colour Crush Lipsticks for Spring

Body Shop Colour Crush Lipsticks for Spring

Spring brings about some of the most fun and pretty products of the year and I’ve been lucky enough to try out a whole host of them, including today’s collection. I’d heard about  The Body Shop lippies a few times, often about how their Colour Crush lippie in shade 105...

Hyped Products that you just don’t like? Share yours!

  I’ve bought a lot of makeup over the years and that means I’ve succumbed to the mystical powers of product hype more times than I care to mention. Sometimes, the hype is warranted but other times, I’m left a bit puzzled and wonder if I’m being a fussy so...

NEW! Ask the Experts Weekly Posts – Come Meet the Girls!

I always have tons of beauty questions I want  to ask my fellow beauty bloggers. From their favourite mascaras, powders, foundations, techniques for application, good dupes, top products, skincare advice, blogging tips and all other matters of randomness – I want to know it all. So I thought that if...
Afternoon Tea

Afternoon Tea

Doesn’t this look good enough to eat? I’m trying to stay off the sweeties so maybe that’s why I’m giving this duo a double take, but you can’t deny the cuteness of this pair from Bomb Cosmetics. I’d spotted various cuteness from the brand dotted around many a chemist in...
NYC Intense Lip Colours - Cheap as Chips and just as Tasty

NYC Intense Lip Colours – Cheap as Chips and just as Tasty

Ah I’m seriously loving all the great Spring collections coming out over the past few weeks and these new beauties from NYC are no exception. In fact, all the NYC Spring collection is simply gorgeous and I’ll be featuring more of it in some upcoming posts so keep an eagle...

One of my favourite things to do for blog posts is make up imaginary lists of things I’d like. Even if I never get some of them I love the virtual shopping aspect and the prospect that my eagle eyed fiance and mam (hello, I know you’re reading:)) will be looking at these and considering whether I’ve been good enough all year to get one of these goodies is an added bonus!

Korres Lip Butter Sticks – All the goodness of a lip butter but in a handy tube. I have the pink version of this which I reviewed here and I now use it EVERY DAY so any of the other colours would be a beautiful treat. (Korres are available in Clerys Dublin or online at Feel Unique)

christmas scarf makeup

Warehouse Green Leopard Print Scarf – I bought the wine version of this which I adore and now I’m crazy about the green version, so pretty and green is Christmassy! I would’ve bought this myself but can’t find it anywhere but online so I hope someone takes pity on me!

Urban Decay 24/7 Double Ended Pencil in Naked 3 – I swatched these in person at the Urban Decay event and they’re simply gorgeous, with the Naked 3 pencil being the standout, especially with sparkly darkside on one end!

christmas topshop shoes

My favourite and most comfortable ballerina shoes are the buttery soft ones from Topshop and I’ve had my eye on this gold and black pair for quite some time. The aubergine pair are also gorgeous but frankly I’d take any of them!

christmas makeup

Giorgio Armani Luminous silk powder in Ivory – I’m obsessed with powders and this one sounds just beautiful so I’d love to try it!

MAC BB Cream in Extra Light – Perfectly pale and really lovely on, I have my eye on MAC’s BB Cream and love that you can now order it online from Brown Thomas!

To be honest there’s loads of stuff I want and I don’t even know I want it, get me any type of handbag, any cute scarf, any cute stationary, anything really and I’m happy!!

So girls, what’s on your beauty Christmas list?

  • Kiss & Make-up

    Nice list. On mine are: Sisley’s Pore Minimizer, Bobbi Brown blush, MAC’s Riri Woo lipstick and some Lancome skin care! I know I’m asking for a lot, lol.

    • Makeup Monster

      No I like your list, would love a good pore minimizer!

  • My Stepping Stone Media

    I treated myself to the Urban Decay Naked 3 pencil this week as there was a discount event on in Debenhams and I love it! Really worth the price!

    • Makeup Monster

      Ah brill really want it now!

  • Makeup Monster

    I’d love to try Jo Malone it’s just so expensive!! You’ll love Naked 3!

  • Andreea

    I want the lip butters as well, the potted versions of Jasmine and Mango. Yum! x

    • Makeup Monster

      Great fringed minds think alike!

  • Sarah

    Everything you’ve posted in gorgeous but I entirely agree about those Topshop flats! So comfy!

    • Makeup Monster

      They really are, and pretty too!:)

  • Ah Sure Tis Lovely

    I love browsing online and adding everything I like to my virtual shopping bag. I’m hoping a certain eye shadow palette appears under the tree, I’m pretty sure I’ve hinted enough.

    • Makeup Monster

      Naked 3 perhaps??

  • Nurse Fancy Pants

    I love your list! I think people are usually afraid to get me any beauty products as presents in case I have them already, which sucks as my favourite gifts are beauty & books (and the same happens with the books!). Totally with you on the UD eyeliner, I’d also be quite happy to get the naked 3, mac Russian Red & Plumful, YSL blush rue de babylone and really anything else as well! ;)

    • Makeup Monster

      Oh lovely list!! Yep I love getting a good book at Christmas it’s always such a great gift and I buy a lot of books for other people too!

  • Jennifer Monforton

    Beautiful picks! Those Korres Lip Butters look amazing :)

    • Makeup Monster

      Ah thanks Jen!!

  • RosesandRockets

    I’d like to try some new MAC products and Nars :)

    • Makeup Monster

      I really have an urge to buy some NARS!

  • Yvonne Magner

    Only seeing this now. I’ve used that powder and it it loooovely. So soft and smooth, with a sort of soft focus finish. Must repurchase.

    • Makeup Monster

      Ah brilliant!!
