The Perfect Winter Lip - Revlon Black Cherry

A dark lipstick is a winter essential. This beauty from Revlon is To. Die. For.
It applies beautifully, has intense pigmentation and isn't in the slightest bit drying. I also feel like it would look great on a range of different skin tones. You can purchase it for a bargain price of €10.69 here

NARS Glossybox 2015!

You guuuyyyss it came! I've been waiting for this for days since getting my dispatch email. 
I do feel really bad for anyone who didn't manage to get one, I'm not going to get into that because it was a huge sh!tstorm and major drama over the issues people faced when trying to order the box. 
ANY HOO, I thought I'd do a post showing everyone what was included in the box in case you missed it.

Spray On Nail Polish??? Nails Inc The Paint Can

Before becoming a nail technician I remember the struggle of painting my nails. Polish everywhere, the shaky hand, realising I now have to paint the opposite hand, NIGHTMARE.
Fast forward a few years and technology has finally come through for us ladies in the form of Nail Inc's The Paint Can. Its nail polish, in a can. OH MY GOD WHY DID I NOT INVENT THIS MYSELF.

Laura Mercier Radiance Foundation Primer (REVIEW)

This is one of those products that everyone seems to rave about. I've seen mentions of it circling around the blogging world for quite a while now but I always put off buying it because of the price tag (€42 on A few weeks ago I took the plunge and ordered it, I couldn't wait until it came and had visions of how amazing my skin was going to look. 

''Laura Mercier, the pioneer of Foundation Primer, introduces a breakthrough radiant formula to the collection. Creating the ultimate canvas for foundation and makeup, Foundation Primer - Radiance provides a sheer, healthy glow to the skin.'' -

So yesterday morning I ran into Boots before I headed home to grab some dry shampoo, I had ran out a week ago and I was dying a slow and oily death without it. They had signs up everyone that it was 3 for 2 on everything... 40 minutes later and I headed to the till with a basket full of stuff. Now in my brain I was thinking, ok well if I'm buying one thing I may as well buy another thing so I had get one thing free.. You keepin' up here??? Que Emma pacing the aisles like an absolute lunatic trying to find stuff to add to my basket to maximise the savings. I was close to asking the cashier if I could do 2 separate transactions so all the expensive things could go together and the cheaper together (anyone else watch Extreme Couponers, no? ok)

My Current Holy Grail Beauty Products

I'm a self confessed beauty product hoarder. I will literally try ANYTHING if I see even so much as one person raving about it. I'm constantly on the quest for a perfect product so I thought I would share with you all the products I currently consider my holy grail items. The products I repurchase and rave to everyone about! 

 This is closely followed by the L'oreal Micellar Water but I always get the Garnier version purely because its a larger bottle for a cheaper price. WHO DOESN'T LOVE A BARGAIN. I love their mini version also, its so handy to throw in a bag for travelling or staying at a friends house! It removes every trace of makeup in a matter of minutes without too much vigorous rubbing.

Zerreau Towel Off Dry Shampoo Foam - Holy Grail or Holy Fail???

So when I saw the Zerreau Towel Off Shampoo Foam in May's glossybox I couldn't wait to try it.
All you do is massage the foam into your roots and then towel dry your hair and you're supposedly left with hair that looks freshly washed...
I was not.

So last week I ordered my first Glossybox. I've always wanted to try Glossybox but to be honest I couldn't justify the €20 odd euro for a glorified lucky dip of beauty samples (with the exception of a few full sized products). BUT since I had a discount code I decided to take the plunge and subscribe for my first box. I won't say how excited I was because to be frank its embarrassing.
It finally came yesterday and even though its now June I just had to open my big gob and tell you all what I thought as if I'm important and my opinion matters to you. 

So here it is in all its prettyness and glor-i-ness (yes I'm aware that it's probably not a word)
