Sunday Pamper

One of my favourite things to do on a Sunday morning is to take time to look after both my skin and my hair. This is essential for me to do before another busy week begins. By allowing my hair and skin time to renew itself before a busy monday, my week always starts off on a bright note. Scroll down for the products which I used today.

What products do you use to pamper?

My wishlist

Hola Beauties! How are you??

It’s been quite a while since I last posted here… well I just finished my state Exams and I am officially on holidays. It’s crazy how quick my secondary school experience ended. I can’t believe that I am finally done my exams. It felt that they would never end, but they did! Now that the stress of school is over, I plan to put more posts on my blog, meaning that I may need some new products.

Since I wanted to make a fairly quick post to get my blog started up again, I decided to make a post of things that I currently have my eye on. It was my birthday a couple of weeks, so I got a good bit of money. I’m travelling to London in about three weeks so I’ll probably binge a bit when I get there. I realised after making this list, that I seem to be obsessed with Urban Decay at the moment. I can’t help it, their collection is so pretty, you know? I haven’t bought any new makeup in about six months so I definitely deserve a shopping spree – celebrating my exams ending would be a great excuse to go out shopping!

Anyways, here is my current wish list:

  • Naked Heat


The minute I saw this palette, I instantly fell in love with it. I have three naked palettes: Naked 3, Naked Smokey and Naked Basics. I love them. I have only actually ever really used Urban Decay eyeshadows but I do want to try more of their range in the future. This palette is not released at the time of writing this but I think that the colours are really pretty. It appears to be the perfect palette for the warm winter months. I will , of course, wait to purchase until it has been out a  while – I would rather read loads of reviews before throwing money down the drain.

  • Garnier Camomile face mask


Anyone who knows me will know that I adore face masks. Nothing brings me more joy than a face mask. I also love Garnier. I have tried the moisture bomb mask and loved it so imagine how excited I am to try Garnier’s new Camomile mask in the moisture bomb range. Due to the hot weather, my skin has been feeling very dry and tired so this mask looks like the perfect mask for me. The thing that I love the most about Garnier is the fact that their products are great for skin for an inexpensive price. €1.80 for this facemask. What a bargain! I have no idea when I’ll actually get to try this face mask but I am looking forward to it!

  • Naked Skin Shapeshifter


This is probably the item that I’m least likely to purchase on this list. Mainly for the reason that I’m really pale and I worry that the light shades on this contour palette will be too dark for me- it happens a lot with  things like this. This is a three-in-one complexion palette for contouring, highlighting and color-correcting. It claims to have blendable and build-able shades. I really like the look of this palette and if has great reviews on Debenhams. But for €47 I will have to try the shades out on my face before even thinking about buying it.

  • Mac Burgundy nines

In general, I think that the MAC cosmetics Nine Times palettes are gorgeous- I love the look of all of them. But there is something about the Burgundy one that really catches my eye and stands out to me. Firstly, I love the purple toned colours. I wouldn’t be a big fan of such colours but at the moment, they are really jumping out at me. I have been looking at this palette for a while now, and I definitely hope to purchase it when I’m in London. It seems to overall have great reviews with a 4/5 star rating. If I end up buying it, I’ll definitely post a review here.

 

 

  • Naked illuminated trio


Recently I have been highlight crazy and this beautiful highlighting palette by Urban Decay definitely catches my eye. It’s a limited edition trio designed to create a sophisticated, Naked shimmer. It claims to be a lightweight product with light reflecting properties. It creates an instant glow on the user’s body or face. It includes three shades: Pyrite (the gold shade), Oasis (frosted taupe), and Twilight ( iridescent pink shade) as shown in the picture above. Like many other products on this list, it has many good reviews. For €35, I really like the look of this palette and may buy if I come across it when I’m out shopping.

  • L’Oreal Pure Clay Purity mask


I already have the detox face wash and glowface wash  from this range. I love them and plan to review them sooner or later. However, recently I met up with my best friend and her skin was radiant looking. I was literally staring in awe at her skin for a good ten minutes before I finally asked her, what her skin secrets were. She laughed, and told me that it was the L’oreal purity mask. I was amazed and I knew that I need that mask. The results on her skin was out of this world. She was wearing no makeup, yet her skin looked as if it belonged to a model’s. I quickly went online and started to read reviews- her experience was not unique. The three clays and eucalyptus seem to do amazing things for the skin. I am a big fan of clay masks for my troubled T-zone. I’ll probably buy the three packet mini’s to try all three masks since I love the face wash versions.

Well beauties, that is all of my wish list for today. Other items that nearly made the cut include Too Faced “Papa don’t peach”, Urban Decay’s optical primer,  and Barry M contour cream palette.

What is on your wish list at the moment?

Thank you for reading, and until next time, C.

My favourite facemask of all time

So after nearly a year of no posting, I have finally decided to come back and try my best to get back into my blog. I feel the blog itself needs a bit of a revamping but I will be able to get onto doing that later on. One thing that has not changed in the last ten months or so is my obsession with beauty and skincare. I adore both of them. I often feel that my makeup clogs up my pores however when I wear a lot of it and I always loved to remedy that. My skin is very important to me, and I like to think that if I look after it when I’m young, I will set up good habits for later on in life.

It is for that reason that I bought the Soap and Glory as it is a deep pore detox mask. I had honestly never read reviews on this product before I bought it but after the first time I used it, I fell deeply in love with it. One of the coolest thing about this mask however is that it’s a self heating mask. And it also changes colour from the original green colour to a light colour. Now this mask is for people with Oily or combination skin, the latter is what I have.

So how do I use it ? Well, I simply dab a bit onto my face when it’s dry before I wet my fingers and rub it in. The water on my fingers trigger the self heat and makes the colour change from green to blue. Then, after about five minutes, I wash it off with a warm, wet washcloth. I would really recommend this product to everyone I know as not only does it unclog my pores, it also leaves my face feeling very soft as well.

Usually in Boots Ireland, the product costs €15.99 but at the moment, there is a sale on selected Soap and Glory products meaning it is only €11.99 right now. In the UK boots, it is usually £11.50.

Thank you all for reading, and until next time, xx.
