Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask

July 25, 2014


Sometimes a product comes along out of nowhere and knocks my socks off. Case in point right here: Sinéad very kindly sourced this from a relative who was away in the States as a birthday pressie. I'd been very curious about BITE Beauty for a while; they're a brand specialising in luxury lip products, what's not to love?! The only clincher is that as it stands, they're only available from Sephora in the US.

Tan Hacks

July 23, 2014


It's that time of year where short sleeves at the very least are the norm almost daily; the sun has been coming and going here in Dublin but, the humidity has been a constant so, not many of us have been covering up. This month and August are honestly probably the only months of the year that I regularly fake tan - I don't mind being pale at all but when I'm in a t-shirt daily it's nice to at least attempt a bit of a healthy glow.

Beauty Boxes: Pros, Cons and Favourites

July 16, 2014


I'm a big dirty cynic. After the initial excitement and newness of beauty boxes, I was a bit meh about the whole thing. In theory, the idea of getting a prettily wrapped parcel, stuffed full of treats to your doorstep every month for a tenner was great. In reality, after the company passed the stage where they wanted to impress customers with an insanely good box, there were monthly tweets complaining about too many tiny samples, unfair distribution between Ireland and the UK, boxes arriving late etc etc etc. It all seemed very messy.
