Cleansing Oils: Caudalie vs. The Body Shop

Cleansing oils are one of those products that used to be sort of 'niche' - something for those in the know, a beauty editors' secret. I actually always think of STELLAR ed Kirstie when writing about cleansing oils; a longtime fan of the Shu Uemura version, she's probably the first person I ever heard wax lyrical about the OCM (oil cleansing method).

Urban Decay De-Slick vs. MAC Fix+

Every blog post idea in my brain at the moment is a product comparison. I've been trying loads of bits out and it just so happens that a few of them are pretty similar. Shopping as a blogger is funny because you never know when something similar to what you've just bought might land in your lap the next week - not that I'm complaining.

TheBalm Meet Matte - Charming

I've found my autumn lipstick, It couldn't be more typical of what you see everywhere on Instagram and YouTube around this time of year - a rich, dark burgundy lip with a super-matte finish. I'm a massive fan of red lips and my dark red fetish (sounds dodgy) is growing - other favourites include MAC Viva Glam I, MAC Diva and MAC Burgundy lip pencil.

New & Cheap Bits

Like I've said in previous posts, I'm quite broke and busy at the moment. Story of everyone's life, right? Now everything is relative, and I'm very privileged and over the moon to be doing a Masters this year, but the fees took a huge chunk of my money and I'm being pretty careful with my spending as a result.

This is really not the biggest hardship, and I always love finding cheap gems. It's really satisfying to find something incredible for €6 rather than €60 (not that my love for NARS is any less as a result...)

Skincare: Back to Basics

When skin goes a bit haywire, it's best to strip back on the products and concentrate on the best basics. I've had a great run of it with skin recently after the Murad Medi Peel, and overall my skin is still more uniform, but out of nowhere I got a few massive zits that really threw me. They were so big and sore that I was being pretty careful about what I was using, and came to stick to the same products more than ever.

MAC Huggable Lip Colours for 2015

Isn't it great when MAC cop on to themsleves and make a sporadically released, limited edition product available again? The Huggable Lip Colour* line has been much-coveted among MAC limited edition fiends for years now, causing a bit of a stampede with every release. Now, I was under the impression that these were permanent this time around, but the Internet tells me otherwise - if you want to snap one up, Brown Thomas still have them in stock.

The Best Budget Nude

Nude lips seem to be all I blog about these days. It's gone from a passing interest to a mild obsession - you only have to look at my collection of MAC nudes to realise that!
