Hi Lovelies,

Well I can tell you I’m glad that couple of weeks is over, and that this one is nearly over!! Sorry I missed you guys last week, and this Sunday, but I just couldn’t. It was just a couple of those weeks, ye know! 

I think I’ve finally gotten back in the swing of Jersey life, well as much as someone like me can, and I’m ready to get back to blogging! 

While I was home I had the pleasure of visiting the seaweed baths in Ballybunion. They are opens from the end of May till the mid September.  My mother is an avid visiter in the summer so I was quite excited.

Beauty Mascara Soap & Glory

Soap & Glory Thick & Fast HD Mascara High Definition Collagen Coat || MagpieMagpie Blog

03/10/2018

I’ve been on the hunt for a new drugstore mascara, of course, didn’t know where to start. At the time it was just after Christmas and there were a few Christmas sets on sale. I’d been thinking of trying a few things from Soap & Glory so when I saw the set was on sale and there was a mascara and an eyeliner in it I was sold!

I ended up not trying the mascara for a few months because I’ve been trying to use up a product before moving onto the next. I’m still going strong with this! I hadn’t heard anything about the Soap & Glory mascara so didn’t know what to expect. As it was a gift set I couldn’t actually see what the wand would be like or the eyeliner, which was funny coz I can be SUPER fuzzy about them. I realise now I could have just gone down to the stand.

Hello lovelies, so this weeks post is a bit different. It’s that time of year again so of course Reasons is on the agenda! This year is no different! As always the excitement is brewing with-in me and of course Pinterest is my go to and with the new changes they’ve put into place, I’ve fallen back in love.

Here’s a quick look at my top festival MakeUp Looks from Pinterest and why!

 

  1. The Sheer Glitter Under Eye:

This is actually tricker to replicate then I thought so bare in mind if you wanna try replicate this you will need time, and a few small makeup brushes. This look has definitely inspired this years Reasons UK MakeUp Look.

Beauty Lipstick Mac Cosmetics Minis

New MAC Mini Lipsticks

10/05/2018

Ok… Round two on writing this blog post! I need to stop blindly relying on the internet connection, So annoying.

I’m sure you’ve guessed by now, I’m obsessed with minis! I’m not really sure why to be honest, but it’s something that I’ve always gravitated to. I just think they are so cute, and of course so convenient.

Make-up wise I think it’s such a great way to try new products without the commitment! So when I saw on instagram that MAC would be bringing out minis lipsticks, I was rather excited! Purhaps a bit too excited! 

My local MAC stockist is Voisons Department store, their MAC counter has their own instagram account so I pretty much spent a week checking it at every spare moment. Once they popped up I ran down on my break to get myself FAUX. 

Unfortunately I hadn’t really thought about the fact that they probably would do EVERY single mac lippie in a mini, but I was quite confident that FAUX would be one of the chosen ones. Well… I was wrong!

I can’t lie, I was a bit miffed and I’m sure my face showed it! But I had the pleasure of being helped by the lovely Sandra (her Instagram is @vintagebellavitta). She’s always great and super helpful! So of course I walked out with two new mini lippies.

Charlotte Tilbury: Instant Look In A Palette – BEAUTY GLOW || MagpieMagpie.ie

25/02/2018

Hi Lovlies,

Sorry this is late! I was hoping to get it up on Thursday, but yet again that didn’t happen! I think I’ve got a new scheduling plan in place that I think will better suit my lifestyle. What I’ve been doing for the past however many years clearly isn’t working so I’m gonna change it up and see how we go.

I’m so excited to chat about this product! I have always wanted some Charlotte Tilbury and had been hinting for year.  Finally “Santie” got the hint and brought me the Instant Look In  Palette. I didn’t realise that there were three options, but the one I got was the Beauty Glow edition from Feelunique.

I was so so so excited to try it! I had heard so much hype from other bloggers and youtubers and knew it was going to be good! I was so good I even took the time to restrain myself and take photos.

Five Winter Skincare You Need In Your Life || MagpieMagpie.ie

01/02/2018

Hi Lovelies, sorry I haven’t been on here in a while. I hope you’ve all been keeping well and that 2018 is being good to you. x 

This week its all about my winter skincare essentials. I hope you enjoy x

Skincare is a big part of my life but more often than not I don’t spend a huge amount on it.

However over the past few years there are some skincare items that I’m more than happy to spend the money on. Here are my top five!

1. Clarins Hand Cream 

I love this stuff all year round, but when the winter time comes my hands are in much need of moisture. I’ve used a number of hand creams over the years but this has to be my tried and tested. It is expensive, BUT it is a large tube and a little goes a long way! I tend to use about a pea (or smarties) sized amount each time, an almond size amount if I’ve had a cleaning frenzy! I’m not super keen on strong smelling hand creams as sometimes it can bring on a migraine, so this one is perfect for me! It has a slight scent, but its more like a “natural” cream scent. It absorbs really well, doesn’t leave a residue, and leaves my hands super moisturised and soft! It claims to also help with age spots and strengthen nails, I can’t vouch for these claims so I’ll leave it here.

This hand cream for me is the one to beat so if there is a hand cream you love, let me know in the comments below. I’m always on the hunt for new products!  

2. Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector

Again I use this all year round but with all the air conditioning and the cold air my lips are begging for it. I use lipstick during the day,  but by the time I get home my lips are in desperate need of some hydration. Continue Reading

Five Red Lippies you need this Christmas season

21/12/2017

Hi Loves, sorry this is so late and that I’ve been a bit MIA. Life has really knocked me for six so I’ve been struggling a bit. But it’s here, better late than never hopefully xo

A bold statement lip has become one of my staples, but a red lip can still be daunting even for me. That being said I think it can take your look to another level and is a must have for anyone who loves make-up. 

I have a lippie for everyone in this line up. From the novice to the pro, bargain to blow out. I’ve kept it classic and went for that “Christmas” red, but do keep in mind that these are what I’ve chosen for me. Meaning they suit my skin tone, hair colouring and style, they may not work for everyone. 

I’ve also decided to throw in matching nail varnish. I love matchy matchy so if I can match my lippie and my nails, I’m all over it!
