Oto Sticks || MagpieMagpie Blog

18/08/2019

Hi Lovelies,

I hope you guys are all fabulous x

Sorry it’s been a few weeks since I’ve uploaded a post. I have been massively distracted and have quite a bit going on at the moment, so do bear with me.

Let’s chat about OTO STICK. If you’ve been following since the beginning, you’ll know I’d LOVE to get my ears pinned back (and my nose done but that another story). I have no problem with cosmetic surgery, my feeling is that it’s your body you can do as you please, within reason of course. Your body Your choice. So the only reason I haven’t done it is funds, and my crippling fear of needles and Doctors.

OTO STICK is a great alternative for those who wanna try out the whole ear pinning if they aren’t sure, or who don’t have the funds. They are quick and easy and last, once you get the hang of it that is!

I’d say you’ll go through about two boxes before you get it, but once you’ve got it, your laughin!! I tend to apply them after I’ve washed my hair. I scrub the area clean, get all of my hair out of the way, and then clean the area again with antiseptic, just make sure the area is dry before application.

Before removing the protective bit play around with it and see where you think might be best to apply it. I find the closer to where my ear meets my head (if that makes sense) is best. If you’re a glasses wearer like me you’ll have to do this otherwise it’s a HOT MESS.

L’Oreal Infaillible 24H Fresh Wear Foundation || MagpieMagpie Blog

23/06/2019

Hi Lovlies,

How are we all? I know you haven’t heard from me in a while on here, but hopefully you’ve been stalking me on instagram. I have also been trying to get better at Facebook… thats not going great ha ha. 

It’s been a hot minute (as the cool kids say) since I’ve done a good old fashioned foundation review.

It’s been a tricky subject for me as being on the roaccutane has really changed my skin.

When I first started using the L’Oreal Infaillible 24H Fresh Wear Foundation my skin was blemish riddled and very oily. I hadn’t heard any of the hype I was just trying so hard to find a whiter than white colour match because I knew tan wouldn’t be an option for me in the coming months.

If you guys can believe it, NO. 15 Porcelaine is the perfect match shade for me. I know WTF right.

Collins’ Beach Cafe And Seaweed Baths

24/10/2018

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.

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.

22/07/2018

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.

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.
