Perfume Samples: Givenchy, Lacoste and Burberry

So recently some of you may have noticed my tweet about receiving some free perfume samples. I was in Debenhams searching for an aftershave/cologne as a birthday present for my brother to give to his friend because he had no time to go into town and get it himself (I'm just so good, I know). Now let it be known I know NOTHING when it comes to aftershave for guys. I'm useless at it, so after over half an hour of aimless smelling I decided to just ask one of the ladies who worked there to help me. Within 5 minutes she had found a perfect one at half price also! She was just so helpful! To top it all off she gave me all these lovely perfume samples for going and buying my brothers presents for him.

Backcombing *Magic* Brush

So  a little while ago I got this little gem for only €1.50 in Pennys. Now as much as I like taking care of my hair and making sure it's in great condition I also ADORE having big bouncy hair! I know, I know....backcombing is bad for your hair but I like big hair! So when I spotted this thing I just had to buy it and give it a go.

MUA Probase Conceal and Highlight Kit

Hey everyone!
Hope you all had a really great St. Patricks weekend.

So in this post I'll be reviewing the MUA Pro-base conceal &brighten palette. I brought this around a month ago from Superdrug for around €4. Now as many of you may know I'm a big fan of MUA, I think they make great quality cosmetics for often less than €5! Their eye palette ranges are quality dupes of the Urban Decay Naked palettes and I'm a big fan also of their lipsticks. So far for me they can do no wrong!

My Want List #1

So last week was a hectic week to say the least. It was Charity Week at my college. Now this is a week where lots of events are held every day throughout campus in order to raise money for charity. In fact this is also a week where every student goes just a little crazy and spends the week drinking! It's great for your social life but not so great for your liver or bank balance. As you know I no longer live near college, I've moved back home (sob!) so I spent the week sleeping on floors or couches. So as you can guess after the

Applying makeup on public transport...Yay or Nay?

Okay, I've a confession to make. I'll admit it. I'm a serial offender when it comes to applying makeup on the bus. I know, i know! I've read the articles where its explicitly explained that a dab or lipgloss or a quick powder of the nose is just fine but putting your full face on is a big fat NO NO, but I can't help it.

My Favourite Lipsticks

This post is just a little short one with swaths and pictures of some of my most used lipsticks. I wasn't a big lipstick fan up until about a year ago and now I can't get enough! I'm in love with pinks at the moment, but what I really want is a nice orange shade.

Bronzed Smokey Eye Look

This is an eye look I love to wear using my Urban Decay Naked palette. Its so simple to but looks really nice (in my opinion).
