THE best eye make-up remover EVER?? x


So my darlings,

I taught for today’s post I would do a review on Clarins Instant Eye Make-up Remover, which is one of the most popular products in the Clarins Beauty range. To be honest I actually discovered this product by accident – it was a freebie when I was purchasing my moisturizer and primer 😉 – but I have fallen in love with it.

The product itself is a rose and cornflower blend so it’s a really gentle, oil based product, which easily removes all traces of heavy make-up. I was out last night and you know yourself, it can be quite tricky to remove all of the eyeshadow, eyeliner, mascara and eyelash glue that a girl simply can’t go without on a night on the town! 😉 But Clarins Instant Eye Make-up Remover gets rid of everything in a flash! I always shake the bottle vigorously before use, then soak two cotton pads with the liquid and hold over both eyes for a few minutes and gently wipe away – it honestly works like magic! 🙂

For anyone who has sensitive skin, I promise you will not be irritated by this product, it is so gentle on the skin and has even been both dermatologically and ophthalmologist tested. So if you haven’t already tried it and you have been searching high and low for a quality eye make-up remover (that actually works!) try this one from Clarins. It’s available for around €20 from department stores and pharmacies worldwide. 🙂

YSL Le Teint Touche Éclat Foundation.


Ok, I know I’ve been slightly AWOL over the last week, so my apologies! I was away travelling for a few days.

Anyhoooo… while I was away on my holliers, I picked up the new YSL Touche Éclat Foundation. Now this product has only recently been released but there have been so so many reviews on it – and knowing how good the original Touche Éclat is – I had to try it out for myself!

The foundation comes in a tall  30ml glass bottle – not practical for the handbags I’m afraid 😦 – but the packaging really had that luxury feeling to it. The formula is amazing, it’s so light and feels great on the skin, but at the same time it gives great coverage. The YSL foundation comes in a variety of shades and different tones to suit everyones skin. I got BD50, which is for yellow toned skin. The BR range is for the pink toned folk, and B is for everyone else!

 

 

 

I bought my foundation in Brown Thomas – costing €38 – little pricey but well worth it. It’s a fairly big bottle and I’d say it will last a while as I only use two pumps when I apply it. I even got this gorgeous bracelet free with it! Value for money definitely in my opinion! 😉

 

So have any of you guys tried it out? Let me know what you all think! 🙂

My Beauty Bag ESSENTIALS!!..x..


So as all us ladies know, we are all constantly trying and testing new beauty products. I find myself constantly checking out new brands, however I also find that I tend to suffer from allergies from various items. So if you’ve ever wanted a few essential pieces here’s my top four beauty bag essentials – and I’m talking stuff you will have thrown in your handbag for those emergency touch ups on tired eyes or blemishes.

 

1.)   Mac Studio Fix Concealer.

I use NC30, and I find this product is without a doubt the best concealer I have ever used. I have been a Mac Junkie for years now but without a doubt this is a staple, which I will be a fan of for many years to come. The concealer is great for covering up dark under eye circles, as well as any unwanted spots or red dots. If you haven’t done so already, you simply must try this product – especially anyone out there with any skin allergies, like myself!

 

 

2.)   Mac Studio Fix Powder.

Yeah I know, another Mac product! But honestly this is a fantastic powder! I use NC25 and it’s great for wearing over your foundation, or for quick touchups on the go! 🙂 If you’ve oily skin, it’s fantastic for taking away that little bit of sheen too!

 

 

3.)   Clarins Instant Definition Mascara.

Ok so I have extremely long lashes but they are seriously blonde so I have been searching high and low for that perfect mascara for years on end! So after a lot of searching, I think I have found my newest love!

 

4.)   Clarins Beauty Flash Balm.

This is such an amazing product! I have really dry skin so I am always weary about what moisturizers to use, and I find that this balm from Clarins works a treat. I usually apply a layer of it at night before bed and leave it to soak in over night, but you can also use it as a primer under your makeup. If you try it even once you’ll feel it working its powers on your skin! 🙂

That’s it for now ladies! What are all of your favourite go to products? 🙂 xoxo
