I read about the L’oreal Feria Pastels home dye kits well before last Christmas and try as I might I couldn’t find out when they were launching in Ireland. I made do with jumping on the pastel haired bandwagon by having several run ins with Crazy Hair Colour but never did really achieve the subtle pastel look I was after; check out my purple hair that’s no so pastel below.

I definitely take an anything they can do I can DIY (maybe not better) approach when it comes to nails. Whether it’s frankening, foiling or gel-ing I’m game. Recently, the pretty hard to get in Ireland, Illamasqua released an interesting range of “mottled” nail polishes as part of their limited edition l’Imperfection collection. These babies are definitely on my lust-have list should I come across them in real life. But until then, I’ll just have to make do with channeling the look in my DIY style.
It’s not often that I’ll post a press release verbatim but when I saw this I knew it was too good not to! Want some Hollywood glamour to brighten up a dull January? Read on to find out how to recreate red carpet looks the gorgeous L’Oreal spokeswomen sported at the Golden Globes 2013.
I am not sure what is up with me lately but my hair has been driving me batty. I’m just not sure what to do with it and to be perfectly honest I have yet to find a hairdresser in Athy/Carlow that I would trust to give me an overhaul.
I have been experimenting a lot at home; I even bought a hairdressing scissors on ebay and have been giving myself the odd trim here and there. I decided to try out the L’oreal ombre kit too recently and I’m becoming a dab hand at the ‘oul home dye jobs!
I picked up the L’oreal kit for about €9.00 in Dunnes stores recently and it was an absolute cinch to use. The pack contained the dye (made up of a cream & powder), gloves, a crappy ass brush and some 2n1 shampoo stuff. Read on »
Behold the beauties above that are the new L’Oreal Color Riche Quad Eye-shadows; designed to make eyes smoulder and add luminosity! Priced at the super affordable €11.99 per palette and coming in a decent wardrobe of shades they really are worth a little pay-day treat. Myself and Kat got the whole collection to try and we are both really liking them. Read on »
The relatively new Hair Expertise range from L’Oreal has been sitting in my bathroom quite a while now, so I’d like to take this opportunity to apologise to these gorgeous, shiny bottles of awesomeness!
When they first arrived I saw the “No Sulphates” tag and immediately became terrified. Sure haven’t I only been lashing on sulphates in all different shapes and forms for years? Isn’t that what’s been keeping my bushy, knotty and frizzy hair somewhat clean? Read on »

But thankfully, these ones are calorie free! Ladies, meet the newest collection from L’Oréal, Miss Candy. [They're sweets goddammit! SWEETS! *grumble*] Read on »
There is a plethora of newly released hair oil products on the market lately which can make it confusing and time consuming trying to decide which one is right for you. Indeed I have somehow ended up with near on a drawer full of oil based styling products! First world problems, eh?!
L’Oreal have been clever and have taken the guesswork out of it for you by launching two Extraordinary Oils; one for all hair types and one specifically aimed at coloured hair. The only difference between the two is that the oil for coloured hair contains UV filters which in the glorious sunny weather we have been having of late will protect your colour from fading. The oil contains six floral oil extracts (chamomile, dog daisy, linseed, lotus, rose and tiare oils) but silicone also features heavily. Which is fine by me! My hair loves silicone.
I was lucky enough to trial the Extraordinary Oil Sublime Hair Enhancer (that was a mouthful!) for All Hair Types. Read on »
I don’t have loyalties with many things in my life and beauty products are no different. Whilst I do have a HG conditioner I tend to chop and change my hair products on a very frequent basis. It’s a luxury I didn’t have for a year or so as I had to repair my hair after a couple of years of bleaching. Now that my hair is back to a sort of normality I have been experimenting with supermarket brands alongside more luxury haircare.
This leads me to a newish product that I have been using and seeing good results with. It’s L’Oreal Elvive Triple Resist shampoo and conditioner (bought for under a tenner in my local Petitts). It claims to reinforce, nourish and strengthen fragile hair with a tendency to fall. Read on »
