It’s that time of year again folks; the event all of us have been waiting for, second only to the near hysteria the Eurovision and Jedward brought us. Yes, it’s Rose of Tralee time again; more commonly known as the Lovely Girls competition by many of us reared on Father Ted. This will be Daithi’s first year presenting as a married man and I wonder what gaieties he has in store this time around? I can barely contain my excitement Read on »
I’ve seen some gorgeous visuals, and read some interesting press releases in the past few days, which seem to indicate that cosmetics companies are bringing back classic Hollywood beauty.
Here we have Estée Lauder’s Mad Men Collection. This will feature a limited edition rose coloured Creme Rouge and a classic cherry-red lipstick, ensconsed in the most beautiful jeweled gilt packaging. Truly a throwback to 50s glamour.
Bless me father, for I have hauled. It has been less than a week since my last makeup spree.
Not long after I hauled some E.L.F (more posts coming on that soon) I went and hauled again, this time some Sleek MakeUP. I had a valid excuse, I was ordering the new Nude palette and adding a few extras made the delivery charge worthwhile, right? Yeah, the twisted logic of an addict. The Nude palette review should be coming up shortly (I’m deferring to the wonderful Rachelle for that one) so in the meantime here’s some blushes and a Pout Polish.
L-R: Life's a Peach, Rose Gold, Pixie Pink. Clicky for embiggenment.
I don’t own much from E.L.F Cosmetics. Their products seem to be hit and miss and reviews are mixed for all but their Studio Line brushes. My resolve broke recently though when they offered a 50% off promocode, sure I wouldn’t be too out of pocket if they didn’t work. So I added a few bits to the basket. Then some more. Then some more. Sure it was all so cheap! But pennies make pounds and of course the result was a massive haul, equivalent price wise to a few high end products! Yeah my finger hit the pay now button before my brain did the math. I could have been majorly kicking myself had I just wasted a hunk of cash on a lot of junk. So let’s see how I fared, starting with the best of the bunch, the mineral blushes.
