As many of you know I recently moved from Ireland to France and ever since I first landed in Paris I’ve been utterly enamoured with the influence of the beauty industry over here. It seems as if everywhere you turn there’s a Dior or a Chanel counter to be found, and better yet, there’s a Sephora around almost every corner. Now don’t ask me why we don’t have this beauty-haven of a franchise over in Ireland. It just never came our way for whatever reason, so you can only imagine my delight going in to spend my time scouring the beauty counters for the big brands that are often hard to stumble upon back home.
Of course I went a little crazy when I saw that Sephora had their own line of sheet masks available so today I thought I would grab a few to try out and share my thoughts on them with you. Now I know I’m probably a little late to the party here, but as I said, these masks just don’t exist over in Ireland so I was really curious to see what they would be like. Continue reading →
The Beauty Products Your Skin Has Been Dying to Try
Hey everyone, it’s Mew. Today I’m here with another little beauty post for you guys all about the most fabulous Korean skincare products to pamper your beautiful selves with. By now we all know the wonders a basic Korean skincare regime can work for our faces but often we neglect things like face masks and serums which give our skin the revitalising nourishment that it’s so often crying out for. Today I’m going to be showing you some of my top K-Beauty masks for treating your skin to the extra bit of TLC that it deserves. Are you ready? Let’s start!
Hey guys! It’s Mew! Welcome back to another beauty post here on our blog.
In this week’s video I wanted to try out some Kylie Jenner Lip Kits as well as the In Love With The Koko set of liquid lipsticks. I had never given these hyped lippies a try ever before in my life and I thought what better way to do it than on camera! If you wanna see my reaction to them and know what they’re like, you can check the video out on our channel here.
While you can watch my overall impression of them and see how they apply in the video, I also thought I would give you a little sneak-peak here and share some of my thoughts on them with you!
The first thing I had to try was obviously one of the infamous lip kits. The one I opted for was the ‘Strawberries and Cream‘ shade which is a velvet matte lipstick. Honestly I was so shocked with how my lips looked with this even after applying just the lipliner. It was as if I had injections, they just looked so much more bloated!
Both the lip liner and they lipstick apply really smoothly and evenly and the lipstick is just so thick and creamy, making it a dream to apply. The pigment is extremely strong and it lasts for a good few hours throughout the day, even after eating and drinking! This lip kit is definitely one of my best purchases of the year because the quality is just so amazing. I can’t stress it enough.
The next thing I got from Kylie Cosmetics is the In Love with the Koko set which contains four liquid lipsticks. My favourite of them is the shade Doll which is this beautiful coral/red colour. The set also contains a gloss (Sugar Plum) which has a very pretty, glowy hue as well as two other lipsticks, Bunny which is a darker more mauve shade and Baby Girl which is also quite a coral shade with a pinker undertone to it.
The quality of this set is just as good as that of the lip kit. The only exception being that the lipsticks don’t come with lipliners to accompany them. Honestly though that really doesn’t bother me at all because I think they look just as good by themselves. The colours are just so rich and vivid. I love how they look!
Overall I am just so in love with these products. I wasn’t really expecting them to be worth much of the praise that they receive at all but after trying them out I have been in love with them ever since!
So that’s all from me for now. Don’t forget to check out the video here! Thank you guys so much for reading and for watching and I’ll see you very soon in my next post!
Morning and Nighttime Products for Maintaining Healthy, Glowing Skin.
Hey guys! It’s Mew here and welcome back to another beauty post here on our blog.
Recently I revamped my morning and night routine with some amazing Korean beauty products and today I felt like sharing my current skincare regime with you.
It’s really only over the course of the past year or so that I have discovered the holy grail that is Korean skincare and there can be no doubt that Korean girls have got their skincare down. You barely even need to take one glance at them to notice how flawless their skin is.
At the moment I couldn’t be more obsessed with stocking up and trying out new skincare supplies that are going to take my pampering regime to the next level and while I have been testing and trying a tonne of products lately, these are the ones that have properly made it into my daily routine.
Today a huge parcel, full of Korean beauty products arrived from yesstyle.com and I was just so excited about the products inside, I couldn’t wait to unbox it and check it out with you guys.
Now to be fair, when I say Korean Beauty, I mean to say that I bought mainly from the brand Etude House. I’ve tried a few of their products in the past and loved them, plus they’re a brand you always hear such great things about! In this haul I have plenty of Etude House products to show you, as well as some products from other Korean brands that I think you’ll love.
Deep cleansing, softening and nourishing, these three words pretty much sum up what the Lush Dark Angels cleanser has to offer. Powdered charcoal helps to remove dirt and toxins clogged deep beneath the skin’s surface, gently exfoliate (with the help of some black sugar) while simultaneously removing excess oils and sebum.
The idea of this cleanser was just so exciting to me -creating brighter, younger, livelier skin from something dark. Obviously then when I spotted this at lush, I couldn’t wait to try it out. Nevertheless, charcoal is known to be a well proven effective ingredient when it comes to drawing out bacteria, poisons, chemicals and other damaging microparticles from the skin. -So it fundamentally is a magnet that removes all of the really deep-set crap from your pores. And the best part is that while the charcoal cleanses from the inside out, nourishing avocado oil in the mask helps to restore life, radiance and softness to dull skin.
Some Lovely Rose-based Products for Beautiful Skin
Hey! It’s Mew.
February is here and Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, so in light of this romantic month I thought that I’d share with you some of my favourite beauty products from one of the most romantic flowers there is… roses!
Not gonna lie, it did take me some time to get used to wearing a lot of the colours in this palette because peachy shades were just so unusual for me in the beginning. But now, having experimented with a number of shades as well as creating various colour combinations, I finally managed to come up with a really killer everyday look that I think you’re really going to love. Are you ready to get going with the tutorial? Let’s start!
