Artistry Signature Colour Lipstick* | First Impressions

Wednesday, 18 February 2015

Recently I was sent the Artistry signature colour lipstick in the shade 'coral sunrise'. The outer cardboard packaging is somewhat average and does not co-ordinate at all with the actual packaging of the lipstick. Thankfully the inside of the box has instructions on how to open the tube. You have to twist it a certain way, but the packaging looks and feels very expensive and luxurious. I had it around my mam and she actually commented on how pretty the packaging is. The colour is not something I would wear everyday personally as I tend to wear more berry colours. It is going to be very pretty for spring/summer. These retail for around the €25 mark. I would love to try more of these in different colours because even though they are quite pricy they are great quality. 

*This was sent to me for my consideration however i'm a not bullish*t sort of person so you know this is as honest as it gets*

Excuse how unfocused this is, I didn't realise until afterwards
Last weekend I took a trip to Blanchardstown Shopping centre, I found so many sales and offers it would have been a shame not to of taken advantage. One of my favourite places in the whole centre is Bradleys Pharmacy. They have a great selection of makeup including NYX, which I find very hard to get a hold of. They had an amazing sale when I went and I got a third off the real techniques Core Collection set, which I am insanely delighted with. They were supposed to be €28.99 but I got them for €19.42. As always, I wondered into boots and took a look at the makeup. I went and looked at the Aveeno range. Aveeno is something I adore because its once of the few brands I can use that won't send my skin into meltdown mode. I got this skin relief moisturiser for around €3.50, which is a steal! Finally I went to Pennys (primiark). I found these shoes which I will have to break it but are totally fab. For €7 you can't really complain can you? 

Review : Sleek Brow Kit

Saturday, 7 February 2015

If you saw my last post, you'll see that I bought this not too long ago. Its the second lights shade in the range, which I think is a bit of a let down. The only lighter shade than this is one for blonde brows which is great but this was actually a tiny bit dark for me. I would have liked maybe half a shade lighter. 

As the packaging, its very standard Sleek packaging. The only thing I find annoying is the tiny little brushes & tweezers. They're basically unusable because they are so small. 

When I first used the used the wax, it took some getting used to because i'm so used to using powders. You need to have a very light hand when applying this or it can look very very dodgy. Once I had done the wax I set it with the powder which I actually quite liked. 

Is this going to dramatically change the way I do my brows? definitely not. Do I hate it? no. Its just not spectacular. I would say its worth checking out if you're on the market for some budget brow stuff. If you're interested in my brow routine its here
