Stila - Aer Lingus





By now you know that I am Stila's Number 1 fan and am totally Stila Obsessed.  I have some exciting Stila news for you.... Stila will be available to buy on Aer Lingus flights.   Ahhh just think your coming home from your holidays, your a bit sad, you sit on the plane only to find you can buy STILA.  

Stila will be selling two of their products on Aer Lingus flights (those Duty Free Carts can only carry so much) and I happen to think they have picked two excellent products.  First up is the Stila In the Light (read my review here) - this is one of Stila's new classics.   In the Light is a beautiful selection of 10 eye shadows which are soft, buttery and extremely pigmented along with a smudge stick.  The eye shadows offer plenty of colour combinations while also offering classic tones, the palette comes with a look book in case you need inspiration.  I love smudge sticks - I use one on my waterline every day - they are easy to use and soft without being too soft.  In the Light is a great classic palette, I might be seduced by new purchases but In the Light is a palette I ALWAYS return to.  

The second product is one of Stila's best selling and award winning products the Convertible Color (I have reviews here and here), If I had to choose a favourite Stila product it would be Convertible Colours.  This easy to use blush and lip colour comes in adorable packaging (the packaging is the same shade as the product making it easy to pick out of your makeup bag but also makes it the cutest packaging).  They are very easy to use, you can apply using your finger to both your cheeks and your lips and although Aer Lingus will only be selling the shade Gerbera once you try them you will be joining me in my Convertible Color addiction and have to buy all the shades (you can purchase them from www.stila.co.uk - I recently picked up my last shade which I will be sharing with you soon). 


So when are we going on holidays?

Smashbox - Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and Smashbox have released a Limited Edition, cute as a button Be Legendary LipGloss.  The shimmery pink shade is called Promise* and it costs €19.00 - €5.00 of the sales will be donated to the Cancer Clinical Research Trust at St Vincents Hospital Dublin.  

This beautifully pretty shade will be flattering on everybody, it will make us feel good and look good.  Basically its the perfect excuse to buy a pretty lip gloss.





As you can see the gloss is sheer with a delicate pink shimmer going through.  Its perfect to wear alone on the lips or over a lipstick.  The Be Legendary Lip Gloss formula feels amazing on the lips, not sticky or gritty, it feels smooth and nourishing on the lips.



Alone on the lips Promise looks pretty and makes lips look just a little bit pouty, the gloss and shimmer make the lips look fuller :)  Alone the lip gloss is really flattering.



I have been wearing it as you can see below over Charlotte Tilbury's Bitch Perfect.  I am not really used to a nude shade and I find that Promise's tiny shimmer makes the lips look a bit more vibrant and alive.

I think that Smashbox Be Legendary Lip Gloss in Promise is a great product to buy during Breast Cancer Awareness month, a good percentage of the sales of the product (€5.00) is going directly to charity and the product itself is really pretty. Pin It

#CLOUD10PAINTITPINK - Breast Cancer Awareness (a bit of The Balm)

Cloud 10 Beauty....Have I told you lately that I Love you?  Cloud 10 Beauty is my favourite online beauty shop, they have brought us some pretty amazing brands (and the list of brands keeps growing).  Cloud 10 have recently revamped their site and I cant wait for some of the new products that they have launching soon.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and Cloud 10 Beauty are donating €1.00 from every order to the Irish Cancer Society.  We can feel good about ourselves and look good at the same time - everybody is a winner-.  No only can you feel good about your purchase it also comes in a pretty pink box.  This is absolutely wonderful of Cloud 10 and I feel its our duty to make a purchase during October.

If you are in need of some purchase inspiration I am loving the brand The Balm which Cloud 10 stock.  I am a huge fan of their highlighters which come in the cutest packaging.  I am a little addicted to highlighters at the moment.  I know the current beauty trend is the 90ies lip (anybody around for the actual 90ies shudders every time we hear this) but I am obsessed with the J-Lo Glow (yep even though its not summer I am still obsessed).  The Balms packaging is kinda adorable especially their range of highlighters which come in compacts.  Cindy-Lou Manizer* is a rose gold high lighter and Mary Lou Manizer is a traditional champagne highlighter.  These work wonderfully on the eyes as well as to highlight the face.    

How pretty is Mary-Lou? The Balm products are soft and buttery but also extremely pigmented. These Highlighters are €19.00 and will last a life time.
Since I am a bit of a high lighter junkie I had purchased Becca's Shimmering Skin Perfector in Rose Gold.  This bad boy costs £30.00 (from SpaceNK) and the colour is EXACTLY the same as The Balm.  I prefer the effect that the Balm's Mary Lou leaves on the skin.  To the left is Becca and to the right is The Balm Cindy Lou, as you will see from the swatches below they are exactly the same. 




I always feel a bit smug when I have highlighter on my skin.

So what will you be buying from Cloud 10 Beauty this October. Pin It

Clinique Long Last Soft Matte Lipstick


When I first saw this lippy on Andreea (Yourbeauty) I knew it had to be mine.  Clinique Long Last Soft Matte Lipstick in Matte Magenta is a very me shade.  Normally I am not a fan of Matte Lipsticks, I have dry lips at the best of times and matte formulas tend to be drying but Clinique Soft Matte Lipstick are part of the new wave of matte lipsticks hitting the market.  These leave the lips with a gentle matte effect without the drying Sahara effect of other matte lipsticks.
This is a soft and comfortable lipstick to wear and the colour is simply stunning (I think you will agree a very me shade).  I love the Clinique lipstick packaging the sleek metal bullet is sleek and stylish.
