Flormar Revolution Lipstick In Burgundy Mission

I was delighted to receive a sample of the Revolution lipstick in burgundy mission, along with the lip liner to match. These were Kindly sent from RDC Communications. Flormar was launched this year in Ireland and it has proven to be a huge success and a popular choice for those who want affordability and quality. 

I tested this lipstick out over Christmas, as I am trying to be more adventurous and try out stronger colours, as I normally tend to stick with nude tones. This lipstick is a rich berry colour with blue undertones, having these undertones makes your teeth appear whiter.  
"Revolution is Flormar premium lipstick containing shea butter, cocoa, olives, a super pigment and easy 8 hr staying power".
Application Tips:
Before application ensure your lips are in good condition especially in this harsh weather. Exfoliate to remove any dry skin and apply vaseline regularly to keep them conditioned. I applied setting powder to my lips before application, this can help prolong …

My second Irish feature is dedicated to the fabulous Glitz N Pieces ,you can also read my first feature here .This online boutique was set up in 2013 by two friends Ellen and Grace aged 19 at the time (very inspiring ladies). While running their business they are also studying Entrepreneurship and Business Studies. Their boutique also sells clothing and accessories, so there is plenty of choice here.

Quote below from website:
"Once Upon a time lived two little girls  who were friends since school who had a dream of owning their own women’s boutique full of Pink Sparkle & Glamour. They lived in a land far far away in Ireland." I have purchased from Glitz N Pieces previously and I loved what I bought. The price point is fantastic,their collection is so diverse,the magpie in me was drawn to them naturally and they offer free shipping worldwide (sure what more could you want).

I just love how statement jewellry can instantly transform a look.Below are some of my favourite pi…

Statement Jewellery With My Shining Armour

I am a big lover of statement jewellery. It can add that something extra to a casual look and finish off an outfit for going out. I have a lot of statement jewellery that I have collected over the years. I take really good care of them to ensure that they last. I am mostly drawn to statement necklaces but I also have a collection of  bracelets and earrings. Statement jewellery does not cost a fortune so you can easily build up your collection.

My next three blog posts will be dedicated to some amazing Irish companies and they just happen to sell beautiful statement jewellery.It is also really important to support Irish and local businesses.I am always browsing online, but I do have to stop myself from purchasing because I have so much already. (But there is no harm in doing some window shopping,now is there ladies)

First up is my My Shining Armour setup in April 2014 by Nicki Hoyne from Kilkenny. Other than jewellery you can also purchase stationery, makeup pouches and tech items,so …
