Penneys Buys

Image result for penneys

So as per usual I went into Penneys just to have a look. Fast forward 30 minutes later and I come out with half the shop. Sure we can relate to that, honestly it is like a black hole in there.

So I picked up some key pieces for AW and I wanted to share them with you. This Coat is just fabulous on. It may not look much on the hanger but trust me try it on. I cannot wear heavy jackets so this is perfect for me as it is light.  This coat is fitted and is very flattering on and it looks much more expensive than it costs. Will be great for casual and dressy wear. It was a steal at €35

So fringing is everywhere. It it was only a matter of time before Penneys had the fringe boots in store. I was very lucky to get the last size 5 today. Aren't they just fab and will be perfect to wear with skinny jeans and dresses for a casual day look. These are €23.

I also picked up this fabulous fringed bag (I was very excited when I spotted this). I had my eye on a a very similar one in H&M and it was €30. This is just €15 and it also comes in a brown. The quality is so good, it is also right on trend and it will be perfect to use during the day.

I also got this cute box for €6. It will be perfect for my dresser to put my jewellry or makeup in.  

Lastly I picked up this contour brush and  NYC cheek glow in riverside rose. I think that this blush was featured on Xpose as a good buy. I have heard good things about the contour brush too. Even if it turns out not be good, it was only €2 so not a lot of money wasted there. 

All of these were bought in the Pavillions store in Swords.

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 …

Finally Contouring is getting the push

Anyone else as happy as me to see that contouring is not as popular in the makeup world. I personally could never get used to it. I think it looks amazing in photographers or on a night out when done right. If you prefer a more heavy look. I believe strobing has been around before it was just called highlighting then. So do not be confused!!!

For me I prefer a more natural look when it comes to makeup. The whole idea with strobing is that you can see the skin and it is not heavily covered up. 
I have been using the Mac Strobe Cream for a few months now. You can also strobe with powder.

What I like about Mac Strobe?

It makes the skin look radiant,fresh and healthy (for tired Mammies like me it's a must) It's easily applied. It's a no fuss product, there is no messing with it. It can be worn alone or added after foundation is applied. With some blush you are good to go.
