Mac Ruby Woo Lipstick and Lip Pencil

This is gonna surprise anyone who knows me I have never owned a mac lipstick in my life I just always grabbed one in boots but two weeks ago I turned thirty and I decided to get my make up professional done in salon and a week before, I spoke to the girl who was going to do my make-up and asked her what colour she suggested straight away she said mac ruby woo lipstick and lip pencil.

image

So I headed into Brown Thomas which is an Irish version of hervey Nichole’s but I think brown Thomas would prefer to be called Irish harrods but that’s really never gonna happen not gonna lie I’m not a big fan of Brown Thomas I’m not sure why.

I managed to pick up the lipstick €20 and lip pencil €17 with out to much hassle which was surprising as the place was so busy.

image

Of course I did wear it before my party for a night out and I loved the colour it’s the perfect red but that night I was disappointed by the staying power now I did have food and drink so I’m not sure what I was expecting.

image

So the night of party the girl who done my make-up put layers and layers on which I have since done and it has now got the staying power I wanted from a lipstick  I have to say I will be buying more mac.

P.S Love Lip Liner Pencil

This is one of the first products I picked up from P.S Love range from Primark/Penneys and it’s lip liner pencil I can’t seem to find the name of the colour on it but it’s 06 if that’s any help and it’s priced at €1.50.

image

First up packaging and price it looks perfect to me the way a lip pencil should look like that it’s black and the price is amazing €1.50 you can’t moan about that.

So this is a brown colour which would be something I would go for in a lipstick and that’s why I went  straight for this colour. I knew I could wear it in the day and night which is what I wanted it goes on easy their is no dragging it over my lips it’s seems to last but I am can be someone who forgets to top my lips but haven’t said that I wore this out the other week and it really seemed to last a good part of the day for €1.50 this will be something I will be buying again. As far as I know their is only three colours in this range but I could be wrong i have also picked up it in pink lip liner but haven’t tried it yet but will let you know when I do.

Wet N Wild Megaslicks Balm Stain Review

I have been dying to try out Wet N Wild make up but I just kept forgeting to keep an eye out for it and Friday I went into Penneys/Primark and went straight to the makeup section and picked out no 127 A stiff pink priced at €3.99.

image

First things first the packaging is great for this price it really looks a lot more expensive I am still shocked by the price.

image

This is a bright pink colour which I love it’s brighter than I was expecting but I was very happy about this and it also promises to moisture your lips and I didn’t need to top it up for about three hours.

imageimage

I was very impressed with this product and will be picking up some more next time I’m in Penneys/Primark.

I have been really looking forward to trying out NYC make up and I was in the Pavilion in Swords on Wednesday and I remembered that http://www.mccabespharmacy.com stocked NYC makeup now I really didn’t need anything but when I seen nolita neutral 010 crayon and I had to have it it’s kind of nude colour with a shimmer true it and it’s €3.49.

image

image

As soon as I got out to the car I put it straight on and I was in love it’s like I have been looking for this colour for ever and just found it and I have been wearing it for the last three days it is a day colour but I love wearing a nude lip on a night out oh and  sorry about the pic but I have a horrible spot on my chin as you can see 😂.

Collection Lip Definer

So I was in boots last week looking around the make up section and I decided to pick up a pink lip liner/definer I haven’t used a lip liner in years but decided to give it another try I decided to go for collection lip definer 4 pink priced at €3.69 which I am not going to lie the price was the selling point as I wasn’t sure if I would use it or really wear it.

image

 

image

am not going to lie I wouldn’t wear this during the day but for a night out this is perfect it did take me a couple of try’s to get right but I think I kinda of mastered it lasted the night again I did spent a lot of the night topping up lipgloss because I hate when I see no no lipstick or gloss and these clown lines drawn on nothing as bad.

image

I am not good at buying make up on line the colours look different I better at going in and seeing the colours again elf is very cheap and I did like some of the products  but if I seen most of these in a shop I wouldn’t buy them the only product so far I would buy again is the conditioning lip balm I really like this product also I read over what I wrote and realised I said its fine, ok  and I don’t mind it when I buy make up I want to be using amazing brilliant love it and really couldn’t with most of these products.
