Real Techniques On The Go Glow Brush Set || MagpieMagpie Blog

08/09/2019

Hi Lovelies. Today we are back to make-up, but with a twist, brushes, Real Techniques On The Go Glow Brush Set to be exact. Brushes are something I have a small bit of an obsession with. I don’t have a huge collection, although I think I can assume it’s bigger than some. As you guys know I wear a full face day in day out. So there’s usually a few top up bits in my bag. I’ve had some random brushes over the years and loved them, but when I spotted this new kit from Real Techniques in Boots and I couldn’t resist.

Hi Lovelies. I hope you guys are all fabulous. Let’s chat about OTOSTICK. If you’ve been following since the beginning, you’ll know I’d LOVE to get my ears pinned back (and my nose done but that another story). I have no problem with cosmetic surgery, my feeling is that it’s your body you can do as you please. The only reason I haven’t gotten them pinned back are low funds, and my crippling fear of needles and Doctors.

OTOSTICK is a great alternative for those who want to try out the whole ear pinning if they aren’t sure. Or who don’t have the funds. They are quick, easy and last. Once you get the hang of it that is! You’ll probably end up going through two boxes before you get the hang of it. Practice makes perfect!

I tend to apply them after I’ve had a shower and washed my hair. I scrub the area clean, get all of my hair out of the way, and then clean the area again with antiseptic. Always make sure the area is dry before application. Before you  remove the protective cover, try playing around with it. See where you think might be best to apply it.

L’Oreal Infaillible 24H Fresh Wear Foundation || MagpieMagpie Blog

23/06/2019

Hi Lovlies,

How are we all? I know you haven’t heard from me in a while on here, but hopefully you’ve been stalking me on instagram. I have also been trying to get better at Facebook… thats not going great ha ha. 

It’s been a hot minute (as the cool kids say) since I’ve done a good old fashioned foundation review.

It’s been a tricky subject for me as being on the roaccutane has really changed my skin.

When I first started using the L’Oreal Infaillible 24H Fresh Wear Foundation my skin was blemish riddled and very oily. I hadn’t heard any of the hype I was just trying so hard to find a whiter than white colour match because I knew tan wouldn’t be an option for me in the coming months.

If you guys can believe it, NO. 15 Porcelaine is the perfect match shade for me. I know WTF right.

Collins’ Beach Cafe And Seaweed Baths

Hi Lovelies,

Well I can tell you I’m glad that couple of weeks is over, and that this one is nearly over!! Sorry I missed you guys last week, and this Sunday, but I just couldn’t. It was just a couple of those weeks, ye know! 

I think I’ve finally gotten back in the swing of Jersey life, well as much as someone like me can, and I’m ready to get back to blogging! 

While I was home I had the pleasure of visiting the seaweed baths in Ballybunion. They are opens from the end of May till the mid September.  My mother is an avid visiter in the summer so I was quite excited.

Soap & Glory Thick & Fast HD Mascara High Definition Collagen Coat || MagpieMagpie Blog

03/10/2018

I’ve been on the hunt for a new drugstore mascara, of course, didn’t know where to start. At the time it was just after Christmas and there were a few Christmas sets on sale. I’d been thinking of trying a few things from Soap & Glory so when I saw the set was on sale and there was a mascara and an eyeliner in it I was sold!

I ended up not trying the mascara for a few months because I’ve been trying to use up a product before moving onto the next. I’m still going strong with this! I hadn’t heard anything about the Soap & Glory mascara so didn’t know what to expect. As it was a gift set I couldn’t actually see what the wand would be like or the eyeliner, which was funny coz I can be SUPER fuzzy about them. I realise now I could have just gone down to the stand.
