Revolution Conceal and Define Foundation Review

One brand that I have always been a strong supporter of is Revolution. Their products are so affordable and genuinely so amazing in terms of pigmentation and longevity! So when they released the Conceal and Define Foundation I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it and try it out!

Any of you guys that are familiar with Revolution products will recognise that the Conceal and Define Foundation looks just like a bigger version of the Conceal and Define Concealer, which really I guess you could say it is! I do like the packaging on this foundation, its sleek and I love the purple too!

What’s different about this foundation is the applicator, instead of the usual more popular pump, there is a doe applicator. In the past, I have tried one or two foundations that have used the doe applicator rather than a pump and I have found that I disliked the doe applicator. However, in this foundation I absolutely adore it! It helps me to not waste foundation, (in that when using a pump foundation I tend to get a little bit trigger happy and end up with an overflow of foundation). I also think that it helps when using this kind of applicator the foundation is a light consistency, therefore it agrees more with this kind of application.

The shade that I purchased was F3, its a great match for my skin because I have got extremely pale skin! For me, when I buy a foundation, the main things that I am looking for are longevity and coverage. Personally, I love a high coverage foundation, of course it differs from person to person what they prefer! Personally, I do find this to be quite high coverage and it is buildable too. And to top it all off it definitely stands the test of time! I’ve often put it on in the morning to go to work and by the end of the day it still looks just as fresh as when I’ve first applied it!

So all in all, I would 100% recommend this foundation! At a price point of €16 for a Revolution product it could be considered slightly on the pricey side, however it is certainly worth the money!

A New Beginning

43557729_488072545028513_642656510551261184_n

It’s safe to say that it’s been a while. I’ve had the busiest few months but in the best way possible!

I have finished my undergraduate degree, which was undoubtedly the quickest three years of my life, and I will be graduating in two weeks time with a 2.1 degree in Communication Studies from Dublin City University. It felt so weird to not be meeting back up with my course in September time because it had become such a familiar routine to me! I will admit that I did have certain plans for this year which didn’t quite come to fruition, however now I have decided to take a gap year and take some time to figure out what it is that I want to do. So I’m continuing to work part time for the year, and taking the time to find the career path that I want to take.

I’m also learning to drive, which is something that is taking up a lot of my focus at the moment! I bought a car in August, and I have been taking driving lessons. It’s such a daunting experience but one that I am absolutely loving, and it is one of those things that once you learn you never forget!

So now that I finally have some free time, I’ve made the decision to come back to blogging. I first started my blog in November 2014 which is nearly four years ago now. But I have always been hugely inconsistent with posting on here, I now want to give my blog the attention that it deserves. One of my favourite things I have ever done on my blog was Blogmas and I loved every minute of making them posts. So I have decided to give blogging more of my attention and create content that I think will be interesting and fun to make!

As of right now, I am aiming to put out 2 posts a week, some weeks it could be more and some weeks it may only be 1 post. But the aim is for two posts a week and I feel that is a good place for me to start.

So thank you so much for reading!

Starting Final Semester of Uni

Hello lovelies! For today’s post I thought I would talk about my final semester of uni and my plans for after these 12 weeks are over. So I’m in week 3 now of my last semester at uni, and I’m studying a media related degree. I’ve just started my last semester and honestly I’m not quite sure where the time has gone. It seems like only yesterday that I had my first day up at uni, getting lost trying to find the bus stop and navigating the university’s online system. And now, three years on I know the place like the back of my hand.

I’ve thought long and hard about what I want to do when I’m finished the course, when I started the programme I was sure that I wanted to work in television production. But over the last three years I’ve deviated further and further away from that career path. I thought that I would adore the practical subjects of my degree, whereas in reality it was the theory based modules that interested me far more. So the dream of working in television production, which is still something that interests me became less of the path I was going to follow due to my dislike of some of the practical modules and instead I’ve been left with many options to consider.

All in all there are many routes that I can take after this degree is over. I can go on and continue my study with a postgraduate degree, I can apply for a graduate job or to get accepted onto a graduate program. There is one graduate program specifically that I would absolutely love to apply to when it opens for applications. I could also take a gap year next year because I am only twenty one and then decide what I want to do. The problem is, I’m not a very decisive person when it comes to things like this. But for now, the focus remains doing well in my degree and all other decisions can come after. I really do believe that if its meant to be it will happen!

Thank you so much for reading,

L’Oréal Infallible Fixing Mist Review 

Hello Lovelies, I hope your all doing well and having a good weekend! For today’s post I’m going to be doing a review of the L’Oréal Infallible Fixing Mist!

So I mentioned in a previous post about how I had completely fallen in love with the Barry M fixing mist and so when I seen the L’Oréal fixing mist in Boots I thought I just had to try it! At a price point of €12 it wasn’t as cheap as the Barry M fixing mist but I was excited to give it a go!

My initial reaction to the fixing mist was a positive one, it set my makeup so well and it didn’t budge throughout the day which is of course perfect for a fixing mist! However after my first few uses of it I suddenly found that when I was spraying the mist I was getting white splodges and dots across my makeup which would not come off! I’m really not sure why that is, especially because I’ve  followed the instructions of how to spray the mist correctly! I’m really not sure where I’m going wrong with it because when I initially used it I absolutely loved it!

If I can figure out where I’m going wrong with it, it’s a product that I would definitely add to my everyday makeup routine!

Have any of you guys tried this fixing mist? If you have what are your thoughts?

Final Year of University: Life Update

Well hello lovelies! It’s been quite a while! I’ve taken rather an extended break from blogging over the summer because honestly I felt really dissatisfied with my blog. I often found that I wasn’t writing about the things that I wanted to because I felt like people wouldn’t want to read them. Of course I love favourites posts and makeup reviews they are some of my absolute favourite blog posts to read, but I also love writing lifestyle posts too and I would always think that people wouldn’t want to read them! But after taking some time away from my blog and really missing it, I’ve decided to start posting again and I’m honestly really excited to be back!

So I thought for my first post back that I would do a bit of a life update! This year is my final year at university and so far it has been such a roller coaster! I’m in a media related course and whilst the workload has always been difficult it has also always been manageable. However this year the workload has been so intense this year so far! And honestly what adds to that stress is one of my ten credit modules which I really dislike has an extremely intense workload! I think I’m managing to get on top of things now, but the first few weeks of third year have been very tough!

I’m also still working part time during the week and the weekends so finding that balance between work and such an intense workload has been a little bit trial and error!

Thank you so much for reading guys! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

L’Oréal True Match Foundation Review

Hello Lovelies! I hope your all doing well and having a nice week! I thought that today I would do a review of the L’Oréal True Match Foundation because this has become my holy grail foundation.

20251236_1741120835901577_214927881_o

So the shade that I use is the 1.R/1.C Rose Ivory, I’m not sure if this is the lightest shade that they do, but it’s pretty light because I have extremely pale skin. I had seen so many people raving about this foundation online, and honestly I can definitely understand why!

I’ve been buffing out the foundation with the Blank Canvas F20 brush (which also I must add is an amazing brush!). The foundation blends like a dream, and it gives me the level of coverage that I’ve been searching for. I would personally describe the coverage as medium, it’s not super heavy on the skin is something which I really love about it. It does feel lightweight on my skin whilst still giving me a great level of coverage.

Another reason that I have completely fallen in love with this foundation is its longevity. For me, when I buy a new foundation its longevity is something that is so so important because there’s nothing more annoying than when your in work for the day and your makeup has worn off your face. But this foundation lasts all day! Even through being at work for nine hours it’s still in a good condition.

I’m already on my second bottle of this foundation because no other foundation seems to be living up to it at the minute! And at around €15 the price is very good for what your getting in terms of the quality of the product. Along with this in Boots or even in Tesco (if your local Tesco sells makeup) a lot of the time L’Oréal foundations are on offer for 3 for 2 or something similar!

Have you tried this foundation? If you have what were your thoughts?

Thank you so much for reading!

June Favourites

Hello Lovelies! It feels like its been ages since I’ve done a favourites post, the days are flying by and all of the months seem to be blending into one! But I have a few products that I have been using every day for the month of June and that I have been absolutely loving! So my first favourite for the month of June is the L’Oréal True Match Foundation, this is a foundation that I had heard so many people talking about and I wanted to try it for ages but whenever I saw it in Boots or any other pharmacy they never seemed to have the lighter shades in stock. But one day luckily I found my shade which is the lightest shade and I haven’t looked back ever since! I can see why this gets so many positive reviews because it has honestly become my favourite foundation! It stays on all day and I love the coverage that it gives! In fact I’ve loved it so much that I’ve just purchased my second bottle of this foundation! I also love pairing it with the L’Oréal Infallible Mattifying Base Primer. I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned this primer before but it’s a really great primer! It makes your face tacky and smooths over your pores which makes the foundation sit so much better on your face.

I have also been loving the L’Oréal Miss Baby Roll Mega Volume Mascara lately, it’s been the only mascara that I’ve used for the last two months. I just love the volume and separation that it gives to my lashes!

The Penneys PS Highlighter has become my go to highlighter because of its pigmentation and durability. Highlighters weren’t something that I was massively into but after using this highlighter I’ve gotten really into them! And this Penneys highlighter which is super cheap and affordable is a great go to if your on a budget!

And my last favourite for the month of June is the Seventeen Gel Colour Nail Polish, in the shade Mint Cooler. I am such a huge fan of mint nail varnish, I just think mint green is such a pretty colour and it’s actually one of my favourites!

So that’s it for my June Favourites guys! What were your favourites for the month?

Thank you so much for reading!
