Happy Monday! I know it’s a bit early in the week for that but I’m feeling productive so I’m going to go with it!
Anyway, to celebrate (a little bit late) launching my blog, I’m doing a fab beauty giveaway on my Instagram page! I’ve wanted to do a giveaway for a while so after a few weeks of getting organised it’s finally live!
For the giveaway, I teamed up with Llyods Pharmacy, Market Cross Shopping Centre Kilkenny and Sally Hansen to give one lucky follower this amazing treat! I’m delighted to have them both on board and the giveaway has lots of products from Sally Hansen, Rimmel, Bourjois and Glove Your Body, which are all available at Lloyds Pharmacy in Kilkenny. It really contains everything any girl would need for a night on the town, a date or just everyday beauty! There’s also some new products in the giveaway that I haven’t even tried yet but I’m excited to test them out in the next few weeks!
- Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation
What can I say, this is my new favourite foundation and I’m so happy to have it in my giveaway. I was always a MAC warrior but when I came back from France I felt it was too heavy and I wanted a light and fresh foundation. I actually was inspired to buy the Bourjois foundation after seeing that bloggers Louise Cooney and Pippa O’Connor both use it. I can honestly say that I will never look back, for a reasonable €12.95 this foundation is absolutely amazing. It gives a light coverage, it’s smooth on the skin and it just makes your skin look so healthy! (This is probably my favourite product out of everything!)
- Bourjois Poudre de Riz de Java
I actually haven’t tried this new product yet, but I’ve heard great reviews! It boosts skin radiance and smoothes your complexion. It comes in one transparent shade and is a great product to set your makeup! I’m excited to try it!
- Bourjois Sculpt Light highlighter
This highlighter illuminates complexion and recreates areas of natural night which is always a good thing! This can also be used as a body shimmer on your legs or arms after applying tan etc. It works just as good as some of the actual body glow products!
- Rimmel Volume Shake Mascara
I also haven’t tried this mascara yet but the new product from Rimmel looks really good! The shaker system is unlike any other mascaras and it gives your lashes a beautiful clump free volume effect!
- Rimmel Radiance Shimmer Brick
This multi-toned bronzing powder is fantastic for a soft shimmer effect and a glam healthy looking glow. It’s one of those products that’s always useful to have in your makeup bag.
- Rimmel Insta Multi-tasking conceal and contour palette
This is another Rimmel product that I haven’t tested yet, but the girls in Llyods assured me it was a winner! It has three different shades- highlight, conceal and contour and again it looks like one of those handy products to have in your bag that you can use everyday.
- Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Lip
These look amazing! And Pippa also uses them, so they must be good! They’re also waterproof, touch-proof and my personal favourite, kiss-proof! I think this is definitely a product I will have to buy in a few different shades because for €7 it’s a quality product that lasts! (There are two different shades in the giveaway!)
- Glove Your Body Self-Tanning Application Dual Mit
I had never heard of this new Irish company until a few weeks ago and they kindly gave me a set, as well as one for the giveaway so I could try it out! I used it the other night just to test it myself before I wrote anything about it! I didn’t even need to put on tan but I was trying a new Sally Hansen tan too so I did it all in the one go! The set comes with three different products- the tanning glove, an exfoliating mit and a facial cleansing pad. The facial cleansing pad is very good, but it’s actually quite rough so I could only use it gently on my cheeks and forehead. The exfoliating mit is also very handy to use especially before putting on tan and the tanning application mit itself is probably my favourite product. It’s so soft and makes the tan application so easy. It’s also machine washable which is great and it actually is a quality product that will definitely last a few years.
- Sally Hansen Tan
So there are two bottles of tan in the giveaway, from none other than Sally Hansen! One is a spray-on tan glow and the other is a smooth-on tan. Again I’ve used both products and I know they are both great for an instant tan!
- Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Nail Polish
I’m not going to go into huge detail here- I think everyone is able to paint their nails, but this product makes it so much easier! It dries very fast and the the brush is a good size and allows for streak-free nails! There are 6 bottles of nail polish in the giveaway, a red, dark pink, light pink, an off white and two clear top coats!
- Sally Hansen Nail Rehab
This is another product I haven’t used but I will definitely be getting it! It’s an intense care for severely damaged nails- not that I have severely damaged nails because I never get my nails done but my nails are more on the weak side so anything helps! It fills in the ridges and conceals damage and dries to create a shield that defends against breaking and peeling.
So that’s everything! I just want to thank Lloyds Pharmacy in Market Cross shopping centre Kilkenny and Sally Hansen Ireland again for all the fab products!!
