Giorgio Armani Smart Moisture Serum

Hey Guys and Dolls,

I like using highend products as I feel if you have a good base your makeup application will be amazing and your skin will look flawless. I've never tried Armani Skincare as it has always been a bit out of my price range. Last year I was invited to one of their events and I got to try some products from their newly launched Prima range and boy is it good.
The packaging is very clean and sleek which immediately drew me towards it. The formula is also light weight and absorbs into the skin right away. This product has a pipette applicator which is very hygenic and a little bit goes a long way. My skin after using this is smooth and instantly hydrated.
For €80, this product is pretty pricey I'm not going to lie. I don't think I'd honestly have enough money on my budget to buy this usually. Having said that it is a lovely product so if you want to treat yourself go for it.


The Lo Down - Urban Decay Full Spectrum palette

Hey Guys and Dolls,

I'm not into bright vibrant shadows but I couldn't not buy the Urban Decay Full Spectrum palette. I bought it in House of Fraser Dundrum Town Centre, this palette is usually in and around €50 but I got it for €32 on offer which is such amazing value.
The Urban Decay Full Spectrum palette contains 21 shadows in all the colours of the rainbow and with different finishes from matte to shimmer this is a great palette for any makeup lover. I like how the shades are grouped into different shade groups so everything looks super organised.

The palette also contains a double ended eyeshadow brush. The brushes that come with these palettes are always amazing which is good too. The Urban Decay Full Spectrum palette is so different to any eyeshadow palettes I have in my collection even though I'm not into bright, vibrant shades I've been using  this lots since I bought it a month ago.
The top row is full of beautiful smokey shadows. This is probably my favourite group of shadows they're so pretty. They are gorgeous in the crease. The second row is definitely more vibrant and harder to use in a everyday makeup look. The last row are beautiful subtle shades which I really like.

My favourite shadows are the purple shades as I think they are so much easier to use in any eye look especially the smokey shade. 

If this palette is used right you can create looks that are perfect for everyday if you incorporate some neutral eyeshadows. I'll definitely do a post soon featuring a eyeshadow look including this palette.

The Full Spectrum palette is beautiful and certainly worth the buy especially if you can get it on offer so definitely have a look out for it.

The Lo Down - Loreal Infallible Total Coverage range and Infallible Fixing Mist

Hey Guys and Dolls,

As always Boots had a great offer on when I payed a visit on my birthday so of course I couldn't say no. 
First of there's the Infallible Total Cover Full Coverage Long Wear Foundation. I really like this stuff, I use the shade 12 Natural Rose which is the perfect shade for my skin tone. I've been using this foundation pretty much all the time since I bought it and I have nothing but good things to report back to you guys. The finish of this foundation is matte but it doesn't look or feel drying on the skin which is a good sign. It's also full coverage and long lasting so it stays put all day as well as covering all those pesky imperfections. Just be wary this foundation is very thick so I blend it in a bit with my fingers before using one of my makeup brushes. I really do like this foundation and I can see myself using it alot.

Second up is the Infallible Total Cover Full Coverage Concealer Palette and boy is this amazing, it's probably my favourite concealer palette. In this palette are five shades, a beige trio of concealers and two colour correctors and they are so unbelievably pigmented. So in a nutshell this is and amazing concealer and colour correcting palette that is really straightforward to use. This is probably my favourite product I bought on this trip to Boots it's very good I seriously think everyone should have one in their collection. I enjoy using this palette alot.

Lastly I bought Loreal's Infallible Fixing Mist. This is one of the better budget setting sprays I've tried on the market. I do really think it's good. I spray a couple of spritzes over my face and viola done. It keeps my makeup looking fresh and intact all day long. It's doesn't drown my face either which is a good sign.

All and all I really like these products and I'm glad I purchased them they were on offer as well. They were on 3 for 2 so I got all these products for in and around €20 which is a bargain.
