Benefit's B.Right Starter Kit At Debenhams

In Debenhams at the moment if you are a Beauty Club cardholder you can receive a free complimentary 'face date' with Benefit to try out their new skincare range called B.Right. When you are there you will also pick up a free B.Right starter kit. I picked up mine today and I have to say I love it.

The starter kit contains 3 deluxe size samples of three products from this range. The products are as follows:
  • Triple Performing Facial Emulsion SPF 15 (8.9ml/0.3 US fl.oz) -The emulsion is said to hydrate,protect and comfort the skin with it's light-weight,oil free formula. It also has a ultra moisturising tri-radiance complex which helps keep water on the skin's surface.
  • Foamingly Clean Facial Wash (8.9g Net wt.0.3 oz.) -This wash is said to cleanse the skin with a gentle lather and also removes make up efficiently
  • Potent! Eye Cream(3.0g Net.wt0.1oz) - The eye cream smooths fine lines and fades dark circles which helps make eyes appear brighter.
I highly recommend getting this kit if you are a Debenhams Beauty Cardholder as the products are deluxe samples which are worth €12. I also feel it's good to have if you are interested in these products as you can try them out for a week before you make your decision.


Sarah Burton Of Alexander McQueen designs Kate Middleton's Wedding Dress

After months of speculation Kate Middleton's wedding dress has been revealed. The 29 year old's dress was designed by Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen. The dress which was made ivory/white satin gazar had a lace bodice and sleeves. The creation was finished off with a tiara and a elegant train. The dress was designed to resemble an open flower.

I think the vintage style dress with modern elements was beautiful and simple but so very elegant. Her tiara was Cartier and was personally lent to her by the Queen for the occasion.

Her bridesmaid on the day her sister,Pippa Middleton also wore a McQueen gown. Kate's dress is already being compared to Princess Grace of Monaco's iconic dress as it has a similar design.

Kate's evening gown was also created by Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen. The second outfit for the day was a strapless white satin gazar gown which had diamante embroidered detail on the waist. She opted to cover the dress with a white angora bolero

All in all, I think Kate's dress choices were amazing and well worth the wait.

Mini Make Up Haul

I just went shopping today so I just thought I'd mention some of the products I purchased, cause some of the products I have used before and some I haven't so maybe I'll do a review in a few days when I've tried out the products.

So, on to the haul, the first product I picked up was Revlon Colorburst Lip Gloss in 004 Pink Ice. I am real fan of light pink glosses in general and I've never tried Revlons'.I thought I'd give their new offering a try as it is one of there new range of lipglosses and I liked the packaging as the lid looks like patent leather and looks different to any brand I've seen before. The lipgloss is described as a weightless gloss makes lips pop with 5times more shine than patent leather hence the packaging. I shall definitely do a review on this product just to let you know how I found it.

The next product I picked up was the new No7 Extreme Length Sensitive Mascara.I've always been a big fan of N07 products I live by there Essential Moisture Night Cream as I always feel like my face is so refreshed and hydrated the next morning and I've used various mascaras and
lipglosses(which are always really good).

Back to the product, this mascara is a sensitive version of a Extreme Length, which have been made for people with sensitive eyes and is recommended for contact lens user. The mascara is enriched with Almond and Jojoba oils and helps prevent irritation. I thought I'd try this out as my eyes do tend to water sometimes even due to weather and because i highly rate No7 products and I always like to give their new products a go.

At this time in Boots also when you buy No7 Extreme Length Sensitive Mascara you get a So Simple Eye Duo free. The eyeshadows are two neutral colours beige and cream come in a silver compact which is super cute and is small so is perfect for your handbag.

And last but not least I bought a Gosh Cosmetics Giant Sun Powder in shade 001 which I've bought before I love to use it on my cheeks for contouring as it's just the right shade. I always go back to cause its a really good size bronzer and lasts for so long.

So I hope you found something in this mini haul that you might try out.

All-Made-Up-21 Product Recommendation- Soap and Glory's The Breakfast Scrub

Hey everyone,

This is the first official All-Made-Up-21 product recommendation, the product I am recommending you all to try is Soap and Glory's The Breakfast Scrub.

This product is one of the newest additions to the brand,and I've enjoyed using it so much that I'm already on my second tub!:O The Soap and Glory packaging is really cute and girly,another reason why I love there brand.

The Breakfast Scrub is described as a oat,Shea butter & sugar body smoother, it contains organic cupuacu bio scrubs, bananas, almond & honey extracts with a great maple fragrance. The maple scent of this scrub is amazing as it the minute you open the tub you can smell this lovely scent,some people have described it as smelling like honey porridge (yum).The good thing I've found as well is the scent itself is subtle and not overpowering. I love the scrub itself as my skin is always left feeling so smooth and its not harse on my skin either.

The best way I would recommend to use this scrub is to dampen the areas where your going to use the product,grab a handful of the product, rub between your hands and apply in small circular motions onto skin.After showering,you will be left with a lovely scent which will linger on your skin and your skin will also feel silky smooth.

You can find Soap and Glory products in Boots,Harvey Nichols and

I hope you enjoyed my first official All-Made-Up-21 product recommendation and I hope you enjoy using this product as much I have!

Harajuku Lovers Fragance-G Of The Sea Review

I recently bought this latest addition to the Harajuku Lovers Fragrance Collection when I was out shopping. I was totally surprised to see it in my local store as I had seen it on 2 weeks previously and it was exclusive to Sephora (unfortunately we don't have one of them in Dublin) so I had to buy it.

The first things that hit me with this product before I even opened it, was the box design and the shape of the bottle. It has to be the most cutest bottle I have seen in a long time its a beautiful mermaid bottle which is totally different to previous Harajuku Lovers perfumes and the box is amazing too, as its designed to look like the sea and it's opened at the front so your bottle fits perfectly into to it. I recommend keeping the box as it looks so cute on a desk.

Now to the scent, this perfume is described as having a citrusy woody-floral scent, which smells so good like everytime I spray it I love it even more. I think its one of those scents that everyone would love as it smooth and not to overpowering as some scents are.

I would recommend this product to anyone who is a fan of Harajuku Lovers Fragrance Collection as it is limited edition and it is a must in any fragrance collection even for the bottle as even when you finish using the perfume would look so nice in your perfume tray.

Lush Cosmetics supports Japan with new Japanese Aid Soap

All of us that have been watching the news lately have seen the tragedy that occurred in Japan.

Lush Cosmetics have recently launched there new charity soap "Japanese Aid" which they are selling to raise funds for charity,Peace Boat.

Peace Boat is made up of volunteers who are cooking hot meals, transporting aid goods and helping the people living in worst hit regions in any way they can.

Lush have launched this limited edition soap to raise much needed funds for the charity with all proceeds from every purchase of "Japanese Aid" going directly to the charity.

The soap itself is designed like a Japanese flag, it has a lovely coconut fragrance which is similar to previously discontinued soap "I Should Coco". I found this soap amazing as the smell stays on your skin even after you shower.

I recently bought this soap in my local Lush and the staff were so appreciative. It cost €5 and i was happy leaving the shop as I knew I was playing my part in helping the people of Japan.The soap is still available to buy instore or online at

Please show your support everything counts.


New Product Alert: Simple Kind To Eyes-Eye Make-Up Remover Pen

I was recently in my local Boots store where I go to stock up on my favourite drugstore brands monthly when I was walking down the aisle and I came across this little gem. Simple has always been one of my go to brands as I have sensitive skin and there range is amazing it consists of Cleansers, Toners, Moisturisers and lots more.

I always find there products very light on my skin, I particularly love their eye make up remover and make up wipes. So when I saw their new product I jumped at the chance to try it out. I found this product really useful as it has a precision felt tip which is good for hard to reach areas.

I really liked the pen as it is easy to pop in your bag on the go for quick fixes during the day,it's also good for when you finish your make up and you know notice fall out as it easily removes it.
The only downside of this product is that i noticed that it is hard to keep clean, even though the product was cleaned after every use it still remains a bit stained.
I paid €6.29 for this product which i think is a fairly reasonable price as it has a shelf life of 3 months and is really good for a girl on-the-go.
