Sleek Blush By 3- Sweet Cheeks

Hey everyone,

While I was in London last month I thought I would take the opportunity to check out Sleek's latest Candy Collection.

The Sweet Cheeks blush trio caught my eye immediately as I thought the other items wouldn't be as wearable for me. This trio is unlike any of the other Blush By 3 palettes as it features a cream blush, which is a first from Sleek. All of the colours are wearable and would suit all skintones.

Cupcake- A deep fuchsia pink cream blush.
Dolly Mix- A beautiful lilac blush with a matte finish.
Candy Floss- A bright candy pink with a shimmery finish.
As with other Sleek products, the pigmentation definitely doesn't disappoint. A little goes a long way with these blushes, the packaging is also pretty sturdy and includes a full sized mirror.
Overall, I would highly rate this little trio from Sleek!

This palette retails for €13 and is available from Selected Superdrug stores or from the Sleek website.

Have you tried anything from the Candy Collection?

London IMATS 2013 | My Experience

Hey everyone,

So as I mentioned in my last post, I was lucky enough to attend IMATS in London last month. I headed to the Olympia in Kensington on the Saturday with my mam (she managed to get in for free!).

When I arrived the hall was packed. I headed to the Makeup Forever stand first, which was absolutely jammed! Queues were awful, with waiting times of about 30 minutes. Not to mention there was about 5 people working there. I did manage to pick up one of their aqua cream shadows, an aqua cream liner, a aqua lip liner and a Dany pouch for brushes, all of which were very reasonable priced.

Next I headed to the crown brush stand, which was packed when I first arrived, so I headed back when the crowds cleared around 1pm. 

I also headed to the Stargazer stand where I picked up a box of pink hair dye.

One of my favourite purchases came from Hakuhodo, where I picked up a soft powder brush, which I adore!

The last stand I headed to was Royal and Langnickel, where I picked up two brushes. I picked up a short handled powder brush and a flat top powder brush. Both of which came in at under a tenner!

I managed to spot Fleur De Force, Missglamorazzi and Talk Becky Talk, and was raging I didn't head over to say hi. There were swarms of people taking pictures with them.

Despite the crowds and queues, I would love to head back to IMATS next year, I had a fantastic day.

Here are the pictures I took on the day.

Update- Where I've been?

Hey everyone,

Long time no speak. I'd like to apologise for my absence.
 The last month has had its highs and lows for me. 

I ended a very turbulent, long-term relationship. I won't bore you with the details.

 June still definitely had its highs. I was lucky enough to attend the Irish Beauty Bloggers meetup in Dublin organised by the lovely Katie from 'What Katie Healy Did' (blog post coming soon!). 
Also in June, I had the opportunity to work at Bon Jovi in Slane, which was incredible!
I was also very lucky to be able to attend IMATS in London. So expect a blog post with loooads of pictures from my trip.
Another big change I made in June was to dye my hair pink. It's perfect for Summer! Please excuse my 'Grumpy Cat-esque' expression and the wild brows!

You may have also notice my little blog makeover, this was by the lovely Lauren from 'Makeup By Lauren Marie'.

I'm happy to be back posting, and thank you all for reading <3
