Smashbox Lighting Theory Palette Review

September 13, 2017 lisanaughtonmua 0

I picked up this palette when I was in Boots Pharmacy, Athlone, in July 2016. I have been playing with this palette for over a year now & finally getting around to doing a review.

I love the holographic look & the way it opens up like a book. You can also detatch the inserts, which is ideal if someone’s only interested in bringing one side with them rather than the whole palette. The palette contains:

16 Photo Op Eyeshadow 4 Cream Color Corrector 3  Contouring cream 3  Cream highlighter 4  Get the look insert 3  Blush *apologies for the usage shown, I didn’t take a picture when I purchased a year ago. LEFT SIDE So on the left side, it consists of cream products; colour correctors, contour, highlight & shimmer highlighters. First Row: I love the colour corrector creams, they are so easy to blend and are great if myself or clients have some redness/yellowness on skin or dark circles. This covers it up so well. Second Row: You have your contour, bronze & highlight creams. These are blendable, but you need the right brush. I use Zoeva No. 109 Face Paint Vegan brush to apply and blend. Third Row: I forgot how much I loved these highlighters until I tried them out again on my Snapchat divinenailsros for one of my tutorials. The key to applying this product is to apply on finger tips and dap it on areas you want to highlight. If you drag it, you will remove the product. *colours starting from left is top row RIGHT SIDE On the right side, there are 16 eyeshadows and 3 shades of blush. Eyeshadows: I love the variation of colour in the eyeshadows, you can make any kind of look with them. There’s a great variety of metallic & mattes, so there’s something for everyone. Personally, I found the metallics a lot more pigmented then the mattes. You can just build up the mattes though, whereas the metallics, just one swipe across the lid & it’s done. Blush: The blush range is great, again a colour for everyone. I build up this blush rather than placing a lot on the brush, as it is very pigmented. *above pic of the top 2 rows of eyeshadows *above pic third & fourth row of eyeshadows *above picture of 3 shades of blush

  • Overall, I really like this palette. My favourites are the colour correctors,

May 3, 2017 lisanaughtonmua 7

A couple of weeks ago, I was so lazy one evening & I didn’t want to put my usual tan on. I remembered I heard of this quick tan that you put on for up to 3 hours & shower off, where it then develops. Sounded like my cup of tea. The next day, I purchased it in Rosmed Pharmacy, Roscommon Town.

Colour B4 Remover Review

April 25, 2017 lisanaughtonmua 0

***This is my review from January 2016, so thought I would post it on my blog***

I was colouring my hair from August 2014 – January 2016 a red colour. I had decided to go back to blonde but instead of putting my hair through a lot of stress getting out the red by prelightening etc at hairdressers, I was recommended to try out the Colour B4 Remover, which contains no ammonia or peroxide and shrinks the artificial dye molecules in the hair, enabling you to simply wash them away.

I used read more

April 25, 2017 lisanaughtonmua 0

I purchased these at the Irish Beauty Show in March 2016 and feel that I have used them enough now to review. I purchased the Angled Eyeliner Brush & Pro Eyeliner Brush, as I love eyeliner and it’s hard to find a good brush.

The Angled Eyeliner Brush (bottom brush in pic) can be used as a brow brush and eyeliner brush. The brush is really soft and it is perfect for getting your gel liner straight and to build it up if want it thicker! I have used other brushes but this one is just perfect read more

Milkshake Silver Shampoo Review

April 24, 2017 lisanaughtonmua 0

The grey/silver hair trend is still huge & I personally absolutely love it. You need your hair bleached to almost white to create a base. I get my hair done professionally, as I have seen far too many DIY disasters bleaching hair at home.

I was in the Hair & Beauty Company in Athlone purchasing a few bits for my salon & I asked one of the girls who worked there, Catherine, if there was a toner to go grey. They advised me of the milkshake silver shine shampoo, so I decided to give it a go & purchased it.

I wash my hair 2-3 times a week & left this shampoo on for about 5-10 minutes each time. This shampoo is extremely purple, it literally stains your hands if you leave it on for over 15 seconds without applying to your hair. I definitely seen results by the fifth wash, it was going a grey/purply colour.

I got my hair done again a couple of weeks ago & I repurchased this shampoo the week after. So this time when I washed my hair, I left it on for an hour before rinsing. It was definitely more silver. It took 3 washes in total, where I left the other 2 in for about half an hour each, as I wanted results quicker, to get my hair more silver. To get the results that I have pictured at the bottom to a really grey shade, I use the shampoo ever time I wash my hair, it takes a few goes.

The shampoo can dry your hair out if you leave it on a long time, so I leave in my conditioner for around 10 minutes after & I use a hair mask for about an hour once a week to keep it in good condition.

If you want to go back to blonde, just use head and shoulders shampoo, as this strips the colour out. That’s how I remove it before going into my hairdressers to get my hair redone.

This is the shampoo for you if you want to achieve the silver/grey look. It’s around the €10 mark, I’m not fully sure as I purchase other stuff with it when I buy, & you can get in any Hair & Beauty Company stores in Ireland.
