Following on from the infamous Naked Skin Full Coverage Concealers, Urban Decay have released Color Correcting Fluids. Color correcting is a step in makeup application that people often leave out or maybe they don't know about it or how it works. I have been using a few of them pretty much daily the past few weeks and I am loving them.

Like most women I LOVE handbags however my bank balance doesn't always stretch to meet the expensive price tags they come with. Now, thanks to 100% Irish owned and operated Designer Bid, a new high end luxury online auction destination you can nab a Yves Saint Laurent, Louis Vuitton or even a Chanel handbag for up to 95% off their original retail price. While Designer Bid mainly feature handbags they also auction iPhones, designer sunglasses and more.

Rumours have been flying around over the past few months as to whether or not the the Kat Von D Beauty range would come to Ireland or not.

TREND ALERT | The Bomber Jacket

Once an 80's staple, bomber jackets are everywhere at the moment and they don't seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. I love them because they give a really effortless but glam look to an outfit. They give off quite a relaxed 'I didn't even have to try' vibe.

Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat Slogan Edition

I think I was about sixteen years old when I first used the iconic Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat and to be honest I don't even think I was using it correctly. I don't think I was using many if any makeup products correctly at that age if I am honest. I just bought it because I knew what a big deal it was. Anyway fast forward almost ten years and I have gotten my hands on one of the stunning YSL Touche Eclat Slogan Edition and this time around I am well seasoned in the art of makeup and I could not wait to use it.

Monthly Favourites | January 2016

Oh my God that month just flew by but at the same time Christmas feels like it was ages ago. Has everyone been sticking to their new years resolutions? If not you can always start again tomorrow anyways!! January was only a practice month. 

Today I bringing you my very first monthly favourites of 2016. Now before we go any further it only contains three products but they are the really, really good products. For the remainder of 2016 my monthly favourites will be published on the last day of each month and will contain varying amounts of products depending on how many really wowed me in the four weeks prior. 

Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Eyeshadow Palette 

Retailing at €46.00 this gorgeous palette more than earned it's spot in my monthly favourites. I honestly think I have used it every day I wore makeup since it arrived. It has a gorgeous collection of nudes and browns with some bold bright and dark shades thrown in. In my opinion it would make a fabulous palette for a beginner to makeup or someone who doesn't have a huge selection of eyeshadows as it enables you to easily create both subtle and dramatic looks. In saying that I have hundreds of eyeshadows and I am still obsessed with it. 

If you like the look of the UDxGwen palette then you need to get your skates on because it is limited edition and selling fast by all accounts. If you would like to read more about this palette or see more images of it you can check out my full review post here.

Cocoa Brown Golden Goddess Shimmering Dry Body Oil 

December saw the launch of a new addition to the Cocoa Brown family. Initially launched in Penneys/Primark it is now making it's way onto the shelves of pharmacies and supermarkets. I can only imagine that it is disappearing off them just as quick. I work in a pharmacy focusing on the beauty end of things and we get asked numerous times a day for it. It retails at €11.50 which is way more affordable than other competitors on the market.

The top image is the Cocoa Brown 1Hr Mousse in shade Dark alone and the bottom image has a layer of Cocoa Brown Golden Goddess Shimmering Dry Body Oil over it.

If you haven't already seen this product it is a stunning dry oil with an luminous shimmer that has numerous uses. You can apply it alone to give a dewy glow to the skin, you can apply it over your Cocoa Brown tan for a gorgeous sparkling finish or you can use it as part of your makeup routine as a highlighter. The shimmer it gives is insane!! I always get loads and loads of compliments on it when I am wearing it. If you want to know more about the Cocoa Brown Golden Goddess Oil you can read my full review here.

Urban Decay Naked Skin Ultra Definition Loose Finishing Powder

So I was in the market for a new powder and I always sway towards loose powders because I like a totally matte finish to my foundation. As well as that I find I have quite an oily t-zone so a loose powder really helps to combat it. Recently at a blogger event in my local Debenhams I was chatting a member of the Urban Decay team about my options when it came to their powders and she recommended their Naked Skin Ultra Definition Loose Finishing Powder. 

Lads I haven't looked back since. I have worn it with both highstreet and high end foundations and it always always keeps my makeup shine free for the day. A good piece of advice I got years ago for applying powder was to tap it into your skin with your brush rather than just dust it over and across it. This really sets the foundation in place to help you stay flawless all day long. I can't actually remember was I paid for it. I think it was around the €30.00 mark but it was soooo worth it and I will definitely be repurchasing it. 

Have any of you guys tried the products I have featured above? What did you think of them? Also I would really like to know what you have been loving this month.
