NYX- Away We Glow Liquid Highlighters Review

I’m sure I’m not the only one who loves a good highlighter. I’ve so many different highlighters in my makeup drawers its like a big decision each day as to what one to use. I’ve tried out so many different highlighters some good some bad but one thing I’m always unsure of is liquid highlighters. I always find I go for a powder highlighter over a liquid highlighter as I’ve never been too keen on liquid highlighters, I find some can leave my skin very sticky and uncomfortable so I always tend to just pick up a powder one. I love highlighters and anyone who knows me knows I love to have my skin GLOWING!!

Until recently when I received 2 liquid highlighters from NYX Professional Makeup I would never have thought I’d actually like a liquid highlighter. I’m such a huge fan of NYX Professional Makeup as all of their products are so beautiful, easy to use and are super affordable for any makeup lover. I received 2 shades from the NYX professional Makeup Away We Glow Collection. The 2 shades I received were Crystal Glare(AWG04) which is a white champagne pearl colour and Rose Quartz(AWG05) which is a rose gold pearl colour. There are 9 different shades to choose from in this collection so there is defiantly a shade to suit every skin tone.

How I use mine is I grab a small about of product onto the wand and dab it onto my skin on the places I want to highlight. With these products a little bit goes a long way but they are really buildable so depending on the look your going for id recommend just starting off with a small amount of product on the wand and build it up if you want to achieve the look your going for. Personally I tend to always reach for Crystal Glare just because it really suits my skin tone but with a tan Rose Quartz equally looks just as good. I tend to dab the product directly onto my skin using the wand and then I just blend it out by either using my finger or a beauty blender.

These products are really lightweight and don’t leave your skin feeling irritated or sticky. They blend out so easily and leave you with a stunning dewy look which I absolutely love. Whether your going for a natural or super glam look these will definitely help you achieve whatever type of look your going for. Personally for me these products are amazing and I’m definitely going to pick up some more shades from the collection to try out. If you are prone to oily skin I would recommend maybe using a powder highlighter over the liquid just to set and keep everything in place.

Overall I am such a fan of these liquid highlighters which I never thought I would be but they leave you skin looking amazing with a gorgeous dewy look which I absolutely love.

These liquid highlighters retail at €10.50 and can be bought from Arnotts, Beautybay.com, and from selected pharmacies nationwide (I do know McCabes Pharmacy in Dundrum stock lots of NYX Professional Makeup products) you can also purchase these along with a whole range of other fabulous products from http://www.nyxcosmetics.co.uk

I hope you all have enjoyed todays post, let me know what your thoughts are on liquid highlighters and/or have you tried out any of the away we glow range yet

How to Get Whiter Teeth with Instant Whites

Hey everyone

So I have always wanted perfect white teeth and I'm sure a lot of others are the same. I have considered getting my teeth whitened but the expense is just too much and then theres always the question in the back of your head "will it work?".

Over the years I have tried many different teeth whitening toothpaste and kits which some have helped a lot but others just not at all.

Recently I discovered Instant Whites and I thought to myself I need to try this. I was so lucky to receive one of their New CoCo Bright White Light Activated Teeth Whitening Kits (yes I know the names a bit of a mouthful), I tried the edit out the other night with a doubt in my mind saying this won't work but no word of a lie IT WORKED!!!

Basically this kit is a Light Activated Teeth Whitening System which leaves your teeth feeling so much cleaner and up to 8 shades whiter without the use of any peroxide. Now from my experience I wouldn't say my teeth are 8 shades whiter but this kit does work and has whitened my teeth better then any other previous kits I've tried. I used to have braces and I'm a huge lover of tea so my teeth do have yellow stains just like most people. After using this kit I would say the yellowness in my teeth has severely reduced and my teeth appear much brighter then before.

This is a really safe and effective light activated coconut based formula which makes it easy to get whiter teeth from the comfort of your home. It is specially formulated by clinical dentists and used for in clinic whitening too. The mini light activates the whitening gel delivering clinically proven results of up to 8 shades in 7 applications. Ive now only used the kit twice so my teeth are not 8 shaded whiter but lets hope over the next couple of applications the results will improve even more.

How to use
This kit is super simple to use and heres all you have to do:

1. To activate the mini accelerator light remove the plastic shield from under the batteries, its recommended to brush, floss and dry your teeth before each application.

2. Attach the dual mouth tray to the mini light, then attach one of the applicator tips to a gel syringe.

3. Apply a maximum of 1ml of the Instant Whites™Coco Bright White gel to each inner wall of the mouth tray, make sure to focus more on the frontal 6 – 8 teeth that are visible when you smile.(Ensure you do not over fill the tray)

4. Switch the mini light on and sit the filled tray directly against the teeth. Hold it in place with your lips and use for 30 minutes per day.
Rinse mouth and tray with warm water after use.

So simple to use and the results are amazing. Here is a before and After of my teeth from just ONE application!

What you get in this kit is:

•3 pre loaded Whitening Gel syringes which each contain 5ml of the whitening formula

•7 Applicator Tips which help to spread the product onto the mouth guard/tray

•It comes with 1 Dual Mouth Tray and 1 Mini Light which attach together

•This kit also includes 2 Batteries for the mini light.

Personally I'm such a huge fan of this teeth whitening kit and its so affordable for something that actually works. This kit retails at 27.99 BUT for a LIMITED TIME ONLY you can purchase this kit for 19.99

How to keep your Blonde Hair Bright with KEVIN.MURPHY

Hey everyone,

Happy Wednesday!

For all you blondies out there I'm sure I'm not the only one who suffers from yellow toned, dull and dry hair literally ALL THE TIME? Recently I discovered KEVIN.MURPHY who kindly sent me out their latest product SHIMMER ME BLONDE. This is a shine treatment spray created specifically for highlighted, blonde and/or grey hair shades. My hair is blonde and has been bleached so many times no matter what I use I can never get it to a nice look and feel. I was really excited to try this product has I had previously seen other bloggers at the launch and using it themselves at home. Ever since I got this product I have been non stop using it. It's MAGIC!!

The package of this product is also so so cool when you shake the bottle it's like a magical liquid of glitter that appears. It also makes a really cool boomerang. If you can see in the pictures the first one is without being shaken the second one is when the magic is released.

The new SHIMMER ME BLONDE is formulated to counteract any unwanted yellow tones in your hair. It also will enhance colour as it treats your hair leaving it super soft and shinny. I personally find with my hair it looks more yellow then blonde but shimmer me blonde has truly brought my hair back to life. I find with this product it leaves my hair looking and feeling a lot more natural rather than that straw look and feel of it. Especially with my hair being blonde I feel that from all the bleach it has lost its natural shine and feel to it. From using SHIMMER ME BLONDE I honestly can say it feels and looks in the best condition it has been for years.
I recently went to the salon and they used all KEVIN.MURPHY (because I asked) products in my hair you can see a before and after picture below.

How to Use

Apply the product to damp, towel-dried hair or dry hair. I normally spray it in once I've had my shower and my hair is still damp. Give the bottle a little shake before using. You do not have to rinse your hair after applying the product just leave to dry naturally or style as desired. It basically works as a conditioning treatment for you hair.

As well as the SHIMMER.ME BLONDE I also received the Blonde Angel wash which is a colouring enhancing Shampoo and also the Blonde Angel which is basically a treatment conditioner.

Blonde Angel Wash: This shampoo promises to add volume, thicken, reduce breakage and is colour safe meaning it won’t strip the colour from your hair. It's purple in colour and looks amazing. This has definitely done all of the above, my hair feels thicker, looks much more voluminous.

 
Blonde Angel: This conditioner treatment is really soft and gentle on the hair and is also purple in colour. It gives my hair a gorgeous shine and most importantly looks super fresh and shinny just like I'm after walking straight out of a hair salon.

 
I’ve been using them every second day for the past month and my hair has honestly never looked so good. If you’re looking to get some really good hair care I couldn't recommend better. KEVIN.MURPHY cater for all hair types so no matter what your hair colour is you'll be sure to find the right products for you.


 

You can check out the full range of products KEVIN.MURPHY have to offer including all the products mentioned above here on the website

I adore this range so much much and I wish I had of tried it out sooner. I'm such a HUGE FAN of KEVIN.MURPHY

How to tan quickly using Skinny Tan 

Hey everyone
HAPPY SATURDAY!
I hope you all have a lovely weekend and for those of you heading to longitude this weekend I am very jealous. Anyway this isn’t my first time to post about a tan as those of you who have followed me for a while now will know I regularly post about tans as I love trying out new tans all the time. 

This time it’s a new one for me it’s called Skinny Tan. Being honest I had never heard or even seen of Skinny tan before but I wish I had of known about it sooner. very fair skin. Skinny Tan offers a one-for-all solution, no fair, medium or dark shades. I didn’t know what to expect at first but my oh my I am super impressed with the results. 


I’m terrible for leaving things till last minute especially when it comes to tanning I could apply a tan on the morning I need to be tanned and sometimes it just doesn’t turn out in my favor. With this tan it’s an express tan meaning Skinny Tan Express lets you express yourself and choose the level of your tan, so if your sometimes like me and leaves things a bit last minute then this tan will definitely be your best friend. 

I also received the skinny tan not with mine which I use every time I’m applying this tan. The mit is really nice, it helps to spread the mousse evenly onto the skin while also protecting your hands from getting any tanning mousse on them. In just one hour you get the results that are perfect for a natural look if you want leave it for 2 hours and get the deeper darker mousse Dark effect, And in just 3 hours you can dare to go even darker with results that are flawless and always streak-free. When I say always streak free it honestly is streak free this tan is so so easy to blend and I’ve not had any problems since using it.

If your not the best at tanning or just not that comfortable as it may always go wrong well then this tan will certainly help you weather your a beginner or a tanning expert it’s super simple for everyone to use. It blends out really easily and is also quite moisturising on the skin it doesn’t dry it out or go patchy.  
With this you can Tan in 1 hour and it claims to last for 14 days straight. Personally I’ve found it lasts well for at least 5 days depending how long you leave it on for I normally just do an hour before showering as this gives a really natural look and it fades really well afterwords. 
Skinny tan is available in the UK but the best news is it’s coming to IRELAND!!!

I’m so excited and can’t wait for you all to try it
For my Irish followers for now You can order it online here https://www.skinnytan.co.uk/

Skinny tan – “Tan, tone and smooth naturally. Streak, paraben and cruelty free with a delicious holiday scent!”

What I wore in Lanzarote 

Hey everyone,
Happy Monday! 
I just got back from my trip to Lanzarote and I have such bad holiday blues. I’m already trying to plan where to visit next.
Today I thought I’d do a post on some of the outfits I wore whist on holiday. I will over the next few weeks do a full post about where I stayed, ate and all my recommendations for visiting Lanzarote but for now it’s just all about the outfits. 

First up is this black floral dress. I adore this dress it’s so comfortable to wear and looks great on. I picked this up in penny’s (Primark) and only cost me €8. I got mine in a size 8 and there’s still plenty of room. I love how it sits off the shoulders and looks fabulous with a tan. I paired mine up with some tan coloured sandals in which I also picked up in penny’s (Primark) and only cost €13. The shoes are really comfy and easy to wear. 

I loved this dress so much I had to pick it up in another colour in the same size so I got a gingham red and white colour in it and it’s exactly the same. Comfy and looks good on. It also only cost €8. 

Next up are these super cozy wine coloured culottes. I picked these up in penny’s(Primark) and they were on sale at the time for €5 I couldn’t resist. I could only get them in a size 10 but they are too big luckily there is a lovely little matching belt that comes with them so I was able to tighten them in. My top I got from Zara and was €19.99 in a size small. It’s super cute and could be matched up with loads. I love white tops, skirts, dresses etc especially while on holiday because it always looks good with a tan. My shoes are from penny’s(Primark) and cost €6

Some of the nights I liked to keep it really simple and just wear some denim shorts because who doesn’t love a pair of denim shorts whilst on holidays. Again I got my shorts from pennys(Primark) they were €15 and I got them in a size 10. They have little studs and pearls on each side of the pockets and rips that make them even more stylish. I wore it with a grey lace bralet also from penny’s which was €10. My top ties at the front and cost me €19.99 from Zara. I got it in a size small as that’s the size I always get once I buy from Zara. My flipflops are also penny’s(Primark) and were €5 they are so comfy and feel like slippers I could wear them all the time.

Again wearing the same shorts as I mentioned above from penny’s(primark) just this time I wore them with a different top. It’s a blue and white striped Bardot top which is also from penny’s(Primark) and cost only €6. I got it in a size 8 and again plenty of room. My sandals are also penny’s(Primark) and we’re €6. This Blue outfit in the sun really shows off my tan which I love and wish it would last forever. 

These are just a few of the outfits I wore during my time in Lanzarote. If you can’t tell from this post yes I am a HUGE Penny’s fan and would buy the entire shop if I could.
I hope you all enjoyed this post let me know your thoughts on my outfits etc. 
Much Love,

Daniel Wellington New Classic Petite Collection & Discount Code

Hey everyone!
Keeping it short and sweet today. 
Recently I received a gorgeous watch from Daniel Wellington. It is from the new classic petite collection. I’m so happy with the watch first off the strap on the watch fits perfectly as it can be adjusted to fit any wrist size which I find great as I’ve very small skinny wrists so usually watches etc tend not to fit but this one is perfect. Also the dial on the watch is really clear and easy to read even in sunny weather which is great as I love a big watch thats clear and simple to read. 

This is my only watch from Daniel Wellington and I picked the classic petite Melrose in rose gold colour. I love anything rose gold as I’m sure most people do too it’s a really nice colour to match up with jewellery and outfits and it’s also a perfect all year round colour. 
As I’ve mentioned this watch is from a brand new watch collection called the Classic Petite Collection. I love the entire collection as the watches are all so individual and elegant. What’s great about Daniel Wellington watches is that the actual strap on the watch can be changed. These can be bought separately meaning you can have a white leather strap one night and a rose gold strap the next. Whatever suits your style. There are plenty of different watches and straps to choose from on the website. If I could have them all I would. 

The most exciting/best news about this post is that I have been given a discount code for you all to use to receive 15% off everything on the website just use my code CIARAGLYNN15 at the checkout on http://www.danielwellington.com I’m in love with my #DWClassicPetite watch and I can’t wait to wear it all throughout summer.
