So today's post is all about my recent primark or penny's as we call it in Ireland and I picked up a few bits and pieces including items from their beauty range so I thought I would show you guys what I picked up so let's have a little peak.
(1) Let's Face It Ps... moisturiser €2.50
This 12H face moisturiser contains rose and vitamin E which helps restore moisture to your skin this moisturiser is prefect for those who have normal to dry skin and its dermatologically tested. Last night I applied a small amount on my forehead and down the bridge of my nose my skin tends to be quite dry around my forehead after I come out of the shower but when I woke up in the morning it felt replenished, softer and moisturised. Oh and it smells amazing ! Which is a plus.
(2) Ps... lovely and bubbly foaming facial wash €2.75
I actually haven't got the opportunity to try this out yet but when I do you guys will be the first to know. The facial wash contains rose and vitamin E which makes it perfect for all skin types if can be used daily. Pump two pumps of the facial wash into the palm of your hands and gently massage onto your face until it foams up make sure you skin is damp before applying and then simply remove it with warm water.
(3)Ps... Smokey eye shadow palette €6.00
For €6.00 yes it is a bargain but I did swatch it on my hand when I got home and I was disappointed with the pigmentation but I adored the colours of the shades in the palette the shadows would be prefect for a natural and not too heavy smokey eye.I also didn't get a chance to use this yet but maybe the eye shadow is buildable and the pigmentation on the colours will increase the more you apply, fingers crossed !
(4) Ps... oval cosmetic pads €2
These are an essential to have for removing your makeup or cleansing your skin I bought about 3 packets in pennys they are €2 and these are the larger size pads the have smaller ones which are €0.75c each so I picked up a packet of them too they are so handy to have in and plus it's great to have a packet hidden so my sister won't find them.
(5) Ps... cosmetic buds €1
These cosmetic buds are excellent for removing make up or tidying up any mistakes when applying your makeup each tub contains about 80 buds I'll see how long these will last I might run out of them quickly like the last ones I bought.
(6) Ps... Highlighting fan brush €2
I've been looking for a fan brush for sometime now to apply my highlighter and I spotted this one in pennys for €2 sure where would you be going I know the bristles on the brush aren't the best sure what to expect it's €2 but its super handy to have and it does what it's meant to do.
I hope you guys enjoyed this little haul I'm sorry I haven't been posting this while I've been super busy but I'm attending a makeup masterclass by Aimee Connolly on Sunday which I'm super excited about and I can't wait to tell you all about it.
Until Next Time Bee's,
Instagram is one of the biggest social media platforms out there it allows us to instantly upload images,videos and share them with our friends and followers.I thought I would answer a few questions in relation to my Instagram I'm going to call this the Instagram tag.
(1)What's your Instagram username ?
My Instagram user name is @laurabyrne____ I did originally have it as queen_b_blog and I also had a private Instagram I thought there was no point having two Instagram's so now my friends and family can follow me on this one too. Here's the link to my Instagram https://instagram.com/p/BJJaDBeApTq/
(2) How many times in a day do you post ?
I normally post at least twice a day but the most I would post is three times,I think if you over post people will get bored and fed up and will unfollow you.
(3)What is your most liked post ?
The most liked post is a little selfie of me it was a throw back to when I was in Dublin with my sister for the Jason derulo concert in December.
(4)How Many Posts do you have on
Overall on Instagram I have 307 posts which is actually a lot.
(5)Out of all of the filters on Instagram which is your favourite ?
I try not to use filters that much on Instagram personally because I don't like over edited pictures for me it's just a turn off but my favourite filter is Valencia and I always have to add a white background to my images it makes them stand out more.
(6)Favourite Image that you've captured ?
My favourite image hands down has to be the image of the the goldfinch that I captured in my garden.
(7)Do you use your camera or phone more to take pictures ?
I tend to use my phone a lot more than my camera I should really make more of an effort of using my camera it's the NIKON D5500 DSLR Camera in red is pretty snazzy if I do say so myself and the images are such great quality. Here's the link to check the camera out http://goo.gl/uhJZWG.
(8)Do you edit your pictures ?
Like I said previously,I always try not to use filters or over edit pictures it's just a personal thing but if I was to edit I would use the Moldiv app which is great for enhancing pictures I tend to use pic collage just to add white backgrounds to my pictures as well.
(9)Who is your favourite Instagram users ?
Okay I'm going to say number 1 Alva jay she's so beautiful she always captures great images of her makeup and I always like to creep and see what makeup looks she's created. Number 2 Would be Jordyn woods I love her pictures she always looks so flawless and number 3 would be Ashley graham she's so beautiful and love getting see behind the scenes pictures of her photoshoots.
(10) what's the very first picture that you ever posted ?
The first ever picture I uploaded is a screen shot of my blog on the 12th of June 2015 I clearly was trying to do my best self promo.
So there you have it the Instagram tag ! I hope you enjoyed this little post.
Until Next Time Bee's
A few months ago I reviewed the garnier micellar water but over time I found that it was drying out my skin not good,so recently garnier have developed an oil-infused cleansing micellar water which is suitable for both dry and sensitive skin so I thought I would pick up a bottle and try it out.
A few people have had mixed reviews about it the felt the Argan oil residue was still sitting on their skin after they used it some people felt that it didn't remove waterproof makeup as well as the other micellar waters.
But me personally I can't fault it I have quite dry skin and I can never find products that seem to work well with it and the oils contained in the micellar water nourishes my skin. After a good few uses I noticed that my skin felt hydrated and soft not as dry as it was and that's thanks to this micellar water it gently cleanses my skin.yes sometimes I can still feel traces of it on my skin but I don't really mind it because it will absorb into my skin after a while. It removes any trace of makeup even waterproof makeup it's also really gentle to use around my eyes and it didn't cause any irritation which is great.
So I suggest if you have dry or sensitive skin them make sure to pick this up you can buy it at boots for €5.23 here's the link to check it out http://goo.gl/fr3EqY. Also a little tip is to shake the micellar water before you apply it to your cotton pad so you can benefit from the oil as the micellar water and oil separate quite quickly.
