New Product Alert: Benefit Roller Lash



It's a cold Tuesday night and I'm being led towards the back of a lorry in a deserted car park. No this isn't the beginning of every slasher movie ever made, this is the top secret launch of a new Benefit Cosmetics product. 


Inside we are greeted with a much friendlier scenario. The truck is decorated as a cute kitschy salon as only Benefit could do. We are greeted with non-alcoholic wine, nibbles and the opportunity to coo over the awesome light fixtures. 

We're also surrounded by these giant brushes..




And then the penny drops!

Roller Lash is Benefits answer to the problem of How do you top the best selling Mascara in the world when you're the one that makes it?! Well you make it do everything it's older sister doesn't do!

So what does it promise?

• Specially designed curved brush with 2 types of bristles for both your upper and lower lashes. And no spikey ball.
• A new formula designed to increase the curl of even the straightest lashes! Because brush alone does not a curl make.
• Vitamin B enriched to nourish your lashes - let's face make up isn't always good for you, every little bit of extra nourishment always helps. 
• Easy to remove! Unlike its predecessor they promise that Roller Lash is super easy to remove. No more scrubbing late into the night. 



After a fab demonstration and presentation from the lovely Mark, lead makeup artist and self described "Voice of Benefit", we were able to mingle with the whole team, test out a number of their other new products and spend more time marvelling at the decor. 


Seriously though... These cusions!! 



As we left we were given goodie bags with both Roller Lash itself and Puff Off, an under eye cream released at the end of Jan. Super generous and in this class wee Makeup bag. Thankyou to everyone at Benefit Ireland for such a lovely evening!


So after a few days wear what am I thinking?



Well as you can clearly see it works. Ok my lashes aren't as super curly as you would get with a heated curler or some LVL extensions but there is a definite uplift and I can actually (weirdly?) feel the difference. No camera tricks here just me and my iPhone 6 cam taking stealthy photos in work on an otherwise makeup free face. 

Sold on it yet? I am. 

Roller Lash hits stores on February 28th. Set your reminders now!

Ophrys Skincare

If you have been following my blogs and social media you will have seen that I am currently partnering with Therapie Clinics and trying out their range of specialist facials to try and improve my skin. Alongside the facials (my second of which is coming up in April!) I have really tried to up my game with my skin care. Rather than just slapping everything that says hydration on I am really trying to target specific areas and problems. This has not been without it's troubles as my sensitive skin tries to adjust to this higher level of care. As a result of this - and a few other internal factors - I have been experiencing a few more breakouts than normal but I have been coping with them better. It's all about the give and take. And when it comes to the 'give' I was very lucky to be approached by Ophrys Skincare to talk about their new range of low molecular hyaluronic skincare with their patented Mini-Hax particle. "Low Ma-what?" I hear you say? Well... Low

IMATS London 2013 Haul featuring Nars, Crown Brush UK, OCC & more!

Hello Lovelies!! And how are we this fine day? I'll be honest with you I'm completely shattered but it's all been worth it as I had an amazing time at IMATS this weekend. I'll be posting some photos of the show itself shortly (I need to wait first of all to see which photos are chosen for the Irish News article Bexberry is writing - Sounds quite fancy doesn't it!) but before then I thought I'd show you the important stuff... My Haul!! As you may have seen from my Instagram I went a little brush crazy with a total of 10 brushes! First up and top of my shopping list was the Louise Young  foundation brush, Bex had picked it up last year and has raved about it ever since. And since learning that stipple brushes actually aggravate dry skin and cause it to flake (!!!) I was on the hunt for a new brush and this was it. Have to say 3 days in & I'm loving it. Already I notice a difference in the longevity of my foundation just from this one brush! Nex

Le mini macaron gel manicure kit review

Can we talk about how long it's been since I've done a nail post? Too long. Far too long! Well wait no more because I have the cutest little product to show you! I picked Le mini macaron in Sephora. It was clearly over priced at around €30 but completely irresistible to my gel obsessed self (hey, it's sort of my job so I have an excuse) especially in my Sephora daze where I went into shove-everything-in-the-basket mode.  No regrets.  The kit comes in 4 colours, I chose peach because I love saying le péché in French and I LOVE the colour peach. It's the cutest little kit that comes with a usb cable, a little nail file and a cuticle pusher as well as some remover wipes and a European plug. The latter two remain completely unused.  In Sephora itself you can buy stand alone polishes in a huge assortment of colours but to be honest, I wouldn't buy these polishes again. Single step UV polishes (no base or top coat needed) sound great but there is
