Benefit Cosmetics Air Patrol - a BB/SPF/Primer bonanza!



Benefit Cosmetics just seem to be the brand that keeps on giving when it comes to bringing out new innovative cosmetics. With two or three new launches per year they do not rest for striving for perfection. Best selling Mascara on the market? We can make it better. Best selling Primer on the market? We can do something different.

And that's what they've done with newcomer Air Patrol.  This new eyeshadow primer has 3 key selling points. It's main function to prime the eyelids ensuring your eyeshadow's longevity. It also has BB properties meaning that it nourishes and smooths out the skin tone thus enhancing any pigment that you put over it. Finally, it has an SPF of 20 so you know that the most delicate area of your face is protected every time you wear it. 

Pretty good eh? I'll admit I was initially skeptical of the tinted cream as it is much darker than my skin tone (as seen below) however it does blend out and is barely visible once applied. 

The memory foam tip is the oddest experience but makes absolute sense when you start using it. Your eyes are delicate and you want an applicator that isn't going to dig into them. Traditionally this has been a finger or brush but now you don't have to dirty them up! You also get zero wastage as a quick reverse click of the tube sucks the product back down. Handy, comfy, clean, and what's even better? It really works!

Budget Beauty Brushes: are they really worth it?

I know what you're thinking. A second bargain beauty post in a row? Maybe switch it up eh? Ummmm nope. I love my premium makeup items, I really do. But I love finding a bargain beauty buy just as much, if not more.

Today I'm talking brushes. There seems to be an incredible range of brushes out there at the minute. Whether it's high end, mid range, or budget, there is something for everyone and there is usually a dupe (or shall we just call them copies?)
Today I'm looking at budget brushes including one of those infamous copies.

Unbranded EBay Brushes 7 piece set for 5.69





An obvious replica of the Real Techniques Precious Metal brushes and at first glance the only difference is that these don't have RT stamped on the side. The design, the colours, the shapes are exactly the same! I've never used the real Real Techniques ones but I'd have to say if I spent £30 or more on these I'd be hugely disappointed. Having only spent a fiver I'm really chuffed. The…

Faeriwood Eats: Wolf & Devour, gluten free dining done right

I get asked a lot about how people can go about promoting their businesses and whilst it is a huge question one of the things I will always recommend is social media and Instagram. I love it. I've discovered so many good restaurants while browsing hashtags and local accounts. Recently I was scrolling through #Glutenfreebelfast and spotted five glorious words. 
Gluten. Free. Mac'n'Cheese. Balls. 
Cue heavy breathing. 
It wasn't until we were sitting down in the small but gorgeously laid out premises - think modern cantina with industrial and urban garden accents - that I realised I've actually seen the Wolf & Devour food truck around festivals and fairs but I had always assumed, being full of all things bready, that they were just a no go for little old Coeliac me. Knowing that they had at least this one gf item on the menu gave me the confidence to go and visit their Ballyhackamore restaurant as soon as I physically could.
Still, when we sat down to order, I involu…

Alita: Battle Angel

For all the hype about it's animated lead character, and the clashing of titans that is Robert Rodriguez and James Cameron, Alita: Battle Angel is the teen fantasy movie (potential) franchise you didn't know you were getting and I'm not sure you wanted. 
Alita starts with Christoph Waltz finding her discarded shell in the trash dump of a mysterious floating city that lords over the world on the ground. He then take her back and, with the help of his *mayaswellbemute* assistant, rebuilds her with a teen shaped mech body he just happens to have lying around and gives her the name of his dead daughter. None of this is supposed to be creepy at all. When Alita, Rosa Salazar, starts to realise that she is not just your typical abandoned teendroid but actually a super slick alien android with secret ninja fighting skills she does what any girl would do... she throws herself at, literally, the first boy she meets and takes up roller derby. Oh but she's also a sassy vigilante …
