Matt Candy Liquid Lipstick | Review + Giveaway!

Phew, I am so glad to finally have this review up! If you don’t follow me on Instagram (you totally should btw) then you wouldn’t know how much I’ve been raving about these products for the last day or so.

I loved these products so much that I’m even doing a giveaway, but more on that later.

The products I’m reviewing today are the Matt Candy Liquid Lipsticks made by hair extensions company Hairspray. This company has quite a few own brand beauty items such as nails & makeup brushes. But I believe it’s the lipsticks that really make them stand out from the crowd.

The packaging on these lipsticks is extremely simple; a clear bottle, name sticker and lip stained metallic pink lids. The box that the lipsticks come in are also extremely simple but are so bloody cute. Again, it’s pink with darker pink stripes running down with the name, shade & same lips logo on the front.

Like I said, super cute. Now on to the actual product. These lipsticks come in a ton of shades, but I chose to pick outside my comfort zone & pick shades that I wouldn’t normally wear on a daily basis. Therefore, I settled on Joy, Tease, Champagne and Kiss. The formula of these is amazing. I was quite worried like I said above, about using these. I thought they may be too drying, or that they would be too sticky.

But I was pleasantly surprised with the consistency of the product, the vibrancy and the fact that they dried nicely but didn’t dry out my lips any more than a more expensive liquid lipstick, which for me is important.

Overall, I was so, so happy with these liquid lipsticks. I couldn’t have asked for more and I would highly recommend buying, and if you are interested you can buy here. I even loved them so much, that I decided to do a giveaway! I will be giving away four of these liquid lipsticks, shades picked out by the winner themselves as well as a few other goodies.

Naked 3 vs Nude Eyes | Dupes

I know I have been completely awol for like the past month, which I completely apologise for. It has been hectic, my new site is on hold and it’s just been a mess. But, I’m back & I also still have 25% off Mikasa Beauty- not only there brushes but everything on their site!

If you are interested visit http://www.mikasabeauty.com and use the code Chloeantonia25 at the checkout!

So I think I may have found a dupe for the Naked 3 palette by Urban Decay. I know, everyone has a dupe for this, but I don’t think I’ve seen this one floating around anywhere.

The palette in question is actually from Primark and is from their PS collection. It is called nude eyes and I cannot remember where I got this, at all. I definitely didn’t buy it myself, but I found it & swatched it and thought this looks hella similar.

Best part about this? It’s only €5, guys in Ireland the Naked palettes go for about €45, you can save yourself so much money.

Nude Eyes has ten eye shadows, whereas Naked 3 has 12. Ive narrowed it down and the two shadows that seem to be missing are Limit and Burnout. Every other shadow is there from Dust to Blackheart & they are pretty bang on if you ask me. I will be doing swatches and comparisons over on Snapchat which is misschloetoni & also on Instagram which is the same handle!

So what do you think? Will you be rushing out to buy Nude Eyes? Leave me know in the comments below. If you enjoyed please follow my (m blog so you never miss a post. Xx

Who Would Like To Collab?

To officially kick off my new blog I’ve decided that I want to collab with a fellow newbie blogger, mainly because people are forever telling me how fun it is and that you can meet amazing people through it, etc. I know how scary it can be to start a blog, because, I have had other blogs before this, and having a support network of friends who are in the same boat is so important. If you want your blog to be a success in general, making friends with others online is highly recommended. And it would make the whole newbie process seem a little less daunting.

So, if there are any new bloggers or just bloggers out there who want to collab on anything beauty related, please feel free to email me. I would love to hear from you and I would absolutely love to collab. My email address is chloeantonia1@gmail.com

Have a fabulous day! X

Primark PS Skin Care | First Impressions

Today I will be speaking about something that I’ve been quite curious about for a while now and that’s Primark’s skin care range. I have very sensitive skin when it comes to skin care and although I love finding cheap makeup brands, I can never be togo sure when it comes to skin care.

In saying that, Primark had to have the cutest packaging on their products (I’m a sucker for cute packaging) so of course, I had to pick it up. And although my skin may resemble something similar to a tomato in a few days, I will be trying them out, because, well I must like the pain of inflamed skin. Jokes, kind of.

So the first product I picked up was the Face The Day moisturizer. It says that it’s oil free, has cucumber and witch hazel & is suitable for normal/combination skin types. I have tried this out, and although it left my face feeling super smooth and not at all oily, it is very scented which sometimes irritates my skin, but the scent is gorgeous so I’m not complaining too much. Also, can we all please appreciate how summery this packaging looks?

Next, I picked up the Love To Glow face mask. I am not one to judge at all when it comes to cheaper products- most of holy grails are from the drugstore, but as soon as I took the tub out of the box I knew we weren’t going to get along well. Even my mom said I was going to break out badly. Something about the colour unsettled me, or maybe it was something else about the product but I just felt really nervous putting it on my face.

Again, it smells amazing, but I don’t know how well it will go down with my skin. Honestly, I was really surprised at how nice my skin felt afterward. It was very nice and I’m excited to use it again.

I also picked up the Lovely and Bubbly foaming facial wash. I’ve used this twice now and I already know I will not be able to use it,unfortunately. It has really irritated my skin, which is a shame because it is actually a good face wash. It does a great job at taking off your makeup, especially when paired with the next product I’ll be speaking about.

This face wash is very strong in scent, even more than the rest and I really think that is probably why my skin has reacted so bad. So, if you do have a problem with scented products I’d stay away from this but if not, I’d go for it because it is nice despite the burning face and all.

The last product I will be speaking about and my personal favourite, the Easy On The Eyes makeup remover. I love, absolutely love finding an inexpensive makeup remover that is good. And I’ve only used this twice and I can already tell I will be repurchasing.

I was astonished at how well it broke down my eye makeup. It was fab, really. It is very oily compared to some other eye makeup removers, but just give your eyes a quick pat with a paper towel and you’re fine. Out of all the products, I would recommend this the most, but I will be doing a full review on everything (except the facial wash) in a few weeks after I have properly tested the products.
