Beauty Blogger's afternoon of fun :)

Today I met up with Deirdre and Sinead from VivaAdonis and Claire from In Claireness Now Fair to do what we do best, have the chats and shop for makeup!

We went to the Omni Centre in Santry and visited Superdrug, Unicare Pharmacy and Boots.  I was looking forward to going shopping with like minded lunatics, I mean normal girls, who loving swatching and shopping in pharmacys!  I went armed with Soap and Glory face wipes that I only use to wipe the back of my hand with because they smell like something you'd clean your bathroom with.

These were my purchases today...
Let's start on the left and go clockwise shall we?  First up is VO5's Miracle Concentrate Elixir with Argan Oil which was €3.55.  I'm looking forward to trying this out and seeing how it compares to my beloved Orofluido!  The top products were the Bargain Of The Trip spotted by Sinead in Unicare!  They are Soft Cream Eye Colours from Clarins that were reduced from €14.50 to a measly €3.50!  Only a fellow beauty enthusiast would be excited about a bargain like this :)  On the right is the Volume Fast & Perfect rotating mascara from Bourjois that I've been *dying* to try since seeing it on the Pixiwoo youtube channel.  I love those girls and love trying out their recommendations, especially when they're affordable.  This was on offer for €10.99 and I can't wait to try out this little gadget.  On the bottom is Collection 2000's Lasting Perfection concealer which was €6.40, bought purely because Tanya Burr, aka, Pixi2woo, said it's amazing.  That's good enough for me :)  I love and trust her :)

I also got some cotton pads but didn't think they were picture worthy!  All in all it was a very successful inaugural shopping trip of the Irish Beauty Bloggers.  I'm sure there will be more of them and we shall gather more bloggers as we go!


  1. Feck, I shoulda bought those eye colours! REGRET! X

  2. Please review the collection 2000 concealer, I've been wanting it!

  3. Oh stop! 3.50 for those Clarins beauties? My, I'm jealous! And these are *so* my colours! If I ever am to see your makeup stash, I will not leave without checking out everything you have, like a nosey cheeky that I am!


  4. Great buys! Omni is the best for pharmacy goodies. I want to go shopping you with guys! xxx

  5. will you please let us know how you get on with the mascara? i've been dying to get it too since sam @ pixiwoo used it but the number of mascaras i currently use is totally unreal so really wondering if it's good! and also have my eyes on the new 4d l'oreal one... i know i'm hopeless!!! big thanks X

  6. OK so i will (and us all ) will need an update on the mascara.. is it fiddly for a normal (aka not a pro) to use and what is the oil like, finally what colour did you get in collection 2000 remember i was saying i picked one up last week, i got a 2.. am happy so far but since i am studying all i have put on my face has been moisturiser

  7. @Dee - I know, proper bargain or wha!

    @Actionmags - will deffny give a proper honest review of the mascara, gonna have a go of the oil tonight after my shower and I got the collection 2000 concealer in shade 2 aswell, shade 1 looked too bright, forgot to use it this morny :)

  8. I didn't know there was a DSuperdrug in Omni. Do they stock Sleek by any chance? I always thought the only one was in Tallaght.

    Anyway, also, I just awarded you the Liebster blog award.

  9. @Aphrosie - Superdrug in Omni doesn't stock Sleek unfort, I usually get mine in the one in Newry, hope they bring it to Ireland soon though. Thanks for the award mrs and welcome back :)

  10. Oh dear! Well I will be in London next week so miht try find a superdrug over there. No bother hon and thanks.
