Blogger Rant

Hi my darlings,
how was everyone? I've been better to be honest. Exams stressed me out more than they should have. BUT I don't really want to talk about it or I'll just get another anxiety attack so I'll move on.

Today's post is a rant. I've been looking through the interwebs, like I always do, and I found this one website (I will not name it for quite obvious reasons), and the aim of it seemed to be something like 'Lets bitch about every blogger out there'. No lie, I spent my entire day reading all of the hate posts, and let me tell you.. They were RIDICULOUS!

I have no idea why people would create such pages, what is their aim in doing that? And the saddest thing about it all is that after that website, came another, and another, and another.

The bloggers that were most targeted were Shaanxo, Grav3yardgirl, Trish Paytas, Macbarbie07 and Zoella. There were many more but I paid most attention to those, as they were attacked the most and the worst. The things that were said were beyond hurtful. Even I got offended, and I'm only their subscriber. I honestly hope that none of those bloggers find those websites just cause they're so so hurtful.

I cannot comprehend why such pages exist. Everywhere we go we hear that we should be nice to people because we don't know what they are currently going through, and then we see this?
I completely understand, not everyone is going to be liked, and I know that not everyone is gonna like me. But we should not go and do things like this. This post probably makes no sense but I have so much to say that I don't know where to start.

I also found a post which said that all bloggers should not be trusted because they get things sent to them which means that their opinions must be untrue just because they should repay the company for the product in the form of a great review even if they don't like it. I'm not gonna lie, some bloggers do that to receive more products and you know, if that's what you do okay, but you wont have a great group of followers if you do that. It is super unfair in my opinion.

I have never reviewed a product and lied about it. To me, the trust of my readers is more important than free products (even if free stuff is nice, lets be honest here haha). I did not start my blog to make money off it. I did not start my YouTube to make money off it. I started all of this because I'm honestly interested in the world of fashion and beauty, and if you know me personally it definitely shows. I will never let a company influence my review of their product. It's take it or leave it. When I get an email from a company I state clearly that I will give an honest opinion of their product. This scares most companies off of course, but I'm okay with that. I'm not losing anything by that.

Naturally, I understand that some people stopped trusting bloggers nowadays. Some truly are only driven by the amounts of money that they can get from their work on their blogs or YouTube channels. But I don't think they should believe the 'haters', they should stick to their own opinion of the particular blogger. And oh boy, no words can describe how much I dislike the word 'hater', haters don't exist, they are just simply people that don't like you and aren't afraid to show it. Okay maybe haters do exist but you get the point right? I kinda really want the I <3 my haters snapback though, seems kinda cool.

I think my rant is now over, I might make a video about it, somehow I find it easier to rant talk than rant write. But if you are a blogger and you are being attacked at such pages please don't listen to them people. Keep doing what you do and keep your head up high, (not too high of course hah).

Have you came across such websites? What did you think of them? Were you attacked on such page?

Much love,

Sephora, Chroma Colour Palette. WARNING! Lots of photos!

Hi there!!

I'm back with another post, and as it says in the title, there will be a lot of pictures! So less talking more pictures. I will just momentarily rant about how great the palette is and how much I love it and why. So let's get started!!

I put numbers beside each row so you can see which shadow goes with which swatch, they're all organised. So row 1 is photo directly under this one, and row 2 is under that picture and so on. 

I love these shades the most, they are what I usually wear on an every day basis. The shimmer on them is lovely too, once applied, the shadow doesn't move around your face. It doesn't set on your cheeks during application. I am very impressed with that, because I always always ALWAYS get eye shadow on my cheeks!

I never usually bought coloured eye shadows, I never really felt the need to experiment with different shades. I guess you can call me lazy cause I used earth tones and stuff, and after having this palette for a few months, I still haven't tried out different looks using different colours, so I should really do it! Maybe I'll film a video about it, you never know ;) 

And these separate shades are my favourites. I love the metallic look of them, as well as the lovely shimmer. Some of the shadows contain tiny little pieces of glitter that sparkles so beautifully in the sun!! I definitely would recommend this palette to anyone, make up artists would find it great as well I think. I don't know how much it is, as I got it from my sister and her boyfriend but as soon as I find it online I will update this post. :)

I am sorry for the amount of photos! 
I hope you liked the post, and thank you for being patient!

Dear Darlings,

Hi there,

I am so so sorry for not writing for so long but I recently moved houses and the internet wont be working there until next month. This is a quick post that is informing you that I wont be on here for a little while. I have my finals this month also, so lots and lots of study to be done. I am so very sorry that I cant write as much as I'd want to, I cant even talk to my friends and I am quite upset about the whole situation, BUT I shan't dwell on it.

Once again, I'm super sorry, I promise I will make it up to everyone. Might do a small giveaway ;)

Have a wonderful month,

One Direction 'The Looks Collection'

Hello everyone,
I am really sorry that I was gone for such a long time, but honestly, my life is so chaotic at the moment I couldn't find the time. But this isn't what the post is going to be about.

A while ago, I got asked by a certain company to review a product from their range. This product is the One Direction Makeup 'The Looks Collection'. I have written about other One Direction products in the past so I decided to write about this one as well. Sadly, the company ran out of samples so I wasn't sent one to review, but I agreed to write about it, so here I am. Trying to give you my honest review, like always. I did see them in a TK Maxx where I live and the products look alright, seem like good quality cosmetics. If I wasn't a broke student I'd definitely get one of the sets.
Also they are Limited Edition, but I'm sure that you would be able to find them online or somewhere at the bottom of TK Maxx shelves, like I did a few weeks ago.

So, there are three boxes. 'Up all Night', 'Take me Home' and the 'Midnight Memories' kit, which are named after their albums (DUHH..). So, lets go through them all separately shall we.

The pretty tin contains;  

- A lipgloss called 'Taken', I'd love the have it swatched, and I'm really sad that I can't. I really wish I could show you all. But it's a bubblegum pink, glittery lipgloss which apparently glows orange if you look at it under the UV light. Which to me seems pretty freaking cool. 
- 'I should have kissed you' lipstick, also a pink bubblegum colour. 
- 'Na Na Na' Nail polish, which somehow reminds me of a mermaid or something and that's quite awesome. It is described as 'Aqua - Blue metallic polish' 
- A 'Stand Up' eye and body crayon which can be used as an eyeshadow or eyeshadow base OR I'd personally use it to destroy the faces of my flatmates during sleepovers, by drawing different... images on their faces. 
- 'Little Black dress' mascara, I wish I could see the applicator on it, ugh. I really wish I had them sets to play around with. 
- And finally we have an eyeshadow palette, 'More than this', which is a soft pink colour, 'Gotta be you', a silver, shimmery colour, 'Save you tonight', which is also shimmery but this time its a turquoise blue shimmer, 'Another World' which is again a blue shade and 'Up All Night' which is a sapphire glitter cream shadow. 

The tin also contains stencils with which you can decorate your tin or your skin. See what I did there? Hehehehehe... 

This tin is my favourite out of all three, it contains;

- A golden lipgloss called 'Kiss You' which also changes colour in the UV light, this time it's neon yellow. I'd love to see that haha! 
- 'Last first kiss' which is an amazing looking nude-pink lipstick. I'd love to have it in my collection to be honest. Plus the packaging is just adorable. 
- 'Live While We're Young' nail varnish, the glitter in it is multi-dimentional so it isn't a boring plain glittery polish. 
- The eyeshadow stick is a chocolate brown shade, I think it looks lovely. I have looked at some swatches of it online.
- Again there is a 'Little Black Dress' mascara.
- The eyeshadow palette contains ; 'Back to you' which is a velvet creme shadow, 'Change my mind' a peachy shimmer, 'C'mon C'mon', soft taupe shade, 'Little Things' a smoky brown and 'Take Me Home' which is a golden glitter creme which I think must look amazing. 

In the box, like in the last one, there are stencils which you can use to bring out your creative side. 

The final box consists of;

-'Through The Dark' is a poppy shade, glittery lipgloss. It glows neon red in the UV light, this also I'd love to see.
- 'Best Song Ever' a crimson red lipstick, cause everyone needs a plain red lippie. Even if, like me, you look like the Joker in it, it doesn't matter. You still need it. Trust me. 
- 'Right Now' which is a black metallic nail polish. 
- 'Better Than Words' eye and body crayon. 
- Again, the 'Little Black Dress' mascara.
- Eyeshadow palette is a mix of 'Little White Lies', which is a pale gray colour, 'Dont Forget Where You Belong' it is a soft pink shimmery shadow, 'Half a Heart', a metal grey, 'Strong', which is a must have shade for anyone really, a matte black charcoal shade shadow, and last is 'Midnight Memories', which is a silver creme shadow. 

Plus the stencils. 

And this is it! All three boxes have been summerized, for swatches I'm afraid you will have to go to other beauty blogs, which I am quite upset about haha. I did all I could, and I know that this is a sponsored post, but all opinions are my own. The boxes might be mostly sold out but I checked online, like ebay or things like that and they're still there, so you should be able to find them there. 
I hope you liked this rather weird post, see you in my next one ( which I hope will be out very soon!)

Much love,

Sleek 'Storm' Palette Review...

   Hello my darlings!
Yes, yes. Boo me for being gone for like a month. This time, I don't have a reasonable explanation as to why I was gone (surprise surprise). Laziness maybe? Or because I wasn't feeling all that great, and I'm not talking about a cold or anything like that. 

But dun dun dunnnn... I am back! Please, contain your excitement. 

I have also been gone on my YouTube, and my video (CLICK HERE TO WATCH) looks rather lonely being there all by itself on my channel, so I decided too upload a new video today.  Not sure which one yet, because I have filmed a few. Or maybe I'll edit them all and add one each day. Hmm.. That'd be nice wouldn't it? I don't know yet, I shall see. Ah.. ALSO I am so so soo happy so see that my Facebook page has reached 10.000 likes! I have abandoned it also and I'm so so sorry about that, I kinda took a break from social media, except Instagram of course..(#InstaFoLyfe)

But! I promise I'll do a better job at being a blogger, and a vlogger.. I have a list of when and what social platform I will upload a new post on and I'll stick to it as much as possible. 

Now.. Onto the Palette..
Three words...


I think this is enough. 

But seriously, I knew of those babies since I got hooked on KatOsu makeup tutorials on YouTube, but my local stores never sold Sleek, bummer. I think Ireland overall didn't really carry Sleek. Thank the makeup Gods for bringing Sleek into Ireland. Many Irish bloggers appreciate it, I am sure. I mean I could buy it online, but then I'd have to wait for the order to get here and that is just torture to me. 

So what do I think of it? 

That pigmentation!!
I am actually scared to use the darker shades, because I have gotten the black eye shadow all over my face once. The shimmery shadows are beautiful, I honestly can't find the words to describe this palette. This probably makes me sound like some makeup crazed chick, which I admit I am, not super crazy though, I promise. But yeah, this is a total going out palette. The shadows would look great under some fluorescent lights. The shimmer is beautiful and I really think that any girl would love it. And every girl should own it! If you can't get it message me and I'll get it for you (ha ha jokes, I'm broke, but you get the idea)

So here are a few pics of the palette and some swatches which are shown on my sisters arm (Thank you for letting me use your arm hun) and sorry for the Christmassy background, I took these pictures last year actually. So I hope you like it!

Christmas Gifts!

 Hi everyonee!! I don't think I actually asked you how your Christmas went so I apologize for that! I hope you had an amazing Christmas and spent a lot of quality time with your families and friends! Like last year, I decided to take some photos of few of the things I've gotten for my family. And like I said last year, this post is not me trying to brag or show off or anything, I personally like these kinds of posts so why not make one myself! These are mainly for my mom and sister, because I don't think anyone would want to see drills and all kinds of manly things haha. 

I decided to create a kind of a 'MakeUp Starter Kit' for my mom, since she always has to get makeup from me, so why not get her her own? In it I put makeup brushes and all that basic things that girls use in their daily makeup routine, ie. Foundation, powder, mascara, eyeliner etc. 

Soo.. Let's have a look at it! 

Foundation - Rimmel 'Match Perfection'
Eyeliner - Rimmel 'Glam Eyes'
Powder - Rimmel 'Stay Matte'
Mascara - Miss Sporty 'Pump Up Booster Fast and Furious Mascara' 
Lipgloss - Catrice 'Infinite Shine'


Eyeliner and Eyeshadow - L'Oreal ( As you can see above )

I wanted to get my mom the Real Techniques brushes, but while I was in Primark I've seen their rather impressive brushes collection, so I decided to have a look at them. And OMG IF YOU HAVE A PRIMARK NEAR YOU, YOU GO GET THEM BRUSHES GIRL! They are so so so soft! And really inexpensive. Great for beginners actually!

Being weird, I got a few things for myself also! In Boots, if you spent 20 euro or more on L'Oreal products you got a free gift. And at first I wanted to give the gift to my mom but when I looked at the products I knew my mom wouldn't really use them. So I was like, 'Whoa, Merry Christmas to me!'

Isn't it beautiful?!

I got myself a few more things but I forgot to take photos! There were Essence lip liners on which I will do a separate post on. Pressed powders, primers, etc. I have a photo on my Instagram of those things if you're curious enough. 

These things I got for my sister. I was actually so excited for her to open her present! You can say I spent a bit on her stuff but I think it was worth every cent. I hope that she likes her present! Cause if she didn't I have no problem with taking them things for myself haha. 

Do you ever get jealous of the things you get for others? Yeah? Well it's me now.. I mean Benefit!

And now... The most adorable things I have ever seen. I walked into Claire's and I fell in love. I actually got those back in early November, and I couldn't wait for my mom and sister to see them. They actually use them too! I didn't really expect them to, to be honest! 

So this is it! I got a few more bits and pieces but I just forgot to take pictures afterwards! I'm sorry about that. I hope you liked the post! Let me know in the comments what you got your family and friends for Christmas!
