Chanel’s new season beauty collections never fail to fill me with desire. For Autumn, and the Collection Etats Poetiques, it’s the three new Le Vernis nail colours (€23 each) that gave me that deep, cosmetic craving that is futile to resist*.
When Orage arrived as a pre-release sample, I almost wept – I’d had it about three seconds before it was on my nails. I’ll still buy Atmosphère, and maybe Secret too (check them all out here), but for now, Orage is my latest, greatest love.
I've been all about this makeup look recently: a quick, laidback, summer look with the focus on glowing, bronzey skin and a simple, one-step eye. Using a mix of high-end and affordable products, they're all easy to work with and look lovely in the sunshine.
Dr Jackson's Natural Products is a niche skincare line that's been tricky to get hold of round these parts - it launched into Harvey Nicks in the UK in 2012, and Net-a-Porter also carries the line. Now, though, the brand has ventured to Ireland and can be found exclusively at Clerys - I caught up with the doctor himself, Simon Jackson, to find out what we've been missing.
Mammy Fluff was recently in town, so we popped along to the spa in the 4-star Carton House Hotel in Maynooth, Co. Kildare, to check out their new Darphin treatment menu.
I'm not hugely familiar with this luxe, Parisian brand but have hugely enjoyed the few products that I've tried (which reminds me, I must tell you about their CC cream soon!).
If you watched my latest beauty video you'll know that Sally Hansen's Airbrush Legs has been a go-to of mine this summer. This instant leg makeup is water resistant, easy to apply and gives skin a perfected, flattering finish with a very believable looking faux-glow. (Missed it?
