My Holy Grail for under €10

Good evening loves,
I haven't posted a beauty post in quite a while. But I'm back!

Today I wanted to share with you my holy grail make-up product. It is the NYX Concealer! It retails for €6.99 and can be bought in select pharmacies nationwide.

I started using this concealer last year when I seen someone on YouTube recommend it. I'm not going to lie I'm a sucker for beauty vloggers recommendations. They'll suggest it and I'll buy it, mostly to see if the hype is real.



NYX HD CONCEALER

I bought this with pretty high expectations because I've seen so many people use it and love it. I used it under my eyes and loved it instantly, I will say though I find it quite tough to blend out with just a sponge so I sometimes have to use a brush with it, I bought two shades, one to conceal and one to highlight.

It is a very light weight concealer so I use it on days where I want a 'no makeup' look. I just apply a little bit to the areas that I want coverage, set it with powder and boom I'm good to go!
For the price it's absolutely amazing, I've repurchased it numerous times already and I will continue to, I highly recommend for you to try it out, it's a fantastic under eye concealer.

Have you tried this concealer? What are your thoughts?

Review: MAC 125SE Brush

Hey lovelies,
Long time no chat, I've been quite busy recently with work and setting up my lifestyle blog but I wanted to tell you all about my new love!
This is the MAC 125SE  brush, it's part of their Wash & Dry collection and oh my is it amazing! This is my first ever MAC brush so I'm pretty stoked about it, I definitely want to try out some more!

First up look at those gorgeous colors, caught my eye straight away when I went to the MAC counter. The teal, orange and yellow work so well together. It has two toned bristles, one side is blacky brown and the other side is white/cream colored.

I use it for contouring with my Inglot 505 HD Sclupting powder, tap off the excess product on my hand and apply under my cheek bones, under my chin and my forehead. The bristles are ridiculously soft that the product just glides on and it's also really easy to blend out the product while applying so you're not left with any harsh lines.

This brush was priced at €34.99 and can be purchased for a limited time in Brown Thomas stores or Mac Counters. 
I highly recommend this brush but hurry because I know my BT is already sold out!! I'm sure you can purchase them on ebay though.

Have you purchased this brush? What do you think of it?
