Bat for lashes with Catrice Cosmetics! 

Make lashes big, bold and beautiful with Catrice Cosmetics! This season, lashes should be dramatic and high impact, boasting volume, length and definition. Luckily Catrice has all the tools you need to create perfect fluttering lashes whatever the occasion.Here are a few of our must-have products, available in Penneys stores and selected pharmacies nationwide now:

This newly formulated mascara treatment contains the active ingredient Widelash™, helping eyelashes appear fuller, longer and stronger by promoting hair bulb keratinocyte proliferation and ensuring optimal hair anchorage. The transparent mascara aims to make lashes up to 3 times stronger and for optimal results, apply in the evening like regular mascara so that the Widelash™ can develop overnight.

An important, but often overlooked, step in creating dramatic lashes is using an eyelash curler. This premium Lash Curler from Catrice contains an integrated, removable comb that will help fan out lashes to create depth and volume. For optimal results, gently warm the curler in the palm of your hand to create a gentle heat that will shape lashes even quicker.

A new arrival for Autumn/Winter, the Prêt-à-Volume Smokey Mascara range delivers up to 18 hours of clump-free and smudge-free, luscious lashes. The mascara has a voluptuous fibre brush to evenly coat lashes and add lashings of volume. The mascara is available in Velvet Black and Waterproof varieties.

Catrice Glam & Doll False Lashes Mascara, RRP €4.50

Another hero product and a 2016 RSVP Beauty Awards winner, the Glam & Doll False Lashes Mascara has been a firm favourite for fluttering lashes since arriving on shelves earlier this year. This mascara features a curved elastomer brush which reaches each individual lash, coating them with a deep black texture. The volume formula amplifies lashes for dramatic results.   

Catrice Lash Couture – Smokey Eyes Volume Lashes, RRP €4.50

As the saying goes, fake it ‘til you make it! Catrice offers a great range of false lashes – both individual and strip – that will instantly add volume and drama for the perfect finish. We especially love the Corner Lashes for a more understated finish.

Primark/Penneys got their Glow 

This beautiful box of shimmery wonderfulness arrived a couple of weeks ago and I’ve been positively glowing ever since! 

Here’s the spiel from Penney’s PR about the gorgeous products I have fallen in love with: 

My favourite products from this magical box so far have been The metallic nail polishes and the Bronze Body Stick which I used on a models arms, shoulders and decollatage recently for a magazine cover shoot, she looked incredible anyway but this body bronze product gave me the shimmery glow I wanted to achieve almost instantly and quickly which is essential when working within a limited time frame. And the incredible news is, it’s only €6!

PS Penneys/Primark Bath & Body Collection review 

Strawberry, Pink Grapefruit and Coconut sound good? They smell even better than you can imagine and I’ve been enjoying these latest treats from Penneys ever since I got them in the post. 

My daughter Zara-Zöe just loves the Strawberry shower gel, especially after swimming and has been loving using the body scrub on her little knees. The hand cream is gorgeous too, and it doesn’t leave your hands too greasy afterwards which is a pet hate of mine, so I can get on with things. 

I’m loving the Coconut products too much, the scrub is perfect for gently removing any unwanted remnants of fake tan and it effectively removes and softens any dry/dead skin, leaving your skin nice and soft. The body spray is gorgeous and the fresh scent of coconut gives you a holiday lift in this dreary grey weather we have at the moment. It dries quickly so is perfect after the shower before dressing. 

I gave my Mum the Pink Grapefruit products to try and she is loving them, she’s particularly loving the scent and the hand cream is perfect for her as it’s not too overwhelming. 

The PS Love Rose perfume is so light and hints of floral and citrus make it perfect for daytime.

The PS Love Noir Perfume is a heavier scent with accents of musk and is a gorgeous perfume for evening. 

Penneys also very kindly sent me a backpack also pictured and it’s lined so can be used for the gym. We are currently loving it for swimming and it’s just €12 The Bath and Body range is available in Penneys now and prices range from €2

Hot Lips from Charlotte Tilbury

I received these gorgeous lipsticks from Charlotte Tilbury and wanted to use them on make up applications to try them out before I did a blogpost. Here’s what Charlotte herself says about her new lipstick range.

Darlings, I always say lipstick empowers confidence – it’s happiness in a tube! My beautiful NEW HOT LIPS collection has been created in collaboration with 12 incredible, brilliant, hypnotising women for an incredible charity: Women for Women International! Featuring my revolutionary, iconic square-angled tip that is designed to mimic a lip brush, as well as my CEW award-winning formula enriched with Orchid Extract, and voluminising 3D pigments for cashmere-soft lips that look lit from within. 

Electric Poppy is a vibrant hot pink, it’s creamy texture feels gorgon on your lips and lasts longer than a satin finish lipstick. Gorgeous for girls who love to make a statement.​

Salma’s smouldering and sexy colouring is so enchanting that I wanted to bottle it! That natural deep-rose plum brings out her beautiful brown eyes, adding instant sultry Latin sex-appeal to anyone who wears it. The perfect addition to the alluring DOLCE VITA look!

Kim K W is a beautiful nude lipstick, less of an orange undertone than Nude Kate and versatile enough to suit most skin types. Perfect with a dark smoky eye and beautiful alone or with gloss on top. 

Hot Lips are €30.00 and are available from Charlotte Tilbury online Here Or At Brown Thomas Here
