Dyson V8 Absolute 15/04/2017

Dyson v8

Dyson V8 Absolute I’ve been working as a cleaner for the last 4 or 5 years, cleaning was actually my first real job and I’ve been doing it ever since. I’ve used, maintained and fixed a tonne of equipment. I have my favourites, especially with vacuum cleaners. Up until last week I’d never had much experience with a Dyson, in either a domestic, commercial or industrial setting...until last week at least. I’ve been using 2 types of Dyson vacuums these past 14 days extensively, I used to always want a Dyson. I thought they were the best thing around, but for the price I never bought one. Features and Specs Okay guys, so I’ve had to do a lot of looking around to make sure the specs are all here! Couldn’t find the manual in work! * Weight: 2.61kg * Bag less * Whole Machine Filtration: Expels cleaner air than what you breath by removing dust and allergens * Energy Usage: 425W * 2 Tier Radial Cyclones: Arranged in 2 tiers, 15 cyclones work and increase airflow to remove finer dust * Max Power Mode: Allows up to 7 minutes of maximum suction for hard jobs * Dirt Capacity: 0.54 litres * Converts to High Clean and Handheld: Lightweight and compact design allows for high cleans, while removable pole allows for transformation into small, handheld vacuum * Hygienic Dirt Ejector: Empty the bin easily with just one step * Dyson Digital v8 motor: Makes the most powerful handheld vacuum * 40 minutes of Power: A battery made of Nickel, Cobalt and Aluminium helps the vacuum last for 40 minutes, or 25 minutes ...

Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Color 09/04/2017

Cream eye shadow, with a hint of permanent marker!?

Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Color The Product So the product I'm reviewing is the Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour, in Amethyst. The sample I received is pretty generous, it's 1.00g. The full size is 1.64g, so I'm pretty pleased with that. It's just over 4.5 inches long and 0.5 inches wide. It's a cream eye shadow, so like the rest it can be used: * All over the lid * As a liner * Shimmer allows highlighting (with generous blending) * To create a smokey eye (with some blending) The Amethyst colour is SUPPOSED to be a gorgeous pale purple colour, with a shimmer finish, yet you'll notice from the swatches, mine is a dark coppery colour with some purple undertones. I don't mind, it's still a beautiful colour! It comes in a sleek black screw case, to allow push up of the eye shadow. The colour is added to the bottom of the tube, with Laura Mecier is typed on the side in a lovely thin, metallic font. lt looks very modern and very high end. On the back AMETHYST Caviar Stick Eye Colour Couleur Yeux En Crayon Dist. Gurtwitch Products L.L.C. PO BOX 7568, New York, NY 10150# RP. MSL. BL9 5NB. UK Made in USA . 1. 00g / POIDS NET WT -.03 OZ 18M Application So the eye crayon is really creamy, and just glides over the lid, and the small thin tube makes it very easy to hold. It applies easier than a Kohl Liner. Surprisingly, it layers excellent. From light to full coverage depending on the look your going for. The creamy texture also allows you to blend really easily. Depending on your ...

Maybelline SuperStay 24H Lipstick Creme Caramel 08/04/2017

More lipstick! 24 hours of lipstick!!

Maybelline SuperStay 24H Lipstick Creme Caramel This lipstick is actually a favourite of mine, it ticks all the boxes for me. It’s relatively cheap, has excellent staying power, gorgeous colour and this particular lipstick comes in a large range of shades too, as well as being liquid lipstick. I swear, this lipstick is my Holy Grail! Almost finished my Creme Caramel , I’ve already finished the colours Perpetual Rose, Fuschia, and Soft Taupe. What is it? SuperStay 24HLip Colour is a liquid lipstick, with a conditioning balm. Available in 18 different colours (at least, on the American Maybelline site there's 31!!!!) but for my own sanity I’ll just list the 18!! * Rose Quartz * Delicious Pink * Rose Dust * Raspberry * Forever Heather * Absolute Plum * Red Passion * Cherry Pie * Creme Caramel * Soft Taupe * Pink Spice * Etrnl Cherry * Pink Goes On * Fuschia * Non Stop Orange * Steady Ready The dual ended lipstick comes in a large white tube not unlike a mascara tube. It’s just over 7 inches in length, with most the the tube in white with SuperStay 24H Colour in metallic silver and red font across the middle. The lipstick is at one end in a transparent hard plastic tube, showing off the colour, while the balm is at the opposite end in white casing. Maybelline claim: # No caking, drying, feathering, fading or flaking thanks to Micro-flex technology # All day, 24 hour colour Ingredients: ‘’’Step 1’’’ STEP 1: G2417 isododecane, trimethylsiloxysilicate, nylon-611/dimethicone copolymer, disteardimonium hectorite, ...

Benefit They're Real Double the Lip 08/04/2017

Double your Lip!

Benefit They're Real Double the Lip So, this is another newbie in my collection which I recently got 'Benefit: Double the Lip!' in Pink Thrills. I love lipstick, I’m fairly sure lipstick takes up most of the room in my makeup bag, purse and my makeup box, I really should review them. I usually always have at least one on me at all times, you know….just incase! Normally I’m a nude or dusty pink colour but I have got a nice selection of bright pinks and even one or two reds. I actually bought this shade by mistake, but at the time thought it was a nice colour, especially for summer so after realising my mistake I decided to keep it rather than swap it for the colour I originally wanted, which was ‘’’Nude Scandal’’’. What is it? So to explain the name “Double the Lip” aims to enhance the look of your natural lips and make them appear fuller. To achieve this Benefit have combined a liner and a lipstick into one tube. The lipstick and liner have been molded in a “custom teardrop shape” with the darker coloured liner on the tip of the tear drop which helps it line the outer lines of your lips, and the lighter coloured lipstick at the bottom, allowing it to fill the rest of your lip with colour. To achieve the look of fuller lips, Benefit have used one colour for lipstick, and the same colour a couple shades darker for the liner. Once applied the difference is very obvious and in my opinion unpleasant in the two colours as they create an ombre effect on the lips, but once rubbed and blended they mix very well ...

Moana (DVD) 01/04/2017

The Polynesian Princess!

Moana (DVD) ** Taking a break from my regular makeup reviews, I spent a couple days piecing together my first movie review! What is it? In the last couple years, Disney have changed the way they portray women in their stories. We once saw the need for a Knight in shining armour, waking the comatose princess with a kiss, or the handsome prince rescuing the poor slave girl from her awful family, and lets not forget, the princess locked away in a castle with a beast. Personally I never had a problem with these stories, but they have struck cords with a lot of people and although it doesn't personally offend me, I can understand why it could bother someone else. So, evolving with our own ever changing society Disney started making movies, and showing how strong women can be. Moana the new Polynesian Princess, shows exactly that. is set on the small island Motunui we watch as a young girl risks everything to defy her father and leave home to save her tribe. ' Released: ' 23 November 2016 (USA) ' Runtime: ' 1 hr 47 mins ' Rated: ' PG ' Directed by: ' Ron Clements, Don Hall, John Muskar, Chris Williams ' Budget: ' $ 100 million ' Gross intake :' $617.1 million Main Cast *'Auli’l Cravalho' - Moana *'Dwayne {The Rock} Johnson' - Maui *'Rachel House' - Gramma Tala (Cheif Tui’s mother, moana’s grandmother) *'Temuera Morrison' - Cheif Tui (Moanas father) *'Jemaine Clemant' - Tamatoe *'Nicole Sherzinger' - Sina (Moanas mother) *'Alan Tudyk' - HeiHei Story Set on the small island of ...

Benefit Posie Tint 31/03/2017

Blush for your lips, or lipstick for your cheeks?

Benefit Posie Tint What is it? So, Benefit have recently been doing a 4 mini's for 20euro deal in my local boots. I love benefit but their products can be pretty expensive! Although pretty small, I was happy to at least try a couple of the products as not only are the products expensive but they also have a great name! Part of the deal I got 4.0 ml bottle of PosieTint, 7.5 ml tube of brightening face primer, 3.0 g jar of eye brightening gel and 1.0 g tube of brow fibre gel! I hadn't tried any of those products before so I was pretty happy to get them and try them out! The PosieTint I am reviewing now is a tinted liquid designed to add colour to both your cheeks and lips! I was a bit sceptical at first, I was worried it wouldn't last, the colour might be bland, or the product was either too sticky like a lipstick, or too runny to blend, but I got to say I really like this product! Both full size and mini come in a nail polish style bottle, with a twist off top. The product is distributed with again, a nail polish style hard brush. Sounds weird I know, but trust me, it works! The lid is plain white plastic, sitting on top of a deep rose gold/ peach pink metallic coloured bottle, with a little solid pink coloured flower beneath the posie tint written in a white font. Like most cosmetics, the bottle came in a solid pink box with similar details as the bottle, but on the other three sides of the box were directions and information as follows: To use: Brush three strokes on the apple of each ...

Stila Colour Balm Lipstick 30/03/2017

Luxurious Lips!

Stila Colour Balm Lipstick What is it? So, back to it. After a break I’ve managed to jump back in! Very exciting!! I’m going to jump right back in by reviewing a brand new product and brand for me. I’ve already mentioned I’m a bit of a makeup lover, and have just added a couple more pieces to my nonstop collection. This product I’m reviewing in Stila: Colour Balm Lipstick in the colourEvangeline. So the Lipstick according to the website gives “a modern take on traditional lipstick”, referring to the fact that not only is a smooth, creamy and calming like a balm but also heavily pigmented like a real lipstick. The lipstick claims to keep lips feeling hydrated, and also soothe irritated lips with Peppermint oil in the ingredients. The lipstick comes in a silver, cylindrical twist up bullet style. The tubes are just under 4 inches long, and just over half an inch thick. A little touch I really love, is that the Stila logo in etched in the cap of the lipstick, and is the same colour as the lipstick inside. It a really beautiful design, which really emphasizes what the brand is really about. Stila claim to provide women with top quality products, which are designed to help us embrace individuality and to also help us create our own unique style. Another little detail which I absolutely adore is, on top of each cap is a small little mirror!! Ingredients: RICINUS COMMUNIS (CASTOR) SEED OIL, OLEIC/LINOLEIC/LINOLENIC POLYGLYCERIDES, POLYETHYLENE, SILICA, HYDROGENATED PALM KERNEL GLYCERIDES, ...

Sleek BareKissed Illuminator 23/01/2017

Illuminate! Illuminate! Illuminate!

Sleek BareKissed Illuminator What is it? This product, which I'm surprised hasn't been reviewed yet is the Sleek: BareKissed Illuminator in the shade Casablanca. As you'll all soon find out, I'm a bit of a makeup lover. I have copious and unnecessary amounts of make-up. Some I use, most I don't! I sinfully wear makeup everyday if I intend to leave the house. Sleek is starting to become a permanent fixture in my ever growing, ever changing make-up bag. The Illuminator or as it's most commonly referred - highlighter, is made to enhance your complexion, and to make areas such as your brow, cheekbones, center of chin and the bridge of your nose standout . This formula in particular is made to give your skin a slightly tinted, sun kissed glow, I have to say on first look, it looks really shimmery but once evened out does in fact give a beautiful, subtle "sunkissed" glow. It comes in 4 shades: * Cube - A coral/ pink shade * Casablanca - Deep pink shade * Pompeii - A brown shade * Monaco - Light brown/ grey shade Each shade comes in a 30ml, frosted glass bottle with the Sleek logo and product info on the front and back. It has a Matte Black/ frosted plastic lid and underneath is a pump to distribute the product in small dollops. Sleek, as far as I've noticed anyway DOES NOT test on animals. On the back Versatile liquid illuminator adds a touch of luminosity to the skin. Directions for use: Wear alone, mix with or layer over foundation to illuminate features. Ingredients: Aqua, Dimethicone, ...

Naobay HydraPlus Cream 22/01/2017

Organic Beauty!

Naobay HydraPlus Cream What is it? The product I'm reviewing is called Naobay HydraPlus Cream. So if you're like me, and have never heard of Naobay before I'll fill you in a little. So Naobay is an acronym as it turns out, it stands for "Natural and Organic Beauty and You". It's a family-founded business who revolve around clean and fresh cosmetics. The big thing in cosmetics and beauty this year, and perhaps from now on is rumored to be the little talked about "Farm to your Face" trend. Cosmetics and skincare with little or no chemicals, no GMO and no badness, Sustainable Beauty. Naobay are doing exactly this, all their products are GMO free, and also free from parabens, petrochemicals, silicone, formaldehyde and any other chemical which may be bad for your skin or the environment. The brand is also Eco-conscious, the use recycled or recyclable products to create their packaging and DO NOT test on animals! So, enough of that. I'll tell you about the product now! The product is a moisturizer, specially formulated for "deep-down skin moisturizing action". I received a sample size of the product which is 30ml, compared to the full size which is 50ml. The full size comes in a matte white bottle, with a cedar wood style lid. In their full size products they use pumps for the products. On the back HydraPlus Cream was specially formulated for deep-down skin moisturizing action, particularly thanks to Sage extract, which boasts water-retaining skin properties. In addition to Olive* oil, ...
