Match Made in Heaven: Irresistible Me Diamond Hair Styling Iron*

It`s no secret that I`m a very clumsy person, so for years, I had to stay away from curlers or straighteners. I would always burn either my hand or forehead and in the days when I was extremely lucky, both of them. I have the patience of a baby and one of the reasons I can`t keep my hair long is that I don`t know what to do with it. In my mind I always picture myself with some cool hairstyles, but getting them is a different thing. Now the length is somewhere in the middle and I like it that way because it`s easy to style, but it won`t take you forever to do it.

When Madison from Irresistible Me got in touch and talked about a future collaboration, I got extremely excited. I have heard only positive reviews about this brand and most people seemed to love their hair extensions or hair accessories. But the thing that got me really intrigued was their Diamond Hair Styling Iron. There are a few bloggers that I follow on a daily basis and I trust their opinion and the feedback for this straightener was so good; I had to try it.
 Tourmaline Hair Straightener

The styling iron came in a sleek, black cardboard box; it`s a stylish packaging and it looks very professional. It arrived in less than a week, which was a pleasant surprise, considering the company`s headquarters are in New York. Before sending me the tool, Madison told me I would need an adapter, so I got one from Poundland and I was ready to test it properly as soon as it arrived.

Like I said earlier, I`m not the most patient person in the world, so I think it`s great that the iron needs only a few seconds to heat up. The maximum temperature is 230C, but the best part is the fact that you can play with the temperature variations, thus avoiding hair damage. Made with ceramic plates, it will last a long time and it won`t cheap or get damaged easily.
(excuse the messy room, we are in the process of moving and there are things everywhere)

My hair is thin and frizzy, so I was very happy to see that the straightener has a function that stops that. It was very easy to use and it left my hair shiny and smooth, without that awful burnt smell you sometimes get from this kind of tools. (you know, the cheap irons that don`t do anything for your hair other than frying it like a spring roll) The plates are quite thin and I think it will be very easy to create some curls with them, so that`s what I`ll probably do next.

This magic tool costs 149$, which would likely be around 105-110£, an excellent price for such an amazing tool. It`s lightweight, easy to use and gets the job done in a few seconds, so no complaints there. The materials and the technology they used are top-notch, it`s a sound investment.

How much is my face worth?

I have avoided writing this post for such a long time; it`s a joke! I know some of you might wonder why I`m doing it if I don`t want to. Well, the answer to that is simple. I want to know how bad the situation is and feel horrible about it, but I also want you to tell me that it`s OK, cause the products you used are ten times more expensive than mine. Yeah, I`m that type of person...Sad, I know. So without further ado, let`s talk business. As a beauty blogger/junkie I have many products, but today I`ll feature only the products that are part of my daily makeup routine. Also, I have skipped the moisturiser because even though it`s a must, it`s a skincare product. And I`ll also have 15£ less when I do the total, so there`s that. And because I`m a bad person, I won`t mention the tools either.

Mac Studio Sculpt Foundation - 24.50£
Kiko Glowing Potion - 13.90£ (limited edition, not available anymore)
Mac Pro Longwear Concealer - 17.50£
Makeup Revolution Redemption Palette Iconic 3 - 4£
Essence Lash Princess Mascara - 3.30£
Barry M Brow Kit - 5.99£
Essence Long Lasting Lipstick - 2.30£
Makeup Revolution Contour Kit - 3.50£
Makeup Revolution Baked Blush - 2.50£

And the total is 77.49, which is amazing considering the Mac products alone are 42£. Obviously, sometimes I use other or more products, but I think that even with those my total is less than 100£, which is great. If any of you wrote a post like this, send me your links, I`d love to see your results. Don`t forget to leave a comment, I always reply. (even if it`s a bit late due to my stupid internet)

P.S. I did not see the Studio Sculpt Foundation on Mac`s website, does anyone know if it`s been discontinued? I hope not, it`s my favourite full cover foundation and the only one that does not give me breakouts, so I`ll be extremely upset if I can`t buy it anymore.


The Body Shop Skinny Felt Eyeliner Review

I have been blogging for a while now, and it`s been a hell of a ride. Beauty blogging means that you are tempted to buy every new release and eat bagels and still water for a week, until your next payday. On top of that, your room probably looks like the warehouse for Boots or Sephora. Yes, beauty blogging meant a lot of unnecessary purchases for me, but it also taught me a thing or two. I now know how to contour, highlight and even use eyeliner. I can probably do a perfect flick 5-6 times per year, but let`s not get tangled in details. For months, my go-to product was Supercat from Soap&Glory, but I wanted to try something different, so I got this little guy from The Body Shop.

This eyeliner is very easy to use and even if you`re not the most precise person, you can still draw an even line. It does last for a couple of good hours, around 6-7, without smudging. I got the black version, and it is very pigmented, with somewhat of a glossy finish. I quite like that, to be honest, but there are a lot of other problems with this product. First of all, it`s not waterproof, and that`s an inconvenience for my watery eyes. I also live in London and 5 out of 7 days, it`s raining, so I have to be very careful when I use this. Also, while it does not smudge, it does take a while to dry completely out, so that`s another inconvenience for me.

Overall, I am not that impressed with this eyeliner. I know it`s only 10£, but you can find cheaper and better alternatives. It`s a shame to be honest because I really like the finish, but the fact that it`s not waterproof is a deal breaker for me. 

I think I`ll buy Supercat again, but if you have any other recommendations for a drugstore eyeliner, don`t hesitate to tell me. Also, let me know if you`ve tried this product before and if you liked it or not.
