I definitely inherited my love of make up from my mum. She loves buying cosmetics as much as I do and sometimes she is generous enough to buy me a few things!
She knew I was really excited about the Alber Elbaz collection for Lancome, she picked me up the Lancome Hypnose Star mascara. I have never used Hypnose Star but I have used Hypnose and Drama. I tried this one for the first time today and I am really impressed!
Here is a photo of me with one eye 'naked' and one with one coat of Hypnose Star. Since I'm red haired, my lashes are naturally blonde so I look like I have none without mascara so it's really important for me!
Since I passed my exam a few weeks ago, she brought me to Mink in Ballsbridge for a pedi. We both went for a 'Marine Pedicure'. I have only been to Mink Donnybrook before. This one is soooo much bigger. In my opinion it's nicer, I would try to go here if it's much of a muchness between the two.
This was my mum's first ever pedi and I think she's hooked! I feel like a drug pusher, she's already planning her next visit! I would put a photo of my finished pedi but my feet are not pretty! I got a hot pink shade and am really happy with the cuticle work etc. Really nice treat.
At the till, she treated me to Essie's 'In the Cab-ana' and OPI's Avoplex Cuticle Oil on the Go. What I really like about the Avoplex is it makes it so much easier to apply. I already have CND's Solar Oil but this is a bit more handy.
I haven't got any turquoise polishes so I thought this one looked pretty!
