Review: Most Wanted & Dancing Till Dusk

Hello everyone and welcome back to another review of some of the products I received at the Deise Bloggers event back in August. I apologise for how long it’s taking me to get through everything but when you’ve got a full time job and other commitments, blogging sometimes has to take a halt. I’ve been dying to write this post as I will be reviewing the Art Deco Most Wanted Contouring Palette and the Sleek Make-Up Dancing till Dusk Palette. These two products have become the most used items in my make-up bag since the event. Keep reading to find out why!

Review: Salon Acrylic French Nails by Kiss

Hello everyone and welcome back to another review on The Ciara Chronicles! In today’s post, I will be reviewing the Salon Acrylic French Nails by Kiss stick-on nails, a product I received at the Deise Bloggers event back in August. As I go through phases of getting my nails done, doing my own nails, leaving bits of nail polish on my nails for weeks or not doing anything with my nails at all, it’s taken me a bit of time to get around to trying out these.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last two or three months, you probably have heard of Ireland’s latest favourite tan, Bellamianta. The one and only, Suzanne Jackson from So Sue Me was raving about it so, I guess we all had to jump on the bandwagon and see what the hype was about. As I had only recently purchased the Bondi Sands Tan prior to the Bellamianta hype, I was a bit reluctant to buy it as they’re not exactly cheap but after my mother buying and applying it before her holidays, I knew I had to give it a go. Keep reading to find out how I got on.

Look at those brows!

You may have seen on my Facebook page that I got HD Brows done by the wonderful Maria in Aura recently. I’ve been going to Aura for as long as I can remember and Maria even did my tan, nails and make-up for the first Debutante Ball I went to back in 2009. I also completed my work experience there back in 2013 when I was studying Beauty Therapy. I think it’s clear to see that I just won’t go anywhere else for my beauty treatments, even though I’m qualified in the majority of them myself. It’s just always nicer to get your treatments done by somebody else!

Review: Cailyn Super HD Pro Coverage Foundation


If you’ve read my previous post reviewing the Bondi Sands Tan and Glove Your Body Mitts, you’ll know that I’m quite fond of Mulligans Pharmacy, especially the one on the Dunmore Road here in Waterford (seriously – go there! It’s fab!). I think they’re pretty aware of how much I love their pharmacy as the lovely Daryl, a staff member of Mulligans Pharmacy, got in contact with me and was kind enough to send out the Cailyn Super HD Pro Coverage Foundation in shade 03 Rosso to see what I thought of it. Let’s see how I got on…
