NEW PERFUMES 2019 SCENTS TO TRY THIS CHRISTMAS

YSL Beauty’s much anticipated fragrance has been a long time in the making. Master perfumers, Anne Flipo and Carlos Benaim turned a masculine scent structure into something undeniably feminine. Orange Blossom, Lavender create balance, but a spiciness comes from vanilla and amber. This has a lot of structure, kind of like a fine wine. I’m a fan. WHY YOU WILL LIKE: There is floral and spicy notes but none overwhelm the other. If you like a classic scent, this is…

FIVE FOUNDATIONS UNDER €20

We got through a lot of make up, and if you wear it every day it’s hard to justify spending a lot of money on a foundation – sure you’d be buying one every week. I’ve been researching foundations this month to identify my favourites that won’t break the bank. So here are my top five foundations under €20: MAYBELLINE DREAM URBAN COVER This landed on my desk last week and I have been wearing it ever since. It has…

LORNA’S LIST 28th JUNE 2019

You are probably wondering what on earth is this post about? Let me give you the back story. When I started the blog at the end of 2009, I changed the format so many times to try new things. I reported on news, trends and I still continue to do that, but what when I made my blog more of a business, my approach had to adapt. That’s logical considering the electricity bill needs to be paid and I need…

In my last skincare post, I had my first session of Micro Needling (which you can read here). Well today was the next step; this one had a little difference. I won’t go into how Micro Needling works as it’s all in my last blog post with no major change. But! Today I also had…

WHAT IS THE DEAL WITH FILLER
Dublin

WHAT IS THE DEAL WITH FILLER

When you hear the word filler what’s the first thing you think of? Up until a few weeks ago, I probably thought the same as you. Bigger lips, fuller cheeks and even the insert to your eyebrows. I’ve known several people in my personal life and those I follow online who have had some kind of filler and the results have been amazing. Whether they did for vanity or confidence, they look good. I have also seen some awful jobs,…
