New In Beauty - Collab With Róisín

Today is a very exciting blogpost, it's actually my first blog collab. It's with a lovely gal called Róisín which you probably already know and love if you're into reading Irish blogs. So as soon as you finish reading my blogpost head straight over to Róisín's blog called 'Totally Ró' to give her 'New In Beauty' post a read. 

I've known Róisín since towards the start of blogging, so that's been a while! She messaged me a few months ago and we decided to do a 'New In' beauty blogpost. You'd actually be surprised how many products you collect up over the space of a month or two. I had a lot more than this but I decided to narrow it down because otherwise we'd be here for days. So we'll be chatting all about the beauty products we've bought recently and that are new to us.

Garnier Moisture Bomb Tissue Mask 
I heard so much about the Moisture Bomb range from Garnier and especially this sheet mask as it is one of the only affordable drugstore ones out there. This was reduced when I was in Boots one day so I had to pick it up and try it out. Now I can't tell you what I think about this mask and how it worked because I haven't used it yet but I have heard from multiple people that it's lovely and moisturising so I can't wait to give it a go.

Soap & Glory Scrub Of Your Life 
On St. Stephen's Day I went a bit wild in Boots on the half priced gift sets and one of the things I picked up was a Soap & Glory set that included this scrub. I haven't always been a fan of body scrubs as they are sometimes very harsh on the skin but this one has much smaller beads in it so it is much softer on the skin. I love using this to get off the remainder of gradual tan or just to deeply cleanse the skin and it has the amazing signature Soap & Glory scent which is fab. 
Sanctuary Spa White Lily & Damask Rose Body Wash 
As I said earlier I went a a little mad when it came to the gift sets and this product was in one of the sets. You might have seen the body butter in this range in my recent favourites post. I have yet to use this but if it's anything like the body butter I think I will love it. It has a really fresh rose sent that isn't too floral. I can't wait to use this.

The Body Shop Coconut Body Butter 
I have always wanted to try the famous body butters from The Body Shop. I adore coconut scented and flavour things so I knew that the coconut one was the one I had to try first. This has a gorgeous sweet coconut scent and it's quite a thick consistency but it melts into the skin so quickly. It leaves my skin really nourished and smooth so I absolutely love using it. I definitely understand the hype behind these now! 
Cocoa Brown Goddess Oil Trio 
As a human milk bottle I was so delighted to hear the release of a new goddess oil from Cocoa Brown called Ice Goddess. As you can probably guess it's a white, pearl body oil. I personally don't use the rose gold oil by itself because I am way too pale for that but I love mixing it with the ice goddess oil to lighten it. I love using these as highlighters either on top or underneath of makeup. I always use this on my legs and shoulders when I go out to look extra glowy.

Jimmy Choo Blossom Perfume 
I actually got this as a present fro my relatives for my birthday and it has quickly become my go to everyday perfume. It's a gorgeous floral and fruity scented perfume that isn't too strong or heavy. It has notes of citrus, raspberry and rose so you can guess it's a very feminine fragrance. I always spritz this on especially when I don't want to wear a heavy perfume and it has quickly become one of my favourites.  
L'Oreal True Match Foundation  C1 Rose Ivory
I used this foundation years ago and I really wanted to try it again because of all the hype I've heard around it recently. If you follow me on Snapchat you would have seen me do a first impression of this last week and I really like it. It was a medium buildable coverage but not at all heavy or cake looking. The only thing I didn't like about it was the fact that it's a little too dark and it's the lightest colour, pale people problems.

L'Oreal Infallible Fixing Mist 
When I ran out of my beloved Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray I was in two minds whether or not to pick it up again because it is expensive but it does work fantastically. I decided I'd try something else beforeI repurchased it and I picked this one up because L'Oreal was 2 for €15 the day I was in Boots.  I haven't used this too much yet so I don't have a full opinion about it but so far so good with it anyway. 
Sleek Diamonds In The Rough Eyeshadow Palette - iLust 
As soon as I saw advertisements for this palette I knew I had to get my hands on it. I had my eyes on this eyeshadow for a while but was always sold out so when there was one left in stock one day in Boots I thought it was a sign. I love using a really shimmery eyeshadow on my lid whenever I'm creating any eye look. Although the powder shadows aren't amazing by themselves, once layered over the cream shadows in the palette they look amazing.You may have seen this featured in a recent makeup tutorial.

 Mac Lipstick - Patisserie 
I think we all have a long list of Mac lipsticks we want to buy and this was on my list. This is a gorgeous sheer pinky nude which is perfect for a day or night look. Whenever I don't know what to put on my lips I always throw this on as it goes with everything and is very comfortable on the lips. It's definitely one to have a look at if you've never herd about it before. 
I hope you enjoyed reading this post. Make sure to head over to Róisín's blog to see her new in beauty products which you can find here. Also send her some love on her social media, TwitterInstagram and Róisín's snapchat is @totally_ro.

    1. Setting sprays literally change your makeup, it stays so much longer and makes it look so great, highly reccomend trying one out! Just make sure to shake it well before using it so the powders will mix up into the liquid.
