beauty product review


If like us you completely refuse to accept that the summer is over, this week’s Beauty Product of The Week will bring a smile to your not-so-sun kissed face. The cold season has appeared from nowhere it seems, and us summer-lovers are dreading the effects it might have on our complexion.

We need a saviour- something that will help us keep our glow as the days get short and sunny afternoons seem like a distant memory. This is where Bondi Sands comes in. With their brand-new range of ‘GLO’ products, you can hang on to your summer glow this autumn. 

The new range is perfect for busy ladies (and gentlemen) who wish to glow up instantly. With three new instant tan products: Gloss, Matte and Shimmer, Bondi Sands has your sunless tanning needs covered. This gorge new range blurs the lines between self-tan and makeup, providing instant colour and texture that lasts. With shimmering colour and high shine luminosity, Bondi Sands Glo smooths out imperfections and is customisable for the face and body.

GLO MATTE ONE DAY TAN: Think Australian Summer, bottled. GLO matte will give you a natural beach babe tan, providing instant lustre and matte colour to skin. The skin perfecting formula can be used to top up both natural or self-tan, or to contour the face and body with a bronzing brush. 

GLO SHIMMER ONE DAY TAN: For that lit-from-within glow, GLO shimmer one day tan is infused with light reflecting particles to highlight, giving you a glistening bronzed finish. Buff across the collarbone, cheekbones, eyelids and beyond, to enhance your skin’s natural radiance.  Alternatively, mix with foundation to customise your glow and add a delicate sheen to your skin.

GLO GLOSS FINISHING GLOW: Worn on top of GLO Shimmer, GLO Matte or alone, GLO gloss finishing glow delivers both colour and texture to create a bronzed dewy look. A definite beauty bag essential, the reflective high-shine formula highlights your face and body, adorning your skin with radiance.

Transporting the Australian summer is what Bondi Sands do best, and as the gloomy Irish winter approaches, the new GLO range is JUST what the doctor ordered to keep us looking glowy and sun-kissed.

Pick up your Bondi Sands ‘GLO’ products today for just €11.99. Available at Cloud10beauty, Lloyds, McCauley’s and independent pharmacies nationwide.




L.A beauty brand Wet n Wild has finally crossed the Atlantic and found a new home on Irish shelves.

With Fergie as a global ambassador and a celeb following that includes Rachel Bilson, Mila Kunis and Minka Kelly, we were very excited to hear we’d have constant access to this exciting range of budget-friendly make-up.

We put our beauty writer, Odette, on the case to test some of Wet n Wild’s best loved products and here’s what she thought:

CoverAll cream foundation
This will have you covered all day (and all night if you need it to!). I applied it first with my fingertips and then buffed into the skin with a brush. The result was a perfectly smooth, matte and airbrushed-like finish. This foundation covers a myriad of sins with ease and gives medium-to-full coverage, leaning more towards full coverage, in my opinion. It would be best suited for normal to oily skin types, and will keep shiny skin at bay!

MegaSlicks balm stains
This glides over your lips like a dream and leaves them soft, plumped and moisturised. The shade I used was E128, which is a lovely soft, pearly pink colour with a subtle gold iridescence. This would be a great everyday lip stain, giving you a hint of colour and shine. This stain sits beautifully on your lips and won’t leave them feeling dry or cracked.

MegaLast lip colour
Once this lipstick is in place, it’s not moving. It’s a long-wearing (4 hour) lip colour that gives your lips the “wow factor”. I tried Sugar Plum Fairy, which is a beautiful deep plum colour with purple-red undertones – perfect for a dramatic night time lip. Although I loved the colour, the formula was a little drying, so a lip gloss or lip balm over top is a must.
