S/S 2013 Products with Sally Hansen, Rimmel and NYC

I love getting invited to events, especially with people I really like. My fave PR lady Fiona had to come up to Belfast for some business so while she was here, she arranged for some beauty bloggers to have a little nosey at the new products from NYC, Sally Hansen and Rimmel. Fiona is so generous and frequently sends me NYC products to try out. Despite their super cheap price tag, these products are amazing quality. In particular, their mascaras are a definite must try. She held the little get together in the lovely Paddy McGurgan's Make Up Pro Store (I'm pretty sure at this point Paddy is sick of looking at me!!!). She had Paddy explain how we could use the products for this seasons gorgeous looks. The best bit of advice he gave was to not over powder your face. This season is all about dewy, gorgeous and flawless skin without having numerous products packed on. He encouraged us all to try out products and not to be afraid of makeup- he said you won't always get it right but there is no harm in having some fun or trying!
Here are some pictures of my favourite products:


LOVED these two colours. Pedal to the Metal by Sally Hansen and Summer Orange by Rimmel Salon Pro

I also loved this Rimmel Apocalips- they describe it as a "lip lacquer"

 I loved these two Tiffany blue colours- perfect for Spring
Some Rimmel mascaras I am excited to try
And now on to my outfit. I got ready in such a hurry. I didn't have time to straighten my hair so I threw it up and had very minimal makeup on (L'Oreal CC cream is my saviour!). I had dealt with my leg bleeding for 30 minutes when I had come out of the shower. Always the most inappropriate time to get a razor cut! As for my outfit, I wore a green shirt by Primark, black and white trousers by Primark and my favourite Zara shoes. Casual but still dressy.


Also here is a cute pic of me and my blogging BFF Sara from Belfast Beauty Love. Tall girls united!

All these products are in store now so I would encourage you to go and have a nosey. The great thing about "drug store" beauty is that they now can make products so quickly to copy the colours of bigger, more expensive brands. This means you can stay on trend for very little money and experiment to your heart is content!
