Vamped


Funnily enough my berry themed clothes obsession has transferred to my make up and perfume choices! This post includes a few berry-hued favourites that I have purchased recently or have been lovin' long time!  

The perfume is a long time love, with both the Bourjois eye shadow and the Rimmel 'Starry-eyed' lipstick being recent purchases. 


I have been stuck in a funk eye shadow wise of late. I've had the Naked 2 Palette since April of last year and have not deviated from it since (no seriously whether it be for day wear, a night out or an occasion I have used the palette EVERY TIME). So I thought why not get something new? I was very drawn to the Bourjois Paris Colour Edition 24h Eyeshadow range as they have the perfect amount of shimmer for this time of year without over kill. They have lovely colours to choose from, with this gorgeous hue aptly named 'Prune Nocturne'. 

It has a light creamy texture and a beautiful metallic sheen. I wore it out over the weekend and applied it with my ring finger. It holds very well and did not budge for the night - and it was a long one! It goes on easily and gives a great smokey eyed look - my favourite kind of night time look!




The Rimmel lipstick in 'Starry-eyed' is a moisturising rich plum shade in a dark case (this was a plus as I hate their shiny purple case lipsticks). I had been searching for the perfect deep plum shade for the longest time and I am delighted with it. I think it is my perfect personal shade!

I have yet to wear it out but I have no doubt it will be used throughout the upcoming party season to make a statement with a more neutral eye look.

My final 'vampy' favourite is Dior's Poison. This is in fact belonged to my Mom but we have an unsaid agreement of perfume swapping, which is great because she has a great collection! I am a serious lover of musky perfumes no matter what time of year but particularly during the winter season as they suit the hot/cold temperatures and make a sexy fragrance for nights out.

Have ye any winter favourites year in year out or any recent purchases ye are lovin? I would love to hear!

Also Aoife and I will be heading to Dublin for the next few days so expect a bundle of posts next week, mainly outfit posts I think!

  1. Berry is one of my favorite colors, it's just so fall appropriate. Never heard Bourjois before, will have to check them out. Also, Hypokrite cosmetics makes a beautiful berry lipstick called "Bella Muerte".
