Among the perks of working in one of Ireland’s top magazines is the many cosmetics that are sent into our beauty team to try out. Here’s what VIP Towers rates this week.
Claudia – the Joystick eyeliner and smudger
Tv presenter Claudia Winkleman has teamed up with Marks & Spencers for a new beauty range and, although we first thought it was quite a random concept, we were instantly won over. We tried ‘the Game Changer’, which consists of a black eyeliner pencil and smudger stick (€10.00). It was easy to apply, and gave a sexy smoky eye. We also adore the ‘Clever Girl’ make up bag, which costs €17.
Too Faced – Better Than Sex mascara
This little beauty (€23.00) has had our eyelashes fluttering all week. An intensely black, volumizing mascara with an hourglass-shaped brush that separates, coats, and curls each lash to voluptuous perfection, after three coats it looked like we were wearing falsies.
Isadora – Gold Eyes Palette
This limited edition eyeshadow set is basically all you need for the Christmas party season! Costing just €21.75, it includes a blending brush to smudge and blend the eyes with muted hues of rose gold, and line with deep chocolate tones. Subtle, yet gorgeous.
