I have been using the Lift Activ Serum 10 for 6 weeks now so I think its time for a review. It comes in this lovely sleek sliver box and bottle with a button style dropper applicator. You simply pust the button down and it releases a single drop. I find this great as you will use just the right amount, there is no waste or applying too much product either and it will probably save you money in the long run.
Vichy claim that this little pot of magic will do two things:
1. In 10 minutes wrinkles appear visibly reduce & skin texture feels transformed: softer and velvety smooth skin, pores look reduced
2. In 1 month advanced anti-wrinkle efficancy, long-lasting lifiting feel
Now I didn't really notice a difference after 10 mins but I think that's due to the fact I don't have many wrinkles (as of yet anyway). However after long term use I have noticed that my skin is very smooth and looks alot brighter.
I don't know if I will repurchase straight away but I do like this product.

So I have been doing a bit of shopping this week and I thought I would show you what I bought. If you would like a full review on any of the products just let me know in the comment section below. The first item I got was this gorgeous candle and its actually from Pennys and cost €4. There are three fragrances available (I got Powder Room). I love the tins they come it and I think they look really good . The fragrance doesn't really last too long but they still look really pretty.
I have heard great things about this Benefit Erase Paste and as I suffer from really bad dark under eye circles I have being dying to get my hands on it. It comes in 3 colours shades, Fair, Medium and Dark and costs €27.50 approx. It is available from Benefit Counters nationwide.
Next is my favourite hair brush. Its the Denman D3 Medium styling brush with 7 rows of nylon pins. It has an anti-static rubber pad that provides maxium grip and control during blow-drying. I have being using this for years and it never breaks or pulls my hair. They are about €10 available from pharmacies nationwide.
So I popped into MAC...and bought 3 new lipsticks as I am building up my kit. I got the colour of the summer which is this gorgeous neon matte pink (MAC Candy Yum Yum). Then I got this beautiful spiked up Plum (MAC Odyssey) and frosted light coral (MAC Coral Bliss). Can't wait to try them all. (Swatches Below). Available from MAC counters €18.
I am really loving these new Revlon Super Lustrous lipgloss at the moment. They are a silky gloss that boosts hydration and plumps lips with a beautiful glamorous shine. I got 3..Kiss me coral (not shown), Super Natural and Berry Allure. They also have an SPF 15..Very handy in this gorgeous weather
And last but not least since it is sandal season I decided to invest in some new nail polish colours for the summer. I really love the Barry M polishes and especially the new Gelly Hi Shine Nail Paint. I got Prickly Pear and Papaya. Prickly Pear is a pale lilac colour and Papaya as the name suggests is a peach/coral shade. Its bright without been neon which I love. You can pick them up in pharmacies nationwide for €5/6 approx.
I was asked had I any tips for makeup for ladies day at the Races. As with your outfit choose a makeup look that you are comfortable with. The judges will be looking for the most appropriately dressed lady on the day so the same applies to your makeup. It’s a race meeting not a night out. You don’t have to use a full coverage make-up masking your skin. Choose a radiant finish foundation that is more suitable for summer. They will also take grooming into consideration be it tan, hair and nails!
