Hi Foxy Ladies…. 😉
It’s fair to say our love of makeup has increased tenfold over the last number of years. Gone are the days when you could fit all your makeup in a pencil case sized makeup bag, we now have drawers full of the stuff. Social media has definitely had impact on this as well as the increased availability of makeup classes and courses.
I love trying out new brands and while my makeup collection is a mix of different brands I previously wouldn’t have tried many less expensive ones. I always worried that they may not be up to scratch or I won’t like them and I’ve just spent my hard earned cash. Now however, with the rise of bloggers trialing and reviewing products for us, pharmacy makeup brands are in the spotlight and on the rise. One of my favourites being NYX. I’m obsessed with their lipsticks and happened to mention to Michelle that I was having trouble finding stockists when she told me about Simply Foxy
Simply Foxy are an online site that sell a range of beauty products that will be delivered straight to your door. This is a complete godsend for me, as some of you may know I live out in the countryside, so don’t have easy access to the shops. While I thought my maternity leave would consist of loads of days out with me and the baby shopping, it’s far from the truth. Most of my shopping trips now are to get my food shopping and if I’m lucky enough to do some actual shopping it can be hard work with a baby. This is why online shopping is perfect for me.
Simply Foxy sell some of my favorite pharmacy brands, NYX, Sleek Makeup, Rimmel, Cocoa Brown and now Flomar!
See below for some of Michelle and my top picks from our favourite brands;
NYX round lipstick – €5.49
I love the staying power of these lipsticks and the range of colours rivals that of MAC. Given the quality and price of these I don’t think I’ll ever pay more €20 for a lipstick again.
Stay Matte But Not Flat powder foundation – €10.99
For years I’ve used MAC studio fix pressed powder as a finishing powder over my foundation. I’ve now replaced it with this and at a third of the price what’s not to love.
The perfect accompaniment to the round lipsticks and again with a fabulous range of shades.
NYX Wonder Pencil – €5.99
With so many uses it’s not called the wonder pencil for nothing! Can be used to conceal blemishes, perfect brows and prevent lipstick bleeding!
Sleek Brow Kit – €9.99
This compact brow kit is such a handy item. With it’s two shades, tweezers and angled brush included your eyebrows will be on point. I purchased this for my sister and she loves it!
Matte Me Lipgloss – €6.49
I had this in my kit in red for a few weeks before I got round to trying it, as I tend to wear reds more in summer. My previous red lip go to was YSL lipstick which isn’t cheap, so I was chuffed with how brilliant this was. I was completely surprised by the coverage and strength of colour for a lipgloss. I’ll be sticking with this from now on!
Flormar Perfect Coverage Foundation – €10.99
Michelle absolutely loves the amazing coverage provided by this foundation. She loves a foundation that is long lasting, with full coverage and this is exactly what she has found with this Flormar Find! You’ll no doubt know what a fan she is of Estee Lauder Double Wear but has now replaced it with Flormar Perfect Coverage Foundation. Isn’t the coverage amazing….
I’ll be picking up my bottle soon!
Flormar Double Radiance Primer – €12.95
This is the perfect primer for under your foundation to help give you more staying power and leave you with a radiant glow. It can be worn on your skin without any foundation if you are having a make up free day to give you a gorgeous glow, used under your foundation as a Primer or what Michelle does is mixes one pump of it with her foundation before applying to give her an all over glow.
She reccommends to avoid any areas where there are blemishes as this product will only highlight these areas.
Flormar Terracotta Powders – €12.99
The dual gold is perfect for contouring & highlighting by using either side, but is also fab as an all over bronzing powder. The marbled pink can be used as a blush or to give an all over glow. The Terracotta Powder is also available in 2 other shades! Its dome shaped and will last you more than likely for years!!
These lipsticks are true to the name and we love the assortment of bright colours and stand out shades. Michelle is particulary obsessed with shade L09 at the moment..
Check out the long wearing liners to at just €3.99.
Flormar Nail Enamels – €2.99
These polishes come highly recommended and at that price you’d have to pick up a few!! Michelle is loving the Khaki Green shade at the moment and there are over 60 shades to choose from, some being Regular, some being Jelly Look, and theres even a quick dry range & Matte range too! Trust me, there is a Colour For Every You in the range on Simply Foxy!
Long Lasting Finish Foundation – €10.29
This foundation is one of my go to daytime foundations. I like to go with a more natural look most days so this blends perfectly with my skin giving just the right amount of coverage without being too heavy.
Sun Shimmer €5.00
An oldie but a goodie who doesn’t have a bottle of this for when you need a last minute tan!
It’s not just makeup the site stocks. You’ll also find a range of hair (The Wet Brush hair brushes are a huge hit with Michelle and she uses nothing else now!) & beauty products, fragrances, mum and baby essentials and even some grooming products for the men in our lives. You name it, they got it!
