I love the Make Up For Ever store on Clarendon Street. It’s an Aladdin’s cave for makeup lovers. Not only is it the only place in Dublin that you can get the mega products produced by the brand but they also have some really cool pro products that are hard to find. They sell the best sponges, mascara wands, brushes (my favourite lip brush is from there, I have it since I started doing makeup in 1843 and it’s still perfect) and of course tonnes of fabulous makeup!!
The products are designed firstly for makeup artists, meaning that the quality is second to none. Their lasting power and colour payoff are incredible. The innovation in product development is rarely matched.
Coming next month are Artist Acrylip, inspired by the bold and intense shades of acrylic paints but with the this and stretchy texture of body paints. These products actually made me squeak a little when I saw the press release.
There are ten highly pigmented shades in the range that come with a slanted sponge applicator that ensures a smooth application. I really can’t wait to try these out!
