Irresistible Me Diamond Hair Straightner | Review

Hey :) I'm really excited to share with you this straightener today because I love it and have been using it non stop since the day I got it. It's by the brand Irresistible Me and they kindly sent it to me so I could try it out and tell all of you how I've got on with it. Up to now I love it and love the design of this straightener and how it much so that I've actually thrown my other one away haha. First of all I'm gonna talk about how cool the whole box is! Probably one of the nicest packaged hair tools I've ever received, also the box tells you pretty much everything you need to know about the straightener and comes with a little guide book too which gives you information on what heat settings to use for your hair type in case your unsure.

The straighter includes:
- Diamond Nano Hi-Tech Plates
- Heat resistant cover
- Buttons on the inside of the straightener to control the heat settings and turn on and off
- Auto Shut Off
- Fast Heat Up
- 360 Cord
- Light Weight
- Grip at the top
- Maximum temp of 230c

I think that this is one of the best and well designed hair straighteners ever! They have thought of everything to make it the best it can possibly be and yes I can confirm that all of the above are true.
I think my favourite features to this is that the plates have grip to them and have a heat resistant cover, which means I'm now able to straighten and curl my hair without it slipping out my fingers or burning myself which actually happens to me a lot.

Okay so in these photos below is my 100% natural hair, I'd washed it the night before and had let it dry naturally and this is what I always do. As you cans see my hair is pretty straight naturally, but it does go wavy and very frizzy too.
The heat setting I used was 170 because my hair is quite thick. To straighten my whole hair it only took me around 5/6 mins (i'm not kidding).
The straightener is so easy to use and doesn't pull or tug on your hair when using it, my hair just glides smoothly through it causing me no pain which i'm sure if you use hair curlers/straighteners yourself you can relate to.

And this is what my hair looks like when it's all been straightened (I'm sorry if your tired of reading that word now) without styling or adding any product in it. I have used this so many times and my hair stays the same all day and can last up to 2 days on me. I have also used this to curl my hair and it curls it really well and they also last a really long time, the only thing i'll do differently is change the heat settings to a slightly higher one. But if you'd like to see how I curl my hair with a straightener then click HERE.

I honestly can't fault this straightener and I'll be sure to continue to use it. If you'd like me to write another post using this straightener, maybe on a few hairstyles you can achieve with this then let me know :)

Have you tried Irresistible Me products before?

Maybelline 24 HR Colour Tattoo

Hey :) I've noticed that it's been a while since I've talked about makeup, so that's what I'm gonna do today...So like posts I've done before I'd always gather a few products together and write mini reviews for them all but today I wanted to focus on just one product which are the Maybelline Colour Tattoo's. Now your probably thinking 'But Millie, these have been out for years why have you only just discovered them now?' Yeah, you're right I know I'm late on the hype but it doesn't mean everyone and their mum has tried it before, does it? Anyway I'll get on with it now :)

 'Pink Gold' (I think they may have changed the name) +  'On & On Bronze'
First Impressions:
I actually am not too keen on the packaging of these, I like that they come in a glass pot and that the front is pretty and it's clear to know which colour is what, but the bottom is too big and chunky for me. Anyone that owns one of these will know what I mean but to me it looks like they've kept a big chunk of see through glass at the bottom of the pot for no reason. It confuses me as to why they did that, however everything else I like and I think that might be the only thing I don't like about these.
Long Lasting:
These surprisingly do last a long time even without using a primer. They pretty much last all day on me, don't smudge or crease either! However I would recommend using a primer before hand just to make sure and primers are know to make eyeshadows brighter so if that's something you want I would for sure use a primer, they're not too expensive it just depends on what brand you go for. For example MUA do an amazing eyeshadow primer and it's only £2.50..I want to say, but yeah give that a try and I promise you it is actually very good and I prefer using that one over my Urban Decay ones...yep.

Pigmentation & Application:
These are incredibly pigmented and glide really nicely over the lid as they are cream eyeshadows. I find them really easy to apply and are great for blending out. I tend to use these underneath eyeshadows as a base, but you can also just use them all over the lid and they will still look really pretty. If you maybe aren't too good at applying your eyeshadow I would recommend you getting yourself one of these cream eyeshadows, I'm sure you'll love them too. I like to use brushes to apply these because I just find it to work a lot better on me, but it's also really easy to just use your finger which works just the same. Cream eyeshadows also take no time to apply so they're perfect if your in a rush or for school/work and just want a little something on your eyes to make you look more awake..shall we say.
Colour Range:
There are 12 shades in the whole collection I believe and they are all very wearable (although 'Turquoise Forever' is questionable) and are really nice for everyday. I think they did really well with the colour selection and have made shades which are appealing to everyone.

I really do love these cream eyeshadows and I'm sure they'll stay a fave of mine for a while, I'm just so annoyed at myself for not buying these sooner. If you have ever tried these or love them yourself let me know which is your favourite shade in the comments :) And if anyone has any recommendations for more cream eyeshadows you think I'll like please do let me know as I'm sure I'll end up buying it next time I'm in boots ;)
