Exclusive Kids Content on Netflix UK and Ireland.

Image
Netflix has changed so much from their original business model, it's staggering. Over the last number of years they've introduced their own branded shows to their library, and it seems that these shows overshadow some of the classic stuff they have. But they're not content to just provide for the grown ups in the house; the little ones are covered too. Not only that, but the fact that these are Netflix's shows that they produce, there's no danger of the disappearing from the service. This month, I'll be taking a look at some of Netflix's own kids shows.
Dinotrux.
"Dinotrux" is based on a series of illustrated Children's books by Chris Gall. It's the adventures of Ty, a Tyrannosaurus Trux, and Revvit, a Reptool. It's feels like a hybrid of two staples of the old "Transformers" cartoons - the Constructicons and the Dinobots, but it has a lot of heart to it, particularly the friendship between Ty and Revvit. There's an evil …

Urban Decay Afterglow Highlighter "Aura"

I can never resist a highlighter. I like to use it for the top of my cheekbones, the inner corner of my eyes, or go the whole hog and down the bridge of my nose and cupids bow. So when I saw that Urban Decay came out with their Afterglow Highlighter (€28) I knew I had to try it! There are three to pick from Aura, Fireball and Sin.

The fishnet cut out of UD is meant to help you see into the packaging but this is lost on my eyesight, thankfully though there is a colour sticker on the back of the packaging so problem solved for me.

Review: Shiseido Veiled Rouge RD 315 Enchantment & Perfect Rouge RD 555 Spellbound

This year seems to be all about lip products for me, and if last week's posts are anything to go by I'm sure I have loads more to come! These were sent to me a few weeks back to try out and I have to say the more I'm getting to know about Shiseido the more I'm loving the brand. These lipstick are the most expensive and high end in my collection now but does that mean they are worth it?! Well let's find out....

I will start off with Shiseido Veiled Rouge RD 315 Enchantment (€27.00), a lipstick saturated with moisture to leave your lips feeling luscious. The packaging is long a slim and the shape of their symbolic camellia logo which is a lovely little touch. One thing lacking on the packaging for me is that there is no colour sticker or anything to show what colour is inside, so when you have a few of these you will need to check them individually to find the one you are looking for. I can overlook that though because I really like the overall packaging. The veiled…
