Song Of The Week: Green Day – Nuclear Family

Probably no surprises here that it’s a Green Day song considering their newest album, ¡Uno!, was released here in Ireland on Friday. I am contemplating doing a full review of the album but, I don’t want it to just be a huge ramble about my love for the band, so we’ll see if that one actually happens.


Nuclear Family is the first track from ¡Uno! and what a way to start. The intro of it really sounds like old Green Day, something a lot of people including myself were excited to hear. The intro does sounds a lot like a new take on Welcome To Paradise, which some people seem not to like but I for one don’t see the issue. In my opinion this is the catchiest song on the album and the one that literally makes me want to dance around and sing along, and to me that’s a big thing, if a song can do that then I’m bound to love it.


I love the video for it as well, their videos for other songs on the album haven’t exactly been my cup of tea but this I like. Its just them in a practise room doing what they do best, there’s no bullshit about it just a good ole performance video. Also as a little side note I’m kind of in love with the new leopard print and glittery instrument look they’re going for now, it’s me all over.

Here’s a few links of places to keep up to date with Green Day going on’s;
Green Day‘s website, obviously for all the official band announcements.
Green Day Authority a fan run site that basically has everything you would want to know from magazine covers to release dates they have it covered.
Warner Music Ireland these will have Irish exclusive updates and release dates.
-There’s also the Green Day Ireland Twitter and Facebook  as well that occasionally have competitions (they have one running right now for a bottle of Green Day hot sauce!), updates and the like.

Let me know if I should do a whole review on ¡UNO! 🙂

Make Up Forever – Star Powder in #941

So I recently turned 21 and as part of my birthday present I got a Grab-One voucher for the Face 2 store in Dublin, with the voucher I bought the Star Powder along with a foundation and concealer (I’ll be doing a review on them soon).

You pay €10 for 0.4g of product which seems a lot but when I thought about it I’d only be using it as an inner corner highlight so it will last me for ages.

The powder is a very slightly off white colour filled with tiny pieces of silver glitter. It is extremely finely milled and surprisingly you don’t get that much fall out considering how much glitter is in it.

The best way I have found to use it is to add a tiny bit of primer/cream eyeshadow to the inner corner of your eye then gently pat this on with a Real Techniques – Accent Brush which is absolutely tiny but work perfectly for this.

Used correctly it can really brighten up your inner corner and look beautiful but, believe me a little goes a long way otherwise it will look way too over the top. I just use what’s in the lid and it means you don’t end up with too much on your brush.

Have you tried this? What were your thoughts?
