ColourPop ‘In Bloom’ Collaboration // A Review

Hi Sweets, inbloom1If you’re new to my blog let me introduce myself…  My name is Rachill and I am a ColourPop junkie.  I have reviewed a lot of their goodies (see here, here, here and here) and completely believe they deserve the hype that their products generate!  I have trialled everything they offer (except for their bronzers) and love everything I own.  My only complaint is that some of my super shock shadows and super shock cheeks have come apart from their pottles during transit, but that hasn’t affected the performance of each item.

A night at the theatre

Hi Sweets, theatreThere is nothing like a night out at the theatre.  A month ago I went and saw the Phantom of The Opera!  It was amazing, the acting was superb and the singing was out of this world and the costumes were beautiful!  I was lucky enough to snag some really good seats (dropped a pretty penny for them) and thankfully had some wonderful company, who like me, is a bit of a theatre addict!  The curtains pulled back the opening scene started and I was whisked away to a wonderful world of opulence, intrigue, betrayal, love and passion!  The entire experience was breath-taking and as we left the theatre we both had one of those big ‘just been to the theatre and it was mind-blowing’ happy grins on our faces.

ZOEVA ROSE GOLDEN COMPLETE EYE SET VOL. 2 // review

Hi Sweets,

zoeva1zoeva2When I first started using makeup I had no idea makeup brushes even existed!  I thought the tools needed to slap on this new and transformative ‘stuff’ was the classic triangular makeup sponge, the puff that came in my Maybelline dream matte powder and the sponge tip applicators were all I needed when adding a little grey to the lower lash line, stark white to the inner corner and champagne to the lid (and if the eyeshadow I used didn’t come with an applicator, a cotton bud would work just fine!).  As I become more interested in makeup and developing any sort of ‘technique’ I was introduced to the weird and wonderful world of brushes!  Did you know there was more than one kind of eye brush *mind blown*

Burberry Light Glow – Natural blush // a review

Hi Sweets,

burberry4As I write this I am listening to the rampaging of Vikings.  Ever since Netflix reached NZ shores I have been unashamedly binge watching Freaks and Geeks, Firefly, Vikings and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and have been loving it, haha.  Another thing that I have been loving (nice segway no?…. not really haha). Anyway… I have been swooning over two Burberry Blushes that I can’t believe took me so long to add to my collection.

Zoeva – Naturally Yours // a review and swatches

Hi Sweets, zoevapalWhen it comes to eyeshadows I always go for neutrals, I very rarely venture out from my neutral safety blanket, only sometimes going a lil cray and using a navy blue or maybe even purple on the lower lash line or outer corner (woah! thrill seeker) – I mean I hardly even use black eyeshadow.  I favour the warm toned browns, yellow toned highlights and occasionally a cool taupe.  So when I was ordering some brushes from Zoeva (review coming Sunday) I naturally couldn’t help myself and got the ‘Naturally Yours’ palette as well.
