Stila Eyes Are The Window (mind) // Review

Hi Sweets,stilaYou know that saying there’s something about Mary, and even though no one can really explain what that something is, we all understand what that saying means?  Well that’s how I feel about matte eye shadows.

Autumn Edit // The Burberry Face

Hi Sweets,

bface2Autumn is here and this year I’ve been feeling light to medium bases that have a natural glow to them.  I haven’t worn full coverage anything for a long time now!  Some of that has to do with my skincare (which I will be sharing next week), as well as the fact that I don’t like the feeling of my skin suffocating underneath the ‘cement’ that is Estee Lauders Double Wear (for example).

ColourPop Lippie Stix + Lippie Pencils // pt.2

Hi Sweets,copolThere isn’t much more I can say about how good ColourPop Cosmetics, they are a high end product for an affordable price (see my other posts here, here and here).  All their products have fantastic colour payoff, build really well, are long wearing and the packaging is sleek and modern, with a girly touch.  The quality and textures are consistent throughout their product range and that isn’t a claim I can make for many brands.  So when I placed my most recent order for their Super Shock Cheek colours, I of course ordered some of their Lippie Stix and matching Lippie Pencils (I also got the Megan Naik quad).

Bobbi Brown // A quick haul

HI Sweets!

bbrown1I am back and it feels so good.  How have you been?!  I had to take an impromptu break from blogging, due to a heavier work load and ….life, but I am now back to regular scheduling.  Scheduling??  Well yes, I have finally settled on Tuesday and Sundays.  I am really looking forward to adding some new blogging segments, which I will be launching this month and feel refreshed and ready to get back in the swing of things.

Maybelline Colour Drama Intense Velvet Lip Pencils // A review

Hi Sweets,

mcd1After what seemed an age the Maybelline Colour Drama Intense Velvet Lip Pencils (long enough name?) finally came out in NZ and have recently been stocked in store.  After seeing many amazing Uk and NZ bloggers review these lip pencils and with them comparing the lipsticks to the NARS lip pencils, I knew I would want to get my hands on these.  I stalked the shelves of Farmers and the like for a good month and finally they are available and this makes me sooooo f***ing happy!

Anastasia Beverly Hills // Brows

Hi Sweets,anaToday I am sporting some major, m-a-j-o-rrr caterpillars, so what better day than today to share with you some of my current go to brow products.   Now I know what you’re thinking… ‘rebel’ and while I would love that to be true, it just isn’t.    .These beastly brows aren’t being grown out to be reshaped or any such excuse, I just haven’t been f**ked getting them waxed or threaded.  These products are my go to because even with my overgrown hedges, I can still manage to create natural, defined brows that frame the face and look somewhat tamed (no small feat).
