Ready, Set, Summer!

Fresh Summer Makeup

This is a treat for all you Northern Hemisphere-ers out there (and let’s face it, there’s a lot more of you guys than there is us Southerners).  Even though it is winter here, I live in the subtropics so it’s pretty much summer here all year round.  Temperatures during the day stay around the low 20s C (70 F) most winter days.  So I figured I am pretty well qualified to talk on the subject of getting ready for summer ^_^ Continue reading

Mini Maybelline Haul and First Impressions

I have a couple of Autumn-hued berry beauties for you today.  I’ve been seeing these colours pop up on my Instagram feed quite a bit lately, and I haven’t got either of these products in my stash yet so I wanted to give them a try.  The products are the MasterGlaze blush stick in the shade Make a Mauve and ColorDrama Intense Velvet Lip Pencil in the shade Berry Much.

Friday Favourite – Neutrogena MoistureSmooth Color Stick in Rich Raisin

Neutrogena MoistureSmooth (1)This product is one of the chubby lip crayon variety.  The main selling point for me was the colour.  I actually ordered this before Christmas last year, well before I knew that Marsala was going to be 2015’s colour of the year.  Points to me for foresight!  This lippy is the perfect Marsala wine colour.  It is so beautiful I can hardly describe it.  It’s almost a neutral colour, you can wear it with nearly everything Continue reading

Makeup Inspiration Monday #3 - St. Patrick's Day (1)

This week’s Emerald Isle inspired look comes just in time for St. Patrick’s Day.  If you’re searching for a look to wear this Tuesday the 27th of March, this just might be the inspiration you need 🙂

I used this as an opportunity to try something a little different, a little out there, bright and colourful.  I’m usually a neutral eyes person so this was a lot of fun for me.  Continue reading

Friday Favourite – Lorac Pro 2 Palette

Friday Favourite - Lorac Pro 2 Palette (2)Friday Favourite - Lorac Pro 2 Palette (1)I am slightly ashamed to admit that this is the first real eyeshadow palette I have ever purchased.  I’ve been a loyal slave to my beloved MAC shadows for as long as I can remember, and I didn’t think I needed anything else.  However my curiosity got the better of me recently Continue reading

Friday Favourite – Original Source Vanilla & Raspberry Shower Gel

This is my take on Continue reading
