December goodies

21 Dec
Hello hello!!

Can you believe that in just 4 sleeps it will be Christmas? It is such a beautiful time of year. Other then the oh so glorious presents, people are generally happier. And the food, don’t even get me started on the food.

This year James and I are going to his Grandma’s house for Christmas lunch. His parents come down from Canberra and his Uncle from Melbourne drives up as well. They’re such a caring family, they have really made me feel like one of the them. Anyway, enough mushy stuff, onto the haul.

In one of my recent pre-Christmas hauls, I picked up a gorgeous slightly shimmery mauve colour eyeshadow by Maybelline. It is a part of their MNY range. It has become my go to Christmas look. It is just so beautiful. It has a gold shimmer through the red that makes it completely wearable for work and play. I did have one similar to this from Covergirl or Max Factor that I completely adored but it is off with the makeup fairies now. Sad.

A discovery thanks to Rachael Jade were Maybelline’s Smoochies. Bought from Priceline, they are reasonably priced but lacking in variety. I bought two our of the three available but sometime after Christmas I will probably buy the last one to complete the set. So far I’m enjoying them, they’re nice on my lips, add a little bit of tint and looks charming underneath the MNY sparkly lipgloss I also bought.

My recent move to the outer suburbs has been fantastic. Along side the birds singing is a wholesale makeup shop. Oh yes! They stock makeup that you can no longer purchase from regular makeup retailers. I found some little goodies that I am looking forward to trying. I grabbed a pack of Mary Kate and Ashley mattifying papers, basically it just helps to blot away any oil on your face. I’m not sure about their brand and how it ranks, but these will be very handy for my bag. I also picked up a blue tone eyeshadow pallet from Maybelline. Blue is one of those colours that I just haven’t gotten into, so we will give it a go. I’m thinking of a bit of a smokey eye may be calling from the pallet. I do have a navy blue mascara and now a navy eye pencil to add to my collection. Maybe that alongside the gold liquid liner could be some out there party look that I may not attempt… 😀

This has been over a couple of weeks and pretty much all of them were bought on sale minus the Smoochies. I’m testing them all out still to see what works for me but at the moment my MNY eyeshadow is definitely winning.

I do know that I am getting some pretty exciting stuff for Christmas, so no doubt, that will be up here soon.

Have a lovely Christmas every one! Spend time with your loved ones and eat lots of good food, if there is ever a time for it, it is now.

Whisper Review

14 Oct
Hello hello!

I am here! .. If any of you were wondering.

It’s been a crazy crazy week. In fact, it has been a crazy huge year. I can’t believe what has happened, it honestly blows my mind.

Last week, James didn’t go grocery shopping with me. Our supermarket is next door to Kmart. Without James I have no one to stop me from my temptations to acquire more stuff. So, I blame this review on James. Thank you sweet heart.

Maybelline claim the new Colour Whisper has..

Pure color pigments suspended in a weightless gel.
No heavy waxes or oils.
Soft, sexy gel-color.

I find that it feels very similar to a balm but have found that within a half hour it dries and feels slightly uncomfortable. It’s a pity because I love love love the colour!
My lips are naturally quite red and as such, this colour really just adds that bit of extra oomph my lips need. I only use one coat and find that it is more than enough, it is fairly opaque.
With a quick coat of my Maybelline Baby Lips Color in Berry Crush it last a fair few hours before I need to reapply.

I may need to check out a few more colours. This has been my go to lip colour for the past week and a half.
