Flawless Make-Up in a Hurry

Okay, i’ll admit it, I’m the queen of being late. Whether it’s for work or a social occasion I never seem to get there on time. Is it because I have poor time management skills? Or is it because I get caught up trying to make my winged liner symmetrical? Who can say? (Maybe my boyfriend?)   What I can say is, it has forced …

REVIEW: THE BEAUTY EXCHANGE MAKEUP BRUSHES

I’m a huge fan of using make up brushes.  Once upon a time I was happy to use my fingers and always ended up having the dreaded “foundation fingers”, even though I’d wash my hands somehow I would find foundation prints on my clothes, work documents and even my car gear stick. Thank goodness I invested in some brushes and those days are behind me. …

REVIEW: JEFFREE STAR SKIN FROST ICE COLD

REVIEW: MAYBELLINE EYESTUDIO COLOR TATTOO 24HR LEATHER EYESHADOW

THE MAKE UP GODS HAVE ANSWERED MY PRAYERS!!! Apologies for being dramatic but I’m excited.  The new Maybelline Colorado Tattoo 24HR leather effect eyeshadows are now available and they are heavenly. I picked up mine in the shade 80 Creamy beige. What makes the Color Tattoo 24HR leather eyeshadow a step above the rest is the consistency. It’s a matte, creamy formula with “lumi matte …

REVIEW: CHI CHI NUDES EYESHADOW PALETTE

I love Chi Chi, it’s a proud Australian  cosmetics company, that’s affordable and stays up to date with the latest makeup trends.  One of my favourite products are the eye shadow palettes, in particular the Nudes palette. What attracted me to this palette was the colours, an oddly familiar colour combination. Did you notice it too, dear reader? It’s almost the perfect dupe for the …
