Mac Satin Taupe Eyeshadow

Mac Satin Taupe Eyeshadow

If you've been reading any beauty blog long enough, you've probably heard of this eyeshadow a million times. Mac eyeshadows are overall pretty good but some are exceedingly well made; Satin Taupe is one of them. It's a frost finish but formula wise it feels similar to the Veluxe Pearl range. The colour is something that would work on absolutely anyone. It's a grey taupe with a hint of brown. The silver pearlescent shimmer also gives it a more rich look. It's a colour that can work really well as a transition colour. For a…Read more
Maybelline Vivid & Smooth Liner in Bordeaux Pearl

Maybelline Vivid & Smooth Liner in Bordeaux Pearl

It's election result day! I'm going to be glued to my tv! Until then, here's a pretty eyeliner! Maybelline's Vivid and Smooth range has some really nice pearlescent eyeliners. Bordeaux Pearl is a gorgeous maroon/burgundy shade with gold pearly bits. It looks amazing and is very wearable. The quality is great. It's very creamy and glides on really well. You get great payoff in one swipe and it stays creamy. Once it sets after 5 minutes, it's smudge proof and waterproof as well. Doesn't budge for 5-6 hours or fade either. There's no…Read more
Rimmel Glam Eyes Day 2 Night Waterproof Mascara in Black

Rimmel Glam Eyes Day 2 Night Waterproof Mascara in Black

Gonna start off this post with a bit of a disclaimer about how I like my mascara. Hate, hate, hate clumpy lashes with flaky bits sticking out. It just looks so unnatural and feels uncomfortable. It has to be waterproof or reasonably resistant to water because my eyes water more than usual. And finally, it should be lightweight. We good? Ok, so I don't actually wear mascara on an everyday basis unless I have the extra time to get ready. I generally do when I'm going out. I've been using the Revlon Grow…Read more

BareMinerals READY Eyeshadow 2.0 in The 15 Minutes

Every month I rotate makeup in my "daily use" section so I actually end up using the lot. Last month I got a lot of wear from this neglected eyeshadow duo. BareMinerals eyeshadows, particularly the READY range are raved about everywhere. So, when there was a nifty discount on FeelUnique, I grabbed this. The BareMinerals READY Eyeshadow 2.0 in The 15 Minutes is a two eyeshadow palette with the shades Page Six and Most Requested. Page Six is a warm baby pink with fine gold shimmer. It's pigmented but not as much as Most…Read more
Urban Decay Woodstock Eyeshadow

Urban Decay Woodstock Eyeshadow

Urban Decay wins when it comes to eyeshadows! I managed to get my hands on this gorgeous and alarming pink eyeshadow. Urban Decay Woodstock is a pearly fuchsia eyeshadow. It's also described as a deep pink shimmer. It has pink and silver shimmer. How amazing is the colour though? I can keep staring at it for hours! The quality is great, on par with rest of the pearl finish UD eyeshadows. It's very smooth and buttery to touch. It's also very pigmented and the payoff is good as well. I like that even…Read more

December 2013 Favourites

It feels incredibly weird to say, but today's my birthday!! Happy Birthday to me!! Turning 25 today which is a bit depressing... mentally I think I'm still 10!

For now, here are my favourites for December! I did a little haul last month which is kinda part of my birthday haul, so some new products are…Read more

Icy Blue New Year’s Eve Eye Tutorial

New Year's Eve is arguably the only time I experiment more with makeup! This year I wanted to so a really different eye look. Now I'm no genius, this look is inspired by this. Not sure who the original blogger is but if you do, please let me know so I can give credit. :)     I changed it up a bit to suit my eye shape. I don't like a lot of makeup on the bottom and I also have hooded/deep set eyes. but you will need to change the crease…Read more
Jordana Easyliner For Eyes in Denim Blue

Jordana Easyliner For Eyes in Denim Blue

I've never really used anything from Jordana and I was gifted this eye pencil. Always a good way to try a new brand! ;) I feel like Jordana is pretty similar to Milani but a bit cheaper. A lot of their products look the same this one is very similar overall to the Milani Easyliners. Ofcourse, the only difference is that this one is only $1.99! Jordana Easyliner For Eyes in Denim Blue is a dark blue colour. It has a black base and is unlike many other dark blues which are navy…Read more
Ebay Shopping Guide for Makeup, Nail Polish and Random Stuff

Ebay Shopping Guide for Makeup, Nail Polish and Random Stuff

I'm finally taking the time to write this all down. When I first started with eBay (over 3 years ago), it was very overwhelming. I'm hoping this will serve as a good guide for newbies and/or just for people to discover new sellers. There are a couple of important things I want to mention first though. All of the sellers mentioned here ship worldwide but there are at times certain exceptions like Russia, Brazil or Italy. Definitely check the product description.  I've also purchased from all of them before and I've had a…Read more
