Save or Splurge? | Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed ♥

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Moonstone

Good morning class,

Today I thought I’d have a chat about the #1 lusted after highlighter of the season. The Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed. I got the shade Moonstone because I thought that would best suit my skin tone. From what I have read about the shades I think I was right. I know Champagne Pop went a bit nuts because it’s a collaboration with Jaclyn Hill but I don’t think it would have worked for me.

The Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector (BSSP I’m going to call it from now on so I don’t have to type all of that out each time) is rather pricey. At around $46 NZ from RY.com.au it’s not something you’d buy impulsively. So I thought I’d be the test dummy today (well, that’s what I told my partner) and let you know if YOU should buy it! Sounds good? Okay let’s go.

Lipstick Collection | My 6 Most Used Lipsticks ♥

Lipsticks I use Everyday Colourpop Ultra Matte YSL Rouge Pur Couture Mac Kat Von D

Good morning class,

I always have a little pang of guilt every time I lay eyes on my lipstick collection because there are so many that I barely use. However I can’t bare to get rid of them because I like to have the option of using them at some point. (Silly, I know!).

If you know me from school (and I know there are some staff/parents who read my ramblings – Hi! Thank you for reading!) then you know that I do try to wear an array of bright colours on my lips each week. However, if you’ve ever been to my house, you’d know it would take me about half a year to get through every lipstick I own if I wore one different shade each day.

I thought perhaps by writing this post, it might make me discover lipsticks that haven’t seen the light of day in a while and try to get some use out of my collection. Plus it will let YOU all know which lipsticks you should probably go and buy 😉 (sorry, not sorry).

Haul | Uhhh, So No-one Helped Me… and I Still Can’t Stop Shopping!

I cant stop buying makeup haul Help Me

Good morning class,

This is the worst time of the year for shopping, because you’re supposed to be shopping for other people for Christmas but there’s all these sales and good stuff and I don’t know about you, but I end up buying just as much for myself as I do for my family and friends… (and I go CRAZY shopping for family and friends at Christmas!).

This haul has been collected over the past month (and I apologize I haven’t made a blog post for a month but I’ve been busy applying for a job and having a friend stay). I was going to make a few posts about individual items I’ve got in this haul however I figured I’d haul it first and the other posts will be coming soon!

If you desperately want to see a post about an individual item from this haul then please let me know.

Haul | Someone Help Me, I Can’t Stop Buying Makeup! ♥

Makeup haul review Urban Decay Stila Anastasia

Good morning class,

It is true. My savings account hates me, my boyfriend hates me, my mind is telling me no, but my body is telling me yes. House prices are going up, up, up and all I want to do is shop, shop, shop!

Here’s another (of many) makeup haul post. I really hope you guys like reading about these (please tell me if you don’t!) because I enjoy reading/watching them so that’s why I keep doing them! I think it’s my curious side coming through, I love to see what other people buy!

This haul contains bits and bobs from all over the show. I didn’t go crazy in one place, I sort of just saw various sales and deals and needed to replenish some nearly-finished items, and here we are.

Haul | The excitement that is… BIG BUCKET DEALS

essie paris hilton heiress perfume haul

Good morning class,

Today’s post is just a quick wee haul of some goodies which I nabbed at the ever-exhilarating BIG BUCKET DEALS sale!

If you’ve ever been to one of these sales, then you’ll know the stress and excitement I’m talking about. If not, then you need to sign up to their mailer and see when they’re close to you!

The Big Bucket Deals is a makeup sale that feels like it happens all the time, but really, they happen about 3-4 times a year in one area. They travel around New Zealand cleaning out the purses of all those makeup obsessedlike myself.

Review | The 6 Best Highlighters of ALL-TIME!

Highlighters makeup favourite swatches review

Good morning class,

I’m typing this one with a big smile today because highlighters happen to be my all-time favourite makeup product, and in fact, they’re partly the reason why I became so makeup-obsessed in the first place! Today I’m going to chat about my favourite highlighters and why, and I’m also going to ask you to PLEASE tell me what your favourites are?! I’d love to buy some more highlighters to add to my collection, so I’d love to know what you’ve been loving!

Favourites | August 2015

August Favourites Favorites

 

Good morning class,

Today I’d like to share with you my favourites for the month of August. I am well aware that I don’t do these favourites posts on the regular, but that’s purely because I don’t change my favourites that often. Some of these are a little bit new as well, so either you would have just heard about them on here, or you may probably be hearing about them fairly soon!

Let’s not muck around (a line I use on the daily).

Review | Tartelette Amazonian Clay Matte Eyeshadow Palette

tartelette palette review swatches

Good morning class,

Alleluia!   Alleluia!  Alleluia! ALLELUIA! (Jeez, you know when you type a word too much or look at a word for too long and it just does NOT look right? Yeah that totally happened with Alleluia. It is such a strange word…).

This palette is the best thing that’s ever happened to me and it’s changed my life. I PROMISE YOU. Out of all my palettes this is by far the most life-changing. I know this sounds cliched coming from a “beauty blogger” but hand-on-heart, I swear to God, this is life.

Review | Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation

Before After Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation Review

Good morning class,

This post was highly requested so I thought I’d let you know my thoughts on the new (for NZ/Australia) Maybelline Fit Me Matte+Poreless foundation! It retails for around $23 in New Zealand and you can buy it from Beauty Bliss, The Warehouse, Farmers, Kmart etc. If you’re not in New Zealand I’m sure it will be at your local pharmacy or drugstore and it will probably be much cheaper than $23… hehe.
