Sleek Highlighting Palette | Midas Touch

Sleek Highlighting Palette Midas Touch Swatches

Bula Vinaka class!

(A ‘warm’ hello in Fijian today!)

Today I need to talk to you about the Sleek Highlighting palette in Midas Touch. The newest member of the Sleek highlighting family, Midas Touch is a blue/cool toned palette that has once again, stolen my heart. Can Sleek do no wrong with their highlighters? Let us go back in time to my review on the Solstice Highlighting Palette by Sleek. It was wonderful. The Angels were singing. The birds were chirping. The sun was out. Everything was warm and sparkly and happy.

Today I feel like I’m in the movie Frozen. The snow is glistening. The ice is cracking. The air is crisp and fresh. Everything is quiet… too quiet. But in a good way. The kind of quiet when you know you’re waking up to a snow day (and a day off school). This palette feels even better than a snow day. It’s the sparkly, glittery, out-of-this-world pigmented little brother of the Solstice palette and I couldn’t be any more excited about it.

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.

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).

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.

Maybelline New York New Releases July ’15 Haul

Maybelline New York The Nudes Palette Brow Drama Mascara Lipstick Fit Me Matte+Poreless

Good morning class,

Let’s chat about Maybelline! First off – Maybelline NY is one of my favourite drugstore brands! I find they are always creating decent dupes of high-end popular products. Their mascaras are on point. They have a fantastic range of lippies. I’ve heard their Master Precise liner is pretty wonderful. All-in-all, I’ve always found the products I’ve tried by Maybelline have been pretty decent for a drugstore brand.

BH Blush Bounty

BH Cosmetics Blush Palette Glamourous

 

Good afternoon class,

Ahh blush, it has the power to make you look angelic, embarrassed, child-like, hot, orange, glowing or potentially, sunburned. What a lot of power that is. I can almost feel the rays of emotion coming from this palette.

 

Today I’d like to chat to you about this blush palette I received recently from an order on Beauty Joint (www.beautyjoint.com). It is the BH Cosmetics Glamorous 10 Blush Palette. I have heard really great things about BH cosmetics so I thought I’d give it a wee go (why not eh?). I have always wanted a blush palette purely because I always buy pink blush shades and I wanted to mix it up a bit. I love this palette because it’s so cheap – so I was able to justify my purchase of $13.29US on an entire palette – even though I may not use all the shades!

The worst thing about this palette is that the shades don’t have names so it’s going to be difficult to describe which shade I’m referring to but hopefully we will get there and if that’s the worst thing then it must be pretty fab!

The packaging is very simple and sleek, it’s nothing special really. As a warning – it is quite thin and I feel as though it could break fairly easily. Or at least it probably isn’t great protection for your blushes. That being said, I’d recommend not taking this one away travelling with you, and be careful where you store it.

I was most excited to get this palette because of the gorgeous lavender shade in the bottom middle. Like, what? I don’t think I’ve ever seen a blush in that shade before! It is gorgeous. I have no idea what it would look like on the cheek (perhaps like I’ve smothered lavender flowers over my cheeks) but it’s gorgeous all the same. Continue reading

Let’s get NAKED!

Urban Decay NAKED palettesPictured from top to bottom; Urban Decay NAKED palette, Urban Decay NAKED2 palette, Urban Decay NAKED3 palette. 

Good Morning Class,

After spending hours awake last night with my brain tick-tick-ticking I decided what I’d like my next blog post to be about. I am a member of several makeup/girl/beauty related Facebook groups and lets just say my news feed is crammed with makeup posts each day. A common topic I’ve noticed on these pages is regarding the creme-de-la-creme of eye shadow palettes… the Urban Decay ‘NAKED’ palettes. Which one should I buy? Which is good for [insert eye colour here]? Which one has the best colours? Which is most pigmented? What if I’ve already got [insert dupe here]? Luckily for all of us (and unluckily for the boyf), I’ve taken the liberty of acquiring all three so that I can review and recommend appropriately.

The Urban Decay NAKED palettes include 12 matte and shimmer shades selected from the Urban Decay shadow collection. They are all neutral shades with each palette having its own theme of colours. These palettes are perfect for creating quick on-the-go looks because they come with so many shades and each one has a double sided brush and mirror. I use these palettes regularly to create simple looks for school and I can quickly sparkle it up with some of the gorgeous shimmery shades (which the kids LOVE). I have been told “Miss White I love your eyeshadow today!” after using one of these palettes.

Today I’m going to tell you my thoughts about each palette and I might even spill which one is my number one favourite palette from the collection (which happens to include my second favourite eye shadow of all time!). Continue reading
