Yay! Another haul! I know you all love hauls, because I absolutely love them as well. It’s interesting to see what other people buy and then get jealous over it and make a shopping cart ourselves… don’t tell me I’m the only person who does this.
Anyway – make a cart yourself after reading this one because you won’t be jealous! The Colourpop range of Super Shock Eye Shadows, Lippie Stix and Lippie Pencils are only $5 each! $5US! Crazy talk! Plus they have just released some gorgeous blush products which are $8 – and they’re double the size of the eye shadows so sweet deal!
I picked up four Super Shock Eye Shadows and three Lippie Stix. I didn’t get any of the Pencils… but instant regret! I wish I did and they’re already in my cart for my next purchase (which will probably be tomorrow).
This week I was lucky enough to get my hands on a well-loved product created by the lovely ladies at Benefit Cosmetics. To be totally honest, I hadn’t heard much detail regarding this product so I don’t really know what to expect. However I am currently writing this blog post as I am trying this out for the first time…
Looking at the packaging I am quite impressed. For a start, I had no idea that this was not only an eyelid/eye shadow primer but it also can be used under the eyes to help your concealer stay as well! That has just made me like really excited. I have found my concealer looking a little cakey and creasing like an old woman underneath my eyes lately so this product has arrived just in the nick of time!
I absolutely love the size! I had no idea it would be this big! It’s ginormous! I feel as if this product will last me for forever. I don’t have a concealer this big and I figure I’ll be using about as much as I’d use of my concealer each day (maybe a little more for the eyelids). Opening it up I see it has a doe foot applicator (is that how you say it? It sounds wrong but let’s just roll with it) which I absolutely love! I love using this type of applicator for concealer because it applies so easily and there’s always heaps on the wee doe foot top part so you don’t need to keep pumping the applicator in the product and getting air trapped inside. I’m finding it a little bit hard to close the lid properly? It’s one of those situations where it doesn’t like going all the way down but I can live with that. Continue reading →

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 →
