How (not) To | Groom Your Man – Waxing Edition


Good morning class,

I have been wanting to wax my man’s chest for a wee while now. It’s not that I find it unattractive or anything and of course I’d love him no matter how he looks. But, why not? The hairs on his chest weren’t thick like a bearded caveman, they were sort of sporadically spaced and I quite like that smooth-chest look on a man. Plus I rather enjoyed inflicting him some pain in an evil way…

Opinion | YouTube Sponsored Posts: What’s the big deal?

Good morning class,

Disclaimer – this is not some stupid suck-up-to-my-favourite-YouTubers-post. This is my honest opinion about something that really irritates me. 

Today I’d like to chat about something that grinds my gears. I spend a fair amount of my free time watching YouTube videos. I watch beauty, vlogs, reviews and challenges. I think that YouTube is a fantastic base for people to release their inner creativity. I wish it had been more of a thing when I was younger, although I’d imagine there’d be some pretty horrifically embarrassing videos out there of me if that were the case.

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.

The Products I’m so obsessed with that I NEED Back-Ups! Feat. NARS, Australis, TheBalm, Stila + ♥

Products I would repurchase back up NARS Mary Lou

Good morning class,

Today I’m back to being a ‘serial raver’ after I talked in my previous post about the ‘Products I would not repurchase’ and I wanted to take it a step further in a positive way and talk about the products I LOVE SO MUCH that I literally have or need back-ups.

I am the type of person (and I’ve said this before) that literally feels anxious when I don’t have a back-up of a favourite product. My boyfriend would totally scoff at that but it’s definitely true! Does anyone else feel this way!?

Za Cosmetics foundation & BB cream review + ANOTHER GIVEAWAY! ♥ ♥

ZA Cosmetics Foundation


Good morning class,

Today I’m excited to share with you a review on the three Za Cosmetics foundation-type products I own! I’ve been trialing these for a month or two now and I’m getting ants in my pants because I just want to tell you all about them! I’ve also got a Za Cosmetics Blender Sponge to giveaway as well which is one of my FAVE cheaper versions of the Beauty Blender. Stay tuned for how to win!

I’ve got the Za True White Liquid Foundation, the Za Total Hydration BB Cream UV and the Za Skin Beauty Liquid Foundation to review and I will do a wee bonus review on the Za Blender Sponge as well!

Za Cosmetics were kind enough to gift me one of these products (the True White Liquid Foundation) but I got the other two myself. You can buy Za Products from these stockists in store or here online

Za True White Liquid Foundation

This one is my FAVOURITE of the three because it’s more up my alley. It’s medium coverage but easily blended to a full coverage, it lasts for most of the day (which is pretty good considering my skin is literally an oil slick, and it has an awesome range of lighter shades! Which is great if you’ve got fair to medium skin tones but not so great if you’ve got a darker skin tone. It’s also the most expensive at $25 NZ – however $25 for a foundation = pretty awesome in my books! I think this one is great value and it looks gorgeous, dewy and BRIGHT on the skin. It sinks into the skin and feels really lightweight despite being a medium/full coverage foundation. I like to wear this one when I want fuller coverage but I don’t want to feel all cakey and I don’t NEED it to last all day flawlessly. I mean, don’t get me wrong. This stuff does have great lasting power! However when you’re an oily teacher in a hot classroom who likes to touch her face, NOTHING lasts long on that mug. I’d say it would last all day on most people. It doesn’t slide off my face either which is great! Not sure about dry skin – however my good friend Olivia (Xlivlovesmakeup) over on YouTube did a review of it as well here and she has dry skin! Subscribe to her please – shes a total babe!

ZA Cosmetics Foundation


Za Total Hydration BB Cream UV

Okay – I just want to start by telling a little story. One day I had a few pimps on my tomato-red chin (ladies time) and I was mucking round home but wanted to chuck on SOMETHING so I didn’t have to screw my face up in disgust every time I caught sight of myself in the mirror. I popped on a bit of this BB cream with my Za Blender Sponge and set it with a tiny touch of powder, a swipe of mascara and went on my way. Fast Forward to about 30 mins later. Tom comes in. Looks at me and is like “WOW you look gorgeous without makeup babe”. Moral of the story – men can’t tell whether your wearing makeup or not, and this BB cream is my new fave. It gives a really decent amount of coverage for a BB cream. It’s SUPER lightweight on the skin. It actually FEELS amazing on the skin – like it’s definitely hydrating! I really love it for a BB cream and I’d definitely wear it out (which is a big call because I rarely leave the house without a full face – mainly due to the fact I love applying makeup more than anything but also slightly because of that dreaded tomato chin). Would totes recommend it – plus it only costs $15! Steal.

ZA Cosmetics Foundation


Za Skin Beauty Foundation (apparently in the swatch I thought it was called Perfect Fit for some reason… excuse that)

This foundation is definitely my least favourite of the bunch. With my skin type and my preferences it really doesn’t do much for me. It’s definitely a light coverage – lighter than the BB cream. It doesn’t sit on my skin nicely and I don’t think it mixes well with my oily skin. It is advertised to “instantly even out skin tone and minimize the appearance of pores” which is definitely not the case for me. My skin is quite scarred from break outs on my chin which is probably why I don’t like it because it’s simply not pigmented enough to satisfy my coverage needs. However, it would be perfect for someone who was only after a light coverage, matte finish foundation. It’s definitely not a bad foundation, it feels nice on the skin, it blends out nicely and applies well, the colours are great for fair skin and it does give some coverage, however I cannot get it to work for me unfortunately! This one retails for $20 🙂


I think Za Cosmetics makes some pretty decent foundations + products in general. I’ve recently acquired a whole lot of their products (some gifted to me by the company, and some from friends or purchased myself) and I am really loving them! They have a great price point for New Zealand, they’re good quality, they have a HUGE range of makeup and skincare and their sister brand Moisture Mist is also fantastic. They also have great customer service and they do a whole lot of giveaways and deals over on their Facebook page – check it out!  

ZA Cosmetics blender sponge

Za Blender Sponge review + giveaway

So I also got two of the Blender Sponge’s from Za and I am LOVING using my one! It’s definitely not beauty blender – however it’s difficult to compare it to the beauty blender because the bb is so different to this product. The Za sponge is larger and more dense than the beauty blender and is more comparable to the Real Techniques sponge. I actually prefer it to the RT sponge because it’s bigger and a better shape which makes it easier and quicker to use. Lord knows I’m always trying to find ways of making my makeup routine quicker in the morning when I’m running late and this product does that! I find the application of the product itself no different to that of the beauty blender or Real Techniques sponge and I actually find this product much easier to clean. It doesn’t store away old product inside the sponge like the beauty blender does. It’s easy to get out ALL of the product from inside the sponge and then it’s as good as new again. Personally, for the price (around $20 but they often have deals where this is free with another face purchase etc), I think that this is a fantastic sponge. It applies product nicely, is quick and easy, simple to wash and lasts longer than the other sponges I’ve tried.

I’ve got one of these sponges to give away to a lucky reader in NZ + some other Za goodies! The reason why it’s only NZ is because when I do an international giveaway I want to give away something expensive to make it worthwhile because of shipping etc. If I posted this sponge internationally then the postage could cost nearly as much as the sponge itself! So stay tuned for an international giveaway.

Gerard Cosmetics Lipstick Haul + Review + Giveaway ♥♥

Gerard Cosmetics Swatches 1995 Underground Buttercup Giveaway


Good morning class,

It’s my BIRTHDAY TODAY! Woohoo! Although I don’t know why I’m celebrating because I’m basically an old woman now.

Today I want to share with you my Gerard Cosmetics haul. If you want to buy some of these products check out the range here

They have fantastic sales and discount codes running all the time, so follow their social media for updates! They often have free shipping which is the ultimate winner for me!

I picked up 6 of the lipsticks in their range (one for the giveaway and 5 for me). I got the shades 1995, Underground, Buttercup, All Dolled Up and Cherry Cordial + an extra Underground for you guys because I assumed that would be the colour I’d love the most (I was right!).

I was unbelievably excited for this order to come. The swatches online looked so good, the packaging is gorgeous and I’d ordered lots of nude/neutral shades which I’m loving at the moment. It did take about 2 weeks and the tracking doesn’t work properly for us in NZ which sucked because I was being super impatient. I just wanted to swatch them!

Finally the order came, packaged quite well with an information card + discount code for my next order. Quite impressed. The only downside was that the lipsticks don’t come in any packaging like plastic wrap or a wee box – this sort of freaks me out a bit. Although when I opened them for a look they all look untouched (+ I promise the giveaway one has been untouched as well!).

Here are the swatches;

Gerard Cosmetics Swatches 1995 Underground Buttercup Giveaway


I have found all the lipsticks apart from Buttercup to be well pigmented. Buttercup is quite light and not pigmented enough to cover my natural lip colour. So I’ve been using it over the top of a nude lip liner which is worked okay. (Although I actually left Buttercup in the car and it melted and got a little bit deformed – hopefully you can’t tell in the pictures though). Don’t get me wrong, I love the shade of Buttercup and it looks great over a lip liner but the pigmentation is definitely not consistent.

As for the formula as a whole, it’s quite a matte formula which i like and it’s smooth and creamy to apply at first, although I find it gets quite drying on the lips and my lips looked a bit gross after a day at school because they were just SO dry. They’re not those lipsticks that you can just keep re-applying over the top, you actually have to take the lipstick off, put a bit of balm on and then reapply. Which is admittedly a bit of a pain, but the colours are SO gorgeous that it’s worth it.

The packaging looks gorgeous but it is quite tinny. It’s not quite as luxurious as I imagined, however for the price you pay for the lipstick + the look of it, it’s still fantastic in my books. I love the way it’s like a mirror (although that makes it hard to take photos). They look great on display and are easy to find in your bag.

Although these lipsticks aren’t super long-wearing, they do feel nice on the lips at first application. The colours (bar Buttercup) are super pigmented and creamy, they are just awesome colours, the packaging does LOOK gorgeous, they’re super cheap, they do free shipping and many of them have matching lip glosses (which I want to try next!) Overall, all things considered, these lipsticks are awesome for the price! I probably wouldn’t buy them full price (although I hate paying full price for anything), but when you’ve got a discount code I think they’re a good product especially with the range of colours. I recommend them!

My personal favourites are all of them. I LOVE Underground, it’s such a different colour. One I don’t have in my collection but it looks super flattering on the lips. I am OBSESSED. 1995 I thought would be way too dark for me, but in fact it looks perfect. Makes me feel like a 90’s kid again. All Dolled Up is the perfect Candy Yum-Yum alternative. It’s a Miss White sort of colour. Cherry Cordial is AMAZING and it’s my FAVE I think. It’s so flattering on my skin tone and perfect for autumn. Buttercup is a nice almost glossy finish, perfect for over the top of a lip liner.

Shhh! Miss White’s Beauty Secrets – (7 tricks I couldn’t live without!) ♥

Good morning class,

Sssh! Today I want to share with you my TOP beauty secrets – straight from the head of Miss White herself. They’re probably nothing too mind-blowing but I always find it helpful to hear other people’s tips and tricks that they’ve come across over time so I thought I’d let you know mine. (I am LOVING both gifs and Pretty Little Liars at the moment – for any PLL chat, comment below! I love to gossip about it!)

Note: these top secret secrets may have been taken from various websites, gurus, magazines, people, grandmas, friends etc. Nothing’s original these days is it. However these tips are ones that I personally use daily and that work for me, so I feel like that’s all that matters here.

Tip #1: SARD WONDER SOAP. It’s the stain remover of the Gods. It’s the ONLY bar of soap you need in your lives. It. Is. King of the Soaps


(Not my photo)


I always see people on Facebook (especially my beloved Makeup Obsessives) in a complete panic over a simple stain on a favourite dress or something similar. Truly I tell you, you will never have this problem again after purchasing this $3.50 goodness from your local supermarket. This will take out basically any stain it gets it’s greasy mitts on. I’ve found if you get at a stain early and with this soap, it will always come out. The same cannot always be said for older stains, but it does fade the tougher ones and gets out most of the others. I also use this soap to wash my brushes if they’re packed with product, my beauty blender, dresses with fake tan or makeup on them, my tanning mitt, my white shoes, the list goes on. I go through a bar of this stuff every few months and it’s the most handy cleaning product I own.

This one I’ve seen on Facebook and Instagram etc, so it’s on oldie but a goodie. I’m sorry if you’ve seen it before but it’s something I couldn’t live without knowing now. So in case you haven’t seen it, here we go.

beauty secret tip tricks drying brushes

Tip #2: Using hair ties to dry your makeup brushes. Whoever came up with this idea should have seriously copyrighted it or something because it is genius!

Basically, you wash your makeup brushes (I use a mixture of SARD wonder soap (for really foundationy brushes), Shampoo, Conditioner and Garnier Micellar Water – if you were wondering), then I give them a big ole shake to shake off the excess water (and it helps them stay in shape) and then I hang them off something (towel rail, drawer handles, coat hangers) upside down by getting a thick hair tie and making a loop around the towel rail and putting the brush handle through the loops. They usually dry within a day and they always stay in shape! Plus it means that water doesn’t run into the handle and loosen the glue!

Tip #3 Using cellotape to get the perfect winged eyeliner! This one I’ve seen Shaaanxo do on her videos and since then I’ve been using that little trick nonstop! I’ve also used an old fly buys card or a paper card as well.

You hold the card or stick the tape on an angle from the corner of your eye. Then you’ve got a perfect line to draw your liner on and it’s extremely straight and sharp. It’s also ideal because you can use any type of eyeliner with it. So if you’ve got one that’s super hard to wing with then you can use that with this technique!

Tip #4 follows a similar road and it’s using an old card (eftpos, fly buys, coupon etc) to apply your lower lash mascara. I use this trick ALL the time! Honestly whenever I remember. I have quite long bottom lashes but I always get mascara all over my lower lash line and it’s a pain in the butt! So when I use a card or something it makes them look SUPER long and there’s no mascara all over the show!

Basically, you put the card underneath your lower lashes and apply your mascara as usual. Warning – you will have mascara all over the card or whatever you used but it’s a small price to pay for bangin’ lashes!

Tip #5 Shave your legs with conditioner. I buy crappy cheap conditioner and slather it on my legs when I shave. It’s a way cheaper shaving cream and it’s just as easy. It makes my legs feel SO good afterwards as well. The only downside with this one is it makes your razors last slightly less longer if you don’t clean them well afterwards. But, we can deal with that for super smooth silky legs right?


makeup obsessives


Tip #6 Join Makeup Obsessives on Facebook. Honestly, I learn tips and tricks from that page every day! It’s amazing! There’s something like 20,000 girls and guys on there who are all as obsessed with makeup as I am. They’re always posting about new things, and wee tricks and ideas. They post about good sales, where to buy their favourite products, what their favourite products are, the products they don’t like… etc. It’s the best kept beauty secret if you’re not a member. Get on and join! Plus their Queen and page creator Kirsty Leigh is an absolute babe and is super friendly and easy to talk to!

Tip #7: EXFOLIATE your lips before lipstick! I am super lazy when it comes to doing my makeup and I’m usually in a rush, but I’ve found that every time I don’t use a lip exfoliate I regret it. It ALWAYS makes my lipstick last hours longer. It exfoliates and moisturizes my lips and basically just gets them all ready for some lippy. Seriously, if you don’t exfoliate those babies get on to it. I use the Lush Lip Scrub (bubblegum is my personal favourite) which retails at about $12. I know it seems like a waste of money but it seriously lasts for ages and tastes so delicious! If you didn’t want to spend money then I’m sure you could make your own with some sugar 🙂


Okay class, that’s it for today. I know I haven’t done “50 beauty tips and tricks” and there’s only 7… but that’s because I wanted to use ones that I actually use like every day! Let me know if you want to see more of these, or if you never want to hear about them again! Hopefully some of you picked up some new tricks and you hadn’t heard of them all before!

Also if you have a good tip you’d like to share with me PLEASE do! I love hearing people’s ideas and let’s face it. Who doesn’t want to make their beauty regime faster & more efficient?

My Mac lipstick collection ♥♥

mac lipstick collection ruby woo myth oxblood snob saint gemain dodgy girl impassioned candy yum yum vegas volt viva glam miley pheromonal rebel swatches review

Good morning class,

I think I’m going to go for a “lip week” theme for this week, and then a foundation week next week? I quite like themes – I think it’s a teacher thing. Let me know if there’s a ‘theme’ you’d like me to feature on the blog? Drugstore? High end? Brushes? Shopping? etc.

Anyway, this is my current Mac Cosmetics lipstick collection! Oh so exciting, and I know it’s a popular sort of a topic, so I thought I’d give it a go. I’ve done some lip swatches as well as arm swatches for you. The lip swatches are a bit average because my makeup wasn’t lookin’ great, it’s the last day of the school holidays, lighting was bad, I need a new camera, my lips hurt after like 3 lipsticks etc. You get the picture – enough with the excuses – (my parent’s always told me I should be a lawyer because I’m so good at arguing my case and coming up with excuses) – let’s get into it!

mac lipstick collection ruby woo myth oxblood snob saint gemain dodgy girl impassioned candy yum yum vegas volt viva glam miley pheromonal rebel swatches review

Okay so from left to right my lipsticks are as follows;

Myth, Oxblood, Snob, Saint Germain, Dodgy Girl, Candy Yum-Yum, Vegas Volt, Impassioned, Viva Glam Miley, Phoromenal, Ruby Woo, Rebel

Here are some arm swatches for you 🙂

mac lipstick collection ruby woo myth oxblood snob saint gemain dodgy girl impassioned candy yum yum vegas volt viva glam miley pheromonal rebel swatches review mac lipstick collection ruby woo myth oxblood snob saint gemain dodgy girl impassioned candy yum yum vegas volt viva glam miley pheromonal rebel swatches review


Now I’ll show you the lovely lip swatches and talk a little bit about each lipstick!

mac lipstick collection ruby woo myth oxblood snob saint gemain dodgy girl impassioned candy yum yum vegas volt viva glam miley pheromonal rebel swatches review

First up – Viva Glam Miley (Amplified); This is SO wearable! Super similar to Impassioned it’s a gorgeous medium pink. Not too bright, not too not bright (if that makes any sense). I have been wearing the heck out of this one since I bought it recently. I love that the profit from it goes to a good cause. I love that it’s designed by Miley (or helped designed by). I love the way it looks on me! Go buy it. It’s pretty much donating to charity – guilt free!

mac lipstick collection ruby woo myth oxblood snob saint gemain dodgy girl impassioned candy yum yum vegas volt viva glam miley pheromonal rebel swatches review

This is Dodgy Girl (matte) from the Kelly Osborne range so it is a limited edition one – sorry! Unfortunately for you guys it’s also my favourite Mac lipstick from the collection and it’s in the running as my favourite lipstick of all time! It’s the most amazing lavender colour and I think it’s really flattering. I love it for a bit of a bright lip! It’s matte but it’s really not drying at all. It lasts for ages as well! ♥

mac lipstick collection ruby woo myth oxblood snob saint gemain dodgy girl impassioned candy yum yum vegas volt viva glam miley pheromonal rebel swatches review

Sorry team! Another limited edition! This time it’s from the Toledo collection – you may have seen it in a previous post but it’s Oxblood (matte) and it’s another one of my favourites! I find the matte formulas on the limited edition lipsticks are much nicer than the regular mattes. This one is so creamy and it lasts for ages! It’s like a slightly lighter Kylie Jenner lip. SUPER wearable though. I love it. ♥

mac lipstick collection ruby woo myth oxblood snob saint gemain dodgy girl impassioned candy yum yum vegas volt viva glam miley pheromonal rebel swatches review


Oooh now this is a Miss White colour if I’ve ever seen one! You guys know I love bright pinks and this is the Queen of bright pink! Candy Yum-Yum (matte) is such a gorgeous colour and I don’t wear it enough. I think the problem is that it’s quite drying on my lips and I have other colours which are less drying and look almost identical. However I still think it’s a must-have for pink lovers!

mac lipstick collection ruby woo myth oxblood snob saint gemain dodgy girl impassioned candy yum yum vegas volt viva glam miley pheromonal rebel swatches review

Myth (satin) is probably my favourite nude by Mac – although I only own two of them. (I did own Creme de Nude but it was too sheer for my lips). I absolutely love it though. It’s like the perfect nude for me. It’s almost too light but I think I get away with it! Usually I’d wear it with the Chi Chi Totally Nude lip liner underneath to jazz it up a bit. I probably wouldn’t recommend this one if you’ve got darker skin than me as it may wash you out. I love the formula though, it lasts a long time and it’s just that little bit glossy which suits the colour well.

mac lipstick collection ruby woo myth oxblood snob saint gemain dodgy girl impassioned candy yum yum vegas volt viva glam miley pheromonal rebel swatches reviewPheromonal (Sheen Supreme) was in fact gifted to me by a male – I was super impressed! It’s not like any other lipstick I’ve got – and I think that’s because I usually stay away from lipsticks with sheer in the name because my lip colour is too dark for them. However I think this one has just the right amount of pigmentation and it leaves a gorgeous glossy finish on the lip. It doesn’t last for very long, but it looks darn good before it wears off. I like this one for a bit of gloss – it’s hard to apply on my lips though because the lipstick is rounded at the top and my lips are quite pointy as you can see.




mac lipstick collection ruby woo myth oxblood snob saint gemain dodgy girl impassioned candy yum yum vegas volt viva glam miley pheromonal rebel swatches review

Vegas Volt (Amplified) is a gorgeous coral orange. I’m not hugely into corals because I think they look weird on me for some reason but this is the only one I’ll wear. It’s sort of slightly pinky enough that it doesn’t wash me out too much or look too weird. I don’t get a lot of wear out of this one just because I’m scared of the colour but I should wear it more often I think. It’s got a fab finish (love those amplified’s!) and it’s nicely pigmented.

mac lipstick collection ruby woo myth oxblood snob saint gemain dodgy girl impassioned candy yum yum vegas volt viva glam miley pheromonal rebel swatches review

Bless! Saint Germain (Amplified) was my first ever Mac lipstick! Of course I was hooked in by Shaaanxo as it happens to be her favourite Mac lipstick. My younger brother bought it for me for my birthday and it’s got the most wear out of any of my lipsticks! Damn did I rock this when I first got it. It is on the light side but I think it looks really nice! I love a good baby pink and this one is the right colour for me. I would 100% recommend. Wears nicely.

mac lipstick collection ruby woo myth oxblood snob saint gemain dodgy girl impassioned candy yum yum vegas volt viva glam miley pheromonal rebel swatches review

Next one is Impassioned (Amplified); This is a gorgeous pink! It’s not too crazy bright, but it does come off quite dark on my lips. It’s super wearable and not drying. I love this one for an everyday look – and the kids at school like it too! I need to wear it more often!

mac lipstick collection ruby woo myth oxblood snob saint gemain dodgy girl impassioned candy yum yum vegas volt viva glam miley pheromonal rebel swatches review

Obviously I was getting sick of the poses so I am getting a little crazy it seems. This gorgeous number is probably my second-most-worn Mac lipstick and it’s Snob (satin). I LOVE this colour! I think it’s the most wearable of all. It’s just like the best muted pink ever made. I’ve bought about a million dupes but honestly nothing comes close to the real thing. It wears so well, and it looks damn good. I think you need this one gals.

mac lipstick collection ruby woo myth oxblood snob saint gemain dodgy girl impassioned candy yum yum vegas volt viva glam miley pheromonal rebel swatches review

Ruby Woo (Matte) is such a gorgeous red for light skin tones. It just looks crazy flattering. It’s the first red I bought (yes, I used to be scared of red) and it’s still my favourite red of all time. The only problem with this one as it’s about as dry as the desert. It’s SO dry. It drys out my lips instantly and it does not glide on. I have to use a lip balm before it or a gloss over top or else it just makes my lips look horrible. I wish it was a nicer matte formula but that’s okay.

mac lipstick collection ruby woo myth oxblood snob saint gemain dodgy girl impassioned candy yum yum vegas volt viva glam miley pheromonal rebel swatches review

Rebel (satin) is another one of my faves. I didn’t think it was going to look like this on my lips to be honest. It comes up a little more plumy than I’d hoped (I was hoping for more of a vampy purple). However I’ve grown to like it. It looks extra good with a darker lip liner (I like Leather by Colourpop). As always, it’s a pretty good formula and it wears okay. Not super long-lasting but it doesn’t come off instantly. It’s the perfect colour for autumn and I think I’ll be getting some more wear out of it very soon.


Well that’s it guys! That’s my Mac lipstick collection. Let me know what you think below! What’s your favourite Mac lipstick? More importantly are there any more that I NEED in my collection? I can’t wait to make it grow! Let me know in the comments section 🙂

Colourpop Haul Part 3! The obsession will never end…! ♥

Colourpop haul review

Good morning class,

I told you I was obsessed with Colourpop! I have since sneaked into an order with a friend and got ANOTHER Lippie Stick which I will put in my next haul (Part 4) because they have highlighters coming out soon so I’m definitely going to make another (LARGE) order.

The sad fact is that I actually need to buy myself some more storage purely for my Colourpop range. (Show me your storage! I need some inspo)

Okay, anyway this time I purchased 5 Super Shock Eye Shadows, 2 Super Shock Cheeks and 3 Lippie Stix. Not as large as my last haul but it was a goodie & I am in LOVE!
