As soon as I saw this palette I knew it was one for me. Being blessed (or cursed) with witch green eyes- all berry/purple/grape shades make them stand out more than anything else. And just look at what this palette has! ALL the colours I love. The packaging is awesome- any palette with a big mirror gets my vote, and you wouldn't believe how big the pans are- they're almost blush-sized! Cruelty free, free of parabens and talc great company ethics, INSANELY great pigmentation- I really can't rate it enough. You need it. And guess what else? They're on sale at Beauty Bliss via the link below for only $30, down from $55- huzzah!! I'd get in quick though, they are just lovely.
Have you ever seen a cuter lipstick? If you have, please tell me, because right now these babies are winning. I die over the heart shape, and I was also really impressed with how pigmented they are- the brighter shades leave a slight stain when worn off, which I love. They contain grapefruit oil, sweet orange oil, and olive oil- so you can imagine how nice they feel on your lips. The ONLY bad thing bout these is that they're all so pretty, it's virtually impossible which one to choose- but after a solid hour (or two), I decided on Sweet Coral and Candy Red. But guess what? They only cost $13.90 via the link before- YAY for Hikosencara, I love you!
I had never tried the Morgan Taylor Nail Lacquer, and sadly I missed the NZ launch as I was out of town. Thankfully the lovely Alicia from Monaco Nails & Beauty (where you can buy these, and where I'll be getting my nails done shortly- stay tuned!) sent me one of my very own. I received 'Well Spent', and it's the most beautiful dark aubergine/eggplant/purple- no frost, just a classic cream base. It's on my toes right now, and I can't wait for the lovelies at Monaco to pop it on my fingers. ALSO- all Morgan Taylor Lacquers are free of Formaldehyde, Toluene, and DBP, so that gets my vote straight away. Next up- I want to try their range of dark greens, they look incredible!
My skin flips out when it gets cold, so I need to find a moisturiser that is both gentle AND really rich. Of course Lush always has the answer, and I've been using Skin Drink moisturiser on the days when my skin is frazzled. Packed full of yummy things like evening primrose, almond, sesame, and rose oils; as well as organic avocado and aloe vera, it both soothes and hydrates your winter skin. Your skin will feel silky and smooth, and as far as moisturisers go, this one is affordable at $29.90. Perfect! Lush hits the nail on the head once again.
L'Oreal Paris are renowned for their excellent and affordable mascaras, and their latest one to hit the shelves is no exception. Because I'm pretty obsessed with my lashes lately thanks to RevitaLash, I'm always hunting for new ones to try to show them off. I love this mascara because the wand is specifically designed to give product to- and really extend the outer lashes. This gives an awesome false lash effect- and the black is a TRUE black, and super glossy. I tried to make it clumpy a la Carli Bybel (love her), but no dice. It's un-clump-able. It's such a goody, it really is!
I can't even begin to describe how much I love this product- it's the ultimate luxury body oil, and while I use it sparingly, every time I do I feel amazing! It's beautifully scented of vanilla, and consists of so many delicious plant oils like sunflower, apricot, coconut and sesame, so your skin feels absolutely amazing with it on. It is a dry oil so it absorbs quickly. I love the iridescent finish too- your skin will GLOW..and you'll smell good, and feel good. Ahhh! If I could justify using it every day, I would in a heartbeat. Love.
