This is going to be a quick post about the Too Faced Natural Eye Neutral Eye Shadow Collection which I recently received as a birthday present from the cutest Minh and Diana (they have the best nail polish blog which you should definitely check out http://madnails.blogspot.com.au )
I love this so so so so so much, I only ever really use natural eye shadow palettes so this is perfect. I have only used a few of the colours but so far, they're super pigmented, the colours transfer so well onto the skin and I am just so excited to use everything else. I have to say these girls were simply spot on with what to get me (and it's so much harder with make up since I have so many different things already). I almost don't even want to use this yet because it's just so pretty haha.
I hope you liked this little post about a little package of greatness! Till next time!

Today I am going to do another products review post with some products I have had tried out for a little while now.
Okay starting from the left going right.
1. Rimmel London's Lasting Finish Matte by Kate Moss in the Shade 113
This Lipstick is a nude colour and as the name suggests, has a matte finish. To be completely honest, I really don't like this lipstick and am quite disappointed with it. Once applied to your lips, it looks rather dry and that doesn't exactly look good at all. It isn't very pigmented either so you have to apply it a few times to get the full colour on your lips. I don't know why it looks like that, I am not sure if the other shades in this lipstick collection turn out the same way but I do not recommend it at all. Even after applying lip balm before the lipstick doesn't do much. Safe to say, I wouldn't go buy it.
2. Rimmel London's Match Perfection in Soft Beige
After trying out this foundation, I was extremely pleasantly surprised. I didn't think much of this foundation but as a drug store foundation, it has truly done a great job. I don't use foundation that much anymore but this might just make me want to. It has a very natural looking dewy finish, and it feels extremely moisturising. Simply, it's as if you don't have anything on. It is a light to medium coverage so I wouldn't recommend it for someone who is looking for full coverage. However in saying that, if you don't want something too heavy or cakey, this is perfect and also works just as well if you want to build on the coverage without being too much. As well as moisturising, it does a great job in concealing and hiding blemishes. It has an SPF of 18 so Match Perfection by Rimmel is great for everyday use. This foundation is probably my favourite foundation as of right now.
3. Garnier's Anti-dark Circles roll-on
This is a little tube of greatness. I am in my final year of high school and ain't nobody got time for sleep and looking fresh and ready for school. This year is full of stress, anxiety, sleepless nights and intense cramming. SO YES, I NEED A SEPARATE CONCEALER JUST FOR MY UNDER EYES. I do not leave without this. Although, I must admit, it is extremely important to be healthy and have a well balanced lifestyle, but sometimes for slackers like me you need a Plan B to rely on. This is my Plan B. This is a 2 in 1 tinted eye roll-on, the cream is very thin and light and I think it does give a little bit of moisture back to my tired eyes. However I do not think it does enough because it lasts until about half way through the day before drying out a bit (so it might be helpful to bring this along to reapply- although I don't really do that) Apparently it does have a bit of sunscreen in it so I guess that is a bonus protection. But in general, it does it's job in the morning and I have been using it for a little while and haven't tried anything else that has the same effect.
4. Rimmel London's Waterproof Gel Eyeliner
This is my first gel eyeliner, and so I don't really think too much of it besides the fact that it does what it needs to for me. Although it is waterproof, I feel as if every time I wing out my eyeliner, the wing part disappears half way through the day. So it's not that long lasting for me personally. However, until I get something else, this will do since I hardly use eyeliner.
I hope this has been a little helpful for you guys!

Okay, I know, tomorrow was a very long time.
Anyways, I love cupcake stands, I think they are the most cutest, prettiest, delicate things ever. However I love seeing them being used for jewellery. I have had my eye on one since forever. So finally, while in a store that sold decorative household items and all that glam, I saw this particular stand and simply could not leave without it. I don't even bake, but thought it would be pretty cool to have as a jewellery stand. This one I picked up is a soft paste porcelain (bone china) stand with the plate going from the largest in size from the bottom and smallest at the top. The detailing on this is simply gorgeous. The items on it aren't final, I might switch it up a bit, but as for now, the bottom plate holds some necklaces, the middle contains rings and the top one contains finer jewellery that I tend to use the most.
See you soon!

OKAY, TODAY WAS PROBABLY ONE OF THE MOST AWESOME DAYS EVER. I feel extremely lucky to be given two Oroton Briefcase handbags from my dearest mother. However, I will dedicate an entire post on that later, I posted an instagram picture of the two so if you want to check that out now, click here... what I really wanted to talk about was a particular candle that I also purchased today because IT JUST SMELLS SOOOOOOO GOOD. It's one of MOR's scented candles in Cotton Candy & Vanilla that comes in a cute tin sort of can. I highly recommend this particular candle for anyone who likes thick, sweet caramel scents... in fact I am burning it right now.
New post up tomorrow!

I thought I'd do a make up haul and show you all what I purchased recently and why I decided to buy these goodies!
1. Revlon Photo Ready Translucent Finisher 001
I just desperately needed a powder to finish off and set my make up and I got really annoyed with using just normal foundation powder as it just added to my make up making it look heavier.
2. Revlon Photo Ready Bronzer 100 Bronze & ChicFinally, I have my hands on a matte bronzer, I've been stuck with a shimmery bronzer for a while and since it's colder, I wanted a matte look for winter as I tend to use shimmery products for a 'Summer Glow' sort of look.
3. Smooch Duo Eyeshadow in Suede
This palette is a rather dramatic silver and bronze and it just looked so pretty together I couldn't help myself since it was only $9.99
4. Calvin Klein Long Wear Pressed Powder in Light (Natural Purity)
I just wanted a powder that was not as heavy as the two powders I normally use. I think this would be great just for a light coverage.
5. Smooch Mascara
I saw the brush of this mascara and thought it wouldn't be too bad and it wouldn't hurt to try it out.
6. Harajuku Lovers Perfume in Music
I HAVE BEEN DYING TO GET THIS AND FINALLY I HAD THE CHANCE TO PICK THIS UP. I SERIOUSLY AM IN LOVE WITH THIS CUTE BOTTLE AND THE SCENT IS JUST SO SWEET AND GIRLY, I CAN NOT WAIT TO WEAR THIS.
Anywho, hope you liked this post, see you soon!

I love candles. I love oil burners as well and even more so, I love scented candles. Lately it has been getting a little colder here and having a candle going just makes it more cozy and inviting to stay inside. Not to mention the lovely scents you can get from oils and scented candles. I am yet to take pictures of all the stuff I have candle related, but how cute are these?
Oh yes, I am guilty of having romantic nights by myself, candle going, a nice cup of tea and a good chick flick/listening to Michael Bublé.
Anyways, will be back with a new post so stay tuned!
