All About That Base #01 - MAC Studio Fix Fluid

This is the first of a (hopefully, if I can manage to keep it up) long series of foundation reviews. I did some inventory and I currently have 84 foundations. Yes, 84. And I promise they are all within the 24 month period. So as you can see, I clearly have not held back ever since my beauty addiction escalated to a point of no return when I fell pregnant and stopped going to work. First up for review is  one that I was uncertain to feature as I hadn;t worn it in quite a few months; MAC's cult Studio Fix Fluid

Monthly Marvels: January 2015

January has been humid, hot, sticky, unbelievably sunny and then incredibly cold, rainy, thunder storms and gloominess. Its not doubt I had to pull out some big guns to get myself through the month.

Laura Mercier Mini Caviar Stick Eye Colour Collection

I have only just discovered Laura Mercier about two years ago and from everything I've tried, the brand is super promising. As it is a relatively new brand to me, I more easily impressed as the quality of the products are superb and perform at a professional makeup artistry level. Last week I picked up the holiday caviar stick miniature set and wow, just wow.

NARS Laser Cut Palette and Virtual Domination Palette for Holiday 2014

I told you it was that time of year. Gorgeous palettes galore! More limited edition christmas palettes to fuel my make up addiction. If you love all things beauty, you would know to keep your eyes peeled for NARS holiday collections because the man is a genius just gets it done every year. He's cheek palettes fly off the shelves and in Australia, sell out within a couple of hours because of quantity issues. I haven't bought any of the single eyeshadows, blush and lip products (yet) there are so much offerings all across the board and I have just, for the time being, picked up what I thought I couldn't live without.

MAC Keepsakes Gold Lip & Eye Bag

Holiday collections...they pull you in with their fancy packaging, use trigger words such as "value set" and "gift" to persuade us that we will actually be doing our bank accounts a favor by purchasing this "exclusive" and "otherwise unobtainable item". In short, we buy it because our FOMO kicks in. This was the case for me anyway, I had to store hop to find this set as they were selling out FAST. 

This set contains a mineralize eyeshadow quad in Rarefied (limited edition), a mineralize rich lipstick in Posh Tone (permanent), a mineralize glass in Modest (permanent) and a good-sized dark grey/silver glitter cosmetics bag.

Benefit Holiday Gift Set 2014 - Complexion Confections & Sugarglam Fairies

The day after I had come back from visiting family overseas I popped into my local Myer to see what new products and collections have come in to the beauty department. The benefit christmas sets were unmissable! If you have not heard before, benefit comes up with very practical, reasonably priced and a fairly large variety of gift sets housed in cute and quirky packaging each year. Out of probably around 8 sets ranged from as little at $20 to $150 i picked out two that I thought were great value for money and what I am actually in need of.

Stila Color Balm Lipstick in Olivia and Vivienne

I wonder why these Stila Color Balm Lipsticks aren't raved about more in the blog-o-sphere as they are simply amazing. I'm kicking myself for not knowing about these earlier to help with my horribly chronic dry lips. This could have saved me countless times for being caught out with dry flaky lips.
