Product Empties: September

Hello beauties,

As promised, I gave you all a break from my product empties. But now we’re back with vengeance! I’ve saved up so many empties, that I’ve got so many back up empties for next month. My recommendation is, get a coffee or a wine and settle in for the long haul xx

Nivea Post Shave Balm

When Nikki Tutorials raved about this product as a primer I jumped on the bandwagon. Its good but not amazing for my skin type as for me my concerns are my pores and oily skin. Click here for a full review.

If you like silicone primers than this is awesome. I don’t mind silicone primers so this was fine for me but not an all time favourite. Click here for a full review of the Klara Cosmetics brand.

Guide to Red Lipsticks

Hello beauties,

You all know my weakness for red lipsticks. With my obsession with red lipsticks, I think I’m close to an expert on the subject. With that being said, I wanted to share some of my faves so that you have a few options when Valentine’s Day comes around xx

Maybelline Color Drama in Fab Orange

Great dupe for the NARS Velvet Lip Pencils. They’re creamy, great pigmentation and lasting power. Did I say that they’re only $9.95? I also think the shade Fab Orange is a close dupe for MAC Lady Danger, but not as matte.

MAC Lipstick in Lady Danger

I think this would easily of been my favourite lipstick of 2016! I love that its an orangey red that makes any outfit look glam! Because its matte, its really long lasting but also a little drying.

Makeup of the Day: Drugstore Work Makeup

Hello beauties,

Today is my first day back to work. While I wish I was still on holidays, I kinda like the idea of putting on makeup again. Today, I bring to you a simple work makeup look using just drugstore products. The whole look took me about 20 to 30 minutes to put together.

1. Klara Cosmetics Zero Pores No Fine Lines Primer*

This is a great drugstore primer for oily skin gals. It has a silicone feel which I don’t mind but I know a lot of people don’t like the feel of silicone.  

2. Rimmel Lasting Finish 25hr Foundation- 400 Natural Beige*

You don’t see me using this much on my Instagram as is its quite light for me. But for the purpose of this blog post and variety I decided to use it. It’s a great medium to full coverage, long lasting foundation. The only down side is the limited shade range.

3. Thin Lizzy Crème Concealer- Pacific Sun*

4. Revlon Sculpt and Highlight Contour Kit-Medium*

I’ve been giving this palette a lot of love! After applying my concealer I applied some of the Banana shade under my eyes to set the concealer. Onto the cheeks, mixing the bronzer and contour shade I applied this in a 3 shape using the contour brush provided. I love this palette to create a subtle sculpted look.
