New Layout - Black & White

Hello my lovelies! I have a new layout up! It has been awhile since I last revamped this blog so I decided to make a couple of changes. I went for a more monochromatic feel this time with the black & white. I can't believe that Christmas is only 2 weeks away! This year has gone super super fast but it was full of so many memories.

Working on a few new posts, let me know what you would like to see here!

It's that time of the month again! Woooo... and also this is my 100th post :) For the month of May I got into bronzing a bit more. In the warmer months my skin tends to get a little more oily / combo so I tend to gravitate to dryer / matte products. These are some of my faves for the month of May:

  • Quo by Orly Nailpolish in Femme Fatale - gorgeous neon pink
  • Rimmel Lash Accelerator Endless
  • MAC lipstick in Candy Yum Yum #AllPinkEverything
  • Maybelline Fit Me Shine Free Foundation - Golden Beige (helps with my oily / combo skin)
  • Maybelline Dream Wonder Powder - I like the consistency of this
  • Lorac Pro Palette!!
  • Sephora Blush - Orange Punchy Sunbaked
  • First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream
I have been really loving these products for the month of May. I would love to know what all of you have been loving :) I enjoy reading your comments and getting ideas! So, please leave them below...

It'sJudyTime & That'sHeart Palette by BH Cosmetics Haul

To try and make up for the fact that I was half a month late with my favourites I am posting another post! This one is on the It'sJudyTime and That'sHeart Palettes by BH Cosmetics. I purchased these babies a couple of weeks ago on an impulse buy (well most of my cosmetic purchases are impulse buys lol). They arrived a few days ago so I haven't been able to really dig in and use them much. I have swatched some of the shadows and so far so good. 

I have more up close pictures of both palettes after the jump. If you would like swatches and a review of each palette let me know in the comments below :)


January 2014 Favourites

  • Urban Decay Eye Primer in Sin - pretty champagne base!
