So I've Picked Up A Few Things Lately....


Between new launches landing on my desk and my apparent shopping addiction, I've accrued quite the haul recently. Over the past month or so (this wasn't all from one shopping trip, I promise), I've been able to own and test out these products and I thought I'd share the results in as few words as possible but still getting my point across. Here we go...

To break it down:
NYX Milk Jumbo Eye Pencil: $9.95 at Target
Great base for eyeshadows to really make the colours stand out, creases badly without primer.
Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs in Medium: $26.99 at Priceline
Bought this for my upcoming trip to Cairns, smooths the colour and appearance of your legs and doesn't budge. Watch out for dry patches.
Revlon Photoready Skinlights in Bare Light: $29.95 at Priceline
Gorgeous. Works as a primer, mixed in with foundation, as a highlight or my personal favourite, slathered all over as a foundation.
Sanctuary Spa Thermal Detox Mask: $19.95 at Priceline
This is helping calm the angry spots I have at the moment. It's a thermal mask so it heats up and doesn't 'set'.
Bourjois Mega Liner: (Not fully stocked yet) at Priceline
Bourjois' newest Australian launch leaves a lot to be desired. The formula is nice but I'm not a fan of the applicator, it's too boxy.
NYX San Paulo Soft Matte Lip Cream: $12.95 at Target
Smells devine, love the formulation and other colours in the range but this shade isn't for me.
Kit First Date Lipglass: $17.95 at Kit Cosmetics
I have a special place in my heart for light pink lipglosses (you'll see more soon) and this doesn't disappoint. It's slightly stickier than other glosses meaning it stays around and the smell is amazing.
Chi Chi Naturals Palette: $22.95 Myer
These Chi Chi palettes are great for beginners, so many to choose from and less than half the price of the naked palettes but on par in quality. This is a slightly cooler, smokier offering.
Chi Chi Bases Palette: $22.95 at Myer
A potential dupe for the naked 3 palette, this rosy toned offering is just gorgeous.
Bourjois Jasper Rose Powder Blush: $20 at Priceline
Some have said that this blush is a dupe for Benefit's Rockateur, it's similar and the finish is nice and sheeny. Has a very dated, old-lady perfumed smell.
Illamasqua Hollow Pigment: $27.50 at Myer
Great for us fairer gals to contour with. If you're like me and you burn just thinking about the sunshine then this is a great contour colour for you. Also great as a base for eyeshadow.
Revlon Charmed Cream Blusher: $26.95 at Priceline
Love the formula, The colour is great for Autumn/Winter. Would look gorgeous on deeper skintones.
Antipodes Aura Face Mask: $48.99 at Priceline
I haven't actually used this yet, I'll have to get back to you on that one.
Nars Deep Throat Blush: $45 at Mecca Cosmetica
This has been my everyday blush since I bought it. Need I say more? 
Revlon Racy Rose Powder Blush: $26.95 at Priceline
This one is a bit bright for me right now but I'm sure it will look nice in the warmer months.
Chi Chi Beautiful Day Baked Eye Shadow: $14.95 at Myer
I wore this out on my date last night, absolutely loved it. Wears well both wet and dry but I would recommend wearing a primer underneath.
NYX White Retractable Eyeliner: $9.95 at Target
A cheeky purchase for an upcoming video, stay tuned.

and breathe.
