Look what came to mama!

If you've been following my blog and youtube for a while..  you'd know I have a teeny obsession with lipsticks.  Just a bit.  Little bit. Okay, it's quite a big obsession. 
I have around 50 lipsticks..  not sure how many exactly..   Last time I checked I was at 45 ..  but I think it's slightly over 50 now. 
Let me know if you'd like to see a Lipstick Collection video,  I have gotten some requests after my makeup collection video which you can check out below :D

Ok. SO what did I get?!

After I promised myself I won't be getting any more lipsticks .. I ordered 4 lipsticks from
Wet n Wild Mega Last Lip Color in Pinkerbell (2012 new shade!) Wet n Wild Mega Last Lip Color in 24 Carrot Gold (2012 new shade!) Wet n Wild Mega Last Lip Color in Dollhouse Pink (2012 new shade!) NYX matte lipstick in Perfect Red. 

After seeing countless posts about the Wet n Wild new lipsticks especially  Rebekkah Celeste's amazing looks on her blog (…

Face product of the week! 30/03/12

I wanted to share with you my face product of the week.  this weekly ordeal is going to feature ONE product  I have been loving to use a lot this week. It can be anything from concealer, to powder, to blush, to highlight.. ANYTHING I use on my face basically.. 

So this is basically a post on a product that deserve to be hyped. :D
I love these kind of favourites post and all..  because in a review I might say "oh this is a great product" but do I actually wear it a lot?..

So the face product  spotlight of the week: ESSENCE my skin tinted moisturiser in light  [REVIEW HERE] I just LOVE and ADORE this tinted moisturiser.  I have been using this ALL week. Except for yesterday and today,  because as I mentioned on my facebook fan page (HERE)  my skin has totally dried out, possibly because of the weather change,  and this (and virtually anything else) applied quite chalky. 
But other than that.  It's a great product for when my skin is normal,  and I just ADORE …

Lip Combination of the week! 30/03/12

I wanted to share with you my lip combination of the week.  It can be products paired together,  one lip product,  a rediscovery of a lipstick or anything my lips have been wearing a lot lately..
So this is basically a post on products that deserve to be hyped. :D
I love these kind of favourites post and all..  because in a review I might say "oh this is a great product" but do I actually wear it a lot?!
I happen to own.. around 50 lipsticks... and I have worn all of them..  but there are some I reach for over and over and over. :D
The spotlight for this week is:
NYX round lipstick in narcissus  & Barry M lipgloss in bubblegum

 This is like the perfect bright cool toned lip combination. It's not overpowering, or an in your face combination,  perfect for daytime. 
Personally I don't really like NYX's round lipstick in narcissus on its own. It looks unnatural to me,  and it seems to have a very slight metallic sheen to it.  You can read my review on…

My little obsession with bright nails and neon blue this spring !

I have a little obsession with neons. I'm blaming Lara from Boffism.  You evil human being.  Haha not true.  I love her actually, she's A.D.O.R.A.B.L.E. 
But.. I developed an obsession with neon blue.  I bought a bright a$$ neon blue legging the other day... I bought neon blue pumps..  and I even found a nail polish to match.
Now honestly.. I didn't plan to buy all these neon blue items.  I'm just drawn to the colours and I end up buying them. 
Anyway.  I'm la-la-LOVING this nail polish colour.  It's MUA nail polish in shade  #9 And before I say anything else. I have to tell you.  You need 3 coats to get this colour.  which kind of sucks,  I'm more of a one coat- maximum 2 nail polish coats gal. 
My time is precious, you see.  Not really.  But I hate waiting for nail polish to dry. 
These are not exactly quick drying.  But if applied patiently and with a topcoat,  it LOOKS great. 
I applied the Essence nail hardener as a base coat and  …

Essence my skin tinted moisturiser - both shades - [review w/ swatches!!]


I have a review on a product I've been really loving lately.
So I'm definitely enjoying writing this review :D

I just featured this in my Dyna's Beauty Lab video :D

PACKAGING A squeezy tube, has some awesome fun print on it. Very cute You get a lot of product in it .. 50 ml so it lasts a LONG time..

TEXTURE I LOVE the texture. It is moisturising and hydrating. Great for normal to dry skin
(not for really dry skin though.. it would apply blotchy unfortunately) Doesn't feel oily and is in fact oil free..

SHADE I believe the product comes only in two shades, light and medium to dark they both have a strong salmon-peacvhy colour, which will brighten your skin making itlook healthier When swatched they look VERY different HOWEVER the shades are in fact very forgiving, there is not much pigmentation to it, and it almost melts into your skin. Right now I use the light one.. in summer I'll probably use the medium to dark one

COVERAGE Don't. I r…

ELF studio lip liner in red [review w/ swatches!!]


I have been meaning to review these ELF products for the longest time,
but I have so many planned posts,
and so many reviews to post,
I'm trying to gradually work on them
and post them..
the first ELF review I have is on their studio line lip liner in the shade red.

I think these are quite underrated as an ELF product,
I think they deserve to be hyped :)
Read below to know why :)

Very sleek, closes thoroughly,
comes with a brush at the other end.
One of the two brushes has naughty strands
I find that it has very little actual product, s
o if you'd like to use the lipliner all over your lip,
 it won't last you a lifetime.
Twist up packaging.
Inconsistent amount of product.
I had more product in the red one than in the natural one. 

TEXTURE: super creamy

LASTING POWER: decent, but fades away faster than most of my lipliners.

First of all, it is very important to note that the shades
 of the products in the packaging look deeper than when swatch…
