Too-Faced Peanut Butter & Honey Palette: Feeling Nutty Look

Hey Gorgeous People,

Finished Look

The other week I wrote a review on the Peanut Butter & Honey eyeshadow palette by Too-Faced and I mentioned that the palette came with three suggested eyeshadow looks. The first one is called Feeling Nutty and I thought I would show you how it looks!

I start of with just a little bit of base makeup on and my eyebrows filled in.

Firstly, I appled Bee Sweet from my lash line to my brow for a base to make blending the shadows easier.


Secondly, I blend Feelin' Nutty into the crease and blend it into my lower lash line for a smokier effect. Feelin' Nutty is probably one of my favourite shades from this palette mainly because it is really easy to work with and has great pigment.




















Lastly, I press Honey Brittle onto my lid. This shade isn't one of my favourites because it just lacks the pigment that some of the others do. I didn't mind it too much in this look but I didn't think it was the right colour for this eyeshadow look.



I swiped on some Maybelline Great Lash mascara and it made the eyeshadow look more polished and finished.


I think what I love about this suggested eyeshadow look from the palette is that it is really simple and easy. You don't have to use a million different eyeshadows and brushes! Also, with spring coming, I think it is a really nice, bright look to just throw on in the morning. And you can even make it more dramatic by adding winged eyeliner or smoking Going nuts out into the outer V of your eyelid and down into the lower lash line. 

What's your opinion on this look? xx

Review: Mario Badescu Facial Sprays

Hey Gorgeous People,

Recently, I bought the two available facial sprays by Mario Badescu Skincare from Mecca Maxima.
The first one has aloe, herbs and rosewater, and the second has aloe, cucumber and green tea. It claims that once you have used this product, you won't want to be without it. It claims to set makeup, soothe skin in dehydrating conditions, or to give skin a quick boost. You can mist it over your face, skin and hair.

I have heard so much about this product all over Instagram and social media, and, because I do like to keep up with what is being used by currently, I went ahead and got it.

And I must say, these face spray do exactly what they say! I use it to set my makeup and my face will stay put all day, even if I'm out dancing or clubbing. I use this as well to just hydrate my face and neck when I'm not wearing makeup, especially in the morning. I haven't yet used it on my hair because I feel like it leaves a small bit of tacky residue on your face for a few minutes after application and I don't want it to make my hair look greasy, especially if I apply it in the morning.

Also, I got the smaller bottles (118ml), which are only $9, and you do get quite a bit of wear out of it. I've been using it every day with multiple applications for over a week and I've only used a centimetre down the bottle of product.

If you're looking for a super quick and easy way to hydrate and set makeup, I honestly recommend this. The hype is totally worth it!

What did you think of this product? Do you have any products like this that I should try?

Review: Too Faced Peanut Butter & Honey Eyeshadow Palette

Hey Gorgeous People,

It was my birthday last month and one of my presents was the Too Faced Peanut Butter & Honey eyeshadow palette.


I have wanted an yellow/mustard eyeshadow for quite a while now so I was so excited about this palette. The palette cost $52 and, even though it would've been nice to get a little more product for that cost, you are paying for the brand name as well.

Now for the review! I love all the base shades (Creamed Honey, Bee Sweet and Queen Bee) because they are all really nicely pigmented and silky. Also, Creamed Honey has a little sparkle in it which I love. The eyeshadow shades that I am really happy with and absolutely adore are Peanut Butter, Bees Knees and Feelin' Nutty because they are super pigmented and I just love the colours! I really wish that the other three (Going Nuts, Honey Brittle and Honey Buns) were a bit more pigmented because then they would all be perfect. But, unfortunately, for some reason these shades just weren't as pigmented when I tried to use them.

I tested out the three eyeshadow looks that they recommended in a little brochure/booklet thing inside the palette and when I first did them I was really not sure about them at all. But now looking at them again after a while, I actually really like them all. 

If you want a little tutorial on how to do each look, I would be glad to do some posts about them.

Anyway, all-in-all it is a good palette but probably not worth $52.

July 2017: My Favourites

Hey Gorgeous People!

Another month comes and so does a blog post about my favourite things for the month. Seeing as this was my birthday month, you will finally see some new favourites, hallelujah! I hope you like these and comment below what your favourite beauty products, clothing items, TV shows or movies.

Makeup
Too Faced 'Peanut Butter & Honey' Eyeshadow Palette:
I will do a proper review of this palette soon but I really do love this! I got it for my birthday earlier this month and I have been playing around with different looks all month. For $52, I can understand the appeal because it has really beautiful shades.




Maybelline Great Lash Mascara:
Oh my goodness!! I have tried quite a few mascaras but this one takes the cake! I loved the Maybelline Full n' Soft Mascara for so long but, even though it was labelled as waterproof, it would always leak and make me look a little raccoon-ish. This one is fantastic! It didn't run down my face even when I took it on the ultimate test drive - going out dancing.


Rimmel Match Perfection Silky Loose Face Powder:
Another new purchase of the month! I have only worn this once but it made my foundation just stick and stay perfectly. I thought I looked flawless all night dancing.


Mario Badescu Facial Spray:
I don't even know how to express in words my love for these mists! Not only do they set your makeup, they just refresh your skin and hydrates. They are perfect for a quick boost of hydration throughout the day. Once again, they really helped to make my makeup last all night when I went out dancing the other night.


TV Shows
Miss Fischer's Murder Mysteries:
Who doesn't love an Australian Sherlock Holmes?! I love a good murder mystery plus Miss Fischer is such an amazing character. 

Movies
James Bond 'Spectre' and 'Skyfall':
I never thought to really watch the Bond films because I never thought I'd enjoy them ... and then I saw Daniel Craig! I love them! I love me a bit of action and drama, and I can't wait to watch the other James Bond films.

What are your favourites new purchases or regular loves of the month?

19th Birthday!

Hey Gorgeous People,

Last week, on the 12th of July, it was my birthday!!
And while I am well and truly no longer the dancing queen, I had an absolutely amazing, relaxed day.

The night before my birthday, my parents gave me a gift card for Mecca Maxima! Hallelujah! I've wanted to shop there for forever! That night, I also got some gifts from my sisters - some pink bunny slippers (LOVE), Elizabeth Arden 'Sunflowers' perfume, and a lot of socks (I absolutely love socks). As if this wasn't enough, the next morning, from my parents, I got two new cardigans (one black with grey stripes and a blue one), a reddish-rose coloured dress, a stainless steel cookware set and a glass ovenware set. I had asked for the last two for when I leave home so I am a little more prepared.



That day me and three of my sisters went to Charlestown Square and of course I went to Mecca Maxima! I ended up buying the Too Faced Peanut Butter + Honey Eyeshadow Palette as well as the Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater.

Later that night, my eldest sister, and some friends came over for my birthday dinner. I got a cute lamp and a bed set, money, and a bathing set with body wash, soap, lotion and body butter.


For dinner, I really wanted to have breakfast food. So we had bacon, scrambled eggs, some stir-fried veggies, juice, waffles, strawberries, banana, ice-cream and Nutella! It was so delicious!
I had such an amazing day just relaxing with friends and family.

What is your best birthday memory? xx

Green With Envy - Makeup Look

Hey Gorgeous People,

Finished Look

I'm pretty sure I did a look like this with the same eyeshadow palette but I wanted to refine it and make it more wearable because I think that a look like this is actually quite classic and beautiful.

I have been really unsure about the colour green but I've read that people with blue eyes suit green eyeshadow so I also wanted to test that theory.

I started with a fresh, clean and moisturised face as one always should (check out my skincare routine here).


I'm falling back in love with this mini palettes! I recently used one by Revlon to do a smokey bronze eyeshadow look. This time, I used this green eyeshadow palette by Maybelline that I got for my birthday a few years back.


Using a flat eyeshadow brush and a fluffy crease brush, I put the light green shade across my lid and blended to just above the crease.



Using a round fluffy brush, I then mixed the medium and darker green shades, then blended them into the outer V of my eyelid and through my crease. I built this shade up as I didn't to completely overpower the entire look with this shade.



Then, with a more precise crease brush, I blended the black-green in the outer V of my eyelid and midway through my crease.



To highlight, I used the palest highlight shade beneath the black-green with a flat eyeshadow brush across the inner corner of my eye and then onto the mid section of eyelid.



This wouldn't be complete without some winged eyeliner using my BYS 1 Day Tattoo Eyeliner and some Maybelline Full n' Soft Mascara.



I then did the rest of my normal face makeup and some Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid Lipstick in Shade 35 Rebel Red.



So I guess the theory is right because I absolutely love this! Now I just have to find an outfit to suit it. Any ideas?

Chokers For Days!

Hey Gorgeous People,

I have always been sceptical but curious of the whole choker trend. I remember as a young kid seeing my older sisters with those stretchy plastic ones and I just couldn't imagine that they would be that comfortable. But I was on one of my many trips to KMart and they had a pack of 3 chokers that actually looked quite nice so I thought I would buy them and try them out. Of course, I didn't expect any great amount of quality from KMart but they didn't turn out too bad.

As you can see, all three of them are fabric chokers and not the plastic ones. This was just my preference because I like the way they look over the twisted plastic ones.



The first one is a thin suede band with a gold coloured ring in the centre. I really liked this one when I first saw it, and still do, but the points where the band is folded around the centre ring is slightly off centre so you can see the folded over edges on the back. I don't mind just snipping these bits off though. Chokers are surprisingly comfortable but I was unsure as to whether they were supposed to sit at the bottom of my neck or a little higher up. It ended slipping down to the bottom of my neck anyway.



The second is a burgundy coloured suede band that is a little thicker than the previous choker. I love this colour so much and always have so I was so glad there was a choker like this in the pack.



The third choker is a plan black, thick band of a fabric that I can't really identify. It feels like plastic fabric basically. But it is still comfortable and I ended up not really noticing that I even had a choker on.

I think chokers are a really great addition to many outfits just because it is simple and can change the whole dynamic of an outfit when compared to a necklace. I found that I felt that my neck was slimmer and longer when I was wearing a choker, which I really enjoy even though it may not look any different to a passerby.

What is your opinion on chokers?
