#All about...

23/04/2014

Brows are an incredibly personal thing when it comes to makeup and lately I have been deciding how most like my brows.  In general I like to sport a fuller brow more natural brow, but don't get mo wrong its not like I have two caterpillars chillin' on my forehead.  I just like to have my eyebrows to be shaped naturally, I find this to frame my face nicely and just suits my overall preference. I get my eyebrows threaded every 2 weeks, might seem pretty frequent but it I like them to be groomed and I really like the finish treading gives.  

When it comes to makeup or my 'eyebrow routine' (not that I really have one) I don't like using brow gels/mascaras.  I prefer powders and wax pencils.  I find wax type products give me the best hold and soft , structured brow I'm looking for, I also find them convenient and easy to use.

Oldies but goodies...

Elf eyebrow kit - Medium and Maybelline Mastershape - Softbrown

These were the first brow products I ever used.  I found them to be easy to use and provided me with a great tool to get used to the idea of 'filling in' my brows and matched my hair/brow colour perfectly.  I love -the convenience of the Mastershape, it has a built in spooly and holds the brow well.  One pet- peeve I have with this brow pencil is the sharpening.  Its the hardest thing to sharpen and never really gets a nice point (in my experience).  The Elf browkit, is pretty stock standard and is loved by many for a good reason.  It has a nice light powder to run though the brows and a really nice wax for shaping.  I like this kit but it hasn't seen much love lately but is something I always keep in my collection, not only does this last for a very long time it is also great if your in a super time crunch, just get some of the wax on your finger, run it over your brows a couple of times and you should be good to go.
Current favourites...

Sleek Brow Sytlist - Medium and Urban Decay Basics
Sleek brow stylist:  This is my new love when it comes to brows and is very reminiscent of the Brow Architect by Hourglass (I have owned this and loved it!), maybe even a dupe when considering price etc.  Just like the Hourglass Architect, the Eyebrow Stylist  has the 2-in-1 function, one side you'll find a generous brush (not as good as the Mastershape), and on the other side waxy eyebrow pencil. It has a nice triangular shape allowing you to really control the tail end of the brow and then fill in the the head of the brow.  Because of the tapered aspect of the pencil you can also make little strokes mimicking hairs if you are aiming to change the shape of your brow.  I do prefer the Hourglass but this has been a gem and definitely worth trying out, especially if your into subtle natural looking brow.

Lest get up close and personal 
As you can see I don't need all that much to shape my brows but the Stylist gives me definition, hold and lift
When it comes to the Basics palette it really has it all.  I like to use Faint through the tail and most of the head of the brow and then use a little of naked 2 in the front of the brow to soften and give a slight fade, I then use a spooly and comb through the brows.  After that I like to use foxy to highlight.

As I mentioned brows are personal, at the moment I'm just having fun with my brows trying new products and letting them be a little more natural and little less 'perfect'.  I don't use concealer to make them polished and haven't branched out to pomade and the likes (not that I wont in the future) and try to keep this aspect of my makeup a little more soft.

How do you wear your brows?  I would love to know your favourite products... I am interested in trying out Gimme Brow, have you used this?

Easter makeup

19/04/2014

Whatever your reasons for celebrating Easter there is one thing that will bring most of us together and that is...  chocolate lol!  I thought it would be fitting to have a look through my collection and find some Easter goodies hidden within my stash, so I gathered my basket and went searching.  Here are my Easter picks all related to makeup.  


When looking through my collection I had one idea in mind, the item either had to have a chocolate themed name and or colour.  I also thought it would be cute to add a little nod to the Easter bunny so you will see that in the face section.  So lets get into this chocolate frenzy.



EYES

Too faced Chocolate Bar Palette:  Of course this had to be part of an Easter makeup post!  Its practically made with the Easter bunny in mind haha.  This palette has 16 shades, from pale beige to deep bronze and a few pops of colour to boot.  Each shadow is infused with a sweet scent of cocoa that lingers on the eye for while and this makes the overall experience while using this palette a dream.  This is an amazing pallete offering boths mattes and shimmers, most shadows are beautifully rich in pigment soft, buttery, and dense in texture and blend like a dream.  You can create smooth, rich chocolaty looks that are both endearing and sweet.   
Use the left side of this palette to create a truly chocolate themed eye
Clinique Chubby Stick Shadow Tint for Eyes-Fuller Fudge: I love the concept of these because I love cream eyeshadows, but it’s not all fluffy bunnies-I have an issue with them.  The eye tints give a sheer wash of colour onto the lids which is buildable and very blendable, but I don't find these to be long wearing, which is a shame as the price in NZ for these are pretty high.  Fuller fudge is a gorgeous chocolate brown shade-perfect for in the crease or all over the lid for a more dramatic, smokey look.

FACE

Bourjois Bronzer Primer and Bronzing Powder: I love the bronzing primer.  I find it to be a velvety, blendable formula for a warmed complexion, perfect for a natural bronzed glow and subtle contour.  The bronzing primer has a great wear time on me and stays matte throughout the day.  I don't use this as a primer as its dark enough for me as is.  I don't liken this to a true chocolate scent but a more fruity chocolate. When it comes to the powder its a love hate relationship.  Sometimes I love the subtle  healthy tanned glow its provides and other times I am left thinking "have I even bronzed or contoured today?".  I like to use my XO beauty bronzer bursh as it is quite dense and picks up enough product.

NYX Blush - Mocha:  When I think of mocha, a rich heady chocolate colour comes to mind but this is not the case with this blush, instead Mocha is a lovely deep pink.  I love this blush all year round.  It has gives a pretty matte pink flush to the cheek and as with all NYX blushes, it is really pigmented and has fantastic wear throughout the day.  It compliments any makeup look I choose to do and just looks so flawless.  

Benefit Boxed Blush - Dainty:  This is my nod to the Easter Bunny.  Dainty is a soft, shimmery pink, that reminds me of a fluffy pink bunny.  Everything about this blush screams cute and sweet.  It looks natural and just makes me glow beautifully.  I use Dainty as more of a 'top coat', adding a soft shimmer to any blush, because even on my fare skin it doesn't quite flush the cheek.  I also use this blush as a highlighter.

LIPS

Maybelline ColorSensational lipstick - Tantalising Taupe:  This is a perfect nude for me.  Its not too opaque that it washes me out but provides enough pop of colour, no coclealer lips for me, lol.  Paired with a chocolaty smokey eye, Tantalising Taupe will finish of the look perfectly.  Just like the other ColourSensational lippies I've tried in the past, this is creamy, pigmented and feels lovely and light on the lips.  I will definitely be getting some more..

NARS Velvet Matte Lip Penceil - Walkyrie:    This is such a unique colour and so hard to exaplain.  I never thought I would pick up a color like this but I'm seriously obsessed with it. It's not for everyone, but I think it has enough warmth in it to keep it from being a "90's brown" lip colour and yet this browny, maroon lipstick makes me think of Buffy or Clueless when I wear it, which I don't mind.  If you have dry lips this is  not the lip pencil for you, like a true matte you can expect this lipstick to be long wearing and slightly drying.  I really like Walkyrie. It's an unexpected favorite because I never thought I would love a brown lip color. If you love matte lipsticks and deep autumn colours then this is for you!

Revlon Lip Butter - Raspberry Pie:  This is an honorable mention as the colour although not chocolate themed does make me think of sweets.  Its a juicy raspberry colour that its both pigmented and hydrating on the lips.  To me this is like the beautiful foil surrounding a chocolate egg.  Just like a foil wrapper it completes the Easter fun and adds a stunning pop of colour to the face.


So there you have lovelies, my Easter post.  I hope you have a happy and safe Easter weekend and have a great time however you celebrate this wee holiday xx

Haul time

18/04/2014

Recently I have been getting more into blushes and have been building up my blush collection.  I needed some more baby/light pink toned blushes in my collection, as well as some darker pinks so I hoped online and did some shopping.

I had been wanting to try out some Sleek products but was a little hesitant because I had bought one of their eyeshadows palettes and was less than impressed.  Knowing that Sleek was well known for their blushes and seeing one of the blush palettes I purchased in this haul on YouTube lately, I was confident that these blushes would be great, and I was right.

I puchased my Sleek products from Beautybliss (NZ), each palette cost $22.00 and I think they are totally worth it.  For the price of one MAC blush I was able to get 6 pigmented long wearing blushes, perfect for travelling and adding that cute pink flush I was looking for!  Needless to say I am super excited to use these during the day to day and playing around with light pink cheeks!!
Blush By 3 - Pink Lemonade, Eyebrow Stylist - Medium, Blush by 3 - Pink Sprint, Contour Kit - Light, True Colour  - Baby Doll
I also got a lipstick, Baby Doll, which I find it to be creamy but needs building to get an opaque colour. Unfortunately that colour is totally wrong for, its far too light for me to pull of so I will probably use it as an ombre colour.  I will definitely try a different colour as the formula seems really nice.  As well as the lipstick I picked up an eyebrow pencil and Contour kit, which I love.
From top:  Blush by 3 - Pink Sprint and Pink Lemonade

All in all this time round I LOVED my Sleek purchases.  They are all pigmented, well priced, the packaging is sleek and sturdy and wear really nicely!  I would recommenced these products to anyone as they have great colour selections in the Blush by 3 palettes, as well as single blushes (which I will get soon) and great lipsticks at a good price.
From top (left to right):  Contour Kit - Medium, Pink mint, Macaroon, Icing sugar
From bottom (left to right) Conoutr Kit - Highlighter, Pink parfait, Pink ice, Pinktini
You can expect a 'spotlight' focus on these bad boys next week and a post on my fave brow products (including my new Sleek brow pen) of to moment.  Also, coming up this week is my Easter themed products, being the week of all things bunnies and chocolate I thought it would be appropriate!

What are your favourite Sleek products?  Have you tried the blushes?

Lip Combos

15/04/2014
Look #5
Lips! Ah yes, one of my favourite makeup addictions.  I am 'slowly' (wink wink) building up my lipstick collection.  Lipstick is one of my favourite products to not only use but to research, so last week I decided to go through my lip products and come up with some combos that I hadn't done before.  

When it comes to lip products I prefer matte lips or at least nothing overly glossy.  I also prefer something that I can fake a top lip with, so something that will at least hide my natural lip line (my upper lip is really thin) with ease.  So here are some of fave lip combos I tried out.

#1  Dark and vampy....with a twist
YSL Rouge volupte - natural beige #1 and MAC - cyber
Odd combo? Yea I thought so too, but they really work.  I did a little ombre, YSL on the ottuer part of the lip and Cyber on the inner.  Its always fun to try something a little daring.

#2 Simple and plump
Chi chi lip liner - It Girl and MAC - Syrup
Of course I couldn't go a week without using MAC's syrup.  I am currently obsessed with this lipstick.  Its the perfect all rounder and because its a lustre it has a subtle sheen that helps the lip look more luscious.  I paired this with a lip liner to enhance my top lip and round out my bottom lip.  I do find this liner to be drying so I always use a good lip treatment beforehand.

#3  Fresh and girly
L'Oreal Gloss - 101 Classic and Peripera - No.10 Rose Pink
How cute is the packaging of this lip stick?  I have a few Peripera Lipsticks and find them to be pigmented, non drying and last a decent amount of time if your not eating.  I love this rose shade, topped with this gloss as it adds a fresh femininity to any look and looks amazing paired with a brown smokey eye.

#4  Ombre...again :)
Lime Crime - Countessa Fluorescent and Calvin Klien - Mesmerise  
Are you sensing a them here?  :)  I have never tried ombre lips before so I tried it out a few times this week.  One super dark ombre and one subtle and sweet version.  I love a good tea rose or rose pink lip and haven't used this Mesmerise shade very much.  I find it to be a nice creamy pink with red undertones (pulling more red hues).  I first applied Lime Crime's Countessa Fluorescent  and then added Mesmerise .  I really liked this combo, the darker lip in the middle helped to make my lips appear fuller, while the pink outter edges of the lip softened the overall tone.

#5 Quick and easy
Chichi - It Girl and Revlon Matte Balm on Elusive 205 and Showy 220
This look isn't all that exciting but still worthy of a mentopn.  I just simply lined my lips for fullness and then used either 205 or 220 depending on the look I was going for.  And yes I did try these shades in a slight ombre too, I used 220 over the lips and the focused 205 more so in the centre to create a cute puckered look.  I also used Lucas Paw Paw before use and after as these guys can be really drying when used together.

APPLICATION

 To achieve a crisp, smooth line I used the Sigma E05 and then filled in my lips with the XO Beauty lip brush, this is brush combo made in lipstick heaven.

What are your favourtie combos lately or lip prodcuts?

Too Faced - The Chocolate Bar

13/04/2014

The Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette is a makeup lovers dream.  As soon as you open the palette, the smell of sweet chocolate envelops you and the sights of the shadows immediately spark imagination and creativity!  I new I had to get my hands on this beaut and I was so excited when it finally made its way into my collection!!
Have been loving paring my fave colours of this palette with Razzle Dazzle Rose and Sweet heart blush
The eye shadows are pigmented with pure, antioxidant-rich cocoa powder, most of the shadows have a smooth texture (some of the shimmer shades have a slight chunky glitter) and blend beautifully.  The palette includes 16 matte and shimmer shades of natural browns, soft pinks and pops of plums and burgundy's. So whether you are into soft neutral looks, sultry smokey looks or something with a pop of colour your are covered.  In saying that the colours are completely neutral so don't expect chartreuse or blues.  This palette was designed superbly and suits all skin tones and abilities, so as you inhale the sweet chocolate sent just the let the colours absorb you and get creating.
Some of my faves are: Hazlenut, Creme Brulee, Haute Chocolate, Cherry Cordial, Champagne Truffle and my absolute favourite is Salted Caramel
The palette includes Too Faced' signature how-to Glamour Guide with three looks to get you started, all of which are easy to recreate and help you start to pair up the shadows with ease.  Another very smart aspect of the palette design is the fact that the highlight shades are the size of two regular pans.  One shade is matte and one is has a subtle pink undertone and shimmer, bother make perfect inner corner and brow highlights, as well as a quick and easy wash of colour over the lid for a simple day look.  If you haven't already, go and get your hands on this palette, it will be perfect for all seasons and provide so many fun options.


I LOVE this palette, there are endless looks and is a perfect palette for travelling.

What palette have you been loving lately?  Let me know in the comments below.

#Lifestyle Extras - "I'm Sick" Edition

12/04/2014


Achoo!  This week as mentioned in my previous post #Autumn Warmers has been a week of dry skin, sniffles and warm clothing.  Here in Christchurch it has been a pretty cold week so I have been loving curling up on the couch with a warm blanket, a good cup of tea and scrolling through my fave blogs and watching some great movies.  So here are just a few of my picks for when I'm sick.

A nice cup of Earl Grey:  this is an aromatic tea with a strong but not overpowering flavour, perfecto.
To stay hydrated I been chugging back tea and water.  Too liven up the water I packed it full of lemons and limes, a great way to get some extra vitamins and 'spice' up the blandness.

How cute is this bottle

I have also been loving porridge, yes that's right porridge.  Lol, when i'm sick I either don't want to eat or want something hearty and warming and porridge has been the answer this week.  I cover it in brown sugar and usually some bananas (that makes it healthy right lol).  Its quick, easy to make and uses hardly any dishes, perfect for a quick dinner or snack after a long day at work.


To combat the dryness in my skin, in particular my hands I have been loving my Delight - hand and body by Antiopodes.  I get really dry hands when I'm sick and in general they can be quite dry as i use a lot of hand sanitizer at work.  This product sinks in quickly and nourishes the skin.  It has helped keep my hand moisturised and smooth all week, I apply it in the morning and night! Love this product and bonus: the smell is... well.. delightful :P  I have also loved my Origins Drink Up Intensive Overngiht Mask, it has kept my skin supple and brightened and help to sooth my irritated skin around my nose.  It takes awhile to fully sink in but when it dones my skin feels instantly better, less tight and more calm.  Also for an honorable mention I loved my Glamglow Eye Treatmant, I wouldn't say this is a must have product but it has helped keep those dark under-eye circles, caused by sleepless nights at bay.


EXTRAS!!
Been loving this infinity scarf this week! The colour is instantly uplifting and is so warm and cozy, excuse the blemish it's a no makeup day today.  I have also loved chucking my hair into to quick plated pig tails for effortless waves for the next day/night

These beauts have added warmth and colour back into my face,  helping me look less dead lol.


Would you like a review on the Glam Glow Eye Treatment?

#Autumn Warmers - take 2

11/04/14

Brrrrr! is what comes to mind when I look back at this week.  This week has been a typical autumn New Zealand smorgasbord  of weather.  Hot and sunny one day, cool crisp mornings the next and three days of rain and grey.  It was also a week of sniffles, sneezes and coughs for me, so needless to say I was in need of a good waterproof mascara and some colours to warm up my complexion.

From far left:  Lime Crime - Centrifuchsia, Bourjois - Bronzing Primer, NARS - Sin, Bourjois Health Mix Serum Fondation - 52, Revlon Balm Stain - Smitten, Lioele Skin Pact - 21Light Beige, MAC - Pink freeze, MAC - Syrup, Revlon Lip Butter - Raspberry Pie 

I went with the Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation in 52, for a fresh dewy look and favoured the Lioele Skin Pact SPF 25+++ to set my foundation and give me a little extra sun protection.  I also used the Bourjois Bronzer Primer to warm up my overall complexion.  As you can see in the picture I was really drawn to the warmer purples and fuschias to help me look more lively and awake and less tired.


I also loved a more glossy look for the lips and used quite a selection lip products, all of which pulled on the warmer side and were of a pinky, fuschia tone, matching my blush and eye shadow choices.

Using my MAC quad in 'Pink Freeze" I was able to create a soft, girly eye look that played with my green eyes, while the Revlon Lip Butter in "Raspberry Pie" gave my lips a healthy flush, prefect for those days when you need a little colour back in your life.

How has your week been?  I'm so ready for the weekend.  What have been your picks/colours for the week?

Lancome's Hypnose Star Mascara

8/04/2014



Recently I picked up Lancome's Hypnose Star Mascara.  Naturally I have long lashes with a slight curl, so when I go shopping for mascara I look for one thing, length as I like to exaggerate the length of my lashes rather than create fullness.  I have to say that I was originally drawn to this mascara not because of its amazing claims and what it could do for my lashes but for the packaging (haha).  To be honest I hadn't heard much about this mascara until I went and talked to the sales assistant.  She told me it was perfect for adding volume to the lashes  I thought this would be a wonderful addition to my eye makeup collection.  I think this mascara adds great length and some separation, while still looking somewhat natural.

Lancome claims that this mascara will enhance the lashes with a liner effect, looking thick at the lashline, long and luscious through the tips.  I'm not so sure about the liner effect but I do find the rest of the claims pretty true.  Although, I'm not sure luscious is a good description of the lash effect as Lancome's Hypnose Star Mascara isn't meant to be geared at adding volume/fullness but length.  



A unique aspect of the mascara isn't necessary the formula but the brush.  It is a dual-sided brush that helps to extend the lash and create that nice long flick.  I love the tapered tip of the wand as it allows me to reach all my lashes to the very inner corner and the outer corner.  I do find that thicker brushes tend be a little clumsy and miss some of the outer lashes but this brush coats all the lashes evenly.  Also no clumping so far so that's a bonus.  After my initial application I do like to go in with another coat and for me its a perfect amount of product, providing pretty long lashes.  


I liken this mascara to the Jordana Best Lash Extreme Volumising Mascara, which makes my lashes beautiful, flirty and long.  Its definitely one of my top mascaras.  However, I found Lancome's Hypnose Star Mascara to be better in regards to wear and colour.  Hypnose Star seems to be a pretty long wearing mascara, lasting throughout my work day (8 hours), with little to no fall down or smudging in the lower lash line and is a true black, perfect for completing a nice day time look and taking a sultry look that up a notch.  If you haven't tried it already and it is in your budget (approx $56-58nz) give Hypnose Star a go, or if it is a little too pricey try out the Jordana.



What is your favourite mascara at the moment?  I am interested in trying out the YSL 'Babydoll' next.

New Balance 1600
I know what your probably thinking, walking shoes? Really Rachill? come on.  I mean sure a blog post dedicated to Jefferey Campbell's I can understand but sport shoes, blurgh lol.



That's exactly how I kinda felt when I drafted this blog post but the reality is goods shoes are also a part of taking care of my body and let me tell you I really needed a good pair.  My job is very physical, I spend 7+ hours on my feet racing around after children  days a week so needless to say it was so important to get a good, supportive pair of shoes.  My normal chucks weren't cutting it anymore and I needed something with a little (or lot) more support.  I did some research and decided on these.  I have only really worn them a couple of days and haven't really been super impressed...yet but I thinks that's due to being used to shoes with no support.


The New Balance 1600 is described as 'a versatile and lightweight netball shoe designed with a medial post to add stability.  The specialised tread and balance features aid players when landing from jumps and leaps in balanced, ready stances'.  I can tell they are correcting how I walk but yikes, it kinda hurts.  I'm gonna give these suckers a week or so to make a full decision on whether I like them or not.  Do you have a favourite exercise or walking shoe?



Also coming up next week, a review on Lancome's Hypnose Star Mascara, Too Faced Chocolate Bar Pallete review and lip combos of the week.

What have you been up to this weekend? I would love to know...

Lets get naked



I have been wanting to try Revlon Nearly Naked Mineral Foundation SPF 15 for quite some time but never went and purchased it, but I guess this week for whatever reason was the week to try it out.  Its pretty pricey here in NZ ($39.99) so I was really hoping it would live up to its hype.




I found this 'foundation' to be too sheer and light weight to really give any coverage as a foundation, so I pair it with a light, buildable base like the 'Bourjios Healthy Mix Serum Foundation (Shade 52)' or the 'Garnier BB Cream (for oily skin, shade light)'.  To achieve a 'nearly naked' look I like to prime my skin and then do my highlighting.  I use the 'M.A.C Prep+Prime' highlighter pen in 'Radiant Rose' to get that bright, fresh under eye look.  I then go in with my base of the day.  This is where the 'nearly naked' part comes in.  I'm in the shade medium.  I use this powder to build up coverage slightly and to set my makeup.  I use either the 'Real Techniques Powder Brush' or my 'Eco Tools Domed Bronzer' brush and stipple it on rather than dust it over.  I find this technique works best for me.  I then follow on with my blush and bronzer of the day and set it all with my 'Lioele Dewey Mist setting spray'.  This locks in my makeup and helps the powder foundation to settle rather than stick to any fine hairs.

I don't really enjoy the scent of the powder but it doesn't linger too long and didn't effect my skin

I find this mineral foundation to be finely milled, with a nice natural colour and finish .  It hasn't caked on me and seems to last quite well, in saying this I don't tend to wear a full face of makeup for more than 4 hours or so.  This powder is my first introduction to mineral powder foundation and so far suits my needs as I like a light, natural finish.





Have you tried this?  If so how do you wear it, with foundation or without? I would love to know!
