For the love of gold – Burberry Gold Collection for Holiday 2014

Hi Sweets, 

Burberry Beauty has always been a brand that I have been interested in but something that was almost unattainable, unless I wanted to use a forwarding company or pay taxes etc.  But that has all changed since the wonderful website Net-A-Porter opened their shipping services to NZ!  So let’s do a good ol’ haul.

Have I got you blushing? - Milani Powder Blush

Hi Sweets, 
Today, I am going to do a quick review of Milani’s Rose Powder Blush.  Ok, let’s just get the obvious comment out the way…these blushes are A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E !  A beautiful pressed blush in the shape of a bloomed rose, encased in a rather sturdy plastic casing.

Dior Golden Shock Collection

Hi Sweets,
This year the Christmas collections have been out in full force, and super early too!  Usually I don't get overly excited by Christmas/Holiday collections but for some reason I have been drawn to them this year.  I think its because although the packaging for many collections are quiet lux and attractive, and lets face it good packaging can been very alluring, this time round the colours are actually wearable year round and are something that suit a lot of people.  This year I went a little Dior crazy and got 4 things from their Holiday offerings.

A little Mac never hurt anyone

Hi Sweets,
Sooo.... lets go back a few months ago when I said I was on a spending ban.  I might have well just handed my money straight over to every makeup counter, or online store!!  Needless to say I didn't do as well as I thought I would, so to drown my sorrows and make myself feel better about not spending money, naturally I went and spent some more....  Beauty addict logic, isn't so logical.

Do you even brunch? #1

Hi Sweets,
When Aotearoa has a beautiful day nothing can beat it.  There is nothing better than exploring what NZ has to offer, with its beautiful landscapes, lakes, oceans and all round beauty.

Revlon ColourStay Moisture Stain - Parisian Passion

Hi Sweets, 
Who doesn’t love a new lip launch??  Well we all know I do and when the Revlon Colourstay Moisture Stains started appearing in reviews I was instantly interested.  My initial thoughts (before seeing them in store and being able to swatch etc) were the packaging looked really attractive and the shade selection was excellent.  The only thing I wasn’t too sure on was whether the Moisture Stains would be too gloss-like for me.

When nude becomes neutral!

Hi Sweets, 
Let’s face it… we all have those days or special occasions when we don’t really give a *insert choice of naughtyness* and even though we want/feel the need to look presentable, we just don’t feel like putting in the regular effort.  For me that means I look to products that don’t take a lot of work or need hours of blending and aint nobody got time for the drama of winged liner (well not this girl anyway, haha).  I look for multi functioning products, particularly in the cheek department.

Halloween - Hourglass Femme Rogue Velvet Crème Lipstick = Nocturnal

Happy Halloween, Sweets...
When it comes to lipsticks recently I have been going for variations of the same shade.  Reading descriptions, looking up swatches etc and when I look in my cart I noticed they all look the same.  Usually I find it really easy to go online and find something I like, as this is something that I have learnt the art of doing, as so much of my makeup has been purchased online (many brands aren’t sold in NZ or are overpriced).  On the odd occasion when I actually go in store I really enjoy swatching everything!! On this occasion and after an arm full of swatching and not feeling particularly inspired, I looked over to the Hourglass section and it was like a breath of fresh air, a ray of sunshine at the end of horror movie or a stake randomly appearing just before a vamp comes to chomp you on the neck (maybe I’m being a little dramatic here haha).  I spotted a beautiful range of colours that were unique in comparison to the current offerings from brands at the moment and I found the ‘one’.
