One of my favourite drugstore brands, Rimmel, has been on FIYAH lately with their new releases! The past couple of months has seen the launch of a new lipstick line, lip liner shades, cream shadow sticks, a tinted primer and a contour kit! I've been lucky enough to have been sent some of the new goodies and have been testing them out quite a bit! Keep reading to hear my thoughts...
With it's launch (or re-launch, I suppose), H&M's beauty range sure made a splash in the beauty community. It was kinda sudden, especially because the range is SO huge! Their collection of products ranges from makeup to nails, body and hair - there's so much to choose from! I managed to get my hands on three things while I was in the US - I was restrained! I read somewhere that it's supposed to make its way to Aussie stores this year...but that news was a while ago and I haven't heard any updates since! I really hope it comes soon because I would be hella keen to try out some more from them...
I want to start this post of by both thanking and APOLOGISING to Holly! She created this tag and very graciously tagged li'l ol' me...like 5 moNTHS AGO. It's taken me waaaaay to long to do this! There are a bunch of tags I've been tagged in that I haven't yet done...one of which is the Procrastinating blogger tag - fitting much? Also thank you to Lauren who tagged me as well! Anyway let's get into it! My answers are probably going to be a bit rambly and haphazard so bear with me! I haven't done a tag in a HOT minute.
Becca - the brand that has been taking the world by storm! I've only tried their cheek products; their shimmering skin perfectors (powder and liquid) which I LOVE, and their shimmer souffle which I'm pretty lukewarm about. Another of their hit products is their Ombré Nudes Eye Palette* which i was lucky enough to try out! As much as I think Becca has some beautiful, quality products - I'm a bit annoyed that they're an Australian brand that really hard to get in Australia. In person, you can only find them at Sephora since they pulled from David Jones. Luckily though, there are a bunch of online retailers such as Activeskin that sell Becca - and often at a slightly discounted price!
It's been a hot minute since my last empties! I try to get one of these up every quarter, but sometimes I just forget or keep putting it off until I finish a certain product because I'm sooo close. Anyway, this is the loot that I've come up with this time around!
Shopping for clothes online is not something I partake in too often - I like to see and feel things and am always paranoid an item won't fit or suit me! I must say though, ASOS is a standby site for me. I ordered both my semi-formal and formal dresses from there! They have amazing good quality basics (and trendier items) at reasonable prices, plus they always have a tonne of stuff on sale! I should also mention, they have an amazing range of beauty brands too! Once I start scrolling, I ain't stoppin'... I decided to have a bit of a browse the other night and ended up with three things in my cart!
There's just one more day left of Priceline's 40% off cosmetics sale so get in quick before it ends tonight! I figured I would upload a haul of the loot I picked up yesterday in case you guys needed some last minute inspo heh. I went extra early (like 8am early haha) and managed to get almost everything I wanted! A few things were out of stock though, like the Physician's Formula Nude Shimmer Strips highlighter (why is the PF stand always SO PITIFUL???) and Maybelline Creamy Beige Colour Tattoo. So I was supposed to be on a spending ban but I don't think I went too crazy... Plus a lot of this stuff I didn't buy while I was in the US because I knew I could get it here in the sale! Justifiable enough excuse?
Ah, matte liquid lipsticks. The bandwagon that everyone and their mother is on. I actually had not tried any proper matte liquid lipsticks until late last year, with my first foray into them being the Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks. I picked up the set of minis that was part of their holiday collection of last year, however all of these shades are permanent (I believe!) so I hope this review and swatches is still helpful! I'd read very mixed reviews on these, it was pretty much love or hate so I was very curious to try them for myself...
