The Desert at Dusk

It seems that eyeshadow palettes are my vice... I have more than enough warm eyeshadows to last a lifetime but apparently I needed one more (oh and I've since purchased two more (warm!) eyeshadow palettes...damn you Colourpop!). Although I was adamant that I wasn't going to buy the Huda Beauty Desert Dusk Palette...it somehow made its way into my basket. It's eye-wateringly expensive at $95 (luckily I got it for 20% off) but there's something about this combination of colours that inspired me and was definitely unique to me and my collection. By no means does that justify the purchase, but I have to say I'm really happy I bit the bullet!


The Ordinary's Extraordinary Primer & Foundation

Today I'm coming at you with a good ol' foundation review, and throwing my thoughts on a primer in for good measure too! I'm reviewing The Ordinary Coverage Foundation and High-Adherence Silicone Primer. The Ordinary's foundations (Coverage and Serum) were subject to a lot of hype not too long ago. Do you remember that long-ass waitlist? I think that in and of itself created a lot of hype, but was probably due to the fact that they couldn't keep up with the demand! Both of their foundation offerings have been touted as incredible bases for such a low cost! Since the initial rave reviews, I've been seeing some mixed and negative ones - particularly of the Coverage Foundation so here I am to give you guys my own take!


Like Music to My Ears #10

New music time! It seems I have settled into a bit of a pattern with my music and tv show favourites - every three months I manage to amass a bundle of current faves to share with you guys. Seeing as I posted about my recent TV show binges last week, it seems only natural that my music faves follow soon after! I happen to have a really eclectic mix of genres and artists this time around - if I do say so myself! 


Empties #15

Time to empty the trashbag into a dishevelled-chic flatlay! Probably the last empties of the year and I'm proud that I've gone through so many products. Enough with the preamble, because I know this post is going to be rambly as ffff!


Magnify with Rimmel's Magnif'eyes

Rimmel recently released their Magnif'eyes Eye Contouring Palettes* which are larger, revamped versions of their previous 6 pan eyeshadow palettes. They've come out with four 'editions'; Nude, Blush, Smoke and Colour, and I was very generously sent them all to review! While it is amazing to see drugstore brands come out with larger eyeshadow palettes, I do think Rimmel slightly missed the mark with these. They aren't bad palettes by any means, but there are certain aspects of them that could definitely be improved! Keep reading for my full thoughts and swatches...


What I've Been Watching #10

I can't quite believe I've managed to amass TEN of these TV show favourites posts on this blog...or can I believe it? I mean I do watch a HECK of a lot of TV. Anyway, now that I'm on holidays, I can binge ALL of the TV! I watched quite a few seasons of TV since my last TV post - including the latest seasons of Narcos and Bojack Horseman. I've talked about both of those shows before so they didn't make the cut in this post, but they were both incredible! I really enjoyed Narcos Season 3 - it was amazing even without Pablo, and if anything I found it a bit more exciting and action packed. Bojack was as emotional as ever and there was even more character development. For an animated comedy, this show goes deep. I'm also so excited for the shows coming out in the next couple of months - come at me The Punisher and The Crown!


Monthly Favourites // October 2017

I'm a wee bit late with my October favourites, but they're comin' at ya hot! I have just a small selection of favourites to share with you guys for the month - mostly new products though that I picked up in my recent collective haul! Like I said in that post - I'm free now! Yay! I've officially finished my assessment for this semester so four months of holidays - here I come! Hopefully that will also mean more (+ more regular) content and blog posts for you guys - but don't hold me to it... ;)
