FOTD: Bold Lashes And Soft Lips

I really enjoyed my makeup last night for a 21st so I thought I would share as the photo lighting was just too good not too. I decided on lashes so big I could almost fly away and soft pink lips, here are the products I used to achieve this look;

  • Benefit Porefessional
  • Mac Skin Refined Zone
  • Mac Studio Fix Foundation
  • Mac Prolong wear Concealer
  • Elf Under eye Setting Powder
  • Nutrimetics Satin Finish Powder
  • Benefit Hoola Bronzer
  • Nars Blush in Orgasm
  • Becca Skin Perfecter in Moonstone
  • Hard Candy Lip Liner (which I took out with me and lost)
  • YSL Rouge Volupte Perle 108

  • Nars Eyeshadow Primer
  • Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Too Cool
  • Lorac Pro Palettes
  • Urban Decay Black Liner
  • Favourite $1 Liquid Eyeliner
  • Benefit They're Real Mascara
  • Anastasia Brow Pomade
  • Australis Clear Brow Gel
  • Glam By Manicare Madonna Lashes

As crazy as the lashes are I actually became obsessed with them and I plan on grabbing a few more packets! I hope you're having a nice day, thanks so much for stopping by.

October Empties

I am over the moon that we are well and truly Into to November already! October seemed to go by so fast but I still got through a decent chunk of products, here Is what I used up;

1. Garnier Pure Active 3-1 Scrub: This face mask exfoliated my skin nicely and had a refreshing scent. It slightly tingled on the skin which was pleasant.

2. Makeup Remover Pads: I have gone through so many of these pads from Kmart. So Inexpensive and I use them daily.

3. Olay Regenerist Cleanser: A simple gel cleanser that came with the Olay Regenerist Cleansing system. It worked nicely with the system but I wouldn't consider It that great without It.

4. Collagen Essence Cucumber Face Sheet: Love love loved this face sheet, It was so moisturising and made my skin look so dewy and youthful. I definitely want to pick some more up for the hotter months.

5. Nivea Q10 Anti Wrinkle Night Cream: I can't comment on the wrinkle side of things but this was a nice thick moisturiser to put on before bed, I am now testing out a more natural version.

5. Veet Sensitive Wax Strips: I was actually really impressed with these wax strips! They left close to no sticky residue on my legs, removed most hairs and were super easy to use myself.

6. Silk Oil Of Morocco Leave In Conditioning Treatment: This leave In spray treatment just wasn't moisturising enough for my dry hair, although I did really enjoy the convenience of being able to spray It In my hair whenever I pleased, and It had a nice scent.

7. Batiste Cherry Dry Shampoo. Favourite dry shampoo ever, I just wished It smelt more like cherry!

8. Schwarzkopf Essence Ultime Shampoo: Finally used this up, a stock standard shampoo. It had a pleasant scent which was quite strong.

9. Schwarzkopf Ultimate Keratin Hairspray: I really like this hairspray, It kept my hair In place but didn't weigh It down or make It feel weird to touch.

10. Clear Scalp Therapy Conditoner: Ehh Just eh

11. Burberry Body Perfume sample: I really liked this perfume! I have to many perfumes to justify buying a bottle though.

12. Johnson's Baby Conditioning Shampoo: I used this to deep clean my makeup brushes and It works really well. I plan on trying out the Dasio brush cleaner next as I have heard great reviews.

13. Too Faced Eye Pimer sample: This kept my eyeshadow creaseless all night so I was pretty Impressed. I have a second sachet I plan on testing out in the hotter weather.

14. Bare Minerals Bare Skin Foundation sample: A light weight medium coverage foundation that has a nice finish on the skin. I prefer more of a high coverage foundation but I can definitely see why this foundation is popular for so many.

That's everything I got through In October. I hope you are all having a fantastic November so far and thank you for stopping by!
