ColourPop Pressed Powder Shadows Review

ColourPop Pressed Powder Shadows Review

As part of my Annual Treat Yo’ Self Haul I splurged and bought myself a few ColourPop Cosmetics products! When the magic words “Free International Shipping!” in the subject line of yet another ColourPop email caught my attention, I went in hard and hauled a bunch of their new pressed powder shadows! I’m finally reviewing the eight shades I bought, so give this post a “like” if you enjoy it or find it helpful and let’s get on with the review!

The Annual Treat Yo’ Self Haul

The Annual Treat Yo’ Self Haul

As the university semester came to a close a few weeks ago I took any and every oppourtunity to splurge, each purchase falling under the annual treat yo’ self haul umbrella. It wasn’t hard to channel my inner Tom Haverford. Just handed in a big assignment? Treat yo’ self. Just finished a unit? Treat yo’ self. No idea how you just went in that exam? Treat yo’ self anyway! Last year I didn’t buy any makeup during the university semester and instead waited until the end as a huge reward, and I’ve now done it again this year! This last semester was the most difficult so far so I found it easy to ignore makeup as I was up to my eyeballs in interviews, articles and assignments. However, when I had only one exam left to study for, three little words in a ColourPop email (“free international shipping!“) sparked my interest, and it was a swift fall down the rabbit hole into the world of online shopping from there. All my purchases have finally arrived, so let’s jump into this haul and if you enjoy it please give it a “like” so I know!

RuCreate The Look | Finale

RuCreate The Look | Finale

I’m back with the final instalment in my RuCreate The Look series! The lip sync battle was fought and our new current reigning winner was crowned – condragulations Sasha Velour! – and so the ninth season has come to an end. I started my RuCreate The Look series as a way of combining my intense obsession with RuPaul’s Drag Race with my love for makeup, flatlaying and blogging. As the season and my series developed, we took a slight detour from the makeup segment of the show and I started critiquing the different fashion looks delivered in each episode. Today I want to finish off the series by celebrating some of my favourite looks from the finale episode! So if you enjoy this post please give it a “like” so I know and let’s jump into it one last time!

Beauty + Life Goals: Update

Beauty + Life Goals: Update

As we approach the middle of the year and wonder where the heck the time is going, now seems like the perfect time to check in on the goals I set myself for 2017 to see how they’re progressing. I’m always goal setting, whether it be big tasks like wanting to finish my university degree, or just daily To Do lists where I want to accomplish some chores. No matter what you want to achieve though, I think to make your goals effective you have to refer back to them semi-regularly so you don’t loose track of what you want! I can happily say I have already ticked off some of the tasks I set myself back in January, and it’s been really rewarding to see those goals completed and motivates me to continue working on the remaining ones! Check out my goals and why I set them for myself here, and keep reading to see which ones I’ve completed! Also don’t forget to give this post a “like” if you enjoy it!

RuCreate The Look | Reunion

The reunion episode for the ninth season of RuPaul’s Drag Race aired yesterday, delivering the drama, receipts and steaming hot tea we had been waiting for all season! Every single queen looked amazing, but to avoid this fashion review turning into a marathon by judging all 14 queens, I just picked my Top 5 of the episode!

Too Faced Love Light Prismatic Highlighter Review

Too Faced Love Light Prismatic Highlighter Review

When I say I’ve waited months on end for the new Too Faced highlighters to drop, I am not overreacting. In the middle of last year I saw a photo of their new Love Light Prismatic highlighters floating around on the internet and became obsessed with them immediately. There was a rumour going around they were going to be the Too Faced x NikkiTutorials collaboration, but that collection came and went without any mention of these highlighters. Fast forward to now, and these highlighters have finally hit the shelves as part of Too Faced’s new Natural Love range! After hearing mixed reviews about them, I popped into Mecca Maxima to suss out the situation myself. I liked what I saw, and when I realised there was only one left of the shade I wanted, Ray of Light, I took it as a sign to splurge and ended up walking out with it! Keep reading to find out my thoughts on one of Too Faced’s three new Love Light Prismatic highlighters, and if you enjoy this post please give it a “like” so I know!
