In the beauty community it seems like every day a new product is either being announced on social media, released to the public or flooding my YouTube subscription box with reviews! Over the past few weeks I’ve had my eye on a couple of products but have decided I’m not going to purchase them, and here’s why! If you enjoy this post or find it helpful, please give it a “like” so I know and let’s get into another anti-haul!
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!

Is it just me, or does every essential makeup product seem to run out at once? From almost finishing another bottle of foundation, to hitting pan on a setting powder, to being sick of never finding the right concealer shade, the ‘base’ section of my makeup bag was in dire need of a top up! Yesterday I popped to the shops to replenish my stash and pick up a few items I can’t go a day without. So, let’s get into the mini haul and don’t forget to give this post a “like” if you enjoy it!
While I consider myself pretty social media savvy, it took me a long time to get into Pinterest. Once I discovered there’s more to the site than just DIY’s for mums, I fell thick and fast, pinning posts to my various boards left, right and centre. I now love Pinterest and scroll through the never ending feed of inspiration every few days. There’s one downside to it though – it’s gotten me obsessed with so many things. From accessories and fashion to furniture and even specific colour schemes, Pinterest has now hooked me up with a bunch of new obsessions. So, let’s get into the pinnable goodness and hopefully you might find some new obsessions – or at least understand the enthusiasm and go “same, girl, same”.

Since I love seasonal makeup edits so much I decided to cut my usual ‘Autumn Makeup Picks’ in half for double the beauty! Since I previously posted ‘The Autumnal Eye Edit‘ featuring a bunch of my favourite eyeshadow palettes and shades, today I’m discussing my go-to lip products for Autumn! To me this seasonal is all about those rich, vampy tones, so my Autumnal lip picks feature a bunch of shades from metallic burgundies and burnt oranges to reds and deep cranberries.

For this week’s RuCreate The Look post I was inspired by not a runway look, but a makeup look from the main challenge! The queens were tasked with acting out an episode from 9021H0, and I became obsessed with Valentina’s Monna Dartin look. From the nude lip to the light blue eyeshadow to the overall styling, her look screamed 90’s perfection and I just had to feature it! Keep reading to see what products I’d use to rucreate something similar, and to also read my thoughts about this weeks episode!

April turned out to be one of my busiest months yet! In the last few weeks I discovered a bunch of new beauty favourites, celebrated a 21st, two weddings and Easter, hurled over too many university assignments, cried a bit too much over Harry Styles’ solo debut, visited my sister up north and hit a huge blogging milestone! *catches breath* Here are my April Favourites!
