Holiday sets 2014: Nars ‘digital world lip pencil set’, Smashbox ‘on the rocks photo finish primer duo’ and Bare Minerals ‘touch up to glow set’

110

The best part of the year for makeup-buying is definitely Christmas when brands release their limited edition holiday gift sets. Yesterday, Mecca had their first drop of their holiday collections with sets from Nars, Smashbox, Bare Minerals, Glam Glow, Too Faced and their own in-house brand being released. Apparently they have another drop date (I’m unsure of the exact date) where other brands will be releasing sets too. I grabbed these three holiday sets bright and early as I know lots of the sets sell out on their first day and many are already sold out online. Here is a quick look at the products I bought.

Chokers + metallics = party party party

IMG_0459

On the weekend, I went to a cocktail birthday party. The outfit was all very last-minute after a few mini-crises resulted in some last minute changes; but I think it still turned out looking pretty funkeh fresh (if I do say so myself) due to some beautiful accessories and shiny shiny makeup.

The Essentials: Flares, Mules and Highlighter

043

Today I bring you a [possibly controversial] outfit choice consisting of patch-work flared denim, brown leather mules and very shiny makeup. I think, like many of my outfits, the star of this look is the denim and these jeans make me feel very 70s Farah Fawcett as soon as I put them on.

Currently Wearing: YSL ‘rouge volupte shine #19′

IMG_0393I know I really like a lipstick when I wear it for more than a week, every single day. I have so many lipsticks lined up on my dresser, that I like to change it up pretty regularly. Enter my new YSL ‘rouge volupte shine’ in #19- this lipstick delivers everything I could ever ask for in a sheer[ish] lip colour and I’ve been wearing it non-stop.

The Best Jeans in the World?!

014

If I had to name 10 inanimate things that I love, denim would be listed because I think it’s just so great. I feel like I could just keeping buying pair after pair of jeans and never truly feel complete; you can never have enough denim! Going along with the whole ‘top 10′ trend here, if I had to name my top 10 brands, Sass & Bide would easily make the cut so it should be pretty obvious that denim+Sass&Bide=the best pair of jeans ever created.

101Just over a month ago, I was lucky enough to be invited by my lovely friend Tahnee (see her awesome and beautifully-written blog here and her very profesh, journalistic twitter here) to a Napoleon Perdis event launching his new Slim Aarons Collection. Now that I’ve had a good amount of time to fully test out the products, I am ready to review!

JULY FAVOURITES: Dior, Lipstick Queen, Armani, Anastasia Beverly Hills, The Balm, Maybelline, Palmers & De Lorenzo

IMG_0347

This month is a tad different to normal, because it only has one skincare fave and lots of makeup. I feel like I want to change up my skincare a bit, so in Priceline’s 40% skincare sale I went a bit crazy- fingers crossed, the craziness pays off and some skincare will feature next month. Also planning a haul from the sale too! Anyways, here are my favourites from the month of July!

Dressing Like Royalty

097

I think one of my favourite things about going away for a holiday is dressing up at night to go out for dinner. Holidays (hopefully) = relaxation, so unlike getting ready for a night out after a full day of uni or a busy weekend, I get to fully enjoy the process of getting ready without the rush and unavoidable tiredness that comes with non-holiday life. I recently went away to the coast for a few nights and was able to embrace the leisurely prep time. Continue reading
