Project Pan is Finally Complete!

Yep, you read that correctly – I’m finally finished with my Project 30 Pan! It actually didn’t take me anywhere near as long as I thought and I think that is due to the fact that I didn’t select specific products, just things I needed to use up and once I started I realised I had a lot of half empty products lying around. I did slip up just a few times so I will be doing this again (maybe starting from the first of July?) but it really did make me stop and think  ...

MAC Look #2

Following on from my last post, this is the look my sister went for for her 21st. She wanted a lighter eye than I went for and a matte pink lip. At first the lipstick the makeup artist applied was a bit too pink so she ended up swapping it for something more neutral (MAC Lipsick in Creme Cup). The finished look. A close up of her eye look. She too had a half false lash but skipped the winged eyeliner that I had and opted for slightly lighter shades, I really liked the Creme Cup  ...

MAC Look #1

My little sister had her 21st birthday a few weeks ago and it was a great excuse for both of us to go and get our makeup done! We have talked about going to the MAC counter and getting our makeup professionally done for years now but have never quite seemed to get around to it so this worked out perfectly. I paid for my sisters as part of her present (cost was $95 but was redeemable off products after our makeover) and overall I was quite pleased with how it turned out. The only downside  ...

Nail of the Day – NYC Colour in Gerbera

My local service station has started to display a lovely selection of these bargain polishes right by the counter and every time I’m in there I always seem to be picking one up. They retail for $2.00 and for such a small price they really are good quality. Some colours seem to be thinner than others and require more than one coat but one coat was all I needed to get this vibrant pinky-red. I would recommend using a clear top coat over these as they do tend to chip without one but they  ...

May Bellabox

I arrived home last night to find this month’s Bellabox waiting for me. Bellabox is very much a “sample” box with very few full sized products compared to some of the other boxes however they have been very consistent and they have a good mix of samples for skin, hair, cosmetics and nails. I think I have become a bit used to getting full sized products from other boxes but I really am still quite happy with Bellabox. Here’s what arrived yesterday: Avene Ystheal+  ...

May Lust Have It

So I actually had this delivered last week but because I wasn’t home it was taken to my local post office and I had so many dramas getting it! Finally picked it up this morning and I was so impressed by all the goodies they included. I Love This Box was my standout favourite of the beauty subscription services but they announced a few days ago that they will be closing! So sad, I expect it may have something to do with rising postage costs and postage issues just not making it worth  ...

Glosscars Prize Pack

It’s here!!!!! I was so excited when I arrived home Friday night to find my Glosscars prize pack from Beauty Heaven had arrived! I was expecting to have to arrange to get to the Post Office to pick it up when it was delivered which is tricky as my local post office has the worst opening hours ever but they left it on our front doorstep! This isn’t exactly the safest thing to do but I don’t care as it truned out fine and it meant I got to open it and have a little play over  ...

NOTD – OPI Pink Friday from the Nicki Minaj Collection

I adore Nicki Minaj’s quirky style and individuality so when I saw shw was bringing out some nail polishes with OPI I had to check them out. I picked up Pink Friday and have a few more on my wishlist but I was really impressed by this creamy pink. Two coats gave me a solid opaque finish and it’s just the right shade of mid pink – I don’t tend to like wearing too much pastel pink on my nails. this will definately be on high rotation for me now! Have you tried any  ...
