Bourjois Paris

Last month, I went to a beauty event by Bourjois Paris. It was on a Monday afternoon and it made my day because it was a beautiful way to rediscover the brand. We were introduced to their upcoming products and rediscovered their classics.

We also got to take home a goodie bag with the four products pictured above. I haven’t tried any of them before so I was really excited.

Essence Cosmetics

I’ve found Essence Cosmetics to be one of the most affordable makeup brands available in stores here in NZ. I’ve loved the brand ever since discovering it in Farmers stores. I managed to pick up a few things from the brand last time I was there.

I think the products I picked up are fairly new to the range so if you want to know more, click below.

Be Indulged Beauty Advent Calendar

Advent calendars have been pretty popular for the past few years. A lot more brands have released their own versions. However, being in New Zealand, not a lot are available here. I thought I wouldn’t get one this year but I saw this Be Indulged Beauty Advent Calendar in Kmart and I got curious.

At only $15, this is probably the cheapest beauty advent calendar out there. I didn’t expect the best quality but the packaging looked cute.

Smokey Eye + Pink Lips Makeup Look

I took these makeup look photos a few months ago and I’ve been mulling over sharing it on the blog. I’m not a makeup expert and I’m usually on the safe/neutral side but on this day I decided to experiment and play around with makeup.

I ended up with my version of a smokey eye which I’ve never really done before. I paired it with bright pink lips using one of my favourite lipsticks. I still have so much more to learn about makeup application especially blending but this was good practice.

If you want to see what products I used, see my post below.
