AOC In The Nude Nail Polish

Have you heard of the brand Academy of Colour? I haven’t so when I saw this nail polish quartet set in Kmart, it went straight to my basket. I saw this before Christmas and thought it would have been a great stocking filler or secret santa present.

This AOC In the Nude nail polish set comes with four shades of nail polishes.  If you want to see some swatches and my initial review, continue below.

Beauty Empties

It’s been a while since I did an empties post and while I was cleaning my room, I found the paper bag I was storing all my used-up beauty products. It’s the new year and it’s time I throw these away.

I have a mixture of skincare, body care and haircare products so if you want to know if I recommend repurchasing any of these, 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.

Makeup Sale Haul

I’m back with a beauty haul which I got a while ago from one of the Big Bucket deals. I always like checking the sale out when they’re in town because I never know what I’d find.

I know I don’t need any more makeup but I love trying new things and getting them on sale makes me feel a little big better about my purchase.

Nails: Essie e-nuf is e-nuf

I’ve only recently gotten into Essie nail polishes. I’ve known the brand for a long time but I never purchased one because of the price. They’re not the cheapest out there and I tend to gravitate towards inexpensive polishes because I never finish them and they dry out anyway.

However, I couldn’t resist picking up this Essie nail polish in e-nuf is e-nuf. This nail polish is so bright which is perfect for the upcoming summer months.

Melbourne Beauty Haul

This post is long overdue but as they say, it’s better late than never! It has been a few months since my Melbourne trip and I’m only posting this now. I apologise for the delay but as you may know, I did a bit of shopping while I was over there.

I didn’t think I went too crazy but I got a fair bit of makeup, mostly drugstore though. Priceline was my favourite shop ever and I wish we have it here in NZ.

If you want to see all the beauty products I got during my trip, click below.

Love Pink

I have always been a girly girl and pink has been my favourite colour for as long as I can remember. I don’t have a lot of pink clothing but I have an abundance of the colour in other forms. I’ve always been attracted to it and it’s a happy colour for me.

I thought I’d share with you my current favourite pink items in conjunction with Breast Cancer Awareness. If you didn’t know, October is Breast Cancer Month so there are a lot of fundraising and pink-themed events going on to help raise awareness and money to breast cancer through the NZ Breast Cancer Foundation.
