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.

September Beauty Box

It has been a few months since the last Beauty Review Beauty Box but the September box finally came out. I received it last week and I’ve been excited to share it to you.

If you haven’t heard, Beauty Review is this awesome NZ website where you can post reviews of makeup, skincare and haircare products. You can engage with others in the forum, read articles and you can also get your hands on their beauty box. I bought the last one back in March and it was such great value that I couldn’t resist picking one up again.

To see the full haul of what’s inside September’s Beauty Box, continue below.

September Favourites

The last time I did a monthly favourites post was in June. I skipped July and August because I was still using the same products and there weren’t enough new things to feature as my favourites. Since going to Melbourne, I’ve gotten a few things and I’ve had enough time trying them so I have new favourite beauty products to show you.

If you want to know more of what I’ve been loving so far, click below.

Beauty Duplicates

Have you ever loved a product so much that you need to a have back up of it? I sure do. As my blog name suggests, I am quite a collector of things. After doing some cleaning and organising, I gathered all the products I have duplicates of.

This post was also inspired by the awesome Cass from cassandramyee. If you haven’t seen her blog, please check it out because she has amazing beauty posts! She posted about her beauty back-ups a while back and I enjoyed reading what she had.

Makeup Sale Haul

If there’s a makeup sale happening close to me, I cannot resist going to it. Even if I don’t need any more makeup, I always like to check it out to see if there are any new products. There are two makeup sales around NZ that I know of but the one I go to the most and where this haul is from is the Big Bucket Deals.

They come to Auckland every few months and there’s usually one in the North Shore. I can’t help myself when they had their last sale and I managed to get a few things I’ve been eyeing up for quite a while.

See my full haul below.

Bourjois Paris cosmetics

Bourjois Paris has become my favourite makeup brand for foundation and powder. I’ve seen reviews on Youtube and people rave about the healthy balance matte powder. I decided to try it and it is currently my favourite powder.

My sister then ordered both the healthy mix serum and healthy mix foundation on Asos and she highly recommended both. Though I have multiple foundations, I bought both just to check what the hype is about. Same as the healthy balance powder, the serum and foundation are great!

See below for my review and swatches.
