I may – just may – have done a little cheeky shop at Lush last week. To be fair I was there for something I really need (and it was out of stock again – c’mon Lush, my hair needs you!), and it’s not like I could just leave without a few other things falling into my basket…

#EOTD: Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof 35 Gris eye of the day
Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof 35 Gris eye of the day

Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof 35 Gris eye of the day

A moment of reverence, please: this the first piece of Chanel makeup I’ve purchased. It wasn’t an intentional purchase, mind you – I bought a couple of Chanel eyeliners on behalf of my sainted mother, and elected to keep the liner she didn’t want. Thanks mum!

Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof in 35 Gris is a charming slightly purpled grey with a…

Face of Australia Screen Siren nude nail polish swatch & review

NUDE SCENE: @foacosmetics Screen Siren nude nail polish swatch & review #bbloggers

Face of Australia Screen Sirens nail polish collection

I’m not a huge nude nail polish wearer. Not because I don’t like neutrals – I absolutely love them – but rather it’s because neutrals don’t like me. I have fair, cool-toned skin, and it’s a chore and a half to find nude nail polishes that aren’t ultra warm/super dark/unflattering. That doesn’t stop me from constantly trying to find the one,…

MAC Eye Shadow X 15 Warm Neutral palette

Hola friends! I want to share some quick swatches of the (relatively) new MAC Eye Shadow X 15 Warm Neutral palette, a pre-filled 15 slot eyeshadow palette that’s available from the MAC Pro stores in Sydney and Melbourne. I’m in the process of consolidating my working makeup kit down to the bare bones, and one of the things I’ve been streamlining is my…

The Beauty Encyclopedia: How To Deal With An Adult Acne Outbreak (in five steps or less!)

Some musings on #MKR, rebellious pimples, and how to deal with an adult acne outbreak: #bbloggers

I’ve been watching a little – ok, a lot – of My Kitchen Rules lately. I know, I know. It’s awful trash television and I am 100% hooked on it. I am a woman of simple tastes and MKr has literally everything I want in a television show: strident cashed up bogans, kitchen disasters, ghastly interior decorating, and people mispronouncing ‘confit’.

My favourite team in the competition is, without…

Kester Black Forest & Lilac nail polish swatch & review

Kester Black A/W14 Forest & Lilac nail polish swatch & review

Kester Black A/W14 Forest & Lilac

Kester Black A/W14 Forest & Lilac

Happy Friday! I posted a Kester Black nail polish back in January and, if you recall, I was rather enamoured with the buttery smooth formula and especiallytaken by the clean, focused, on-point colours across the entire Kester Black collection. No gaudy glitterbombs or everything-and-the-kitchen-sink mixing here, just a focused and carefully edited selection of…
