Colours of winter 2k14: a deep aubergine purple, as black as my soul and as shiny as a cursed mirror.

Illamasqua Stranger Intense Lip Gloss swatch & review

Stop into the cyborg future with @Illamasqua Stranger Intense Lip Gloss swatch & review #bbloggers

Illamasqua Stranger Intense Lip Gloss

Illamasqua Stranger Intense Lip Gloss

File under: cyberpunk school run, summer goth supermarket looks, deus ex augment chic, cyborg aesthetics.

I’m only being mildly facetious, of course. Life would be a hell of a lot more fun if all those Bladerunner-esque future aesthetic predictions ever came true and platinum gold lipstick became de rigueur, but until that JC Denton-infused zeitgeist happens,…

#EOTD – Dirty Taupe Eye Makeup

I’ve decided that this is my aesthetic jam for winter 2K14: taupe and brown, a nod to the nineties in itself, but given an urban warlock twist with an oil-on-the-sidewalk sheen. There’s nothing I like more than an eye that’s an artful nod to slept-in makeup, just without actually having to be a little grot who sleeps in a full face of warpaint (don’t do this, for…

Face of Australia Dark Side collection manicure

Step over to the Dark Side with my @foacosmetics Dark Side manicure #bbloggers #notd

Thank frickle it’s Friday! It’s been one of those weeks – it’s been one of those months – and I’m so behind the ball, I feel like I’m never going to catch up. Yikes! It’s 2014; surely someone out there has perfected a cloning machine so I can duplicate myself and get twice as much work done. Or maybe a Time-Turner, I’m not fussy. Scientists/wizards, hit me up.

But! Enough moaning. It’s time for…

Soap & Glory Breakfast Scrub review

Soap & Glory The Breakfast Scrub review

Soap & Glory Breakfast Scrub

Soap & Glory Breakfast Scrub

Oh my stars and garters. I’m normally fairly ambivalent about how my rinse-off face and body products – as long as it doesn’t smell like chemical death I don’t really care one way or another what bouquet it sports – but I’m making a big fuss over Soap & Glory Breakfast Scrub: this body scrub smells delicious.

Is it redundant to say that it smells like breakfast?…

Picture Polish Badass nail polish

Picture Polish Badass nail polish

Happy Friday! I’ve been on a winning streak with Picture Polish nail lacquers this year (see my swatches of Beige, Fairy Floss & Honey Dew!), so I had high hopes for this Sassy Shelly x Picture Polish nail blogger collaboration polish. Picture Polish Badass nail polishis a grey and black holo – Picture Polish describes it as a bijou holo, which I freely admit…

My Five Favourite Pinterest Accounts

I’ve been a bit out of sorts for a while now, with not much to do beyond cocooning myself under the blankets all day, mindlessly refreshing Tumblr and throwing myself back into the interactive scrapbook that is Pinterest. I’ve started semi-seriously investing some time into Pinterest, collecting all sorts of interesting makeup and fashion ephemera and pinning them into a semi-useful resource for…

I’m not going to go into much detail about the OPI & Coca-Cola Icons Of Style nail polish collaboration short of saying that there are times when the fruits of late game capitalism capital-w Weird Me Out, and this is definitely one of those times. Corporate merchandising can be a real trip sometimes, you know?

Enough about that though. Let’s see some…
