Chanel Bel-Argus nail polish

I normally only try and feature upcoming or available products here on swatchgirl.com, but I’ll make an exception just this once: I’ve had Chanel Bel-Argus nail polish sitting on my desk for a year now, I’ve tried it multiple times, I’ve done everything to make it work… and I can’t. I just can’t. It’s absolutely terrible.

I like the rich oceanic blue of Bel-Argus in a…

A Few Ideas For The End Of A Long Weekend

weekend

I love a good long weekend, especially the Easter weekend – the luxury of a Friday off, a weekend spent lunching and brunching and gorging on chocolate, and then the novelty of a Monday without any work. Four days off is wonderful, don’t get me wrong, but there’s a point around two or so in the afternoon when I enter what Douglas Adams called ‘the long dark tea time of the soul.’

There will be…

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…

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 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…
