W7 Liptember lipstick in Neon Purple is a deep vibrant purple. This on trend shade is very similar to Pantone's 2018 colour of the year Ultra Violet. Take a walk on the wild side with this W7 Lipstick.

Day 25



OXX Cosmetics Matte Liquid Lipstick + Lipliner  Pink

This Matte Liquid Lipstick and Lipliner set from OXX Cosmetics is only $5. This shade is a dusky peachy pink which looks very brown on my lips. The lipliner is a soft pretty pink! This is no Kylie lipkit, but for a cheap drug store brand it's good. My only wish for this product is a shade name! No where on the box or product could I find the shade name - and I looked! I did find this product on the Kmart website, so I think this shade is simply called Pink.

OXX Cosmetics is available at Kmart Australia  www.kmart.com.au 



Day 26 


DB Cosmetics Longwear Lipstick Sugar Blossom 


DB longwear lipstick is a traditional bullet style lipstick with a long wearing matte formula. Sugar Blossom is a pretty dusty pink shade which I love, however I don't love this lipstick's matte finish. When I wear this shade, I always add a lipgloss over the top. Today's gloss is Purfectly Chic by Kate Heussler Lip Gloss in Swiss Alps. It's a clear gloss with lots of shimmer and high shine!



Day 27 



Napoleon Perdis DéVine Goddess Lipstick Aphrodite

NP DéVine Goddess Lipstick in Aphrodite is a classic red. Napoleon's richly pigmented signature lipstick is sophisticated glamour at its best. "When in doubt wear red." This timeless shade is classy and chic.  



Day 28



Perfectly Chic Lip Gloss Miami Nights 

This super glossy lip is thanks to Perfectly Chic Lip Gloss by Kate Heussler in Miami Nights. This pretty peach lip gloss shade is super shimmery and glossy. It's one of my favourite lips glosses because you can wear it alone and it always looks gorgeous.




Day 29 



ulta3 Moisturising Lipstick green magic

Ulta3 moisturising lipstick in the shade green magic looks green but transforms into a pretty pink on the lips! This magical lipstick reacts to the PH level in your skin, so everyone gets a pretty shade unique to them! For me this lipstick is a very vibrant pink and it's super long lasting on the lips! I bought this lipstick for fun, but I was actually surprised how good it was! And it's only $4.25!

This shade Cherish is a gorgeous shimmery cherry colour with super high shine and wearing it always brightens my day!

Day 15 



Rimmel The Only 1 Lipstick Pink Me Love Me 


Rimmel The Only 1 Lipstick is a very smooth, soft formula and slides over the lips for comfortable lightweight feeling all day.

The Only 1 lipstick has a floral scent upon application.



Day 16 





Napoleon Perdis DeVine Goddess Lipstick Hess


Napoleon Perdis DéVine Goddess Lipstick in Hess is the ideal nude lipstick to pair with a dramatic smokey eye. This lipstick is creamy, luxurious and perfect for creating timeless beauty looks.

Day 17 





Lancôme Matte Shaker Kiss Me Cherie 

Lancôme Matte Shaker is a bold highly pigmented matte liquid lipstick that glides onto the lips with ease and dries matte. I usually avoid matte lipstick, but honestly this is the most comfortable, most perfect matte liquid lipstick. The precise lip cushion applicator makes application easy and the lipstick is so comfortable, light weight and long lasting - it truly feels weightless on the lips! Kiss Me Cherie is a deep red, think Marilyn Monroe. My absolute favourite matte lipstick!

Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick Asia 077 

Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in Asia (077) is one of my favourite deep nude shades. This is not your average brown lipstick, it has a very pretty mauve undertone and it's perfect for your everyday makeup. I love this shade because I can make it darker with lipliner and lighten it with lipgloss! 

Day 20 



M.A.C Lipstick Frost Lipstick Angel

On Wednesdays we wear PINK! My lipstick today is MAC Frost Lipstick in Angel. This is a soft baby pink shade with a frost finish. MAC Lipstick is very creamy, so it's perfect for winter! If you love millennial pink, this shade is perfect for you.

HUDA BEAUTY: Smokey Obsessions Palette


HUDA BEAUTY 
Smokey Obsessions


Every woman loves a smokey eye, right? 
Having the right eyeshadows to create the perfect smokey eye is essential. Luckily Huda Beauty have created the Smokey Obsessions palette, to help you master the smokey eye. 

This palette combines 4 mattes with 5 metallic shimmers and includes an intense black, 4 shades of brown and shimmery shades of champagne, gold and silver. 




Since purchasing this palette last month from a Sephora store, I have enjoyed using it everyday! What I love about this eyeshadow palette is it's versatility. I can create neutral shimmer eyes, golden smokey eye look, black and silver smokey eyes, a natural brown everyday look. It's also a great eyeshadow palette to create a soft daytime look in the morning and then build it up to a smokey look for night. 

Gold smokey eye - Huda Beauty Smokey Obsessions Palette

I purchased my Smokey Obsessions palette from Sephora for $48. When it comes to getting your hands on Huda Beauty in Australia, it's much easier to purchase her eyeshadow palettes in store at your local Sephora, than order on her website and pay for shipping to Australia. 

I love the size of this palette. It's mini compared to Huda's rose gold or desert dusk palette but the eyeshadows are the same size, so it's great value and perfect for your purse or beauty bag. 



Application Tip: 
The metallic shimmery shades in this palette are very creamy and extremely metallic. The formula of these shadows is very different to any other eyeshadow I have tried before. These shimmery shades are incredible and best applied with your finger tips. Application with an eyeshadow brush is not as affective, and not something I recommend. The colour payoff is much better when applied with your finger. 

I usually apply the matte shades first with an eyeshadow brush and then dap the metallic shades on top with my fingers. 




In this review I discuss the eyeshadow shades including swatches, discuss the price and packaging and give my overall thoughts of this palette.

Day 1




Covergirl Colourlicious Lipstick Spellbound 325 

This medium pink has a vibrant fuchsia hue with a long lasting formula that feels weightless on the lips. Very comfortable on the lips all day and this shade Spellbound is pigmented which means less reapplying throughout the day.



Day 2



Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick Pink Blush 


This milkshake pink has a pastel hue and a rich, creamy texture. Rimmel's Lasting Finish Lipsticks are affordable, long wearing and one of my favourite drug store lipsticks. This is my favourite light pink shade from the #Rimmel range.




Day 3


Colourpop Ultra Glossy Lip Ponyland 


Ponyland is a metallic lavender lip colour which is pigmented like a lipstick with a glossy finish like a lip gloss. Very comfortable on the lips, this wearable shimmery purple shade is magical and fun to wear.



Day 4


Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick Kate Moss 45

This pretty nude shade is part of the Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Moss Lipstick collection. 45 is my favourite shade from Kate's nude lipstick collection. The perfect shade to pair with a smokey eye.




Day 5


Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick Vintage Pink 


Rimmel's moisture renew formula is very hydrating on the lips and has SPF 20, so it's perfect for winter! The finish is very glossy for a lipstick. This shade Vintage Pink is a dusty mauve. 

Day 6


Chi Chi Viva La Diva Lipstick Social Butterfly

Chi Chi Viva La Diva lipstick is creamy and soft on the lips. This lipstick formula is one of my all time favourites! This shade Social Butterfly is a soft baby pink which is perfect for a pretty natural makeup look.

Younique lipstick is rich, highly pigmented and long lasting. Make a statement wearing Loaded a deep burgundy mauve shade. 


Day 8


DB Cosmetics Moisturising Lipstick Perfect Pink 

Designer Brands moisturising lipstick is very creamy, lightweight and comfortable on the lips. I prefer this formula over their matte long wear formula, because it contains Vitamin E and aloe vera which is great for dry lips during winter. Perfect Pink is my favourite shade.


Day 9 


Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick Kate Moss 20 

This collection of Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick by Kate Moss features intense bold colours with 8 hour long wear. This shade "20" is a deep fuchsia shade with looks pretty on fair, medium and deep skin.
