ALBUM REVIEW: Colbie Caillat All of You

album review 

I recently purchased Colbie Caillat's third studio album All of You. I originally bought the album just for the song What If  which was featured in one of my favourite movies from 2010 Letters to Juliet. But I can honestly say I have fallen in love with the Colbie Caillat's amazing voice and new songs. This album is perfect for summer. I would describe her music style as Pop mixed with Reggae, with a dash of Country. All songs on this album were written by Colbie and focus of love and life. My favourite tracks are What If and Dream Life, Life

Colbie Caillat's new album ALL OF YOU is available now on iTunes.

REVIEW: Australis Colour Inject Mineral Lipstick

Australis Colour Inject Mineral Lipstick

When it comes to finding a cheap drug store lipstick, you can't go past my favourite Aussie Lipstick, Australis Colour Inject Mineral Lipstick. These lipsticks launched last year and each shade is name after a popular dance style. My favourite colour is Jive, a perfect musky pink. The best feature about these lipsticks is the fragrance, which reminds me of my childhood, they smell just like musk lollies! The texture is soft, thick and creamy and long lasting. The other shade I really love is Mambo which is a nice browny nude. This shade goes perfectly with Australis lipliner pencil in Nudie Rudie.  
  • Long lasting, moisturising and nourishing lip colour. 
  • It’s an injection of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. 
  • Contains Kakadu plum which is the world’s highest known source of Vitamin C

Active Ingredients: 

Vitamin E: Powerful antioxidant, moisturises and enhances skin smoothness
UV filters: Absorb, reflect, scatter and block ultraviolet radiation

Revlon Colorburst Lipstick Review

Revlon Colorburst Lipstick in Candy Pink

I discovered these lipsticks about a year ago when I received one in a Revlon gift with purchase. I was really impressed with the smooth and creamy texture and the weightless feel of these new lipsticks. I have always been a fan of Revlon lipsticks and lip glosses and Revlon Colorburst is my new favourite lipstick obsession! My favourite shade is Soft Nude, it's the perfect skin tone nude and suits fair and medium skin tones. Revlon just released brand new colours and one of my favourites is their Candy Pink, it's a vibrant yet sheer neon pink. The packaging is very luxurious for a drug store brand. The only thing I don't like about these lipsticks is the fact that they are melt very easily. The first one I got I left in my handbag in the car for about an hour during shopping and it melted. I had a few other lipsticks in my handbag but the revlon colorburst was the only one that was affected by the heat. So I certainly don't recommend this lipstick for hot summer days! 
  • Instant burst of color with a featherlight feel
  • Elasticolor technology provides immediate colour release and hugs lips with a burst of weightless colour that feels like a second skin.
  • Moisturisers and anti-oxidants, including Sweet Almond Oil to improve lip texture
  • Film-forming polymers for long wear and lip conditioning 
  • 20 gorgeous shades 
My favourite shades: Soft Nude, Blush, Candy Pink
Price: $23.95

OUTFIT OF THE DAY: Javaboi meets Barbie!

Outfit of the Day
Javaboy x Barbie

For today's look, being a Sunday I had a little extra time to spend on my beauty routine, so I decided to curl my hair with a curling iron. To create these big soft loose curls, I used a Vidal Sassoon 1 inch ceramic curling iron. I love this curling iron because it has a temperature control so I can turn up the heat to maximum to get longer lasting curls. 

Makeup of the Day

My makeup today is classic brown smokey eyes with baby pink lips. This is a great look for weekends or work days it's natural and pretty and suits most eye colours. I used my Too Faced Romantic Eye palette for this look. I applied the shimmery metallic brown colour to the outer 2 thirds of my eye and into the crease. I then applied the matte pale pink tone into the crease and blended up towards the brow. I applied the shimmery lemon highlight colour to my brow bone and inner corner of my eyes. I used Nude Beach from the Too Faced Natural Eye palette for the inner third of my eyes to brighten up this look. 
I also applied black liquid eyeliner to my top lashline, black pencil to my water line and lots of black mascara. 

For my lips I wanted to add some colour to this look, and to continue with my Romantic theme I lined by lips with a medium pink lipliner then applied Australis Colour Inject Lipstick in Jive. It's a perfect musky pale pink. Plus it reminds me of my childhood because when applied it smells like musk lollies! 

  • Too Faced Romantic Eye Palette (Ever After, Kiss the Bride, Soulmates)
  • Too Faced Natural Eye Palette (Nude Beach) 
  • Australis Colour Inject Mineral Lipstick (Jive) 

My 3rd outfit of the day video in this series features one of my favourite Javaboi Industries T-Shirts. This dark brown Javashirt has cute pink tartan writing which says "Tea is Just Coffee's Gay Cousin". This shirt is fun and casual with lets people know you have a cute sense of humour.

OUTFIT OF THE DAY: Black Javaboi Tee

Black Javaboi Tee

Saturday's outfit of the day was black and white. I wore my Javaboi Industries Black Javaboi Javashirt with black and white shimmery smokey eyes. 

Makeup of the Day 

  • NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils (Milk) (Black Bean) 
  • Red Earth Eyeshadow (Black Panther) 
  • Too Faced Eyeshadow (Silky Teddy)

For my eyes I started by creating an eyeshadow base using NYX Jumbo Eye pencils in Milk (white) and Black Bean (black). I applied the white pencil to the inner third of my eye and blended with my fingers, then used the black pencil on the outer 2 thirds of my eye up to the crease. I patted on a black shimmery eyeshadow (black panther by Red Earth) over the black base and blended slightly into the crease. I then applied a skin tone colour eyeshadow (silky teddy by Too Faced) under my eyebrow and blended down to my crease. To brighten the eye I applied a bright white shimmery loose eyeshadow (fairy dust by She) over the white base on the inner corner of my eye. I applied a thick line of black liquid eyeliner, the one I love to use is Maybelline's Line Stiletto liquid eyeliner. I then gave my lashes a few coats of thick black mascara (L'Oreal Voluminous). 

For nude lips, I lined just outside my natural lip line with Model Co's Nude Illusion Lipliner. Then applied a generous coat of Revlon Colorburst lipstick in Soft Nude to my lips. To add gloss and shimmer I applied a layer of Napoleon Perdis Luminous Lip Veil in The Gold and The Beautiful

Shia heats up Details Magazine

Transformers Dark of the Moon star and Hollywood "Bad Boy" Shia LaBeouf heats up the August cover of Details Magazine. Shia looks so hot and sexy posing with a yellow Camero. In the exclusive revealing interview, Shia discusses this new movie Transformers 3, his worst date ever with Hilary Duff and his relationship with Megan Fox. 

Shia says: "Look, you're on the set for six months, with someone who's rooting to be attracted to you, and you're rooting to be attracted to them," he explains. "I never understood the separation of work and life in that situation. But the time I spent with Megan was our own thing, and I think you can see the chemistry onscreen."

You can catch Shia on the big screen as Sam Witwicky fighting alien robots in Transformers Dark of the Moon.

MAKEUP HAUL: Revlon, Too Faced

Beauties it's time for a new Makeup Haul. I bought some new makeup recently. My new favourite makeup obsession is Lipstick! It's an instant mood booster and a fun way to express my personality. 

I recently picked up the new Revlon Colorburst Lipstick in Candy Pink 008. This shade is a soft "candy pink". I  soft nude 

I also purchased Just Bitten Lip Stain in passion which is a lip pen that features a lip stain on one end and a lip balm on the other.  This shade passion is a light pink. 

You can wear the lip satin alone with a layer of lip balm over the top for a subtle natural your lips but better look. You can also wear this lip satin under your lipstick to extend the life of your lipstick. As your lipstick wears off during the day, your lips will still be pink from the lip stain you applied first. 

My new favourite eyeshadow palette from Too Faced features 8 eyeshadows from 4 of their best selling eyeshadow palettes. I am literally obsessed with Too Faced eyeshadow palettes! I already own the Natural Eye palette and the Romantic Eye Palette. 

This Too Faced eyeshadow palette includes: 

  • Heaven (matte) and Push-Up (shimmer) from Natural  
  • Silver Spoon (silver shimmer) and Smolder (matte black) from Smokey
  • Satin Sheets (pale pink shimmer) and Like A Virgin (matte smokey grey) from Naked
  • Honeymoon (lime green shimmer) and Ever After (brown shimmer) from Romantic 

Too Faced Eye Love Eyeshadow Collection

This palette is ideal for travelling because it contains the most loved shades in fairly neutral wearable colours which can be mixed and matched to create many different looks. From a soft romantic eye to a dark sexy smokey eye.
