First Impressions + Swatches: TARTE Rainforest After Dark Palette


Tarte products have been the talk of the town for the past year or so and I certainly understand why. I recently jumped on the band wagon and started experimenting with a few Tarte goodies and boy, oh boy I don't think I will be stopping anytime soon.

In the midst of my Tarte rampage I picked up the Limited Edition Rainforest After Dark Coloured Clay Eye and Check Palette. I thought I would do a quick first impression post about this product as I know a lot of you beauty lovers have been eyeing this palette out. So let’s jump straight into the review (oh and get ready for some close up shots that look almost identical)!

Collective Haul!

There have been quite a few exciting releases from drugstore brands as of late which have caught my eye. However, as I'm not too keen on paying inflated prices I thought I would just buy from overseas and get it shipped to me via a forwarding service. I've also been feeling a little uninspired lately so to cheer myself up I thought I would do a little online shopping (any excuse will do actually!). Oh and now that I have drugstore products out of the way, I'm leaning towards a higher end haul.. ahh if only money grew on trees. Anyways, hope you guys enjoy this quick little haul!

Review: NYX Black Label Lipstick in Midnight Dinner

NYX, you've did it again. I don't know how but NYX has managed to get me hooked onto yet another one of their lip products, this time it's not a gloss but a lipstick. NYX Black Label Lipsticks are one of the best and most affordable on the market retailing for only $7.50 (or less due to constantly being on sale). Without further ado today's post will showcase my current obsession Midnight Dinner.

Current Favourites

I don't often blog 'favourites' posts as I'm honestly a very habitual person who easily gets stuck into a certain pattern when I find a product that works well. I have tried to work on this several times but what can I say, old habits die hard. I was feeling particularly adventurous today and thought I would share with you guys the products I've been constantly reaching for this Winter and hopefully next favourites post (probably in a year) will have different products.

Empties #10

I love composing 'empties' posts, not only do you get to purge yourself of garbage that you've accumulated (even though your partner constantly tells you to chuck it out), you also feel pretty darn good at using something (especially makeup) up. I'm feeling quite invincible at the moment as I've managed to finish 3 (yes 3, you've read it correctly) foundations this time around and quite a few other drips and drabs. However, to celebrate my victory I of course put through an order online that consisted of 4  brand spanking new foundations - ahh and the vicious circle continues. I have noticed I'm becoming increasingly slack when it comes to empties posts - maybe it's due to the fact that I have an attention span of a goldfish so I'm never able to continuously use a product until I've finished it, but I am concentrating on being more determined to do so from now on. Alas, here's my formidable empties post!
