November Wishlist 2014 (Holiday/Limited Edition)

I thought I would compile a holiday and/or limited edition products wishlist. I know all beauty lovers out there will be lusting over all these goodies, so let's all appreciate them together!

BRAND OVERVIEW: Gorgeous Cosmetics

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's Dawn! Yes, I do believe I'm back and fingers crossed it will stick this time.
I’m excited to share with you today a review/overview about a brand that I’ve been eyeing for quite some time now. I literally squealed with excited when I received an email asking to collaborate with this brand, and of course there was absolutely no hesitation from my part. As you can already see from the title that the brand is Gorgeous Cosmetics – now if you haven’t heard of them before let me give you a little insight. Gorgeous Cosmetics was founded in Melbourne, Australia, by makeup artist David McConnell. The brand focuses on providing luxurious cosmetics to emphasise natural beauty and create simple yet glamorous looks. Since its release the brand has expanded worldwide and is available in boutiques and even on site like Nordstrom. 

This post will showcase a few goodies from the brand and a quick summary of my genuine thoughts and impressions. Without further adieu let's jump in!

NOTD: ORLY Brush It On

Spring has finally sprung and I'm absolutely over the moon. I don't know what it is about warm weather but it seems it can always brighten up a bad situation. On another note I had the fabulous opportunity to test a few polishes from ORLY's Smokey Collection and thought I would share one of them with you as I think it would be a great polish to get into the beautiful Spring weather.

Let me introduce you guys to the amazing shade of Brush It On.

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!
