Review: Jane Iredale Pure Pressed Eyeshadow Triple in Golden Girl

Now I don't know about you but I feel like a kid in candy store when it comes to eyeshadows. So many colours and finishes - ahh i just can't help myself. So when I received the opportunity to trial the Jane Iredale Pressed Eyeshadow Triple I was jumping for joy! And what better news than to find out the compact consists of neutral shades - whoopee. I know for many of your makeup lovers out there, me included, we all have an obsession with neutral shadows (otherwise Urban Decay would be out of business), there is just never enough to satisfy our needs. But for all you level-headed individuals who buy makeup for a normal human being (unlike hoarders who believe we have 100 faces to paint *ahem*) I think I may have discovered the best essentials compact for you.

Review: Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush in Flush

Tarte, Tarte, Tarte. Where have you been all my life? One thing that sucks about living in Australia is the restricted availability we have to certain brands. Sure, we could order from the U.S with a shipping forwarding company, but why can't there just be international shipping? 

But back to the main topic (going off on tangents seem to be my thing at the moment), Tarte blushes have been on my mind ever since I first heard about the brand a year or two ago. If my memory serves right, I believe the person who introduced me to Tarte was Estee from EssieButton. Now the time has finally come for me to own/use a Tarte product (of course I chose blush) and the real question is: Does the Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush live up to the hype?

Current Beauty Wishlist (June '14)

Life has been pretty hectic lately, so unfortunately I haven't had the opportunity to write a full-on review blog post for you guys. Hopefully, I will fully get back into blogging very, very soon, but in the mean time I thought I would keep it short and simple and show you guys what I've been lusting over for the last couple of weeks!

NOTD: China Glaze First Class Ticket & OPI Goldeneye

Another Monday Tuesday, another Nail of the Day post. My manicures have been quite dull and lacking character lately, so I thought I would revert back to the accent nail that I used to be in love with, to add some spark.
