Hey Everyone!

Along with my MAC brushes, my NARS blushes are probably one of my most prized posessions in my make-up collection. In fact, they pretty much have a drawer to themselves. With racy names like “Orgasm” and “Deep Throat”, NARS created an international stir but a justified one at that for their blushes are simply amazing.  With beautiful shades and lasting colors, it’s pretty much what every blush should strive to be like.

I have in total six single NARS Blushes and one NARS Duo in Albatross and Torrid. I’ve also attatched ratings to each blush in the form of a scale of cute little red hearts. A magnificent, must get blush is 5 hearts and a blush you can skip is 1 heart. Note that although I’ve said that I’m in love with NARS blushes, the blushes with low ratings simply don’t suit my skintone but the formula remains the same. You’ll see what I mean.

Hey Everyone!

I’ve never had really dark under-eye circles fortunately, but unfortunately I receive many questions on how you can eliminate these often annoying flaws. The truth is, I’m not an expert. I’m not an expert because I don’t get them often so when I woke up one day and looked into the mirror to see them flashing back at me, I yelled in excitement for this was an opportunity to well, “eliminate” them. Using make-up that is.

Go Away, Dark Circles?

Here’s a bit of background to dark under-eye circles first. Before you go running around finding a cold cucumber and some ice, I’m going to tell you first off that it probably won’t work. Dark circles are often genetic. That means it runs in your blood. Don’t worry, there’s worse things out there. I have diabetes and high blood pressure running in my blood so it’s not the end of the world. It just simply means somewhere in your family, your mom, your dad probably has dark circles too. If that is so, there’s no magic cream or cure that will rid of them forever. Of course dark circles can also be caused from a lack of sleep (that’s where mine come from), stress, or living habits or even aging. How do you take them away forever? You can’t. So well, you might as well hide them.

Hey Everyone,

I honestly think we need some epic music right about now. The time has come to depott my primer potion. I’ve seen blog posts and I’ve seen videos in the past so with basically nothing coming out on the wand of my UDPP and no retail counter to purchase my beloved primer at, I took out a cutting board, a sharp knife and looked at the bottle with kind eyes, ready to say “Goodbye”.

The tools of the trade? Committing a crime against your UDPP needs a decent knife. I don’t recommend a serrated knife like I used in this tutorial, but I didn’t have one on hand in Australia. You need a small sample jar so that you can keep the remainng UDPP and of course a cutting board where the magic will happen.

Hey Everyone!

I’ve only recently had one of those days. You’ve just finished a full day of uni, you’re dead tired, your hair is flopped down and your make-up is pretty much non-existant. As you’re waiting to cross the street, the man of your dreams comes walking towards you, you peer into the glass pane behind you to see how you look and probably one word comes to your mind, “S***”. I probably shouldn’t swear on this blog.

My advice to you? Run like the wind!

We all have a decent amount of days when we wish our make-up lasted forever, or perhaps we wished that at least it wouldn’t oil up so fast. Perhaps that after our sunscreens are applied, we could at least have a smooth canvas to apply our foundation. Well believe it or not, there are a few make-up products that claim to do all three and those are what we term make-up primers. In particular, I’ll talk about face primers today or foundation primers just because I’ve made a pretty decent example of eye-shadow primers: here

Hey Everyone!

I’ve had a horrible urge to shop lately and not the kind of shopping that can be quelled by a credit card or a web browser either, the kind that calls for paper bags and more than a bit of immediate satisfaction. So today was shopping day and knowing me, I was prepared to walk away from this day empty handed as I often do but as I dug through my bag, I came across a 10% LUSH voucher. Recently turned LUSH addict, I merrily walked to the store knowing that this was my chance to satisfy a much abandoned urge.

I tried mostly all the products I got from LUSH (not very many) tonight. Yes, I did wash my hair with beer, slathered seaweed all over my face and then painted it over with a face mask that made me look more Smurf than human being. You gotta love LUSH right? Thus, I’ll give a few of my own first impressions of the slightly unconventional bath products I’ve added to my collection today. Plus, I have a little surprise from KIT and at the end of this post, I’ll quell your jealous smirks and tell you all about roseannebeauty mail order as well!
