If you’ve read my previous Anastasia Beverly Hills posts on Metallic Rose or Runway Red, you’ll already know how much I love Anastasia’s gloss formula. The thing I don’t love is that my Metallic Rose gloss broke, so not wanting to be without the shade, I headed into Sephora to pick up a new one. It was in store that I learned the glosses were being discontinued in Sephora Australia, so I decided to pick up another shade – St Tropez.
A new lipstick really wasn’t on my radar, but when I saw Sephora was taking an extra 20% off sale items, I couldn’t resist picking up the Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick ‘Mother’ in limited edition packaging for $12.40 AUD.
While shopping around for a new Home and Contents Insurance plan, my hubby suggested I get an estimate on how much my valuables cost. Considering how much money, time and effort has gone into my makeup collection over the last two or so years, I decided I’d get an approximate value on my stash. After an hour of cataloging each item (not including skincare, brushes or almost-used up items) into a spreadsheet, I was shocked to discover my collection was three times the cost (RRP) of my initial guesstimate. *insert flying money emoji here*
I don’t mind spending 20 minutes blending eyeshadows and creating semi-sophisticated colour gradients – but if I’m honest, most work days I’m too lazy and pressed for time to do that. So I’ve complied a list of my favourite single use eyeshadows that allow me to wipe, lightly blend and I’m good-to-go.
After trying (and loving!) Stila’s Shimmer and Glow in the shade Freedom, I decided I wanted to add another to my collection – something more neutral, but also able to be paired with my glitter and glows – enter Boheme.
My faovurite type of skincare items are the ones that come in spray form. No rubbing, lathering or rinsing required is my kind of (hashtag) lazy-girl routine. After trying (and using up until the last drop) my Mario Badescu Rosewater spray, I wanted to try this one out for something different.
