Stila Glitter On The Go – Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow Set

I picked up this little set for my best friend at Christmas time, and was pretty sad Mecca didn’t restock it once it sold out. But to my surprise and delight, I discovered this trio had returned with many new releases earlier this month.

Sephora Private Sale Recommendations

While my wishlist for Sephora Australia’s Private Sale is very humble (2-3 products at most), my list of recommendations is not!

Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow Review (Beauty Junkie)

Stila dedicated a shade to Aussie makeup lovers everywhere when they created Beauty Junkie (aptly named after the term “Mecca Beauty Junkie”). This shade was inspired by Mecca Maxima’s signature pink branding, and suits the makeup retailer’s aesthetic.

Post-Meccaland Anti-haul

For all the exciting new launches at Meccland, there were others that bored me. Here are the items I’m not going to buy once launched online and in stores at Mecca Maxima!

Too Faced Life’s a Festival collection

The unicorn trend is so early-2017 and is starting to feel very childish. I love a bit of cutesy packaging from time to time, but this collection crosses a line. It’s a no from me. And the same goes for the Tarte mermaid collection launching at Sephora Australia soon. Can we jump off the mythical-creature-inspired makeup bandwagon? Please?

Post-Meccaland Wishlist

I was pretty sad that I wasn’t able to go to Meccaland, but with the items launched at the event about to make their way in stores over the next few months, I’m getting over the fact I wasn’t at the event (maybe next year, Mecca?) So with that being said, here’s what’s on my post-Meccaland wishlist!

Makeup: it’s an investment

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.

Karrueche x Colourpop Fem Rosa ‘She’ eyeshadow palette swatches

I had a serious case of FOMO (fear of missing out) with this eyeshadow palette. After being out of stock for over two months, Colourpop announced they would have one final restock of the entire Karrueche x Colourpop collection. It didn’t take me long to decide I wanted this in my collection, and less than 24 hours after their restock, it had sold out.
