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.

2017 has been a big year in beauty. From warm eyeshadows to multi-coloured highlights, this year has seen a variety of trends (some of which I’m happy to leave behind!) Here are my favourite products of 2017.
As someone who doesn’t love wearing a red lip all that often, I was surprised to find a few in my collection. Today I’m running through their formulas, showing comparison swatches, and sharing my favourite ways to rock a red lip (however rare that is!)
