Eyeshadow is hard for me. Lipstick, contour, everything else I can do and if I may say so I do it well, but eye shadow some days I just can’t. I feel like I never end up with a good look. So for the last wee while my focus has been on mastering eyeshadow and bringing different colours and looks into my every day makeup looks. One of the things I have learnt while doing this is that you need an eyeshadow primer. I have used my Jordana eye primer off and on when I remembered, but when I got serious about upping my eyeshadow game I knew I had to start and eyeshadow primer hunt.
Freedom Cosmetics and Makeup Revolution are always the best place to start for me. In my recent haul from TAM beauty I slipped in a eyeshadow primer and hoped it would lead me down the path of fly eye makeup. Read more
Hows it going? Its getting kinda chilly here in Auckland, but its a good excuse to stay inside and watch too much tv. I have just started watching the Flash, anyone else watching it?
ANYWAY! Today’s post is all about L’Oreal’s latest Infallible Foundation and primer; 24hour matte foundatio and the matte priming base.
How is it going? August round up is late as anything, woops XD Well, here it is; some of the products I have been using through August.
Left to Right:
Jordana Eye Primer/Base, Australis Cya Later Pores, Trilogy Gentle Facial Exfoliant, Goodness Certified Organic Chia Seed Oil, Sleek Eye Brow Kit Extra Dark and Real Techniques Lash-Brow Groomer in front.
How has your week been? I have been desperately trying to make sure I am back on the blogging wagon and my posts are getting written and photos are getting taken. I also went shopping to make sure I had many things to blog out. Bwahahaha!
Today I have for you Maybelline’s Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser. I have heard so much about this product that when it finally launched in New Zealand (which took forever), I knew I had to give it a go.
Good Morning Lovelies,
I thought I would share with you more from my recent Makeup Revolution Haul. This time I am going to review the Ultra Face Base Primer. I have had quite a few months without a primer and have been trying to fill that void in my life XD When I was going through the Make Up Revolution website this was the only primer they had at the time. I liked the idea of it because it seemed a bit like the Maybelline Dream Smooth Primer, which I really liked (and it was my first post too).
So lets have a look 🙂
The tube is actually pretty big for $5.00 GBP
How has your week been? I have been desperately trying to catch up on the photos I need to take, but no sooner do I finish photographing my latest purchases something else turns up. Oh what a hard life it is, woe with me having all these new pretties to play with XD
Yesterday I received my first Makeup Revolution order. One of the ladies from the PANZ group shared the link with us and I immediately was sucked in my their large range of products. They look to relatively new and have some amazing looking products with awesome looking packaging (see chocolate palette, its next on my list). I picked up a few things for my first order and was impressed by the prices and the shipping costs $7.95 GBP to New Zealand here. I was very restrained in what I purchased, which was hard because everything is very reasonably price and looks awesome!

How have you been? I am at home today trying to get rid of a possible cold before it turns into the plague. The weather has been forgiving enough for me today to get you some photos of my recent purchases.
Where to start with this beauty? So I’ve recently decided to make the switch to M.A.C. cosmetics as my base makeup. It is something I have been thinking about for a while, because M.A.C. is not cheap here in New Zealand. I think for me the reasons to change to M.A.C. are I’m sick of having makeup that is close enough. Sometimes I’m lucky to find a brand that has a foundation light enough for me, but even then they’re usually the wrong tone. Then they don’t last very long or they dry my skin out. Then goodness forbid if you want to ask they lady behind the counter about one of the products. When I walked into M.A.C. to pick up Ronnie Red when the Archie’s Girls collection was released I was amazed at how well they new their collections. The staff actually seemed interested in helping me out.
I took the plunge a few weeks ago and went and looked at their foundations and was impressed at the variety and the interest from the staff to help me find the right product for me. When I asked about a primer that would go with the Pro Longwear foundation and concealer I was purchasing the M.A.C. lady was able to instantly come up with two suggestions for me and help me then narrow it down to one.
The Primer I came away with was M.A.C.’s Prep and Prime Skin.
It is time for my first ever MaSucree’s Make-up Musings post!
So today’s post is all about the new Maybelline New York Dream Smooth Primer, which supposedly doesn’t exist on the New Zealand or International Maybelline website It does however exist on the Australian Maybelline website. Who knows why?
Here’s what the website says about the primer:
“Smooths and perfects the skin to create a flawless canvas for effortless make-up application. 100% Smooth Perfection”
And does it deliver? Well keep reading and you’ll find out.
