Miss T’s September Wishlist

Miss T’s September Wishlist

Good Evening!

How is it going? I have had a busy week with work projects and study research proposals being handed in, but I feel like I am up to date finally! Now I have the weekend to take photos and prepare more blog posts! Yay!

Today I went out for brunch and shopping with my BFF, which resulted in me coming home with a wishlist a mile long. I was strong and purchased nothing but food and coffee. So I thought I would share with you my current wishlist. Some of the things on it are new and some of them have been on it a while. So take a look!

Maybelline Brow Drama Sculpting Brow Mascara

– $14.95 NZD
– Available from Ulta (US) makeup.co.nz (NZ), Farmers (NZ)

I am all about the brows and making sure they look perfect, this looks as though it promises to make life easy. I also love being able to give it a go and it not cost me and arm and a leg.

Rimmel London Kate Moss Dare to Go Bare Collection

Australis Matte Me Lip Mattifier Stick

Link
– $13.95 AUD
– Available from Farmers (NZ) or Australis Website (International)

I am just so curious to see if this works. I have some great colours that I would love to see if I could rock them matte as well. It would mean I could wear all those lipsticks in so many more ways.

Sleek Precious Metals Highlighting Palette

Link
– $14.00 USD

This whole entire collection, I just need it all! Who does not love a good multichrome??

 

MAC Lipstick Men Love Mystery

Oh man, I saw this in store today and swatched it on my hand. I loved it so much that I could not try it on my lips, I knew I would purchase it. Its just so pretty :3

Makeup Revolution Salvation Palette Give Them Nightmares

Link
– $6.00 GBP

I have had my eye on this for such a long time, I just love all of those colours. I feel like I need to coax some of my friends into a group buy to get this in my life soon.

Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Ole Flamingo

Good Morning,

Bourjois has finally reached the shores of New Zealand and is available in select Farmers’ stores. When I found out I made sure to pay a visit to the nearest store and have a good look. The selection is pretty good and the prices are not too bad, including foundation, mascara, eye shadows, blushes, primer and lipsticks. I decided on trying one of their rouge edition velvet’s in Ole Flamingo.

Good Morning!

PARCELS!!

Some of my before Christmas and Boxing Day orders are starting to arrive. Parcels everywhere! *frolics through parcels*

I wanted to share my parcel from Kosmetik4less.de, as they are a website I have only just discovered. They have a selection of brands including: essence, Catrice, W7 and Makeup Revolution. They are one of the few reliable places I have found Essence for sale.

06-01-2015 K4L Haul BoxThe box came all nicely cushioned with air cushion thingies and tissue paper. They also included a cute paper bag. I ordered just before Christmas so I had no hope that it would arrive before Christmas, but shipping was about three weeks from Germany to New Zealand during the holiday period. I am quite impressed.

Their website is available in both English and German, so don’t worry about trying to find your way. Some of my confirmation emails were in German though, so just run them through translate.

Here is what I purchased.06-01-2015 K4L HaulAll the essence! Which I will be reviewing soon for you all 🙂 All of it is from recent trend editions, which despite NZ having stands we don’t keep up to date with trend edition *sob* So I am so glad I found Kosmetik4Less :3

I will definitely be using Kosmetik4Less again, their prices are really good, shipping is not too expensive and arrives in a timely manner. Make sure you check em out!

MAC Flatter Me Pearlmatte Face Powder

MAC Flatter Me Pearlmatte Face Powder

Good Morning,

I saved one of my biggest lemmings for the first review of 2015. MAC’s Pearlmatte Face Powder in Flatter me from the Archie’s Girls Collection.

I am a huge MAC fan, but the collection that started it for me was the Archie’s Girls Collection, which came out in 2013. It of course quickly sold out because it was awesome and in super cute, limited edition packaging. I managed to score Ronnie Red lipstick and the limited edition packaging of Black Swan. I also was lucky enough to find the last tube of Strawberry Malt lip glass in Auckland.

The cute pearl matte face powders with hearts in the powder were something I desperately wanted, but could not find for the life of me. It was only in the last few months I found them in a MAC facebook group I am in for sale. I bought Flatter Me first, because it was my favourite and I now have Veronica’s Blush on the way soon.

So lets see just how amazing it is.

Lime Crime Red Velvet

Lime Crime Red Velvet

Good Morning!

I have a Christmas present to share with you today. Mr Gabby bought me a new tube of Lime Crime‘s Red Velvet as part of my Christmas present. Isn’t he the sweetest?? I realised that I had never shared my swatches of Red Velvet with you all. While I was swatching I realised that there was some small differences between my old/original Red Velvet and my new one, so I thought I would swatch both to show you.Lime Crime Red Velvet Read more
