I have wanted this palette ever since I first saw the early swatches on Instagram. My love of peanut butter knows no bounds and I thought what product could be better suited to be my first from Too Faced. Read more
The last few weeks have been quite tough, I have been stuck at home watching bad romance movies and playing too much World of Warcraft. Yesterday I gave my hair a bit of a trim and treated my skin to a face mask or two and slapped on some makeup. I wanted to share with you my Makeup of the Day as I was quite pleased with how it turned out.
Not the most glamorous of faces, but not bad for my first face full in two weeks. I am really pleased with how well the my eye makeup turned out, the eye shadows really made my green eyes pop and Miss Manga Mascara is really growing on me, look at the my eyelashes.

How has your last few weeks been? What have you been wearing on your face?
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!

How has your week been? I started study again last month and I am feeling a little insane for studying while working and trying to get my blog back up to date. Who needs sleep? XD
How has your week been? Mine was busy and over far too quickly. I got a good amount of swatching and Supernatural watching done 😀
Today I have for you Makeup Revolutions, I heart Chocolate. I thought with the announcement of the most recent addition to the uber cute chocolate palette range from Makeup Revolution I better finally get my review posted. Read more
Its back to work for me this week. So I thought I would do something a little different for today’s post. This post is all about my favourite cosmetics from 2014. The products aren’t necessaryily new in 2014, but products I used and enjoyed the most last year.
So lets see what made my favourites.
Did you catch any bargains in the boxing day sale? I think my debit card privileges have been revoked XD Lucky I have that memorised;) I have several parcels from ebay, iherb and beauty bay on their way. I am so excited, I am already waiting at the door for them.
Today I have for you eye shadows from a new brand I discovered when I was out Christmas shopping…for other people…not just myself. NV Colour had a stand at my local Life Pharmacy with a selection of nail polishes, eye shadows, lipsticks, lipstick pencils, eye liners and eye shadow pencils. The max price was about $15 NZD. I found their website, it looks as though they are a UK brand and you can purchase from their website.
So lets check out Aubergine and Olive from the eye shadow range.
Today I finally have for you the swatches of my pretty little M.A.C. Alluring Aquatic Extra Dimension eye shadows, Lorelei and Silver Sun. They are from the same collection as Goddess of the Sea,which you can find swatches of here.
The Alluring Aquatic Collection has some of the coolest packaging I have seen in a while. All the items in this collection come in metallic, teal blue cases with faux water droplets. Even the boxes come like that too. I had high hopes for this collection as I wanted to get as many things as possible so I could cherish the awesome packaging. I think I was pretty lucky to score the lipstick and two shadows :3
So click on through and lets have a look.
See! The boxes are so cool :3 I have of course kept them.
Squeee! The water droplets are even raised so they look pretty real.Lorelei: I am sorry for the already used product photos and the product around the edges. I couldn’t wait to use it *hangs head* I also have used it a tonne more when I found out this photo has shadow everywhere -_-
BUT! Look at it isn’t it pretty?!
Lorelei: I am such a sucker for nude eye shadows and when I saw the swatches for Lorelei I knew that I had to at least get this one. It is a glamed up nude shadow with awesome bronze and gold tones to it. It looks good blended with other colours or by its self.Silver Sun: I really love how the Extra Dimension eye shadows have waves and MAC pressed into them.Silver Sun: I wanted this colour when I saw all the swatches and when I got my hands on it in store, but then when I got it home I was like….now what? How am I going to wear this? Today I grabbed it thinking it was Lorelei and when I got to work to apply my make-up I discovered it was Silver Sun. I was just going to go without eye shadow today and then I thought “Just use it, why else did you buy it?”. It is actually an amazing colour and looks really good with my pale skin and green/hazel eyes. It is a metallic, green toned, gunmetal grey colour, which looks pretty awesome with black eyeliner.
Now have some swatches!
I don’t know if it just me, but they seem to have a small shift in them. It is more than likely the shimmer in them. I am so very pleased with these two colours. They are nice every day colours, but also very different to what is already in my collection.
Did you manage to score anything from the MAC Alluring Aquatic Collection?
