Physicians Formula "Ooh La la Sexy Eyes Trio" Review

A while back I was sent a very generous goody bag of new Physicians Formula products but I am yet to tackle it properly and see what's inside. I blame the fact that at 8.5 months pregnant my energy levels are at an all time low. But I did manage to take a quick peek inside the goody bag and this eyeliner trio caught my eye, so I thought a review is in order!

What is it?
The Physicians Formula Sexy Booster Ooh La La Sexy Eyes Trio (phew, mouthful!) is a trio of eyeliners designed to help you create a variety of eye looks. They're also hypoallergenic, dermatologist tested and safe for sensitive eyes. The eyeliners come in a little carry case. You get:
  • A felt tip liquid eyeliner to help you create a cat-eye flick
  • A kohl kajal eyeliner for dark and dramatic looks, works also perfectly on inner rims
  • An automatic eyeliner pencil for every day looks

A dupe for Lime Crime Utopia? Yeah, close enough!

Excuse the somewhat long and unexplained absence. We had no internet for a couple of weeks, then we went on a mini getaway to the Blue Mountains and before I knew it it was 3 weeks since my last post! Oops.

In other news, I'd been meaning to do a comparison post of the Lime Crime Velveteen in Utopia with the Savvy Ultra Matte lip colour in Icon, as I had a sneaking suspicion they might be dupes. So here it is.

Swatched side by side they're close, but not perfect. Icon is definitely more purple based whereas Utopia is warmer. However worn on the lips, and given enough time to dry on the lips, they're actually pretty darn close! In the lip swatch below I'm wearing Icon on the bottom lip with Utopia on top. I'm sure if you look closely enough you can tell the difference in shades, but to just a passing observer the difference is negligent.

Shopping my stash FOTD #1 - Featuring Sleek and MakeupGeek

Every once in a while I like to dig into my makeup stash and dig up something I haven't used in a while. Last weekend I re-discovered some old favourite Makeupgeek eyeshadows that were gathering dust, and a bright matte Sleek lipstick I used to wear a lot but then neglected for a while.

Makeup Look with some new Urban Decay and Bare Minerals purchases and a quick 29 week belly update

A few days after Urban Decay finally hit our shores I thought I'd go down to my local Mecca Maxima store and check it out. Blog research, you know. I definitely did not have a shopping list, and I sure as hell had no intention of ever getting the UD Naked 3 palette. But you know what, I got it, and it's awesome! I always assumed that the rose-gold tones in Naked 3 would not work with my complexion, that they might make my eyes look bloodshot or tired but in fact they're very versatile colours and surprisingly work well even with my dark features.

Besides the UD Naked 3 I also picked up another Bare Minerals lipstick, this time in the colour Fly High. I've become quite a fan of these lippies as they're super creamy, moisturising and surprisingly long lasting. Plus they're reasonably priced ($26) for the quality you get.

Here's a simple look that I did today wearing both new products.
