Savvy Ultra Matte Lip Colours - worth every penny and then some!

I've been harping on about these Savvy Ultra Matte lip colours for quite a while now, so I thought it's about time I devoted a whole post to them. These are the cheaper alternative to Lime Crime Velveteens, so if you've always wanted to try the LC but not sure if you'd like it then give these a go. At around $7 each they won't break the bank.

5 Blushes Currently on High Rotation

Just a quickie swatch post for you today of the 5 blushes I currently have on high rotation.

Left to right, they are:

  • NARS Orgasm - a classic really, a shimmery peach that I ignored for about a year and now I'm loving again. 
  • Illamasqua Naked Rose - this is quickly turning into my all time favourite blush, it's a neutral muted pink and as you can see I've already hit pan on it. 
  • Illamasqua Nymph - this is really cool toned and I don't think I can get away with wearing it in summer, but at the moment with my winter pale skin this looks great. 
  • Illamasqua Lover - oh... I just realised that 3 of the 5 blushes are from Illamasqua! As you can tell I love the brand. Lover was my first blush from the brand, it's a beautiful apricot shade that might not be everyone's cup of tea, but it is mine!
  • LA Colours Mineral Blush in Just Peachy - it's another shimmery blush, a slightly pinker version of NARS Orgasm, and only a tenth of the price!

And here are the swatches in natural light.

What do you think of these blushes? Have you tried any of them?

Manicare Nail Polish Remover wipes - a travel essential!

Oh my god people, have I been living under a rock? Why didn't anyone tell me about those handy little inventions called "nail polish remover wipes"! Surely I can't be the only person in the world not to have known about them? They are an absolute must for travel, if like me you need to have your nails in top condition at all times.

A few weeks ago we went overseas on a 10 day vacation. I knew no matter what polish I wore it would not last a whole 10 days without chipping. I toyed with the idea of getting gel nails, but decided against it in case somehow that too chipped, then I'd be stuck on vacation trying to find a salon to repair it. #firstworldproblems #iknow

3 Ways to Use Nude Eyeliner

Nude eyeliner is a makeup bag staple. If you don't have one and need a reason to get one, here are a few reasons for you.

1. You can use it on your brows
You can use it to either highlight your brow bone, or clean up any mess in case you made a booboo when drawing on your brows (yep, that's what I use it for because my hand isn't steady, and the Dipbrow that I use dries quickly so the only way to fix any mistakes is with this).

Boe Beauty Matte Lip Creams

What can you get for $2? If you live in Sydney, you can get half a cup of cappuccino, and maybe a couple of soft-serve ice creams. Or you can get boe beauty makeup! I had seen boe beauty at my local Big W store (it's the store's own brand), but because of how cheap it was I kinda overlooked it, because you know, sometimes I too fall in the trap of thinking if it's that cheap it can't be good. Well, I can't comment on the rest of the range (which includes eyeshadows, blushes, bronzers, etc) but I can tell you that these matte lip creams are worth more than their price tag!
