Currently on rotation: Contour and Highlight Products

For quite a long time, 3 years to be precise, I only ever used the Benefit Hoola powder for contouring purposes. But then when that finished after years of daily use, instead of repurchasing it I ended up getting various other products from different brands. Why? Because lately the market has been flooded with contour and highlight products and I'm fickle like that when it comes to new products, no cosmetic loyalty!

So here's my collection of C&H products, with a mini review to boot.

theBalm Mary Lou Manizer review & photos

I definitely prefer a matte face,  but I don't know what it is, maybe the holiday season, but lately I've wanted a really glowing highlighter. This particular one from theBalm has been on my to-buy list for quite a while now, but I'd always wanted to have a swatch before getting it. Problem is in Australia this is sold at selected DJs stores only and my local stores did not have it so I hadn't got it until now. In the end I bought it from MYQTY online boutique, sight unseen, without swatching it and I have no regrets.

Australis Bronzeyed Girl Eyeshadow Palette

Hands up who else thinks Australis are really killing it lately with their new product releases? Two cases in point. 1. Velourlips - shops can't keep up with demand for these super long lasting lip creams. 2. Contouring & Highlighting palette sold out in 2 weeks (though I've heard it's now back in stock). And now they're releasing an eyeshadow palette which is also bound to be a best seller.

The Bronzeyed Girl eyeshadow palette contains 6 shimmery shades of golds, bronzes and coppers. They are all incredibly pigmented and they would make a great addition to a summer makeup kit.

Lipstick Tales: MAC Lipstick in Plum Dandy

If you've been following my blog for any length of time, then you'll know when it comes to lipsticks I tend to go for bright pinks, corals, oranges and purples. The colour I have here is not something that I would normally go for, it's just too... what's the word I'm looking for? Dull? Not really bright? Not out there? Yet when I saw it at my local MAC counter the other day I was really attracted to it and had to give it a try!

Two Ways I'm Wearing Colour On My Eyes

Every once in a while I get the urge to wear bright and colourful eyeshadows. It doesn't happen all the time, but when it does you can bet your bottom dollar I'll do some kind of coloured look for weeks on end. My colours of choice are generally blues, greens and purples, and here are 2 ways I incorporate them into my eye makeup.
