Review: Bourjois Volume Glamour Ultra Curl Mascara

I'm a bit hit and miss when it comes to Bourjois. I want to love the brand, I really do. Their packaging is just adorable and oh so French. The colours look gorgeous. And the little pots of eyeshadows look like mini-macaroons good enough to eat! But it seems like the brand doesn't want to love me. For example none of their foundation shades match me. None I tell you. They all make me look ashen and grey. Or their eyeshadows. I love how cute the little pots are but for me they lack pigmentation. And the cost of the products are also at at a funny price point... is it a drugstore brand or a department store brand?

So why am I here reviewing a Bourjois product? Because I still have high hopes I'll find something from Bourjois that I will love, and also this was one of my prizes that I won at Tine's 5 year blog anniversary giveaway.

So, what do I think?

I'm actually pleasantly surprised.
  • The curved brush makes it very easy to apply mascara to the lashes, from root to tip. 
  • Unless you curl your lashes first, the curl given is minimal but on the plus side it holds the whole day.
  • Two coats is enough for naturally curled lashes, but if you're like me and decide to go a third coat it will clump. You have been warned. 
  • The mascara lasts the whole day without smudging and does not flake.
  • Doesn't give you "crunchy" lashes and washes off easily with just a regular cleanser.

Will this become my HG mascara? No. It doesn't give the intense volume and dramatic curl that it claims to give, and if you've been a regular reader of my blog you'll know I love lots of volume, lots and lots of volume! But overall it is a better than average mascara, especially if you're after something suitable for daytime.

Have you tried this mascara before?

Lipstick Love - Illamasqua "Over"

No matter the weather or season (it's winter in Australia) no other makeup item makes me feel better than a bright lipstick.
On lips: Illamasqua lippy in "Over. On cheeks: Illamasqua cream blush in "Sob"

Illamasqua lipstick in Over
I bought this at the same time that I bought the cream blush in Sob, during the Illamasqua sale at Myer. The colour immediately jumped out at me, how could it not? It's bright, it's orange, and it's Illamasqua.

I won't go on an on about why I love Illamasqua lippies, but here are a couple of quick points about this particular one.
- matte formula so stays on the lips for hours
- is less drying than my other matte lippies from Illamasqua
- it will accentuate any dry flaky bits on lips so make sure to moisturise and exfoliate lips first
- highly pigmented and applies true to colour no matter what your natural lip shade

Swatches & Comparisons

Here are some lip swatches in various lighting.

And here is how Illamasqua "Over" compares to a few other orangey toned lippies for your reference.

What do you think of this colour? Is it something you'd wear or is it too bright?

Belly update, I won a giveaway and what should I read?

Feels like I've been pregnant forever
Well I'm now 38 weeks pregnant... that means the baby is officially due in 2 weeks but in reality he could be here at any time. His head is already engaged and he's lying in the right position ready to make his world debut.

I've been very lucky so far in that I've had a relatively easy pregnancy. That all changed last week when I managed to injure my pelvis making me unable to take even one step without holding on to something or someone. My doctor diagnosed me with SPD (apparently happens to 1 in 4 preggo women) and referred me to a physio who actually made things worse, to the point that I couldn't sit, stand, walk or lay down without tears coming to my eyes. I ended up going back to my chiropractor who specializes in pregnancy issues and she worked her magic on me where now I can walk unaided even though it's still painful.

As for the baby? Oblivious to my pain he's happily kicking and punching and doing all kinds of acrobatics in there :-)

And even though I've now started freaking out at the whole labor and delivery part, I can't wait till the little one is finally out and in our arms. And also I'd love to be able to sleep on my stomach again!

I won a blog giveaway!
In other news which made me forget my injuries somewhat, I won the wonderful Tine's 5 year blog anniversary giveaway on Beautyholics Anonymous, full of Dior, Illamasqua, Revlon and more... Below is just a sample of what was in my winning package, and once I start using them I'll be featuring them on the blog. Thank you so much Tine, you're awesome!

Read any good books lately?
I forgot to mention that I started maternity leave last week, and until the baby arrives (plus the fact I'm kind of confined to the house since I'm no longer able to drive due to the injury) I have some time to catch up on reading. So if you've read any good books lately, and I read all kinds of novels, please let me know in the comments.

Parisa's top 5 MAC lipsticks (Guest Post)

Aaah a lipstick post. You know how much I love my lipsticks, and I also love finding out what others' favourite lipsticks are so this guest post from Parisa is right up my alley! Parisa is a 21 year old university student from the North-East of England. She blogs over at Addicted to a Life of Material and can also be found on Twitter (@Parisa909). Over to you Parisa!

Top 5 MAC Lipsticks
After watching the beautiful Zara’s video on her top 5 MAC lipsticks, it got me thinking which ones were my favourites. 99% of my lipstick collection is from MAC, I just adore the colour range, rich pigmentation and the staying power. It took me a while to whittle them down to just 5, but these are my top choices…

MAC Please Me
My ultimate pink lipstick! It’s so flattering on my lips, a matte cool-toned pink that applies so creamily and it’s just a pleasure to wear. It goes with every single make up look, I pair this with dramatic eye make up and my everyday neutral look. 

MAC Pink Nouveau
Gorgeous barbie-pink shade, again cool-toned and far brighter than Please Me. It really does make teeth look whiter and is wearable enough for the daytime. Such a fun lipstick shade, it suits so many skin-tones, it’s a long-loved favourite of Lady GaGa and Nicki Minaj, which proves my point!

MAC Vegas Volt
Beautiful shade of coral with a hint of orange, love the colour against my skin-tone. It’s the perfect complement to peach blush and bronzer, with brilliant pigmentation. I think this shade is definitely one to look at if you have tanned or dark skin. Even though it’s so bold, I still wear it during the day, especially during the rare spells of sunshine we get in England!

MAC Impassioned
My top choice for a night out, Impassioned is an intense bright pink with a fuchsia undertone. It’s so in-your-face and I have never seen a lipstick like it! It’s uber-pigmented and looks different on a majority of skin tones, I enjoy how loud it is, and how the hint of watermelon provides a great alternative to red lipstick, which I have a love/hate relationship with.

MAC Lady Danger
I know I just said I have a love/hate relationship with red lipstick, but on the occasions I feel like wearing it, it’s got to be Lady Danger! It’s a matte red with an orange undertone, it’s bright, and it’s so timeless and bold. I love how it makes my thin lips look bigger, without me having to resort to Juvederm yet! The finish of it means it lasts all day long, with bright colours I always take my time to apply lip balm (Burts Bees), clear lip-liner (Urban Decay Ozone) and then use a lip brush for precise definition.


Thank you Parisa for giving us an insight into your Top 5 MAC lippies. It's good to see two of my favourites, Impassioned and Pink Nouveau, have made it on her list too. 
So if you'd like to read more from Parisa head on over to her BLOG.

NOTD Tutorial - mint chocolate nails

Two things. One: I've never tried my hand at nail art before (too scared they might look tacky on me). Two: I love the colour combination of mint and chocolate together. It's such a fresh combo that looks good no matter the season.

Feeling bored one day I thought I'd do something other than just paint my nails a single colour. But since I don't have the talent to do anything complicated, the easiest thing I could think of was doing mint and chocolate diagonal colour blocking on my nails. This is how it turned out.

essie mint candy apple hot cocoa easy nail art

Overall I'm quite happy with it and I don't think it looks tacky at all. Here are the simple steps I took to do the above nail look, using Hot Coco and Mint Candy Apple both from Essie.

So, how do you feel about nail art? Yay or nay?

Chanel Illusion D'Ombre in Illusoire

Ever since I got my first Illusion D'Ombre (in Ebloui, reviewed HERE) from Jen's blog sale I've wanted to get another colour, the purply silver shade called Illusoire to be precise.

Chanel Illusion D'Ombre in Illusoire
The reason I wanted to get this colour in particular is because I knew this unique shade would look fantastic worn on its own. Let's face it, when you're 38 weeks preggers the last thing you want is to stand in front of the mirror for hours blending eyeshadows. Actually you don't have to be pregnant to appreciate how easy and quick it is to create a gorgeous eye look with just this one eyeshadow.

What I like about it
  • Texture - the soft texture feels very luxe when you apply it
  • Colour and shimmer - the colour is quite unique, and the shimmer just makes it look great worn on its own
  • Ease of application - you can't really mess up this eyeshadow, it's very very easy to apply

What I don't like about it
  • Price - If I could find this exact shade in the L'Oreal Colour Infallibles range I would have bought that instead, as I still think the quality of the L'Oreal is overall better than the Chanel. HERE is my comparison of the two.
  • Pigmentation - even though it's quite pigmented, you need several goes with the brush to transfer the colour onto the lid.
  • Lasting power - There is noticeable fading after about 8 hours and for something so pricey I expected more.

Here are some swatches below in various lighting. I know it looks extremely pigmented in the swatches, but you don't get the same level of pigmentation using a brush.

And below is a quick smokey eye using only Chanel Illusoire and mascara. So even though it's pricey and you need several goes with a brush to get the colour to deposit on the lid, the fact that it looks like I've made a lot more effort than I actually have makes this a winner in my eyes. Top pic is with no flash, bottom pic is with flash.

Have you tried the Chanel Illusion D'Ombre Eyeshadows?

Illamasqua Cream Blush in Sob - review, swatches & comparison

What's that? Another Illamasqua purchase? I'm obsessed with the brand, what can I say. Especially when they're on sale!

The husband and I spent a rainy Saturday in Myer Sydney City which means I made a beeline straight for the Illamasqua counter. Imagine my total joy when I saw that most Illamasqua products were 20 - 40% off. The cream blushes were 40% off so of course I went straight for them, as their formula is to die for. I already own Laid (reviewed HERE) and Rude (reviewed HERE) so this time I went for the baby pink Sob.

Illamasqua Cream Blush in Sob
  • Like all other cream blushes from Illamasqua, this feels very light and non sticky. 
  • Very easy to blend on the cheeks using your fingers or a kabuki brush
  • I normally wear it over my powdered skin and I find not only does it not go patchy, it also stays on all day. 
  • The colour of Sob is a very cool icy pink so I can't say it's a suit-all colour. You absolutely must try this on your own skintone before you buy it. I'm currently MAC NC25 and if I was any darker this wouldn't show up on my skin or would just look unnatural.
  • Can also be worn on the lips, but is very drying so a lip balm is essential. 

Here are some swatches of Sob and a comparison to my other Illamasqua pink cream blush, Laid.

And here's how it looks on my NC25 skintone.

I believe the Illamasqua sale at Myer continues until 15th July so if you're after anything from the brand now is the time to buy it.

Have you tried any of the Illamasqua cream blushes yet?

NARS Ramatuelle Eyeshadow (Guest Review)

Today's guest review of NARS Ramatuelle eyeshadow trio is by Casey from Beauty101 blog who is a total beauty addict. You can find Casey on her blog and on Twitter. Thank you Casey, over to you!

"My name is Casey, I'm 26 years old, and I've been in the beauty industry as a hairstylist and makeup artist for the last 7 years. I started my blog, Beauty 101, as a way to link up with other beauty enthusiasts while sharing my current obsessions with the world. 

"Total Beauty Addict" doesn't even begin to describe me."


I don’t know if it’s just me, but the minute I hear that something is limited edition I feel like I absolutely MUST have it and I will do almost anything to find it! Am I the only one with these strange shopping obsessions? I hope not...

When NARS released the preview for their Summer 2012 collection the first thing I noticed was Ramatuelle, an eyeshadow trio that contains what NARS describes to be an icy silver, golden peach, and matte apricot . This trio just screams “summer” to me and the minute I saw it I knew that it would eventually be mine.

NARS Ramatuelle review
NARS Ramatuelle eyeshadow trio

I was finally able to get my hands on this trio last weekend and let me say, it was worth the wait! The quality of the shadows don’t disappoint and they are all up to par with other NARS products in the sense that they are extremely pigmented, easy to blend, and smooth to the touch.

NARS Ramatuelle review

The cool tones of the silver and peach look great on lighter skin tones while women of color will appreciate the “pop” that the lighter shades give when paired against their skin. Women with blue eyes will especially look fabulous when wearing Ramatuelle since the apricot and gold shades will provide a nice contrast to the eye.

Swatches of NARS Ramatuelle in various lights
Swatches of NARS Ramatuelle in various lighting conditions

When paired with an eyeshadow primer I notice that I can easily get 10 hours of wear with Ramatuelle and I have never noticed any creasing while wearing this product. To be fair, I’ve not gone longer than 10 hours so I can’t comment on the extreme longevity this product may give, although today I noticed that when I got home from work that my eyeshadow looked just as fresh as it did 10 hours earlier.

Ramatuelle retails for $45USD and can be purchased anywhere that NARS products are sold or on the NARS website (while supplies last). I would definitely suggest picking up this trio because the colors are gorgeous and the quality is second to none. I think that Ramatuelle would be a treasured part of anyone’s makeup collection for years to come and that it is an absolute “must buy!”


Thank you for your in-depth review of the NARS Ramatuelle (l/e) eyeshadow trio Casey! For my Australian readers, you can get NARS from Mecca Cosmetica where the trios are sold for around $72AUD.

Hauling - lipsticks, lipsticks, lipsticks... and a bit more

I haven't done much shopping at all lately, because a. being 37 weeks pregnant I'm a bit limited in what I can buy, and b. I've bought more than enough stuff for the baby already and I'm trying to slow down now until he's actually here.

But when the urge to shop just gets too much what's a girl to do? Buy makeup and accessories of course! Here's what I've bought this week, mainly from online stores and they all arrived at the same time.

I'll do proper posts on these when I get the chance to try them out but in the meantime here is a closer look at the haul.

Chanel Illusion D'Ombre in Illusoire 
chanel illusion d'ombre illusoire

After I bought my first Illusion D'Ombre from a blog sale I knew it was only a matter of time before I got another one. Illusoire caught my eye with its silvery purple sheen. I bought it off straweberry net where it was slightly cheaper than at the shops.


Left to right
  • Sleek Matte Lipstick in Amped - this gorgeous purply fuschia shade is perfect for brightening up a winter day.
  • Wet n Wild megashield lip colour in It's a Girl - this was actually included as a freebie with my online order from Crush Cosmetics.
  • Elizabeth Arden lipstick in Coral Vibrations - a perfect coral shade which was 50% off at Myer, do you think I could pass it up? No. 
  • Wet n Wild megalast lip colours in Don't Blink Pink and Mauve Outta Here - I've always wanted to try these budget lippies so when I saw that they were stocked at Crush Cosmetics I decided to give those two shades a go. Can't wait to try them.


This was 50% off at Colette so it came to around $7.00 I think. And I just couldn't resist the red and gold combination which will look great with a plain white top or dress. I can't wait to wear it.

I bought the Chanel at Strawberry Net, the Elizabeth Arden from Myer, the Wet n Wild and Sleek lippies from Crush Cosmetics, and the necklace from Colette Accessories. None of them are affiliate links.

Let me know if you'd like any particular product reviewed and swatched first.

Have you been hauling much lately?

June 13, 2012


As a beauty blogger I'm always trying new make up products and with so many new things released all the time I get swayed with the newbies and rarely repurchase my old ones when they run out...

But there are a few products that I repurchase without even thinking about it. And here they are (all links are to previous posts):
Clockwise from top left: MAC MSFN, Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse, Rimmel Lipstick in Pink Blush, Ausralis Voluptulash Mascara, Rimmel Eyebrow Pencil in Black/Brown

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural: This is great at setting my foundation as it never gives a flat powdery look, yet it have enough pigmentation to provide extra coverage where needed.

Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse foundation: For a long time this was my HG foundation, and I still use it quite a lot. Just lately with my skin feeling dryer than normal I've switched to the creamier MAC Studio Sculpt but come warmer weather I'll switch back to this.

Rimmel Pink Blush lipstick: This is one of my fave-don't-need-to-think-about-it lippies. When it ran out, I didn't even have to think twice about repurchasing it.

Australis Voluptulash  mascara in Blackest Black: I received one as a PR sample a while back and loved it so much that when it ran out I replaced it straight away. It has a comb-like wand which is good at separating lashes and giving length. If I need added volume I usually layer it with a volumizing mascara like CG Lashblast.

Rimmel Eyebrow pencil in Black/Brown: I normally fill in my brows with this pencil then go over it with a medium/dark brown eyeshadow to make it look natural. I find it's easier filling in the bald patches with this pencil, as it's not too creamy and doesn't run, than it is with a brow powder. 

Honourable mentions
These are products that I haven't yet repurchased because they haven't yet ran out, but rest assured as soon as they run out I'll be buying them again.
Clockwise from bottom left: Illamasqua blushes in Tremble & Lover, Benefit Hoola Bronzer, Too Faced Naked Eye and Natural Eye Palettes, MAC Studio Sculpt Foundation, MAC lipstick in Impassioned

Illamasqua blushes in Lover and Tremble: My love for Illamasqua blushes is no secret, and these two colours are just perfect. Lover is an apricot peach, so it's great with a tan. Tremble is peachy pink, so it looks good in colder months with paler skintones.

Benefit Hoola bronzer: I've hit pan on my Hoola already, so I reckon a few more months and I'll need to buy a new one. I use it pretty much every day to contour my face and give me the cheekbones I was not born with.

Too Faced Naked Eye and Natural Eye palettes: One has cool tones, the other one warm tones. Both are perfect. I love that the size of the palettes makes it handy for travel, and except for a few dodgy shades most are well pigmented and long lasting.

MAC Studio Sculpt Foundation: I bought this when my skin went really really dry. The creamy gel-like formula hides flakiness and provides medium to full coverage. During warmer weather this would feel a bit too heavy, which is when I'll switch back to the Maybelline Dream Liquid foundation.

MAC Impassioned Lipstick: This is my all time favourite lipstick ever. I've blogged about it many times before. It's one of those lippies that instantly brightens up the look and makes me look more put together than I am. I'm surprised I haven't bought back-ups already!

Are there any makeup products that you repurchase or are you happy to discard the old and try the new kids on the block?

French Affair by Essie

Despite the cold weather in Australia (yes my dear readers, Australia is now well and truly in the middle of winter), I'm dreaming of springtime. Springtime in Paris to be exact. But since Paris is more than 10,000 miles from Sydney I can get my French cravings with French Affair by Essie.

Essie French Affair nailpolish

French Affair is a cool toned baby pink that's neutral enough to be worn with most outfits without clashing. I found the formula of this colour much runnier than all my other Essies, and 3 coats was required to get opaque coverage. On the plus side I've got them on 4th day in a row, without any top coat, and there's no chip in sight.

Essie French Affair nail polish

And if you're thinking I'm obsessed with Essie at the moment, you'd be right, since all my recent nail posts have featured Essie. That's because not only do I love the colours and formula, the fact that Essie is free from Formaldehyde, Toluene and DBP means I can put my pregnant mind at ease that I'm not doing harm with any nasty chemicals.

My super simple skincare routine

After I posted this FOTD I received quite a few enquiries about my skincare routine as my skin looked smooth. Firstly thank you! My skin isn't that smooth and makeup goes a long way in hiding any imperfections, and secondly my skincare routine is very very simple and definitely not expensive.

A bit about my skin 
When I was younger I had quite bad acne so around the age of 20 a dermatologist put me on Roaccuatane medication. For 6 months I put up with the side effects which included extremely dry & sensitive skin, dry sore eyes and constantly chapped lips. But afterwards my acne cleared and never returned except for the occasional breakout around that time of month.

My skin is usually normal to dry, although at the beginning of my pregnancy it became extremely dry and flaky. I still have flaky patches around my nose and forehead area which I'll need to be careful to hydrate, especially with the colder weather ahead of us here in Australia. I've got some moles and spots on my face and have also started developing crows feet around my eyes, but overall I'm happy with my skin.

So here are the products that I use in my skincare routine... nothing more, nothing less. I also don't get facials (the one time I did get one I reacted horribly) and my philosophy when it comes to skincare is less is definitely more.

Cleanse and makeup removal

Dermaveen Soap Free wash - $15 for a 500ml tub at pharmacies
I started using this when I went on Roaccutane as it's a gentle cleanser that doesn't strip skin of natural oils. It removes my makeup without any problems, and most importantly it doesn't leave my skin feeling tight after washing. It's the only product I have been using to cleanse my skin since I was about 20. The only time I use anything different is if I'm feeling lazy and just use a makeup remover wipe (by Simple) to cleanse at night.


Day: Moo Goo Full Cream moisturiser for fussy skin - $19.95 for 75ml at health food shops
I discovered this moisturiser late last year and have been using it religiously every morning since then. It's quite lightweight, has a lovely milk and honey smell, does not cause any breakouts and it's very budget friendly. Plus I love its tongue in cheek name. Prior to using this I was using QV Daytime Moisturiser ($15) but found it too heavy for my skin.

Night: Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate $59 for 30ml at Kiehl's counters
I won this in a competition and it's the only thing I use at night. Two drops is all that's needed to cover my face, and despite being a serum it soaks into my skin very quickly and doesn't leave it looking and feeling oily. Plus I love the calming scent of Lavender and Evening Primrose Oils. Prior to using this I'd been using either QV Nighttime Moisturiser ($15) or Bio Oil ($15) at nighttime.


I either make my own or use St Ives Moisturising Olive scrub ($10 from Priceline) as it feels very gentle on my dry skin. I use it once, maybe twice a week. Most people I know go for the St Ives Apricot scrub, but I find the Olive scrub much more friendly on my dry skin.

I also occasionally make my own face masks out of honey and oats, but that's about it. 

But wait... what's this?
And here's a sneak peek at another product I've just started using... more on that after I've used it for a few weeks so I can give you my informed opinion. All I will say now is it costs less than $10 and I look forward to using it each morning.

FOUND! - the perfect bubble necklace to dress up a 35wk baby bump!

A few weeks ago I posted about my favourite necklace which I'd bought from Colette Accessories and was after ones in different colours.

Natalie from The Mustard Jumper mentioned that it's a copy of the J Crew Bubble necklace so after a bit of searching on ebay I picked this up in aqua green for around $15! Love it! It instantly dresses up any outfit, and would look perfect over a summery strapless white dress. If you want something like it as well just do a quick search on ebay for J Crew Bubble, you'll get a tonne of them come up. They've apparently been around forever but clearly I've been living under a rock!

Now I think I'll order one in yellow and in black. Obsessed? Moi?

Oh and here's my bump at 35 weeks! Getting huge now. My Portmans striped tee is stretched to its limits, and we won't even talk about my white blazer which is bursting at the seams! It seems like I've been pregnant forever, but not long to go now. Scaryyyy...

Cheap dupes for YSL Frivolous Pink Lipstick

I'm a huge fan of the YSL Rouge Volupte Lipsticks. The luxe packaging, the creamy formula, the gorgeous colours... what's not to love? Well, the price actually. Even though you can usually find them a bit cheaper online, in Australian department stores they're sold for $55aud each. That's way more than I feel comfortable paying for a lipstick.

Today I'd like to show you 2 very cheap dupes that I found for YSL Rouge Volupte #19 Frivolous Pink (I picked up Rouge Volupte at strawberry.net) .

Cheap Dupes for YSL #19 Frivolous Pink

Cheap Dupe #1: Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in "Pink Blush"
This is actually one of my favourite lipsticks and the only lipstick that I've actually re-purchased when it run out. It's not as creamy as the YSL lippy, but it does last longer on my lips. And I love the sweet candy scent that lingers on my lips. Price? Less than $10aud! 

Cheap Dupe #2: BYS Lipstick in "Sassy Salmon"
Gorgeous colour, creamy formula and lasts longer on my lips than the YSL one. The only thing I don't like about it is the cheap packaging. Come on BYS, when are you going to improve your packaging? There are plenty of other budget brands out there that don't look as cheap as BYS's packaging looks. And the price of this lippy? Less than $5aud!

While in the tube they all look slightly different, you'll notice from the swatches below how identical they are. And please note that these are dupes purely in colour, and not in quality, packaging, or longevity.

Yep, you'd have to agree that swatched it's quite hard to tell them apart! At these bargain prices I know when my YSL runs out I won't run to replace it as I can get ones at a tenth of the price.

Do you know any good cheap dupes for expensive lipsticks?
