Hi guys, gals, and non-binary pals!
Models Own recently launched in Priceline and since then, I’ve been looking for an excuse to pick up more makeup that I definitely don’t need but desperately want. Then, like a sign from the heavens, Priceline dropped a 50% off cosmetics sale and I felt that it was definitely my time to purchase one of the palettes that I’d been after, the Supernatural palette! The deeper, more mysterious shades really attracted me and the formula of the shadows seemed really nice so I just had to pick it up! Today, I’m going to be sharing my thoughts and feelings on the palette, as well as some of the looks that I’ve created with it!
Another month has passed us by and another monthly favourites has arrived! This month really dragged for me but a lot of good things happened and I had a lot of time to think about my favourites, so for once I really have stuff to talk about haha. I hope that you enjoy!
I made a Makeup Geek order on Black Friday and after many angry emails to Australia Post, I came to accept that my order had been lost in the post and I got in contact with Makeup Geek to resolve it. Makeup Geek’s customer service, as always, is perfection and they sent out a replacement of my order and it arrived this week so I really wanted to share what I received and how they swatched! I hope that you enjoy the post as much as I enjoyed swatching and playing with my new pretty things!
I am so excited to talk to you about some of the new Makeup Geek shadows I got in my last order. This order was placed nearly a month ago and I’ve been patiently waiting for it to arrive over the Christmas period haha. I got some shadows that I’d been needing for a while and some that, like in a previous Makeup Geek order, are shadows similar to another palette that I wanted to order but didn’t. I hope that you enjoy the post and maybe it might help you with a future Makeup Geek order.
Since crying over MAC’s Cinderella release, I got to do some much needed retail therapy. I don’t actually like shopping online very much because I like to have things on the day of purchase or the next day. I’m super impatient haha. But I thought that while I wait, I’d share what I’m looking forward to over the next 2 or so weeks 🙂
Makeup Geek Shadows
I’ve been following Makeup Geek for a while and I know that they have a really big following online. I love Marlena and I think she promotes her products in a way that lets you know that she really cares for the brand. I chose these shadows because I wanted to make a more cost effective palette that looked a lot like the MAC Cinderella Stroke of Midnight palette. You get almost double the product in each shadow for half the price of the shadows. I am well aware that most of this palette is permanent shadows but in Australia, MAC shadows retail for $33AUD and I definitely wouldn’t pay that much for a shadow and I know that Makeup Geek have a good reputation and pretty colours. I’d been debating buying from here for a while so this was the perfect opportunity.
I didn’t buy a z palette to put them in because I was going to make my own! The colours that I picked up were Shimma Shimma, Ice Queen, Preppy, Unexpected, Mesmerized and Drama Queen. I’m getting email updates on the tracking because I’m so excited to use these!
MAC x Cinderella Royal Ball
This product has been a personal victory for me. I really hunted it down after missing out on it, as explained in this post. I got it for almost the same price as the Australian RRP + shipping so I am super happy about that. This is also something that I have email updates for because I am praying for its safe arrival. I honestly cannot wait for this to arrive.
Yugioh – Melodious Deck
As some of you may know, I play Yugioh with my friends and as this is non makeup related, I’m going to keep this super short and sweet. I love music and the card names are based around musical puns. One of my other decks is based around dessert puns. But I just bought the base cards that I needed for this deck because they’re getting some new cards released to make them awesome so the price of the cards will definitely grow in the next few months and I had had my eye on them for a while so I thought it was about time I bought them!
I thought I’d do this kind of post every now and then so that if you guys are interested in any products, you could comment asking me to do a review for anything that I’m waiting on! I tend to already have an idea of things I’d like to review but this way its more personal and I would love to be able to talk to you guys more 🙂
