Swatch Fest: NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Vault

Hey guys!

Last Sunday, I took a 10 minute break from work to run up to Target to purchase the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Vault for 40% off. When I first started this blog, I was a big fan of the Soft Matte Lip Creams and I wore them almost every day. They eventually dried out and I had to remove them from my collection, I never repurchased any shades but I’ve always been fond of them. When NYX released this vault of 36 mini Soft Matte Lip Creams, I knew I wanted it because they had a lot of colours that hadn’t been released in Australia that I’d been wanting to try, plus they were mini so I actually have a chance of finishing them before they dry out. Today I just wanted to do a swatch post and minor commentary. I hope that you enjoy!

Halloween Week: Sally for Nightmare Before Christmas Anniversary

Hey ghouls!

Today is the 23rd anniversary of the Nightmare Before Christmas, a movie that I love very dearly, and I really wanted to celebrate by including it in my 100 Days of Makeup challenge and this Halloween Week! I debated which character I wanted to recreate but it became very clear very quickly that my best and only real option was Sally. I love Sally, I think she’s gorgeous and a very sweet and cunning character. I hope that you enjoy the look!

Halloween Week: Matchmaker from Mulan

Hey ghouls!

Today’s look for Halloween Week is the glorious and gorgeous Matchmaker from Disney’s Mulan. I wanted to do a really fun look among the more serious and creepy Halloween looks that I wanted to create this year. I did this look months back so that I’d be able to have all of these Halloween looks up in the last week before handing in my thesis and I’m super glad that I did it early because I’m glad to have been able to bring this look to you! So I hope that you enjoy this look and maybe consider it for this year’s Halloween parties!

Disappointing Products!

Hey guys!

With all of the money I spend trying new products, I’m bound to not love them all and feel a bit of buyers remorse. I’m quite careful for the most part but there are quite a few products that I buy that don’t quite live up to expectations so I thought I’d write a little post about it. If these products work for you, let me know what I might be doing wrong. None of these products are necessarily bad products, and if they work for you, please know that I mean no offence. I hope that you enjoy the post!

September Wishlist

Hey guys!

Today, I wanted to talk about a few things that I’ve been really lusting after over the past few weeks. There’ve been a tonne of new releases from brands or holiday teases but I’m not really feeling anything I’ve seen just yet. However, there were a couple of products that have either launched recently or have been revealed that I really wanted to share with you all!
