Limited Edition Tarte Kiss & Belle LipSurgence Lip Set Review + Swatches.

Hi lovelies!

Remember how I picked up the limited edition Tarte Kiss & Belle LipSurgence set in Part 1 of my birthday haul? Here are my thoughts on this gorgeous little gift set, just in time for the Friends & Family sale over on the Tarte website (US-Based, so you might need to use a parcel forwarding company if you're outside of the US), but more on that later. Isn't the box gorgeous? I admit that I'm having a hard time throwing it out.

This set contains:

4 deluxe LipSurgence lip tints in Dreamy (raspberry), Alluring (nude mauve), Innocent (beige nude) and Dainty (pale pink).
2 deluxe LipSurgence matte lip tints in Eternal (pink nude) and Fancy (plum berry).
2 deluxe LipSurgence lipglosses in Kiss (light pink) and Belle (raspberry).

For some reason, the Alluring LipSurgence in my set has the word matte on it, though it's definitely not a matte lip colour, as you'll see from the swatches later.

I Love Nail Polish - Bishop (H).

Hi lovelies!

Wow, it has been ages since my last polish post, which is crazy because I've always got polish on! Where has the time gone, this year has simply flown by!

I wanted to share a simple manicure with you, and that's a gorgeous duochrome polish from I Love Nail Polish, one of my favourite indie polish stores. Barbara, the owner of ILNP, is based in the States, so shipping can be a little on the expensive side, but her polishes are truly gorgeous and completely worth it. I've got about twenty of her polishes, I think, and almost all are holographics.

Bishop (H) is the holographic version of an earlier polish (Bishop) that she released. Bishop (H) is a pale olive green shade that tends towards gold with the right lighting. These polishes don't require a base polish to truly pop, and you can also see tiny holographic particles suspended in the polish even when it's dry.

Laura Mercier Mini Caviar Stick Eye Colour Collection Review & Swatches!

Hi lovelies!

I've got a product review to share today on a Christmas set I picked up in part 1 of my birthday haul. I love cream shadows and shadow pencils as they make great eye makeup bases, and are also a great option when you're pressed for time as you just need a swipe across your lids and you're ready to go. All of these are why I couldn't resist getting the Laura Mercier mini caviar stick eye colour collection.

 Laura Mercier mini caviar stick eye colour collection.

This collection includes six cream eyeshadow pencils in Khaki (dirty green), Moonlight (pewter), Cocoa (chocolate brown), Amethyst (mauve brown), Copper (metallic bronze) and Rosegold (dusky pink gold). Moonlight, Amethst, Copper and Rosegold are quite metallic and shimmery, while Khaki and Cocoa are almost matte in appearance, with just a slight amount of sheen. Each cream shadow is packaged in a handy twist up crayon, which eliminates the need for sharpening.

Birthday Haul 2014 Part 1 - Sephora Malaysia and Laura Mercier.

Hi lovelies!

My birthday was a couple of weeks ago, which just happened to coincide with a Sephora Malaysia 20% off sale. As a result, I decided to pop in and stock up on some staples, as well as spend a little (okay, most) of my birthday money. It worked pretty well as I was pleasantly surprised to see some of the Christmas sets available at Sephora Malaysia, and as I could actually swatch the products, it made it a lot easier to decide if I should purchase or not. Let's take a look at what I purchased, shall we?

First up, here's everything that I purchased in one flatlay photo!

Birthday Haul Part 1 - Sephora Malaysia and Laura Mercier.

Top row: Laura Mercier Mini Caviar Stick Eye Colour Collection and Ciate London Haute House Collection (Rich Ink Formula).

Hourglass Limited Edition Ambient Blush Wardrobe Review + Swatches.

Hi lovelies!

Remember all the hype about the Hourglass Ambient Powder Wardrobe? Hourglass have done it again by creating a limited edition Ambient Blush Wardrobe! If you're a beauty fanatic, chances are you'd have seen this baby popping up everywhere on social media, as the hype has been phenomenal! As with the Powder Wardrobe, you get two shades from their regular range (Luminous Flush and Mood Exposure), as well as a limited edition shade (Incandescent Electra) that's exclusive to this palette. I'd always wanted to try the Ambient blushes, so I really jumped at the chance to pick up a palette with three shades included. While it's true that the pans in palettes are smaller than the full sized ones, it's seldom that I hit pan on a full sized product so I'm always in favour of palettes as you get more shades to add to your collection.
