NARSissist Limited Edition Unfiltered I Cheek Palette Review + Swatches!

Hello beauties,

Boy, do I have a treat in store for you! Did you know that NARS have two new limited edition cheek palettes called the NARSissist Unfiltered I and II? I've always loved the NARS blushes and wanted to expand on my collection, but I prefer doing it in a palette because it's so much more convenient than filling up my blush drawer with singles. I picked up the NARSissist Unfiltered 1 palette last year from Sephora US, and a friend of a friend kindly mailed it to me in January.

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen it popping up on my feed quite a bit, but I wanted to wait to share my review until today, because it launches at MECCA today!!! Isn't it gorgeous?!

Before I go any further, I'll just make a quick apology for the square format of the photos, I accidentally irretrievably deleted all the photos I took for this blog save the swatch photo, so I had no choice but to use the square ones I took for Instagram.

Rimmel London The Only 1 Matte Review + Swatches!

Hello lovelies,

There's a new matte in town, have you heard? The Rimmel London The Only 1 Matte lipsticks finally launched here in Australia this month, and I've been blown away by how phenomenal they are! The original The Only 1 lipstick range was pretty awesome, but in my humble opinion, these are so much better. That could be because I'm a tad bit obsessed with matte lipsticks at the moment, but these truly are just a little bit special.

The brand has this to say about the lipsticks - "The perfect balance of high impact matte colour, moisture, all day comfort and staying power".

Let's take a closer look and see how it delivers, shall we?

Rimmel London | The Only 1 Matte Lipsticks.
As always, let's talk packaging. These are packaged in a slimline, distinctive red tube which is easy to identify in any makeup bag or handbag. The bullet is slanted, which makes getting a precise application a cinch, as it glides easily around the contours of your lips.

The lipsticks also have a distinctive floral scent which is pretty true to all the Rimmel lipsticks. I don't mind it too much (though I wouldn't say it smelled as good as my Kylie or Huda Beauty lipsticks) and it's not discernable once on the lips, but it's something that people with sensitive olfactory senses might want to note.

Lush Cosmetics - Fall in Lush Valentine's Day 2017 Collection!

Hi lovelies!

Happy New Year! Yes, it does seem a bit late wishing you all Happy New Year in February (and how did we get here, anyway? It seems like it was just New Year's Day a couple of days ago), but seeing as I haven't blogged in a while, better late than never, right? I think my blogger resolution will be to blog at least once a week. I can't imagine how I used to work full time and get 2-3 posts out a week, when it's such a struggle now. Potentially a sign of getting *cough*older*cough? So if you've stuck with me this long, I really want to say a heartfelt thank you, because I value each and every one of you deeply. Also, if you'd like to hear more from me than on a weekly basis, do follow me on Instagram because I'm usually on there at least once a day and I'm super friendly, so come say hi!

Anyhow, I'm back with a bang because I have some beautiful, limited edition goodies from the Lush Valentine's Day Collection to share with you! In case it's slipped your radar, Valentine's Day is in 7 days, but luckily, Lush are here with lots of great gift ideas for your significant other (or it's fine if you want to just keep it for yourself). Isn't this a perfectly pink offering?
