I know some of you ladies have noticed my layout has been changing like a chameleon these past few months. I have been unable to make up my mind about which one actually goes with the "feel and theme" of my blog. I hope you girls can enlighten me about this layout.. I really really like it but I would love second opinions !!



Makeup Masala Mini Haul !!

Posted by jacqui at 2:31 AM 0 comments
I've been in love with makeup masala since the ladies at the EDM forum have been raving about this website !! I love how all the items there are affordable and the postage is just too good to be true !! So I've been browsing around makeup masala again hoping that toma has stocked up on e.l.f products but unfortunately the e.l.f products on makeup masala go really fast and toma has a very limited quatities so I have to wait for the next batch but I did make a purchase !!

I purchased:
2x Avon MagiX face perfector in Medium
e.l.f dramatic lash kit
e.l.f perfect slant tweezers
mellow lash kit

I am loving the magiX face perfector !!
The magiX face perfector is a primer but can also be used alone since its tinted
I love my magiX !! I've accumulated 3 since getting my first one !!

I was expecting alot more from my elf lashes but really it was just a waste of money.
firstly I couldn't open the eyelash glue and had to re-purchase that.
I also had a problem with the lashes falling out after 1 use..
you really get what you pay for with this one !

There have been lots of talks about the Super Custom Kit of everyday minerals disappearing forever on July 2nd, and since i thought well i don't think there will be another kit like the SCK again I decided to plunge into deep waters and order.. even though I'm well stocked for the next 10 years or so. Anyway I ended up purchasing one SCK and one PCK I tried to justify my massive purchase but was let down when 3 days after placing my orders everyday minerals have announced that they are not discontinuing the SCK.. so that was really bittersweet news to me. Even though I ended purchasing things I didn't necessarily need.. I did though love my purchases ! heres what i got !!

SCK:
  1. 3x Olive Medium in semi matte & matte
  2. 2x Sprung! blush (i love sprung blush !! my favourite!!)
  3. 1x Plum Dust blush
  4. Peach Color Corrector
  5. Lavender Pressed
  6. Sandcastle Pressed
  7. Summer Bronzer
  8. Buttered Tan Pressed
  9. Medium Beige Pressed
PCK:
  1. LHK ( i only have one..and needed another one for backups !)
  2. 2x Sandy Olive
  3. Apple
  4. Sprung!
  5. Summer Bronzer
The Box Of Surprises !!!
I always love getting one of these in the mail !!

I love how colorful the lids are !!
Different colors for different products !

Lavender Pressed Eye Shadows
all I can say is that its absolutely lovely !
I didn't think I could wear these colors but they really are very wearable!

Sandcastle Pressed Eyeshadows
My new favourite !! love doing smokey eyes with this !!

Summer Bronzer Pressed
absolutely lovely !! just enough shimmer and great for contouring !!

The only con I can think of for the pressed palettes is the jojoba oil smell.. though the pressed powders are now alot smoother and finer than the old one everyday minerals used to have.. the smell just doesn't do it for me. I think I am getting used to it though.. it doesn't smell as appaling as it used to when I just got it.

The Boyfriend bought me a...

Posted by jacqui at 9:23 PM 2 comments
s
Nintendo Wii !! Okay so its not much but my bf was here for the weekend since he misses our little boy and me of course !! ;] We don't get to see each other often since he works all the way up in Karratha.. and I am here in Perth so we try to see each other as much as our finances would allow ! Its frustrating sometimes and I guess its also a good thing when you don't see each other often.. you know "absence makes the heart grow fonder" but sometimes its also a bad thing like he can't see our little one grow up..etc etc. heheh sorry for being side tracked.. Anyway I love my Wii !! and i also love the person who bought it for me ;] heheh i got 6 games with it like Mario Party, Sonic & Mario tennis and lots more but can't remember from the top of my head. It is soo cool especially if you play it on a big tv.. i play it on our 154cm plasma and its AWESOME !! the graphics are extreme and it so fun to play !! Its not like the ordinary ps3 where you just park your ass and play.. the wii games are more physical and make you move around !! i love love love it !! now all i need is to buy dance dance revolution on wii and im all set !! Anyway here are some pics of my wee little one !!



he's nearly 3 now and very very cheeky and sweet !!
too bad he doesn't look anything like me.. hes a "clone" of his daddy ! :]

Mini Haul.. Bourjois Cosmetics Paris

Posted by jacqui at 3:30 AM 0 comments
my mini haul for today.. an assortment of eyeshadows and a red lipstick from bourjois paris.
i don't buy much eyeshadowss but since i've gotten a freebie shadow palette by bourjois from a purchase off priceline before.. thats when the love for bourjois began. I only own a lipstick and a 2 shadow palette that is actually by bourjois because the only thing holding me back is the price. I can't seem to justify spending $16.00 on eyeshadows i would hardly use but since they were on sale today i thought why the hell not?!

Heres what I got..
Petite Guide De Style Perfect Harmony Shadow & Contour in
  • #11 Miss Spirit
  • #12 Coquette Rosette
  • #13 Fleur Bleue..?
  • #14 Mauve & Croquer


Ambre Paupierre Eyeshadow in
  • #01 Rose Ancien
  • #70 Kaki Etonnant
  • #26 Feu D'Artifice


i will be experimenting on looks with these lovely shadows this week so will be updating soon !! and also will give these babies a review !!

Review: i.d Magic Wand Brushless Mascara

Posted by jacqui at 8:28 AM 0 comments



What They Say:
Cast a magic spell right before your eyes. With the wave of a magic wand, create the never-ending lashes you've only dreamt about. The revolutionary design of Magic Wand Brushless Mascara allows you to individually coat each lash one at a time from every imaginable angle for fuller, longer-looking lashes. It also works magic when layered over your favorite mascara for added volume. The overall effect is like wearing false eyelashes

My Verdict:

Finish: 5 out of 5.. stays on all night !! no panda eyes !!
Consistency: 5 out of 5.. ultra smooth consistency !!
Ease Of Use: 5 out of 5.. just like an ordinary mascara.
Price: 5 out of 5.. affordable !
Overall: 5 out of 5

This is my HG mascara ! I've been meaning to write a review about this little magic stick awhile back but just didn't have time. At first I was sceptical.. I mean who would've heard of a brushless mascara?? Isn't revlon/covergirl etc. always trying to come up with ways to improve their mascara brushes?! Well don't let the "brushlessness" scare you !! This mascara is absolutely magic !! It makes my lashes super thick, super long !! It really does deliver ! and best of all it is easy to apply and to remove !! I absolutely testify that you will have no panda eyes by the time your night at casino ends !! I love this mascara and best of all its mineral based so its also good for your lashes !! Apart from making you look like you have doll eyes the consistency of this mascara is very smooth.. no clumps at all.. beautiful and very light on the eyes it won't make your lashes feel "heavy" and at $32.99 (@ myers & djs) wouldn't you want to buy it too?!



I hope my before and after pics show how lovely this mascara is !

Review: Face Of Australia Tinted Moisturizer SPF 30+

Posted by jacqui at 5:46 PM 1 comments


What They Say:

Face of Australia has just introduced their revolutionary 3 in 1 foundation, moisturiser and sunscreen, perfect for the modern girl and foundation minimalist.

This ultra light foundation combines moisturiser with broad spectrum SPF 30 to keep skin looking fresh and ultimately protected.


My Verdict:

Finish: 5 out of 5.. matte shine free finish
Consistency: 5 out of 5.. very smooth consistency and not sticky
Ease Of Use: 5 out of 5.. very easy to use !
Price: 5 out of 5.. cheap but great quality !
Overall: 5 out of 5

I've always been skeptical about cheap makeup, but this tinted moisturizer from FOA is just marvelous !! Honestly speaking it rivals my $105 Clarins Tinted Restorative !! I love the smell of this stuff and the spf is so high you don't need to apply sunscreen before hand ! I especially love the price, it is $14.95 but as always I managed to score a bargain since i purchased it on sale !! The coverage is very sheer and lightweight, great for all the ladies out there who have clear skin and just needs to cover redness or evening out the skin tone. Applying the moisturizer is also very easy as the product is very smooth. I have combination skin with an oily T-zone and I didn't get any shine even hours after application. Overall I think I have founda another product I can't see myself without !
