NARS Surabaya and Chanel Revelation Blush Creme FOTD_


I seem to be having an ongoing love affair with warm eyeshadows this year- since getting my hands on the  Charlotte Tilbury The Dolce Vita eyeshadow quad, and the NARS Surabaya Eyeshadow duo, I feel like wearing nothing else but variations on reddish burgundy.

Makeup breakdown:


- Too Faced shadow Insurance to prime.

-  Matte camel shade from Tom Ford Cocoa Mirage Quad applied all over the top lid with a fluffy brush.

- Becca Eye Tint in Gilt applied to the inner 2/3 of the upper lid, stopping before the crease.

-  Yellow toned copper shade from NARS Surabaya Duo (left side) packed on to the inner 1/2 of the upper lid, and blended under inner 1/2 of the bottom lashline.

- Burgundy bronze shade from the right side of Surabaya applied heavily to the outer V, taking colour further out towards the temple,  and lightly blended in crease.

- Same burgundy bronze blended under bottom lashline, concentrating colour on the outer 1/2 of bottom lid and connecting to the colour on the top lid.

- Bobbi Brown Espresso Ink Gel Eyeliner to line upper and lower lashline and waterlines.

Chanel Revelation Le Blush Creme de Chanel Review

Chanel Revelation Le Blush Creme Review


Chanel Revelation Le Blush Creme de Chanel is a medium warm petal pink when swatched, but appears a little cooler and paler on my cheeks against my skin tone. I’ve swatched Revelation below, next to Le Blush Creme in Destiny, which is a golden peach matte. It is creamy in the pan, and turns to powder when blended on skin- with a glowy delicate matte finish. Layering to build up pigmenat

Lasting power before noticable fading is about the 2-3hr mark, not quite a good as Destiny but better than most cream blushes on my skin.

I’m a big fan of the Blush Creme de Chanel, and would purchase all of them if I didn’t have that pesky mortgage.

Jurlique Daily Moisture Balancing Serum, Jurlique Advanced Eye Serum review

Jurlique Rose Moisture Plus Daily Moisture Balancing Serum

Jurlique Rose Plus Daily Moisture Balancing Serum Review


I have been trying a few Jurlique serums in the past month, and my favourites are their lovely Daily Moisture Balancing Serum and their Advanced Eye Serum.

The Jurlique Rose Moisture Plus has been fantastic for my parched skin during winter. I use it after cleansing, and before applying my moisturiser- the humectant (water retaining) properties of this serum gives the skin a hydration boost and seems to make subsequent skin care products sink into my skin better.It also incorporates lovely botanical extracts like rose hip oil, hibiscus extract, camellia leaf extract, and green tea extract. My skin feels more plump and happy when I’ve used this consistantly underneath my usual skin care.

It is light in texture and absorbs pretty fast, although there is a slight residual tackiness (from the glycerin), that will disappear when you add the moisturiser on top. I use a pea sized amount- morning and night.

EVO The Great Hydrator Moisture Mask: Review

EVO The Great Hydrator Moisture Mask: Review


EVO is an  Australian salon exclusive line that I discovered last year while I was staying at the wonderful De Russie Suites in Orange, NSW. They had mini bottles of EVO  ‘The Therapist’ shampoo, conditioner, and ‘Soap Dodger’ body wash- I was immediately hooked on ‘The Therapist’ conditioner.

I loved their humorous descriptions and names on their products, their no-fuss but uber cool packaging design, and the fact that Evo products are formulated without sulphates, parabens, dea, tea, and propylene glycol.

I was given the opportunity to try their Great Hydrator Moisture Mask, which is a treatment mask for dry, damaged hair. I have been using this about twice a week for the past 2 months- applying it semi-towel dried hair after shampooing, and leaving it in for 3-5 minutes before rinsing off. Incredible stuff! My hair feels deeply hydrated, and looks healthier after using this- almost like turning back the clock to a time before I bleached the sh*t out of it. Definitely something that I repurchase and that I would recommend for hair that needs some resuscitation.
