I hope that you’re all enjoying the festive season so far. The Lipstick Bandits around the world have come together to bring you some holiday sparkles.
- Two Faced Shadow Insurance all over lid to prime.
- Rouge Bunny Rouge Abyssinian Catbird eye shadow on mobile lid (reviewed and swatched here)
- Urban Decay ‘Hustle’ eye shadow from Naked Palette to darken outer third of top lid.
- Urban Decay ‘Sin’ eye shadow from Naked Palette inner corner highlight.
- MAC Blacktrack Fluidline
- MAC Peaches powder blush
- MAC Redd lip liner
- Chanel Gabrielle Rouge Coco lipstick (apply, then blot the excess)
- MAC Dazzleglass in Get Rich Quick on top of Gabrielle on the middle of lips.
I haven’t worn Chanel Rouge Coco Gabrielle in too long- it’s the perfect true red with that gorgeous silky Rouge Coco texture. I used Get Rich Quick for the festive gold and green sparkles which I think works nicely with the old gold undertones of Abyssinian Catbird.
I gotta be honest- these lips are not exactly low maintenance. You will need to check on your teeth every 15minutes minimum, and kissing is out of the question O_o.
Check out what the other Lipstick Bandits have in store for your lips!

I think we’re somewhere around week 6 into Healthy Summer, and the last two weeks consisted of several epic fails but thankfully also some Win.
The weekend before the last one was not good for Healthy Summer. I was in Sydney for 3 days, and when I’m in Sydney I always feel the need to eat my bodyweight worth of the following…
… which is fantastic at the time, but when I’m eating those things all day long I end up so lethargic, bloated, and completely uincapable of getting anything done.
If that wasn’t bad enough, I did what I always do on the weekend- drink way too much. Not only does this mean that exercise was out of the question, but I was so incredibly tired on tuesday morning when I had to drive from Sydney to Lithgow at 7am that the only thing that could stop me from microsleeping (two cups of coffee and a red bull didn’t work) was taking up cigarettes again for the morning (TSK TSK). It took me two days after that to pull myself together. Slippery slope!
Thankfully after the naughty weekend (ok, by weekend I really mean about 5 days lol), it was business as usual.
To help get the ball rolling for the half marathon I want to do in 2012, I’ve signed up for a 10km road race in January with the Sydney Marathon Clinic. It’s very soon so I’m not expecting to get a competitive time- the goal is to have something concrete to work towards in the not too distant future, and also to get used to races (I haven’t really done a proper race since early high school. The City 2 Surf, which I didn’t really train for and barely made through alive, doesn’t count).
2 weeks ago, I decided that if I’m going to be running 4+ a week, then I had better learn how to do it properly- running is high impact and the last thing I want to do is destroy my joints and ligaments with poor technique and footwear.

After experiencing the magic that is Chanel Illusion D’Ombre Mirifique, I had to get my greedy little hands on more. I wanted to get all the Illusion D’Ombres but my sensible side talked me into getting just two (I was so close to picking up Epatant but decided it was too close a dupe of my Lancome Erika F eye shadow to justify the purchase).
My bestie was in San Fran a few weeks ago so he was kind enough to pick these up for me (thanks Ken!)
Price: 48AUD AUS rrp , 36 USD US rrp.
Availability: Chanel counters worldwide.
