My Blushes: Swatches and Product Photos


Hey ladies,

Thought I would swatch my modest blush collection for you guys. I can’t seem to find my BECCA Beach Tint in Peach anywhere but I’m sure it will turn up sooner or later.

FOTD featuring NARS Ondine eye shadow

Hello folks!

Hope you are all having a lovely weekend so far.

I decided to dig my NARS Ondine eye shadow from the bottom of my drawer (I seriously need to come up with some kind of makeup storage solution, things are getting out of hand). Clare’s FOTD post inspired me to resurrect it from eye shadow purgatory, and give it some much deserved love.

NYE FOTD with Nars Heat Wave

Happy first day of 2011!

My End of Decade Giveaway ended last night. Thanks to everyone who participated, and I loved all the comments about your favourite moments. Winner will be announced on this blog on the 3rd of January so keep your eyes peeled.

Last night we had a low key NYE party at Martin’s apartment (which had a view of the fireworks). Before we left I managed to snap some FOTD pictures, so here they are….

NYE face of the day with NARS Heatwave lipstick
It ended up a little bit pin-up girl, which I didn’t mind.
Eyes:
-UDPP
-MAC Copperplate all over lid to crease. Swatches here
-MAC Mauvement pigment on top of copperplate stopping just before crease. swatches and review here
-MAC Mystery eyeshadow to darken outer 3rd.
Cheeks:
-MAC Blushbaby blush
Lips:
-NARS Heat Wave lipstick. Swatches and product photos here
I forgot to bring any red lip liners to Sydney but Heatwave held up all night without feathering. I’m always amazed at the lasting power of this lipstick. My lips were still stained this morning from it (yes, I did shower haha)
