Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Volume 3 Review and Swatches

I finally caved. The last two holiday seasons I told myself I didn't need the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edits. I listened to myself when I said I already owned a full size of a shade, or that I wouldn't get use out of every pan. And I was right. I didn't need Volume One or Two. But both years I found myself wishing I had picked them up anyway (especially Volume One). It's not often that I regret not picking up a product, so I was definitely keeping an eye out for their 2017 Holiday release.

The Ambient Lighting Edit Volume Three contains three existing and three new shades in a beautiful rose gold compact. You get two Ambient Lighting Powders, an Ambient Strobe Lighting Powder, two Ambient Lighting Blushes and an Ambient Lighting Bronzer. There is good variety within this palette, but I definitely think that it is best suited for fair-tan skin. I would love to see them release one with deeper shades because these are definitely not universal.

October Favourites

So October has come to an end and it's been quite a busy month for me. I settled into my new house, joined a new gym and binge watched Stranger Things 2. Thanks to Sephora having a 20% off sale, I did a lot more makeup shopping than I usually do, so I was kept busy by trying new products.

Luckily for me, I've ended up loving pretty much everything I've tried, even though most purchases were on the impulsive side of things. A few not-so-recent loves also made their way in to my most used and enjoyed products this month.

My Favourite Nude Lipsticks

Is there anything better than finding your perfect nude lipstick? A shade you can throw on with any look, day or night and just know it will look good? Not for this girl. Does that make me a little boring? Maybe. Basic? Probably. I spent a good half hour sitting with my lipsticks, narrowing down the list to my absolute favourite nudes. From sheer to opaque. Glossy to matte. These are the lipsticks that end up in my handbag for weeks at a time.

Huda Beauty Desert Dusk Eyeshadow Palette Review

Hello! Long time no blog. Apologies for the absence, but I moved house and spent a while without wifi. As a millennial baby I'm lucky to have had internet in my house since I could say the word internet, so it was a very different few weeks for me! Don't worry though, I didn't have to sacrifice my beloved avocado on toast (how topical of me).

I thought I'd best return with something good, and what's better than a new eyeshadow palette? While in the process of moving I made a little visit to Sephora and picked up the new Huda Beauty Desert Dusk eyeshadow palette. I had been curious about it in the lead up to it's release and after seeing it in person I was a goner.

The 5 Best Spring Blushes


Winter is finally over! Even though here in Melbourne the weather hasn't really changed yet, I'm still so happy that it will be warming up soon! Even though I've been hit with the cold from hell this week, I wanted to share my favourite blushes for this time of year with you. Just because I'm not wearing makeup right now doesn't mean I'm going to stop talking about it all day long.
