Current ins and outs


♥ Being on holidays - uni goes back next week but at the moment i am enjoying the last week of my break

♥ MAC dainty blush - this is a recet purchase and i am loving it, post to follow when i find my camera

♥ Lucas paw paw ointment - where would i be without this. My lips love it! I will have to dedicate a post to this little beauty

♥ ebay - this one speaks for itself!

♥ Finding fab bargains - I've managed score myself a few bargains lately - i got 2 pairs of shoes one for $11 and one for $24, I also got 2 jackets and jeans all at amazing prices - might have to do a clothes post soon?!


♥ The blogger event - I am soooo excited about the blogger event for Australian beauty bloggers that i have been invited to in Sydney on the weekend.


♥  My crappy hair cut and colour - as you may know from one of my previous posts i got my hair done. I wanted lighter ends and a tiny bit off the ends but it looks nothing like what i asked for. She cut off heaps which had taken me ages to grow and i am going to have to dye it at home tonight. I'm so annoyed - I have zebra stripe hair arhhh

♥  Not being able to find my camera - still haven't found it i really hope it turns up before the weekend so i can take heaps of snaps

♥  The cold weather - I'm over winter.  I don't want to rack up a huge electricity bill to so i'm trying not to use my heater. I have much better things to spend money on - hello makeup! So a blanket for me it is.

L'oreal studio secrets primer

I still have not found my camera which is making me very sad :( Some i'm going to have to use some internet from the internet. So i bought the L'oreal studio secrets primer a few weeks ago and i am telling you i am loving it. 

 I have used up my Becca mineral primer and didn't want to fork out heaps for it again so this one was calling my name! I put it on the other morning and my face didn't even get that shiny. Admittedly it is winter here at the moment and my skin does not get anywhere near as oily as it does in summer but it still get quite oily around my nose and t-zone but this stuff worked its magic! It's a marshmallowy fluffy texture which goes on the skin smoothly and didn't hasn't broken me out. My foundation stays put and smooth. I love this stuff!

The downside i found to this primer is the packaging - the jar thing is annoying. Also the small amount of product and being picky the fact that it doesn't have an SPF. 

I think the real test for this primer will be summer, i'll have to remember to give an update in summer.

Prestige gloss

I read about this lipgloss on Belle Du Jour's blog and knew i had to pick one up. It's the Prestige Skin Loving Minerals Lip gloss in Soft Peach. I'm not a huge lip gloss fan but i do like a gorgeous glossy lip if the gloss is a good one.

The only other Prestige product i own is the sun baked bronzing powder which i haven't used much but will probably dig it out when the weather becomes warmer. The price for the gloss was okay at AUD$18.95. Obviously not as good as in America, i think it's only $7.99 - talk about price inflation!

It has a nice soft texture and is not too sticky! Sometimes i find MAC ones a bit sticky but they do have great colours. Anyway I find this one has a nice consistency. It doesn't stay on for ages like some stickier glosses but i personally would rather reapply than be constantly be pulling my hair off my lips. I always seem to have dry lips and i often find that glosses just make them worse but this one doesn't really dry them. I think i read somewhere that is is enriched with shea butter so big thumbs up for that.

It is a pretty sheer nudey peach and doesn't have a lot of colour which i quite like, it makes it really versatile. It does have a bit of glitter through it but not over the top. You can sort of see what i mean in the photo above. 

Overall i'm pretty impressed. I haven't paid much attention to Prestige but i think i will have to take a closer look at their range. 

Has anyone tried this gloss or other Prestige glosses?

I am getting my hair cut and coloured tomorrow woohoo. About time, it's long overdue. At the moment my hair is a fairly plain medium brown colour.  It has a bit of a natural wave and is reasonably long going past my shoulders, just so you know. 

At this stage for the colour (although my mind changes very quickly) i am leaning towards getting balayage done to have this effect. I really like the look but was curious as to your opinions. Here are some of my favourite snaps. 

(All pics from google images)

Hit me with your thoughts on this effect!
