Let's Change It Up a Bit..

Once upon a time, a youthful creature of adventure and change (definitely not that eloquent), I've now regressed to an old sod who can't be bothered most days to experiment, change, nor think beyond what is necessary for the upcoming exam. Part of it has to do with the busy lifestyle, but in the past week of exam studying, I've had more time at home to get ready whenever I was going out. During all this, I've also had various circumstances bestow me with lovely new goodies! The combination has stirred a bit of a change in the products I reach for.. :)


1. It's the beloved Urban Decay Naked Palette, yes! I'm currently on a mission to find my perfect day-time smokey eye, and have been traipsing through a bunch of old TiffanyD and Hollyannaeree videos for inspiration - wish me luck!

2. MAC So Ceylon - an acquisition from my MSF phase a year ago! I wore this on my cheeks yesterday for a lovely bronze glow. Adore.

3. You may have heard of my skin's chameleon-like tendencies, which in combination with my lazy tanning schedule, makes me purchase way too many foundations - all in different shades. NARS Sheer Glow in Barcelona is a perfect shade for me right now, combined with my favourite finish - natural.

4. Clarins Hydra-Matte Lotion was a bit of an impulse splurge whilst strolling around Debenham's to spend my beauty points. However, with none of my billions of moisturizers really suiting me and with a kind sales assistant talking me through my skin and what would work for me, in it fell into my hands. My first impressions? WOW.

5. Yep, my old friend is back! The Rimmel Sunshimmer Bronzer in Medium Matte is my summer contour, and with my winter contour used up (yay!), it was time to dig this baby out. Such a lovely natural sheen and a perfect neutral tone, despite it almost being used up, it will leave my collection with no bad points on its record!

6. I finally got my hands on it, thanks to the lovely Samantha from risingwater. It's the legendary Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Blissful :)

What products have you been new to lately? :)

Said exam will be done within a few hours of this going up, EXCITEMENT! I've noticed a severe lack of make-up posts in the past few weeks, so hopefully that will be rectified in the coming days.. :)

  9. Yu I hit pan on my Elf bronzer today! :( Now that is a product I've been loving recently! I also love the Simple Moisture Mist - gives an amazing dewy glow! <3

    I really want to try a MSF, but I'm not sure which would work for me, might have to pop to Mac after my next payday! x

  14. xDD I know exactly how you felt in the first part of this. When did I age so much!? I haven't experimented much either - it's finals week and I don't have time. But with summer and a year long break from school coming up...why not?!
