As you’ve been surfing your social media, specifically Instagram, you might have come across makeup videos featuring new looking brushes usually dubbed “oval brushes”. They’re very popular and brands are racing to make their own version, similarly to happened with the Beauty Blender.
After seeing a billion videos of these oval brushes being used and producing beautiful, flawless results, I was really curious and wanted a try some as well. I don’t need to tell you that getting anything brand new in Australia is annoying; there are some local brands that are starting to bring them out but they either sell out so fast or burn your pocket out quick-fast. Nude By Nature had brought out a set exclusively through Priceline and I sadly missed out on those. I was kicking myself.
Then on a trip to TK Maxx, I found this set of five oval brushes from an in-house brand and took them home to try…
I don’t know about you but it seems like every beauty video on Instagram is becoming more and more ridiculous under clickbait or some incredibly fucking stupid way to put makeup on. At first I wasn’t sure if it’s to be the next trendsetter, but now I’m absolutely positive it’s just for the clicks.
It’s been a while but the phlegm monster ventured out today to Priceline and TK Maxx. Of course all of the products I bought were things I weren’t intending on buying except some gum. Isn’t that the way it goes?
So what goodies did Priceline seduce me with?
I’ve been attempting to write this for days.. hell, weeks. Every way to try and write this has gone through my head and it’s just one of those things that kind of make sense in your head then when you go to write it down, it doesn’t come out coherently. I’m going to do my best though, as I don’t want this to be taken out of context or anyone to feel offended; all I want to do is create a dialogue where there currently isn’t one and maybe, even make someone feel better about being in a similar situation.
Once again I’m late on the Kat Von D Liquid Lipstick bandwagon but I know this is a very popular lipstick that has gone through different re-formulations, so I thought it would be helpful to post about it.
To be honest, I wasn’t sure I had the right lipstick, but I had bought it in a gift set from Sephora so it had to not only be real but had the correct labelling. That’s where I did some digging and found out that Lolita has gone through a few re-formulations, as you can see here-
Ahhh yes, winter has now settled in around here and my skin knows it. Grumpy, itchy, dry skin that begged for exfoliation even after exfoliating. Remembering that I have some products stashed away, I decided to have a peek to see if I have anything to help my skin and wouldn’t you know it, I happened across this five-day treatment by Dr Dennis Gross that I bought when I was in Canada and totally forgot about. It was like my skin spirit animal was singing to me.
I decided to document my progress over the days and see if I can revive my very grumpy skin.
