The Autumn/Winter Polish !

I don't necessarily change up my makeup or nail choices based on the season but if I had to, today's post, features the nail polishes I would pick. 

Clockwise (from top) - Chanel April, Essie Really Red, Covergirl Midnight Magic, Maybelline Blue Freeze, Sportsgirl Bossy Boots

Chanel April - Chanel April is a muted red shade which is perfect for the current season. Its a beautiful color with great pigmentation and texture. 

Essie Really Red - I love a good red all year round. Essie Really Red is a classic bright red. I love sporting red during Christmas as its so festive. 

Covergirl Midnight Magic - A good choice for winters is grey. Midnight Magic is a dark grey with multi colored shimmer. Its a pretty shimmery shades perfect for winter night outs. 

Maybelline Blue Freeze - I love a good navy in winters. Blue Freeze is a metallic navy blue with subtle shimmer which is not visible once applied. 

Sportsgirl Bossy Boots - I love purple nail polishes. I love Sportsgirl polishes, good quality and choices. Bossy Boots is a gorgeous creamy pigmented purple. Love wearing this on my toes as well. 

Which are your favorite polishes to wear in Autumn/Winter ?

The Face Brush Trio !

In today's post, I am sharing my current favourite brushes for base makeup. 

I love almost all Real Techniques brushes I own and they play a major part in my daily makeup routine. But, it was not until recently that I started using the Coastal Scents 110 brush for foundation, which I absolutely love !

Coastal Scents 110 Brush - I have been using this for my foundation. I love how this brush moves and blends the foundation with ease. This is less dense and less tightly packed as compared to Sigma F82, F84 (other similar brushes I own), which is the WOW factor for me. This allows for a more natural and buffed in finish.

Real Techniques Multi Task Brush - I use this for powder and I love that this just picks the perfect amount. I also use this brush to blend my blush. 

Real Techniques Setting Brush - I use this for blending my concealer for under eyes and also setting my concealer with powder. 

Which brushes have you been loving recently ? What are your must have brushes ?

Review Rimmel Scandaleyes Shadow Stick in Bad Girl Bronze

I am big fan of one eyeshadow look as they are quick and fuss free. Things become even more easy and quick, if you are working with shadow sticks. By Terry Ombre Blackstars are big time on my lust list. Today we are talking about the more affordable alternative, Rimmel Scandaleyes Shadow Stick in Bad Girl Bronze. 

What the company says 
  • High impact colour 
  • Precision tip applicator 
  • Ultra soft formula glides on smoothly 
  • High-shine and luminous finish

Rimmel Scandaleyes Shadow Stick in Bad Girl Bronze is a beautiful bronzy, reddish shade with some shimmer. It can be worn sheer (blended in) for day time look or packed in for a smoky night time look. These shadow sticks can be worn as a base, on their own as an eye shadow or on the lower lash line for a smoky look. 

The Rimmel Shadow Stick has awesome pigmentation. It feels very creamy on the lids and blends easily. It does not pull on the lids at all and is a pleasure to work with.  

These are very easy to use, just dab on your lids and blend with fingers. The packaging is color coded which is a bonus. As far as staying power is concerned, it does crease on me. Stays for 4-5 hours, but thats more of my problem as I have very oily lids and nearly everything creases on me.

The only negative point, I see, is that you have to sharpen them and it results in a lot of product wastage. Apart from that, I am very happy with this shadow stick and would thoroughly recommend giving it a go ! 

Rimmel Shadow Sticks are available in 7 shades and retail for AUD 12.95 (3.25 g). Available at most drugstores, Kmart, Priceline, Big W, etc.

Lazy Girl's must have Beauty Products !

Okay, so I am confessing I am lazy ! Or to put it in a better way, I love products that help me get ready when I am in a rush and in today's post I am sharing just that, my Lazy Girls Must Have Products.

Lush Ambrosia shaving cream
I have raved about this previously here. This is my second bottle using it. It is one of my lazy girls favorite product because you can shave with this outside shower. Take some cream massage it onto the area. It gives the most clean n deep shave. The best is you don't have to wash it off. In fact if you don't have very dry skin you can even skip moisturiser.  

Dove Refresh+Care Dry Shampoo
This is my current favorite dry shampoo. But dry shampoo in general is a definite lazy girls friend. If you dont have time to wash your hair and have super greasy roots, spray some and you are done. It will not give you a clean feeling, but your hair is bound to look much nicer.   

Vaseline Intensive Care Spray Moisturiser
I have spoken about this a lot. This is my body moisturiser of  choice when I am rushing out the door. This is just spray, rub and go. It absorbs in to the skin super quick and feels so light on the skin. Review HERE

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Body Mist Sunscreen Spray
This is similar to the Vaseline sunscreen spray. I spoke about it HERE. This is my choice of sunscreen in summer for  my body as it is light and does not feel sticky. It is so quick, spray, rub and go.

Loreal Brow Artist Plumper 
This provides definition and color to your brows in one step. Has been my go to since I bought this last year. Read my review HERE

Burt's Bees Tinted Lip Balm in Rose 
I first spoke about Burt's Bees lip balm HERE , since then I have finished my hibiscus one and bought a new one in Rose. Its a beautiful red tint. I love this lip balm, it provides two steps in one, moisture and tint. 

What are your favorite lazy girls products ?
