Rosegold & Mossy Green Eyes //Spring FOTD

Don't get me wrong, I do not have the pleasure of being in Spring but I kind of feel like it is with all of the spring-inspired makeup looks going around lately. If you can't tell I am quite big in "matching" my makeup to the seasons but I can easily forget which season I am actually in, especially when I barely see any autumny looks going around.
Anyway, without meaning to on this day I was just applying my eyeshadow without really thinking of the outcome in the end, but I ended up with loving this combo! Although the eyes did not end up turning rose gold like they did in the jar, it still looked pretty. Paired with a very light blush and bolder lip added to the springy look.

The Procrastinating Beauty Blogger Tag

There is almost no tag suited better for me, so thanks for the lovely Dawn for the opportunity to complete this! I tried not to put it off for too long ;) And it was created by 'The Beau Bow'.


1. You must copy and paste these 'rules' onto your post when you write it, it doesn't take long!.
2. You must state that this tag was created by 'The Beau Bow' and link
3. You must thank the person who tagged you at the start of your post (link their blog as well) -follow them if you're feeling nice!, and then at the end of your post state who you tag, and then comment on their blog on their latest post to let them know you tagged them, and link your post so they can see what to do.
4. Title this post 'The Procrastinating Beauty Blogger TAG' so everyone knows what it is about.
5. Have fun! :)

1.Name a beauty regime that you rarely do?
I  can't think of any of the top of my head, I always moisturize in the morning & cleanse at night, and I almost always apply my eye makeup and then my foundation afterwards in the morning, oh and I make sure to moisturize after a shower.. so there's a few that I always do :)

2. Is washing your makeup brushes something you do regularly?
I wish, I usually have to take my brushes into work to find time to clean them so I don't like to do that too often, but I try to make it no longer than 4 weeks! Which is still bad.

3. How long will you last with chipped nail polish?
Uhh yeah if it starts chipping I will usually leave it for a couple of days until it gets really bad, show me the time & patience to wait for my nails to dry every night!

4. How long do you put off buying/replacing a beauty or nail polish product even if you need it? (i.e purchasing a new topcoat, or a new foundation etc.)
I usually have enough backups in my stash that if I run out of something I always have a couple of stand in's, although it does take me forever to use up any products which can be a curse! But if it's something like makeup remover wipes if I haven't already bought any I might have one or two left before I buy more, or I might be scrapping my moisturizer out of the jar before repurchase.

5. What is your worst beauty habit?
Probably picking at my eyelashes when wearing mascara, ugh! Flakies and broken eyelashes are not pretty!

6. Name something non-beauty related that you put off doing all the time?I am always finding it hard to get into my TAFE assignments! But I try not to leave them for too long.

7. When going out somewhere, do you leave getting ready until the last minute or not?
Depending on how dressed up I need to be, I will always give myself plenty of time unless it is not long after work then I have no choice but to rush which usually ends in frustration & nothing going my way. But if I have to do my hair properly & I am not sure exactly what to do with my makeup obviously that is not something to rush.

8. Can you commit to spending bans?
I have only really tried once, and it wasn't a proper one, ok! But if there is a really good special on... gotta pick it up, no matter the circumstances!

9. How organised is your makeup and nail polish collection?
My makeup collection is getting there, I have a trolley where each tray is sorted into face, palettes, eyes, lashes & hair stuff with baskets, and the main stuff at the top, but then I have more bags on my dressing table, a clear container for lipsticks and boxes of pigments and stuff.
But my nail polish is a mess jumbled into a box so it's almost impossible to find anything! I have no room for it.

10. What is the longest amount of time you have gone without writing a blog post?
I always have a few blog posts on the go, at the moment I have 10+ so it's getting out of hand & I am always adding to each post, so I don't generally go long without writing anything.
Included a couple of random pictures just to add some more excitement :P
Alright so now I have to tag people, but because I am too lazy for that ;) I tag you all, for anyone who feels like they can relate to this tag!

Oh and I have some pretty exciting news :) I will most likely be going on a spending ban (awesome specials & the absolute essentials not included haha) as I had to shell out for a new passport... because my Fiancee and I have finally booked our holiday to America in July!! We have been talking about it for years so now that we've booked our flights and started on our hotels I am getting excited because it's actually going to happen! 
So the main reason for my spending ban is because obviously because I am going to take a huge advantage of everything we get taxed so hard for... makeup, beauty, clothes, shoes.....and hopefully not go too much over the luggage limit haha.
I am already planning what I want to buy and what I will need to to take... it is going to be hard to select extremely minimal makeup that I can bring!

So yeah....let me know if you have participated in this tag :)

Face of Australia Sheer Gloss Lip Crayons // Review & Swatches

.If you are into sheer, moisturizing lip colours then Face of Australia Sheer Gloss Lip Crayons are for you. Packaged in a wind-able, chubby stick-like, well, stick, they are perfect to chuck in the bag for reapplication during the day without being a hassle. I apologize in advanced, as I was hesitant to post this as I found out they were limited edition afterwards but I still wanted to post my review & swatches.

Copy Cat Makeup // Dramatic Coloured FOTN

Is it fair to say I was "inspired" by Misschievious on Youtube when I pretty much copied her drugstore makeup tutorial? And although I was drooling over the Sleek Lagoon palette she used, I knew I would have plenty of similar colours I could substitute them for. I love using a darker base underneath bright colours for a bright but smoky look, as done in my Jewel Smoky Eye Makeup, as it brings them out differently compared to a lighter base.

And although this was a bored-on-a-saturday-night-playing-with-makeup-look it wasn't a waste of makeup as we ended up going out in the end. Nothing worse when you do your makeup perfectly and then nothing happens!

Maybelline One By One Mascara // Review + Comparison

So a few weeks ago I posted about buying 2 new mascaras- Maybelline One By One & The Falsies. I decided to open One by One first as I already had a few volumizing mascaras on the go. It's funny though I've been able to find these 2 mascara's compared to each other a lot on the internet. I've been using it for almost a month so I wanted to share what I thought although it has been out for a while.

Day To Night Makeup // Ft Wet n Wild Vanity Palette + Swatches

I love posting day to night makeup looks, mainly because there are only a few elements that you need to change in order from it going to a wearable day time look to a sexy & smoky night time eye. Here I am "showcasing" the Wet n Wild Vanity palette. The decision to go out this night was last minute so I didn't have time to completely change it up so it was easy to intensify what I had on from the day.

Monday, March 11, 2013 // Clothing Haul

A little while ago I ordered for the first time from as they had a sale with clothing & accessories up to 75%. I see their ad on TV & in magazines all the time so I thought I would give it a go. I have only really just started ordering clothes online because they are something I'd prefer to try on first because sometimes when something looks good on the hanger it doesn't look as nice or is as flattering as what I thought, and my sizing can be iffy.

I thought they were Australian, but as far as I know they are in the UK but they also have an Australian website, with free shipping to Australia. Most of their clothing is reasonably priced and you can always find items on special.

Bourjois Products // Swatches // Bronzer, Blush, Healthy Mix & More

These are just some swatches, comparisons & opinions on the Bourjois products I hauled recently, shown here.
I didn't include the mascara in this post as I haven't opened it yet.

Extreme Winged Eyeliner //FOTD Ft Wnw Dollhouse Pink

Do you ever have the days when you do your eyeliner thicker on one eye, so you go back in the other eye but over compensate on that and it just gets bigger and bigger? Yeah, I had that problem. But I ended up liking it in the end and thought it went with the eyeshadow & the lipstick look. Probably definitely a bit too much for daytime makeup but I work in a salon, not an office! Although I def. would love to wear this makeup look on a night out.

La Splash Glitters // Review, Swatches & Comparison

 Recently-ish I I received my La Splash Glitter Splash that I purchased from Cherry Culture as I had shown here. I've only really tried NYX's loose glitters before so I will be doing a little bit of a comparison between these 2 brands and a small review & swatches. Oh, I plan to (and have already ordered some more ;) ) buy more in the near future so I will keep updating the swatches.

China Glaze Nail Lacquer// Shocking Pink Swatches

Everybody loves a good neon, right? Well, I know I do, especially on my nails. I think I will continue wearing neon colours long into winter. China Glaze Shocking Pink is the perfect pick-me-up I will be needing, because the colder months are about to hit.
