Beauty store Spoilage | Haul

Hey all! About two weekends ago, I had stopped in the beauty supply store (Diamond Girl), and I was in a bout of luck as they had just restocked everything, including MILANI!! Whenever I usually go in there, they're out of all the baked blushes, so I made sure I picked up a couple :D hehe. Also I got a new liquid liner to try out and I must say, I'm enjoying the brush on this one a lot more than the NYX one I have.

I bought some weaving thread for a project I'm putting together to show you guys, so look out for that soon.

I also picked up some makeup wipes from the beauty supply store, to try out. So far they're very soft, and work ok.
Finally, I picked a Jolie lipstick at the Girlfriend's expo, in the colour Imperial purple. I've been lusting after this colour for about a year now! Swatches coming on that soon.

Valentines day humour & Rewind Wednesday

Hey all! So I was contemplating what to post today, and I was at a total lost because for some reason I'm not all on the Valentines day train like last year. Despite having a bf, friends and family to share in the holiday with, I don't even have thoughts on it . This might have been the quietest V'day I have had yet.

But because it'd be boring if I didn't at least post something else about it, this Wednesday I'm flashing back to last year when I did the 10 Valentine's day questions. Funny enough most of my answers are the same. I guess I'm a simple & unchanging gal.

Then in my search for Valentine's day post ideas, I stumbled across these on the Fail Blog. Some were too hilarious not to share!

Finally the cutest, though not as sensible to me... as I'm a cat lover and all.

Are you feeling Valentine's day this year? Or are you a v'day hater?

Coastal Scents Blush Too Palette | Swatches

Hey all! another installment of my Coastal Scents  haul, yayyy! I bought a couple palettes, a brush set and some eye shadows. I've showed you the lip palette and the eye shadows in their pots, and today I'm going to be showing you another palette, the Blush Too.

I have the original blush palette by this brand, but I'm telling you now the colours in this one are more up the alley for darker-skintones. Despite the Original 10 Piece blush palette being pigmented, many of the colours were too light and ended up looking like a chalky mess on me. I love this newer one because the colours are richer, darker and more daring. Have you seen this orange and that purple blush? Not for the faint at heart. If you're just starting out in makeup, trust me and leave this out.  I'm glad I bought the original then, because had it been this palette, I'd look like a clown quite often.

Onto the swatches...

When Anxiety attacks | Life

Sitting on this end of the keyboard and blogging doesn't usually lend much to discerning all of my feelings towards something. There's only so much you can express through typing words, right? I would have loved to made a video about this, but alas, I can't. Today's post isn't about beauty, but instead about anxiety and its disorders, which appears to be normal.

Coastal Scents 32 Lip palette | Swatches

Hey all! I'm really late today, but I wanted to get up this post because I promised I'd post the rest of my Coastal Scents haul. I'll let the photos do the talking as there isn't much to say about this palette besides that it's a really good deal especially if you want to do other people's makeup or want to try new colours without buying individual lippies.

The pots are the size of a quater, and not every colour in the palette is opaque, but there is a good mixture of creams, shimmers, frosts even, and sheer colours. The would be fun for mixing your own custom colour. All of them have a gloss finish, but if you blot your lips you would get a more matte look.

Garnier Skin Renew BB Cream (Combination to Oily Skin) | Review

Hey all! I know, I know, I was to review this everrrrr since but I can say I've had the a load of time to try out this product and figure it out. I wanted to try one of the Garnier BB creams for some time in 2013, but had heard some bad reviews on the normal skin version of this one. Although my skin isn't particularly oily, I tend to prefer products for combo/oily skin, because the heat of Barbados makes anyone's skin "dewy" by midday.

I nabbed this product at Collins Pharmacy for $30.35BDS when I realised they finally had the Deep shade in stock. Since using it, I feel like I could go one shade lighter, but this works for every day as it blands in with my neck very well. The product is in a squeeze tube and there is 2oz of the liquid,  which is great considering the price of it. Typically foundations are just 1oz.
