New In This Week

There's nothing like a good makeup haul for a 'pick me up'. This week has been quite a busy challenging tiring week that I'm glad to have a breather this weekend. Super excited about my new finds from online shopping. Here's what I got:

Maybelline Brow Pomade Deep Dark, By Terry Carnal Attraction Lipstick, Charlotte Tilbury Amber Haze Colour Chameleon, Lush Popcorn Lip Scrub, L'oreal Telescopic Mascara

L'Oréal Paris Telescopic Mascara Extra Black
I'm no stranger to L'oreal mascaras. For one I am a huge fan of the LOréal Paris Double Extension Renewal Serum Inside Mascara. However I've just come to realise I havent tried L'oreal Telescopic at all so I picked this up. I was utterly surprised by the teenie tiny brush and even more so when it instantly thickens and lengthens the lashes. I recommend this for small Asian lashes as the wand enables precision.

Picked this up to flatter my dark brown eyes and I must say it does deliver. It is a golden bronze shade, a bit like MAC Amber Lights Eyeshadow but in longwearing stick form. You can apply it all over the lid like for an eyeshadow look but I prefer simply lining my upper lash line. This is the third addition to my CT Colour Chameleon stash. I wonder which will be the fourth?

This is my first lipstick from By Terry (they are so expensive that they hurt my purse). I picked this one up in the recent Space NK sale and I hope you do to. This gorgeous shade is a pink berry, similar to MAC Rebel Lipstick. The formula is a lot more luxurious however. It glides on easily on the lips and stays. You could wear it two ways - with a matching lip pencil, or alone smudged out with a finger to create a stained berry lip. I often do the latter. Love it!

Maybelline Eyestudio Brow Drama Pomade Crayon
It's incredibly difficult to find a good eyebrow pencil for dark eyebrows. Many lean too warm and make the brows a touch gingery. The ideal shade for dark brown eyebrows would be one that leans grey - and I must say I'm content with the shade 'Deep Brown' I have here by Maybelline, although it could be even more grey. I love the chubby pencil and how its easy to use. Its a little pigmented so small feathery strokes go a long way.

Flaky lips call for a lil scrubbing and I've turned to no other but Lush's offering. I was tossing between Popcorn and Mint Chocolate but the former won due to both jojoba oil and coconut oil for extra moisturisation. Apply lip balm straight after use for a juicy pout.
