My Minis Collection

Hey Everyone,

Recently I have been drawn to minis, not just because they are cute, but in regards to certain products, I’m more likely to actually finish it if it’s a mini. This is my current mini collection and I am always on the hunt for more brands that do minis and also minis that I can buy regularly.

These are all of my current Tarte minis, recently I did a haul that gave me pretty much all of these and I love it! I honestly don’t think I will ever need to purchase a full size Tarte blush. The blush on the bottom I have had for over a year, and look how little I have used! You can’t use a heavy hand with these blushes, which is what makes them last forever. Tarte’s Lights, Camera, Lashes mascara is one of my favourites and I prefer getting the mini as then I am more likely to finish it before going off or drying out.

The rest of my mini collection! Most of these have either come from Mecca Beauty Loop boxes or from Sephora as point perks. I have another NARS gloss, but I have no idea where it is since I moved, so hopefully that’ll turn up again! I have gotten so much use out of the Too Faced Melted lipstick which has surprised me. Most of these though I have barely used, but I am working on it!

What is your favourite mini to have?

My recent experience with Sephora Online

Hey Everyone,

I just want to start this post off with saying my issues are with the Australian version of Sephora not America, my two experiences with the in-store Sephora’s in America were fine.

This all started with the 20% off sale that Sephora had for Black Card members. I jumped on that and invited a friend to join in on my order. That was all fine and my package arrived on time, and thats about where the fun ended as my order was half WRONG.

Thankfully the thing that I had gotten for my friend was fine, so I could give that to her and that wasn’t something I had to stress about.

So, I sent this photo both to my friends and Sephora when they asked for a photo of what I received. In this photo you can clearly see what is wrong. I got brushes instead of my Tarte Sampler pack and a POWDER foundation instead of a LIQUID foundation.

So you know, I did the right thing and sent an email to Sephora asking for the correct products, gave them my order number and what I had got rather then what I had ordered.

A week later I finally got a reply and they asked for a photo and a list of what I was meant to get. So I did that and I tried to point out that I didn’t order the powder foundation but the liquid. As you can clearly see in this photo that there are two liquid foundation on my order not a powder and liquid.

After I fire off that email, I don’t hear anything for over a week, and then out of no where I get a text message that I will be expecting an order from Sephora in the next few days. Queue some drama with Aus Post but ah well, my friend managed to get my package for me Tuesday afternoon.

AND IT WAS WRONG AGAIN!!

There is a theme of getting my orders half wrong apparently, because this time my Tarte item came, which I love and I can’t wait to use. But once again the foundation I was after did not arrive. They sent me the powder foundation again! Even though I had asked for the liquid version and was told that if they didn’t have my shade in stock I would be refunded.

I have sent off another email letting them know that I have gotten the wrong order and sent them a unedited photo of the picture above. So we shall see what happens now, I will make sure to post an update when I find out.

***Update***

I got a refund for the foundation.

So yea, I don’t think I will ever order from Sephora online again, because this is just beyond ridiculous in regards to getting my order right.

Let me know what your experiences have been.

Green Shift Makeup Look!

Hey Guys!

I have been loving a darker look recently, and I am feel so inspired by winter! I am super happy with how my eyes turned out in this look, but not sure how I feel about my lips, I wanted to do something different but improvised.

IMG_1975

My idea behind this look was that I wanted green eyes with a red crease. The hardest part of this was actually trying to get the red crease, as I wanted it to be matte. I found that the shadows that I thought would work for me didn’t, they weren’t red enough, so I had to lightly layer over a red shimmer. It worked out in the end, but I ended up using a lot more shadows in the crease than I wanted.

The main shadows of this look are Spectral Fragments by Femme Fatal Cosmetics and Lumi by Sugar Pill Cosmetics. I have a deep love for my Femme Fatal shades, because they are unique and so easy to work with. Lumi is a shadow that simply works with everything and I love it to death.

Lips:

Jeffree Star Cosmetics Unicorn Blood (swatch post)

Sugar Pill Lumi layer over top. (A different shade was also used, but looking back that shadow is not lip safe so I will not be listing it here.)

I found that while Spectral Fragments is a beautiful duo chrome colour, it does bruise on my eyes. So if you have an eye shape/ design (?) similar to mine please be aware of that! The green shift lasted really well on the part of my lid that did not fold away, the areas that did got bruised and so only had the dark undertone left.

I originally was going to pair JS Weirdo with this look, but I didn’t have it with me, so I thought I would try Unicorn Blood. This is my first experience trying to layer shadows like this over lipstick, I feel it turned out pretty well though!
