Essence lipliners Review

If you are looking for affordable lip liners then you may want to try these Essence lip
liners. They are soft and creamy and easy to use. They are in a wooden pencil form so you just sharpen and use them.

The two colours I have tried are 'hot chocolate' - a brown colour and 'satin mauve'- a wine plum colour, both of which are great to outline your lips and then add your lipstick.

They are $2 each from Priceline and definitely worth checking out.

What lip liner do you use?

Movie Review: Confessions of a Shopaholic

I know this movie has been out on DVD for a while, but I like watching it and wanted to do a review.

Its a movie set in the glamorous world of New York City, Rebecca Bloomwood (played by Isla Fisher) is a fun, loving girl who is really good at shopping. Actually she is obsessed with shopping.

She dreams of working for her favorite fashion magazine, but can’t quite get her foot in the door until one day, she lands a job as an advice columnist for a financial magazine published by the same company.

As her dreams are finally coming true, she goes to ever more hilarious and extreme efforts to keep her past from ruining her future.

That's right she has credit card debts well over her head, from all that shopping she loves to do, that she is now being followed by a debt collector.

The movie takes you through all her lies, and avoidances to not get caught by the debt collector. This movie has a good storyline and a good lesson to learn from.

If your a shopaholic, you need to stop now!

It shows how out of control a shopping addiction can get, but also shows that you can change your habits.

Its one of those movies that you will either love or hate, there has been a mixed response on what people think of this movie, from what I've read.

Its based on the book by Sophie Kinsella, which I haven't read yet. For me I think its a entertaining, funny, and catchy storyline.

What is your favourite movie?

What makes you SMILE?

With all the busy stuff going on in our life, it is always good to sit back and really think about what makes you smile.

For me I smiled when I saw the sun come out this morning, its been rather cold lately, a little sunshine is very welcome.

I love seeing and hearing new things, that makes me smile.

I like looking for a new plant that has grown in the backyard that makes me smile.

I like reading new books that are being released that makes me smile.

My kids are growing up so quickly and its so beautiful to see them achieve things in their lives, that makes me smile.

I like watching new movies that are released, that makes me smile.

Knowing that life is what you make of it and I am trying my hardest to embrace every opportunity,  makes me smile,

It's definitely worth taking the time to think of the great things in your life no matter how big or small.

They all count and make a difference.

Tell me what makes you smile?

Be confident and be yourself!

It is so easy to lose confidence these days. Self confidence is about believing in what you can do, and having a positive impression of yourself. It is all about how you think of yourself.

Positive self talk is a great way to build confidence. No matter what you look like or who you are, you must be confident in who YOU are, the things you like, the things you dream of and definitely don't change for anyone!

You are who you are, and you can only learn and get better for yourself!

Be surrounded by positive people, get rid of any negativity in your life, and live life confidently!

Keep on telling yourself that you are confident and it will grow on you and you will be really be confident. Keep on telling yourself that you are beautiful and talented and amazing and a great person and you will believe it. Once its in your head, you will have the self confidence you need.

Don't let anyone or anything put you down. Don't worry about what other people think of you. It is all about you and what you want. When you start feeling self conscious or critical of yourself, think of the positive aspects, and focus on positivity.

Do things to make you feel confident.

Exercise a little every day or a few times a week. It will boost your energy.

Dress the way that you want to dress, it doesn't matter what others think.

The key to building self confidence is making yourself feel good about yourself.

Rimmel London The Only 1 Lipstick Review

I love lip products and was intrigued to try out the new Rimmel The Only 1 lipsticks which come in 12 shades.

They are marketed as the only lipstick you ever need!

Rimmel says: A no compromise ALL IN ONE lipstick. Long-lasting colour, comfort, moisture and wear. 

• A no compromise all-in-one lipstick that is challenging the lipstick history.
• The perfect balance of high impact colour, moisture, all day comfort and staying power
• Slanted lipstick bullet for an effortless application

Straight up they are a great lipstick - they apply smoothly, are creamy, moisturising and stay on for at least six hours. To me they are more of a balm when applying, but wear like a lipstick in terms of pigmentation and wear. The finish of these are a satiny finish which feels great on the lips.

The only thing I would suggest is applying a lip liner as they do bleed over my lips. I would also like to see more nude shades, as at the moment there are more reds and pinks...who knows maybe in the future more shades will come.

My favourite lipsticks from this range are Left  - 700 naughty nude, Right - 200 its a keeper

Overall they are beautiful. They are really a great lip product that deliver on smooth application, creamy finish, long wearing and great pigmentation.

Have you tried these? Which colour did you like?

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipsticks Review

My favourite lipsticks are the Revlon Super Lustrous lipsticks, I love them!

I have made it my beauty goal to buy all of them eventually. They have over 80 different shades in four finishes - Matte, Pearl, Creme and Shine. Such a great variety of colours.

I love the Creme range the most followed closely by the Shine range. The formula of these lipsticks are moisturising and feel soft on the lips. They have at least four hours wear on me.

They apply smoothly, with great pigmentation and wear beautifully!

My favourite Revlon lipstick is Tea Rose - a beautiful deep red/burgundy

Too Faced Chocolate Bar Eyeshadows Review

I love it when I find a really good eyeshadow and this Too Faced chocolate bar palette is definitely beautiful in every way.  And of course it smells like chocolate!!

The eyeshadow colours are great for everyday! There are a few mattes which I love, when I just want to sweep one eyeshadow colour on and put some mascara on and I am good to go.
These eyeshadows are really pigmented and easy to use. They apply smoothly and there is not much fallout which is what I love.

Good quality eyeshadows and the colours are so wearable which last all day. I love them all except for the two dark ones in the top corners of the palette I haven't worn those.

It also has a big mirror which is great for travelling.

I bought this from Beautybay, they deliver to Australia for free. Definitely highly recommended if you are looking for that palette that has everything you need for beautiful eyelooks.

What eyeshadow palette are you loving at the moment?
