MAC Haul!

My order from MAC arrived in the mail today, so I thought I'd share what I got and why. Yay!

From left to right: Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder, Brow Set (Clear), Strobe Cream, Paint Pot (Let Me Pop), and six Face and Body miniatures (50mL).

I've been looking for an invisible pressed powder for ages, so I'm pretty excited to try this one out.

Brow Set is a must must must have in my kit, in fact I thought I'd lost mine the other day so tried the old hairspray on a brow brush trick but it wasn't the same. Luckily I had just left it in my on-set belt so no brows remained untamed that day.. Phew!

I love Paint Pots as a base for powder eyeshadows or on their own. They're also nice as a strong highlighter. Let Me Pop is a beautiful light copper, perfect as a base for a metallic smoky eye or as a wash of colour to combine with a wine stained lip for autumn/winter!

Face and Body is one of those must have foundation range to carry in your kit as a makeup artist. It's lightweight, water resistant formula makes it perfect for evening skin tone on the body as it won't rub off on the clothes.

You can read more about these products and purchase them online from or go into any of the MAC concept stores or counters nationally.

Could this be the only makeup palette you will ever need?

Well no, obviously, but this new limited edition palette called The Happening by Nars comes pretty close to perfection.

It contains the iconic Orgasm blush and Laguna bronzer, both staples in my kit, plus four beautiful neutral eyeshadow shades, which means that it would suit pretty much any skin tone. Loving that! Its a great palette for personal or professional use. I'm definitely adding it to my wishlist!

Nars The Happening Palette is available for a limited time from Mecca and retails at $105.

Illamasqua's Fight for a Fair Beauty Price in Australia

If you've ever bought makeup overseas or waited for a friend or family member to go on holidays to bring you back some makeup because its so much cheaper than buying it in Australia, then this is a bandwagon you should be jumping on!

"Australian retail is dying", we keep hearing on the news. Is it any wonder when it costs us so much more (61% more according to Illamasqua founder, Julian Kynaston) for the exact same product if went down to our local store or beauty counter and buy it than if we get it overseas or online? Personally I'd prefer to keep my Aussie dollars in the country, but when those Aussie dollars will go so much further overseas, its tempting to jump online and spend them there!

Take a moment to watch this video of Illamasqua founder Julian Kynaston. He does a better job of explaining it than I can!
