My Priceline Cosmetics Sale Wishlist

Hey Guys

So hopefully you all know that on Wednesday and Thursday this week (18th & 19th of November) there will be the semi annual 40% off of cosmetics sale at Priceline.

I have developed a wishlist of items and thought I would share it here with you. Most of the products I have not tried and can't share a review of them, but I do always try to read up on items before I purchase them. 


So I have been looking at adding better quality brushes to my collection, to slowly replace all of my eBay brushes. I have two Models Prefer brushes currently and I really like the quality of them. 

I am really after a new highlighting brush as my current one makes the highlighter quite thick and noticeable, so much so that I have to blend with a clean brush after. I have heard great things about this brush so fingers crossed I can find it in stock somewhere!

I thought this brush looked like a perfect eyeshadow blending brush which is always necessary.

I love foundation and I love trying out new foundation brushes. Either of these brushes look perfect to add to my growing collection.

I am not 100% certain that this brush set is included in the sale but I thought I would pop it on my wishlist regardless. These brushes look adorable and I always enjoy the Nude by Nature range. 


I absolutely love my Rimmel Stay Matte Primer but I am always on the look out for something slightly better. I have really enjoyed everything I have tried from Models Prefer so far and thought that this primer sounded perfect for me. 

I have heard some amazing things about this primer and I figured that at 40% off it would be a perfect time to try it out. 

I have always loved the oily/combination liquid version of the Revlon Colorstay foundation. I thought maybe I would try something different and pick up the whipped version of the foundation. 

My skin has actually been really good lately but I would love to have a full coverage concealer in my collection for the bad skin days. 

I recently finished up my Australis Setting Spray so I thought it was time to try this one from Models Prefer. 

I probably will not end up getting all of these items, but I thought I might as well add them to a wishlist to share with all of you. What are you thinking of picking up in the Priceline sale?

Love Liz xx

Review: Maybelline FitME Matte + Poreless Foundation

Hey Guys

So today I wanted to share with you a review on the new Maybelline Foundation, the FitME Matte + Poreless Foundation. This is an expansion on the original FitME Foundation that was actually one of my first foundations, unfortunately it left me looking like a greaseball and quite a few shades darker and orange than I was meant to be.  So I told myself that I would not be buying this foundation due to my past experience with the Maybelline FitME range. 

However when I stumbled across (ha) a 50% off Maybelline sale at Terry White, I found myself trying to find my shade in this new foundation, matte and poreless, sounds right up my alley! I matched myself to shade 120, Classic Ivory. This shade is still a little dark for my winter skin, but once summer comes around it should be a perfect match.

So I don't quite agree that this foundation makes my skin poreless, they are still there, maybe a bit covered and hidden by foundation but I don't typically consider my pores as a huge problem when I have foundation on. My primer typically helps with my pores regardless. I do however agree that this foundation is matte. I always powder my face, as I will be oily 5 seconds after I finish my face if I don't. I could potentially go without powder for this foundation, but I like to stick to my routine. 

Now this foundation does oxidise a little on myself, and also runs more yellow than neutral but it is still a decent match for my skin. You might struggle to find an appropriate shade as there is only 6 shades in the range. But if you can find a match I would recommend picking up this foundation. It lasts all day on me, with only a little bit of oil peaking through at the end of the day (without touch ups). Which is impressive as I was wearing this for over 12 hours a day when I was doing my work experience. 

Currently you can grab this for 50% off at Chemist Warehouse, but Maybelline is regularly on sale. This foundation retails for $18.95 AU which is a bargain anyway!

Review: Too Faced Natural Eyes Palette

Hello my lovelies

I have a much loved palette to share with you guys today, I am actually a bit surprised it has taken so long for me to review as I have been using this since September, as it was a birthday gift. WARNING this post is a little picture heavy :P

This is the Too Faced Natural Eye Neutral Eyeshadow Collection Palette, a bit of a mouthful but an absolutely stunning neutral palette. As you may know, I love neutral shadows, it is my definite go to look and I feel like most neutral shades suit everybody! 

This was my first Too Faced product, I was always aware of the brand and its good reputation in the beauty community, I just had not yet purchased anything. 

This palette consists of 9 shadows, 3 kind of large base shadows and 6 smaller crease or lid shadows (this is my personal preference but does not have to be a rule for you). The palette also contains a guide for how to use the shadows in a day, classic and fashion look. 

All of the shades are very soft, pigmented and blends easily. Honestly this palette is a dream to use and I would recommend it to anyone who loves neutral and a mix of matte and shimmer shades. 

Heaven, Cashmere Bunny & Sexpresso
Silk Teddy, Push-Up & Erotica

Nudie, Honey Pot & Chocolate Martini

What are some of your favourite palettes?

Love Liz xx


Hey Guys

It has been way too long! Alright so before I get back into blogging, I just wanted to let you know what has been going on in my life. 

So I graduated from University last year and my field required more study in order for me to finish my qualifications. I started a full time 15 week course back in February which was quite difficult and required a lot of time and effort. I was also required to do practical assessments, which I was not at all prepared for as I only ever had to do that in my first year of Uni. Fortunately I made some great friends who are very much a part of the reason I survived. 

So I finished the course component in May and the week after I started a work experience placement for 75 day/15 weeks. I was working as a volunteer for 5 full days of the week and had to work on the weekend at my casual job to pay bills. My family helped me out a lot during this time and I really appreciate everything they have done for me to achieve my goals.  

I finished my final day of work experience yesterday and I was honestly so sad to leave. I enjoyed everything about it, so much so that I was almost happy getting up before 6 in the mornings! I worked with some of the most amazing and lovely people, I have so many memories that I will cherish from my short time there. I also loved the work, which just makes me so happy to realise that I can enjoy the career path I have chosen. 

The main downfall to all of this however was that I felt that I had no time to spend on my blog or really doing anything in my spare time other than cooking, cleaning or spending time with loved ones. Having one day off a week is difficult when you live out of home and have to clean up after several people. 

I tried to remain active on my Instagram account, @justalittlebitofliz but I have really missed blogging. But I will have plenty of time to post regularly while I job hunt :P

If there is any suggestions on what kind of posts you would like to see just let me know. I have purchased a bit of stuff over the past few months, which I look forward to reviewing. 

Love Liz xx

April Favourites

Hey Guys

April was a fairly busy month for me but May is going to be even crazier with only 3 weeks left in my course and the beginning of my work experience at the end of the month. 

I stopped wearing makeup often as I was only going out once or twice a week, but I had a few firm favourites that I was relying on. 

Wotnot Facial Wipes for oily/sensitive skin*

I was sent these back when Wotnot first released their wipes for oily/sensitive skin and I must say that I have quite enjoyed them. I on the whole try not to use face wipes as I try to properly cleanse my skin but these are great for the times when you just really need to wipe off your makeup. These are very soft wipes that are quite large in size and I find do not make my face sting at all ($2 wipes I am looking at you). I really have enjoyed having these wipes in my stash and I would definitely consider picking up the full size packet when I run out. These retail for $7.99 AU for 25 wipes.

Revlon Colorstay Foundation for Combination/Oily Skin 
What more can I say about this foundation that hasn't already been said!? I went off this foundation for a while for my Estee Lauder Double Wear but have recently fallen back in love with Revlon. I cannot find another drugstore foundation that lasts all day and offers such high coverage. I am looking forward to Loreal's Infalliable Matte Foundation but sadly that is not available yet in Australia so this will have to make do for now. Currently I have the shade 220 Natural Beige but this may be slightly a bit too light and pink for my skin tone but considering it is almost Winter it should be fine for the next couple of months. This foundation retails for $34.95 AU but you can always find this on sale somewhere.

Nivea Lip Butter in Raspberry Rose

My lips have been ridiculously dry lately,winter is coming! I have made sure to have a lip balm close by and this month it was Nivea's Raspberry Rose which smells amazing! Quite an inexpensive lip balm and does a decent job moisutrising my lips. My only peeve is that it is a tub which can make it somewhat unhygienic and mainly just annoying that you end up with lip balm on your finger afterwards. This retails for $5.69 AU.

Sephora Eyeshadow in Be on the A-list #49

I got this eyeshadow in one of the Sephora kits I purchased back in January. I really love this eyeshadow as a lid colour and sometimes when I am super lazy as an all over sweep of colour. I am really addicted to bronze colours and this is pigmented and easy to blend. 

Face of Australia Blush in Terra

I picked up this blush during the Kmart clearance where it was only $4! I am so glad I did as I have found that this blush is perfect for a bit of colour and slight contour only lazy days. There is a slight amount of shimmer in this blush but it is not too noticeable when on your skin. It is a lovely pinky brown colour and looks great on my olive skin. This retails for $9.45 AU. 

Australis Blemish Buster Acne Fighting Primer

I have been using this primer in conjunction with my Rimmel Stay Matte Primer on days when my skin has been a bit out of control. I tend to use this mainly on the areas with spots as it is quite moisturising and I am always worried that if I used it on my whole face it would turn into an oily mess by mid-day. I find that this does not necessarily help my spots but it definitely does not break me out and I do not find that my spots are worse when I get home after having makeup on for the whole day. This retails for $16.95 AU. 

My month was mainly about makeup that was easy to use and less effort to put on. I do love makeup and I love wearing makeup but sometimes you just need to slap it on and get on with the day :P

Review: Models Prefer Essential Brow Kit

Hey Lovelies

I have had this brow kit for a while so I thought that I should share my thoughts on it with you. I purchased this during a 40% off cosmetics sale at Priceline  (haul here), this retails for $12.99AU but I purchased it for $7.79AU. 

This little kit is quite small so I think it would be great for travel, it feels sort of sturdy but then also like it could accidentally open and you could misplace the tweezers and brush. As mentioned, the kit does come with a super cute mini tweezers and brush which is great if you are using this on the go or for travelling. I would prefer to use my own brush and tweezers at home but this is definitely a great alternative if you have no other options. The kit contains a tinted wax on the left and a powder on the right. 

I picked up the kit in medium to dark however there is light to medium version as well. Obviously this is not going to suit everybody but I am fortunate that the medium to dark does a decent job of matching my brows.  The back of the kit states - 
All the tools you need for perfect eyebrows! Shape brows using the tweezers. Define them using the tinted wax and then fill the sparse areas with the powder.

I could be completely wrong here so please forgive me, but I prefer to fill in my brows with powder and then finish them off with wax as I find that the wax makes them stay in place, I would not want to mess with that by putting powder on top. At least that is the way that I prefer to do my brows, in no means am I an expert, I just go with what I find works best for me personally. 

Overall I do like this kit, I think it is really great for travelling. I probably prefer just using a pencil on my brows because they are quite full so I don't tend to do a lot to them. But it is nice to have this in my drawers for when I feel like doing something different.

Priceline 40% off Cosmetics Haul

Hey Lovelies

It is a little late now but I wanted to share with you what I purchased from the recent Priceline 40% off cosmetics sale. 

I absolutely love when Priceline has their 50% off cosmetics sale. I pretty much keep a list of things that I want to try but am not willing to pay full price for so 40% off is a great time to pick up such things. I am trying to curb my spending currently so I feel like I was very restrained during this sale (the first one I went to I spent over $200, whoops haha).

I picked up two blushes in this sale even though I originally had told myself I would be purchasing no more blushes. My blushes no longer all fit in my blush compartment so my addiction is getting a little crazy. Unfortunately for me, the new Max Factor Creme Puff Blush had arrived in Priceline. I had really wanted Nude Mauve but of course that was completely sold out, so rather than purchase it later when it was no longer on sale I opted to pick up Lavish Maude. Lavish Maude is a lovely purple brown pink shade, crazy to describe but looks absolutely stunning in the pan. Despite the name these blushes are actually baked powder blushes and not a cream blush. They retail for $21.95AU but was on sale for $13.17AU. I also went past the Savvy display at Priceline and the blushes caught my eye. They were only $4.99AU regularly! I had to resist from picking them all up but I did grab one in the shade Nude. This was on sale for only $2.99AU. 

I told myself I would purchase no new eye shadows unless they were cream eye shadows, I actually managed to stick with this rule. I picked up another new release from Max Factor which was their Excess Shimmer Eyeshadow. These looked absolutely stunning and seemed like a slightly creamier version of the color tattoos by Maybelline. Shade 20 Copper went straight into my basket. These retail for $19.95AU but was on sale for $11.97AU. 

Australis Fresh and Flawless Pressed Powder really does this even need to be mentioned? I absolutely love this powder and continue to pick up extras when they are on sale. I will always have a back up on hand. Read more about this powder here. This retails for $11.95AU and was on sale for $7.17AU. A new one from Australis however was their Blemish Buster Primer, I am always up for a new primer that will help to keep my skin clear and calm. This retails for $16.95AU but was on sale for $10.17AU.

Lastly I picked up two new brushes from Models Prefer as they were included in the sale and I have a thing going for makeup brushes at the moment, the more the merrier. I wanted a new base brush as my RT buffing brush has seen better days, so I picked up the BB Brush which retails for $22.99AU but was on sale for $13.79AU. Along with the foundation brush I wanted a larger concealer brush for under my eyes, so I felt the Airbrush Concealer Brush was a good choice. That brush retails for $12.99AU but was on sale for $7.80AU.

Did you pick up anything in the Priceline sale?

Review: twotreehouse Matchbox Lip Balms*

Hey Guys

Today I have a review of some lip balms to share with you, the twotreehouse Matchbox Lip Balms*. I was sent these lip balms to try out and I wanted to share my thoughts with you guys. 

First off, how cute are these little lip balms?! The bestselling matchbox lip balms are sold in packs of 3 with 2 different flavour choices. I chose the tropical set which contains a mango, passionfruit and pineapple lip balms, however there is also the original set which contains a tangerine, mint and strawberry lip balm. The lip balms are packaged in a very cute mini matchbox and there are a heap of awesome designs to chose from. The lip balms contain approximately 3g of product each and are said to last around 2-3 months depending on your usage. 

The lip balms are all handmade and contain no harmful preservatives. The ingredients are as follows: coconut oil, honey, beeswax, sweet almond oil, evening primrose oil, vitamin e, essential/flavour oils, mica. 

I really love the scents of these, they smell like the real fruit and not that strong fake smell that you can sometimes get.  I find that the balms are very hydrating on my lips and leave a nice glossy look as well. I would not recommend applying these balms before lipstick as they do seem a bit oily on the lips and so I feel like my lipstick would just slip off. But these are perfect for non lipstick days (which is the majority of the time for me) plus they are the perfect size to just throw in your bag.

Twotreehouse is founded by the lovely Mayni Lim who is now based in Sydney. Twotreehouse sells a range of items, which includes lip balms, bracelets, candles (the candles look absolutely gorgeous) and sugar scrubs. There is actually a funny story behind how the lip balms came to be, Mayni accidentally purchased beeswax by mistake and decided not to waste it and came up with the idea of lip balms!

The Matchbox Lip Balms retail for $15AU and can be found on the twotreehouse website here (with FREE shipping worldwide), or alternatively they are sold at 30 boutiques across Australia.

February Favourites

Hey Guys

I am so sorry I have been a bit absent from my blog. This post is about 3 weeks late but I figured I should post it regardless! My life has been taken over with tests and assignments and it has just been a little crazy. Which is why I want to try and dedicate some time to my blog so that I can have my own little escape from reality! 

February went by so quickly, I started College and it just flew by, I can't believe I am practically half way through my course, which means all of the assessments are about to become a lot more difficult and more frequently due :( 

Makeup wise I have only been wearing makeup once or twice a week when I go to work or catch up with friends. I have my firm favourites however which I stuck to during February. 

Bad to the Bronze is my go to eyeshadow if I need something that will last all day and is super easy to do, one swipe over the lids and blended and my eyes look fantastic! Highly recommend these color tattoo's if you are looking for something easy that looks great. These retail for $11.95AU.

Sadly this cant be bought instore in Australia, I purchased mine off ASOS where it retails for around $15.50 AU but can often be found on sale. I really love this bronzing powder, it is a great colour that warms up my skin and if I am feeling lazy I will use it for a little bit of contour as well. This smells like cocoa as well which I think is great, you can't tell once it is on your skin though, just in the pan.

I have three of these lip lacquers but I think that my favourite shade would be celestial which is a lovely deep but soft pink shade. The new matte versions are now out but honestly I think that they would not work for me, my lips are super dry and I can even find these drying on my lips sometimes. This formula lasts a long time on my lips, a bit shorter with eating and drinking but better than most other formulas I own. These retail for $15.95 AU. 

I think this is honestly my favourite brow product. I have the shade 02 Brown which is slightly dark and red for me but because I dye my hair it works. My left brow has quite a few patches of hair missing and this just helps fill in those gaps. This retails for $3.05 AU and is an absolute steal if you can find a shade match.

I am so sorry if I have gone on and on about this product but I absolutely adore it. I have been using this practically every time I wear makeup to set and finish my makeup but I have barely made a dent in this. I own two shades, soft focus and photo ready. Soft focus is not listed on the website and is a similar colour to photo ready but not exactly the same. I prefer soft focus as I find it gives a glow to my makeup like I have been airbrushed. I definitely recommend picking this up, it retails for $16.99 AU but will be on sale in next weeks Priceline 40% off cosmetics sale. Run don't walk. 

This was everything I really loved in February. Sorry it was so late! I will try to be better with my March Favourites :)

Review: Daniel Sandler Watercolour Fluid Blush

Hey Guys

I wanted to share with you this lovely innovative blush created by Daniel Sandler which is called the Watercolour Fluid Blush. This blush is amazing, you need one tiny drop to do a whole cheek, I believe that this bottle (as long as it doesn't spoil) will last me a lifetime. Daniel says -
I chose a silicone based oil free formulation as it doesn't clog pores and suits every skin type. The silicone makes it virtually rub-off proof plus water-resistant. Lifts all skin types with an instant radiance. This is a liquid blush that is simple to blend and build up colour. 

I had heard really good things about these blushes and was intrigued to try them out for myself. At $30 they aren't exactly the cheapest blush but I found them on sale on ASOS a while back and could not resist finally trying them. I am so glad that I did. I was originally concerned that the blush would sit on top of my oily skin and rub away which is what I find with most cream formulas.

 However I find that this formula blends down to an almost powder finish, or it just blends in really well and doesn't feel like it is just sitting on top of my foundation and powder. I use my fingers to blend this blush in as I find that you do not have a long time to blend it in before it sets and the brushes I own are not effective at blending it in time. You do also have to shake the product before you use it as it can separate. 

Blended Swatch of Cherub
I picked up the shade Cherub (their number one best seller) which is described as 'a delicate sheer, pastel pink that's perfect for fair/medium skin tones that the daintiest, youthful flush of colour.' There is a large range of colours to choose from however.

The only small issue I have with this blush is that it is huge! I would have much preferred buying a smaller one, an option which is offered on the Daniel Sandler website but not on ASOS sadly!

Have you tried anything from Daniel Sandler?

First Impressions: BUB Scrubs Coffee Scrub*

Hey Guys

Today I wanted to share with you a first impressions with a product that I have only used once, BUB Scrubs Coffee Scrub*. Coffee scrubs are currently all the rage and I was yet to jump on the band wagon as I was happy using my normal body scrubs and I was also trying not to get sucked into buying anything thanks to my spending ban. But when I was given the opportunity to try out one of their vegan and animal cruelty free scrubs by the lovely Shauna I could not resist. 

I received the coconut coffee scrub which obviously smells like coconut and coffee which I really like, it is quite a strong smell and I know that some people are not a fan of either coffee and coconut but I love both of them and they work well together. BUB Scrubs do offer an alternative to the coconut however which is green apple, I think that this would be quite an interesting smell. 

The ingredients are:

Roasted & Ground Arabica Coffee Beans: will target cellulite, stretch marks, psoriasis, varicose veins, eczema & acne.
Jojoba Beads, Brown Sugar & Sea Salt: will help smooth out any lumps and bumps you may have.
Grapeseed Oil & Coconut Oil: will moisturise & hydrate your delicate skin & tend to any imperfections.
Vitamins & Minerals: make you feel fresh & new.
Coconut Essence: will have you smelling & feeling great.

My main concerns before using this scrub were cellulite, stretch marks and acne. Obviously none of these will go away after just one scrub but I was hopeful that I would see some small result or at the least very soft smooth skin!

The directions on the back of the packet are:

Shower/Bathe your body as usual
Grab two small handfuls of Bub Coffee Scrub
Rub and scrub in a circular motion then let dry for 5-10 minutes
Rinse off the Bub Coffee Scrub leaving you to feel refreshed & clean 

Wow. I should have jumped on the bandwagon ages ago! My skin felt super soft after using this, I definitely think it was because of the oils contained in this scrub rather than the scrubbing action because I was actually quite careful to not scrub too much. Granted this is extremely messy to use and can make your bathroom look like you rolled around in dirt before showering it off, but the positives of using this scrub far outweighs the negative of a messy bathroom. I did also find it a little difficult to hang around for 5-10 minutes with the scrub left on my body but the longer you leave it the better you will feel afterwards. Be prepared for silky smooth skin that lasts well into the next day.

To purchase either of the scrubs you can email them at, there is a website ( however this is currently down. This scrub retails for $18.95 AU but can often be found on sale.

Review: Korres Pomegranate Lip Butter

Hey Lovelies

I wanted to share with you today my thoughts on this Korres Lip Butter in the shade/flavour pomegranate. I purchased this while on my holiday at a discount beauty store for only $5 AUD. I have seen these on ASOS for around $15 AUD before so I was surprised to see them so cheap. I was unsure whether it was fake or old or something along those lines but I figured it was worth trying for just $5. And I am so glad that I did.

The packaging is a plastic pot with a screw on lid, not the most hygienic of products so I would never take mine out in my handbag because I would prefer to use it at home when I have clean hands and can wash my hands after using it. There seems to be a decent amount of product inside so I think that this will last me a while as long as it stays clean. 

I actually really love this lip butter. I find it is very mositurising and doesn't leave me with dried up patches later like a lot of other lip products do to me. It also leaves a nice pinky/red tint to my lips and also a bit of a glossy look. I do love this product but I am not sure if I would pay the full $15 for it!

January Favourites

Hey Lovelies

It is that time of month again where I share with you my favourites. This month is all beauty related, surprise surprise! My skin has been really horrible lately so I cant say that I have been enjoying using any of my products. I also recently got a haircut so I am still experimenting with my hair and will probably need to purchase some new hair styling products as I never really felt the need to use anything with my old hair style. Onto my most loved things of the month!

I purchased this only in January and I have been absolutely loving it. I do have a blog post coming on it soon. But mainly it moisturises my lips whilst also adding a lovely my lips but better colour. I purchased mine at a discount beauty store but I know that you can get this on ASOS for $15.50 AU (currently on sale). 

I absolutely love this powder, it has now become my daily setting powder and has completely smashed my Rimmel Stay Matte and Nude By Nature Finishing Veil out of the competition. This adds a lovely blurred photoshop finish to my makeup. I own two out of the three shades but soft focus is definitely my favourite of the two. These retail for $16.99 AU at Priceline. 

Sadly I do not have a lot of information on this product as it is not listed on any websites and doesn't even have a shade name! I purchased this from Kmart for $2 AU and I believe it is Kmart's own beauty range called, OXX, in which everything is $2. I was not expecting a lot from this $2 quad but all of the shades are very pigmented and quite a soft blendable texture. The packaging is nothing special but perfect for travel. 

I purchased this blush for $10 AU in I believe Topshop's end of year clearance sale. I really love this blush, I have two shades, this one is Do It Again which is quite a wearable shimmery peachy pink. This is quite pigmented so I make sure to use a fluffy brush and dust off any excess. 

I purchased this mascara on a whim whilst in Daiso in Melbourne. I was so amazed by the entire store so I kind of got swept up and purchased a lot of stuff. I have been using this mascara almost every day since I got it. It is my perfect every day mascara, no clumping whatsoever and adds subtle length to my stubby lashes. I am not sure about their claim of high curling however, I just find this adds length but does nothing whatsoever about curling my lashes. Being from Daiso this was $2.80 AU. 

What have you been loving this month?

Priceline 40% off Skincare, Suncare & Tanning Haul

Hey Lovelies

A quick impromptu post today regarding my Priceline haul from yesterday. Priceline currently have 40% off Skincare, Suncare and Tanning items which ends today! It is online and instore however so if you don't have a chance to go in person get online. I am trying to be restrained with my purchases at the moment so I was good and only purchased three items, two back ups and one new item that was recommended by some lovely ladies. 

This was a recommendation from some ladies on an instagram beauty facebook group and I was told that this is great for acne. I sadly am still suffering from spots that turn into horrible scars. This is a natural treatment so I am hoping that it wont break me out! I am excited to try out this product and I will give you my thoughts on it once I have properly tested it. This retails for $26.99 AU for 30g but was on sale for $16.19 AU. 

I am just about to finish my first tub of this cream and so I jumped at the chance of purchasing this again whilst on sale. I really like this cream, it contains sacilyic acid which is great for my acne prone skin. It is also oil free and non-comedogenic so I find that it does not break me out which is rare for my skin. This retails for $19.99 AU for 50g which does last a couple months for me, but was on sale for $11.99 AU. 

I really really love this toner, this is my third bottle as I have just opened up my second bottle so this sale came at a perfect time to grab another one. This is a huge 250ml bottle so it does last a long time but I use it day and night religiously so it is necessary to have a back up but I have always managed to find it on sale. This retails for an inexpensive $14.99 AU but was on sale for $8.99 AU. 

Did you pick up anything in the sale?

Just a Little Bit of Liz Project Pan

Hey Guys

I know that Project Pan is an idea that has been around for quite a while and I have seen many posts regarding it. I have decided to try and participate in my own kind of project pan, mainly as this year is going to be quite money tight for me and so I wont have a lot of extra money to put towards my beauty spending habits. Ultimately I don't think I really need to purchase a tonne of makeup this year as I have a lot of current makeup that I need to use up. I think I have around ten open foundations which I think is crazy as two years ago I think I may have had one or two. 

I find it really hard to actually use up my beauty products, I have so many that I can use a different product every day and be fine for quite a while. I at least would like to try and use up some of my foundations and eye shadows, and then get better at using up things like blush which I have a million of and I don't think any of them are close to hitting pan! For my project pan I am not setting a limit on how many items I want to use up as I know that I would struggle to use up many products. 

As a result of my limited spending you will probably mainly see posts such as empties, reviews of things I already own and recently rediscovered type posts. I will try to be creative and think of some new kinds of posts to keep you guys interested. 

Have you ever been involved in project pan?

WOMF #01

Hey Lovelies

I thought today I would share with you a WOMF post, otherwise known as what is on my face. 

I used the Loreal Infallible Liquid Foundation which I have been enjoying using lately. It is a tad too dark for my current colour but I am able to work with it. I find that this is quite heavy coverage and does last all day on my oily skin. I also used the Rimmel London Wake Me Up Concealer, I really love this concealer and if I didnt have about another 5 different kinds of concealer waiting to be opened I would definitely purchase a back up. It covers really well and does not crease. Next I applied my Topshop Powder Blush in Let Her Go with a big fluffy brush. This blush is very pigmented so I make sure to brush off any excess pigment on my brush and apply with a light touch. I set everything with my Models Prefer Soft Touch Mineral Powder in Soft Glow which I adore, it blurs my skin and makes everything look like it has an instagram filter on top!

I used my trusty Kmart OXX Eye Quad which cost a ridiculous $2. I really like this quad, I find that these are the perfect everyday colours and while they do not last all day and night they last long enough for an average day for me. I then used my Essence Bloom Me Up Duo Eye Pencil to line my waterline, unfortunately this was LE but any nude pencil will do in brightening the eye area. I then curled my lashes and applied my much loved Rimmel London Wonder'full Mascara which makes my lashes darker and slightly longer without clumping and without any extreme spider lashes. I know a lot of people dislike this mascara as it doesn't do very much, but for my short stubby lashes this is perfect for a subtle everyday look. 

Keeping it simple I used my Korres Lip Butter in Pomegranate which adds a light red sheen to my lips, this is also super moisturising and doesn't leave those dried up bits on my lips afterwards (how awful is that, happens all the time to my poor dry lips).

Holiday Haul

Hey Guys

I am back!! Did you miss me? I got home from my holiday a few days ago and have been recuperating and unpacking. I bought a lot of things, all we did for the week was shop, and it was lovely. And I wanted to quickly share with you some of the makeup purchases with you today. Sadly I haven't had a chance to try anything out yet but I am very much looking forward to it.
