MAC Dressmaker, Dressmaker


I am so sorry I haven't been blogging as much as I had hoped. My holidays so far have been crazy busy.

Anyway, MAC Dressmaker, Dressmaker lipstick is my first MAC lipstick EVER! I got it about a few weeks back and this baby costs $35 AUD. It is from the Prêt-à-Papier Collection. I walked into MAC with absolutely no intention on buying anything but I could not pass up this lipstick. I talked to the mua about nudish pale pink lips. (By nude I mean more pale as opposed to being an "erase-your-lips" colour.) She suggested that with my skintone, I should have a go at more orangey tones. She tried this on me and I was just AMAZED! I am a huge fan of Revlon lipsticks and low end lipsticks in general and I have never come across a colour like this.

On me this lipstick is a beautiful pale peach colour with a hint of coral. It basically looks like the perfect peachy nude on me. It is a bit sheer for my liking as I have fairly pigmented mauvey-rosey lips. But it is a lustre after all. Either way I still love it, not as crazy as when the mua tried it on me in the store (I think the lighting in there makes everything look amazing lol) but I still really really like it.

I tried to take photos of the lipstick on my lips but my camera just wouldn't pick up the right colour and the dreadful weather did not help.

I would love to buy more MAC products in the future but they are very expensive here so I will probably have to wait a while.

What was your first ever MAC lipstick? and what is your favourite?

Having a Good Hair Day

Hey guys! I'm back!

Exams are over and I am absolutely exhausted. Looks like I won't be getting too much rest. So many plans for the holidays already plus my shifts at work have increased. But better to be tired from having too much fun right?

Anyway just thought I would share with you my brand new toy, my GHD!

My sister bought me a GHD as a belated birthday present. I know right...what an awesome present =) She bought me the GHD Pretty in Pink Limited Edition Box Set. It is just so pretty! and the pinkness is so me! lol

It is so smooth and just glides through your hair. It is just amazing at curling. I'm actually finding it a tad difficult to control when curling at the moment since I had adopted a technique that required a lot of wrist twisting and effort that worked with my old straightener (Remington Wet2Straight) which gripped and pulled on your hair a lot. So it feels a bit odd and a little hard to adjust to the fact that I barely have to use any effort at all now with my GHD lol.

One thing I really wanted to talk about with GHDs was all those blogs, sites and videos telling you how to spot a fake. Many of these sources contradict each other and so are not very clear or reliable. All GHDs are made differently depending on what country they are intended to be sold at. My sister bought mine from a highly respected hair salon here in Australia and I had no problems with registering it at all. Mine did not have a couple of features that these sources mentioned that all "authentic" GHDs must have. Don't just read a review and immediately strike out yours as being a fake. The only way to be sure you are getting what you pay for is by either contacting GHD directly to check the seller or just buying it from a large and respected retailer.

Anyway that is enough of a rant from me tonight lol

What I've Been Dreading...


The time has finally come. Semester 1 is over and that means exam time. My exams will be going from the 14-24 June. So just wanted to let you guys know why I will be disappearing for the next few weeks.

I have been really behind on all my blog posts and I apologise for that. But now they are going to be even more behind because of exams plus winter has arrived and I just caught a cold grr.

Hopefully, if I survive the coming weeks, I will be back, fresh and ready to take on blog world and shower you with many many posts even if they are very old lol.

Hope everyone is going well and surviving uni, school, work or whatever it is that life is throwing at you. Can't wait for holidays!

I will be back in a few short weeks =)
