May 2013 | KITSCH/SNITCH

It's favourites time! I have been buying trying a lot of new things this month but oddly enough I have been loving some old favourites this month... maybe because I have had so many new things, that I haven't really been able to use each thing enough to really love them yet. I have also been loving life in general this month, it was my birthday, I went to Japan, it was my mums birthday and I got accepted into a training program for next semester - woot woot! Aaaanyway, onto the favourites.

Garnier BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector for Combination to Oily Skin in the shade Light mixed with Revlon Age Defying concealer in the shade Medium: This is an old favourite, and I think I stopped using it to start using up some half finished foundation, but I brought this overseas so I have rediscovered my love for it. I brought this traveling because it is really light weight and comfortable to wear, and it leaves my skin matte all day without needing to touch it up. I have had periods of bad skin this month, so I started mixing this with a bit of Revlon Age Defying concealer, and I have been loving the combination! Mixed with concealer, this BB Cream is still light weight and matte, but gives a bit more coverage and is the perfect base for my skin. I know most people don't want to waste their concealer this way, but I am trying to use this concealer up so it doesn't bother me. Once I use it up I might start mixing a heavier coverage foundation with this BB Cream. See original review of this BB Cream here.

Bourjois Eyeshadow in the shade 08: I have been loving this eyeshadow this month! I bought this in a pack a while ago (see post here) and I never use it, but I have been reaching for this a lot as a mutipurpose highlighting product. I use this as a face highlight, an inner corner highlight and a brow bone highlight. This eyeshadow is really finely milled so it gives the skin a nice glow without looking glittery, and it lasts a long time. See swatch of this later in this post. 

Jurlique Rose Hand Cream: I got this in this months Bellabox (see post here). I really like this hand cream, it is a really thick hand cream but doesn't feel greasy. I love thick hand creams, and this one is just really nice to use. I am not the biggest fan of the Rose scent, but it is tolerable - this also comes in lavender and citrus, and if I were to buy this again I would buy the citrus. 

Kosmea Rosehip Oil: This is my holy grail rosehip oil, I find that it keeps my oily skin balanced and prevents me from getting spots. My mum also loves this because it makes her skin firmer, and I know that other people love it for hydrating the skin. This is an expensive rosehip oil but it is the best, and I recently found out that it is available at Chemist Warehouse (unlike previously when it was only available at places like David Jones). Not only is it now easier to buy, but it is also more likely to be on sale... and since Chemist Warehouse had a good sale this month I got to pick up a 42ml back up bottle of this for $25 instead of $45. Love this oil!

Bourjois Healthy Balance Unifying Powder in the shade 52: When I originally bought this powder (see review here), I bought it in the shade 53 which was the shade that matched my Bourjois foundation. I really loved the powder, but strangely the shade 53 ended up applying way too dark once it hit the foundation. When I bought this powder again in my Priceline haul (see post here) I bought it in the lightest shade and I love it! It is super soft, gives good coverage, and is the perfect shade for my skin. I bought this at the end of April and I have already hit pan. When this goes on sale again, I will stock up.

Mario Badescu Drying Lotion: This is my savior this month! I had some mega bad breakouts when I first went on holidays, I blame the planes etc, and luckily I packed this drying lotion last minute. I applied this to my spots for the first few nights of my holiday and it cleared up all of my nasty painful spots, and I went from not wanting to be in photos to not worrying at all. I love this stuff! See my review of this product here.

Lorac Fierce eyeshadow: This is my most used eyeshadow this month, it is the perfect shimmery nude shade for me... its not too light and frosty like most "nude" shades I come across, and it is really pigmented and doesn't need a primer for it to stay on all day. I pretty much used this shadow everyday when I was on holidays because it is just so quick and easy to apply for a fast makeup look. See swatch below, and see review of this palette here.

Revlon nail polish in Heavenly: I haven't reviewed this nail polish yet, but I can't wait to! I bought this in Japan and it is such a pretty glitter polish, and sadly it's not available in Australia. It is a clear base with heaps of clear iridescent glitter and just makes any nail polish look amazing. Stay tuned for a full review.

Lancome Hipnose Star mascara: I got this mascara sample in a Lust Have It box earlier this year (see post here) and I only started to use it this month. I love this mascara, I am not the biggest fan of the shape of the brush, but besides that it is perfect! It is really thick and volumising and I no longer need to layer two mascaras to get a bold effect - this does it all on its own. If you love thick mascara, but you don't like it too clumpy, then this is perfect or you... it packs on the mascara without clumping your lashes. Once I finish the unopened mascaras that I have as backups, I will be more than happy to fork out the money for this mascara.

Maybelline ColorSensational Vivid in Vibrant Mandarin: I love this shade of lipstick, it is a stunning bright orangey red that is right up my alley! It is a conformable, pigmented and easy to apply... but it doesn't last very long. Nevertheless, I love the shade and this is my favourite alternative to a red lip this month. See full review of my ColorSensational Vivids here.

May 2013 Favourites

So that's it for my favourites this month! I also had a few random favouites and fails, but if you want to check those out, you can watch my Favourites and Fails video that filmed earlier today!



I bought this nail polish during the Chemist Warehouse sale (which ends in 2 days!). They are having 50% off all makeup and nail products, so this was $6.95 but I bought it for $3.47... I should have bought a few more! I went for Pacific Blue, because it is a really stunning cornflower blue shade, and it is raved about online so I wanted to see what all of the fuss was about!


This shade is a bright mid toned blue that has a hint of purple to it. Sadly the photos make this look a bit brighter and bluer than what it looks like in real life, but take my word for it when I say that it is a really fun colour that would suit warmer weather and cooler weather.


One thing that I wanted to quickly mention is that I love the shape of this brush! This is the first of the Xtreme Wear range of nail polishes that I own, and this is my new favourite brush shape. What I like about it is that it is the same size as normal nail polish brushes, but instead of flaring out at the end, it is straight up and down (does anyone know what I mean?). What I personally like about this is that I find that it allows for more of an accurate application than the flared brushes.


BAM! Here's the colour! This is two coats and a top coat, but this polish is opaque in one coat. Like I said before, it is hard to capture the true shade on camera but this will have to do. In real life this is slightly more muted and has a slightly more purple hint to it. If you get to see this nail polish in store, the colour in the bottle is a good representation of how it ends up looking on the nails.


I was really excited to buy this nail polish, until I got home and I realised that it is almost identical to Face Of Australia's Ocean Villa. This shade is no longer available, so if you missed out on getting Ocean Villa, Pacific Blue is a pretty close dupe. I would say that Pacific Blue has a tiny bit more white in it, giving it a more pastel look and making it more opaque, and it also looks like it has a more purple tint to it. I personally like the Pacific Blue shade more, but when you have it on your nails, they both look very similar.

I don't yet know how well this nail polish lasts without chipping, but all of the other Sally Hansen nail polishes that I own can easily last a few days without wear and tear, and 4-5 days if you wear it with a good top coat.

What do you think of this shade? Are there any other shades from this range that you recommend?

Whats on my nails - Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in 420 Pacific Blue

It's about time I write a review! I feel as though my blog has been full of openings and hauls lately, but I started this blog to do reviews. I think since I have bought a bunch of new makeup and skincare lately, I am overwhelmed by new things and I am still trying to test things and figure out what to review first!

Anyway, I bought these Maybelline ColorSensational Vivids back when Priceline was having 40% off makeup (see haul here). Normally these cost $16.95, but I got these for $10.17 each. This new-ish range from Maybelline was very tempting for me because I love bright lipstick of all types, but as I have so many lipsticks, I did resist the urge to buy these for quite a while. The main reason I decided to buy them (besides the sale), was because Temptalia gave this range a rating of A, which sparked my interest... are they worth an A?

Heads up, there is a buy 3 for 2 sale at Priceline at the moment for Maybelline products. Also these are half price at Chemist Warehouse for the next few days.


The packaging is the same as the normal ColorSensational range, which has the clear coloured square plastic lid. This range has the same neon orange/red colour for the packaging, but the sticker on the bottom of the tube shows a pretty accurate colour of the lipstick shade. Originally I didn't see why they couldn't just make the tube colour the same as the lipstick shade, but after a while I decided that I like that the same packaging shade makes the range seem more unified. Oh and as a side note, if I were to pick a shade that matched the tube colour the best, I would say that the tube is most like the shade Vibrant Mandarin.

So one thing that I love about this range is that they actually have a lot of colours... sure, we might not have all of the shades that the US has, but we do have eight shades available and they have a baby pink, a neon pink, a fuchsia, a dark pink, corals, oranges, a purple and a red. I think they pretty much covered all the brights that people generally want out of a range... but I think in the US they have another more purple toned shade available and at least another red.

I originally picked just Vibrant Mandarin because it was a really me shade... I love orange lips, but I thought this was a more wearable orange because it has a hint of red. After buying this shade I kept thinking about the Hot Plum shade, because I am also a sucker for a purple, so I went back and bought it... and then I bought Shocking Coral because everyone seems to love this shade.

l-r Hot Plum, Shocking Coral, Vibrant Mandarin

Look how lovely they are in the tube! I do think that the Hot Plum and the Vibrant Mandarin is quite true to the bullet colour, but I think Shocking Coral applies much more pink on the lips and does lose its coral tint when applied.

All of these lipsticks are quite pigmented, but they also have a pretty thin formula and they can be applied more sheerly like a stain... definitely not a lipstick that deposits a lot of creamy product onto your lips, however they are really comfortable and aren't drying. My only problem with them is that since they are quite thin and because they don't have any white pigment in them to make the colour really pop, they can fade pretty quickly and can lose their vibrancy within an hour, and almost instantly if you eat or drink wearing these. Other than that, these are really light weight, comfortable, and easy to wear. A great introduction to bright lipsticks if you haven't tried them before.


Hot Plum: I love a purple lip, and this is the most purple shade that is available in the range that has been brought out in Australia. This is a mid toned fuchsia and I love this shade, it is bold and pigmented and not at all streaky. This does have a strong pink tone, and after a bit of wear this ends up looking more dark pink than purple. Nevertheless, it is my second favourite shade of the three that I have.

As a quick example of how well these lipsticks wear... this is a photo of Hot Plum around 1 hour after application, and this is without eating or drinking





Shocking Coral: This is a very hyped up shade, and whenever you hear people mention these Vivids, you often hear people mentioning Shocking Coral. Even though this is a pretty colour, it is my least favourite of the three. This is a bright yellow toned pink, and in person this applies much more pink on the lips than in the tube. This is also the sheerest of the three, and it fades the quickest. When this fades it fades to a more muted mid toned pink. I also think that this isn't as creamy as the other two, and it can cling to dry patches. I still like this shade, but I think I will wear it over a coral lip tar just to keep the colour popping for longer.



Vibrant Mandarin: Ah, this is my baby! This is the first one I bought, and it is my favourite. I bought this shade because I love orange toned lipsticks, but this has a nice red tone and it almost looks like a modern take on a red. This is the shade that keeps its brightness the longest, and it fades into a really nice bright coral shade. This is what I think is the best match for the packaging of these lipsticks.

Vibrant Mandarin reminds me a lot of MAC's Morange (which is my all time favourite lipstick) so I decided to do swatch comparisons below.

l-r Vibrant Mandarin, Morange

From the swatches above, you can see that both Vibrant Mandarin and Morange have the same finish and the same intensity, but Morange is more orange toned whereas Vibrant Madarin is more of a neon red. I think Morange is more opaque than Vibrant Mandarin, and must have some white base to it, as the colour builds up quicker and lasts longer. I love both of these lipsticks and I think they are a great statement lipstick for a night out and a great pop of colour for a day time look with a nude eye.

Overall I do like these lipsticks, but I think the quality does vary slightly from shade to shade. They are light-weight, comfortable, easy to apply, and give a nice bright lip, however they do have quite a thin formula that wears off pretty quicky, and the vibrancy doesn't last very long. If you like an easy bright lip without any hassle of wearing a matte formula or applying a product like a lip tar, then this is a good option for you, but if you want a bold lip that will last all night then these aren't what you are looking for. I personally love to throw these in my handbag for when I want to add a pop of colour without any fuss, but I wouldn't reach for these for a night out... unless I apply them over a lip pencil or a lip tar. Are these sensational? Well, they aren't my favourite lipsticks formula, but I do find myself reaching for them often.

Are Maybelline ColorSensational Vivids actually sensational? Hot Plum, Shocking Coral and Vibrant Mandarin

I am finally getting around to doing my Japan haul! I was in Japan for two weeks, and I was planning on buying a few Japanese makeup products while I was there, but to be honest Japanese stores can be a little hectic and confusing so I mainly just stuck to high end brands that were in department stores. Makeup in Japan isn't as cheap as the US, but it is definitely a lot cheaper than in Australia.

I also did a haul video, which I will instert at the end of this post.


The first things I picked up were from Shu Uemura, which is the only Japanese brand I bought. I bought the Skin Purifer Cleansing Oil in the 450ml bottle. I am coming to the end of the current Shu Uemura Fresh (pink bottle) Cleansing Oil that I am using at the moment, and I was really happy to buy this in Japan because it cost around $75, which is $30 cheaper than in Australia, and if I had to pay $105 to replace my current bottle then I probably would have put it off for quite some time. I decided to try the Purifier version instead of getting the Fresh one, because I initially bought the Fresh version (which is for oily blemish prone skin) because I was worried that my oily combination skin won't respond well to a heavier cleansing oil... now that I know that my skin is fine with it, I decided to go for the original Purifier version. A large bottle of this oil will last me around a year.

I also decided to pick up a Shu Uemura eyelash curler, as these are raved about by people like Lisa Eldridge. These cost $40 in Australia but this cost around $12-$13 in Japan. I haven't used this yet, but I will probably review it some time soon. The people at the Shu Uemura counter also threw in a little sample pack of four cleansing oils. It's actually quite fun sampling each different oil.

I picked up two Revlon mini nail polishes while the boyfriend was buying mouthwash at a pharmacy. These cost $7 each and I got the shades 430 Whimsical and 77 Heavenly. Both these shades are not available in Australia so I was excited to try them. I am currently wearing Whimsical and to be perfectly honest, I find that it is too sheer. I am wearing 4 layers of it and it's not super impressive. I will have to do reviews of these polishes soon.

MUFE Aqua Brow, BB Lilac Sparkle Eye Shadow, NARS Luster, Albatross and Mekong

While I was in Tokyo I saw a Make Up For Ever stand in a department store. I have never ever seen MUFE in any store so I was pretty happy swatching and trying each product. I ultimately only bought one thing, mainly because I didn't want to blow my budget in the first week of my holiday, but I ended up getting the Aqua Brow in the shade 25. This is a product that has been on my shopping list for ages because I love brow products and this is quite a unique product... and its also waterproof! I will definitely review this when I have worn it more. This cost $30.

Whenever I was in a department store and I saw a Bobbi Brown counter, I had to swatch the Lilac Sparkle Eye Shadow from the Spring Lilac Rose collection. This is not an eyeshadow that I would normally buy, but it was so pretty and I kept thinking about it after I left the store, so I ended up going back and getting it. It cost $32, but costs $44 in Australia.

Lastly I went to NARS with the intention of buying a blush. I had a short list of a few blushes but decided in store to get the Blush in Luster, mainly because I don't have any peachy blush shades in my collection. I also decided to get the Highlighting Blush in Albatross because I was looking up NARS reviews and a lot of people were saying that if you were to get one cheek product by NARS, it should be Albatross. Each of these cost $30, instead of $45 which is what they cost in Australia.

I wasn't planning on getting an eyeshadow, but while I was swatching the blushes, I was fell in love with the eye shadow in Mekong! It is so pigmented and beautiful and you can always use a warm shimmery brown in your collection! Eyeshadows normally cost $39 in Australia, but this cost $25 in Japan.

Here is my haul video!



So that's all the makeup I bought, I really wish I bought more NARS products since each product is only $1 more than what they charge in the US! Ah well, I will save up more money for next time I visit Japan!

Japan Haul

May 22, 2013


I am finally getting around to doing my Japan haul! I was in Japan for two weeks, and I was planning on buying a few Japanese makeup products while I was there, but to be honest Japanese stores can be a little hectic and confusing so I mainly just stuck to high end brands that were in department stores. Makeup in Japan isn't as cheap as the US, but it is definitely a lot cheaper than in Australia.

I also did a haul video, which I will instert at the end of this post.


The first things I picked up were from Shu Uemura, which is the only Japanese brand I bought. I bought the Skin Purifer Cleansing Oil in the 450ml bottle.

So that's all the makeup I bought, I really wish I bought more NARS products since each product is only $1 more than what they charge in the US! Ah well, I will save up more money for next time I visit Japan!

I came home from Japan to my May Bellabox, and I was super excited to open it... I also filmed an opening video that you can watch here:


Anyway, if you aren't familiar with Bellabox, it is a monthly subscription box that costs $15 per month and you can sign up at the Bellabox website.


The theme for this months box is Beauty SOS... so I guess these are more of beauty essentials?


The box was pretty full this month, so full that the lid didn't even fit on the box properly! Below is the information card so you can see what was included and what the price of each item is.


Suigo Vital Nutrition Intensive Hair Repair Treatment - 100ml sample: I have tried the gold Ultimate Control version of this, and I really like it, so I was happy to see this sample in this months box. This sample is so huge that if you use this once a week, you will probably have enough to last you a good few months! This treatment is really thick and I use it when I am having a bath.

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo and Effaclar Foaming Gel - 3ml and 15ml samples: I have been wanting to try the Effaclar Duo for months and months, so I am super happy to see these samples! These are designed to clear the skin, remove impurities, and clear up oil... this is perfect for me! This also comes with a 20% off discount code for Terry White Chemist, but sadly the Effaclar Duo has already sold out on that site! I can forsee myself buying the full versions of both of these products!

Nanoblur - 2ml sample: I have no idea what this is, but it claims to make you look 10 years younger in 40 seconds. According to the info card, this refracts light to make skin look perfect. I will have to try this and add in a review.

Jurlique Rose Hand Cream - 40ml sample: This is a great size sample, and it is going straight into my handbag. I love good quality hand creams, especially in the colder months. This is a pretty pricey hand cream, with the 125ml version retailing for $57... which means that this sample is worth over $18!

Bloom Lip Stain in the shade Wine - full size product: This is a felt tip marker type lip stains, but this one has a much firmer and smoother applicator - its really strange but really cool! I love stains, and I also love this particular colour... I just hope this doesn't dry out as fast as other felt tip stains. I am really looking forward to getting a lot of use out of this!

Bloom Lip Stain in Wine

Manicare Duo Mascara Brushes - full size: I have never bothered buying disposable mascara wands, but I will no doubt use them to brush out my eyebrows or to remove clumps from my lashes. This is a pretty handy addition to the box!

Overall I am very happy with this box, I think it suits my beauty needs really well! I will definitely use everything this month. Well done Bellabox!

Hey guys! I have been a little absent with my posts since I am on holidays in Japan! I will no doubt get right back into blogging when I get home, but for now here are some Japan photos

I am a big fan of body scrubs, when I am having a bad day I really enjoy soaking in a bath with a hair mask and giving myself a good scrub. I have heard a lot about Soap and Glory scrubs, and there are a few available. I chose the Flake Away one, and I bought this from Kit Cosmetics for $16.95 for a large 300ml tub.


This is a body polish with shea butter, sweet almond oil, peach seed powder, sea salt and sugar and smells like the distinctive "original pink" Soap and Glory fragrance. The fragrance is really strong, so if you aren't a fan of perfumes, or a sensitive to perfumes, then don't use this! For everyone else, the scent is really devine! If you aren't familiar with the Soap and Glory fragrance, it is described by the Soap and Glory website as a modern, fresh, fruity and citrus scent that contains orange lead, lemon, peach, sweet strawberries, summer rose, gardenia blooms and jasmine. This scent is like a sweet/floral/soapy punch in the face... which I really enjoy!


The product itself is a thick scrub that contains a lot of salt crystals and some peach seed powder. When you rub this into your skin, the salt starts to dissolve and the shea butter and oils start to melt into your skin. This doesn't leave an oily residue on your skin, but it does leave your skin feeling quite moisturised. The scent also lingers a little, leaving your skin smelling really nice. Overall I really like this scrub, but I wish that it didn't dissolve so much because if you want a really thorough exfoliation, then you will need to use quite a lot of this.

You will love this if you love strong sweet scents and if you love a light scrub, but if you dislike the scent or you want a really strong scrub, then this may not be for you.

Have you tried this scrub or any other Soap and Glory scrubs?

During the Priceline 40% off sale (see my haul here), I bought these two Rimmel Scandaleyes liners. I love these things, I already have a black, a bronze, a taupe and a nude... and when I saw that there was a darker brown and a dark blue, I had to get them! I love brown liner and I like the concept of blue liner, but I need quite dark shades to be able to use them on my upper lash line. I thought that the only brown they had was the bronze, and the only blues they had were the baby blue and the electric blue shades, but I guess they brought out new (more wearable) shades. I bought these on sale for under $6 but they are usually $9.95.

Deep Blue one swipe and bold swatch, Brown one swipe and bold swatch

Deep Blue: So the Deep Blue is a matte shade, that almost has some black in it which gives a navy appearance. I really like this shade, but I was surprised to see that this wasn't as pigmented and creamy as all the other shades I have from this range. This does need some building up to make a really solid colour, and even though it easily applies to the waterline, it does look quite sheer, which takes away from the point of this dark shade.

Brown: This is a more successful shade, it is really creamy and is a nice rich chocolatey shade with some shimmer. You can see from the swatches above that this is bold and pigmented in one swipe. I decided to compare this with the Bronze shade below.


I bought the Bronze shade at the start of the year, and although I use it frequently on my waterline, it is a little too light for me to use on the upper lash line. I was really curious to see how Bronze and Brown compares.

Brown and Bronze swatched

From the swatches above, you can see that Brown is much darker and less shimmery than Bronze, and Bronze looks more gold toned. Brown is definitely more of a wearable liner if you are used to darker shades like black and dark brown. I like both of these shades, and they are different enough for me to need both!

Overall, I really like Brown, but sadly Deep Blue isn't as successful. I won't give up on Deep Blue, I will keep trying to use it but it isn't as creamy and pigmented as the other shades I have of these liners.

It was my birthday yesterday so I decided to do a little birthday haul post since I did get quite a few makeup products.

I got an Eyeshadow Brush and a Blending Brush by the new brush brand Master Makeup by Dean Nixon... I actually got this from a friend who got her engagement makeup done by Dean!

Then I got a bunch of makeup goodies from my friend who has a massive makeup collection and I love talking makeup with her. She got me:

Physicians Formula Matte Collection Quad Eye Shadow in the shade Quartz Quartet - these are really great quality matte shades, and I love them! I will probably review and swatch this in the next few weeks.
Lorac Blush in the shade Soul - This is a "your cheeks but better" blush... if that exists. It is a soft dusky rose with a slight shimmer to it, and it makes your cheeks look really pretty, but also natural. The best thing about this is that it is really pigmented and you don't need much product to have a strong (yet natural) cheek look, which is exactly what I like. I will probably review this in more detail when I get back from Japan.
OPI nail polish in the shade Tomorrow Never Dies - This is a really nice almost metallic purple shade and it's perfect for cooler weather. I will to a post about this in the near future.
Sephora Waterproof Smudge Liner - You probably can't see it very clearly in the photos above, but this is a liner that is black one end and brown the other end - genius! This is going straight in my handbag as it will come in handy for touching up any of my makeup looks!


Tarte Lights Camera Lashes! mini mascara - My friend added this is because it would be a great travel mascara, and I'm going away on Wednesday so this will come in handy... I am also keen to try out Tarte since you can't get Tarte in Australia!
Tarte 24.7 Natural Lip Sheer in the shade Tea Time - This is a chap stick type balm that has a berry tint to it, definitely a balm that I will use a lot of at work.
Lorac Couture Shine lip gloss in the shade Trend Setter - I am not the biggest lip gloss fan, mainly because it never lasts all that long, but this one is pretty thick and does last quite a while. It is also a really nice opaque light pink shade.


Then I got some Priceline vouchers from my lovely work buddy... I have never thought of buying someone Priceline vouchers, but it is a great idea!


Then I got two Cue dresses from my lovely Mum, and an iPad mini from my boyfriend! I also got money from other family members, which is perfect for shopping in Japan.

I was very spoilt this birthday! Next haul will be my Japan haul!
