When I first started my blog I did a review of the orange lipsticks that I had in my collection. At that time orange lipsticks weren't as popular as they are now and they were pretty hard to track down, so I only had a handful. Ever since I did that post, my collection of orange lipsticks has grown. Orange is my favourite lipstick shade, and I thought I would swatch all the shades that I could track down (I think I have a few more in my collection that are MIA) and also mention which shades are my top 5 picks.

I stumbled across this gem a few weeks ago when I was sent it to trial... I hadn't ever heard anything about OFRA Cosmetics so I was curious to give it a go.

With Mothers Day coming up in two weeks time, I thought that I will randomly feature some Mothers Day gift ideas on my blog. I thought I would start with a limited edition candle, that I found in David Jones a couple of weeks ago, and that I am utterly obsessed with!

Rarely can I justify buying a whole collection of nail polishes, so I was very lucky to be send the new Shattered Star collection of nail varnish by Illamasqua. I was almost squealing with job when I received these, because if you have read my blog for any period of time, you would know that Illamasqua is one of my absolute favourite brands!

I was lucky enough to be invited to a Mary Kay Melbourne bloggers event a few weeks ago, and they gave us the new Fairytales and Fantasy Fall Colour Collection to take home and try out. I have been having a play with these products over the last few weeks and I am finally ready to share my thoughts!

One thing that sucks about living in Melbourne is that most PR companies and blogger events happen in Sydney. The PR company that works with Burt's Bees were holding an event in Sydney, but they were lovely enough to send me a gift pack with all of the Burt's Bees most popular products because I couldn't make it to the event. I thought that was so sweet of them, and this is by far the most impressive PR box that I have received to date, so I thought I would share it with you and also give a quick review of each of the products.

Be prepare for some nail posts coming up in the next few weeks! I was huge into nail art/feature nails/nail stamping etc about a year ago, but since I started (and now finished) my Post Grad Diploma that I did last year, I was lucky to get around to doing my nails at all!

To celebrate the last day of "drugstore week" on my blog, I thought I would try something different today and do a bright eye look featuring a couple of Max Factor products. I haven't tried these products before so it's a bit of a demonstration/first impressions post.

In the theme of my "drugstore week" on my blog, I have decided to do a bulk review of some Covergirl makeup I was sent recently... yes I was sent it, but I am happy to give my honest review (as per usual). Most of these are new products to the Covergirl line, so I was keen to put them to the test!

I am sure that everyone knows that I am a fan of Real Techniques brushes (check out my iherb haul here). The latest offers from Real Techniques are two retractable brushes (a lip brush and a bronzer brush) as well as the Miracle Complexion Sponge and a Silicon Liner Brush.

I feel like lately my blog has been mainly full of reviews of higher end products; like the Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette, Lime Crime swatches, and the Ambient Lighting Blushes by Hourglass. I have decided to dedicate this week to reviewing some of the drug store makeup that I have been buying lately. I have been buying quite a lot of drugstore makeup, but I keep forgetting to review it!

I haven't had a Wantable box for months now, but I was randomly looking at openings for Jan and Feb on YouTube and I thought that they had lifted their game, so I decided to resubscribe.

I had a really good March, the weather is getting a bit cooler and more comfortable, I caught up with a lot of friends, and I managed to go to a few blogging events. Most of my favourites (everything except for one lipstick) are new products that I either randomly picked up or products that I got from events like Salon Melbourne or product launches.

Onto my favourites...
