Copper Eyeshadow Look // Maybelline Hyper-Diamonds palette

Hey There!

So in todays blog post i’m going to be showing you my most recent eye look i created. Which is really just a copper eye look, which i know copper is currently in trend now ❤

IMG_0521

This is the palette i’m talking about. It’s in the shade BR-1 and as you can see has several different shades/ tints of copper, coral and gold. First off i don’t really need to do swatches because the colour and pigmentation you see here is totally what you get! You get the exact colour!

Now i’m going to talk about how i achieved this look, i’m talking brushes and all.

Unknown

So firstly i took this peachy golden coral colour and patted that onto my eyelid as my base with my Napoleon Perdis SET eyeshadow brush.

I then went and moved onto my transition colour that i also with on my outer corner just a tiny bit. Which is this Purple plum type colour. Also guys all these shadows are super glittery and shimmery! The gold shade even has specks of chunky glitter! ooh!

Then for all over my lid i used this really true copper shade which is what really brought this look to life! i used my Naploeon Perdis SET eyeshadow/ eye definer duo brush. And for this i used a patting technique again.

Then moving onto my brow bone. I used this white to off white cream colour. The brush i used was the Real Techniques eyeshadow brush once again.

And then i might’ve used that bottom gold colour but uh i don’t think i did.

This whole time i was doing my eyeshadow with pieces of tape at the sides of my eyes to 1. keep this look neat and 2. to add a sharp edge.

I then went onto using my Benefit Roller Lash mascara and coated my top and bottom lashes. And also added that true copper and plum colour under my bottom lashes.

And yes that is the completed look! Tell me in the comments if you have created something similar yourself or if you will pick up this palette!

MAC Lipstick Collection

Hey There!

In todays blog post i’m going to be sharing with you all my tiny MAC lipstick collection. 2 out of the 3 lipsticks are mine (one is my mums). I basically and going to be blogging about which ones my favourite, the formula etc.

IMG_0404

The lipsticks shown above are the ones i own. (Left to right), ‘Peach Blossom’, ‘Flamingo’ and ‘Pink Nouveau’ (my mums).

I’ll start with which one is my favourite. My favourite lipstick is ‘Peach Blossom’, it also is my most sued lipstick and my very first MAC one! The formula of this lipstick is a CreamSheen meaning is very moisturising and also glossy yet pigmented. A picture of ‘Peach Blossom’ is down below.

IMG_0409

Now moving onto my second favourite ‘Flamingo’. It is a very nice formula that’s shear and glossy but still as you know pigmented. This lipstick is a Lustre formula which is the glossy, shear type. A picture of ‘Flamingo’ is down below.

IMG_0408.jpg

Now i;m going to move onto my Mums lipstick. My least favourite too! hehe This is ‘Pink Nouveau’ which is a Satin finish/ formula. Which i don’t really like… It’s not a formula i would really pick up and since it’s actually my mums i can’t say anything really because i’ve tried it once and the colour looked horrible on me and my teeth looked yellow. A picture of ‘Pink Nouveau’ is below.IMG_0410.jpg

So that comes to the end of my mini MAC lipstick collection ❤

I hope you all like this blog post! ❤

Rant? Expressing feelings? (Social Media) <3

Hey There!

So. I don’t know wether to call these a rant or a big old post of feelings to do with social media?.. Anyway. So i’m just going to be talking about a bunch of subjects, yes a bunch.

  1. Bullying

Yes, bulling. This happens all too much in todays society. And honestly it needs to stop quite a bit today. Now i can’t work magic or do anything to help this situation around the world but but say this, ‘What Is The Point?’ ‘What Good Are You Getting Out Of It?’ ‘Why?’. Why does one feel the need to bully (constructive criticism is totally different)! You’re just being rude, selfish and stupid! Let people be who ever they want, they are unique and God made us that way TO BE YOU AND UNIQUE! So go put the pink afro wig on, where blue lipstick with red and purple eyeshadow, wear heels with 3/4 shorts BE YOU! DO SOMETHING THAT MAKES YOU UNIQUE AND BEAUTIFUL IN YOUR OWN AWESOME WAY! ❤

2. Copying and Stealing

Now this comes in different forms of… ways. Through pictures to drawings to essays and to your Instagram theme! I have experienced way too many times people taking my Instagram pictures, blurring my watermark out which but the way is/potentially is illegal!  I’ve also seen people be impersinated and have their account hacked again was too many times! *Sighs*

3. Hobbies feeling like chores (related to me)

I just feel as though doing YouTube and being a blogger is becoming a job/ chore and i don’t want it to become that and feel anymore like it does. It does make me sad because then i question is all this just for nothing? Am I not right to be doing this? Do I want something completely different in my life. But then it scares me to think if i quit i might miss a huge opportunity in my life to become something amazing. So i keep going ❤ Until June i will try to do a video every week or at least 3 videos a week. But when June comes i’m thinking of just 2 videos per month which hurts because i want to seem in my channel 1 video every week *again sighs* But maybe 3 i think 3 would be good but when Christmas comes around there will be 4+ ❤ of course

4.

Instagram (related to me again)

I feel happier to take Nature pictures and pictures of my dogs and OOTDS then sometimes makeup. I think by Wednesday i will make a full photography account where each Saturday and Sunday i will post 1-2 pictures. (When i finish year 12 i’m boing to go travel the world for 1 or possibly 2 years).  I am straight away going to go to Borra Borra then when it’s  Summer in England i’ll go there and then i will go anywhere else i want. ❤ This makes me happy most of all! ❤

5. My expectations/ dreams?

So what i plan is whilst i’m in year 10 i’ll try and get into the makeup industry and become a professional makeup artist by the age of 17-18 then i will work in that career and then when i’m 20, i will get a certificate in photography and become a professional in photography. Once i have managed that by the age of 26 i would like to be in the magazine industry and travel the world to take pictures of places and outfits (both for my Instagram and magazines). Yes, my expectations are high for myself, yes the magazine industry is hard to get into but hopefully with both those certificates/ jobs and (give and take a few other things i have to do) i will get where i want to be. Also it has been a dream of mine since i was little to be able to do a clothing line so hopefully i will be able to do that before 30 preferably 26. I basically have my whole life planned out but i do prefer photography over makeup…. ARGJRBGIG some might say that-I don’t know. Even if i don’t 100% enjoy doing makeup it will get me further to my goal and where i want to be, it also could come in handy. ❤

That’s basically all of it ❤ I might do a Part 2 in the coming future i’m not sure  let me know if you have anything you want me to talk about though obviously not too personal ❤

Makeup Haul // Review | Caiitlinmaree

Hey There!

So first off i just wanted to say Happy New Year i hope you will all have an amazing year! xx Secondly i’m just going to post when i feel like it. I felt like it was a chore to do every morning and i wasn’t enjoying it, so i’ve decided to post at least 2 times a week whenever.

But in todays post i’m going to be sharing you the products i bought around 1-2 days ago

IMG_0228

I got everything 1/2 price at Chemist Warehouse. Though the three essence products weren’t half off because i got them else where.

Maybelline:

The Nudes Palette: $24, purchased for $12

So the first product i got from Maybelline is there ‘The Nudes’ palette. I don’t know if they aren’t actually pigmented or i’m just too use to using shimmery metallic eyeshadows (which are super pigmented). So to be honest i’m quite disappointed with it but, i do like using the matte eyeshadows in the crease, and only the crease. I just feel it works well there for me.

Hyper Diamonds Palette: BR-1 $16, purchased for $8

I then got another eyeshadow palette… yeah.

This palette on the other hand is very pigmented and has a range of amazing shades that i will wear all the time! Ah! I love it. Theres purple plum shade, a white cream colour, two pinky shades (though the one on the left is a little more like rose gold to copper) and then lastly there is a gorgeous gold! So pretty!

Colour Drama Intense Velvet Lip Pencil: Minimalist $8, purchased for $4

This colour though! It is now my favourite ‘Colour Drama’ pencil. It such as nice purple pink colour and makes your teeth look a lil whiter. It’s super pigmented and easy to apply and take off.

Revlon:

Photo ready Sunlights face illuminator: 100 Bare Light$24, purchased for $12

Now this product i like but also don’t like, so like 50 50. It’s very subtle maybe too subtle? I feel like it isn’t a strong illuminator but good if you’re starting with makeup because you can’t do any wrong with it. Though i don’t think it’s worth $24 dollars. Thank goodness i got it for $12.

Essence:

NEW Sheer and Shine lipstick: All About Cupcake ❤ Purchased for around $4.20

Ah, this lipstick is so gorgeous! I use to be against Essence because they don’t always have packaging seals on their products and that they look ‘cheap’ but i was pleasantly surprised when i tried there ‘Nauti blush’ that they are truly amazing! This lipstick was $4.20? So cheap! I am always a bit curious if they are made in the same factory as MAC because their lipsticks smell exactly the same… hmm? Anyway i love it!

Liquid Lipstick: 03 Almost Real, purchased for around $4.20

This liquid lipstick is again so amazing! Very pigmented and goes on and comes off smoothly. If you’re looking for a new liquid lipstick this is recommended by me! ❤

NEW Multi – Action volume mascara: Black, purchase for $5.10

This is totally a dupe for Roller Lash! This even separates your lashes more   though, which i do like. But iI still love RollerLash… of course! he reason i bought this was because i the cool pop art font. Basically i was like a bug which saw a big light… in this instance it was yellow pop art. I really light the different packaging of this product. All in all a fantastic mascara.

L’Oreal Paris:

Lipgloss/ cream formula: 102 Scream and Shout, $22 purchased for $11

Yay! Another L’Oreal lipgloss to the collection! i now own 4. This lipgloss is very pigmented and lasts quite awhile. Overall i just love it.

Les O’mbré’s Palette: E1 Beige Trench, $22 purchased for $12

Very pigmented, quality is amazing, lasts a long time and is really worth purchasing! ❤

So that comes to the end of this makeup haul let me know what makeup products i should buy next. It doesn’t matter if it’s ‘High end’ or ‘Drugstore’ x

Any questions? Don’t be afraid to ask in the comments! xx

L’Oreal Paris Sent Me A Package? + HOURGLASS Ambient Lighting Edit Palette Swatches | CaiitlinMaree

Hey There!

In todays Blog Post i’m going to be firstly showing you swatches of the HOURGLASS Ambient Lighting Palette (2015 holiday item).

hourglass swatches.jpg

When I did a blog post about this palette someone asked me if I could post the swatches so I just thought why not put the swatches in this blog post x (top to bottom) Dim Light (contour shade), Iridescent Light (highlighter), Diffused Light (under eye/ all over powder), Mood Exposure (plum blush), Luminous Flush (baby pink blush) and Luminous Bronze Light (golden bronzer). If you want to see the full review to this palette click here.

Now for the package L’Oreal Paris Australia sent me ❤

L'Oreal part 1

So in total they sent me 5 items 4 of which i don’t own. Sadly i already owned the exact eyeshadow palette 😦 <3.

Eyeshadow palette: The shade it’s in is Eau De Rose or Rose Nude.

It is very pigmented, lasts all day (with and without primer), the eyeshadows are shimmery though the darkest shade is a bit more matte. As for the price one palette is costs $23.95. So in my opinion a reasonable price.

Lipgloss 1 (Infallible Lipstick, opened gloss) : The shade it’s in is 208 Lasting Mauve.

First lets start with the colour it is insanely pigmented and EXTREMELY hard to get off the lips! It’ also a very unusual colour for me it’s sorta like Too Faced Melted lipstick in the shade Fig. It’s more purple the mauve. This product comes with a dou-foot applicator, the product isn’t patchy, nor does it wear off during the day (lasts through eating and drinking) and at the other end of the product has a type of sealing balm that you put over the top of the gloss. When setting though… it gets very sticky so i recommend putting the ‘sealing balm’ straight on after the first application. This product is $30 AUS dollars.. quite expensive (only $6 dollars less then a MAC lipstick… what?!). Personally myself I don’t think i’ll be picking a new shade up anytime soon (only due the price). ❤

Lipgloss 2 (Infallible Long Wear Gloss, glittery light pink gloss): The shade it’s in is 509 You Know You Love Me.

Ah! this gloss is so gorgeous! It’s like a dupe for a MAC Dazzleglass which is exactly $21 AUS dollars more! This lipgloss is $21.95. This particular gloss has a nice baby pink colour to it along with baby pink and white glitter particles in it. You can’t actually feel the glitter nor is the gloss sticky. As for how long these wear i would say not that long maximum i say is 3 hours minimum 1 hour. (I do rub my lips a lot XD). I also own two other glosses from this line and adore them! ❤

L'Oreal part 2.jpg

Now for the last two products which are the cheapest out of everything! whoo!

Glam Matte Instense Matte Glosses (left to right) Coral Denimista and Cherry Crop. (Cherry crop is more a hot pink colour to what the picture is showing) ❤

Now i am very picky with matte lip lacquers. But these aren’t that bad, yay! The feel velvety soft when dried completely and don’t make my teeth look yellower (yes XD). I’d have to say though i’m not a big fan of neon lip colours nor pinky reds but these colours are very nice indeed! I feel as though with the Coral colour you could put a darker pink underneath it if the fluorescent baby coral pink is’t for you (which is what i plan to do)  but on it’s own it’s gorgeous. Also with Cherry crop I feel like it’s the perfect red-y pink colour for me. I played around with the colours previously and discovered if you mix these two colours on your lips is create the most beautiful rosey pink colour! It’s so pretty! And now for the wearing etc. These matte glosses last up to 5 hours for me and are EXTREMELY easy to take off at the end of the day! ❤ They aren’t sticky like previous matte glosses i’ve had before and lastly they are very affodable at $10.98 AUS dollars whoo! So cheap! ❤

So that puts and end to this blog post! Sorry again for not posting in a week i’ve been waiting for this package to arrive because it’s something i really wanted to BLOG about xx

Any questions about the products? Don’t be afraid to ask any questions in the comments below! xx

HOURGLASS Ambient Lighting Edit | CaiitlinMaree

Hey There!

So in todays blog post i’m going to be doing a review on the HOURGLASS Ambient Lighting Edit Palette. This by the way is 1 of 2 Christmas items HOURGLASS has brought out this year I was lucky enough to be able to purchase this because at the time i had $117 AUS dollars in my purse. Eek! It totally broke my purses life! XD It is a lot of money and if your from the US it’s $80 which is a lot cheaper! Sorry for those who live in England and else where. ❤

IMG_0114.jpg

So now moving onto shades.

Shades: Left to right, (top row)

Dim light, for my skin tone it’s a very nice natural contour/ bronzer. This shade is a permanent shade to HOURGLASS.

Iridescent Light, this is such a nice, beautiful and natural highlighter! This shade is EXCLUSIVE to this palette and can not be purchased after Christmas!

Diffused Light, deepening on how dark your skin tone is this could be brightening for under your eyes or anywhere you want to highlight. For myself it’s a really nice glowy all over the face powder which IS NOT CAKEY! Yay! ❤ This shade is permanent

IMG_0112.jpg

Shades: Left to right, (bottom row).

Mood Exposure, this shade is a blush and is a kind of mauve-y, purple, pink-y colour.

Luminous Flush, this shade is too permanent. The colour is simply a light baby pink which looks lovely with nude to brown lips.

Luminous Bronze Light, this bronzer is again a permanent shade. This bronzer I don’t think i will really use. Reason being it’s golden and has shimmer in it. And I also don’t think this colour will suit everyone i’m a little iffy about it.

IMG_0115.jpg

Pan of the product,(CONTROVERSY)!

So each pan is 0.049 ounces, and a full size of one of these products in of 2 ounces MORE THEN THE WHOLE PALETTE whaaat!? To be honest with you i don’t care on the sizing this is the first product that i’ve owned from HOURGLASS and it think that this palette is worth is! ❤ You’re getting to try 6 ‘sample’ sizes of products which full priced altogether is over $300 AUS dollars! Gee wheez! SO if you’re looking to try something from HOURGLASS i recommend this to you all! Although bear unmanned that HOURGLASS is a LUXURY HIGH-END brand. ❤

IMG_0113.jpg

-Overall this product is not ‘affordable’ but for HOURGLASS it is!

-The pigmentation is natural and beautiful.

-The colours are very pretty are buildable.

-The pan sizing could be bigger, but overall i think it’s ok.

So that’s the end of today’s Blog Post ❤

Any questions? Don’t be afraid to ask in the comments! xx
