Christmas Lush Collection 2016 (my thoughts)

Hi There!

Just recently, Lush brought out their Christmas and Halloween products for 2016. Overall, I would have to say my thoughts are kind of the same as last year. I’m a little disappointed by the scent range. Yes, you have you lovely sweet and mint scents and you have a wide a range of fruity scents but, you don’t have many spicy scents. It’s all be overwhelmed but the orange, mandarine and tangerine. I seriously think Lush need to up their game on spicy scents. That’s what makes Christmas at Lush! Within the shower gels, body containers, soaps and other products I think the scents are wonderful and there’s an even amount of great scents, but with the bath bombs and bubble bars, I’m disappointed.

I have screen shot all the products from Lush’s Australian website so i can show you what each product looks like, (by the way, i have bought 18 of the lines products and i might be buying more..). Because Lush (in Australia) has released half of the products at the start of November and will be releasing the other half in the first week of November i haven’t smelt everything, therefore i will not be able to describe the scents. If I can’t describe all the scents I will describe none.

So above are all the products on the website. As for appearances, this year I’m happy to say that i think everything looks more christmas-y. There’s the cute as penguin which was released in 2013-2014 (possibly even further back), you have several magic wands, a dinosaur with a santa’s hat! A present, angel, pudding and a reindeer on a soap! With this there is even more great looking goodies!

Overall, Lush this year has been pretty good! Let me know if you’ve bought and tried anything, (i’ve nearly bought all the bath products/ i will be buying the 4 i don’t have at the moment).

Don’t be afraid to ask any question in the comments!

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.

Unknownn

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.

IMG_0508

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!

Decorating for Christmas | CaiitlinMaree

Hey There!

So in todays blog post i’m going to be talking about Christmas, more specifically decorating. Decorating for Christmas is simply one of my favourite things to do with Christmas. It brings so much colour and spirit to my room and creates either a really cute and cosy feeling or a really sleek and photogenic feel.

I’m firstly going to start with shelves. For me decorating shelves is just so hard, i find it so hard to decorate shelves jus because i like to group objects together and then having weirdly shaped decorations i just can never figure out how to work them. So what i do now is i get 3-4 decorations (if I’m grouping them) and i’ll have 1 large ornament, 1 medium ornament, and 1-2 small decor items. I feel like this will and does work for me very well.

Now i’m going to move onto my Christmas tree. Obviously i’m not going to tell you how to decorate your tree, because this can hold family memories and just be something that can suit a room by it’s theme. The tree in our lounge room has mostly red, gold and glittery baubles along with random decorations like a peacock…yeah… we have that on the main tree XD And also special memorable decorations from when i was very young (like 3-4). As you can see on the picture above i have (on my personal tree in my room) i have numerous plastic and unique decorations as that what i love.

IMG_0068.jpg

Now for my last section your duchess/ set of drawers. I’m not going to explain really about how to decorate your bed obviously but my bed is all Christmas cutesy and ‘Australian Summer Christmasy’ so it depends on what you like really. But  as see in the picture above i have very few decor items on my duchess. I don’t feel like i need a ton of decor items on my duchess because i like to keep this furniture item clean and sleek looking. But i do have a few snow globes and some glittery items as seen. I just have these decor items because i wanted something there for display obviously but also for my YouTube and Instagram backgrounds. I base everything on how my duchess and tree are (this is what starts off my decor inspiration. ❤

So that puts this very Christmassy blog post to an end. I really hope you did enjoy this different post, but of course if you want specific Christmas post be sure to comment below what you would like to see.

YouTube and Instagram| CaiitlinMaree

Hey There!

So todays blog post is going to be very short, very short as in under 300 words x. What i’m going to be talking about today is basically YouTube and my Instagram update, if you want to check out my Instagram click here.

notebooks.jpg

So in the picture above i recently book a weekly planner (on top) and a beautiful pink, white and golden notebook in which it says ‘Let’s Move To Paris’. Seeing this is made me want to pick it up as to all the tourist attacks at the moment in Paris.

So basically I posted this picture on Instagram and said in it that i am going to be making my account have more flat lays (such as this photo) and more pastel pictures throughout my Instagram. The only pictures i will post flat lays of are 1. stationary and 2. fashion/ fashion inspiration. This will just give my Instagram a bit of a twist every now and again. Also since it’s now December i am going to be posting christmas stuff soon and my Christmas treats video will hopefully be up this Sunday although no promises!  (Sneak peek there) see? It pays to be following my blog 🙂 I am also hoping to have 2 christmas videos every week though there is one week with three uploads!

So that has put this blog post to an end. See? It was so small ❤

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

Art Of Bathing Lush | CaiitlinMaree

Hey There!

In todays Blog Post i’m going to be just talk about one of the gift sets Lush has which is called The Art Of Bathing. This blog post isn’t going to be full of detail because it is very late at night and I’m tired

lush

So as seen in the picture the box is packed to the bring of 15 Lush goodies!

This box retails for $99 AUS dollars. Very expensive i know but it’s not their dearest. The reason we got this gift set is because we (my mum and I) are giving 2 things out to 3 people and then my mum is having 2 products and i am having 5. Although she didn’t use her’s… i might of… only because she didn’t want to use them and didn’t care XD.

There is also around half bubble bars and half bath bombs in the set. Now i’m not going to go into too much detail as everything is on the Lush websites. ❤

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

Covergirl 1 2 3 4 Eyeshadow Palette review | CaiitlinMaree

Hey There!

So lately i’ve been loving Covergirl! especially their eyeshadows and concealers.

Today i’m going to be doing a blog post on the Covergirl 1 2 3 4 Go for the Golds eyeshadow palette review. I’m going to be stating both the cons and pros of the palette as well as showing swatches x.

IMG_9795

Pros:

-All shades are very pigmented.                                –

-Lasts very well without primer.

-If you don’t like very dark brown shades this palette is for you because the brown is very blend-able.

-All shades are very easy to blend.

-Price is very cheap (around $10-15) AUS.

-Suits light to medium skin tones (not sure about other skin tones) <3.

Cons:

-If you don’t like shimmer you won’t like the shimmery shades (3 out of 4 are shimmery).

-No pink/ nude-ish palettes are available.

-The shades are a little hard to get to with your eyeshadow brushes (because they are so small).

So thats all there is to this Blog Post if you liked this post be sure to like it and if you aren’t already following me please do so ❤

         So that is the end of blog post. Any questions? Don’t be afraid to ask a question x

See you in my next blog post!
