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.

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.

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! ❤

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

My Favourite Orange/ Coral Lip Products | CaiitlinMaree

Hey There!

In todays Blog Post i’m going to be talking about my favourite ‘orange to coral lip products’. Coral lip products are one of the 3 colours i wear on a day to day bases and are a colour i will reach for to buy even if i have a similar colour to that product.IMG_0064.jpg

So as seen in the picture above i have go together 3 of my favourite orange to coral lip products.The only ‘Coral’ colour is that Napoleon Perdis lipgloss XD.

The first product i’m going to start off with is a lipstick and it’s the Revlon lip butter in the shade 027 Juicy Papaya. This lip butter lipstick is very moisturising, has great pigmentation, lasts quite a while but not a long time, depending on how many layers you apply of this product you can make a natural coral to a vibrant orange and now lastly for the one con the price. This product is $21 AUS dollars! yeah… expensive.

Now I’m going to move onto the middle product. This product is from Benefit and it is their Cha Cha Balm (which is a lip balm). The great things about this products are; that this item is very moisturising, has a good pigment to is since it is a lip balm, cute packing (always a plus for me 😀 <3). Now for that con the price… well it’s sorta expensive but since this product is a high end item it’s to be expensive. This item is $28 AUS dollars.

Now moving onto the last product which again is a highness item. But the lipgloss is from Napoleon Perdis’s 2015 Christmas gift set. The set is called the ‘Love Gloss’ set and is $59 AUS dollars, but their is also 12 glosses in this set. The shade that is in this picture is called ‘Admire’. To be honest i don’t really like the new formula or Perdis’s glosses :(. To me they aren’t anywhere near as pigmented as his previous glosses and to make matters worse the glosses come with a dou foot applicator (sorry if duo was spelt wrong XD). I think that this makes the glosses look and feel cheap. Though there is a perk to the set $59 for 12 Napoleon Perdis glosses is a great deal… though the sample size is very small.There is 0.7ml’s or 0.02 fl oz which is hardly anything. Thinking back i don’t think i would pick this set up again if i had the choice. I totally think it’s not worth and don’t suggest picking this up. Though they are pretty moisturising but in my opinion that’s all that’s good about them. They also come of super quick since they aren’t thick like they use to be.<3

So that officials puts this blog post to an end. Be sure if you enjoyed this Blog Post to give a like 🙂 ❤
