REVIEW | Stila Stay All Day HD Beauty Balm

Recently a brand spanking new Mecca Maxima store opened near to where I work. For those who don't know, Mecca is a store in Australia that stocks a lot of international cosmetic brands like NARS, Smashbox etc. It's pretty much heaven! You may have remembered me mentioning Kit Cosmetics before? Well Kit and Mecca are the same company and the Maxima stores are like both combined to create a fantastic SUPERSTORE! Yep, I got your attention now, didn't I? I thought the opening of this store would instantly be the most dangerous thing to happen to me, but surprisingly I have controlled myself well.

While I was having a wonder in the store the other day, completely awed and mystified, I spotted this...

And what a mouthful of a name! Stila Stay All Day 10-in-1 HD Beauty Balm. Woah!

Archie's Girls 'Betty' Inspired Look

Here is another look for the makeup tag on Aqeela's blog. We did this one a couple of weeks ago, but I still thought I'd share. The theme was 'Archie's Girls' to pay homage to the new limited edition collection by MAC. For those who aren't familiar with the comic or the range, here's a little bit of background I found on the MAC website:

"The ravishing rivals for Archie's affection inspire a colour collection celebrating their iconic personas. Smoulder in deep and seductive tones inspired by spoiled rich girl Veronica or beam like blonde-next-door Betty in soft and innocent shades for eyes and face."

So, I decided to take the sweet innocence of Betty and run with it! Here's the look I came up with.

I'm so late with this post, but I really wanted to share it on here. A few weeks ago the theme for the makeup tag, hosted on Aqeela's blog, was peacock inspired. It turned out to be one of the most creative and diverse weeks yet. Click here to check out what the other girls came up with.

But here is my look...

February Empties (maybe a little Jan & Dec also)

I haven't written an empties post since way back in November, so this has been a long time coming. Surprisingly, I haven't finished many things in the last three months. Onwards and upwards, let's talk about what I hated and what I would definitely repurchase!
