In terms of makeup, I’ve been embracing my favourite colours this week, namely pink (there can never be too many pink in my life!) and black.

Maybelline Color Elixir Color Sensational Creamy Lip Lacquers


I was in lippy heaven when the collection of Maybelline Color Elixir Color Sensational Creamy Lip Lacquers (phew, what a long name to type out!) landed on my desk recently.  I had already read rave reviews about these lip-tastic elixirs and I wondered if they would live up to the hype so I immediately put them to the test.

Benefit They're Real Push-Up Liner in Australia, Benefit Cosmetics They're Real Push-Up Liner


If you’re a cosmetics chaser, you will have read on many beauty blogs about the soon-to-be-released Benefit They’re Real Push-Up Liner.  I was a lucky duck (quack, quack) and got my hands on one of these babies a few weeks ago and I’ve given it a good trial run.

For the first time ever, out of all the Benefit cosmetics I have tried – Fake Up (HG undereye concealer), POREfessionalDr Feelgood, Ultra Plush Lip Gloss, They’re Real Mascara (my HG!), etc – this is the first one I didn’t fall in love with straight away!!  My verdict of this highly-raved gel eyeliner pen is that I like it, but I don’t love it.

New Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipsticks & my Fambam choose their Favourites


New Rimmel Moisture London Renew Lipsticks


When we went to UK recently, one of the places we REALLY wanted to go to was London.  Yes, I’ve been there multiple times and we spent a few days there for our honeymoon but we wanted to visit again because a) SHOPPING and b) FOOD (and if my London friends and family are reading this, then of course, we wanted to visit you guys too!!! *ahem*)  However, we only spent a few measly hours in London and that was at Heathrow Airport where Baby Bunty vomited in spectacular fashion - attention-seeker or what?!

Speaking of London and attention-seekers, Rimmel London recently released their new Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipsticks in 12 eye-catching colours and lucky old me got my mitts on the sexy pop-up press kit so let’s take a look together…
