Tried & Tested Trio : Nude Lipsticks

nude lippies, nude lips, best nude lipsticks

2015 has been an interesting year.  I’ve started embracing new interests.

For example, I’ve stopped reading celebrity goss mags and I’ve started reading Better Homes & Gardens magazine!  And I love it!  Who am I???  My mother??

And I’ve stopped favouring bold ‘in-yer-face’ lippy colours and I have been embracing nudes!  Who am??  J-Lo??

Anywayyyyzzzz, let me introduce you to this trio of nude lipsticks I have been wearing recently…

Her Name Is Laura…

No, I haven’t popped out my baby girl yet!  And no, we’re not going to call her Laura either.  But I’m talking about the Laura Mercier Touch Up Brush Clutch For Eyes & Cheeks which landed on my beauty desk recently.

*hehe*
But I fooled y’all for a second, didn’t I?
…crickets chirping…

Moving swiftly on…

I am pleased to showcase another BRAND NEW & COMING SOON tried, tested and loved beauty product which was sent for review – Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Foundation Powder.  You heard it here first, but I declare that it is TOTALLY THE BEES KNEES and you will see why later when you see the unedited before and after photos because high res photos (taken with my awesome new Canon 40mm pancake lens – thank you hubby!) tell no lies!!!

Laura Mercier Oil Free Supreme Foundation Makes Me Go ‘Ooh La La!’

A few weeks ago, I gave you a quick peek {here}, but today, I bring you the first official review of Laura Mercier on The Best Beauty Blog.  *wolf whistle*  But before I continue, I MUST make sure that you are pronouncing ‘Mercier’ correctly*.  It is NOT Mercy-er!  It is, in a very sexy French accent, ‘Mer-see-ay’.  Altogether now in the sexiest faux French accent ever, “Laura Mercier”.  Beautiful!!!  And let’s proceed…

I am told that Laura Mercier Oil Free Supreme Foundation has replaced the previous Oil Free Foundation – of which I have never tried so I can’t possibly compare.  But let me tell you about my experience with the Supreme version.

Beauty Bites featuring Canon, Laura Mercier, Eylure, Ulta3 & Daiso

Hello my lovely peeps!  When you read this blog post, I will probably be bleeding from the surgical incision from my mini op.  Damn, I wish I was having something “glamourous” like plastic surgery but alas, it’s not even remotely close to that.  I have a blockage in my salivary gland… Yeah, how boring is that, right?  I won’t be emerging with new eyelids or a lovely new nose or big boobies…I will just have a swollen mouth for days which means I can’t eat.

Anyway, enough boring chat from me and let’s have a look at this week’s Beauty Bites post.

My 1st DSLR :  First up, please welcome my new toy!  Like OMG!  This is the best early birthday present EVER!  (Psst, my birthday’s this coming Monday!!)  Yes, the Husband got me a Canon 650D because I have been looking at improving my photography skills – all for the sake of this beauty blog!  It is the bomb dot com.  I know a lot of beauty bloggers say that it is not necessary to have a DSLR to have great photos…but I can really see the improvement in my pictures already.  It’s a super amazing camera and I could go on all day about it!  I was gutted to discover that 4 days after we bought it from JB Hi Fi, the price dropped by $200…but apparently, you can get a backdated discount…but guess what?  We lost the freaking receipt!!!  Anyway, just a side note – I am officially on a shopping ban because of this exxy purchase so no more hauls for a while.  Le sigh.

Laura Mercier Power Couple :  AKA Laura Mercier Foundation Primer + Laura Mercier Oil Free Supreme Foundation (courtesy of PR)!  Super duper love!  A full review will be coming shortly but I thought I’d give you all a sneak peek.  I don’t know what it is but I have stopped using BB creams at the moment and I have turned into a Foundation Queen!  Love love love foundation!

I Love Katy Perry :  There you go!  I said it on my blog so it is now official!  I don’t know what happened but I was never into Katy Perry or her songs and then when she got divorced from Russell Brand, something changed.  Yep, her hair colour changed a lot…but there was just something different about her.  I thought she looked sad, but she was strong too.  Anyway, I wanted to go watch her docu-movie Katy Perry : Part Of Me but I couldn’t blackmail the Husband to go with me.  I will patiently wait for the DVD.  Meanwhile, I have been playing the music video for Part Of Me on repeat and I have been drooling over the falsies she has created with Eylure.  Yup, that’s another review you have to wait for.  Review is ready! Falsies are courtesy of Eylure PR.


Lunch Break & Lipsticks :  So during one of my lunch breaks, I went shopping (this is before my ban) and bizarrely, my Husband knew exactly what I was doing!  He knows me too well!  And people think we got married because I wanted an Australian visa.  Pfft!  Anyway, I was so excited to see a big shelf of ulta3 lipsticks and I ended up choosing this magic green lippy (it’s not green though because it comes out pink-ish) and a matte black lippy.  Ahhh, I still have to swatch it but look out for it on LipStalker.

Daiso Delights :  Just a teeny tiny shopping haul from Daiso.  I bought chalk to see if I can chalk my hair and make it colourful like the Kevin Murphy Color Bugs and I bought a new eyelash curler just because I couldn’t splash out on the new Shu Uemura Gold Eyelash Curler so I bought a Daiso Gold Eyelash Curler instead.

That’s me over and out.  Are you still enjoying Beauty Bites or is it time to say bye bye and return to my usual posts?  Let me know please 🙂  And please send me your positive vibes so I can heal real fast and get back to blogging ASAP.
