Go Matte Or Go Home!

Before I gave birth, I envisaged Maternity Leave to be a time where I would successfully juggle a newborn baby with a lot of free time to do whatever I wanted.  I imagined me being one of those Mums who would get up bright and early, do some yoga, make some fabulous smoothie concoction in a hipster Mason jar (and Instagram it!) and drink it with a stripy straw, followed by Baby Time and when she napped, I would be able to carry on my day and do plenty of blogging and make plenty of clean-eating meals, blah blah blah.  It all seemed so easy…

Reality check – it has been the total opposite!!!  I just have NO free time!!!  Motherhood is hard work and I’m not afraid to say that some days are a struggle because it is so intense and full-on.  It is, by far, the most difficult thing I have ever encountered.  But at the same time, I love it soooo much and I feel immensely blessed.

Anyway, I am rattling on (not an easy feat typing with one hand as the other hand/arm is cuddling the baby) when I am supposed to be introducing you to the Matte beauty stash I have been loving lately…  Yes, I still have a bit of time for makeup.  I refuse to be a frumpy mummy so I am happy being a semi-yummy mummy hehe…

Review & Swatch : L’Oreal Paris Magic Nude Liquid Powder

L’Oreal Paris Nude Magique Eau De Teint Australia, Armani Maestro dupe, L'Oreal Paris Magic Nude Liquid Powder Australia, L'Oreal Paris Magic Nude Liquid Powder Natural Buff 318,

Another day, another foundation!  Hello L’Oreal Paris Magic Nude Liquid Powder!  But this one’s extra special because a) it was a gift from the lovely Norlin over at Baubles, Bubbles & Bags when she went on her US trip and b) it’s apparently a dupe for the more expensive Armani Maestro Foundation which was on my wishlist.

However, please note that L’Oreal Paris Magic Nude Liquid Powder is not yet released in Australia and it’s known as L’Oreal Paris Nude Magique Eau De Teint in UK…so who knows when and what it will be called when it is released in Australia…?!

First of all, I just want to say a BIG thank you to everyone for showering me with baby love in the last couple of posts.  The Husband and I really cannot wait to meet her!!!  Anyway, for more personal updates, you can follow my other blog, Lingspiration, and it’s back to business with beauty talk today 🙂

A couple of months ago, Avon kindly sent me a generous care package filled with beauty products galore.  I had lots of fun playing with them and here is a make-up look featuring Avon products.  Let me break it down…

Hi ladies, if you didn’t know already, today is Bright Pink Lipstick Day!

Bright Pink Lipstick Day is a fun and fabulous way of raising awareness of breast and ovarian cancer.  The official lipstick is the Limited Edition Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Pink Hope – but it’s fine to just wear any pink lipstick (or lip gloss) that makes your pout pop!
