Haul Of Anger

Okay..let me ask you you haul when there are extreme of emotions ?? I have this strong urge to haul when I experience the extreme emotions, mostly when I am angry.
So, one of these days when I was in rage, Crush Cosmetics was having 20% off WetnWild and my poor credit card took the hit.

Let go through the haul. First up is Wet n Wild Comfort Zone palette. I won't say much about this, just one word 'Amazing'. Shade selection is great and pigmentation is awesome. If you are going for a short trip, I think this is all you need in terms of eyeshadow. Perfect.

Swatches : Left Column (Top to Bottom)
Swatches : Right Column ( Top to Bottom)
Next is ELF Cream eyeshadow.Lets talk about the packaging. ELF, why waste so much on extra bulky packaging ? Please use that funds to get more shades in the collection.
I have yet to use them as products so I comment much about how they perform.
ELF Cream Eyeshadow: Dawn
Swatch : Dawn   

Next is ELF Cream Eyeshadow in Eggplant. Now, readers please tell, is it just me or even you think that ELF team got the name of this color completely wrong. I mean, where is eggplant in this shade ?? Its looks more like a bronze brown color.I was disappointed when I saw this, since I was looking forward to using an eggplant color. 

ELF Cream Eyeshadow : Eggplant
Swatch : Eggplant
And finally, I got Wet n Wild gel eyeliner in Eggplant ( Yes, I know there is lot of eggplant in this post). This was a complete downer. The brush is totally useless and the pigmentation in liner is extremely poor. Not at all happy. Its hard to believe that same company can have a total winner in a product and then have this.

So, the question is still there,do you haul when you are angry ??

Hot Pink Lips

Okay if you are like me who wants to wear bright pink lip colors but shy away from it, I think this lipstick will do the job for you. Its bright but not too much into face or neon like. Without further ado, I present to you Flamenco from Australis Colour Inject Mineral Lipstick range.


The company's website describes the color as 'hot pink with very slight purple pearl' and I think this is perfect description of the color.
The lipstick is moisturising and gives good amount of wear time.

Its hot and its wearable.

Would I recommend it : Definitely yes, its now a handbag staple for me

Availability: Priceline, Pharmacy,Target
RRP : $12.95 AUD

EOTD : Loreal Infallible Eyeshadow

What do you do, if you are lusting after Armani Eyes To Kill , but don't have enough moolah to get them ?? You head to local drugstore and get the more affordable cousin,Loreal Infallible Eyeshadow.

I treated myself to 2 shades( Purple Obsession, All Night Blue ) from this range. Today's EOTD features 'All Night Blue'

Other than 'All Night Blue', I have used MAC Embark in crease and some random gold pigment.

Red Dip Dyed Lips

My attempt of wearing a dip dyed red lips. Its basically a gradient look with dark color at edges and lighter in center.

I used a red lip liner and Ciccone Cosmetics Aphrodite as base. Before applying Ciccone Voluptas in the centre, I lightened the intensity of Aphrodite. Then I finished with Face Of Australia Divine Shine in Morning Mist

I enjoyed doing this and might give it another attempt with different colors.

P.S : Please excuse the flakies, I forgot to exfoliate before doing the look.

Review : Ciccone Cosmetics Lipsticks

I read great reviews about Ciccone Cosmetics lipsticks both over twitter and various blogs. This got me curious and I couldn't look past trying them.

Ciccone Cosmetics is an Australian company founded by Helen and Frank in 2001 . Their product range features 8 lipsticks and today I will present 4 of them.

What Company Says

Ciccone cosmetics offer lipsticks that are long lasting, feel weightless on application and glide smoothly with high coverage.
The lipsticks have a quick drying formula that maintain a durable film of color for several hours and will leave your lips feeling hydrated and fluffy


The product range features 8 colors
  • Rhea
  • Hera
  • Aphrodite
  • Cupid
  • Oceanus
  • Apollo
  • Voluptas
  • Athena

They are super pigmented lipstick with a creamy formula. The finish is neither glossy nor matte. When I applied it, it felt creamy. Inspite of the creamy formula, it gives a good wear time and color payoff.

What I like about them
  • The feeling of weightlessness on application
  • The coverage, it took only one swipe to get max color
  • The creamy formula
  • The fact that it wasn't drying ( hello MAC Satin)
  • It had a good a wear time
  • Also, that one of them made me lose weight. Seriously when I wore Voluptas, the first comment I got was " Have you lost weight"
For once a company has described their product as they are.

What I didn't like about them
  • The only thing I wished was if the color range was more extensive. I want more!!

Now to the swatches...

Would I recommend it : Yes, in fact I am going to get Oceanus next.

Availability:, Myer
Price: $25 AUD
