Face of Australia | Lip Quench Lipstick

Hey :) Hope your all well!
Recently i've purchused the Face of Australia Lip Quench Lipstick and thought i'd do a quick revyouuuuuuu. ?? hah.
Firstly it's enriched with natural moisturisers including Jojoba Oil, Vitamin E and Shea Butter. It's also SPF 30. Sounds good right!?
The packaging actually has alot of writing on it which is different for a lip stick and I found it hard to get the lid off but I did like the matte finish on the packaging as well as a window which it has on the top with makes it so much eaiser to find.
I purchsed mine in 'Pink Champage'
It's quiet a bright pink and reminds me alot of fairy floss!
I'll say now it's extremly moisturising and I do love the colour on but it really isn't for people with constant dry lips like myself. If you have the slightest dry lips it will sink in and really show off any cracks or dryness showing, well with this colour anyways.
On the plus side on the rare occasion when my lips are smooth it looks great and I certaintly would wear it everyday if I could!
You can see it on me on a recent post by clicking here!

Overall its a fairly good product but this colour is not great with dry lips. I prob wouldn't purchase it again either :)

Style Sunday | Miley Cyrus

Happy Sunday!
Now I was one of those kids that absolutely loved watching Hannah Montana growing up so basically that just makes me a massive Miley Cyrus fan.

I adore her fashion sense and love her ever changing look. Lately she chopped off her lushous locks and sent everyone freaking out going OH MAH GAWH MILEY YOH LOOK LIKE DRACO MALFOY WOT HAV YA DONE GURL!?
At first I didn't really like it, but tbh I really love it now! :)

Here is one of her more sophisticated looks and one of my favs. I love the shoulder length tousled look with the ombre effect.

When her hair was brunette and long was def my fav!

I absolutely love her street style! So hear are a few of my favorites from over the years....

So I hoped you liked this little style sunday :)

I'll be taking suggestions for next week style sunday, so comment who you would like me to do one on! I'd loveee to do one of your suggestions :)
Have a great week.

Ed Sheeran 2013!

Hey Hey! :)
So on Wednesday the 6th of March I went to the Ed Sheeran concert in Melbourne! And i'm going to tell you now it was AMAZING! I got up at the crack of dawn a 4am and had a 6 hour bus ride down to Melbourne. Mega boring! I arrived in Melbourne around 11am and there were already people outside festival hall, luckily I didn't have to line up as I had seating tickets :) I also went with 2 other friends who got a later bus and didn't arrive until 5pm. (Oh and my mum traveled down with me, so cheers for that mum!)

What I wore
Peplum top - Cotton On
Plain black skirt - Cotton On
Black wedged boots - Dotti

It was stinking hot in Melbourne that night so I didn't put to much effort into my hair or makeup!
The show started at 7:30 with Ed's first support act Gabrielle Aplin. Followed by his other support act Passenger. Passenger was great! He has such a unique voice, i'm def a fan of him now! :)
And then finally at 9 O'clock Ed came out!!!

A list of what he sang last night.... (By my memory) :P
Give Me Love
Grade 8
Wayfaring Stranger (Cover)
Small Bump
Wake Me Up 
Be My Husband by Nina Simone (Cover)
Kiss Me with Gabrielle Aplin
No Diggity (Cover)

Heart's On Fire by Passenger with Passenger 

Lego House
You Need Me, I Don't Need You 
Parting Glass (cover of traditional Irish song)
A Team

My highlights of the night:
  • Passenger singing his song 'I hate' 
  • Ed singing 'Wayfaring Stranger' the whole room was quiet during the whole song it was amazing, he even sang a bit of the song without a microphone it was chilling!
  • Ed singing Wake Me Up and UNI - My favorite songs of his!
  • During his cover of ' Be My Husband' he all got us singing the chorus 
  • Passenger and Ed did a duet of Passengers song 'Hearts on Fire' its such a beautiful song, and there voices sounded so amazing together!
  • Ed getting everyone to be quiet by doing a 'Univeral shhhhhhhhhh'
  • He then spoke about if someone is making noise you shouldn't hit them but stroke them... if not stroke harder.... and of course some girl started yelling stuff, and he said they should be stroked xP
  • When Ed came back on the stage for the encore with the aussie flag and sung 'You need me, I dont need you' i swear to god it went on for 10 minutes!!!! It was legit extordinary to watch! It's the best thing I have ever seen, like ever!
  • He ended the night with his hit A Team which of course everyone sang along to.
  • Just the fact that Ed does all the music himself, its great to watch him slowly build up each song!

I could actually contintue to write about the concert for hours about how much I loved it. Overall it was an amazing night! Everyone has to see Ed live at least once before they kick the bucket!
He is the most extorinary performer. I definatley want to see him live again!

Review | Maybelline Color Tattoo 24hr.

Hey there! Hope your having a great day :)
Today I thought I'd do a quick review on the Maybelline 24 hour color stay tattoo eyeshadow.
So firstly Maybelline says  Dare to wear our longest-lasting shadow. Our ink technology creates super-saturated color. Cream gel smoothes on for vibrant color that does not fade. 

I purchased mine in two colors:
Too Cool - Makes a great base for your eyeshadow but also looks great on its own. Is a bight metallic white color. Has great pigmentation.

Bad to the Bronze - A great base for any bronzed/toned look. Looks great on its on so its good to apply if your in a hurry. 

Alot of people wonder if they really do last "24 hours" I found that they don't and start to eventually come off after about 8 hours in my experience, but this can change to each individual. They are by far the longest lasting eye shadows in my experience! The eye-shadow itself is actually quiet hard to remove I've found with even eye makeup remover.

Overall they are a great long lasting eyeshadow that doesn't crease and has an amazing color range. I'll defiantly be trying some more of the other colors.

February Favourites

Hey! :) 
Wow March is here already! So since it's the start of a new month everyone's monthly favourites are popping up and I simply love reading them so here are mine :)

St. Ives - Green Tea Scrub - I simply love this face scrub! It's a great exfoliater for the face and actually feels like its cleaning the skin. I've found that it's great with sensitive skin as well  The actual product does resemble the color of snot though! I picked mine up from Priceline I cant remember the exact price though :)

Girlz Only - Dry Shampoo - I don't use dry shampoo all that much but I saw that this certain brand is being sold in target for below $2! So I grabbed 3 cans of it, and I really like them. They get the job done if you need a quick refresh on your hair and they all have a really nice smell.

Facial Wipes - Now i'm a major fan of any facial wipes, as long as I have something to give my face a quick wipe down and refresh im happy! :) I got these certain ones from K-Mart for $2.

Maybelline Color Tattoo 24hr - I actually have a review on these coming up so I won't talk about it to much but this certain one is in 'Too Cool' It makes my eyes look so much bigger as mine are tiny!

Australis Fresh and Flawless Powder - By far my favorite powder at the moment! and is a dupe to the MAC studio fix powder. I just did a review on this Australis Powder which you can read by clicking here

Eyelash Curler - A must for anyone with small eyelashes or small eyes. They make my eyes look so much more open! I picked this one up from Big W for around $10.

My song for this month is One Directions cover of One Way or Another.
Plus it's for charity so make sure you get your bum on iTunes and purchasers it! :)

Have a great month!
