Review: Eleanor Dorn Makeup Brushes - Eye Set

Hi lovelies!

In December, I purchased the Eleanor Dorn Eye Set, a handy brush kit including 6 eye brushes and a storage cylinder for $80. Firstly, I love the appearance of the brushes - they have black handles and glossy black ferrules, with 'Eleanor Dorn' embossed on one side and the brush number embossed on the other side in gold. The black and gold colour scheme is just so classy, and it's nice to have brushes that aren't the standard silver ferrule with black handle. The black and gold also extends to the storage cylinder - it's black with Eleanor Dorn Makeup embossed on the top in gold. I actually really, really like the storage cylinder as well - it's great for travel, and while you can use the two halves as brush holders, I prefer to keep all of my eye brushes inside the closed cylinder to protect them from dust. All of these brushes are natural bristle brushes, save for the Brow Brush.


Swatch & Review: OPI James Bond Collection - Honey Ryder

Hey Girls!

I have an oldie but a goodie to show you today. OPI Honey Ryder was released with the OPI James Bond collection back in 2012, but I only really had a chance to wear it now.  Honey Ryder is a gorgeous yellow gold textured polish that applies like a dream in two coats.


Swatch & Review: HARE Polish Neon Palm

Hey lovelies,

Today I have a really gorgeous polish from HARE polish to show you! Released with the 'The Tropics are Calling' collection, Neon Palm has a sea green jelly base full of neon pink and copper glitters. Here, I've layered it over OPI Mermaid Tears.


Lipstick Swatch: MAC X Nasty Gal Collection - Gunner

Hey Girls!

Today I have a lipstick from the HIGHLY anticipated MAC X Nasty Gal collaboration! The launch of this collection was pushed back so many times that many of us were left wondering if it would ever be released. The collection contains three lipsticks - Stunner, Runner, and Gunner. Gunner is a gorgeous deep purple lipstick in a matte finish. In this photo it's pictured with Runner (the red lipstick), also from the Nasty Gal collection and Hautecore (the black lipstick), which was originally released with the Punk Couture collection, and was recently re-released in an online-only sale for Black Friday.


Swatch & Review: Sally Hansen Color Frenzy - Sea Salt

Hey lovelies,

I have a glitter topper from the recent Sally Hansen Color Frenzy line to show you. The color Frenzies are a collection of glitter toppers which you can build up for texture or layer over another color as I've done here.


Lipstick Swatch: MAC Keepsakes Red Lip Bag - Ruby Woo!

Hey Girls!

I hope you all have had a lovely Christmas and New Year's celebrations. Today, I have a set from MAC which was released just before Christmas. Released alongside other sets such as the Nude Lip bag and the Smokey Eye bag, the Red Lip bag contains three items in limited edition packaging. It contains a lipliner, lipstick and lipglass in the ubiquitous shade Ruby Woo. A lot of people were excited because there currently isn't a lip pencil specifically for Ruby Woo; Cherry is the best match from the permanent MAC lip pencil line.
