GOODIES UNDER $20 - Rimmel Colour Show Off Lipstick - Kiss Me (140) - Swatch

Rimmel Colour Show Off Lipsticks R.R.P at about $13 here in Australia.

These lipsticks were a big surprise to me! In the past I have been dissapointed with some Rimmel colours, but I really like this range! (

Cute pink packaging, cute Watermelon smell and Cute colour range! Highly pigmented colours with a rich creme texture.

Doesn't last all day but still has a decent staying power. (After-all, it is a creme based lippie!)

I own two colours from this range, SHOCKING PINK and KISS ME (swatched below) and i'm pretty sure I will be coming back for more.

I recomend this to anybody who wants a punch of colour to an everyday look. Well worth checking out!

Hey everyone!

I recently received a parcel of goodies from my buddies From Hellcat Cosmetics -A new australian alternative makeup label. What I have sampled from their products so far I have fallen in love with, so I was really excited to try out the new Punk-ass paints range. The lovely ladies sent me a sample in each color, much to my delight!!

First thing I noticed were the super cute labels - of course i'm a sucker for things like that! Electric pink zebra with "The Cramps" style font? Yes please!

The second thing I noticed (as soon as I dipped my liner brush into the pot) was how soft and silky the formula was. At first that made me a little weary as to how bright the color would turn out, as I have been disappointed with colored gels and paints before.

However, as soon as I put brush to skin, I was immediately impressed. Colors so bright they were almost shocking!.. and you all know me, i'm all about BRIGHT!

A smooth gliding formula, that sets matte dry in moments. Little product is needed for a bright effect, which means at $16.99 AUD you're getting more for your buy and a longer lasting product. Definitely a product I will be stocking my kit with from now on. My favorites being the Lollypop pink, Agent Orange and Grasshopper green.

For anyone wondering what these could be used for, there are a number of things. Bases to softer or metallic products would be best, but because they are waterproof and set, they can even be worn on their own. Great for a lid color on a cut crease, without that stiff, weird feeling.

Another great idea to spice up a basic look is to use these to add a pop of color to your waterline.

I would also recommend these to any face painters. Great for Halloween time or masquerade styles.

All in all, what really impressed me is the way these gels blend! Take a look for yourselves...

Even with a quick smudge of the finger they blend together quite well!

Heres some color swatches of the whole colour range:

Everything is quite bright and matte, however the Tsunami has a lovely metallic sheen to it which would be beautiful for dark smokey eyes.

In conclusion: These "Punk-Ass Paints" are a great all around, multi-use product, that any alternative girl or fan of bright colors would love!

Thank you Hellcat, you've impressed me, again!

..and thanks for reading! Stay tuned for my next review for tomorrow, on Rimmel Mascaras!

Charli Le Mindu 2011 Looks! (SS11)

I have been a big fan of Charli Le Mindu's designs from the first minute I ever saw them. Being a fan of everything kitsch and tacky, so seeing this collection made me fall in love all over again.
Everything is so god-damn adorable! From flamingos to stripper platforms to leopard print, my god.. I feel like they had somehow found a list of everything I've ever loved and incorporated it into one range. (Psht. Yeah, right!)

Here's some of my favourites.

As for the makeup - I absoloutely love it. I have always been a fan of cat eyes , dramatic brows and black/red lips.
To describe it, it's just like a Lichtenstein painting or a 60s style Barbie!

Whiiiiiich brings me to my whole point here, this will be the inspiration for my next makeup tutorial!

I had a quick little play around with it tonight. (Excuse the low quality picture, I said it was a quick one!)

I will re-do this look tomorrow night along with the step by step video for you all to check out! So keep your eyes out for it.

Hope you love this range just as much as I do! xxxx

Favorite product of the week 17/1

Revlon Matte - “Pink Pout”
Retails at about $21.99

Three reasons why I love it so much.
— It’s such an adorable shade of baby pink with a tiny hint of lilac. This is a colour I have spent FOREVER trying to find!
— The consistency is fabulous! I was a little hesitant at first to try this range as Revlon colours have let me down in the past. I am more than impressed, now owning nearly ever colour in the range.
— It’s long lasting - I can wear this to work all day without having to re apply.
Check it out!!! You won't regret it.


I swear i'm the only person I know who is actually really excited for this one. Everyone tells me the packaging looks too tacky for their liking, but it's just the right amount of tacky for me! Very excited! <3

What are your thoughts on the range? :)
