Spin all spring 600, Better and brighter 700, woke up like this 100, glo-rious pink 200, pink rules 300, red-y set go 500
Swatches from left to right

Rimmel Moisture Renew Sheer and Shine Lipstick comes in a beautiful strong pink packing.  In Australia these 6 shades are available. The formula is very moisturisng, glides smoothly and hydrate my dry lips very well. It also contains Vitamins A,C & E, Hyaluronic filling sphere and antioxidants.

These lipsticks are truly sheer and also gives shine to my lips.  The darker shades have better pigmentation and longevity.  Lighter shades looks very natural and good for no make up looks. My favourite shades are Spin all spring 600 and glo-rious pink 200, they are bright shades and looks very natural on my skin tone. The least favourite is woke up like this 100, it is almost invisible on my lips.

I like Rimmel Moisture Renew Sheer and Shine lipsticks, they are great for those who want sheer hydrating lipstick with antioxidants and Spf.

Maybelline Blushed Nude Eyeshadow Palette Review

Price:25.95$ from Priceline, Chemist warehouse, supermarkets, big W, Target

Maybelline is one of my favourite brand, I can not resist to buy this beautiful palette when it was on half price at woolies. I pick this for 13$ which is quite reasonable price and it means almost 1$ for each shade. I am using it for few days, here is the swatches and my review.

Swatches from left to right with out primer
  • The palette comes in cute light weight pink packing with two sponge applicators. I use my own brush to apply eye shadows.
  • Personally, I like the shade selection of this palette, it contains pink, brown, mauve and grey shades. It is suitable for all skin tones but lighter shades do not show very well on dark skin.
  • The palette has all shimmery shades, only one shade in top raw (5th from left) looks matte but it has very light shimmers.
  • The pigmentation vary from colour to colour, darker shades are more pigmented but you need to work on lighter shades. Also you need to use more quantity for lighter shades but for darker shades, one swipe is enough to show colour.
  •  The case is same with longevity, darker shades last for 6+ hours but light shades disappear quicker.
  • It is not very easy to work with these shadow, for better colour pay off, I need to apply and blend them several time.
  • My favourite shades are on bottom row, all of them are pigmented, only the last one is glittery. While in the top row shade No 1,3,5 are chalky and least pigmented, it is hard to work with them.
  • For better colour pay off I highly recommend using primer underneath.
  • This palette is Made in USA. It is easily available and often goes on sale at supermarkets and pharmacies.
  • The palette has few similarities with UD naked 3, and some shades are quite similar. But I do not think that it is justify to compare it with 83$ palette.
  • This palette is great for those who want an affordable shimmer eyeshadow palette with pink and brown tones.
  • The palette is not for those who want matte shades and more interested in lighter colour eyeshawdos.
Overall, I like Maybelline Blushed Nude Eyeshadow palette, the formula is good (not very good) while shade selection and pigmentation is better than some other drugstore palettes in Australia. Do not worry about hefty price tag, you can get it easily on discounted price.

The Most Expensive Drugstore Eyeshadow Palette in Australia

Beauty products are expensive in Australia, specially drugstore makeup is very overpriced. Nude By Nature Natural Wonders Eye palette is the winner in term of price and it costs 49.95$. Currently It is the most expensive drugstore palette in Australia.

Nude by Nature has recently released this eyeshadow palette, it has nice packing and contains 10 beautiful shades. But I was really shocked when I found its price (which is very high for drugstore palette). Ten eyeshadows for 50$ means 5$ for each shade and the price is equal to high end brands like Urban Decay and TOO faced.

But we can wait for Priceline 40% off make up sale and can get it for 30$. Nude by Nature also has regular offers on their online store and you can grab it from there too.

Have you tried this palette or do you know any other expensive drugstore palette.  Love to hear your thoughts!

Models Prefer Radiance Collection Ultimate Illuminating Palette (Cream) Review

Price: 12$ from Priceline
I got it during Priceline 40% off make up sale, you can see details here

 Swatches from left to right Cream 1, Cream 2 and Cream 3

Here is a quick review of Models Prefer Radiance Collection Ultimate Illuminating Palette

It has strong sleek packing with mirror.
The shade selection is wearable for light to medium skin tones.
The formula is pigmented but not very creamy, (may be Canberra's cold weather is freezing it) but I feel that it works better if I use my warm fingers.
It do last on my face for long time.(I have dry skin)
It is affordable, and you can create different looks with it.

It is not very hydrating, but it is good for normal skin.
Application is not very easy, you have to struggle to get out the product.
It is not very easy to blend, you need to work out on it.
It do highlight your skin's texture like pores or scares.

Overall, this palette is ok, I am not blown away by the formula but still I can play with it.
Have you tried any illuminating palettes? Can you recommend some.

The Body Shop 5$ haul

After using benefit benetint, I was interested to try some other brand's lip and check tint. The body shop lip and check tint has some good reviews but TBS is too far from my place. I was just browsing their product and found that this limited edition lip and check stain Scarlet Starlet doll is down to 5$. It is  TBS Iconic lip and check stain which is dressed up in new art deco design for Christmas 2015 . I added it into my cart but shipping was the real killer, I searched free shipping code on google and luckily got it. I used code THANKYOU and got free shipping. TBS also offer three free samples and you need to choose them at the end.
  Scarlet starlet lip and check doll  and three free samples

Size comparison of  Scarlet starlet lip and check doll and free samples

The samples are actually good in size, I am really excited to try them.The total cost of all these goodies are only 5$ including shipping.

Overall, I am really very happy with my purchase, the order was very well packed and I got it after 4 week days. I highly recommend The Body Shop online store, there are still lots of items on sale, you can find them here.

Three mascaras to try

These three mascaras are great for different eyelash looks and they are worth trying. I have used them and loved them. It depends on your personal choice,which lash looks you want to achieve.

Benefit They are Real Mascara (20$-42$): Water proof, long lasting perfect for dramatic, long and thick eyelashes. 

Rimmel Wonder'full Volume Colourist Mascara (18.95$): Great for natural looking dark lashes, suitable for every day look. It claims to darken the eyelash colour with regular use.

Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara(21.95$): Non water proof, very easy to remove, best for long curled eyelash looks.

These three mascara are for three different purposes, they can not replace each other.  Have you tried any of them?
