Cheaper Tuesdays

Hello 

Today on Cheaper Tuesdays let me show you the new Eyeshadows Palettes from Models Prefer that looks pretty much like Naked Palettes well at least packaging wise.I don't have any Naked Palette but I have seen a lot of them around.

I picked up 2 palettes in Glam Party and Nudes.


I just got them so I have not personally used them except swatching them.

Party Glam

No Filter

Nudes

No Filter 

Now both of the palettes include matte,shimmer and combination of light/Dark shades perfect for day or night wear.

I really like both palettes equally and the colours really blended in perfectly while I was doing the swatches.

There is also a double sided brush included with a sturdy mirror and great packaging making it travel friendly.

For $10 each These palettes don't feel or look cheap at all believe me.

Availability:-Priceline
Have you picked up any of these palette?

The Spring Tag!

I was recently tagged by The Beautiful and Adorable Basmah From Lace and Lattes for the Spring Tag.I l absolutely love her blog if you have not checked it out yet I highly recommend you all to pay her blog a visit.

My Q/A

What's your favorite seasonal drink from Starbucks or another coffee shop?

Let's me tell you honestly I don't like Starbucks I really don't.I don't know why people are crazy about SB.I feel like they don't really have anything exciting that suits my taste so I'll rather stick to my Cold Hot Chocolate.

Accessories - What do you opt for, sandals, floppy hats, flower crowns?


Definitely Sandals,Flats or Flip Flops.I absolutely hate wearing shoes on daily basis I actually can't wear them for long hours.I like anything with open toe flats,sandals and thongs.I'm not a fan of hats and I have never actually worn one lol...flower crowns No I have passed that stage now I'm actually pretty boring.

Music - What's your favorite music to listen to during Spring?

Nothing special I do like to play a lot of Indian music than the western.My music taste stay the same regardless of what season we are in.

Perfume - What's your favorite scent for this time of year?


I have been lazy with buying new perfumes this year because I have quite a few that I need to use up first but I do like this from SC perfume.I once had very similar perfume that I used to use everyday but now this is a replacement for the spring.In addition to this I also like Modern Muse Body Lotion By Estée Lauder.

Candles - What scents will you be burning this season?

I used to be so obsessed with candles that once I enrolled myself into 4 hour candle making class.I drove for 2 hours in a 40 degree temperature and by the time I reached the destination I felt like I turned into a melted candle if you know what I mean.I don't have any candles left but the last one I had was from Ikea.

What do you love most about Spring?

I feel more energetic when the weather starts to change and the fact that the days are longer than the nights I get to do plenty of things during the day.

What are you looking forward to most in Spring? 

Shorts and Singlets and less makeup. I'm not a winter lover and I hate layering up so shorts and singlets or skirts and floral dresses for me.I like to keep my makeup really light during this time so some of my favorites that I'm looking forward to use more are 


I tag 
Beepsa From Glows and Blushes
Kat From kats Colourings 
Gemma From Lady Sapphire 
Reshma From Dazzlegloss
Lily from Lily not Louise 
Leah from Temporary Princess

And everyone else reading this post.So that's it for today I love love love spring and warm weather and so looking forward to the full summer.

Paul Mitchell Spring Loaded Line Review

Since I had YOYO I have been very lazy when it comes to looking after my hair mainly because I have long hair and not enough time.My head full of thick and half curly long hair suffers from Frizziness,Dryness,Split Ends,Dandruff and so on.I dont want to sound like I'm bragging but Everyone seems to fall in love with my long thick hair when I myself really hate them.

Like I mentioned I have half naturally curly hair but I hate to wear them down without straightening my hair and than curling them but it takes a lot of effort seriously and I don't always have time for that.So to solve this issue recently I was introduced to Paul Mitchell's Spring loaded Line that included Spring Loaded Detangling Shampoo,Spring Loaded Frizz Fighting Conditioner and Paul Mitchell Twirl Around.


I have only used the all three products once and I'm pretty impressed with the results.First up, I have the Detangling Shampoo.Most of the time my hair either stay in a bun or in a braid which leaves my hair with a lot of tangles and its not really fun combing dry long hair full of tangles once I air dry them.The shampoo claims to wash away frizz and tangles without roughing up the cuticle.
 and I could not agree more with what It claims to do.As soon as I washed my hair with the shampoo I was able to slip my fingers through my hair without breaking my hair which I thought was awesome.

Shampoo/Conditioner 

I than Used a small amount of Frizz Fighting Conditioner which claims to detangle and smooth out curls instantly.I only used the conditioner on my curls and massaged them gently for about 2-3 minutes and rinsed them out under cold water.I wrapped my freshly washed hair in my old t-shirt (Clean) and let the t-shirt absorb all the water.I than applied generous amount of twirl around Crunch Free Curl Definer and let my hair air dry overnight.In the morning I woke up to beautiful soft looking almost frizz free curls.I felt like as if I had used a curling tong all over on my hair to define the curls but no it was all done by putting no effort and just by treating my hair as I normally do but using the products that are specifically designed for maintaing curls.

Twirl Around Curl Definer

The Twirl Around Curl Definer claims to help curls to bounce all day long.I actually slept on my curls for 2 nights and today on a third day they still look like as if I just curled my hair.I only put small amount of Argan oil on the third day to achieve the 1st day look.I feel confident wearing my curls down without exposing them to heating tools and dozens of other products.

Before 

After 

I honestly have nothing negative to say about the products and the great thing is that these products are 100% sulfate-free.I highly recommend these products if you have curly hair and you find it hard to manage them.

Price:- Spring Loaded Detangling Shampoo $29.95
Spring Loaded Frizz Fighting Conditioner $29.95
Twirl Around Crunch Free Curl Definer $34.95

Mary kay's Lip lacquer Review

Hello Everyone

How is your Friday going?

Back in MAY when I was still subscribed to LUST HAVE IT I received this cute little pot of Mary Kay's Lip Lacquer in Pagoda Rose reminds of the colour of my car which is LONDON ROSE,,,


How cute and floral is the outer packaging,,The pot itself is made of plastic and comes with a brush I have misplaced my brush somewhere so I have been using another one of my lip brush to apply this product.

After Two Swipes

The product inside the pot is pretty pink and glossy and does not feel sticky but it needs to be applied couple of times to achieve the Dark Pink colour otherwise it looks very sheer like a lip stain.It looks really glossy and touch up's are must and once the product is completely wiped off it will leave a stain behind.

I have also used it without a brush just rubbing gently on my lips and it looks like a Tinted Lip Balm just for those days when I can't be bothered applying it with the brush.

Price:- $22 for 4g

Availability:- Mary Kay

Did you receive this Lip Lacquer in your May LHI?

Cheaper Tuesdays

If you are regular visitor here on my blog than you already know that I'm obsessed with Colette Haymen's products.Recently I went to buy a necklace after seeing so many girls wearing them in pretty bright or pastels colours.I'm genuinely not into jewellery that will have to hang around my neck but for a change I thought I will buy at least one.As soon as I walked in CH had 70% off on some of the jewellery only. So as you can see I ended up buying 3 instead of one but but,,,,my favourite is the gold one with little diamonds lined up underneath the necklace line....


I can see myself wearing it soon I paid I guess $6 for it after the discount.Bargain,,,,,
For the other two I paid around $7-8 for both.

I also bought an ear cuff for $2.


Than as soon as I laid my eyes on to this Black handbag I was sold and picked up this last piece for $49.95 again pretty cheap...I don't mind paying anything for CH bags because they are great quality products and much better than any other handbag shop around where I live.The other thing I really like about her bags is that that are really spacious I can carry anything in this particular bag especially if I'm traveling with YOYO...

That's all I got.Enough for this week don't you think....

What have you bought recently everyone?

Not a sponsored post.I paid my hubby's hard earned $$ for all the items listed above.

NYX Shine Killer Review

As soon as the sun starts to shine in summer my T-Zone starts to shine as well.Generally speaking I have dry skin really dry but in summer my t-zone drive me really crazy.Last summer when I was desperately looking for something to kill my shinning nose I invested in NYX shine killer...


"Professional Potion to eliminate the look of oil and shine so face stays matte and fresh all day long"

The packaging is simple and clean I love the black and white combination of a NYX products but the only thing is that I can't really tell how much product is left inside since it's not see through.The product itself has a clear thick gel type consistency very similar to Elf Face primer that I mentioned here.It even feels the same as Elf Primer on my face.


I have used it as a base and on its own and both time My face stayed matte for only around 3 hours after applying this generously on my face.I really like how My foundation glides on really easily like it normally would after applying any silicone based primer but after few hours hours it feels like the makeup on my t-zone starts to slide off which is extremely disappointed to me as it's small 20ml tube worth of $21.95 and I don't consider it cheap.

I have applied this shine killer quite a few times now and It only managed to control the oil on my t-zone for very minimal hours otherwise I did not see much difference on my face while using this product.


Repurchase No.

Have your seen/used NYX Shine Killer? What are your thoughts ?

Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge Review

Few months ago I ordered Real Techniques Brushes and a Miracle Complexion Sponge from Iherb.You can see my haul Here.I was very excited when I purchased this sponge by RT since everyone in my knows was raving about it.Ever since I got this sponge I have only used it about 5-6 times.Prior to this I have never used any kind of sponge or even a Beauty Blender.


On to the price first I paid $6.82 in US Dollars pretty cheap but expensive if I was going to buy it on its own due to the extra $$ for shipping from US to Australia.

At First, I used it with my much loved Benefit Cosmetics Hello Flawless Foundation and I was absolutely stunned to see the results.It left my skin looking flawless with great coverage and smooth finish and no streaks what so ever which I thought was quite impressive considering I have very dry skin and if I put my foundation on with any brush I can still see few dry spots around my lips and in between my both eyebrows.

This egg shaped sponge is great for everyday use and has 3 different sides of it including Rounded side,Precise Tip and Flat edge.I use the rounded side to blend in my foundation and the tip to cover any pimples and blend the foundation around my nose.I don't really use the flat edge for contouring since I prefer my RT Multi Tasking Brush for that.


After using it for only few times it has now started to fall apart (see picture) even after using and washing it gently.I'm not sure what went wrong but I have not really used it much.

Here are few Pro's and Con's of the Miracle Complexion Sponge:-

Pro's

Cheap 
Gives a flawless and smooth finish
Lightweight
Travel Friendly
Works great with liquid foundation
Multi functional Sponge can be used for contouring as well as applying foundation.
Claims to reduce the appearance of the pores and It definitely hides my pores.

Con's 

Not easy. to clean (I wash it with Baby Shampoo and Tea Tree Oil)
Feels greasy even after cleaning it well
Retains product after washing it 
Requires more product to blend in than usual 

I obviously can't compare it to the beauty Blender since I have never used one but the only main issue for me is the sponge falling apart.I will still keep on using it until It completely dies.

Will I purchase it again Unfortunately not I would love to try the Beauty Blender instead.
