I am so impressed with myself. This post took ages for me to write but it was so fun. When I first saw that I have spent over $6,500 on makeup, I was a little bit worried, but now I’m thinking makeup makes me really happy so I am actually very proud. To be honest, I think most of the reason it’s so much is because Australian prices are ridiculous and high-end makeup is very expensive.

If there is any product that you would like me to review or do a tutorial with, comment below or Contact Me

Thank you so much for reading.

Product Review ~ Shaaanxo The Remix Palette

Hey readers…

If you follow my Twitter then you would know that recently my BH Cosmetics order came with Shaaanxo’s new eyeshadow palette – Shaaanxo The Remix 18 Colour Eyeshadow Palette. I got it for the introductory price of $18.99 (USD) so if you’re wanting to order it you better do it quick! Shaaanxo The Remix Eyeshadow Palette I really wanted her original palette but I couldn’t really justify it because I don’t really use lipstick palettes so as soon as she announced this eyeshadow palette I knew I had to get it.
23549811_504712629908033_1378218676_n

The packaging is so beautiful. It has two sides, one side with the 9 eyeshadows from her first palette and the other side with the 9 new shades. Both sides have a mirror and the pans are huge! Roughly 2.1g/0.074oz of each shade. For comparison, in the Anastasia Store Modern Renaissance Palette you get 0.7g/0.02oz of each shade. That’s triple the size!

I will be honest, I haven’t used it yet – only swatched it as soon as it arrived. So, as I do, I will pictures up. It swatched amazingly, each shade is super pigmented and they blended out really nicely and easily on my arm from my fingers. I am so excited to use it on my eyes!!

No, I have not forgotten about this, although for a while I’ll admit I did. I think I’m back on track now though. I have a few posts all done and ready to post. Anyway, on the 29th of April, I had one of the best nights of my life. Yes, as you can tell from the title, I went and saw Little Mix in Sydney on their Glory Days tour. It was amazing. The atmosphere and energy in the arena was unlike any concert I’d previously been to. I think Lachlan enjoyed it too.

I spent the whole drive down to Sydney listening to Little Mix and it still didn’t prepare me for how amazing they were live. Once we arrived at Olympic Park Lachlan and I got the healthiest dinner we could possibly have, McDonalds. We then stood in line for merch but of course that was taking forever so I gave up, we went inside and I bought a tour book and a lanyard.

We then went inside and watched the last half of Zoë Badwi’s performance. Then it was time for Little Mix and it was incredible. I loved every second of it! The choreography was amazing and their voices and harmonies were perfect.

Thank you Lachlan for coming with me, I had so much fun.

June Top 5

Hey readers…

It’s almost the end of June so I thought I’d do another top 5 post, on everything I’ve been loving this month and last.  I am slowly getting back into the routine of blogging again. It’s holidays next week so hopefully by the end of them I will be a lot better. Prices are in AUD.

1. Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium Nuit Blanche Perfume

yslbonb50

I love love love this. It smells so good. Sweet and sexy, perfect for a night out. It stays on forever. Plus the packaging is beautiful! It’s relatively expensive at $99 for 30mL, $165 for 50mL and  $218 for 90mL. Although as I mentioned in the beginning, prices are in AUD and everything is overpriced here. Will I buy more when it runs out? Definitely.

2. Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer

NARS-Radiant-Creamy-Concealer-group-shot

This concealer is amazing. The formula is great, really easy to blend and it doesn’t crease. The coverage is buildable and it is very long lasting. It costs $44 at Mecca for 6.5mL.

3. Colourpop Ultra Satin Lip ~ Alyssa

Ultra-Satin-Alyssa_1024x1024

If you read my Colourpop Makeup Haul you would have seen this. I’ve been wearing this all the time. I reach for this everytime I do my makeup, not because it’s called Alyssa but because the formula is amazing. It doesn’t dry out my lips and it’s the perfect pinky-nude. I love it so much.

4. Colourpop Pressed Powder Shadow ~ Come and Get It.

come_and_get_it_1_1024x1024

This one is another one you would’ve seen if you read my Colourpop Makeup Haul. I didn’t expect to love this one as much as I do. I wear this a lot too. On days where I’m wearing very natural makeup just on my lid and then in the center of my lid when I’m doing a more intense look. I love the rose gold and the formula is amazing.

5. By Terry Baume de Rose

i-003628-baume-de-rose-spf15-1-378

I hate that I love this. I got a sample of this in my Mecca Beauty Loop Sample Box post and as I said in that, if I like it I will have to thing long and hard about buying it again. It’s been two months, I’ve completely used the sample and I catch myself reaching for what isn’t there. I honestly loved this and I need someone to convince me to spend $78 on it. It did an amazing job of hydrating my lips, they were always so soft after using it and it smelt amazing!

Thank you for reading. Hopefully I’ll have another post up this week.

Makeup and Outfits

Hey readers…

So it’s been a while… a month actually. I’d like to apologise. Honestly I wish I had been consistent with my posting in the last month but I just couldn’t. I would’ve liked to but I needed a break. I had to get myself sorted out before I even thought of posting again. I don’t want this to happen again. I like blogging and it’s a really nice way for me to relax, so I’m going to try my hardest to get back on track with this. It may take a while so bare with me but I think I will get there eventually. Today’s post is nothing special, just some of the makeup and outfits that I have done while I’ve been gone. I won’t go into lots of detail, probably just pictures with a caption for the outfits so if you’re curious about anything, leave a comment below or Contact Me.

Colourpop Makeup Haul

Hey readers…

A couple of weeks ago, I made a pretty big order on Colourpop because I felt like it. It has finally come and I thought I would show you what I got. Prices are in USD.

18596493_426172101095420_1751166951_o.jpg

I will post swatches of everything down below so if that’s all you want to see then scroll to the end.

Eyeshadow Blending Brush

18519116_426172174428746_782299653_o

Price – $6. This blending brush feels very firm and I think it will blend out eyeshadows really nicely.

Super Shock Highlighter ~ Wisp

18553058_426184604427503_40435320_o

Price – $8. This pearlized highlighter is a really pretty dark bronze/gold colour. It comes with 4.2g/0.15 Oz of product which is a lot, it’s very pigmented and I’m very impressed by it.

Super Shock Highlighter ~ Frosted

18519222_426184741094156_19573178_o

Price – $8. This one is exactly the same except it’s a lighter gold colour. Again, extremely pigmented.

Super Shock Highlighter ~ Whipped

18552909_426184797760817_1376204158_o

Price – $8. This is a tie dye highlighter and I think it’s my favourite. Pink, gold, bronze, it’s so pretty.

Pressed Powder Shadow ~ Come and Get It 

18554646_426172181095412_718439269_n

Price – $5. This is just a standard pressed powder eyeshadow. 1.5g/0.05 Oz of product. It’s a rose gold colour and I will be buying a Z-Palette soon to put it in.

Super Shock Shadow ~ Weenie

18519174_426179191094711_1900477827_o

Price – $5. All of these super shock eyeshadows that I bought are very pigmented. They have 2.1g/0.07 Oz of product. This one is a slighter darker metallic rose gold colour.

Super Shock Shadow ~ Cornelius

18575682_426179184428045_1455716495_o

Price – $5. This one is a light matte brown to use as a transition shade in my crease.

Super Shock Shadow ~ Moonshine

18575392_426179417761355_185497182_o

Price – $5. This one is a dark brown glitter shade with yellow/gold reflects.

Price – $6. 3.2g/0.11 Oz of product. A red/brown shade. From what I have heard, these lipsticks do not transfer and they are completely matte so I’m very interested to see how this goes. I accidentally bought two of these so I will have to figure out what to do with one of them.

13 Reasons Why

Hey readers…

Netflix original show, 13 Reasons Why. You’ve either seen it or you’ve heard about it. Maybe you’ve seen all the controversy around it and want to watch it for yourself and make an opinion of it. If that’s the case, I will try not to spoil too much.

I binged watched in a couple of days as soon as it came out and it was intense. I will admit, I did have to stop watching it multiple times because it was a little too upsetting to watch. I know that some people believe that it is not appropriate for some people to watch especially people who are contemplating suicide because it shows them what life would be like after they killed themselves. Some people also believe that it just isn’t something that should be shown on Netflix because of the topics it shows. However, I disagree. I disagree completely. 13 Reasons Why realistically demonstrated rape, self harm and suicide. They didn’t put a barrier on it and they didn’t romanticise it. It showed the truth of what happens and it allows viewers to really understand the impact that words and actions can have.

For those of you reading this and trying to decide whether or not to watch it, do it. Seriously, these issues are so real in today’s society through bullying, trauma and mental illness. It needs to be talked about. I believe there is no use in hiding it and covering it up, so many people could be helped if we stop treating it like someone seeking attention rather than someone who needs help. I will say one thing before moving on, if you are struggling with rape, self harm or suicide and you are thinking about watching this, think carefully. There are warnings at the beginning of some episodes indicating that there could be something triggering involved. Do not take those warnings lightly. Even though I knew what was coming, it was still extremely triggering for me to watch.

Now, not completely related to 13 Reasons Why but, about a week or two ago I learnt about the ‘game’ ‘Blue Whale’ that originated in Russia. I have been seeing more and more news around it lately and it has reached Australia and New Zealand. I am urging you not to play it please. If you have no idea what I am talking about, it is an app that you download onto your phone. It hacks it and you get sent 50 tasks to complete over 50 days. You have to complete self harming tasks and then eventually to win the game you are told to commit suicide. The app has been removed off the app store and off google play as far as I am aware. If you see this app anywhere please report it to the police. This is not something to joke about and teens have already been affected by it.

Thank you for reading. If you can’t already tell, I am very passionate about these topics and I believe it is something that desperately needs to be talked about.

Love Alyssa

A Day In My Life – School Day

Hey readers…

Today I thought I would write about what a typical day in my life involves during the week. I will have another one up later on a typical weekend.

Anyway, as you know, unfortunately I am still at school until the end of this year so that means early starts, lots of coffee and boredom. Most days my alarm goes off at 7:30am. I have perfected the art of getting ready in half an hour which is great. Most mornings I will lie in bed for as long as possible trying to come up with a way out of school – it barely works. Dad normally makes me get out of bed at 7:40am. First thing I do is put my uniform on and then reality kicks in and I realise I’m going to be stuck in that for a lot longer than I would like. I pack my school bag and take my water bottle out of the fridge. Some of you are probably thinking, what about lunch and breakfast? Well, I don’t take lunch to school. Yes it’s bad not to. Yes I should but I don’t get hungry at school. If I do there is always the overpriced canteen. Most days I can leave and go home at lunch time anyway so it’s not too big of an issue. And I don’t breakfast. Yes it is bad too. Sometimes Dad makes me a coffee and sometimes I buy one on the way to school because I cannot function without coffee. Anyway, depending on how late I am and how I’m feeling I may put on makeup and brush my hair. Honestly, I’ve given up on that. My hair just goes up in a bun unbrushed and I may even put on a little bit of primer/moisturiser but normally I don’t bother. However, if I do want to make an effort, I will brush my hair and put on some makeup.

18452310_423023681410262_1226001543_o

Literally just some primer, tinted moisturiser, concealer if I need it, translucent powder, matte bronzer, blush, a tiny bit of highlighter, eyebrow powder, mascara, lip balm and some setting spray. Compared to what I would normally wear, it’s not that much.

Then I will brush my teeth, put on some perfume and leave at 8:10am. On a good day it takes me 10 minutes to drive to school so I have a good 5 minutes to walk in and maybe say hello to a few friends before the bell rings.

Then I suffer at school for too long. Have a look at My Subjects if you want to see what I do. At lunch time I will either go home, go out with friends for an hour or we will sit down and talk.

After school I drive home, watch some Netflix then do some study by myself and then some with Dad. Of course if I have assessments to do, I will do them. I also like to draft new blog posts so I can stay on top of them. I have dinner and then if I have no homework to finish I will have a shower and talk to Caleb. I try to sleep before midnight every night but of course that barely ever happens.

Thank you for reading.

Love Alyssa xx
