What's on my face? Feat. Burberry, Rimmel, Mac, Burt's Bees, Jane Iredale, Make Up Store, Napoleon, Bare Minerals


Burberry Rosewood #9 Sheer Eye Shadow $45.00
This eye shadow is heaven, it is so soft and buttery. The pigment is very sheer but buildable, perfect for a not too full on makeup day. But if I really want to 'Pump up the Jam!' I pair this with a darker chocolate brown shadow through the crease.
available from and selected David Jones Stores 

Rimmel Scandal Eyes Waterproof  eyeliner in Nude $9.95
Wahhhhh! I am coming down with the flu. The first place I notice flu symptoms is my eyes, they go terribly puffy and red. To tone down the redness using a nude liner on your waterline really brightens up your eyes.

Maybelline The Falsies Volume Express Mascara $16.36
Usually I love this mascara but this is a new tube and I think I got a dud, sometimes this happens. The formula is too wet and has been clumping my lashes. Will wait and see if it gets better once it dries out a bit but I am going to try an new mascara very soon.

Mac Peachtwist Blush $41.00
I am not totally sure this blush works on me, it applies very dark and I need to blend it out quite a lot. It must have been purchase on one of the rare days I was very tanned. This might be going to a friend who has a darker skin tone to be able to wear this gorgeous colour better than I can.

Burt's Bees Tinted Lip Balm in Rose $14.95
Moisturizing with a pinch of colour, my lips need moisture they are already dry and its not even proper winter weather yet.
available from and selected Myer stores.


Napoleon Auto Pilot Pre- Foundation Skin Primer $55.00
This is great if you want your foundation to glide on, especially if you use a heavy foundation. It helps blend out and doesn't let the product settle into lines and creases.
available from 

Jane Iredale Glow Time Mineral BB Cream $61.20
Ok a little goes a long way with this product, like you only need under a pea sized amount to do your whole face. This is a very high coverage BB cream, comparable to the coverage you get from Revlon Colour Stay and Estee Lauder Double Wear.
It is also a Vegan and Gulten free product.
available from

Bare Minerals Stroke of Light Concealer $26.95
Great for brightening up the under eye area, I like to apply it slightly lower than directly under my eyes. It gathers in creases if you apply it too close to your eye.
available from

Make Up Store High Tech Lighter in Full Moon $32.00
WOWZERS! This is an amazing cream high lighter! I prefer cream cheek products as it doesn't sit on top of the skin it melts in and looks like you have a natural glow. I warm this cream up with your fingers and pat on on with my ring fingers on my brow bone, cheek bones and cupids bow. I LOVE IT!
available from and The Make Up Store
