REVIEW: Sportsgirl - Pout About It Lip Colours

I'm forever into lipsticks, particularly fashion colours which makes these inexpensive, amazing quality lip colours the perfect choice!

With 16 gorgeous shades to choose from,  and two popular finishes - matte & creme, you are sure to find a lippy to suit your need and one to take you out of your comfort zone for some fun! And if that's not enough to send you racing there they are also NOT TESTED ON ANIMALS!!!

Colour swatches of the shades below
COLOUR: Wonderlust
COLOUR: Beauty Queen
COLOUR: Berrylicious
COLOUR: Bombshell
COLOUR: Fruit Tingle 
COLOUR: Mad About You

COLOUR: Orange Crush


PRICE: AU $9.95 each ($2.48 per gm)

CONSISTENCY: Matte or Creme

HOW TO APPLY: The lipsticks can be applied with a lip brush or straight from the bullet.

WHO IT WILL SUIT: With such a large array of colour and tones there is a colour to suit everyone. I'd suggest getting a few and mixing your own signature colour!

PROS: Lots of colours to choose from, available at your local Sportsgirl store, inexpensive, not tested on animals, matte finishes are still moisturising on your lips - very comfortable to wear, long lasting.

CONS: Darker colours can stain the lips (but that can also be a good thing!!!).

TOM FORD Eyeshadow Review & Application!

Well, well, well do I have some amazing news for comes in the form of the very best eyeshadow you ever have set your eyes upon and once you try it your eyes will not know what to do with themselves and the incredible colour that will wash their lids. A little dramatic - No!

I had gone a little crazy finally went on a massive Tom Ford makeup spree and picked up some incredible goods which I will review in the coming weeks. I was desperate to start with the eyeshadows as my expectations of the quads was completely blown the best way possible!

Tom Ford Packaging

Tom Ford Eyeshadow Quad Prices:
AU       $100
USA     $78
Euro     €72
Pound   £68

Consistency: Extremely fine pressed powder.

How to apply: The applicators supplied with the palettes are sufficient especially as they have thoughtfully included a cute blending brush. Alternatively any type of eye blending brush is ideal.

Who will it suit: There is a vast variety of colours the covers a large spectrum of the colour wheel. I have no doubt there is a palette to suit everyone. The two I have chosen are suitable to most skin tones and gives me a variety of matte, sheer sparkle, satin and shimmer finishes. 

PROS: Exceptional quality, colour blends very easily and pigment is strong. Large variety of colours to suit everyone and packaging is luxurious particularly the large compact mirror when the palette is opened. Applicators supplied are ideal and it's terrific they have included the small blending brush. Compared to other brands on par with Tom Ford and slightly below the value for money is favourable. Wears well and longevity is great.

CONS: Can be perceived as pricey when compared to other high end palettes. THATS ALL!!

Cara Delevingne Makeup Look!

We all love her, her look, her attitude, her style and now her makeup!

Cara Delevingne is me.....and the world.

It was so hard setting out to do a makeup inspired by her as there is only one Cara, and this Zoe looks nothing like her. The amazing thing
is we don't have to look like her to get the same makeup look - promise!

I recreated a look she so beautifully wore at a Issa London Spring/Summer 2013 show.
