LUST HAVE IT // Women's Beauty Box August + September | Unboxing + Initial Thoughts - CassandraMyee

So you may [or may not] have noticed the very long time between my last Lust Have It post; I'm not sure what was going on but early last week I received the August* bag and then on Friday the September* bag turned up on my doorstep, a little bit later than expected, but still arrived none the less! I have decided to lump both month's together into one big giant unboxing and initial thoughts posts, so if you just want to see the latest September box, scroll down about halfway to find it. If you are unfamiliar with Lust Have It, they are an Australian beauty box company, that send out a bag full of beauty goodies each month for only AUD $19.95, and ship over to NZ too!

THE WEEKLY POST COLLECTIVE #025 - CassandraMyee

We've made it to number 25 in the WPC! This week was a little hectic and there was not a lot of time for blogging, or anything else bar writing essays and reports for my final week at uni (hooray!). This weekend though I've been taking a uni break before I get into exam study to catch up on blogging, taking lots of photos of some exciting products and writing some posts ready for the upcoming week. Despite the business, I was still posting daily, so here are the past week of posts.

NOTD // Essie Wicked - CassandraMyee

Yes, I do realise that in NZ we are currently going into Summer, but I could not resist using this super vampy dark polish that I recently bought from NZ Sale. I've been eyeing up this Essie shade for a while now and I'm so glad I've now got it in my nail stash.

JORDANA // Lipstick Collection + Swatches - cassandramyee

When it comes to lipsticks, I think there are some pretty amazing, incredibly cheap brands out there that do lipsticks very well. Jordana is just one of those brands, and I realised I had quite a stash of shades so I've lumped them together to give you the run down on my collection. Each of these lipsticks can be brought for around NZD $3 at stores like 2Cheap, or online from Beauty Joint for only USD $1.59 each! The colour range is HUGE, and it's a great way to play around and experiment with a variety of shades to find ones that suit you, without paying a huge price tag.

MUA [MAKE UP ACADEMY] // Colour Intense Eyeliner Pencils | Review + Swatches - CassandraMyee

I recently did a rather large haul on MUA (see the evidence here), which mostly consisted of the amazing Velvet Lip Lacquers but I couldn't resist throwing in a few extra items. I have black eyeliners for days, and only a few browns and nude tones, so I decided to grab some of the £1.00 Intense Colour Eyeliner Pencils to try out.

KMART // $4 Matte Lipstick in Berrylicious - cassandramyee

I don't think I could ever turn down a $4, and these own brand Kmart lipsticks are super cheap, but surprisingly not that bad! I've blogged about another shade in Naked, and also featured a couple of the nail polishes, check them out here.

ROSE GOLD NAILS

ROSE GOLD NAILS - CassandraMyee

As much as I love pastel coloured nails and chunky glitter polishes, there is something amazing about a good metallic, sheeny nail. These three picks from my stash are my favourite rose-gold hued polishes for when I want to get a bit fancy on my fingers. I think they make great colours for Spring and offer something just a bit different from silver or gold.

LINDEN LEAVES // Clay Cleansing Masque Review - CassandraMyee

I love a good face masks, especially the clay kind so when this Linden Leaves Clay Cleansing Masque* arrived in the mail, I knew I was going to love it. Linden Leaves is an amazing natural skincare brand based in NZ and I have talked about a few of their products before, with each one always impressing me with the quality and the results.
