INSTAGRAM ROUND UP // August '14 - CassandraMyee

It's two days out from the end of August so it is time to show you all of my Instagram photos from the month. As always I was snap happy sharing bits and pieces of what I got up to in August.

MOST LOVED // August '14 - CassandraMyee

There is only one thing to be said right now, where was August? And how is it almost September? Yep, it's crazy; the end of the year is getting closer and closer as I type (which is very daunting!) Anyway, despite time speeding by, August brought along with it some pretty fine products that have become fast favourites, as well a couple of rediscoveries that I've been loving.

EMPTIES // August '14 - CassandraMyee

So it is nearly September (bonkers, I know) and it is that time of the month when I talk rubbish. August seemed to be the time where a lot of products came to end; there are the usuals (i.e. Body Shop Tea Tree range), but also a couple of different brands that I finally got around to finishing over the past four weeks.

VIOLET BOX NZ // July '14 | End of Month Review - CassandraMyee

As a month has rolled on by, it's time give the July Violet Box a good ol' grilling and review the products inside. Sadly, this is going to be my last VB for a while as I cancelled my subscription purely as I want to try out a couple of different boxes (I'm eyeing up Meme Box next). But that doesn't mean that I didn't enjoy the service; I think it is one of the better ones available to NZ and I've loved the majority of the products that I have got in the boxes over the past four months or so. For more in-depth photos and swatches from the July box, go over and read my Unboxing + Initial Thoughts for July here.

WET N WILD // Mega Last Matte Lipsticks | Review + Swatches - CassandraMyee
In my latest Beauty Joint Haul I finally got around to ordering a few of the Wet N Wild  Mega Last Lipsticks that I have had on my 'to buy' list for a little while now after hearing some amazing things about them. There are 26 shades available, and the best part about them - they are only USD $2.75 each, just over $3 NZD!

NYC // Big Bold Bronzing Powder in 602 MetropoliTan - CassandraMyee

A big old bronzer is a must in anyone's makeup stash. There is something very satisfying about swirling your brush in a large pan of bronzing goodness that can then easily be swept onto the face to give you that natural looking tan, like you've been sunning yourself on the beach (when in reality it's winter and you have been sitting on your laptop all day!) This Big Bold Bronzing Powder from NYC gets the faux-tan thing going on and it won't break the bank!

It was like only yesterday I wrote the #016 edition of the WPC, and now we are at the end of this week already! The past week on CM was packed with posts again and I covered lips, nails, eyes, cheeks and even snuck a haul in there too.

E.L.F. STUDIO // Blush Collection + Swatches [and why you should buy them all]

E.L.F. STUDIO // Blush Collection + Swatches - cassandramyee

There are a few things that take up quite a lot of space in my makeup stash, and one particular thing is blushes. I just love the things, I feel they give back some much needed colour to the face after using foundation, concealer etc, and you can experiment with a lot of different shades, whether they are red, pink, peach, coral; there are just too many options out there. I own a lot of single blushes across a variety of brands but there are only a couple where I own more than 2 or 3 - these Studio Blushes from e.l.f. (Eyes Lips Face) sit in this category and I have six out of the ten available.
