GOODIE BOX // August '14 | End of Month Review - CassandraMyee

Time has really got away from this month and I realised that I hadn't done my End of Month Review for the August Goodie Box! Because I cancelled it after this one I forgot that it has been well over a month since I last received, so here are my thoughts on each product. Overall I thought it was a great box and I've ended up really liking most of the products that were inside, if you want to see more details and images of the contents, check out my Unboxing + Initial Thoughts here. Goodie Box is a NZ monthly subscription service, where you pay $33.50 a month to receive around five-six products, including full sized and samples. The total of this box came to around $70.00.

EMPTIES // October '14 - CassandraMyee
It's that time of the month again where I talk all things rubbish, well not actual rubbish, but you know the drill! These are the products I finished up in October, and I'm here to give you my thoughts on each one.

CHEAP EBAY FINDS // White + Gold 5 Piece Kabuki Brushes - CassandraMyee

eBay has some absolute gems, and in another installment of Cheap eBay Finds, I've got some very affordable and great makeup brushes to share. Over a year ago I talked about the Jessep eyeshadow brush set (see it here) and this set are the larger face brush counterparts. I love the eye shadows ones and use them daily and they still look good as new, so I knew this face set was going to be just as good.

E.L.F. COSMETICS // Matte Lip Color Collection | Review + Swatches - CassandraMyee

Initially I only bought one of these, which I then proceeded to really love, so obviously that meant I had to buy the rest of the colours (normal, right?) The lip product in question comes from the extremely affordable brand, e.l.f [eyes, lips, face]. This is a brand I absolutely love and I've raved about many of their products on CM (just do a quick search to see all of the results, or to see my Top 5, click here), so it's no surprise I'm a big fan of these particular Matte Lip Colors.

Seriously, these weeks need to just slow down a touch, I can't believe it is almost the end of the month! This week was pretty cruisey, filled with a lot of procrastination and not a lot of study (whoops), but the blog was a busy one, so here is the week of posts.

MAYBELLINE // Expert Wear Eye Shadow Palette - The Nudes | Review + Swatches - CassandraMyee

When I first heard that Maybelline were throwing their hat into the neutral palette ring, I was damn excited. A good set of neutral shadows at drugstore prices? Yes please! A few months back I finally managed to nab The Nudes palette on, as every time I checked it was constantly out of stock, and it arrived in this haul here.

MAKEUP REVOLUTION // Powder + Cream Blushes | Review + Swatches - CassandraMyee

I finally took the plunge and did a rather large order (see the haul post here) from the UK based brand Makeup Revolution that has had huge hype around it, especially in the blogging world as the products are crazy cheap (and I mean, super duper cheap). I've split the haul I did into various posts to give a more in-depth review of some of the products I got. Initial impressions, all pretty amazing to be honest and I am very keen to do another order soon! This post I'm talking the blush range, with one powder and one cream blusher.

COLLECTIVE HAUL // Auckland Trip + iHerb - CassandraMyee

A couple of weekends ago I took a trip up to Auckland to go and see one of my favourite artists of all time, Justin Timberlake. Words really cannot express how incredible the concert was and seeing him live is something I'll never forget - that man just has it all going on (Jessica Biel is one lucky lady). I also got up to a bit of shopping for various homeware bits, some reading material and of course, some beauty buys. I also came home to an iHerb package which I thought I would include the couple of items I got at the end.
