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.

WISHLIST // New Look Fast Food Clutches - CassandraMyee

This morning after watching Lily Melrose's latest New Look haul, I found myself in a deep, dark (but great) hole browsing the New Look website, adding a lot of stuff into my cart and falling in love with many things, particularly the Burger Clutch that Lily showed. I have a thing for clutches (here, here and here among others), especially the novelty kind with words, or funny messages on them, so these fast food inspired clutch that New Look currently have are absolutely right up my street and I just had to share them!

LORAC // Mega Pro Palette [aka. The Palette To End All Palettes] - CassandraMyee

This post is less of a review and more of a 'you need to buy this if you get the chance' type of thing, because O.M.G. the LORAC Mega Pro Palette is out of this world. I mean, just look at this beautiful thing!

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!

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.
