NOTD // Essie Absolutely Shore - CassandraMyee

My obsession with Essie polishes grows on the daily and they are fast becoming one of my favourite brand. The selection of shades I own are ones I can't help but reach for again and again.Absolutely Shore is a new one in my collection that I bought off NZ Sale* for only $5 [along with a few others too.... evidence here].

NYX // Jumbo Eye Pencil Collection + Swatches - cassandramyee
I've talked about these before on my blog, but they've been quite brief in haul posts so I thought I should do a more in-depth review of the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil, as well as share some swatches of the five that I've got in my collection.

MAKEUP REVOLUTION // Haul + First Impressions - CassandraMyee

Makeup Revolution has been on my radar ever since it began earlier in the year. I first heard of them after they started following me on Twitter (shameless plug), and after that they were cropping up on so many UK blogs. It's UK based brand and is much like MUA [Make Up Academy] offering very affordable makeup products. Makeup Revolution has many 'dupes' or copies of higher end brands, they offer the Iconic 1, 2 + 3 palettes, that have almost identical colours to the Urban Decay ones, and there is also a very similar I Heart Chocolate palette à la Too Faced - and that's just the beginning with lots products that make you think "I'm sure I've seen that before...". Prices start at £1, and a couple of weeks a go they had free international shipping with orders over £20, so I finally made the plunge and ordered a few products to try out.

FEELING SICK? // My Makeup Tips - CassandraMyee

Last week I was hit with an extremely nasty bout of the flu, which couldn't have come at a better time - uni started back after the mid-semester break, which meant a test and an essay due, all at once. I've been through about four boxes of tissues (thank god for aloe vera ones) and have a nasty smoker's cough going on right now, but in my bed ridden state last week I was inspired to write this particular post - makeup tips for when you feel like s**t and actually have to leave your house and act slash look like a normal person.

THE WEEKLY POST COLLECTIVE #020 - CassandraMyee
The WPC has hit the big 2-0!! This week was a bit of a crappy one; a horrible flu kicked in on Sunday, and on Monday I couldn't even get out of bed or manage much at all, so there was no blog post. But by Tuesday I was starting to get a bit more energy and normal posting commenced! Here is the post round up from the past week on CM...

NOTD // Two Toned Nails | Ciaté Ferris Wheel + MUA Ameretto Crush - CassandraMyee

This manicure was utterly inspired by Lily Pebbles's Split Pastel Nails she featured a couple of months ago on her blog. It seemed like a simple way to incorporate two shades, and it makes it look like you put in a lot of effort into your manicure (when really you didn't!)

KLEANCOLOR // Nail Polish Haul + Swatches [from Postie] - cassandramyee

My collection of Kleancolor polishes seems to growing at a bit of a rapid rate now that I have been finding more shades are available at Postie! It seems whenever I go in there I come out with at least one, and on this particular occasion I came out with three, I mean they were on sale and were only $3 each!

MAYBELLINE // The Mega Plush Volum'Express Mascara in Very Black | Review - CassandraMyee

When it comes to makeup items, mascara is one of my all time favourites. I think you can put on all the foundation, blush, bronzer [etc..] on in the world but never be complete with a good coating of mascara (or three). I love testing out new ones, but once you open a tube you gotta use it quick or else you can be left with a dried out mess in no time. I've had this particular one from Maybelline stashed away for a while and have been using it over the past couple of months, so here is my final verdict.
