E.L.F. COSMETICS // Get The Look Kit | Review + Swatches

Tuesday, 23 September 2014

e.l.f. and I have a very strong relationship; I use various e.l.f. products on a daily basis and because you can get them so cheap, I love trying out different things from the huge range. iHerb stocks a lot of the kits and packs, such as this 5 piece 'Get The Look Kit'. At a price of USD $5.00, and in the midst of doing a very large iHerb haul (see the aftermath here), I added this one to the cart to try out.

NEW ADDITIONS #007 // Art + Architecture Books - cassandramyee

Art and Architecture books take up the majority of my book shelf, which comes as no surprise as I have a Bachelor of Architectural Studies and am 6 weeks off completing my BA in Art History. My book collection has been growing and growing since I started uni six years ago (has it really been that long?), and beside makeup and nail polishes, I am constantly buying new books here and there. Book Depository is my favourite place to shop online for books as they are so cheap and they have free worldwide shipping, but I also love book sales and often Whitcoulls and Paper Plus have some amazing bargain books which is where I recently picked up these four new books.

Happy Sunday everyone! As usual here is the weekly round up of posts that featured this past week on CM. Monday's post, all about makeup tips if you are sick, was one of my favourite posts I have done on here in a long time, and I was so happy with how the photos came out; I hope you all enjoyed it as well!

It has been far too long since I did a Wishlist post, so today I am coming at you with some beauty items I am currently coveting. I have a sticky note on my computer that is getting insanely long and it is constantly getting added to on the daily (#beautybloggerproblems).

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 √† 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.
