When given the opportunity to ask the Napoleon Perdis a few questions about is life and career, one does not turn that down. Napoleon Perdis is a huge cosmetics brand with humble beginnings in Australia over 20 years ago, but now it is stocked in a number of countries and the man himself has become a household name. I've used a few products from NP in the past and am always impressed by the quality of the products, as well as the branding and packaging. It's a brand I need to try a lot more of in the future! So without further ado, here are my six questions I asked Napoleon; his responses are fantastic and a great insight into the brand and his background.

ESSIE | 2016/2017 Summer Nail Polish Collection - Review + Swatches

ESSIE | Summer Nail Polish Collection - Review + Swatches - CassandraMyee

Every season essie bring out a brand new set of 6 shades and I always get excited to see what they come out with. They already offer an amazing array of colours and finishes, and I am surprised they still find gaps and product unique and beautiful colours. The new Summer Collection* hits it out of the park once again with 6 shades to get your nails all set for the sun.

COLOURPOP COSMETICS | Haul - Moment of Weekness Set, Ultra Glossy Lips + More - Swatches

COLOURPOP COSMETICS | Haul - Moment of Weekness Set, Ultra Glossy Lips + More - Swatches - CassandraMyee

The past couple of months has been Colourpop craziness. I have made more orders in the space of 2 months than I did in like 2 years. This year I have got to slow down on the ordering but with endless deal after deal, and new products being released, I have become royally sucked in by their marketing campaigns. It isn't all bad though because I have been loving all the new goodies I have bought recently and I had to share with you this latest haul which arrived the day before Christmas Eve.

TOO FACED | Chocolate Bon Bons Eyeshadow Collection - Review + Swatches

TOO FACED | Chocolate Bon Bons Eyeshadow Collection - Review + Swatches - CassandraMyee

It seems lately that I have been reviewing eyeshadow palettes left, right and centre, and well it is a little true. I am an eyeshadow palette junkie and they are one of my many vices when it comes to beauty. At the end of last year, I worked with Shipito to try their service and I did some ordering from the US Sephora site and I knew I had to get this Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Eyeshadow Collection. It is my first foray into the Too Faced Palettes and it is certainly not going to be my last one... here's what I make of it.

ESSENCE | New Spring/Summer Makeup Launches for 2016/2017

ESSENCE | Spring/Summer Makeup for 2016/2017 - Review + Swatches - CassandraMyee

Essence Cosmetics have got to be one of the most affordable brands available at the moment that produce high-quality beauty products. I have been a fan of Essence since I first tried one of their blushes and mascaras and always love seeing what new things they bring out. Each season they release new, on-trend products and everything in their range is less than NZD $10 each! Here are some of their latest releases for Spring/Summer.

CAROUSEL COSMETICS | Everyday Brush Set - Review

CAROUSEL COSMETICS | New Brush Set - CassandraMyee

Having good quality makeup brushes is quintessential for good makeup application. Everything is just going to go onto the face looking better when you have the right tools. Carousel Cosmetics is an NZ owned brand stocked on Beauty Bliss and they have recently expanded their range with this very handy Everyday Brush Set*. Inside the case has a selection of brushes you are likely to use on a regular basis that will easily do your whole face of makeup with 8 brushes.

URBAN DECAY | Ultimate Naked Basics Palette - Review + Swatches

URBAN DECAY | Ultimate Naked Basics Palette - Review + Swatches - CassandraMyee

If I had to pick one brand that I could only use their eyeshadows from it would be hands down Urban Decay. I have been a fan since I got the Naked 2 Palette a good 2 year ago, but it was the Naked Basics (both 1 and 2) that confirmed my love for the brand and their shadows. I have thrashed my Basics Palettes (as you will see below) and reach for them daily. As soon as I saw they were bringing out this gorgeous monster of a matte palette, I knew I was going to need it - and here it is!

THE BODY SHOP | Advent Calendar 2016 - Was It Worth It?

THE BODY SHOP | Advent Calendar 2016 - Was It Worth It? - CassandraMyee

In my final instalment of Was It Worth It? Beauty Advent Calendar addition, here is the massive, beautiful (and expensive) The Body Shop calendar. Every year they bring one out and it seems to get better and better according to a lot of photos I've seen. I was so lucky that my Dad surprised my sister and I and bought these back from the USA with him where they were a whole lot cheaper (I'll go into that later, though). 

TANYA BURR COSMETICS | 12 Days of Christmas Beauty Advent Calendar 2016 - Was It Worth It?

TANYA BURR COSMETICS | 12 Days of Christmas Beauty Advent Calendar 2016 - Was It Worth It? - CassandraMyee

If you missed yesterday's post (see it here), for the rest of the week I am talking beauty advent calendars; seeing if they were worth the money and going through what was inside each one I opened through the lead up to Christmas. Today's calendar is the Tanya Burr Cosmetics 12 Days of Beauty Advent Calendar from YouTube mega star Tanya Burr.


ASOS BEAUTY ADVENT CALENDAR | Was It Worth It? - CassandraMyee

For the next three days (yep, three days in a row) I am going to be chatting Advent Calendars, and not just your average chocolate ones, the beauty kind! I realise that it is now January and Christmas is now sadly another 12 months away, but I was lucky enough to have three different beauty advent calendars from ASOS, The Body Shop and Tanya Burr Cosmetics, so I thought why not share the contents and if it was worth the price tag. I am hoping it might be helpful for when Christmas time rolls around again and they offer similar ones (The Body Shop always brings one out!) So up first is the ASOS Beauty Calendar with a whole variety of different brands inside.

EMPTIES | December '16

EMPTIES | December '16 - CassandraMyee

I was hoping to have this post up earlier, but holidays happened and everyone needs a break! So although we are now 9 days into January (can it just slow down a little!?), here are my empties and reviews from the month of December.

MOST LOVED | December '16

MOST LOVED | December '16 - CassandraMyee

I know we are 6 days into January (and 2017 for that matter), but I still haven't shared my Most Loved for December, so here they are! I would have liked to of had this up in December along with my Empties, but I took a wee break over the Christmas period and only getting back into my normal schedule now (definitely not an easy one!)

JEFFREE STAR | Velour Liquid Lipstick Collection + Swatches

JEFFREE STAR | Velour Liquid Lipstick Collection + Swatches - CassandraMyee

Welcome to 2017 everyone - we made it! I hope you all had an amazing Christmas break, I certainly did and it was great to have some time away from the blog and social media, it was exactly what I needed! For my very first post for 2017, I thought I'd ease back in and talk about something I absolutely love  - liquid lipsticks. I have loads, and from various brands so I know a good liquid lip when I try it. One of the brands I absolutely love for this sort of lip product is Jeffree Star Cosmetics.
