I love getting boxes like this one - a full face of makeup!

Lets start with the face.  Because it's actually not too bad looking!

Eyeshadow, mascara, blush and lipstick all came from this bag.  The base was a Za powder.

The brush on the mascara was a little hard for me to work with personally, so it went on the lash line, and I tried to hide it with a smudge of the darker purple from the eyeshadow duo.  Didn't really work.

I like the blue mascara though!

(Gosh my nose looks huge in these photos!)

Onto the products!

GOSH Matt Duo Eyeshadow - 008 Dusty Purple
Full Size: $14.99

It's a pretty duo.  It's a little chalky but the colour payoff is ok.  I haven't tried it wet, but it might improve the colour intensity.

MPrincess Mineral Blush - Peach Fuzz
Full Size: $15.45 (1.2g)

Orange blush?  Shimmery orange blush?!

It's not too bad!

The shimmer acts as a nice highlight, and the orange actually blends out quite nicely to a pinkish finish.    On my hand I have it blended out (on the left) and applied roughly with my finger (on the right).

If you threw it over a base, it would make a great eyeshadow.

Teeez Cosmetics Desert Metals Mascara - Sapphire Nights
Full Size: $32.50

I've never used a coloured mascara before, so this intrigued me.  It's dark enough that I can totally get away with wearing it on a normal day-to-day basis.  It would look amazing with they grey-blue eyeliner from the previous box.

Jelly Pong Pong Lip Blush - Marshmellow Pink
Full Size: $15

A cool leaning blue-based pink.  Not really my colour - I think it looks a little too barbie on me.
It claims to be a stain, but it doesn't stain nearly as much as the other JPP lip blush that I got a while back.

I think if I was to sheer it out a little, or wear something darker mixed with it, I could pull it off a little better.

Essenzza Face Mask
Full Size: $4.99

This brand is amazing.  I love their wipes, I love their masks, and this one has a mask pattern printed on it, so you don't look quite as weird sitting there with a sheet of paper on your face.  

I tend to collect these up and save them for pamper nights with the girls, or the day after a big night out.

Total cost for the box: $19.95 Australian money.
Total value of this box: $82.93.

Considering I'll use every product, this is a great box.

Handbag from StyleWe - Product Review

The lovely Lemon from StyleWe sent me a handbag to review!

I selected the basic style I wanted, and left it to be a mystery.  


It's a pale purple cross body bag with gold toned clasps and buckles.  

Loving the stitch texture on the top of the bag.

It's big enough for two cans of soft drink.

And fits my cellphone, work shirt and small essentials.

It also fits my cellphone, battery bank and a few other bits and bobs.

Whats in my bag?  Phone (Samsung Note 1), Battery Pack (Apacer 11000mah), hairbrush, The Body Shop Mango hand cream, flash drive, Great Barrier Island Bee Co. Manuka Honey lip balm, Blamtastic Balm, hairties, headphones and keys.

Lots of space for such a tiny bag.  I can fit quite a bit into it!

It was pretty awesome to get this bag in the mail, and I love being able to test and review these kinda things.  

It makes a perfect going out bag - everyone has black bags and you can get them lost in the dark, at least with the bright colour you can see it!  

Thanks again, StyleWe, for giving me the chance to review one of your bags!
