Update :)

Helloo There.

^ Cute huh ^ :)

I just wanted to post a quick update as to where I have been/why I haven't been posting much lately.

As of the last few weeks, besides working 40+ hours per week, I have had alot going on between my boyrfriend and I.

Now to add to that, I am leaving for Melbourne with my sister this weekend AND meant to be moving house all at the same time.

This causes for a bit of stress, especially on the financial side of things considering I need to buy a bed/bedroom furniture, then try and get everything packed to move whilst packing to go to melbourne. Its a bit confusing lol.

So basically, I probably wont have the time to post anything much until I am back from melbourne next week and I feel as though I'm somewhat settled into my new place.

If anyone has tumblr, feel free to check mine out! http://unleash-the-beauty.tumblr.com/

I hope you're all well!

Sigma - Make Me CRAZY! Brush Set

Hello my amazing followers!

Yesterday, I finally received my Sigma Make Me Crazy Brush set after winning Bubblegarm's (go follow her!) contest with this look:

The contest winners were announced on the 27th Jan, 2011. If you're wondering why it took so long to get my brushes, its because I'm a complete moron and somehow left out some vital information when I sent Sigma my address.

I was devastated when I realised, contacted them immediately and told them my mistake. They replied telling me the brushes should be returned to them, and when they do, they would resend them to my correct address. The lovely staff over at Sigma are amazing, and did just that!

Introducing... amazing purple brushes!!!!

Cutest little note! :)

Just LOOOOK at how gorgeous these brushes are!

I'm so in love with them! :)

If you're interested in buying these brushes, or checking out the other colours they have, click here!

I got the Sigma complete kit with brush roll for christmas a couple of years ago, which is essentially these same brushes, but black. I quickly compared them last night after opening my package, and noticed there are some slight differences in the brushes.

Would any of you be interested in me comparing/reviewing the 2 sets?
Let me know!

Thanks for stopping by!

Mini Haul :)

Firstly, let me just begin by apologising for neglecting my blog. I've been pretty busy with work lately, for example- I'm working 12 hours tomorrow :/ but I have also had a lack of motivation.. to pretty much do anything besides what I need to do.

I'm hoping to be out of this soon!

Oh, and hellloooo to new followers :)

This **mini** haul is from a week or 2 ago, nothing too special, but I thought I may as well post about it anyway.

Maybelline Line Stiletto Liquid Eyeliner (I'll post more of this in a review coming next!)

SHE Pink Suede Lipgloss
Gorgeous pink and gold sparklies!

Revlon Silver Dollar Nail Polish

Thanks for looking!
Have you hauled lately?
If so, what?


Have a great day!

Introducing the Sigma Dry 'N Shape!!!

Tired of waiting for your brushes to dry after washing them? Wait no more! Introducing the revolutionary Sigma Beauty Dry’n Shape system! The Dry’n Shape was designed to completely dry and shape your most dense brushes within 4 to 6 hours, guaranteed.

The Dry’n Shape provides the necessary pressure to bristles to quickly and efficiently remove water from every fibre. The fabric used to shape the bristles was specially engineered to accelerate water evaporation, resulting in a faster drying time for your brushes.

The Dry’n Shape is an easy, quick, and effective way to quickly dry and shape your makeup brushes. Follow these three easy steps for best results:

Wash your brushes using a mild shampoo or brush cleanser.

Gently press the bristles to remove any excess water. Place the clean, damp brushes into the Dry’n Shape using the smallest band the brush will fit into. Make sure that all bristles are firmly compressed.

Wait 4 to 6 hours and your brushes will be completely dry and ready to use! In addition to being completely dry, the bristles will be reshaped to their original form. Your brushes will be perfect for your makeup application!

You now have a convenient option to wash and use your brushes as often as you’d like!

Best of all, the Sigma Dry 'N Shape is only $29!!!

Silver Holographic Gradient Nails!

Hello my lovelies!

Last night I attempted my first gradient nail mani ever!

And I'm actually quite please with how it turned out!

WOOO me!

I chose these colours as I figured if I screwed it up, it would be easier to get away with, rather then bright contrasting colours.

God I love me some holographic-y glittery goodness :D

These are literally the only 3 photos I managed to snap before my battery died on me :/

I love this whole gradient effect.. its like an illusion that makes my nails look longer! :)

I used:
  • Revlon 'Silver Dollar' as the first colour at the tip.
  • Nfu Oh #61 layered over Silver Dollar and carried down a little further.
  • Orly mini 'Shine on Crazy Diamond' (clear base with holographic glitter) on top with glitter focussed more on the tip.

Let me know what you think of this mani! Have you tried the gradient nail before?

Have a great day!
