The Perfect Pink Lip with Dupes from Kylie Cosmetics, Mac, Limecrime, Colourpop & NYX
Dupes L:R - Mac Cosmetics Creme Cup, NYX Liquid Suede in Tea & Cookies, Limecrime Velvetine in Prairie, Kylie Cosmetics Lipkit in Smile and Colourpop Ultra Matte in Clueless

I'm a huge fan of pink lipsticks so it's no surprise that a lot of my lipsticks are dupes for each other.  It's rare that you'll find me wearing anything other than pink on my lips and I love anything that gives me that 'My Lips But Better' shade.  Recently I reviewed the Kylie Cosmetics Lip Kit in Smile and as it's currently not stocked on Kylie Cosmetics I was wondering what I would do when it ran out.  Turns out the perfect dupe arrived in the mail a couple of weeks ago as a free gift with purchase from Limecrime.

MorpheMe Makeup Brush Subscription Club - May 2017 Voyage to Glam

I recently signed up to the MorpheMe Makeup Brush Club and received my first parcel of brushes last month.  You can check out what I got last month by clicking here but it was definitely love at first sight!

I received this month's parcel of brushes a couple of weeks ago but I've been a bit lazy with my blogging lately so these are a bit late going up.  For those of you who don't know the MorpheMe Brush Club is just as it sounds.  You pay a set fee every month ($20USD) and receive $30USD worth of Morphe brushes.  Shipping is free if you live in the US but costs extra for me here in Australia.  They promise to give you anywhere between 3 and 7 brushes per month and never the same brush twice.  They also have the option of a six month or annual subscription which makes it even cheaper.

How to Keep Red Hair From Fading

Making the decision to go from a brunette to a red-head was an easy one for me.  I was looking for a change but I didn't have the time or money to go blonde and I have naturally pale skin and green eyes so I knew being a red-head would suit me.

Platinum Beauty Makeup Brush & Sponge Collection

As a trained makeup artist (no longer practicing) I can't stress enough how important good quality makeup brushes are.  They don't have to necessarily be expensive but for makeup artists, brushes are tools of the trade and they are worth investing in.  I'm pretty fussy about the makeup brushes I use.  There are so many crap brushes out there (I have a drawer full of them) and honestly, it's just not worth using them.

MorpheMe Makeup Brush Club April 2017 Deluxe Tapered Powder (R10), Deluxe Pointed Blender (R40) Pro Flat Contour (R8)

I'm quite a big fan of Morphe brushes so when I found out recently that they had a brush subscription service I knew I was definitely going to sign up.  My first brushes arrived midway through April and I was super happy with what I received.  I also received a bonus brush for using someone's affiliate code (Keep reading - I'll have one for you at the end of this post).

Mecca Beauty Loop Level 2 April 2017

It's Beauty Loop time again at Mecca so I popped into my local store on the weekend and picked up my box.  For those of you who don't know the Beauty Loop is a rewards program that is run by Mecca.  Depending on how much money you spend each year at Mecca you are placed on a level and receive rewards accordingly.  I am Level 2 and this is what was in my Mecca Beauty Loop box this quarter.

My Favourite Beauty Products for April 2017

Blogging took a little bit of a backseat in April as I went away to visit family in Adelaide for a couple of weeks and was subjected to a house with no wi-fi.  Let's just say I used up all my data in the first 3 days haha. For anyone wondering, I would rather get teeth pulled with no pain relief than go on a plane with my toddler again but that's a story for another day.
