REVIEW & SWATCHES: Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick

ITEM: Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick
RRP: $20 (USD)


So I bought these beautiful looking Anastasia Liquid Lipsticks because the colours looked absolutely divine and because there was so much hype surrounding it. I was a little reluctant at first because shipping to Australia was $17.95 (U.S.) and the exchange rate was so ridiculous that it converted to an absurdly high amount. But… the more people that posted about them on Youtube, Instagram and Blogs made it impossible for me to resist. Eventually, I took the plunge and decided the shipping was only worth it if I bought a number of them so I bought 8 of them.

REVIEW & SWATCHES: Tartelette Palette

ITEM: Tarte Tartelette Palette (Aus: Buy at Sydney Sephora. U.S. link HERE)
RRP: $68AUD (Sydney Price) $44USD (U.S. Price)

So there is obviously a lot of hype circulating around this product so... you know I had to go out and get my hands on it. As soon as I saw it in Sephora (Sydney), I grabbed it and was at the register. I have used it a couple of times and feel I can sufficiently review the product now!

So...These are a few of my favourite things! *whistles* (I had to. Sound of Music is one of my favourite movies ever!)
