Colourpop & Fourthray Beauty | Haul

Colourpop & Fourthray Beauty | Haul


Over the last few months I have been purchasing a few new colourpop & fourthly beauty products some of them are new products that I haven't used before and some are some old favourites of mine from Colourpop & Fourthray beauty


The pretty fresh foundation & super shock highlighters

I purchased the foundations in two different shades Fair 10n & Fair 15w
the fair 15n is way to yellow with its undertones the fair 10n is the perfect shade for me at the moment maybe once it heats up in Sydney I can use the other shade i love that this foundation doesn't have the strong smell of coconuts like the tinted moisturiser does these are lightweight buildable foundations that are so soft on the skin 
I had to try this creamy concealer hands down this has to be one of my new favourite concealers to use it doesn't crease plus it drys to a satin finish the shade I got was Fair20 N
Manifest that & The real thing 

Colourpop supershock range is always a favourite for my makeup collection what I love about this product is how soft and pigmented they are 

Going coconut's palette & Creme shadows

This is a gorgeous neutral palette that is full of matte shadows and some metallic shadows what im loving about this palette is that there isn't any full glitter shadows in this palette as my eyes are super sensitive 

This was one of the main reasons why i made a colourpop order these Creme Shadows are so buttery and so pigmented they remind me of the Mac paint pots 
Laurel & Bronco 
Laurel is a gorgeous beige shadow & bronco is a soft yellow it reminds me of Soft ochre from Mac 
they blend effortlessly and they are a hard drying cream shadow im hoping that colourpop will stock more colours in these formulas but their og super shock shadows will be forever a favourite of mine 

Lux lipglosses 

Figgy with it ,  Dream Queen & Come Thru 


These colourpop lux lipglosses are so pigmented they aren't a sticky formula either which makes these perfect for any season I found that they were hydrating on my lips 

Face Milks & Serums 

FourthRay beauty skincare is my absolute favourite for my skincare items

Their face milks are so beautiful for my oily skin I mix some face milks with my moisturiser at night to add some extra nourishment the remedy serum is a Niacinamide serum this has helped massively with any breakouts I've been having

Terracotta Pot Decor | DIY Pots with Fabric Pieces


I have been loving these $1 Terracotta pots from Bunnings they are the perfect size for many of my houseplants that I have there is also a drainage hole which is a plus for the plants as they need to drain from a good soak
       I bought some gorgeous pieces of lace & crotchet trimmings from Lincraft to add some fun texture 
These pots have to be one of my favourites for planting house plants they add a gorgeous colour with the terracotta 


I just used a super glue from Lincraft thats specially for Fabrics 
Have you tried any fun decorating ideas for pots

Trying out ELF Cosmetics | Bite Size Palettes Flawless Foundation & More

Trying out ELF Cosmetics | Bite Size Palettes Flawless Foundation & More


I haven't made an Elf Cosmetics purchase in years and honestly i am so glad that I did they have changed their makeup products for the better I love the unlimited colour selection for foundations & concealers the quality of these products are up with heaps of other makeup brands so here are my thoughts on each Elf cosmetics product


Elf Flawless Foundation " Swan "
I searched endlessly on Pinterest & YouTube for swatches of the foundation this was one of the lightest shades and I must say the colour was perfect I was honestly expecting it to be so orange and not a match with my skin it blended perfectly and it has a soft smooth finish the primer I used under this foundation was my favourite Fenty Beauty primer
Swatches of the Rose eye putty primer , 16hour Camo Concealer in Fair rose & Swan flawless foundation " 
I heard so many good reviews of this concealer I cannot believe that I haven't heard of this sooner 
its soft smooth and it doesn't crease under my eyes I love the 
Bite sized eyeshadow palettes 
Berry Bad 

These are both of the shadows swatched together " Berry Bad is the first 4 shadows then Pumpkin Spice is the last 4 shadows I love how creamy the shimmer shadows are and how pigmented they are aswell 
I have actually just purchased a few more of these Bite Sized palettes so another blogpost will be happening so keep an eye out
Whats some of your favourite ELF products ?
im keen to try more out from them

Spring Lunch Day | Camden Valley Inn



I haven't been to Camden Valley Inn in about 5 years since then they have gone through a massive refurbishment its just full of the beautiful country side of Camden the white vintage exteriors on the Inn itself is stunning with all of the pops of Greenery around its so realxing to just chill out and enjoy a glass of wine or even a coffee the food is one of the best places for a good meal in the Camden area

There was so much gorgeous hints of all types of flowers everywhere a plant lovers dream to just look at all of the different blooms of colour 


Getting to know fellow church ladies has been so awesome I've made so many lovely friends from our Local church 


I love how open the seating plan is for Camden Valley Inn its similar to the Grounds of Alexandria with the brick walls and vintage country feel

Natasha Denona Bronze Palette & Colourpop California Love Palette | Haul & Dupes

Natasha Denona Bronze Palette & Colourpop California Love Palette | Haul & Dupes


So a few weeks back i finally caved and purchased the stunning Natasha Denona Bronze palette as I wanted to have some makeup fun with trying one of her palettes as I have never purchased a Natasha Denona palette before and boy im so glad I did her palettes are stunning in this blogpost i will be going into more depth with the shadows of this palette plus I have added this gorgeous Colourpop dupe if your looking to save but have a fun look that is similar with these palettes 

They are both absolutely stunning palettes to have in your makeup collection the Natasha Denona one  has more of a bronze & peachy duo chrome colour story to it with bronze shadows the Colourpop one has more of a lighter colour story going on with bronze tones the only difference i can feel with these shadows is some of the Natasha Denona ones that are really buttery in texture were getting a bit patchy when i was swatching them im not sure why this was happening as they didn't go patchy on my eyelids when i was having a play around with this palette maybe it was because the skin on my arm is different to my eyelid skin i still love both of these palettes the same though
The Natasha Denona Bronze palette has such a soft & buttery feel to the shadows they blend really well I love how much the glitter shines in the duo chrome shadows the only thing it is missing is one light matte shadow as I just always find having a lighter shadow tone helps lighten my crease with eye looks 
Colourpop California Love Palette 
This palette has a bronze burnt orange colour story to it the shadows are soft & buttery like all colourpop shadows do the the only diffrence between this palette & the Natasha Denona Bronze Palette is that there is a few more lighter matte shades to work with in the crease and there is a pressed glitter in the Colourpop palette 

This was a eye look I created using the Natasha Denona Bronze palette 
Have you tried this palette or the Colourpop one I would love to know your thoughts
