Eyeshadow: three new looks & a (temporary) farewell

So first things first. As you all know I've been having a terrible time at work lately. While I've been busy the last couple of weeks, things have slowly improved so that it's not so hectic. Phew! I'm still trekking into the city every day for work, but there'll be opportunities for me to work from home every now and then, which I'm looking forward to.

I've been away for a couple of weeks so to make up for it, I have three looks to share with you all today. However, I'll then have to say a short farewell as my trip to Europe is in a little over 24 hours! I'm so excited. It's not a massive trip, since it's only three weeks, but it's my first to Europe since I was little (so it doesn't count). I'm spending some time in Helsinki, London, Paris, Stockholm and Prague. Hopefully I'll return with a ton of European cosmetics and inundate you all with pics and looks once I return.

Eyeshadow: pinkish purple/blue duochrome

Holy crap! This is post number 300! Who would have thought  I could ramble on for so long? I'm still surprised every day that so many of you enjoy reading my rambling in the first place. Thanks for sticking with me, guys! I appreciate it so much. So for this momentus occasion, I've got an awesome duochrome eyeshadow to show off. This whole look was created using Femme Fatale Cosmetics (http://femmefatalecosmetics.com.au) eyeshadows and the Wet n Wild Petal Pusher palette.

I recently got a few of the latest FFC eyeshadows (bad timing, since a few more new ones came out like two days after I placed my order!). I also got the complete sample set of the Gemtone Collection, a collection of white eyeshadows with different coloured duochrome sheen. I'll have to do another order soon because I desperately need a full-size version of Dispersion!

Nails: Illamasqua Stance & Butter London The Black Knight

Hey everyone, look at this! A post! It's been a long time coming, but I thought I'd start off with an easy one. I haven't been doing much with my nails lately, but this time I decided to get off my butt and change all that.
