Short break

Hi guys!
I'm back after a short, unexpected break. I spent a few days in country NSW relaxing at the boyfriend's parents' house to get away from things. I just needed to get away from it all for a bit. I won't go into details, but I'm not having the best time right now, although I'm hoping things get sorted out soon.

My next post will be of IMATS Sydney, so keep an eye out for that. Missed you all!
Olgie.

Eyeshadow: Sugarpill Cold Chemistry look #3

Today I have another look from the Sugarpill Cold Chemistry palette. This isn't one of my usual looks, as it's dark underneath the eye and light on top. It's always fun to change things up so I really enjoyed creating this one. Once again I used all four colours.

Eyeshadow: another Sugarpill Cold Chemistry look

I know, another post so soon! As promised, here's another look using the Sugarpill Cold Chemistry palette, this time using all four of the colours. This look is quite dark but I love it. I'm looking forward to maybe doing a less intense look next, maybe using Diamond Eyes as the main colour. We'll see. I also used some mattes from the Too Faced Naked Eye palette to even out all the shimmer.

Eyeshadow: Sugarpill Cold Chemistry palette

It's finally here! I'm so excited to finally have my hands on the latest Sugarpill (www.sugarpillshop.com) palette. I've been drooling over this thing since I first saw swatches of it over a year ago. And I have to say, this baby is worth the wait.

Nails: recent manis (piCture pOlish & Dollish Polish)

So because I've been busy, I haven't had a chance to show off some lovely nail polishes that I've been wearing lately. I also went a little nuts buying new ones, so I haven't even had a chance to wear them all yet. So here are four recent manis: three piCture pOlish colours and a Dollish Polish holo.

Eyeshadow: golden olive & orange

Today I'm showing you guys one of the new Clinique Chubby Sticks for eyes. I got one colour (from Myer), but I think may get at least one more. They sell for $35 in the shops in Australia, although my sister just bought one on Strawberrynet for only $24. I've worn it a couple of times already and it's great. It's easy to apply and once it sets, I get no creasing. It also makes for a very quick eye makeup application. I've teamed it with a bit of Sugarpill goodness here to give it a little bit more shimmer.

Eyeshadow: grey & teal

Hey guys. Sorry about the time between posts. Life's been a little bit blah and crap needed doing, but I have returned! After my last trip, I was a little annoyed with myself for not picking up a few extra Urban Decay items while I was in Singapore. Why was I trying to be good? Pointless! Anyway, I did an order from Look Fantastic (www.lookfantastic.com) and picked up a couple of extras, including the eyeshadow I'm featuring in today's look. It's an all-Urban Decay affair.
