Rimmel The Only 1 Matte Lipstick: Swatches and Review

Here’s the sequel to Rimmel’s The Only 1 lipsticks which I loved: Rimmel The Only 1 Matte. Much like the original, they mix intense colour, easy application, and excellent staying power, and even feel moisturising… almost (let’s face it, matte lipsticks never truly feel moisturising!). There are 9 shades available, and all 9 shades are coming to Australia. Here they are:

Guest Post: Matte Black Nail Art by Bec (Nail Gun XS)

I’ve recently started working at a temp job that’s taking up a lot of my sunlight hours, so blogging has become a bit more difficult and stressful (especially with the heap of inspiration I’ve had lately!). To give myself a bit of a breather, I asked some of my favourite bloggers to guest post for me, and to my surprise, …

Rimmel Kate Moss Matte Lipstick review & swatches

I’ve only recently started exploring lipstick – I’ve been using stains forever, and since Revlon’s Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains came out I’ve been happily trying out some long-wear colour. The main thing keeping me from wearing more lipstick is reapplication, and it’s often a mess before I remember! So predictably, my favourite finish is long-lasting matte. I was really …

Artsy Wednesday: Matte and Glossy

Today’s Artsy Wednesday theme is Matte and Glossy Combined. This is what I did: The base is Ciate Paparazzi, another English polish that ilexica sent me. On its own it’s a deliciously vampy blood red translucent creme that looks like a blood bag, but when I matted it with Rimmel Lycra Pro Mattifying Topcoat, it looked like chocolate… yum! I …

NOTD: Models Own Indian Ocean, plus stamping and matte

I’ve been on a Low Buy July – I was going to do a No Buy July, but failed spectacularly when I bumped into Revlon Grape Fizz on sale at Myer on July 1st. Glass flecked grape scented nails? Sign me up please! Other than that, I’ve been doing quite well. So far I’ve only bought 6 bottles of polish… …

Artsy Wednesday: Newsprint Nails

This is a new technique I’ve never tried before, and it turned out a lot easier than I expected! All you need to do is let your background colour dry thoroughly, then dip your nails in alcohol (vodka, rubbing alcohol, methylated spirits etc.) so there’s a thin alcohol layer on top. Then you quickly press a rectangle of newspaper onto …
