Welcome to the 3rd instalment of my makeup declutter series!

 

 

For part 3 of my makeup declutter series, I tackled my eyeshadow palettes! This was probably the smallest section to declutter, however that made it no easier. Eyeshadow palettes are one of my favourite things to collect, and parting with them was no easy task. Watch my video to see which palettes I’m getting rid of, and why!

Don’t forget to check out the first 2 videos in the series:

I can hardly believe that 2015 is over. As a child, I remember someone telling me that every year will seem to pass faster than the previous. I didn’t understand it at that time, but now I do. 2015 passed by faster than I ever could have imagined. It was full of ups and downs, but mostly it was the year that I really started to truly work on my blog, and make it more of a priority.

RetroMatteLiquidLipcolor_collection_landing_1600The long-awaited MAC liquid lipsticks launched January 7th across North American MAC stores. I have been eagerly waiting for this collection to launch since I first heard the rumours that MAC was coming out with their own spin on the very popular liquid lipstick trend.

Claudia and I zipped over to our local MAC store, as per our usual MAC launch tradition.

I absolutely love the vibe of this collection. It’s retro, glamorous, and fashionable. It features 15 permanent shades of their brand new, matte liquid lipsticks.
