Being invited to attend the 2016 Sephora Exclusive Brands Showcase was a dream come true for me. I think I got to Sephora every week and constantly check out their products online. I was so excited and honoured to be invited that I squealed with delight. I attended the morning session which started at 9 a.m. I also briefly met Hannah the director of OnedaydreamPr, the PR agency for Sephora Australia. If there was ever a woman with a kind face, this is she. I immediately felt
Ahhh, the gorgeous By Terry. The creator of the brand Parisian beauty guru Terry de Gunzburg is also the creator of YSL' famous Touche Éclat Pen. She created it before starting her own brand.
Now she has come out with quite a stunning palette: The Sun Designer Palette
What is it?
This is palette really packs a punch in a slim case (15cm by 6cm by1cm). It comes with a lovely dark plum velvet slip case.
There are two varieties: 1. Tan and Flash Cruise and 2. Light and T
The trend for cushion foundations has been going on for a long while. They first originated from Korea. The Korean ones tend to give you a luminous glowy look though they have come out with more matte ones. This is what a typical Asian Cushion Foundation looks like (this one is from IOPI, a Korean brand I really like). Notice that it is the cushion inside that contains the foundation. Also, they very typically come with a refill. Since the trend started several years ago, mor

Maskcare Cosmetics was founded by CARA BROOK Beauty Blogger/Makeup Artist in 2013. SO... being lured in by the pretty packaging, I had to try it. I also like her philosophy about how: MAKEUP SHOULD BE USED TO ENHANCE THE TRUE BEAUTY IN A WOMAN’S FACE, RATHER THAN COVERING IT UP. what are they? Each little tin (yes, I was a bit shocked by how small they were - each tin measures 5.5cm by 2.5cm by 0.5cm). That does has it's advantage

I was gob smacked when I first saw these limited edition highlighters from Burberry's S/S16 collection. The Highlighter Palettes in In White No. 1 and Nude Gold No. 2. They are pricey. In Australia, they retail for AU$94 each. In the USA, they retail for US$68 each. They are sold out on the Burberry website but you can still get them at Sephora in Australia or at the Burberry counters at your favourite department store. They won't be there long though. I had to hunt down the
This was a labour of love for Valentine's Day. I can't believe how long this took me to do. I think I even had a panic attack over it. It haunted my dreams for nights. I kept measuring those squares over and over and my furbabies (2 cats and 1 dog) ran over them, and I missed something and had to re-measure everything and then realised that it got so big that I had to buy a ladder to photograph it.
By the time I had it done, I had about 10 minutes of daylight left, it was a
Just a few re-grams from my fave brands. They are are all flatlays. I do tend to take a very long time to compose each one.
I do update this post every once in a while.
My Instagram used to be called "teawithmakeupmagic88" but I had a rather nasty experience with someone trying to hack into my account. Hence the multiple name changes. Thank goodness that Instagram has stepped up it's security features. You can see all of these regrams on my Instagram page under the sectio
