My new haul: Inglot Cream Blush

I discovered a new make up brand from my new idol professional make up artist from youtube Lisa Eldrige who made a magnificent tutorial on navy blue smoky eyes which I want to wear (if I can make it) in a wedding that I was invited next month.  That is not relevant, the thing is that I need a warm tone for my cheeks to complement the blue shadows and she use a beautiful pen lipstick in other tutorial from Inglot (and the brand exists in Melbourne, yeah!). So I went to Inglot, and I discovered its cream blushes. I wanted to try this type of blush because sometimes with my powder blush (I have already said that my fav blushes are from Benefit) I can slightly noticed my facial hair and I read that this doesn´t happen with the cream ones. I want to try the Nyx´s but I couldn´t find them (just online) so I decided to try with Inglot.
I chose a warm shade (n°89) and I´m so happy so far. It is just perfect, easy to blend, nice color and looks on my face as my natural color of my cheeks.
It costs $23 AUD, contains 5.5gr (the benefit one contains 8 and it costs $28 american dollars) and it is very creamy and pigmented.
Given that it is really difficult to find a cream blush in drugstores in Melbourne, if you want to try this option, I highly recommend you to try the cream blushes from Inglot (they have more than 16 shades.)
here it´s some pictures...

It was about 3 months or more of wait. I heard so much about these lipsticks and too many good reviews about them that I was looking forward that they arrive in Australia. Thanks to another blogger (a famous one here, not like me) Ling I learned that Priceline would bring them to Melbourne. That was two weeks ago, I run to the store to get one. Then, it was my birthday so as a present I bought another one (it was my birthday present to myself) and yesterday I discovered that Priceline was having a promotion buy 1 get 1 free, so guess what? I run to get more. So now, you can be thinking that I really really love the product. Why am I so inlove with Revlon lip butter?

1) its texture is simply incredible, the perfect combination of  a lipbalm and a lipstick.
2) there are colors for every taste.
3) the package is nice and safety
4) it has a subtle smell (some can´t even smell anything)
5) 20 shades to choose

Now, you know, not everything that glitters is gold, and although many people say that it is very good quality for a very good price, I think we can´t say the same here in Australia. They cost $21.95 aus and for me, that is not unexpensive. Another point against them, they don´t last too much, for me, about 2-3 hours, but that is not a problem if you use a lip primer. Finally, and this is for retailers girls, although I said the package was nice, it has a problem, the lip can fall out by the edges and it can be disgusting (not for me, I don´t care).

Overall, I have to say, I´m totally inlove with these lipsticks, I´m trying to control myself to not buying anymore (sometimes less is more). I only own 4...but I´m planning to get candy apple and peach parfait...(maybe when I travel to Chile, because they can cost less) but the 2 by 1 in Priceline is tempting, right?

Brown Sugar (the perfectu nude for dark skin, just be careful with the edges of your lips, my big fat mistake)

Cherry Tart

Tutti Frutti

Sweet Tart
I really recommend these lipsticks, they are awesome, specially if you buy 2 by 1 in Priceline!!

My birthday outfit and make up

Yesterday was my birthday and as a birthday´s present, my husband gave me an outfit from Forever New. Since I arrived in Australia I fell in love with this store. It is based in a so female style with so beautiful designs that I think every woman who loves fashion can find something for her there. So, based on my new outfit I made a special make up and a hairstyle which I learned from you tube beauty gurus. I added the links under the pictures.

My new outfit: white blouse and black denim Forever New
Earrings from Colette

Make up: what I used: FACE
Foundation Revlon color stay (this is perfect for oily skin like mine)
Lóreal true match powder
NYX Mosaic powder (11 Truth)
Bnefit Hoola bronzing powder

Bh cosmetics 120 palette second edition
eyeshades: brown and deep brown (metallic shimmer)
Revlon colorburst lip butter in Tutti Frutti
I made part of this make up Prom Perfection (without the purples shades)

I tried to make this hairstyle Katniss Everdeen´s reaping braids (second part of the tutorial)
I adored the result, although it was far from being perfect!

As a hairstyler, I am a completely disaster, so I decided to blog about this style because I think it was very easy to achieve and it looks simply, beautiful and is totally in (braids are the must of hairstyles). An if I can make it, you can as well.
The outfit I think it is a classic, I mean, in Australia every woman is wearing this style and is very comfortable, nice and wearable. Don´t you think so?
I hope you like my post today.
