Happy Friday! Volume#8

Who doesn’t love a Friday? It’s the start to the weekend where we beauty lovers can get some more time to indulge in our stashes of beauty items. More so we get maybe some time for ourselves to just do nothing much or something extravagant! It’s also a time for me to share more about me to you that may or may not be beauty related. Feel free to share what you will be up to this weekend. Happy Friday!

Beauty Adventure? Spring Cleaning! Well in the Caribbean we just have two seasons, a wet and dry. No spring season really but the term is still used and I had to use it this week. There were makeup and nail polish stashes all over the house! The men folk in my life were not impressed. On top of that I am a hoarder, not just of makeup but of packages. I hate throwing away the original boxes but they just had to go since these simple things were taking up way too much space. 
So step one was to gathering all the things from all the nooks and crannies they were put in. I recruited my two nieces and made them pretend we were on a treasure hunt for golden makeup treasure!
Next I organised the one big stash into smaller piles according to type. So one stash for lipsticks, one for eyeliners, one for face products and so on. 
Discard old, expired items and good, unwanted colours I happily gave to my nieces to play dress up. Their mother was not amused but I was trying to play my part as the loving, generous aunt! Just doing my job right?
Get myself some organisers. I got a 24 lipstick organiser and 3 tier almost clear drawer from Amazon. Some simple holders for longer items, worst case use some vases or tall glasses. I still left the boxes for the MAC lipsticks since they can’t be store upside down and I wanted to see the name of the lipstick to identify the colour. 
I feel much better now that I have everything organised. It’s much easier to find things and make better decisions for an overall look. On a positive side, I thought I had way more makeup that this and so you can now find me at the nearest makeup watering hole to quench my thirst for more.

Plans for the weekend? I’m super excited to go see the Hunger Games! I’m halfway through the Mockingjay (third book in the series) and so far I’m totally hooked. I also want to do some shopping around for more makeup organisers available locally. I’m still on my organisational beat! Still need to find a better way to store my loose eye-shadows.

Something about me? This year I want to branch out from using the same makeup brands I have and try some new ones. So far, I have ventured into the land of NARS but I’m thinking to expand that to Inglot, Urban Decay, TooFaced, The Balm, Bobbi Brown and Sleek Makeup! Any other suggestions? What are your favourite makeup brands? Share!!!!!
Happy Friday!

Revlon Sculpting Blush Palette in Pink

I have never been so disappointed in a Revlon product before… until now! Maybe I chose the wrong colour for my skin-tone but there are so many other things about this palette that makes me think I should have bought some more lip butters instead. Let’s start with what I do love about the palette. It’s simple black compact that has the same sleek look as the other Revlon photo-ready items. I find a highlighter, contour shade and blush in one palette is a great idea too. Having more blush colour in terms of quantity with smaller sections for the highlighter and contour makes perfect sense since I will use more of the blush anyway. The colours as they appear in the pan look perfectly coordinated to work with each other. You get a small brush with soft bristles in your kit to ensure you can just pop this in your bag and you’re off.  In the sunlight Now here is where it all goes downhill like Jack and Jill with their pail of water. Let’s start with the swatches which made me think twic
