New Year, New (organised) You! WIN a Makeup Box Set for 2012!

31 Dec



If I had to pick only one favourite product from 2011, I’d honestly have to say it was my Glamour Makeup Box Set from The Makeup Box Shop. You might recognise these makeup storage units… yes they are VERY similar to the ones used by the Kardashian sisters as seen on Keeping Up With The Kardashians. The Makeup boxes are made of high quality 5mm thick acrylic and are very sturdy. Very much worth the investment.

My little acrylic family consists of a 5 drawer Glamour Makeup Box (AU$124), brush holder with beads (AU$15 with any box purchase), and a nail polish stand (AU$21) and I have to say… I’m madly in love with my little acrylic family. Before they came along, the state of my bathroom drawers were atrocious and my brushes were squished into a pencil holder… horrible I know!! I couldn’t even consider getting more brushes or makeup in fear of trying to find a place to put them.

And here’s a confession… I’m a massive product packaging hoarder. I’m the girl who keeps all my new makeup in its original packaging and will continue to do so until the box is so tattered it looks horrible or it starts to annoy me. I just found that I could stand my blushes up in boxes in my bathroom drawers and read the names on the top, making it easier to know what’s what. Oh and also because I like to know what ingredients are in what… who knows, I may need to look at some of them if needed in a blog post.

So as you can see below, the Makeup Box holds A LOT of products. It so fun organising your makeup into it, I call it ‘Makeup Tetris’ lol. Having this storage unit was also the push I needed to get my products out of their packaging and into their new home! You can see from the last square that I got rid of a LOT of boxes. It was very therapeutic and great to clean and sort out my product stash. It’s amazing how much room the boxes were taking up in my drawers!

This is a snapshot of what products each draw holds… top drawer – eye shadows, second drawer – blushes, third drawer – lipsticks, fourth drawer – mascaras, concealers, eyeliners and primers, and last drawer (the deepest) – my box-o-powders, foundations, powders, illuminators, Illamasqua glosses, bronzers.

This is my little acrylic family… the brush holder comes with the beads and the nail polish stand holds 12 huge OPI size nail polishes (or more if smaller bottles). The Makeup box is also great to store perfumes on top, in full view when you’re getting ready in the morning, so you don’t forget to spritz yourself – and it also saves bench space. Yey!

Nicole by OPI Kardashian Kolors

14 Jul

Finally! Rumours had been flying around, secret tweets were tweeted, and photos emerged that all pointed to the fact that the Kardashians were releasing a line of nail polishes in conjunction with OPI. And it’s true, Nicole by OPI and the Kardashian/Jenner family announce the launch of Kardashian Kolors, 14 new nail lacquer shades inspired by Kris Jenner and her five daughters—Kourtney, Kim, Khloe Kardashian and Kylie and Kendall Jenner.

I am so obsessed with this family and will need to get my polished paws on these babies whatever way I can, BIBLE! (In Kardashian speak that means I swear to god). I have a feeling that they will only be available in the US and Canada (as we don’t usually get the Nicole by OPI collections here in Australia), so it might prove a little difficult for me… but I will try as hard as I can! How good would it be if it was released here in Oz?!

“We are so excited to work with everyone’s favorite TV family—the Kardashians—to share a diverse collection of fashion-forward shades,” says Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, Nicole by OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. “Kardashian lacquers range from high-shine and sparkly hues to neutral taupe and pinkish coral.”

Each of the 14 shades, which have been co-designed by 27-year-old Khloe and 32-year-old Kourtney, have been named in honour of their other family members. And here are Khloe and Kourtney at the launch in New York on Monday, flaunting some of the kolors from the kollection – ‘ey ‘ey you see what I did there? 🙂

In true OPI style, all the names of the polishes are cute and quirky, and the girls have done a really good job at choosing the names. The 14 shades are called (in order of the top main image):

It’s All About the Glam – Shimmering-white glitz

Kim-pletely in Love – The pink of her dreams!

All Kendall-ed Up – Powder your nose and get some pink on those toes!

Wear Something Spar-Kylie – Glitter-ly the prettiest pink ever!

Sealed with a Kris – This klassy red is top-of-the-line!

Rainbow in the S-Kylie – Girls just wanna have…glitter in every color!

Disco Dolls -Glittery gold glam gone wild!

Kendall on the Katwalk – A head-turning blue-green with a “sparkling” personality!

Listen to your Momager! – If you don’t, you’ll never see this fabulous blue again!

Follow Me on Glitter – A glittery deep gray that always has something to say!

My Empire…My Rules – This take-charge taupe is always on-trend.

Khloé Had a Little Lam-Lam – A deep dark emerald worth falling for.

Hard Kourt Fashionista – This delicious deep brown is the chicest hue in town!

Kourt is Red-y for a Pedi! – This captivating coral looks “fab” on everyone!

Nicole by Opi Kardashian Kolors will be available Holiday 2011 for $7.99 US each ($11.00 CAD)

Online at nicolebyopi.com 

So what do you think of the colours?

Will you be trying to get your polished little paws on this collection? Or should I say kollection?

UPDATE: I came across the Saralli Designs website and found that she stocks the Nicole by OPI polishes! Yeyyyyy

People’s Choice Awards 2011

6 Jan

The 2011 People’s Choice Awards is on at the Nokia Theatre in LA today, and I love looking at the red carpet arrivals and picking my faves. So here they are:

Selena Gomez – she gets top spot because she looks gorgeous in BOTH her outfit choices. Oh and that hair! That is pure dessert hair and I am going to use it as inspiration for when I get my colour done next.

Taylor Swift – Tay looks gorgeous in that colour and the red lippy really sets it off. Bravo Miss Swift!!

Malin Akerman – Malin looks smoking. Loving the darker roots and her boho “lob” (long bob) which is on trend at the moment. Not to mention that dress… REOW! The red accessories are a winner.

The Kardashian sisters – well, simply because they are the Kardashians and they are always impeccable… ’nuff said!

Ashley Tisdale – loving that print dress! And Ash’s bronzed bare makeup.

Which of these are your favourite red carpet look?

Excited that the Kardashians won yet another People’s Choice Award? Thought you were! 😉

RED ALERT: Khloe Debuts New Hair Colour

6 Jan

Tv personality Khloe Kardashian from my favourite reality TV show Keeping Up With The Kardashians has arrived at the 2011 People’s Choice Awards today with her other equally gorgeous sisters, and there’s something different… Khloe now has a fiery mop of redish hair!! I can’t believe it. Take a look for yourself.


What do you think of Khloe’s new hair?

I think the girls look their best when they stick to their natural dark locks. Hopefully this is just a short experimental stage Khloe is going through, wanting to flaunt something different. Remember Kim’s blonde locks?

Le Orange Obsession

5 Dec

I am beyond obsessed with The Kardashians, so when one obsession flaunted another obsession of mine…YSL, I was spell bound. If you haven’t had the pleasure of trying a Yves Saint Laurent lipstick, I say “WHY THE HELL NOT? GET ON IT QUICK STICKS!!” Here is one beautiful creature, Kourtney Kardashian, wearing another object of beauty – Yves Saint Laurent, Rouge Pur Couture #13 Le Orange. L.O.V.E!!

Isn’t she devine? I’m talking about the lipstick now. Rouge Pur Couture is the latest lipstick range released by YSL and I’m needing #13 Le Orange (above) in my life right now. The latest range is inspired by the three YSL emblematic colours: Red, Fuchsia and Orange. Its Couture gold case unveils a highly pigmented, moisturising, protective texture that leaves an exceptional silky finish on your lips that will make people stare (in a good way!). I have one of the YSL Rouge Volupte lipsticks and it’s so creamy, I love it to death, but I’m afraid I’ll chew through it because it’s so creamy – it doesn’t stay on too long. I’ve heard that the Rouge Pur Couture are little less creamy which is good for longevity. The other shade that I’m eyeing off in the Rouge Pur Couture range is #17 Rose Dahlia (below).

Wonder if I could pull #13 Le Orange off? I am that way (coral) inclined. It would help if I had Kourtney’s gorgeous hair, skin, eyebrows, oh hell chuck in her make up artist and income too! I think the Rouge Pur Couture retail for around $50/$55 (ooh ouch) but they are worth it. You can find YSL at Myer and David Jones.

In other news, I ordered the Kardashian’s new book “Kardashian Konfidential” from Amazon.com and I can’t wait to get my hot little manicured hands on it. If you want to purchase it from Amazon you can do so here.

aaaahhh Kris and Bruce Jenner… adopt me!!
