In the Spotlight // Highlighters

I have another In the Spotlight post coming at you today, only this time we're literally in the spotlight as we take a look at my highlighter collection! It's about to get LOUIS LITT up in here! I've been meaning to do this post for a while and I think I'm pretty happy with my current collection. The Anastasia Beverly Hills x Nicole Glow Kit is calling my name though... but alas, here we are at the moment! I've tried to organise them by colour family for best comparison. I'll also try to be brief but we could be in for a long one!

In the Spotlight // Lush

Lush products have been a mainstay in my collection for years now, whether it be their body or skincare products! Their products are fun - and effective - and I love the ethos behind the brand. They're all about fighting animal cruelty, their packaging uses recycled plastics (and they have a great recycling packaging program where you can get a free face mask if you bring in your empty packaging) and they are handmade and use a lot of great ingredients. Among many other reasons, they're just a really great brand altogether and their employees are helpful and energetically bubbly (which can sometimes be overbearing, but hey, it's their job!). They have such a huge range of products and while I haven't tried all of them (not even close!), I do think I've tried enough to write up a brand spotlight post! I actually mention them quite a lot on my blog - mostly in empties posts - but haven't ever really devoted whole posts to them! Sidenote - this is my 400th post! Wowheee!

Like Music to My Ears #7

It's been a looooong time since my last music post, which is a bit unfortunate really! I tend to like to do these as round ups of albums I've been listening to - I'm the kind of person who listens to whole albums on repeat until I get tired of them - and not a lot of albums have really hooked me in the past six-ish months. That being said, there have been a few really good new releases and some artists I've just discovered! Plus! It's music festival season so I thought y'all might want some recs ;) Lately I've just been really enjoying listening to the Triple J hitlist which is where I tend to keep up to date with new music and discover new peeps!

Empties #13

Hellloooo... is this thing on?! Long time no see peeps! I'm back from my longer-than-intended hiatus! The past month or so has been absolutely hectic for me and I seriously had no time to even think about blogging, let alone actually taking photos or sitting down and writing a post! I've been absolutely slammed with assessment (it's been my biggest first half of semester ever), not to mention it was my sister's wedding on the weekend! It was a very DIY wedding so the days leading up to the wedding were super busy setting up the decor and the venue (and then cleaning up after!). I did her makeup on the day - along with mine and my other sister as we were bridesmaids - which was quite stressful but still super amazing! I do plan on doing a post on the products I used because I was really happy with how it turned out - I'm just waiting until the professional photos come in! Anyway, I'm coming at you today with an overdue empties post. I was going to do this a few weeks ago but I realised I didn't actually have a lot of empties, but a lot of things were aaaalmost finished so I used those suckers up! I've got a lot of products to go through so I'll try and be as brief as possible!

In the Spotlight // Matte Liquid Lipsticks

I've been meaning to do a round-up post of my matte liquid lipsticks for the longest time (same with highlighters - I'll get to those soon!!), but I always had some excuse that I didn't have enough or I would wait until I got all the ones on my wishlist. Well, it seems like a lot of the beauty community is starting to get over the intense trend that was the liquid lip, and I think I'm among them! Don't get me wrong, I still love a good liquid lip and I have found a few really good formulas that aren't too drying but are still long lasting. But, I think I've gotten all of the ones that I've wanted and don't have an itch to check out any of the new launches (*cough* Urban Decay *cough*). So, I guess now is as good a time as any to share my collection with you guys!
