I’m always looking for ways to make filming my chapters easier, and staring at 25 lipstick bullets doesn’t make it easier, especially when you need to open all of them to check the colour. So it made sense to create this mini palette of my top 25 most used lipsticks. It means I can see them all at a glance, plus it’s extremely travel friendly! And I much prefer my own palette than one you can buy in store because this way I know and trust the quality of each lipstick I’ve melted.
If videos aren’t your thing, then I’ve typed out a step by step guide for you
Start by lighting a candle
Gently heat your knife just above the flame for around 5-7 seconds, then cut about 1 cm off the tip of your chosen lipstick.
Place the lipstick in an empty pan
Heat the pan over the flame until the product has completely melted
Leave the pan to cool and set for around 4-5 minutes
Yes, another Monday, yet no polish post! I’m actually enjoying the break from having to swatch a bunch of polishes, but I’m hoping to bring them back starting next week I might move them around to different days in the future depending on how I go~
Today though, I wanted to talk about how I label my MAC palettes. For the longest time I used to just write the name on a sticker and stick it to the palette, but I’ve found that to be very inconvenient when I purchase more colours and want to move the pans around. So I came up with this design!
It’s a technique I used to use as a kid, when I wanted to laminate my drawings to turn them into bookmarks, but my parents couldn’t afford to have it done So I used sticky tape instead~ Steps below:
Write the name of the pan on a piece of paper
Cut out each label
Sandwich each label between two pieces of sticky tape
Cut out the label
Stick it on the palette using Blu-Tack
And that’s it! Reusable, waterproof and movable Hope you guys will find it useful!
Beauty Snapz is one of those cute products that are great for travel, like the Colgate Wisps. Basically they are cotton tips that contain liquid in the tube. When you snap one end of the cotton tip, all the liquid saturates the opposing cotton tip and allows you to apply it. There is a range of different liquids from:
Instant Lipstick Remover / Corrector
Overnight Lip Revitalizer
Waterproof Mascara Remover & Corrector
Eye Makeup Remover & Corrector
Beauty Snapz was kind enough to send me one of each, however I figured for the purpose of this review I would talk about the one I’m currently using! If you are interested on reviews for the others, just let me know
You can see on the instructions below how they are to be used, I tend to always get a bit of mascara / eyeliner migration to the bottom of my lash line by the end of the day when I use certain brands and so in the past I would take a bit of tissue with water and try and dab it off, but I could never get it completely off
Instead of a video, I decided to take a bunch of photos of myself using this to illustrate how they work!
One of the things I recommend doing afterwards is washing your lower lash line with a bit of water, maybe it’s just me but I always wash off any makeup remover from my face as I don’t like to let it sit.
If you have sensitive skin, I recommend using the Eye Makeup Recmover & Corrector version instead as it appears to be paraben free. I’ll probably move on to that one once I finish my Waterproof mascara formula, which thus far hasn’t caused me any issues
Cute idea right? More convenient than carrying a bottle of makeup remover with me, I find using moisturiser gives similar results, but tend to end up being a bit messier
If you are interested in purchasing these, you can do so for $5.99AU each at Big W.
