Killer Queen Katy Perry Oh So Sheer Perfume Review

I love perfumes and wear a different one everyday. The latest I have tried is the newest one by Katy Perry called Oh So Sheer.

Spring Time's Eau de Royalty! A Light and Luminous Fragrance for the Spring season offering all the Killer Queen royalty with a little bit of playful attitude.

I love when perfume bottles are so well presented and this one definitely is unique and different.

The bottle is the prettiest lilac colour which I love and the shape is a diamond shaped bottle with a crown shape for the top.

The fragrance is made up of:
Top Notes - Purple Plum, Mulberry, Blackberry and Elderberries
Middle Notes  - Red Velvet Flower, Rainbow Plumeria, Purple Freesia and Purple Lilac
Bottom Notes  - Cashmeran, Natural Patchouli Heart and Liquid Praline

This is a light fruity scent with a mix of some floral sweet scent too - when first sprayed is strong and then fades throughout the day. This wears for about 3 hours, I do wish it lasted longer.

It is a nice light perfume with a fresh clean smell. I haven't tried any other Katy Perry fragrance but definitely would say this is a great one to add to your collection.

Have you tried this or any other Katy Perry fragrance?

Chi Chi Glamorous Nudes Eyeshadow Pallette Review

Chi Chi is a brand that I have never tried before but I have seen it in Target, so a few months ago they had a huge Christmas sale on Chi Chi products so I decided to buy the Chi Chi Glamorous Nudes Eyeshadow Pallette.

The Chi Chi Glamorous Nudes palette comes with twelve eye shadows  - there are ten shimmery shadows and two matte shadows. The colours are mostly soft pinks, browns, taupe, mauve, blue shadows which are all so wearable for everyday looks. I wear eyeshadow everyday to work and this palette is all I need to wear simple gorgeous eyeshadows.

I really love the staying power of these eyeshadows (I always wear a eye primer) They don't crease on me and they look good all day.

The texture of these eyeshadows are soft and pigmented without much fallout at all which I love the most. They are so easy to work with, I usually like to wear one colour all over my lid and then just blend out the sides with a slightly darker colour.

They really are good quality eyeshadows at an affordable price. They tick all the boxes - great pigmentation, no fallout, long wearing, soft/buttery texture and wearable colours.

This is available from Target stores and Chi Chi website for $22.95aud. I am so impressed with this product, I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for great quality eyeshadows.

Clinique cheek pop in plum pop review

Clinique recently released some new blushes and it took just one look for me to fall in love with this blush. This blush packaging and presentation is totally gorgeous.

A pretty flower shaped blush - stunning! How could you not like this blush?!

So you already know that I love the sturdy simple packaging. The flower detail is definitely eye catching and I love that you can see it through the clear top and the colours are so pretty - there are four shades in total. I have the plum pop shade which is a beautiful pink colour that I think is wearable for all skin colours.

Clinique says: Vibrant yet natural-looking cheek colour that looks virtually powderless. In a silky smooth, stay-true formula with shades for every skin tone. That just-pinched look, simply effortless.

So pretty!
The texture of this blush is silky smooth and really finely milled. When you first apply to your cheeks it is a light coverage but buildable and as you apply more you see the gorgeous colour come to life. It blends effortlessly and lasts all day on the skin.

It really gives a natural finish to the skin with a beautiful pop of colour.  A beautiful addition to anyone's makeup collection - you can check out more about the blushes on the Clinique website here

Beauty tips for those who didn't get a good night sleep!

I love my sleep and try to aim to get a good nights rest every night of at least eight to nine hours however this is always not possible.

So I have some tips for you if you didn't get that good night sleep and you need to look good during the day.

1. Cleanse your skin and use a nice nourishing moisturer that will plump the skin and leave it looking healthy and smooth. Putting a bit of effort to look after your skin will definitely help to make you look alive.

2. Use a concealer to conceal those under eye circles. This is good to hide those dark under eye circles that creep up when you don't have enough sleep.

3. Use a illuminator to give your skin a nice glow to it. I like to use powder illuminator as it is quick to use and easy to apply with a brush. A little is all you need to give you a nice glow around the cheek area, middle of your nose and chin area.

4. Use a bright lipstick to draw attention away from your eyes. Any bright lipstick will do the job of giving you a fresh overall look - I like bright pinks or coral lipstick colours.

5. Take a multivitamin or more specifically vitamin B to give you energy and help you get through the day. Also drink lots of water to help your body stay hydrated.

Do you have any tips for when you don't have enough sleep?

Next is a beauty item BOE nailpolish  (RRP $2) called Purple Haze -  a pretty purple/blue colour with some shimmer in it.

And last items are the Model Co Party proof lipsticks ( RRP $16.95aud each) these have great pigmentation and are smooth to apply. They also come with a mirror on the lid.

Wella Pro Series Max Hold hairspray and mousse review

I have been trying out a few hair products lately and have found some great hair styling products from Wella Pro Series that I really like. Wella Pro Series is a collaboration between professional stylists and Wella experts. The combination of industry inspiration and scientific development resulted in a product designed to give your a salon-fresh feeling at an affordable price.

Wella says: Providing long lasting, 24 hour performance, the Wella Pro Series Styling collection is non-sticky and easy to brush out, whether your look requires amplified volume, strong yet flexible hold or help taming frizz.

I love the hairspray! It is a light spray that sprays evenly on the hair and gives a really nice hold to the hair all day. I love that it doesn't feel tacky and can be combed out. Perfect! I also like to spray this all over my hair to tame my fly aways.

The Wella Pro Series Max Hold Mousse is great if you are wanting volume and texture to your hair. I have short hair so it works great to give me that perfect volumised hair. I find it best to comb through the mousse in the hair and then when semi- wet, blow dry it to the desired style. It works so well and again, it is non - sticky and long lasting.

Overall I really love these styling products from Wella Pro Series - they are very affordable at $7.99aud each and available in Coles supermarket.
Have you tried these products? What styling product works well for you?
