Guys, guess what? I burnt my left boob on my curling tong. It was on my bed and I was topless and I stretched across my bed to grab my phone and a very loud and very distinct 'SSSSSSSSS' sound was heard and white hot searing pain shot through my chest and I had, in fact, given my tit a 3rd degree burn. After the weeping (myself and the wound) and as it began to heal after about a week I began to put BIO OIL on it so that I wouldn't scar. The next day I could already tell a massive difference. I was like Jesus had come during the night while I slept and put his hand over my breast. The pervert. Anyway, bio oil...I'm about it.
I say this about every foundation I review on here but I am in love with this Stay-Matte foundation by Clinique. Fuck, I love all Clinique foundations actually! Especially when it comes to value for money. They are on average 50 bucks and whilst Armani Face Fabric is by far the Beyonce of all foundations, sometimes I just can't part with $90, you know? I did use this Stay-Matte stuff over summer though, when my skin is a little oiler than usual so I might change for something a little more dewy when this is up for winter. But I doubt it to be honest, because I can't fault this guy one bit. It covers, it stays in place, it doesn't crease, it's a dream basically.
Whilst at the Clinque counter I got suckered in to buy the powder as well. Truth be told, I'm not usually a fan of loose powder. Not because it is crap but because it seems messy and like a lot of effort, like you can't really carry it around with you and stuff. Well, I am glad I got convinced by that white robed minx to buy this because it sets my make-up perfectly. Also, remember how I had bought that Smashbox face brush? Well it goes perfectly with the Clinique loose powder. I enjoy powdering my nose whilst wearing my silk kimono and listening to Ella Fitzgerald. Ok, I did it once but I enjoyed it.
My favourite youtube beauty gurus Pixiwoo brought out a line of make-up brushes called Real Techniques and I am a huge, huge fan. I find that make-up brushes are the most irritating things to buy when you're not like this amazing make-up artist because you don't really know what you are doing, therefore you end up just using the shitty brush that comes with your products and those things are about as useful as a chocolate teapot. These clever girls have cut out all the crap and by crap, I mean the MAC cosmetics 59 and 567 and 235 number for their brushes...what a pile of wank! How confusing does it actually need to be? Not at all when it comes to these brushes! Go onto the site and the girls have done a tutorial on each brush and make it nice and simple for us everyday make-up users. Plus, they are cheap! And for Aussies they are stocked in Priceline. Winning all round ladies.
Another fabulous thing came into my life in yet another tube and it was sent from Heaven aka Evo. It is a sealant to put on the ends of your hair to help mend and/or prevent split ends and it works! If you bleach your hair or use heating tools or if you're not bald then you have split ends and they are evil little assholes. I love this stuff because you can put it on wet or dry hair! Because you know how you buy stuff that can only be applied to wet hair and you only remember that you have it once you have already dried your hair? Well, with this it dun matter! Oh what a small life I lead.
