Five Things

1. An Eyeshadow Printer? Apparently so. Refinery 29 reported that at a recent tech conference the Mink 3-D Makeup Printer was presented. How cool is that? Powders to lipstick are in the works and it’s as simple as you pick the colour, the printer does the rest. I have a feeling that if I owned one it would get as intense as my Hama Bead phase…

2. Essie Nail Polish in Style Hunter. I’m not a very pink girl and especially not when it comes to nails, but for the past two weeks I’ve worn nothing else aside from this on my beds. When the polish settles down in the bottle there’s a varnish-free gap up top and that never happens. I think it’s the slightly watermelon quality that keeps it from looking too sickly sweet, but seriously; when will the Style Hunter affair stop? 

3. Brow Threading at Blink. I finally bit the bullet and let a professional do their thang on my brows – a long overdue job – and well, I’m converted. Lily made me do it and I’m bloomin’ glad she did. The main question is did it hurt and while I wouldn’t say it was pain free it was no worse than plucking and I’m so chuffed with the shape and rate of regrowth that came with it; I’ll definitely be going back. Blog post to come.

4. The Arrival of the Summer Drop. Pre-Christmas aside, this is one of the best times of the year for the beauty world. The summer launches are freshly in and it’s about that time when we drop the pastels and go hell for leather with earthy hues of bronze, gold and 50 shades of coral lip. My current favourite places to stalk include the ‘New In’ sections of Selfridges, Cult Beauty and Space NK.

5. Make Up For Ever 5 Camouflage Cream Palette. This was my one lone Sephora purchase when I visited Milan and man was it a good one. I picked up No.2 (middle row, left), which houses four flesh toned concealers and a lilac corrector to banish dullness. It’s now become my go-to palette for bags, blemishes, whatever and the two lightest shades have my complexion match down. The darker one will come in handy when I’m faux glowed and the lilac? Well I’m still working up to that one…

    I LOVE that nail polish! It’s almost winter in Australia so I might have to wait until it starts to warm up before I start to wear those bright nail colours again(shout out to Essie Mint Candy Apple!) :)

    I just started this blog so would love some recommendations or tips and I’m still trying to find my feet!

    Ooh I loved this little round up post! Eyeshadow printing is mental, I work in the technology industry so I’m hoping this will be a trade show I have to cover soon! 😉 I agree, this time of year is so exciting for beauty news!



  • amycino

    Technology these days, it’s getting cray!!! On a side note, I’ve just popped up this weeks vlog if anyone’s interested xx

  • Kate

    Those concealer palettes look great! Then you’d always have the right colour concealer all year round :)

  • SophsChoices

    Such a shame when your favourite concealer no longer matches your skin tone (from tanning) so these palettes look great!



  • Savannah Giersthove

    Threading your eyebrows is just simply the best! I’ve been doing mine for almost a year now and I’m still very happy with the results! x Savannah

    Great roundup, Anna! I’ve been eyeing those MUFE concealer palettes for ages- glad you’re loving yours! And Style Hunter is such a fun shade of pink 😉

  • mikaylaa.s

    Love this post! I’ve been having my brows threaded for a couple years now, and prefer it so much more than waxing! A 3D printer would be insane- I’m curious how that would turn out haha!


  • Lucy Alex

    I watched the video on the 3D make-up printer, sounds insane! I love the look of those concealer palettes- do keep us updated on the lilac shade haha! xx

  • Krissy

    Could you do an updated nail polish collection, please, or only Essie collection on youtube?

  • Yousra

    The MUFE concealer palette looks so neat, but I wish they sold their colours individually at Sephora :(

    I have always wanted to try the MUFE concealer palette. But a tad too expensive in my country so have to order it online. Okay now eyeshadow printer? Umm. Soon I will be selling eyeshadows too and cosmetics company would ran out of business. :p

  • Sandy

    The lilac in that palette is amazing! Definitely need to try it, perfect at brightening up around the nose and eyes, but you only need a teeny tiny bit other wise it is very, ummm, purple haha xx

    Eyebrow threading, is great, although I find that if you don’t maintain it and go back at least every 3-4 weeks, your brows can look a little wolverine like. But nothing a return trip can’t fix.
    A lot about the 3-d makeup printer has been popping up several beauty blogs. People seem to be buying into. It sounds magically, to me seems it’s a little farfetched. I was skeptical about it when I heard about it, when I watch the video, more questions were raised then answered. You should read Dr. Joe Schwarcz’s (a chemist) thoughts on the 3-D printer. No one can debunk people’s theories as eloquently as Dr. Schwarz’s does

  • Emily Allen

    I was reading about the makeup printer the other day it’s amazing, I’d love to try :) I’d love to try that concealer palette I’d feel so creative using it :)


  • Kiss & Make-up

    The idea of having a 3D make-up printer is really intriguing!

  • Look beyond beauty

  • Lauren S
