Sorry about that accidental hiatus, there!

Oh man you guys! I've been reading your blogs and commenting occasionally and suddenly BAM! It's been nearly two months and I haven't posted!

I'm wearing make-up nearly every day and I've been trying to photograph looks, but I still don't have a good system going with my lights so it's really hard. These days I tend to have to run off and do things straight after I paint my nails as well, so no nail pics either.

I've still been buying stuff and putting it aside to review - look!

That's just the indie/nail polish box, I have a few gifties from Suzanne I should review as well.

The reason for my absence is that aside from adjusting to having to do most of the cooking and cleaning in our little house, I've now got an evening job which means I don't get home til 7:30ish and by the time said cooking and cleaning is done, I am SO TIRED, not to mention my eye makeup is usually creased to hell and again, the lights are just blech.

The other reasons are good reasons. In fact they are BRILLIANT reasons: I have a job as the media liason for a small graphic novel publishing company in Perth. I have been interning there since Supanova of 2010 and they offered me this PAID position a few months ago. I've been privelaged enough to talk to many great bloggers and writiers in the industry, and the reponses I've had back about our books (which I'm a fan of) has been freaking awesome.

Breaking up the wall of text with a look!

Sugarpill Midori & Tako, and I don't remember what the blue was :(

The other job I've picked up is that of writer/reviewer for and that is where a lot of my energy has been going! I'm writing 1500+ words a week for them. It's an absolute dream. That's a link to my author page and yes, my real name, and my face! So you might see a few full-face posts on this blog now that my secret make-up-obsessed identity is all shot to pieces. If you enjoyed my non-makeup reviews, if you like games, comics or pop culture, I will totally beg you to bookmark the site. The staff are all really friendly and keen on both getting news out to their readers, doing reviews and analysing stuff and it's been a real pleasure getting to know them all.

Anyway, back to makeup! I'm going to do my best to post at least once a week here. Feel free to pester me on Twitter! I've missed you guys a lot and I don't want to stop make-up blogging, since I feel like it's helped me get to where I am now, both personally and professionally.

Supanova is next weekend so there will be some non-makeup posts, though nothing like Jerry's ridiculously awesome con photos! I am so jealous of all her hilarious celeb duckface pics.

I have, as pictured, a butt-ton of reviews to do. If you have something you'd like to see first:
  • Aromaleigh v2 e/s
  • Australis polishes
  • Fyrinnae e/s (one new-ish one) and the Coffin Velvet lip lustre
  • Eccentric Cosmetics - primer, one e/s and one lip product
  • Two Morgana Cryptoria lipsticks
  • One Scaredy Cat Cosmetics e/s
  • Two Shiro e/s
  • Misc nail polishes including Ozotic Pro, Rokk96 and Orly
Let me know, because I have no idea where to start! I will try to take photos if I wear make-up over the weekend, though.


  1. I've never heard of Eccentric, so maybe those?

    1. No problems! I will probably do a quick swatch of the two products and then a wear test of the primer in a few days time. Thanks for commenting :)

  2. Looking good! Great to see you back :P

  3. Um, WTFHOWAWESOME on the job front! That's freaking amazing!

    1. Yes indeed! It's keeping me super busy, and I'm enjoying it very much :)

  4. Haha thanks for the shoutout.

    Congrats on the paid position, that's awesome! Is it with Gestalt, or are you with some other company? ;]
