ELF vs NARS

I have always wanted to do one of these on my blog so when I saw that Elf had come out with a perfect dupe for the Nars duo in Laguna and Orgasim I thought it would be perfect for my first one.

Obviosuly from the brands there is a very big price difference between the two. My overall opinion is that the Elf blush and bronzer is just as good as the Nars so if you can not afford to try out the Nars please dont miss out and try the Elf.


Left is Elf Right is Nars 




The bronzers are nearly assact. I cant even tell the difference of which one I prefer. The colours are almost the same the texture and the way it looks on my skin is flawless with both. The only little difference is that I think the Nars one does stay on my skin a little longer.

With the blushes the organisgm is a little deeper in colour but there is not to much of a difference. On this skin they both look incrediable applying the most perfect blushy pink colour. Both blushes are super pigmented and apply beautifully on the skin. Again like the bronzer if we are getting really picky the Nars one stays on longer than the Elf. The blush from Elf also has a little more glitter in it so if this isnt your thing than go with Nars

I find myself using the elf one on a daily basis, especially the bronzer, with a price point of under $15.00 it doesnt matter if you go through it.

If you are picticular with packaging like I am I bet your thinking that the Elf wouldn't be as nice! But in fact there are both the same in my opinion.

Overall if your on a price crunch than defitiley try out the Elf one but if you like to splurge on a quality product than the Nars is for you!

Lets Talk Hair Extensions!


Hi everyone, Yes I am back! I can not wait to re launch Style Couture Beauty with you all soon. I have some exciting things coming your way so please stay tuned, not only on here but on my Youtube channel and on my Instagram. But enough about that onto todays topic.....



Hair extensions!








For a self anounced "girly girly" you would assume this would be a staple in my beauty room! But infact until this past weekend I have never used/ owned hair extensions before, so you can guess my excitment when I got the opportunity to work with an amazing company and try them out for myself.
I was kindly sent some hair extensions by Irresitable Me! This was such an exciting process. I jumped on there website and imediantly starting researching the different types, lenths and colours. I know this may seem like basic information for all my fellow hair extension wearing ladies but for me I was so suprised at the sellection process. I watched a colour selecting video which made the process really easy. I am so happy with the colour I picked which was Chocolate Brown to say it is an exact match would be an understatment. The length( 24 inches) and weight were also beyond perfect. When curling my hair last night I found it hard to distinguish what was my hair and what was the hair extension. In my mind I always thought hair extension would be wirey and not natural looking however these Iresitable Me extensions blended perfectly with my hair I could defintily feel the quality of this product. As I am a newby to hair extension I was a little scared about putting them in and also styling them, however when sitting down on saturday night to do my hair it was suprisigly easy. When using my favourite curling iron, the curl turned out exactly how it would in my natural hair and infact the curl stayed in longer.




If you are looking at getting some hair extensions I would highly recommend checking out Irresistible Me Hair extensions - www.irresistableme.com or check out there Instagram Page irresistableme_hair

Christmas Gift Sets




I love this time of year the weather is getting warmer, its time for parties, Sunday afternoon drinks and its almost time for Christmas! I love the spirit of Christmas, the time spent with family and friends, the decorations, gift buying and the overall festivities.
 
When it comes to beauty this would be one of my favourite times of the year I love the beauty packs that each brand launch every year. This packs are not only great value for money but there normally the best of there products for the year, in the best packaging but my favourite part is that you can buy the gift sets that are mini's or sample sizes so that you can try without having to buy the full size not knowing wether or not you will like it. I did this last year with the benefit gift pack I loved it ! It was $36.00 and had around 10 to 12 travel size items. I had never used many Benefit products before so this was perfect for me to try and than buy the ones I wanted from there.

I have seen some of the Tarte collection and I think they look amazing! I really want to get my hands on some of that. Also Mac do a great Holiday Collection so hopefully I can try some of those.

Today in the mail I recieved a Mecca catolgue which got me even more excited for the upcomming season.
The Nars limited edition Fashion Tech Gloss looks perfect for me you get 4 in the pack for $52.00
Another Nars gift set is the Laser cut cheek eye and lip set which gives you 3 eye shaddows, A blush and bronzer and a miniutre lipgloss for $79.00
 
Lastly from Nars is the Hi def lip colour pencils - you get 5 for $65.00
 
 
 
I have always wanted to try out the Mecca brand of skin care however it has been on the pricy side and have also bought cheaper but again they have created a great travel size pack with 7 travel size skincare products for $70.00 which has everything you need to trial out there skincare before buying the full size.

The most excited limited edition gift set of this year would be the Glam Glow gift set for $92.00 which comes with the full size Thirstymud hydrating treatment and smaller size of the supermud and youthmud.

Now by no means is this all of the gift sets available honestly this year Nars has got so many amazing gift sets that I believe are the perfect presents.

If the above ones are too expensive Bare Minerals have some great stocking stuffers. The first one is a lipgloss and mascara for $19.00 and the second 2 lipglosses for $26.00.
 
 
 
 
Hopefully that helps you for some great ideas. All in one shop!!!
 Happy shopping !!!

Sydney IMATS 2014

Sydney Imats 2014
The getting ready mess! 


 

 
 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
So as I announced many times now I recently went to Imats Sydney and let me start off by saying what an amazing time I had. The whole trade show was an great experience and I only wish I can go again. I didn' really know what to expect when walking through the doors, but before I had even walked through the gates I must have showed up at the most perfect time because my taxi driver dropped me off right on 11.10 right infront of the beautiful Karissa from Satnightsalrite. I have had the pleasure of meeting her before but I was shocked to see her there with her boyfriend and a massive group of fans standing around her. I was shocked when  I was handed a cute little bag with 2 pairs of her lashes in it. How lovely was that!!!  
 
 
Than I walked in, straight in front was Mac to which I made my way over immediatley. The Mac line and counter was busy, now that I think of it I don't think it was as busy as I had first imagined. But it was a bit of a snatch and grab job. Some advice for people going is to have a list! Mine list considered of 3 items which where favourites and also sold out! Therefore I was just looking and grabbing and maybe not making the best decisions, however now I am happy with everything I bought. There was 20% off Mac which I thought was a really good deal as we all know Mac never has sales so I took advantage, but now thinking of it I should have bought more. One thing I can not believe I didnt buy was Lipsticks. I didnt buy one I think the reason for this was that it was 3 people deep and was'nt going to take the risk of getting an elbow in the eye lol Just joking but seriously it was a bit hard. The line actually wasnt to bad for Mac I probably waited around 30 mins to which while standing there I added another 2 things to my basket. Overall with my discount I only spent $138.00 as it was my first stop I didnt want to spend all my money.  
 
 
 
While waiting in the checkout queues you can watch everyone walk by with there bags. I than spotted a hot pink and black bag...... It was Sigma! I died I had been looking at the exhibitors list for weeks and they were not on there. It turns out there came under a company that brings them to Imats which is why we didnt know. So of course I b lined it through the crouds past other booths to find Sigma. I found it!!! It only had about 7 people deep around it the whole time lol but I had a voucher from work which was a prepaid credit card for $250.00 so I knew that was going to be spent on Sigma. We all know I am a massive fan of Sigma and have really needed some more brushes so this was perfect.
 
 
So after Mac and Sigma I had time to wander around and just spend time exploring through the booths and exploring some new brands I had never heard of before. I was excited to buy some new products and stock up on some lashes. I find it so funny that I went to Imats and did NOT BUY ONE LIPSTICK!...  What it wrong with me? lol I have been loving my lipsticks latley but I just didnt! So weird.
By this time it was about 2.00 I hadnt really looked to see who would be speaking but I was so happy to go sit down when I did becuase I watched the most incredible Mackeup artist to which I could not walk away from. I literally looked at my watched after listening to her it was 3.30 she was so good time just flew. Her name is Nicole Thompson a senior artist for Mac - she works mostly now in Editorial such as Elle, Harper's Bazaar, Shop til you drop, Cosmo and Womans Day to name a few. Not only does she work in editorial but also devotes most of her time in televsion on shows such as The Voice, Australian Next top Model, The today show and today tonight. I found everything she said to be so usefull and informative. I loved how she explained everything in a way that anyone would understand and after her coaching and tips be able to do. I loved her attention to detail with the priming and the preporation of the face. We all want our makeup to stay on longer, to look dewer or to stay matte!  however I now realised that most of us dont give it the time it needs to make sure that the foundation to your makeup stays on to therefore prolong your makeup. The time she spent on the model on the face alone was crazy. Now I defitley dont have the time to do this everyone morning before work, but I do relaise it takes a little more than a face moisturer and primer to make your makeup stay on. If you get the chance check her out honeslty I learned so much I was really in a trance and couldnt take my eyes off.
 

Her website is www.nicolethompson.com.au
 
 
After watching the amazingly talented Nicole I went for a wonder through all the other exhibitors I stumbled across a both that sold Makeup Forever! I was so excited to try out some of there products I had never bought anything from this brand before so was excited to try it out!!! By this time I had spent way to much money but could'nt pass up on this. From what I have used of this brand so far the products I purchased are incrediable. They last all day when I wear them without making my skin greasy. For me this isn't always easy finding products that stay all day but they do. I ended up purchasing 1 concealer, 1 bronzer and a pressed powder. I really wanted the HD foundation however Icould not find a colour to match.
 
These minx lashes by Egyptian Queen are bananas!!!
 
 
By this stage it was around 4 pm and my feet where getting sore :) so I decided to call it a day I had gone to all the exhibitors, meet and witnessed some talented and amazing people . Imats was honestly amazing I can't wait to go again. My word of advice is to save all year because once you get there you won't be able to stop!

I hope you enjoyed this post my Imats haul video will be up in the next couple of days so make sure you check that out!

Makeup Madness !!


So much has been going on lately I have been neglecting my beloved Blog! However I am trying to be more regular. I have said this before but until you make Youtube videos you don’t understand how long it takes to prepare red ready, set up, film than edit than upload. Like one 15 minute video can take over 5 hours of planning and putting together. I don’t know how some people do daily uploads.
Anyways an update! I am still building my house which has taken a long time but since the slab went down it’s seem to be flying up! Nathan and I are so happy its finally coming together as he have picked out everything so long ago we have forgotten what we picked! Regardless it’s a very time consuming process, plus my Youtube channel plus working full time! I honestly can’t wait to put my beauty room together I have so many pieces of furniture ready to go to assemble. It’s so funny because I basically have all the furniture for my beauty room but yet don’t have a couch or dining table! See I have great priorities. I am so excited to do a room tour and film not sitting on the floor but actually at my vanity.
Here are some of my latest videos !
