• Shade + Light eye palette

Brand: Kat Von D -via Sephora online

This is one of the most beautiful palettes ever created. It is simple and beautiful with every single colour necessary for the neutral palette.

As most of you are well aware Sephora has launched their online site in Australia so finally the trip to Sydney for many just to get your beautiful hands on the treasures is now unnecessary.

I was fortunate enough to get my hands on the contouring palette also and the Shade + Light eyeshadow brush.

This gorgeous palette features 3 staple base colours and boasts another 9 pans (12 in total) The larger pans measure 5cms x 2.5cms and the smaller pans measure 3.5cms x 1.5cms

The entire palette (closed) measures 19cms x9cms. A sturdy design with a genuine mirror in the lid.

Let’s look at what Sephora has to say about this breathtaking palette!

  • Define and shape your eyes with neutral shades to create a well-done eye makeup design.
  • Try placing the deeper shades where you want to see the most lift or definition, and use the lighter shades to soften and diffuse.
  • To complement your neutral eye design, try adding a soft tone in your brows from the palette for added volume and fullness.
  • Use shades from the colour quad that best complements your skintone for a natural look, or use shadows from another quad to create more subtle or dramatic looks.
  • To discover more ways to contour, see Kat Von D’s illustrated, step-by-step guide featured in the Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette insert.

This palette is truly amazing and it is only $65. I have paid for palettes that are 3 times this price and they do not hold a candle to this mind blowing colour collection by a genius talent.

Too Faced Le Grand ChateauYes, Mecca Maxima are delivering the Too Faced goods full forced! I initially saw this masterpiece on the Too Faced website and had to have it.

This glorious keep forever hard cardboard Chateau is Too Faced to the T!

Once you pull the chateau out of the box, it’s height with roof is approx 18cms x 12.5 cms across and 7cms deep

You pop the roof off and see this glorious internal design (see photos) and the cute doors of the chateau open and close to expose the goodies inside! The doors have magnets embedded at the base. Thye sure think of everything!

Let me say….there’s decent sized palettes inside. Measuring (closed) 13cm x 10.5cm. Each of the shadow pans measures 2.5cm x 2cm (There are 6 in each palette) and the blush measures a generous 7cm x 3.5cm (There is one per palette)

On the rear of each palette there is a white area which is a “To: and From:” gift tag in case you want to give a palette to a loved one but… really.. there’s a far higher chance we will be keeping this collection intact.. OR buying two and breaking them up :o

You also receive a 4.7g Too Faced “Better than sex” mascara

You can grab these (while they last!) from Mecca Maxima for $70.00aud








  • Natural Matte eyeshadow collection

Brand: Toofaced

Too Faced, what are you doing to me? Good things! This palette measures a beautiful and handy 8cmx 11cm (closed)

It is a HARD metal encased palette. It opens up to reveal a perfectly sized (real) recessed mirror.
The palette is just so ridiculously perfect, boasting 9 of their bestselling shades
The main shades on the left (Heaven, Lace teddy and Nudie)
With the smaller pans of (Cashmere bunny, Strapless, Honey Butter, Sexpresso, Risque, Chocolate cookie)
I am all over this palette!
Sometimes you find yourself buying a palette with the intention of using 2 colours where this palette caters to you full force.
The blending of these shadows is insanely flawless. It draws a very very defined line between eyeshadows that look pretty in a palette but apply mediocre
and then you have a palette that gives you the look and results that makeup artists are able to achieve.
The texture is literally a creamy powder matte. How they achieved this luxurious feeling will be something that others will try and replicate forever and a day.
This is my absolute go to palette. I love that it is matte (my favourite) and applies like a dream.
