Antipodean Beauties – Winter

Antipodean Beauties

Sorry for disappearing on y’all – my little boy picked up a bug last week which then spread through the rest of the family like wildfire, rendering us all useless. Don’t kids make the best ‘patient zero’?

I’m thrilled that the Antipodean Beauties concept has been so well received! Thank you so much for all your lovely comments on my last post. Here is my take on Week 3’s theme – WINTER 🙂

130824 - Winter 2 130824 - Winter 1

This is my new favourite palette – I picked it up last week during Target’s sale on Chi Chi Cosmetics (25% off!). This is the Chi Chi Glamorous Eyes Palette in ‘Sultry’ – isn’t it gorgeous? My biggest weakness is palettes – show me a good palette and I go weak at the knees (yes, I probably need to get out more!). So when I saw this week’s Antipodean Beauties theme, I knew I just had to use this palette – not for the typical bronze and nude shades, but for the gorgeous deep purple, plum and lilac shades!

    • Thank you Kerri! This is the only Chi Chi palette I’ve got and I’m really impressed with the quality – the shadows are very pigmented and there are 8 palettes altogether in this collection (including one that is meant to be a bit of a dupe for the Urban Decay Naked palette – I think it’s called Nudes). I think they RRP for about $22.95 but I got mine for about $17.00 with the Target sale so it is worth waiting for Myer / Target to have a sale to give them a shot?

  1. Wow the Chi Chi Sultry palette has such gorgeous shades! I love the incorporation of the nude shades along with the pretty purples. You overall makeup look is beautiful! 🙂
