Mens Christmas Gift Guide 2016

Men are always the hardest to buy for, I reckon. It can be hard to know whether they're into skincare (my husband barely touches it), or whether that bottle of aftershave you're contemplating is going to be collecting dust alongside a dozen others in their bathroom cabinet. But with a bit of research it is possible to find the perfect gift for the guys on your Christmas list and I've got a bunch of suggestions to get you started!

Mens Christmas Gift Guide 2016

Unless they're rocking a Dumbledore-worthy beard, the guys on your shopping list probably need to shave occasionally, so why not restock their bathroom cabinets with shaving creams and post shave balms to make it a more enjoyable chore? 
Kiehl's Close-Shavers Squadron Smooth Glider Precision Shave Lotion (RRP $40NZD) is a thin, nourishing lotion that makes it really easy to get a close shave with no water required. The fragrance is light and subtle, excellent for guys who don't like a strong scent to their products. For a more traditional shaving foam, Johnny's Chop Shop Sharp & Easy Shave Foam (RRP $17NZD) boasts some sweet, retro barbershop inspired packaging and the creamy shaving foam inside has aloe and menthol to soothe skin.
For post-shave care, Johnny's Chop Shop Soul Balm All Purpose Face Balm (RRP $17NZD) is quick to absorb but super hydrating with a lightly musky, classic scent. If you're feeling a bit spendier, the Dermalogica Post-Shave Balm (RRP $49NZD) packs in even more hydration and is slightly mattifying, with oil-controlling properties to boot. 
Of course, if he is rocking a Dumbledore beard (or even one of more modest proportions), he'd probably enjoy a beard oil to soft and condition that facial fuzz. Johnny's Chop Shop Beard Oil (RRP $17NZD) is one my husband has been enjoying; it's got very little scent, which makes it perfect for his sensitive nose and keeps his beard groomed and easy to manage.

Mens Christmas Gift Guide 2016

A personal grooming tool never goes astray and Remington's Barber's Best Personal Groomer (RRP $99.99NZD) covers virtually every need. There are multiple attachments to trim and groom beards, stubble, moustaches, nose and ear hairs, plus it's cordless with a 60 minute operating time before it needs to be recharged. I just spotted that it's currently on sale for 40% off at Noel Leeming until the 13th of December too, score!

Mens Christmas Gift Guide 2016

Moving onto skincare options, where it pays to either know your audience well or get something fairly versatile. 
Sukin's range is unisex but I thought I'd include them in the mens gift guide because my brother (who has pretty awesome taste) is a big fan! Their Super Greens range (RRP $16.99-28.20NZD) blend kale, spirulina and parsley with other skin-loving ingredients like rosehip, jojoba, bamboo and acai to brighten and nourish skin. They're suitable for all skin types, too, which takes out the guess work for you! 
Garnier Pure Active Charcoal Anti-Blackhead 3 in 1 Wash/Scrub/Mask (RRP $13.99NZD) covers all your bases and is great for any guy who appreciates a bit of skincare but doesn't want a bunch of different products jumbling up his skincare routine. It smells really good too, lightly of blueberries but not in an overly sweet way.
If you're shopping for someone who's up on his artists, he's sure to love the limited edition packaging of the Jeremyville X Kiehl's collaboration - you can see the adorable snowman design on the lid at the top of this post. There are a couple of classic Kiehl's products included in the range, including the Calendula Herbal-Extract Toner, Richly Hydrating Hand Cream, Creme De Corps and Ultra Facial Cream (RRP $54NZD, pictured). These are all totally unisex-friendly products, so would really suit anyone!
Don't forget your most important skincare - sunblock! Neutrogena Wet Skin Sunblock Spray (RRP $18.99NZD) is one of the most fought over items in our house - we seriously need one in every room! My sons hate having liquid sunscreen applied, my husband always misses applying it to the back of his neck properly before sports and I get burnt just hanging out the washing (I wish I was exaggerating) so spray on sunblock is a total godsend for us and a must for Christmas stockings. 

Mens Christmas Gift Guide 2016

If you know someone who's pretty sporty, or into the great outdoors, the Pits & Bits Towel Off Body Wash (RRP $6.55NZD) is a nifty wee gift. It gets you nice and clean without any water required - this bottle went straight into hubby's football bag for when the locker room showers are out of order, but we'll probably bring it to Great Barrier Island on our annual summer holiday too, as water restrictions are always in place there. The Zerreau Towel Off Shampoo is a similar concept and comes in apple or strawberry scents. Genius!
What better way to round off a Christmas suggestions list than with some awesome goodies from LUSH? I've done a lot of my Christmas shopping for the hard to buy for guys in our family at LUSH this year and I mean A LOT. They have so much to pick from and they straddle the line of being both a bit fancy and budget friendly, with prices starting from around $6.90NZD for soap and $8.90 for the 100g shower gels. Pictured is Santa FUN ($12.90 for a 200g pottle, mine is in gift set packaging), a multi-use product you can shape and mould like play-doh and Whoosh Shower Jelly ($8.50NZD/100g, $14.90NZD/240g), a citrus and rosemary scented wobbly washer that will have anyone feeling young again. For shower gels, I have a few picks: Lord of Misrule Shower Cream ($13.50NZD/100g, $23.50NZD/200g, $34.90NZD/500g), a lurid green patchouli & peppercorn fragrance that's part of the Halloween & Christmas range. Or from the permanent range, The Olive Branch ($8.90NZD/100g, $16.90NZD/250g, $25.90NZD/500g), a mandarin, olive & bergamot concoction that's mild enough to appeal to anyone while Dirty Springwash ($11.50NZD/100g, $19.90NZD/250g, $29.90NZD/500g) is a classic mens scent with a blast of spearmint and menthol, tempered with thyme. 
I haven't shown them here, but my own shopping list also consisted of Big Blue Bath Bomb ($6.90NZD), Outback Mate soap ($8.40NZD/100g) and Sea Vegetable soap ($8.10NZD/100g). There are some spoilt blokes around here!

How is your Christmas shopping going? Do you have any difficult-to-buy-for guys on your list?

ColourPop Super Shock Shadows - Sailor, Sunset Blvd, Muse, Far Side and Cusp Swatches & Review

Purchased by me/Contains affiliate links

ColourPop Super Shock Shadows - Sailor, Sunset Blvd, Muse, Far Side and Cusp Swatches & Review

Here's the next lot of goodies in my recent ColourPop bingeing! In case you haven't heard, they have free international shipping over $50USD until the end of the year, which is basically a death sentence to my wallet (their usually brutal shipping costs have kept me restrained for most of the year!). I picked up some of their new Ultra-Glitter eyeshadows in this order, along with Sunset Blvd from the KaePop (Karrueche Tran collaboration) last call and Muse from the Fall Edit.

ColourPop Super Shock Shadows - Sailor, Sunset Blvd, Muse, Far Side and Cusp Swatches & Review

Formula overview:
ColourPop's Super Shock Shadows have a malleable consistency like wet clay - should you press a finger into the eyeshadow you'll leave a hollow, it doesn't spring back or cling like a mousse, nor does it resist like a cream or powder. And of course, it's endlessly amusing to prod at! Because of the wetness of the formula, it is important to keep the lid tightly shut to prevent the product drying out. Even so, they have a fairly short official shelf life, with ColourPop advising that their eyeshadows will last three years unopened and a year after being opened. I've now had these for over a year and there appears to be no difference in quality than when I first got them, so it seems ColourPop are being pretty conservative.

There are eight different finishes in the SuperShock range: Ultra-Glitter, Glitter Sheer, Satin, Matte, Metallic, Ultra-Metallic, Pearlized and Pressed Pigments; I have a mixture of Ultra-Glitter and Pearlized shades to show you today. The Pearlized finish is very easy to work with - it's shimmery but without the glitter (and associated fallout) of the Metallic or Glitter finishes, while the Ultra-Glitters are exactly what they sound like, tending to have sheerer base colours, presumably to allow more of the glitter to show through.
Almost everything I have tried from ColourPop has had excellent colour payoff, but what really impresses me is how budge-proof they are. They take a few seconds to set and then remain crease proof for the duration of wear - long time readers will know I have ridiculously oily eyelids that laugh in the face of most primers and eyeshadows, so the lasting power on these blew me away. I even put Sequin (reviewed here) on the back of my hand and rubbed at it with my finger once it was set, using increasingly hard pressure, and it didn't smear or fade at all. Pretty much the only transfer was a small amount of glitter on my finger.

Packaging:
ColourPop's eyeshadows come boxed, although I confess to being a little annoyed that they don't have the name printed on them. I am a hoarder of packaging and have taken to storing some items in their boxes but because I can't readily identify the shade from the Super Shock Shadow's outer packaging it's a waste of time in this case.
My moaning aside, the eyeshadows are housed in a glossy white screwtop pot with a holographic logo. ColourPop advises that the jars need to be kept tightly shut to prevent the eyeshadow from drying out.

Sailor

ColourPop Super Shock Shadow - Sailor Swatches & Review

ColourPop Super Shock Shadow - Sailor Swatches & Review

ColourPop Super Shock Shadow - Sailor Swatches & Review

Sailor is described as a 'cool-toned taupe undertone with an opalescent green and teal duo chrome finish sprinkled with green, teal and silver glitter in an Ultra-Glitter finish'. It's a pale, warm tan shade - I'm not seeing any cool tones or taupe in the base colour at all. The colour pay off is semi-opaque, even and is able to be built up to near complete opacity. I think Sailor is my favourite in this order, I LOVE contrasting shimmer, especially in neutrals. It's going to be so versatile for so many makeup looks.

ColourPop Super Shock Shadow - Sailor Swatches & Review

ColourPop Super Shock Shadow - Sailor Swatches & Review

I used 3 on the outer half of the lid for this look, with Sailor on the inner half of the lid and inner corner, the LORAC Nude Skinny palette for blending and Essence Extreme Lasting Eye Pencil in Rockin' Taupe (reviewed here) on the lower lashline. The lashes are these ones from Born Pretty Store.

Sunset Blvd

ColourPop Super Shock Shadow - Sunset Blvd Swatches & Review

ColourPop Super Shock Shadow - Sunset Blvd Swatches & Review

Sunset Blvd (discontinued) is described as a 'warm golden bronze in a Pearlized finish'. It was part of the KaePop collaboration which was discontinued a little while ago. I'm glad I snapped this up before it disappeared (I ordered during the last call for the collection) as it's a very me shade and applies and blends really nicely. It's a fairly dupable colour though, so don't panic if you missed it! Gold from the first LORAC Pro palette is quite close.

Muse

ColourPop Super Shock Shadow - Muse Swatches & Review

ColourPop Super Shock Shadow - Muse Swatches & Review

Muse is described as a 'vibrant coppery rose in a Pearlized finish'. Look, I know that ColourPop put out a fair few rose-gold type eyeshadows, but I really do need all of them, okay? Just look at Muse! It's perfection. The ideal level of shimmer, no fallout and super easy to apply and blend. I know I'll get a lot of use out of this one.

ColourPop Super Shock Shadow - Muse Swatches & Review

ColourPop Super Shock Shadow - Muse Swatches & Review

I used Amaze on the inner half of the lid, Muse on the outer half of the lid, the LORAC Pro palette for blending and the lower lashline and Corvus Cosmetics Judgement on the inner corner. The lashes are Cala 1.
ColourPop Super Shock Shadow - Muse Swatches & Review

Far Side

ColourPop Super Shock Shadow - Far Side Swatches & Review

ColourPop Super Shock Shadow - Far Side Swatches & Review

Far Side is described as a 'deepened bronze undertone sprinkled with lots of gold glitter and subtle pink and silver highlights in an Ultra-Glitter finish'. I'm so stoked with my choice on this one! It reminds me of Australis Jay-Zed, which I loved the colour of but that formula was crease-city on me (read the review here). They're not dupes, but the base colour is similar, I reckon I could approximate a dupe by layering Far Side with one of ColourPop's gold sparkly shades over it. You can see that my blending game wasn't quite on point for the outer V in the look below but where I did blend properly, Far Side worked well and the glitter didn't fallout as much as I expected.

ColourPop Super Shock Shadow - Far Side Swatches & Review

ColourPop Super Shock Shadow - Far Side Swatches & Review

I've used Far Side on the outer half of the lid in this look, with Too Faced Blonde Ambition on the inner half of the lid, ColourPop Lunch Money highlighter on the inner corner and the LORAC Nude Skinny palette for everything else. The lashes are these ones from Born Pretty Store.

ColourPop Super Shock Shadow - Far Side Swatches & Review

Cusp

ColourPop Super Shock Shadow - Cusp Swatches & Review

Cusp is described as a 'bright emerald green infused with tons of turquoise, gold and silver glitter in an Ultra-Glitter finish'. This is such a beautiful shade of green and I love it, but I'm not going to lie, the base colour is quite sheer. It worked best for me when I patted it on with a finger, I was able to achieve even colour payoff and opacity that I was happy with in this way, and the edges were easy to blend out. Fallout wasn't an issue either.

ColourPop Super Shock Shadow - Cusp Swatches & Review

ColourPop Super Shock Shadow - Cusp Swatches & Review

Here I've used Cusp all over the lid, Lunch Money highlighter on the inner corner, Sunset Blvd on the lower lashline, MAC Humid on the crease and the LORAC Pro palette for the rest. The lashes are these ones from Born Pretty Store.

ColourPop Super Shock Shadow - Cusp Swatches & Review


What I liked:
  • Most shades were richly pigmented
  • Crease-resistant formula lasts all day on me
  • Easy to apply and blend
  • No fallout with the Pearlized shades or Cusp
What I didn't like:
  • Cusp has quite a sheer base colour
  • Some glitter fallout
Where to buy:
Have you tried any of these eyeshadows from ColourPop? Which is your favourite?

Lipstick Lover's Christmas Guide 2016

Provided for review/Purchased by me

Lipstick Lover's Christmas Guide 2016

It's time for another gift guide and once again, I'm bringing you another entry dedicated to the lipstick fanatics on your shopping list. Being one of those myself, I just can't squeeze all of these fab options into a general guide! Keep on scrolling for lippy suggestions for a variety of budgets and preferences and if you're looking for swatches or reviews for any of them, hit me up - I'm working my way through a bunch of them at the moment but it always helps to hear from you what you'd like to see first! 

Living Nature Colour Me Natural collection review

Living Nature have a couple of gift sets out for the holidays, each containing three of their lipsticks in complimentary tones. They're $75NZD each, so with their lipsticks usually being $33NZD each, you save $24 on the set. I love that they've split the sets into colour families to make it easier to pick out a selection of shades your gift recipient will like. If they prefer neutral lips, go with Colour Me Natural, red lovers will enjoy Colour Me Vibrant and pink lipstick fiends will love Colour Me Romantic.
I have Colour Me Natural which has three warm, earthy nudes: Precious, Sandstone and Warm Wood. The formula is really comfortable and flattering on the lips, Living Nature have the kind of lipstick formula that anyone can enjoy. I'll have a full review with swatches up ASAP!

Burt's Bees holiday gift packs review

These Burt's Bees gift sets are gorgeously packaged - I can't wait to hang the Kissable Colour set (RRP $20NZD) on my tree! I've already reviewed it here, so pop on over and take a peek if sheer, super moisturising tinted lip balms sound up your alley. The Delight Up Your Lips set (RRP $25NZD) is equally covetable and contains the Redwood Forest lip crayon (a flattering warm, medium reddy brown shade) and a pomegranate scented lip balm, complete with a makeup bag. 

Mellow Cosmetics lipsticks review

Kiwi brand Mellow Cosmetics have an expanding range at really decent prices (I'm currently eyeing up the Treasure Chest palette!) but so far I'm most impressed by their lip products! There's the Matte Liquid Lip Paints ($20NZD) and Ultra Matte Lipsticks ($18.18NZD) to choose from, each with a well-edited selection of classic and on-trend colours. There's sure to be something your gift recipient will like plus it feels great shopping from a local brand!

ColourPop lipsticks review

Ohhhh, ColourPop. I couldn't do a lipstick gift guide without mentioning them, could I? My love for their Lippie Stix knows no bounds (just ask my bank statement) and recently I've been foraying into their Ultra Matte, Metallic and Satin formulas too. While some of their holiday sets have sadly already sold out, there's still plenty to appease your favourite lipstick addict. I'm currently loving Knotty Ultra Matte ($6USD) from the holiday collection, Surprise Ultra Metallic ($6USD) from the Hello Kitty collaboration and the Persuede Me Lippie Stix set ($25USD) - you can catch my review of that last one here. ColourPop are offering free international shipping over $50USD at the moment too, so feel free to chuck a few things in for yourself to make up that threshold. I won't judge. But I will link you to my archive of ColourPop reviews to help you choose ;)

L'Oreal Color Riche lipsticks review

L'Oreal have been collaborating with their brand ambassadors again to release a set of gorgeous neutrals in their Color Riche lipstick range (RRP $23.99NZD each). There are four shades to cover an array of skintones, from the very cool, pale pink of Doutzen's Nude to the warmer pinky-corals of Julianne and Eva's Nudes, to the greige chicness of J Lo's Nude. 

YSL Rouge Pur Couture 01 lipstick review

As if YSL's regular Rouge Pur Couture packaging didn't set my heart fluttering already, they've released four shades from their permanent line in limited edition Sparkle Clash packaging. It's glitzy, it's glorious, it has stars engraved in the lipstick bullet - I'm fanning myself as we speak. The shades are available are 01 Le Rouge, 13 Le Orange (both reviewed here), 09 Rose Stiletto and 19 Fuchsia. Pictured is Le Rouge (RRP $65NZD), which is as classic as reds come and boasts a stellar formula. 

Notoriously Morbid Mystic Matte lipstick review

Christmas is the perfect opportunity to introduce someone to a new brand, so why not go indie? Notoriously Morbid's Mystic Mattes ($12USD) are one of my favourite liquid matte formulations and the shade selection is incredible. They're all hand formulated and made in West Virginia, USA, by the lovely Carrie. I've reviewed heeeeeeaaaaaaps of them, so check out the archive to check a bunch of them out.

If you're wanting to grab something that's a bit more accessible locally, Collection Cosmetics Lasting Colour lipsticks (RRP $16.50NZD) are available at Countdown supermarkets nationwide - perfect for chucking in your trolley as a last minute gift (We've all been there, right?!). I'm enjoying the shades Pretty in Peach and Red Carpet at the moment.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream vault lipstick review

And when you don't know which lip colours they like best, just buy all of them. The NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Vault (RRP $89NZD) covers just about every option with all thirty-six shades of their Soft Matte Lip Creams. There's a Liquid Suede vault out for the same price too, which is all too tempting for people with poor restraint issues. Not naming names. 


Do you have any lipstick fiends in your life to shop for? What are you picking up for them this year?

MAC MONDAY | A Novel Romance Lipsticks - A Novel Romance, Yield to Love, Good Kisser, Hearts Aflame and Lingering Kiss Swatches & Review

For once I'm showing you something on MAC Monday that I bought at the actual time of launch - four of the six lippies from the 2014 A Novel Romance collection! I swatched and edited them at the time and had every intention of posting while they were still available and then I went and changed my whole swatching setup and photo style and suddenly couldn't bear to put up my ugly old swatches! LOL! Shortly after that, I won a giveaway in a makeup group I'm in which included A Novel Romance, a shade I had I had initially skipped over. Two years and a whole lot of blogging-catchup later, here we are. Phew! 

The Novel Romance collection featured stunning visuals recreating old-fashioned romance novel covers complete with swooning leading ladies and open-shirted hunky men. The names were just as romantic and alongside the lipsticks, there were eyeshadow quads, Lipglasses, Electric Cool eyeshadows, nail lacquer, blushes and eye pencils. I stuck to the lipsticks, though, cause that's my jam. 

MAC MONDAY | A Novel Romance Lipsticks - A Novel Romance, Yield to Love, Good Kisser, Hearts Aflame and Lingering Kiss Swatches & Review

Formula overview:
Three of the six shades in A Novel Romance are Mattes, which I am always down for, while two are Cremesheens, another formula I generally enjoy. The sixth shade, Myself, which I don't have, is a Lustre and those can be more hit or miss. Mattes are richly pigmented and have a smooth, velvety texture which I don't typically find drying, while Cremesheens are semi-opaque, glossy and sometimes hydrating. 
MAC lipsticks have a vanilla scent.

A Novel Romance

MAC MONDAY | A Novel Romance - A Novel Romance Lipstick Swatches & Review

MAC MONDAY | A Novel Romance - A Novel Romance Lipstick Swatches & Review

MAC MONDAY | A Novel Romance - A Novel Romance Lipstick Swatches & Review

A Novel Romance is described as a 'light cool dusty pink' in a Cremesheen finish. As I mentioned, I skipped over this shade when the collection launched as cool baby pink shades aren't something I'd usually reach for but in recent years I have definitely grown to enjoy them more. There's something so youthful and fun about them! A Novel Romance applies evenly with mostly opaque colour payoff. I noticed it settling into fine lines, particularly when my lips were in a drier state and it wore for four hours without being drying.

Yield to Love

MAC MONDAY | A Novel Romance - Yield to Love Lipstick Swatches & Review

MAC MONDAY | A Novel Romance - Yield to Love Lipstick Swatches & Review

MAC MONDAY | A Novel Romance - Yield to Love Lipstick Swatches & Review

Yield to Love is described as 'mid-tone rose' in a Cremesheen finish and was an online exclusive. I'm just going to admit that I was madly in collector mode when this collection launched and the words 'online exclusive' were basically catnip to me. But Yield To Love wound up being one of my favourites from the collection and was even a brief contender for my wedding day lipstick (and was in the running even longer for my mum's 'mother of the bride' makeup). It's a lovely shade of plummy-rose with subtle cool tones that don't cause it to read as strongly cool on my skintone. It wears for close to five hours on me and is not drying.

MAC MONDAY | A Novel Romance - Yield to Love Lipstick Swatches & Review

Good Kisser

MAC MONDAY | A Novel Romance - Good Kisser Lipstick Swatches & Review

MAC MONDAY | A Novel Romance - Good Kisser Lipstick Swatches & Review

MAC MONDAY | A Novel Romance - Good Kisser Lipstick Swatches & Review

Good Kisser is described as a 'mid-tone fuchsia' with a Matte finish. This is such a fun shade of pink and warmer than some of the other mid-tone pinks in my collection. Application was excellent and it wore well for five hours, after which it was mostly a stain. No drying issues to report here either.

Hearts Aflame

MAC MONDAY | A Novel Romance - Hearts Aflame Lipstick Swatches & Review

MAC MONDAY | A Novel Romance - Hearts Aflame Lipstick Swatches & Review

MAC MONDAY | A Novel Romance - Hearts Aflame Lipstick Swatches & Review

Hearts Aflame is described as a 'mid-tone brick red' with a Matte finish. It's warmer and browner than of my other favourite dark reds from MAC (Diva, Studded Kiss, Sin) and I'm really digging it. It wore for five hours and wasn't drying.

MAC MONDAY | A Novel Romance - Hearts Aflame Lipstick Swatches & Review

Lingering Kiss

MAC MONDAY | A Novel Romance - Lingering Kiss Lipstick Swatches & Review

MAC MONDAY | A Novel Romance - Lingering Kiss Lipstick Swatches & Review

MAC MONDAY | A Novel Romance - Lingering Kiss Lipstick Swatches & Review

Lingering Kiss is described as a 'deep plum red' in a Matte finish. While I love the vampy shade, application definitely could have been better with this one! It clung to imperfections and was slightly patchy as a result. I usually use a lip liner with it to boost opacity. It wears for five hours without beign drying.

MAC MONDAY | A Novel Romance - Lingering Kiss Lipstick Swatches & Review


What I liked:
  • Most shades had excellent colour payoff
  • None of them dried out my lips or feathered
  • Smooth, creamy texture
  • Wear time was between four and five hours
What I didn't like:
  • Lingering Kiss clung to imperfections and was a bit patchy
  • A Novel Romance settled into fine lines
