Ciate Chalkboard Manicure kit review and demo

The Ciate Chalkboard Manicure set is an interesting innovation - it includes a matte black base polish, matte top coat, and 4 coloured pens (similar to felt tip pens) to create all kinds of artwork on your nails!

Of course this was too cute an idea for me to pass up, so I snapped it up the very first day it was available. Do I love it? I love it the way my fiance loves me - I'm difficult, irritating, and downright disastrous at times, but much too adorable to give up on!

Interested? Read on after the jump!

Skin Physics Pore Away Mattifying Base Primer

Skin Physics is an Australian skincare and beauty brand which, although relatively new (established in 2009), has a small but interesting range of products. They have fun electronics like a photon LED skin rejuvenation device and a well-priced sonic cleansing brush for face and body, an unusual"facial sculpting gel" called Dragon's Blood (eep!) and skincare ranges called Cellugen and Pore Away. I haven't tried any of their other products yet, but I was lucky enough to win their Pore Away Mattifying Base Primer through a Facebook promotion, and I really like it!

Easy Peasy Smoky Eyes!

I love makeup, skincare and everything girly, so the hardest part of writing my first blog article is, what topic do I choose? I finally hit on the one thing I’m known for – smoky eyes. I have small eyes, which I hate, so I try every trick in the book to make them look bigger and more dramatic. I wear smoky eyes every day, and do my makeup on the train (it buys me an extra 30 minutes sleep!). Because I’m travelling and don’t want to take a brush roll and 300 shadows with me every day, I had to choose my “bare essentials” and trim my technique as well. It showed me how little I need, and how little effort it is, to get the smoky look I love. So without further ado, let me share my technique with you for easy-peasy smoky eyes!
