I know I have been gone for AGES, but I decided to take some time out and recharge and regroup coming back and feel like I have my mojo back again!

Here is my latest video, sharing some of my favourite Summer Time essentials products. I will be back with a new video each week for now but promise to keep you all updated as things change in the world of Starling Bright and all things Makeup, Mac and Bright Colours.

Feel free to share any feedback, comments or requests.

Peace and Love,

Review - Born To Balm Killa Vanilla

Lip Balm is an essential part of anyone's beauty routine, to keep those lips baby smooth. I often have one in my handbag, a couple in my beauty draws and scattered around my bathroom. I was happy for fellow blogger Sophie from Born To Buy when she released her own line of lip balms because really who knows beauty products better than beauty bloggers? I wanted to share my thoughts on one of the lip balms from that line, Killa Vanilla.

MAY IS MAC MONTH - Chromagraphic Pencils Hi Def Cyan & Process Magenta

Chromagraphic Pencils are fabulous and great products to have in your stash to do a number of things. I was happy to see these Pro items being released again for everyone to have access to them. They are often promoted in collections that are bright and vibrant and fun like the Art Of The Eye Collection.

Chromagraphic Pencils are permanent items at Pro, anyone can purchase them but they are not sold at regular counters and online unless they are released with a collection. They are great products to line lips, line eyes, draw and create whatever you think up. They are very VERY pigmented so its easy to see why they are pro items. I don't find them drying or pulling and dragging on the skin. I rarely find the need to go over any line that I draw with these pencils, but I do keep these sanitized and sharpen every pencil after every time I use them.

Mac Art Of The Eye Collection is my kind of collection, simply because it is filled with fun and bright eye products. I decided to skip the Pink and Orange eyeshadows (because I have ALOT of pink and orange eyeshadows especially recently with Fashion Sets and Daydreaming) and purchased the 3 gorgeous blues and greens. I do have to say that these do have OUT THERE names!

24 May 2013


Mac are well known for collaborating with icons from all different walks of life to bring the consumers rare and one off products that send everyone into a CRAZY spin fighting to purchase the items. This happened again with the release of RiRi Woo resulting in USA selling out in 3 hours! This lipstick is still available in Australia so I thought it was time for a quick comparison post on RiRi Woo vs Ruby Woo.

Are you ready for the big Mac summer collection (well summer for USA and winter for Australia). I love that Mac are bringing out some new colour collections with fun brights again and NEW BRUSHES!! I know for sure I have my eyes on that new 159 Brush to add to my collection and new Mineralize Rich lipstick colour Midnight Mambo seeings I love the formula so much. Those that missed out on Fashion Sets Lip Pencils will be happy to see they are being re-promoted and Tropica sounds DIVINE! I am not a massive fan of mineralize eyeshadows and blushes so will probably skip those even though they look pretty.
