GILDED CAGE UNLEASHED LIPSTICKS || 112 BOLD CORAL


Gilded Cage is a brand I've always heard about but never tried (but always wanted to). So when I had the opportunity to try one of their Unleashed lipsticks in shade 112 Bold Coral*, I jumped at it. So first let's see what Gilded Cage claim:

"Unleash the power of 6 moisture rich natural actives in a soft, silky full colour release creamy texture. A unique combination of synthetic waxes and gelly base create the ideal silky texture that glides into a weightless thin film of pure colour and extreme comfort. 

Achieve creamy medium to high coverage shine that is smooth, weightless and soft.
Power Technology

Unleashed lipstick is formulated with wild mango butter, water lily and orchid flower extracts and natural collagen boosters. A new unique sugar derived molecule works to create a 3-D structure to firm and lock in moisture over time for a smoother softer lip surface."



Shade 112 Bold Coral is very....bold! It's a vibrant orange-coral, perfect for Spring! When I opened up the tube I literally said out loud "woah!". I was quite surprised when swatching with how pigmented it was as the formula is quite thin, just as Gilded Cage claim.

The packaging is gorgeous. You can't quite beat matte black & gold metallic writing (ok except for YSL...YSL own packaging). It also has a quite satisfying "click" when you close the lid. No chance of it accidentally coming off on your purse.


Bold Coral glides on really smooth and despite the thin formula, it builds up very easy. As you can see they're quite glossy and feel comfortable on the lips. Wear time before needing reapplication is approximately 4 hours however I find you are left with a stain which helps hide the fact you need to reapply!

Gilded Cage Unleashed Lipsticks retail for AUD$40 and can be bought from Gilded Cage online.

WEEKEND BITS & PIECES || VOL. 1



TOO FACED CHOCOLATE BON BONS PALETTE
I don't think I will ever get tired of using this palette. It just has all of the shades I'm currently loving! I have done a full review including swatches so click here if you'd like to check it out.

MAYBELLINE HYPER SHARP WING LINER
I've been really into wearing no liner lately, however I whipped out my favourite liquid liner and fell back in love with it! It's just such an easy liner to use.

MAX FACEFINITY PRIMER
If you're looking for a new primer from the drugstore that locks your foundation in, look no further than this one! The best affordable primer I have tried to keep my oils at bay.

HOURGLASS AMBIENT LIGHTING BRONZER
Still my favourite bronzer. Gives my skin such a lovely glow & bronze. And the packaging. Slay.

MAX FACTOR EXCESS SHIMMER IN COPPER
I bough this cream shadow the other week when Good Price Pharmacy was having a massive Max Factor sale and despite it being called "Copper" it's actually more of a silvery taupe, really pretty! 

RIMMEL GOOD TO GLOW LIQUID HIGHLIGHTER*
I've been adding this liquid highlighter to my liquid foundation to give my skin a glow and it does a lovely job, just gotta make sure I don't add too much like one time I did and I think they could see my beaming face from the moon!

NYX TAUPE BLUSH
Definitely a cult product from NYX which many women use as a contour rather than a blush. 

NARS ORGASM BLUSH
I would say this blush was the first one I truly fell in love with. Every Mecca I walked past, I would swatch it and sigh...then on our honeymoon, we traveled to Hawaii where I experienced my first Sephora. You best believe Orgasm was the first thing in my basket!

What did you wear & love on the weekend?

5 MUST HAVE NAIL POLISHES FOR SPRING


Hi, my name is Kahlia and I love nail polish....like a lot. I definitely own a fair more than the average woman would use in her lifetime but like I always say, some people collect handbags, I collect nail polish.

Spring is upon us (YAY!) so I thought I would share my must haves, my ride or die nail polishes I love to pull out during one of my favourite times of the year.

REVIEW || NYX LIP LINGERIE LIQUID LIPSTICKS


The Lip Lingerie Liquid Lipsticks have been greatly anticipated here in Australia. They finally were released in July when Priceline started selling NYX (best thing ever, no more low stocked, messy Target stands).
