Same makeup blog, change of review method

I think we all know, or at least I hope you know, I love makeup and fashion.  Although, I have a tendency to be a bit too wordy - I can thank my education for that.  In order to grasp your attention, while still trying to convey my point(s) of view, I'm going to write shorter reviews packed with as much pertinent information as possible.  My photos will also help to do some of the talking.  Also, I'll be maintaining the "Bagful Breakdown" rating system; I think it helps to tie my reviews up with a pretty bow. Without further ado, let the cheesiness commence with my new blogging topics:

  • Eyes to Mesmerise - reviews about eye looks, products and everything in between
  • A peek at the cheeks - write ups about blush, bronzer and highlighter
  • A glimpse at the lips - well, we all have them and I think I have a pretty pout, so why not?

Every now and then I'll write a lengthy review about new launches featuring several products I've purchased and tried out.

The weekly nail review will remain as is.  I heart French Pink in Melbourne's CBD - it helps that Mira and Janice are so sweet and fun to sit down with for a few minutes every Saturday.  And their skills are out of this world (the perfectionist in me treasures their ability to paint nails really well).

I might talk about my brow gal, Romina, from time to time.  Romina can be found in South Yarra, just a few stops away from Chapel Street.  Make sure you book in before going to see her, because her schedule can fill up pretty quickly.

Last, I will try to be as fair and balanced with all of my reviews.  I am not paid or sponsored for most of what you see on my blog.  Recently, Beauty Directory sent me a few things to try and review - however, just because it's free, doesn't make it good or bad for that matter.  I will always disclose if/when something has been gifted in exchange for my opinions.

And, what about fashion?

For me Makeup is primary and fashion is secondary.  I think it's much cheaper to buy a tube of lipstick over an expensive pair of shoes or purse any day of the week.  With that said, I don't think there's any harm in showcasing something I'm in love with, like this Marc Jacobs jewellery set for example. My fashion entries will be sprinkled throughout this blog too.

That's about it for now.  I hope you continue to visit Bagful of Notions; I'm having a lot of fun and I hope you are too.

I have an open door policy, always feel free to drop me a line and let me know what you think.

Spammers beware, I am not interested in what you have to say.
