FOTD with my new Hourglass and RBR purchases

I bought a few new things from Zuneta recently and today was my first opportunity to have a play. I don't seem to have been experimenting very much with makeup recently. I think it's partly because I'm still restricting myself to using up the items I talked about in this post but also because I don't have as much time to myself. I decided that buying something colourful might help me out of this rut and Rouge Bunny Rouge Mysterious Tinamou eyeshadow is certainly outside my usual taupe comfort zone.

Today, I used Mysterious Tinamou as an accent colour alongside some favourite neutrals. I also gave my Hourglass Illume compact (Sunset) its first outing. Both items are pictured below alongside the other colour products that I used.

Scent of the Day 
Aftelier Perfume Patchouli Spice Body Oil & Hair Elixir - I applied this to my hair today and it smells beautiful, I get little wafts of scent as my hair moves. As you can probably see, I've decided to let my roots come through in a bid to see if I can embrace the grey. They do need taming though as hence the need for bit of hair oil.

Disclosure: I have labelled press samples with an asterisk, all the other items were purchased or won by me. 


  1. Beautiful! I love the hint of colour with Mysterious Tinamou, such a gorgeous colour.

    I took advantage of the discount on the new RBR website and bought the Delicate Hummingbird e/s (finally) and the new Umber Firefinch and Bohemian Waxwing e/s.

    1. Hi Meeta! Delicate Hummingbird and Umber Firefinch are two of my RBR favourites, I hope you get on well with them.

  2. My first Hourglass lipstick has arrived only today. so far I'm very impressed!

  3. Gorgeous colours - your eyes look so pretty in these shades.

  4. RBR Gracious Arasari is a pretty color. I love the idea that you're wearing it on the lash line. I like the pckaging of that hourglass product, looks so sleek :)

    1. I love the Hourglass packaging, the swivel mirror lid is quite nifty.

  5. The look is lovely! The subtle use of MT is so pretty. Can't wait to see your next bolder adventure!

    1. Thanks PP. I had a play with MT over a dark base whilst messing about with some Halloween makeup and now really want to have a go using it for a dark smoky eye.

  6. waaaaaa I want Mysterious Tinamou so much more now! You look stunning, I'm loving these deeper blue accents on you.
    You are also making me rethink the Hourglass Illume Creme as I assumed it would be too dark but it looks lovely on you, I can see some of the money I am meant to be saving for other peoples christmas presents going towards a Zuneta order... ;) xx

    1. The bronzer in the Sunset palette takes a fair bit of working in to stop it looking too orange. I think you're right to hesitate as it could be too dark, it's probably worth having a play in SpaceNK first. In a perfect world, I would have had the blusher from Sunset and the bronzer from the lighter Illume palette (I seem to think that's the combination Gina Brooke used on me).

      I had a play with MT over a dark base over the weekend and love how it looked. I'm so pleased I went for something colourful for a change :) xx
