BYS Think Pink Eyeshadow Palette – an Anastasia Beverly Hills Dupe?

BYS has been KILLIN IT lately with their new releases and ranges being always on trend and at an amazingly affordable price. Their eyeshadow palettes have been immensely popular and seen as dupes for popular palettes, such as the Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette, Urban Decay Naked Palette etc

Now this one here is the BYS Think Pink palette and is an 8 shadow palette in a plastic case, not 16 and in a tin like the ones you’ve probably seen. Aaaaaaaaaaaand its RRP is only $6.95 – madness!

I had high expectations whilst opening this box up! I had a think about what kind of items would be included in a Spring themed box and my mind gravitated towards pink lipsticks, floral scented perfume and oils – natural products. Continue reading

3INA Haul

Hey guys!

I’m back with a 3INA (pronounced “mina”) haul! This brand is new to Aus and has been popping up in their own stores all over the place. I took a stroll around their perfectly colour-coordinated store the other day and picked up a few things that I thought you guys would be interested in!

ABOUT 3INA
Firstly, I want to talk about the brand and the stores themselves. 3INA is all about “freedom of expression” and stocks amazingly bright coloured mascara, polish and lipstick. All their products are under AUD$30 and are cruelty free. Most are vegan, with only the lipsticks containing beeswax.

3INA aren’t available in any other store other than their own stand-alone stores. These stores are completely white and all the products are broken up into categories – eyeshadows, blush, foundation etc, and then broken up once again according to colour. It is so, so satisfying to walk in and see everything so organised. It also makes it easier to shop. If one lipstick colour doesn’t work for you, it’s easier to find a shade lighter or darker. The atmosphere in there is great to shop in as well. I went in with friends who are very un-makeup-y and even they mentioned how much they enjoyed the space. There is no loud, pumping music like in Sephora or butt loads of people like in Mecca. Also, the prices are so reasonable!

bellabox: June 2016 Unboxing/Review

Hai friends!

Guess what arrived!? My June bellabox! If you have me on snapchat (bymeneka) then you would have seen me unbox this baby liiive! And if you missed it – just keep reading.

With June being the first month of winter, this month’s theme was “Winter Switch”. Even before opening the box, I predicted that this box would be full of skin care because Winter dries out the skin like crazy!

I loved this month’s box! There were no coloured complexion products or any flimsy sachets that would never get used. All the brands included are of top quality and are things I will actually use!

So what’s in the box?
