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?

I received my box this morning and without further-a-do, here’s what’s inside!

BH Cosmetics: Carli Bybel Palette

Hi fraands!

Today’s post is all about the super-hyped Carli Bybel palette from BH Cosmetics! Now, I know I am a bit late to the party with this one but I honestly had no intention of ever buying this palette until I was scrolling down the BH Cosmetics site for brushes and saw that they were in stock. So I bought 2. As one does.

Carli Bybel, a popular youtuber, created this palette intending for it to suit a majority of skin tones and at a low price. BH Cosmetics are known for their affordable yet good quality products, so I decided to give this one a go!

Priceline 40% Off Sale: WishList and Recommendations

HELLO FRIENDS,

The ever-so-exciting Priceline 40% off Cosmetics sale is just around the corner! The bi-annual event lasts 2 days and usual happen around April and November of each year. This time, instead of showing you all a haul, I thought I’d share my thoughts on what I would get if I were you. (I’m on a “not-so-no-buy-but-trying-to-limit-spending-buy”). I have around $11 in voucher form and will only allow myself another $9 to make it $20 to spend. SO, with my $20, WHAT WOULD I BUY!?

Mecca Cosmetica: To Save Face SPF 50+ Superscreen

Hi there!

Welcome to my blog post about sunscreen. Yes, sunscreen. Sounds boring right? NOT THIS ONE! (Well at least I think so.)

IMG_4015.JPG

Mecca Cosmetica (our Australian version of Sephora… even though we have Sephora) have an amazing range of beauty and skincare products. They have everything from nailpolish and lashes to hand cream and eye cream. In one of the latest Beauty Loop (rewards/loyalty) boxes, we received a sample of the Mecca Cosmetica To Save Face SPF 50+ Superscreen. I honestly was disappointed when I saw this, as sunscreen is usually thick and white which makes my face look grey. BUT then I tried it and was super surprised!
