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?

Hi again!

Yes my posts are becoming more regular – yay! So recently, I’ve been trying to revert back to natural products or products with simple ingredients. The product I’ve been using the most is COCONUT OIL! I know there’s been a lot of hype around coconut oil recently, so I’ve created a list of uses – and there are A LOT!

Frankie and Lou Essential Facial Oil 

Want to wake up with baby soft, hydrated skin? You need to try Frankie Lou essential facial oil.

 As you’ve probably heard me complain about by now, I have ridiculously dry skin. So, so dry that if I don’t moisturise, my face feels like it’s about to crack. Whilst moisturiser and night creams help, nothing is as good as a facial oil. I know the thought of putting oil on your face can sound quite daunting but just hear me out! Continue reading

The Best Of 2015

2015 has definitely been the year in which I REALLY got into makeup and beauty. I went from learning how to use orange skin correcter to recolour my pigmentation to being able to know exactly what product you were talking about when you mentioned just a little bit about it. Makeup has gone from a hobby to a full fledged addiction!

Here’s what I discovered this year!
