Guess what iiiiii have! The gorgeous limited edition Urban Decay Alice Through the Looking Glass Palette! I purchased this baby off Mecca (Aussie Sephora – even though we have Sephora) last Tuesday at 12:01 am, when it came out, but there was a weird issue with shipping and it arrived a week later…. Oh well, IT’S IN MY HANDS NOW! I’ll be showing you guys some swatches and my thoughts on the colours and some dupes/similar shades!
I’ve had a hugely EVENTful week with a whole bunch of new things to try and experiences to tell you all about. I have to say, the one that stood out the most was the Bellabox x Benefit Masterclass which took place at the Bellabox HQ in Melbourne CBD!
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!
When I was younger, I would never have guessed that eyebrows would become such an important part of my life. I never knew they needed to be “on point” or “fleeking”. I just knew I had to have 2 of them!
My usual routine is to get them threaded and then keep them clean by tweezing any stray hairs. I never pluck from the top because I’m afraid of over-plucking so I need a threading ever month or so.
Embarrassingly enough, my eyes tear up when I get my threading done. When my right eyebrow is getting done, my right eye leaks. I don’t know why and no I am not crying!!
So what have I been liking lately?
Okay so I know I have only had these for a week but these are great. I have horrendously dry skin and my foundation can look dry and stick to the patches on my face. A spritz of this before foundation or primer softens and nourishes my skin and a spray after my foundation leaves my face feeling and looking moist.

So, you’ve probably seen this mascara pop up on my instagram every second post because well, I LOVE IT!
I’ve had a little bit over 3 months of use of this mascara and I think it’s time to write a review.
How much is it and where can i buy it from?
I purchased mine form Mecca for $27. Whilst $27 is above my usual spend for mascaras which is usually $10 (when Maybelline goes on sale), I thought I may as well give this one a go seeing as though it promised to “adds volume and length to your lashes whilst nourishing and conditioning them”.
Why did I buy it?
I have the problem of picking off mascara and as a result, my lashes have become stubby and theres less of them. I wanted to try a nourishing mascara as mascara is an everyday must-wear for me.
I never thought I’d see the day I wrote a positive review about an eye shadow palette full of neon colours! The Urban Decay Electric palette had been on my want list for months before I received it in a swap and well, let’s just say I’ve been wearing colour a lot more since! Continue reading
