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.)

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!

The many uses of Coconut Oil

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!

bellabox: February 2016 Unboxing/ Review

Hi there!

So, as you may have noticed, the number of subscription box services have multiplied like crazy over the past couple of years. They have a box for EVERYTHING! But of course, I like me some beauty boxes.

I was lucky enough to receive a beauty box from Australian Subscription Box service Bellabox! Bellabox was one of the first sub boxes on the market and have ties with some amazing brands.

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

Never buy things full price!

Now I don’t know if it’s my inner cheap curry instinct or my bank balance, but I barely ever buy things full price.

I mean why should I when there are such things as SALES! Continue reading

Ottoman3 Brow Threading Service and Product Review

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!!

Monthly Round Up: September Favourites!

So what have I been liking lately?

  MAC Fix+

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. [stay tuned for a full review and uses blog post coming up]
