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!
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!
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?
So, I usually film my unboxings but I refuse to get out of my monkey onesie and don’t think it’s “socially acceptable” to post a video of myself in it… so blog post it is!
I’ve spoken about The Parcel sooo many times before but as a quick summary – curated by magazine Marie Claire, quarterly & pretty deece!
I received my box this morning and without further-a-do, here’s what’s inside!
So today I’ll be giving you my honest opinion on the highly sought after Too Faced Sweet Peach palette which may or may not make you feel better if you missed out!
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!
