Review: Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture Palette


For the past week the whole beauty community has been in an uproar over this palette. There have been mixed reviews, talk of inconsistent palettes and that one video where a eyeshadow was panned in a single use. The palette in question is the new Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture Palette, and I thought as I have been testing out the palette now this week, I would add my thoughts to the interweb.

Review: Opallac Gel Polish Kit


I am someone that always loves getting my nails done as often as I can.

Review: ANTHEIA Fake Tan Remover KIT


If you are an avid self tanner like I am, I am sure you have at least once experienced a time when your fake tan developed too dark or uneven, or became old and patchy.

Review: Milani Cosmetics

Now I am here to share the newest additions to my Milani collection, and my thoughts on each!

Review: Klara Cosmetics

I wanted to share my thoughts on several of their products and basically help spread the word of this up and coming brand!

Review: Remington Smooth and Silky Ultimate Cordless Wet/Dry Epilator


Ever since my teen years, I have dabbled with almost every single hair removal method out there, in the quest to rid myself of unwanted body hair. I have tried waxing, shaving, sugaring, sand-papering, plucking, depilatory creams, threading, and other crazy methods, but hadn't tried epilating until lately. I recently got my hands on the new Remington Smooth and Silky Ultimate Cordless Wet/Dry Epilator and wanted to share my thoughts (from one hairy person to another!)

Review and Comparison: Sleek Solstice vs Cleopatra's Kiss Highlighting Palettes


I am sure you all know own, or have at least heard about Sleek's highlighting palettes. After all, they are one of the best affordable highlighting palettes available on the market. However, I noticed when I was looking for reviews comparing the Solstice and the Cleopatra's Kiss palettes, I couldn't really find anything. So, now that I own both, I thought that I would create the post that I wished were available when I was looking to purchase my first Sleek highlighting palette.

Review: Rosehip PLUS Skincare


Rosehip Oil is one of my favourite skincare ingredients for its ability to nourish and renew skin.

Review and Comparison: Garbo & Kelly Millennial Girl and Instagirl Contour Kits


Garbo & Kelly have definitely been rocking my world lately; from their brow products, to their highlighters to their eyeshadows, this up and coming Australian cosmetics brand sure know their stuff!

Rimmel has certainly been launching some innovative makeup lately, and I am loving their latest offerings. Today I wanted to talk about their Brow This Way Filling Powder and Volume Shake Mascara; two products that have really shaken (pun intended) up the beauty world!

Review: Sunescape Tanning


I am someone that personally feels more comfortable and more confident when rocking a golden glow, than when I am my natural pale self. It is of course much safer and healthier to get your tan from a bottle than the sun, so naturally I have tried out a LOT of tanning brands to find products that work for me. Lately I have been trying out Sunescape's Tanning range, and I wanted to share my thoughts!

Review and Swatches: Garbo & Kelly Overnight Sensation Eyeshadow Palette


Garbo & Kelly are a brand that are relatively unknown in the beauty world, and are definitely one of those hidden gems that I can't seem to stop talking about.

Today I am here to talk about their Overnight Sensation Eyeshadow Palette, and why it is a mainstay in my collection!

Underrated Products from Laura Mercier


I know that Laura Mercier is a well known brand in the beauty world; a cult favourite by many bloggers alike. However, it seems that the setting powders, primers and highlighters get all the love in the Laura Mercier world, and no-one seems to talk about the rest of Laura Mercier's range. I have no idea why that is, as I have recently discovered several products that are rarely talked about, that deserve to be put into the spotlight!

Review: Go-To Skincare


Go-To Skincare is a brand that has been on my radar for quite a long time, so when I was lucky enough to get my hands on a whole bunch of their stuff (Thanks, Go-To!) I was super excited and knew I had to share my thoughts with you guys now that I have had a chance to fully try them out.

Review + Discount: Dessata Detangling Brush


One thing I don't seem to feature very often on this blog is hair brushes, and I'm not sure why. The right hair brush can make the biggest difference in detangling knots, creating shine, and maintaining hair health. So, today I am sharing my thoughts on a brush I was recently sent; Dessata's Maxi Detangling Brush, and why I am loving it.

Review and Swatches: Zoeva Pink Spectrum Blush Palette

At Home Pampering with APSU's Funaya Body Range


There is nothing more relaxing in life than heading to a spa retreat for the day and being pampered from head to toe. Unfortunately though, most people can't find the time or money to dedicate to a whole day at the spa, so a DIY option is the next best option. The upside to at-home pampering is you can do it any time that works for you. Got a spare twenty minutes? Lock yourself in the bathroom and run a bath, and grab some luxurious bath goodies like those from APSU's Funaya range to pamper yourself with.

Review: The Ordinary High-Adherence Silicone Primer vs High-Spreadability Fluid Primer



I haven't had the best success with primers in the past (I never noticed them doing anything), so when I heard all the rave reviews about the The Ordinary Primers, I was highly sceptical. I mean, primers that actually help my makeup stay on, and at an affordable price, even in Australia?! Keep reading to find out the difference between these primers, and see if they worked for me.

Who doesn't want brighter, healthier, more even-toned skin?! Elucent's Whitening range is infused with a combination of ingredients that work together to help maximize the brightness of the skin.

Print Photos Straight From Instagram With Printiki!


As I am about to move into my first home (!), I have been thinking about how I am going to decorate it. I thought about getting some photos printed to put into frames, and to display around the home. As fate would have it, I was recently approached by Printiki, a brand I had never heard of but was instantly curious about. Printiki offers a service whereby you can print directly from your phone and have the prints sent straight to your door; I mean how cool is that?!

Review: Intense Formulas Face Serum


Face serums are one of my favourite skincare items, for their ability to provide nutrition and potent antioxidants to the skin. I am also all about 'that glow', and find that serums and oils really give a natural, healthy glow to the skin. One serum that I have really been loving lately is Intense Formulas' Face Serum, and today I thought I would share why I have been keeping this serum front and centre in my skincare cabinet.

Review and Swatches: PÜR Cosmetics Love Your Selfie 2 Palette

PÜR Cosmetics is a makeup brand that has been at the top of my radar lately, due to their formulations, gorgeous packaging, and the way they look (and last!) on my skin.

Review: Soleil Toujours Suncare


Sunscreen is the single most important skincare item in your bathroom cabinet when it comes to skin health and anti-ageing, and of course protecting you from the harsh rays of the sun. I am always excited to test out new sunscreens, so when I received a package from Soleil Toujours, I couldn't wait to tear it open and put their products to the test!

Review and Swatches: Zoeva Matte Eyeshadow Palette


Being more of a shimmer gal, I never thought I would get excited about an all-matte eyeshadow palette, that is, until I received the Zoeva Matte Eyeshadow Palette.

Mothers Day Gift Guide 2017


With Mothers Day quickly approaching, I know many people (including myself) are starting to think about possible gifts for the favourite lady in their life. I thought I would compile a short list of gift ideas any mother would love to receive this Mothers Day, and post them now so you have plenty of time to buy them and have them shipped in time for the big day!
