Beauty Review: Meet Matt(e) Hughes – Trustworthy

Every time I walk pass a display of ‘theBalm’ products, the main thing that catches my eye is their kitschy retro packaging. But I’ve never purchased any of their products until now… (jeng jeng jeng..) theBalm claims that the Meet Matt(e) Hughes range has a long-wearing formula that has a comfortable matte finish with no commitment issues. Their products are also paraben and cruelty free. Since I didn’t have a colour similar to this one, I bought the Meet Matt(e) Hughes Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick in the shade Trustworthy. It is a warm brown red-ish nude and I absolutely love the colour! The formula is lightweight and has a vanilla mint scent. Upon applying, you can feel the tingle of the mint on your lips. Initially, I found the tingly sensation a bit off-putting but have since grown accustomed to it. The colour payoff is great and true to the tube; just a few swipes and you have an opaque finish. It dries and sets quickly which makes it a great choice even when you’re in …

Beauty Review: Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask

Bite Beauty is a Toronto based beauty company solely focusing on lips. They manufacture without compromise by sourcing food-grade, or good-enough-to-eat ingredients, and producing each and every product in house —proving there’s no sacrifice in quality for products sourced from nature. After swatching a sample of the Agave Lip Mask at Plush Cosmetics, a cosmetics boutique store, I decided to invest in the Agave Lip Mask in clear. I honestly did not know that it came in other colours too. Regardless, I’m happy with what I got. My favourite part of this product (as always) is the fact that it’s formulated without Parabens, Sulfates and Phthalates. The Agave Lip Mask is a soothing, leave-on lip mask that replenishes moisture. Bite Beauty claims that this innovative formula smooths, nourishes, and hydrates lips with a bioactive blend of organic agave nectar, jojoba oil, vanilla co2 extract, and triple the amount of the antioxidant trans-resveratrol found in red wine. So I decided to put it to the test… My first impression of the product was that the consistency is very …

Beauty Review: Custom Lipsticks @The Lip Lab Perth

Ever since I walked pass Lip Lab in Freo, I’ve been itching for a go at customising my very own lipstick shades. However, I did also want someone to go with who would be equally enthusiastic about the experience. Fortunately for me, I had just met Tammy, my fellow lipstick enthusiast. Spurred on by Safiya’s Bite Lip Lab experience, we booked our appointments and excitedly headed down to the Lip Lab in Perth city. Prior to visiting the Lib Lab, I went through numerous reviews trying to find out if the lipsticks were worth the splurge because let’s be practical, beyond the experience, I wanted to know that I would still use my custom shades and enjoy them. However much to my disappointment, there wasn’t a peep about it. So I made it my mission to do some “fieldwork” and report back to all the wonderful people on the interwebs. 😉 I guess you could say, “I did it for the blog”. Haha. I would be lying if I didn’t admit that we were as …

Skincare Review: Dr Roebuck’s PURE Face Moisturiser

If you know me, I’m an avid lover of natural skincare products. Growing up with eczema, dry, and sensitive skin, I’ve always been very careful with the creams that I use, because one small step could lead to my skin itching up, turning red, or even swelling! But as I got older, I realised that natural products could be more beneficial for my skin and I began to try them out. Once I started, I was hooked! One of my tries was Dr Roebuck’s PURE Face Moisturiser which is a day and night face cream. Dr. Roebuck’s products are made in Australia with minimal ingredients for maximum results. PURE claims to be an ultra-hydrating, hypoallergenic cream packed with essential, naturally derived ingredients to hydrate and soothe sensitive skin. The formula combats flaky, eczema-prone skin as well as nourish and soften the complexion. And this wonder-products is only formulated with 7 ingredients, two of which are natural preservatives. In addition to that, their packaging is made up of 100% recyclable material, and it’s also cruelty-free. It’s a win-win! The main …

Beauty Review: Clinique Quickliner for Eyes

In my opinion, the quickest way to glam up or put together any look is a quick stroke of eyeliner. My go-to eye look has always been black winged eyeliner and if I was going for something a bit more elaborate, an addition swipe of my eye-shadow stick. After almost 6 years of practice, I can easily and almost perfectly complete my eye makeup within 5 minutes. (Thank God for steady hands!) Recently, I’ve been drawn to pencil liners which led to my latest purchases. I was browsing the Catch of the Day app when I came across these two Clinique Quickliner for Eyes that were on offer.   Since I was in the market for new eyeliner, I bought the colours 01 new black and 02 smoky brown. Initially I thought that the colours would look darker and more opaque but they turned out to be in more muted tones. Fortunately, I’ve been drawn to natural looks and did not mind it too much.   Pros:  Now I have tried many different pencil liners, and disliked most of them as they tend to …
