October Favourites 2014

First of all, I can’t believe how quickly October ended. October has been such a roller coaster ride for me. It has been difficult trying to juggle assignments, work, life, and also staying healthy all at once (life of an Uni student). BUT with the help of a few things that I consider my ‘happy pills’, I have managed to retain my sanity. Secondly, WELCOME NOVEMBER! In this monthly favourite, I have chosen (in no particular order) 5 of my top favourite obsessions in the month of October.  1) Savvy Ultra Matte Lip Colour  I went into Priceline a while ago to casually look around and kill time while I was on my work break. I told myself that I won’t buy anything but, I came across this lip product which was on sale and immediately, had the strongest urge to try it. I usually gravitate towards brighter colours when it comes to lip products but, somehow this nude-brown lip product caught my attention. To be honest, I have dry lips and since this product …

September Favourites 2014

Hello my lovely dudettes! It’s time for my September favourites. I can’t believe it’s October already! Where did all the time go…? September has been a pretty hectic month and believe it or not, I did not have much time to try new beauty products. So this month’s favourites consists mainly of products that I’ve been using for a while but have been really loving this month! 1. Australis Mineral Face Highlighter – Pearl I’ve been meaning to get a highlighter for a really long time. I bought this product from Priceline at the beginning of the month. This is the first time that I’m using a highlighter and wow.. do I have to say, I’m really pleased with the results. The shade Pearl is perfect for my skin tone and gives me the right amount of oomph and dewy effect. The product has a slight shimmer but just enough to brighten up your face and give you a fresh and light glow. I didn’t need to use too much of the product to see …

Review: Sally Hansen Miracle Gel

I honestly did not intend to try out Sally Hansen’s miracle gel range. However, after stumbling upon this colour online and noticing that the colour is very similar to how Pacific Blue (from Sally Hansen’s Hard as Nails Xtreme range) used to look like, I could not resist trying it out. I tried out Sally Hansen’s Miracle Gel range in the shade 360 Tidal Wave. It has a basic 2 step application process and claims to last up to 14 days.   The colour is a gorgeous vibrant blue that stands out from afar. The consistency of the polish is very good as it only needs 2 coats to be opaque. For all of you who want pretty nails but don’t have the patience to go through the tedious process of base coat to top coat, this range is perfect for you as you don’t need to apply a base coat prior to the colour. The polish also dries quite fast compared to most polishes. What I really liked about this range is that it …

August Bellabox Review

When I first found out that the theme of August’s Bellabox is Sport Your Style, I was quite intrigued as to what products I would be getting. I have to say though, the products really did surprise me. When I first opened this month’s Bellabox I was a bit disappointed as what greeted me was two coconut scented products (something that I honestly wouldn’t purchase myself), a sample of Palmer’s Cocoa Butter moisturiser (flashback to 13 year old me smelling the product for the 1st time and refusing to use it) and a bottle of neutral coloured nail polish. (Don’t get me wrong… I loveeee nail polish. And to get a Sally Hansen one is definitely awesome. But the colour.. wasn’t what I usually used.) So as you can see, sampling all of this month’s products was a daunting experience for me. To start things off: 1. Aveeno Daily Moisturising Lotion I honestly have soooo much love for this product. I brought it on a road trip in August as it is small and convenient …

July Bellabox Review

I am sooo excited to be reviewing this because this is my first Bellabox!! So the theme of this month’s Bellabox is American Beauty. The special American product that I got in this month’s box is the Nicole by OPI nail polish. Enough of my rambling… Off to the reviews! To start things off: 1. Yu-Be Moisturising Skin Cream I was pretty excited to try out this one because it’s a Japanese product and it claims to be highly effective all year long. It is supposed to work on all dry skin areas of the body from head to toe – including the face and lips. I expected the product to come out in a creamy liquid form however when I squeezed the tube, it came out in a thicker balm like formula. When I first applied it, what hit me was scent of the product. Honestly, it smells like some Chinese medicinal product (and kinda granny-ish really..) But that aside, the product is nice and extremely moisturising. I only needed to squeeze out a …

June Favourites 2014

As the season here in Perth transits from Autumn to Winter, this months favourites consists mainly of hydrating products to keep my skin supple and moisturised. 1. Nivea Pure & Natural Milk & Honey Lip Balm This is my ultimate go to Lip Balm. One of my initial concerns when I first got this lip balm was that the scent will be heavily sweet and nauseating. I’m not one for sweetly scented products but this one has just the right amount of sweetness in it. The lip balm moisturises my lips perfectly and helps my cracked lips recover which is sooo essential especially as the weather is getting colder. 2. Mario Badescu Skin Care Honey Moisturiser  Again, not big on sweetly scented products, but this one is very lightly scented and refreshing. I love how the moisturiser spreads lightly across my face and soaks up almost immediately.  It doesn’t leave an oily film on the surface of my skin (which is definitely a plus point in my books). Even though it was quite an investment …
