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: 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 …

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 …
