Avon Golden Riviera Eyeshadow Duo

Eyeshadow palettes are one of my greatest weaknesses. I don’t claim to be a makeup artist – in fact, my makeup application skills make it obvious I’m not a makeup artist – so teaming makeup colours is hard work for me. I like to try new and daring looks but I’m terrible at picking complimenting shades. Palettes take the hard work out of the equation, and there is nothing easier than picking up an eyeshadow duo that guarantees your eyes will pop.

Avon’s True Colour Eyeshadow Duo’s come in a variety of combinations, ranging from subtle nudes through to bold eye-catchers. Golden Riviera instantly caught my eye when I saw it, teaming gold with blue. Despite how much I loved the look of this shadow in the pan, I was concerned about how it would appear on my pale skin. Find out how it performed and see how it looked on my eyes in this review.  Continue Reading

Best new beauty products Oct Nov 2013

Baby did a bad bad thing. In this situation, I am ‘Baby’. It would seem I was so excited and stressed about taking a holiday in October that I totally missed out on posting the best new product launches for that month. There were too many great new finds to skip it completely so I have merged October and November together so you won’t miss a thing.

I was introduced to over 200 new products that went on sale in October and November – a mammoth amount but mostly because of the holiday season as brands create special editions and limited releases for gift giving. You can check out our gift guides for the best of the holiday releases but for now let’s look at the new and noteworthy products to hit shelves over the past couple of months.  Continue Reading

New Release Beauty Favourites September 2013

HAPPY SEPTEMBER!! Even though my birthday is in April, I find September is my favourite month. In Australia it is that change from deathly cold to Spring. On the few occasions I have been in the USA in September everyone seems to be excited for Fall. It is also my favourite month because it is when we see a lot of new beauty launches. The rich and diverse colour palettes for face and nails is thrilling for me, and like every other month this year I have been crazy busy trying to go through them all. For the month of September I had to sift through 85 new products. Here is my curated list of favourites. Continue Reading

End of Year Sales Fashion Shopping Inspiration

The Boxing Day and End of Year sales are in full-swing. While this can be a fab time to pick up a great deal, it’s not such a money saver if you buy things you don’t need or really want. Having a shopping list of what to buy is one of my most valuable tips for being a savvy sale shopper. However, I’ll admit that sometimes there are things out there I didn’t know I needed. Sometimes, I need someone to introduce me to the things I didn’t know (or forgot) I needed. That’s what I’m offering you some end of year sales shopping inspiration by sharing some of the great goodies I picked up during the Cyber Week sales.

These are the beauty and fashion goodies I got during Black Friday, Cyber Weekend and Cyber Monday.  Continue Reading
