NYFW Beauty Products

You saw what I took in my beauty bag to New York Fashion Week but what about my makeup bag? Picking which makeup I take away with me is definitely the hardest task I have to face when travelling. It would be like choosing which one of your kids gets to travel with you, except the criteria I look at for my choices comes down to versatility, reliability and proven success at making me look good. Rarely will I take a makeup product that I’ve never used before because I don’t have the room to take more than one of each item …. except for lipstick of course. And eyeshadows. And lashes.

As I did with my beauty bag, I try to take miniature and deluxe sized samples where possible and palettes for items where I need a choice of a few colours, excluding lipsticks because I usually need to carry the lipstick around with me all day for touch-ups.

Without further ado, here’s the makeup that landed in my suitcase.  Continue Reading

Best beauty products july 2014
It’s been a while since I shared a ‘best new beauty’ round-up but after continual requests landed in my inbox I decided to bring it on back. Don’t ever say I don’t give you what you want.

To get back in the swing of things it’s been a pretty subdued month, with only 30 products hitting shelves this month landing on my desk. That means we are keeping things short and concise, but as always only the items that really bowled me over with first-impressions make this list. Continue Reading

Ban Animal Testing

The news we have all been waiting for is here. Kind of. This week China’s Food and Drug Administration announced a step-towards removing animal testing as a mandatory requirement for cosmetics sold in their country. Cruelty-free beauty shoppers burst into song and dance at the news thinking their favourites will now be back on the Leaping Bunny and PETA’s Beauty Without Bunnies list ….. but the celebrations are a little premature. The news isn’t clean cut and is actually rather confusing so I’m going to tell you what you may be missing from between the lines, and why you should run back to your favourite brands JUST YET.

First, let’s recap the announcement.  Continue Reading

BEST NEW BEAUTY PRODUCTS January 2014

It’s been a slow start in the world of beauty launches for 2014. In fact it is so slow I just thought I would have a lazy start to the year and take a month to share my favourites. Most of the industry really kicks up the new launches from February, but some brands wanted to sneak in early and make an impact in January.

We saw 40+ fabulous new products launch in January across all beauty categories. Read on to find out which goodies in hair, nails, makeup and more took our fancy.  Continue Reading

Garnier Fructis Miraculous Oil Flat

This post is sponsored by Garnier Australia

We have seen a boom in hair oils recently but with the majority of the hair market focused on expensive and luxury treatments it is hard to judge whether a supermarket product can offer the same results. Spending $50+ on a hair oil isn’t always the answer, so can you get the same from a product that costs a little more than $10?

With the sunshine out and trips to the beach becoming more regular, now is the time to give your hair extra TLC. Argan Oil offers incredible nourishment for hair and skin but they have become to be associated with being overpoweringly rich and thick. As someone with fine hair, I would have agreed with you until trying this one. My post shares how not only can the Garnier Fructis Miraculous Oil work for different hair types but also the multiple ways it can be used.

Tangle Teezer and Dessata hairbrushes

Detangling hairbrushes are available from just about everywhere now but when it comes to trusted brands there are a few to choose from. In this post I’ve got Tangle Teezer vs Dessata in a battle of the detangling brushes. Both are priced almost identically (here in Australian anyway) so which brush is worth your dollars?

For this battle I’ve selected the Tangle Teezer The Original to go up against the Dessata Maxi Detangling Brush. I own three Tangle Teezer brushes – The Original, Compact Styler and Aqua Splash – but for this post I’m comparing The Original as it’s the most popular model. Read on to find out which might be the best detangling brush for you.  Continue Reading
