Best New Beauty Products

I don’t want to admit it but … September is over. I know, it’s a shock considering it’s actually almost October but can you believe it? I swear it was only February last month but now we are rolling into the month of Pumpkin Spice lattes and Halloween-themed everything. Now that we’ve said goodbye to September let me show you which products launched that captured my attention.

Nearly 60 new products landed on my desk for their September launch and it was overwhelming just how good the competition between them were. The biggest competition was in the lips category …. so many new, shiny, pretty lippies! Which ones won me over? Let’s find out! Continue Reading

The Parcel Beauty Box Spring

The beauty subscription box scene has been shaken up this season with the arrival of Marie Claire’s The Parcel. This new beauty box service is promising to deliver the best beauty edit, selected by Marie Claire’s own editors, right to your front door. It’s the editor-approved curated beauty box and there’s no jealousy because everyone gets the same products, but does it contain anything good?

I videoed my unboxing of the very first limited edition box, the Spring edit, and below I have a review of each product included. Will you want to subscribe after seeing this? Have a look!  Continue Reading

Jason Wu for Lancome mirror

Jason Wu loves a good beauty collaboration and who can blame him, beauty and fashion do go hand-in-hand. Just this week I was playing with the CND x Jason Wu collaboration, thinking how beautifully he works with colour, so it’s fitting I wanted to share the images of his latest collaboration with Lancôme.

The Pre-Fall 2014 makeup collection is limited edition and currently exclusive to the USA. Hopefully we will see the 11-piece collection appear internationally soon!  Continue Reading

Beauty Blogger Recommended Palettes
I love palettes. I think they could actually be my most loved colour cosmetic of all. Whether it be an eyeshadow palette, a lip and cheek palette, or just an everything-in-one. There is something about having lots of pretty colours neatly packaged into one compact that gets me giddy, and apparently I’m not the only beauty blogger who feels that way.

To find out which palettes are popular with the people, I asked my pals in the Beauty Blog Coalition to share their absolute, one-and-only favourite palette and why.  Continue Reading

Female Hair Loss Before and After

Female hair loss and hair thinning are a growing sector within the beauty market. I used to think female hair loss was a beauty issue and as such could be treated with beauty products. Self-inflicted hair loss is my most common concern. I blamed my tight braids, hair irons and chemical damage. However, the fact remains that the leading causes for female hair loss are health related.

When my normal amount of hair fall dramatically increased, with noticeable receding of my hairline, I panicked. I didn’t know where to begin with treating it but I couldn’t understand why it was happening. I’d stop styling my hair in tight do’s, I rarely heat style and I haven’t dyed my hair in almost 2 years. I ruled out self-inflicted hair loss so I went straight to my GP (doctor) to ask for advice. It turns out that my female hair loss was completely reversible for less than $20!  Continue Reading

Beauty blogger Kimberly Nissen of The Plastic Diaries reviews Trefiel Lace Face Mask, Moisturising sheet mask skincare.

If you follow beauty on Instagram it’s highly likely you’ve seen the Trefiel Lace Sheet Mask. They look like a piece of black lace, often seen adorning the faces of cute beauty influencers. What they actually are is a range of sheet masks. Really pretty sheet masks.

The Trefiel Lace Sheet Mask is available in four formulations – Moisturising, Brightening, Repairing and Toning. Trefiel initially launched with just the Moisturising mask but later rebranded and added 3 more masks to the line-up. I chose to review their original Moisturising Face Mask.  Continue Reading
