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

Best Vegan Skincare Brands

Everyone has their own opinion on what skincare should do and be, but for me it’s all about aiming for perfection. I don’t want skincare that does the bare minimum and let’s me age gracefully. I only want to use skincare that WORKS – constantly improving my skin and getting it to function at it’s very best. That’s why I’m sharing with you the best vegan skincare brands.

People often confuse my choice to be vegan as somehow meaning I don’t care about my aesthetics any more. They couldn’t be more wrong! My strict standards for top performing skincare isn’t lessened by my cruelty-free choices. If anything, it makes my standards even higher.

There’s a misconception that cruelty-free and vegan skincare is unable subpar; that they’re less effective than animal-based skincare formulations. While this may have been the case decades ago when vegan skincare exclusively meant “natural” products with little to no scientific basis, skincare development has come a long way since then. Don’t get me wrong, there are still hundreds of natural skincare brands out there that do exactly what I don’t want – they don’t improve your skin, they just make it feel and smell nice – and there is a market for those. Not everyone is deathly afraid of aging like me. However, if you strive for clear, healthy and progressively improving skin despite the years passing us by, than I have exactly what you need.

My list of top performing skincare brands will introduce you to the changemakers. The hard-working, highly efficient skincare that allows you to take charge of your own aging appearance. And it just so happens they’re also the best vegan skincare brands too!  Continue Reading
