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.

Below you will find a list of all the included products, however, we think Sephora will be adding more to the line-up so keep an eye out. For now, you can add these to your shopping list. Continue Reading
If luxury beauty is the only thing you dare buy than this news will be great for you. And while we are at it, it will also make those luxury lusters out there very happy. This month Amazon launched their new Luxury Beauty Store, for the first time retailing some of the best luxury brands. Amazon is the world’s largest online retailer but the messy and perceived “discounted” layout of the site has put luxury brands from joining in the action previously. Amazon does have luxury shoppers who come for things like fashion and gadgets, so why not beauty?
“We have luxury shoppers,” said Chance Wales, director of beauty and health & personal care for the e-commerce giant. “What we have been lacking is luxury brands, and we hope this is the first step to marry our customer’s needs with what brands expect in terms of displaying and selling their luxury [products].”
The good news is that Amazon has catered to the needs of the luxury brands. You won’t find a circus of mismatched products in the Luxury Beauty Store.
“This site is much more premium,” said Stephane Colleu, president and chief executive officer of Dr. Brandt Skincare. “A mass brand is not going to be sold within this platform, which is why it’s very attractive.”
While you may think Amazon has always offered premium brands, this is not the case as they are often listed by third-parties in the Amazon Marketplace. The difference with this site is that it is managed by Amazon, all the products are shot in-house and this is a true partnership between the brand and Amazon. It has been indicated that as part of this partnership, Amazon has also shown itself willing to exert more control over where the brands in the Luxury Beauty Store will be available on the site (read: Marketplace). “We are working with brands to make sure we’re presenting their products in an optimal environment,” said Wales.

I am packing for my vacation in Bali but it is the one task I dislike most. I used to love it but the more often I have to pack a suitcase the more often I forget something. To help me with the task I asked my fellow beauty bloggers from the Beauty Blog Coalition to tell me which beauty item they couldn’t travel without.
Do you have any in common with your favourite beauty blogger? Continue Reading
You may not believe me but it wasn’t so long ago that I needed makeup kits that came with application instructions in order to paint my face. I have always loved makeup but I really had no clue how to apply it. I would use every tip I could from magazines, makeup experts and TV but when it came to standing in front of my bathroom mirror my mind would go blank. Makeup kits designed for beginners are out there and they are just getting more fabulous.
These days I don’t NEED instructions with my makeup purchases but I sure do love it when they come included. It always reminds me there are other ways to do things and sometimes it gives a look that I would never have thought of. They also make for great gifts and Christmas is nearly here! Today I am going to show you some of my favourite makeup kits. Continue Reading
