If you haven’t started buying christmas and holiday gifts for your loved ones than don’t panic, I think most of us are in the same boat. To combat that last minute rush of panic, I am going to share with you a whole heap of holiday gift guides that will make buying presents a breeze. To start off I am going to show you the best offerings from one of my favourite beauty retailers, Sephora. These beauty kits include makeup, body, skincare, fragrance and nails.

For my fellow Australians, I know how painful it is to see these amazing products from a store that won’t ship to us but I have some  news that may help you so look out for that later on. Now ….. let’s look at the gifts! Continue Reading

“I’m Glam… Therefore I Am”

An essential beauty kit packed full of Benefit beauties. Continue Reading

This month has been a little lacking in the review department thanks to all the craziness with Cosmoprof North America and other adventures in the US of A. But don’t think I forgot about you!

I briefly mentioned that I picked up this item in a recent haul post, but what I didn’t mention was that I got two. One for me, one for you! It was just too good to pass up. So what is it?

Benefit Cosmetics – Little Look Goods

This adorable kit contains three deluxe sized (VERY deluxe. Like huge!) samples of Benefit’s best sellers. Here is what you will score:

1x BADgal lash mascara in Black (4.0g)

1x Dandelion Brightening Face Powder (7.0g)

1x “that gal” Brightening Face Primer (7.5mL)

The Benefit Cosmetics Little Look Goods pack

I am already a huge fan of BADgal mascara and “that gal” primer, but I have never tried Dandelion before. If the other boxed powders from Benefit are anything to go by, I will love Dandelion just as much as I love Sugarbomb.

One lucky winner will score this adorable set of Benefit goodies!

I opened my one up to take a photo. I promise the winner gets a brand new, sealed one!

Last Thursday (26 May) we celebrated the wonderful birthday of yours truly, The Plastic Diaries. Yes, we reached the ripe old age of 1. I mentioned to you briefly that today (May 30) I will be celebrating with a big giveaway. For those of you who are regular readers of The Plastic Diaries you may notice that today is the last Monday of the month, which is usually when we have our monthly giveaway, but this month I wanted to honour our 1st birthday by doing something a little different. Instead of giving away just 1 product that I love from the past 30 days, I wanted to do a years worth. This giveaway features products or brands I have mentioned in the past year, whether it had been a review or a special offer, there is a mix of everything.

Why This Giveaway

Before I get into the prizes and competition nitty gritty, I just wanted to say a few quick words. HA! I know, I have never said a ‘few’ or ‘quick’ words in my lifetime, but I will try.

Making it to the 1 year mark for me means a lot. It has been a tiresome, exhausting, crazy and joyful ride that I wouldn’t have changed a minute of. However, how this past year has been for me is of no real importance. This past year has really been about you. Talking to you, sharing with you and having fun with you. More than anything I hope you have learnt something while reading The Plastic Diaries but also had a little fun. Some of you openly express your opinions, via the comments, Twitter or Facebook, and I love every time you do. Others sit there quietly and support me from a far, I love that too.
