Sephora Australia store photos

Sephora’s Australian store opening in Sydney was the biggest thing to happen to Australian beauty fans this year. It was a highly anticipated and despite a lot of negativity from some of the online community overall the launch was a massive success. The majority of people are happy or accepting of the pricing but with a lot of the final brand details withheld until opening day, I haven’t been able to give you a run-down of the brands and products that impressed me most. That changes today!

This is your guide to the must-view, must-play and must-buy brands and products available at Sephora Australia.  Continue Reading

The Body Shop vegan product information

We’ve had lots of requests for more vegan product lists so I’m excited to bring you one for the most requested store, The Body Shop. As probably the most globally recognised cruelty-free beauty brand, The Body Shop is often mistaken for being entirely vegan but while it’s unfortunate to report that isn’t the case, they still do have a huge vegan offering.

Sephora Australia Price Lists

Sephora Australia open their first store in Sydney this Friday, that’s just 2 days away! I’ve shared with you lots of exclusive snoops since the news broke they were opening a store here, and most recently all the Sephora Sydney opening day information but the one thing I haven’t shared is the price lists. Today, I’m breaking the silence.

We were told Sephora would be keeping prices comparable to their US pricing but no one has actually shared the pricing in detail. Price lists for the brands Sephora Australia will be carrying were distributed to media quite sometime ago but I’m publishing the pricing of the most in-demand products and brands now so you can go in on opening weekend and know exactly what you want to get. My pricing list shows the Sephora Australia recommended retail price in AUD. Continue Reading

Rose Gold Colour Trend

I’m absolutely obsessed with rose gold right now. It’s by far the prettiest shade of jewellery I’ve seen but the trend in rose gold bling has now spilled over to other fashion items, beauty products and even homewares. This trend is going to be around for a while to come so I’m stocking up on everything I can find. Here are the gorgeous rose gold items I’ve found so far, plus my wish list of more pinky golden goodness.  Continue Reading
