Posts in Dita Von Teese

I have just seen news that Dita Von Teese, aka Queen of Burlesque and former Mrs. Marilyn Manson, has launched her very own clothing line …. and I could not be happier.

Muse, her limited-edition capsule collection, only contains 5 dress designs but they are a beauty. Banking on her famous boudoir image, the pieces are all about classic glamour.

As someone who is looking for flattering clothing these days, I know I will be jumping at the chance to try these clothes on. The range will be available exclusively at David Jones in Australia with a size range of 8 to 20. There is no word on whether this collection will become available in any other country, so for now us Aussies are the lucky winners!

Official Description

Dita Von Teese Muse is the epitome of classic retro-glamour with a launch capsule collection that features five fabulous pieces, including vintage-inspired dresses and a tulle-layered trench coat. Each dress includes couture detailing and grosgrain ribbon that cinches the waist to create a svelte feminine silhouette for which the fashion muse is so renowned.

The collection showcases traditional features such as in-built corsetry, silk Crepe de Chine lining and silhouettes that are carefully constructed to suit the female form. The pieces are united by a classic colour-palette, which includes backstage black, ruby lips red and a stunning original rose print.

What do you think of this new development for Dita Von Teese? Does the sound of her collection interest you? Let me know by commenting below!

Beauty blogger Kimberly Nissen of The Plastic Diaries reviews Dermaquest Stem Cell 3D Facial Cleanser

Face cleansers are seen as quite an underrated product in terms of our overall skincare needs, but they’re actually really important. The correct cleanser for your skin should remove dirt, debris and build-up that otherwise gets in the way of your other skincare products delivering their best results. A vast majority of skin issues can be activated simply by using the wrong cleanser. When it comes to anti-aging, it’s essential to not use a face cleanser that is drying or stripping. Hydration is key, and that’s one of the major claims behind the DermaQuest Stem Cell 3D Facial Cleanser.

As I continue my fight against aging and dry skin I’ve tested the DermaQuest Stem Cell 3D Facial Cleanser. Is it worth the price tag? Read on to find out.  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

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
