Grace Choi Presents Mink 3D Makeup Printer

Could you imagine a high-tech world where we can print out our colour cosmetics just like we do currently with paper. Can you picture yourself snapping a photo, picking a colour you like and printing it out into an eyeshadow pan instead of forking out cash (or card in my case) to buy it from a retailer? It sounds like a fantasy but one young woman has presented her concept that could become a reality. Grace Choi, a graduate from Harvard Business School has publicly stated that the beauty industry is a bunch of “bulls#!t”. Choi says that we could all be DIY-ing our cosmetics and put an end to these big cosmetic companies. Is she right? Is she wrong?

Whether you have heard all about this story or not, I’m going to tell you why printing your own makeup is not going to be a reality for quite sometime, and I may never want it to be.  Continue Reading

Last week saw the official launch of ACPs 30 Days Of Fashion & Beauty for 2011. If you were reading this blog a year ago you may remember that I talked about some of the 2010 events. I also attended some but for some reason I lacked posting about them. I don’t know what I was thinking …. they were awesome!

I couldn’t let the weeks roll past without giving you a little snapshot of the events I think you HAVE to get involved in. But first ….

As mentioned before, my major skin flaw is my super dark circles under my eyes. I am forever on the search for a product that will just make a slight improvement because I know clearing it completely would just be a miracle. I have seen every expert in Sydney and no one can tell me exactly why I have such dark circles but we have been able to narrow it down to two things, A. Its in my heritage to have hyper-pigmented skin below my eyes OR B. I have a Kidney problem.

Seeing as though I refuse to go see a doctor for anything that may involve a blood test, I personally have ruled out the Kidney problem. Continue Reading

I was always the type to think that I never needed a Magazine Subscription. I figure if I heard about it, or a cover took my fancy I would buy it at the time. Funnily enough every month the same magazines would peak my interest and I would buy them anyway. I eventually caught on to the fact Continue Reading

Tangle Teezer and Dessata hairbrushes

Detangling hairbrushes are available from just about everywhere now but when it comes to trusted brands there are a few to choose from. In this post I’ve got Tangle Teezer vs Dessata in a battle of the detangling brushes. Both are priced almost identically (here in Australian anyway) so which brush is worth your dollars?

For this battle I’ve selected the Tangle Teezer The Original to go up against the Dessata Maxi Detangling Brush. I own three Tangle Teezer brushes – The Original, Compact Styler and Aqua Splash – but for this post I’m comparing The Original as it’s the most popular model. Read on to find out which might be the best detangling brush for you.  Continue Reading
