Maybelline NY Baby Lips Loves Color Lip Balm Flat Lay

Baby Lips have been THE runaway hit in the lip balm category. It seems no matter who you stop on the street to ask a lady which is their favourite lip balm, the answer is “Maybelline NY Baby Lips” 97%* of the time. I am definitely one of those girls and I couldn’t have imagined in a million years that Maybelline could improve on the Baby Lips phenomenon. But they did. How? They added colour!!!

Ahhh yes. Colour. I totally forgot about that stuff. Maybelline took the already fabulous Baby Lips balm and added some hot tints to them, resulting in Baby Lips Loves Color lip balm. So far there are 4 shades in the collection and I am going to show you the full lip swatches as well as share my review.

Maybelline NY Volum' Express The Falsies Everlasting Mascara

Wearing mascara in summer is usually one of my most painful tasks. Summer is the worst time for my allergies and my eyes water like a fountain. They sting, they burn and I constantly feel the need to rub them, so you can imagine wearing mascara isn’t the most pleasant thing.

It made bold claims about being flake-proof, smudge-proof and the most powerful waterproof formula Maybelline has ever created. Of course I wanted to put it to the test and see if it would withstand my weeping.

Most mascaras, even waterproof, will never get through a morning with my allergies. If it isn’t smudging it is usually bits breaking off and landing in my eye. The claims of Maybelline’s latest release in the Volum’ Express The Falsies franchise gave me hope, but did it work? I think my review will answer that for you.  Continue Reading

I find January can either be a slow month for new releases or a crazy jam packed month. This year, I am finding it a little quiet so picking my favourites from the bunch were a little easier. The biggest category is definitely colour, with lots of new nail polish and makeup lines to keep you drowning in a rainbow coloured pool.

Let’s take a look at what has me buzzing this month. Continue Reading

Drew Barrymore Flower Cosmetics Line

Drew Barrymore has been the face for Lancôme and CoverGirl in the past decade but now Drew is tackling a new frontier with her very own colour cosmetic range called Flower. The name of the line is an obvious pick for Drew, being that her film production company is called Flower Films and it is a name that fits well with Drew’s persona.

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
