Beauty Blogger Recommended Palettes
I love palettes. I think they could actually be my most loved colour cosmetic of all. Whether it be an eyeshadow palette, a lip and cheek palette, or just an everything-in-one. There is something about having lots of pretty colours neatly packaged into one compact that gets me giddy, and apparently I’m not the only beauty blogger who feels that way.

To find out which palettes are popular with the people, I asked my pals in the Beauty Blog Coalition to share their absolute, one-and-only favourite palette and why.  Continue Reading

The release of the Naked 2 eyeshadow palette by Urban Decay was probably the biggest moment in many beauty addicts lives this year. Depending on which country you were in, December 1 or 2 was a date to remmeber. People all across America flooded the Urban Decay website but they sold out quick, as did consecutive releases since. If you were like me and not in the USA, you probably kicked and screamed at having no way of getting it.

My love for the first Urban Decay Naked Palette is quite strong, and it hasn’t wavered since obtaining it well over a year ago. Missing out on Naked 2 was just not an option for me. I needed it. Thanks to the amazing April from Glitter.Gloss.Garbage, the Naked 2 was obtained and heading my way. It arrived only a couple days ago but as I had no internet, it gave me time to really play with it and get an opinion.

There are a lot of reviews and swatches floating around out there. Perhaps my post is completely unnecessary, but after playing for a while I realised the swatches I had seen online were nothing like how they appeared on my fair, pale, NC15-NC20 skin. I am doing this post for those of you who have skin like mine because there is a difference in how these colours work on our skin.

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

Beauty blogger Kimberly Nissen of The Plastic Diaries reviews Trefiel Lace Face Mask, Moisturising sheet mask skincare.

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
