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

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

How To Beat Bad Beauty Habits

Beauty bloggers may know how to online shop like its their job and keep their stuff organised, but they have bad habits too. Beauty bloggers are just humans. Despite the pedestal society has put some of us on, the majority of us are proud to be real women. With this in mind, I gathered my friends from Beauty Blog Coalition to share their bad beauty habits and what, if anything, they are trying to do about it.

We hope you see that we aren’t perfect robots, we are just women looking to be the best possible versions of ourselves.  Continue Reading

Beauty Blogger Beauty Storage Essentials

There are only two types of people I will ever consider taking storage advice from – 1. the professional de-clutter experts on those hoarders TV shows, and 2. beauty bloggers. I’m yet to meet a beauty blogger who keeps their belongings and space to a minimum, but they’re some of the most organised and well-maintained individuals you can come across. When I found out I would be moving into a new house my first thought was, “NEW BEAUTY STORAGE!” (you’ll understand why after you see this).

I asked my fellow beauty bloggers from the Beauty Blog Coalition to tell me which beauty storage product do they rely on most.

Sephora Best Buys

If there were just one minority of people who knew how to expertly shop for beauty products it would have to be beauty bloggers. I’m heading to the USA soon and it’s been a long time since I stepped foot in my beloved beauty store, Sephora. By now I thought Sephora would be shipping to Australia but as we know, that isn’t happening. To assist me in preparing a shopping list I called on my fellow beauty bloggers from the Beauty Blog Coalition to tell me which one product they deemed an essential Sephora purchase.  Continue Reading

Aerosol sunscreen is becoming a more popular choice but in this NIVEA Cooling Sunscreen review I’m introducing you to a sunscreen feature you never knew you needed. It’s life changing and I love it, but does this one benefit counteract NIVEA’s Ultra Sport Protect Cooling Aerosol SPF50+ defects?  Continue Reading

End of Year Sales Fashion Shopping Inspiration

The Boxing Day and End of Year sales are in full-swing. While this can be a fab time to pick up a great deal, it’s not such a money saver if you buy things you don’t need or really want. Having a shopping list of what to buy is one of my most valuable tips for being a savvy sale shopper. However, I’ll admit that sometimes there are things out there I didn’t know I needed. Sometimes, I need someone to introduce me to the things I didn’t know (or forgot) I needed. That’s what I’m offering you some end of year sales shopping inspiration by sharing some of the great goodies I picked up during the Cyber Week sales.

These are the beauty and fashion goodies I got during Black Friday, Cyber Weekend and Cyber Monday.  Continue Reading
