Within the last month, news broke that many beauty lovers had spotted MAC Cosmetics products being sold at their local Target store for a surprisingly reduced price. Many of you would realise that this is a very strange occurrence because MAC have very strict distribution rights, and in Australia it is ONLY sold at MAC Counters (in David Jones and Myer stores, MAC Pro Stores and on the MAC Australian website. Target has never been known as a stockist of MAC Cosmetics. Many savvy bloggers instantly put on their investigation hat and started to look into the how and why of this new MAC stockist.

The biggest concern for most consumers is if the products are from the Grey Market (fraudulent copies that look like the real thing).

Today I am going to show you my attempt at creating the ‘Flawless Face’ as per Laura Mercier’s 4-step technique. Continue Reading

I am ashamed to admit this but I had never tried a Molton Brown product until just a couple months ago. I won’t say I had a good excuse, because I didn’t. Frankly, I thought the product packaging looked so good that I couldn’t possibly afford it so why should I try it only to get addicted to something I cannot afford. But I got over that when Molton Brown launched their Australian online store because I love to support a beauty brand that realises the important of having a good e-commerce site in Australia (for those not Australian, you would be shocked how rare it is!).

So here is my first review, Paradisiac Pink Pepperpod in one of the famous Body & Shower gels.
