New and exciting beauty products are being launched all around us. At last count there were 60 new releases in the beauty categories this month and picking some favourites was nearly impossible. Frankly, they are all amazing, but let’s see what came in at the top of my list.

A new player in the cosmetics game has officially entered the Australian market …. and I could not be happier to welcome them. MeMeMe Cosmetics is a brand that is known and loved in the UK. I knew very little about them until recently, but from the sounds of things, they are right up my alley!

I wonder what this is??

Reviews and Swatches

Like every beauty brand that comes to our shores, I instantly wanted to try it. The draw card for me is that they offer on-trend items at around half the price. You know I love me a bargain. Today I am going to show you 5 of the key products I think you will love.

Blush Me! Blush Box

First thing I thought of when I saw these were Benefit Cosmetics boxed powders (I already told you about my love for Sugarbomb). The Blush Boxes from MeMeMe come in four variances, Bronze, Coral, Pink and Rouge. Just like the Benefit versions these also come with a little brush inside, but these are different in that Continue Reading

Today I am introducing you to what will be another frequent feature, the Brand Profile. This idea came to me while I was in the USA last year. I was having so much fun shopping up a storm for products I know and loved, or products from brands I know and loved, but found myself almost in tears when trying to decide if I should buy products I have NEVER heard of. This anguish inspired me to make a very long list of brands to discover. Continue Reading

When I apply a full face of make-up my blush is the second last thing I do (lips are last). Besides the fact it is logistically the correct way to apply make-up working from your eyes down, I just take so long picking which blush I want to use that I put it off. I have been known to run out the door with 2 blushes in tow so I can decide on my way to wherever I am going. You would think eye shadows or lip colours would be harder but not for me, its always blush. I am a fan of Continue Reading

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
