Best Barbie Pink Lipgloss

Phew things make me happier than a bright, Barbie-pink lip colour. Usually I favour a matte lipstick or a full-coverage liquid lipstick but this Spring I’ve rekindled my love for lipgloss. It’s probably been about 5+ years since I really took an interest in lipgloss but with the change of season I’m finding a shiny pout is more reflective of the excitement I’m feeling for warmer temperatures, beach days and spring dresses.

Here are my top 8 pink lipgloss loves. Continue Reading

Black Forest Beauty Products

One of my favourite desserts is Black Forest Cake. The mixture of chocolate and cherries go so well together and the rich colours make it feel extra decadent. After recently creating this masterpiece vegan black forest cake it made me realise how beautiful that choc-cherry colour is. I instantly started wearing it on my nails, lips and cheeks.

Now that Fall is arriving in the top half of the world, I thought I would share my favourite shade of the season for you to all join in on. Here are my top picks of Black Forest-inspired beauty.  Continue Reading

David Jones Beauty Book Header

David Jones is one of Australia’s biggest department stores (the other being Myer) and considered by many as THE destination for beauty shopping. Personally, I have always been a bit of a Myer girl but over the past few years I have been preferring online over the physical stores. My shopping experiences at the big Australian department stores never go very well, especially at David Jones. The ladies behind the counter always give me filthy looks, even when I am forking over hundreds of dollars on a beauty haul. I always get caught at the register with a 50 year old machine that takes 20 minutes to print out a receipt. And no matter what time of day I go there always seems to be a mothers group with 20 prams in tow knocking me over. Not to mention the last time I went to David Jones Food Hall I got food poisoned by a smoothie. I really have no luck at those stores but yesterday the David Jones Beauty catalogue landed in my letterbox and all those bad memories were pushed aside. The 60 or so pages of beauty porn have lured me in and I am going to share with you the special offers that won me over.

The best thing I noticed about the David Jones Beauty book this year was that most of the offers are available online. Now I don’t have to go in to a store and have a cranky old sales assistant swear at me under her breath. Score!

Here are the Gift With Purchase offers that bowled me over.  Continue Reading

I don’t know what it is this week but lips are getting my fullest attention right now. Is it just me or is there something awesome about a perfectly painted lip? More specifically, a bright or bold coloured one.

First it was the dramatic blue lip at Richard Chai, then I showed you red lips from Napoleon Perdis … and now it is this beautiful pink number created by Revlon’s Global Artistic Director, Gucci Westman for the Luca Luca show at NYFW.

Bold lip, great skin, flowy hair. I think this entire look is stunning. So, what does the creator have to say about it?

“I was inspired by the designer’s color palette and chose shades and textures that would bring out the essence of the entire collection,”

“It reminded me of the sophistication of an Italian Vogue story I’d seen with girls that looked very luxurious, young and polished.  The slightly transparent yet glossy purple eye works beautifully with the lip. It’s glamorous yet approachable.”

– Gucci Westman, Global Artsitic Director for Revlon
