Christian Louboutin Nail Polish

Despite my admiration and lust for Christian Louboutin’s sexy women’s shoes, I will never own a pair. Unfortunately the french designer exclusively uses leather and exotic animal skins, something I’m very much against. However, now there is something for girls like me now that Louboutin has officially made his entry into the beauty world. Let’s give a warm welcome to Christian Louboutin Beauté.

The very first product will come of no surprise. The iconic red sole of Louboutin’s heels has been bottled in the form of nail lacquer, capturing that sexy red hue fashionista’s all over the world identify in a glimpse. Continue Reading

September. The start of Spring (in Australia) and a very welcome change of temperature, while the northern hemisphere move into fall. It is the time where we switch our wardrobes, makeup, skincare and almost every part of our lives. In beauty, we have seen a big change this time around. September is a big month.

So far I have welcomed 98 new products going on sale this month. It is the most new launches I have seen since starting this series in March but I also believe the most in my entire 2 and a bit years of writing The Plastic Diaries. With this huge number of new beauty products you can bet that creating this months list was awfully difficult. Continue Reading

Rosie Fernandez, Managing Director, La Prairie Australia

It has been quite some time since the last Brand Profile post and it has been something I have wanted to revisit ever since. I will be kicking these off again and to start I am sharing with you one of my all time favourite skincare brands, La Prairie. This brand not only makes amazing skincare that really works, but they do it in a way that makes you feel a million dollars. It is luxury at its finest and a brand that everyone should experience at least once.

If you have ever asked me for skincare advice, chances are my answer has included La Prairie in some form. I am yet to have a bad experience with any of their products or services, and it is a brand I am genuinely giddy to see in-store or at a spa.

To give you some extra insight into the La Prairie brand, I have spoken with La Prairie Australia’s Managing Director, Rosi Fernandez. Continue Reading
