NYFW Beauty Products

You saw what I took in my beauty bag to New York Fashion Week but what about my makeup bag? Picking which makeup I take away with me is definitely the hardest task I have to face when travelling. It would be like choosing which one of your kids gets to travel with you, except the criteria I look at for my choices comes down to versatility, reliability and proven success at making me look good. Rarely will I take a makeup product that I’ve never used before because I don’t have the room to take more than one of each item …. except for lipstick of course. And eyeshadows. And lashes.

As I did with my beauty bag, I try to take miniature and deluxe sized samples where possible and palettes for items where I need a choice of a few colours, excluding lipsticks because I usually need to carry the lipstick around with me all day for touch-ups.

Without further ado, here’s the makeup that landed in my suitcase.  Continue Reading

Avon Golden Riviera Eyeshadow Duo

Eyeshadow palettes are one of my greatest weaknesses. I don’t claim to be a makeup artist – in fact, my makeup application skills make it obvious I’m not a makeup artist – so teaming makeup colours is hard work for me. I like to try new and daring looks but I’m terrible at picking complimenting shades. Palettes take the hard work out of the equation, and there is nothing easier than picking up an eyeshadow duo that guarantees your eyes will pop.

Avon’s True Colour Eyeshadow Duo’s come in a variety of combinations, ranging from subtle nudes through to bold eye-catchers. Golden Riviera instantly caught my eye when I saw it, teaming gold with blue. Despite how much I loved the look of this shadow in the pan, I was concerned about how it would appear on my pale skin. Find out how it performed and see how it looked on my eyes in this review.  Continue Reading

New Release Beauty Favourites August 2013

*BLINK* Did you see that? I think it was August. It just flew right past my face! It has been a jam packed month for me with the Sydney International Spa & Beauty Expo taking place, as well as a calendar full of beauty launches and media events. I have played my way through nearly 175 new products that launched in August, and that is excluding the fabulous new products I discovered at the expo. As always it was incredibly difficult to pick out the products that truly captured my attention. I have to say the month of August really did show off just how innovative the beauty market really is.

I hope you find something new to discover in this months best new beauty product launches. Continue Reading

In-Home Massage Soothe App Review

Have you had a professional massage in your own home? It was a concept I thought was reserved for rich housewives and high-flying executives. To my surprise, however, massage is no longer a luxury as it’s becoming an essential part of self-care. Hunching over computers and mobile devices, less daily movement and exercise …. our bodies are suffering. Massage is one of the easiest ways to reduce pain and stress from mounting up in our body, but with busier lives comes less time for self care.

I’ve always dreamt of having a massage therapist come to me, and I’ve looked into it many times over the last few years. I tried to find a reliable and certified massage therapist who offered in-home massage and didn’t charge a crazy price but that always seemed to be just out of reach. Then, I heard that Soothe had launched in Australia. An app that turns massage into an on-demand service. Will my Soothe app review reveal an answer to my prayers? Read on to find out!
