I didnt chose the haul life, the haul life chose me!

Hi Guys,

Today I have hauls for you. I swear there is no better feeling then coming home to a parcel of goodies you ordered on the net (Especially when its makeup!). So today I have one parcel to show you from BeautyJoint and another one of a few things I picked up on the shops on Sunday.

So this is what I picked up from Beauty Joint. In total these items came to $35.25 ($US) and shipping was $15.09 ($US) so in total this order was $50.34 ($US) and this order came in less than two weeks so super impressed with the postage. I have never had any issues with BeautyJoint so I was more then happy to order from their again.

–          JORDANA Best Lash Extreme Volumizing Mascara x 2

–          KLEANCOLOR American Eyedol (Wet / Dry Baked Eyeshadow) – (Taupe, Golden Puppy and Khaki)

From a range of shops including Big W, the chemist etc I got the below items on Sunday. The shampoo, conditioner and moisturizer was just picking up a replacement as I already love these products and will forever to continue to replenish these. I have tried many different Shampoos and Conditions and these are the only ones that don’t leave my hair dry and dead. Similarly, with the moisturizer I think this is my third bottle of this. I also picked it up as it was $15 half price at Big W so I had to stock up while it was so cheap

–          ELVIVE Re-Nutrition Nourishing Shampoo – L’Oréal Paris

–          ELVIVE Re-Nutrition Nourishing Conditioner – L’Oréal Paris

–          Face of Australia Limited Edition Screen Siren Nail Enamel (Bombshell, Monroe, No Angel and Travilla)

–          Olay Total Effects – Day Cream

BOE Beauty Review #bbloggers

Hi Guys,

Today I am going to be reviewing two BOE Beauty products I picked up from Big W the other day. BOE Beauty is an affordable cosmetic line with all products retailing at $2. I only bought two things because I wanted to see what the quality was like before I go back and purchase more, even though they are only $2 anyways why buy more products if they don’t work, am I right!?

Image

I’m not going to lie, I didn’t have high expectations for these products at all. I mean they are $2 so how can they be amazing!? I managed to get a blush and one of their lipsticks in #3 Perfect Pink.

In terms of the blush, it’s such a beautiful shade – an elegant soft peach/glittery shade. The product itself is quite creamy and isn’t powdery. It applies well and despite me not being a huge blush fan, I will definitely be reaching for this blush if I’m going to wear blush.

With the lipstick, I was also pleasantly surprised. It’s quite sheer and not extremely pigmented, but as its $2 I didn’t expect MAC quality. A point to note would be that if I was picking this lipstick off the shade on the bottom I would be disappointed. The shade on the bottom is quite a bright pink yet when applied on the lips it’s quite a soft pink.

ImageImage

Both products don’t have super fancy packaging, just neat and practical.

Image

I will definitely be going back to pick up a few more products and I definitely recommend you to do.

Until next time..

Top 5 Favourite Nail Polishes + Nail Polish Collection

Hi Guys,

Today I am doing my Top 5 Favourite Nail Polishes I own!

From left to right Its Lillibet’s Jubilee by Butter London, Fiji by Essie, Call me Maybe by Chi Chi Cosmetics, Pacific Blue by Sally Hansen and Mint Royale by FCUK.

These colours would have to be my most used. They are all so different but all so practical.

I also have a large number of nail polishes as prior to my makeup obsession I had a very serious nail obsession!!

Over the space of a few months I reckon I collected over 100 nail polishes and spend over $500 on nail polish, crazy right! Mum would scoff at me everytime I came home with more nail polishes!

What are your top nail polish colours?

Until next time..

OOTN and MOTN #bbloggers

Hi Guys,

This is my OOTN and FOTN from Saturday night when I went out to celebrate my cousins birthday. I am wearing a tartan dress I picked up from Target for $25 which I think is an absolute steal. For clubbing proof makeup I am wearing MAC Studio Fix Fluid and MAC Prolongwear Concealer with my favourite Australis powder and NARS Laguna Bronzer. I kept it simple with the eyes and just did a thin line of black liner using Essences thin felt eyeliner pen and added heaps of Mascara (a combination of Rimmel Scandal Eyes and Benefits Mascara). To finish I used my new coral YSL lipstick.

Do you like the tartan look? I’m so addicted to tartan ATM!

March Favourites Vol#2

Hi Guys,

So today I am bringing you my March Favourites (I know I’m late, sowwwwweeee!) As per my new method of doing this I created last month I am going to show you my favourites in this format:

1 favourite Scent

2 favourite Lifestyle items

3 favourite Bloggers

4 favourite YouTuber’s

5 favourite Beauty Products

 

So for my favourite scent this month I am not choosing what I would classify as a traditional scent. Instead, I am choosing my body wash scrub atm as its basically my new scent. I smell like it all the time cause the scent stays with me during the day! I picked this one up for $4 and I love it, will definitely be repurchasing.

Image

My two favourite lifestyle products for this month is set of Alex draws from Ikea and this little mirror mosaic bowl I bought at a market about a year ago. The set of Alex drawers from Ikea has been a godsent for me as it fits all my beauty items so I know where to find something when I am looking for it! Before it was a mad scramble in my room to find what I was looking for. My little mirror mosaic thing is jus so cute so I had to include it, its also where all the samples I am wanting to try are kept.

ImageImage

My top three bloggers for the month are Rebekah, Tahanna and Jade who is actually an instagram blogger which is awesome. Make sure you click on all their blogs and follow them cause they are amazing and awesome friends I have made through my IG account.

My favourite YouTuber’s of the month are Giovanna Belling, Casper Lee, Marcus Butler and Tanya Burr. This month was a mixture of beauty and random YouTube accounts but I love all of these guys and am a subscriber so may sure you check them out too :).

And now my favourite beauty picks for the month! I have picked MAC Candy Yum Yum Lipstick, Maybelline’s Fit Me Foundation in 330, Essence’s Studio Nails XXL Nail Thickener, Rimmel London Scandal Eyes Mascara and Real Techniques Powder Brush.

I got MAC Candy Yum Yum Lipstick when I was in the US and it has since become by go-to clubbing lipstick – bright AND matte (perfection!), I picked up Maybelline’s Fit Me Foundation in 330 at the Priceline 40% off sale and I have been using this baby for cream contouring – lovvvvvvve it.  Essence’s Studio Nails XXL Nail Thickener has helped repair the poor condition of my nails due to lots of nail painting as of recent – I also use it as a base cost. I got given the Rimmel London Scandal Eyes Mascara and never really thought much of it when I first tried it but started using it recently when another mascara ran out and now I adore it. Its volumizes my lashes like crazy and make them look super long. Lastly the Real Techniques Powder Brush is now not only a favourite but a staple, this is the perfect all over face brush and I can’t say enough nice things about it!

Image

Thats all for this month.

Until next time..
