Review: Natralus Natural Paw Paw Lip Butters in Coconut, Honey and Vanilla, and Strawberry

Natralus Natural Paw Paw Lip Butter $5.75

Natralus Natural Paw Paw Lip Butter $5.75

A few months ago, I was very lucky to receive a lovely package from Natralus containing their new Paw Paw Lip Butters in three flavours – coconut, honey and vanilla, and strawberry.

As the weather changes, my flaky and dry lips are in need of some pampering. These Natralus Natural Paw Paw Lip Butters contain ingredients such as shea butter and vitamin E to ensure smooth, protect and restore your lips. In addition, these lip butters contain 51mg per gram of Australian organic Papaya!

Natralus Natural Paw Paw Lip Butter $5.75

Natralus Natural Paw Paw Lip Butter $5.75

The lip butters go on smoothly and smell great! There’s no stickiness, just lightweight shine. It does apply thickly but  this does mean that the product will last a long time on you lips. The Natural Paw Paw Lip Butters are naturally free from petrochemicals, petroleum jelly, parabens, silicones, mineral oil, and colour – which is great news as you don’t want to be putting chemicals on your lips. I apply this prior to applying my lipstick, before bed at night, and on no make up days.

I actually gave one to my mother as she loves applying paw paw ointment on her chapped lips and these are much better than the chemical-laden paw paw ointment she was using :)

These come in 10g tubes for only $5.75 from your local Woolworths or selected pharmacies.

April 2016 Empties

I have always wanted to do monthly posts – favourites, empties etc but I can never commit. I always forget to keep my empties so that I can blog about them; I am too fickle to really have monthly favourites but I am going to try.

Earlier in April, I finally graduated university and completed college. This meant I no longer needed my desk as a “study” desk and I was able to clean it out and convert it into sanctuary, that is, my makeup desk. It gave me so much pleasure to be able to display my makeup in all its glory. Anyhow, this meant I was able to see products, at a glance, that were close to empty and use them up for an empties post! Yay!

So what did I use up in the month of April?

April 2016 empties

April 2016 empties

Curash Fragrance Free baby wipes – these are my go to when I am lazy to remove my makeup. I have gone through about ten of these and always repurchase. This time, however, after cleaning out and reorganising my beauty stash, I didn’t repurchase the baby wipes as I had other facial cleansing wipes to use up.

Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy – a scent that has been in my stash for years. As I keep my fragrances away from sunlight, it kept really well. I saw that it had a bit left so committed myself to using it until it was finished. I loved this scent when I purchased it and still do – it’s a very fruity and sweet without being sickening. A scent from my teenage years, it was time to move on. Kind of symbolic that I finished this in the same month as completing another chapter in my life. I probably won’t repurchase as I have way too many perfumes go through and I tend to gravitate towards floral scents nowadays.

Britney Spears Curious – another purchase from  my teenage  years that was sent to the back shelf of my perfume stash. Wasn’t a favourite of mine so won’t be repurchasing.

Innoxa Anti-Ageing Makeup Setting Spray* – a setting spray formulated with skincare ingredients such as aloe vera and cucumber. I love the smell of this – vsry fresh and soothing. As I have an oily t-zone, makeuo setting sprays are a must. This kept my makeup on longer than usual and kept the oils at bay for longer. I’m uncertain if I will repurchase as I think I prefer my Urban Decay one over this as it keeps my makeup on until it’s time to remove.

Avene Gentle Toner – alcohol- and oil- free, this was ok. Didn’t notice any amazing changes in my skin so won’t repurchase as I use witch hazel for my toner and its cheaper and does the trick.

Bioderma Sebium H2O – Bioderma’s cleansing waters are my favourites. It has gained holy grail, desert island status. Sebium is the range designed for acne-prone and oily skin but does have a very light floral fragrance. If, like me, you don’t like the fragrance, do as I do and opt for the original fragrance-free bottle from the Sensibio range. I already have three backup bottles of these stashed away.

Bioderma Sebium Pore Refiner – promises to tighten your pores and improve skin texture – not sure about that but it did provide a good base for my makeup and didn’t break me out. Undecided as to whether I will repurchase.

Mary Kay Signature Eye Primer – works just as well as my Urban Decay one but I can’t seem to find it anymore. Luckily, I still have an Urban Decay and Australis one to use up.

Smitten Cosmetics Whipped Foundation – not an empty but throwing it out. It came with my Violet Box and has separated in the tube so I was unable to use it :(

So there you have it! My first empties post and I hope it won’t be my last.

Review: DARE Temporary Hair Colour

Whilst growing out my dyed blonde hair, I still had an itch to dye my hair. To scratch this itch, I got my hands on some DARE Temporary Hair Colours in Neon Sherbert and Forbidden Grape. I’ve always been quite responsible in dying my hair “normal”, work-appropriate colours but seeing as I will probably never dye my hair again, I wanted to try some crazy colours and these temporary ones by DARE was perfect for that occasion.

20150719_152242

The process was very easy – wash my hair, skip conditioner, dry my hair then apply and comb through. The instructions says to wait for 30 minutes, but just to be safe, I opted for 45 minutes. Once the process time was up, I just rinsed it with some warm water.

DARE Temporary Hair Colour in Forbidden Grape

DARE Temporary Hair Colour in Forbidden Grape

Forbidden Grape turned out very subtly in my hair even though my hair has been lightened by bleach. It was noticeable in the light but still quite dark in indirect lighting.

Neon Sherbet, however, turned out very well! I loved it. I enjoyed having pink hair for a while.

DARE Temporary Hair Colour in Neon Sherbet

DARE Temporary Hair Colour in Neon Sherbet

The colours slowly wash out – taking about 15 washes to completely leave your hair. A word of warning with Forbidden Grape, due to the purple tone, I think it overprocessed my blonde and I started getting hints of green slowly coming through. As I was just colouring my ends, each bottle gave me two uses!

If you’re looking for some fun colours for your hair that washes out, have a look at the DARE Temporary Hair Colour range. Each 150ml bottle is $19.95 at Hairhouse Warehouse.

Product launch: Manicare x Liz Kelsh Next Generation brushes

Manicare Next Generation brushes

Manicare Next Generation brushes

Last week, I was lucky enough to accompany Livia as her plus one to the Manicare x Liz Kelsh makeup brushes launch at Ceru.

In between sips of champagne and bites of chicken satay sticks, I got the chance to check out the new brushes and have a play with them.

In collaboration with celebrity makeup artist, Liz Kelsh, Manicare has released 10 brushes with an affordable price tag to match – none are over $20!

Manicare Next Generation brushes

Manicare Next Generation brushes

The brushes launched are:

Manicare Next Generation brushes

Manicare Next Generation brushes

FOUNDATION BRUSH F#10 (RRP $16.95) – With a tapered finish, this allows for precise application of foundation especially around your nose and eyes. The brushes aren’t stiff which really helps it get into the tiny crevices on the face.

STIPPLING BRUSH F#11 (RRP $16.95) – a great duo-fiber brush for giving you that airbrushed look. As I don’t use foundation often, I love using stippling brushes when applying cream blush – it softens the look and gives a smooth, “glow from within” look.

POWDER BRUSH #F12 (RRP $15.95) – a great size for applying powder as a finishing touch.

BRONZING BRUSH #F13 (RRP $19.95) – this a dense brush which covers a large space great for bronzing your face quickly and even over the body.

CONTOURING BLUSH BRUSH F#14 (RRP $14.95) – angled with soft edges, this fits perfectly into the cheek hollows to get your contour on point. The angled brush also allows for precision blush application as well. And add to that – Liz showed us that we could flip it around and use the thinner end of the angled brush to apply highlight. Multitasking at its best!

BLENDING BRUSH E#10 (RRP $10.95) – an essential brush in any beauty arsenal, this blending brush is super soft and makes blending eyeshadow a breeze.

CONTOURING SHADOW BRUSH E#11 (RRP $11.95) – this has a slanted brush head making it easy to apply eyeshadow to your crease. As it is a bit dense, it picks up just the right amount of eyeshadow for blending.

Manicare Next Generation brushes

Manicare Next Generation brushes

BROW/EYE DEFINING BRUSH #E12 (RRP $10.95) – Made from synthetic fibres, this slanted brush is great for a soft look for filling in your brows. This would be a great starter brush for beginners at filling in brows. It also works well as an eyeliner brush – use a gel eyeliner for the best results.

SMUDGE BRUSH E#13 (RRP $10.95) – A great brush for a smokey eye look. It applies shadow easily to the bottom lash line for a “lived in” eyeliner look. Alternatively, I like to use this brush to smudge out eyeliner on the top lid. The brush hairs are dense so it makes smudging easy.

LASH/BROW BRUSH E#14 (RRP $10.95) – Another essential brush, in my opinion. The brow brush is great to brush those unruly brow hairs into place before filling them in and setting them with clear brow gel.No matter what mascara I use, my lashes always end up looking clumpy after application so a lash separator is always required to finish off my look.

The brushes feature lightweight handles, improved bristles, tapered ferrules and a modern design – matte black handles and silver ferrules.

Liz Kelsh used the brushes and demonstrated a 90’s bronzed supermodel look. Her favourite brush is the eye blending brush. Liz believes this is a must have brush to take your eye make up to the next level. I loved the fact that Liz used the contouring blush brush for two purposes – to contour and highlight!

Manicare Next Generation brushes

Manicare Next Generation brushes

These brushes are ideal for those starting their brush wardrobe, or for travel. The handles are short making it easier to get closer to the mirror for any detailed eye or face work. They will be making a home in my make up bag for travel!

Available this week from 1 April 2916 at Priceline, Target and Big W stores – ch-ch-check it out gaiz.

Review: Sleek MakeUP Solstice Highlighting Palette

Sleek has jumped onto the highlighting and strobing bandwagon and has added this little beauty to their line, the Solstice Palette ($14USD). I am a highlighter addict and when this palette showed on my doorstep, I was giddy with excitement!

Sleek MakeUP Solstice Highlighting Palette ($14USD)

Sleek MakeUP Solstice Highlighting Palette ($14USD)

It looks so luxurious with the gold packaging, but it is still light as a result of the plastic packaging. Inside, you get four different highlighters, a brush and a mirror – yasss! I haven’t tried the brush itself as it seems a little too dense for my liking. I like using a fan brush to apply my highlighters. The finishes of the highlighters also vary from baked powders to cream. The four shades are:

  1. Ecliptic – bronze cream
  2. Hemisphere – cool toned lavendar baked powder
  3. Subsolar – champagne powder
  4. Equinox –  rose gold powder
Sleek MakeUP Solstice Highlighting Palette ($14USD)

Sleek MakeUP Solstice Highlighting Palette ($14USD)

For a drugstore product, this is really worth its value. The pigmentation is insane and you really only need a little bit of product. If you’re confused as to how and what you should use each powder for, fear not, Sleek has provided instructions on the back of the box!

Subsolar provides the most beautiful glow and gives me a “lit from within” look – my favourite. For the price, this Sleek MakeUp Solstice Palette is a great product for beginners to strobing and the shades suit all skintones. The compact packaging makes it ideal for travelling and on the go.

Sleek MakeUP Solstice Highlighting Palette swatches ($14USD)

This has become one of my mostly reached make up product and I definitely recommend you take a look and swatch when you see it.

You can purchase this gorgeous palette from Sleek MakeUP’s website for $14.99USD (+shipping).

Review: Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation SPF20 and Fix + Protect Primer SPF25

Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation & Fix and Protect Makeup Primer

Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation & Fix and Protect Makeup Primer

Rimmel is just bringing out the goods lately. Reformulated by Rimmel, the new Match Perfection foundation ($18.95) promises to blur your imperfections for a poreless and luminous finish. The Rimmel Match Perfection foundation is available in 8 shades and contains SPF20. I was sent two shades, Sand and True Beige. For my olive skin, I was a mix between the two.

Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation swatches - Sand, True Beige // Fix and Protect Makeup Primer

Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation swatches – Sand, True Beige // Fix and Protect Makeup Primer

After trialing the foundation on numerous occasions, I have found that:-

  • It contains microshimmer which is not noticeable on skin; provides for that luminous finish.
  • Feels very hydrating. Rimmel promises up to 24 hours hydration.
  • Very blendable. It provides for medium coverage. It covered the redness in my cheeks and around my nose well without requiring me to cake on the foundation.
  • The packaging is glass and feels very sturdy. The pump allows me to control the amount of foundation I require.
  • The Rimmel Match Perfection foundation gives you a dewy finish. Oily skinned girls, like me, will definitely need to set with some powder or it transfers and/or breaks down during the day.
  • I like that it contains SPF20 which is enough for me when I am at work, usually indoors and only ever dashing across the road to grab lunch or a coffee.

Along with the Match Perfection Foundation, Rimmel has also released the Fix and Protect Makeup Primer (13.95) which contains SPF25. Despite being oily skinned, I haven’t taken to using primers yet (I am too lazy to add an extra step in my routine). This is probably one of a handful of primers I have used in my lifetime. The primer is lightweight, very runny (is this normal?) and is pearl white in appearance. Not sure how obvious it is in the swatch picture but there’s microshimmer there in the primer, which I dislike. Rimmel sells the shimmer as “light diffusing….built-in complexion beautifier…” but I’m not convinced. It does feel lightweight once applied and does what it’s supposed to do. However, the shimmer just puts me off. I know you can’t see the shimmer unless you’re looking at my face up close though…

You can check these out at Priceline, Target, Big W, Kmart, selected pharmacies and selected Coles and Woolworths.

Review: Rimmel London Lasting Finish Nude Collection by Kate Moss

Rimmel London Lasting Finish Nude Collection by Kate Moss $12.95

Rimmel London Lasting Finish Nude Collection by Kate Moss $12.95

This new nude collection released by Rimmel London in collaboration with Kate Moss includes five nude lipsticks with shades designed to be flattering options for all skin tones. You’re bound to find a nude shade that matches your skin tone, with the shades varying from the subtle apricots to cashmere beiges and rich toffees.

After trialling the lipstick over a week, I have concluded that they are moisturising, comfortable to wear and reaches opacity in a swipe or two. The finish is semi-matte, and despite the “up to 8 hours” wear claim, I found that they only lasted about 4 hours until I needed to reapply.

Packaging-wise, they come in a peachy nude plastic tube, with silver reflective detailing. The cap features the ‘Kate’ signature logo and the Rimmel crown embossed on top.

The shades are:-

Rimmel London Lasting Finish Nude Collection by Kate Moss $12.95

Rimmel London Lasting Finish Nude Collection by Kate Moss $12.95

#40 Pale Nude – cool peachy nude

#42 Apricot Nude – cool pink nude

#43 Tan Nude – yellow beige nude

#45 Rose Nude – warm peachy yellow nude

#48 Dark Nude – rose pink warm brown nude

Rimmel London Lasting Finish Nude Collection by Kate Moss $12.95

Rimmel London Lasting Finish Nude Collection by Kate Moss swatches $12.95 (#40, #42, #43, #45, #48)

My two favourite shades for my olive skin, pigmented lips are #45 and #48. The other three shades were just too light for my tanned skin and made me look like a corpse. The first three shades would definitely suit paler girls better.

You can purchase these shades from Priceline, Target, Kmart, Big W, Chemist Warehouse, selected pharmacies, selected Coles and selected Woolworths for $12.95.

My Summer 2016 Essentials

My Summer Essentials

My Summer Essentials

With the weather warming up, and Summer just around the corner, I have compiled this guide of beauty products to get your body ready for Summer!

Eco Sonya Foaming Body Wash $21.95 – buy
This foaming body wash is lemongrass and pink grapefruit scented, it is a great fruity and zesty body wash for summer days. If I forget to moisturise after my shower, my skin is still quite moisturised from the body wash itself.
Sanctuary Spa Green Lemon & Orange Blossom Body Scrub $14.99 – buy
Another zesty one but this has small granules for light body exfoliation – great for getting your body beach ready. The granules are not too big or rough making it really gentle for exfoliating the body and the scent is very fresh and calming!
Vaseline Intensive Care Spray Moisturiser $9.99 – available at major supermarkets and pharmacies
I get lazy during the Summer to stand in the heat and moisturise. It’s just simply too hot and stuffy to be spending 10-15 minutes moisturising. Well, Vaseline Intensive Care Spray Moisturiser to the rescue! It sprays on and covers your body in seconds, is absorbed quickly allowing you to get dressed almost immediately.
1000 Hour Softsole Express (not pictured) $8.99 – buy
A convenient and quick at home treatment to remove rough skin on your feet. It doesn’t require any scrubbing – you simply rinse your feet, apply the booties and soak for 90 minutes before washing it off. It peels the dead skin off your feet completely over 7 days. I was a bit hesitant using this not being sure whether it would work or not but it does work!
Beyonce Heat Kissed 50ml $49 – available at Priceline and Chemist Warehouse
A warm seductive scent with a hint of vanilla, and top notes of lychee and dragon fruit makes this my new favourite PM summer scent. It’s sweet to begin with but then the sandalwood and patchouli comes through and makes it a sultry scent.
Elizabeth and James Nirvana Black rollerball $32 – available at Sephora
To me, this is a sensual boozy vanilla scent. It goes so well with my skin chemistry and one I like to apply for those warm Summer evenings.
Natralus Paw Paw ointment $5.50-$14.95 – stockists
After the big fiasco involving Vaseline and Lucas Paw Paw ointment a few years back, I steered clear of basically all paw paw ointments. This one by Natralus is free from petroleum jelly and other petrochemicals, parabens and mineral oils. Its versatility has seen it make a permanent home in my handbag. For uses such as dry, cracked skin to sunburns and itchy skin, this has been a great quick fix for my heat rashes. It comes in a number of sizes – from a small 7g tube to a 75g tube.
Revo lip balms $4.99 – available at Priceline
Packaged like the infamous EOS balms, these Revo balms have been making a home in my handbag, car and desk. They come in a variety of colours matching to their respective scents – my favourite is the watermelon one. They’re moisturising and very easy to apply.
Gliders Non-Slip Sports Band Pony Tail Holders $4.49 – available at Priceline
Waterproof and great for those with an active lifestyle, these hair ties are a lifesaver. They do not budge! Great for when you’re swimming or hiking.

Review: Innoxa Marsala Satin Sheen Lipstick

 

Innoxa Marsala Satin Sheen lipstick $14.95

Innoxa Marsala Satin Sheen lipstick $14.95

Jumping onto the Pantone Colour of the Year bandwagon, Innoxa has released a limited edition lipstick in the shade, Marsala. When the Pantone Colour of the year was announced, I gotta admit, I kind of thought “Yeah, definitely not a colour I can pull off cosmetics wise!” Well, oops. This interpretation by Innoxa has made it a wearable, earthy tone which is perfect for the cooler weather. This is a nice mix of red and brown. It’s not too muddy on but has enough red to just brighten up your face.

Innoxa Marsala Satin Sheen lipstick $14.95

Innoxa Marsala Satin Sheen lipstick $14.95

It glides on smoothly, with no pulling at all, thanks to ingredients like jojoba oil and avocado oil. It feels comfortable and light on the lips and lasts about 4 hours until eating and/or drinking. See that swatch there? That’s just one swipe!

I love this shade; it wears so well against my skin tone and has made its way into my “work appropriate” lip stash.

Innoxa Marsala Satin Sheen lipstick $14.95

This limited edition lipstick is available at selected Myer, Priceline and pharmacies nationally for $14.95!
