♡ Product Empties & Reviews ♡

Monday, February 13, 2017

These are all the makeup, skincare and haircare products that I have used up. Clearly I really like them since I used them completely. Some of these are my absolute favourite products that are must haves to me. 

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder - Dim Light
This beautiful, luxurious feeling powder creates a flawless, airbrush finish to the skin and adds such a radiant glow. It blurs pores and makes the skin look smooth. I use it lightly on top of a setting powder, especially if my makeup is looking really matte and dull. Although this is a pricey product, it is a baked powder, so it lasts a long time.
Repurchase? Already have

Benefit Posiebalm
I really loved this lip balm and am sad to be out of it. It was really soft and moisturising on the lips and added such a pretty pink tint as well that livened up the face. I also liked the light rose fragrance to it.
Repurchase? Once I finish other lip balms 

Urban Decay All Nighter Long Lasting Setting Spray
This is the best setting spray I have used. It sets down all the powders on the face, melting them into the skin and taking away any cakiness. It also prolongs the wear of makeup making it last a lot longer.
Repurchase? Yes

Mac Prep & Prime Fix +
I used to use this everyday as a finishing spray, before discovering the Urban Decay one. This isn't the best thing for oily skin as it adds a lot of dewiness to the skin, which could accentuate oil, rather than prevent it. I did like the effect it left on the skin, as well as setting down the powders.
Repurchase? Probably not

Mac Lipstick - Faux
This satin finish lipstick is my most used of all time, I am currently on my third tube and use it almost every day. It's my perfect nude shade, that goes with any makeup look. It's a muted mauve that stays a significant amount of time on the lips, as well as providing moisture.
Repurchase? Forever will

Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer - Vanilla
I use this concealer every day as it provides really high coverage without being drying or thick. I apply in the dark inner corners of my eyes, on blemishes, scars and any other imperfections. I've been through quite a few of these and have it in two different shades.
Repurchase? Definitely

Maybelline Fit Me Concealer - 15 Fair
I use this in conjunction with the Nars concealer. As this one is a lot more lightweight, I use it under my eyes and in other areas to highlight. It also provides great coverage, but is more of an everyday formula.
Repurchase? Yes

Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer
I love this primer because it is so smoothing and hydrating on the skin. It is the perfect base for foundation, that allows it to easily glide on on top of it. It prevents fading and separating of makeup as well as prolonging the wear significantly.
Repurchase? Yes

Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation
This is my most used foundation. It's definitely my every day choice as opposed to my beloved Marc Jacobs Re(marc)able, with it's less coverage and lightweight feel. It provides such a radiant, subtle glow. It always applies well and lasts all day. I also love the fruity scent to it.
Repurchase? Definitely, can't live without this

Bourjois Healthy Balance Unifying Powder
This powder is so soft and provides extra coverage, as well as mattifying the skin and setting foundation and concealer. I love this one because it is lightweight and never looks cakey or too much.
Repruchase? Yes

Australis Fresh & Flawless Pressed Powder
This powder is very similar to the Bourjois one and the reason I also buy this one is because it is a cheaper alternative and has lighter shades available that suit my skin tone when I don't have fake tan on. I love it just as much and have gone through so many of these.
Repurchase? Yes

OGX Argan Oil of Morocco Shampoo & Conditioner
This is my favourite shampoo and conditioner. The ends of my hair can get really dry and I love how nourishing and moisturising this is. It always feels so soft and leaves my hair smelling really great too. 
Repurchase? Already have

Batiste Dry Shampoo - Blush
For days that I don't have time to wash my hair or just need a bit of a refresh, I use this. It soaks up any extra oils, taking away that greasy look and makes it a lot more manageable. It blends in well to my dark hair and is undetectable. Batiste have lots of different scents, but my favourite is the floral smelling Blush.
Repurchase? Yes

Moroccan Oil Treatment Original
I use this in damp hair after I've washed it, to moisturise and prevent split ends. As I don't like to add extra damage to my hair by blowdrying it, I usually let it dry naturally and having long hair, it can take a really long time to dry, but applying this throughout the hair, always cuts down the amount of time it takes to dry. I also use it after straightening to add shine and softness.
Repurchase? Yes

Soap & Glory Clean On Me Creamy Clarifying Shower Gel
I really loved this shower gel, it smells so nice and feels really moisturising on the skin, even after I get out of the shower, my skin feels soft and hydrated. I think it is great value for money being under $10 for 500ml.
Repurchase? Yes

La Roche-Posay Soothing Lotion
This toner provides a refreshing feel when swept over the face on a cotton pad. I use it before makeup to ensure my face is clean, as well as after I cleanse to make sure all the dirt and impurities have been removed. This has no fragrance and is super sensitive, which is what my skin needs.
Repurchase? Yes

Zoella Beauty Creamy Madly Dreamy Body Lotion
This body lotion was really hydrating on my skin and sunk in quite fast, leaving it feeling soft for a long time. The light, sweet scent is really nice and I really enjoyed this product.
Repurchase? Once I've used up other body lotions, yes

The Body Shop Aloe Calming Cream Cleanser
My skin is really sensitive to cleansers in particular, but my safe option is always The Body Shop. This was so gentle and cleansed the skin well, without stripping it and leaving that tight, dry feeling.
Repurchase? Yes

L'Oreal Paris Skin Perfection Correcting Day Moisturiser
This is probably my favourite moisturiser. I like to try a few different ones, but I always go back to this one because I can rely on it. It feels so soft and hydrating without the greasy feeling that some leave. It sinks into the skin really fast, which is perfect for before applying makeup. I also use it at night and my skin always feels really nice.
Repurchase? Eventually, yes

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water 
I've gone through over 10 of these and I think I will forever be buying these. This is my favourite product to efficiently remove makeup, as well as using to quickly cleanse the face before makeup. It never stings my eyes or irritates my skin. It doesn't require any rinsing, yet doesn't leave any kind of product residue. There are many micellar waters that I have tried, but this has always been my favourite and it's also really affordable.
Repurchase? Already have multiple backups!

Thank you for reading :)

♡ Cute Room Decor Touches ♡

Wednesday, February 01, 2017

I love adding cute little decor items to my room to liven it up and to make it feel more me. Simple additions can make it feel more homey and personal. You can easily decorate a space that expresses your unique style and personality. These are a few things found in my room.

♡ Bath & Body Works Candles ♡

Saturday, January 28, 2017

I have a deep love for Bath & Body Works candles. They have 3 wicks that really project the scent throughout the whole room, as well as burning evenly throughout the large candle. I love how they all have cute designs on them and there are always new collections, however some of the same scents reoccur from time to time and it will have a new design. I prefer sweeter scents, as you could probably tell from the names of these.


♡ MAC Lipstick Collection & Swatches ♡

Tuesday, January 24, 2017

Mac would have to be my favourite brand of lipsticks, with its' incredibly large range of all different shades and finishes, there is always something to suit the occasion. I've seemed to have collected quite a few and am still always on the lookout for new ones.


♡ Makeup Brush Must Haves ♡

Friday, January 13, 2017

There are so many makeup brush brands to choose from, it can be hard to know which are good quality and worth getting. They can vary in price from just a few dollars to even hundreds per brush. I've acquired a collection of a few different brands that I trust including Zoeva, Sigma, Real Techniques and Elf. These are my favourite brushes that I tend to use everyday, that all have their own purpose. I keep all my brushes on my vanity for easy access and so I can see all the ones I have. I find it much easier to separate them into eye and face brushes as the smaller ones can tend to get lost between the larger brushes. I got these holders from IKEA and they are the perfect size and look really cute.


♡ Best Of Beauty 2016 ♡

Tuesday, January 10, 2017

2016 was a big year, the highs were high and the lows were low, pretty much all the feels for me. Beauty wise, it was great! So many product releases and new favourites that I have acquired, along with some trusty favourites that I've stayed loyal to for quite a while. These are all my ultimate makeup must haves of the year. 
Please keep in mind that all prices are in AUD.


♡ 50 Random Facts About Me ♡

Sunday, January 08, 2017

I decided to do a more personal post so you can get to know me a little bit.
I hope you enjoy and don't find me too weird 😋

  1. I have an extreme obsession with the tv show Friends. I got the dvd box set for Christmas a few years ago and I've watched every episode at least 10 times. I can quote any part of it. My favourite characters are Chandler and Rachel
  2. You know how some people crack their knuckles? I crack everything. My wrists, neck, back, ankles, anything I can and I don't care if people look at me disgusted, I'll do it
  3. I'm the fussiest eater ever and I hate it. I don't like any vegetables besides potato, I will eat lettuce and carrot, but only on specific Subways, the only fruit I eat are apples, bananas and avocado. I don't like any type of sauce, I don't even like soft drinks or coffee
  4. I'm such a perfectionist, I hate if things aren't straight or in line. Mess makes me stressed, I don't like having things out of place or large piles of things thrown together. Having my room clean and bed made makes me happy
  5. I always play music in the shower, it just makes it more fun and it's a good way to measure the time you've been in there for 


♡ MAC Mariah Carey Collection ♡

Thursday, January 05, 2017

Have you ever seen anything more beautiful?! The glamorous gold and sparkling packaging of the new MAC Mariah Carey collection is just too dreamy too resist. At least for me, the second I saw it online, I was counting down the days until the release. I had to get just a few things. Tempted also by the stunning eyeshadow quads and the coral blush, I decided to limit myself to just a lipstick and lip liner, which I am happy with both. I must say though, I was definitely swayed mostly by the pretty packaging, but I will no doubt, be getting wear out of them, fearing the day the limited edition products come to an end.


♡ Fragrance Collection ♡

Tuesday, January 03, 2017

Slowly overtime I have built up this collection, most of the perfumes have been gifts, however I have also bought a few of them myself. I like being able to choose a different scent for different occasions or depending on how I feel that day. There are some that I consider for more every day wear and others for special events or days. To me, the bottle is almost as important as the scent itself because I like to display them. I keep them stored in this beautiful mirrored tray, that I purchased from a store called Gifts For You. Behind the perfumes, I stand all the Victoria's Secret Body Mists on top of empty candle boxes, so they can all be seen. (Candles shown: Bath & Body Works: Buttercream Icing & Pumpkin Pecan Waffles)
