If you love Australian beauty products, then chances are you have probably heard of the latest edition to enter our country. Australis just released a contouring and highlighting palette for a mere $16.95! Now, let me tell you how HARD it was to find this in store. I went to a million different stores, and finally spotted the last one in stock at my local Priceline. Good news is though, that if you can't find it right now, don't sweat, because this is part of Australis's permanent range, yay! I've mentioned before that I'm a total contouring noob, and I honestly envy those who can make bronzer seem natural and not as if you rolled around in dirt all day. I was originally looking into the Anastasia Beverly Hills contouring palette, but couldn't justify spending that much money, so when Australis released a more affordable version, I knew I had to try it!

NBN Brush Kit

26 October 2014

Brushes. They can make or break your entire makeup look. I honestly believe that if you have good quality brushes, then your entire makeup look will fall into place, but on the other hand, if you have bad quality makeup brushes, you can be using a $100 foundation and it still won't look immaculate. Now, good quality doesn't exactly mean extremely expensive, I mean, I LOVE Real Techniques as you all know, and their range of brushes are affordable and well priced. But while I was at Priceline I came across the new Nude By Nature "Brush With Success" collection, and I couldn't help but be intrigued, and I knew that you guys would love a review so I decided to pick it up and try it for myself.

Detangling Brushes

16 October 2014

I'm a huge fan of detangling brushes. No, seriously, when I mean a huge fan, I MEAN a huge fan. Before I discovered the all mighty detangling hair brush I used to brush my hair with extreme force, and probably ripped out a couple of million strands of hair (no exaggeration), not only will I be damaging my hair, but I'll also be in excruciating pain, as if someone was y'know, ripping my hair out. Now, I've tried a fair few, and I thought "why not do a comparison blog post?", so here I am, bringing you three different detangling brushes, and deciding once and for all which hair brush wins. Today's tournament is between three brushes: the highly popular Tangle Teezer, the really nifty Michel Mercier Detangling Brush, and the brand spankin' new Lady Jayne Tangleze.

RT Miracle Complexion Sponge

13 October 2014

You would probably know by now that I love Real Techniques, and I also love their founder, Sam and Nic Chapman (they once answered my question in their video and I freaked out), so it's only natural that I was curious to see how their Miracle Complexion Sponge would work. Now, I always wanted to try the Beauty Blender, but $26 for a sponge? It may be worth it but I can never get myself to spend so much on a pink egg, so when Real Techniques released their own version for a measly $6.87 (from, I knew I had to try it. I would like to apologise in advance, because my sponge is a little dirty with foundation, but I haven't really found a good product to clean it with, so if you know one, then please let me know!

Models Prefer Eyeshadow Palettes

10 October 2014

Let me start from the beginning. I walked into Priceline one nice sunny day, and right in front of me were the Urban Decay Naked Palette's. Wait, what!? Since when did Priceline sell Urban Decay? Then I happened to look closer and I realised that they were actually Models Prefer eyeshadow palettes that looked exactly like the Naked palettes, except they were a million times cheaper. Intrigued, and because I knew you all would be interested, I decided to buy two out of three palettes. The Nude palette, and the Day to Night palette, and road test it to see how I would like it.

September Favourites!

8 October 2014

I'm 8 days late, but better late than never right? September was a really great and busy month (all of my months have been busy lately). One of my friends got married, which was so exciting, I started watching Friends from season 1, episode 1 and now I'm really emotional that they aren't making any new episodes. September was a very makeup-y month for me, and as you will see, I had a lot of makeup favourites as opposed to skincare. The reason for this is, Spring is usually very minimalist for me, makeup wise. I like having natural, dewy foundation, a slick of mascara, and a nice coral lip and I'm out the door. I always found that while I knew how to do the "no-makeup-makeup look" it never looked just quite right, until I used all these products together and now they've become staple products!
