‘You’ll Like This’ Christmas Gift by Go-To Skincare

IMG_0647

Go-To Skincare is a fairly new brand created by beauty editor and author Zoë Foster Blake. The brand makes all natural skincare that aims to suit all skin types and take the confusion out of skincare by selling products that are easy to use and do what they claim. The brand isn’t cheap but it isn’t anywhere near luxury-priced skincare. Currently, Go-To can only be purchased online which has always made me hesitant to purchase, however they are currently selling special discounted packs for Christmas so I thought I would give it a try.

I love all the Christmas limited edition beauty packs that are released each year and have been really impressed by all the Christmas-themed candles, diffusers and fragrances around this year. I’ve been really getting into candles lately so I decided to buy the limited edition Circa Home Christmas candle called ‘Holiday Bliss’. Continue reading

‘Australis AC on Tour- contouring and highlighting kit’ full review and swatches

096

While I like to dabble in makeup trends and try out new products, one thing I’ve never really been able to get into is contouring. But, when the new Australis ‘AC on Tour- contouring and highlighting kit’ was released, I thought it would be a great opportunity to give contouring a go without spending a fortune.

Holiday sets 2014: Nars ‘digital world lip pencil set’, Smashbox ‘on the rocks photo finish primer duo’ and Bare Minerals ‘touch up to glow set’

110

The best part of the year for makeup-buying is definitely Christmas when brands release their limited edition holiday gift sets. Yesterday, Mecca had their first drop of their holiday collections with sets from Nars, Smashbox, Bare Minerals, Glam Glow, Too Faced and their own in-house brand being released. Apparently they have another drop date (I’m unsure of the exact date) where other brands will be releasing sets too. I grabbed these three holiday sets bright and early as I know lots of the sets sell out on their first day and many are already sold out online. Here is a quick look at the products I bought.

Chokers + metallics = party party party

IMG_0459

On the weekend, I went to a cocktail birthday party. The outfit was all very last-minute after a few mini-crises resulted in some last minute changes; but I think it still turned out looking pretty funkeh fresh (if I do say so myself) due to some beautiful accessories and shiny shiny makeup.

The Essentials: Flares, Mules and Highlighter

043

Today I bring you a [possibly controversial] outfit choice consisting of patch-work flared denim, brown leather mules and very shiny makeup. I think, like many of my outfits, the star of this look is the denim and these jeans make me feel very 70s Farah Fawcett as soon as I put them on.

Currently Wearing: YSL ‘rouge volupte shine #19′

IMG_0393I know I really like a lipstick when I wear it for more than a week, every single day. I have so many lipsticks lined up on my dresser, that I like to change it up pretty regularly. Enter my new YSL ‘rouge volupte shine’ in #19- this lipstick delivers everything I could ever ask for in a sheer[ish] lip colour and I’ve been wearing it non-stop.

The Best Jeans in the World?!

014

If I had to name 10 inanimate things that I love, denim would be listed because I think it’s just so great. I feel like I could just keeping buying pair after pair of jeans and never truly feel complete; you can never have enough denim! Going along with the whole ‘top 10′ trend here, if I had to name my top 10 brands, Sass & Bide would easily make the cut so it should be pretty obvious that denim+Sass&Bide=the best pair of jeans ever created.
