Anastasia Beverly Hills lip gloss in Toffee

Toffee is my fifth Anastasia Beverly Hills lip gloss, thanks to the Sephora 50% off sale. This is one of the more neutral shades in the collection, and would suit most skin tones – including us fair girls!

Anastasia Beverly Hills lip gloss: Moon Jelly

Just as I had suspected, after hearing the Anastasia Beverly Hills glosses would no longer be sold in Sephora Australia stores, a bunch of shades where part of the Sephora 50% off mid year sales. As these lip glosses have my favourite formula, adding a few more shades to my collection at half price was too good to pass up. Here are my thoughts on the first shade, Moon Jelly. You can also read my review of the formula here.

Moon Jelly is an iridescent, semi-opaque shade with pink, blue and purple shimmer reflects. Like the other high-shine glosses I own from the range, the shimmer/glitter particles don’t have any grit to them.

Moon Jelly isn’t as pigmented as the other shades I own, however this is to do with its colour, rather than a difference in formulation. You wouldn’t really want an opaque white shimmer lip gloss anyway (or at least I wouldn’t)!

While I enjoy wearing the shade on its own, I feel this would look even better as a lip topper, and is worn best when paired with any cool-toned lipstick, particularly pinks.

What do you think of this shade? Do you prefer coloured lip glosses that can be worn on their own, or lip topper shades such as Moon Jelly? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Aurora Glow Kit Review

When the Moonchild Glow Kit from Anastasia Beverly Hills went on sale at Sephora, I felt like I needed to grab the sister palette to complete my collection (which was also on sale).

Anastasia Beverly Hills Moonchild Glow Kit Review

I’ve had my eyes on this highlighting palette for months now (I know, very late to the party), but the $72 AUD price tag stopped me from purchasing it sooner. However, when Sephora had their 50% off sale and this item was included in the line up, all bets were off. I purchased the Anastasia Beverly Hills Moonchild Glow Kit for $36, and couldn’t be happier with the variety of pastel colours included in the palette!

Lush ‘The Experimenter’ Bath Bomb Review

I rarely get to try Lush’s bath range, so when I stayed in a hotel with a bath, I raced down to Lush to pick out a bath bomb and bubble bar to test out. After looking at which bath bombs looked the prettiest, as well as having a scent I enjoyed, I settled on The Experimenter for my first bath art.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Ethereal Light

In my Post-Meccaland Wishlist blog, I said I wanted to purchase one of the Hourglass Ambient Lighting minis when they launched in stores. Unfortunately the minis only come in four out of the six full-sized shades, so I decided to spend the extra $30 a pick up a full-sized Ambient Lighting Powder in Ethereal Light (that turned out to be much better value if you look at the cost per gram). Here are my thoughts on the most expensive finishing powder I own!

Australis Oh 2 Glow Foundation Review

The two foundations I currently own aren’t cheap – my Nars Sheer Glow set me back $68, and my Josie Maran Vibrancy Argan Oil cost $66, so I’ve been wanting to find a drug store alternative that’s just as good, if not better. I purchased the Australis Oh 2 Glow Foundation at 50% off a few weeks ago for about $12.50. Even at it’s full price ($23.95), it’s still almost a third of the cost of my Nars or Josie Maran! Here are my thoughts on this new foundation.
