Anastasia Beverly Hills lip gloss: St Tropez Review

If you’ve read my previous Anastasia Beverly Hills posts on Metallic Rose or Runway Red, you’ll already know how much I love Anastasia’s gloss formula. The thing I don’t love is that my Metallic Rose gloss broke, so not wanting to be without the shade, I headed into Sephora to pick up a new one.

Makeup: it’s an investment

While shopping around for a new Home and Contents Insurance plan, my hubby suggested I get an estimate on how much my valuables cost. Considering how much money, time and effort has gone into my makeup collection over the last two or so years, I decided I’d get an approximate value on my stash. After an hour of cataloging each item (not including skincare, brushes or almost-used up items) into a spreadsheet, I was shocked to discover my collection was three times the cost (RRP) of my initial guesstimate. *insert flying money emoji here*

Becca Sunlit Bronzer Bali Sands review

I’m never one to miss out on a bargain, particularly when it comes to makeup. Catch often has amazing deals on drugstore to high end makeup, and last week I saw they’d released a range of Becca products that were up to 45% off their retail value. The Becca Sunlit Bronzers were selling for $35 each, so I grabbed Bali Sands, the lightest shade in the range.

Lush Valentine’s Day ‘Love Box’ Unboxing

Lush has come out with a range of bath bombs, bubble bars, gift packs, knot wraps, lip products and more for this year’s Valentine’s Day collection. I initially had my eyes on the Tender is the Night naked shower cream, as well as the Tunnel of Love Soap. Upon discovering these two items came in a set with the Valentine’s Day lip scrub, as well as a hand cream scrub, I thought it was worth getting as a set.

Too Faced Chocolate Gold palette review & swatches

When I saw Too Faced was coming out with a chocolate gold collection, specifically the eyeshadow palette, I knew I had to grab it! I love my Bon Bons palette, and after hearing many good things about the item, I was counting down the days until it landed in Australia at Mecca Maxima.
