Festive red lip line-up

As someone who doesn’t love wearing a red lip all that often, I was surprised to find a few in my collection. Today I’m running through their formulas, showing comparison swatches, and sharing my favourite ways to rock a red lip (however rare that is!)

Too Faced Totally Cute palette: review, swatches & comparison

Funny story, I bought this palette a few months ago, and returned it even before trying it out. I talked myself out of it, and said I didn’t need it for the $52 price tag. Needless to say, I’m glad I gave it a second chance!

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Volume 3 Review

I didn’t even need to swatch this in person when it released in stores. As the proud owner of last year’s holiday palette (Volume 2), I knew I had to pick up this year’s Hourglass Ambient Lighting palette. Volume 3 is the same as it’s predecessors – it’s got luxurious packaging and powders to match, and of course its steep price tag of $117 AUD ($80 USD).

Mario Badescu Facial Spray With Aloe, Herbs & Rosewater Review

I discovered this little bottle of skin-loving goodness when at the Brisbane Mecca Maxima Grand (re)Opening. I’ve used almost a third of the bottle in just over a month, so that’s a good indication of how this review is going to go!

Don’t think I’ve used up so much of a skincare product so fast!

Mario Badescu is a cruelty-free skincare brand that has pricing close to drugstore products, but performs as well, if not better than high end items! I selected the smaller sized bottle (118mL) and paid only $9 AUD, which is really cheap for what you get. They also have a 236mL size for $17, which I’ll be purchasing next time.

The most important ‘must-have’: cruelty free status

It smells of rosewater and feels beautiful against the skin. I love using this as an all-over mist throughout the day, and I definitely feel like it boost my skin’s appearance. I’ve also noticed less breakouts while using this product.

If you love good, easy, cruelty-free skincare, I highly recommend trying this. It can be used to set makeup, soothe or give skin a quick boost. You can spray it on your face, hair or body, making it the perfect all-rounder skincare product.
