Urban Decay Primer Potion Review

I purchased the Urban Decay Primer Potion at the Mecca Maxima All Nighter event last month after hearing how well it works and just how popular it is in the beauty community.

Post-Meccaland Anti-haul

For all the exciting new launches at Meccland, there were others that bored me. Here are the items I’m not going to buy once launched online and in stores at Mecca Maxima!

Too Faced Life’s a Festival collection

The unicorn trend is so early-2017 and is starting to feel very childish. I love a bit of cutesy packaging from time to time, but this collection crosses a line. It’s a no from me. And the same goes for the Tarte mermaid collection launching at Sephora Australia soon. Can we jump off the mythical-creature-inspired makeup bandwagon? Please?

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*

Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in Backtalk Review

My best friend got married last week, and one of the “to-do’s” as a bridesmaid was to find a pink or red lipstick to wear, that wasn’t too bold, but also wasn’t nude. Her MUA suggested MAC, but as I’ve gone cruelty-free, MAC wasn’t an option.

Biggest Mecca Maxima comes to Brisbane

In the makeup community, Australia is usually one of the last places to get cool new releases…if we are lucky to get them at all. And even when we get new stores like Sephora, the bigger cities (Sydney and Melbourne) are the first places on the map to benefit. But on Friday, the largest Mecca Maxima ever opened it’s doors in the heart of Brisbane. Of course, I had to be there for the grand opening!

September Anti-Haul (Mecca Maxima Edition)

Mecca has just dropped a bunch of new releases, so I thought now was the perfect time to share what I won’t be picking up (which is probably good since holiday releases are just around the corner)!
