Project Pan

So after looking over my makeup and beauty collection on the weekend I have decided it’s about time I tried to cut back on the exorbitant amount of products I have and embark on a Project Pan! I did this for a few months last year and it was great so I know I can do it. This time I am upping the ante and making it a Project 30 Pan (last years was a Project 10 Pan). I have so many makeup products that are half used so it will be a good way of forcing myself to not buy anymore for a while and  ...

ModelCo Eye Shadow GWP with this week’s Grazia

It seems to be the time for magazine freebies, no complaints from me! This week’s Grazia comes with a free ModelCoEyeshadow trio. This time I picked up the Smokey Eye palette as I had already collected the Bronze one last year when the same products were a GWP. There is also a third palette I haven’t got yet (I think it’s called ‘Island’?) but it has a brighter turquoise colour and I didn’t think I would be as likely to use that so sticking to the more  ...

Mirenesse Velvet Lip Lift Moisture Shine

I love when magazines offer a freebie and it’s often an excellent way to try a new product at a discounted price. I’ve been able to try quite a few Mirenesse products this way and they retail for a much higher price than the magazines themselves. Last week’s issue of Women’s Day came with one of 10 shades of their Velvet Lip Lift Moisture Shine Lip Gloss which normally sells for $39.95 (although there are always good specials on the Mirenesse website). I  ...

Nail of the Day – Rimmel Sky High

Another colour I am loving on my nails at the moment is a bright turquoiseο»Ώ. It makes a nice change from my usual summer coral or pink and looks great against a tan! I have always been a big fan of turquoise jewellery – I wear a turquoise beaded bracelet almost every day and have been on the search for the perfect nail polish shade to compliment it. I have been a big fan of these Rimmel polishes (as readers of this blog well know) so when I saw this shade I had to stop and pick it up. I  ...

Clinique Gift Time at Myer

I love clinique GWPs! I use quite a few products by Clinique (and am always trying new ones) so what better time to stock up than when I get a free gift bag filled with Clinique freebies? For birthdays and Christmas I often ask for Myer vouchers so that way I can get my skincare essentials without having to shell out a large amount of my own money. I first heard about this gift last week and couldn’t wait to race down to the shops on the 22nd to shop up a storm. I picked up my  ...

Nail of the Day – OPI Charged Up Cherry

I thought since I included this in the products I was loving post it definitely needed to be added as a Nail of the Day. I really love this colour and often find myself going back to it when I’m looking for a bright pop of colour. I could probably even get away with one coat of this as it has pretty good coverage but I prefer to do two and a coat of my OPI Top Coat for a colour that lasts for days without chipping or flaking.

February I Love This Box

I finally got a chance to pick up my February I Love This Box from the Post Office yesterday and I was so excited to open it. I have to say, this has been on of my favourite beauty boxes and they have been consistently impressive every month. They seem to have quite a good selection of different products, many of which are full size.  Here’s what was in my box this month: Elizabeth Arden Red Door Perfume Mini This was a decent size sample (10ml) and comes in such cute packaging.  ...

Priceline Sisterhood Beauty Club

So on last night (Thursday) I trotted off down to my local Priceline to find out more about the beauty club they have been promoting. I have been a member of the Priceline club for many years and really enjoy the vouchers I get sent for spending so much in their store so I was keen to see what would be different about this new club. I liked the way it was specifically targeted at beauty and included samples and VIP events. There is a $25 joining fee for this club but it is supposed to be  ...

February Bellabox

February Bellabox arrved today! I have really likes having these sample boxes quite spread out over February rather than all towards the end of the month like they are usually. Sorry about the poor photo quality – it was storming outside when I was trying to take these photos and they were comming up really dark. Again, Bellabox also had a Valentine’s theme. Here’s what I got: Star and Rose Confetti Soap Roses This is a gorgeous products and I am looking foward to a long  ...
