Nail of the Day – Sally Hansen Salon Manicure in Kook-a-Mango

  I am loving this polish so much!  To be honest I haven’t really tried too many Sally Hansen polishes and when I attended the Beauty Heaven Open Day we were treated to a lovely manicure thanks to Sally Hansen and I fell in love with this colour! It’s an all-in-one so no top coat or base coat were used and I was very impressed when my nails stayed chip-free for almost the whole week. It’s actually a very similar shade to a few of the other polishes I have but the  ...

July Lust Have It

Recieved my July Lust Have It pack when I arrived home from work yesterday. I have to say, this is the first month I haven’t been all that impressed with Lust Have It as they seem to have had some big customer service and mail out issues. Quite a number of people received their packs a week or so ago or earlier in the week so I’m sure many of you have already seen what’s in this month’s pack. Products were OK but I wasn’t blown away by this month as I have been  ...

Freebie with Women’s Day

Sorry for not posting this earlier but I only discovered this when I dropped into my local Woolworths on Friday night and had such a busyweekend I totally forgot to share! 🙁 I think the offer was only on last week but it was a great chance for me to pick up a few of the Mirenesse Pearl Shadow trios at a bargain price. There were six to collect so I decided to get three (I already have one  of these and am totally in love with their smooth texture and pigmentation). They didn’t  ...

Beauty Heaven Open Day!

Yesterday, I was so lucky to be included in the Beauty Heaven Open day here in Melbourne! I still can’t believe I was lucky enough to win tickets and it was every bit as amazing as I had hoped. The BH ladies were all so lovely and friendly and it was sort of surreal to see them in person, I felt a bit star struck at first – these girls are rockstars in my eyes and totally have my dream job! 🙂  The Avon makeup artists working their magic! There were 16 of us in total (8 winners  ...

Nail of the Day – Ulta3 Nail Polish in Mulberry

I was so excited to see this gorgeous colour polish included in this month’s Bella Box! It’s somewhere between a burgundy and a purple and I really like the look of a dark nail without having to be a black (which washes out my pasty winter hands horribly)! I made sure I applied it well this time, using two coats and a topcoat and allowing each coat to fully dry between applications and I’m really pleased with how well this colour has lasted so far. I have found these  ...

July Bellabox

I love arriving home from work to find a parcel awaiting me (and let’s be honest, this happens more often than not)! Last night there was a little blue box on the bench which means Bella Box has arrived and wow did they outdo themselves this month – 5 full size products, 3 samples and a new cosmetic bag! Here’s what I found when I opened my parcel:    I have to say, the cosmetic bag feels a bit cheap and nasty but it’s a bonus so it’s not a big deal  ...

Nail of the Day – Rimmel Double Decker Red

A few weeks ago I came across a great freebie offer on the Kotex Faceboox page for a free Rimmel Lasting Finish nail polish. You all know how I love a freebie so I clicked away and then last week a little parcel arrived! I really loved the colour I was sent, I’m a big fan of Rimmel products and this was a colour I didn’t already have in my collection. It’s a lovely classic red, and different to my other reds which tend to be more on either the blue based side or a bit more  ...

Mini Haul From the USA – MAC

So I know this may not be all that exciting but I thought I’d share with you two of my Holy Grail products I stocked up on while my sister was in Hawaii last month. In the end, I decided not to go too crazy with products as I will be heading back there myself in October so until then I will be making a giant wishlist of things to try and buy! It’s crazy how much cheaper things are there so I had to use the opportunity to pick up a few things to see me through till I go away  ...

June Empties

Sorry for the delay in posting this beauties – been a hectic week! It’s already the end of June which means we’re half way through the year! Wow! I can’t believe how quickly the months are flying by but I am so excited about what the rest of the year has in store. This month there seemed to be a lot of products in my bin, I think there were quite a few which were almost gone in May so it didn’t take much for them to be completely used up. I’m also on a  ...
