December Lust Have It

With the hectic few days surrounding Christmas now over I finally have a chance to sit down and catch up on a few blog posts. Last week my December edition of Lust Have It arrived and I was a tad dissappointed with its contents this time around. It had been hyped on the LHI Facebook page but didn’t quite live up to expectations sadly. The products were good, but it feels like very similar to products we have seen before and nothing really stood out to me. Here’s what  ...

MUA Haul #2

A few weeks ago MUA had 35% off and free shipping for online orders to celebrate reaching 35,000 Facebook fans and I was so excited to pick up some more things from their range. I placed an order from them earlier in the year and the Love Hearts Lip Balms now sit on my desk and get used every day so I have been really pleased with the products I have tried from this purse-friendly brand so far. I placed three orders and was planning to do a post once they all arrived but there has been a  ...

Manicare Beauty Blogger Competition

A few months ago now I entered the Manicare Beauty Blogger Competition and was very lucky to be selected as one of the finalists. I wasn’t the final winner (you can check out Kristina’s blog here, I have loved reading it) but it was such a fun comp to be a part of and the lovely people at Manicare sent me a prize pack all the same! I will be stocked up on false eyelashes for a while! My pack included: Manicare Cosmetica Tear Drop Sponge Glam Eyes by Manicare False Lashes in  ...

Beautyheaven Secret Santa Package

This year I was lucky enought to participate in the Beautyheaven forum Secret Santa. This isn’t organised officially through BH but by a lovely group of the ladies on the forum. In previous years I have watched these threads and not participated so when I saw Blossy77 was organising it I knew it was something I had to be a part of! Our limit was $20 (not including postage) but I’m sure many of the beauties couldn’t help but spoil their Secret Santas, I know I was really  ...

Hawaii Haul: Other random products I picked up!

I’ve finally come to the last post of my Hawaii Haul and it makes me a bit sad actually – I want to go back already! 😉 Right around the corner from our hotel was a Ross store. Ross seems to sell quite an assortment of brands that have come from other department stores at a great discount so I was able to pick up a few perfumes much cheaper than I could’ve bought them at Sephora. Viva La Juicy 30mlUS$29.99 (Australian retail is about $57)I couldn’t decide which of  ...

Hawaii Haul: Drugstore

It’s not just high end cosmetics that are way cheaper in the US, most drugstore brands are about half the price they are here too so I made sure to pick up some of my favourites, as well as a few newbies to try. Duo Eyelash Adhesive in BlackUSD$4.19 (Australian retail is $15.95)I have had the clear one of these for a while and though I don’t tend to wear false lashes very often I think this black one would be better for a klutz like me as it would hopefully lool like eyeliner  ...
