TIME FOR A MAC HAUL

When a good friend of mine was heading off on holidays to Hawaii, I knew I had to take advantage and asked her very nicely if she could pick up a few things for me from MAC while she was there. I just can’t get over the crazy markups on cosmetics here in the land of Oz!ย Luckily she was most obliging andย happy to do some extra shopping on my behalf! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Granted, with the falling Aussie dollar the savings weren’t quite as good as they once were but I still stocked up on a few of my  ...

QUICK TIP > CLEANING STUBBORN MAKEUP BRUSHES

I’m sure many of you are reading this and thinking “who doesn’t know this trick?”, but up until recently I had no clue! I’m not even sure how I missed the memo about this but I had just been using my foundation brushes until I couldn’t clean them anymore with regular brush cleansers and then tossing them away – I cringe at the thought! I stumbled across this tip very randomly on YouTube and it has been such a lifesaver I thought it was worth  ...

VALENTINES DAY > CURRENT LOVES

In honour of Valentines Day today and all things LOVE I thought it was about time I shared some of the things I have been madly in love with lately! Here we go: Shanghai Suzy Lipstick in Miss Courtney Electric Flamingo It took me a few months of having this in my collection before I really began to use it often. A friend had a stunning pink on her lips one night at dinner and what do you know – it was this baby! I whipped it out of my lippie collection quick smart and have been hooked  ...

GIFT TIME AT CLINIQUE

Whatโ€™s that I hear? The sound of another Clinique gift with purchase – well obviously Iโ€™m in! If youโ€™ve followed GPG for a while you know I tend to go a little crazy for Clinique Gift Time. Since I use Clinique products anyway on a regular basis (their Clarifying Lotion is a total skin saver for my oily self), I figure I may as well stock up and score some freebies at the same time – win! I love using the little trial sizes for my gym bag and I couldnโ€™t resist the adorbs  ...

THE AMAZINGNESS THAT IS SHANGHAI SUZY

Sometime early last year I was casually scrolling through my Facebook feed when I stumbled across a post from a high school friend who was starting her own lipstick range. Super gutsy I thought – jumping out on a limb and backing yourself at something most people wouldn’t dream of doing.Fast forward twelve months and Shanghai Suzy (under the guidance of it’s gorgeous founder Jo) is fast emerging as one of the biggest brands to watch in 2014 – an even more amazing  ...

My Gym Bag Essentials

Back into my usual workout routine this week after a little too much time off (and too many treats) over the Christmas break and I thought I would share with you my beauty essentials that make those boot camp sessions that little bit more bearable! After quite a few years going to the gym/bootcamp I’ve narrowed it down to just a few products that save me time and leave me looking slightly more presentable when I’m done. Here goes: Carmex Strawberry Lip BalmThis is amazing for  ...

2013 Favourites

After a massive cull to prevent this post taking you all three days to read, I finally selected my absolute, hands-down, favourite products from 2013. Even now, Iโ€™m resisting the urge to throw a few more back into the mix for good measure – eek! Drumroll pleaseโ€ฆVictoriaโ€™s Secret Shiny Kiss Lip Gloss in Candy BabyI have a bit of a stash of these going on and find these to be the perfect gloss. Non-sticky but thick enough that it lasts on my lips, this can be applied on itโ€™s own or  ...

Time for some December empties…

Thereโ€™s something satisfying about getting to the end of the month and tipping out my bin to see all the products Iโ€™ve used up โ€“ plus it keeps Mr GPG happy since I no longer have empty containers lying around! Iโ€™ve decided Iโ€™m on a bit of a mission this year to use up the tons of sample tubes and sachets I have been hoarding (yep, there really is no other word for it โ€“ whoops) from sample boxes. I have a funny little thing where I like to save them for โ€œtravellingโ€ but letโ€™s be honest โ€“  ...

Back to MAC (again)!

I feel like I must be going through my MAC products so quickly – every few months I seem to be making a trip to my local MAC counter to trade in my empties for another lippie! Not that there are any complaints from me at all! This time around I decided to pick more of a statement colour as I have been playing around with a bold lip more and more these days. I had seen Girl About Town pop up time and time again in other bloggers favourites and I’ve found on my lips a bold pink  ...
