Hi beauties! Ever since NYX arrived in Australia, there has been so much hype around their products so I couldn't resist but give into temptation and purchase some of their famous Extra Creamy Round Lipsticks from my local Target. I love the fact that lipstick can instantly brighten up your look, so I decided to purchase some beautiful bright shades - Indian Pink (which is a gorgeous coral) and Strawberry Milk (which reminds me of Barbie pink).

When Chemist Warehouse had 50% off cosmetics last month, I could not resist but pick up a few new goodies to try. Lucky for me (or unlucky for my wallet - depending on what way you look at it), my local Chemist Warehouse actually had a lot of stock for the first time ever! So, I ended up purchasing quite a few items - including this Rimmel, Wake Me Up ConcealerI had heard a lot about this particular concealer from YouTube so I wanted to see what all the fuss was about.

I really love the fact that there are now more and more companies producing locally made products - one of those is Scout Cosmetics that make a whole array of makeup which is cruelty free and made in Australia! (They make nail polish as well and you may recall that I did a review on those last week.)

I was recently given the opportunity to try their mineral lipsticks. Since I have been wearing them on a daily basis for the last couple of weeks, I thought that was ample time for me to be able to form and opinion and share my thoughts with you.

Given how much damage I have inflicted to my hair by constantly bleaching it, I try and stay clear of heat styling tools as much as possible in order to try lessen the damage. That means that during summer, I barely every blow-dry my hair. 

However, in winter it becomes near impossible to do this - I have very thick hair so to let it air dry in winter pretty much guarantees that I will get a cold since it takes forever to air dry. For that reason, I regularly blow-dry my hair during the cold winter months. 

So, when Indola Wonder Blow Dry promised to speed up my blow dry, while providing heat protection, detangling and banishing frizz, I was curious to give it a shot - because, let's face it, what girl doesn't want to spend less time drying their hair?

Hi beauties! Today I thought I would do a quick review of one of my favorite drugstore foundations at the moment. This Revlon colorstay foundation is formulated to work on combination and oily skin so I thought that it was right up my alley given that my t-zone has turned into an oil producing hot spot lately.

This is my first introduction to Scout Cosmetics nail lacquers - and I must admit that I am impressed. Not only are they 100% Australian owned and made but they are also fab quality! 

Scout Cosmetics uses, what they call the '5 free' nail lacquer formula to combine style, rich colours, shine and durability without exposing nails to harmful ingredients like Formaldehyde, DBP, Toluene, Formaldehyde Resin, Camphor or Parabens.

Hi Beauties! Today I am going to talk about my latest discovery from Schwarzkopf. Given that I am not a natural blonde, I regularly put my hair through a lot in order to get the ash blonde shade that I love - this of course comes at a cost and means that my poor locks are incredibly dry and damaged.

The Keratin Restore Blonde Mask claims to repair internal structure of the hair and strengthen it so I was excited to give it a go and see how well it works for my hair.
