Hi Beauties! Hope you're having a great week so far. I am currently sitting at my computer unable to move as a result of my 12km charity fun run I completed on Sunday. I have not been so sore in years!

Even though I quite liked the Clinique Even Better Foundation, I thought it was a bit too heavy for my skin. The lovely Clinique sales assistant at my local Myer recommended that I try the Superbalanced foundation as it would better suit my needs. To my surprise, she was right and I have fallen in love with this product.

When I was in the US recently, I discovered a brand which I had not seen in Australia - Buxom. I had heard so much about the brand on YouTube so I was excited to try out one of their products. 

Hey beauties! I hope that you are having a fabulous week so far. Mine got a whole lot better when I finally received news that I got an awesome new job. The interview process was so long and tedious but it was all worth it now that I am going to be moving to a larger company full of exciting opportunities. Anyways, before I go onto a tangent, I want to tell you about a fantastic product that I have loved using recently.

I have very thick hair that is hard to style and control so I avoid using a curling iron at all costs because it just takes hours to curl it all. Plus, my hair is naturally straight so getting a curl to hold for more than one hour is a task in itself.

Today I thought that I would do a review on a product which I think is perfect for someone just starting out with makeup. I first discovered Coastal Scents whilst watching YouTube videos and based on those reviews, I decided to purchase the 88 Ultra Shimmer Palette and the Warm Palette. 

I noticed that a vast majority of the reviews about this product on YouTube are sponsored so I decided to do a quick review to offer a fresh perspective and honest opinion as I paid for this product with my own money.

It has been a while since I have done one of these posts and that was mainly because I simply didn't purchase any new nail polishes for a few months. Whilst I was at Big W the other week I gave in to temptation when I saw these Cover Girl Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Polishes for only $2.00 each! (Their usual retail price is $6.95)

With the cooler weather fast approaching, I needed a product to help keep my lips in tip-top shape. I decided to purchase this Lush lip scrub as I had been lusting over it for some time and had heard some great reviews on it. 

This might come as a bit of a surprise but this is actually my very first Lush purchase. Even though I like the way their products smell, I have never been drawn to the brand because they are pretty pricey and I would much rather buy makeup instead. That's just me, though as I have plenty of friends that would highly disagree.

Ever since I was around 14 years old I have been a fan of Australis cosmetics. Not only are they super affordable but I have come to expect great quality from them as well. The latest Australis palette that I have added to my collection is from their Paparazzi Perfect collection and is called "Totally Busted".

It is not every day that I come across a product that I absolutely hate. My latest Revlon purchase is such a poor product that I felt compelled to share my thoughts as your trusted beauty blogger. The whole reason behind starting this blog was to provide honest reviews to you, and that is what I am doing today.

Hey beauties! I have seen a few of my fave beauty blogs from the UK do a 'Payday Wish List' post so I thought I would join in the fun.

Here is a list of the products which have caught my eye this month and which I would really love to add to my makeup collection.

Since the cooler weather has started, I have noticed that my lips have started getting dry. In order to combat this, I decided to try out Nature's Care Paw Paw lip balm. It only cost $3.50 at my local Priceline so I thought, why not give it a go.

Hey Beauties! 
Today I thought I would do a review of the very first Urban Decay product which I ever purchased. Urban Decay has to be one of my favorite brands because the quality of their products always exceptional - I have never been disappointed with a Urban Decay product I have purchased.

Hey beauties! Today I thought I would do a review of two lipsticks that have quickly received 'favorite status' in my books. I could not resist picking these up at Priceline when they had their 40% off all cosmetics sale and I actually wanted to get a few more colours but they were all sold out. It seems like they are very popular and for good reason too!

I ended up picking up two colours - 'Lychee Crush' and 'Peaches & Cream'. Both are gorgeous and beautifully vibrant.

I have recently seen the Arbonne brand show up on a lot of my favorite blogs so was delighted when I was offered the opportunity to try some of their products.

Arbonne is a brand that I have never tried before so I did a bit of research on their website to find out a bit more about the company and their products. According to their website, their focus on developing products that incorporate botanical ingredients and are free from parabens, phthalates and talc.
