Hi beauties! Today I thought I would do a quick review of one of my favorite Body Shop products - the Strawberry Body Butter. It is a favorite for several reasons, firstly, during winter this stuff is a savior for my skin and secondly, it smells amazing!

Hi beauties! Today I thought that I would talk about an old favorite of mine - the Revlon Colour Burst Lipstick. No matter what other drugstore lipsticks that I try, I just always keep coming back to this one. Not only is there a fabulous range of colours available but the quality is top notch.

Given that Sephora is coming to Australia next year (read all about it here), I thought it would be a good time to do a review of one of the few Sephora branded products I own. I picked up this Sephora Perfecting Ultra-Smoothing Primer whilst in Singapore two months ago so I have had plenty of opportunities to test this bad boy out.

I was on the lookout for a product that would smooth out my skin and help it look its best for my wedding. The thing that caught my eye about this primer in particular was the fact that it is a gel like formula which will not block my pores or cause my skin to get oily.

Hi beauties! I hope that you had a great Easter and an awesome short work week. Today I am back with a new review for you, I will be talking about the Schick Hydro Silk Razor. This awesome product hit supermarket shelves earlier this year and I have been a huge fan ever since!

Just because summer is pretty much over, that doesn't mean that you still can't rock carefree beach waves. I have discovered an awesome sea salt spray that is not only budget friendly (set me back under $10!) but also works a treat in quickly achieving a sexy hairstyle without having to set foot at the beach when the weather is cooler.

Hi beauties! I cannot believe that it is almost Easter, this year is just flying by! Anyways, before I get carried away with preparation for the Easter festivities I thought I would share with you my pick for the affordable product of the week. 

Every girl needs to have a dry shampoo to freshen up her hair style in case of a hair emergency, but there is no reason that it should cost a fortune. This is where Girlz Only dry shampoo comes to the rescue and it will set you back a whole $2.00 from your local Target!

Hi beauties! I am going to keep today's post short and sweet as it is a short work week after all. I will be talking about an old favorite of mine that I have never actually gotten around to blogging about because I always thought that it was a product that most girls had tried and didn't need to read about. 

It wasn't until earlier this week when one of my girlfriends asked me for advice on a new powder foundation she should try and it came up in conversation that she had never actually tried the Mac Studio Fix foundation. So it occurred to me that even though a product has been around for what seems like forever, that does not meant that everyone has tried it, so that is the motivation behind today's post.

Even though the weather is getting cooler and the days are getting shorter, I am still treating my skin as if it is summer. I am always on the lookout for firming body products so I thought that I would try out this Natio Smooth Firming Toning Body Lotion.

Not only does this product smell great but it comes in a decent sized 150g bottle which I like to see.

Yes, that's right beauty lovers! The wait is almost over and we will soon have our very own Sephora stores in Australia! 

I know that we have all heard the rumors that have been going around for years, that have left us nothing but disappointed as there was never any truth to them. We now finally have a credible and reliable source confirming that Sephora will be opening its first shop in Sydney in the first half of 2015!

According to the Financial Review published today, Sephora has confirmed that it has been looking at Sydney locations for its very first store. Not only that but they have also confirmed that they intend to open stores in other capital cities around Australia as well!

To say that I'm excited is an understatement! For so many years I have had to travel long distances to be able to visit my favorite store and that has been a luxury that I could not afford to do as often as I would have liked.

Hi beauties! Today I want to talk about one of my favorite multi-purpose products in my makeup collection - the Napoleon Perdis Eyeliner Sealer. The beauty about this product is the fact that it actually comes out clear out of the bottle so you can use it to create eyeliner in any colour you want!

Hi beauties! I can't believe it's Friday already! Anyhoo, today I am going to be talking about the Maybelline 24 Hour Super Stay Lip Colours. I purchased two of these as they are currently on sale for 15% off at Priceline.

As the name suggests, these are long lasting lip colours - I think they are somewhere in between a lipstick and a lip gloss. Either way, I like the idea behind them but I am just not blown away by this product and if anything, I have been left feeling disappointed.

Hi beauties! Today I want to talk about one of my favorite Clinique mascaras - the high lengths mascara. This mascara does everything I expect from a quality mascara and I would go as far as to say that it is the best mascara that Clinique makes!
