RoC Complete Lift New Technology Daily Moisturiser

"This moisturising cream is enriched with hydrating agents for comfort lasting all day long. THPE technology, a patented molecule, the result of five years of research, which targets skin firming, is now partnered with Bugrane, offering a New lift and fix technology."

I love this moisturiser!!
I used one of the samples last week as a part of my nightly skin care regime.

Nude By Nature Mineral Lip Liner in Chique

This is a full size sample!
RRP $14.95

"100% natural and no toxic ingredients, the velvety formula glides on smooth and easy to deliver long-wearing, water proof colour."

First off I love the Nude by Nature range - I've been using their mineral cover for about a year now. This lip liner is a great colour - I use it under L'Oreal Fairest Nude.
I'd recommend warming it up on your hand first before applying it to your lips.

Lancome Tresor Midnight Rose Fragrance

2 x Samples
RRP $79.00, 30ml

"Lancome tells a new love story, filled with lightness, magic, but also sensuality. Tresor Midnight Rose is a colourful, upbeat and joyful fragrance which embodies a mischievous femininity."

Such a gorgeous fragrance!
I'd have to say that's it's too sweet for my taste but it would be great to wear to a
day outing or spring garden party.

Hawley International Miracle Nail Shine

Another full size sample!
RRP $6.95

"This revolutionary professional buffer that gives women fabulous looking nails in seconds"

I was very happy to see this included in the pack! It works wonders!!

Kerastase Nector Themique

"Rich in essential elements, Royal Jelly Extract is a key ingredient which intensifies nutrition and creates ultimate softness. Thermo-protective ingredient, Gluco-Sleek helps protect the hair fibre from the damaging effects of heat-styling. Leave in treatment and style with heat device."

I've heard wonderful things about this product - best suited to thick and coarse hair but I'm going to still love using it! Apparently the great effects last on your hair for up to 6 washes!

I'm looking forward to seeing what will be included in the December Christmas Pack now!!

Hope you have a lovely day!

Colouring Rice for Makeup Brush Holders

Hi Lovelies!

Hope you're well!

From my 'Current Favourites' Video, I got a lot of requests on how I coloured the rice that I use in my Makeup Brush Holders. 

Here is the video:

And here is one of my Makeup Brush Holders:

It's very easy to do - as I'll explain now.

First off you'll need to get a nice holder - I found my glass holder which is suppose to be a vase at a cheap shop for $2 so I got two.

And then you'll need the following:

1.  1/2 cup of Rice - can be any kind 
2.  Few drops of Food Colouring - can be any colour you like :o)
3.  1/4 cup of White Vinegar
4.  2 Containers
5.  Sieve
6.  Plate
7.  Kitchen paper towels

This recipe makes 1/2 a cup of Rice - so depending on the size of your holder - you may want to make 2 or 3 batches at once.

Step 1

Measure 1/4 a cup of White Vinegar and pour into 1st container.
The reason why you use vinegar is so that the rice holds the colour and doesn't go mouldy over time.

Step 2

Take your choice of food colouring and add 4 drops of it to the vinegar

Step 3

Measure 1/2 a cup of rice and add it to the vinegar.

Step 4

Mix the rice and vinegar together to make sure all rice is coloured. Leave it for about four to five minutes.

Step 5

Pour the rice through the sieve into the 2nd container.

Step 6

Taking your plate and kitchen paper towels, spread rice on to the paper towels.

Step 7

Place it outside in a well ventilated and sunny area and leave to dry.

I bring mine in at the end of the day and leave to let dry even more over night. Then the next day you are ready to use it in your Makeup Brush Holder!

If you don't like the smell of the Vinegar (like me) then I wait a day or so before I wash the rice and then once again leave to dry out in the sun and overnight and then you're done!

You may want to repeat the process or make double/triple the quantity to fill your Makeup Brush Holder.

I hope you guys give this a go if you like it and please let me know how you go if you do!!

Any questions, let me know :o)


Girl Powder Active Lip Gloss

Hey Lovelies,

Hope you're well!

As most of you know - I'm a Lip Gloss lurver!!

So, when the lovely and fun ladies at Girl Powder asked if I would like to try their Lip Glosses - I said "For Sure!!".


Girl Powder market their Lip Glosses to active females that strive to live a healthy lifestyle and who value natural products. To fulfill the high demand for a natural, non-sticky, beautiful lip gloss for active females of all ages to enjoy, Girl Powder's Active Lip Glass was made. 

I received the three "snow cone" flavours - Strawberry, Pineapple and Bubble Gum - which I must say are all yummy! With an added bonus of them using 99% natural ingredients and no harmful chemicals, you can taste away haha!! You have to be a fan of sweet scents though!

Each Lip Gloss contains Shea Butter and Vegetable oils and minerals to keep your lips moisturised and protected naturally from the sun. 

One huge plus of these Lip Glosses is they're not sticky!! So no more hair sticking to your lips - yay! They have light reflecting elements that allows you to glow all day long.

They are $15 each or $30 for all three (10g tubes) on the Girl Powder website.

Overall I really like the Girl Powder Lip Glosses and certainly recommend trying them out :o)

Hourglass Aura Sheer Cheek Stain - Flush

Hey Lovelies!

Hope you're well :o)

I recently filmed and wrote a review on the Hourglass Aura Sheer Cheek Stain for Makeupgeekxtra and I thought I would share it on my Blog as well. 

Here is the video review:

And here is some more info and my thoughts on it:

Retails for $45 on the Hourglass Website.

It comes in three shades – Petal, Flush and Rouge. The particular one I tried was Flush.

It is oil free and fragrance free which is good to prevent breakouts and it’s actually water based and light weight so it lets your skin breath. It has Vitamin E to nourish your skin as well. It says that it is to provide a natural, subtle glow to your cheeks with light reflecting elements and the colour is to last all day.

How you apply it is by twisting the bottom which is a click mechanism – you can work out how many clicks you prefer for each application so you make sure that you have the same amount of product for each cheek. You dot it onto the apples of your cheeks and blend from there and you can then layer for more colour if you like.

You only need a tiny amount, it’s very pigmented. The product is very bright when you dispense it but once you apply and blend it, then it just gives a natural glow. The only thing is that you can’t use too much powder before using this cheek stain as it doesn’t sit properly on your skin – can look blotchy.

An added bonus is that you can use it as a lip stain as well – it doesn’t last as long as on the cheeks though.

Overall I really enjoy using this product - it is a bit pricey but you only need a tiny amount for it to work.

If you’re looking for an all day glow on your cheeks then you should check out the Hourglass Aura Cheek Stain.

I hope this review was helpful for you!

Maybelline NY "FITme" Foundation & Concealer Review

Hey Lovelies!!

Hope you're all well :o)

I bought the New ('New' for us Aussies) Maybelline NY FITme Foundation and Concealer (as below) a few weeks ago and thought I would let you know what I think of them. I got number 235 in the Foundation and number 20 in the Concealer.

I featured them in my recent Favourites Video:

First off I'll say that I've been in love with the Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse (as below) for the past year or so and have been threw around 15 bottles of it haha! I am Medium - Pure Beige. I've been trying out different foundations during that time but hadn't found anything that I preferred over the Maybelline DLM. That's until I tried the FITme Foundation. 

I am one that doesn't want too much coverage - I want a foundation to have more coverage then say a tinted moisturiser but still look natural and flawless. I also like a dewy look rather than Matte (especially coming into Spring/Summer). I find that the Fit Me Foundation satisfies these requirements.

I wouldn't recommend it for people with oily skin - it's best on normal to dry. It's got a very lovely, light formula and it claims to allow your skin to breathe. It's also got a translucent base and lightweight pigments to highlight your skin's natural highs and lows. It's also got an SPF of 15. 

I found applying it with my fingers didn't work as well as using a foundation brush. 

The only downside with it is the bottle it comes in - it looks great! But to dispense the product is a bit of a hassle - I really like the pump dispenser of the Dream Liquid Mousse.  

The "FITme" name means that you should be able to find a shade (number) that best matches your skin tone. They have the relevant Concealer and Powder that matches with that Foundation Colour (number). I believe there are 18 foundation shades available but I've only seen up to 12 different shades in store in Australia.   

Pricing will vary wherever you source your Maybelline products but the average is around $18 for the 30ml bottle.

Here are some swatches (Number 235):


In relation to the Concealer - it's fantastic! I always go a shade or two lighter than my foundation as I use it around my eye area. I got the number 20 in Sand. 

There are 6 different Shades available in Australia and the average price is $13 for 6.85ml. It's got a brush applicator which I really like.

Once again the formula is light and gives a natural coverage.

Here are some swatches (Number 20):


Thank you for reading and have a great day!
