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!!

"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)
