❤ Lust Have It - January 2013 ❤

Hi Lovelies,

I hope you're well!!

I loved this months LHI pack
New gorgeous packaging and some full size products = yay!!

Discount Code - yay!!

Here is the new packaging - love!!
It's a magnetic closing, hard covered box - very useful to have.

And what's inside....

Lush Cosmetics
Emotional Brilliance Makeup

Full Size Product
RRP $24.95

"Spin the wheel to discover what colours you should be wearing today! This lush selection of mood enhancing lip colours, eyeliners and eyeshadows lets you create your own inspiring look! With a playful word linked to each colour, you'll find the thought lasts all day as you begin to truly wear the word. It's Emotional Brilliance!"

I was so happy to see this product in the pack. I've been wanting to try out a product from the Lush Emotional Brilliance range for awhile now. This is a colour I wouldn't wear on my lips but I'm going to try other ways to wear it, maybe as an eyeshadow :o) This colour is called Confident and it's a dark berry with a slight shimmer.

Nude by Nature
BB 5-in-1 Miracle Cream

Full Size Product, 50ml
RRP $19.95

"Where make-up and mineral collide! BB instantly hydrates, corrects, perfects, protects and gives your skin natural radiance in one lightweight application. BB your best, beautiful self with this natural wonder!"

This was another great product to receive. You guys know that I love BB Creams so it's another one to try out. I also really like the Nude by Nature makeup line. I've got an initial review video that I did when I first started youtube which I'll link here.

Lust Have It!
Kabuki Brush

Full Size Product
RRP $19.95

"One of the hottest make-up tools this season! The professional Kabuki brush helps create beautifully flawless coverage everytime. This eco-friendly synthetic brush can be used wet or dry to apply base, bronzer or blush. Feather in small circular movements for best results."

Once again another gorgeous product to receive!!
This brush is so super soft!!
I don't have a small kabuki brush like this so I'm glad to add it to my brush collection :o)

Shampoo and Conditioner

2 x 10ml Samples
RRP $9.95

"Infused with pomegranate and mango butter, this hypoallergenic shampoo and conditioner are formulated for colour-treated hair to regenerate the hair fibre deep down and protect from deterioration."

These are good sized samples which is great. I'm looking forward to trying them out, I've tried the Klorane dry shampoo which I love.

Cleanance Skin Range

3 x Samples
Full sizes available from $24.95

"Straight from the thermal springs of Avene in France comes this trio of luxurious skincare: gel cleanser, cream exfoliant and anti-shine moisturiser. Purely dedicated to sensitive skin!"

I've tried quite a few different Avene products but nothing from their Cleanance range. I'm most interested in the cream exfoliant. I love that Avene products are made for sensitive skin.

So all up I loved this months pack!! 

What did you get in yours?

Have a great day!!


❤ Rave Review: Skin79 Chiffon BB Mousse ❤

Hi Lovelies,

I hope you're well!!

I wanted to let you know about a new Beauty Balm that I've been loving!! 

It's the Skin79 Chiffon BB Mousse.

For the last 12 months I have been loving Beauty Balms. I use them either as a base for my foundation or use them on their own to provide a light coverage.

I haven't tried a mousse beauty balm or foundation before but since using this new BB Mousse, I'm in love!! Keep reading to find out what I think.

Brand:  Skin79
Product:  Chiffon BB Mouse
Size:  50g
Price:  $29-$34 (AUD)
Would I Repurchase:  Absolutely!!
Other Notes:  SPF30, Made in Korea

What the packaging says:
Lightweight and fresh finish with a soft adhesion and micro creamy foam with moisture naturally covers up the blemishes and imperfections and evens out your skin tone. Sunscreen functional BB mousse protects the skin which is exposed to the sun.
Glacial Water and Coral Water cools down damaged and irritated skin from harmful environment. Mistletoe Extract, Swiss Alpine Herb maintains the water balance so it makes the skin healthy and moist.

I use it here in my recent video:

So, first off lets acknowledge the gorgeous packaging....
White shimmer background with little flowers, leaves and hearts.
Beautiful additional to any makeup collection!!

I use my Sigma F80 Kabuki Brush to apply it.

I love the dispenser, very hygienic.

It's a Mousse formula and you only need one pump to do your whole face.

I recommend stippling the product on your face first.

And then buff it into my skin for a flawless finish.

It is a very lightweight formula and absorbs into your skin quickly to feel like you're not wearing anything on your face. It evens out my skin tone and provides a lovely refreshing feeling on my skin (which is due to the Glacial and Coral Waters added to the formula).

An added bonus is the SPF 30 PA++ UV Interception.
That's what I love most about Beauty Balms is the high SPF.

As I said earlier, I use this BB Mousse as either a base for my foundation or wear it by itself for a light coverage makeup day.

Using it without foundation or a powder it gives my skin a lovely, dewy finish (which I like) but it never feels oily throughout the day.

All in all I love the new Skin79 Chiffon BB Mousse!!
If you love your BB Creams you should definitely try out this new Mousse.

Let me know if you've tried it and what you think as well :o)

    Have a great day!!

❤ Online Shopping!! ❤

Hi Lovelies,

I've had a lot of questions recently about where I source and buy my makeup online. As I'm in Australia we either don't have specific makeup brands in store or they are too expensive to buy in store.

These last few sites have daily sale campaigns and you can pick up some great deals - they feature fashion, beauty, homewares etc. I recommend being on their mailing list so that you can keep up to date with what campaigns they have on.


So they are my current favourite online stores!!

I'd love to hear what stores you like too - there's many!!

     Have a great day!!
