Review : L’Oreal Paris Skin Perfection 3 in 1 Purifying Micellar Solution

L'Oreal Paris Skin Perfection Micellar Water Solution in Australia

I’ve heard that L’Oreal Paris Skin Perfection 3 in 1 Purifying Micellar Solution is making its way to Australia soon-ish, but meanwhile I got my cousin to buy me not one, but TWO bottles of this baby from Boots (UK drugstore mecca; Aussie equivalent is the beloved Priceline) when she came to Australia last October (yes, my review is nearly half a year late!).  I’m glad I got her to buy me TWO bottles because…(spoiler alert)…I love it a lot!

You may be thinking – Girl, it’s just a make-up remover!  What’s the big dealio?

Well, please allow me to waffle on and share my love…

14 Beauty Products To Help You Rock Radiant Orchid

radiant orchid beauty products

Radiant Orchid is the Pantone Colour of 2014 – I love it!  It’s bright, happy and eye-catching.  Not only can you wear this purple hue as clothing, shoes and accessories, you can add pops of colour in your beauty routine too.  However, you probably should not wear head to toe in Radiant Orchid – unless you want to look like Violet Beauregarde from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory :P  Each to their own!

To get the deets on 14 beauty products which will help you rock Radiant Orchid, read all about it on my guest post at Breakfast With Audrey.

Who else is loving the colour?

Advertorial : Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Foundation

Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Foundation

I’m going to start off today’s post with a bit of beauty trivia…

The Number 1 matte foundation in Australia is…*drumroll please*…  And do you know when it was launched?  It was launched in 2005 – 8 years ago!  Wow!

With that in mind, my expectations were pretty high before trialling this foundation so let’s see if it delivered…

(Oh…and there’s a $150 Maybelline prize pack giveaway at the end so do keep reading, ladies *winks*)

Monthly Subscription Boxes : Violet Box, Her Fashion Box & Wantable

beauty monthly boxes, fashion monthly boxes

In the latter half of 2011, beauty boxes had just arrived in Australia and I subscribed to a couple for a few months for beauty blogging purposes but I wasn’t overly impressed and felt my money was better spent elsewhere (I am a hard one to please).

Then in 2012, I received a few beauty boxes for review and I was probably more impressed with the packaging and the cardboard boxes itself than the actual contents *oops* – but I did feel it was an improvement to 2011.

Enter 2013 and now there are monthly surprise subscription boxes for EVERYTHING – food, drink, underwear, sex toys…!!  But don’t worry, for the interests of this blog, I am referring to fashion and /or beauty boxes…

Recently, I received a few monthly boxes from different companies and I’ve decided to gather all my thoughts and package it all into one blog post :)

No, I haven’t popped out my baby girl yet!  And no, we’re not going to call her Laura either.  But I’m talking about the Laura Mercier Touch Up Brush Clutch For Eyes & Cheeks which landed on my beauty desk recently.

*hehe*
But I fooled y’all for a second, didn’t I?
…crickets chirping…

Moving swiftly on…

Review & Swatch : L’Oreal Paris Magic Nude Liquid Powder

L’Oreal Paris Nude Magique Eau De Teint Australia, Armani Maestro dupe, L'Oreal Paris Magic Nude Liquid Powder Australia, L'Oreal Paris Magic Nude Liquid Powder Natural Buff 318,

Another day, another foundation!  Hello L’Oreal Paris Magic Nude Liquid Powder!  But this one’s extra special because a) it was a gift from the lovely Norlin over at Baubles, Bubbles & Bags when she went on her US trip and b) it’s apparently a dupe for the more expensive Armani Maestro Foundation which was on my wishlist.

However, please note that L’Oreal Paris Magic Nude Liquid Powder is not yet released in Australia and it’s known as L’Oreal Paris Nude Magique Eau De Teint in UK…so who knows when and what it will be called when it is released in Australia…?!
