I’ve had a lot on my plate recently with juggling work responsibilities and parental duties with severe sleep deprivation which translates to tired, dull skin and D.A.R.K. under eye circles and bags.  Bring out the world’s smallest violin!

On the plus side, I realised that I was indeed the perfect candidate to trial and review Maybelline’s newest range – SuperStay Better Skin Foundation and Concealer.  Bring it on!

Lip Love : Maybelline Color Elixirs

Maybelline Color Elixir Color Sensational Creamy Lip Lacquers

I was in lippy heaven when the collection of Maybelline Color Elixir Color Sensational Creamy Lip Lacquers (phew, what a long name to type out!) landed on my desk recently.  I had already read rave reviews about these lip-tastic elixirs and I wondered if they would live up to the hype so I immediately put them to the test.

Lancome DreamTone Dark Spot Corrector : Allow me to start off with a disclaimer.  I am a marketer’s wet dream.  Show me any beauty product beautifully packaged in pink and I’ll throw myself all over it like the girls when they met The Bachelor (oops, did I just reveal my new reality TV obsession?!).  This Lancome bottle is not only pink, but it is one up with ombre pink!!!

She’s pretty, she’s witty, she’s an expert on writing about beauty and she recently popped a sprog.  No, I’m not talking about me…!  I’m talking about Zoe Foster Blake who launched her own skincare line, Go-To, earlier this year.

The Go-To range currently consists of a lip balm, cleanser, exfoliating facial pads, face cream and Exceptionoil – a nourishing body oil which I had the pleasure to trial.

5 Face Masks To Suit All Skin Types & Budgets

When I was back in my hometown Glasgow a few weeks ago, one of the first few things my lovely mother did for me was to book me in for a facial at the beauty salon.  I used to get facials ALL THE TIME back in my pre-Aussie days (before 2009) because :-

1.  I was vain (okay, I kinda still am!) and wanted to have amazing looking skin whilst I was flirting with all the guys (yes, I used to be a big flirt too!)
2.  I used to have a semi-stressful lifestyle where I worked really hard and partied even harder so I earned good money (back then!) and could afford/needed to pamper myself

Nowadays, facials at a beauty salon are a long-lost luxury for me.  Instead, I have to resort to good old DIY (even have to trim my own hair!) facials at home with face masks which I’ve had fun testing (anything non-nappy-related is fun for me these days haha!)

Anyway, let’s take a look at them together and maybe you’ll find one that will tickle your fancy…

New Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipsticks & my Fambam choose their Favourites

New Rimmel Moisture London Renew Lipsticks

When we went to UK recently, one of the places we REALLY wanted to go to was London.  Yes, I’ve been there multiple times and we spent a few days there for our honeymoon but we wanted to visit again because a) SHOPPING and b) FOOD (and if my London friends and family are reading this, then of course, we wanted to visit you guys too!!! *ahem*)  However, we only spent a few measly hours in London and that was at Heathrow Airport where Baby Bunty vomited in spectacular fashion – attention-seeker or what?!

Speaking of London and attention-seekers, Rimmel London recently released their new Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipsticks in 12 eye-catching colours and lucky old me got my mitts on the sexy pop-up press kit so let’s take a look together…
