Liebster Award

MandySharesLife nominated me for the Liebster Award, yay! I had been nominated before on my old blog, but I see they have changed it a little bit so I'm glad to be nominated again (:

The Liebster Award is all about supporting new bloggers and helping them find new readers. Your nominee asks 11 questions which you answer and then you ask 11 questions to your blogger nominees (with less than 200 followers).

The questions MandySharesLife asks:

1) What is your favorite beauty product?
My favourite? How can I pick just one?! I'll have to think about it logically.. My favourite product would be mascara and my favourite mascara would be Maybelline Falsies in Waterproof, so I guess that's my answer.

2) Describe the perfect outfit. 
Casual chic. The off-duty model look. So hot. Comfortable skinny black jean (7FAM are the most comfortable I've ever worn), black boots or booties, loose shirt, cardi for casual and coloured blazer for something smarter.

3) What is your favorite song?
At the moment? I'm quite enjoying ROAR by Katy Perry.. I hear it's a rip off of another song but I still like it. Really like Katy more after watching her movie and what she went through with Russell Brand :(

4) Beauty product you can't live without? 
I think I answered this already.. but the second product I can't live without is probably BB Cream. A good BB Cream with actual coverage, sun protection and all that good stuff (so probably an Asian one.. just saying.) That's just makeup by the way. I would obviously prefer a good all round cleanser over a BB Cream cos I might not even need it with good skin (I wish).

5) 7 things we can find in your bag? 
I'm the kind of person who likes to take everything with them..but if we're talking about beauty, I have a small makeup bag with everything you could ever possibly need - tweezers, q-tip, wipes, bandaid you get the gist but these are 7 things hanging out in the most convenient back pocket.
1. Rimmel Apocalips - Nova
2. LA Colors Auto Lipliner - Fiery Red
3. Guerlain Meteorites Compact - 02 Teint Beige
4. Sugarbaby Frangipani Fragrance de Luxe Rollerball
5. Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain - 030 Smitten
6. Bourjois Lipstick - 57 Fuchsia Class
7. ModelCo Heated Eyelash Curler

6) Name your favorite perfume. 
If you read my 5 Friday Favourites post last week you'd know at the moment it's Vera Wang Princess !

7) Top 10 favorite clothing stores. 
Ooh, I usually shop online so.. (in no particular order)
1. Grand Social
3. Forever New
4. Zara
5. h&m
6. Ksubi Jeans
7. Nudie Jeans
8. Alice McCall
9. 7 For All Mankind Jeans
10. Topshop
(That was hard. I don't even have money for clothes after my beauty purchases "/ I was just naming brands towards the end.. Can you tell I love jeans?)

8) What is your favorite summer trend? 
Mmm I pretty much never follow trends but I love maxi dresses. I will forever wear them until the end of time.

9)Who's your fashion icon? 
Olivia Palermo omg love.

10)If you could put someone else in YOUR shoes for a day, who would you choose? 
Mmm, not sure. That's a strange question.

11)Name the cheapest online/clothing/beauty stores you've bought from.
Daiso, Sasa, Strawberrynet, iHerb, Cotton On.

My Nominees:
Lady Sapphire Blog
Ashlynne's Treasure Chest

August Trash | Empties #2

There's nothing more satisfying for a beauty junkie than finishing a beauty product. When this happens emotions can range from being sad, happy, relieved to good riddance... I hope you enjoy this trash talk and leave me a comment letting me know what I will find in your trash can (:

The Lush lady gave me a sample of this when I went in for some skincare. I think it was okay, I don't remember it being amazing but then again the sample only lasted a couple of day. I wouldn't repurchase because I have a tonne of skincare waiting to be used and it's quite expensive..

2. Maybelline Express Care Eye Makeup Remover
I think this product is discontinued. I picked up a bottle for 50% off at Chemist Warehouse and then I loved it so much, I picked up 3 more. I think I still have 2 backup bottles. They replaced this with the Total Clean Eye Makeup Remover which I haven't tried yet. The two-layered products you have to shake usually works pretty well for me even with waterproof mascara.

To be honest, I change my brush heads every 6 months. I use it at night only and maybe 5 nights a week. I find delicate is best for me all year round as I can use the high setting during summer and lower settings during winter where my skin is more dry and sensitive. The current brush head I have on my Clarisonic is about 2 months old and I don't think I'll be repurchasing soon as I'm trying to see if I can stop using it.

These really did nothing for me. To be fair I have only found one wipe which works for my face - Nivea Pure & Natural. Everything else hurts and in this case, doesn't even remove any makeup. I rarely use wipes anyway so I used these up by wiping my makeup area and swatches.

I absolutely LOVE Liz Earle like omg.. This was a great moisturiser, without being thick or heavy feeling, just so comfortable on the skin. I think I still have one (or two..) jars of this left so I won't need to repurchase this but definitely would when I run out.

I turned to Proactiv earlier in the year when my skin was freaking it out from the move interstate.. It had worked for me when I was younger so I thought I would give it another go. The toner is probably my favourite from the core range - it's alcohol free with glycolic acid. I wouldn''t repurchase because I'm trying to have a more "natural lifestyle" but I would say don't diss Proactiv until you've tried it. True, it's not going to work for everyone (nothing does) but it has also done wonders for a lot of people and you might just possibly be one of them. (Side note: For me, Proactive cleared up my 'wide T-zone' but I still constantly battle with hormonal acne around my mouth.)

These shed like nobody's business and they hurt my face. I've had them for a while and I tried to make it work by washing them with a conditioner and thinking they would stop shedding after a while but nup. These have got to go.

This has nice coverage, SPF25 and I usually use this everyday under my foundation (or alone) as a base. I won't be repurchasing this one in particular because I hear the gold one is more geared towards normal/dry skin and I also picked up the Lioele Tripe the Solution because my friend (who hates BB Creams) raved on about it.

I picked this up ages ago when it was all the rage.. and I totally fell into the hype. Now, I don't think it's anything special at all. Every brand has come out with this type of hair oil (including Aldi) and I find they all work (or not work) all the same. My favourite hair serum is CHI Silk Infusion before heat and Davroe Moisture Sense Argan Oil.

I brush my teeth.. as I'm sure you all do. I prefer the Sensitive one but I've been using the Precision Clean lately (because it comes in a bulk pack at Costco) and it doesn't hurt my teeth or anything.

This is a limited edition Christmas product and I got about 3 uses out of this. It's white and it comes in the shape of a beard/moustache. The scent is pleasant but not overly sweet like floral or fruity.

Don't forget to let me know what you've finished up lately. Thanks for reading!

5 Friday Faves #1

It's Friday, YAY, and welcome to my first ever 5 Friday Favourites! I've been all alone by my lonesome self this week so I have had a bit more time to pamper myself (because I'm not cleaning up after an almost full grown man). You'll notice there are only four products in the photo because the fifth is a virtual favourite aka blogger, youtuber, tv show etc. Hope you enjoy. Let me know your favourites in the comments below!

{I won this product from a V&V giveaway - lucky me ;)}
This body mousse smells and feels amazing.. The mousse is feels very light and blends well on the skin. I thought this tub was going to go so quickly but it's actually lasted quite a while. I'm so bad at describing scents so from the website: "An exquisite blend of fresh lychee pulp, sweetened oolong tea and palmarosa syrup, emboldened with a drop of aged vetiver." YUM (:

I picked this up from iHerb a while ago. I personally wouldn't repurchase this one as I found one at Costco that I can eat as well as use externally. So I have been loving coconut oil in general (not this one in particular). I use it as a night eye cream, eyelash serum, hair mask, teaspoon in my daily morning english breakfast tea, cook with it. There are so many other uses for coconut oil that I haven't explored yet.

3. Lush's Ro's Argan Body Conditioner
OMG the smell. If you love the smell of roses you will love this.. even if you don't you will love this. I actually use this as a body lotion. So after I step out of the shower, I will gently pat myself dry and apply the 'conditioner' onto slightly damp skin. The scent lasts all night and onto the next day you will catch whiffs of it. It'll even make your clothes smell amazing if you get dressed straight away.

4. Vera Wang Princess
{This is a tester I received when I used to work at duty free}
This is a winter fragrance for me. "The scent sparkles with the captivating, sweet, tart aroma of delicate lady apples and the coveted tahitian tiare flower and finishes with a tasty vanilla chiffon" says the Vera Wang Frangrances website.. whatever that means. It smells a little bit fruity and floral but the vanilla adds depth and warmth. Usually not the biggest fan on vanilla but with the apple and flower, just smells special.

I have been watching her videos and following her blog for a while now but I found out about the Balm deal at DJs from her so I just want to give her a shout out. She's from Melbourne and her videos are so relaxed, they're great.

Hope you've enjoyed by first 5 Friday Favourites. I'd love to know what you've been enjoying lately. If you have any product suggestions or full review requests, leave me a comment below. Have a great weekend!

Revlon for Liptember // Hump Day Haul

Today, we are hauling for a great cause. Revlon released four lipsticks for Liptember, with proceeds going to the Centre for Women's Mental Health and Lifeline. They are available at Chemist Warehouse, My Chemist and My Beauty Spot for only $9.99 a pop!

PeachsBeauty - Revlon Liptember Pink Red Lipstick Swatch

I picked up two colours in - Liptember Pink (Rose Apres-Dimi) (left) and Liptember Red (Rouge Adore) (right). They also had a Coral and Shimmery Purple shade which were pretty but not something I would wear. Liptember also released their own lipsticks in crazy fun bright colours.

PeachsBeauty - Revlon Liptember Pink Red Lipstick Swatch

Liptember aims to raise awareness and funds for women's mental health issues. You can sponsor me at:  or register on to take part yourself!

I love it when I can help a good cause and have some retail therapy at the same time. I'd love to know what you've purchased lately!
