Swatch/Review: The Balm 'Instain' Blush in Toile

Monday, 26 August 2013

Hello beauties, welcome back to my page! Today I will be doing a simple swatch post on the new 'Instain' blush from The Balm in the shade Toile! This product recently hit the shelves at David Jones and I was really keen in trying them out because they received some pretty great reviews from the lovely Emily from Beauty Broadcast (watching her videos make me want to buy everything!)

This blush comes in six different shades varying from bright pinks to deep plums. Although there aren't many shades, I think there is a shade for all skin tones whether you're fair, natural or dark. The shades are: Argle (Petal Pink), Swiss Dot (Peach), Toile (Strawberry), Lace (Bright Pink), Houndstooth (Mauve) and Pinstripe (Plum).

First Impression: Maybelline Age Rewind Primer

Friday, 16 August 2013

Hi guys! Back to do a post on .. -drum rolls- .. another primer! I don't know what it is but I've been really interested in using primers lately so I decided to pick up another one. You guys .. Priceline is having a massive 50% off Maybelline sale RIGHT NOW so go if there's anything you've been eyeing, go grab them now! I was hanging for this sale and made a list right when I found out and the Maybelline Age Rewind Primer was one of the items that I was interested in. I've been reading some reviews on this primer and saw that people were rating it 3.5-4 stars so I thought, half price, why not?

So today I will be doing a 'First Impression' which basically trying out a product for the first time and then giving my personal opinion/review on it. It claims that it makes '.. skin look instantly transformed into a perfectly smooth canvas for ideal makeup application. Lines, wrinkles, pores and imperfections appear to instantly vanish in just one step.' It comes with .85 FL of product and retails for $15.95 but after the 50% off, it retails for $7.95! Bargain hey? Let's jump right into it!

Hi loves, first OOTD on my blog!

Swatches: The Balm 'Shady Lady' Eyeshadow Palette and 'Hot Mama' Blush

Tuesday, 13 August 2013

Welcome back to my page darlings, hope you've been well! David Jones is having a sweet deal on The Balm cosmetics at the moment and I got my hands on two goodies! The deal is that if you spend $27.95 or more on the brand, you will receive a 'Shady Lady' eyeshadow palette for free which is at a $49.95 value! What a bargain! The 'Hot Mama' Blush is valued at exactly $27.95 so both products were only $14 each. You can't beat that, especially because The Balm is quite expensive in Australia.

I've been eyeing the Hot Mama blush for a very long time because of Emily Noel from Beauty Broadcast! Every time I walked past the stand I couldn't resist swatching the blush but walked away because of the price. The Shady Lady palette was a bonus but I never really looked at the eyeshadows since they were quite shimmery and metallic but once I bought it, each colour really caught my eye. So let's jump right into the swatches shall we?

Review: Australis Mattifying Face Base

Sunday, 11 August 2013

Hey there bloggers! It's been quite awhile since my last post (at least I feel like it has). I purchased the Australis Mattifying Face Base from Priceline about two weeks back which retailed for $13.95 but I got it on sale for $10.95! It is described as a '.. mattifying face base stick that helps to control oil as well as brighten and and adjust skin tone.'

I decided to buy this product because I've read some amazing reviews from other users. It received a 4-5 star rating and once I read that, I jumped on the bandwagon picked one up and better yet, it was on sale. I don't use primer or bases on a daily basis because I actually tend to forget! I currently use MAC's Prep and Prime and I love it. I thought that this 'Matte Out' stick would be an easier alternative to apply primer as it's in a stick form and can be easily brought around with me.
