Can you believe it's less than a month until Christmas? This year really has flown by and I am so looking forward to the holidays! As the weather gets warmer here in Australia, I've had to change up my beauty routine a little to ensure that my makeup lasts throughout the day. I've definitely had to seek out more long-lasting base products and experiment with my skincare combinations. I have also been trying out some new lip products that I am excited to share with you. To find out what I have been loving this month, keep reading!
If you have been following my blog for a while now, you would be no stranger to Shanghai Suzy, a Melbourne based lipstick-only cosmetics brand with a bold and bright range of seasonal, limited edition lipsticks. This brand was founded back in 2013, and I have been loving many of their collections over that period. I have previous reviews of their Autumn/Winter 2015 Collection and Autumn/Winter 2014 Collection. Needless to say, I was super excited to try the Shanghai Suzy 16/17 Cocktails at Sunset Lipstick Collection* that is filled with pinks, oranges and bright shades, taking inspiration from a beautiful sunset!

Well, it's been a little longer than I was hoping since I last did a Beauty Bin post, but never fear! I have combined my empties for August and September so we can have a look at what I have used up as we edge closer towards the end of the year.
This Beauty Bin series has been one of my favourites this year and it truly has been amazing to see the things that I go through the most and the items which I thought I would get through and have been struggling to use up. If you're keen to know how I have gone with my Project Pan Project for 2016, you may want to check out my recent Project Pan Update on the blog which shows what I was able to finish up in around 6 months.
This post may seem like blasphemy, and as a lover of the original Beauty Blender, it does almost feel sacrifical to say that I have found a dupe that I prefer to the original, however it is true!!! With such a great find, I had to dedicate a post to this awesome dupe and share with you all. If you're a big fan of the Beauty Blender but maybe you don't like the pricetag, or if you haven't yet tried the Beauty Blender due to it's price, you will love this post! Keep reading to find out the dupe that I've found and where you can get your hands on one as well.
I struggled a little to compile this month's beauty favourites since I have definitely been sticking to the wide array of amazing products that I have discovered over the past few months. I have found some great base staples that really work for me, and have been sticking to the same lip and mascara combinations. This month I have mostly been trialing out a few new skincare bits here and there and dabbling in new eyeshadows. Keep reading to find out the products I've been enjoying this month!
