Haul: Mecca Maxima + First Impressions

On Monday, I was in Brisbane city with my sister-in-law and I had my first experience at Mecca Maxima. I had been drooling over their website for a few months now, but the in-store experience is definitely way more fun! I love swatching things on my hands to see colours on my own skintone, and check out the selections, brand by brand. I had a really good time, and chatted for a while with the lovely staff there. They were really friendly and helpful. I picked up some new items that I'm really excited to show you, so read on to see what I got ...

My Beauty Diet: Shopping My Own Collecton

The dreaded words .... SPENDING BAN. Whenever I read them I cringe a little but so I'm making up my own rules to limit my purchases over the next few weeks. As some of you may have already saw through my Instagram, I have been on a beauty diet for a few weeks now! I've been cutting out new purchases, and limiting myself to shop my own makeup collection.

MAC: Alluring Aquatic Collection Review + Swatches

Some people get heat palipattions at the sighting of a new MAC Limited Edition Collection, others are de-sensitized as there are so many it sometimes becomes hard to keep up with them all. I'm generally more of the latter so I so apologize if you may be sick of hearing about the MAC Alluring Aquatic Collection. There has been a lot of buzz and hype around this limited edition collection spreading quickly across Youtube, Beauty Blogs, Instagram, and throughout the beauty community. I think this collection was very sought after because the packaging is very eye-catching and unique. It is decorated in metallic aqua packaging with water droplets actually built onto the products which you can feel when you touch them. This is a point of difference from any other MAC products that I own, and I think it is an aspect that makes this collection stand apart from the others ...

Models Prefer Moisture Lust Glossy Lip Tints: Swatches + First Impressions

Today I'm doing a quick first impressions post on what I think of the Models Prefer Moisture Lust Glossy Lip Tints. These are available from Priceline for just $7.99 AUD (although I couldn't seem to find them on their website) and are an affordable alternative to the Revlon Kissable Balm Stains which are a lot more expensive at $17.95 AUD, also similar to the Covergirl Jumbo Gloss Balms which are $12.95 AUD.
