The 5 Classic Red Lipsticks You Need This Holiday Season

The Christmas season is definitely well underway and it has inspired me to share my top 5 red lipsticks with you all in case you are hunting for the perfect red lip for a special occasion you may have coming up. Personally, I'm not a huge red lip lover myself. It's a shade that I often get compliments when I wear, but I tend to steer more towards bright pinks and fuchsias rather than a classic red. However, when you find the right red lipstick shade, it can really become the hero of your makeup look. I love pairing a red lip with a minimal eye. Today I am taking you through my favourite red lipsticks that contain easy to wear formulas, bold colour and longevity! Keep reading to find out my recommendations.



My Customer Service Experience With Mecca Maxima



For any of my readers that live in Australia and New Zealand, you would know that Mecca Maxima has really changed our relationship with makeup and the way that we have access to high-quality and high-end brands that were previously only available to us through online retailers (if they shipped to Australia that is). It has been great to be able to swatch brands in store like Stila, Urban Decay, NARS and Too Faced that were inaccessible to aussie makeup lovers in the past. This is something that I probably took for granted coming from Canada, where some of these brands are available at our local pharmacies like Shoppers Drug Mart and I had easy access to so many high-end makeup brands. Today, I just thought I'd talk to you about a recent customer service experience I've had with Mecca just in case you haven't yet shopped there or if you may be curious about their services and what they are all about.


Beauty Bin: November Empties 2016


Well, I am late coming to you with these empties from November, but I promise you I have been working hard to finish off products and this month's empties post is quite large!!! This will probably be my last empties post for 2016, unless you wanted a little review and summary of how many products I managed to get through during the year. Just let me know if that would be of interest to you. If you'd like to read my other Beauty Bin posts, you can click here.


November Coffee Break: 2016


November has been left in the dust and we are well and truly into December and (hopefully) ready for the festive season ahead!!! I am an absolute Christmas fanatic, so I couldn't be more happy to break out the Christmas-scented candles, decorations, egg nog and advent calendars. I love the feeling that December has about it, even if it feels strange being in a warm climate! I haven't forgotten about my promise to keep you all updated on the daily happenings in my life, so I am here to give you a little update from the past month and let you know what I've been up to. If you'd like to read some of my other coffee break updates you can find them here.



November Monthly Favourites: 2016


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!
