Lioele AC Control Night Spot

The Lioele AC Control Night Spot is a product specifically created to target pimples and problem spots and make them disappear literally over night. It’s quickly become my go to product for any small white heads that pop up or those super frustrating bumps which you just know are going to develop into something sinister! Luckily the Lioele AC Control Night Spot dries them up quick before they have even had a chance to come through.Β  Continue reading



Kira Kira Crate – May

Kira Kira Crate May

The May Kira Kira Crate from Japan Crate was full of goodies! This month I received six full sized products along with the handy mini magazine which is full english instructions, product descriptions and beauty tutorials. I kind of purchased this box by mistake, however once it arrived I was so happy that I had kept my subscription going as these are all products I will happily try out and use. Continue reading



MAC Cosmetics Fruity Juicy Collection

Mac Cosmetics Fruity Juicy

The MAC Cosmetics Fruity Juicy collection is out in all MAC Stores in NZ today. This is a collection I have had my eye on for a long time! The bright tropical theme is splashed over the packaging and the products, and can even be experience through a delicious coconut scent. This is by far the most fun and exciting collection I’ve seen from MAC this year and I was lucky enough to get my hands on one of the products a few weeks ago now, so I can confirm that this range 100% lives up to its bright hype!

Too Faced Natural Love Palette

Too Faced Natural Love Palette

The Too Faced Natural Love Palette is out now at Mecca Maxima! I discovered this palette online a couple of months ago and absolutely fell in love! In fact I was so obsessed that when my partner went over to America recently I begged him to bring the palette back for me from Sephora as I just couldn’t wait. Every single one of the 30 shades is so pretty and its range of matte and shimmers gives you so much variety on looks and finishes. I would definitely say that it is the most versatile eye shadow palette I have, and it’s just sooo beautiful! Continue reading





Mini MAC Haul

Mini MAC haul

I recently ended up with a mini MAC haul after deciding it was time to stock up on some essentials. I needed a new Pro Longwear Foundation and wanted a new Pro Longwear Concealer in a slightly darker shade. I hadn’t done any online shopping in awhile so after spending some time on Nordstrom I made an order with two extra additions, Β a new lipstick in the shade ‘Brave’ and a Lavender Fix+ Spray from the Work It Out collection. Continue reading



The Kira Kira Crate from Japan Crate

Kira Kira Crate Japan Crate

The Kira Kira Crate from Japan Crate is one of their 4 different subscription crates which you can order as a one off or as a monthly subscription. The Kira Kira Crate is a Japanese beauty box which ships out each month containing a range of 6-8 different beauty products. I have tried quite a few different beauty subscription boxes in the past and always find them a fun delivery and also a great way to try new products. The last international beauty box I ordered was a Meme Box which is based on Korean beauty products so I was keen to see how these Japanese goodies would compare! Continue reading



Stila Stay All Day Foundation Review

stila Stay All day foundation and concealer kit

The Stila Stay All Day Foundation is an oil free formula which is said to provide medium coverage with a matte finish which ‘stays all day’. Before being introduced to this product my only experience with Stila was being a massive fan of their Stay All day Liquid Liner. Years ago a makeup artist used this foundation on me and I loved the finish along with it’s staying power, so I picked up the Stay All day Foundation, Concealer and Brush Kit during one of my Thailand hauls. But for some reason I only very recently opened it up to use after I found my MAC Pro Longwear completely empty. I’m gutted I didn’t start using it earlier because it fits my skin like a glove!!!

Beauty Bliss Auckland Store Opening

Beauty Bliss Auckland store

This weekend, popular online makeup store Beauty Bliss opened it’s Auckland store in NewMarket. The opening kicked off with an event on Saturday with goodie bags for the first 20 people through the door, cupcakes and product demonstrations.

One of my best friends and I decided to head in to check it all at what we thought was an early time to maybe have a chance at a goodie bag. But turns out some girls had been there since 3am with more arriving to line up at 5am! We went and had breakfast and checked out a few other stores before lining up to get inside. It’s not often I head in to NewMarket so it was good to have a wander around. Continue reading



Remington Straightening Brush Review

Remington straightening brush review

I’ve been straightening my hair for years now and I’ve used a wide range of flat irons and products along the way, but I’ve never used anything like the Remington Keratin and Argan Oil Straightening Brush. This straightener is a plug in device which straightens and smooths while you comb it through your hair just like using a normal paddle style hair brush. I was sceptical at how this would hold up against my beloved GHD’s, however I’ve found it does a few things that my GHD doesn’t. Continue reading
