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!

Essence Cosmetics Review

Essence Cosmetics review

Essence Cosmetics is a super cute and affordable makeup brand from Europe which is currently stocked in New Zealand by Farmers. The range is bright, colourful and fun, as well as being completely cruelty free. Recently I’ve been testing out a few of their products, a mascara, concealer and mini makeup sponges, and here’s what I think! Continue reading

NYX Haul – Purchased from Farmers Queen Street

NYX Farmers Queen Street

With NYX hitting the shelves at the new Farmers Queen Street, nothing could hold me back from a NYX Haul.

Lipidol After Shower Oil Review – Is it just baby oil?

lipidol review

I’ll be honest, when I first saw the Lipidol After Shower oil I thought “is this just baby oil?” – and now I know that it kind of is, but also it kind of isn’t. This body oil is made to replace and lock in moisture after you get out of the hot shower (which we know can be pretty drying on the skin). I always have the best intentions of using body moisturiser after a shower but it hardly ever happens. I don’t know if it’s a time factor or just the effort, however I decided to buy the oil and really give it a good shot. The fact that it is from the makers of Bio-Oil was also quite a selling point to me and it seemed like it wouldn’t upset my sensitive skin. Continue reading



Random Weekend Haul #2 – Farmers, The Warehouse, Lush and a Big Bucket Sale

random weekend haul 2 This Saturday I ended up grabbing a few items on a day out and about – which turned into a bit of an unexpected random weekend haul – but seriously almost every store I walked into was having a sale. I also haven’t gone out and purchased make up in what feels like truly forever as I have decided to be bit more careful with my money at the moment. But it’s cool right? Because almost everything was on sale (nod your head with me here). Any ways have a peek at the bargains I picked up! Continue reading
