Top Beauty Products of 2016 – Part 2

2017

Here is Part 2 of my top beauty products of 2016. In Part 1 I focused more on my base and face products and found I am a bit of a creature of habit when it comes to my favourites. Today I’m sharing eye and lip products along with a bit of skincare. There’s a real mixture of brands here, are you the same or do you tend to stick to the same brand for a particular part of the face? Continue reading



Top Beauty Products of 2016 – Part 1

2017

Today I’m sharing my top beauty products of 2016! 2016 was a big year for beauty, there was sandbagging, strobing, spray on nail polish, lipsticks with real flowers inside them and who can mention 2016 beauty trends without giving Kylie and her Lip Kits a wink? I tried out quite a lot of new products and brands in 2016, but reviewing my favourites is quite interesting as I can see I have some ultimate favourites which may never change! However, I am very open to finding new favourite products in 2017! This is part 1 featuring mainly face and base products. Continue reading



May empties

Here are my May empties! My Garnier Perfect Blur and Loreal Infallible primers are empty. The Blinc mascara I received in my Talk Beauty NZ event goodie bag has dried up, I’ve hit pan on my MAC SkinFinish and I’m already on another bottle of Elevens’ Miracle Hair Treatment. In a bid to be better at removing my makeup before bed I’ve used up my travel size Blue Coconut Coconut Oil, at the same time my Beauty Blender (the first one I ever tried!) is going into retirement.  Continue reading



MAC Cosmetics FUTURE Collection

MAC Cosmetics future collection

The Future Collection from MAC Cosmetics is currently available in stores and online. It’s limited edition though so you’ll have to act quickly! This collection is based around “hyper-luminous Mineralize” products including lip, eye, nail and face products. There’s silvers, blues, gloss and shimmers. It’s a bit out there, but it’s totally stunning! MAC Cosmetics sent me three products from the range to try out, a lipstick, a lip glass and a Skinfinish – which is my currently my ultimate love and possible favourite MAC product of all time!

My Favourite MAC Cosmetics products

MAC Favorites

These are my favourite MAC Cosmetics products. The ones which I re-buy and use on a regular basis, the kind I would consider to be makeup essentials and the products I would recommend if someone was buying MAC products for the first time. MAC Cosmetics has such a huge range of products that I find it interesting my favourites are mostly base products and quite kind of plain. I guess it goes to show that the classics are often the best! Continue reading



MAC Cosmetics Flamingo Park review

MAC flamingo park collection

MAC Cosmetics new collection Flamingo Park is out on March the 7th at selected locations. I was lucky enough to be sent a few products to review! This range is full of pinks and peaches which is totally my thing and it’s also extra special because Flamingo Park is limited edition. So if something catches your eye you’ll need to grab it quick, this collection is going to be crazy popular! Continue reading





MAC Haul

IMG_1172

So somehow I got to the end of the week and realised I had gathered up quite a MAC Haul – nine different products to be exact (don’t tell my boyfriend!) Since I acquired all these products in a few different ways I thought I’d show you them and also chat about where/how I got them, as I don’t often actually buy MAC from a physical MAC store.
