June 2014 Favourites

All Products

Hello lovelies!

I can’t believe another month has passed and we are now half way through 2014! Being the end of another month it is time for me to share with you all what I have been loving for the past month so let’s get into it. I know that normally in winter people go for a paler look and darker lips and eye looks but despite the freezing weather I have been loving a really bronzed look the last few weeks so you will a lot of bronze coloured products in this month’s favourites. I probably look very out of place wearing extremely summer friendly makeup whilst walking around rugged up and shivering but oh well it’s just what I have been liking lately.

M.A.C Minerlize Blush in Warm Soul –

The first product I have been loving this month is Warm Soul from MAC. This is a really pretty shimmery bronze blush with hints of rose in it. It looks so pretty on the skin and blends beautifully and has been going really well with my bronzed looks I have been loving.

M.A.C Bronzing Powder in Refined Golden –

I got this bronzer as part of the Alluring Aquatics collection but it is available in their permanent range. When it first arrived I wasn’t sure I would like it because it is quite orange toned and has a lot of gold shimmer in it but with a tan it looks really pretty.

Makeup Geek Eyeshadows in Cocoa Bear, Crème Brulee and Bling –

I have been loving these eye shadows in conjunction with the gold base and shadow that I will talk about below to create a really beautiful warm golden eye. I use Crème Brulee in the crease, the gold shadows below on the lid, Cocoa Bear in the outer v and on lower last line and Bling on the brow bone. It is such a beautiful eye look and really makes my blue eyes pop.

Bath and Body Works Candle in Coconut Leaves –

I am obsessed with this scent! It smells like a tropical heaven to me and I find it so relaxing. The notes in this candle are tangerine, papaya and coconut and it smells so delicious! I have been making my own candles lately as I want to go into business selling them and one of my supplies has found a duplicate for this scent in a fragrance oil so I can try and make my own candles that smell like this. I am so excited to try it out!

Arbonne RE9 Firming Body Cream –

I love using this firming cream on my neck and décolletage as that area along with your hands and the parts of your body that show age first so it is important to look after them. This body cream has a really nice light fresh scent and is made from all natural ingredients. I don’t have any wrinkles or anything like that yet so I can’t really tell if it helps with those issues but it feels and smells really nice and I am hoping it is helping to prevent wrinkles and ages skin.

Essence Fix & Matte Translucent Loose Powder –

I have loved this powder for a long time now, it is so finely milled and I use it every day for setting my under eye concealer but have recently been also using it all over my face and I love it! It keeps me matte for hours and because it is so finely milled it doesn’t look cakey. This powder is really inexpensive so I would really recommend checking it out if you are after a new powder. Because it is translucent all skin tones can use it.

Eyeko Skinny Mini Liquid Eyeliner in Black –

This is a sample size that I got for free from beautybay.com when I placed my last order and I have been really loving it this month. The pen has a really fine tip which makes it very easy to get a precise line and the liner is super black and lasts all day long without any smudging at all. I love it!

Maybelline Color Tattoo in 45 Bold Gold and LÓreal Paris Color Infallible Eyeshadow in 027 Goldmine –

As I spoke about before I have been loving using these two in conjunction with the Makeup Geek shadows above to create a really beautiful warm golden eye. I place the color tattoo down first as a base to make the shadow last longer and to make the eye shadow on top pop more. I then place the L’Oreal eye shadow on top and the combination creates the most beautiful gold shade ever!

Tweezerman Leopard Slanted Tweezers –

Let me start by saying I have always hated plucking my eyebrows. I have always just used tweezes from beauty supply stores or Priceline and find it so painful and avoid doing it as much as possible (to the point of letting my eye brows become a disgrace from lack of care!). I have always heard people rave about Tweezerman tweezers but they are soo expensive I took me forever to take the leap and purchase them and I am so glad I finally did. These make plucking my brows a breeze, it doesn’t hurt at all and they are so sharp and slanted that they take out each hair so easily. I love these and wish I had purchased them years ago!

Arbonne Mineral Powder Foundation in Medium Beige and Tan –

I have been loving both of these for different areas, I use the Medium Beige all over my face on top of a CC cream or light foundation and then I use the Tan on my décolletage to give me a tanned look. These have a very slight shimmer in them that gives a really pretty healthy glow. They give a beautiful smooth natural finish and I have been really loving them especially in combination. It gives a lovely tanned glow using the Tan shade down my neck and chest, I highly recommend trying these out. They don’t give enough coverage for me personally alone on my face which is why I like to use a CC cream underneath and the combination gives perfect coverage without being cakey.

M.A.C Matte Lipstick in Enchanted One –

This lipstick is part of the Alluring Aquatic collection and I ummed and arrhed about getting it for ages before going ahead and including it in my order and I am so happy I did. It is a warm peachy/brown nude that I thought would be too dark for me but I actually really love it. The formula is so creamy for a matte and this shade is perfect for everyday and especially with the bronzed looks I have been going for, and who can resist that gorgeous packaging!

That sums up my favourites for this month. Let me know in the comments if you have tried any of these products and also what you have been loving this month, I would love to know.

Where to Buy Bath and Body Works Products in Australia – Bath and Body Works Haul

DSCN2667

Hi Guys!

Today I am going to be doing a haul of Bath and Body Works products and showing where you can purchase them from in Australia.

If you are not familiar with Bath and Body Works they are an American company that sell candles and bath and body products and their products are extremely popular in America especially the candles. I have been wanting to try their candles for a long time as they are raved about by beauty gurus on Youtube but unfortunately they do not have any stores in Australia nor do they ship here.

You can purchase off their website and use a shipping forwarding company to post them to Australia but this always seemed like it would be too expensive by the time you have taxes, currency conversion and the high postage for the candles because they are so heavy so I could never justify doing this. You can also purchase their products on eBay however again they always seemed quite expensive for postage so I have never tried getting them off eBay either.

A few days ago Racheal Jade uploaded a video showing a website that sells Bath and Body Works products in Australia and I nearly jumped through the roof with excitement! The Website is called Bath Body and Home and they have a selection of Bath and Body Works products for sale for Australian residents. http://bathbodyandhome.com/

Their range is not that large but they stock a decent selection and I have managed to find quite a few products I wanted to try. Hopefully as their business grows they will stock more items.

They have a flat rate shipping of $6.95 or free shipping for orders over $100.00 which I think is amazing for Australian prices and also for the weight of the candles. I ordered my items on a Friday and received them Monday morning which I was astounded by! It was so fast and the items came packaged very well with candle protectors and lots of packing peanuts so everything was safe.

I will list the prices below of what I paid, I think the prices are very reasonable and there is not a huge mark up on the American prices for these items (few dollars at most) which I think is great considering they are having to purchase these and have them shipped from America. If you take into consideration the currency conversion, taxes, postage and their handling that I assume they would be paying I think the prices are very fair. Rachel Jade mentioned in her video that they gave her the code easter2014 for 10% and I used this code for both of my orders I have placed and it worked so give that a go to get a discount. I don’t know when it runs out or anything as it was a code they gave Rachael not me.

I am extremely impressed so far with this company, so much so that I just placed another order for more candles! I will do another haul for you guys once those items arrive.

Here is what I got in my first order, so far I am really pleased with the candles and understand what the hype is about. They burn really well and have a great scent throw. The hand sanitisers are nice and smell really good, I hate the smell of normal hand sanitiser!

Mason Jar Candle – Coconut Leaves – $15.95

Description – Transport your senses to the tropics with this fusion of juicy tangerine and papaya that gives way to soothing coconut and vanilla notes.”

I am obsessed with this candle! It is my favourite from everything I purchased and I have purchased a 3 wick candle in this scent in my second order that’s how obsessed with this I am. I love anything coconut and this is just so delicious and makes me feel like I am in a resort on the beach somewhere tropical! Love it!

Mason Jar Candle – Peach Bellini – $15.95

Description – · “A classic Italian cocktail with a twist mixes Bubbly White Peach Tart Blackcurrant Jasmine and a splash of Juicy Orange. Bottoms up!”

This one smells very light and fresh and is really nice. It has the least strongest scent throw out of all three candles.

3 Wick Candle – Lanikai Cconut – $25.95

Description – “Be transported by a blend of sweet coconut milk, sea water and palm leaves inspired by Hawaii’s beautiful Lanikai Beach.”

At first I wasn’t sure If I would like this one, it smells nice and tropical and of course like coconut but there was some note that I couldn’t quite pinpoint that I wasn’t sure about but after burning it a few times I now love it. Like the first one it makes me feel like I am somewhere beautiful and tropical!

Mini Santiser Gel – Caribbean Escape – $2.95

Description – · No time for a holiday? Be whisked away in spirit just from opening the bottle! A sweet tropical blend of Melon Raspberry Nectar and Italian Lemon tempered with Creamy Coconut milk and Raw Sugarcane…Can you feel the breeze of the ocean?!”

This smells deliciously fresh and fruity. I have ordered a candle in this scent and am excited to try this scent in candle form.

Mini Santiser Gel – Market Peach – $2.95

Description – The unmistakable scent of juicy heirloom peaches fresh from the orchard”

This smells so yummy just like fresh peaches! I really hope they get the candle of this scent in soon so I can try it.

Let me know in the comments what your favourite Bath and Body Works products are.

May Blog-A-Thon Day Fifteen – Dusk Sparkling Bellini Candle – My Favourite Candle Ever!

Candle Closed

Just a quick post showing you guys my favourite candle I have ever tried! This is from Dusk and you can find it at your local Dusk store on on their website which I have linked below. This candle smells like heaven! There isnt a description that I can find unfortunately of the notes in this candle but it is just a really fresh sweet fruity fragrance that smells like summer goodness! This candle has a 70 Hr burn time and retails for $25.99.

Candle Tag

I am absolutely obsessed with this candle. You can really smell this candle when you burn it, it fills up the entire room and even when its not lit you can a nice waft of the scent when you walk past it, I really like my candles to have quite a strong scent so I can really smell them when they are burning, if you dont that like or you dont like fruity scents then you may not like this candle.

Candle Inside

I highly recommend popping into your local Dusk store and having a sniff of this one, its soooo good!
