I love seeing all the holiday collections. Brands bring out some of the most gorgeous packaging at this time of the year that I know we all dream about adding to our collections. So today I’ve put together some of the products I’ve been lusting over and would make gorgeous presents. View Post
Stila palettes are something that have been on my wishlist for forever and the second the new matte ‘n metal palette appeared on my Instagram feed I knew that was the one I needed first. It’s got the perfect combination of matte and shimmer shades to go from everyday work to dinner with friends, with both warm and cool options. It’s definitely a palette I’ve been reaching for a lot since I got it and I thought it was about time I shared my thoughts with you guys.
I am obsessed with gold/bronzey highlighters so you can bet that when the Anastasia Beverly Hills Sundipped glow kit came out that your girl needed it. The ABH glow kits have been around for a little while now and have been raved about so as soon as this was one released I jumped online, purchased it and then giggled like a little girl for a solid five minutes.

It’s no secret that I have a serious matte lip addiction. I just love the way matte lipsticks look and how long they last on the lips. Unfortunately though matte products can dry out your skin and matte lipsticks do not look pretty on dry and chapped lips!
Luckily for us all though lip scrubs are a thing and we can have perfectly applied lipstick all the time. I had been wanting to get my hands on the Jeffree Star Velour Lip Scrub ever since they were released so when the Black Friday sales came around and Discount Beauty Boutique had 15% off everything I just
needed had to to add one to my order. The lip scrubs retail for $12USD on the Jeffree Star website or $25AUD from most Australian retailers and contain 30g of product, so definitely not the most cost effective product when you compare it to the 25g lip scrubs from Lush that are only $9.95AUD. The Jeffree Star lip scrub comes in four flavours, Rootbeer, Strawberry Gum, Spearmint and Mojito. I opted to get the scrub the the mojito flavour.
I really wanted to love this scrub, I really did.
I love the hard plastic of the packaging, it’s sturdy and I can chuck it in my bag without worrying about it breaking and the sugar mixture going all through my bag. Plus the scent is amazing, the perfect combination of mint and lime with just a hint of rum.
Unfortunately that’s where what I like about the scrub ends. The scrub itself is fairly dry and requires a bit of effort to get the scrub out of the jar. The scrub is a fairly coarse consistency yet despite that it does require me to go over my lips two or three times before it removes all the dry skin, and with the scrub being coarse by the third time it’s almost painful to use. Once my lips are nice and smooth the scrub leaves a thin layer of oil over my lips.
So would I recommend buying this scrub? Honestly no. I’ll keep using it at night to use it up but I won’t be in a rush to go out and repurchase it.
So I couldn’t sleep last night and decided to browse the Mecca website. Never a good idea because it means my wishlist grows by like 50 items but anyway.
So I don’t have any Bobbi Brown products and this may be my first. How pretty is it! <3
Winter may be over but the Lipstick Queen lipstick Bete Noire Possessed in the Intense formula is still at the top on my list!
Palettes are definitely a love of mine at the moment and the By Terry Eye Designer palette in Smokey Nude is one I want but will have to really think about with it’s $130 price tag! I see a few trips to Mecca so I can swatch this baby.
Too Faced does the cutest packaging ever and the packaging for the Love Flush Blush does not disappoint.The Chocolate Soleil Bronzer is the perfect contour shade for me in winter so I need to pick up the Dark Chocolate Soleil for Summer and hope that it’s dark enough for me. The Too Faced Sugar Pop palette is definitely more of a want than a need. Just look at how pretty those colours are!
I’m going to end this wishlist Wednesday post on a high note with this highlighter (haha see what I did there!) from Josie Maran. I have’t seen many swatches of the Argan Enlightenment Illuminising Veil yet but every Josie Maran product I’ve used before has been just gorgeous and I have high hopes with this!
