Look to live boldly with the new lipstick collection by Revlon.... 

Super Lustrous Live Boldly Lipstick is all about inspiring women to express themselves with passion, optimism, strength and style. Revlon has recently introduced six limited edition Live Boldly Super Lustrous Lipsticks which come in the boldest shades ever! What makes these lipsticks unique is that they offer amazing impact and are infused with silky and vitamins for that smooth and hydrating finish. (There are no flaky dry bits which is ideal). 

As for the application of these lipsticks, they look to glide on so easily giving you that smooth and consistent application. Also, they're easily buildable too depending on what ideal look you're after. 

These lipsticks are incredibly striking and flattering, as well as creamy and moisturising. They are great for rocking bold looks and there's six to choose from. Pictured below I have swatched four out of six of their shades, being Black Cherry, She-Nomenom, Cherries in the Snow and Boss Lady - which are beautiful looking with its amazing colour payoff.

FRAGRANCE REVIEW: BLACK OPIUM BY YVES SAINT LAURENT EAU DE TOILETTE


Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium is made for an everyday, glamourous perfume. 

This is a glamourous women's fragrance, featuring Black Opium by YSL. The fragrance top notes consists of mandarin essence, pink pepper essence and pear accord. The middles notes consists of orange blossom, jasmine and floral solar; whilst the base notes consists of coffee, patchouli, cedarwood and vanilla. 

Overall, I'm in love with this scent because it lingers on my skin all day long. It offers a rich scent that's not too overpowering which is great. A handy tip would be to apply the fragrance to your pulse points to prolong the scent even more. If you love your floral fragrances, then you may enjoy trying the Black Opium by YSL.

THE AUTUMN COLLECTION 2018: NEW MAKEUP ESSENTIALS AND BEAUTY STAPLES BY ELES


Here are some latest new makeup essentials and beauty staples by ELES which I recently tried and tested...

Get excited for ELE's latest releases which features their new HD Luminous Foundation which offers superior coverage, the Transformation Cleansing Oil which removes impurities without stripping the skin, and their Limited Edition Face and Eye Palette.

Check them out below to learn more: 


Autumn Collection 2018, Limited Edition Face & Eye Palette, RRP $94 

This sleek and versatile compact features shades that are so perfect for Autumn. It helps to add colour and radiance to the rest of your look. This compact comes with a bronzer, a gorgeous blush and two shimmery eye shades. The shades don't contain any nasties and are rich in skin-nurturing ingredients such as vitamins A, E and C. I love this palette for both a day and night look because there are so many options to play with it. The powdered bronzer, blush and eyeshadows are super pigmented and gives of amazing colour payoff. 

Of the shades it includes a Powder Bronzer in Bronzeberry, which helps to provide the cheekbones looking healthy, contoured and radiant; a Mineral Blush in Teaberry, which offers a sheer and rosy finish for cheeks; and Mineral Shadows in Concord and Caramel which are both great for creating a day and night look. 


NEW HD Luminous Foundation, RRP $71 

This foundation felt so silky and light to wear on the skin all day. It literally melts and absorbs onto the skin upon application which helps to create a flawless finish. In terms of coverage, it offers a medium to full skin coverage which leaves your skin looking even and smooth.  Thanks to its Silk Powder, this helps to blur your pores and create a flawless base for your skin, preparing it for an easy makeup application. I love this foundation for when I go out because it helps to minimise any blemishes and imperfections that I have. 


Transformation Cleansing Oil, RRP $53.50 

I enjoyed cleansing off my makeup with the Transformation Cleansing Oil. It doesn't strip the natural oils off the skin and it does an amazing job in leaving your skin feeling hydrated, smooth and so soft. What you'll find when massaging this product on the skin, it will look to turn into a milky emulsion when combined with water. This will help to breakdown your makeup, leaving the skin feeling cleansed and refreshed which is definitely my favourite so far! 

All of the products as mentioned above can be purchased online via www.elescosmetics.com or available in beauty salons and day spas nationally.

GETTING MY FACIAL ON AT HOME FEATURING THE LATEST BATH & BODY ESSENTIALS FROM HARVEST GARDEN


It's not complete without the right bath and face essentials when it comes to a DIY facial at home. 

One particular brand that I've been loving has to be Harvest Garden..their products smell amazing and are so gentle for the skin. Just to give you a quick rundown of who Harvest Garden are; they're a small family Australian made and owned business. All of their products are made with natural products and have not been tested on animals. Their products are free from nasties making them ideal for those after simple and effective bath and skincare products. 

I recently tried out some of their latest essentials from the bath and skincare range for my at home spa and facial. Check them out below: 


Rose Geranium, Patchouli & Lavender Natural Handcrafted Soap, RRP $7.50 

I love the gentle rose and patchouli floral scent that comes with this handcrafted soap. There's also added red clay which helps to replenish and regenerate the skin. It's perfect for use on the face or body if you're after a beautiful scented soap. 


Natural Bath Cubes, RRP $12.95 

For a relaxing bath, I tried out the Natural Bath Cubes in Peppermint by Harvest Garden. You get two moisturising natural bath cubes which have been infused sweet almond oil, aromatic essential oils and natural clays for super soft skin. It definitely helped me to relax thanks to the essential oils and it's a great way to wind down. 


Activated Charcoal, Licorice Root and Gotu Kola Facial Masque, RRP $25.95 

I enjoyed using this particular facial masque because you get the enjoyment of mixing up a paste. The activated charcoal, licorice root and gotu kola facial masque works to remove any nasty toxins on the skin, and really looks to soothe and repair the skin. So all you need to do is look to mix 1 teaspoon of clay with 1/2 teaspoon of water. Use the brush included to apply a layer all over the face. Leave for about 10 minutes until you feel complete dryness. Next, rinse off using a warm wash cloth. Your skin will look glow and feel so rejuvenated. It's a great way to detox the skin about once a week.

INTRODUCING THE NEW VELVET MATTE FOUNDATION & BLUSH UP COMPLEXION PALETTES BY DESIGNER BRANDS


Designer Brands just launched their latest Velvet Matte Foundation and I got the chance to try it out. 


Get ready for the Fall/Autumn season because it's time to rug up and accessorise with comfortable scarves and knits. As for makeup, we'll be seeing warmer shades and tone come into play. 

For a foundation matte coverage, I look to try out the Matte Velvet Foundation and the Limited Edition Blush Up Complexion Palettes by Designer Brands. These beauty products are so perfect for the Fall/Autumn season because it doesn't leave the skin looking too oily. Plus, the foundation is infused with some skin loving ingredients such as Shea Butter, Aloe Vera, Vitamin C and E. 

Here are some newbies from Designer Brands that are so perfect for Fall/Autumn 2018:


Velvet Matte Foundation, Designer Brands, RRP $16.99

The new Velvet Matte Foundation looks to deliver a buildable oil-control formula that leaves your skin coverage looking matte and flawless. It certainly doesn't have that 'dewy' look if you were wondering as it's more matte and offers a medium to full coverage. I felt that this foundation offered a smooth and natural look, where it didn't leave any creasing at all. I used a Beauty Blender spritzed with a makeup setting spray to apply the foundation onto my skin. This helps to blend and give you more of a natural look. I found this foundation to last all day long on my skin and it's really lightweight, making it so comfortable to wear for all day long. 

Furthermore, the Velvet Matte Foundation contains skin loving ingredients such as Shea Butter, Aloe Vera, Vitamin C and E as well as a Peptide Infusion which leaves your skin looking plump and firm.
