[LOOK BOOK FOR THIS AUTUMN/WINTER 17' ACCESSORIES COLLECTION FEAT. A SELECTION FROM THE FLESH AND BLOOD BY HANSEL RANGE]


Hello everyone, 

For this Autumn and Winter, I have compiled a look book for a new accessory brand called Hansel where I'll be featuring their latest Flesh and Blood collection. 

Hansel is a boutique, fashion and jewellery label that's designed in Melbourne. Their collection is inspired by classic and bold heroines, making them so easy to pair with just about any outfit. Their jewellery is made from non allergenic brass base metal and is plated with either 18K Gold, 999 Sterling Silver, Rose Gold or with a light bronze finish. The pieces have been coated with an allergy free layer which helps to increase its durability. Their pieces are made with quality and what's better is that they're super affordable. When it comes to jewellery, it's all about the quality that matters for me. 

So for this Autumn and Winter, it's all about the unique pieces that make a statement. I've paired three pieces from Hansel's Flesh and Blood Collection I to really show you how you can achieve a chic and stylish look. Accessories really do make a big difference to your outfit and it's all about choosing the right accessories to go with it. It can take some time to mix and match some pieces, but it's definitely worth trying on to see what works for you. As for these stylish and new pieces by Hansel, I can't wait to show you guys what they're all about.

LOOKBOOK - WINTER/AUTUMN 17' ACCESSORIES FEATURING THE FLESH AND BLOOD COLLECTION I BY HANSEL 


From left to right: Sterling Silver Ball Earrings (RRP $60), Delicate Silver Ball Bracelet with Pearl (RRP $65) & Short Sterling Silver necklace with child's profile pendant (RRP $85) 


Delicate Silver Ball Bracelet with Pearl - Hansel 

This is a gorgeous delicate 999 sterling silver plated ball bracelet which is so perfect to be worn for any special event or occasion. It definitely has that "charm" like feel to it but I am glad that the charms dangles under one spot of the bracelet, making it appear more classy and sophisticated looking. This bracelet is made with a high quality non allergenic brass base metal and finished off with an allergy free sealer for increased durability. The bracelet does come in fine ball chain which is very simple looking. It also features amethyst glass beads, a pearl droplet, a flower charm and a small cut glass pendant - which all adds a touch of personality to the bracelet itself. The details on this bracelet is just beautiful and when paired with any outfit, it just adds that simple touch of elegance to it. 



 Sterling Silver Ball Earrings - Hansel

These simple sterling silver ball earrings is detailed with small turquoise beads which really adds a touch of colour to the sterling silver. It's made from non allergenic brass base metal, plated in 999 sterling silver and coated with an allergy free sealer for that extra durability. This pair features large hooks and it's not too heavy on the ears which is ideal when it comes to dangling earrings. It's definitely suitable for those with sensitive ears as it doesn't cause any irritations at all. This stunning piece adds a touch of exquisiteness to your outfit and it looks to draw all of the attention straight to it. It's very feminine looking and can be worn on a casual or dressy basis. 



Silver necklace with child's profile pendant - Hansel 

This is a short combined chain necklace which features a child's profile as its pendant. This piece is very unique and the silhouette pendant adds a touch of mystery and playfulness to your overall outfit. It's a high quality allergy brass base metal chain necklace, with a 999 sterling silver plating and sealed in an allergenic coating for durability. This piece can easily be matched with any outfit as it's a fun looking necklace and would be so perfect for Autumn and Spring coming. It can easily be worn with a casual outfit as it's not too overly dramatic to be worn. 

All of the pieces are now available through Hansel's official website https://www.hansel.com.au/

[HOW TO SMOOTH AND BANISH DARK EYE CIRCLES AND WRINKLES - FEATURING MY TRIED AND TESTED REVIEW OF LAMAV'S ANTI-DARK CIRCLE EY GEL + FIRMING EYE LOTION]


Hello beauties, 

Let's put the focus back to eye products that help us to banish dark eye circles and smooth out wrinkles and fine lines. I tested some new eye products by LaMav, a new brand I've come across to see whether it would help to improve the skin area underneath my eyes. Find out more below...

The LaMav Organic Skincare is a new brand that I've recently tested out. They're Made in Australia, are 100% vegan, have not been tested on animals and are free from nasties being silicones, parabens, petrochemicals and more. The brand is practically safe to use in the longer run as it's made with certified organic ingredients. I'm quite happy that I managed to stumbled across this brand as their eye products are truly a must have! 

The LavMav products are available at your nearest stockist here. 

Furthermore, I tested out two products from their eye care range being their Anti Dark-Circle Eye gel and Firming Eye Lotion, to really see whether it would help to tone and smooth out my skin's texture over time. If you're looking to reduce the appearance of your dark circles and not sure which product to choose, then keep on reading because I'm going to explain how I was able to reduce the appearance of my dark circles over time. 

Hope you enjoy the read x

Anti Dark-Circle Eye Gel 
- RRP $34.95


If you're looking to reduce the appearance of your dark circles, then you're going to need an eye gel that features an advanced formula. The Anti-Dark circle product is a light and cooling eye gel which immediately lightens, revives and rejuvenates the area around your eyes. It contains Vitamin C, Chlorella Vulgaris and Rumex Extract which de-puffs your dark circles, giving a more firmer and smoother appearance to it.

I've been using this eye gel for just over a month now and I can already notice visibly improved results, with the area appearing smoother and dark circles reduced in its appearance. The fact that it has a brightening effect to really brightens up the area, it makes the skin under your eyes appear less dull and tired looking. This eye gel is made for all skin types to use and is essential if you're looking to target under the eye dark circles and puffiness.

Firming Eye Lotion - RRP $34.95

The firming eye lotion has actually been awarded the 'Best Eye Cream' back in 2010 by the Nature and Health Magazine. The eye lotion comes in a very soft and velvety texture that looks to rejuvenate and transforms the eye area. This eye lotion is best used to target anti-ageing as it helps to smooth out any lines and wrinkles around the eye area. 

Once applied to under the areas of the eyes, I noticed an instant tightening effect and was so amazed by how quickly it was working for me. With continued use of the Firming Eye lotion, you can look to expect your skin to look more visibly lifted and toned. Thanks to the properties of the Bio-Actives in this formula, it really helps to you to achieve more of a firmer skin appearance which is always ideal.

[IT'S TEA TIME: CREATORS OF ARKADIA ADD NEW EXCITING FLAVOUR FEATURING THEIR CHAI TEA SPICE]


Happy weekends all, 

When it comes to winding down with a cup of Chai tea or even hot cocoa, Arkadia offers a range that naturally antioxidants and does not contain any artificial colours, sweeteners or preservatives.  

Arkadia, is an Australian made and owned beverage brand that offers cafe style indulgent drinks that's perfect for an afternoon tea break. They are well stocked at leading supermarkets including Coles and Woolworths and I tried out three particular products from their range being: Chai Tea Matcha, Drinking Chocolate 24% Cocoa and Chai Tea Spice (which is their latest release). 

The Arkadia beverage team have been creating exciting flavours for up to 20 years so you can imagine their great understanding of ingredients and flavours in looking to create a great cup of tasting chai tea. 

I'm a big tea lover myself and nothing beats winding down on my lounge with a cup of Chai tea or hot cocoa in hand...especially when it's a Sunday afternoon. 

So let's get straight into the results of what I thought about the range: 
  • Chai Tea Spice - RRP $6.99 - Starting with their latest beverage release, this range follows a traditional Indian chai tea recipe with a black tea base - along with a secret blend of exotic flavours and aromatic spices. It's also 98% fat free so can literally have one cup a day. I simply placed two teaspoons of this tea into a standard cup, followed with hot water. I didn't have to add any sugars because trust me, it has just the right amount of sweetness to it. Knowing that other chai teas can be overpowering, this particular tea was nowhere near it and it's great because that means it's bearable. The Chai Tea Spice makes a lovely cuppa for an afternoon tea break. 
  • Chai Tea Matcha - RRP $6.99 - I've never tried a combination Chai Tea and Matcha before, but now thanks to Arkadia, I was able to experience that. This tea is 99% fat free and is full of your necessary antioxidants from the green tea and can be enjoyed as a normal cup of tea or a frappe style. This product is 100% natural which means that no artificial colours, sweeteners or preservatives have been added, making it better for you to enjoy on a day to day basis. I quite enjoyed this cup of tea although it was a tad sweet for my liking so I am going to resort to just half or one teaspoon of the Chai Tea Matcha. 
  • Drinking Chocolate - RRP $4.40 - This hot chocolate tastes exactly like a cafe style blend which is why I somewhat enjoyed this drink. It has a very smooth and creamy texture to it and I can really taste the rich chocolate which is delightful. There's no need to add sugar into it because I felt that it had the right amount of sweetness level to it. If you're interested in looking to try a premium blend, then do check this hot chocolate out the next time you're at Coles or Woolworths

For more information, you can check out Arkadia's official website here

[ECOTOOLS CELEBRATES 10 YEARS WITH A BEAUTY MAKEOVER FEATURING THEIR NEW MODERN ECO COLLECTION]


Hello beauties! 

EcoTools recently celebrated 10 years of beauty with a makeover with their NEW Modern Eco Collection of gorgeous brushes...

EcoTools unveiled their latest Modern Eco Collection of brushes as they celebrated their 10 years which is incredible. In this collection you'll see improved rebranding and new product innovation. The new range definitely looks very modern and edgy, plus it even includes their first-ever make-up sponge that's made from plant based materials which makes it practically a vegan product. The new look of these brushes are definitely more sophisticated looking and they still have an elevated performance to them which is essential when looking to achieve a flawless make-up finish. 

And if you were curious to find out what the new updates to the brush collection includes, check out the below: 
  • The make-up brushes have been re-designed which means that you'll be seeing more lightweight and tapered brush handles made from renewable bamboo. The handles are definitely more sleeker looking and have been improved for more comfort and performance, 
  • The bristles feature a nice ombre effect which looks lovely, 
  • The actual packaging is now more informative and it's perfect for newbies starting out with the brushes, 
  • All of the 2017 collection is made out of renewable and recyclable materials which is amazing. 

Curious to learn more about the brushes I've tried out from their New Modern Eco Collection? 

Keep on reading beauties x


Full Powder Brush 

I've been picking up this brush everyday and so far I've been loving this incredibly soft brush which features 70,000 bristles. I felt that it helped to evenly distribute my powders onto my face very well and it's so perfect for if you're trying to achieve a matte finish. This brush gives you a full coverage thanks to its soft and full bristles. 


Perfecting Blender Duo 

These sponges are 100% vegan and latex free making them super eco-friendly. It's best used for your liquid and cream make-up. This is EcoTool's first ever beauty sponge that's made from 70% plant based materials which consists of Sugar Cane, USDA certified materials and renewable plant based contents. This duo includes a Base Blender and a Detail Blender which is designed to give you a flawless make-up application. The larger sponge feels soft and allows for a buildable coverage, whilst the smaller sponge is made so that you can spot conceal precise areas of your skin. For all of my full and heavy coverage make-up, I've been relying on these sponges to help me achieve a more smoother and even coverage. 


Ultimate Concealer Duo 

This duo comes with two handy brushes designed to cover and blend your imperfections. You get a Detail brush which is ideal for spot concealing specific areas, whilst the Airbrush concealer brush helps to blend out the area for a smoother finish for your make-up. 


Six Piece Starter Collection 

This set is perfect for a new make-up beginner as it features a six piece collection (including a cosmetic bag which comes handy). So essentially there are five brushes which includes: Blush, Concealer, Shading, Spoolie and an Angled Liner which is so perfect for basic and everyday make-up. These are all of the brushes I would use for pretty much an everyday look and what's better is that you get all of that in just the one collection. I really love this collection because it's great for when you're travelling. 


Skin Perfecting Brush 

This brush is perfect for BB and CC creams as it allows you to blend these products evenly and flawlessly on the skin. Thanks to its domed and angled bristles, it helps to blur out any imperfections so that you get a nice, airbrushed look. This brush would only offer a low coverage - so  if you're looking for more of a heavier coverage, then I would recommend you trying out their Perfecting Blender Duo instead. As I do use BB and CC creams only a regular basis, this brush is just perfect for me! 


Seamless Stippling Brush 

How interesting does this stippling brush look? It's best used with liquid and cream make-up so that you get a well blended and flawless look. This brush feels super soft and its duo fiber bristles allows you "layer" on your foundation and cream for more of a smoother and airbrushed look. This brush offers a low coverage but it's also great for highlighters and blushes.

[MY AMAZING BEAUTY FINDS FEATURING LANOLIPS TINTED BALM IN SPF30 + THE ORIGINAL GUMMY BLENDER - SILICONE MAKE UP SPONGE REVIEW]



Hello beauties, 

Happy Friday! I hope you're all well and excited for the weekends? In this post, I look to share my end of the week interesting beauty finds featuring the Lanolips Tinted Balm and The Original Gummy Blender. Curious? Check out the below to learn more. 

Wow...Friday has finally arrived and what better way to finish it off with my amazing beauty finds for the week. Featuring the Lanolips Tinted Lip Balms in SPF30, these are great for the miserable and cold weather that's lurking around Sydney, Australia at the moment. You will be pleased to know that the Tinted Lip Balms by Lanolips are incredibly nourishing and hydrating for the lips. 

Furthermore, I have finally tried out The Original Gummy Blender which has been highly rated on social media over these past few months. Does it really live up to its hype? This high-grade silicon make up applicator is perfect if you don't want to make a mess with your cream concealers and foundations...but keep on reading to find out whether it worked or not. 

Let's get right into my full thoughts x 


Lanolips Tinted Balm in SPF30 in Rhubarb (Top swatch) and Rose (Bottom swatch), RRP $14.99 

I always love a good tinted lip balm because you get the benefit of having nourishing lips along with a tint of colour to it. The first time I tried out Lanolips Tinted Lip Balm in SPF30, I was impressed by the formulation and how nourishing it made my lips feel. It offers lip conditioning benefits of lanolin and Vitamin E which leaves your lips feeling softer and hydrated. Plus, you get the little extra sun protection as it contains SPF30 which is perfect fir everyday wear. The colour shades of Rhubarb and Rose are very natural looking when applied onto the lips. It doesn't have a sticky feeling to it which is why I've been applying it onto my lips for everyday wear (It's soooo nourishing). The texture comes in a buttery consistency which blends easily onto the lips. The lip balm looks to stay on the lips for a couple of hours or so and I'd highly recommend for you to pick this up if you suffer from dry lips. 


The Original Gummy Blender, 
RRP $12 

I'm sure some of you have heard about the silicon make up applicator trending through social media and Youtube. I tried The Original Gummy Blender (RRP for $12) and to see what the fuss was all about. The silicone make up applicator looks to blend your cream foundations, concealers and anything that comes in the form of liquids. You could say it's an alternative for your brushes and sponges because I found that it doesn't use as much foundation as I would with a brush (Talk about minimising product wastage!). This is because the Gummy Blender doesn't soak up as much product as you would with other beauty sponges or your usual make up brushes. Another positive that I found about the silicone make up applicator is that it's super easy to clean, simply use soap and water to rinse and VOILA it's like brand new again. However, for beauty sponges and make-up brushes, it takes some time for them to dry overnight. 

So when it comes to blending with using the Gummy Blender, it works well for lighter coverage products rather than heavy foundations and concealers. You can look to use this product for contouring or spot concealing because it doesn't require heavy product usage.

As compared to other beauty sponges, the silicone blender is definitely more durable. (Who here has gone through so many beauty sponges?) As for the shape of the Gummy Blender, I only wished that it came in a larger circular form, so that I can look to apply it more evenly onto the face as well as cover more surface space. But...I guess the current shape makes it easy to get into hard to reach areas, allowing you to conceal those areas more effectively and easily. 

The Gummy Blender doesn't harbour any bacteria as compared to using other beauty sponges over time which is a great thing to consider about it. For application of your usual foundations and concealers, I felt that the Gummy Blender required more dabbing motions in order to blend well. Comparing this to other beauty sponges, it definitely uses less product and blends in naturally well on the skin. 

Overall, I was able to tackle the Gummy Blender with ease throughout my make-up application. It does require more blending and tapping motions as compared to using a make-up brush and other sponges. The great thing is that you're not wasting product which is ideal if you're using expensive foundations and concealers.

Have you guys tried any of the above mentioned products? 

Let me know on your thoughts,

[THE POWER OF BIO-OIL FOR WINTER: A SPECIALIST SKINCARE PRODUCT THATS HELPS WITH SCARS, STRETCH MARKS, UNEVEN SKIN TONE, AGEING + DEHYDRATED SKIN]


Hello everyone, 

Did you know Bio-Oil helps to improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks and uneven skin tone? Thanks to its unique formulation (PurCellin Oil), it helps to improve ageing and dehydrated skin. More below. 

Fact: Bio-Oil has won at least 72 skincare awards and has become the No.1 selling scar and stretch mark product in 11 countries since it launched in 2002. 

And why has it become so popular? It's a miracle product that provides the skin with the necessary ingredients and building blocks to repair itself. Personally, I've been using Bio-Oil for a while now and already I am astounded by the skincare benefits that it looks to deliver. It helps to even out your skin tone as well as leaving your skin looking more hydrated and healthier once again. What I love about Bio-Oil is that it's no where near the greasy stage, in fact it absorbs really quickly and it's very lightweight on the skin. I would occasionally apply on some Bio-Oil during the evenings, that way my skin reaps the much needed plant extracts and vitamins over night. 

The other key ingredients included in Bio-Oil apart from PurCellin Oil include, Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Calendula Oil, Lavender Oil, Rosemary Oil and Chamomile Oil. 

So what about the main benefits of using Bio-Oil? There are various skincare uses that Bio-Oil helps to achieve which includes of the below: 

  • Scars - Bio-Oil is perfect for smoothing out any new and old scars. With continued use, it can help to improve your skin's appearance over time. Scars will always be permanent and Bio-Oil is here to help improve its appearance. 

  • Stretch Marks/Cellulite - I added cellulite into this category because I tried out Bio-Oil to help target my stretch marks and cellulite prone areas. Bio-Oil certainly helps to improve the appearances of any signs of stretch marks as well as cellulite because it looks to even out your skin's texture, making it feel tighter and more firm. 

  • Improves uneven skin tone - If you have any pigmentation marks or you feel that your skin is feeling a tad rough, then the Bio-Oil comes into play to really improve your skin's appearance as well as skin tone. I applied Bio-Oil onto some parts of my face to look to target rough textured surfaces as well as any signs of uneven skin tone. 

  • Ageing skin - With the benefits of PurCellin Oil - it's full of the much needed Vitamins and botanical extracts which is great for smoothing and toning any wrinkled skin on both your face and body. 

  • Dehydrated skin - Let's talk about dry and dull looking skin that comes around during the colder seasons. Dehydrated skin affects almost all of us which is why you need a product just like the Bio-Oil, so that it can help to hydrate your skin once again. At night, I would apply Bio-Oil to the dry parts of my face and body and the following day, I'd wake up with hydrated feeling skin.

Some clinical trials have resulted in the below: 
  • 92% of subjects showed an improvement of their scars after 8 weeks. There was a continuous improvement over the duration of the study, with significant results noted as early as week 2,(proDERM, 2010) 
  • After 8 weeks, 100% of subjects showed an improvement in the appearance of existing stretch marks,(proDERM, 2010) 
  • The appearance of uneven skin tone improved over the duration of trial, with 93% of participants showing an improvement after 6 weeks.(MEDUNSA, 2005) 

Where to purchase: 
  • Currently on sale at Priceline for $11.99 for 60ml; $19.99 for 125ml and $27.99 for 200ml. 
  • Available at selected pharmacies and leading supermarkets. 


My go to product for dehydrated and uneven skin tone, featuring Bio-Oil for everyday use.

Have you tried the Bio-Oil before? And did it help with your skin? 

Let me know on your thoughts as I'd love to hear from you all! 

Cheers,

[THE SIZE OF YOUR BRISTLES COUNT...FEATURING A MUST HAVE - THE PROFESSIONAL MAXI DETANGLING BRUSH BY DESSATA FOR THICK AND CURLY HAIR]



Hello beauties 

If there's a must have essential you should always have in your handbag, it has got to be the new Dessata MAXI detangling brush. 

The size of your bristles do count when it comes to detangling your hair in the most effective way. For 2017, ultra long, shiny and straight locks are so in for this season which is why you need to really invest in a good hair brush, namely the Dessata Professional Maxi detangling brush. Dessata have recently launched an even better, bigger and bolder brush called the Dessata MAXI detangling brush. 

This brush is perfect for those with curl and thick hair because it looks to comb through any tangled and knotty ends. The Dessata MAXI actually offers 30% longer bristles as compared to their original, which means that it is able to penetrate hair deeper as well as looking to gently massage your scalp. (The massage feels good too which is a bonus).

The Dessata MAXI is made from a firmer compound that detangles hair in lesser time which means less effort is needed to tug the hair. The Dessata MAXI features 346 triple length bristles and holds so comfortably well in the hand - making it my favourite go to brush for everyday. For smoother and softer feeling hair, this detangling brush does an amazing job in looking to detangle your ends. 

The brush is made in Spain in case you were wondering and also, it features an ergonomic design which means that it doesn't have a handle like other brushes. This allows for better control and strength when looking to brush your hair. It's an amazing detangling brush that I have been keeping in my handbag and it's definitely a must have. My hair tends to get knotty and tangled from time to time, so I am so glad that I have discovered Dessata's new MAXI brush.

Can we just take a moment to appreciate the beautiful packaging from Nutrimetics newest beauty and skincare releases? They are simply gorgeous and what better way to treat yourself for this Winter with some beauty and skincare essentials. In this post, I look to review their Precious Rose - Shimmer Body Mist, Nutri-Rich Hand Creme, their Ultra Care Vitamin Oil as well as their Limited Edition Ultimate Eyeshadow palette. I took these products to the test to see what it could do for me and so far I've been impressed with the products brought out by Nutrimetics, especially when it comes to their skincare range. They have worked so well for my skin - and so when I learned that they had just released more new products, I was super thrilled about it. 

For example, their new Vitamin Oil from the Ultra Care range was something I was keen to try out as I've heard the oil is AMAZING for anti-ageing benefits as well as looking to boost your skin with the essential vitamins.

I hope you enjoy the read and if you have any questions, please either comment below or email me through the box on the right, I'd love to hear from you all. 

*****

Let's begin! 



Featuring the NEW gorgeous beauty and skincare range by Nutrimetics. 


Vitamin Oil, Ultra Care, RRP $49 

If you're looking a multi-purpose treatment that looks to deliver intense treatment and hydration for your skin, hair or nails - this is the product for you. I always love a multi-functional product that's full of botanical oils and Vitamins A & E, because it's great to replenish any dry and damaged areas of your skin, hair or nails. This Vitamin Oil does not have a harsh scent, but in fact it smells very natural and botanical which is great. I've been applying the Vitamin Oil onto my nails and skin for when I feel that there are dry bits here and there, and I feel that it has been helping to some degree.


Nutri-Rich Hand Creme (with Apricot Kernel Oil), RRP $28 

This hand creme now comes in a pink limited edition which is my favourite colour so that's a bonus for having this as my everyday hand cream. The Nutri-Rich Hand creme looks to relieve dry and chapped hands instantly, making it perfect for cold and wintry weather conditions. Always make sure to carry a hand cream around in your bag to ensure that your hands are properly moisturised and nourished. The hand creme has a pleasant fragrance that I look forward to every time I reach out for it to apply onto my hands. The hand creme contains Apricot Kernel oil as well as Vitamins C & E, which essentially leaves your hands feeling softer, supple and more smoother. This cream is my favourite pick-me-up product for everyday as it feels very enriching and leaves my hands feeling incredibly nourished. 





Limited Edition Ultimate Eyeshadow Palette - RRP $60 

I am amazed with the full spectrum eye colours being offered for the Ultimate Eyeshadow palette by Nutrimetics. It is a Limited Edition product so depending on availability, you can check out the Nutrimetics official website to see if they still currently stock this product. 

So this palette has been inspired by studio colours which features 8 harmonious colours that will complement any outfit that you wear. There are many looks you can look to create with this eyeshadow palette which range from casual, pretty, smokey eyes or glamourous. There is a mix of matte and metallic textured colours which gives you more options to be creative with this palette. As for pigmentation, within one swatch you can get a decent amount of colour for your eyelids which is perfect. I used an eyelid primer to prime the eyes beforehand to ensure that the eyeshadow stayed on for longer. There is little fallout which is great and I have been utilising this eyeshadow palette to the greatest as all of the shades are all wearable for me. There are no funky looking shades which is ideal because essentially you're going to need an eyeshadow palette for everyday wear. 

Another thing I just wanted to point out about this palette is that each row builds a look for any occasion and so this helpful for new beginners out there! As for the product packaging itself, it's presented in a glitzy covered book style. Simply fold out to reveal the beautiful eyeshadow palette. 


 Limited Edition Precious Rose, Shimmer Body Mist, RRP $40 

This is a lovely spring shimmery body mist which smells of rose. The fragrance features top notes of rose, cassis, pear and ozone, violet, jasmine, freesia, ylang ylang and lily of the valley. The base notes include amber, cedar and musk. Once spritzed all over the body, this will leave your skin feeling moisturised and looking more radiant. Plus, you'll be smelling with a beautiful scent! I love the spray bottle which features prints of roses - making it a really luxe and chic product to look at.
