Swatches featuring the Limited Edition Crushed Liquid Lip by Bobbi Brown. 

Top: West Coast Bae 

Bottom: Ambre 



Are you guys excited to try out the latest shades from the Limited Edition Crushed Liquid Lip by Bobbi Brown? 

Bobbi Brown's Limited Edition Crushed Liquid Lips are definitely worth checking out. They are now available in 6 beautiful shades. As you can see from the swatches above, I tried out more of their mocha/chocolate shades including West Coast Bae and Ambre. The shades are so warm and vibrant, they're so perfect for a day look. The liquid lips offer full coverage and leave the lips feeling well moisturised and hydrated. I love how the product offers the moisture-richness from a balm and a sweet sheen for glossy looking lips. Also, they look to give your lips more of a plumped up look and most importantly they feel incredibly comfortable to wear on all day long. 

The Limited Edition Crushed Liquid Lips by Bobbi Brown are now available for a limited time only. Each RRP $40. Selected shades are available via www.bobbibrown.com.au

MY THREE SKINCARE PICKS THAT CAN HELP TO FADE AGEING SUN SPOTS, UNEVEN SKIN TONE & PIGMENTATION


Are you looking for a skincare fix to help curb sun spots, uneven skin tone and pigmentation? 

One particular brand which has recently caught my eye has to be, 'The Ordinary' skincare range which features scientific inspired products and 'Clinical formulations with integrity'. Their simplistic, clean and straight to the point packaging is essentially what interested me to give them a go, as well as reading various reviews online. 

With further research into how to tackle sun spots, uneven skin tone and pigmentation spots, there are numerous brands and products that's suited for everyone out there. So far I've tried out a few products from The Ordinary (which are serum based products) and I can definitely see a greater difference to my skin's complexion. After using these products I would highly stress for you to use a high SPF sunscreen protection. Some of them contain effective and potent acids which can lead to your skin becoming very sensitive over time. 

Here are some picks for you to consider from The Ordinary skincare range: 




This is essentially a brightening serum containing Vitamin C where it does NOT alcohol, oil, silicone, nut and gluten. Plus it's cruelty-free and vegan. This serum is best used for where you have uneven skin tone, dullness and are showing signs of ageing. Simply use about 1-2 drops and massage this onto your skin in the AM and PM. This serum is water based so it's super lightweight and absorbs easily onto the skin. 

Overall since using this serum it has greatly transformed my skin as it looks more glowing, plump and healthier looking now. If your skin is looking a dull, then simply pop on this serum to observe the skin transformation effects.



This is a very lightweight solution where it looks to smooth out any textured skin or dryness, ideal for winter or the cooler season. As this product does contain retinoid, it can make your skin more sensitive to UV exposure so it's essential to use a high SPF sun protection on a daily basis. As it does contain a potent level of retinoid, I do prefer to use this product at night just before I sleep. A few drops does go a long way so there's no need to use so much of this product within your beauty skincare regime. 



If you want to achieve a superficial dermal peeling that's more gentle than other stronger acids, then the Mandelic Acid may be ideal for you. It's perfect for those looking to target uneven skin tone, textured skin as well as skin ageing. As it contains mandelic acid (10%), this allows the product to absorb the skin more slowly and in a gentle way.  I love the fact that it looks to exfoliate any dead skin cells which essentially helps you to achieve a brighter and smoother skin complexion. I found this formula to be very gentle on my skin and I didn't experience any redness or irritations which is ideal. 

Once again always ensure to use a high SPF sun protection when going outdoors to protect your skin from the UV rays.

OOTD: WHAT TO WEAR TO A SPRAY TAN SESSION - 3 STYLISH WAYS TO WEAR TANNING DRESSES


We all know how messy and sticky tanning appointments can leave our skin feeling. Little Tanning Dress offers a stylish range of outfits that are designed to take you to your tanning appointment and back out again to your favourite place, in style of course. What's more is that you can alternatively wear these comfortable tanning dresses out as you do your regular errands, special occasions and much more. (I literally can live in tanning dresses as they are so stretchy and comfortable to wear). 

Here are some tips to prepare you for a spray tan session: 
  • Make sure to wear flip flops or sandals to your appointment. It just makes life easier. 
  • Wear outfits that are dark (either black or dark blue are safe colours to opt for - never white of course).
  • Wear outfits that are comfortable, flowing and don't cling onto your skin. 
  • Make sure to exfoliate your skin a few days or the night before your spray tan appointment. 
  • Moisturise your skin right after your appointment as this will ensure that your tan lasts longer. 

Here are three stylish ways to wear the Little Tanning Dress: 



On my way to the tanning salon, I am wearing the Kimono Robe in Black (RRP $59.95 AUD) in Black by Little Tanning Dress.

This kimono inspired dress is perfect for everyday as it's simple and stylish. 


Prancing around the park in the Brooklyn Tanning Dress (RRP $59.95 AUD) in Navy by Little Tanning Dress. You can wear this dress multiple ways such as a one shouldered dress or tie it up as a halter dress. You can even get away with it at a special event as it has that 'formal' and stylish look to it.

Head to your tanning appointments in style! 


Last but not least you cannot go wrong with a traditional kaftan with a twist to it. Featuring the Courtney Kaftan Tanning Dress (RRP $59.95 AUD) in Navy, it features an elegant V-neckline and a peaked hi-low hemline which adds a little style to your overall outfit.

 I've cinched my dress with a belt to show you that it's super wearable for just about any occasion, and not just tanning appointments.

DISCOVER THE LATEST CLEANSING INNOVATION FROM NEUTROGENA - TRIED & TESTED CLEANSING OILS


For an alternative way of removing your makeup, cleansing oils are your answer. 

Neutrogena recently launched their latest Deep Clean Cleansing Oils, which are ideal for removing stubborn makeup. I love the idea of using cleansing oils on my face because the idea of it all is that it looks to 'melt' off makeup, dirt and oil off your face. The Cleansing Oil contains a blend of oil which act like a magnet and then extracts any oils and impurities on the skin. Your skin is left looking cleansed and refreshed. Simply massage in the cleansing oil onto your face (with makeup) using circular motions. Then just rinse off to reveal a fresh and clean complexion. 

Recently, I tried and tested the Deep Clean Cleansing Oils by Neutrogena and I have to say that they're 100% effective in removing stubborn waterproof mascara and even liquid eyeliner. (It's definitely a life saver especially when you're travelling and constantly on the go). The cleansing oil does not leave you with a greasy residue which is amazing. Furthermore, it doesn't clog the pores which is great for those with oily to combination skin. 

For my next holiday trip, I will be definitely looking to pack a bottle of the Deep Cleansing Oil into my skincare essentials bag. 

Neutrogena Deep Cleansing Oil (Normal), RRP $18.99 Neutrogena Deep Cleansing Oil (Hydrating), RRP $18.99 

The NEW Neutrogena Deep Clean Cleansing Oils are now available at Woolworths and Priceline stores nationally.

ACHIEVE HEALTHIER, SOFTER & SMOOTHER LOOKING SKIN WITH THE AMELIORATE SKINCARE RANGE


The Ameliorate skincare range is designed for those with the skin condition, Keratosis Pilaris. 

The benefits of using their products is that it helps to hydrate dry skin, prevent ingrown hairs and makes normal skin feel absolutely soft and smooth. If you're after healthier looking skin, then definitely look no further. 

Keratosis Pilaris is also known as having 'chicken skin' where it's totally harmless and causes small, hard bumps which can make your skin feel rough. With the right products you can bring your skin on track in hopes of helping it feel and look healthier once again. As we head into the cooler season, we will notice how harsh and dry it can leave our skin feeling. 

Here are some top picks from Ameliorate which can help to relieve dry skin: 


Softening Bath Milk Oil 

Skin is left feeling moisturised and well replenished thanks to the Softening Bath Milk Oil by Ameliorate. It contains soothing colloidal oats which is ideal for creating a milky and  comfortable formula which looks to hydrate and soften the skin. For a lightweight product that absorbs easily onto the skin, this is the perfect bath milk oil to opt for. 


Nourishing Body Wash 

The Nourishing Body Wash by Ameliorate looks to gently cleanse without drying or irritating the skin. It has actually been proven to moisturise the skin for up to 8 hours which is a must for the cooler and dry weather season. 

The body wash comes soap-free, pH balanced and contains the unique LaH6 Skin Hydration Complex which cleanses, softens and moisturises the skin. Furthermore, it feels creamy and lathers really nicely on the skin. 


Transforming Body Lotion 

For an everyday transforming body lotion which feels incredibly lightweight and is designed for Keratosis Pilaris that both exfoliates and moisturises the skin, the Transforming Body Lotion is my favourite. It helps to smooth away any bumps and protects the skin for up 24 hours. Skin feels well moisturised and hydrated.

LOOK TO CONTROL ACNE & MAINTAIN HEALTHY SKIN WITH THE AZCLEAR SKINCARE RANGE


Maintain healthier looking skin and control acne with the Azclear range... 

For those who are looking to reduce and control acne/blemishes on the skin, Azclear Action offers a range of products that looks to solve that problem. It's an affordable acne-prone skincare range that's made available at major pharmacies including Chemist Warehouse in-stores and online. Recently, I revamped my skincare products around to incorporate three new products from their range including their Foaming Wash, Day Moisturiser (with SPF 30+) and Soothing Gel (with Avemide 15 & Vitamin B3). All of these products are designed to help with maintaining your skin and most importantly they're effective and non-comedogenic. 

Their Foaming Wash is a super gentle product and is best used for those with pimples and acne. As it is foam based, it lathers really nicely on the skin and is formulated to reduce acne. The Day Moisturiser (which comes with SPF 30) is a great day to day product as it helps to reduce redness and improves your skin's hydration. 

What I love about this moisturiser is that it's very lightweight and is not too oily on the skin. (It's non-comedogenic too). And last but not least I tried out their Soothing Lotion which is perfect for maintaining the hydration levels on your skin. It reduces any discomfort and irritation on the skin and it doesn't contain any fragrances, colours, etc. It comes in the form of a pump sized bottle which makes it hygienic and easy to use.
