Why You Should Love Boring Blushes

Hi guys, gals, and non-binary pals!

I’ve been talking about this in a few different posts over the last year in different wishlists, hauls and favourites and I thought that if those posts weren’t convincing you that ‘boring’ blushes are the best blushes, I thought that I should dedicate an entire blog post to the topic to make sure that you are adequately hyped about ‘boring’ blushes. Get on my LEVEL, everyone.

Haul: Mecca Maxima Adelaide Store Opening

Hi guys, gals, and non-binary pals!

Today I wanted to share my experience and haul from the new Mecca Maxima that opened in Adelaide last week! I’d been saying for over a year that Adelaide would be getting a Mecca Maxima at Westfield Marion for some time because I’d seen an ad in the mall showing makeup that you couldn’t buy in the mall. I thought it must have been some kind of sneak peek that everyone seemed to miss when they went to Marion. Lo and behold, Mecca Maxima has now opened in the centre and it is the first Mecca Maxima in South Australia! We have had Mecca Cosmetica in the city for some time now and many Adelaideans have felt that we have been neglected by the Australian beauty industry because we are a very passionate bunch of makeup lovers who were having to travel interstate to see a lot of these brands up close. Hopefully, with the opening of Mecca Maxima in South Australia, we might be seeing a Sephora opening up here in the near future!

Haul: Essence Blossom Dreams Collection

Hi guys, gals and non-binary pals!

It’s been a little bit since I’ve reviewed an Essence collection and to be honest, that’s largely due to there not being a collection that really interested me. A lot of their more recent collections have been quite bland or nothing revolutionary so I’ve not bothered to try anything. However, on a trip to target with a quest to purchase appropriate theatre attire, I stumbled into the cosmetics department and saw a newer Essence collection! I don’t know how long it’s been available because I don’t find myself popping in to Target too often, but it was new enough for there to still be a vast majority of the collection. However, they were all able to be opened and weren’t sealed to avoid contaminated product. I swear Target don’t even know what to do with a cosmetics section, it’s ridiculous how often things are trashed, but that’s a rant for another day. Today I’m sharing the products that I picked up from the Blossom Dreams collection! I hope that you enjoy!

Glambot Haul

Hi guys, gals and non-binary pals!

Today I’m sharing my most recent Glambot haul! This haul was bigger than my first, mostly due to having cash money now. I love Glambot because I get to try products that I never would have bought for full price in Australia. Some stuff works out to be a similar price, but other stuff is pretty heavily discounted, especially when you factor in that there’s no Australia tax haha. Lets have a look at what I picked up this time!

Easiest Cruelty Free Swaps

Hey guys!

As a lot of you may know, I’ve been very interested in being as cruelty free as possible, both diet and makeup/skincare wise. Being on a budget has presented some challenges in finding certain products to replace some non-cruelty free favourites so I wanted to share with you the easiest products that you can swap for cruelty free alternatives. Whether or not being cruelty free is your end goal, it is always important to try to do as little damage as possible so I felt like regardless of your makeup ambitions, this will be a good post for everyone on their makeup discovery journey! I hope that you enjoy!

February Wishlist

Hey guys!

Today I wanted to share everything I’ve been lusting over, with you! These wishlist posts seem to be getting shorter and shorter the more that I’m disinterested with a lot of the gimmicky products being released but I thought I’d still write this month’s post. Not sure if I’ll be writing another, unless something really speaks to me and I feel the need to write about it. I hope that you enjoy the post regardless.

Halloween Week: Matchmaker from Mulan

Hey ghouls!

Today’s look for Halloween Week is the glorious and gorgeous Matchmaker from Disney’s Mulan. I wanted to do a really fun look among the more serious and creepy Halloween looks that I wanted to create this year. I did this look months back so that I’d be able to have all of these Halloween looks up in the last week before handing in my thesis and I’m super glad that I did it early because I’m glad to have been able to bring this look to you! So I hope that you enjoy this look and maybe consider it for this year’s Halloween parties!
