REVIEW: Trefiel Lace Sheet Hydromasks

I love sheet masks. Maybe it's the way they can make your skin glow, balance your complexion, exfoliate like a boss or just make you look like a friendly monster, I can't get enough of them.

For the newbies (welcome to this wonderful world!), a sheet mask is essentially a piece of cloth in the shape of a face that is enriched with skincare, usually a hard core serum or exfoliant. You leave them on your face for anywhere between 5 and 30 minutes depending on the mask type, before removing and patting in the residue into your skin for a long lasting treatment. 

I especially love sheet masks from Japan and Korea because they are known for AMAZING skincare, but the latest one to hit my radar is this stunning lace creation from Trefiel.

This crazy cool masquerade style mask comes in two sections - for the top and bottom halves of the face - so you can really customise your skincare routine. Plus, these babies are Aussie, and I love trying locally-made products!

REVIEW: Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick in 'Scream Queen' & #MECCAxSMASHBOX

You know that thing you never knew you wanted until you discovered it exists? A lipstick with your name engraved on it? Yeah, for me that was one of them.

Yes, I know you can just get this done at your local key cutter, but everything is just more fun at Mecca, right? And Mecca Maxima in Melbourne Central and Chadstone both had one day only in store events where with any purchase of the new re-released Smashbox Be Legendary Lipsticks, you could have your name engraved on it for free. Um, YES PLEASE.

REVIEW: Australis Take Me On Tour Contour & Highlight Kit

Lovers of the original Australis Contour and Highlight Kit - its younger sister is in town and she is arguably the cuter of the siblings! Just look at that pretty little thing!

The Take Me On Tour three-pan palette is a palm-sized, travel friendly version of the ACOnTour Kit, featuring what I think are actually the best shades from the first release; the famous 'banana' powder, a warm-toned highlight and a muted contour shade.

Want to get to know this cutie? Read on!

OOTN: A Cosy Night In

I'm one of those girls who comes home and just tears their bra off. 

Gutter, minds, out please! Ladies, I'm sure you can relate - having a tight bra on all day is pretty exhausting, so super comfy soft bralettes are all kinds of awesome.

And since getting my own place, nothing really quite beats lounging around in whatever you feel like wearing! A bralette and a sweatshirt? ONLY a bralette and a sweatshirt? Girl, you do you!

REVIEW: TooFaced #TFNoFilter Selfie Powders Palette

Spending forever trying to get that perfect selfie? 56904 photos later and still no new profile pic? Beauty, I can RELATE. 

While the TooFaced #TFNOFilter Selfie Powders Palette doesn't guarantee a killer DP, it really does do a pretty rad job of adjusting the lighting of your makeup. Say what?

If you're after a new setting powder that doubles as a complexion smoother, this might just rock your makeup bag.

REVIEW: Clarins Cleansing Milk with Gentian

There's nothing that makes me as mad as when I look into the mirror after a day at work and I spot dry patches on my cheeks (gross, I know!) cracking through my makeup. Like, can you not?!

Flaky, patchy skin isn't cute and if I could have it my way, I'd have pearl smooth skin all the time. But the skincare gods decided they would give me combination skin and leave me forever trying to work out the right cleansing routine for my complexion. THANKS.

Enter Cleansing Milk. Somewhere between a cream cleanser and a moisturiser, cleansing milks are gentle enough to keep your skin plushly soft, while still removing makeup and oil. Oily T-zone and dry cheeked beauties, rejoice!
