WICKED Topshop Lips

Sunday, 23 November 2014


I had a little spend at Priceline recently and ended up being all Santuacy Spa products!

Brightening Facial - Radiance Exfoliator
My face looked noticeably different after just one use! It appeared more youthful and radiant - like the name suggest. My skin felt smooth & dead skin cell clear (yum) without feeling like it had been stripped of its oils. After removing all dry skin and excess dirt, my skin felt plump and hydrated.  One of my favourite exfoliates I have found so far!

Salt Scrub & 4 Day Moisture Oil Scrub 
These scrubs are very similar. The only main difference is, the salt scrub is watery and granule-y and the oil scrub has a thick cream texture. Even though the salt scrub dosnt have 'oil' in the title like the other, it is just as oily and moisturising. I cant really decide which one I prefer, but I think it may be the salt scrub because I find the salt exfoliates a little better and it also looks prettier in the jar! Both of these left my legs feeling smooth and dry skin free. No need to moisture after. You could say its a 2 in 1 product and they would be great before fake tanning.

I'm quite happy with my purchases and I will be deffiently trying some more products from Sanctuary. Let me know if you have tried any other great products from there range!

The Gleesome Threesome

1. YSL Babydoll Kiss & Blush - 1
These have been out for a while and I have been pondering whether to buy or not. I'm very careful when it comes to splurging on makeup, especially all on one item. At $58 a piece you would want it to be amazing. I finally took the plunge, closed my eyes & handed over my card. I am so happy I bought this, Its amazeballs! The consistency is very creamy, which makes it easy to blend onto the cheeks and the lips. The colour is very rich & long lasting. An also a 2 in 1 product!

2. Rimmel Glam Eyes -  Smokey Purple
If you have seen one of my previous posts you'll know I purchased the Glam Eyes Quad in Smokey Brun - which I absolutely love. This provoked me to try more colours from the range, so I decided on these purple hues. Once again I'm soo happy with this purchase. The colours are pigmented and blend beautifully on the eye. These purples are very wearable - great for beginners or others diving into different eyeshadow colours.

3.Bare Minerals Ready Eye Shadow - The Top Shelf
I saw this palette online and I was curious to try. Bare minerals aren't too pricey at $27, so I thought I would take another makeup gamble. At first I was a little disappointed - barely anything showed up on my eyelid. But the second time I tried it, I was in a rush, so I smooshed my brush in quite harshly, and that is when the true colour came out. Intense golden tones -  perfect for a 'bronze goddess' look.

In conclusion, the gleesome threesome!

Have you tried any of these products, what are your thoughts?!

YSL Rouge Volupte Shine - Face of the Day

'I made an effort today' look but I really just slapped on some cream eyeshadow and ran a glossy lipstick onto my lips. I have had both of these products for a long time and I'm only just starting to realize how much I love them. The Mac paint pot in groundwork is a beautiful natural brown colour and its easy to blend out - no harsh edges. The YSL Volupte lipstick in 12 is one of the shine formulas, which is something I normally don't go for. I have been finding it so easy to slap on, while still achieving an intense colour.

EL Double Wear Light - 01 Light
Mac Pro Longwear Concealer - NC15
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette
EL Sumptous Infinite Mascara
Nars Pro Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base

Mac Paint Pot - Groundwork
Mac Eye shadows - Wedge & Carbon
Mac Eye shadows (Brows) - Charcoal Brown
Sunday Riley Blush - Honest
YSL Rouge Volupte Shine - 12

JERGENS Daily Moisture

I have always heard American Youtubers raving about Jergens moisturisers and I hoped one day I would go to America and stock up on them! But I dont have to anymore because there now at Priceline! I was so suprised when I saw them, I ended up buying four Jergens products. (Blog posts about the others will be coming soon!) 

Due to owning a truckload of moisturizers already I chose the smaller bottle which at the time was on promotion for only AU$4.79 down from AU$5.99. I am really loving everything about this moisturizer. Its a light lotion consistency and soaks into the skin within a few minutes - no stickiness. My skin feels soft, hydrated and even has a slight glow to it. To top it all off it has a beautiful fragrance to it, which doesn't irritate my skin!

Yay for Jergens!

As you may know from one of my past posts I am in love with this Rimmel Glam Eyes quad - it looks amazing, doesn't it?! It contains a gorgeous combination of colours and yes, I managed to smoosh all 4 shades on my eye lid. I finished the look off with the darkest lipstick I own to give it a vampy winteresque look.

THE BODY SHOP Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter

I have been wanting to try out a cleansing balm for a long time and I was initially going to buy the Clinique Cleansing Balm, because I had heard lots of good things about it. But instead I picked up The Body Shop, Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter (can I eat it?) I saw a fellow blogger talk about it.. (I went through all the blogs I follow and I cannot find who blogged about it. Please comment below if you remember! - I bought it because of you! ;D ) The Body Shop one was less then half the price at AU$21.95 for 90g, compared the Clinique one for AU$55 at 120g.

I have tried this a few times & I must say I'm very impressed! You only need a small amount to melt off a full face of makeup. It barely leaves any residue after and your skin doesn't feel stripped of its oils. This would be great for travel, even though it looks bulky, its extremely light and the container is thin.

On the other hand, when I went into The Body Shop to purchase this, the lady who served me suggested I try the Cleansing Oil from this range, because in her opinion she thought it did an even better job then the butter! So, after this butter I told her Ill be back to try that as well. :)

Have you tried out any cleansing balms/butters?
