Welcome to my next instalment in my ‘Brand Spotlight’ series!
I’m all for finding genuine Australian companies who are cruelty-free, good quality and better yet, affordable and accessible to the everyday consumer. One brand who has really gotten my support recently is Natural Glamour. They provide diversity in coverage, skin tone and levels of SPF in their products to cover all women whilst protecting them from harsh UV rays. They do this, so that we can protect our skin more effectively whilst radiating our natural, sun-kissed beauty, something that Australian women are very well known for!
Generally, I’m pretty horrible with committing to finishing products I’ve opened, because I get too excited about things I buy or receive that I just want to open up and try everything I own! However recently, I’ve really challenged myself to completely use up products I have opened, and to only open another product when I need to. Of course, this isn’t true for EVERYTHING. It’s pretty much impossible to only use up one product in category, and being a beauty blogger I do receive quite a few products for editorial consideration so I have a responsibility to open and use up products to create my content – but I’m trying to as best I can. It’s what people called ‘shopping your stash’ or ‘shopping your beauty cupboard’. It’s money saving – because you don’t throw out products that go old because you don’t use them up – and it’s also a more economical way to live.
Innoxa is one of my favourite Australian affordable and cruelty-free cosmetic brands, and I totally feel like they aren’t spoken about enough. I fell in love with them back when I tried their 5-in-1 BB cream foundation, honestly that stuff is amazing. So I was absolutely over the moon to receive a few of their new releases, including their new VoluLip volume lip crayons which includes 6 shades that are perfect for Spring and Summer.
This blog post was incredibly exciting to explore and write, as I was reviewing one of America’s most loved drugstore brands, Milani Cosmetics. Milani Cosmetics is definitely hard to come by in Australia, and while some online cosmetics boutiques do stock some Milani there is a very limited product and shade range and stock levels are always low.
Well… it’s that time again! Many of you have been following me on my brow tattoo journey and have been patiently waiting for my update on my brows. I’ve FINALLY written up my well overdue post, and I’m so excited to show you all the final result! I got my brows feather tattooed from the girls at Exotic Beauty and Brows, and if you read my first installment of my brow tattoo journey, you would be aware that I was going to go back for my touch up session and that I was going to report the final result to you all. If you haven’t read it, you can catch up on it here.
Hey guys, I’m back!! If you’ve been following me you would know that I’ve pretty much disappeared off the face of the Earth for the last 5 weeks, but I promise you I am back and there are some good reasons why I’ve been away.
