FELICIA RECOMMENDS

I constantly come across things in my daily life that I love to tell all my friends, family and followers about, and I thought it would be nice to have these recommendations communicated in regular blog posts since most of them are shown through my Instastories or instant messengers, which are fleeting moments!

Brand Spotlight: Girlactik Cosmetics

Welcome back beauties!

Girlactik has always been one of those US brands I’ve been dying to try, yet are really hard to come by in Australia. Well, things are about to get a whole lot of easier. Introducing one of the latest new cosmetics retailers to hit Aussie shores, The Beauty Drawers.

90’s Inspired Autumn Look

Welcome back beauties!

Into Autumn and with Winter approaching, I’ve really been feeling khaki tones and metallic warm lips. It seems the focus is on warm reds and berries this season, but I’m taking inspiration from the decades of the 90’s in these cooler months with basic browns and khakis, so I wanted to show you all an Autumn/Winter themed look that I created with some products available from Adore Beauty.

Parabens in Cosmetics: A miscarriage of Justice?

Um.. sorry about the dramatic title, that’s just the forensic scientist in me.

THE EYELASH LIFT: DITCH YOUR EYELASH CURLERS

I’ve always felt like I’ve had good long lashes, but as they grow downwards I’ve always had to rely on using eyelash curlers to lift up my lashes to new heights and make my eyes pop. However, I don’t particularly enjoy using them, and we’ve all seen the horror stories floating around the internet of people ripping out their eyelashes or cutting their lashes with their eyelash curlers.

As an alternative, eyelash lifts have always excited and intrigued me, and I was finally given the chance to experience it for myself. In this post, I’ll go over my experiences with getting an eyelash lift treatment from Exotic Beauty by Liz here in Adelaide, going over what’s involved and what my results were!

Let’s Talk Trash: Product Empties

Welcome back beauties!

This post is the next long-awaited instalment of my product empties series, where I chat about products I’ve used up and give a short verdict for if I’ll repurchase or not. I’ve chosen to do these posts quarterly, because I am naturally horrendous at committing to emptying products I’ve opened and monthly posts wouldn’t be interesting with one or two empties…
