Tarte Blush Mania - Photos and Swatches (Pic Heavy !)

If you follow me on instagram, you will be knowing, I was lucky enough to receive a beautiful delivery of Tarte* Amazonian Clay 12-hour blushes. I haven't tried a lot of Tarte makeup as previously Tarte was not easily available in Australia, but now you can buy them from Sephora Sydney. 

If you are a regular reader of my blog, you will know my love for the Tarte 'Exposed' blush, I have reviewed it before and mentioned it HERE, HERE and HERE

Instead of doing a review again, in today's post I am sharing, photos, swatches, description of different shades and things that I love about the Tarte blushes. Hope you like it !

Mecca Maxima and Lush Skincare Haul !

Hi guys, Haul time ! Haul time ! YAY !! 

I am so excited about this haul, I shopped at Mecca Maxima and Lush and have some goodies to share. I am very happy with my purchase and so excited to try all this.

 Mecca Maxima goodies (From L to R)

Origins Never a Dull Moment Skin - Brightening Face Polisher
I have been wanting to try a new scrub and I love Origins and brightening products, so decided to pick this one. Will have to see how it goes.

REN Rosa Centifolia Foaming Cleanser 
This was recommended by the Mecca SA, based on my current cleanser which is The Body Shop Vitamin E cleanser, she suggested that this is gentle but a foaming cleanser. I am excited to try this.

Origins Dr. Andrew Weil Mega-Bright eye cream 
This was again a recommendation by the SA for hydration and dark circles so am curious to see how it performs. I am yet to find a good eye cream and nothing seems to work for my horrendous dark circles.

REN Glycolactic Radiance Renewal mask 
I picked this because I have heard so much about this mask and had to try it and to be honest my skin can definitely benefit from this good stuff. 

Soap and Glory Rich & Foamous Shower Gel 
I loved the Soap & Glory Breakfast Smoothie scrub and wanted to try one of their body washes, so decided to pick this one. Well, I guess you can sense a pattern, foamy, brightening !

5 Favorite NOT BLACK Eyeliners !

I love colored eyeliners. I think they are the easiest way to add something to your eyes and look pulled together. I previously did a 6 different eyeliner looks post. Today I am sharing my 5 favorite colored eyeliners to wear, this is not focused on the brand as such but on colors.

(L-R) Maybelline Hyperglossy, Savvy by DB Soft Glide, Rimmmel Scandaleyes, Maybelline Colorshow and Revlon Colorstay Skinny

Products I have Repurchased #2

Hi everyone, today's post is about the products I have repurchased. I have done one before, you can check it out HERE. I love doing and reading these posts as they highlight some really awesome products. What more to show you love a product than to repurchase it ?

Almond Hand & Nail Cream (17.95 AUD)
I have spoken a lot about this cream on the blog. This is an absolute treat for your hands. It absorbs quickly which I love in a hand cream and smells gorgeous. This can be a bit expensive if your are used to buying drugstore hand creams but so worth it. 

Maybelline The Falsies Volume Express (19.95AUD)
This was one of the first mascaras that I used that kept my eye lashes curled (without using a curler), as they are always drooping. I love this mascara, it gives my lashes a lift, separation and lots of volume and is affordable. I try to grab it during a sale.

Protane Moroccan Argan Oil (9.99 AUD)
This is Aldi's version of Moroccan oil and I have used a full bottle of this and love it. I haven't used the original expensive Moroccan oil, so cannot compare the two, but this is so damn good that I just don't want to spend four-five times the amount to try the original one as this works pretty good for me. If you like Moroccan oil, definitely give this a go.

Maybelline Makeup Remover (4.95 AUD)
Though my go to HG makeup remover is Garnier 2 in 1 gentle makeup remover, Maybelline makeup remover is equally good stuff. Its awesome at removing waterproof eye makeup and is so affordable. The only thing I don't like is the packaging, the q tip doesn't fit in the opening that dispenses the product and its just inconvenient. Its a small bottle and good for travelling.

Burts Bees Tinted Lip Balm (14.95 AUD)
I have had this in 'Hibiscus' before, its a beautiful peachy neutral shade. I love these lip balms, they are 100% natural and have a hint of color and keep lips moisturised. I have bought this in 'Rose' now and love the color. Highly recommended.

Which products have you repurchased ?
