I've never been a massive beauty buff. Only a couple years ago I only ever wore powered foundation and eyeliner. However, things seem to have snowballed since then and I've found that playing with beauty products can be almost as fun as playing with fashion! So I thought, every month or so I would review some products I've been using on Spin Dizzy Fall.
As I said, I'm no beauty blogger but to all you make-up rookies out there, you're not alone on this quest/struggle to get longer lashes and pristine nail beds. We can do it together! I want to hear all your thoughts and feedback along the way. So far I'm using a rating system that goes a bit like this...
'Spin' = Love it & will use again.
'Dizzy' = Unsure or confused.
'Fall' = Oh dear. Downright Fail.
Now! To the details of today's post ...
1 + 2: 'In My Bag' feature for Australis
Products: Bronzing primer, pout paste, bronzer and polish by Australis.
Also included: Missguided Jeans, myleather.com.au Bag, Shoes via Stylemology, She Inside plaid shirt, Zero UV shades, Chloe perfume & DW watch.
Review: Stay tuned for this one.
3: Intensive Body Cream - Rosa Damascena, Acai & Pomegranate by Grown Alchemist
Review: Soft and lovely on the skin.
Rating: Spin! Very luxurious without the huuuge price tag at $29.95
4: Skinperfect Primer by Dermalogica
Review: Honestly, I didn't own a primer before and I was impressed. But then I tried my sister's primer and found that yes, this primer is actually impressive. It's like silk on your skin!
Rating: Spin. It's taken a place in my 'everyday' make-up bag.
5: Lip Care with Honey by Apivita
Review: All winter I've been looking for something to heal my dry lips. I've gone through chapsticks and paw paw ointments but this is the one that's stuck with me.
Review: Spin, again! Loving the honey.
6: Stress Relief treatment oil by Dermalogica
Review: During my exams I was bouncing off the walls and looking for anything 'Stress Relief'. One whiff of this oil and you're half asleep. In a 'I'm extremely relaxed' kind of way not a chloroform kind of way. It smells amazing! However, like with many oils, there seems to be a leak issue so always keep it standing upright.
Rating: Dizzy. Love it but let down by the leak situation. Plus you also need to con someone into give you a massage first but hey, that's not really Dermalogica's fault now is it?
6: Facial Masque by Grown Alchemist
I haven't had a chance to use this one yet but I had to include it because it smells glorious! Very musk. Follow me on twitter to get the review when I use it.
Now nail polish is something I have always loved!
Spin for both these products. The Bloom polish goes on very well with only two coats and keeps it's shine. Obviously I had a bit too much fun with the nail art pen as I had originally planned to go with a straight line design. But I'll definitely be using it again. Simple dots design is next on the list!
