Dry Skin?

Hello readers! 

Another post as promised, but firstly I'd love to wish you all celebrating Easter, a very happy Easter Holiday!! 
Eat a lot of chocolate! 

Today's topic is all based on dry skin! 
If you struggle with dry skin, no problem! read on and find out (: 

Step 1: 
- Mix Olive Oil with a bit of Sea Salt. 

Step 2: 
- Mix them together and make a scrub and massage on your skin. 

Step 3
- Wash it right after with luke warm water then splash a dash of cold water to seal your pores. 

The sea salt is going to gently clean our your pores and not harm your skin because of the tiny particles which helps. 

This is a small post however I hope you've enjoyed 
Don't forget to check back in every Monday and Friday!! New post every twice a week (:
P.s// Do this at your own risk, I am not a dermatologist nor a doctor. 

Happy Easter
Enjoy your holiday!!

Revlon; Lip Butters Review.

Hello, to all you beautiful readers out there! 

As promised, 2 post once a week! Ever wondered whether there is such a lip product that hydrates, gives color and also has amazing color range? Well, there is! &That's the Revlon Lip butter! 

Stay with me &I'll bring you through everything you need to know from price, to color range and to the quality! 
I recently discovered the Revlon Lip Butter through Youtube Guru's and I decided to give it a go, now the first color that I picked up was 2 months ago. 

The first color that I've picked up was 015; Tutti Frutti. The only reason why I picked it up and decided to give it a go is because its orange. Now I am a huge fan of orange/corals when it comes to lipstick colors, half of my lipstick collection are probably corals/orange or even peachy orange &again orange

I'll describe each color individually; 

Tutti Frutti: This is an exceptional orange for a more natural daily look. If you naturally have rosy lip color (like I do) then this would show a little more sheer however on the other hand, if you have super pale lips as if you have no blood in you, then this is going to show a massive difference.
The formula is amazing, super creamy and hydrating on the lips (LIKE BUTTER) 
Color last all day long. 
Pigmentation is amazing, it's not super sheer nor super glittery. Just in between. 

Sweet Tart: This is a super barbie pink. I don't normally go to the wild side where I would be able to wear fuschia or a neon pink color like MAC Saint Germain because I naturally have pale skin. 
Thought I'd give this a go because i was feeling oh-so-adventurous. 
&again the color last all day long. 
Pigmentation is super amazing and it's very moisturizing. 

As shown; From left to Right. 
Sweet Tart- Tutti Fruitti. 

I love the packaging as it is easy to tell which color is which because of the packaging and the cap color. 
The color range is amazing, i have never seen such an amazing color range ever. You can get the nudest of the nude color in that range or go for a super bold color! I believe they're having 4 more colors that are releasing here in Australia which I am so excited to see. 

The price isn't that pricey for such amazing product but it is however a tad bit steep for drug stores. 
I picked up Tutti Fruitti in Singapore Airport for about S$7 I believe? 
and the other one was about AUD$12 somewhat there. 

Definitely amazing product, if you have not tried and you're wanting to buy a lipstick but afraid it won't suit you, I'd suggest these lip butters! Absolutely cult product. 

I hope you all are having an amazing day!

Why not to wear makeup during gym?

Hello my lovelies! 

I know I promised that I'd put up a new blog post this friday and it is now sunday, tsk tsk naughty me. 
Well, better late than never! 

One of the things I realized the most when I am at the gym trying to work out and getting fit/toned, I realized that a lot of women at the gym have a full face of makeup. 
There are some tips on why you should avoid using makeup at the gym! 

Tip 1: 
Blocks your pores; 
When you sweat, your pores will get clogged up with sweat and makeup therefore, causing you to break out. 

Tip 2: 
Runny makeup. 
When you're sweating and you're trying as much as possible not to wipe your makeup off, your sweat will drip on your face and also cause your makeup to run. (I have seen this happened) 

Those 2 tips are the most important in why you shouldn't wear makeup to the gym, Wearing makeup to the gym can make you look pretty but trust me, would you rather have beautiful and nice skin after the gym naturally or pile on a whole junk of makeup then in the end having pimples all over? 

Hope this has helped you &
See you tomorrow for a new post!! 
ps. Pictures are not mine unless stated.

Freeman Cucumber Mask.

Hello my Lovelies! 

Recently I went a little shopping for beauty products at PriceLine here in Brisbane, at Queen Street. If you follow me on any social media you would definitely know. So follow up! 

This post will be all about the Freeman Cucumber Mask, because it was one of the thing that I wanted to pick up when I went shopping for my little beauty products. 
As much as I love my other facial mask, I picked this one up because it was a peel off * I've lived in a cave my entire life*. 

The mask cost about AUD$9.99, I wouldn't really say it is pricey for the amount and uses that I will get out of it, so the price was reasonable though it would be better if it was a little cheaper. 
The formula is very sticky, like glue so this is a little down side for the packaging. When you open the bottle, some product will slip out and that it would make the cap area sticky. Instead of having a squeeze out, I would say it's better if you have a pump to go with it, to avoid any spillage. 

I apply the mask for about 10 minutes and then peel it off, by far the most interesting thing I have done all day. Once i peel the mask off, my skin felt so smooth and bright. This mask is a definite yes, aside from the very annoying packaging. 

This is a very short post, because it is quite self explanatory, so if you have any questions, do leave them in the comment section below and I will reply to them! 

Hope you all are having an amazing weekends!

Kit Cosmetic; Lip Glaze review.

Hi Beauties! 

Recently, I went shopping here in Brisbane down at the city (Queen Street) and passed by Myer. I was on the hunt for a moisturizing face mask as the weather was getting a little dry and my skin needed a major face mask. I stopped by Myer centre and went over to the origins counter hoping that they'd have some products that were suitable for my skin, and of course they did. 

However, this blog post isn't about "why I got a new face mask", this blog post is about a lip glaze that I recently discovered and fell head over heels for it. 
As much as I love my lipsticks, I couldn't say the same for my lip glosses. I am not a major fan of lip glosses that would be sticky and too thick. 
I bought my face mask and was given a lip glaze from Kit Cosmetic as one of their february valentine's day promotion, did not like the color at first but decided to give it a go. 
Absolutely love it. 

The packaging is super adorable and it is an absolute winner, a winner for your handbag!

The applicator however did not really make me like this product a 100% even though everything about it was just amazing. The applicator is a doefoot applicator and the reason why I don't like this type of applicator is because it's difficult to elongate around the corner of the mouth. I still prefer the teardrop applicator. 

The color pay off is amazing and even though the color seems a bit darker or quite scary at first, it came out light on the lips (depending on your natural lip color before applying a lipstick). 
This is not sticky or not thick on the lips, it felt as if it's just a little glaze on the lips. There are no traces of glitter or sparkles in the lip gloss, which is a major plus size for me. 

Money wise, I couldn't really tell because this was given to me as a free gift by the sales girl as a valentine's promotion but If I am not mistaken, I believe it's about AUD$29? 
I have provided their website link below for you all to check out more of their products. 

Hope this was useful to you all!
