How is it even possible that we are officially halfway through 2014? I feel like we just celebrated Christmas! Here’s what I got up to in June
Out & About
Instead of the usual blurb, I thought I would show you some snaps from June.
Here are a few of my favourite posts from this month:
Rimmel MoistureRenew Lipsticks – These are my new favourite lipsticks, they are so glossy and hydrating.
Her Fashion Box (May) – Her Fashion Box have really picked up their game recently, check out what I thought of the May box.
Boe Beauty EyeProducts – I have been completely obsessed with the Boe Beauty range recently and at $2 a pop, can you blame me?
Benefit They're Real Push-Up Liner - Benefit launched their innovative new Push-Up Liner in June and I was lucky enough to pick one up at the pre-sale.
These are a few of the products I have been loving recently:
1. LUSH The Sacred Truth Fresh Face Mask– The change in weather saw my skin heading into dangerous territory, I was breaking out a bit and also had some nasty dry patches on my nose and chin. The lovely ladies at LUSH recommended the Sacred Truth mask which, although it’s designed as an anti-aging mask, contains antioxidants to brighten and refresh the skin. It’s been working an absolute treat and my skin cleared up in a matter of days.
2. Fuse Gelnamel Kit – I was lucky enough to win a Priceline Facebook competition and received both a Fuse and a Sensationail kit as the prize. I haven’t tried out the Sensationail one yet but I LOVE the Fuse kit. After my disastrous encounter with the Essence Gel Nails Kit, I was a bit reluctant to try gel nails again but the Fuse kit was so easy to use, only requiring one polish with no base or topcoats. The polish dries instantly but I did find that 3 coats were needed to get good coverage for one of the colours. The polished lasted a good week and I was really impressed with both the application system and wear time. The only downside was that a whole nail of polish popped off and disappeared after about 3 days but I think that was my fault for not buffing properly before applying.
3. Anatomicals Be Good With Your Hands in Bed Night Time Hand Cream – I always suffer from really dry hands in winter and it bums me out! Anatomicals launched (well really re-launched) in Australia this year and I was so glad to see them because their products are amazing. Be Good With Your Hands is a really thick, rich hand cream made with avocado and it smells delish, very fresh and fruity. Although it’s a night time hand cream, I’ve been using it whenever I get a chance and my hands have been feeling much better.
4. Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette– I picked this up at Mecca Maxima when it launched just over a month ago and although the price tag made me gasp, I really love this palette. It contains three Ambient Lighting Powders: Dim Light, Incandescent Light (exclusive to the palette) and Radiant Light. Dim Light is a more neutral powder designed to blur imperfections, Incandescent Light is a pearly kind of powder that gives a beautiful glow and Radiant Light is a warmer, more bronze-toned powder. I have been loving these for winter and my skin is looking a bit dull and these are the perfect way to add depth, warmth and glow to the complexion.
June was a pretty busy month for me, I feel a little like a hamster on a wheel at the moment! I am at camp right now and trying to settling back into the FIFO routine again. It’s a bit of a struggle being away from home for so long but I try to find the positives and think of all the things I have planned for my days off, including a trip to Melbourne!!. I’m also looking forward to starting my Invisalign treatment later this month and I will try and post about that too as there was some interest on Facebook about it. That’s all for June, please keep in touch, I love reading all your lovely comments and it’s especially important for me now that I’m in the field to keep a firm grasp on my links to home.
Here’s to a great July!
