Urban Decay Naked Smoky


A couple of months ago Australia finally got Urban Decay’s Naked Smoky eyeshadow palette. Since I bought Naked 3 earlier in the year I had been interested in getting another but found it hard to choose between 1 and 2. Then the Smoky came out. Having what I think to be the combination of the best colours from the first two palettes it was an instant buy for me! If you’re looking to do cool, warm, smokey and natural looks then this palette could be for you! It seriously does it all…

Over a year after opening their Sydney store, and after opening a random second Sydney store, Sephora Australia finally has a website.

Review: Colour Pop Fall 90s Collection


I’ve been interested in Colour Pop for a little while now but was always overwhelmed with how many choices there are. Recently they brought out their Fall collection which was inspired by the 90s so finally I knew what kind of shades I’d love to buy! I splurged on two eyeshadows, two lipsticks and a blush. Though the prices are really cheap, the US dollar is still crushing ours so everything’s basically doubled. Oh well! Let’s get on with the items…

Review: Marie Claire The Parcel Beauty Box


If you’ve read my past Australian beauty subscription box reviews you will know that I haven’t been too impressed with them. I’d heard so many great things about the seasonal Marie Claire The Parcel though and when I saw they had a 20th anniversary edition coming out I thought I’d give it try! This box comes out 4 times a year to coincide with seasonal changes. Let’s see what arrived in the Spring/20th edition!
