Ellis Brooklyn

We have a new kid on the fragrance block in Australia thanks to Mecca Cosmetica Trove. That kid is Ellis Brooklyn, founded by NY Times beauty columnist Bee Shapiro (so you know it’s gonna be good). The paraben and phthalate free range is all about being luxe while sustainable. The range consists of fragrances, body milks and candles. The two products I picked up were the Myth fragrance and body milk…

Zoe Foster Blake x Skin and Threads Collaboration

When Zoe Foster Blake announced she would be collaborating with Skin and Threads to release her own clothing designs I was jumping out of my ‘skin’. Zoe is nothing short of quirky and fun and her clothes truly reflect this. From a jumper with an Iced VoVo (or Iced ZoZo, should we say) on the front to a t-shirt with the word ‘chips’ written in glitter, the clothes are friggen magical in my opinion.

I picked up the Chips tee and Orange Segment Shirt because how could I not? I have received so many compliments on both items and have had a tonne of people ask where I got them from, so now the secret is out – Skin and Threads, people.

In case you were wondering what they looked like on, above is me wearing the Chips T-Shirt with some loose pants and my trusty leather jacket casually flung over my shoulders. You know, as you do.

Have you picked up any of the ZFB x Skin and Threads items?

Natural Skincare That Won’t Break The Bank – Sukin Skincare Collaboration

I often ramble on about the importance of maintaining a good skincare routine, but sometimes this is easier said than done. Let’s face it – products can be expensive but there are definitely some brands out there that deliver decent skincare without the price tag! Since I love natural skincare and products, I teamed up with Sukin* to share my top five products from the range.

Sukin is an Australian brand that is focused on creating natural skincare that is both cost effective and environmentally friendly. If you are someone seeking products without parabens, sulfates, fillers, other chemicals and that are vegan and cruelty free then Sukin will probably be up your alley.

Omorovicza Deep Cleansing Mask Review

Omorovicza is a beautiful skincare range from Budapest, inspired by the Hungarian thermal waters and baths. Hungarian water is rich in minerals and has amazing healing benefits for the skin, which is what inspired founders Stephen and Margaret to create the range. I was lucky enough to meet Stephen last year and he is seriously charming; think old Hollywood movie star vibes. Stephen pronounced Omorovicza ‘om-oro-vee-za’, so that’s just how I pronounce it. Anyway, minerals can be a little hard for the skin to properly absorb, so Omorovicza patented a delivery system called Hydro Mineral Transference. Basically, Hydro Mineral Transference ensures the minerals from the Hungarian waters are penetrated deeply into the skin. Although I adore all Omorovicza products, the Deep Cleansing Mask is a standout for me.

Go-To Skincare Review 2.0

I made my first Go-To Skincare purchase back in 2014 and wrote my first blog post about the brand early 2015. Ahh, memories. Since then, Go-To Skincare has been a brand that I repurchase time and time again. Why? Because it is so bloody good and works. I’ve had my fair share of skin problems in my time like perrioral dermatitis and serious cystic acne (ugh) and what I like about Go-To is that it doesn’t piss off my temperamental skin. Recently I have had a lot of people ask me about my thoughts on Go-To and while it’s obvious I love the brand, I thought I’d give another rundown on the prods.

Go-To Skincare was created by my absolute idol. The one and only Zoe Foster Blake. What’s not to love about Zoe? She is witty, sharp as a tack, has mad writing skills and has so much beauty knowledge to share with the world thanks to being a former beauty editor. She also gives pretty awesome dating advice (if you haven’t read Textbook Romance then I strongly recommend you do). Zoe is pretty much who I want to be in life, especially on the career front as an aspiring Beauty Journalist.

I have owned every Go-To product at some point, however I was so lucky to have received a new parcel from the Go-To team recently since they know how much I adore the brand and how many times I’ve repurchased everything. This isn’t a sponsored post – I just like to bang on about these products…

Kim Kardashian West Beauty Creme Liquid Lipstick Review

Why is it that as soon as a Kardashian plants their name on makeup it instantly sells out? For this reason I was unable to get my hands on Kim’s lipstick collab with her sister Kylie Jenner for quite some time. My personal feelings towards the Kardashians are neutral; I don’t love them but I don’t hate them. They’ve never done anything wrong to me so I’m definitely not one to go around trashing them. I do own a fair few items from Kylie Cosmetics and I truly liked them so I was eager to get my hands on Kim’s products. One morning a few weeks ago I woke up at the crack of dawn to order both the lipsticks and contour kit from KKW Beauty (stay tuned for my upcoming contour kit review!) So, just how did these liquid lipsticks stack up?
