Mario Badescu Haul

30 Jan

I saw on Facebook that my friend Yolanda (from Shopping Intervention) had been to Kit Cosmetics and picked up a Mario Badescu product, and she also told me that our other friend Dana (from Blushfully) was a huge fan of the stuff. I had been wanting to try this line of skincare for ages, and when the girls said that the prices had recently been reduced thanks to the strong Aussie dollar, I was hell bent on getting my hands on some MB. So off I headed on Saturday to Kit Cosmetics to get me some goodies!! So here is what I got… 3 products and a small surprise gift with purchase which were cute sample size products.

I had asked Yolanda and Dana what they recommended and they both agreed that the Drying Lotion was a must and Dana loved the Enzyme Cleansing Gel, so I got both these and the Buffering Lotion which the sales assistant said is really good at getting rid of those pesky little ‘under-the-skin-bumps’ that aren’t quite at the surface, which immediately grabbed my attention. She also said it would help get rid of those blind hormonal pimples under the surface… I hate those! So far, I have used the cleansing gel and the buffering lotion and absolutely LOVE them. The cleanser is low foaming and it makes your skin feel clean without the tight feeling. I used the buffering lotion on some small bumps on my cheek area (most likely caused by rubbing sunglasses) and it almost cleared them up overnight, the area was smoother and the bumps reduced. Amazing.

The samples I got were a Super+ Eye Cream sample, a Kit Cosmetics Bronzing Lotion, a sample size of the Mario Badescu cleanser I bought, and an Origins anti-ageing moisturiser.

I’m so glad that I bought these Mario Badescu goodies, I have a feeling I should stock up… as some of these may become permanent fixtures in my skincare routine. The prices for Mario Badescu at Kit Cosmetics are so reasonable now too, the Enzyme Cleansing gel cost me $18.95 and the Buffering Lotion and Drying Lotion are both $26.95.

I popped into Colette Accessories as well and ended up finding this cute neon pink necklace for a bargain price of $7.95! I just had to grab it… and I thought it would look cool underneath the collar of a black sheer top I own. I thought right…

Winner of the Makeup Box Competition

17 Jan

Wowzas!!!! What an exceptional response to the Makeup Box competition. Thank you so much to everyone who took the time and effort to enter this competition… I spent last night checking all the entries and copying them into an excel spreadsheet so that I could randomly select a winner. It took me hours!!! All up there were over a hundred entrants and the entries (you could get up to 8 entries for completing all steps) tallied up to 551. I used random.org to select a winner randomly. I was overwhelmed by everyone’s great New Year resolutions and I sincerely hope that you all achieve them in 2012. If I could, I would give each and every one of you a makeup box set (but that’s not up to me is it), however there is only one lucky winner… the excitement is killing me, so let’s reveal it shall we?… … …

The Hautees – 2012 People’s Choice Awards

12 Jan

Ahhh, nothing better than a good ol’ red carpet perve. Feast your eyes on my favourite picks from the 2012 People’s Choice Awards Red Carpet… or as I say the ‘hautest of the haute’.

Nina Dobrev from The Vampire Diaries in Elie Saab. Wow. No Words! This gal nails the red carpet look EVERY.YEAR. Who would-a thunk that this green colour would look so striking on Nina. And that hair… so shiny, so luscious, so long. I want this chick’s skin… yes like Silence of the Lambs style. Bahaha. So GREEN with envy…*wink wink*

Jennifer Morrison in Oscar De La Renta. I love this look – so elegant. I’m a huge fan of the bun, and that lipstick colour compliments the outfit so well. She looks radiant. LOVE.

I’m sorry but Kristen Bell just makes it to my list every time, mainly because she always gets it right and more so because I just love her SO DARN MUCH! Any fellow Veronica Mars fans out there? Here she wears Valentino. Doesn’t she just look amazing in red?

Miley Cyrus donned a delightful David Koma dress. Everything is ringing my bell in this image… the hair, the skin, the makeup, the dress, the shoes. Kudos to Miley for this stunningly simple but amazing red carpet look.

What do you think lovelies? Do you agree that these girls are looking hawt?! Who were your favourites?
