The Review: Rimmel's 'Santa Rose'

Leave a Comment


After hearing Suzie from Hello October rave about this blush, I had to pick it up. Her makeup always looks flawless and anything she recommends I want to buy. Rimmel's 'Santa Rose' doesn't look much in the pan. It's simple, quite sheer and looks like it would get lost on the cheeks. I don't understand it, but it does do something magical for your complexion.

The Perfect Nude

29 comments



Nude lips are something I have struggled with for awhile now. Much like a contour powder, there seems to be a different "perfect" shade for each complexion and it takes a lot of trial and error to find it. Because of the natural pigmentation of my lips, nudes just didn't seem to work on me. The rosiness would come through, they'd look patchy or they were too light or dark for my complexion. I had never loved or even liked a nude until I tried the Rimmel Moisture Renew lipstick in 'Notting Hill Nude'.

The Review: Rimmel's Professional Eyebrow Pencil

18 comments


I have been a brush and powder kind of person ever since I started filling in my brows, but pencils just seem to adhere to the skin in sparse patches a little better, so I wanted to give them a go. I had heard so many great things about the Rimmel 'Professional Eyebrow Pencil' formulation, and while I loved the application process, there was something a little off about this product.

Giftguide for him

22 comments
As a complete beauty lover, while creating and looking at beauty gift guides might make me salivate, they have been done and we all know what fellow beauty lovers would love to receive this christmas. The real mystery to me, and almost everyone else it seems, is the guys. I have made a collection of things I know my boyfriend would love as he is one of the most difficult people to buy for. His interest lay largely in video games and he always snatches up the new releases for himself, so I'm left scratching my head.

My Handbag Essentials

14 comments

I'm such a handbag fiend that I have my purse-stuffing ways down pat. I have a little map in my head of what goes in what bag, depending on the size, and what bag is for what purpose - night out, day trip, university. With my new Zara mini croc bucket bag, it is a size where I can carry some "just in case" items around but not so many that it gets ridiculous. I would say money, ID and my phone are the real "bag essentials", but these are what I love having with me if I have the extra room to spare.

The 20-Something Crisis

29 comments

I'm sure that any twenty-something who reads this title will instantly understand what it is that I'm talking about and may even feel a wash of relief at the fact that they are not alone. We hear so much about the midlife crisis and the stage of uncertainty between high school and university, so we are prepared for these and feel lost yet still very normal - but why does no one talk about the twenty-something crisis at length? Before I saw a couple of posts like this popping up across the blogging community, I was feeling quite alone with what I was dealing with until I realised that almost everyone else in my age bracket was going through something very similar.

The Zara Mini Croc Bucket Bag

28 comments




I've been popping into every Zara I see and scouring the internet almost daily for any sign of their mini croc bucket bag. Finally, on a trip to give in and buy the mini city bag instead, I spied them tucked away under a clothing rack at the back of the store - success! Because it is summer in Australia they were only released in white and camel, so I had a tough decision to make as my heart was set on black. I settled on the white because let's face it, camel is actually a colour, but in hindsight is a great thing as every bag I own, bar one tote, is black.
