NEW: YSL Tatouage Couture 'The Metallics'*

This has been a long time coming and my soul has been waiting for the ultimate metallic formula. Contrary to common belief, metallic lip is still in and I am sure not over the phase. That extra reflective, metallic finish is always welcomed on the lips to bring dimension and exercise the limitations of what a lipstick can do to your look. YSL makes one of the best formulated lipsticks in the world and holds one of my holy grail formulas of all time - the Tatouage Couture Collection! This blog post is going to reveal to you my thoughts on whether YSL did justice to the Metallic Lip craze and explore the its contents in depth.

Review: COSRX Two in One Poreless Power Liquid*

When it comes to picking out my favourite Korean skincare products, COSRX are the juicy cherries on top of my skincare collection. They honestly know how to produce the best products that work efficiently and effective so that you get more bang for your buck! To be exact, it saved me more than $400! Like the BHA Blackhead Power Liquid, the Aloe Soothing Sun Cream or the Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser, the NEW COSRX  Two in One Poreless Power Liquid is another addition to my skincare routine that I can call an absolute holy grail! It has just recently reached the borders of Australia and it comes in with a mighty punch. It was launched in Asia a couple of months ago and it was sold out in just under a few hours. Nothing sparks my curiosity more than hype and so I took it on myself to test the limits of this serum!

And so, in this blog post, I'm going to show you guys how I edit and style my pictures, using lightroom as well as show you FREE alternatives that work just as well.

Review: It Cosmetics Bye Bye Concealer*

Want to effectively cover and yet treat your pimples and blemishes with one versatile product? The It Cosmetics Bye Bye Breakout Concealer is a one of a kind concealer that is the answer to covering up every single pimple and blemish, yet also be good for them! How could this be? Concealing a pimple or a blemish could be one of the trickiest thing to get right. Not only do you have have high coverage that will neutralise the redness and discolouration of the blemish, but you have to also think about whether covering it up would irritate the skin. There's so many different textured blemishes that appear on our skin that it's almost impossible to find the perfect concealer to suit them all. But I have the answer for you! Read more on how the It Cosmetics Bye Bye Breakout Concealer could do your pimples justice!

Review: COSRX Aloe Soothing Sun Cream SPF 50+ *

Sunscreen is one of the least glamorous products on the market that is often forgotten or dismissed and is not prioritised. This is especially the case for people under the ages of 21. For those who dwell under the sun (which is all of us), sunscreen is the one barrier for our skin that saves us the most from ageing, wrinkles, dark spots and dryness. But we don't use it because we're afraid it would disturb our makeup or just see the point. Well, I am here to recommend the COSRX Aloe Soothing Sun Cream that you can use with your makeup! Find out how and why.

In this post, I'm going to compare the top three most popular and best selling super dense brushes on the Australian beauty market. Here, I'm putting Shu Uemura, Inika Organics & Artis Brushes head to head to see which brush performs the best. Often when you see dense brushes like these, they aren't as appealing as your traditional makeup brush nor it is seen as innovative or modern as your everyday makeup sponge. But mind you, super dense brushes are the fastest, easiest and most efficient way to apply your base, in particular foundation products. Find out which brush is best for you!

Review: Dear Klairs Vitamin E Mask*

One of the main things I have been working on is using products that specifically brighten my complexion. I wanted products that would not only hydrated and bring radiance to my skin, but also help with brightening my dark sun spots that have resided on my skin like unwanted friend sleeping on your face for years.

Review: Dear Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin Drop*

For years, I have been struggling with dark spots, sun damage and texture on my skin. And I couldn't use just any product.

The product I have been using for the last 3-4 weeks to help with my textured skin and dark spots is the "Dear Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin Drops". And again, 'Let's Face It' has truly saved the day with my skin, once again. It's not every day you come across something that checked all the boxes to what you want and it's all in this little bottle!

Top 5 Cleansing Oils for Combination Skin*

From the very start when I first to dabbled into skincare, I have never been a strong advocate for anything with oils. I would always avoid any kind of oils despite not trying it or knowing what it could do for my skin. When I think of oils, I immediately think of grease and slip and I am sure you would be thinking of this too. But as I started to be more active with my skincare and am able to be more intelligible (being a blogger), I now appreciate the astounding benefits that cleansing oils had for my skin. You can say that I am now completely converted to using cleansing oils and can't imagine any skincare routine being without it. Cleansing oils has been a game changing product for me and I am here to give you reasons why I'm a stronger believer and my top 5 cleansing oils that helped my combination skin.

Best Korean Skincare for Combination Skin*

There has never been a time in my life where I had felt my skin was at its 100% best. It was always "better than normal" but I honestly still loathed a lot about my skin. The indestructible blackheads, the persistent breakouts, the bumpy textured skin, the desert-sand chapped lips and skin... there was just a never-ending list of imperfections that returned with the seasons. I had tried a tremendous amount of "western" skincare and there were a lot of hits and misses. Because my skin is thin and delicate, it couldn't handle a lot of highly concentrated products. Even though there are brands, like Philosophy, The Ordinary, Avene, La Roche Posay, Kiehls, Jurlique, Lancome that did justice for my skin, there was still a few issues that I had such as the expensive prices, unavailability or they were just not right for my skin (short term and long term). So, it was time to venture into Korean skincare.
