Review - Maybelline dream liquid mousse foundation

I read such good reviews of this product on and as I was just about to run out of my current foundation (Revlon Colour stay)  I thought id give this one a go. I bought this when Priceline was having a buy 2 get one free sale, which they have on their big cosmetics brands every few months.

they have quite a good selection of shades with both yellow and pink bases. Its always good to test the foundation colour and consistency before you buy it. The back of your hand which is where most people test products is actually a different colour to your face; so if you can test it on your face or neck to get the best match.

I was surprised how light this product actually is, its super silky and glides onto your skin. One thing I have found is that because the product is so light and comes out as a mousse you end up needing a little more than you would think. It may sound like a bad thing, but unlike other foundations you can easily choose from a light to full coverage with the product, without getting streaks or caking on your face.

I use one pump for a light-medium coverage and two for a fuller coverage. You gotta love the fact it comes with a pump as well!

Do not go to Christopher Hanna Platinum!!

Over the weekend i went to get my hair done at Christopher Hanna
I've been dying my hair blonde for years! and it was time to touch up my roots and lighten my colour a little coming into summer, so i booked an appointment for a half head of foils and a cut.

The Salon was fairly busy which is always a good sign, but there also seemed to be a lot of stylists running round doing nothing...

I was seated a soon as i walked in and offered coffee or water, but wasn't given or offered any magazines which is always a bummer.

The stylist used a scalp bleach as foils and only applied it to the roots, so i got no colour through the rest of my hair... i would've asked for a tint/scalp bleach if all i wanted done was my roots.

They then left it in too long leaving the bits they had dyed white, while the rest of my hair was a medium blonde. And then had to tone my whole head (which costs extra!!) to even out the colour.

The bad hairdressing skills didn't end there, they applied the toner wrong (i'm not a hairdresser so i don't exactly know how they did this, i'm guessing they just mixed the product wrong) and i ended up with a dull greeny brown tinge all over my hair!!

I've washed my hair multiple times with deep cleansing and silver shampoo to try and remove this colour but nothing seems to work

SO you will never believe what they said to me when i asked them to fix it......

Seriously worst customer service in the History of the world!!!

'you must've put something in your hair that reacted with it'   so its my fault it went green???
Then  'The water changed the colour of your hair'    ....?
and worst of all 'stop moaning about your hair and wasting our time'

Seriously NEVER go to Christopher Hanna!!!

I know have to make time to go to another salon to get my hair fixed, coz I'm not going to walk round with weird Green hair!

Review: Candy doll - lip gloss macaroon pink

I purchased the candy doll pink macaroon lip gloss recently, I thought it was going to be a nice light pink judging from the pictures on pretty much every website.
When it arrived I was surprised at how how strong and how patent the colour was! I was hesitant to try it, as super pink lips was not the look I was going for.

I actually found you only really need a dab of the gloss to completely cover your lips, so you end up with a light translucent veil of pink, not like you’ve gone and stuck your lips in a fairy floss machine. 

The packaging is simple, and the size is nice and compact so you can easily keep it in your bag.

Lovin' the new eBay!

eBay recently launched it's 'Fashion Gallery', wish list and Shopping cart function as well as their deals section.

I'm not sure when each one started, but most were launched over the past few months.

The Fashion Gallery offers Branded eBay stores allowing you to purchase from brands you know ans trust.
The brands it offers are the really well known ones who have stores in pretty much every shopping centre around Aus, such as Supré, Witchery and Bardot.

I wasn't a huge fan of this at the beginning, why buy it in eBay when you can go into the actual store and try it on! But i guess it is good for people living in remote locations who can't get to the shops. However, eBay launched this sub site for the US and UK as well, allowing us to purchase from well known brands over there that wouldn't normal ship here.

Now I'm a fan!

bath salt review

 Over the past few months i have been trying a few different bath salts, some moisturising, sweat baths and relaxing salts.

Here is just a quick review on the products I tried:

Description: ' Bison Bath Additive 7 Hot Spices is enriched of 7 Hot Spices and Hot Spring Minerals. It generates moderate heat for rampant sweating, draining away waste and fat. It also works to moisturize skin for a soft, smooth and clean appearance. 60g '

Not my favourite Bison Bath, I was hoping for more of a sweating effect with this one but i found it to be rather mild. Bath salts had a nice smell but disappeared somewhat when added to the water.

Description: ' Bison Bath Additives (Rose Champagne) is enriched of skin-care elements such as rose hip essence, rose extract, hot-spring mineral, hyaluronic acid and collagen. Take a hot bath and your skin becomes soft, smooth and clean. The bath water becomes champagne pink in colour when the bath salt is fully dissolved. 60g'

Loved !! this bath. Beautiful colour and smell, the bath turned a milky light pink colour with what started out as a kind of artificial grape smell to a soft floral fragrance once in the water. The bath had a mild sweating effect, which is perfect if you still want to lie back and relax in the bath. the milkiness of the bath water slowly disappeared during the bath, at first coating my skin in a silky layer before it was absorbed. The bath left my skin feeling so soft and moisturised. Will defiantly buy this one again!

Descirption: ' FITS ATATAME-BIJIN Ginger & Citrus Bath Additive contains 7 kinds of hydrating ingredients from Japan and China as well as sea salt, a disinfecting and astringent ingredient. Mix it with hot water and bathe to moisturize your skin gradually while sweating a lot. 50g '

I loved the smell of this bath, very refreshing! It says 'sweating a lot' but i would say its more of a mild-medium sweat bath, a little bit of sweating but nothing like this is really hot. I bought the matching cream fro this bath, absolutely love the smell, don't get turned off by the ginger part, its a more a very light citrus fragrance. Reminds me of Summer. But definitely not the nicest bath colour!

Description: 'FITS ATATAME-BIJIN Sake & Sakura Bath Additive contains 7 kinds of hydrating ingredients from Japan and China. Mix it with hot water and bathe to leave the body warm and the skin smooth. 50g'

I found this bath had a minimal heating effect, but it isn't meant to be a full on sweat bath. I loved the smell of this bath, the fragrance was light and natural. The moisturising effect wasn't that great either, but i love the smell so i might buy it again because of that.

i Forgot to take a picture of the salts for this one, so just the packet will have to do.
Description: ' Bison Funwarich Mousse Bath, Pudding forms a creamy mousse veil on skin, tenderly wrapping skin to infuse the potent ingredients. Skin becomes dewy and supple. In addition, softening ingredient is contained to remove dead skin, revealing the bright and smooth appearance. It comes with a thread of delicious pudding scent which releases your soul. It makes an enjoyable bath! 30g'

I hated this one!! its a fluro orange colour which wouldn't be so bad if it didn't leave orange marks all over my bath!! I had to scrub down the bath and myself to get rid of the orange residue left behind. Apart from that the bath was thick and had a super caramel coffee smell the entire time which hung around the bathrrom for days. It did moisturise my skin but the moisturising  effects really aren't enough to make me want to buy it again.
