Topic: Industry watch / New subscription box... The Parcel

I kind of wish they hadn’t given spoilers into the box. You pretty much know everything in the box, which can be good as to knowing if the box is worth subscribing. But I like a bit of surprise, for me it is one of the best bits about subscription boxes.

Topic: Industry watch / free samples

OMG! Who remembered the Jo Malone perfume sample 1-2 months ago? Wow today I received the perfume sample in a beautiful box! Here’s a pic! Hope other ladies received it aswell :)

I got it too but mine was in a little paper bag :) I was very impressed with how much effort they put into their samples! I could smell the freshness of the perfume as soon as I opened the envelope~ (don’t worry, nothing was leaking!) Can’t wait to try it!

I kind of wish I had stayed away from all these spoilers of the first box but they’re too tempting!

Oh wow, that looks fab! I need to master the splatter technique, I tried it with a straw but didn’t get far. Love the studs too!

Thanks, Coconal! I think we need thinner straws than are readily available in Australia – some of the blogs I read say to use coffee stirrers (US)??
Exciting stamping plate purchases! I went in the MM site the other day and saw that we have to pay for postage now…so bummed!! :-(

Topic: Make-up / Looking for a new primer, any advice?

Thanks ladies, definitely noted those products!
I was looking at the clarins one too, got a relative who works there should ask what she thinks of it! Had a look at the Inika primer, loved the ingredients but has shea butter which clogs my pores interestingly..
I got a sample of the hourglass veil primer when I purchased a loose powder at mecca, very light and velvety but whoa damn expensive stuff!
Dermalogica products I had a look too, but unfortuately its silicone base and same with SHE products :(

It’s not really site-seeing, more to do with shopping, but make sure you raid Walmart/CVS/Walgreens/Rite Aid etc. for super cheap drugstore makeup!

Topic: Fragrance / Fake fragrances

I’ve never doubted the authenticity of CW products. I have bought several fragrances from them and been very happy. The prices are great, especially when they’re on sale. Of course you don’t get the department store experience, but if you know what you’re after then its great value!

Topic: Hair / Toning brassiness in lightened hair, help?!

My favourite product for toning my hair is the Lee Stafford Bleach Blondes Shampoo. I use it every second night and every few weeks i’ll apply it to my damp hair and leave it in for about 15-20 minutes. It’s the best shampoo i’ve found for maintaining colour as it’s NOT a violet/pale purple colour like many others, so it actually works and i prefer it as a leave in toner over other packet dyes. It’s sold in priceline and it’s very affordable. I’ve had natural and bleach blonde hair all my life and this is my favourite product to combat any yellow tones.

https://www.priceline.com.au/hair/hair-care/shampoo-and-conditioner/bleach-blondes-shampoo-250.0-ml

There are many other brands of toners but i find that since they are more blue than purple, they leave a slightly more silver shade and it looks unnatural (IMO). BUT in saying that, they do still help get rid of any brassiness and may work better for your shade of hair. Any blonde toner from Schwarzkopf is excellent and really cheap.

Good luck! :)

Thanks for your reply! I forgot to mention im in New Zealand, have you tried the schwarzkopf nordic blonde toner, or the schwarzkopf live silver toner? Those are the two we have here and i have been eyeing them up for quite some time but not sure if the nordic blonde will stain my hair since it looks super pigmented, in saying that, im using the Kms california blonde shampoo and its a light violety colour and isnt helping my brassiness

Topic: Talkback / The top 100 beauty products competition

I’d hope with a big comp like this, BH will make an official announcement, but I know I’ve won a comp on here and didn’t know about it until a parcel showed up in my mailbox. Maybe the lucky winner doesn’t know yet.

Nicole, are you quite sure? I’d need it checked out before I commented further.

I’ve just seen that some people have gotten their first The Parcel Box early (possibly Vloggers). I watched Messy Downunder ‘s YouTube unboxing and wow what a great box. Just cant wait for mine; I’m definitely going to extend to a subscription after the first box.

Topic: Talkback / !! WARNING!!! HAUL:D

To everyone who asked for my thoughts on the Zoeva brushes…they are AMAZING! My makeup looked incredible after I applied it, even if I say so myself. :P

I only wish the powder brush was a bit denser, because it tends to kick loose powder all over, but it’s pretty good for pressed powders and just dusting over your face. Hope that helps!

Oh they look so lovely and I adore Rose Gold. Your review is not helping my willpower or my wallet.

Sorry! :P
