Topic: Make-up / Urban Decay Naked dupe at Aldi

I went to Aldi yesterday but in our town all of the palettes were already sold out. Should have grabbed it last Friday. Oh well…

Here are all my lovely presents! I cannot believe how many lovely things you got me, or that you managed to get a perfect combination of things that were very me! anastasiastarz you are too lovely!

That amazing smell wafting out of my parcel was the most delicious coconut and vanilla candle (two of my fave scents, put together they are so scrummy!), followed by some super cute jewellery (I love the teeny skull studs- they are hardcore and adorable at the same time!). I got one lip gloss for fun times and one lip balm with SPF 50 that will be perfect for swim teaching at the beach in a few weeks. The gorgeous red nail polish has already made it onto my toes and the hair cuff will probably be a part of tomorrow’s outfit! As a beautyholic I am almost ashamed to say this but I squealed out loud when I saw the fluoro pens- such a teacher thing, who wouldn’t want their work marked in fluoro green?!! Did your teacher beau give you the idea for those? I love them so much!
Again, thank you so much for spoiling me rotten! :) :)

Topic: Talkback / Best In Beauty 2014 Winners

I had a look back thru last years Best In Beauty thread, and it appears that the winners got their prizes exactly this time last year (ie this week). But I’m thinking that with Christmas and Beautorium, the BH ladies are so flat out, so I’m tipping it will be early in the new year. So excited!

Topic: Health & wellbeing / Lift Esteem

Just to let you beauties know that my thoughts are with all of you.
I have concentrated on the family crisis for the last few months.
I miss you all. I miss a lot of my life that I have chosen to put on hold while I prioritised others.
Hopefully, in the New Year things should ease and I will be back with you all more regularly.
Take care all of you, those who are struggling, those who support and those who do both.

I sent mine a little late too- oops :( Had it ready to go on Sunday but then realised- no mail on Sundays!!! Sent it on Tuesday as I had no chance to get to the post office on Monday.

And I got mine today! Thank you to the very lovely Anastasiastarz for my presents! I squealed in excitement when I saw them all and when I opened the bag it smelt so amazingly delicious.

Has anyone received an email yet from bh about the delivery of our box? I think we’ll get it in the new year. Something big to look forward too! :)

I haven’t heard anything either! Aww, I really wished we could’ve received it before Xmas, what an amazing package it would’ve been to kick off the festive season!

Agreed! Not sure where I will be after Christmas as well, don’t know how long I will be going home for. I’m sure the BH ladies have been super busy with Beautorium, which is why they won’t get here before Christmas :) hello to a beautiful New Years!!!

Topic: Anything but beauty / Beauty Therapy diploma courses

Emily165, you are lucky to have two colleges to choose from. I studied beauty therapy thirty years ago, and at that time there was only one school in the city that I could go to. And to study additional courses in makeup and aromatherapy, I had to travel to another city. Perhaps see a school career guidance counsellor to assist with your decision. I agree with the previous poster; go on a tour to both colleges and see how you feel about them.

I’m a bit confused. You said that you will be in year 12 next year, yet you are already working in a spa. How have you managed to work in a spa whilst studying this year? How will you manage studying beauty therapy next year whilst finishing year 12 and working in a spa? That sounds like a very heavy workload.

Taking A Look At: Camp Beauty + Survival Kit Brush Set & Primer – Review

http://triedandtestedblog.wordpress.com/2014/12/12/taking-a-look-at-camp-beauty-survival-kit-brush-set-primer-review/

An all natural primer and a brush set with amazing winning features!

TriedandTested, thank you for your blog post on Camp Beauty. I will keep their slightly shorter makeup brushes in mind for the future. I looked at many Australian stores for a set of shorter brushes, but I ended up buying the green series of Bdellium Tools shorter brushes from iHerb.com. Some of the makeup from Camp Beauty on their website looks good; especially their eyeshadows.

My pleasure Petal! They’re definitely worth purchasing when your Bdellium ones get old. I love the look of the array of makeup products they have and being created by 2 makeup artists, you just know how lovely and high quality they will be as the creators know what they’re talking about!

Topic: Make-up / What's your favourite tinted moisturiser/BB cream?

I forgot to mention that I tried the Smashbox Camera Ready CC Cream and it looked promising. I need to go back and test it properly i.e. check it in sunlight and see if it is too dark on my pale skin; and see whether it pools into the larger pores. The time that I tried the CC cream, it seemed to tone down the redness on my face.

Topic: Make-up / What's your favourite tinted moisturiser/BB cream?

I must be the only person that doesn’t understand the BB craze. That’s probably because I don’t work and I have the time to apply my moisturiser and foundation separately. Also, I have broken capillaries, so most BB creams don’t provide enough coverage.

I tried the Innoxa Skin Perfecting Foundation 5 in 1 BB Cream which was a great match for my pale skin, but it didn’t have enough coverage.

I tried the Jane Iredale Glow Time Full Coverage Mineral BB Cream, but that didn’t work on my dry skin. However, the palest shade in Glow Time is so pale that in some lighting it was almost ghostly; probably due to the SPF. If anyone has normal/combination/oily skin that is pale, you might want to give it a try.

Topic: Anything but beauty / What is Annoying you at the moment...???

Hi! I’m back and I just want to rant!!

I have a pre-recorded tv show that I wanted to finish watching when I get home from work. Hubby thinks it’s sh!t so he asked me if we can watch one of his pre-recorded shows first so he can watch as well. I said yes and waited patiently for 2 hours!!!
I made myself busy by looking at some catalogues and when I looked up he has just deleted the show I wanted to watch without asking me!!! He didn’t even say sorry and just said I have another recorded show I can watch anyway!
And now he can’t understand why I’m sooking here in the bedroom and doesn’t want to stay with him in the lounge.
Aarrgghhh!!

That is annoying Smiling! Not very understanding and it makes me sad when people don’t think of others’ feelings. I hope he’s having an off day and is better and more thoughtful very soon. Hugs to you.

But! I’m sooooooo glad to seeeee you again. I was thinking of you the other day. I think of you whenever I see half of someone’s name and how you said your name shows up like a baby horse, you know what I mean, I hope, that’s so cute. I hope you had a good trip Smiling.

Topic: Talkback / BH Trial Team

Cocoabutter, I’ve been using the Al’chemy Lavender & Anthyllis Leave-In Conditioner for just over a year. It does not contain silicone. In fact, it is the only silicone-free leave-in conditioner that I have found in Australian stores. You can buy others from Australian websites specialising in natural products and also from iHerb.com in the US. Al’chemy make some excellent products.
