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

These are some things I’ve purchased in the last month 😁 I didn’t include my newly acquired polishes coz I’m still waiting for my latest order to come. Also didn’t include clothes or accessories coz I usually just buy a thing or two now and then.

The octowand I got for $99 (also bought a holder that’s not in the photo) instead of $300 which I’m so stoked about. I took it for a spin today and have gotten so many compliments on my hair and no one ever notices my hair unless I style it (my hair is super pin straight and boring).

Also very pleased with what I purchased from Priceline although there were a few other things that I wanted that the closest Priceline to me doesn’t stock or were sold out.

I will be buying a high powered blender very soon as I’ve just convinced the husband that I need it. I can’t wait for that to arrive!

Topic: Hands & feet / What colour are your nails?

Today’s simple nail look using 2 coats of Born Pretty Store Holographic Nail Polish #5 and laser nail art stickers purchased from Priceline.

The photo is taken with a flash indoors and at night.

I love love love holos! This one is no exception. So stunning!

Topic: Bodycare / Is Home Waxing Legs Doable?

Just to clarify during your period is when your pain threshold is at its lowest. It starts to lower during the premenstrual stage, differs from woman to woman. I only have an issue during. Electrolysis during menstruation-only once. Operator gave me a refund and a reschedule as she hadn’t warned me about it.

Yup so true, I made the mistake of having a 3 hour tattooing session while I was on my period once. It was definitely worse!

Topic: Talkback / Priceline 40% off Skincare! What is on your wishlist???

I’ve been hanging out for this sale for ages! Wanna know what I bought???

Nothing!

I can’t believe it! Even hubby asked if I was OK!
I’m trying to use up my current huge stash, and I’ve still got plenty of stuff from my Glosscars prize. I had intended to buy another Nuxe oil and Trilogy face mist, but they were both out of stock. I’m not desperate for either of them, and I’m sure they will come on sale again sometime soon.

Ha that’s so cute Rose, that even your husband was surprised by your behaviour!
I’m sort of at my fully stocked point too!
I can’t believe that I’m too pooped out to shop….I mean after I’ve finished my priceline goodie bag haul and 40% off skincare haul!!
But I know what you mean and agree with your thinking!!!

Topic: Bodycare / Is Home Waxing Legs Doable?

I see a lot of people talking about epilators here and I’ve got to ask – how do you avoid in grown hairs when using an epilator regularly? I used to epilate and I ended up with such bad in grown hairs despite all sorts of exfoliating that I had to stop.

Topic: Make-up / Best Lipstick

Looks like an awesome site. There are so many colours that I would like but know I wouldn’t wear them a lot, like relentlessly red. I know it’s a matte colour, I quite like the reformulated matte shades from Mac but I lived through the Poppy lipsticks in the early 90s, nothing will ever be that heavy or drying, again.
Thanks for the website link, is it just dotcom after the address?

Me too Rose!! I took a look through my stash and thought ok, what do I need? Cleanser? Nope. Toner? Nope. Scrub? Nope…same for exfoliant, clearing mask, hydrating mask, day serum, night serum…I have so much stuff!! I’m running low on day cream but I probably have enough to last me a couple more months at least. So I feel very proud…
Proud that I am such a compulsive shopper and hoarder that I am finally at saturation point, lol, it’s a special moment.

well it does come off VERY easily, with remover!
Two of my nails ended up with chips on them today at work, so I just removed it all before:)

Topic: Make-up / L'Oreal Colour Riche Trial Team

I’ve used my lippie twice now and I have to say that I’m really disappointed. On both occasions it bled like crazy. Are any of you ladies experiencing this also?

Not a problem I’ve noticed but by the time I get to a mirror after being at work for a while most of it’s worn off from drinking coffee just leaving a shine, also it’s not an overly obvious shade on me. I do like how moisturising it is though.

Yes, it is very moisturising Stay C, and I noticed that there are some really nice ingredients included. I might try wearing it tomorrow (at home!) without a lip liner and see how it goes. Thank goodness I saw myself in a mirror before I went out with a client today. I would have looked like a real goose with all those bleeding lines!
Because the colour isn’t too obvious on me I’ve used it over a couple of lip stains which works really well because it’s so moisturising.
I’ve used it over lipstick and with a lip liner and it bled both times. Today I used it alone and it was fine….not sure why the lip liner made it bleed. I really do love the colour and think it’s perfect for daytime wear on my skin tone.

Thanks for letting everyone know bebeautiful34! I might have to check it out :)

Where did you find this ad?
I’ve tried googling and having a look on the david jones website but I can only find links back to the tote that was available in Feb’14 ??
If you know more please advise – sooo keen if it is around again after missing the priceline goody bag…thank you! :)

I went into the Sydney city Djs and they were by the cash registers on the Lower Ground.
I think they just arrived, and website takes a while to catch up.
Awesome, thank you!! Will keep an eye out online and pop into a store Saturday if I haven’t come across anything :)

Topic: Skincare / IPL skin treatment for pigmentation

Thanks SoMuchPretty for your info, this is awesome!
I have fair skin with faded freckles and pigmentation marks showing across my cheeks and nose.
But there is so much sun damage that shows up on woods lamps.
Hopefully you skin looks great now after your latest procedure!

Topic: Industry watch / !!!!!!Bargain Alert!!!!!

Wow thanks for posting bebeautiful.
The contents seem a bit skimpy this time round compared to the last one. Some of the products are different fragrances/varieties of previous bags too.
I will take a look in shop but I’m on the fence right now.
Is anyone else going to get one? After the Priceline skincare goodie bag and the 40% off skincare sale, I’m way over spent :(

It’s definitely skimpier than the last one but I especially want to try the candle, the Youth Boost and the Molton Brown body wash so everything else is a bonus. I know what you mean though – after the Priceline goodie bag and yesterday’s sale, I need more skincare like a hole in the head!

Uh-huh, I know exactly what you guys mean! Why do all these tempting deals come at once??

Topic: Talkback / Priceline 40% off Skincare! What is on your wishlist???

Hey beauties, an odd question but I access beautyheaven from my phone and I can’t see any pics? I don’t know what I’m missing lol?!
I went to Priceline yesterday but am tossing up whether to go back today! I was going to buy the antipodes mask and the girl said how good it was for spots and well I don’t get spots and was after a hydrating mask and her comment put me off and I ended up buying a manuka doctors kit…bee venom and manuka honey…does anyone know if it’s any good?? Not sure whether I should take it back and get the antipodes or if what I’ve got is ok? I don’t normally buy anything without reading reviews so i was a little thrown!
And no goodie bag where I went either :( and def spent enough to qualify!

Growing old you can’t see the pictures from the mobile site, you’ll need to go to the full site. It should have a link at the bottom of the pages.

I bought the Antipodes mask and used it last night, my skin has felt very hydrated and has looked great today!

Why not try googling some reviews, and that will tell you what other people think about the mask as well.

Hi Imi11 thanks for your response and I will try the full site after this :) I spent hours yesterday looking at reviews but didn’t find that many independent ones on the manuka doctors. I also spent the night regretting not buying the antipodes mask as after reading more reviews I did read it is hydrating, I think it was as I read so many say they use it so successfully on spot treatments I assumed, incorrectly, that it was going to be more drying than hydrating. O’well by the time the next sale comes il be more prepared lol! Again thanks for ur help re the pics
It’s a pimple fighter because of the antibacterical properties in the honey :) Yes be prepared next time! I really liked it!

Topic: Make-up / Best Lipstick

You should check out the website: thebodyneeds2 I get mac lipstick samples from there to try so i don’t waste money on a shade I don’t love all the time!

I was looking at this site last night. I want to buy more MAC lipsticks, but it’s a lot of money to spend on a lippy that you might not like! The only MAC lipstick I’ve got is Syrup, and I love it. I’m considering buying Plumful, Sweetie and/or Angel. I don’t have a MAC counter near me.

How long do their orders take? Are they genuine? How much product do you actually get?
Have you ever ordered paint pot samples?

I got Angel in my last order and it is quite nice! You get quite a lot of product, originally they came in little wind up tubes but now they are in a round pan type thing which you can put your finger in or use a lip brush with! My first order came with the wind up tube and I still have heaps of product left!
I have ordered paintpot samples in my first order and they come in the same container, but you don’t get as much product I don’t think. But again I still have quite a bit left of those als0.

They take around 2 weeks to arrive, and to me they are genuine. The website does tell you how many grams you get, but I can’t remember exactly. I’ve posted my recent order for you to have a squiz at.

Thanks Imi. I’m thinking I might place an order.
You should It’s lots of fun! It’s certainly worth it, because i’ve learnt that I don’t like their Matter formulas. And Its especially good for pigments, I’ve purchased 3 different pigments and I haven’t used them all up yet. Compared to the full size one I have which I have hardly put a dent in either! Money saver there!

I’ve also had freebies from them, a lipstick sample of their own product and also a brush cleaner sample in the most recent order.

Topic: Hands & feet / What colour are your nails?

I’ve had this mani for four days and have gotten so many compliments and questions as to how I did them. They’re actually quite easy to do. It takes time and patience but 0 artistic skills. I think I’ll try it again with a white and black base.

Such a pretty diamond print mani! Did you use striping tape?

Yes I did! It was a bit time consuming but I was very pleased with the end result so it was all worth it
