Topic: Talkback / Beautorium April 2014

I just noticed that the points for Beautorium products were reduced by 25%. This is awfully tempting…

Excellent pick up chunky.monkeys.

I am almost broke with my points, but I do love a good sale! So I’m still looking very happily regardless of my points total.

And really, Beautorium was a freebie and it’s a reduced freebie now!

Oh great pick-up chunky.monkeys! I don’t have enough points for anything though, darn it. Maybe if I keep writing reviews and commenting and I’ll have enough for when they reduce by 50% ;)

Oh that’s annoying! I would have been able to afford the Phillips cleansing brush but just can’t now :(

So frustrating, haven’t been able to find a Marie Claire with the mascara in my area. I did see the modelco lip lacquer though.

Topic: Skincare / WIN: share your anti-ageing tips to score one of 25 beauty packs!

Best tip from me is hydrate (moisturise AND drink plenty of water each day, adults require about 2 litres per day). Eat a well balanced diet full of antioxidant rich fruits, vegetables nuts (if you can) and other healthy fats (eg coconut oil… Yummm). Exfoliate your skin each morning before your wash, exercise regularly and be happy! Simple

Oh yeah, an occasional extravagant treat doesn’t hurt either

Topic: Anything but beauty / Fantastic Furniture

OK ladies I’m looking at buying a couch and am checking out Fantastic Furniture as they have 2-seaters for just $99 until Friday plus I really like the look of their Loft Chaise. Does anyone have a FF couch and are they comfy, I’m an hour away from a store and am hoping to get there on THursday and try them out but any feedback would be appreciated.

Hello friend I also have a furniture which I bought from hospitality furnitures with $450 and it is very good still now.I bought it 3 years before.Its very easy to clean it and also it is very light in wait,so there is no problem to lift it.

Topic: Skincare / Eye cream/serum/gel

Thanks for the feedback on the burts bees Maddybff and Miss Teaaddict :)

I am contemplating the Botani eye treatment in beautorium, says it’s a gel base, I am just a bit hesitant with a cream consistency at the moment.

I might go to our local health food shop and see if they have testers of the burts bees as well and see how it feels though.

No worries :)
I have it here thought id let you know what it says on the back :)
" The light weight eye cream is clinically proven to moisturise the delicate eye area without causing redness or irritation. Helps reduce the appearance of under eye puffiness.
Fragrance free, Allergy tested, dermatologist tested, Ophthalmologist tested, non comedogenic."
hope that helped a little.

Topic: Talkback / Beautorium April 2014 Haul

If we were ‘surprised’ to see beautorium closed from Friday evening and all weekend, can you imagine how ‘surprised’ the ladies at bh were, first thing this morning?

Bet they came in expecting to have an avalanche of orders to process after the weekend shopping – and – ZIP – nothing!

I still have some points left after grabbing my most wanted items last Thursday, so might be tempted later in the week – much easier to shop when there’s less choice!

does anyone know how long it takes to receive orders? are they shipped out as ordered or do they wait until the end of beautorium?

As a general rule we say it can take up to 6 weeks to receive your beautorium haul, however I can reveal that all orders made last week were picked up by the postie today and are on their way!
Oh happy news!!!!
How exciting. Smiling!!!!!
Thanks for bringing this happy news Carly.

Topic: Make-up / Sephora Coming to Australia

Does anyone know if prices will be in like with US Sephora prices?

Definetely not. Considering for all other brands we pay sometimes triple the price than the Americans do. I’m guessing prices will be high like mecca. I’m still not convinced they’re coming though as have not seen anything official. I emailed sephora asking if they would confirm and they just sent a stock standard reply of no stores in aus but you can buy through tarazzz.

I’d say you’re right about the prices. There may be some lowering but then I’d guess that will eventually be reflected in other stores around aust. It’s not planned until 2015 so I’d say we won’t get conformation until they have infrastructure planned/in progress.

This month’s Harpers Bazaar (Naomi Watts on the cover) comes with a Model Co Lip Lacquer – 2 colours to choose from, both pinky shades, one slightly darker than the other. I bought mine at Coles – the deeper shade is called Tango and I wore it today – love it!

Did anyone else just do a massive excited spaz dance around the room after reading that? No? Just me? Carry on.
Yes, Zaralis and thanks so much for keeping us informed, Carly. What a shame we have Easter so soon !!! Just joking but excitement overload. Fantastic work BH Staff.

Topic: Talkback / Project 50 Pan

Ok everyone I’m going to bite the bullet and give this a shot! I’m going to aim for 50!!!!!
I’ve allowed myself exceptions for deodorant, toothpaste wax cartridges and dry shampoo. Literally cannot live without these things!
Doing a big Benefit US order this week and then that’s it, no more beauty spending! (Have also made a sneaky cheeky exception for when a friend is going to the US in a month or so and has promised to pick me up a few things- guys technically I’m not buying it, just my money. Totes legit.)
My boyfriend and I are planning on moving to the UK next year and so….
a) I have so much beauty hoarded away that I cannot take with me so it needs to be used
b) should probably be saving my money for the big move
c) think of all the exciting (and cheaper!) beauty bits I can buy over there!

Any tips guys? I will be sending my boyfriend into Priceline to get the necessities because I can never leave without picking up something. Am I allowed to count my necessity items in my empties?

Ooh, exciting! That’s certainly some great motivation. What you count is entirely up to you. Most people count finishing necessities but I only count them if I’ve had them for too long (like over a year) so I’m counting shower gels & other random stuff but not toothpaste, deodorant, or body lotion as I don’t have a “stash” of them. I also pop $2 intoa money box when I finish a product so after I can spoil myself.

Good luck with it! I aimed to get though 10 shower gels & 10 bath products but have only gone through 2 – I guess 2 is better than none but I want it to go faster :(

Topic: Talkback / Asking for free Samples

Has anyone asked for foundation samples at Mecca Cosmetics?

I’d also like to know this, I’d love to try the NARS sheer glow

Me too! I’ve heard so many great things about NARS sheer glow. I’ve been told it’s very similar to the Rimmel wake me up foundation but would love to see how long lasting it is.
