Benefit Brow Zings

Before last year, I hadn’t even used a Benefit product (shocking, I know!). Now I would say I'm a teeny bit obsessed with Benefit! The first product I tried was the go TropiCORAL cheek & lip kit….I hated it! The colours were all wrong for me and I ended up passing it on. Then last year, I was wandering around Myer and came across the Benefit stand. While the service was pretty awful (I was ignored for about 5 minutes until one of the ladies finally asked me if I needed help) the products looked so good AND they were doing little eyebrow makeovers.

The Nail Files - Leopard Print

Today I am launching a new segment called The Nail Files (get it?). I LOVE doing my nails, I love buying nail polish, I love nail art and I love getting manicures. I have a drawer overflowing with nail polishes and still, I keep buying them! I also own a UV lamp and occasionally do my own gel nails at home too. So I thought I would start a series dedicated to my various polishes. This  nail look is inspired by Jessica-Anne from Taken By Surprise and her I Scream Nails Masterclass, enjoy!

Benefit They're Real Push-Up Liner

When I first heard whispers of this product release a few weeks ago, I nearly DIED with excitement. Benefit has quickly become one of my favourite brands, there's just something about their products that is very unique. The packaging alone is enough to make most women immediately want to own everything in the collection, regardless of whether they would actually use it. I was lucky enough to grab one of the very first Push-Up Liners when they went on pre-sale, I was actually the first person in Brisbane to purchase one in store and it was VERY EXCITING! Here's what I thought of the They're Real Liner.
First person in Brisbane (and maybe Australia!) to pick up my Push-Up Liner in store on pre-sale

LUSH Volcano Foot Mask

Surprise, surprise, my love affair with LUSH continues! In this post, I review something a little bit different. It’s a mask…for your feet! If you are anything like me, apart from a pretty coat of polish, my poor tootsies are mostly neglected. I do get an occasional pedicure, but apart from that I pretty much leave my feet to it. And on the odd occasion where I do take a closer look, I am usually horrified! How did they get so dry and scaly? How can I allow myself be carted around the place on those poor pieds? Well, worry no more, thanks to the Volcano Foot Mask!

Boe Beauty Eye Products

If you follow me on Instagram (@kaboomcosmetics, do it!), you might have seen Boe Beauty featured on one of my recent posts. I was a little sceptical at first, could something so cheap actually be decent quality? But I’ve quickly become a Boe Beauty advocate, I cannot say enough good things about the brand! Today I’m going to be reviewing two mini products, the Boe Beauty Liquid Liner and Mascara.

Skincare 101

Today I am going to be talking about my favourite skincare products. It was really difficult to keep it down to 5, so I am going to be talking about my favourite face products today and doing another general skincare products post later. So, to business!

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water

I have always been a bit sceptical of micellar cleansing waters. How can something that is essentially bottled water be any good at removing makeup? I have used both the highly raved about Bioderma Crealine H20 Cleanser & its sister product, the Bioderma Sebium. I have also tried the Avene Micellar Lotion. I thought they were ok but really nothing special (and also quite pricey!). I happened to be browsing the aisles of Priceline with a $50 gift card clutched in my sweaty paw (thanks sis!) when I spied this GIGANTIC bottle of micellar water lurking by the counter. I had been looking for a new makeup removal product for a while (Ultrabland is great, especially in winter but quite messy & time consuming) so I was quite pleased to spy this and very happy with the results!

Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipsticks

I’ve you’ve been keeping up with my lipstick escapades in the Lipstick Tag and the Lipstick Product Addict Tag, it will come as no surprise to learn that Rimmel is one of my very favourite drugstore brands, especially when it comes to lipstick. I LOVE the Kate Moss range by Rimmel and not just because Kate is one of my idols! The Moisture Renew Range launched in March and Georgia May Jagger, another gorgeous gal, is the face of the new range.

Her Fashion Box - May

Well hello there lovely readers!

Guess what? My May Her Fashion Box arrived today, delivered by my wonderful extremely disgruntled postman. He seems genuinely upset that he has to deliver so many parcels to me every week, not that it's his job or anything...ANYWAY! My HFB is here and I have another unboxing video to share with you (apologies for looking like a sleepy ferret in the video!).

Taking Out the Trash - May

It's that time again! Time to take out the trash! I, once again, managed to finish quite a few products over the course of the month. I did try to keep it short but I do like to chit chat so the video is nearly 20 minutes long!

The May Rundown

May is done and dusted! Can you believe we are almost halfway through the year? It feels like it’s just whizzing by! Here’s what I got up to this month.

Out & About

Work has been a bit hectic as we are gearing up for the field season which requires A LOT of preparation. I did manage to get out with friends to a delicious little tapas bar at Southbank called Olé but I was too busy drinking wine and eating tapas to take any pictures! I was also given tickets at the last minute to attend the launch of Ciroc Coconut at Dandy’s Rooftop Bar at the Fox which was fantastic. The cockatails were delish, as was the food and we discovered the magic of Uber, which is a private taxi service. Great night all up! This month also saw the launch of the vlog section of KaBOOM! Cosmetics which I am thoroughly enjoying, so please head over to YouTube and subscribe to my channel.
