If you follow any of the Brisbane beauty bloggers (which you should because they're all amazing!) then you may have noticed a few posts about Harbour Day Spa recently. That's because the team at Harbour Day Spa were kind enough to extend an invitation to a whole lot of the Brisbane girls so that we could try out some of the treatments they have on offer. So yes, everything you are about to read about was provided as a complimentary service BUT I wouldn't be writing about any of this if I didn't enjoy myself. And if the title of this post isn't enough of a giveaway, IT WAS AMAZING!

I'm pretty impressed that I actually managed to film a whole 2 videos this month! It might not seem like much but for me, it's a nice little change from blogging, it's fun and I get to ramble on endlessly about cosmetics and beauty products. Honestly, what's not to love?
Today's video is an updated favourites featuring some of my current loves.

You may remember a small segment I started called Ace Yo' Base. Well it's back for the Primer Edit! I love primers, which might seem like a weird makeup prodcut to love because it's not like they're pretty or anything but I do love them. I think it's because without them, my skin can very easily become an oil slick. Here are some of my top primer picks.

I love a good matte lip colour so I was really excited to hear about this new release from Rimmel. The original Apocalips line was very popular, although I wasn't really a fan because I found the formula quite liquidy and hard to work with. Here's what I thought of the new addition to the Apocalips line.

You might remember that one of my goals for this year was to use up more of the things I have and spend a little less. I have been semi-successful with that and have been trying really hard to keep shopping my stash, rather than spending on things I don't need. It's been pretty useful to see what I actually have and like using and what I'm just hoarding for the sake of it. Here's what I've been trying to use more of lately.

I have been dying to write this post since I picked up this palette about a month ago, along with the new Nars All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation. I have since returned the foundation but the Hourglass palette will never leave my hands again! Possibly a slight exaggeration but I do really like this palette. Here's the lowdown on Obscura.

It's confession time and I have to admit that I....am a mascara hoarder! I love mascaras and have drawers of them but given how short their shelf life usually is, I do have trouble using them all up. I have been trying to pick a few and use them before they dry up. To that end, I've picked my Top 3 Mascaras of the Moment to share with you.

Today I'd like to talk about a local brand run by an amazing woman, Dunkle Authentic. Molly Dunkle runs Dunkle Authentic and not only is she a very talented make-up artist, but she also hand crafts all of the products. What started with a lip balm at age 12 has grown to include a range of lipsticks and lip glosses and there are SO many more exciting things to come.
