Philips Lumea Precision Plus IPL

Today I have a rather exciting product to give you an overview of and my impressions so far, the Philips Lumea Precision Plus IPL hair removal system.

I am one of those girls that don’t mind waxing, I have gotten used to the pain but I will avoid it as much as possible as I really dislike waiting for the hair to become long enough to wax again. So I usually end up shaving, which is fast but still annoying because I’m also one of those people with extremely fast hair growth (on my legs at least) and could probably shave everyday. So when the opportunity to trial the new Philips Lumea Precision Plus IPL was offered to me I literally jumped at the chance. I have tried IPL before so I already knew what the process was like and I was pretty comfortable with the idea. (more…)

IMATS 2012 Haul

I don’t know why but I actually really despise the word haul but for lack of a better word there it is. I didn’t go as crazy bananas shopping at IMATS 2012 as I was expecting, I had saved up a lot more cash but I was surprisingly reserved with my spending. That being said there are a lot of things I wish I had of bought and a few things I wish I bought more of. First up I wish I had the patience to line up at Inglot but the crowds were insane and I wasn’t sure what I wanted to buy because I’ve hear so many great things about the brand I didn’t know where to start! But onto my purchases.

Lipstick–Steps to a Longer Lasting Pout!

The following pictorial is something I have actually been meaning to do for a while but it always seemed to slip my mind. But after being gifted the Adderton Maya Liner and Russian Lipstick at Beauty Bloggers Utopia I though they might be the perfect products to use for this look!

As you can see I am using a red liner and lipstick combination but this is the same method I use for any lipstick, unless of course its a formula like the Makeup Forever Aqua Rouge where you apply the liquid lip, wait to dry then apply the gloss.

New! VS Sassoon Big Hair Styler 1000

Last year I had the chance to review the VS Sassoon Big Hair Styler and made two tutorials on how to use it both on long and short hair. Well today I’m back with the new model VS Sassoon Big Hair Styler 1000.

Instead of showing you how to use it like I did in my two previous video’s I thought I’d show you how I re-fresh 2nd or 3rd day hair because the new version works pretty much exactly like the old just with some cool new improvements.

Beauty Bloggers Utopia – Part 2

The Sunday of the Beauty Bloggers Utopia was even more jammed packed with all sorts of activities for us to participate in and was held at Cameron Jane Makeup Design in Surry Hills.

We also leant how to help fix it with makeup and hair styles. Cameron also suggested we get a copy of The Human Face on DVD if we were interested in learning more, which I am going to try and find a copy next week because I found it pretty fascinating!

We were then introduced to the brand Lord & Berry who specialise in eye and lip products.

“The Lord & Berry philosophy is that eyes and lips are icons. In our virtual age of digital technology, eyes and lips symbolise a modern communication that is liberal and spontaneous yet real”
