Dolce & Gabbana The One Perfume and Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed in Opal.

Hi lovelies!

I hope you've all been well, and keeping warm this cold winter (if you're The lovely people at Recreate Yourself ( recently offered me the opportunity to try their website out. I was given the generous opportunity to pick something out and experience their service for myself.

With a generous array of skincare, haircare, perfumes and cosmetics on offer, it was no easy feat trying to decide what to pick, but I went with the Dolce & Gabbana The One EDP Perfume, which I'd always wanted, and the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed in Opal, which has been on my wishlist for ages!

I picked out my items on a Wednesday, the dispatch email was sent out to me on the Thursday and I received my items the following Monday! I'd say 3 day shipping (business days, that is) for standard shipping to Victoria is really good! I also received two cute little freebies with my order, an ASAP cleansing gel sample and a mini nail file.

May 2015 Lust Have It Review!

Hi lovelies,

How are we all keeping now that winter is upon us? Luckily, the contents of my May Lust Have It are perfect for pampering my skin in the colder weather we're currently facing! I'm a little behind with my box reviews thanks to being away for so long and also because the boxes from Lust Have It got a little mixed up...they skipped the April box to get back on track.

So here's what I received in my May box.

Bloom foundation stick in Base One (full sized)

SOAK hair shine shampoo (deluxe sample)
SOAK hair revive conditioner (deluxe sample)
SOAK skin booster body lotion (deluxe sample)

HOLA seaweed moisturising essence (full sized)

NUXE huile prodigieuse body oil (sample)

LONVITALITE 24k active face mask
LONVITALITE 24k active eye mask (one sample each)

I believe Lust Have It have done away with the pink mesh bag from previous months, as the contents now arrive in a cardboard sleeve wrapped with pink tissue paper. It's a bit of a shame as the pink mesh bags were quite cute, and very handy!

M.A.C Wash & Dry Limited Edition Collection - Steam Heat Lipstick and Warm Wash Eyeshadow Palette.

Hi lovelies,

I've totally fallen in love with the M.A.C Limited Edition Collections...they never fail to suck me in with the beautiful new packaging, plus we all know what a weakness I have for those dreaded two words - LIMITED EDITION. I wouldn't say I ordinarily succumb to FOMO (Fear of Missing Out) but it does happen when it comes to makeup, because nothing says regret like that makeup you didn't buy, am I right?!

The new Wash & Dry Collection launched online in Australia last week, but many of the items sold out quite quickly. The good news, however, is that the collection launches in Australian stores today, the 1st of June, so there's still time to run in and get the items you're lusting over.

I was fortunate enough to be sent the lipstick in Steam Heat, a cherry red, and the Warm Wash eyeshadow palette, pictured below. Bear with me, this is going to be a very photo-heavy post as I love the packaging of this collection, it's so cheerfully bright and gorgeous!

Lush Cosmetics | A review of Yummy Mummy Shower Gel and Body Conditioner and Love You Mum Soap.

Hi lovelies,

The lovely people over at Lush Cosmetics sent me a gorgeous pack a couple of weeks ago, containing several goodies from the limited edition Mother's Day Range. I received the Yummy Mummy Shower Gel and Body Conditioner, Love You Mum Soap, Mother Superior Bubbleroon and Rose Bombshell Bath Bomb.

Lush Cosmetics Goodies.
Aren't they simply gorgeous? What I love about Lush is the products aren't just cute, they are also freshly made by hand, ethically conscious, smell amazing and have the cutest names! I think that's a fair few reasons to love Lush!

The Sisterhood of World Tag!

Hi lovelies!

I've got some great news, I'm back in Melbourne! Did you miss me? This means that regular beauty blogging will now resume! To kick things off, I'm going to begin with this cute tag that the lovely Samileen from A Beauty Detour tagged me on. Do check our her blog, it's full of well written posts, great blogging advice and beautiful photos (her account is one of my favourite Insta accounts, too)! Let's hop to this, shall we?

Oh, and if you happen to like the photo above, it's one of my amateur attempts at photography! I've opened a new account on Instagram (called @thepixtress) which you can follow me on for more of the same!

Sleek Makeup Blush by 3 Palettes in Sugar and Flame Review & Swatches.

Hi lovelies,

I've got a quick and easy review today for you, and that's on two Blush by 3 palettes called Sugar and Flame from Sleek Makeup. I already own a couple of other shade collections in these blush palettes, together with several blush singles, but I left them all in Melbourne. I picked up these two additions to my collection a few months ago when Luxola had a sale and I really like both, though I'll admit to having a preference for Sugar.

Both palettes are warm toned, with each palette containing 3 matte/shimmer shades in complementary colours (hence the Blush by 3 name).Each trio is housed in a sturdy, slim and compact plastic case which shuts securely and fits neatly into the palm of your hand. Each compact also has a large mirror built into the lid, which I seldom use but still love to see included! The only (slight) complaint I have on the packaging is that it's a little difficult to determine which palette you've picked up without flipping it over to see the name on the bottom.
