One of my favourite drug store items released in recent times is the Face Of Australia Budge Proof Eyeliners. I’ve been wearing the bronze and the electric blue liners so much since I first tried them a month ago- it was hard having to hold off reviewing them until closer to the release date. They are an example of how you can find high end quality products in drug store brands if you know where to look.
The packaging is ingenious- the lid unscrews to reveal the eyeliner pot and a mini eyeliner brush. The brush itself is surprisingly decent quality for something included with product- it is dense and stiff enough to give you good control over the line.
The ultra-smooth, pigment rich formula provides the precision of a liquid liner that’s easy to apply with the built in fool-proof brush. Create thick or thin lines that are perfect every time.
Blackest Black: matte black, semi sheer, requires 2-3 coats for full opacity.
Brilliant Blue: metallic electric blue, opaque in 1 layer.
Espresso: metallic burgundy bronze, opaque in 1 layer.
Pure Purple: metallic lavender, semi sheer.
My favourites are ‘Brilliant Blue’and ‘Espresso’ – both beautifully vivid, highly pigmented colours.

The Body Shop launched their limited edition Vineyard Peach collection at the end of 2012 to overwhelmingly positive reviews online and on social media. I was lucky to be given a chance to experience the collection for myself, and I must say the Vineyard Peach products are probably my favourite from the Body Shop thus far.
The scent is incredible- I adore the scent of peaches, and The Body Shop has done a great job of convincingly replicating the smell of freshly cut, ripe peaches. Sweet, but not at all cloying or heavy.
On the skin, my favourite out of the collection is the Vineyard Peach Body Butter. It’s quite rich, absorbs well, and leaves a lovely scent behind.
Availability: The Body Shop store, or www.thebodyshop.com.au

I was on my way out to dinner a few weeks ago and I felt like indulging in a little bit of sparkle. I hadn’t used my Chanel Illusion D’Ombre in Mirifique for a long time so I had a play with using Mirifique together with a little bit of MAC Reflects Glitter in Gold to heighten the sparkly effect.
I love my Reflects Gold and really don’t use this enough- it gives a beautiful sophisticated sparkle without chunky glitter, and adheres to the lid really well when used with a cream shadow like the Illusion D’Ombre. I’d love to try it on taupe shadow (it’s on the list of my 358 other things I need to try).
