My Sephora Haul – Unboxing and Review


Last week I made an order with Sephora Australia to try some of the Clinique beauty and skincare products. I was really impressed with the service and delivery, after ordering I received my goodies in under a week!

The products I ordered were;

  • Take the Day Off Cleansing milk $47
  • Pop Lip Colour in Punch pop, Grape pop and Poppy pop $38 for Grape and $40 each for others
  • Chubby in the nude foundation $57
  • Cheeky pop in Ginger pop $40
  • Take the day off eye makeup remover $33

Total: $295

Sadly I got the wrong colour foundation but I am going to be using it as a contour anyway!

The three lipsticks are so smooth and don’t dry out my lips, they are all highly pigmented and go on the lips very smooth; the colour is also buildable so you can lightly put it on for a natural look or apply more for a more bold look.

The Cheeky pop is probably the most beautiful blush design I have ever seen. The blush itself is very natural very smooth on and not a chalky blush at all.

As for the cleansing products, I am a major fan of the cleansing milk it makes taking off the day a lot easier, its not harsh on my sensitive skin and it actually makes it feel moisturised and refreshed.

I wasn’t as impressed with the eye makeup remover, I am not sure if I was using it wrong or not, but it wasnt working the best. I am definitely going to be giving it a few more tries to give it a proper test, so I will let you know in my next review if I got it to work for me.

Overall, I was so impressed with all the Clinique products and they arent the first products I have tried as well.

This is the first time ordering online with Sephora Australia online and I was really impressed with the service as well. I have the app and they have heaps of App only deals.

Has anyone shopped with Sephora before?

How was your service?

Knee High boots, Why I love them and How to wear them!

Hey Guys welcome back to my blog, todays post is about my knee high boots from Duo Boots and I am absolutely loving them, I was lucky enough to be gifted them.

 

Here is the link if anyone wants to get them

Knee High Boots

These boots are super comfy and I love that you can pick the calf size so you aren’t wearing boots you have to squeeze into or that are loose around your calfs. I also love that their is in between sizes as well. I can rarely find places that do in-between sizing, does anyone else have this problem?

So here is a few inspo options for how you could wear your boots.

This is one of my favourite ways to wear the boots, I think it is flattering to all shapes as well.

This could be a knit dress, body-con dress or really any shorter dress.

Next up is this outfit styling;

I also love the look of shorts with knee highs as well. I find boots look a lot better with dresses, shorts and skirts then they do with jeans. Jeans can make you look more stocky, especially if you are more curvy like me.

Black-Skirt-and-White-Sweater

Lucky last inspo is this outfit, as I said before I love skirts or shorts with the boots.I think this look is very classy and elegant, plus it is flattering in all sizes as well. Outfits like this dont make me feel frumpy and gross, they help shape my curves and make me more confident in my body.

I hope you liked this post, did you want to see more posts like it?

Also I am thinking of doing more body positivity posts and would love to know if you would be interested in seeing them.

Here is the link for the boots again as well if you want to get yourself some.

Brow Tattoing, the must knows before you get it done!

Hey guys, welcome to my page or welcome back if your a follower. 

Recently I got my brows feather tattooed so I thought I would share my whole experience and answer any question anyone has had before they look at getting them done!

I got mine done with Beautiful Brow Boutique on the Gold Coast so if your looking at getting yours done if you mention thatbloggerjade you’ll get $100 off your brow tattoo 😍

First thing I have to say is that now I will never be able to live without my brow tattoo. It has completely changed the way I look at my face. 

This is a before and after of my brows before they healed. They are so naturally drawn and no one even notices they are tattooed. 

This is a photo from my touch up a few weeks ago, where they went over my brows with a slightly different colour to add a more natural look to the brows. 


And here’s an awkward selfie of them all healed and all natural. Honestly I don’t know how I ever lived without brows I love them so much. 

Main questions I get asked about my brows;

Did they hurt;

Yes they hurt a little bit, not any more then a normal tattoo though. It kind of feels like plucking your eyebrows. The worst part is the tips of your brows because it’s more sensitive skin. 

How long do they last;

They last different for every person because everyone’s bodies are different. They last about 2 years though. 

We’re you scared they would mess up your brows?;

No not at all. She measures everything out and shows you how they are going to be before she even starts tattooing. So I knew exactly what I was going to get. 

Would you get them done again?;

Absolutely 100% after I’ve had them done I definitely won’t be going back to natural brows 🙈

On a scale of 1-10 how much did it hurt?;

About a 4/10 it mainly just makes your eyes water. 

If you have any other questions let me know and I’ll answer them!

Also don’t forget if your a gold coaster wanting yours done go see beautiful brow boutique and mention thatbloggerjade to get $100 off!

Makeup Tips and Tricks to up your Slay Game!

Hey Guys, welcome back to my blog! Todays post is going to consist of a list of tips you can use to help up your makeup game and give yourself a flawless base.

18579477_1928682754039118_8865708253028286464_n

Base tips:

  • For a flawless base mix one part primer to three parts foundation, remember this will lower the coverage but smooth out your skin more.
  • Make sure to moisturise and Prime before you put on your foundation, so your skin doesn’t such all the moisture out of the foundation.
  • Always make sure you have done all the cream products before you set your face with a powder, otherwise the foundation will cake.
  • Remember less is more, if you are using a high coverage foundation don’t use concealer if you don’t need to, to avoid caking.
  • Remember to use products suited for your skin type

Eye Tips:

  • Use tape when you want your eyeshadow to be sharp and clean
  • Remember like your face, your eyes need to be primed as well, you can do this with an eyeshadow primer or even works if you conceal and set. This will also make eyeshadow more pigmented on your skin.
  • Remember to layer eyeshadow, start with small amounts. This will help with blending it out. If you aren’t very confident with eyeliner, try black eyeshadow. It is easier to clean up and also easier to manoeuvre.

Lips Tips:

  • Always line your lips and then blend, it helps get your lipstick to last longer
  • Like everything, always prime your lips; this can be done with a scrub or even just coconut oil and a tissue.
  • Don’t be afraid to add pigments to your lips to add some excitement to your lip colour or even some highlight.

Skin Tips:

  • Sheet masks are quick and easy forms of masks; my favourite skincare tip is to leave the sheet mask on overnight, it will allow the mask to properly soak into the skin.
  • Moisturise morning and night even if its just a light moisturiser
  • It is good to exfoliate the skin once a week, this helps remove any dead skin cells
  • Always clean your makeup off, then cleanse your skin. Removing your makeup doesn’t always clean all your makeup off.

This is all the tips I have so far but you can check out more at Belle with Love linked below;

Sephora in America is so much cheaper than Australia, so learn how to take advantage of US pricing with ShopandBox.

So recently I did my second order with ShopandBox, taking advantage of the Sephora VIB sale.

What I got and what they cost in Australia;

  • Too Faced White Chocolate Chip Palette $37AUD
  • Smashbox Glow and Go set (Unavailable in Aus) So $38.69AUD for the cost of US price
  • Sephora Favourites Beauty after last call (unavailable in Aus) So $29.35AUD for the cost of US price

Savings by using ShopandBox: $24.24AUD

Yes the savings arent catastrophically great but any saving is a good saving and a lot of the time you can get amazing deals like the Sephora Favourites boxes you cant get in Australia. Its also a good idea to use Shipping services like ShopandBox when your favourite American companies have amazing specials or exclusive deals, because then you get the most for your money, another great feature from Shopandbox is the amount of samples you get given from your boxer; with my last order I got a whole mix of products including a colour-pop eyeshadow!?! One company to buy from in America is Mac Cosmetics, they have been known to have almost a 100% markup for most products and sometimes even more and it happens with a lot of the Australian Cosmetic stores. For example it’s 17 USD (22 AUD) for a Mac lippie in the US versus 36 AUD in Australia.

If you’ve shopped there before let me know about your experience, plus let me know what you want to hear more about so I can make a list of posts.

You foodz healthy meal plans, what are they like? Are they worth the buy? 

Hey guys welcome back to my blog, sorry it’s been a while since my last post I went on holiday for just under a month and it’s been so hard to catch back up. But I am trying my best to get back to regular posting. I would love if you guys could let me know what kind of posts you want to see in the comments as well. 

So anyway this post is to talk about you foodz, the meals I tried and what I thought of the food. 

So I tried quite a few of the meals, all meals are $9.95 each which is pretty good for a ready to eat healthy meal that’s not been frozen and lost all its nutritional value. 


You foodz has an amazing range from things such as salads, to pasta and ribs. The boneless ribs are amazing by the way! My favourite meal has to be the salmon, I love salmon but it’s so expensive to buy so getting a salmon meal for 9.95 is definitely worth the price. 

All the meals are full of flavour and are amazing servings as well. Most meals I can’t finish because the servings are so big which is really uncommon for calorie controlled meals. After a few days of eating the meals I could feel the difference in my stomach as it is quite sensitive and prone to bloating. I felt lighter and cleaner. I definitely think you foodz is worth the buy if your looking to lose a few kilos and give your body more energy. I am definitely going to order from them whenever I can. 
Has anyone tried them before?

What do you think of them? 

Also guys let me know what you want me to post about next.
