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?

and do you guys have any favourite Sephora brands to try?

Let me know what review you want to see next, I know I have been a bit slack with posting recently because I was studying but now I have graduated I will be posting more regularly. So let me now what you want to see!

 

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;

17-spring-2016-menswear-street-style-12_grande

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.

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.

18581232_1513458375344731_2638469143749197824_n

What I got and their US Rrp;

  • Too Faced White Chocolate Chip Palette $26US
  • Smashbox Glow and Go set $29US
  • Sephora Favourites Beauty after last call $22US
  • Benefit Refined and Defined Brow Kit $34US
  • Cinema Secrets brush cleaner $8US

Total: $119US

Total with discount: $101.15US

Plus Shipping Fee and and Service Fee: $47.84US

Total Cost: $148.99US

Total Cost Aud: $198.75AUD

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
  • Benefit Refined and Defined Brow Kit $59AUD
  • Cinema Secrets brush cleaner $42AUD

Total: $206.04AUD

Plus Shipping cost: $16.95

Final Total: $222.99

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 want to try, or even check out Shopandbox click the link below. You can use the discover page to find what people are buying at the moment from countries all over the world.

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.

Christmas present ideas part 1. Beauty Junkies!

Hey guys welcome back to my blog!

Today’s post is written to help you guys find presents for your friends and family this year. 


The first few items on my list are these. 

Revo twist lip balm is a perfect stocking stuffer, they are cheap and an essential for any beauty lover!

Revos are $5 each and come in heaps of flavours. 

Next up is the Eco tools. Eco tools have quite a few sets to choose from. This one is a limited edition set. Most of the sets are around the $29.99 range. 

Next up is the body fantasies body sprays come in heaps of scents and cost about $12. They are very Similar to the Victoria secret sprays but they are way cheaper. I am trying three scents sweet pea, Japanese cherry blossom and pink vanilla kiss.  My favourite is the Japanese cherry blossom. It smells amazing. 

Hope you guys enjoyed part one. There is a few more to come. I am going to do them in short bursts so they are easier to read. If you want ideas for certain types of people let me know in the comments.
