Top Makeup & Beauty Products

Hi everyone, I’ve tried a number of beauty product for the first time recently and added a few of them to my favourites list:

Too Faced Melted Violet
I discovered the Melted range from Too Faced a few months ago at Mecca Maxima. I have a number of Melted lip colours now but the Violet version is most definitely my favourite. It’s such a unique and beautiful shade. I don’t see too many purple shades and, when I do, they can be too dark. However, this is undoubtedly the most beautiful colour ever. It’s also a good texture as I prefer gloss instead of matte. As a bonus, the packaging is sweet too. Some of the colours in this range don’t stay on the lips particularly well and end up on my face. Luckily this isn’t the case for Melted Violet.

Miss Dior

I’ve never owned a Dior fragrance before and obviously they can be rather pricey. However, there was a 50% off sale at Priceline a few weeks ago so I thought it was the perfect opportunity to add Miss Dior to my perfume collection. Priceline has some amazing sales; if you wait long enough, most things will come on sale. I’m not great at describing scents so I won’t try but it’s one of my favourite fragrances. It’s really light and beautiful.

Soap and Glory Rich and Foamous Body Wash
After hearing so much about Soap and Glory on blogs and youtube channels, I thought I’d like to try it. I didn’t know which product to try so I went for a body wash. The scent is really lovely and it’s light and a good texture to apply. It’s so relaxing having a bath and applying this product. Of course the packaging is super adorable and part of the appeal. It’s very much like the brand ‘Dirty Works’ in terms of design which is much more available here in Australia. I’ve posted a couple of times before about ‘Dirty Works’ and particularly enjoy their bubble bath.

L’Oreal Preference Hair Colour in Pure Scarlet
This is the colour I’ve always used since I started dyeing my hair red earlier in the year. I’ve seen mixed reviews on it but its been great for me and deserves a mention here. There were limited options to choose from when I made the decision to go for red hair so this one stood out. I still wish my hair was brighter, just like Ariel the Little Mermaid, but I never wanted to bleach my hair so I think I’ve done really well with just a boxed hair dye. I’ve had a number of comments of this nature. It also lasts long and fades much less than I would have expected. I plan to continue using this product for quite awhile. 

 
Beauty & Makeup Favourites
OPI Nail Polish in Rising Star 
What is there not to love about a gold nail polish!?! This one is a gorgeous vibrant and shiny gold. The consistency is nice and thick and it doesn’t chip too easily. It’s definitely my most worn nail polish at the moment.

Maybelline Colour Tattoo Eyeshadow in Bad to the Bronze
I’ve mentioned a number of times that the Maybelline Colour Tattoo range is my favourite makeup product ever (in any category). It’s so easy to use, even for those of us who are terrible at eyeshadow. It is incredibly long lasting and lives up to its claim of being a 24 hour product. For many months I alternated between Silver Strike and Bold Gold. However, I’ve recently added Bad to the Bronze into the rotation. I hadn’t previously considered it as I thought it was too neutral; I’m more into bolder shades. However, it’s actually a really beautiful shade, not at all boring and less brown than I’d expected. I definitely recommend giving it a try.

John Frieda Colour Refreshing Gloss

I’ve only used this product once as I bought it last week at the 50% off hair products sale at Priceline (best sale, I’ve never been so excited by hair products before). I’ve always wanted to try a product of this nature. It’s supposed to be applied to wet hair after shampoo and conditioner, once a week, to refresh the colour. The colour was very noticeable after a hair wash; my hair was much less dull and faded. I don’t usually have much success with hair products of any variety so I was happy with this result.
