Well Summer and the holiday season is well and truly on its way and it is pretty obvious from our wishlists this week!
1 - Glasshouse Christmas Party Candle – AU$42.95 – Because it smells of orange and spicy nutmeg and what could be more Christmassy?
2 - MAC Fix + – AU$15 – I haven't tried the fixing make up by spritzing before, but with green tea, chamomile, cucumber, and a fresh, natural, energizing scent of Sugi (?), this should be the one to start with. On www.maccosmetics.com.au it's only $15, but I'll get mine at Myer, and let you know the price there (as the reviews all say it's a little expensive and $15 doesn't seem bad to me).
3 - The Body Shop Vitamin E Face Mist - AU$23.95 – As I was researching the MAC Fix + I came across a lot of reviews that said that this did the job just as well, but for a lower price. At $23.95 you do the math. Anyway, I thought I should get both and compare. Stay tuned.
4 - Dr Lewinn's Skin Perfect Foundation – AU$39.95 – as well as being long lasting, it has SPF15 and claims to help visibly smooth wrinkles and fine lines, leaving skin looking firmer and more youthful. Amoung other chemically sounding names that the company claims to have put in it, it also contains nice things like rose stem cells and hyaluronic acid, which assists in hydrating the skin giving it a beautiful, radiant glow. Sounds good to me.
5 - Dr Lewinn's Skin Perfect Primer – This is logically the perfect base for the foundation above, with Evermat™ technology to visibly reduce the appearance of pores and absorb excess oils, without over-drying. $29.95
As you can probably tell, with the sudden onslaught of summer I'm looking to change my make up to cope with the heat wave.
1 - Mac Holiday Eye Kits in Smoky Eyes - AU$89 – I'm not going to lie, this is mostly all about the packaging. Can you blame me?! Plus, who doesn't love a holiday gift pack!?
2 - Bumble and Bumble Defrizz - AU$49 – As soon as the humid stormy summer begins, my hair goes up in a top knot and doesn't come out until around April. I hate it but could Bumble and Bumble be my solution to summer frizz!?
3 - Mecca Cosmetica To Save Face SPF 30+ – AU$45 – I am very particular about wearing sunscreen every day and also about what kind of sun cream I use on my face because there is nothing worse than heavy, greasy cream on your face! To Save Face sounds like a must-have product for summer!
4 – Dove Summer Glow – AU$11.20 – I'm not really into fake tan because it scares me a little bit so I kind of rock it pale all year round. I probably need to make a bit of effort in summer so a gradual tanning moisturiser might be the way to go.
5 – Tarte Maracuja Blush & Glow – US$32 – Another Sephora product that will probably be impossible to get in Australia! I am after a peach blush all of a sudden and this one just seems like fun!
Have a great weekend, ladies! Try not to melt away in the Australian heat (if that is where you are currently residing!)
