Living in Australia we are told time and time again about the importance of wearing a good SPF on a daily basis... but do we actually practice it? Since we are in the middle of summer it is a great time to start working a good SPF into your routine, and luckily Cancer Council have released a range of cosmetics with sun protection.

Cancer Council have had sold sunscreens and hats and sunglasses as long as I can remember (yep, I was that little kit at the beach with the dorky hat and sunglasses covered in sunscreen), but they have now released some every day friendly products. One thing that I like about the Cancer Council name is that you know you are getting a really good quality sunscreen with broad spectrum protection. I have seen a lot of articles about how some brands of sunscreens don't protect as well as others, but products from Cancer Council have always been well respected as leaders in the sun protection.

The range now includes base products like the SPF 30 Foundation which comes in three shades, a SPF 30 BB Creme that comes in two shades and a SPF 30 Face Moisturiser that comes in untinted and three tinted shades. I have tried the foundation in Beige, which is a great shade match for me, it is a very creamy feeling foundation that provides a light coverage to even out the skin tone. It would be a great product to throw on quickly if you were having a light makeup day or wanted to look a little more put together when running errands or exercising. The foundation is very moisturising so if you have oily skin you will definitely need to set this with a powder. I have also tried the face moisturiser in Light Beige which is a nice high protection moisturiser that doesn't provide much coverage but definitely takes away any white cast that a sunscreen or a moisturiser might give. I would even recommend this to men or women who want an all in one product that doesn't leave a white cast and evens out the skin tone slightly. Do note that these products don't have added fragrances so they do have a strong sunscreen scent, which I quite like because it reminds me of being a kid. 

The range also includes some other convenient ways to include SPF30 into your daily routine like in an SPF30 Body Lotion, SPF 30 Hand Cream (I have been looking for a great hand cream that contains SPF for a while now), an SPF 30 Lip Gloss and also eight shades of SPF 30 Lipstick! I never even thought about needing SPF in a lipstick, but it actually makes a lot of sense! The shade that I have is Aztec Berry which is a shimmery sheer pink (see swatch below), which is a nice shade but not really something that I would reach for on a daily basis. I would love to see bold matte shades with SPF - that would be my jam!

There are also some great basics like the SPF 30 Face Day Wear Sunscreen, which is my personal favourite way to wear sunscreen on a daily basis as it is non greasy and sits nicely under foundation, and also Fragranced SPF 50 Sunscreen Body Sprays that allow you to reapply during the day without any hassle.

Overall I think incorporating a high SPF broad spectrum sunscreen into normal cosmetics is a great way to get people using sunscreen more often. I have been wearing a face sunscreen on a daily basis for years now, but I do neglect to wear SPF on my lips, hands, and on my body so seeing these products was a bit of an eye opener to me.

My personal favourite products in the range are the hand cream and body lotion because whenever I have tried to use body products that contain a high SPF they tend to stay very greasy and sticky and stick to clothing or furniture and I end up having to wash it off. These products were really creamy but acted like a normal hand cream/body lotion and didn't leave a greasy residue. They also had a really nice fresh skincare scent to them. I highly recommend trying them out!

We're currently in the middle of a hot summer in Australia so I thought I would share my top 5 summer/fresh fragrances. I personally prefer a fresh fragrance all year round because heavier fragrances can often give me a headache, but I am definitely more inclined to want reach for them in the warmer weather as lighter fresher scents are more refreshing. These are the fragrances that I have have been reaching for the most recently (click the name for links to where you can buy them).

This is my favourite scent of 2016 and is probably my most used scent in general. It is a unisex scent that is very light, clean, and reminds me of a waterfall (no idea why). This is also is one of the few fresh fragrances that actually lasts all day!
Top notes: mandarine, violet leaves, wasabi
Heart notes: rose, orris, pebble
Base notes: incense, sandalwood, vetiver

This is more of a sweet feminine fresh scent that has soft floral and fruity notes. It is one of my favourite scents and it is a great way to work in florals to your perfume collection if you find them generally overpowering and a bit stale. The mixture of fruity and floral is perfect and it makes for a really refreshing feminine scent. 
Top notes: grapefruit, apricot, blackcurrant buds absolute
Heart notes: jasmine, woodland lily, rose
Base notes: apple, woody elements

This is a pretty basic fresh scent that would suit most people. It's a little bit of citrus, a bit floral, but the most exciting thing about this is the packaging. It looks like a mini replica of Windex cleaning spray and it is amazing! If you are into collecting fragrance packaging then this is a must. 
Top notes: citrus bergamia, mandarine, ylang-ylang
Heart notes: osmanthus, peony, raspberry
Base notes: cedar wood, patchouli, woody elements, ambroxan

#4 Lumira Paradisium
This is an amazing scent made by a smaller Australian brand. This is a very unique, grown up, modern fresh scent and I am obsessed with it. It is supposed to evoke a Mediterranean feel and I completely get it. The only reason this isn't equal first with CK2 is because I don't find that this scent lasts on me all day.
Notes: luscious green fit intertwined with fresh bergamot

#5 Marc Jacobs Daisy
This is a classic fresh floral fragrance. It smells like a spring day and is a bright floral with not much sweetness to it. A beautiful fresh warm weather scent if you are a lover of white floral scents.
Top notes: strawberry, violet leaves, pink grapefruit
Heart notes: gardenia, jasmine, violet
Base notes: musk, vanilla, woody elements

Yesterday I mentioned my top products of 2016 so naturally today I am going to round up some bad/disappointing products of 2016.

I do want to note that a lot of these products aren't actually bad but were disappointing because they either didn't meet their hype or just weren't as good as I had hoped. I also know that a lot of people will love these products, but for me they missed the mark. Check out my video below explaining why I didn't like each product.


PRODUCTS MENTIONED (and links):
Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Palette (blog post/video review)
Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette (blog post/video review)
Ciate x Chloe Morello Pretty, Fun and Fearless Palette (blog post/video review)
Makeup Geek Eyeshadows

Jeffree Star Liquid Lipstick in Flamethrower (video review)
Lancome Juicy Shaker
Real Techniques Miracle Sculpting Sponge (blog post)
Rimmel Fresher Skin Foundation
L'Oreal Infallible Fixing Mist
Inglot Gel Liners

So those are the products that are either rubbish, or are just not as good as I had hoped. Do check out my video where I explain why I don't like each product. 

Also I would love to know what products were the worst/most disappointing for you in 2016!

Hey, long time no see! HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I have been taking a bit of a blogging break over Christmas and New Years. I would like to say it was to take a break and relax, but I originally intended for the time off work to be a great time to catch up on blogging... but then one of the videos on BEAUTY NEWS went viral. Surprisingly trawling through comments and keeping everything under control takes a lot of time and mental energy, so blogging just didn't happen. Also Hailey and I decided to run with the success and create a new series on the channel which took a lot of work. Sorry blog!

Aaaanyway, I thought I should start the year with my BEAST IN BEAUTY 2016 post. I decided to only include beauty products that were new to me in 2016... so some are products that have been around for years but I had never tried, and some are brand new to 2016. I haven't covered all beauty categories because a lot of products that I love are products that I have been using for years and years, and to prevent these posts from getting repetitive I have excluded them.

As I have included a lot of products, I thought it's best just to list the products and any reviews that I have done previously and also include my 2 part video at the end where you can see me explain why they products made the cut!

Christmas is nearly over, which means the next step is preparing for boxing day sales! One of the great value Christmas packs that I HIGHLY recommend checking out (and hasn't yet sold out) is the vaults by NYX.

NYX has brought out an advent calendar ($99), a NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Vault ($79) and the NYX Liquid Suede Vault ($79) and you can buy them from Priceline or Target. These are great value packs full priced, but they are starting to pop up on sale which makes them even more amazing value! I have seen these on sale for 40% off Target in the past week or so.

I have the Liquid Suede Vault and I am really impressed with the value. The pack contains 24 mini tubes of the Liquid Suedes and the top row are the permanent shades and the bottom row are unreleased in Australia/limited edition shades. These mini tubes contain 1.6ml of product (compared to the large permanent tubes that contain 4ml each) and that means you get a total of 38.4ml of product in the pack for $79. If you were to buy 38.4ml worth of product of the larger shades you would be paying $143.52... so the full priced vault is great value but even better value if you can pick it up on sale!

Untitled

You can see from the swatches that there is a really wide variety of shades from nudes and pinks to blues and greys. This range allows you to not only test all the shades in a really affordable way, but also have a sample of some really unique shades that you normally wouldn't buy in a full size tube.

I also love the formula of the Liquid Suedes and I have bought a few full size shades previously. They are a long wearing lipstick that settles down to a demi-matte finish, that isn't a completely transfer proof dry powdery matte but it gives a matte look. These are nicely pigmented and require only one layer to get an opaque finish and they wear a long time, with each shade wearing differently - some lasting almost all day. The only tip you need to know is they take a while to set and can feel a little sticky (and may transfer onto your teeth) in the first 5 min of wearing them.



I love this vault and if you want to try the Liquid Suede formula or you want to expand your liquid lipstick collection and try out some fun colours, then I definitely recommend tracking this down in your boxing day sales. If you prefer the Soft Matte Lip Cream formula then they also have a vault containing 36 minis for the same price.

I hope you have a happy and safe Christmas xoxo
