LookFantastic Beauty Box - February 2015

My February LookFantastic Beauty Box came a lot faster than the January box, which is great!

For a one-box purchase of £15, you will get 6 products. It works out to be about AUD$30 for the box, or $5 per product. Although it is quite expensive compared to some of the Australian beauty boxes on the market (e.g. Bellabox, Lust Have It), it is nice to receive something other than ModelCo or other brands that have been flogged so much on the Australian beauty box market. Furthermore, no additional charges for shipping also sweetens the deal.

Besides the one off box purchase, there are plans available that can save you money in the long run - 3 month plans (£40, save £5), 6 month plans (£75, save £15) and 12 month plans(£135, save £45).

Review: Dior Diorskin Star Foundation

Yikes! It's been over a week since my last post! Time seemed to have escaped me. I have been meaning to write this review of Dior Diorskin Star Fluid Foundation ("Dior Star") for quite a while now but keep forgetting to take before and after pictures, as I'm always in a rush to put on my face and get ready for work.

Review: Lush - January Releases

This review of Lush January's new releases is a late one. If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you may have seen my post where I was disappointed to have received a product (Breath of Fresh Air Toner) from Lush's boxing day sale with exactly 6 months expiry on the date that I received my parcel, considering it was made 8 months ago. I was disappointed that nowhere on the Lush website stated that the products sold in the sale had such a short shelf life date (in comparison to the total shelf life). I did call Lush, and I wasn't impressed with the lady on the other line, as she kept contradicting herself - I asked her what a reasonable shelf life was for a product, and she said products are sold within 6 months of being made. She also acknowledged that the toner I received did was sold 8 months after it was made, but that was why it is in the sale. I realised that we were just going around in circles, and both her and myself were getting too frustrated so I ended the call there, took it up on Instagram and Facebook and wanted to see if I was being unreasonable. I was relieved to learn that I'm not the only one who was unaware of the short expiries on Lush sale items.

LookFantastic Beauty Box - January 2015

If you haven't already heard, Look Fantastic has a monthly box! It has been running for quite a few months now, and I've only just decided to jump on the bandwagon and purchase one after seeing some pretty amazing boxes.

Haul: Mecca Cosmetica & Lush

As mentioned in my Sephora haul post (read here), I did a tiny haul at Mecca Cosmetica and Lush whilst I was with the girls in the city a couple of weeks ago. Yes, I'm FINALLY getting my tush into gear and writing about this. Also, I wasn't kidding when I said tiny haul. I have been quite broke after  spending bucket loads of money on makeup and clothes I don't need over the past few months, and the husband was giving THE look after realizing how far behind I was at repaying for my purchases. So I didn't have much to spend and just picked up the bare essentials.
