iHerb Beauty Haul!

Hi! How are you guys doing today? I hope you are well :)

I decided to make a purchase off iHerb last week because I received a voucher to use and I thought why not take advantage of it since I wanted a few items already. 

I have purchased from them in the past, although it was over a year ago. I have had no issues with iHerb whatsoever. They are a fantastic company! With great prices which are fairly reasonable considering I live in Australia and everything is so expensive. 

Recently they started showing products in AU pricing. Which is great! Also the shipping is really affordable. It's only around $4 for standard international shipping and $8 for express. 

You can purchase make-up, brushes, skincare, hair care, vitamins etc. They sell a variety of products, for a good price. 

Now onto the haul! I purchased quite a few brushes since they retail for over double the amount here in Australia.

May Favourites

Hey it's that time of the month for favourites! I thought since I haven't done a favourites post, lets do on this month. I can't believe it's already May! Where has this year gone? I swear... it's almost halfway through the year and then by the time you know it, it will be Christmas again!

Our weekend away in Sydney!

My boyfriend and I of almost 2 and half years stayed in Sydney city the weekend of 13th April - 15th April. It was his early birthday present and pretty much just an excuse for a getaway.

We stayed at Mantra on Kent and it was a very good hotel. The staff were lovely and the hotel room was better than expected. We didn't want to spend over $200 a night for accommodation, so instead we comprised and said that we'd stay at a 4 star hotel and spend more money on food and shopping.

On Sunday I forgot to take photos of what I ate. But we had Yum Cha at East Ocean Restaurant in China Town. It was very nice. I loved the food there.

Monday morning for breakfast we walked to a place called Project 8 Cafe near Broadway. I ordered a pot of English Breakfast tea and it was only $4 and we got about 4 cups out of it? What a bargain! I also got a ham and cheese croissant and a brownie. It was such a nice looking cafe. The food was lovely as well.

April Empties

Hey guys, yay it's time for monthly empties! I didn't expect to have many products this month because I've already thrown out heaps without the intention of doing an empties post. My apologies, I'll make up for it next month.

This month I had hair care, make up and skin care. But after I gathered all the products together I noticed I had more skin products more than anything. Perhaps it's because I bought them all at the same time.

Review & Swatches - NYX Butter Gloss and NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil

Hey everyone! This post is dedicated to NYX products. I will be doing both a review and swatches for each product.

The NYX Butter Gloss

In my opinion the NYX Butter Gloss is the best lip gloss in the market. Not only for the quality but also for the affordability! It retails in Australian Targets for $9.99 but you can buy them online for only $5 if you buy in bulk.

When applied they go on glossy and evenly. It comes with your standard, wand to apply the gloss. They smell like vanilla sort lollies. I don't know how to describe it but it makes it want to eat it! They have a very pleasant smell if you ask me.
