Week Latte #55

Week Latte

Hey friends! Short and sweet this week, as real life has certainly taken over this month. Enjoy the links xx

I really want to try these lippies from the new Ulta3 collection after reading Emma’s review.

I have quite a few Tower28 goodies in my collection now but haven’t got around to sharing a review – Floating in Dreams has you covered if you’re curious about the lippies.

Jaz has made a beautiful series using the Glaminatrix You Beauty palette – I really need to try their shadows!

These new lippie formulas from Bobbi Brown look heavenly.

I’m very excited to try this range for myself next month. I’ll be reviewing it in PR so stay tuned!

So many drugstore goodies in this video! I’m keen to try the Loreal Skin Paradise now!

This new launch from The Jojoba Co makes me so excited!

Both of these products are on my Wishlist so the comparison is very interesting!

Week Latte #52

Week Latte

This Week Latte post has been in the works since November… oops. Never mind, here we are with our first for 2021- woohoo!

I watched this Tik Tok and oh my gosh it struck a cord with me! The comments suggested to google ‘you don’t have to monetize your joy’ and it showed me two articles – this one from Life Hacker and this one from (now extinct) (Man) Repeller. This is exactly how I feel with my blog/Instagram. I have turned down paid opportunities and affiliate programs because I feel like the second I attach money to my blog -particularly as a RESULT- I will see it not as a hobby but as a stress. So I loved having my thoughts validated and put in much nicer terms than I could ever describe.

What it’s like being Instagram famous when no one knows your name.

Using secondhand shopping to justify excessive consumption is not sustainable.

The lost girls: ‘Chaotic and curious, women with ADHD all have missed red flags that haunt us.’

This year I’m realllllly trying to buy less makeup. This post was inspiring!

In saying that, most of my buying comes form seeing something pretty and wanting to own it. Instead, I’m trying to appreciate it’s prettiness without needing to own it. To do that, I’m making a wish list and the new Mellow Cosmetics quads are right on top! Interesting caption too!

Emma shared these Beauty Bay products which look incredible and they are SO cheap. Straight to my wishlist they go!

One of my new fave podcasts in Single Minded. This episode about the Budget Bachelorette is so amazing, and omg I am living for the private story updates by Em.

Absolutely in love with Britt’s eye look here. All my fave colours!

I have a post in drafts about why it’s so important to share ‘negative reviews’ – or why products didn’t work for you. Every one is different! No one can expect one product to work the exact same way for them as another person, there are so many variables! Which is why I LOVEDDDD Lily’s post about products she found disappointing in 2020.

Mco Beauty have launched a new foundation and concealer and i hate to say it but I love the sound of them. Although, they totally ripped off Tarte Shape Tape, my biggest gripe is the fact they think they can sell a foundation for $28 RRP at WOOLWORTHS????? Chill Mco, lol.

The gorgeous @beautycornerbyme has launched her new biz, @aya.australia – so stunning! Congrats girl!

Week Latte #51

ROLLY Mag, Week Latte

Happy Friday, friends.

These posts are a work-in-process over the month, but dang this one came up on me quickly. Life is hectic. I’m tired lol.

But instead of talking about that haha let me tell you that the past week and a half I’ve been so good in term so buying things. Okay, ‘so good’ is an exaggeration. But I’ve definitely been better than my frenzied spending spree at the start of the month.

In saying that…

I’m so keen for Black Friday sales!!!!!!!!

Enjoy the links x

You know how I was looking for the perfect light coverage tinted moisturiser/foundation?! Well…. I’ve found a product that’s in the running! The hyaluronic acid tinted moisturiser from @colourpopcosmetics ☺️. . Here are my thoughts -> . So since my skin is looking pretty fine thanks to Roaccutane 🙌🏻, I’ve been on the hunt for a tinted moisturiser that gives me light/sheer coverage that lets my skin shine through. So my first impressions when trying it – it’s very sheer, don’t bother trying to cover blemishes. Although I was able to build it up a bit under my eyes for a bit of concealing. I used a sponge when applying (I can’t buff into my skin using a brush atm due to how sensitive my skin is.) after applying, which was a breeze, I loved how natural and glowy it looked on my skin! I only set with powder under my eyes, to keep the glow going 🙌🏻. In terms of wear, I wore it for about 8 hours and it held up great! Definitely impressed! My skin also never felt dry throughout the day which I was super impressed by. I’ll be continuing to test it out for the time being, and get back to you guys with a full review soon ☺️👍. . . . . Have you tried this tinted moisturiser? And what’s your favourite tinted moisturiser/ light coverage foundation? I’d love to know! ☺️😘 . . . . . . . . . . . . #colourpop #colourpopcosmetics #beauty #crueltyfreebeauty #hyaluronicacid #makeup #crueltyfreemakeup #makeuplooks #skincare #tintedmoisturizer

Jayde did a fabulous, in depth review on Function of Beauty which was so interesting. I have the hair serum and mask on my wishlist, but think I could happily pass on the shampoo and conditioner (despite them being so cute).

I discovered this beautiful blog, which did a really fab review on Rare Beauty. I pray this comes to Australia!

View this post on Instagram

🌸 RARE BEAUTY FIRST IMPRESSIONS REVIEW 🌸 Today was the first time wearing it so you're getting my first impression after an all day wear test. For full day updates, head to my stories. Here's the important stuff you need to know: ⭐ The products are designed to be inclusive to people with mobility issues. The cap design makes for easy opening. I absolutely love this! ⭐ The price point is a nice middle ground for a Sephora brand. Not quite high-end pricing, not quite drugstore pricing. Very affordable for what you're getting. ⭐ Products themselves are vegan and cruelty free. They apply seamlessly and easily with minimal effort making for a really quick application. ⭐ The color selection is huge and very inclusive so you're guaranteed to find the right shades for you ⭐ After 9 hours of wear there was still a decent amount of coverage and minimal fading of the products. My skin was oily, very oily lol but it didn't look bad. Some blotting and a little bit of powder and you'd be good to go for another couple hours, at least! ⭐ All of the products felt completely weightless on the skin and looked identical to natural skin. All the benefits of full coverage makeup, with zero of the uncomfortable feeling. Needless to say, this line is a huge win for me. I'll be trialing out these products for the rest of the week to find the best application techniques in a way to keep the oils controlled for a little longer. This got a solid 🌟🌟🌟🌟 stars for me today, and I know with the right primer it'll be five!

Emma created this fabulous resource for keeping a Makeup Inventory. I started one in January, but like any resolutions, failed to stick with it. Part of me doesn’t want to because the amount of products I have makes me feel a bit sick lol.

This discourse about being brave is so interesting – I read something similar a few years ago and I wish I could remember it correctly. But basically, wearing a bikini to the beach isn’t being brave… it’s none of your business. Nurses and doctors and teachers are brave.

This story is INCREDIBLE! Gave me chills. ‘I fell five storeys from a New York rooftop and survived.’ This is not easy to read. I had to take a break before I finished it. It’s unimaginable. If you needed a reminder that life is precious, this is it.

Why Your Morning Routine Isn’t Working… I am obsessed with hearing other people’s morning routines, one of my niche interests lol. This video was really unique, particularly the tip to theme your routine each day. I definitely want to implement this!

@thecaryledit has reviewed the newest SPF to my collection – and my first ever physical sunscreen- Medik8 Physical Sunscreen!

I stumbled across this post on Pinterest and it’s got some great, practical tips for helping you do a spending ban. I like the phrase ‘project 10 pan.’ We’ve hear of project pan before, right? Hitting pan on a product… I tried this and failed for many reasons but basically it left me feeling overwhelmed. But I like this idea of using a product 10 times before you buy another product in the same category etc. Sounds achievable!

What Happened to Man Repeller? Holy moly, the icon is no longer. It was a rocky road to the end.

Matilda was inspired by this post to try the Ohii Lip Smudge in the shade ‘scorpio’ and boy oh boy, it FLEW to the top of my wish list. Divine!

Week Latte #50

ROLLY Mag, Week Latte

Happy 50th Week Latte!

This is a milestone for me, I can’t believe it honestly! And to think, that many of these posts were published in consecutive weeks – pat on the back to past me.

Now they are primarily monthly occurrences, lol so the name ‘week’ latte doesn’t quite means the same but it’s the same vibe, no?

MCo Beauty have launched new brushes that were exclusive to Oz Hair and Beauty at the start of th emonth when I started this post, but as I edit it, it’s actually in store at Woolies, woo! They look very luxe for MCo, and the price tag reflects that. Still affordable, but I’m still keen to get them half price, ya know? They look so fluffy, I’m very tempted to try!

September was an exciting month in the publishing world, with the wonderful women behind @shamelesspodcast and @seize_the_yay all releasing books! So exciting, I had ‘The Space Between’ on preorder, but am yet to pick up Seize the Yay.

The Sephora 15-20% off sale happened at the start of the month, which took me by surprise. I wasn’t emotionally or financially prepared (in my head, I was prepping for the next one to be Black Friday) so I demonstrated great levels of self control and skipped this sale. However, Hannah created a great list of recommended products I’ll certainly refer to next time.

Emma shared this post and so much yes. Lockdown in Victoria was getting the best of me, particularly because I was seeing people in other states doing boomerangs with rosé as if life was normal and was shocked. I actually thought ‘are they posting a memory?’ because that is so far from the reality in Melbourne. And you really can’t understand it unless you lived through it.

I adored Ash Owens’ aesthetic, and have just started reading her blog (late to the party!) This post was beautiful, ‘My Daily Wellness Routine.’

Erika wrote about how she plans to change her life post-quarantine. Such an interesting read, because I’m sure we’ve all learnt something about either ourselves or our way of life thanks to lockdown. I want to write a similar reflective post on this myself.

This episode of Shameless spoke about how friendships are changing during the pandemic. So interesting, and something I had felt but hadn’t considered the long-term effect of. They referenced this article from Man Repeller.

How to build a timeless wardrobe– adding everything to my shopping list!

This blog is a new discovery of mine, love the aesthetic.

Beauty influencers share the products they’ve repurchased!

I am honestly really apprehensive about lockdown being over. I don’t think I remember how to socialise! This post was a good read for making the most of weekends (post lockdown!)

Who else has been too harsh on themselves this year? It’s okay if productivity looks different in this season.

View this post on Instagram

It’s okay if “productivity” looks different in this season. Small progress is still progress. You are not weak for needing rest. I’m writing this note to the one who feels a little overwhelmed right now. You feel the weight of what you *should* be doing, this very second. You keep thinking about what you *could* have done a year ago to have made this season better. I just hope you know it is okay if today didn’t start like yesterday. It is okay if this week felt different than last week. There will be highs and lows here, moments of courage, moments of fear, and through it all you will be free to trust: you do not have to perform or be productive to be worthy of love. I hope you make progress on your projects and dream a new dream or two, but more than that, I hope you are able to see how love has continued to find you, and you still have the chance to give love, even though you feel like you’re not doing enough. I hope you know your post doesn’t have to go viral and your words don’t have to reach everyone before you know what matters is this: you took time to show up with courage, gratitude, and love. Because a year from now, you won’t remember everything you put on your checklist. You won’t remember how every single second was spent and every moment you felt the most productive. But you will remember how you felt when you felt loved and seen. You will remember those people you got to show love to, even when it was on the other side of a screen. You will remember that even though you had moments of restlessness, worry, and fear, it took courage, strength, love, and grace to make it another year. You will realize that more than you want to be known for your accomplishments, you want to be known for the way you love. And how, when you choose to love, your love becomes reflected in the life you live, and the work you do. II The second part of this was inspired by today’s theme of the #MakeThingsApril challenge: “a year from now.” I wrote the first part yesterday. It’s been taking me longer to write these days, and I am learning to see: that’s okay. I also didn’t make all the art I wanted to make. That’s okay, too. ♥️

@minniemakeupreviews / @colouredbymel / @mymakeupandi / @rubythomasbeauty

Which beauty products are worth a splurge? @brittanybeautybts tells us where we should save!

I went through my inbox and realised I had a few unopened Newsletter emails from @theannaedit. Within them, I found this article: ‘How to deal with Zoom fatigue’ Especially relevant because at the time of writing Melbourne is lockdown 2.0).

@kate.lavie has moved into her and holy moly it is divine (of course!)

This interview with Emma Gannon was fabulous! I need to get back into her podcast!

I had a big read of Fashion Journal and enjoyed these:
How I Got Here: The Design Files’ Managing Editor on how she landed her dream gig

I asked a couples therapist how to break up with a friend

Seven writers and editors on where to next if you’re in magazine mourning *sob*

Wendy gave a review on Em Cosmetics – with some stunning imagery- which has @daisy_chain_daydreams and I swooning! Thinking of placing an order once a few things are back in stock!

I’ve found that listening to podcasts is really motivating for me when running, as opposed to listening to music. Today I listed to Jameela Jamil on Shameless and it was amazing. AH-MAZING! Everyone must listen to it. So many amazing takeaways. Shameless is wonderful anyways, so joining forces with Jameela was just so empowering.

Sand and Sky launched their new Tasmanian Spring Water range this week, which I’ve been trialling for about a month. See the range here, and my review here. I also have a highlight on my IG that has links to other creators who have shared their reviews too!

ROLLY Mag, Week Latte

Feeling inspired by these luxe makeup and gold jewels! @bojana.inaesthetics / @onabeautybender / @makeup_by_makena / @lovefredaus

Pretty much adding all of these beauty products to my cart.

On a very serious note, a message for anyone thinking of having a baby (now or in the future.)

Love this concept of ‘joy triggers’.

A weekly beauty schedule like this is so practical for someone who is forgetful and/or lazy like me haha! I plan on printing it out so I remember. I particularly need encouragement to wash my brushes oops haha.

@the.girl.who.loves.cosmetics is laughing a free 5 Day Facebook Challenge which sounds fabulous! Join here!

Stretches to destress from too much time at your desk.

Jamie Paige’s video challenge ‘My Entire Makeup Collection If I Wasn’t A Beauty Guru’ was sooooo fun to watch. I’m excited to see a drugstore version of this, and for other beuaty bloggers to take on the challenge!

I also love Jamie’s calming makeup series.

Still on the theme of beauty Youtubers, Allie Glines ‘How to Look Expensive With Drugstore Makeup’ spoke to my soul! Drugstore has my heart, and like Allie said she feels too, I’m seriously overwhelmed by the beauty industry right now. I can’t keep up with launches and i feel like I’m drowning in my own collection. ‘When it’s on your face, no one knows how expensive it is.’ AMEN!

In the same breath, Priceline recently had their half price cosmetics sale… here are some of my favourite blogger’s hauls!

@katiecosmopolitan wins this haul, she found the best Makeup revolution palette!!!

@bottledbeautyblog picked up this gorg marble palette, definitely on my wishlist.

@i_shall_shop picked up her fave lip tint and lip oil.

@jesscbeautylover did sooooo well. Also, yes I regret not getting this palette.

@beautystyleloveau bought the Luma lip and cheek tint based on mine and Kim’s recommendation. Enjoy!

@itsjustkrystle bought my fave Essence lipstick, that I always forget to mention. guys, it’s divine!!!

Ok, I could go on and on but basically I loved living vicariously through these hauls haha!

‘5 Tips to Help Stop Impulse Shopping’– because we all know that ya girl needs HELP! These tips were actually practical which was comforting.

And to finish off, I just wanted to share with you my new series – Aussie Blogger Beauty Swap! It launched this week in collaboration with Emmie’s Beauty Life, read her blog post here and my blog post here! It was so fun and you guys all enjoyed it too which I’m so glad about.

What’s been your fave thing from the internet this week?

Week Latte #46

ROLLY Mag, Week Latte

The most recent Week Latte was at the start of May and now this one is at the end. Idk, you guys. Time isn’t real.

I resisted the urge to share exclusively purple eyeshadow looks (which makes up most of my saved posts, no shame) so here are some of my other recent IG faves x

@showmetheglow / @littlelistofmine / @georgieandginger.co / @othersummers

Go To shared some fun beauty articles on their stories, my faves were:

15 A-Beauty Brands / How A Celeb Flight Attendant Gets Good Skin / Unexpected Beauty Products Selling Out

Obsessed with the blog ‘Stolen Inspiration’, particularly enjoying the IG template from this post!

Quarantine Instagram Story Template

Hillary’s Duff $987 (US) Quarantine Makeup includes my fave Colourpop lip tints!

Reality TV and beauty are two of my favourite things, so you already know that I am VIBING this post on Into The Gloss; The Beauty Products I’m Bringing With Me To Reality TV!

Anna’s ‘Working From Home Beauty Edit’ was a fun read- but I can’t relate. Early on in iso I was doing my makeup almost more than I did IRL. But over two months into iso, I haven’t been wearing makeup for my uni zoom calls. Soz guys.

I’m not one for maths, but this pie chart is a wardrobe hack I can get on board with!

Wardrobe hacks

I saw this post on Pinterest and it really resonated with me – and although the post was written a year ago, I think it’s particularly relevant to me (at least) right now in a world of you-know-what.

Arna uploaded this incredible calling GRWM. I wanted to close my eyes to enjoy the music, but to keep them open to see the makeup haha. I then promptly fell down the rabbit hole of makeup ASMR.

If you’re struggling for motivation for studying online, I found this article to be *actually* helpful – it’s not your stereotypical tips which I appreciated.

Also found this bullet journal website very inspiring.

Week Latte #45

ROLLY Mag

Happy Saturday everyone!

This blog post has been in the making for weeks, but I’ve never quite got around to finishing it until today.

Often, I feel suffocated by choice and it paralyses needs from making any decision or doing anything.

But lately that has been worse than ever thanks to the whole self isolation situation.

I am ok, I promise, just struggling a bit.

I wanted to let you know that, in case you feel the same. You are not alone.

But! I don’t want it to distract from all the awesome content I’ve got for you. Enjoy the links and be sure to share some of yo ur absolute posts with me in the comments. Xx

I am constantly making my Glossier wishlist for when I eventually visit in store *a girl can dream* – read 8 bloggers fave products.

Kate’s Friday night rituals.

I recently discovered Ash Owens on Instagram – but oh my gosh her blog is beautiful! Lots of WFH inspo on ther eta the moment… some of my faves:

35 Easy Lunch Ideas / A Guide For Lockdown Boredom / How to be Productive When Working From Home

Why I Faked My Own Diary Entries – you all know I’m a fan of a thought piece, but this by Julia at It’s All Fluff HIT ME GOOD! Isn’t it funny how we are afraid to be true to ourselves, and how clever the brain is to be able to LIE to ourselves? Deep thought, soz.

Really love the sound of this BB cream s/o @roxanepapa

So far, I have made two Cotton On orders in iso. Oops. I really want this jumper Romy has styled but they’re out of my size… noooo!

I was super lucky to win a $25 Mecca voucher from @the.girl.who.loves.cosmetics and @beautyspice.glitter – I used it to buy a few of the new Zoom stick eyeshadow shades.

As you guys know, I’m obsessed with Tik Tok right now. @mikzazon creates epic, empowering content – such a babe!

Zo launched her website recently – so excited to see more content from her.

Emma from The Broke Generation shared this post last week – Your Feelings Are Valid. The conversation surrounding this post was really interesting, and something Emma said she was a bit scared and hesitant to share. But the comments were resounding in support, and I really liked these ones in particular.

francescooknz: This is so very true. I think gratitude can help stop us spiralling, but it’s the second step, not the first. The first step is recognising your feelings, and treating them as valid. This is a tough time, and burying how we feel about it will only make it worse!

the_conscious_budget_mum: I think this is sooo normal. I’ve been feeling the same, but less eloquent 😳

lauraen.right: This is very valid, thanks for sharing. Many in the disabled/chronically ill community are feeling similar feelings of toxic positivity, because ideas such as, “we’re all in this together,” and, “this too shall pass,” are hurtful, because (a) no, you at least have an able body, and (b) it doesn’t end for everyone.

If you need some at home workout inspo, there are plenty of options here. I am pretty much proud of myself for going for one dog walk a day, I’m very rarely doing a workout. I used to go to the gym 5-7 days a week and I miss it os much but I just cannot motivate myself at home.

You know how much I’m loving lilac, but this has been the most luxe lilac eye look I have seen!

I discovered this blog, and I’m really enjoying reading her quarantine diaries- it’s soo interesting to see how people are spending their time and feeling.

All of the Savey products from You Beauty have been collated here and all I can say is: let the shopping begin (lol, begin? Continue may be more apt haha!)

@the.girl.who.loves.cosmetics has created this fab AND free skincare resource, you can download it here!

Lots of love for the Andalou face mask shared by Mamamia here- I’m personally a big fan and I know @breeze_beauty_loves is too! Andalou is now available at Chemist Warehouse as well as Priceline!

So much amazing content in my feed right now!

Week Latte #44

ROLLY Mag, Week Latte

Hey guys, happy long weekend!

Let’s look at the positives- there are HEAPS of sales happening online right now. I have the details to how you can save on Ever Sundays, Luxey Cup and more below… but first! The non-sale related good stuff 🙂

“What if you just tried to live for yourself for once?” Does that proposition fill you with absolute fear? Because it kind of makes me want to run away very fast. Why though??? A fab though piece by Leandra.

As always, a really beautiful visual post by Kate- and yummy recipes! I’m sure you could substitute some ingredients to make it non-alcoholic too!

Chriselle Lim, aka our Rich Mom, shared some tips for success on Tik Tok! And she’s amazing!!

No bake cookies – another Tik Tok gem… how delish and easy!! (Edit: tried these and failed miserably. Not sure if it was me or the recipe lol.)

Arna did an international beauty swap which I think is such a fun idea! Watch her video here. Definitely putting these metallic, cream Australis eyeshadows on my wishlist now!

Isolation skin is a REAL thing, you guys! It is certainly not just you. I had a hormonal breakout – or so I thought- around my chin and jaw during my first few days of isolation, but it has seriously stuck around… and as Amy wrote for Mamamia, a lot of us feel the same way!

How cuuuuuute is this lilac scarf from Feather & Noise!? It’s on my winter wardrobe wishlist!

I had a sample of this Mecca Cosmetica Weekend Skin Tint that I finally got around to trying. I enjoyed it, very light coverage but a little something, ya know. $40 is a bit much for this kinda of product, in my opinion, but I will probably buy it at some point lol.

Victoria posted this Lockdown Diary, inspired by this series, and I really enjoyed reading it. It certainly makes us feel less alone to know that literally everyone is dealing with this right now.

Daisy and I were talking this week, about how we feel pressure to be doing more whilst in isolation. But we both came to the conclusion that it’s okay if we don’t write a novel, learn a language and bake (not burn) a banana bread or five… we’re in a global pandemic!! Give yourself a break! Gabrielle Tozer shared this thought piece; Why You Should Ignore All That Coronavirus-Inspired Productivity Pressure.

I can only dream of looking this chic in isolation. Tina shared some inspo too! In reality, I’m wearing my Year 12 rugby jumper, active wear / trackies and a full afce of makeup because yolo.

Favourite Easter Weekend Sales

15% off Feather and Noise (everything but sale, applied automatically at checkout)

Up to 30% off Ryder Wear (applied automatically at checkout)

15% off Luxey Cup and a free 3x pack straws and straw cleaner brush with the code QUEEN (thanks to @kmart_queen)

20% off and free shipping at Basics By B (applied automatically at checkout)

20% off EverSundays with the code Easter20.

15% off full price styles (SWEET15) and up to 30% off sale at Sans Beast.

There are so many sales happening right now, I just couldn’t fit them all. I’ve shared a few more on my stories too! xx

Week Latte #43

ROLLY Mag, Week Latte

Oh my friends, I am sorry it has been a hot minute. The Week Latte is not dead! Impromptu hiatus, but it’s backkkkkkk.

Enjoy the links!

Sand & Sky have launched a brand new body product – Smoothing body Sand! I was very lucky to attend the launch of this product and met the S&S team. I thin k that has definitely made my love the brand more- having known the thought process behind the new product. Also, seriously fangirling because my face and my review of the product features on the website- EKKK!

Daisy shared this brand with me and oh em geeeeeeee I’ve been lusting over this design. She cuuuuuute!

Speaking of Daisy, she shared this amazing post about Aussie beauty babes and it made me feel all warm and fuzzy!!

Saturday spirals are the new Sunday scaries– relate? Me too!

I did a mass-binge watch of Anna’s videos and particularly enjoyed how she used one eyeshadow palette for a week and made so many creative looks. 

Although this was shared in the context of parenting, I really appreciated this perspective on ‘choice’. 

Similarly, I’ve been sick this week and took a day off work. I felt soooooo guilty. And since starting uni, in any pockets of free time, I’ve felt guilty for not studying or working etc. This is a great reminder. 

These Elf lippies look divine! 

OMG! So much Bachie news since I last spoke to you guys on the blog… I am a keen bean! 

Loved Wendy’s lazy day makeup – keen to try these two products! 

Mco Beauty is currently half price at Woolies – I picked up these two lip and cheek tints after being #influenced by @beauteiya !! 

How epic is Amy’s Bybi Beauty collection! Love the packaging of this brand too. 

Innisfree have a new Cherry Blossom collection which is absolutely stunning – I went in store to buy the finishing powder, I just love the packaging agh!! Shanice has captured it so well!
