The Body Shop Geisha Doll Lip and Cheek Stain That Is Cute As A Button

The Body Shop Geisha Doll Lip and Cheek Stain

Let’s get straight to the point because I’m not about to dilly dally with an introduction to today’s post when all I just want to say is: HOW CUTE IS THIS?!

The Body Shop’s Lip and Cheek Stain has been around for many years. While Benefit’s Benetint made lip and cheek stains even more popular, The Body Shop’s Lip and Cheek Stain has been around even before the Benetint. The original Lip and Cheek Stain looks like this.

Bloggie Wednesday: Ask Me Anything!

Bloggie Wednesday - Ask Me Anything!

Happy hump day, my beautiful chickadees!

Welcome to the last segment of Bloggie Wednesdays for 2014! It’s been such a tremendous year for the Bloggie Wednesdays series and I’m mighty chuffed that so many of you are still loving it since I started it in 2011.

I’ve been wondering on what I should write about for my final BW post of the year. I had tutorials and some pretty heavy info in mind but decided nah, it’s the holiday season, let’s keep it light and festive by doing an Ask Me Anything! I’ll leave the heavy stuff for 2015, what say you? ;)

This Estee Lauder Re-Nutriv Ultra Radiance Lifting Creme Makeup Should Have Gone To Mum!

Estee Lauder Re-Nutriv Ultra Radiance Lifting Creme Makeup

Re-Nutriv is like the mac daddy of ranges under the Estee Lauder brand (not the umbrella brand; just Estee Lauder as its own cosmetics brand). It’s targeted towards mature skin and provides rich, intense hydration and “lift” for the skin. My mother has used a number of Re-Nutriv products and she’s quite a fan.

Even though I’m not their target market in terms of skincare (touch wood not yet!), I was quite keen to check out their foundations instead. One of them was the Re-Nutriv Ultra Radiance Lifting Creme Makeup. I was half expecting this foundation to be quite thick and rich on the skin but I’m surprised to find that it’s actually pretty light. I heard on the grapevine that this is a reformulation of the original Re-Nutriv which was actually a lot thicker and creamier. For selfish reasons, I’m happy for the texture of the reformulated foundation as I find that it suits my skin type a lot better. On the other hand, I’m not supposed to be the range’s target users so I reckon a slightly richer formula would suit more mature skin types.

Aiding Dehydrated and Sensitive Skin with Bioderma’s Hydrabio

Bioderma Hydrabio Exfoliating Cream, Hydrabio H2O and Hydrabio Light Cream

I first heard of the Hydrabio range last year when popular makeup artist Lisa Eldridge posted a picture of her Parisian pharmacy shopping haul on Instagram that contained a lot of Hydrabio products, especially the micellar water. As usual, it took a while for the range to finally be available in Australia and thankfully, it now is.

A couple of months ago, I was given the opportunity to try out skincare products from the Hydrabio range. I was pretty selective in the items I’d like to give a go and I decided on the Exfoliating Cream, the micellar water and the Light Cream. The Hydrabio range also contains an Intense Moisturising Serum, a Moisturising Toning Lotion and a rich moisturising cream.
