      APSU Funaya Review

      Back in February I reviewed a few products from APSU’s Varanasi range (here), inspired by the golden goddess Annapurna, Queen of Varanasi. I personally loved that range because I looove the scent and the gold-leaf-infused products. APSU was kind enough to send me more of their products, but now from their Funaya range, influenced by the serene and sacred Japanese communal bathing ritual that is Onsen.

      In general, the scent of the products in this range have a stronger herbal scent than the Varanasi range, but it’s certainly very relaxing. The first word that comes to my mind when I smell the range is “zen”.

      Rimmel The Only 1 Matte Lipstick Review & Swatches

      Rimmel The Only 1 Matte Lipstick

      Rimmel has jumped on the matte lipstick bandwagon and recently released The Only 1 Matte lipstick range, featuring nine matte lip colors formulated with a non-drying formula that is actually comfortable to wear.

      Rimmel claims the lipstick to be so comfortable and moisturising “it glides on like a dream, without dragging or skipping” with a luscious lightweight sensation.

      Do these live up to their claims?

      Check out my Rimmel The Only 1 Matte lipstick review and swatches below!

      L’Oreal Infallible Sexy Balms Swatches

      I just received these the other day in the cutest jar packaging filled with pink and red jelly beans, and I had so much fun digging through the jelly beans to find all 12 shades of the L’Oreal Paris Infallible Sexy Balms! These are described to be “enriched with oisturizing gel balm for 12 hours of moisture with a weightless velvety texture, and the most vibrant pigments for a true kick of color.”

      Available in 12 shades, ranging from sheer to bold, these are available in selected supermarkets, chemists and variety stores for AU$14.95.

      I obviously haven’t had time to properly trial these, but I just wanted to show you all quick swatches of all the shades. Check them out below!

      Dermalogica Face Fit Review

      Dermalogica Face Fit

      I just submitted my final dissertation for my Master of Arts degree last week, and I literally had zero hours of sleep two days before submission. So getting a Dermalogica Face Fit was exactly what I needed.

      The Dermalogica Face Fit is an express facial treatment, done in 10 minutes, for a quick pick-me-up to boost skin radiance and hydration. The 10-minute treatment costs only $15 and is fully redeemable on product purchases!

      There are a variety of treatments you can choose from, including: Dewy Skin, Perfectly Primed, Power Peel, Rapid Hydration Booster, Brilliant Eyes and Rapid Radiance.

      I’ve had two of these treatments done, one for the face and one for the skin. Here’s how it went.
