Going to kick things off on here with a simple and sweet post, just a few featured cosmetic items I am lusting over right now.
I am in no way affiliated with any of these companies, and am not receiving any compensation for this post (unless any of my friends or family read this and decide to buy me something… kidding!). 😉
Decisive By LUSH
This is ‘Decisive’ by Lush (who have great ethics and lovely stores to shop in!), a lip colour/blush. I love the bold redness of this colour, although the unusual bottle/brush application looks harder to use than a regular lipstick.
While we’re on the topic of LUSH, I think this must be the most divine smelling product on Earth:
Soft Coeur Massage Bar from LUSH
If the idea of lying quiet and still for a massage is as unappealing to you as it is to me, the good news is you can use it on yourself as a moisturizing body bar too, so no need to keep calm and smell the roses, if that’s not you.
New Zealand’s own indie brand BANG Cosmetics have just released a to die for collection of new lip colours – the hard part is just choosing one!
New Lipsticks by BANG Cosmetics
I love them all! You can purchase them through Etsy for $18 NZ each.
I didn’t think I believed in the concept of ‘having too many nailpolishes’, but I have to say I’m getting pretty damn close. So although I’m not planning to buy any new nail polishes any time soon, I have to confess I often go on Candy Girl, and ogle their range of polishes as if they were Jax Teller shirtless. They are one of the few places here that stock ‘Picture Polish‘, as well as offering genuine OPI, Zoya, and other quality brands at good prices.
Gracie Lou have now brought ‘SweetPea and Fay’ to New Zealand – thank you! Currently on special for less than $10 NZ a tube, which is a total bargain. I’m quite intrigued by their colours, in particular the black shade, Ominous, and Musidora, pictured below.
Musidora by SweetPea and Fay, available from GracieLou
AND – how freaking-fucking-gorgeous is Dolly Potion, by Wild Candy, also available from Gracie Lou?
Dolly Potion lipstick by Wild Candy
I LOVE this company – they are NZ based (products manufactured in the US), paraben free and cruelty-free. Go give them lots of love!
I’m also loving the look of the new household cleaning products from Sorbet (who make amazing solid shampoos, and other bath and body goodies ). Check out the aptly-named Bog Bombs and the Flash! Solid Laundry Bar, both priced cheap enough to try out, at under $10 NZ each. I’m holding off on buying them this month, as am thinking of buying the promotional pack from Ecostore this month (get in quick, closes on the 30th June) – $54 worth of amazing product for just $25, and free delivery. I LOVE Ecostore (although I still don’t enjoy cleaning, haha).
And the fabulous artisan perfume makers at Wild Hybrid have free shipping for June (not much of the month left, so don’t spend too long deciding what you want!) Coupon code: JUNESHIP. The ‘5 samples for $12’ packs are highly recommended as a good way to try a few different scents. My personal favourite is “Purple Cream”. I am also excited to hear about new Spring Limited Editions coming out in July.
Feel free to get in touch if you have any products you think I should feature or know about !
