My AM Skincare Routine

1 comment
Hey lovelies,

I thought it might be a good time to share my skincare routine - if you know me personally, you'll know that I am ALL ABOUT skincare. I have a multi-step routine using both Asian and Western products, and I'd love to share this with you and answer any questions. First, I'll start with my AM routine. My morning routine focuses on making sure that my skin is hydrated and smooth, and ready for makeup if I'm wearing any that day.

Are they Dupes: MAC 217 vs. Zoeva 227 vs. Hakuhodo J5523

Hi lovelies!

So, since I began wearing more eye makeup, I decided it was time to focus on getting some high quality tools for the job. I realised I was lacking a blending brush, and grabbed a couple to compare and review. I'd heard that these brushes were all dupes for each other, but I wanted to see for myself.
(Also I did a bit of a binge shop in January and that's why I have all of them!)

How I Dry My Makeup Brushes: Brush Tree Review

3 comments
Hi lovely readers,

It should be no surprise to you that I've become more and more interested in makeup in addition to nail polish. Accordingly, my brush collection has grown a LOT, and I recently decided that the old method of hanging my brushes to dry on a clothes hanger with some hair ties just wasn't cutting it anymore.

So, I bought a brush tree! Benjabelle is a well-known brush tree manufacturer, but at NZ$31.95+++ for a single brush tree, I just couldn't buy them when I knew there had to be a cheaper alternative on eBay. And I found one - a NZ$15 option, straight from eBay.
