organic skincare: antipodes

I was away so couldn't get this post up during the Organic Week, but luckily I finally have time to share my thought on the two amazing products from Antipodes. Antipodes is an  Australian organic brand. I've had a chance to use Antipodes Honey Manuka Mask, it was such a great product! Need to re-purchase asap! 

Never expected that I'll be using a facial serum this early, I kept on thinking that their are only aimed at older women, my mistake. During summer my skin got really dehydrated, the Antipodes Hosanna H2O Intensive Skin-Plumping Serum is great at helping my skin to get back to normal. The applicator is really handy, the colour of the product isn't the best (browny), but once you apply it on the face it turns clear. My skin absorbs the product really fast! After using the serum I tend to apply my everyday cream. The serum is oil-free, that's a plus as you can use it in the morning. 

I personally love cleansing balms, as they don't dry out my skin. The Antipodes Grapeseed Butter Cleanser is a great to use as second cleanser. I wouldn't really say that it's amazing for getting rid of your mascara, but it will do the job with getting rid of foundation and other facial make-up. The cleanser contains soothing lavender and blue chamomile, which helps to calm sensitive skin as well as refresh and cleanse, while hibiscus bloom has gentle exfoliating action. It's very smooth, but it also contains exfoliating particles. I really love the texture! Great to use in the morning. This intensive cleanser is suited to most skin conditions, especially dry. 

Overall I would definitely say that you should give Antipodes a go, as all products I've seem to try they work so well with my skin. Can't wait to try more from the brand.

pay day pick - urban decay naked 3 palette


It's last Friday of the month, this means it's pay day! Drink wisely my lovelies. We all want to treat ourselves on pay day, why not, we worked so hard the entire month. This month I would definitely invest in one of the Urban Decay Naked palette, I've chosen the Naked 3 palette, purely because it's my all time favourite. I really like all of the eyeshadows. Naked 3 palette is more pink tone base, the eyeshadows will work with all of the eye colours and shapes. The packaging is really piratical if you travel, as nothing will break. Personally I am a big fan of Urban Decay eyeshadows, I think the pigmentation is just amazing! What are you planning to purchase after pay day?

current favourite lipsticks

I am obsessed with bold lips at the moments! Mostly reds and berry colors. Sadly I wasn't able to find my MAC in Ruby Woo lipstick,  I tend to wear it pretty much every weekend. I am a matte lip girl, I just like matte much more than gloss, as well as mattes tend to last longer on the lips. 

L'Oreal 304 Ruby Opera is as beautiful bold red, I wish it was more like a lip "varnish", sadly the formula doesn't last long on the lips, but the colour is just beautiful. Bright pinks are amazing, if you want a quick "going out face", MAC Lipstick in Candy Yum-Yum  is a very bright pink. I love it with bold eyes, the lipstick will make you look slightly dolled up, but I like that effect from time to time, it's a matte finish so it's long lasting. MAC Lipstick in Impassioned is a fuchsia pink, very safe lipstick to wear during the day. Dior Baume 558 Lili is amazing if you are starting out with red lipsticks, as it's more of a red balm than lipstick. You will have hint of red on your lips. Revlon ColorStay 005 Parisian Passion is my first berry "lipgloss", not sure how that works, but whenever I wear it, my eyes look more blue on the photos. You can either wear a thin or thick layer, depends how intense you want the colour to be. 

What are your current lipstick favourites?
