Mini Haul

So I went grocery shopping with my boyfriend yesterday and couldn't resist picking up a few beauty products on sale! I tried to control my urges and ended up with Schwarzkopf Ultimate Colour Foam and 2 Covergirl Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss.

Schwarzkopf Ultimate Colour Foam in colour 388

I have an obsession with colouring my hair, currently it is ombre with dark brown/black on top and a light red (fading to orange) below. This foam is intended for multiple usage, which is what excited me the most, as I always have leftovers of hair dye, even though my hair is quite long it is not as thick. The Schwarzkopf website explain that "Ultimate Colour is the first ever multi-usage permanent colour foam, which can be applied without mixing and can be used more than once. This groundbreaking new product how it is able to be used multiple times, as the developer and colour do not mix until you squeeze the pump. It retails for $24.95AUD but being a fairly new product to the market many places are having sales, I purchased it for $17.00AUD. I look forward to trying this out and will update when I have. 

Covergirl Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss in colour 240 Coral Silk

This is a lovely peach coloured nail polish, leaning slightly towards an orange peach colour. I have heard good things about this formula as it "combines a base coat, high gloss colour, and a chip-resistant top coat in one simple step." I usually use O.P.I natural nail base coat and top coat so I might try this without all of that and then compare how it lasts when it is used.

Considering I own so many nail polishes I am surprised that I do not own many brown colours. This brown looks gorgeous in the bottle, I hope it looks just as good on my nails! I will swatch this soon along with the other nail polish I 
purchased as soon as my current nail polish chips (so probably tomorrow night after work). This seems like a great range of colours with 45 shades in the collection and they retail for $6.95AUD, but I purchased them 2 for $7.00AUD 
so really it was buy one get one free. 

* Please excuse the terrible photo quality, the light is really dim in my room and I was too impatient to wait till tomorrow.

New Beginnings

First Post

A big hello to anyone reading this!!

Let me introduce myself to begin with, My name is Liz. I am 20 (almost 21!) and I live south of Perth in Western Australia, currently living with my boyfriend and his family but we have plans to move out as soon as he has a stable job. I am a full time student studying Law, and I also work casually at a large department store. The other most important thing about me is that I love all things beauty related, my bathroom cabinet and under my bed is full of products that I have hoarded (bad liz). 

I am currently on my winter break and was beginning to get a little bored of sitting around the house all day. Hence why I am writing this blog write now. I have been obsessed with beauty blogs for quite a while and check my Bloglovin account almost hourly! I recommend joining if you haven't already, unless of course you don't have a lot of spare time because watch out you will get hooked.

I plan to focus this blog on beauty and skincare products, with updates of my monthly Lust Have It! box, and occasionally other things that take my fancy.
