Talk Beauty NZ

Last Saturday, I attended my first ever beauty event. Talk Beauty NZ is an event for beauty bloggers/vloggers, makeup artists and beauty lovers. Now I know I’m not just a beauty blogger but I do love makeup and feature it here on the blog so I thought it was a great opportunity to meet fellow beauty enthusiasts and brands.

Beauty Empties

It’s been a while since I did an empties post and while I was cleaning my room, I found the paper bag I was storing all my used-up beauty products. It’s the new year and it’s time I throw these away.

I have a mixture of skincare, body care and haircare products so if you want to know if I recommend repurchasing any of these, click below.

September Beauty Box

It has been a few months since the last Beauty Review Beauty Box but the September box finally came out. I received it last week and I’ve been excited to share it to you.

If you haven’t heard, Beauty Review is this awesome NZ website where you can post reviews of makeup, skincare and haircare products. You can engage with others in the forum, read articles and you can also get your hands on their beauty box. I bought the last one back in March and it was such great value that I couldn’t resist picking one up again.

To see the full haul of what’s inside September’s Beauty Box, continue below.

Beauty Empties

I don’t know about you but I like watching product empties videos on Youtube as well as reading about them on blogs. It’s basically going through someone’s trash but I like knowing what my trusted beauty vloggers/bloggers have used up.

I’ve been collecting my empty products for a few months so I thought I’d show what I have so far.

If you’re interested to know the products I’ve used up and if I recommend them, continue below.

Beauty Vault Haul

As you may know, I’m a member of Beauty Review which is this great NZ website where you look at beauty products, review them and engage with other members. it has a forum which a good way to know new products, good deals and meet people.

BR also has a Beauty Vault which members get to ‘buy’ products using their points gained from writing reviews and posting in the forums. I managed to grab a few things from the points I’ve accumulated over the past few months which is great because I basically get to try all these new products for free.

See below what I’ve chosen from the vault.

See below for  the skincare/beauty items I have bought with me.

iherb haul cosmetics skincare elf makeup

iHerb haul

iHerb is one of my favourite places to shop online. It’s a great site and makes other brands more accessible to NZ. I love how the it has e.l.f. cosmetics, Real Techniques, Physician’s Formula and EcoTools to name a few.

Cosmetics is just one part of the site though. It has an amazing selection of supplements, skincare, bodycare and even food. This isn’t sponsored by iHerb by the way. I just love it and I’ve had a good experience from previous orders.

This specific haul is a mixture of things. I usually just buy makeup on iHerb but I decided to venture out and try some haircare and skincare products. This was bought a few months ago when I was having a really bad skin situation.

See below for details of my haul.

March Beauty Box

There are many subscription boxes out there and though I have been tempted by some, I never signed up to one. I wasn’t interested in the endless foil samples and unwearable colour shades up until Beauty Review’s Beauty Box. I missed out on the last Beauty Box so when the opportunity came up to get the March Box, I made sure I got one.

The thing I love about Beauty Review’s Beauty Box is instead of getting samples, you get at least 6 full-sized products that are readily available and in stock. The box costs $55 incl. shipping and the value is said to be worth over $236.
