Christmas Wishlist Feat BellaQuirks + Coupon Code!

Hey lovelies!

Christmas is less than a month away & honestly sometimes I’m really lost at what to buy my girlfriends. I am not really a one-gift-person. I usually like to tag on a few smaller cute items in the bundle.

Recently I’ve been eyeing a lot of Fred & Friends items, because they are just so adorable & almost make mundane things in the day more exciting! However it is pretty hard to get hold of those items in Singapore without having to pay exorbitant shipping.

logo

BellaQuirks has the perfect balance of beauty + quirky items. In addition all their prices are really reasonable, unlike some other online stores who hike up their prices by a lot, BellaQuirks doesn’t.

BellaQuirks also offer free shipping with any purchase + they have a pretty awesome exchange & return policy!

Let me share with you some of my picks for this holiday seasons, trust me I had a hard time narrowing down it’s almost like I wanted to feature everything on the site!
20131130-133015.jpgOne. Fred & Friends The Cook’s Carrot Whisk
How cute is this whisk? A whimsy touch for anyone’s kitchen!

Two. Fred & Friends Cupcake Express Baking Cups
How adorable are these little cupcake baking cups? Load them up with yummlicious batter, bake them then frost them! Can anyone say yum!

Three. Fred & Friends Salt Matryoshka S&P
Classic Russian matryoshka dolls salt & pepper shakers!

Four. Qualy Sparrow Salad Set
I feel like this would make a perfect housewarming gift. Now who would be able to resist two adorable sparrows?

20131130-133028.jpg

One. Qualy Desk Bunny Holder
Probably the most creative and adorable idea to store paper clips and scissors.

Two. Qualy Note Sparrow
Perfect way to keep your important notes organised or even just as a simple deco on your desk.

Three. Qualy Deer in the Forest Paper Clip Holder
How cute would this look at your work desk or even at home? Looking at it makes me happy already.

Four. Fred & Friends Fingerprint Bookmarks
How cute is this? You can have the finger pointing to the exact word you were reading, so now you won’t have to re-read the whole page just to find out where you left off.

If you were wanting some beauty products, fret not BellaQuirks has got that covered too!

One thing which I do like about the Bella section of BellaQuirks is that most of these products are not easily accessible to most of us in Singapore. Many a time I see a blogger talk about something interesting, however once it lands in Sg it usually is a different version.

BellaQuirks has products ranging from Real Techniques brushes, Sigma brushes & makeup, assorted mascara (which can be a chore if you are trying to ship it to sg on your own) & awesome drugstore products which never made it to Singapore.

20131130-133021.jpg

One. Wet and Wild Palette (Blue had me at hello & Comfort zone)
Two. Sigma Beauty Crème de Couture Collection
Three. Assorted mascaras
Four. Maybelline Colour Sensational Vivids Lip colour

Just to share with you girls some of the items which I received from BellaQuirks, will do a more indepth review & swatch of the palette soon! If you’re interested in the palette, you can find it here!

How stunning is this palette? It’s my first encounter with TheBalm shadows and I must say I am pretty impressed.

20131130-134157.jpg

You guys probably know how much of a book nerd I actually am. So when I saw this sprout bookmark which I’ve been eyeing for ages, I knew I had to get it! My current series obsession – Divergent <3

20131130-134303.jpg

The sprout set comes with 6 sprouts in 3 different colours. Priced at $6.90 only, it’s the perfect stocking stuffer for a bookworm friend! One can never have too many bookmarks sprouts!

LUSH Christmas 2013

So last week I was down at the LUSH Suntec (my first time there!) to preview all the Christmas goodies and boy am I excited for Christmas. I think since we have almost stepped into November the holiday talks has began!

Lush Christmas 20135

Honestly Lush make some of the best gifts, because they are wrapped up so nicely and they all look just super fun! I think any girly girl would  be happy to receive a box of Lush anytime.

A LUSH Christmas Worth Celebrating!

Christmas never ends at LUSH! We put a great deal of effort, along with a little LUSH magic, into our seasonal ranges, as we want to keep our customers happy. This year’s range sees some exciting new developments worth celebrating – the replacement of plastic glitter with agar jelly stars and shapes and edible lustres, and we are working towards removing preservatives completely. Our two new luxurious limited edition hand and body lotions are 100% unpreserved, (a patent applied for innovation) as are most of our other products. Our festive range also contains some of our all year-round popular fragrances, so if you fall in love with a Christmas product you will still be able to enjoy something similar for the rest of the year.

Lush Christmas 20131

IMG_4393

Angel’s Delight ($10.50 for 100g) … Just Heavenly
This annual favourite is back with the same jelly baby scent that you know and love! Angel’s will swoon for all the pink sparkly stars and moons that are embedded in this soap and it’s the tangerine and orange oils, along with blackcurrant that give it its yummy fragrance. These oils also really work to cleanse, refresh and detox the skin.

Lush Christmas 20134

NEW Snow Fairy Sparkle ($16.50) … Sweet Sparkling Skin
Snow Fairy fragranced sparkle in a bar! With a soft heart full of moisturising butters, oils and shimmering silver lustre to leave you smelling candy sweet and ready for your party dress. Smooth this bar over your arms and shoulders for soft shimmering skin that catches the light as you flutter.

Magic Wand Bubble Bar ($16.50) … Sweet Scented Bubbles
Fairy princesses of all ages will love this great value re-usable bubble bar for up to ten bubble baths. Swish it around in the water for a skin softening, vanilla scented soak and a mound of candy bubbles. Then pop it on the side for use another time … just like magic!

Lush Christmas 20136

Snow Fairy (prices start at $14 for 100g) … Truly Scrumptious
A festive favourite and cause for celebration, this year Snow Fairy is unpreserved and we’ve replaced her non-biodegradable glitter with environmentally friendly shimmering lustre! But don’t worry, she has the same sweet, magical scent of soothing vanilla and comforting vanilla – she’s just granting the planet’s wishes as well as yours!

Lush Christmas 20139

Rose Jam (prices start at $15.50 for 100g) … A Kiss from a Rose
Inspired by our love for roses and the benefits of nourishing argan oil, this shower gel is a decadent as it gets! Skin brightening goji berry juice and Sicilian lemon give your skin a boost, while rose oil and rose absolute leave it soothed, softened and beautifully fragranced. A luxurious way to start each day.

Bath Ballistics

Invented by Mo Constantine OBE in 1987. The Bath Ballistic is often imitated, but none compare to the original. Each one is formulated with the finest ingredients and essential oils to cleanse both the mind and body. This Christmas, instead of glitter we have added popping candy, edible lustres and agar jelly stars and shapes for spectacular bathing. Simply drop into a ready run, warm bath and watch as it fizzes around the tub with abandonment, emitting its goodness into the water.

Lush Christmas 20137 Lush Christmas 20138

Golden Wonder ($12) … A Wonder to Behold
Drop this gold dusted gift into a warm bath and watch in wonder as golden stars burst out,dissolving in the water before your very eyes, turning the bath water a vibrant blue. The champagne-like fragrance of sweet orange oil, cognac oil and lime oil will uplift your spirits.

NEW FRAGRANCE The Melting Snowman ($7.50) … Softening Snowman Soak
Cocoa butter and almond oil nourish and soften the skin while the cinnamon leaf oil invigorates and helps shake off fatigue. This year he’s got a beautiful, comforting, spicy and warming hot toddy fragrance of cinnamon oil, clove leaf, lime oil and sweet orange oil. Vegan

Lush Christmas 20133

NEW Shoot for the Stars ($10.50) … Night Time Enchantment
Uplifting Brazilian orange oil, clarifying bergamot and the creamy scent of honey will deeply relax you in the bath. Shoot for the Stars creates an out of this world, enchanting bath as the stars inside whizz and swirl about the bathwater, leaving you submerged in clouds of colour. Fragranced with Honey I Washed the Kids – our best selling soap.

Cinders ($8.50) … Warm By The Fireside
Cinders ballistic invokes the feeling of a warm, glowing fireside; made with warming cinnamon leaf oil and sweet orange oil to lift the spirits. Popping candy tops it all off, to emulate that comforting sound of a crackling open fire, while you relax in the bath.

There were actually more which I am unable to feature in this post so I do recommend you pop by Lush to check them out! There are a lot of lovely smelling goodies which are all limited just for this festive season! :D

The Body Shop Honeymania [Information & Pictures]

Awhile ago I went for The Body Shop’s Honeymania launch, and if you follow me for awhile you would know that I love (might be bordering on obsessed with) TBS. Known fact that at any one time I must have a body butter by my bed side amongst other creams. I feel like TBS has one of the most hydrating and moisturizing butter.

You would be glad to know that Honeymania has joined TBS permanent line. I know that in the permanent line, TBS has quite a few stronger scents so you’ll be glad to know that the Honeymania scent is pretty mild but still smells lovely.  It has a slight floral scent (reminds me of white floral) and that is because the honey used in the products a wild harvested floral honey.

SAM_9565

I really love the visuals for the Honeymania products, like all TBS products they always feature the main ingredient in a very visually appealing way. The honey obtained are all Community Fair Trade honey from Ethiopia and it’s actually really interesting how the bee keepers harvest the honey! It’s also nice to know that purchasing a jar of this helps a family in Ethiopia perhaps send their children to school :’)

To product enough honey for one product it takes about 100 bees travelling 2,100km to harvest nectar from about 50,000 flowers. In case you’re wondering, no bees are being harmed in the process and this is a very natural process which bees goes through.

SAM_9573

The body butter and scrub has always been (and will probably always be) TBS heroes! The body butter is so luxurious and it leaves your skin feeling so soft and smooth + it has a light honey and slightly floral scent. The scrub is rich but not overly abrasive, even just looking at the picture you can see how though it is a scrub it looks very luxurious and moisturising.

SAM_9568

This was probably the product which reminisce my most of honey, bubble bath melt. It really looked like TBS has just put a whole jar of honey in, it’s texture is so honey-like and it looks like liquid gold! If you’ve got a tub I think this is a must have! Honey is sooo nourishing and soothing to the skin plus it would feel so indulgent.

SAM_9567I love how there is a bee being embossed on the soap, it’s sooo adorable!

Ending off with this super adorable video which I really enjoyed when shown during the event, hope you will like it too! (: Toodles!

The new Honeymania range will consist of:
Honeymania Body Butter $30.90
Honeymania Body Scrub $30.90
Honeymania Bath Melt $24.90
Honeymania Lip Balm $10.90
Honeymania Eau De Toliette $22.90

I’m leaving on a Jet Plane…

..don’t know when I’ll be back again. LOL!

This post is probably gonna be the shortest post ever and I don’t have a better way to break the news but I’m leaving on a jet plane! I will be moving back to Brisbane at the end of the year! :D

In saying that no worries, you’ll still see me on this space with updates from down under but I thought I should still let you girls know about the move. I might be kinda MIA the next few months, so please bear with me! Before I leave I will be doing probably 2 blog sales of a lot of preloved items because amongst my clothes, books, makeup, perfume, shoes, bags & etc (LOL). I really can’t bring them all.

Till the next post! Thanks for all your support on elizabeauty, girls!  <3

Empties Post Volume III: October 2013

*waves* hello guys! I’ve been MIA-ing for abit no excuses, just busy. Will let you guys know in due time. :) Anyways! I feel like I’ve been doing soo many empties in the past few months, but I guess that’s good because it means I’m using up products! I’ve already have a huge bag of products for the next post, because this is more of a September post rather than October *oops*.

Okay let’s just jump right in! First up, hair products!

SAM_9205

Lush Retread Hair Conditioner - I got this conditioner solely because I know that it goes well with Rehab. It did leave my hair feeling soft, I loved it but I don’t think I’ll run out and get it just because it’s pretty pricey and I don’t find it is a must-have.

Lush Rehab Shampoo - I love this! It really helps tame my lion’s mane. I’ve actually ran out to get the huge 500grams bottle but I’ve not started using it! I’ve had a sudden influx of hair shampoo so I’m still making my way through my stash! Honestly I felt like it was sooo pricey but I am glad I caved in & got it because it really does help tame my hair and it does make it more manageable.

SAM_9204

Retrieve Hair Essence – I really love this product, it helped tamed my hair so well. It was pretty pricey like $60-70 for the bottle but so worth it! It’s an oil but it doesn’t leave my hair feeling all greasy and gross.

Aussie Moist 3 Minute Miracle - Okay first thing, I really don’t fancy the packaging because it doesn’t have lid! So basically there is a hole on the under side & you just squeeze it, it won’t leak but it’s just odd to have a product without a lid. Other than that, it does exactly what it promises. I honestly leave it on for less than 3 minutes but it leaves my hair feling sooo soft!

SAM_9207

Bioderma Créaline H20 - Everyone loves Bioderma, I mean do I need to say more? What can be better than Bioderma? Bioderma wipes! They are sooo convenient and get rid of all the makeup.

Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes - I personally do not like this wipes because I feel that it really doesn’t remove ever single smidgen of makeup. I usually use this only after removing my makeup with another remover or to remove swatches. The cloth was a tad rough for the eye area too.

Korres Pomegranate Wipes - These wipes smelled odd, I did’t like the scent at all! In terms of how it worked with removing makeup I donn’t think it did a fantastic job, it was just alright. Won’t be repurchasing it.

Bifesta Eye Makeup Remover - This product has been repurchased countless times, I really can’t tell you how many times I’ve repurchased this! This might be my favourite and the best eye makeup remover I’ve used. My eyes are rather sensitive so they get irritated with quite a few eye makeup removal products. This eye makeup remover is a bi-layer remover, it does contain oil so if you’re someone who doesn’t like removers with oil this won’t be your remover of choice.

SAM_9212

Clarins Extra Water Comfort One-Step Cleanser – Firstly I love the scent! I mean it smells like peach, what can be better than that? I have again repurchased this countless times and will probably never stop! Although Clarins promotes this as a one-step cleanser but I use this more as a toner. It feels amazing and does make my skin feel dry or tight. I can’t rave enough about it, I love it & you should go get a whiff of it!

Clarins Double Serum - I don’t think I’ve used a serum other than Hydraquench from Clarins but I decided to try this (because it was kinda new) & I really love it! From the name suggest it has 2 different types of serum both helping to target age-control. I really notice that my skin texture and skin tone improved while using it. I’ve since repurchased it and I just started using it.

Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate - When I first purchased it I felt like it worked really well. Then I got tired of it & stopped using it. It is  a good product but I’m not sure why I stopped using. My mom took over and she loved it! It really helped rehydrate her skin because she had a period where her skin was getting rather dry. I have repurchased & I am using it probably twice a week now. Even though it’s oil it will not make your skin oilier, however I do not use a moisturizer when I use this as I find it too rich if I do.

The Body Shop Vitamin C Capsules - I love love love this product! I get this every so often when I feel like my complexion looks dull. This really helps to brighten up and smoothens out my skin. If you need a pick-me-up or a boost I do recommend trying this out.

SAM_9214

 

Clarins Lotus Face Oil - I used this mixed with my toner and applied the face oil every night. It felt really nourishing and it kept my skin feeling soft and hydrated throughout the night.  I would definitely repurchase this some time soon!

YSL Forever Youth Liberator Nutri Creme - I received it when I bought the YSL Forever Youth Liberator Serum, which I’ll be talking about in my next empties! It was okay but I wasn’t wow-ed by the product, I don’t think I’ll repurchase it again.

Dr Ci:Labo Aqua-Collagen-Gel Enrich-Lift-EX - I LOVE THIS SO MUCH! I received this in one of the VT and I am usually one who doesn’t like asian skincare at all. Not sure why but my skin just doesn’t do well with asian skincare. However my skin LOVES this, it just helps make my skin feel SO SO SO soft the very next day and it really does hydrate my skin. The texture of the product is gel like hence doesn’t feel  heavy on your skin.

Chanel Cleansing Water for Face and Eyes - I love this product, it smells nice and removes face makeup rather well but I don’t find it does a good job removing eye makeup (unless you have super light eye makeup). It doesn’t remove waterproof eyeliner well and I have to tug my skin quite a bit to remove it.

SAM_9208

 

Bath and Body Works Nectarine Mint Hand Foaming Wash - This is kinda random but I had to include this because I loved it. I love nectarine scents and this was just perfect. There wasn’t any mint scent so it was really just hardcore nectarine which I love! Plus it pumps out as a foam which is awesome. This brings hand washing to the next level, no joke. lol. I want to repurchase it but this is a summer scent so that means I’ve gotta wait till next year!

Nip + Fab Pistachio Sundae - I heard quite a few youtubers comparing this to the Laura Mercier Pistachio Body Butter so I had to try this since that was limited edition. This smelled like pandan, yes pandan to me. I finished it up but I wasn’t a huge fan of it so I won’t be repurchasing it.

LemonGrass House Rose Absolute Shower Gel - I think I received this in a Bellabox/VT. I love travel sized items and used it at the gym. It smells like straight up rose and I really like it. It doesn’t lather up a lot and is quite thick but it gets the job done.

Jo Malone Nectarine Blossom –  Continuing with my nectarine addiction I had a sample vial of this. This reminds me of Australia just because one summer before I came back for holiday I bought a whole bunch of nectarine to bring back to Singapore. I had to leave the bag open the whole night and the next day my whole apartment just smelled like nectarine! This really smells just like that and I love it! I’ve recently purchased & I just love it! :D

Woahhhhh if you made it to the end of this mega long post, thank you very much! I hope you’ve enjoyed the mini reviews of the products.

Ciaté Holiday 2013 [Information & Pictures]

A few days ago I was at the Sephora Holiday 2013 Beauty Night Out and I previewed some of the new and up coming brands as well as the Holiday 2013 collection and can I just say, I can’t wait for Christmas!

I am super excited to let you girls know that Tarte will be hitting out shores in Nov, but I  shall save that for another post!:D

Out of all the holiday 2013 collections which are being released I think Ciaté is going to have one of the best if not the best collection! I like both the holiday sets and would love to get my paws on both!
