  • How To: Do Beauty On A Budget

    Thu, 26 June 2014 11:30AM

    This is not a news flash: beauty don’t come cheap. But if you have ever purchased a mascara (or 34), indulged in a manicure, or succumbed to that must-have matte lipstick, then you already know this. However, buying beauty doesn’t have to break the piggy bank. Just ask Tyra Banks who has openly broadcast her habit of… more

  • Budget Beauty: Half the Cost, Double the Kudos

    Tue, 13 August 2013 1:13PM

    Taken a hit at tax time? I have. Seems my recalcitrant relationship with my BAS statement has found me fending off the taxman with monthly repayment instalments. Now, unless monthly repayment instalments pertains to art or sculpture being placed around my home at four-weekly intervals, I’m not so jazzed. But, I am remaining positive, and looking… more



  • Why We Love Face of Australia’s Mineral Therapy Illuminators …

    Wed, 9 January 2013 5:10PM

    Reason #1: There’s a shade for everyone and every possible use. Angel Mist is a pretty pinky-pearl that just begs to be dappled onto the cheekbones, under browbones, and along the collarbones. Or it can simply add an ethereal all-over glow to lighter skintones. Angel Blush is a divine shade of champagne perfect for mixing into foundation… more



  • What to Buy this Week: Rimmel London Scandaleyes Kohl Kajal Waterproof Eye Liner

    Mon, 26 November 2012 11:17AM

    Oh, look! It’s a new eye pencil! Okay, I know what you’re thinking: Ho-hum. Well, stop right there, ye jaded Primpers! Because this newbie is not only worth reading about. It’s worth buying. And then some. Because with 15 shades available, I’m thinking you’ll want at least three. Possibly six. Very likely even more. Which won’t be an issue… more

  • The Top Five Beauty Myths. Busted.

    Fri, 6 July 2012 3:53PM

    Having trouble deciphering the smoke and mirrors that is the dizzy world of beauty? With so much information available to us on all things cosmetic it can get somewhat confusing. It’s a jungle out there (albeit a very well groomed, sweet smelling, preened jungle) but confusing all the same. Circumnavigating one’s way around the old wives’ tales,… more

  • My Chemist Romance: Got ten minutes and $20? Then this is the post for you…

    Tue, 3 April 2012 12:24PM

    I am a Cosmetic Counsellor. Although I have no university certificate to verify this title, I’m claiming it anyway. See, I have spent countless hours counselling friends, family, bar maids and baristas on how to get the best product for as little spend as possible. This conversation peppers my everyday. It seems as soon as my… more

  • I’m with Team Gleam. Are you?

    Thu, 15 March 2012 9:48AM

    I know that you’re not meant to cover your entire face in shimmer cream. A zillion makeup artists have told me this. And I get the logic in this particular beauty rule … That the glimmery particles can sink and settle into crevices and magnify lines, making them look like wrinkles before their time. Or… more



  • Milan A/W ’12: Moschino goes all retro on us

    Mon, 27 February 2012 5:24PM

    Though thousands of beauty products are launched every year (which I, for one, am thrilled about, as it keeps me in a job), few stand the test of time. These top-notch buys might not be the fanciest, priciest or most glamorous on the shelves, but their efficacy, ease or downright prettiness make them must-haves for… more
