A couple of weeks ago NP Set had a fantastic sale on their web store. There were some great savings and I may haves splurged just a little (lot). But I did manage to pick up some basics that I’d been looking at. I will say that delivery did take about two weeks, but I assume that this had a lot to do with the sale.

Brand Basics
In case you don’t know NP set is the drugstore sub-brand of Napoleon Perdis. The range of cosmetics is mainly made up with basic and essential makeup items as well as a few skincare thrown in. From what I’ve seen prices and quality tend to be on par with other drugstore brands. The packaging of NP set makeup is very simple black writing on white minimalist design. This is nice as it gives a very clean look and everything matches. However, the packaging isn’t of the highest quality. NP Set products are available at Big W, Target, Myers, David Jones, a collection of stockist and from their online store.

Ok now I’m done with that I can get down to the fun stuff.

August Bellabox 2014

Hiya All!

It’s that time of the month when subscription boxes star popping up at the front door. As seems to be the norm, BellaBox is first this month and a lot earlier than last month.

For those who don’t know; Bellabox is an Australian monthly beauty subscription, available from It costs $15 a month and you receive 5+ beauty products mailed to your house.

For August BellBox has decided on the theme “Sport Your Style”. From the moment this theme was announced I have been confused about what is actually means and had low expectations for the August box.  This hasn’t exactly changed.

It also seems that BellaBox has decided to drop the categories from the products. If you check out the product cards in from the last two months July and June you can see that after each product name there is a category. I feel that these categories were fun to look at and I’m sad to see these go.

Happy Skincare Product Review

About a month back I was sent a voucher code from Happy Skincare to receive a free
‘Sweet Dreams’ Softening Foot Treatment with any purchase. I had trialled one of their products in Bellabox before and had been eyeing up the Super-Sized Discovery Pack, so I jumped at this offer.

Priceline 40% off haircare haul

Priceline often has irresistible sales; Like today and tomorrows 40% of hair care sale. One of the things I love about these sales is that they gives you an opportunity to trial and experiment with dearer products and felling so guilty.

I know that some people aren't that thrilled with haircare products, but I’m constantly experimenting with vintage hairstyles and I'm yet to find the perfect products to assist me. Since I also had a loyalty points voucher for this month and needed to pick up a couple of everyday hair products I decided to pop in for a little splurge.

First up are dry shampoos. I know that these have been popular for a while now, but it's a fairly new product for me. I've not just been using this for in between cleans, I find that it's also great for creating the texture and volume needed for victory rolls and such. Polished London is the brand I've tried before but I've decided to pick up a couple others to try out too.

Polished London – Dry Shampoo in Blighty Brunette
Full priced: 150ml for $4.95, Paid: $2.74 ($1.98 saving)

Bastiste – Dry Shampoo in medium & brunette
Full priced: 200ml for $12.95, Paid: $77.7 ($5.18 saving)

Cedel – Dry Shampoo in dark hair
Full priced: 110ml for $7.99, Paid: $4.79 ($3.20 saving)

July Lust Have It FAB Box

This little parcel actually turned up on Thursday (I just haven’t gotten around to reviewing it), so technically that’s was July, but I imagine people will still be getting theirs this week. I do keep telling myself that I intend to suspend my FAB subscription, but I keep putting it off, this may also have to do with the cancellation date for the next month being before the current box arrives.

In this box you get 5 beauty products and accessories each month, from what I’ve seen the beauty products tend to be full size. For this box there are several subscriptions choices such as: introduction bundle, monthly, quarterly box, annual subscription. I have the monthly subscription at $35 per a month. It seems that there is only one variation of the FAB box each month, though sometimes product colours differ. Find out more here. From what I understand the rationale behind the FAB box is to get a range of ‘on tread’ products that have been coordinated to go together. It also seems that the cosmetics are chose to complement those in the Women’s box. find out more at Lust Have It
