Katy Perry Killer Queen's Royal Revolution Review

Katy Perry royal revolution is her third edition to the killer queen's collection, this time in a gorgeous Blue bottle . I always love the diamond shaped bottles Katy perry releases I find them to be so unique and pretty. Royal revolution is described as a floral fragrance inspired by the beauty of a blue diamond. I pick up on a lot a of sweet notes more so than the floral , the floral comes more into play in the dry down or base notes, I got a 3-4 hours of wear time.
(please excuse my perfume box, my mail man is quite rough)

Notes included
Top Notes: Pink Freesia, Pomegranate
Middle Notes: Sandalwood, Orange Flower, Jasmine Petals
Base Notes: Black Thorn, Skin Musk, Vanilla Orchid

Killer Queen’s Royal Revolution will be available for purchase at Myer, Priceline and select pharmacies nationally

Royal Revolution Eau de Parfum 100 ml - $69
Royal Revolution Eau de Parfum 50 ml - $49
Royal Revolution Eau de Parfum 30 ml - $39

Coconut Oil Exfoliating Scrub

I've always been a fan of natural DIY beauty remedies knowing what's actually going into the product makes it all the worth while. Coconut oil has hit the health food scene major in the last few years a hidden gem that has finally got it's time in the spotlight. There are countless beauty benefits from using it in your hair to using it on your face it really is a miracle oil. 

A simple lip and hand exfoliate with a ratio of 1:1 of sugar and coconut oil mixed to create a paste than massaged into the hands and lips really gets rid of any dead skin cells as well as hydrating and moisturising the skin. Make sure to use Certified Organic Virgin Cold Pressed unrefined coconut oil as this is the one that has been less treated and more 'pure'. 
Coconut oil Exfoliating Scrub
1 teaspoon sugar white or brown
1 teaspoon coconut oil
Mix ingredients together to create a paste than massage into lips and hands. Wash away with water than pat dry with a hand/face towel

Benefit boi-ing Concealer Review

One of my problems is waking up with a monster pimple around my chin area that totally takes centre of my whole face, and me being so white any redness from a pimple is extremely noticeable on my skin. So having a good concealer on hand is a must for my makeup routine. Benefit boi-ing a industrial strength concealer is my go to holy grail concealer I know whenever I use it I'm going to get full coverage and pretty much wipe out any existence of those dreaded red pimples. It's quite a thick concealer so I personally don't use it for under eyes although I have heard girls swear by it for under eye circles, I find it great for red spots around the face it's very creamy and glides on easy only needing the tiniest amount of product to completely conceal a problem area. I recommend only dabbing a small amount on at first as it can get a little cakey if to much is used, a concealer brush works great for applying product and fingers are just as good as well (make sure there clean!) My fair skin is in the shade 01 which is the lightest shade in the range and matches me perfectly. Although a little pricey it's definitely a higher end concealer that really does the trick.

Anatomicals Review

I was so happy to hear that Anatomicals had finally hit Aussie shores after hearing so many blogger/youtubers rave on about these quirky, bright packaged bath and body care products! The packaging totally won me over, I love the colours and the cheeky puns/illustrations  on each product.

There won't be a dry thigh in the house lilac body lotion 200ml
I must say the writing on the back of this one had me giggling lets just say it starts with "blubber,blubber, blubber." A body lotion enriched with lilac that helps condition and beautify the skin with added vitamin e which is great for moisturising. Now that it's winter in Aus my skin was screaming out for this, I have smooth skin again!

The seven deadly skins melon body scrub 200ml
The scent is delicious packed full of honey dew melon which is enriched with vitamins A & C perfect to condition dry skin. There are some little rough pieces of pumice in the formula which is what exfoliates the skin, the pumice is sourced from ancient volcanic rock, I'm feeling like royalty and my skin is baby soft!

Be good with your hands in bed avocado rich hand cream $100ml
I was really excited about this one I have a secret obsession with hand creams it's packed full of Shea butter, avocado, avocado oil and vitamin e. It's aimed to be used at bed time hence the name, it does leave a slight oily feel to the hands but this is due to it being for night time use. I love that it's not super heavy and I could literally feel my hands soften instantly. Probably my fave from the range.

Whole lotta shakin goin on grapefruit and mandarin hand soap 300ml
Can I just say how cute is the bottle, it actually made hand washing a pleasure to do for once. Filled with moisturising mandarin and grapefruit making it smell delicious. And who can argue with the directions "lather into wet hands so you're always ready to shake, rattle and roll." This hand soap possibly has something to do with Elvis!

There are 15 products in the anatomicals range which are a paraben free (yay bonus!) with the body care being $8.99 and hand care $7.99. Available at Target, Priceline and Chemistwarehouse.

Sally Hansen Triple Shine Nail Colour In Flame On Review And Swatches

The new Sally Hansen Triple shine nail colours are available in 27 different shades, the gloss is protected with a ultimate shield complex exclusive to Sally Hansen formulated to make your polish withstand wear and tear including water etc. They are extremely glossy and shiny and Flame on only needed two coats for maximum opaqueness. I didn't use a top coat in these photos just to show how shinny and glossy there are without one! Flame on is a lovely metallic Fuchsia with tiny shimmery sparkles through out. Loving the formula on these polishes smooth and no clumps, the brush is a dream to work with shaped perfectly to fit the nail in only a few strokes.

Beyonce Rise Perfume Review

Beyonce has released yet another fabulous scent to add to her growing collection called Rise. Rise was inspired by Beyonce's belief in women's empowerment, strength and beauty. Beyonce says "The spirit of RISE encourages women to be all that we are." I think that's a great message behind a perfume, I really love the girl power that Beyonce sends out to women it's nice to see a celebrity encouraging women and letting them know it's ok to be fabulous no matter who you are or what you look like. Here is a description of the scent take from her website
A rich and intoxicating luminous floral that leaves a lasting impression. BeyoncĂ© Rise, the scent of empowerment, features BeyoncĂ©’s favorite flower, the Orchid. The Gold Symphony Orchid and Golden Apricot form a delightful duet creating a bold statement that is also playful.

It is one of my favourite celeb scents it's not sweet like most celebrity perfumes it's more feminine and soft, definitely one of my faves from Beyonce. The notes include

Top Notes
Italian Bergamot, Golden Apricot, Iced Basil Sorbet

Heart Notes
Gold Symphony Orchid, Freesia Blossom, Natural Jasmine Sambac

Base Notes
Autumn Woods Accord, Cashmere Musk,
Vetiver Extract
