I actually get asked this question a lot when people find out I like photography or plan a new project. Most of the time I’m travelling within Australia and I can’t take much with me. I am one of those people who will carry fewer beauty products and clothes so I have more room for equipment (some I forget to use anyway, but that’s not the point!).
*record scratch* You’re probably wondering where Elle is -you know- the late sometimes-“writer” of this blog that whines about anything costing over 30 dollars and swears way too much to be taken seriously by anyone. ‘I’m sure she isn’t cool enough for Clarins’ you might be thinking.. for which I’ll say yes I am and even though I know this, I’m a little insulted you thought that.
Yet here we are! Elle is reviewing some reputable skincare! Some reputable, science-based skincare at that.
Let’s cut to the chase and dive in.
Hello every single one of you cool people!
We just wanted to let you know we’ve been away after having two family emergencies happen in the past week, then another issue coming up yesterday, but I’m writing now and hoping to have something up for the weekend.
Stay safe out there
You know when you’re brain just keeps going “jfskfdjfdsk” at something and makes it difficult to actually express what you want to say? That’s how I feel about a lot of things, but today, it’s about peel off masks.
As you’ve been surfing your social media, specifically Instagram, you might have come across makeup videos featuring new looking brushes usually dubbed “oval brushes”. They’re very popular and brands are racing to make their own version, similarly to happened with the Beauty Blender.
After seeing a billion videos of these oval brushes being used and producing beautiful, flawless results, I was really curious and wanted a try some as well. I don’t need to tell you that getting anything brand new in Australia is annoying; there are some local brands that are starting to bring them out but they either sell out so fast or burn your pocket out quick-fast. Nude By Nature had brought out a set exclusively through Priceline and I sadly missed out on those. I was kicking myself.
Then on a trip to TK Maxx, I found this set of five oval brushes from an in-house brand and took them home to try…
I don’t know about you but it seems like every beauty video on Instagram is becoming more and more ridiculous under clickbait or some incredibly fucking stupid way to put makeup on. At first I wasn’t sure if it’s to be the next trendsetter, but now I’m absolutely positive it’s just for the clicks.
