I was lucky enough recently to be included in a trial team of Payot Creme Riche Dermo-Apaisante courtesy of The Facial Company, an Australian online store that stocks a huge range of quality skincare, including harder-to-find brands. They often have discounts and specials, as well as regular Facebook promotions like this one. Payot Creme Riche Dermo-Apaisante has a rrp of AUD$95 for a 50ml jar.

I trialled this cream for 3 weeks - read on after the jump for review and photos:
The Ciate Chalkboard Manicure set is an interesting innovation - it includes a matte black base polish, matte top coat, and 4 coloured pens (similar to felt tip pens) to create all kinds of artwork on your nails!
Of course this was too cute an idea for me to pass up, so I snapped it up the very first day it was available. Do I love it? I love it the way my fiance loves me - I'm difficult, irritating, and downright disastrous at times, but much too adorable to give up on!
Skin Physics is an Australian skincare and beauty brand which, although relatively new (established in 2009), has a small but interesting range of products. They have fun electronics like a photon LED skin rejuvenation device and a well-priced sonic cleansing brush for face and body, an unusual"facial sculpting gel" called Dragon's Blood (eep!) and skincare ranges called Cellugen and Pore Away. I haven't tried any of their other products yet, but I was lucky enough to win their Pore Away Mattifying Base Primer through a Facebook promotion, and I really like it!
I love makeup, skincare and
everything girly, so the hardest part of writing my first blog article is, what
topic do I choose? I finally hit on the one thing I’m known for – smoky eyes. I
have small eyes, which I hate, so I try every trick in the book to make them look
bigger and more dramatic. I wear smoky eyes every day, and do my makeup on the
train (it buys me an extra 30 minutes sleep!). Because I’m travelling and don’t
want to take a brush roll and 300 shadows with me every day, I had to choose my
“bare essentials” and trim my technique as well. It showed me how little I
need, and how little effort it is, to get the smoky look I love. So without
further ado, let me share my technique with you for easy-peasy smoky eyes!
