EMPTIES | October '15

EMPTIES | October '15 - The Body Shop, Manuka Doctor, elf, Australis, Daiso, Maybelline, Schwarzkopf - CassandraMyee


The end of October is nigh, so of course I have to share what products I finished over the past month. Again, there were a lot of products I got through and I'm always amazed at how many I do go through over a four week period. There's lot of skincare (as usual), as well as some of my favourite makeup items that came to a sad end.

MOST LOVED | October '15

MOST LOVED | October '15 - Max Factor, Moreish Skincare, Antipodes, Essie, Bourjois - CassandraMyee


I really can not believe how quickly the months are flying by - in fact it is really freaking me out! So it's nearly the end of October, so I thought I would round out this week with the usual round-up of Most Loved and Empties (coming on Friday). This month I was trying out a lot of new products, but there were only a few that really stood out as clear favourites for me.

LUST HAVE IT | Women's Beauty Box September '15 Unboxing + Thoughts

LUST HAVE IT | Women's Beauty Box September Unboxing + Thoughts - CassandraMyee
It's that time again for another unboxing of this month's Lust Have It Women's Beauty Box for September*. This month is definitely not as good as the last one (see it here), but there are some products inside that I do look forward to using, with the whole bag having the theme 'On The Go'.

THE BODY SHOP | New Honey Bronze Tinted Leg Mist + Highlighting Domes Review

THE BODY SHOP | New Honey Bronze Tinted Leg Mist + Highlighting Domes - CassandraMyee

You're probably all aware by now that I am a big lover of The Body Shop; you can pretty much guarantee everyday I use something from their range, whether it's their skincare, or makeup. One of my favourite makeup products from them is the Honey Bronze Bronzing Powder (pictured to the right), so I was so excited to see that they have extended the Honey Bronze range with some more great products.

FABY | Music Mini Set Spring/Summer 2015 Nail Lacquer Collection

FABY | Music Spring/Summer 2015 Nail Lacquer Collection - Review + Swatches - CassandraMyee

When the warmer months roll around, it is always appropriate to go bright on the nails. Although I feel like bright, in-your-face nails are good for any time of the year, you can always get away with louder colours during the Spring and Summer. Faby have just released a brand new collection of 12 new shades dubbed their Music Collection, and have brought out a Music Mini Set* of four polishes from this new drop with shades that are perfect for Summer.  

ANTIPODES | Cleanser, Serum + Day Cream Skincare Review

ANTIPODES | Skincare Review Hallelujah Lime & Patchouli Cleanser, Chia & Kiwi Seed Superfood Serum + Vanilla Pod Day Cream - CassandraMyee

Antipodes is a brand I always hear amazing things about from people all over the world, but surprisingly I've never used any of their products before! Obviously, this had to be rectified, and I was over the moon to receive a few products from the range to try out. Over the past couple of months, I've been using these in my normal skincare regime and I've gotta say, they have not disappointed! 

KAREN MURRELL | Christmas Lipstick + Charm Bracelet Gift Set

KAREN MURRELL | Christmas Lipstick + Charm Bracelet Gift Set - CassandraMyee


You might think it's a little bit too early to be talking about Christmas, but over the past few weeks I've received some amazing gift sets and products that will be released over the festive season, so why not get a head start on some Christmas shopping?! This set from Karen Murrell* will please any lipstick lover, and I'm sure it will make an appearance on many Christmas wishlists.

ESSIE | Gel Setter Top Coat + 'Double Breasted Jacket' - Review + Swatches

ESSIE | gel setter Top Coat + 'Double Breasted Jacket' - Review + Swatches - CassandraMyee

I feel like its been well established that I love Essie nail polish. I'm pretty sure my collection has almost doubled since I did this particular post here - the obsession is real! New to the Essie line up is the Gel Setter Top Coat*, designed to give that gel like manicure look to the nails without all the fuss, and naturally I was curious to see what it was all about.

JOBAZ | Max Strength Hair Colour Remover - Review, Before + After

JOBAZ | Max Strength Hair Colour Remover - Review, Before + After - CassandraMyee

I'll be the first to admit that I am a serial hair dyer; I've been so many different colours and shades. There's been blonde, there's been bright red, I've had ombre, and pink and blue, so much so that I have no idea what my natural hair colour is underneath all of that colouring! I've been various shades of brunette for a while now, and will go through stages of having an ombre, then putting through a totally dark brown once I get sick of it. 

I have been curious though about hair colour removal and spied this JoBaz Hair Colour Remover* at the supermarket and thought about giving it go, a few weeks later I was contacted by the company to see if I wanted to try it out, so naturally I said why not?! I have been toying with the idea of going back slightly lighter for summer and thought using this could kick start the process. It was an interesting experience, and this might be a long post, but if you are curious about this product or at-home hair colour removal, keep on reading....

LIFE | A QUICK PSA...

This is just a very quick little announcement to say that I will be taking this week off from posting, but I'll be back next Monday (12th October) and the normal schedule will resume. To be honest I've been in a bit of rut with my blog and lacking in motivation for writing posts. I have a …

GOODNESS PRODUCTS | Grab & Go Goodness Try-It Kit

GOODNESS PRODUCTS | Grab & Go Goodness Try-It Kit Skincare Review - CassandraMyee

If you're anything like me (or any other beauty lover to be honest), I'm sure you're a sucker for cute little miniature products. I love mini products as they are perfect for travelling with, and they also let you try out a product from a brand before committing to the full size. Goodness Products have answered all of our wishes and have come out with the perfect Grab & Go Try-It Kit*, which contains the five products from the line in mini form.
