MAYBELLINE | Time to Make It Happen - Huge Giveaway!

MAYBELLINE | Time to Make It Happen - Huge Giveaway! - Vivid Matte Liquid + The Blushed Nudes Lip Colors - CassandraMyee

A couple of weeks back I was lucky enough to attend an incredible launch with Maybelline, not only have they got heaps of new products coming out (more information on those will come soon), but they also launched their new slogan and initiative 'Make It Happen'. Gone are the 'Maybe She's Born With It' days, Make It Happen is all about empowering women and young girls with the confidence to achieve anything that they set their mind too. For this new launch they are looking for six kiwi girls who would act as ambassadors for the brand with Maybelline and Miss FQ, supporting them to achieve their dreams in whatever field they are passionate about. Read more below for the information on why and how you should enter, plus I have an amazing giveaway of some of the new their lip range too to celebrate this momentous change.

MANUKA DOCTOR | Purifying Face Mask Review

MANUKA DOCTOR | Purifying Face Mask Review - CassandraMyee

One thing I love doing is treating myself to a good face mask as a bit of pampering and relaxation for my skin. I try to do one at least once a week, sometimes even twice a week depending on how my skin is doing and whether it needs some extra attention. After the hype of the Manuka Doctor ApiClear Purifying Facial Peel Mask* (NZD $35.95), which I absolutely loved and have since finished, I was intrigued to try some of their other masks. The ApiClear Purifying Face Mask* is from the same range as the Facial Peel - aimed at troubled skin/acne prone/oily skin.

L'OREAL PARIS | New Product Launches for New Zealand June/July 2016 - CassandraMyee

I always get so excited when a brand like L'Oreal drops a whole lot of new product for us NZ beauty lovers to indulge in. In May I went along to a gorgeous brunch at Gusto at Sky City Grand and got to hear all about the new products launching and we were given a demonstration of the products by NZ makeup artist Lisa Matson who has been in the industry for over 20 years. She talked us through the new products as she applied them, and I couldn't wait to get home to try them for myself.

You could have all the expensive makeup in the world, but it's not going to apply well if you haven't got the right tools. A good makeup brush will do wonders to how product applies, and looks on the skin. The Beauty Collective through My Beauty Store have brought out the Simply Essential Pro Series Makeup Brushes* that are affordable, but high quality so you can get the most out of your makeup.

MELLOW COSMETICS | Glam Squad Nude Beauty Palette - Review + Swatches

MELLOW COSMETICS | Glam Squad Palette - Review + Swatches - CassandraMyee

There's nothing like a good eyeshadow palette to get me excited! I am eyeshadow palette obsessed and have way too many for any normal person, but I just always love finding and adding new ones to my collection. Wearing eyeshadow on the daily means I've used my fair share of various brands, from the affordable to the expensive. Mellow Cosmetics, a NZ owned and operated company, offer this large Glam Squad Nude Beauty Palette*, which I received in the Best Beauty Box Ever Incredible Eyes Box* (reviews here). In that post I promised that I would review this palette more in-depth as it's kind of outstanding for the price!

SOUFEEL | Charms + Bracelets - Review

SOUFEEL | Charms + Bracelets - Review - CassandraMyee

I'm not a huge jewellery wearer - what a way to start a post that is obviously all about it but bear with me for a second! Despite this, I do like collecting special items that have a lot of meaning to them and wear them on occasion. I also like the idea of handing down precious items; I have some lovely pieces from my Mum, that have been passed down through the generations that I treasure. Soufeel, based in the USA, reached out to me asking if I wanted to put together one of their charm bracelets, allowing me to pick my own charms and make my very own personalised photo charm, or Memorable Charm as they call them. I love this style of charm bracelet, so was keen to try out the website and see what the quality of their products was like.
