Dupe Alert: Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. Lancome Advanced Génifique

Hello beauties,

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair is a beauty cult favourite and a big favourite of mine. What’s interesting is the Lancome Advanced Génifique* is also a cult favourite amongst beauty bloggers, so much so that they have two serums in the range; one to target brightening and this one is more targeted at anti-aging. But what’s the difference between the two, they seem so similar…

What Estee Lauder says about the Advanced Night Repair Serum, “reveal a smoother, more radiant, younger look. Wake up to more beautiful skin every day. Tested and proven: Advanced Night Repair dramatically reduces the look of all key signs of ageing.”

Overall Thoughts on the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum:

  • $95 for 30ml
  • Easy to use dropper
  • The texture is a little gluggy and thick, not too watery
  • No distinct smell
  • Absorbs nicely into the skin and a perfect base for my evening moisturiser
  • I find this adds the perfect amount of hydration and improves the overall look and feel of my skin
  • I haven’t noticed the anti-ageing benefits as I’m only 26…..

Review: Chanel Vita Lumiere Aqua Foundation

Hello beauties,

Today I bring to you my review of the cult favourite, Chanel Vita Lumiere Aqua Foundation. This foundation is available at your local Chanel counter at David Jones and Myer or a Chanel Boutique. The Chanel Vita Lumiere Aqua Foundation is available in 7 shades in Australia and retails at $77 for 30ml.

I should mention I have the shade BA60 which is not available in Australia and is a tad light for me, hence why I mix with YSL Lé Touche Eclat foundation. In the States they have a larger colour range and go up to shade BA70 (from memory).

Evening Skincare Routine: November 2015 Edition

Hello Beauties!

I think I’m more of a skincare addict then a makeup addict these days, how times have changed. As much as I love skincare I try not to mix it up too often as my skin can play up. In March I brought to you my skincare routine which you can check out here. Today I bring to you my updated routine featuring more drugstore products which are surprisingly good!

This is my routine I use for hydration nights and every other night I use Alpha H Liquid Gold to get a chemical exfoliation.

To start off with I remove my makeup using this routine, click here. 


Neutrogena Deep Clean Gentle Scrub

My new go to face cleanser! I’ve lost count of how many tubes my boyfriend and I have gone through. I apply about 5 cents worth to my face and using my Foreo Luna I massage the cleanser into my skin then rinse off after a minute is over. Great cleanser at removing makeup, the beads are gentle and your skin feels clean but not stripped of its natural oils.
