Well, I here I am again - my one true love has left... for the 26th time! History repeating and all, I knew this day would come. But I'm still pretty devo tbh...
So long summer. We had our fun, but I s'pose I must move on, seeing as you've already gone. Let me just settle into some warm and fuzzy knits, sidle up to a hot chocolate and reminisce on the good times, while trying to focus on the positives...
Well, AT LEAST with the changing of the seasons, it's a great time to think about your beauty routine and where it can improve!
Of course, to do so, you'll need some killer beauty advice. Inspiration always comes from others - be they makeup lovers, skincare devotees, or hair-care worshippers!
With this in mind, we’ve curated our ‘Beauty Diaries’ March box, designed to help share some of our favourite products, as well as highlight some of the best – and sometimes interesting – beauty secrets of the stars, the influencers and of course, regular and gorgeous women just like you! Because some beauty secrets are too good to keep to yourself!
With this in mind, we encourage you to share your beauty tips with us too. Upon unwrapping and trialing your March items, we'd love for you to share your thoughts, tips and pics of how you use them with us on facebook, twitter and instagram, as well as by filling in our beauty feedback surveys. They are new and improved, so we can get a better idea of what you are enjoying and what you’d rather see.
Another improvement? Our gorgeous new packaging, fully debuting this month!
We’re sticking to the natural and organic feel of our original box with our new outer or ‘shipping’ boxes. Then, unwrap to find out signature bb blue inside, proudly sporting our new logo!
What do you think? We must admit, we are slightly in love!
What else must we divulge that we are we falling for this ‘fall’…
First off, ModelCo Party Proof lipsticks. There is a shade to suit everyone, so pucker up and get ready to start doodling your signature all over your diary with ModelCo as the surname - they are so good, you'll want to lock that baby down. Mrs. Lauren ModelCo... sounds pretty good right??? Best of all, everyone gets one this month. Missed the sneak peek? Click here for more. And speaking of signatures, remember, be sure to try your lippy out before skipping it, if it's not your 'signature' shade. I rather anxiously reached for the darkest colour on offer, and really liked it once on. Yes it took some getting used to (read: running to the restrooms on a girls night out to keep checking it still looked ok!) but ultimately, I'm now loving it. See below - it's the 'Incognito' shade.
Speaking of writing down your crushes, with the intention of no one ever, EVER reading them - have you had anyone break into your diary and read your innermost, super private thoughts? I have, when I was 16… and I lost it! However, over-sharing is now one of my biggest character traits (or should that be flaws?) so perhaps this shaped me into the Ed I am today? Either way, I bared and shared all when it came to a well-known but often-queried hair care product. Some of you appreciated my frankness and others not so much. But do know, I didn't mean to offend and just wanted to point out that I really DO use said product, and have thus far enjoyed my beauty experiences with it. More here.
Another secret I’m spilling? My hate-hate relationship with acne. The telltale hormonal spots around my chin each month are one of my worst beauty enemies, so I was thrilled to chat to Dermalogica ‘Clear Start’ Education manager about all things acne and how to help yours. You can get the full scoop hereand trial each of their items in this handy travel pack (also a steal at just $45!).
One more thing to give you a hint on? As a teen I loved sweet fragrances, so I was thrilled to see the Thierry Mugler Source - Alien Eau de Parfum in some of this months' boxes! It's a more grown up version of the sweet scents I used to love so much!
For the top picks of others, in the coming weeks, we also have a few other well-known lasses stopping by to share their beauty musings, so stay tuned sticky beaks!
Something else we'll be sharing are some insider, ‘behind the scenes’ bb info over the next few days, so be prepared to read up on your fav beauty box (if we do say so ourselves!)
Of course, if you aren't a member, you can still sign up for March - but hurry! Our first shipment is due to go out this week, and we are close to selling out!
You know you want to...
So maybe this lack of summer thing won't be so bad afterall?
We hope you learn a few insider tips and tricks and enjoy your March bb! See you same, place, same post next month! - Lauren
