From Shannon: "Ever since I created my own beauty brand, xoBeauty, I have had a goal to create my own eyeshadow palette. I have been working on this #heapsofsweets palette for SO LONG and I'm so happy that it is finally here! In this palette you will find the perfect blend of warm and cool tones, colourful shades and every day neutrals, a one stop shop palette for day and night.

When Tarte released their full coverage, super matte Shape Tape Concealer, the internet went crazy. People claim it's the only concealer that covers their dark circles, acne and bad choices. Makeup Revolution liked the sound of that, but didn't like the price tag so they went and created their version of the highly rated concealer. Conceal & Define was then born, and instantly received compliments on how similar it was to Shape Tape in terms of coverage, longevity and even packaging.
Revolution also took it a step further and introduced "Conceal & Define Supersize" with double the product of the original launch. The original Conceal & Define is $9.95, and their supersize is $14.95. which is still significantly cheaper than the Tarte Shape Tape at $42 a tube.
The Anastasia Beverly Hills palettes are known for having highly pigmented, super blendable shades... and their hefty price tag. It's no secret that Makeup Revolution loves to create affordable duplicates of in demand products, and their Velvet Rose palette is almost a shade-by-shade replica of the ABH Soft Glam palette. With a combination of buttery mattes and high-impact metallics, this neutral palette is a must have in anyone's collection. $76 vs $11? I know what I'm going with.
Mac have some of the most iconic lipsticks with shades such as Ruby Woo, Velvet Teddy and Diva that everyone recognizes. Most people would also consider them a bit of an investment at $40 each. Wet n Wild have come through with some extremely affordable dupes, that range from only $2.99 to $6.49 a pop!
Wet n Wild "Red Velvet" is as close to "Ruby Woo" as you can get without it being the real thing. Mac's "Velvet Teddy" made famous by none other than Kylie Jenner, is almost an identical mauve nude as Wet n Wild's "Bare it All" and the super vampy and sultry "Diva" by Mac is almost a spot on duplicate for Wet n Wilds "Cherry Bomb".
The Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation is no stranger to those who are big fans of matte, full coverage foundations. With it's smooth liquidy formula and incredibly high coverage, it's a foundation that people find themselves purchasing over and over. However at a price of $72, it's not exactly the most cost effective. So here comes the Can't Stop Won't Stop Foundation at a pretty price of $29.95. While this formulation runs a little thicker, the coverage is comparable, if not more impressive.
Now, we're not against high end makeup at all. In fact, we love to splurge on some expensive makeup every now and then, but if you can get similar quality for a much cheaper price - why wouldn't you? Let us know if you know of any awesome dupes!

The shades we'll have at Beauty Bliss:

Will they be available in your Wellington store? Will you have testers? Yes, we'll have all 5 shades in our Wellington store, but not until mid next week (approx 5th June). We'll post on our Instagram story as soon as the stock arrives.
Will you be stocking other shades? Not at this stage but please let us know if you are interested in other shades. Our customer feedback is what we use when we're making purchasing decisions! :)

That's why we're here, with this handy guide to help you figure out what The Ordinary is doing and why it does it so damn well. They have taken skincare to the next level and all it takes its a few spoonfuls of information for you to reap the benefits.
HYDRATING | WATER-BASED
You need to understand your own skins needs and concerns, then choose what will help you best. Where relevant, we’ve included whether the products are oil- or water-based, as this determines when and where you’ll add them into your routine. A simple flow of products should follow: cleansing, toning, water-based products, then oil-based products and/or creams.
Depending on your skin type and worries, be wary of mixing products that don’t agree with one another, and of the different times at which certain products should be used. You don’t have to use everything all at once (and certainly shouldn’t), because you never want to overwhelm your skin. Instead, take things step-by-step and introduce products that you feel will benefit you the most.
If you find yourself really unsure of what to do, feel free to contact us. We can figure out what you need together.
See you soon! Raashka.

Now I'm no scientist but I'm going to give you guys a slightly better insight to Glycolic Acid while still keeping it as simple as possible.
I'll start with some basics. Skin has a pH level of roughly 5.5. Anything with a pH of 8-14 is classed as an alkaline, anything with a pH of 0-6 is classed as an acid.
Most soaps and shampoos have a pH of 8-11 making them efficient at removing excess oils and sweat. Toners are slightly acidic (roughly a pH of 4) to help re-balance the skin after the use of cleansers and soaps. A healthy pH means happy skin.
This allows the stratum corneum (the outermost layer of skin) to be exfoliated to reveal live skin cells giving a fresher, more even complexion!
Glycolic acid makes skin more sensitive to the sun. You should be wearing an SPF everyday anyway but it is VERY important when using any kind of AHA's to avoid any damage to the skin.
Remember, everyone's skin is different so do your research instead of buying something just because it worked for someone else.
Till next time, Courtney xx

It also turns itself off after 30 minutes if it's not in use - a handy feature which has saved my forgetful butt a few times already!
And that's the list! Last year our Limited Edition ghds sold out in record time, so don't wait around. These ones will be gone before we know it :)

Jeffree Star Cosmetics has dropped ANOTHER amazing collection: the Blue Blood Collection. This collection includes his sixth eyeshadow palette, Blue Blood.This stunning palette is unlike anything else we stock at BB so we are so excited for it to arrive! In true Jeffree Star fashion, Blue Blood's packaging is a little bit extra (the best kind).

With it's array of cool toned blues and greens and a few nude shades to blend it all together this palette is a cool toned queens dream.

This half skull look looks super impressive, but is actually pretty simple!
1. To start, I drew a rough line over my nose and cheeks with Kryolan Clown White so that I knew how far to take my foundation and regular beauty makeup. I used clown white as it's really easy to smudge out if I make a mistake. This will be covered up later so don't stress about making it precise.
2. I then did my regular makeup on the top half of my face, using the Revolution Velvet Rose Palette to do a bold, dark smokey eye, and topped it off with some xoBeauty Cupid lashes. With all the intensity that's about to happen on thee lower half of my face, i wanted to make sure my eyes had some drama and didn't disappear into my face.
3. To start the skull makeup, I filled the lower half of my face in with the Kryolan Clown White, and set it with the white shade in my Velvet Rose palette to ensure it wouldn't slip around or mix with the gel i'll be using for my skull detailing. Using a white eyeshadow also helps with coverage, since it contains pigment rather than a translucent powder. This makes the white more opaque.
4. I used the Ebony Brow Pomade from Revolution to start drawing in the skull details. You could use a black gel eyeliner for a more intense effect, but i wanted to keep it a tiny bit softer as well as make it easier on myself to remove product if i make mistakes. Looking at a reference photo of a skull helped me figure out where to start drawing in my teeth, nose and cheek bones. The next steps are optional and require sfx products. I think it looks awesome at this point but adding in the latex and blood really takes it to a new level.
5. I wanted to look like my skin had been ripped up and was revealing my skull underneath, so for that i had to make some fake ripped skin. To create this effect, I ripped up bits of tissue, then coated the top of each piece in MakeupPlus liquid latex, and applied it over the line I drew across the centre of my face, making sure my pieces vary in size and shape as we want this to appear random. Once it was in place, I put a bit more Liquid Latex along the top to secure it. Make sure there is no latex securing the bottom of your tissue, we want this to be loose.
6. We now need to make this the same colour as our skin to create a more realistic effect. I applied a small amount of my Revolution Foundation Stick to the tissue, but this doesn't quite cut it as it's being applied onto bright white tissue, so it will appear lighter than it does on skin. To fix this, i set the foundation with my theBalm Bahama Mama Bronzer to deepen the shade so it blends in a little more seamlessly with the rest of my face.
7. The final (and my favourite) step - blood! I used the MakeupPlus Thick Stage Blood as it still runs and creates realistic looking drops, but very slowly as it is a much thicker consistency. I used a brush to apply generous amounts under the loose parts of the tissue & latex, allowing it to drip down my face.

So Revolution have done what we've all been wishing for: released a stick foundation! With a price tag that totally feels like you're saving money by spending it, what's not to love? They've successfully caught our interest, and now it's time to find out if they live up to the hype.
The Fast Base Foundation boasts a full coverage, easy to apply satiny finish that guarantees maximum satisfaction. As you can see, the shade range extends across the board - and the team has hinted to adding even more in the near future. The foundation first popped up on radars when it caused quite a stir after Instagram star Kadeeja Khan (@emeraldxbeauty) released a video of her trying it on for the first time. Now whilst a ton of products can claim to be full coverage, the harsh truth is that we won't really know until someone without perfect, airbrushed skin tries it out (I'm looking at you, Leighton Meester). Khan's video of her achieving perfect coverage with a few, simple strokes, however, had the beauty world taking a step back.
To top all of this off, Revolution have promised us that this must-have is cruelty-free and vegan. Just when we thought they couldn't possibly rope us in further! This brand certainly knows how to outdo themselves. Word on the block is that the official launch video actually cast its diverse range from browsing social media platforms. How cool is that?
The great news for you guys is that The Fast Base Foundation is en route to Beauty Bliss - and that means en route to you, too. We'll have it in store pretty soon, so if you want to grab one ASAP, sign up to our alert list below.
See you soon!

Known for their high quality makeup brushes that are manufactured in Italy, and their gorgeous false lashes, xoBeauty is a brand on the rise. We're so humbled to also be the first store to showcase this brand offline - come and visit us to see what all the fuss is about!
"The Soulmate" lashes were designed to make you stand out! They are super flirty, long, thick and wispy. These unique lashes have both black and warm brown hairs to subtly highlight your eye colour. They still appear very dark once worn though, so there are no worries about blending these in with your black mascara and eyeliner.
"The Romantic" lashes were designed to create a bit of length, and a bit of volume. They are super full but do not take over your eyes, so they can be worn day or night. Tapered on the inner corner for comfort, and finished off with a beautiful flick and curve on the 'Outer V' to elongate your eye shape. These have an invisible lash band so you can wear them without eyeliner if you wish.
These colour pair nicely, and wear great on top of an xoBeauty lip liner. It's best to avoid oily foods when wearing these as the oil breaks them down making them wear off faster. BB staff member Gemma rocks the shade "Impavid" and is also wearing Faux Mink Lashes in "Illusion"!

Cloud Nine is always a good gift idea, whether your mum wants pin straight hair or luscious curls, it has the means to make her dreams come true. My personal favourite is The Waving Wand, a matte black wand that creates anything from perfect curls to gentle waves in a snap. Cloud Nine products have built-in temperature control, a handy option that lets you find the ideal heat for your hair. They feature a mineral-infused coat, an innovation that not only protects the hair further, but leaves it looking freshly conditioned and smoother than ever. A nice little touch to top this off is the special glove included: it'll keep your mum's hands safe and sound, even if she does happen to be distracted by a sudden and dramatic emergency you have over a missing jumper. The Waving Wand also has a useful kickstand, so it can rest against any surface without damaging it. If that's not enough, the wand turns itself off after thirty minutes if it hasn't been used, which is especially useful when you've all finally managed to leave the house and inevitably start to wonder if it was left on.
The second great option for your mum (yes, I'm going to be giving you guys multiple, because I totally know how picky mums can be) is the Eye of Horus Award Winning Gift Box. Quite a mouthful, but so, so worth it. To begin with, Eye of Horus is a brand known for its attention to traditional beauty, incorporating many natural ingredients into their products (such as organic Moringa oil and beeswax), which ensures that sensitive eyes will not be bothered. This gift box includes the best of the brand: Goddess Pencil in Smokey Black, and Goddess Mascara in Black. The Goddess Pencil is a deep black, kohl eyeliner, both water- and smudge-proof, creamy and easy to apply with no parabens in sight. A personal favourite of mine, the Goddess Mascara is just as dark, free of clumping or smearing, with an hourglass brush that makes application an absolute dream. This duo comes in a custom Eye of Horus Gift Box, making it a limited edition - so don't leave this one on the back-burner for too long.
Alpha H is a celebrated brand among everyone here at Beauty Bliss - and we imagine it will be with your mum, too. There's nothing this brand doesn't do excellently, whether it's a cooling eye cream or a refreshing toner. With both the Vitamin Profiling Kit and The Essentials Collection, you'll be spoiled for choice. The Vitamin Profiling Kit features four vitamin serums (A, B, C and E), with four different uses for flexibility and range.
With these four in your mum's skincare kit, she'll have the means to tackle any issue she faces in that superhuman way only mums can. If mixing and matching isn't her forte, however, The Essentials Collection is a safe fallback. It's comprised of a Cleansing Balm, Hydration Concentrate, and Hydration Cream. To begin with, the balm is a four-in-one miracle, functioning as a cleanser, toner, make-up remover and balm, rich in essential fatty acids and rosehip oil. Next is the Hydration Concentrate, an oil honed from comforting plant oils that is made to help mature, dry and sun-damaged skin. Finally, we have the Hydration Cream, infused with sea minerals and youth-restoring peptides so it can keep skin feeling fresh and moisturized throughout the day. This set is a reliable option if you find yourself unable to choose despite all my lovely advice.
Let us know what you end up picking for your mum! All ideas are welcome below, because everyday is Mother's Day in my world and I'm always on the hunt for what to get for her next. :D
See you soon! Raashka

If you hadn't heard yet, Jeffree Star recently released his 3rd eyeshadow palette called Blood Sugar, which sold out in an incredible 3 minutes on his website! Jeffree is known for his fun and colourful makeup line, which is a best seller here at Beauty Bliss. He released this palette as part of his Love Sick collection alongside some other goodies including the Mini Red & Pink Lipstick Bundle, but we are incredibly excited to get our hands on the Blood Sugar Palette!
Since this new palette will be coming to Beauty Bliss soon, we wanted to share some information about the palette, give you a run-down on the shades, and of course give you some makeup inspo for when you pick this beauty up. This palette, along with all Jeffree's other products, is 100% vegan and 100% cruelty-free.
Let's start with the packaging. Blood Sugar is very different to anything else we've seen on the market so far. Jeffree Star says the inspiration behind this entire palette was from the medical field, doctors, dentistry and sugary sweets (of course!)
This one of a kind packaging consists of a luxurious red faux leather case similar to a medical kit. It opens and closes with a metal clasp and comes with a white sleeve over top. With shade names such as Sugarcane, Candy Floss, Prick, Extraction and Cavity, you can definitely see the inspiration behind the entire palette.
photo: @angelamarytanner Moving on to the shades inside the palette, Jeffree kicked it up a notch with Blood Sugar as it has 18 shades! They range from his incredible Matte formula, some gorgeous Metallics and even 1 pressed glitter/pigment. From a matte white, cool and warm toned browns, pops of pink and red, dark purples and more, this palette has endless possibilities.
We think this palette is absolutely gorgeous, and we cant wait to get our hands on it soon. If you're interested in being the first to hear when our stock arrives, you can join our waitlist below.

We decided to just dip our toes into this range and just get the one product, it was so hard to pick just the one but we went with the Paradise Brow Pomade. The ultra-precise slanted brush allows you to easily create the brows of your dreams, especially when used with this highly-pigmented, matte formula that glides on smoothly but is also long wearing and smudge resistant!
We're all about long voluminous lashes here so we're also looking at getting the Paradise Mascara in! The soft wavy bristle brush holds the maximum amount of formula and with 200+ bristles, will catch every lash for a dramatic effect. This volumising and lengthening mascara delivers a full lash fringe that’s feathery soft. No flaking. No smudging. No clumping. What more could we ask for from a mascara? (UPDATE: The Paradise Mascara is now in stock!)
The Infallible Pro Glow Foundation boasts up to 24 hour wear with a hydrating finish that is never dull and never greasy which is perfect for those of you who have a normal - dry skin type. This lightweight and creamy formula is a medium coverage foundation that instantly hides imperfections for a radiant complexion.
L'Oreal Paris have also introduced three gorgeous primers to the Infallible range. Primers are a must in the process of creating that perfect base and these are three i definitely want in my personal collection!
First up is the Infallible Mattifying Primer, this primer is perfect for those of you who have normal - oily skin. The mattifying priming base will help to reduce shine and prevent oil from separating foundation on the skin.
Redness be gone with the Infallible Anti Redness Primer, this primer is great for those of you that have redness and uneven skin tone that you want to balance out. Balancing pigments even you skin tone while the light green tint helps balance out redness in the skin. This primer also provides the perfect hydrating base for those with dry - normal skin.
Lastly, the Infallible Luminizing Primer, this is the one I'm most excited about! The Lumi Magique Primer has been given a face lift and it now falls under the Infallible range. Thanks to the translucent correcting pigments that help brighten and luminize the skin, this primer i like a real life filter for your skin.
L'Oreal Paris totally nailed these products and I can't wait to see what they come out with next!
Till next time,

We met the king of liquid lipsticks, Jeffree Star, and introduced ourselves as retailers of his brand here in New Zealand. He was incredibly lovely to talk to and keen to hear how kiwis were enjoying his lipsticks. We were able to give him some great feedback and let him know how excited we are about his new products launching in 2016.
I asked about his new bullet ammunition lipsticks that he's releasing next year, and to my surprise he pulled a few testers out of his gorgeous Chanel handbag to swatch on my hand. There's not a lot I can reveal except that several of the shades will match shades in his liquid lipstick range (the best ones!) and that they smell amazing. We can't wait!
We also got to meet the lovely Amy from Sugarpill (aka @shrinkle). Amy always has the best outfits and her IMATS one didn't disappoint. I was really excited about her new Pretty Poison lipsticks that were sneakily released at IMATS but won't be out officially until January. I'm now the proud owner of "Girl Crush" - a bright vibrant pink. I absolutely love it and the packaging is amazing, so as soon as these are available for us to stock we'll be expanding our Sugarpill range - watch this space.
Other highlights included Ben Nye, Makeup Forever, Dose of Colors (omg 'Stone' is my new fav!), and Morphe.
