We know so many of our customers enjoy shopping cruelty-free, vegan, and also enjoy natural cosmetics. So we've added the 'Shop Ethical' link into our primary navigation, making it easier to find these products. We've also welcomed new brand 'Faith in Nature' - a UK hair & skin brand that's been creating gorgeous natural products for over 45 years. We're crushing hard on their watermelon range, as well as their eco-friendly shampoo bars.
Continuing on the natural theme, we've added a few tinted lip balms from Burt's Bees and have a restock of that super popular watermelon balm on the way. We also have the new Freeman watermelon masks on the way - it looks like watermelon is a strong theme this New Zealand summer!
Due to popular request, we've added the LA Girl new spray range including a primer and 2 body shimmer sprays. These are an excellent dupe for the ICONIC London Prep Set Glow.
Lastly (well for now anyway!), we've added the new Fresh & Flawless Foundation and Concealers from Australis. Their Fresh and Flawless powder is our top seller in this category, and we know that the other products have been eagerly awaited.
We can't wait to show you what's coming next 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 :)

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"!

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,
