Now that the weather is starting to feel a little bit warmer, it is time to shave our hairy legs and unleash a nice and smooth looking legs ready for the sun to hit! Wellington spring is absolutely intolerable, so faking that sun kissed glow is a must to conceal our very pale winter skin! Before applying our fake tan, a good scrub is a must! Thank goodness for this month's beauty bag they hooked us up with REED Orange and Poppy Seed Scrub! Hmm sounds and smells like a summer bliss! Like any other scrubs, this scrub will leave our skin throughly moisturized and silky smooth injected with uplifting aroma of ripe juicy oranges! To help us achieve that JLO glow, RED CARPET KOLOUR Body Glow comes to the rescue! It is a luminous body lotion that creates a smooth body sheen giving us that healthy youthful glow. RCK contains colored pigments which helps even skin tone, diminish fine lines/wrinkles, whilst covering age spots and blemishes. I guess it is safe to say that you can apply this product in your face too!

RED CARPET KOLOUR Body Glow 150ml (full size, RRP $49.95)

 Onto the most exciting products in this bag - the makeup! Mellow Cosmetics is designed and tested in New Zealand which is pretty awesome! I have never ever heard of the brand, until this month's beauty bag. I have to say, the quality of these two products are on point! The first product is the Baked Eyeshadow in opium which is a taupe shade with a sheen. This shade is totally perfect transitional shade for autumn/spring, paired with either a bold lip or simply your favorite nude lip! I'm surprised with how buttery and pigmented the shadow is. It also blends nicely on the lips using either your magic fingers or with a eyeshadow brush! Of course its has to go hand in hand with the Mineral Auto Liner in navy! I did swatch the liner, then tried to wash it all of by scrubbing and it stayed put! It did not claim to be waterproof or anything but it is awesome! This colored liner is also perfect in creating winged liner which is a hot trend for spring. It glides on smoothly, and guess what? It is retractable!

ULTA3 Volume & Length Mascara (full size, RRP $6.95)

The eye look won't be complete without a good mascara. ULTA3 Volume & Length Mascara completes any look with dramatically thicker, longer lashes. The brush comes in a plastic wand with tiny bristles to help coat each lashes for a fuller look. It also has a curve which will make it easier in applying the mascara. I can't say I love this mascara, but it does what it claims to do. 

Thanks for stopping by!
