| Wishlist Wednesday #3 |

Hi everyone,

It has been a while since I have posted a Wishlist Wednesday hasn't it? I have a forever growing list of beauty products that I am wanting to procure, I even had a dream about Embryolisse Hydrating Face Cream the other night (much to Mr W's amusement). Without further waffling on here are just a few of the beautiful products I am currently lusting after!

Happy reading!

 yours truly,

Enabler x

Revlon states their Just Bitten Kissable™ Balm Stain "gives softer, smoother lips with a perfect flush of colour that lasts hour after hour." 

After swatching four of my favourite colours; Lovesick / Smitten / Sweetheart / & Honey on my hand in-store I found this claim to be right on! The next day I still had the colour stained on my hand *gasp* Therefore, I am taking this as a sign that I need this product in my life. I'm always a fan of long lasting lips that don't need continual touch ups during the day.

The gel formula comes in a range of vibrant shades that match any look or mood.

I'm particularly drawn to the pink shades in the middle. Loving 

Lovesick / Smitten / & Sweetheart

PRICE: AUD$17.95 AUD (Priceline)

Over & over again I hear of this foundation as taking on a HOLY GRAIL status! Thus, Estee Lauder's Double Wear Foundation has made it onto my Wishlist Wednesday.

  • 15-hour staying power. Flawless all day.
  • long-wearing makeup, looks natural through heat, humidity, nonstop activity. 

  • Won't change colour, smudge or come off on clothes. 

  • Feels lightweight and comfortable.
 Recently a good friend of mine starting using Double Wear and she loves it! I'm sold!

Have you tried Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation? 
What did you think?


I don't often go a day without wearing pencil eyeliner. In fact, I feel a little naked without it to be honest. I've read great reviews about the Rimmel Scandaleyes range & I am loving the liquid eyeliner I'm currently using from the collection too. 

This product is waterproof & is stated to "glide on effortlessly without dragging on the delicate eye area, lasting up to 12 hours wear".

"Long lasting, moisturising formula. Dermatologically and Ophthalmologically tested. Safe for contact lens wearers."

PRICE: AUD$8.50 (Priceline)

 This eau de toilette has top notes of Fuji apple, a heart of cherry blossom and a base of 

sandalwood, hinoki wood and fruity musk. I am a big fan of musky rich scents with notes 

of floral. I've smelled Japanese Cherry Blossom in store & it is heavenly!

  • Delicate floral fragrance 
  • Light eau de toilette  

PRICE: AUD$31.95 on SALE down to 18.95 (BodyShopAU website)

This is top of my list for the cooler months of the year (which are quickly approaching us here in Australia). This product is great for softening hard skin all over the body, especially cuticles. 

LUSH writes, "we made Lemony Flutter to soften your cuticles; it's our thickest cream out there. It's so good at softening your cuticles and nourishing your nails."

PRICE: AUD $15.50 (50g) LUSH online/instore

My MOST lusted after product would have to be BIODERMA Crealine H20 Solution 

Micellaire! Much raved about amongst the beauty community, but I do wonder if there is 

too much hype for this 'Holy Grail' product? Let me know your thoughts in the comment 

section below.
"Bioderma Crealine H₂O is a very gentle fragrance-free micellar solution that cleanses 

impurities and removes make-up while respecting the skin’s natural balance."

Features and benefits:

- Soap-free, fragrance-free, alcohol-free, hypoallergenic

- Face and eyes even waterproof mascara

- One bottle sold every 6 seconds in the world

PRICE: $29.95 (250ml)

 What's on your Wishlist Wednesday? Or any day of the week for that matter :)

Profound Feline is just 2 followers away from reaching a very special milestone. It would mean the world to me if you clicked that little follow button in the sidebar on the right!

                                                    Have a beautiful day!

Hi everyone,

HAPPY FRIDAY!!!! Extra happy for some as it is a long weekend due to the Adelaide Cup on Monday *cheers*

Just a quick post today in the continuing 'Fanciful Friday' series on 'Vintage Cosmetic Advertising'. 'Fanciful Friday is a series where the imagination and fantastical whimsy of beauty is explored & shared.

I have discovered so many glamorous vintage cosmetic advertisements lately, I just had to share the beauty.
Today's post features the brands: Yardley of London / Maybelline / Max Factor & the most darling of all, Old South Toiletries. 

Old South's tag line of 'The Romance that Lives Forever' conjures up feelings of femininity, glamour & that Southern old world charm. I can just imagine the intricate packaging and beautiful scents of the Old South Toiletries whist they sit proudly upon the vanity table in a Southern Plantation Manor House. 

Can't you? 

Aren't they just darling?! 

I hope you enjoyed today's post! 

Happy Fanciful Friday & try to put a little glamour into your weekend

| Empties of Late #1 |

Hi everyone,

Lately I've discovered that I love love love reading other bloggers 'Empties' posts so I thought why not try my hand at it. Before purchasing new products in my beauty arsenal I usually do a fair bit of research online.

Please tell me that you do the same too!!! (Or I will feel like a creepy internet beauty product stalker)

I've found that reading the opinions of others does give me a good indication of what to expect from a product. But I do suppose this can't be said for all product purchases ;)

I hope my reflections upon these products may enable help you in your next purchasing decision! 

  • GARNIER BODY Intensive 7 Days Soothing Lotion 'Anti-dryness Honey' (400ml)
  • NATURAL LOOK 'Movie Tone Hues' Interval Colour Refreshment Silver Screen Ice Blonde Conditioner (375ml)
  • GIRLZ ONLY HAIRCARE Dry Shampoo 'Dawn 'til Dusk' (150ml)
  • GARNIER Deodorant Invisi Mineral 48hr Non-stop (150ml)

GARNIER BODY Intensive 7 Days Soothing Lotion 'Anti-dryness Honey' (400ml)

This product smells heavenly and applies to the skin like a dream. I became addicted to this lotion and was sad when our love affair came to an end. I made the decision to purchase the peach variation of this product recently and although nice, it just doesn't compare.

Price: AUD $7.49 (Priceline) I got mine on sale for $3.49 at Big W

Repurchase? YES! Definitely!!!!!

Rating: ★ / 5

NATURAL LOOK 'Movie Tone Hues' Interval Colour Refreshment Silver Screen Ice Blonde Conditioner (375ml)

I found this product did exactly what it stated on the packaging, a refreshing change for once. It counteracted & neutralized any unwanted yellow gold/brassy tones in my colour treated blonde hair. The product also made my hair super soft, and with shine and body. Win!

Price: AUD $11.95 (Hairhouse Warehouse)

Repurchase? Yes! An amazing product that keeps the tone of my blonde tresses in check.

Rating: ★ / 5

GIRLZ ONLY HAIRCARE Dry Shampoo 'Dawn 'til Dusk' (150ml)

For what Dry Shampoo does for your hair, this ticks all the boxes. It comes in numerous scents ranging from fresh and zesty to more floral notes. Recently they have repackaged the product with variations aiming at brunette hair types and people wanting to achieve XXL Volume (that's me!). Great product and with such a low price point I always buy these babies two at a time.

Price: AUD $1.85 (Target)

Repurchase? Yep! In fact I purchased the new repackaged product in XXL Volume last week. Trialing has begun and I think this product may feature in an upcoming favourites post.

Rating: ★ / 5

GARNIER Deodorant Invisi Mineral 48hr Non-stop (150ml)

The packaging claims special anti-perspirant technology that helps reduce white marks on skin & clothing, even black garments. As a girl who probably wears a little too much black I found this product lived up to its statements. It also had a pleasant floral scent which I appreciated. Although, I'm still not sure it would hold up for 48 hours, and I don't want to be the one to test that.

Price: AUD $5.49 (Priceline) In my opinion it's a little bit pricey so I usually wait for a good special

Repurchase? Yes, I would. It did the job & I am always attracted to Garnier packaging. I go weak at the knees for pretty packaging & functionality.

LUSH Fresh Handmade Cosmetics Tea Tree Water Popular Toner (100g)

My first purchase of a toner from LUSH and I was quite impressed. I chose the Tea Tree Water Toner as I have troublesome combination/oily skin. I found the Tea Tree extremely soothing yet refreshing for my skin. I used it in my nightly cleansing routine but also as a 'pick me up' spritz throughout the day. I'm not sure if it improved the state of my skin, but I thoroughly enjoyed using this product.

Price: AUD $7.95 (LUSH)

Repurchase? Yes,'s a good product but I am tempted to try other LUSH toners available, including the LUSH Eau Roma Water to nourish the skin.

Rating:  / 5

BUTTER LONDON Powder Room Acetone Free Lacquer Remover (2fl. oz.)

I think maybe I was expecting too much from this nail polish remover because of the brand, Butter London. Don't get me wrong, it did the job and I like that it is Acetone Free, but that's where it ends. 

Price: AUD $14.00 (Online purchase -

Repurchase? No. Liked the product, but as I received it as a part of a gift pack I probably wouldn't go out and repurchase this as a stand alone product.

Rating:  / 5

RIMMEL LONDON Glam'eyes Day 2 Night Mascara with a 2-IN-1 Magic Cap (9.5ml)

I remember that I thought this product was the 'bees knees' when I first made purchase! To be honest, I think I may have been caught up in the gimmicky packaging. Overall, it was a good mascara that did a fair job at lengthening and volumising my lashes.  

Price: AUD $16.95  (Priceline / Target)

Repurchase? No. It seems like every week there is a new MUST HAVE MAGICAL MASCARA and I hope to try them all. Therefore, I would probably explore other mascara's rather than repurchasing.

Rating: ★ / 5

MAYBELLINE Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Treatment Concealer with Goji Berry + Haloxyl (0.2fl. oz.)

I love this product! The concealer is creamy yet soft under the eye and does not settle into fine lines. Even the much talked about (negative & positive) applicator sponge is actually very effective for 'application on the go'. Although, I am not sure how well this product would work on very dark under eye pigmentation.

Price: AUD $18.95 (Priceline / Target)

Repurchase? Yes! I have repurchased!

Rating: ★ / 5

RIMMEL LONDON Lasting Finish Nail Polish 030 Dancin' Queen (8ml) 

A decent nail polish with ease of application, not much more you can ask for. It lasted a maximum of 3 days before chipping occurred, not bad. 

Price: AUD $5.95 (Priceline)

Repurchase? No. Although I liked the product / colour I like to try different brands to find the perfect red nail.
