@Shaz, I didn't have quite the experience you did as they weren't terrible for me, but I was definitely disappointed, given how good the OG hair food is.

Probably just the night cream thing for me really. Need the extra hydration in the winter but then it's too hot/humid in the summer i don't like extra face cream at night.

The foot thing at the moment haven't done much this winter. Hope to ace it in the summer as i'll want to wear open back shoes more.

A silvery grey eyeshadow with a darker grey in the crease and outer corner looks stunning on blue eyes in photos.  Browns can work, too, just make sure they're warm toned to make your eyes pop.

Stay away from any blue or green makeup in photos - somehow, it drains all colour from the skin. Avoid pink or pinky tones on blue eyes (can make it look like you've got puffy eyes or been crying).  And don't forget to check your face powder ... if it contains titanium dioxide, you might get white flashback if a flash is used.

Thanks Shaz, I will try that out :-) I hadn't planned on doing a shoot but my partners sister is a photographer so she offered and I thought that would be pretty cool.
Haha yea fingers crossed the weather is good and I don't have to postpone again because I am getting puffed and would rather not be too huge and uncomfortable lol.

I'm looking forward to the vault reopening,  been saving my points for a while now and hope to get some reviews done before then. Just missed out for the third time on a trial offer so hope I get something nice from the vault to commiserate.

Oh my heart that sounds beautiful, lisa!!

Hi ladies
I am doing my maternity shoot next weekend.  I have a burgandy lace dress and am wondering what colours you would recommend for my eye makeup?  I am going to have a play around this weekend.  I have blue eyes and black hair if that matters :-) Any suggestions much appreciated.

@Shaz, you could always try using the left over conditioner as a shaving cream substitute.
Does anyone else take on beauty routines in the winter that then go out the window come summer?

I have always been open about my struggle with what  I call 'dad feet'.  So far over winter I have kept to the absolute best routine ever looking after my feet. I am buffing, moisturing, my toe nails are polished all year round but right now, I do not have cracked heels!  And I can't show them off........

Once the warmer months kick in and I am out of hibernation, my routine comes to a halt.  Happens every year lol.

Yello ello,

Blame my babymoon for the Beauty Vault being closed for restocking.  5 months of me not updating/uploading products meant poor Pixie had quite the inventory to tackle when I decided during one of my Keeping in Touch hours that we (royal we) needed to restock!

We didn't want people seeing a goodie and buying it, only for another goodie to be uploaded a day later and them having to pay shipping twice!

The current total inside the vault has now surpassed $25k, so it's shaping up to be haul-alicious.  

We won't rule out future temporary closings, but the Beauty Vault will remain open pretty much 24/7 with restocks/new additions just being added.

We've not decided when it will reopen, it'll either be first thing, or early evening, we're just working around schedules - we like to have 2 crew members on deck...just in case we accidentally feed our Mogwai after midnight.

yay thanks Kellie!

The countdown timer at the top still says 'next vault in....' and refers to Fri 30 July.

Perhaps wording that as 'Vault reopens on....' might be better if you need to keep that widget?

And the landing page has just been updated to say that the Vault is open all year round, except for times when it needs to be closed for a restock. Thanks for spotting that!

Hopefully the vault will stay open so you can shop at a time that's more convenient for you, Silvene. 

Can someone from the beauty crew please confirm if the vault will remain open? The information on the vault page makes it sound like it's going back to the old system. Thanks!

There are a few items I'd be interested in ... Problem is Friday night is movie night in our house, so there's a big possibility that I'm either going to forget and miss the vault, or not hear my reminder go off.  

If I manage to take part, yay, if not, there's always next time.  Although, I did like being able to shop the vault whenever I needed a few items (when it was permanently open, like previous months).

They definitely are updating it with new stock that's for sure - I'm also unclear if it is going back to being permanenetly open or how it was before, but either way, there's date it reopens again anyway :) I haven't grabbed anything from the vault in  a year so have plenty of points to spend (looks like a new hairdryer is being added too!)
