Products that actually work!

I love recommendations from friends of beauty products that actually live up to their lofty promises.

Here’s some of my favourite products that ACTUALLY WORK.

(Shock! Horror!)


Seche Vite Top Coat & Base















I was late to this one. All of the world probably knows about this already. Chip-free nails that last and last.

I still get some teensy ships after a few days, that’s to be expected. But this extends my manicure for SO much longer than usual.

I got mine at Beauty Bay and the shipping was super fast to Australia.















On the topic of nails … this stuff. It really works. My nails seem longer within a few days of following the programme (a coat a day for a week)

Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliner













Apply it with a liner brush (an angled one is great) and this liner really lives up to it’s long-wearing promise.


Know of any GREAT beauty buys? Let me know!


Orjan Jakobsson – Bridal Headwear

We get oodles of emails at Swoon asking us to feature certain products and services.

At least 5 requests a day!

It’s up to us to discern what might be of interest to readers, hereafter referred to as Swoonies (or Swoonlets?) It has to be classy with a touch of unique. Quality with a wee bit of non-traditional. Beautiful with a dash of awesome.

And this stunning range of bridal headwear by Swedish designer Orjan Jakobsson is just that.

We love that girls are stepping outside of the box to wear statement headpieces on their wedding day. These delicate and feminine pieces are all handmade. They are so stunning you will want to pass them down to your daughter.

You can see more and buy the pieces HERE.
