Day cream is one of the most-used skincare products in our routine because it's an essential step — it can never be skipped! For that reason, we tend to go through a lot of it. This high turnover pulls at the purse strings but it doesn't have to be this way. There's some stellar (and arguably better) face creams under $25 that we think you should try. The most important thing? That you still apply a normal, 50+ sunscreen as well. Look no further than the supermarket or your local chemist for these budget skincare steals.
Out of all of the presents you have to buy this year, spending cash on your bestie should be the easiest. You know her better than anyone else, so much so that you know she prefers matte lipstick over sheer, and intense floral fragrances over fruity. When buying for your homegirl, think bright, fun and party-ready. We've got 10 Christmas presents she'll love.

While Spring is in full bloom, Christmas is only three months away. And you know what that means. . . party time, excellent. This month's must haves take us from skincare with super powers, to a red lipstick that you'll want on your lips right now. There's two lots of pretty rose gold packaging from the Kardashian sisters' — they have a makeup line you can buy from today — along with Rihanna's new Mac Cosmetics collaboration. Got your pen and paper ready? It's time to start a list.
We've already revealed the secret to creamy, milky blonde locks; and now we're moving onto brunettes. If you dye your hair brown, chances are you're already a lighter or darker version naturally, so all of these products will work in your favour. The trick to having enviable brown hair is the richness in colour and glossy shine you can create with proper maintenance and care. Colour locking shampoos are good, but then why go and turn your hair a weird shade of grey with regular dry shampoo? Colour depositing shampoos are also your friend, along with hair accessories that create volume. Everyone loves a bouncy brunette. . .
Fact: lipstick is fun. It can lift not only the features on your face, but your mood as well. And as much as we loved get all dark and mysterious in Winter, it's time to bust out the brights. But just two colours in particular — pink and orange. While there's no hard and fast rules for shade, fuchsia and tangerine steal the show this season. We've got your ultimate Spring lipstick wardrobe sorted (covering all finishes), just click to buy then get ready to stand out!
While you don't need another reminder it's Spring, you might need one in the product department. It's officially time to put down those thick, super-moisturising products and start to lighten things up. Not completely (save that for Summer) but just a little bit. The consistency of your beauty products right now should be medium. The POPSUGAR Australia editors' still want dewy, hydrated looks, but they don't want to overload on warmer days. Curious as to how they'll do it? Get clickin', girl.
Even though it is really hard to spell, fuchsia is the colour of the new season and if you're not keen on wearing it on your body, it's time to paint those lips. A feminine colour that suits many skin tones (in fact most!), fuchsia lipstick will brighten your complexion and make your teeth look whiter. Often categorised as a shade of pink, fuchsia is actually borne out of mixing blue and red and is closer to a shade of purple. It's also commonly called magenta. Enough trivia, though, shop the trend!
