Bargain FIND !!

Hello world =)

I have recently came across some pretty good makeup/everyday essentials while I was shopping for my overseas trip earlier in the year.  I was trying to save as much money and where I can to have the extra cash on the trip.

One thing that I was really surprised to find and absolutely LOVE, that was so cheap and easy to get access to, was the “Green tea” face wipes from Kmart.  You are probably thinking, yeah right/sure sure. BUT trust me guys, its pretty good for the price of $2 AUS !!!! That’s such a bargain!  I really didn’t think much about it, I was thinking, yeah this will do for when the laziness hits me and tired days from walking and exploring Vietnam.

This does an amazing job on removing EVERYTHING (with the exception of my 10 million layers of mascara, I need a bit more effort for the eyes), it does its job.  There is no dryness or tight feeling you feel after using them and it smells great. 

I’m still using it 4 months later.  No breakouts.  No nothing.  I do wear makeup on a daily basis for work as well.  I did try another “Green tea” face wipe from BIG W, but it wasn’t for me.  I hate it.  The texture of the wipes themselves were very rough and hard.  It had a burning sensation especially when I used it around my nose area and also my lips when I decide to change a different shade of lipstick.

Let me know what other face wipes I should try out.  I have tried a few, BUT maybe your favourite will become mine =)

Good morning world =)

I’ve been trying a lot of different products for the last 6 months, trying to pin point what is going to become my everyday routine.  These products above has been the ones I reach for everyday, and I’m very happy with every single one.

1) Garnier BB Cream – I have been reaching for this “BB Cream” over my other foundations because it is super light weight and gives me the coverage I need for a daily foundation.  I wasn’t really sure about getting a drug store BB cream, as I’ve heard and read from some bloggers that it’s not as great as the Asian branded ones. BUT the western companies have really stepped up their game. (I’ve also tried the Maybelline one, verdict, don’t like.)

2) Urban Decay – NAKED – need I say more?  I have both NAKED and NAKED2 and I love them both.  I like to use the shade “NAKED” as an all over the lid, and “DARKHORSE” in the outer lid to give it some depth.

3) NYX (Bourgeois Pig) – I’ve been using this blush for a very long time. I always seem to come back to it after trying others.  It really looks nice with my skin tone (SUPER fair), so it gives me the perfect rosy cheeks ^^

4) Physicians Formula (Eye Booster) – LOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE this eyeliner. If you are a fan for liners with the thin paintbrush tips, you would love this also.  It has become my holy grail!! (replacing my Dollywink)  It does say there is a serum to boost your eyelash growth, but to be honest I cant see that my lashes have gotten any thicker or longer, that’s the only false hope you will get with this liner.  Other then that, it gives the perfect winged liner and super easy to use.

5) Milani (Abstract) – I’ve only recently started to use products for my eyebrows.  I’ve never seemed to be able to find a good colour for the brows only because I was constantly changing my hair colour.  But I have kept my hair my natural colour, which is dark brown/black. And one of the browns in the palette really works well for me. Its a powder so I do use an angled brush to apply. (any suggestions? I’ve also tried the “Kevyn Aucoin” – eye brow retractable pencil, its really good but $$$ expensive)

6) Maybelline Color Whisper (Who wore it red-er) – Current favourite lipstick.  Very moisturizing.  Very smooth.  Long lasting.  Everything I would want in a lip product. ^^

I also wear mascara, but its constantly changing.  What is your everyday makeup you reach for?

Younique 3d Mascara

Hello world =)

My cousins have recently told me about this ” Younique 3d Mascara “, how amazing and wonderful it is.  To be honest, I wasn’t really interested, I was happy with my current mascara routine.  BUT being a supportive cousin, I thought why not.

I have tried something similar in the past.  I did like it but my issue with the product is that, it did take a bit of extra time in the morning for me to use it.  [Confession: I work as a dental front desk receptionist, and I do love  LOVE my sleep hahaha.  So most of the time,  I like my makeup time to be as short as possible to get to work on time.]

Pros:  SUPER LONG LASHES. no questions asked.

Cons:  Takes a bit of time.

10361057_10154202564140253_2394321701141201297_n

Overall, I really like it for weekends when I have extra time to get ready and also for going out at night.  It saves me time from trying to stick falsies on (I kind of suck at it >_____< and its time consuming if you can’t get it right the first time).  You will get compliments while using it.  I’ve been asked quite a few times.  If you guys are interested, get in contact with my cousin Kimmi =)

If you don’t, why did you stop reading them? hmmm I don’t really anymore.  Unless it’s at a hair salon/doctors/dentist surgery in the waiting room.  I stopped because I tend to just read blogs adn watch youtube videos AND just buy whatever I feel comfortable wearing and looks good on me.

Bold. Thick. Lashes

Good morning WORLD !!

About two days ago I went and got something that I swore to myself I wouldn’t ever again. BUT after my bestie got it AGAIN aswell, and told me that its completely different and so worth getting again, I decided to give it a second go. Yes. If some of you are thinking/guessing from the title, its Mink Lashes extentions.  I am suprised how many people have them now.. Is it a trend thats going to go crazy…OR its just for a few out there?

About 2-3 years ago I did have them done and yes they were so beautiful AT FIRST! hahaha about 3 weeks in as ur lashes start to grow out a little, it started to get really annoying because the base where it grew out started to drope just because the lashes were really heavy. I had one refill session done. Yes, they looked ok this time it wasn’t as natural looking. By 2 weeks in after that I hated them. I LOVE wearing eyeliner and it was such a mission to put it on and clean if off with products that don’t have so much oil just so that it doesnt weaken the glue. It stinks my eyes when I go shower if water goes through the lashes. OVERALL, my experience was horrible. My bestie ended up having to cut them off with sissors. Yes, she did. AND I looked like a man after!!! hahahaha I literally had no lashes left and it took me a month wearing fake lashes everyday until mine actually grew back. At that time I didn’t know that we were able to soak it off. (-__-)

My girlfriend put these on for me AND I LOVE THEM!!! Completely different. Much more comfortable. I found out that last time I had synthetic ones not mink. So they are much more plastic and harder to the touch, so it does make them feel heavier. With these I don’t even feel like I am wearing them. For the first 24 hours I wasn’t allowed to wet them or have a hot steamy shower (a little hard because its still cold here in Australia), just so the glue can dry. She told me they wont be fully dry until after 24 hours. So far so good. I had 2 ladies who asked me what mascara I was using to get my lashes looking long and black ^^ yay! they look natural. Anyways I will help you updated in the next couple of days how it goes.

New found LOVE.

New Love.

LOVE love LOVE.  This is my new holy grail mascara.  And the best thing is that its cheaper than the Lancome Hypnosis Drama.  YAY!  It’s a very good comparable mascara.  Still gives me volume.  Still gives me length.  And it’s as dramatic. ^_____________________^  I’m happy.  Last time I posted this, someone recommended me the Dior mascara, I’m still yet to try it.
