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 =)
I’ve been waiting for these Maybelline lip elixirs to come to Australia since seeing them last year all over youtube. I have finally gotten my hands on a couple of them, and I have to say I LOVE them !!
What can I say about them… well firstly can we just admire the beautiful packaging!! Its so sleek, highend looking and.. just beautiful in general hehehe. I love how its clear packaging so you can see exactly what color it is AND it looks like a lipstick!! But its not. I love it.
The wear of these I wouldn’t say it’s long wearing BUT it does stay on for quite sometime. Depending on the shade, some does have a staining effect. It’s very comfortable on the lips. It’s not sticky and feels very light weight on the lips. For gloss, it definitely has a lot of color pay off.
If you have no idea or heard about this product… where have u been??? This is a very popular lipstick/stain. The name of the product says it all. VELVELTines. If you are looking for a longwearing and transfer proof, this is it!!
After applying this liquid lipstick, it changes into this beautiful matt velvet texture that once its on, its not going to budge (even after a big meal with friends). When I first got these, there was only 3 shades ( Suedeberry, red velvet and pink velvet), but they have recently come out with 3 more shades but on the darker side (salem, wicked and black velvet).
I have it in RED VELVET and PINK VELVET. Hands down my HOLY GRAIL lip product. I get so many compliments when wearing this product. Give it a go if you haven’t.
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.
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 =)
It has been awhile since I last posted something. I have been really busy with work and personal life. BUT I am back and I want to share with you ladies what I have been using and discovered for my lips.
I’ve spoken already about Laura Mercier lip gloss in one of my previous posts. NYX lip cream has always been something I wanted to try. But like most american products its very hard to get because we have to purchase them online AND pay for crazy postage prices. I finally decided to buy a whole bunch of things from “Cherryculture” so I was paying postage for all them products in one go, so why not. =) I LOVE IT. LOVE LOVE LOVE it. Very smooth and it doesn’t have the sticky feeling like you would with most lip glosses. I do wear it on it’s own. But when I want a little bit of a shine, I just use the LM lip gloss on top.
EOS. Nothing super great about this. I think its the packaging thats really cute and different, is where most of the hype is. It is moisterizing but its nothing any lip balm like “pawpaw” or “bertsbee” can’t do. I think its super cute and I want them all just because its cute… ^__________________________^ oh one negative thing.. I don’t really like the smell… I got the strawberry one and a honeydew one for my boyfriend and we both think they both smell a little similar with a hint of difference… if you know what I mean.
These three together has been really nice for me for everyday wear. EOS (moisture) > NYX (colour) > LM (gloss) Perfect combo! LOVE! OH! whats another nice NYX colour to try in the lip creams? or what are your fav lip combos?
The past weekend was a Long Weekend here in Australia. We had a public holiday on the Monday for “Queens Birthday”. YAAAAAAAY. It was also my “2 year anniversary” with my boyfriend =) So it was prefect timing for us to do something fun and relaxing, as we both have been working really hard and crazy hours.
We decided to have a mini getaway, that wasn’t so far away from home. We decided on the Gold Coast. And we decided to stay at…………………………………….. ” PALAZZO VERSACE”
It is beautiful. The best hotel I have stayed at. The service is great. It really does make you feel like a millionaire =) I love everything about this place. From the people to food to all the little details they put into making your stay a very memorable one.
This is the room that we got to stay in. I was expecting this. I thought it would be a very basic small one.
