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 =)

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.


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 =)

2. Do you still read fashion magazines, and if you do which is your favorite one? 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.

7. Cosmetic brand you would take to a deserted island, and why? Sunscreen.  I don’t want to be crispy and peeling.

8. Cosmetic brand you would pull the plug on? (Bury never to be seen or heard from again). I honestly don’t know about this one… because a lot of brands have BAAAAAD products BUT they also have products that are also good… So I cant pull a plug on any practicular cosmetic brand… UNLESS!! people duped them.  Then its fake.  Not cool.

9. If you could only use one makeup product for the rest of your life, what would it be, and why? Fake lashes.  They make such a difference with OR without makeup.  I love them.  I wish my natural lashes were like crazy dramatic and full. sighs..

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.

Makeup haul ^^

Hello world

Today I went shopping with the boyfriend on the hunt for a new face moisturizer that wasn’t going to make my dry spots visible. Its the worst feeling walking out of the door knowing sooner or later the dry spots are going to become very visible and that I’m going to have to whip out the mirror and my moisturizer to fix.

Every since winter this year my skin has been going crazy. One minute it’s fine with my normal moisturizer which was the “biore” and then it’s not moisturizing enough I’m getting dry patches on my cheek area =(

My bestie has been Using “cetaphil” forever and said it’s really good for an in-expensive moisturizer. (I got sick of waiting for someone to serve & help me. There was like 3 sales people working in a department store.. Seriously how annoying, so i went to Priceline which is drugstore) Also i have seen alot of youtube gurus using it as well. So I got it today. I will update u guys, but any ideas of what I should get if I don’t like?? My skin type is oily.

Another item I brought today whilst looking around in David Jones, was the “revlon – color stay whipped”. I have heard so many good views about this foundation I was really curious. It just came out in Australia. Also my Chanel Matt lumier was almost empty, it’s starting to splatter at me lol. I was a bit hesitant on buying it because there wasn’t any testers and unlike the US, once brought you cannot return if you change your mind. And that it was $34.95. Thats not cool because I’m not even sure if its the right one! I just applied it on my face before deciding to blog. Its the perfect shade!! *phew* So far it’s good and all the raves about the foundation is pretty accurate. The only thing I’m still going to have to test is the longevity. It goes on really smooth and easy.


One negative feedback. The smell. At first I thought maybe it’s my foundation brush but I smelt all my other brushes I cleaned the other day and it doesn’t smell funky. Sooooooo I think it’s the foundation. It smells like a tangy alcohol smell?? Lol

Another revlon product I got was the “Just bitten”Lipstain and balm. I hate it. I really do. It’s pretty crappy compared to the “Benefit lip tint”. Ok I love the color I got which was “passion” BUT the application was so crap I was so disappointed. It applied really well for like 2 seconds and then there was no product. My lips at that point was so uneven and ugly looking. It was like how you just eaten candy and your lips got stained by accident. I mean if that’s the look your going for then it’s the product you want. But I really wanted an even cover on the lips. I then decided to shake it a few times to see if more product was going to come out. Oh how silly of me to do that. Oh it came out. A lot. It went all over my clothes the dash of my car and even on my boyfriends knee who was driving. It stained. Argh. Annoying. Worst $17 I spent.


I also brought “maybelline babylips – lips glow” but in the lighter pink coz I loved the darker one so much. I love it. Love it so much. Best $3.50 I spent on makeup hehehe.


And lastly I got a drugstore mascara from the brand “Prestige- my blackest lashes”. I kinda just got it because I heard from YouTube guru “raeview” that it was very similar to the “lancome-Hypnose”. I like it. But I don’t know… It’s good. I think I have to use it a few more times.


Thanks for reading ^^
