Hey Everyone,

Honestly, I’ve been on a hiatus, a willing makeup ban, for the past few months. I never really understood my hiatus and I blamed it on the fact that I already had enough makeup which isn’t a familiar excuse to be made by a beauty blogger. However, when the blow of assignments hit, I found myself more ways than one finding myself at Priceline time and again. I think buying makeup is ultimately thereapeautic so my wallet can’t thank me when I’m stressed out.

Priceline is basically the Australian drugstore. Think of a hub of drugstore makeup – you have Maybelline, Almay, Covergirl, Loreal, Revlon, Rimmel, Max Factor, Sally Hansen, Prestige, and aussie brands like Face of Australia and Australis. Feuled by my hectic uni schedule, I gave myself a reason to buy makeup based on the fact that I’ve lived in Australia for the past two years but I haven’t yet tried any Face of Australia or Australis products. I know, shame on me. So here we go, the fruits of the haul, and I have a few more up my sleeve in the coming weeks. Enjoy!

Hey Everyone!

I’m finally back in Singapore which means that I’m back to my default state – being a blogger. About a month ago, I did a swap with the lovely Eliza who runs a blog herself – (www.beautyjunkie.onsugar.com), you should totally check her out and tell her I said hello! This is exciting stuff. My first ever swap and when I opened Eliza’s package, I was taken a back! I love every single thing! I initially met Eliza on twitter and I met up with her on my last holiday back to Singapore when we decided to do a makeup swap! Let’s open the box and see what’s inside!

Hey Everyone!

Honestly, I probably belong to the category that has never fully understood the BB cream craze. It seems like these well sought after make-up products have sprung up everywhere in Singapore and even foreign brands like Maybelline and Bobbi Brown have created BB creams to suit their Asian patrons. However, these creams that are offsprings of Papa Foundation and Mama Make-Up base are nothing to scoff at.

Hey Everyone,

I don’t know about you but crazy as this sounds, I’m getting bored of higher end brands. I shouldn’t say that too soon I reckon but ever since I’ve caught myself falling in love with drugstore foundations and mascaras, I’ve been putting my foot down on unexplored drugstore makeup territory. Trust me, my wallet is thanking me too.

Target Australia and Woolworths were selling all of their Covergirl products at 50% off. Yes, half off. I pretty much went crazy and then with the Maybelline Dream Mousse range on my wish list, I picked up a few of those too. Here’s a haul of the products and my first impressions.

Hey Everyone!

I’ve had a horrible urge to shop lately and not the kind of shopping that can be quelled by a credit card or a web browser either, the kind that calls for paper bags and more than a bit of immediate satisfaction. So today was shopping day and knowing me, I was prepared to walk away from this day empty handed as I often do but as I dug through my bag, I came across a 10% LUSH voucher. Recently turned LUSH addict, I merrily walked to the store knowing that this was my chance to satisfy a much abandoned urge.

I tried mostly all the products I got from LUSH (not very many) tonight. Yes, I did wash my hair with beer, slathered seaweed all over my face and then painted it over with a face mask that made me look more Smurf than human being. You gotta love LUSH right? Thus, I’ll give a few of my own first impressions of the slightly unconventional bath products I’ve added to my collection today. Plus, I have a little surprise from KIT and at the end of this post, I’ll quell your jealous smirks and tell you all about roseannebeauty mail order as well!

Hey Everyone,

I’m probably known for having close to nil in the winning department. No matter how many times I recite my number, I will probably never win that lucky draw. Probably one of the first weeks back, the lovely Sarah Chaudry (It’s her birthday today!! Happy Birthday Sarah!) (www.facesbysarah.onsugar.com) contacted me to see whether I wanted to join an ambush makeover and that I could win $1000 worth of M.A.C! I dismissed the chance of winning anything since I don’t normally do and enjoyed the experience.

So, when I picked up my phone that morning at the office, I was totally caught off-guard. I had won $1000 worth of M.A.C. After five minutes trying to register just how much $1000 worth of M.A.C was like, I quickly tweeted and facebooked my gittery feelings away.
