Ever since my last run in with snails ended up in greasy tears I had simply placed all snails into the ‘just won’t work for me’ category. For awhile I was happy without snails, then the Cosrx Advanced snail 96 mucin power essence became a thing on the /r/Asianbeauty subreddit. My curiosity was piqued – the ingredient list was simple and clean but it wasn’t until I needed something extra to boost hydration that I gave this any serious thought.
I ended up purchasing this in my most recent RRS haul (it was about $11USD without shipping) and since using it, I can honestly say that it has become indispensable to my routine.
So I’ve been looking for a wash off mask that is somewhat moisturising for awhile and then I came across this from Mizon and tried to find more information on it. Well, there was absolutely nothing. So I did what any reasonable person would do and straight out purchased it. Was it a good decision? Probably not but poor decisions aside I have taken one for the team and here is more information on this wash off mask.
It’s been just about forever since my last post here but Uni is just crazily busy and somehow as a postgrad student even without anyone telling you what to do, there is always more to do. Well, as far as excuses go this one is fairly standard! But enough of that, today I bring you the Missha Magic Cushion review! This has gotten mixed reviews around the blogger-sphere, some like the cushion and some don’t – all in all, a very broad spectrum of opinions (also probably reviewed to DEATH) and today I’ll be throwing my lot in as well.

This is a little deviation from my usual blog post but when Kerri of Beauty & Things offered Aussie bloggers a chance to try and review umbrellas that she and her husband sold and I was too excited to pass up the opportunity. For one, a few months before I knew she was running Everyday Umbrella, I already had an umbrella from her site pinned to my pinterest wishlist (this one). Sadly I am not going to review this umbrella as I had already purchased a mini umbrella from ASOS so I elected to give the full sized umbrellas a try. For this, I selected the full sized black stripes umbrella. The umbrella had even arrived the day before one of the raniest days in Sydney so I got to test it out in full rain conditions!

I bought these lipsticks a while ago actually as I wanted a really glossy, moisturising lipstick. I had purchased these lipsticks from Jolse as they have a $3 sign-up bonus and I went with #2 Vanilla Pink and #10 Latte Brown.
Just by Googling this product I notice a lot of people have purchased #10 Latte Brown and I can see why! It is a very flattering nude shade and it has the MLBB (my lips but better) quality. I purchased #2 Vanilla Pink as well since I also wanted a pink shade that wasn’t too pale (and I needed a $20 minimum to use the $3 coupon).

I’ve been doing some thinking and there have been several things I wished I knew when I was 18. Things relating to makeup and skincare that I had no clue about and basically messed around a little bit too much with my face, resulting in pimples and closed comedones galore. I’d like to share these things with you, and if you would be so kind, I’d also love to hear about the things you wished you knew when you were 18!

Hey guys! It’s been a longgg silent month. Not sure if anyone still follows but a combination of family obligations and last minute work related tasks have really, really delayed all reviews. That said, I hope everyone had a safe and happy Christmas. Just waiting on the New Year to bring on 2015!
While waiting for said year to come in, I have here a brand new review! I was sent these nail polish strips from OMG Nail Strips and honestly, I’ve never been totally sold on nail strips. I’ve tried the Sally Hansen nail strips once and didn’t really like the effect it had but since the kind folks at OMG Nail Strips sent me these to try I decided to give nail strips another shot.
On to the review!
I first saw this beauty in a friend’s beauty area and the moment I swatched it I realised I had to have it. There was no way around that. Unfortunately, living in Australia I get to pay this thing called the ‘Australia Tax’ whereby everything (I mean everything) gets a 50-100% price inflation. Why? I don’t know. Maybe it’s because we live in the biggest hole in the Southern hemisphere and it’s a pain to ship anything here.
Fortune shone upon me though, as my parents were soon to depart for a very long, very expensive and very exciting Europe trip. I managed to get my mum to snag me the Full Exposure palette while she was in London for £38? I can’t quite remember the exact price but I think it was close to that price. Since she was a visitor she also managed to get 20% off VAT and the whole thing ended up to be somewhere around AUD$56 – a whole $10-$15 cheaper than if I bought it here. That, is what we refer to fondly as the ‘Australia Tax’. /backstory
Any how! Let’s keep this rolling – on to the review!
Ahh… And the line up of mediocre Its Skin Babyface products continue. This time, I bring you the blusher from the Babyface product line up! I bought the Pure Lavender colour as I don’t have any purple blush and figure it’d be a good place as any to start collecting blushers.
Ah, another Its Skin – Babyface product. This one wasn’t that much of a fail when I compare it to the BB cream, it is still irresistably cute but this time I feel that it actually does what it says on the bottle.
