Bye bye Australis palette!

Everything has to come to and end. And so does the expired makeup. After 3 years having this palette, I decided to throw it.

Still sad though because it's a pretty good palette. Consist of eyeshadow, blush, bronzer, and lipglosses. Got it as a birthday present.

Bye bye palette..

Sorry for the crappy pic. Its a quick shot before its trip to the trash can.


Yesterday drugstore haul

A package arrived to my doorstep yesterday. It contains some drugstore items and a large dose of guilty pleasure:

• e.l.f Studio Powder Brush (gonna use it for liquid foundation)
• Everyday Minerals Sample Base in Light Olive (first EDM try out, let's hope it match my skin tone)
• Clinique Lash Doubling Mascara in travel size (never tried clinique mascara before but heard good reviews)
• NYX Powder Blush in Peach (georgeus colooour)
• NYX Round Lipstick in Honey (for special occasions only, hope it won't give me any swollen lips)

The best part is, all of this cost me less than 200k idr (US$ 22). Wohooo, love drugstore makeup!

Will review the individual items later.


Burt's Bee Lemon butter cuticle cream

Having a baby gives you laughter, joy, and damaged cuticles -- from washing your hands 50 times a day.

If you have experienced a chaffed cuticle, then you know how painful it is. Feels like someone stuck a needle at the edge of your nails. In my case, I can not use any hand cream or other toxic chemical cuticle treatment on my hands as a relief, because --of course-- it could be harmful for my baby.

I wasn't aware of this product until I found a review somewhere, and apparently it's one of Burt's Bee best selling product and it's 100% natural. So what choice do I have? Bought it online from a local seller for 81.000 idr (about US$ 9). I can't wait to get my poor fingers on it as it arrive.


Burt's Bee Lip shimmer

Despite all the pretty lip colors lies out there, I found myself allergic to most of them. On almost every cheap drugstore lip glosses to high end lipstick try out, I always end up with a bitter swollen lips. I though beauty is pain ha!

Until I found this!

Made from 100% natural ingredients, this lip shimmer is a tinted lip balm with a touch of gloss (not shimmer). It is very moisturizing, and suprisingly very very pigmented. Although the color won't last you very long, maybe 2-3 hours top. And the best part is, no sign of allergy reaction occurs on my lips. Yay!
Love those natural products.

Available in 11 pretty shades, but so far I've only found 4 shades that matches my medium olive skin tone.
• Peony: a pretty nude pink, almost invisible in my lips, just a very sheer splash of color that make me look fresh. Very useful whenever I wanted to pull an innocent-nice-girl look (yea rite)
• Rhubarb: a dark pink color. I usually wear it with others cool tone color makeup.
• Fig: MLBB color! A warm earth tone red. I wear this whenever i'm too lazy to put a full makeup, because it blend nicely with my skin tone.
• Raisin: a bold berry red. My favourite! I grab this whenever I want some attention.

Left to Right: Peony - Rhubarb - Fig - Raisin

Oh yeah, I forgot to tell you that they included peppermint oil on this one. So you'll get that fresh tingly sensation when you first apply it, just like their original lip balm. I personally love it. It's just like you've eaten a mint gum and accidently licked your lips.

Price? Bought mine for US$4 each on ebay for 2.6g. So it's a bargain!
