I always thought Kajals come in black only. While browsing for Kajal on eBay I came across a number of listings showing vibrant colors. The price was under US$3 at the time for 6! So I thought, why not?

The eye pencils is nicely packaged.

If you look close enough you probably see 1 missing. No, it’s not the seller’s fault. I took 1 out to have a look and misplaced it. I still can’t find it.

Product description says it comes in 6 different colors. No. There were 2 blacks. The green one went missing, so now I ended up with only 4 colors.

What’s exposed is the amount of product you get. Nothing to twist it up or down. And hence you need to be careful when placing the cap on and off.

One thing I try to do returning from hiatus is to update at least once a week. I failed. There are a few drafts in the work but lacking photos.

I have no excuse since I have a little photography corner setup that takes care of ‘no sunlight’ days. Blame it on my insomnia. Blame it on my dry lips. Blame it on my bad skin…

Putting the excuses aside, I decided to compile some photos from my Instagram for the last 2 months. Feel free to follow me and stalk bits of my life. :)

Lippies

You see lots of my lips on Instagram. It’s no secret that I love lipsticks. Since I don’t wear makeup much nowadays my lips becomes the only part I can show off.

I was quite excited to see Revlon introduced Matte Balm into its jumbo lip crayon family. I love the convenience and ease of use of jumbo lip crayons and I used to live in matte lip era and loved everything matte. It took me quite a while to accept glossy lips trend. But after so many years seeing shiny lips all over the place, I’m delighted to see various brands coming out with matte lip products.

Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm #225 Sultry

Revlon’s Colorburst Matte Balm is said to be infused with triple butter complex of shea, mango and coconut butter and gives a burst of matte color with a balm-like feel.

Retailed at A$17.95, I got this from Chemist Warehouse a few months ago when it was 50% off all Revlon products.
