Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in #030 Fig Jam

Makeup

prettymom • 2014-10-14 • Comments (0)

Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter was one of the most talked about product when it was released more than 2 years ago. I was really excited when it finally arrived Australia, until I saw the price tag, A$21.95. Of course stores like Priceline and Chemist Warehouse have discounts from time to time. For some reason I’ve never purchased one until recently, when all Revlon lip products were reduced to A$10 at Priceline quite a few months ago.

I know, I’m supposed to be on spending ban. But I was in I-really-need-a-new-lipstick mode and I could die if I didn’t have one! Ok, not really, but you get what I mean. :p

As usual, I limited myself to get only 1 and I chose Fig Jam, which was said to be a dupe of Clinique’s Black Honey, which I used to owned but, sadly, lost it!

Schwarzkopf Live Salon Permanent Oleo Intense in 5-86 Sweet Brown

Hair

prettymom • 2014-10-07 • Comment (1)

I’ve had several unsuccessful DIY ombre hair attempts in the past. After the previous failed attempt with a product that’s designed for ombre hair, I was going to get the same product but in different color that’s specifically for dark hair, but… you know I like to get things at discounted price, because smart tight-ass consumer do not buy things at full price when you know that they are discounted regularly. Either it didn’t happen or when it happened, it was out of stock.

I ended up using something in my current inventory that was purchased a while ago when it was discounted to A$10 at either Priceline or Chemist Warehouse.

It was my first time using hair color from this line. There are 2 things that attracted my attention. 1) The vibrant hair photos on the box. 2) It gives grey coverage with no ammonia. While ammonia smell doesn’t bother me that much, it still smells.

Life in Pictures – September 2014

Personal

prettymom • 2014-10-02 • Comments (6)

Nowadays I’m less active on twitter because most of people I follow aren’t very active over there anymore. It’s quite lonely on that realm. Anyone feel this way?

I’m more active on Instagram. There are less interactions on Instagram but it’s a different story. It’s easy to snap and upload (of course I do some extra works of putting them in grids and add watermarks in between). Besides “a picture says a thousand words”, Instagram doesn’t seem to limit text input to 140 characters only when I need to babble.

Here’s a compilation / selection of what I Instagramed last month.

Lippies

Continue to show off my love of lipsticks!

Look Good... Feel Better - Dream week - 7 days of lipstick

Earlier this month I participated on #7daysoflipsticks and had a great time looking for bold and bright lipsticks to wear. I posted about this great cause so I won’t repeat it here.

After wearing bold and colorful lips for a while, I’m now into stained lips. Stained lips look is great for those who are afraid of wearing bold and colorful lips. I’m not afraid of bold and colorful lips but it’s a nice change to look more subtle. I think it goes better with my usual minimal makeup face.

Besides, it’s spring and everything looks better softer.

September 2014 Empties

Beauty

sept 14 emties

Did the first month of spring end too soon before it even feels like a spring? Ok, we finally did get warmer on the last days of the month, but according to the weatherman the mercury will drop again.

Only 3 items this months again.

Daiso Neck Gel

Another item I’ve had for quite a while. It was put aside as it wasn’t doing anything significant but I found it on the to-be-emptied stash and decided I better finish it anyway to add to my empties list. It’s not doing anything except it feels quite cooling when massage onto the neck. Oh well, it’s so cheap, nothing to loose.
