Touching Up My Redhead Roots

I’ve had no regrets since I became a total redhead in January when I was holidaying in Hong Kong.  If you’re in HK and you’re looking for a hairdresser in the New Territories, I HIGHLY recommend Kay from Hair Q in Tai Po Plaza who is MAGIC!  I’ve had my hair cut by him twice and it looks amazing when I step out of the salon and it still looks amazing 2.5 months later when it’s grown out with lots of lovely layers and natural volume.  Unfortunately, my hair style might still look good, but my roots were raging to be done a few weeks ago.  Not to worry as I had anticipated this by purchasing L’Oreal Paris Excellence Fashion P66 Intense Spicy Red before I hopped on the plane back to Melbourne.  Here’s how I got on…


Review of Natio Lash Definition Mascara

Natio Lash Definition Mascara

Hi Best Beauties, I’m off to Canberra today for the long Easter weekend.  I’m hoping to have lots of fun exploring this city…  I know lots of people were like “Um, Canberra?  Uh, WHY??!!”  And I say, “Why not?  We haven’t been before and I want to learn more about Australia now that I am a permanent resident here!”  🙂  Anyway, I have drafted a few quickie posts over the weekend so have fun reading them 🙂  More importantly, follow me on Twitter or Instagram to get up-to-date #CanberraGoss

Anyway, onto today’s post…

Many, many, many moons ago, I was OBSESSED with mascaras….until I realised that mascaras can only do so much for my short stubby Asian lashes!  A few months ago, Natio kindly sent me a care package and one of the goodies was Natio Lash Definition Mascara.  I’ve been using it on and off for a while now so I thought it was time to give it a review…


Nail Polish Love : China Glaze Beauty & The Beach

Happy Monday ladies!  Like OMG, I have had the most beauty tip-tastic (yes that is a word :P) weekend after attending the L’Oreal Paris & Marie Claire Beauty Workshop on Saturday and learning from the infamous Rae Morris.  And then yesterday, I had a Makeup Masterclass with Master Makeup, Dean Nixon – who was oh-so-funny!!!!  I can’t wait to gather all these beauty tips together and share them with you in a blog post… BUT the problem is – I discovered Candy Crush Saga and my life has changed.  I am UBER obsessed so the beauty blog posts may be a bit slow for the next week or two!  I must conquer it!!!!!

Anyway, luckily, I still had one unpublished post left…so take it away China Glaze Beauty & The Beach!


Review of Maybelline Pure BB Mineral BB Watergel

Another day, another BB cream.  Yes, I know there’s a new alphabet cream in town going by CC, but blame it on these words – “Japan Exclusive”.  Yes, as soon as I read that, I whipped out my Hong Kong dorrahs ($99 to be precise) for the Maybelline Pure BB Mineral BB Watergel.  You see, I am under the impression that everything from Japan is AMAZING – e.g. ramen noodles, sushi, sashimi – oh wait, that’s just food.  Okay, um, my fave beauty gadget Hitachi Hada Crie and I also like Liese Bubble Hair Color Dyes.  So I assumed that I would love this BB Watergel… (but be warned, you should never assume because you make an ASS of out of U and ME)


NEW LOVE : Benefit Fake Up Crease-Control Hydrating Concealer

Do you remember me telling you that I attended the Benefit Fake Up event a few weeks ago?  Well, I was blessed with one of these babies in the goody bag.  *squee* Like all Benefit cosmetics, Fake Up has adorable packaging and design which cannot be faulted except that this isn’t fingerprint-proof.  Anyway, it is different to all the other concealers I have in my stash…

First up, can you believe it’s the only concealer stick I own?!!  I am extremely wary of concealer sticks because back in my young days (many, MANY moons ago), the formulas of them were atrocious and they did the adjective “cakey” a lot of justice!  But Benefit’s Fake Up Concealer is nowhere near cakey – in fact, it’s the total opposite!!!
