That was my ever-so-witty title and play on words for “Update”. Yes, dear readers, although I have a few drafts dying to go live, I thought I would give you a brief update on the 3 things that little old beauty blogger me got up to recently in the beauty blogging world :-
1. L’Oreal Paris New Products Launch
I was seriously impressed with the exciting new anti-ageing (yes, I NEED IT!) Revitalift Laser x3 range. I am a lover of all things anti-ageing but some procedures, i.e. actual laser treatment, is not possible for me as I have a LOT of debt (and I have totally gone into overdraft mode in one of my bank accounts but that’s another story for not-a-blog!) Anyway, this range has promising results and I cannot wait to test it on my aged 32 and a half face!
And like, ERMAGHERD!!! *squee* The make-up!!! New releases in Australia include L’Oreal Shine Caresse (yes, they are out in shops now in Australia! I swatched the ones I bought in HK here) and mascara and nail polishes. After the success of L’Oreal’s first BB cream, they have more products in the Nude Magique range including CC Cream (read : what are CC creams?), L’Oreal BB Blush (you will LOVE this!) and L’Oreal BB Powder.
Once I have had time to play with all the products mentioned, expect photos and reviews and swatches galore 🙂
2. Benefit Cosmetics Fake Up Launch
Fake Up is a unique hydrating crease-control concealer – perfect for under your eyes to conceal dark circles and fine lines, I tell ya! I got to meet a real-life Dr Feelgood (which incidentally is the 1st Benefit product I ever bought; reviewed here), hang out with my awesome Sydney beauty blogging friends and drank apple Martinis served by topless men with 6 packs (shh, don’t tell my hubby!).
Unfortunately, due to Melbourne golf-ball-hailstone-storm, Val (AKA Ponikuta the beauty blogger) and I got stranded in Sydney and suffered severe sleep deprivation – perfect opportunity to put Fake Up to the test 😉
3. Top 5 Clinique It Girl 2013 Finalist
Yes, me!!! One of the 5 finalists to become Clinique It Girl 2013!!! Can you believe it? No, me neither. But yay! I’m up against tough competition though – all the other 4 girls have only just reached their 20’s! Youth is on their side!!! But I have my fingers and toes crossed.

YOU CAN VOTE MORE THAN ONCE AND AS MANY TIMES AS YOU WANT!!! Now that’s a gamechanger!!!
Anyway, if that wasn’t a busy enough week for me, I also dyed my roots. I think I got everywhere – bathroom sink, mirror, floor, my face, ears, scalp and right eyelid – stained red EXCEPT my roots!!! DOH!!!! And yes, I took photos so you can laugh at me when I blog about it later 🙂 I hope this week is just as exciting but let’s try and get Monday over with ASAP! Monday-itis is not my BFF!
What did you get up to last week? Tell me anything and everything.
