Dove Foaming Make Up Remover

Not long ago, I decided to take the plunge and buy a proper makeup remover because my method of just cleansing my face several times was time-inefficient and just wrong.

It didn't help that my face looked like a prune afterwards.

After a while, moisturising seemed futile as well. So, during one of my many Priceline visits (I think it's probably one of my favourite stores in the entire world) I did the unthinkable. Well, not really, but it adds effect.

I love it. I think it's one of those products that you can just keep repurchasing and repurchasing. For $10.50, I think it'll last me a while, although probably not that long considering I do wear make up quite often.

Revlon ColorStay Mineral Finishing Powder in Brighten

It's been an extremely long week. I was at the AMSA (Australian Medical Students Association) convention on the Gold Coast. It was such a hectic week, but the best week of my life. Really, it was.


All actions have consequences. I have been unofficially diagnosed with conventionitis (yes, ladies and gentlemen, it is actually a thing) and PCD (post-convention depression). Both are legitimate diagnoses. Promise.

Anyway, shortly before I left, I got this little beauty in the mail.

The bottom line? I love it.

But please excuse while I have my usual banter. I really hope that it's not too overwhelming and redundant for you all.

Where do I even start? My mind is a mess and my sickness is taking over my own capacity to think. Euck. Luckily I'm still on holidays. Man, that'd suck. Imagine that. Having convention and then uni straight after.

I don't even want to think about that.

Shu Uemura Liquid Eyeliner Pen

Today, I share with you my current and HG eyeliner. If there were only one product I had to take with me from home, this would be it.

But not really.

Why? Because I don't need to. The finish is flawless, there is no smudging, it's quite water (and scrub) resistant and the packaging is excellent. Oh, and it's refillable, so it's also extremely practical and in the long term, pretty economic I'd say.

Shu Uemura products are known for their quality, and this is no different. My first purchase back in 2007 was a pair of false eyelashes and the glue, and they lasted brilliantly, until someone came over to my house and decided to (accidentally) rip them.

That was, indeed, a very sad moment.

I have always been an avid fan of liquid eyeliners. I guess I haven't hopped on the gel eyeliner bandwagon.. yet. As far as I'm concerned, liquid eyeliner is my liquid gold. Maybe in the future, when I'm bothered enough to buy a proper brush and the MAC Fluid Liner or BB Long-Wear Gel Liner, I'll think otherwise, but I'm still at the experimental stage.


I just can't be bothered. I've hardly enough time to maintain a blog, let alone time enough to do most things that I want to do.

All excuses aside.

This is a freaking awesome eyeliner.
