My 1st ever makeup review! Taaaadaaaa!

Just last weekend I was at the expo for work and bumped into a friend that was having a stall there and was selling makeup and clothes and etc. And I was very interested in the makeup that was being sold cos my friend said that the brand was being used by some Indonesian artistes.
And that was it.
Enough to convince me to buy it. The brand is SARIAYU. Have u heard of it? Well, it was my first time hearing about it.
So i bought some lipsticks, blusher and eyeshadow palette. Each costs $26.70 but I got a good discount!

The blusher palette. It's very small actually and there's a mini brush given but the brush is not good. The colour is pretty good as it's slightly glittery and gives you the shimmery glow. Not loving it, cos the colour doesn't really stay for long.

 Next is the eyeshadow palette that comes in 3 colours : dark bronze, pink, and off-white. All 3 are very shimmery and comes with a very weak applicator. Among the 3, white is the most pigmented and pink is the bleargh one. The colour does not really come out. The white is excellent to highlight your browbone and for the inner of your eyes. Nice. I've done swatches of the colours on my hand below.

Overall I think, it's just ok. Nothing that stops u in your tracks. As for the 2 lipsticks that I bought: No. 01 and 02. There were no samples for me to try so I just bought the 2 colours. And after testing the colours, I decided it wasn't really my type.
No 01 : pink with red undertones
No 02 : orangey nude.
Pretty hard to describe so I've made a swatch of the colours below.

So yes, since I know that I will not be using both of it, I decided to just give these lipsticks away.

All you have to do is tell me what's the makeup brand that u like and why?
Maybe, for example u love the eyeliner from so-and-so brand, cos it's good and reasonably priced.
Email to me at and don't forget your contact no :)
I'll choose the best email and pass the lipsticks to you. That's it!

And i'll be updating this post once I've chosen THAT girlfriend!


The winning girlfriend is Fatin Azizi! Congrats girlfriend! Your lippies are on the way.

Thank u to all the girlfriends who sent in your awesome entries. Unfortunately I only have a pair to give away.

My hair is a mess

That's right. My hair is in an official mess. I don't know what to do with it.
I've had short hair for so long now that I cant remember how I look like in long hair.
Plus friends have been telling me I look better in short hair. So i guess inadvertently, they're saying I look awful in long hair. Not that I get upset about it. But it's just that I feel like doing something different. And everytime I want to try to grow it out, I ended up cutting it shorter than ever.
Now every morning, I dread to think what else can I do with it.
Blow dry it? Just put on a hairband? Force it into a mini ponytail? Wear my beanie again? Put on a cap?
Seriously. This is a big bimbo dilemma.
But a dilemma nonetheless.
My hair is at it's hopeless stage right now.
As a prove:

Even my scarve can't help my hair.

This headband is a best friend during last resort moments.

I wanted a different look kan? So now, I got what I wanted. Thanks to this overgrown hair that's not here, not there, I have a different look everytime I go to work.
Sometimes, I look like a mushroom, sometimes I look like my hair has got too much current and most of the times I look like a prata head. So be careful of what u wish for.

And now, I'm contemplating to cut or not. To cut or not. And it doesn't help that I saw this old pic of VB and her fabulous short hair. I wannnnnnnt!!!!!!!!!!!

Dear Kak Victoria, I berkenan sangat dengan rambut you.

To end this ramblings of mine, here's a picture of me in my not-overgrown-hair.
I miss my old hair! Sob!
