Haul - $5 each!

My friends always tease me : "you should really get a job at priceline LOL"
It's true, I love picking up inexpensive beauty products from priceline <3 p="">
It is an eye shading brush by Red Earth. I am not sure what kind of material it is made of. I guess it is a kind of animal hair. The bristles feel very nice and full. I do think it is worth more than $5 so it was a good buy!

The bristles are so soft and tender, they remain the strength but neither too stiff nor soft. It also comes with a suede pouch.

Pupa Luminous Touch Blush 004 -  a gorgeous peachy pink with gold shimmer.
It is phenomenal and great for creating glow =)!! And this massive case contains 8g product ($5)! Gosh! bourjois blush only has 2.5g, Rimmel blush trio has 4.5g!
8g = never going to hit the pan LOL

Diva Accessory (I) - Pixie Connector Ring

Connector-ring is so popular in US this year.
But it is pretty hard to get one in Australia unless you are willing to pay much for it.

I eventually got my one from DIVA, well, a local jewelry store.
I didnt get it when I first saw it. Then I went to Diva again but it was gone >0!
So I just bought it directly when I found it again =)
Its not really expensize, approximate AU$15 =P!

it has "Pixie" and a little elf. Pixie loves pixie ring =D!

Even the size is actually a bit larger for me (I got small size), I still love it.
Isnt it so cute with my honey Alex (L) =D!

OPI and Essie haul + "I'm not really a waitress" swatch

After hearing so many positive comments of OPI and Essie, I ordered a few nail polishes on EBAY. The RRP in Australia is $20 per bottle... The price on Ebay is far cheaper than getting them from counter. I really enjoy this haul and love these polishes so much!!

From Left to Right

Essie 'Lily Pond'
an amazing carnation pink color and quite opaque. Unfortunately, the formula sucks and a bit stringy. It is so hard to paint the color on nails evenly and perfectly.

Nail Tek Intensive Therapy 2
Actually I was going to buy the Foundation from Nail Tek but I picked up the wrong one... Whatever ><... I used it as a bast coat and it dried on my nails quite rapidly. The following nail polish color stays on well. So it works well on being a bast coat =) My nails don't really have serious problem, just always split when I try to grow them longer. Hopefully this product can help =)

OPI I'm not really a waitress
It is a lovely vibrant red color with shimmer. Before I got it, I read some reviews online and lots of people complained it did not suit 'yellow skin undertone'. As a asian, I believe this opinion is pretty much one of the worst. But now, I feel lucky I ignored those comments since I really love this color and work quite well for me. I got quite a lot of compliments about it =)


OPI Dulce de Leche
a light peachy brown color and Dulce de Leche is definitely a lovely color. The formula is great and really easy to apply it evenly on my nails.

Where I got it?
