Quick life update: yours truly might be a bit slow to blog in the near future (but I’ll try my best, so hang with me, please). I’m fine and healthy, thanks for asking. But when they said that life can change in the blink of an eye, they are not kidding. What you thought you would do for the rest of your life, might not be. And what you thought would not happened in a zillion years, might be. No worries, mine is going to the right and steady directions. I took a leap of faith, exiting my freelance life to go back to corporate life. May the force be with me, and with you who also experiencing this in 2022. We can do this!!! Please follow me on my instagram for latest updates on life and such.
Now, let’s get on with the haul, shall we?
MAYBELLINE LASH SENSATIONAL SKY HIGH MASCARA
Not available officially in Indonesia yet (hopefully soon), so I bought this from a trusted online shop. Yes, they win again at this mascara. I believe they have two versions: Waterproof and Washable. Mine is the Waterproof ones.
PRICE IDR 185K
EMINA BARE WITH ME MINERAL MILD FOUNDATION
This is a local brand targeted for teenagers, actually. But I’m impressed that they have mineral foundation. I rarely wear foundation these days, but if I have to, I’d prefer something like this, mineral (to avoid clogged pores) and light ones. Since it’s local, of course it’s super affordable.
PRICE IDR 79K
REVLON SUPER LUSTROUS LIPSTICK
I read in Temptalia that this Blushing Nude shade is a dupe for Hourglass Ultra Slim High Intensity Lipstick (shade “If Only”). I love the color and the satin finish when first applied. Unfortunately after awhile, it might turn flaky if you don’t blot. So make sure, you blot, then it should be fine.
PRICE IDR 49K
EAU THERMALE AVENE TOLERANCE EXTREME EMULSION
The only skincare product I purchased this month. If you’ve been following me, you’d probably know that I love French’ drugstores brands. This is one of the best moisturizer that I’ve ever tried (obviously not my first purchase), minimal ingredients, hydrates, soothes and moisturizes with all the right ingredients. It’s also very safe for fungal acne.
PRICE IDR 345K
SISTER ANN DOUBLE EFFECT WATERPROOF EYELINER
K-beauty eyeliner that I’ve bought out of curiosity. Actually I already have a local favorite which never smudge when used as an inner-eyeliner, but yeah I just want to give this a try.
