Bourjois Blush in 34 Rose D'or

Having heard that Bourjois actually owned Chanel cosmetics brand, I heard some of their products are cheaper version of Chanel's. Their blush is said to be similar to Chanel Joues Contraste without the €38 price tag. Let's see :)

Spring Must Have: OPI Sparrow Me the Drama

Spring is finally here (well, at least for a few days) and I know one color that I have to take out of my nail polish drawer once the sun is appearing. It's OPI Sparrow Me the Drama. This polish came out during spring two years ago in OPI collaboration with Pirates of the Caribbean, I didn't realize it's been that long since.

Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque

I have chemically treated hair which has gotten drier due to climate and heat styling. Lately I noticed my regular conditioner doesn't work as good, I usually change up my shampoo and conditioner because I haven't really found something that can be considered as HG material. I once loved Schwarzkopf Bonacure Repair Rescue line but I am on the market for cheaper alternatives. This purchase, though, doesn't support that statement ;)

Dusseldorf Haul

Hello! I took a little break from all the review posts to share a short haul post ;) 
I apologized for taking more time in replying comments because some of my family are here right now so I went some places with them. While they're here we also visited my Aunt in Germany so last weekend we all went to Düsseldorf :D I love visiting Düsseldorf because there are great Japanese food places there such as Na Ni Wa or Takumi ramen restaurant, Tenten Café that sells frozen matcha, Waraku onigiri shop, Tea One bubble tea and so on. Other reason? Some make up and beauty products that are not available in Netherlands can be found in Germany, like Inglot, Kiko, Soap and Glory. Also some drugstore products might be much cheaper compared to in Netherlands (not all of them, though). 

I know this is not much as I've seen other people called this many items "mini haul" ;P but this is considered much for me and I'm so excited with each items :D

Jessica nail polish in Flirtation

This is my first Jessica nail polish. I have only heard about it through Scrangie who sometimes reviewed its collection. I first attracted to the brand because they made the dupe for Chanel fall 2011 polishes collection. So when I found out they made a dupe for Chanel Spring 2012 collection I was really really interested.

Lioele Blooming Gloss in 05 Vanilla Pink

After hearing nothing but good things about this gloss from frmheadtotoe and RaeView, I got a hold on this gloss when I went to Indonesia last year. Since then I have been wearing it all the time and I just recently repurchased so I think it's time to write a review of it :)

Lucas' Papaw Ointment

This is going to be another short lip care product review. Since the last experience with Nivea lip butter I have been searching for another lip treatment. Winter has decided to stay with us for much longer this year so I need something pretty badly.

Revlon Colorstay Liquid Foundation

Revlon Colorstay Liquid Foundation has been around for a long time. Back in Indonesia I bumped into this foundie lots of time at Revlon counters but I never got around to trying it. Now that I've moved, I browsed about make up more often and I thought I need to try this at least once. Talk about bad timing. In Netherlands it's difficult to find Revlon products in person (there are several online drugstores where it's available), I only knew one drugstore in my city that offered Revlon, and now that store's closed already. It's really annoying to have to guess your shade through the internet but in the end I picked a shade and crossed my fingers ;)

Sigma Paris Palette

This post was loooong delayed in my drafts ^^ Sigma Paris palette was released during spring last year. It was a collaboration project done by Sigma featuring seven beauty gurus. They went to Paris and were assigned a landmark to make an eyeshadow shade of.  I was planning to write about the people and the shade back then, but since it's been long delayed, I guess it makes more sense to just talk about this palette on its own :)

Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation

Finally reviewing a foundation again :) this one in particular had so many reviews online because it's particularly new and launched during Fall last year; around the same time with other new foundations such as YSL Touche Eclat, Burberry Velvet Foundation and Giorgio Armani Maestro foundation. I remembered this quite well because it made me think of which one I would want to buy. After some thoughts and also price consideration, I decided on Urban Decay's :)

Urban Decay described Naked Skin Foundation as
"Coverage without compromise. Our weightless formula blurs imperfections for a flawless finish that feels invisible, but looks professionally retouched."
Well we should see if those claims are true ;)
