Hong Kong just made me broke! The country has an amazing array of makeup. It is like no brand that I cannot find in Hong Kong. To make it worse, my apartment is located near makeup stores, such as Sasa, Bonjour, Watsons, and even Sogo that carries high-end brands. I really can’t take my eyes off of them. Rather than wiping in the corner and regretting not buying them, I decided to buy the makeup or skincare that I can wear on daily basis, not just something that I wanted to try only. I divided Hong Kong beauty haul in two posts because it is just too many. So pardon me, here’s my Hong Kong Haul Part 1.
Eyebrow pencil has become a part of my daily life. I wear it every time I go out and about. Since i prefer eyebrow matic, my favorite has always been Benefit Precisely, My Brow. However, when I looked to Indonesian products, I was surprised that many brands offer great eyebrow matic. Back then, most Indonesian brands had only brow pencil in which I had to constantly sharpen the tip to get a precise application. Am I the only one who get frustrated sharpening the pencil? I am just not good at it. They always begin to crumble every time it hits the blade of the sharpener. However, most of the Indonesian automatic brow pencils are produced abroad, even some of them are produced in the same company. Here I have tried 6 Indonesian twist-up brow pencils. Most of them are really good if not to say a dupe for the Benefit. I list them from my least to my most favorite. Keep on reading..
Raise your hand if you can’t leave the house without filling in your eyebrow first! Yes, brow currently becomes the most important thing in women’s life, including mine. I can leave the house without wearing lipstick, but not with eyebrow. I have to admit that my holy grail eyebrow product is Benefit Precisely My Brow Pencil and NYX Microbrow pencil. But, those two products are quite expensive, especially the Benefit one. NYX, even though considered as drugstore product, the price is a bit high. So, I tried to find a good alternative, and then I came across this LA Girl Shady Slim Brow Pencil which costs only IDR 65.000. Is it as good? Just read my review..
I have tried a lot of products in 2017. Not everything is newly released, but they are new to me. However, only some that blew my mind. I packed my favorites, from hair products, skincare, to makeup, in one post because I don’t have that many products to make several posts. If you curious about my beauty favourites in 2017, keep on reading.
This month’s haul is a bit from here and there. I am such a sucker for sale. Almost everything that I purchased this month because they were discounted in drugstore and online. Some I bought because I always wanted to try but hadn’t got a chance to buy them. So, here’s what I bought:
While organizing my makeups, I came across some makeups that I used to wear almost everyday. Some of them were my holy grail. Some of them I wore because I did not have another option. It is sad that those products are left in the bottom of my drawer. So, I decided to bring them back and used them in my face. I, too, am curious about what I think about them nowadays because now I have tried many products. If you wanna know what are my old favorites, then keep on reading:
This month’s haul is about discovering Indonesian brand. I tried to incorporate Indonesian brands to my makeup arsenal because I found that some Indonesian products are as good as US or Korean brands. Moreover, most Indonesian makeup products are much more cheaper than any makeup that we found in Sephora.
I searched up and down mall and online store to find Indonesian products. I found some Indonesia products that caught my eyes. However, along the way, as you can see from my haul, I still cannot resist from buying US
and Korean brands. Read along if you are interested in what I will try this month and review in the near future:
