So it's actually been a while since I went to Sydney and bought these products in Sephora. Usually madness ensues and I come out significantly less wealthy because overseas make-up products are preeeeety pricey in Australia. But I really wanted to try these hyped beauty products and here are my mini reviews:

1. Bite Beauty Agave lip mask in Champagne.
Would I re-purchase again? YES. 
Beautiful sheen and moisturizing lip balm that you can use as an overnight mask and as a bronzed lip look for daytime.

2. Anastasia Brow Wiz in Ebony
Would I re-purchase again? NO.
Love how thin and tiny the pencil is but much too expensive a product for something that is not even 1 gram.
3. Becca Shimmering skin perfector in Opal
Would I re-purchase again? YES.
A tiny bit goes a LOOOOOONG way with this stuff. Too much and it shows your pores.
4. Amika leave in cream for hair
Would I re-purchase again? NO.
Smells lovely and fragrant but I want to try other hair masks.
5. Bite Beauty Matte creme lip crayon in Sucre.
Would I re-purchase again? YES.
Very moisturizing but doesn't have extra-long staying power. Needs touch-ups throughout the day but worth the non-drying formulation.

Hello again. You've probably noticed that I have not been into the blogging thing as often this year. To be honest with you, I've been feeling a little burnt out and lack of inspiration in general has taken a huge toll on myself posting regularly. I think moving back to a smaller city in Australia from Seoul has a lot to do with this. If I'm not inspired = no blog posts.

Nowadays, I feel like the internet is churning out the same thing over and over again and lacking original content. Most blogs I look at nowadays seem a little contrived (except the ones I truly love) and lacking eccentricity and spontaneity. I think that is one of the reasons why I have branched out into looking at make-up Youtube channels. 

Don't get me wrong, I still love fashion but my love for it fluctuates and right now I'm in a bit of a rut. Hopefully I haven't lost my blogging mojo completely. Thanks to those of you for continually coming back and checking up on this site.

It's been a long time since I've blogged last and basically i don't really know how to word this post. An image will have to do for now before I start blabbing about why I was away....
