FOTD - Candywoman

Hey lovelies,

The weekend just flew past without me realising and its Monday again. And ever since I have been working almost full time hours at my current job, I have been hating Mondays. Oh well, I should stay positive and shouldn't complain so much. At least, I had a great weekend! Will update you guys about that later. :) How did you spend your weekend?

Anyways, I decided to do a quick update before hitting the sack because I think I have been a pretty fail blogger lately. =.="


" Are you going on a date today, Adeline?", a colleague of mine asked me today.

I looked at him, puzzled. (as I was in my sweater, tights and sneakers today,not exactly a date-proof outfit, isn't it) So, I asked him where did he get the idea from. And the answer I got was, " Oh, I got the idea because it seems like you're nicely made up today."

The irony is, today is one of the days where I wore minimal make up with no effort to experience new colours. All I did was put on my new Australis Moisture Intense Lipstick in Candy (a really gorgeous fushia colour. swatches below) from Priceline last week when they were having clearance.

Like I said, just your everyday-neutral look with the typical earthy brown colour, a thin line of eyeliner and a coat of mascara.

I didn't even bothered with the whole Neutral Pop look *click* and it is definitely much more simple compared to the Japenezu inspired look *click* and the Purple Paradise look *click* which I had worn to work.

A close up.

I came to realisation that flash makes my face looks much more chubbier than it already is. Blurgh.

As you can see, the whole Monday Blues was acting up on me. Hence, minimal camwhoring was done and the quality of photos were pretty bad. My apologies.



I grabbed this lipstick from Priceline out of curiosity as I have read a couple of pretty good reviews on their make up products. It was going for $2.99 in the clearance basket and it seems like a pretty colour on the packaging so I decided to give it a try.

-With flash-
As you can see, the formula is pretty moisturizing and it doesn't dry my lips (like most of the lipsticks do and especially in the cold weather).

-Without flash-
Also, it is VERY pigmented. It lasted for a good few hours, without having me to touch it up. Another extra brownies points for that.:)

I am really happy with this lippie, especially for the price I paid for. Absolutely loving the bright fushia pink colour, it does brighten up the entire look on the days you prefer to go light and easy and your eyes. For Sydneysiders, do check out your nearer Priceline. So far, I have seen this offer at Burwood and World Square. It's always good to snatch a good bargain. :)


My colleague's comment kinda got me thinking. Are the guys really that oblivious to women's make up? Or they are just ignorant and doesn't give a shit? OR, this lipstick really does stand out and grab all the attention?

I guess its somewhat true when they say women dressed up and look good for themselves and for other women (read: competitiveness) and not for men.

What are your thoughts,beauties?




oh cute!
i think guys only see certain things that are like, say brighter or bolder - stands out! eg. they only notice big boobies or the smallest ones ever! LOL

Thanks :)
LOL I love how you use boobies as an example AHAHA

Alice said...

Hmmm I've been looking for a colour like that! :) Don't know if I'd like Australis though...I like my labels :P

So far from my experience with guys, they prefer women without make-up. One reason is that they don't like lip-marks on their face when you kiss them LOLOL!

No wonder your colleague made the comment! You look like a doll :D And sometimes neutral brown makeup can look super cute, even when not over-done :D Cheers pretty lady!
