Bloggie Wednesdays: What Wouldn’t You Blog About?

Bloggie Wednesdays: What Wouldn't You Blog About?

Happy hump day, folks!

I’ve been talking about increasing engagement on your blog and social media lately so instead of going on and on about it again today, I thought I’d write on a more light-hearted and easier-to-read topic (engagement bit will come again next week. Booyah!) given that the weather was quite miserable here in Melbourne.

Last week, I met up with a PR I worked with and she asked if I blogged about perfumes and if I reviewed them. Now if you’ve been a long time follower of Beautyholics Anonymous, you’ll find that I rarely mention perfumes here. Even when I do write about fragrances, it will not be a review.

That question got me thinking. Is there a particular topic or two that you will not blog about?

My Favourite Liquid Eyeliners

My Favourite Liquid Eyeliners

A couple of years ago, I made it part of my new year resolutions that I will master the application of liquid eyeliners. Liquid eyeliners have always been my downfall; I love it on other ladies but I couldn’t seem to get it right without 1) poking the damn things in my eyes or 2) drawing crooked lines on my lashlines. It was frustrating to say the least and I was determined to get the application at least decent once and for all.

Two years later, after lots of teary moments from getting poked in the eye, removal with eye makeup remover, try again, getting poked in the eye again, etc, I finally got it right. It’s not as smooth and precise as most ladies who wear liquid eyeliners regularly, but it’s at least pretty decent. After sifting out the lemons from the lot, these are the liquid eyeliners I’d go for and are my top picks.

I can safely say that these are eye-friendly and not poke-worthy. :D

Read My Lips: Face of Australia Lasting Looks Lip Creme in Love Berry

First of all, may I just say, thank you so much for the amazing response on the preloved makeup sale! Thanks to all who purchased some goodies and to those who helped me spread the word on social media and to their friends and family. The beauty-loving community of bloggers (that’s you!) and non-bloggers (that’s you too!) are truly wonderful. What will I do without you? *sniff* :)

Face of Australia Lasting Looks Lip Creme in Love Berry

Today’s post is a quick one as I spend the day cleaning out the makeup and packaging items to be sent to the respective buyers (plus I’m still recovering from chocolate over-indulgence over Easter. Ahem.). I used to just categorise lippie swatches under Quickie Mentions but I figured I’ll give them a special category called Read My Lips instead. It’s one of those ideas I got while in the shower, so don’t mind me. :P

I’ll be honest; I didn’t used to be a fan of Face of Australia lipsticks. As beautiful as the colours, texture and longevity are, they smell and taste something awful. I don’t like the waxy, back-in-the-90s typical lipstick scent and taste, which was what most Face of Australia lipsticks had. May I just shout a loud Hallelujah for their new Lasting Looks Lip Cremes for they have finally gotten rid of that yucky taste of wax. It’s now a subtle hint of vanilla. It’s not the best but it’s a vast improvement from the previous lipsticks. It’s not drying on the lips although I do still prefer to slap on some lip balm prior to applying this lippie.

Happy weekend!

I hope you’re as excited about I am about today’s preloved makeup sale on Beautyholics Anonymous. As I mentioned yesterday, 100% of the proceeds (excluding postage fees) of all the items sold on the sale today will be donated to Beyond Blue. Fingers crossed that all items will go to good homes. The sale will be held for 2 weeks and will close by 3 May. I’ll post the receipt of donation on the blog once the money has been donated.

Some I had to let go with a heavy heart because they were difficult to come by when I first got them. But I’m sure you’ll give them a lot more love than I could. Some of the prices may be higher than expected in typical blog sales but this is for a good cause after all. Before we proceed, please take note of the terms and conditions below.
