Sydney Fraser’s Suite

My stay in Sydney was rather pleasant. Fraser’s suite is centrally located, with friendly staffs and even the toiletries are by Peter Thomas Roth.

The only complaint is the heated indoor pool wasn’t that heated.

BECCA Boudoir Skin Mineral Powder Foundation

Posted on

BECCA new Mineral Powder Foundation – adjustable, natural looking coverage, semi-water-resistant formula, easy to apply and weightless to wear.

Suitable for all skin types, Boudoir Skin powder will not accentuate fine lines, feels drying on the skin or changes colour during extended wear. Buff some on for luminous skin colour that stays put all day; You can even wear it to bed to mimic smooth, perfect skin around the clock!

Infused with anti-oxidants A, B, C, E, red algae, aloe vera and honeysuckle flower, this sophisticated formulation is free from parabens, phenoxyethanol, oil, fragrance, alcohol, chemical dyes, talc and other fillers. It is also clinically, allergy and dermatologically tested to be non-irritating.

Can you ask more for a powder foundation? I don’t think so. I tried this on,then went to purchase 2 more compacts by the end of the day.

Bourdoir skin powder delivers a sheer, luminous finish that mimics your own skin, just better & finer. It’s a great compact foundation for people that prefer sheer to medium coverage. This mineral foundation is packed with skin caring ingredients that I wouldn’t mind wearing it to go to bed if needed.

I am wearing the shade  called Dream, although it’s not oil controlling, the shade doesn’t oxidise by sebum secretion; a really stay true formulation! In fact, my skin looks incredibly refreshed & vitalised after a few hours of wear ( once the sebum slips through the powder ).

Truly a star product ! Mineral powder foundation that never goes chalky / dull/ opaque, gives the illusion of a polished porcelain complexion, nurtures skin, stays put, non-irritating and comes in a compact about the size of an eye shadow powder ( travel friendly ).

Now you understand why I stocked up on this ( 3 compacts in a day ). It was retailed at AUD 50 each.

Sydney 2010

Posted on

I had treated myself a holiday in Sydney recently.

I had been to Sydney a few times before, so this time it’s just a breakaway, and some shopping spree ( Post Christmas Blues, Birthday ).

I had a few things on my must buy list while I am over there; of course most would be Australian brand.

I need to get some lippy from Poppy King ( Well, Lipstick Queen ); Sinners, Oxymoron, 15 Minutes Fame……

I have to stock up on Aussiebum underwear.

Maybe some Aesop’s, Becca’s and Jurlique’s.

I wonder whether I will find other exciting Australian beauty products while I am down under.

The city centre accommodation that I had booked for myself.
