Hauls and Packages

It sucks not to have internet at home =/ and with limited internet access after work, it’s a pain to upload my posts. T-T nuff said, I want it back soon. Anyway, I haven't done a haul post for awhile and nope I haven't stopped hauling. haha there's endless things to try and the list just keeps growing.

first sigma haul
As 2010 came to an end, I made my first haul from Sigma! :) yay~ It's probably one of the best investment I've made for 2010. I bought their Sigma Complete Kit since it pretty much has everything I need. It's got 5 face brushes and 7 brushes for the eyes! So yes it's pretty complete and they're affordable too :D No more having to buy each brush individually now which will cost me more in the long run. Plus the quality's pretty good. I'll do a more detail post on it later, I don't know when though. haha they actually shipped it very quickly and it came carefully wrapped with a pretty sash pouch. Plus there's a free gift if you purchase over $30.

Innisfree Cosmetics

In my preview post I did a review on the Innisfree Mint Pore Clean & Up Pack which is sort of like a cream mask that dries into a peef off film mask. I thought I’ll do a short post, briefly about this brand since I don’t think many of us overseas have heard of it. I’m very new to this brand myself and I wasn’t sure what it was or what it had to offer. Especially, since I’ve never seen this brand in Sydney. So here we go...

Innisfree is another Korean Brand that was first launched in 2000. Its named is inspired from the poem "The Lake Isle of Innisfree" by William Butler Yeats who was an Irish poet and dramatist. The name Innisfree itself is an acronym for Island (innis) and 'free.' Their emphasis on offering natural and environmentally friendly products which uses botanical nutrients and essence extracted from organic plants and herbs. Apparently Innisfree is quite a popular brand in Korean and is under the Amore Pacific Corporation (South Korea's largest cosmetic company which includes Laneige, Iope, Mamonde, Hera, Sulwhasoo and more)
