What's on my face?: My everyday make-up bag

Monday, 23 July 2018


So I finally have a blog post about make up. I realise I don't talk much about make up on this blog, so this month, I've decided to focus more on the matter of make up. I don't wear make up all that often nowadays and usually wear it more on the weekends or special events. But don't get me wrong, I still really enjoy buying, trying and applying make up when I have the time. So I've put together a short post on my typical make up routine, including all the products I love using. Enjoy!

Building your own Skin Care Routine. Where do you start?

Tuesday, 12 June 2018


I am excited to create this guide for all those just getting into skin care or for those who are looking to enhance their overall skin care routine. I'm so grateful for the dear friend who gave me this genius idea (you know who you are 💗). I've essentially, created a step by step of how to create your very own skin care routine. I tried my best to break it down as much as possible and I really hope that it helps you in some way.

Hair Care and Story Update: Dying my hair back to BROWN

Tuesday, 8 May 2018

Hello Friends,

It's been a while since I've spoken or updated you all on my hair. In this week's post I talk about going from blonde back to a much darker and natural brown colour. I did dye my hair quite a while ago, in early March and decided that it may be worthwhile giving you guys another chapter of my hair journey. I hope this will also be helpful for those who are looking to dye their hair darker, or want to dye their hair in near future.

The Ordinary Review: Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA, Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%, Buffet

Thursday, 5 April 2018

Hello Friends,

It's been a very long time since my last review on the Son & Park's Beauty Water.  So here's another one of my reivews on some very affordable but, effective skin care products.  I first came across The Ordinary at my own beauty drug store. But it was really Gothamista's in-depth review on a bunch of their products that really hooked me onto the brand. I decided to give the Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA and the Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% and Buffet serum a go. I've been trying out these products, for a good two months and felt it was time to finally share some of my thoughts!

It's no secret the entire beauty world is obsessed with this method of cleansing and in recent years has become a daily cleansing ritual for many.

Full Skin Care Routine on a Budget!

Sunday, 11 March 2018


In today's post I decided to write something that was inspired by my good friends. Many of my friends approach me about skin care and you can imagine that I do get very very excited. I just don't know where to start sometimes that I end up recommending this and that, all from a place of severe skin care obsession. So why not create and suggest a skin care routine, whilst keeping it within a reasonable budget. All the products I will mention are $30 and under, but highly effective in nurturing your skin type.

A Delayed Introduction: About the girl behind the Barcode

Wednesday, 21 February 2018

Hello Friends,

So I notice, I haven't formally introduced myself on my own blog! It really should have been the first thing I did. But I've decided to do this late introduction anyway.

My name is Kat to my close fam and friends. I'm from the Aussie lands and currently doing a commerce degree at University. I've also been a singer for 10 years and on the side enjoy dancing and acting. As you may know, I have a huge obsession for skin care, predominantly Asian skin care and cosmetics. Having said that, I am very open to trying all cosmetic brands.

Hello Friends,

Welcome to another year. I feel like I wasn't as consistent throughout 2017 on my blog but I've been working on a few potential blog posts you might find helpful. One of which might involve a formal introduction from yours truly and some more skin care reviews. I'm also looking forward to writing about more than just beauty and focusing on being more engaging with my readers. I know I don't have a huge following on here but if you're reading this, I thank you for your support thus far and I hope I can bring you some truly unique and worthwhile content this 2018.

I've decided to start this year with a review and product guide with some hair products I've been heavily relying on for my quite damaged, bleached hair.
