Top Three: Blushes

Im really into blushes these days and I thought it would be great to share my top three favourites.

Drumroll please.

NARS Orgasm


Orgasm is frequently talked about especially in the beauty community. When I first got it, I was like OH MY! How pretty! I love the gold flecks that gleam just slightly. It's never too much for me. I use this quite a lot in the day actually. A bit more expensive as I can only get them online but it's worth every penny. Please excuse the state. I have to get a back up soon.


BECCA Beach Tint

Sniffffff. Ahhh. This stuff smells a-ma-zing! I don't know what it is but it slightly fruity. Thank you Ra for introducing me to this fantabulous blush. It's actually a tint for cheeks and lips but I prefer it just for my cheeks. I do set the tint by gently swiping it over with a powdered blush for longer staying power. I don't bother touching up because it lasts like the whole day. Really. And I only use a teeny weeny bit.


TOPSHOP Cream Blush in Neon Rose

My first cream blush and I love it. I'm such a sucker for packages like this.


Does not look as scary when I put it on. Too bad they no longer have it at the store the last time I checked. Not too sure if it is discontinued.

Please note that I only swatched these for your eyes only. They might look super loud before blending.

Day 9 – A picture of me and my best friend

My best friend and I have known each other since we were ten.  But we've been best buds for four years now. We hang out with this same group of friends but it's usually just the two of us. We tell each other secrets. We have each other's back. Who says a boy and a girl can't have a platonic relationship? Here's a silly picture of us.

Day 8 – A bad habit I wish I didn’t have.

I am totally addicted to coke. Bad bad bad.

Day 7 – What I’d do if I won a million dollars.

I was too lazy to post yesterday so I will be posting two today..

If I won a million dollars, I would most probably travel alot and spend. And maybe open a little cafe.

Day 6 – The type of guy I’d fall for

I'm very attracted and would usually fall for boys who can sing and play musical instruments,






have hair cuts like Wentworth Miller, Justin Timberlake and Channing Tatum,







and have thick, dark eyebrows like Ed Westwick. Weird, I know.


Swoon.

Day 5 – Something I want more than anything right now.

A bottle of coke.

Day 3 – My favourite season and why

I don't have a favourite season because I live in Singapore where it is hot hot hot and humid all year round with occasional rain. I only get to experience seasons when I travel.

I love summer in New York. It was cooling yet sunny. Nothing like the humidity in Singapore.





 



Winter in Hong Kong was great because then I got to put on my winter jacket. 












Spring in Paris was slightly chilly and lovely.

Day 1 – A picture of me + 10 facts about me


Hello!! 


This is me and lets get the ten facts rolling.

One - I am obsessed with makeup. Especially with eyeliners and lipsticks. Should I do my makeup collection in my next post?

Three - I enjoy cooking and sometimes baking. Even if they are straight out of the box.


Four - I love drinking Starbucks while reading/studying/looking at boys. Wahaha.





Five - I'm slowly collecting Starbucks tumblers.

Six - I can't live without music. It helps me get through the day faster. Right now I am listening to Big Bang on repeat. I'm going to their concert soon!!



Seven - Seven is my favourite number.

Eight - iPad is my bestie. I call mine, Nichkhun. Hehehe. 
Pictures credit to rightful owners.

Inglot Haul

I went to Inglot store in Johore Bahru maybe two weeks ago. Inglot just recently opened a store at City Square. It is actually pretty easy to get to City Square Mall. I live in the East so I had to take a bus, train and then bus again just to get to JB. I then had to walk abit to get to the mall.


I only bought four items and got the under makeup base little pack for free. I also got a free makeup bag which I gave to my cousin because we combined our purchases and hit RM300. 


This is a gel eyeliner in grey or #78. I love the texture and it glides on so smoothly. It is very "wet" compared to M.A.C or Bobbi Brown. I read reviews that when you put it on you have to be quick and careful because it dries up so fast. Not for me because within a few seconds after I put it on I had smudges all over my eyes. Not cool. So I had to do an awkward position with my eyes while letting it dry. 


This is the same gel eyeliner but in turquoise or #87. I love using this on my lower lash line. These gel eyeliners are by far the best purchase from Inglot and I'm planning to collect them all in different colours. 


This pigment I got in metallic grey or #49 is awesome. The pigment in the jar is full to the brim, it's worth the money. I want to collect pigments now! Ahhh. The colour is so pretty.  


Lastly, I got myself a silver eyeliner to put on my bottom lash line. I am currently obsessed lining my bottom lash line if you could tell. It's a lot faster to dress up my eyes in the mornings. Heheh. 

Swatches will be posted soon. 

Overall, I was quite pleased with my first purchase. My main intention was to get a 10 colour eyeshadow palette but was a bit disappointed with some of the pigmentation and too overwhelmed with the choice of colours, I just could not decide. Second trip, maybe once I've done enough research on which colors to get. The one thing I might never ever get from Inglot - lipsticks. Arghhh lipsticks are my weakness but I just hate the scent of Inglot's lipsticks. They remind me of cupcakes dolls I used to play when I was younger. Other than that, I love. I want to collect their gel eyeliners and pigments. I want to try their concealer, I read they are good. I want to own a palette. With square eyeshadows. I'm crazy I know. I wish there's one here in Singapore just so I don't have to travel all the way to JB.  

Have you tried Inglot?

A short video from Paris

I've been meaning to share my vaca pictures now that my brother's home but I was too busy over the weekend.

I am tired still from the weekend event and running errands after work so I thought of sharing a video today. My brother took IT while we were in Paris. We took the train with a bunch of talented boys.

video


Ah. I want to hear them again!! They are sooo good. Too bad we had to get off the train too soon.

Ways to wear a flower or two

Yuki bought us a flower accessory each. How sweet.

We are going to show the different ways to wear a flower accessory or two. This can be purchased from accessory shops like Diva or Accesorize. Ours are from Forever 21. Try to get ones with a safety pin and clip at the back. It's more versatile that way. 


Pin up on side of your top.


Or gather the bottom of your big tee and pin it to make your top look more fitting and less sloppy.


Another obvious way is to clip up to the side of your hair. 


Or add a one to your bun.


Get a pair of flowers and clip them to your shoes. It's a great way to inject fun to your boring pair of black shoes.


Or nudes. 


Attach one to your bracelet.


Or bag. 

Isn't it versatile? A great way to jazz up any outfit. How do you wear yours?
