Special: Daiso Japanese two dollar store make up look! (mini reviews)

Beauty products at Daiso! Here in Singapore Daiso is a very popular value store from Japan where everything is $2 Singapore dollars! From food, ceramics, gardening equipment, household needs, crafts and even beauty products and accessories they seem to have almost everything! I'm pretty sure that everyone visits daiso for certain things much like my family regularly purchases large packs of wet wipes and small charcoal purifiers!

In terms of beauty goods, they're very well known for their sponge detergent which is a fabulous brush cleaner as well as other cheap products which aren't half bad. So far I've only ever bought make up sponges, false lashes and the liquid cleaner so I decided to go ahead and all the products I'll need for a complete face of make up to try!

Holiday Special: Day 7and 8 in Bali, Indonesia! (April 2015)

Balinese cuisine and beautiful Ubud! For those who have followed this is the final installment in my Bali holiday travels posts! There are four other installments before this one of my various days in Bali earlier this year when I went on holiday with my boyfriend. Our one week holiday on the gorgeous Island was split between staying mostly in the busy tourist packed Kuta area and then the quiet more culturally rich center of the Island Ubud.

Ubud is much further inland but still has plenty for tourist to visit, experience and enjoy. Bali is a huge Island and I really do wish we had a few more days to explore and visit more! There is so much rich tradition, history and places to visit, let along delicious amazing local food which we manged to try a bit of while in Ubud!

Continue below for our last two days in Bali!

Peacock feather inspired makeup and a Korean dinner with ex-classmates!

Peacock eyes and delicious Korean fried chicken! For those who didn't know, I love love the color scheme of peacock feathers and mermaid's tails! I love jewel tones especially when it comes to blues, purples and teals! If I could I'd wear those colors all the time on my eyes but since I can't I do pull them out on special occasions or times when I've got the extra time to invest in a fancier eye look! 

On this occasion I met up with some ex-classmates for the biggest gathering we've had since we all went our own ways last year! Our class compromised of just under twenty people but quite a few of them are either always very busy with work or aren't in the country. We all visited an ex-classmates' newly opened restaurant here in Singapore called, "Twins". His twin brother and himself are korean and their place has a menu of various korean style fried chicken and other popular dishes!

Rave Review: Shiseido Shimmery Cream Eye Color in BL711, OR313 & VI305!

Creamy, colorful, shimmery perfection! I've become a huge user and fan of cream shadows from all walks of price point! I've tried the inexpensive ones from maybelline, other asian brands, Kiko and now I've had the chance to own several from Shiseido! These bad boys were on my radar for some time, they were not a must-buy but when I was on holiday last year in Bandung, Indonesia with my boyfriend we were in a big mall and when I realized that these were cheaper I just had to get two...and then I went back and got one more!

If you're a fan of creamy, smooth, fine shimmer and you love waterproof eyeshadow do continue below for the swatches and my review! Check my holiday in Bandung Indonesia (check out here) and the beauty, skincare and food items I hauled from the trip (check out here)!

Review: Cyber Colors Skin-Balancing Compact in 02 Natural!

Skin Balancing Compact! For all those ladies who have viewed many of my make up looks or the beauty hauls where I've purchased powders like a crack addict, it'd be no surprise how much I love powders! Given that Singapore is so humid and hot and you're bound to break a sweat or two or a thousand in a day even if you're just inside a building, to me it's crucial to have a powder for touching up and for setting my base!

The purchase of this powder was made at Sasa last year after I had received a $30 voucher for purchasing skincare or cosmetics from certain brands in their store for my birthday month. I took the time looking around the shop but nothing really stood out so I decided it's not a bad idea to get a powder since I go through them very quickly!

Special: Halloween Cleopatra inspired make up look! (2015)

Happy Halloween everyone! For those who are in America and Canada I'm sure that Halloween is quite a big deal as well as a tradition and fun occasion for families! I only knew about this celebration growing up because I had many American teachers at the International Schools I attended. Halloween isn't anywhere as relevant in Asia in general and if you go knocking on people's door for candy probably 9/10 people will not have any treats to give to trick-o-treaters!

Halloween and all the knick knacks that go with it such as costumes, accessories, themed treats and events are now much more common in Asia but recently I'm most impressed by the gals on youtube who do amazingly artistic make up looks for the occasion! I was inspired by Elizabeth Taylor's Cleopatra look and decided to go just go all out and create my version of a Cleopatra look!

Rave Review: MAC's Mineralize Blush in Love Joy!

Bring me that Love Joy! When I was younger I was under the impression that in order to say that you had "good make up" you had to have make up from MAC cosmetics! I'm not saying now that they're not good but I still don't own anything much from them just because buying MAC here isn't very convenient and is quite costly. I used to own a few single shadows but that was a long time ago and since then I've been wanting to try their bases however this mineralize blush and another in the shade 'gentle' (my review here) were purchases I made last year at the Singapore Airport!

Food Post: What I ate during for the month of August! (local Chinese, Thai, Japanese, Tacos)

Yummy, Nommy, Food! Everything delicious or that looks delicious usually tempts me in someway or another but I'll admit I've always been a sucker for savory foods more so than sweet treats! Those who have been following me for a while or who have seen my 'food posts' or posts of days out will know that I love taking photos food. I don't photograph everything though, I find it pointless to photograph everything I eat as not everything is worth documenting or sharing (but I know some people who do!!).

This food post is quite delayed as it's for the month of August! I had so many great food days in August from eating local chinese food at a new coffeeshop near my home, Thai food, really good Japanese, home made tacos, frozen pizzas and more!

Continue below for all the delicious food!
Chinese from Crystal Jade: Braise beef noodle soup, mushrooms and broccoli, sweet and sour pork, charsiew noodle soup and har gao dumplings! Everything was great but we wished the portions were bigger!

Review: Canmake Perfect Stylist Eyes in 07 Gateau Framboise!

Gateau Framboise on your eyes! For those who have been reading my reviews for a while, it's no surprise that I've had a love with Canmake's single blushes for years. It's hard to resist the girly, young and princess vibes that the brand gives off in general and even now I'm a fan. I've also tried their trio eyeshadow in the past as well as most recently their "Strong Eyes Liner" which was really good and I'm still currently using.

This eyeshadow palette was kindly provided to me by a local company which has an online shop called 'T-Supply Company" , they carry a modest range of make up products, accessories as well as health supplements! If you reside in Singapore do check them out as there will be a discount code I'll be sharing in this review!
