Acid Green Forest eye and a cranberry cheek! (Dim Sum lunch)

Gimme that Acid! Here I have to present a super bright acid green forest gradient eye look! I just took a look into my greens and realized I wanted something super bright but wanted it to still be wearable for going out in the day time! Most people would like to wear neons or super bright colors but it's a bit scary so turning it into a gradient makes it more wearable although quite done up!

For lunch, my family and I headed over to an outlet of Peach Garden at Thomson Plaza. We ate a total of 17 dim sum items! This is because there was my brother and I who are huge eaters when it comes to dim sum! The food was just delicious!

Review: Shiseido Aqua label Bright White EX!

Light and Bright! For Asian women for many generations having a clear, bright and 'white' complexion has been an ideal! You'll see women in the hot and humid climates in south eat asia walking around or bike riding under the hot sun with long sleeves, sleeve caps or jackets just to prevent a tan. 

Aqua label's blue line of skincare products are meant for whitening and brightening! This whitening serum from Aqua label caught my eye as I was looking for one just for spot usage on my face on areas with visible pigmentation/scars. I've tried a concentrated whitening gel from them before so I thought I'd change it up with this instead!

Dark Smokey Brown eye with a soft pink lip! (lunch at Brotzeit)

Dark, Smokey and a German lunch date! This simple but yet subtle enough dark brown smokey eye was done some weeks ago for a daytime date! Having received the Urban Decay Smoked palette last year from my boyfriend I've been in love every single time I used any shades from it. The browns in the palette make for a variety of smokey eyes but my favorite is a gradient dark brown one!

The boyfriend and I decided to have a late lunch at the German franchise restaurant here in Singapore called "Brotzeit". It served authentic german food and beers at affordable prices! And finally I ordered something new!

Review: NYX round lipsticks in shades Eucalyptus, Chloe, Fire, Chaos and Hero!

Round lipstick hoard! For those who haven't heard of this super creamy lippies by NYX they were one of the first products I hoarded in my first NYX purchase which was through on online group spree. I loved how they were cheap and were so pigmented. These are the original packaging and formulation as now they have been renamed "Extra creamy round lipstick" and the packaging changed slightly.

Here I had 5 shades, which is only a fraction of their huge range, there's about 100 or so color choices currently listed on nyxcosmetics.com! I had bought multiples of certain shades and have since given several away to to mother, grandmother and have one more shade that's not in this review!

Review: Mikatvonk CC cream whitening anti-winkle in 01 Natural Beige!

Color changing CC Cream! Yes, I know, I know! CC creams have been out for sometime now but I've been very slow to try any as I'm just not keen on buying something that's like a BB cream but seemingly half the time less pigmented! However recently I've been seeing some awesome reviews of more pigmented ones and I've got my eye on the Bourjois CC cream but I'm going to have to order it online through ASOS if I decide to buy it.

Here I have a CC cream from the brand Mikatvonk or Mik@vonk! I've done a review of a BB cream from them a short while ago that had an amazing color match to me and so when I was sent this by the same company I was quite keen to see how it would perform!

Simple shimmery purple look with a plum cheek!

Wearable daytime purple! For those who are not the biggest fans of super bright or bold colors on the eyes, the way to get started or to get comfortable is to choose one color and work it onto the eyes with a highlight and a brown in the crease! You can replace the purple I used with any other color, a green, blue, pink or orange! Have fun with this simple shadow placement!

Rave reivew: Kiko Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadow (01 pearly white, 05 rosy brown, 10 emerald green, 15 lilac)

Longlasting Stick Shadows for you? I had only discovered cream stick eyeshadow about two years ago. A good cream stick eyeshadow is creamy, pigmented, blends out easily and is super waterproof so it can be worn on its own or as a base. 

I had seen that Kiko has a beautifully large colorful range of these stick cream shadows and as part of a large beauty swap I asked for these four shades! Check out my swap with Pam from Jade in the Palace here!

Flawless brown smoked eyes, plush false lashes and vixen red lips!

Red lips and ready! When heading out for a date lunch or dinner I try my best to go bold on the lips or eyes! I used to really shy away from deep and bold lipsticks because I found it difficult to deal with lipstick on my sensitive slightly dry lips that peel a lot but I've now found ways so that my lipstick lasts and looks good! 

Here is a straightforward vixen red lip dinner time look! A simple neutral smoked brown eye with plush false lashes and bold red lips using my NYX round lipstick!

Review: 3CE Back to Baby BB cream! (3 Concept Eyes)

Back to Baby BB! Now that so many companies from Asian to Western are producing their version of a BB cream it's hard to figure out which one to buy first or try! I personally prefer a medium coverage BB cream with a more yellow undertone. 

The BB cream I have here today is from the much sought after brand 3CE which is slowing getting onto everyone's radar! Currently I own this BB cream and a foundation from them which will be eventually reviewed!

Pink and garnet smokey eye using the Lorac Unzipped palette!

Day to night pink smokey eye! When most people think 'smokey' eye most think of black, gray, browns and other deep earthy colors but I love doing more wearable and light looking smokey type eyes with pinks and peaches! Having owned my Lorac Unzipped palette for a while now I decided to combine the pale pinks with a touch of the deeper garnet shade!
