Review: Rival de Loop Liquid Make-up in 03 cashmere!

Cashmere Liquid Make-up! Many liquid foundations advertise and claim to go on the skin smoothly and most of them do but it's most important that it feels, looks and last well. I love using BB creams but they are 99% all have a dewy finish and I end up setting them with foundation powders so that they feel matte and last well all throughout a humid and hot day.

This foundation was gifted to me in a swap from Pam from Jade in the Palace blog! She and I both have oilier skins and similar skin tone! However my skin is no longer as oily as it was a few years ago and now I can say my skin is normal to slightly oily. I was so excited to see this German drugstore brand and was not disappointed at all!

First look with the Lorac Unzipped palette! (Pink bronze eyes)

Unzipped with Lorac! I am just another girl who is crazy over neutral palettes but not the matte only brown toned type of neutrals but the palettes with a range with pinks, bronze, golds and more! Surprisingly I don't own any of the Urban Decay Naked palettes but I would love to own the 3rd rose toned one in the near future! 

This beautiful Unzipped palette caught my eye as all the shades are light or medium toned with lots of shimmer. This palette was out of stock in a local online store for months so when I saw this back in stock I bought it and it went straight out of stock a few days later!

June & July 2014: Lunch and dinners eaten out!

Food, food, food! Yes, I'm a huge foodie! Not the kind that always goes to new places and goes to fancy roof top bars and eats the 8 course tasting menu but the kind that revisits their favorite places and constantly seeks variations. I grew up in an international schooling environment and because I'm from singapore and we have all kinds of cuisine here, I eat virtually everything. 

Most singaporeans eat Malay, Chinese, Nyona Western and Indian food while growing up as that's the make up of the ethnicities here too! I also have always been eating plenty of Japanese, Korean, Vietnamese and Thai!

Handbag haul: Charles & Keith summer collection!

Handbag haul time! Yes, it has been a long long time since I did major damage in the hand bag department. I rarely buy new bags, for one, they can be quite pricey in Singapore even if it's a no name accessory brand bag. One brand that I always gravitate towards for their beautiful designs and super well made qualities and fun and modern designs is local home grown brand Charles & Keith. 

It's a singaporean brand that was started by Singaporeans and is actually very popular in south east asia, they even have stores all over the world which is impressive as Singapore has very few internationally known brands! Another singapore brand is Rachel K for her CC cream which has exploded in the international beauty world!

Review: P2 Sheer Glam Lipstick in 071, 011, 090! (Mona Lisa Smile, French Kiss, Sex and the City)

Sheer Glam Lipstick! I realize that many ladies who don't wear bright shades are not used to the color or don't enjoy the texture of lipstick. I'm sort of one of those ladies who loves brights on the lips but only decides to go full on lipstick on days where my lips are 'feeling' good or when I'm in the mood for being okay with maintenance as I've got dry lips that peel especially when there's product on them!

These three beautiful lippie were part of a swap I did with the lovely Pam from Jade in the Palace blog! She helped me get these lippies to try as I had seen her review P2 lipsticks on her blog before and they looked great! Check out the swap here!

Skincare review: The Face Shop Smart Peeling Jelly Apple Peeling wash!

Jelly Apple wash! I'm someone who is easily fascinated by products that use plant or fruit extracts or ingredients, I guess we just all like to think that if it has something natural in it, it should be good for us! I have been trying out a couple different jelly 'peeling' face washes which are meant to help exfoliation of the top layer of dead skin cells without being rough on the skin. This was the first of a few I've tried so far.

Berry explosion look using Urban Decay Deluxe palette! (Fishnet, ransom, peace, scratch)

Berry explosion! For some reason I can actually imagine a mix of berry jams of purples, blues and reds exploding on someone's face when I thought of the name for this look! However my look is nowhere that abstract or artistic! I was in the mood for something light, bright and pretty. I wanted to someone use a few of the purples in my Urban Decay deluxe palette and this is what I came up with!

Rave Review: Heavy Rotation Perfect Liquid Eyeliner in Deep Black 01!

Perfect liquid eyeliner? I've tried now at least 5 Asian brands of liquid eyeliner and all of them have been great in different ways but my favorite type has to be the ones with a soft nylon fiber tip. Those eyeliners are the ones that are the easiest to draw a smooth line without any drag, pull or effort at all. I'm not a fan of felt tips or pencil eyeliners for the upper lash line.

I have repurchased my favorite Kiss me heroine eyeliner already 4 times and after trying a K-palette eyeliner and being disappointed by how it performed after a few months I was ready to try a new brand of eyeliner! Isn't it funny how so many brands of asian eyeliners have the word "perfect" in their names?
