The Face Shop haul (nail polishes and skincare!)

Mini The Face Shop haul! I got these things earlier this month. I intended to get nail polish for myself and ended up buying my moms birthday gifts. A brightening emulsion and hand lotion. Got a freebie four pack of face mask to try!

Review: Majolica Majorca 'Jeweling Eyes' quad in PK383!

Pink and pretty eyes! Pink isn't just a shade for the cheeks, for those with dark hair and eyes, it looks amazing on the eyelids too! I love the rich shimmery finishes of Majolica Majorca shadows, this quad of pinks is an example of wearable pink shades for the eyes!

Pick this up during a major haul during my birthday month of August, check it out here!

Special: Home made wantons and cookies with the boyfriend!

Cookie time! I had a foodie day with my boyfriend two weeks ago, we made fresh prawn and chives wantons as well as chocolate chip cookies. He made himself a GIANT one!

I love spending time with him, either cooking, catching a film or going to do something at the beach however time is precious and both of us are quite occupied with school/work/family.

As of today, I had to upgrade my google account as I filled up my 1 GB space for albums. I realize that my uploads of fullsize photos 80% of the time has probably contributed to that and the fact that I have uploaded alot of individual photos instead of what i do now. I intend for my upgraded 25GB to last me a much longer time!

A weekend with my boyfriend, baking cookies, making wantons, watching Walking Dead and eating Pizza Hut!

Review: theBalm stainiac lip stain in 'Beauty Queen'!

Berry stain time! Fall brings out the darker reds, cranberries, greens, blues and earthy hues in the fashion and make up world! Unforunately I don't approve very much of the clothes at this time of year, too dark and sad. The make up however I really am enjoying, the dark lips and smoldering eyes I do love seeing.

This lipstain by the still quite indie brand theBalm is the best stain I've tried so far. Much better than The Body Shop lipstain I reviewed here!

I bought this stain together with a bunch of goodies last year in my theBalm haul from SaSa here in Singapore! (check out the haul here)

Food Craze: Aroy Thai, Straits Kitchen, long Beach and Cedele!

Asian delights! That's what I think when I'm really hungry, I want something tasty, crispy, explosive and fresh! My love for asian cuisine will carry on and I hope to find more places serving yummy bites.

I've yet to find places in singapore serving amazing vietnamese and thai food at good prices so that's a search I must undertake when I've got the time!

Skin care review: Ducray Keracnyl foaming gel!

Soap free gel cleanser! Its been something I've been going through the last few months. I find soap free, gel type cleansers to be very gentle and great for oilier skin. I decided after using Hada labo AHA/BHA cleanser for several months that I wanted to try something else.

I purchased this at Guardian Pharmacy here in Singapore!

Rave Review: Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation in shades 52 & 53~!

Healthy Mix for life! That's what I've been saying since I got my hands on this heavily raved about foundation from Bourjois! It has a beautiful semi-matte finish, matches yellow tones and works amazing on asian complexions from fair to light-medium. 

I picked this up along with lots of back ups in Phnom Penh Cambodia when I visited my best friend for her Graduation. I used to study there in the international school. Got this with a whole bunch of other goodies such as the Bioderma Sebium toner in (my haul here!)

7 Bright eyes looks and shimmery pink cheeks!

It's not very me to have dark lips and eyes which has been the fall trend! That and I haven't gotten around to experimenting much with make up which makes me a bit sad. Oh well, I will get around to it sometime!

Here are a bunch of bright, wide eyed looks, mostly neutrals with shimmery pink pops of blush on my cheeks. To get my signature pink cheek, I use rosey shades by Bourjois or Canmake. Both blushes are very pigmented and have a very fine texture!

Fancy Chinese lunch with the family at Taste Paradise (FOTD)

There was nothing left! The food I mean! Grandma offered to take us out to lunch at a higher end chinese restaurant called "Taste Paradise", they have outlets in several countries in Asia. We went to the outlet in Ion Orchard. The prices for dim sum were a few more dollars than regular at $5-7 Sgd a portion.

Note: I previous published this post with the name "Din tai fung", that was the wrong restaurant.

Review: Majolica Majorca eyeshadow trio in BR355! (swatches + look)

Everyday shimmery browns! If you're familiar with Majolica Majorca's shadows, you know they are all shimmery! I love how they're trios and quads are well matched and pigmented. Very smooth and very shimmery!

The last time I went to watsons and hauled for my birthday month of August I picked this up. (Check out my haul here!) There was a smokier brown trio but I got this warmer bronzey trio. There was a beauty warm and smokey brown quad but that was limited and it was sold out!

Review: The Body Shop Shimmer Cubes in 07!

Shimmer, shimmer, shimma! That's all I think of when it comes to eyeshadows.

I'm one of those girls who has no issues with completely metallic and shimmery shades on my eyes. I think it's so flattering on me and asian ladies, it gives dimension and light on our small lids!

Here's one of the shimmer cube quads I picked up last year in shade 07. The colors are very wearable and actually very fitting for fall!

Quick review: Dior Addict Ultra Gloss Reflect in shade 537!

Brown shimmery lippie anyone? I've only had a few of these all thanks to my mom who picked them up on airplanes in sets. This is from their older packaging and line, however I find the color very suited for fall and the color palette being seen everywhere!
