Rave Review: NYX stay matte but not flat powder foundation! (shade SMP05 soft beige)

Stay Matte but not Flat? Has anyone heard of tried this foundation powder by NYX? I picked this up during my huge NYX haul when I saw Smoochiezz booths with watsons a few months back! Check out my NYX haul here!

I heard that this was a great formulation for those who want matte skin with a natural glow. I swatched my HG ZA powder on my arm and matched it up to this shade, Soft Beige!

Vietnamese baguettes from Sandwich Saigon and an easy bright FOTD!

Bright eyes for dull days! I'm a HUGE fan of teal if it hasn't been aparent in a lot of my more colorful make up looks. A pop on the eyelids, from eyeshadow, eyeliner, cream shadow...I love it all.

This look was done for a casual day out with the boyfriend as we went to try out a cozy little vietnamese cafe in East Coast! I had to get the Banh Mi baguette as that was all I was craving to try!

Rave Review: NYX Slide On Glide On Eyeliners in 5 shades!

Slide on the eyeliner! Hey everyone! I know I say this all the time but I don't know if anyone notices but I'm still busy and wish I have more time to post! These babies I picked up a few months ago in my big NYX haul which I bought from booths by Smoochiezz here in Singapore!

I had so much trouble picking but I don't regret spending $70 just on 4 eyeliners! I would go back and buy the emerald green, gold and black! They are very smooth, creamy and as soo long lasting even on my easily irritated waterline!

FOTD: Neutral eye and Rose D'or blush from Bourjois!

Rave review: Maybelline Color Tattoos! (looks included)

Tattoo me totally! I know people on youtube are sometimes going, "Oh I know I must be sooo late on this review!"...but here in blogsphere its even longer than the youtubing world I find! Especially when products release at different times in different parts of the world!

These wonderful Color Tattoos eyeshadows released late last year and the first few times I used these babies were in December for some looks out! I've been having nothing but great times with these glass pots!

Haul for May 2013: Sandals, punkstar t-shirts, hair care and make up!

Happy mother's day! I made my mom a breakfast of mixed fresh fruits with yoghurt and a toasted croisant with cheese, ham and cucumbers! I also trimmed and painted her nails with one of my favorite OPI polishes! Hope you've found some time to pamper or gift your mom something as we all tend to forget how much mothers do in our lives.

I'll be on my way out in a few hours to see my boyfriend for our belated day of celebration for his birthday which was two days ago!

I've unfortunately been doing some shopping, of nothing too special but still the bills have been adding up! I am buying shampoo for a few months and I did get these shirts at a good price...or at least I think these are good enough reasons! I know I don't need a new wardrobe or too many new make up items! I've been using my palettes and having great fun!

Spring Inspired look: Pastel pink and purples! (Korean lunch!)

Pull out the pinks and purples! I know, I know, 'spring' as we know it is technically over...I think but I love bright pretty colors all year round as in Singapore, or at least south east asia it's summer all year round!

I did this look a short while back when going out to see my boyfriend for lunch and a movie. I took out my Wet n Wild palette in 'Lust' and immediately knew I wanted something purple and pink!

Review: Solone Eyeshadow Palette in 7252-1!

Shimmery neutrals high! I've had quite a great beginning to May! I can't believe it's almost half way through the year, I'm so saddened by how fast time past, it's crazy!

This palette was picked up earlier this year, it had such a pretty mix of brown, pinks and purples that I couldn't resist. The line is called 'Solone', it's a Taiwanese line of make up that has lots of wearable and fun colors in their eyeshadows and eyeliners!

I also gifted this palette to Pam from 'Jade in the Palace' beauty blog when we met up  in March!Do check out our meet up here! I hope when you get around to this that you'll enjoy the shades!

Overview: My skin care products! (May 2013)

First skin care routine overview! Holy I can't believe it's May! I don't want it to be May, I don't want time to pass so quickly! I have to so much do and so little time!

I've been very pleased with my last post which was of a green and yellow eye look! (Check it out here!) Been slowly going through the different colors in my Coastal Scents Smokey palette! I also did a smokey gray look too with it (Check it out here!)

I've been very shy of reviewing much skincare or recommending products as they are far more personal than make up and will likely work differently on everyone. However I've took the time and realized I would like to share a snapshot of the range of products I use on a regular basis!

Continue below for the overview!

My range of toners: The Body Shop Tea Tree Toner (my review here!), Clean & Clear oil control toner, Soskin Gentle Purifying Lotion, Bioderma Sebium H2o (my review here!)
