Holiday Special: Day 1 and 2 in Bali, Indonesia! (April 2015)

Selamat Pagi from Bali, Indonesia! After months of planning, booking and lots of anticipation my boyfriend and I took a gorgeous 8 day long vacation to Bali at the end of April! I of course did our rough itinerary planning of where we were going to stay, for how long, where we had to visit, cafes to visit and so on, all of which paid off!

Today I bring to my blog our first two days in Bali! For my boyfriend he had been to Bali before when he was younger but for me, it was my first time! For our first few days on the island we stayed at the Mercure hotel in Kuta! My choice of staying in the Kuta area was really a great choice as the location of our hotel was perfect! Across the beach, near lots of shopping, massage parlors, food and even malls and a huge water park!

My first home made Tiramisu!

Dreamy Tiramisu!   I've always wondered why people seem to get all starry-eyed over tiramisu and always never understood what made it so popular...that was until I made this bad boy at home with the boyfriend! My grandma's and mother's love of tiramisu was why I chose to make this dessert, also our home's in wall large oven was out of order since the end of December! As of two weeks ago we finally have a new oven and it's been fabulous. Now more about this tiramisu!

Pastel berry toned eyes with creamy pink lips!

Pastel hues and a creamy pink lip! Unlike those in places with four seasons and weather that's more temperate, here in sunny always hot Singapore there's no real shift of seasons or change of weather! Hence I dress the same all year round and wear all kinds of colors all year round without any sense of my choice of colors having to go with a certain time of the year! 

Currently it's getting to the hottest and also wettest part of the year and I've had to switch over to gel eyeliners and a thick layer of powder in order to keep my make up looking good all day long. This pretty pastel looking look was done a few months back when I picked up my Sleek i-divine Candy palette and wanted to do a blue/pink/purple look!

Review: Revlon Lip Butters! (Cherry Tart, Lollipop, Pink Truffle)

Lip butters to the rescue! Yes, I know these have been out forever and aren't anything new but as a girl who suffers from constantly sensitive and dry lips these babies from Revlon have been a long time love of mine since they released in Singapore.

Unlike in the US, we did not receive all the colors sold in other countries at once. We still actually do not have all the shades sold in some countries. Regardless ever since my purchase of my first few back in 2012, I still use them regularly and love them!

Foodie day: 4 Fingers Crispy Chicken and a BBQ at home!

Crispy chicken and a BBQ! As many of you know, my blog is frequented by two main things: beauty things and foodie things! Today I bring you two food occasions that I had last month, firstly an at home BBQ I had with my boyfriend and a delicious fast food meal at a fried chicken place that's super popular in Singapore!

Having a BBQ with friends and family is a common weekend of occasion meal which many singaporeans like to have however it's not something I do more than twice a year usually despite having a garden with my home!

Tag: The Blush Addict Tag!

Brought to you by The Blush Queen! Yes, this tag has been long in waiting, I knew from the moment I saw it that I was going to do it, no question about that. I've been given the name or called 'Blush queen' by several lovely ladies in the blogging community and I accept the title graciously. I do not have the largest, most varied or interesting blush collection however I'm pretty sure due to the fact that I'm known for my pretty flawless, sculpted and generous applications of blusher (as seen in my many FOTDs) that was how this name came about.

I'm going to be bloody honest. I could not stick to single answers for most of the questions. I mean, I wear all my blushes and love them all and it's impossible for me to just use one for more than a few days consecutively. Please take the time to see this tag done by the ladies from AngelicBetrayal, Sleep and Water, Ad Astra and Status.Chlo!

Clothes and swimsuit haul from April! (New Look, Denizen, Berksha, La Senza)

Haulage from April! I used to almost never shop for clothing in my teenage years, wearing the same favorite baggy t-shirt and loose pants for a year or two until I could be bothered to buy more of the same thing. I plan to eventually do a post looking back into my teenage years as I am basically unrecognizable compared to then. Until then, here's a small haul of some clothes and a few swim suits I had picked up before my beach holiday in Bali which I took two weeks ago!

Some of the swim suits were not recently bought but I wanted to show them in this haul anyway as I was modelling the newer ones and decided to take photos of all of them!

Rave Review: Maybelline Big Eyes eyeshadow in GD-1!

Big Eyes eyeshadows! From my knowledge these eyeshadow quads from Maybelline have been released in Singapore for more than a year now. In singapore we get 4 varieties of this quad, two browns, a gold and a peach toned one. This range of shadows is designed and packaged very differently from the 'Big Eyes' eyeshadows being sold in the US/UK which have more colorful shades, more variety and also have very different packaging!

It's been quite a long time that I've purchased any powder eyeshadows from Mayblline and I still actually want to try some of the Maybelline studio quads which were are so widely sold in the US. After a swatches the 4 quads we had I knew that I didn't want just more browns so I went for this gorgeous gold quad!

Sexy Smoked Navy Blue eyes! (Japanese Ramen lunch)

Sexy, smoked and blue! Although I do love trying out lots of colors, combinations of colors and such when it comes to eye make up I always go back to blue when I want something that's edgy, darker and sultry. There's something about dark eyes lined with shimmery navy blue and black that makes the eyes pop and look more defined without being too dark and grungy.

On this particular day, I got a bit more fancy with my eye make up than usual and did a smoked navy blue eye accompanied with the last pair of my dolly wink lashes before heading out into town with my mom for the day!

Review: Zoeva Sun Power Blush Palette!

Sun Power Blushes! For those who don't already know I am a crazy blush maniac! I love powder blushes, especially a good shimmery, glowy one! I used to be exclusively in love with berry pink types of shades and rosy tones but the last few years I've totally dipped and then submerged my toes into all the other major blush colors and have loved them all!

This purchase was actually made now almost a year ago on! After having seen many rave reviews on their single blushes I was having a hard time deciding which one I wanted, hence when I saw this blush palette from them, retailing at only double the price of a single blush...I HAD TO GET IT. There were almost no reviews or photos of this palette, therefore it was a slight chance I was taking!

Special: My dad's birthday dinner at House of Seafood! (2015)

Seafood Birthday Dinner! To celebrate my dad's birthday this year we went in search of a seafood restaurant which we used to frequent that used to be at a location near us. 'House of Seafood' has several outlets in Singapore and although it's not a large chain and not as famous of Jumbo Seafood but has quality chinese dishes and super fresh seafood! 

It's a tradition in our family like many chinese families to celebrate special occasions with food more than anything else! My family tends to go for seafood meals that usually include prawns, crabs or both!

Review: Innisfree Mineral single shadow in shade 09!

Earthy rich burgundy mineral shadow! For the ladies who have followed or seen my reviews and snap shots from my make up collection I have plenty of palettes and the majority of my shadows are from palettes! When I first got into make up I used to buy more singles, duos and trio shadow palettes but as I got older I lusted after larger palettes but now have reverted!

Larger palettes are gorgeous and I still get all happy when I see so much variety in colors but I realize that there's no point in collection large palettes when I don't use all the shades or rarely use them. Hence now I'm keen on purchasing more single and small shadow palettes! I've had my eyes on single shadows from Etude House and when I saw Innisfree's I just HAD to get one!

Special: Celebrating my 4th blogiversary GIVEAWAY! (CLOSED)

Happy 4th blogiversary! Yes! I hope it doesn't seem too self-celebratory but as of the end of April my blog, The Blackmentos Beauty Blog celebrates 4 years! I only however only consistency blogged the last 3 years so to me the thought of being on year five now is quite mind boggling! My blog was started very humbly, without any ambition or becoming anything in particular. It started with my best friend Anna (who is currently far away in Japan) telling me that since I like make up and am good at writing that I should start a blog!

Only in the last two years with more blog networking and communication with other bloggers has my followers grown significantly. I never thought that at 8 followers about a year after starting this blog that more people would actually follow my blog. Hence I'm very grateful for each and every person who reads my content, whether or not you're a follower or you leave comments or not.
