Special: Halloween Cleopatra inspired make up look! (2015)

Happy Halloween everyone! For those who are in America and Canada I'm sure that Halloween is quite a big deal as well as a tradition and fun occasion for families! I only knew about this celebration growing up because I had many American teachers at the International Schools I attended. Halloween isn't anywhere as relevant in Asia in general and if you go knocking on people's door for candy probably 9/10 people will not have any treats to give to trick-o-treaters!

Halloween and all the knick knacks that go with it such as costumes, accessories, themed treats and events are now much more common in Asia but recently I'm most impressed by the gals on youtube who do amazingly artistic make up looks for the occasion! I was inspired by Elizabeth Taylor's Cleopatra look and decided to go just go all out and create my version of a Cleopatra look!

Rave Review: MAC's Mineralize Blush in Love Joy!

Bring me that Love Joy! When I was younger I was under the impression that in order to say that you had "good make up" you had to have make up from MAC cosmetics! I'm not saying now that they're not good but I still don't own anything much from them just because buying MAC here isn't very convenient and is quite costly. I used to own a few single shadows but that was a long time ago and since then I've been wanting to try their bases however this mineralize blush and another in the shade 'gentle' (my review here) were purchases I made last year at the Singapore Airport!

Food Post: What I ate during for the month of August! (local Chinese, Thai, Japanese, Tacos)

Yummy, Nommy, Food! Everything delicious or that looks delicious usually tempts me in someway or another but I'll admit I've always been a sucker for savory foods more so than sweet treats! Those who have been following me for a while or who have seen my 'food posts' or posts of days out will know that I love taking photos food. I don't photograph everything though, I find it pointless to photograph everything I eat as not everything is worth documenting or sharing (but I know some people who do!!).

This food post is quite delayed as it's for the month of August! I had so many great food days in August from eating local chinese food at a new coffeeshop near my home, Thai food, really good Japanese, home made tacos, frozen pizzas and more!

Continue below for all the delicious food!
Chinese from Crystal Jade: Braise beef noodle soup, mushrooms and broccoli, sweet and sour pork, charsiew noodle soup and har gao dumplings! Everything was great but we wished the portions were bigger!

Review: Canmake Perfect Stylist Eyes in 07 Gateau Framboise!

Gateau Framboise on your eyes! For those who have been reading my reviews for a while, it's no surprise that I've had a love with Canmake's single blushes for years. It's hard to resist the girly, young and princess vibes that the brand gives off in general and even now I'm a fan. I've also tried their trio eyeshadow in the past as well as most recently their "Strong Eyes Liner" which was really good and I'm still currently using.

This eyeshadow palette was kindly provided to me by a local company which has an online shop called 'T-Supply Company" , they carry a modest range of make up products, accessories as well as health supplements! If you reside in Singapore do check them out as there will be a discount code I'll be sharing in this review!

Mega Empties: Six months of skincare and beauty empties! (Jan to July 2015)

Super empties time! Many of us beauty crazed ladies find a certain sense of pleasure when we hit pan, finish up and throw out a product! I've really been doing a really good job the last year making sure to use up products before buying new ones to add to my collection. Today's post is a compilation of beauty and skincare products which I've either used up or cleared out. I've got so much in this post so do expect the same amount of empties that some people might throw out in a few years!

Feel free to scroll through my post just to see what I've thrown out! I don't expect people to read everything I've written when it comes to a mega empties post but if you are keen on how I felt about the individual products I have very briefs notes below!

Rave Review: Chanel Les 4 Ombres eyeshadow in 226 Tisse Rivoli!

Les 4 Ombres Tisse Rivoli! Oh you guys have no clue how happy I've been with this high end baby in my claws! I've ever only owned high end eyeshadows through palettes from duty free but never just a palette which I've been craving forever! I always tend to hold off buying anything so that I can actually make the most informed decision in terms of which colors I want as I tend to look at swatches and WANT EVERYTHING! Chanel's quads were no exception, I wasn't sure which one to go for until I swatched them in person at the airport and Sephora.

I decided to go with the gorgeous neutral quad tisse rivoli as I was so impressed by the dimensions of the colors in person and felt that I could never get sick of reaching out for these four shades. Although I'm someone who really likes colors I realized neutrals would be used more and I want to use my high end products and not let me sit in storage!

Haul: Clothes and my Birthday drugstore haul! (New Look, H&M, Zara)

Repurchases, pretty clothes and new bits! I'm very happy to report that for the last few months I've really held back on shopping for clothes, make up and skincare! The most major purchases I've made are from the last month (august being my birthday month) where I got some new clothing bits from here and there as well as a nice big shop at my favorite drugstore Watsons here in Singapore!

I always look forward every year to a big shop at Watsons during August as being my birthday month, my first purchase will get lots of extra points which I like to save up and spend later! This year's Watsons shop compromised of mainly repurchases and back ups with a few new items!

Review: Maybelline Pure BB Mineral BB Compact in 02 Natural!

Mineral BB Compact! Here in Asia we do get some interesting versions and releases of products that are asia exclusive although we get about 1/10 of the permanent products that the big drugstore brands carry and sell in the US/UK/Australia. Most everyone by now has either heard of, tried or owns BB creams and products.

 Maybelline in Asia has released various BB type products from powders, cream foundation, stick foundation and gels! When this cream compact was released more than a year ago I jumped at the chance to try it as I'd never own a compact cream foundation before and thought I'd give it a shot.

Rave Review: Make Over Perfect Shade Blush On Palette!

Get your Blush On! Blush, rouge, color for the cheeks...whatever you call this stuff of magic, I LOVE blush and never thought when I was younger that I be such a blush fiend and addict! Those who are familiar with my make up looks would know how much I love my rouge and how I like to sculpt my face with blush instead of contour or highlight. Here I bring to my blog literally one of the best blush buys I've ever made. Purchase while on holiday with my boyfriend in his hometown Bandung, Indonesia, this palette has full sized blushes and cost the equivalent of one blush in Singapore!

I've always been jealous of how my neighboring countries like Thailand, Philippines and Indonesia all have lots of local make up and skincare brands. This brand which I came across 'Make Over' has an amazing range of brightly colored eyehsadows and lots of range in all their other categories of make up! I just couldn't resist walking into their stand alone store and browse leading to this!

Sheer tropical fruit inspired eye! (lime green, orange, lilac, cranberry)

Light, bright and tropical! I'm definitely one who enjoys playing with color and I like everything from bright to bold to dark to fun! Some time ago I wanted something green and orange but also wanted it to be wearable for the daytime and so I ended up creating this easy to wear colorful look. For me, there never is a wrong time to wear colors on the eyes, it's really up to how you apply them which makes them more suited for day or night. My entire eye look is done with shimmery shadows but I've used shadows with a nice fine shimmer so that it doesn't look too shimmery/chunky in the day time.
