March Make up haul! This is just a bunch of stuff I sort of got all at once, YES, all at once! I have no idea when I will come across a booth with Smoochiez, so since I knew I would be working soon, starting tomorrow I took the chance and got myself a bunch of lovely things!

Tag: How much is my face worth?

My face is worth how much?? One of the more interesting tags that I really liked seeing and got me thinking about my own spending and usage of make up is this tag about the products we'd use on a regular face of make up and the total cost!

Below I've done an overview of what i'd normally use together with alternatives of what else I'd typically reach for as well! Links to reviews and prices are all stated below!

Continue below for the tag and details!

Quick review: Za liquid concealer!

'Facelift in progress?'  That's what Za's Concealer Perfection has been labelled as when I saw it in the store a while back! This line has since been repackaged in pink and I think maybe reformulated too! It's a pretty darn good concealer having used this on and off for the last year!

March haul: Peplum and casual tops craze! (Forever 21, Cotton on)

Peplum mayhem! I recently got a chance to run through Forever 21 and Cotton on during my term break and I ended up getting all these casual, comfortable and easy to wear and match peplum and simple tops! Been clothes shopping the last three weeks too much! I really must hold back next month and I think I will because I'll be starting my internship soon with little spare time!

Any spare time will go to blogging, cooking, gardening and spending time with my boyfriend!

Hair: Organix Hydrating Macadamia Oil Conditioner and Mask!

Nourishing yummy macadamia hair care!

Having heard about the rave over different types of hair oils like Argan the last two years I personally didn't want to try any Argan oil products due to the recent years of over harvesting the argan fruit. Instead I got myself some Macadamia oil products from the ever popular Organix hair line!

Review: Laura Mercier Shimmer Bloc in Pink Mosaic!

Laura Mercier Shimmer Bloc goodness! Feast your eyes on one of my first high end buy in a long time, a first from Laura Mercier! I was sooo tempted to get a foundation from them as my first purchase from their brand but then I noticed these lovely testers! There were four shades for this in the Sephora I went into although there are 6 shades available in the full line!

FOTD: A quick green and teal lined eye look!

Green and teal lined love! I personally love green and teals and blues! When I'm lazy, I go either neutral or just line my eyes with colored eyeliners! I know, not much skill is involved in lining eyes neatly but that's my way of being quick and not fussy when I'm in a rush to see my other half!

Super quick and easy green and teal lined eyes!

March Food Post: Three Japanese places (Rakuichi, Ichiban Sushi, Menya Musashi)!

I love Japanese foooood!! As someone who doesn't eat out on a regular basis in restuarants...when I do eat out with my boyfriend or mom I love to eat Japanese food! I don't know what it is about it, the simpleness of the flavors, the clean tastes, the colors and variety of ingredients, I love everything about Japanese food!

Here are three Japanese restaurants I ate at with my family, mother and then my boyfriend!

Overview: My Bourjois Blush Collection (Rose Ambre, Rose de Jaspe, Lilas D'or, Santal, Brun Cuivre)!

Feast your eyes on my magic pots! If you've never heard or experience Bourjois little pot blushes it's about time you've been enlightened! I've been using these for more than a year now, collected them bit by bit. Bourjois has many more shades than the five I own but I find several of them quite similar and some too dark for my liking.

They are of consistently great quality and as I've reviewed in the past, I love how there's been attention paid to the packaging of the blushes. The exterior matches the shade and finishing of the product inside! (Check out my review for 3 of them here!)

Continue below for the overview!

February: Things to Trash and Rejects!

Finally a break! The next whole week maybe just the only solid week of break I'll be having in the next wish me luck. I got off school today, was walking around and saw booths selling some skincare and make up at great discounted prices!

Then, I saw the NYX booth which belongs to a seller in Singapore called 'Smoochiez', she brings in cosmetics, nail polish and some accessories that aren't easily found in Singapore or which can be found like OPI but sells them a lot cheaper!

I've held off some many times from buying things from her booths but today I cracked and picked up a bunch! Anyway....enjoy checking out my empties and things to trash!

Continue below to see the things I've trashed!
Old and unused products! Time to trash them all out for good!

FOTD: Soft plum eye with fairy lashes!

Plum perfection! I've been horrendously busy with school and other things on my weekends and days off, so do excuse me for my less frequent posts! I'm dying to finish up some reviews and do some food post as I've been cooking a lot!

This was the look I created to go out with my family the weekend after chinese new year to visit family friends. I wanted feminine, soft, pretty and wearable and chose to go with plummy rosy shades!

Rave Review: Red Earth Illusion Lights eyeshadow in 03 Forever Ever!

Metallic, wearable and neutral! I'm now completely in love with Redearth single eyeshadows! I've already tried one shade called "Iced Brownie" a short while ago and it was amazing which depth in color that wasn't expected!

(Check out my review for my first Redearth shadow here!)

I went back and ended up picking up another neutral shade. The range is small and there are two browns, this is the lighter one, almost a bit peachy gold.
