Hey Everyone,

hihihi

To this day, I have lost just about 10kg since I started my “weightloss journey” three months ago and I have to say that I’ve come to the conclusion that losing weight isn’t just about losing weight. It’s a life lesson – something that feels like climbing Mt. Everest at times and other times, you don’t really think about it. As with any emotional and physical journey, one thing is for sure, you can always come out of it learning something. Weight loss is no exception. Today I wanted to talk about my journey – what I’ve learnt and what I’ve come to understand. But first, let’s start from the beginning.

I’ve always been more of a foundation girl, much more than bb or cc creams. It’s just that my skin has always been on perpetual breakout mode these days so I feel like I need the coverage and finding a good coverage foundation can be difficult. Some can feel too thick resulting in a cakey mess or others just don’t hit the coverage spot. One foundation I’ve been loving is Dior’s latest foundation – the Dior Diorskin Star that I have been in love with!

I was invited to try out this foundation first at the Dior counters. The Dior sales assistant told me that this foundation is special because of the particles inside that reflect light on all dimensions – similar to how a sphere reflects light. They also had this device at the counter that measures automatically what shade you are. I was a mix of two shades – 010 and 020 but I find that I always pick the lightest shade so I went with the darker one. It’s a little too dark though. As much as I love Dior foundations, I feel like they never have my perfect shade so this ends up being a little darker than I’d like. But the weird thing is, when I first apply it on my skin, it looks really fair.  A few minutes pass, it does change color a little bit resulting in a darker tone. That’s I guess something to keep in mind if you want to get one for yourself.

Today I just wanted to let you in on a pretty cool eyeliner find – the Sephora Smart Liner! Unlike your regular pen shapes, this one is bent and is supposed to follow the curve of your hand so that it feels like you have more control. I’ve basically finished mine and I reckon it would be perfect for beginners. Let’s find out more!

First of all, this is my eye without any eyeliner. I’ve added some eyeshadow because I don’t normally go out the house without any on.

When you pop the cap open, the tip of the eyeliner is actually like a sharp felt tip marker. It in fact is very similar to the Stila Stay All Day Eyeliner. I’m glad it is because brush tips are not suitable for beginners because they can be harder to control whereas a felt tip is much more user friendly.

Can you believe it? It’s already October. I’m sure you agree with me that 2014 is flying by super fast and soon it will be my favourite season of the entire year – the holidays and of course Christmas! With the holidays comes the season of giving and that’s when a lot of our favourite makeup brands create really cool gift sets. I was invited to the Sephora Singapore Holiday Press Day to see what is in store this year! This is an event I never miss because each prominent brand in Sephora holds a booth on this day and they fly their international representatives over to talk about what they have to offer. Here’s what I loved best from the amazing selection!

Hey Everyone!

hihi

I don’t know about you, but I am a huge fan of The Simpsons! I grew up with it! I used to come home and literally wait for the show to air at about 6PM everyday on the local TV. It’s so funny but it has some grown up humor as well that I love! So when M.A.C came out with The Simpsons collection, I was so excited.

I managed to get my hands on one palette from the collection – Marge’s Extra Ingredients. I believe there are a few more eyeshadow quads from the collection but I feel this is the most wearable of the lot because purples tend to suit any skin tone!The quad is so cute. On the front, Marge is peeking out at you! I reckon this might be her eyeshadow palettes if she did use make-up. Marge’s Extra Ingredients seems to be inspired by her hair I believe! When you open up the palette, you have four shades and I love how each of them is imprinted with Marge’s face as well. So adorable. This particular palette comes with Harpooned Heart (a light pink), Sexy PB & J (a deep purple), Beehive Blue (a cosmic blue) and Vivacious Vacuum Cleaner (a blue black). Don’t you love the names?

Hey Everyone!

August through insta
For me, instagram isn’t just a place for me to post pretty pictures of make-up, it’s a place where I can share my life with all of you! I personally love reading about people’s lives through instagram on other blogs so today I thought I’d do one to pretty much to summarise my month of August! August was a particularly busy and amazing month for me so I’m excited to share my snapshots of the month!

First of all, one of my best friends, Rinku, is back from the States! We met way back in Middle School and we used to wait for the MRT bus together after school. We had a few classes together as well – including Social Studies and Psych! Good times with this girl! Got to watch Hundred Foot Journey the other day at The Cathay and snapped this selfie of us! The best thing about it is that it looks like it was taken with a proper digital camera right? Nope, it’s my Samsung GALAXY K zoom LTE camera smartphone! I wanted to take a moment and show you my recent amazing discovery called Selfie Alarm on my phone and how I get to take amazing quality selfies now without being afraid that I’m out of frame when I use the back camera! Of course, the back camera takes the best quality pictures but can be difficult to use because you can’t see yourself when you take a selfie!
