Hey Everyone!

I’ve been getting used to using an eyebrow pencil lately and have been really liking the strong brow look. I usually use an eyebrow powder but at times I feel that it can’t do super sharp lines and it’s pigmentation is obviously lacking too. It’s good as a natural brow but for something with a little kick, I’ve been using a pencil. Probably the most popular eyebrow pencil is a particular one from M.A.C called Spiked. I’ll be doing a little tutorial on how easy strong brows can be!

First of all, the M.A.C Spiked Eye Brows Pencil is pretty amazing. It comes as a thin pencil that is thankfully automatic so you don’t have to sharpen it. It also has quite a narrow tip so that drawing specific lines is quite convenient. Spiked is a chocolate brown that is quite dark and more suitable for very dark brown to black hair tones. Although it’s really whatever floats your boat. A general rule of thumb is that your brows should be no more than 1 or 2 shades lighter than your hair color.

Today I’m going to be doing a review and tutorial of a gorgeous eye palette – the Lancome Hypnose Palette Star Eyes in Brun Au Naturel! I have been loving this lately and I also have another shade in Taupe Au Naturel. They give the prettiest and most naturally enhancing eye looks in a simple compact form that is easy to carry to work or wherever you’re headed!

The palette boasts an innovative “wet” eyeshadow technology that allows the shadow to have a range of intensities with a multi dimensional and even texture! They’re pigmented and although they have matte shades, they aren’t chalky which is really important. The palette comes with 5 colors that you can use for day to night make-up and two types of applicators which do come in handy on the go.

Hey Everyone,

ok

Let’s be honest, I’ve gained a lot of weight coming back from Uni. I was flipping through some pictures today and I was totally really honestly quite taken a back at myself. It wasn’t that I was self critical of myself but more that I was confused. Not at how I got there – honestly speaking, I totally deserve every single pound due to my naughty eating habits and well l blame it on work. Everyone does right? I am totally at blame for my poundage. I totally accept that I’ve gotten fatter and it has gotten to a point where people can tell me as many times as they want “You’re fat” and my reply is simply “Yes I am fat.”

Today I will doing a review on a recent purchase in London – the Rimmel Apocalips! I first heard about these amazing lip lacquers from a fellow youtuber @sunnydahye who insisted I tried them. The recent withdrawal of all Rimmel products from Singapore didn’t allow me to so when I saw it here in London at my local Boots, I made a quick grab to add them to my basket. I thought they’d go on too bold for me to be honest swatching them at the store but I was really surprised at how smooth and lightweight they are.

There are just about 7 or 8 shades of these Apocalips and I got the pretty much the boldest picks of the lot – Stellar and Apocaliptic. There are nudes, a neutral and a couple reds and plums as well. As you know, my standard lip is a good hot pink so I’m always on the hunt for my next favourite when it comes to this shade. These were 6.49 pounds and I had a 3 for 2 deal at Boots which was great. I love the packaging – in this kind of black diamond mountain like appeal as if it’s “earth-shattering” and the applicator is cool in that it has a pocket for the product. This ensures that you don’t have to keep on dipping back into the tube for more which is an issue I always have.

I’m in London! I’ve actually been in London for the past week and will be here for the rest of the month! It’s been a good year and a half since my last time here and to be honest right now, I really don’t want this holiday to end! Anyway, follow me on instagram @roseannetangrs for all my London adventures! I will probably be uploading a travel vlog soon! One thing I cannot resist is buying make-up here. I really can’t help myself and I always leave with at least something whenever I visit a Boots or Superdrug (which you would think is extremely dangerous for my wallet)! Sleek, BarryM, Rimmel and cooler Maybelline and L’Oreal products are all readily available here so here’s my haul (so far). I’m sure I will be getting more as the week goes by!

Being fair in Asia is as popular as being tan in the states or in Australia. My mum and sister still wear umbrellas when it’s hot and sunny out and whitening products are common throughout all Asian countries. It’s super popular and something even I love and desire to achieve! Today I’ll be doing a review on something pretty special – the Vaseline Healthy White Instant Fair Visible Fairness Lotion! It’s an affordable and mass market product that is unique because it claims to not only help with melanin formation and hyper-pigmentation over time but it also claims to make you up to 4 times fairer!
