Limecrime Velveltines

Hello hello world,

If you have no idea or heard about this product… where have u been??? This is a very popular lipstick/stain.  The name of the product says it all.  VELVELTines.  If you are looking for a longwearing and transfer proof, this is it!!

After applying this liquid lipstick, it changes into this beautiful matt velvet texture that once its on, its not going to budge (even after a big meal with friends).  When I first got these, there was only 3 shades ( Suedeberry, red velvet and pink velvet), but they have recently come out with 3 more shades but on the darker side (salem, wicked and black velvet).

I have it in RED VELVET and PINK VELVET.  Hands down my HOLY GRAIL lip product.  I get so many compliments when wearing this product.  Give it a go if you haven’t.

Younique 3d Mascara

Hello world =)

My cousins have recently told me about this ” Younique 3d Mascara “, how amazing and wonderful it is.  To be honest, I wasn’t really interested, I was happy with my current mascara routine.  BUT being a supportive cousin, I thought why not.

I have tried something similar in the past.  I did like it but my issue with the product is that, it did take a bit of extra time in the morning for me to use it.  [Confession: I work as a dental front desk receptionist, and I do love  LOVE my sleep hahaha.  So most of the time,  I like my makeup time to be as short as possible to get to work on time.]

Pros:  SUPER LONG LASHES. no questions asked.

Cons:  Takes a bit of time.

Overall, I really like it for weekends when I have extra time to get ready and also for going out at night.  It saves me time from trying to stick falsies on (I kind of suck at it >_____< and its time consuming if you can’t get it right the first time).  You will get compliments while using it.  I’ve been asked quite a few times.  If you guys are interested, get in contact with my cousin Kimmi =)

Fav Lip combo ^^

hello world =)

It has been awhile since I last posted something. I have been really busy with work and personal life. BUT I am back and I want to share with you ladies what I have been using and discovered for my lips.

20121012-161445.jpg

| “NYX” soft matte lip cream – Istanbul | “Laura Mercier” Lip Glace – Bare blush | “EOS” lip balm – Strawberry sobert |

I’ve spoken already about Laura Mercier lip gloss in one of my previous posts. NYX lip cream has always been something I wanted to try. But like most american products its very hard to get because we have to purchase them online AND pay for crazy postage prices. I finally decided to buy a whole bunch of things from “Cherryculture” so I was paying postage for all them products in one go, so why not. =) I LOVE IT. LOVE LOVE LOVE it. Very smooth and it doesn’t have the sticky feeling like you would with most lip glosses. I do wear it on it’s own. But when I want a little bit of a shine, I just use the LM lip gloss on top.

EOS. Nothing super great about this. I think its the packaging thats really cute and different, is where most of the hype is. It is moisterizing but its nothing any lip balm like “pawpaw” or “bertsbee” can’t do. I think its super cute and I want them all just because its cute… ^__________________________^ oh one negative thing.. I don’t really like the smell… I got the strawberry one and a honeydew one for my boyfriend and we both think they both smell a little similar with a hint of difference… if you know what I mean.

These three together has been really nice for me for everyday wear. EOS (moisture) > NYX (colour) > LM (gloss) Perfect combo! LOVE! OH! whats another nice NYX colour to try in the lip creams? or what are your fav lip combos?

Best Face Powder ♥

Sana – Pore Putty Clear ♥

I have only recently started using this face powder on the recommendation of YouTube guru “Secretlifeofabionerd” AND its AAAMAZZING !!!

At first I was really skiptical because I have never tried Asian makeup before except for the Liole BB cream.  I got it because “Secretlifeofabionerd” her makeup looked great !! So flawless (so jealous).

Everyone at work has complimented me on having such smooth and bright skin.  And asking me what I am eating or doing different? hehehe its such a nice feeling getting complimented.  Another really good thing with this powder is that it really does control my oily face.  I use to have to use powder at lunch or pat my face with the oil sheets, but after using this I noticed that it’s only when I get home at night that its oily.  That’s really good as I’m usually at work by 8-8.30am.  I also found that it actually did cover my large pores!! (AMAZING)

I love the packaging, its so cute and compact to fit in my bag.  Its suppose to be a clear powder but after using couple of times, there is a foundation colour that comes off on the sponge that comes with it.  I use the sponge that it comes with because I use a patting motion to apply it,  it seems to work better that way.  I did try using a brush with it, but to I feel like it doesn’t distribute the product correctly and it doesn’t look as smooth.  My skin colour is very fair.  It’s NC20-25.

I really do recommend this product ladies =)  I got mine from SASA.com.  its the cheapest can could find.

2. Do you still read fashion magazines, and if you do which is your favorite one? If you don’t, why did you stop reading them? hmmm I don’t really anymore.  Unless it’s at a hair salon/doctors/dentist surgery in the waiting room.  I stopped because I tend to just read blogs adn watch youtube videos AND just buy whatever I feel comfortable wearing and looks good on me.

3. What is your biggest skincare concern? PIMPLES!! and dry flakey skin *shivers* I struggle with these two problems especially when the season is changing, and it makes me feel ugly. (>_<)

5. If you have to choose: Shakira or JLo, and why? JLo and I honestly don’t know why. Just because.  Shakira hasn’t made any hits recently and JLo has some pretty good songs out at the moment.

6. Favorite female or male model? Female-Mirander Kerr / Male-Tyson Beckford

7. Cosmetic brand you would take to a deserted island, and why? Sunscreen.  I don’t want to be crispy and peeling.

8. Cosmetic brand you would pull the plug on? (Bury never to be seen or heard from again). I honestly don’t know about this one… because a lot of brands have BAAAAAD products BUT they also have products that are also good… So I cant pull a plug on any practicular cosmetic brand… UNLESS!! people duped them.  Then its fake.  Not cool.

9. If you could only use one makeup product for the rest of your life, what would it be, and why? Fake lashes.  They make such a difference with OR without makeup.  I love them.  I wish my natural lashes were like crazy dramatic and full. sighs..

Revlon Colorstay Whipped

I have heard soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo many good things about this foundation that I was so excited when I found out that it came out in Australia.  I did alot of research into the foundation.  Watching all my YouTube gurus do very positive reviews.  If you follow my blog, you know that I did post about this foundation couple weeks ago.  I loved it.  It went on really smooth and the colour was perfect.

I am sad to say now, I hate it.  Very say BUT ture.   After 3 weeks of use, I started to notice that my cheeks were so itchy during the day and that it would make my cheeks red and bumpy.  To the point that when I apply the foundation, it give my cheeks this burning sensation… uh oh not good at all.  I was so wishing it wasn’t the foundation.. =( but it is.  It has been two weeks now that I went back to my Chanel or sometimes I use my BB cream by Liole when I wake up late.  And I can positively say, my cheeks are so much better and not itchy.

Sighs..  I’m really sad this foundation didn’t work for me because everyone is saying that it works so well.  Is there anyone else out there found this foundation didn’t work for them aswell?  And what is your suggestion for a smiliar foundation? Urban decay skin? I heard this is a good foundation also.. hmm…
