The Peach Lip Edit

The Peach Lip Edit

So a while back, last winter, I had my sheer red lipstick phase. That's done with now. Time for peach! This is a tricky colour because if it's too light it doesn't look good on me, if it's too pink it ends up looking too coral. The best way that I've found for me to pull off peach is when it's sheer! For more opaque shades though, using a lip liner makes it more wearable. Here are my picks for peach lipsticks (and one lip gloss) that I've been loving this summer!   Time…Read more
Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipstick in Brun Bohéme

Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipstick in Brun Bohéme

If there's one thing I miss while travelling, it's proper tea! Tea bags just don't do it me... Does anyone else feel this way? I'm settling in nicely now though. Back at work, all unpacked, I've just started loading in all the photos from the trip. This is quick review on Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipstick in Brun Bohéme. The colour here is key, a really nice brick red, rusty brown-red kind of colour. It looks muted and not too brown. Rouge Edition is quite an old range but at the time there weren't too many…Read more
Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream in Bronze

Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream in Bronze

Hey guys! Hope you're week is going well! I'm super busy and tired these days. I know I just took a break last month but I need another! One of my 2014 favourites was this CC cream which I use as my everyday base.  Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream in Bronze great lightweight base if you don't like wearing foundation. I actually find it somewhere in between a foundation and a tinted moisturizer. It's available in four shades and I'm using the darkest one. It's a little bit darker than Mac C4. I think it…Read more
Best of Makeup 2014!

Best of Makeup 2014!

Hope everyone had lovely holidays! I think half my classmates got married just this weekend. I'm a very passive facebook user, logged in after a long time and the wedding photos were overwhelming! It was lovely though. :) Time to get teary eyed about all my favourites this year now! It took a long time to create this post, mainly because I went through my entire collection to pick things out. Ended up with 30 lipsticks that I narrowed down to around 10. Emotional heart-breaking decisions all over the place! I'm also positive that I've missed out…Read more

October 2014 Favourites

Time for the monthly favourites. I've had such a crazy Monday, I just want to talk about makeup! A  bunch of things I've been using for the last 2-3 months and some are more recent favourites. So here goes!   01. Lorac Pro Palette :: So I finally got this a few months back and it's pretty much replaced my UD Naked palette. I love the colours!

August 2014 Favourites

It's that time of the month to share my favourites! I have a few unusual ones here, because I can't really bring myself to fully review a hand wash and a hand sanitizer. Let's get cracking!       01. Eye Cream : Clinique : All About Eyes Rich : Review After my trip in June, my eye area was in serious trouble. It was extremely dry and I thought it might be best to start using an eye cream. Now, this is mainly for hydrating the area. Other concerns like dark circles…Read more
Bourjois Sweet Kiss Natural Lipstick in Rose Delicat

Bourjois Sweet Kiss Natural Lipstick in Rose Delicat

I'm loving this week, the weather's been so awesome! I love it when it rains dead in the middle of summer! Most consider Bourjois a drugstore brand but with the prices and overall quality I put it in the same group as mid-high end like Mac, Too Faced etc. Naturally, my expectations are higher. The Bourjois Sweet Kiss Natural Lipstick range are (supposedly) made of all natural ingredients, creamy high pigmented lipsticks with a creamy satin like finish. I have the shade 08 Rose Delicat which a medium rosy pink.  It's not too bright…Read more
Bourjois Cream Blush in Healthy Glow

Bourjois Cream Blush in Healthy Glow

This is such a cute product! It's the famous little round pot but now it houses a cream blush! Bourjois launched four shades in their Cream Blush range. I'm reviewing the shade 02 Healthy Glow. It's a light peachy apricot colour. It tends to look a little bit more peachy pink on the skin and there's also very subtle gold shimmer running through it. I find that the shimmer is more apparent in heavy swatches but not so much after your blend it. The colour is something that will suit both cool and…Read more

Hey guys! Is it raining in your city? I swear it's been raining atleast once a month since October! It's insane, but I'm not complaining! ^_^ Here are my favourites for Feb and Jan 2014! To be honest, this is a small favourites post because most of the things I'm using I've already covered multiple times in other posts!       01. Exfoliant : Dermalogica : Gentle Cream Cleanser I've already reviewed it but it's a really good chemical exfoliant. Love this!   02. Moisturizer : Korres : Wild Rose 24hr Moisturising Cream…Read more

December 2013 Favourites

It feels incredibly weird to say, but today's my birthday!! Happy Birthday to me!! Turning 25 today which is a bit depressing... mentally I think I'm still 10!

For now, here are my favourites for December! I did a little haul last month which is kinda part of my birthday haul, so some new products are…Read more
