Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner - Intense Black

This image shows the full review and swatch on Stila Stay All Day Liquid Eye Liner in Intense Black.

2 weeks ago, I broke up with Maybelline Hyperglossy Liquid Liner. It has been my holy grail for 3 years and counting but I finally decided to move on and try something new... </3. One of the things I've learnt from wearing a new liner after yonks? It's not as easy as it looks! When you've been using a flimsy liquid liner brush for your winged liner, it takes a lot of concentration to use a firm, felt tip liner. Surprisingly, it didn't take long for me to get a hold of it! I've got the low down on Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Liner in Intense Black.

This image shows a full review of the NARS Dual Intensity Blush in Fervor.

If you follow me on Snapchat (@curlsandmints), you might have seen my mini "review" of the NARS Dual-Intensity Blush in Fervor. I included swatches and a video on how I apply it on the cheeks. Missed it? I'll give you a run down...and yes, I saved my snaps just for this post. Talk about being committed :p

Too Faced Born This Way Foundation - Golden

This image shows the review of Too Faced Born This Way Foundation in Golden

QUICK STORY: As I was browsing through the aisles of Sephora last week, I saw a lady squinting her eyes to my direction. She looked awfully familiar so I approached her while mentally skimming through usernames of my followings on Instagram and it was Sharmain! She told me my eyes looked familiar LOL that's a first! We've been following each other for awhile now and it's nice to meet someone with the same interests ;) She told me to check out the new Too Faced Born This Way foundation we are. Ready?

Essence Gel Nail Polish - Serendipity

This image shows an Essence gel nail polish in the shade serendipity.

And the most worn to death nail polish shade for the month of July 2015 goes to none other then Serendipity by Essence! I'm a sucker for drugstore nail varnishes and after seeing Claire in many muted-pastel-eque shades on her nails, I thought this was the closet dupe to what she was wearing because trust me when I say I won't spend $26 on a nail varnish! Well, maybe it's just the cheapskate in me talking but hell, why get the pricer version when you can get the inexpensive item at half the price?

How do I justify to everyone that my love for makeup is deep without sounding like a shallow, psychotic hoarder who's emotionally attached to every single damn beauty product that I currently own? I guess I just did. Point is, it took me almost 2 months to whip out the NARS Dual Intensity Eyeshadow palette because it is just so.darn.pretty!!!!

Last Weekend's Cake

This image shows a makeup look for hair rays 2015

I had a pretty good long weekend, which is odd to mention because I just ended another weekend¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Anyway, there was no work on Friday (July 17th) because of EID (god bless public holidays), so half of the time I was either in a food coma or burping from the excessive consumption of sodas. With that aside, celebrating EID with my family also means I had the excuse to dress up my face and get away with it. But then again, I do it all time :p
