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

Summer Lip Balm

This image shows a full review of the Burts Bees Lip balm in pink grapefruit.

FRUIT PUNCH. Those are the first two words which came to my mind when I smelled this lip balm. Burts Bees makes the best lip balms, not forgetting the delicious scents or in my words, “flavours”. Right after I ran out of my trusty Acai Berry, my lips have been dried and shrivelled (ew, gross) and turned to Nivea. Sadly, it was too moisturising for my taste (ironically enough). I dislike lip balms which were too hydrating for my lips that it felt like I was smothering it with oil….or butter. Yes, I think butter seems to fit the description perfectly. After much contemplation, Pink Grapefruit came along.

Initially, I wanted to try out the Vanilla or Honey but the whole row was filled with Pink Grapefruit. 

P R O S
1. Smells heavenly.
2. Price is on point. (SGD8)
3. Rejuvanates the lips instantly without feeling sticky.
Compact and practicle packaging, not forgetting adorable.

C O N S
1. The “flavour”/ “scent” that you’re used to/want may not be available all the time.


My final verdict? I’m obssesed! I don’t think I’ll be converting to any lip balm soon, although FRESH seems to have caught my eye (oh, the packaging! Swoons!) Afterall, we only need one lip balm, right?

Better Than Sex?

This image shows the before and after of using the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara

Of course I'm talking about the infamous mascara from Too Faced! When it comes to mascaras, I'm never one who would rush straight to the high-end aisle. Why spend so much when you can spend less and still achieve the same results? Boy was I wrong! I guess you'll never know until you try. The moment the wand wiggled its way through my lashes, I knew that it wasn't the last of high-end mascaras.

Make Up Forever Step 1 Equalizer - Base Mattifying Primer

This image shows a review of the Make Up Forever Step 1 Equalizer Base Mattifying Primer

When it comes to caking on my skin, MUFE has my heart. Eg. MUFE HD Foundation. With that aside, they have recently launched a new range of primers for all skin types. Mattifying, hydrating, colour correcting, you name it! I've heard and read nothing but good things about them. And it comes to no surprise that the mattifying primer has won a lot of hearts amongst the oily-skin gals community. Okay, I just made us sound gross lol. But you get the drift.
