REVIEW: COVO Magnifying Mascara (Jet Black)

In my personal journey in discovering the world of beauty, I have used, tested, swatch a decent number of products. Some I love, some left me undecided and others made me wonder why on earth was it created at the first place. But every now and then, I come across a product that left me bewildered. Yes, I'm talking about the underdogs. The ones that nearly no one mentioned, not even a whimper but actually deserve a massive shout-out from the rooftop.

I present to you my latest obsession, COVO Magnifying Mascara (Jet Black)*. The one mascara that I have been cheating on my previous number one (review here). I'm so naughty, I know.

REVIEW: Online Women Clothing Store (PICTURE HEAVY)

Recently I was contacted by a few online stores requesting me to write a feature post to promote their store, in return I would be properly compensated for it. The lure of being paid for a post is very tempting, so tempting it was that I actually agreed to one of these offers. Somehow, somewhere, after my brain fart has cleared, I suddenly had the urge to research on all these online stores that had reached out to me. Lo and behold, the reviews on them were scathing or in other words, scammers. I politely backed out on the one which I had agreed on but on the others, I actually replied stating that I do not do paid post but they could send me something from their store and I can do a whole post about the quality, delivery and of course, customer service. The answers I received were expected, short and brief...sorry, they don't work on such terms. Now I don't know about you guys but for me, if you are honest and am proud of your products then you wouldn't mind sending something for review. Or maybe it's really just me... But the one thing for certain, I will never be able to forgive myself if I promote a dodgy site and it led to one of my readers to be scammed.

So imagine my surprise when I was contacted by Jane from asking if I am interested to choose something from their store and they will deliver it to me for free. All they ask in return was a honest review about the site, delivery efficiency, clothing quality and for me to show how I style it. And my first thought was why the hell not? is the only online women's fashion apparel company that offers sizes 0-36W and customization. So just how detail is the customization that they offer? Well, let me show you. The site offers 2 types of customization, you can either choose a generic table (Picture A) or you can be more specific (Picture B).

The Story of Pinks

Let me start this post with a confession...I hate pink, I hate the colour with a passion and I will be the first to admit that Hello Kitty and me will never be best friends. However, I don't judge anyone who is obsessed with Hello Kitty as we all have our vice and mine was (and I truly mean was!The Bold and the Beautiful. Don't ask, I can't explain myself. I'll go to the corner and hang my head down in shame now...

I think I only ever own one soft pale pink skirt which I have thrown away and not even one pair of pink shoes. There is just something about that colour that annoys me right down to my core but when it comes to makeup, it is a whole new different world.

Pink lipsticks has been a huge favourite for my day time looks. Whether I am wearing a full face makeup or just lipstick alone, I find myself reaching out for pink more than any other colours during the day. And I realized that I usually rotate between the three lipsticks below...

Beauty Products I Cannot Be Without

It is no secret that I adore makeup these days but just not too long ago, actually barely a couple of years ago, makeup is almost a stranger to me. Let's just say I'm a late bloomer. While I do love getting all dolled up, every now and then I would strip everything back to basic. I can live without foundations, eyeshadows and even lipsticks (shocking, I know...) but these babies below are a MUST HAVEs for me.

REVIEW: Almay Smart Shade Skintone Matching Makeup SPF15

Every now and then I come across products that instantly pique my interest. And sad to say, there has been way too many time that my curiosity led to disappointments. I could do reviews on all my disappointing discoveries but that would make me come across as a fussy, whiny, way too hard to please bitch...and nobody wants that.

Today is different, today I am sharing a product which I bought on whim and I got really lucky with it. It works brilliantly on me and needless to say, I have been using it almost everyday since purchased. I present you, Almay Smart Shade Skintone Matching Makeup SPF15 and I have it in Light/Medium.

REVIEW: Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquer (Big Bang)

I haven't been posting the past two weeks and I do apologize for my disappearance but real life came knocking, hard. I wish someone warned me about what a bitch moving across the world would be. I knew it would be difficult but I wasn't aware what a bloody pain in the arse it would be. I am in love with our house but it currently looks like a bomb went off in it. Le sigh....but enough with woe is me and let us move on to my topic of the day.

Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquer has been one of the many things in my to-purchase list and it has been there since forever. Malaysia obviously discontinued Rimmel some time ago but back when Rimmel was still available, it only carries the below average products. Why? Who knows but it's no wonder Rimmel was soon discontinued. So when I arrived Canada and saw Apocalips Lip Lacquer on display, I naturally dance my way to the aisle and just had to purchase it. All the shades are absolutely stunning but I have learn from past experience to not be greedy and buy many at one go...just in case the product didn't work out for me. I am proud to say that I was a really good girl and only went home with the shade Big Bang.

September Favourites

Summer has come and passed
The innocent can never last
wake me up when September ends...

I do love Green Day, I know they are not everyone's cup of tea and political views aside, I think they are a brilliant band. But seriously though, where on earth did September went?! I can't believe we're already in October, it seems only yesterday we approached September. Ugh, tick tock tick tock...I'm getting older with each tick and bloody tock of the clock.

It is no secret that the recent huge change of climate has wrecked major havoc on my skin. I wasn't kidding when I said my skin literally looked like it was about to peel off from my face so it will be no surprise that September favourites lean more towards skincare.

I do apologize for the lighting in all the pictures below, it was very late but it's also the only time I can take photos because little tyke is finally asleep and I can work a little. 

September favourites, my skin rescue kit.
