L'oreal Paris Color Riche Moisture Matte Lipstick SWATCHES!

Read Article →




 
L'Oreal's website describes the Color Riche Moisture Matte Lipstick as a lipstick that delivers intense moisture while providing a velvet matte finish. It has a unique formula containing jojoba oil for unrivaled moisture and comfort along with matte gel technology to create an intense matte look.

I am blown away by the Color Riche lipstick range. The stores in Singapore carries 10 Colour Riche Moisture Matte lipsticks shades and around 15 Color Riche Lip Color shades. And the the pigmentation is amazing. True to its description, the formula dries to a velvet matte finish. The texture is very creamy and the darker shades leave a stain behind.

The design again is very sturdy and has a color code panel on the front for easy identification. They retail for S$21.90 each and are available at Watsons, Guardian, Sasa & major supermarkets and hypermarkets.

P501 Sakura Petal

Mini Shoe Haul | Mel by Melissa, ASOS, Payless

Read Article →



Hey guys! So following yesterday's post where I showed you guys some stuff I ordered online, I also promised that I will post a little haul today showing some of shoes I got recently. I have been really ill for the past week so do pardon the shorts posts!






#1
I always get my flats from Payless. They have great designs in so many different sizes and I can take my time to try them on without  I personally love the flexi shoes they have from the brand. They are currently having a promotion of $15 off S$45 bill if you make payment via Visa Debit/Credit card. I thought that was an awesome deal so I got these pair of yellow weave flexi flats and some casual slippers. These yellow flats are S$32.90 and I got it in a size 8. 


#2






These are the Mel by Melissa Toffee Apple Wedges in Glossy Black. The Toffee Apple wedges are made by recyclable materials. They are very comfortable considering it has a 3 inch heel. I do have an issue with my pair of shoes though, my right pair seems to be almost a size larger than my left pair. I have checked the sizes and both pairs are the same shoe size but the left shoe felt a lot more tighter. They make the legs so slim looking and will look great with anything.

#3


The ASOS Suppose Heel is by far, the most flattering pair of sandal mid length heels I have ever tried on. I am a true UK6(EU39) and got it in a UK6. It fits true to size, so perfect I thought maybe these pair of shoes were made just for my feet. The thick, chunky heel makes it a dream to walk in, I think I could even run in these. The hard plastic sole isn't the most comfortable but for the price I really couldn't expect more.

Just Ordered | ASOS Suppose Heels + Mel by Melissa Toffee Apple Wedge

Read Article →




*Most of the items have already arrive! I will make another post tomorrow and give you guys a little sneak peek! 

I wanted to update you guys some of the products I ordered online recently. From ASOS, I ordered a amazing pair of patent chunky kitten heels. I think they are great for work and aren't they adorable? I even had to keep refreshing because they keep getting out of stock in my size. But I managed to cart it in my size (uk 6) in the end which fits me perfectly by the way.

And I'm not sure if ASOS changed their check-out policy? Previously there weren't a minimun check-out amount. I was able to get free worldwide delivery on my Rose Foil Jumper which was GBP8 which adds up to around S$16. But when I checked out this time round, I had to hit GBP20 before I was entitled to free worldwide delivery. Maybe because delivery charges are higher for shoes. So I bought the metal bangle bracelet (GBP4.80) which I thought was pretty cute anyways.

From Singsale, I purchased a pair of Mel by Melissa Toffee Apple Wedges in glossy black. They looked so cute in pictures and they were on sale for only S$29. I know some departmental stores in Singapore sells Mel by Melissa and they range at least over a hundred bucks. The sizes are a little bit sketchy over at Singsale plus this is my first time buying shoes from that website. It states that it is AU7 which converts to an EU38 and I am usually around a 39 so it will be slightly tighter.

Clio Gelpresso Glow Tint SWATCHES!

Read Article →




























Hey guys! So nowadays the key term we use in all aspects of life is convenience. Fast food, 2-in-1 shampoo, credit cards has become necessities essential to us. This also applies to makeup; tint for cheeks and lips, tinted moisturizer, gel liner in pencil form, etc are wildly gaining popularity. The 'IT' thing now is none other than 3-in-1 lip products - products that combines a traditional lipstick, stain and lip gloss. Mega impact in minimum time. And the Clio Gelpresso Glow Tint has accomplished that. I feel this is a product has the perfect balance of shine and pigmentation.

No.1 Flat Pink
No.2 Pompous Purple (Not available in Singapore)
No.3 Enamel Pink
No.4 Wedge Orange
No.5 Killheel Red

I love Clio products, I haven't really had the chance to try many of them but they are such a popular brand and are always coming up with innovative unique products like the Virgin Kiss Lipnicure. I do have swatches for a couple of Clio lip products, I will leave the links below.

The Clio Gelpresso Glow Tint retail for S$16.90 each and are available at selected Watsons.

Shade no. 3 looks amazing on fair skin, so I am really tempted to try that. Let me know which shade is your favourite! *EDIT: Review on 003 Enamel Pink is UP! Click here to check it out!

Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Polish SWATCHES!

Read Article →







The Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Polish has reached our sunny shores earlier last year. Maybelline website states that the Lip Polishes are infused with liquid balm to give lips a silky, cushiony feel. Together with Maybelline's special leaf-shaped brush applicator made from Angora fur gives the perfect finish. It promises the intense color of a lipstick, shine of a gloss and comfort of a balm - aka a 3-in-1 elixer.

I haven't tried them on my lips yet, but by swatching them at the back of my hand, they are without a doubt amazingly pigmented, especially the darker shades. The lighter shades may go slightly sheerer. 

There are only 10 shades available in singapore. I am not sure how the shades that will go on sale for different regions are chosen, I have seen swatches of Glam 3 & Glam 7 and they are GORGEOUS. Unfortunately, if you want to own those shades, you would have to buy them online.

The Lip Polishes retail for S$19.90 each and are available at Watsons, Guardian, Sasa & major supermarkets and hypermarkets.

Herworldplus states that limited edition colours Pop 1, Pop 4, Glam 3 and Glam 7 will be available from January 2014.

My favourites from this line are definitely Pop 5 and Pop 6. I have something for bright pink lipglosses and who can deny such a classic statement red?! I believe the model was wearing Pop 6 for the campaign shot below. Amazing colour don't 'cha think?



Love,
Hannah

Review | NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss in LG164 Nude Pink

Read Article →







Hey guys! I haven't uploaded in a couple of days but I do have a good reason for it - I got a new laptop! Yippee! I bought a Macbook Air 13", and my previous laptop was Acer so I needed some time to get used to the new operating system. Anywhozzles, I bought the NYX Mega Shine Lipgloss in Nude Pink ages ago but I have never reviewed it before.  So here you guys go!

Pros:
I love the colour and pigmentation, it is lighter than my original bare lip but the lipgloss managed to cover it up well. It is very streaky though, if you pressed your lips too tightly, it smudges a bit.

I highly recommend this shade if you love nudes, this color is a perfect creamy nude pink just as the name suggests. I bought my NYX Mega Shine lipglosses at Smoochiezz for around S$8. Sephora in Singapore is also carrying NYX cosmetics and I believe the Mega Shine lipglosses are S$10 each so they are very affordable.

Cons: 
The formula doesn't get absorbed into the skin, it kinda feels like grease, as if I've eaten a fried chicken wing and there is a film of oil on my lips. I have worn Nude Pink out a couple of times and whenever I drink, I have to wipe it off and reapply otherwise it will look extremely patchy.

 The Mega Shine lipglosses have a cherry medicinal smell and taste to it which I really dislike.

Verdict: 
I personally don't really care for the Mega Shine lipglosses. I haven't tried other shades, but I am not a fan of the formula. They are very affordable so if you want to try a bunch of shades without burning a hole in your pocket, this is a good option. However the quality isn't all that great, you really get what you pay for.



Love,
Hannah

7 Must Buys at Daiso Singapore!

Read Article →


Hey guys! If you haven't been to Asia, you may not know what Daiso is. Daiso is a 100 yen large franchise store, meaning that all products in the shop are 100 yen. In Singapore, all items are S$2 and there are currently 11 outlets islandwide. I would consider Daiso a one-stop shop for cheap gadgets, tools, kitchen utilities. They have literally everything you can think of and are all at only $2!

#1

I have been asked multiple times by strangers in the store asking what this is for. This is probably more widely known as a lint remover. I don't use this on my clothes but I find this so useful for picking up hairs on carpets/beds. This is definitely one life hack weapon for people with long hair. The handy tool picks up dusts, dirt and hair within a snap, tear off the sheet and easily dispose it into the trash bin without any hassle.


#2

Daiso is divided into different sections in a store. I always look through the makeup aisle because sometimes, there are treasures that goes unnoticed. Eyelashes for S$2?! Heck yeah! There are a plethora of different eyelash designs, I have tried many of them over the years and I feel that these ones I got are one of the more natural looking ones.


 #3

If you are looking for bubble wraps, zip-lock bags, clear plastic pocket bags, you can always find them at Daiso. Probably not the cheapest bought in bulk but if you are just starting out or you are like me who needs small quantities for storage/giveaways, there are tons of different sizes to choose from. 


#4

I LOVE these stackable lotion containers that Daiso have currently. You can buy multiples of it and stack them all together! I have a lot of samples of bb creams, moisturizers, even loose eyeshadows and having them all in a single stack is so much more convenient than looking through samples when in rush for time. I particularly favour the clear containers because I can see the contents from outside.


#5
These slinky rubber bands are definitely a replacement for the traditional fabric hair ties that we use. They comes in a pack of 6 colourful bands or 6 black bands. I have 2 packs of these and they are a must have in my makeup bag. They don't leave a indent in the hair and holds up to wear and tear very well.


#6

Every girl needs one of these five compartment containers. I use them to store my bobby pins, hair ties, clips that would 'mysteriously vanish' whenever I need them. Having it in a single place is so much more helpful!


#7









I had no idea these even existed! These are plastic stud earrings and can be found in the cosmetics section of Daiso. I am always wearing plastic studs and no matter how many times you buy them, when you need it, they cannot be found anywhere. It is as if a black hole swallowed them all, a black hole that includes erasers, bobby pins and our tv remote controls if you know what I mean. With this contraption, whenever I need one, I can just pull them off the stem and use them immediately. 


This rounds up my top 7 buys from Daiso. Do you have any must buys from Daiso? Let us know in the comments below!


Love,
Hannah
