(Products were given to me for review purposes. No money were involved.)
I "HAPPENED" to be at Tangs because my gf wants to get the brows done at Shu Uemura. Well it all started that way doesn't it? I was browsing through the products of course since there was only one BA at the counter and she was busy plucking my gf's brows. So i ventured out on a role to learn more about Shu Uemura's products. I love the extension range of blushes! They range from purples, light pinks, bluish tone pinks to an array of corals! None of the blushes are packed with too many fancy glitters. They were nice to see and to touch too! One of the blush caught my attention. DIRECT attention. It was the vivid orange. The colour is super vibrant and i can't help but to swatch it. It was a major love at first sight. Nothing like what i had in my drawers. It is almost like expensive pink but slightly darker. After the BA put it on me, I was sold instantly. It just made me look radiant and brightens my face after a day of hard work! Loves it! However, the price is not on a friendly side. If you can see below, you need to purchase the packaging in order to carry the blush around. Otherwise, if you have palletes like the Z palettes, this might be good to pop right in there without to pay the addition $14.00. I NEED the packaging because im always on the go. I need this blush with me wherever I go. And that additional $14 was actually a good investment because i brought it out alot of time and i love how mini and light it is.
On to the brows, I was torn in between MAC or shu uemura. And so i thought i wanted to give this highly raved pencil a try. It is funny how it seems like there is no colour coming out from it when you swatch, but when you stroke it on your brow hairs, it fills it up in a way looking like brow hairs! I like the pencil because it gave me the natural hairs i need on my brows. It does not have a wax on the pencil like many brow pencils do so it does not look too "uniformed". The result is deinitely natural and it accentuates your brow hairs and shape.this is how it looked despite my oily face. I was trying to show you how it looked like at the end of the day. Oh! to add on, it does not oxidise too making my brows look darker at the end of the day. And so we received samples because together, my gf and I accumulated more than $120 worth of products. So we split the freebies to try their products! In addition to that, thanks to Charlene for "over-purchasing" (haha) we both received the Shu Uemura membership card!
I am a happy girl indeed! Haha! Anyway thats all folks!
What did you purchase from Shu Uemura that you really love?!
I am a huge LIP FAN.
Humongous if i may exagerate. i love anything with colour. I am all about brightening my face up with lip colors. I feel that they complete my look. Eyeliner, mascara and a hot pink or red lipstick and im off the door! The Make Up For Ever Aqua Rouge Lip Color are one of the most best invented lip products ever. However there are the pros and cons to these. I will let you know why.
They are priced at $39.00 each at Sephora.On my lips, they looked like this. Lip swatch i say!My personal favourite has to be no.8. i have never had a perfect red for an olive skintone. It has just the right shade of red and orange undertone to it. I am in love and i always feel extra sexy wearing that! No.10 is the top left corner, No. 15 is the bottom left and No. 8 is the bottom right.
I like the doe-foot applicator since it really help me to line my lips well with the product. It really seems like i applied a lip pencil prior. It is super pigmented, creamy and just so divine. Application was super easy. Since applying red colour on your lips, you do need a great shape to make it look all the more appealing. After applying the lip colour on my lips, i have to let it dry for a good 20 seconds and apply the gloss over. The gloss will help to seal the lipstick and make it last throughout the day. As you can see below, it shows that you can apply the lip product with or without gloss. If there is no gloss over. you can feel that the product kinda am a tad sticky. When i dap my lips together i can feel that it sticks together. So with the gloss, it does not seem to be the problem.
Don't get me wrong.The lipstick lasted the whole day. Even after coffee, breakfast and lunch! However i do feel that at the end of the day of not touching up, the lipstick settles on my lines. Sometimes, dry lip lines, if you know what i mean. The outer area of my lips will still have the product, but at the inner side, the product will fade off. Which in comparison to many of my lipsticks, this product really can last long. I do not like how it looked on my lips and how it feels when i wiped my mouth after consuming food. It feels sticky, its uncomfortable and i have to touch it up or it will look super messy and ugly on my lips. So that bothers me abit. But i always touch up to avoid that messy outcome.
Nonetheless, i still adore these lipsticks because it is hassle free. You can bet that you lips will look amazing even after 6 hours of application. Its matte after applying the gloss and it always captures praises from others and a statement look for your everyday make up.
I would definitely recommend to you. This lip product is a genius invention. However i will not recommend to my dry and flaky lips sisters, like me.

So i was at Plaza Singapura the other day and i came across smoochiezz booth! If you hadn't knew yet, smoochiezz sells alot of items from brands like NYX, ELF, palettes and more. They started fairly small, but now being known and attained quite a number of customers, they jacked up the price. Sadly, its true. The best solution? Order these online through cherryculture.com. While I had fun swatching and more, I realized they did not sell all their products there. So the best bet is to head down to their showroom. Cut to the chase, heres the items i bought and the price too!
Blush in Silky Rose, $15.90
Lip Pencils in Dolly Pink and Soft Brown, $7.90 each
Glitter Eyeliner, $12.90
As you can see its not really cheap since they are selling for much less after converting in SGD when bought online from US. But anyhoo, this is a short post to show you all what i got recently :)
Any other NYX products that you love and recommend me to try? Let me know ok! :)
CONCEALER! Who doesn't love concealer?! they do wonders huh! I want to do a review on my highly raved and love concealer from Revlon. It is inexpensive and I had both my sisters buying and stocking this up while one of them were in Singapore. It is priced at $19.90. Get it while Watson has 20% off. Its worth while.
All over face concealer helps erase imperfections and camouflage dark undereye circles
Full yet undetectable coverage
Photochromatic pigments bend, reflect and diffuse light
SPF 20My Experience:
The concealer which has SPF does help however products with SPF do tend to give you the white cast when taking photos with flash. This concealer does not do that at all. Thats why im in love. The concealer has an amazing creamy texture and consistency to it which makes application alot easier. It does not seem to melt easily which happens to other concealer of mine. All i did was draw my under eye lightly, and blend it out with my ring finger. And vouila! Once i set it with powder, it just looked perfect!
I took this photo when i was in Yogyakarta last Apr/ May and heres what i meant by perfection of concealer. I always loved how concealer made my face alot fresher and more glowy.
If you want to see the breakdown of the before and after. Here you go! The coverage is from medium to full. It depends on how much product you apply and how many layers you put on. It blends really well and it does caked up nor settles on my lines at the end of the day. However the only con is that, it last a good 8-10 hours. Right after that, you could somewhat see your under eye appearing again. :( But other than that, i pretty much love this. its really easy to apply either you are at home or travelling. Loves the stick concept.
I definitely recommend this to ladies who just started make up or for people who loed a full coverage concealer.
Thanks for reading!
Since GSS is still going on, you might get the chance to get this 10-20% off. They are sold at $14.90 each which i feel is very affordable. They comes in about 6 colours. Correct me if i am wrong, but these are products you MUST NOT miss. I might giveaway the whole idea of reviewing these babies but i want to tell you how this works.
I got the shade Forever Pink which is a metallic pink with tiny silver glitters. It is packed together in a plastic jar which consist of 3.5g og product. This might last you a year to finish. Next one is, Flashback Silver which is a purplish undertone silver with silver glitters.These are the swatches. Pigmented and has a smooth "paste" to it.It is a cream base eyeshadow. However it is not too creamy when apply.
First time applying it, i was shocked at how smooth the consistency is on my eyelid. No tugging involved. The colour came right off. When touching the product, there is no dipping needed. Just rub on the cream shadows slightly and you get a massive amount of colour which can fill up your entire lids. I tried this without an eye primer, and to my surprise, there were no smudging or shifting or fading of colour. It is vibrant even after 14 hours of application. However, i do have slight creasing lines which i can easily rub my eyelids and its gone. So for me, i can definitely have the options of not putting eye primer before this. I love this product so much, now that i am writing this, i feel like buying them now! I used it on my sister the other day when she goes out for a date, and she agrees that it lasted for her too at the end of the day.
Overall Ratings:Highly Recommended.

We were at batam over the weekends for a short mini getaway also "comemorating" (haha) our 7th Year Anniversary of being together. We had so much fun being in a tour heading to places like the factory outlet, massages, seafood lunch, temple visits and more. Our hotel happened to be located at the heart of the city which we adore. And across the road, is Nagoya hill Shopping mall. Whats to do when you are back at the hotel after 5pm? SHOPPING of course!Well to be honest, there is nothing to shop there. Alot of copy bags and clothes which look rather skimpy. Otherwise, I am all into cosmetic baby! So i checked out the departmental store, Matahari and there were brands such as Maybelline, Revlon, Loreal, Pixy, Ultima and more. I happened to come across Sariayu because the packaging raised my attention. As i was swatching it, i grew fonder. They were sold for rp27,000 each which is about $3.70 each. INSANE!!! now i start to regret the fact that i just bought 4. Anyways, here are the products.
They come in various colours. Almost 20 different shades. Sariayu also have eyeshadows which does not impress me, they have skincare line too. These are products made locally in Indonesia. So i thought why not give it a try! The packaging is GORGEOUS! And the photos will shows you how great they are.The graphics are truly creative givivng a traditional Javanese cum Batik influence to it. The dates were written as to when they were produced. So thats a good thing. Also expiry dates are on them: 0615 (June, 2015). Brilliant!Heres the swatch. They are called the Moistpome lipsticks.Made up of promegranate extract & mineral. These lipsticks are so soft and moisturising. I don't need to put a lipbalm before applying the lipsticks. It also consist of UV Protection and Vitamin E as an antioxidant. The colours are amazing. The pigmentation is beyond expectation, being soinexpensive. And being a local brand, these babies deserves 5 stars. Kudos Indonesia!How can i not end this raving post without a lip swatch. Heres how it looks!
So, if you go to Batam, head to the departmental store or any cosmetic shop and find Sariayu cosmetics. You will love them!
I got it at Nagoya Hill Shopping Mall, Matahari Departmental Store, Cosmetic Section, Sariayu brand.
Thanks for reading loveS! i will see you soon! Have a good week ahead!
