✿ Summer Tangerine Makeup + Korean Makeup Haul ✿
Thursday, April 28, 2016.


Many of you have requested a makeup tutorial so here you go:


Jumping on the orangey apricot tint trend, this makeup look really makes the coral hues pop.

Also, this post would be a mini review on my recent Korean makeup and skincare haul 
from +Hermo Singapore went crazy buying all the Korean goodies that I've been dying to try out.
Let's not waste anymore time and dig right in:


Super excited about this 
MEME x HERMO
Holiday Season special 
of PONY x MEMEBOX's collection
I'm a personal fan of Pony and have been loving her products
so this was a must have for me. 

The packaging is seriously #goals
tooooo prettyyyy
almost couldn't bear to use it.

Shine Easy Glam Eyeshadow Palette 
#03 - Orange Bloom

As seen in the makeup video above,
this palette gives you a nice orange hued eyeshadow 
which I particularly enjoy applying recently. 

Blossom Lip Color - 
#03 - Orange Dahlia 
This lip color compliments my skin tone really well
and is not drying when applied to my lips. 



 This 2 products totally caught my eye
as I'm a sucker for packaging and gravitate towards different shades of pink. 

3CE - Daily Lady
This is a really feminine nude color
that I'll wear on days that I feel more 'girly' 

3CE Pink Rumour Blur Setting Loose Powder
This came as a surprise to me as several reviews I read online said that this setting powder
was 'so-so' only. However, upon several usages. This has officially become my favourite 
setting powder thus far. A little goes a long way in keeping your makeup in place the whole day. 
With this on, my makeup can look flawless for almost 8 hrs! 
It gives a velvety smooth finish, highly recommend. 
4.5/5 stars :)

Innisfree long wear cushion foundation in natural beige 
Was curious to try this out as cushion foundations are the in thing now. 
Coverage is a medium - high for this and it's really easy to use.
Just pat it on and you're ready to head out. 

Etude house - color my brows in natural brown 
On days when I feel like lightening my brows without having to bleach/dye them
this comes in really handy and does the job well for such a good price! 

Etude house - Soft Cream Puff 
Substitute for a beauty blender except for the rubbery smell during the first few uses. 

Etude house - Wonder Pore Freshner 
Best deal so far, value for money
for the price I paid, I got a huge bottle of product (500ml) 
For those people who prefer toners with alcohol (like myself) 
this is a great option. I feel that it tones and leaves my skin feeling clean after each usage. 


Skin Food Black Sugar Mask
 Heard many good reviews about this and had to try it out.
Loved the consistency and the exfoliating factor. 
Always so tempted to eat it every time I use it because it really is so sugary 
(but no please don't eat it)


My favourite find in this haul!!!
Borghese Fango active mud mask.
A jar of goodness.

This I have to rave about 
as this mask really sucks out all the gunk in your pores
You would be able to see all the oils being cleansed from your pores after the mask dries.
I use it 1-2 times a week. 
5/5 stars!!! 

Last but not least
April Skin Magic Stone
100% natural cleansing soap 
I love how it cleanses my skin but still keeps it balanced
and it's really affordable, what a steal! 
Totally digging the bar stone like form of the soap and I usually use this as my night cleanser.

Refreshing my hair with Salondechoix
Tuesday, March 29, 2016.


So it's been 3 months since I fixed my hair
and looking at this picture now, it was really a mess! 
How I wish I had eyes at the back of my head 
so I could see how bad my hair situation is...
Okay but in all seriousness, I felt that my hair was really dry and frizzy,
the colour was all faded and my roots were growing out like wild grass. 

I requested for Chester to do some treatment for my hair to revive it
and he suggested to even out my hair colour too. 
He added Olaplex into the colouring mixture to strengthen and repair my hair bonds,
during the colouring process.


After the colouring, he proceeded to do a smoothening treatment for my hair. 
I really like this treatment has it made my hair so smooth,
my hair tie kept falling off every time I tried to tie my hair. 
My hair really felt silky. 

Always so amazed by the before and after shots of my hair. 
I liked how he still kept a bit of purple at the ends
but toned the colour out evenly. 

Selfie timeeee with purple streaks peeping through :)

9 Reasons You Should Visit The Nail Artistry
Tuesday, March 22, 2016.




THE NAIL ARTISTRY

Conveniently located in the heart of Serangoon Gardens, 
this new and upcoming nail salon is your next place to go to get your nails done! 
Let me tell you why:


1) Owned and ran by Girl Boss Steffi (@steffiyip) 
this cutie is definitely one to look out for when you visit the Nail Artistry ;) 

But too bad guys, she already has a ring on her finger 
with her fiancé who co-runs 'The After Taste' 
right beside her Nail Parlour 
(how sweet is that!)

2) Eat while doing your nails

The hunger pangs may strike anytime you're getting your nails done,
but at the nail artistry you can simply order a drink or a light bite
from the after taste cafe to keep yourself happy and full. 


And if you're the kind of girl who drags your boyfriend along
for your mani-pedis, fret not! Your boyfriend can simply chill at 
the after taste while waiting for you to get pretty nails.
No more awkward 'boyfriend in the corner of a nail salon' situation ;D

They have cakes, brunch and a huge variety of drinks. 
Bring your friends along to have a chit chat session over mani and tea.
Already sounds like a great idea to me.  

3) FREE WIFI 

Who always uses their phone during a manicure even though your fingers are occupied?
ME. 
Having wifi in a public area is like manna sent from heaven,
use your phone as much as you like throughout your session without 
worrying about exploding data bills. 

4) Shiok Pedicures 

I'm a totally sucker for great foot scrubs and removing all that 
nasty dead skin on my feet. It always feels so great after a good pedicure. 
My feet would feel brand new as though I could walk another thousand miles. 
Please girls (and guys) if you haven't tried a pedicure before - PLEASE GO.
Your feet will thank you later. 


5) FREE MOVIES

Getting restless and bored while getting your nails done? 
Keep your eyes peeled for the latest movies screening at their shop. 

Watch shows like Despicable me, Maleficent, The Lego Movie etc

6) Good and Meticulous service 

With experienced and professional manicurist attending to your every nail need,
they will never let you leave the shop with a bad nail day. 




7) Drop dead gorgeous nail art

Feeling fancy? Get your nails a 'new outfit' 
simply by customising your own nail art just the way you like it. 


The possibilities are endless and you can check out their instagram
for more elaborate designs. 

Even your toes can get some love too. 

My gelish toe nail art can easily last up to 2 months! 

8) Quote my name to get 10% off! 

Everyone loves discounts,
don't tell me you don't hor. 

9) Great location 

Serangoon gardens practically has EVERYTHING.
Not even kidding
Supermarket, Food, Dessert, Drinks, KTV, Massage, Banking, Hawker Centres
and the list just goes on.
Your one destination to get all your errands done in one day.

Damage Repair with Moist Diane
Sunday, March 13, 2016.



Moist Diane, helps turn your locks shiny, silky and smooth with rare plant oils sourced from all over the world. They deep-cleanse your scalp and hair gently and thoroughly, yet do not strip them of natural oils, which act as a necessary protective layer against environmental aggressors.

My new 'go-to' hair care set for deep repair and nourishment for my damaged hair.
As I have bleached my hair several times, I needed something intense to fix all the chemical damage done.
Therefore, I decided tried out their Extra Damage Repair products for 2 weeks :)
So read on to find out more! 
This range is especially great for colour-treated, dry, frizzy or coarse hair. 

Moist Diane shampoos are infused with age-old wonder ingredient, Moroccan Argan Oil. Known as ‘liquid gold’, is is packed rich in Vitamin E, antioxidants and fatty acids to protect and hydrate the scalp.
Different from other shampoos, Moist Diane’s silicone-free formulations prevent hair from clogging to help you achieve healthy voluminous hair!

I feel that my hair really soaks up their repair treatment and it leaves it feeling smooth and healthy.
This series also smells really pleasant and fresh, leaving my hair smelling great!
A well-balanced blend of oils is the key to an effective result for healthy hair. Packed with Moroccan Argan oil and 9 other types of handpicked botanical oils, Moist Diane Extra Damage Repair promises to not only deliver high cleansing ability, but also effectively repair and nourish dry, damaged and brittle hair. 
Each ingredient reaches deep into each hair strand by delivering essential nutrients for proper repair. By improving the hair structure inside out, what you get out of the shower room is healthier, shiny, softer hair with vitality.

Using a hair mask frequently helps protect and repair damaged hair. 
I love how rich and pampering this hair mask feels.
Simply apply it on damp hair, leave it on for 3-5 mins and rinse it off! 
Super easy and your hair will feel like silk after each session. 

I'm not used to using hair oils as I feel that they always leave my hair feeling too greasy. 
However, I couldn't resist trying Moist Diane's Smooth Hair Oil as it really looked like liquid gold!
And I'm definitely glad I did, it really gives an extra boost and shine to my dull hair.
This lightweight hair oil is filled with high concentration of Moroccan Argan Oil to deeply moisturise and repair hair to reduce breakage and splitting, and gives brilliant shine without making hair feel sticky or greasy. Work two drops through either damp or dry hair. Another A-lister ingredient in Moist Diane is Baobab Oil. Rich in vitamins A, D, E and F, and omega 3, 6, and 9, it is especially beneficial for hair and scalp.


Before:
My hair feels crispy, frizzy, tangled and unmanageable... 

After: 
Smooth and shiny, I can easily run my fingers through my hair 
and my locks feel so much stronger and treated.
Hair gives off a healthy beautiful glow with lesser split ends. 


Here is how Moist Diane shampoos infused with Moroccan Argan Oil can benefit your hair:
  1. Deeply nourishes hair and tames frizzes
  2. Prevents unnatural hair loss and stimulate hair growth
  3. Boosts a healthy hair glow
  4. Strengthens hair and repairs split ends 
  5. Improves hair elasticity

I would recommend you to try out this series if you have damaged hair like me,
but fret not, Moist Diane has other products for different hair types:
Moist and Shine
Volume and Scalp
Extra Shine

You can conveniently purchase these lovelies from any Watsons, major Fairprice outlets, departmental stores and Meidiya.
