*Sponsored* Circle Lens | EOS V-Check 2 Tone Brown Review

I think everyone has that one (or a few) things that they can never have too many of. Be it shoes, t-shirts, makeup, handbags, mugs, candles, soft toys… The list can go on and on. One of the things that I can never have too many of are brown circle lenses.

In my circle-lens-wearing time, I have tried many different styles and sizes of circles lenses. Anything from the super-natural-barely-noticeable to the doll-like-opaque-color-changing ones. From that, I have came to know one thing: brown and grey lenses are ones that suit me best. 

So, when loveshoppingholics contacted me and asked if I would like to try some circle lenses from them, I obviously said yes. 

And the lenses that I got are the:


Kinda boring. I know. But I know lenses like these are what I will get a lot of wear out of. 

P/s. I have to commend loveshoppingholics for their very fast shipping. The package got to me a mere few days after they contacted me *thumbs up*

Clinique Chubby Stick Intense Review | 01 Curviest Caramel & 04 Heftiest Hibiscus

Jumbo crayon/ pencil type lip products seem to be everywhere at the moment. I recently picked up a few new ones to try "for review purposes" and the first ones in the lineup are the Clinique Chubby Stick Intense. 

I reviewed the regular Clinique Chubby Sticks a while ago (Clinique Chubby Stick Review) and I quite like those. However, I am LOVING the Clinique Chubby Stick Intense.

The Clinique Chubby Stick Intense is available in 8 colors:
Surprise surprise. After swatching all 10 colors at the Clinique counter and after a very very long deliberation, I bought the nude-ish color (01 Curviest Caramel) and the orangey color (04 Heftiest Hibiscus).

Majolica Majorca | 10th Anniversary Limited Edition Little Humming Book 1 Review

Majolica Majorca: A brand that I love for their amazing mascaras that can hold a curl on my stick-straight-curl-defying lashes as well being very smudge resistant on my oily mono lids. I had no idea that this brand has been in existence for 10 years until I stumbled upon the Little Humming Book 1 palette when I was wandering idly in a pharmacy/ drugstore. 

The Little Humming Book 1 is the first of several limited edition palettes that were released in commemoration of the 10th anniversary of the brand. Visit the official Majolica Majorca website if you want to find out more~

Etude House Nymph Aura Volumer Baby Glow Balm Review | #01 Pink Beige & #02 Natural Beige

Don't we all want baby skin? I know I do. 

As a result, I was immediately drawn to the Etude House Nymph Aura Volumer Baby Glow Balm in the store when I walked past it. Seriously, "aura", "baby" and "glow"? Etude House sure knew which keywords to include in a product name to make it attractive. I wasn't sure if I want a "glowy" product since I have very oily skin but the sales assistant assured me that it wouldn't make my skin look too shiny or oily, just very natural and youthful looking with a healthy glow. 

The next thing I know, I was photographing the Nymph Aura Volumer Baby Glow Balm in my room. 

This product is available in 3 colour selection: #1 Pink Beige, #2 Natural Beige and #3 Sand Beige. 

I first purchased #1 Pink Beige as the sales assistant recommended it but it turned out to be too light for me. So I went back and purchased #2 Natural Beige as well.

Canmake Cream Cheek Review | Clear Series CL01, CL02, CL03 & CL04

Hi everyone. Please take a moment to have a look at these little pots of gorgeousness. 

These Canmake Cream Cheek Cream Blushers are very well known in the Asian beauty-sphere for it's great pigmentation, texture as well as wallet friendly price tag (In Japan. If you are purchasing it in most other places, chances are you will be ripped off, like I was). 

I was recently on a hunt for these blushers because I wanted to review more Asian beauty products in addition to the seasonal luxury brands makeup releases that I tend to do most of. So I went out for a beauty product shopping spree & got a few things that I thought might be of interest to you guys. Needless to say I bought a ton of blushers. 

From what I know, 13 colours were released in the original (cream) formula but quite a few got discontinued. The Canmake Cream Cheek in the Clear formula is a relatively new release to the line with 4 colours in the series: 

  • CL01 Clear Red Heart
  • CL02 Clear Love Song
  • CL03 Clear Sunset (not listed on official site, I believe this one is limited edition) 
  • CL04 Clear Pink Joy

Circle Lens | Geo Mari Gold Gray Review

I love circle lenses. To me, circle lenses and makeup go hand in hand and I don't think I can ever live (happily [yes, putting in lenses and putting on makeup makes me happy]) without either of these in my life. 

I think I started wearing circle lenses about the same time that I started wearing makeup, which is when I was around 17 years old if I remember correctly. I started off by wearing daily disposable ones but that became way too expensive in the long run. I then started exploring other options and I have since tried many 6-month or yearly lenses. 

I prefer circle lenses that are towards the natural end of the spectrum. I like ones that look natural but still give subtle enlargement and definition. Also, I am not too fond of lenses that make me look like this--> O.O 

I recently tried out the Geo Mari Gold Gray (or grey, my Mac laptop doesn't like it when I type grey even though I already specify that I use Australian spelling). IT IS PERFECT!!

Chanel L'ete Papillon de Chanel Collection for Summer 2013 | Inimitable Waterproof Mascara (47), Stylo Eyeshadow (47 & 57), Rouge Coco Shine (467) & Le Vernis Nail Colour (647, 657 & 667) Review

With fall/autumn items slowly making its way into stores, I can't help but to admit that summer (for those in the Northern Hemisphere) is coming to an end. Although I live in a tropical country which means it's summer all year round, I too am excited for the arrival of summer because it means that the clothes and makeup are designed to be suited for the hotter climates. A very superficial reason I know but I am sure if you are reading a beauty blog, you will most likely understand. 

Although I tend to prefer summer makeup releases, I was not particularly drawn to many summer collections released this year. I have blogged about pieces from the Dior Bird of Paradise Collection (LINK) and 2 items from YSL summer 2013 Collection (LINK). After this post, I will review the Shu Uemura Eyeconic Collection for Summer 2013 and that will be the end of my Summer 2013 makeup collections coverage. 

Chit chat done. Let's take a look at Chanel L'ete Papillon de Chanel Collection for Summer 2013.

YSL Summer 2013 Collection | Marrakesh Sunset Palette & Terre Saharienne Bronzing Powder in 30 Terre Halee Review

Hi everyone. Have you ever made an impulse purchase just because something got sold out very quickly/ got so hyped up? I did exactly that when I saw the YSL Marrakesh Sunset Palette a while back when I went to Singapore for a meeting. I knew that this palette was sold out on the US website so when the SA brought the palette out saying it JUST came in, I had to get it right?

I also picked up the Terre Saharienne Bronzing Power in 30 Terre Halee because the SA recommended this particular shade for contouring. You should note that my rationality was partially knocked out of me due to makeup-induced excitement since I had so much fun swatching all the Glossy Stains and gorgeous YSL lipsticks.

So the gist of all this faff is, I bought the Marrakesh Sunset Palette & the Terre Saharienne Bronzing Powder in 30 Terre Halee, which I will review for you now.
Other products in the YSL Summer 2013 collection includes (source):
  • 3 La Laque Couture Nail Lacquers in 14 Violine Surrealiste, 36 Vert Dorient & 37 Taupe Mauresque
  • 2 Rouge Pur Couture Vernis A levres Glossy Stain in 14 Fuchsia Dore & 31 Corail Alla Prima
  • 2 Rouge Pur Couture Golden Lustre Lipsticks in 114 Rose de Saba & 115 Brun Sultan
  • Dessin du Regard Crayon Yeux Waterproof Eyeliner in 10 Violet Massa
  • Terre Saharienne Powder Matte Bronzer in 10 Terre Ambree & 20 Terre Ocree
  • 2 Pure Chromatics Wet & Dry Shadow in #13 & #20
According to, the Marrakesh Sunset Palette is the only limited edition item in this collection. Other products released in this collection will be added to the permanent range in their respective category (source)

Dior Bird of Paradise Collection for Summer 2013 Review

Hi everyone. If you could see me right now, you will probably think that a zombie has taken over my blog to write you this post. Reason being, I have been sick for over a week and the haze is NOT helping. Although I might not be able to breathe through my nose, take a deep breath or stop coughing (plus I sound like a man), I cannot neglect the blog any longer. 

Now, to help you get the zombie image out of your head, let's talk about something a lot more delightful: Dior Bird of Paradise Collection for Summer 2013. 

To be honest, I haven't been overly excited about the Summer 2013 releases and the Dior Bird of Paradise Collection for Summer 2013 was the first one that caught my attention since I love peacocky colours (my hair is in fact ombre in a peacock inspired color at the moment!). 
I will be reviewing the Diorskin Nude Tan Paradise Duo Blush & Bronzing Powder in 001 Pink Glow, the 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette in 374 Blue Lagoon, Dior Addict lipsticks in 431 On the Beach & 751 Exotique, the Dior Jelly Lip Pen in 636 Carioca & 656 Gaia as well as the Bird of Paradise Summer Nail Lacquer Duo in 001 Samba & 002 Bahia.

Ecotools Bamboo Bronzer Brush & Recycled Retractable Kabuki Review

Hi everyone. I am currently on a brush kick and I have spent many hours exploring beauty blog-land in order for me to scout for some new candidates to add to my brushes collection.

Some newbies have since been added to my arsenal, of which includes the Ecotools Bamboo Bronzer Brush and Recycled Retractable Kabuki.

Shu Uemura OB Collection for Spring 2013 Review

Hi everyone. Liz "blog sloth" Chewy signing in.

Today, I am going to review the Shu Uemura OB Collection for Spring 2013. 
"Inspired by Japanese artist ob and the young creators of her generation comes a limited-edition collection that celebrates the rise of a new era in art. in-between reality and a dream beckons you into ob’s creative universe, a world that appears normal at first sight but is filled with fantasy and delight; a world that showcases the emerging vision of a generation of creators who came of age in a radical new digital world. Discover this magical landscape and create a new you – someone you’ve never imagined yourself to be – with a line-up of gorgeous shu uemura products intricately wrapped in the beauty of spring and the sensitivity of a new generation."

Shu Uemura's collaboration collections always hit my weak spot,  mainly because of the unique-once-off-gorgeous-and-super-cute-limited-edition packaging. Did I mention the work-of-the-art false eyelashes??

Chanel Spring 2013 Printemps Precieux Makeup Collection Review

Hi everyone. It's been a while since I last posted something hasn't it?

The truth is, the past month has been a whirlwind of madness on a personal level as well as on a larger scale (regarding Malaysia's 13th general election). Lots of unresolved stress and negativities lingered in my mind and as a result, it just didn't feel quite right for me to be sitting around and talking about makeup. 

However, the world keep spinning, life goes on and I have a backlog of spring collections to review. First up, Chanel Spring 2013 Printemps Precieux Collection.

There are only several limited edition items in this collection so most of the items featured in this review should still be available for purchase.

Les Merveilleuses by Ladurée Spring Collection 2013 | Mini Face Color Trio Review

Desserts (or macarons to be more precise) and makeup are some of the things that I truly love. As a result, I have always had a very strong affection towards Les Merveilleuses by Ladurée makeup. 

I have only tried their limited edition Cream Cheek Base released in Autumn 2012 (my review HERE) but I have always longed for more.

When I saw the promo images and product lineup for their Spring 2013 collection, I went into makeup ninja mode and hunted the internet obsessively for a way to get my hands on some of the products. (For those of you who don't know, the Les Merveilleuses by Ladurée makeup line is only available in Japan).

After dealing with parcel forwarding services, online payment verification, exorbitantly marked up prices and additional shipping costs, I got my hands on these:

250~300ish Followers Giveaway

Hi everyone. It's GIVEAWAY TIME~~~~ I have reached 250 followers on GFC some months ago and a giveaway has always been on the agenda. However, I have always been sidetracked and hence the giveaway is only happening now -.- 

One good thing that accompanies a delayed giveaway is that I had so much more time to gather the prizes! I hope the goodies that I have accumulated over this time will make up for the lateness.

Before I get into the details of this giveaway, I have some admin announcements:
If you have noticed/if you are following me on either facebook or twitter, then you will know that my blog now has a custom URL which is [] 

The new URL also means that I need to claim it again on Bloglovin'. At the moment, you will still get updates from my blog if you are following me on Bloglovin' via []. However, since I might create a website to house my blog in the future, I do recommend you to follow me on Bloglovin' via []; especially with the uncertain future of GFC.
Follow on Bloglovin

Also, I have changed the layout of my blog slightly because I think it will make browsing easier for my readers. Instead of loading one full post, it now loads summaries of 6 blog posts on each page. Let me know what you guys think~

Before this post becomes an essay, here's the prizes for this giveaway.
You stand a chance to win a Shu Uemura UV Under Base Mousse in Beige, a Shu Uemura Colorless Face Powder Matte, 3 Clio Gelspresso Waterproof Pencil Gel Liners, a Shu Uemura eyelash curler, a pair of Karl for Shu Premium Eyelashes, a pack of Heavy Rotation Styling Eyelash in 03 Natural Style, a limited edition K-Palette 1 Day Tattoo liquid eyeliner, a Clinique Chubby Stick Intense in 04 Heftiest Hibiscus & a set containing travel size L'Occitane Amande (Almond) Shower Oil, Milk Concentrate Lotion & mini Fleurs de Cerisier (Cherry Blossom) Hand Cream.

Products I've Used Up | April 2013

Hi everyone. This blog post will be the first in a "Products I've Used Up" series that I am starting on the blog. Since I have quite a hefty collection of beauty products, I always have a huge sense of accomplishment whenever I use something up. 

I thought it will be an interesting read if I showcase some products that I have used up along with some mini reviews as well as mentioning whether or not I will repurchase them. 

Some of the products have a tiny bit left when I took the photos but all of them are gone by the time I am typing this post. The reason for that is that I want to show you the texture or look of the product. Also, it's very very difficult for me to keep a product that is completely empty because I always feel a strong urge to throw something out once I've used them up (It's not OCD is it??). 

Without further ado, let's have a look at the products that I have used up in the past month or so.

From left: Shu Uemura Skin Purifier Porefinist Gentle Foaming Cleansing Water, Michael Todd Organic Lemon AHA+ DMAE Toner, Michael Todd Moisture Lite Non-oily Hydrating Lotion, Michael Todd Intensive Organic Cream Eye Treatment & Maybelline Baby Lips in Smoothing Cherry.

MAC Archie's Girls Collection Review

MAC Archie's Girls. This collection has been out for so long in certain parts of the world that I think nearly everyone in Beauty-blogland would have read if not reviewed items from this collection.

However, since this collection was JUST released on my shores not too long ago, I decided to review it anyways because I am VERY impressed with most of the items I got.

I have not kept up with MAC collections for a long time because the sheer amount of collections that MAC keeps pumping out makes it absolutely impossible (and somewhat uninteresting). I think it was around this time last year that I reviewed a MAC collection (It was a review on the In Extra Dimension & Tres Cheek Collection- LINK). 

The MAC Archie's Girls Collection is a colossal one with lipsticks, lipglasses, eyeliners, pigments, eyeshadow palette, mascara, blush, face powder and nail lacquers inspired by the two main female characters in Archie's Comic- Betty and Veronica. There's also accessories in the form of brush kit, coin purse, mirror, makeup bag and a tote.

Skinfood | Black Egg Pore Primer, Black Egg Pore Foundation & Black Egg Pore Finish Powder Review

Hi everyone! What is your number 1 skin concern? For me, it's definitely my chronically oily skin and my visible-even-on-low-res-camera enlarged pores. I have tried various skin care products that CLAIM to help refine and minimise pores but to be honest, I think those products are more of a psychological thing because I have not found any that actually works. 

As a result of my skin type/condition, I naturally gravitate towards pore covering/ mattifying base makeup and avoid anything that has the word luminous or glow in its name like the plague. 

One day, when I was browsing in my local Skinfood store, I stumbled across these:
From left: Skinfood Black Egg Pore Foundation in #1 Light Beige, Black Egg Pore Primer & Black Egg Pore Finish Powder.

A range of products that is targeted to conceal enlarged pores and give you boiled egg like smooth skin (plus with super cute food-like packaging)? These went straight into my shopping basket.

Dior Cherie Bow Collection for Spring 2013 Review | Cherie Bow Palette in Powder Pink, 5 Couleurs Cherie Bow in Ballerina Pink, Diorblush Cherie Bow in Pink Happiness & Tender Coral, Dior Addict Lipstick in Charmante, Candide & Espiegle, Dior Vernis in Tutu, Gris Trianon & Rosy Bow

Pink has always been and always will be one of my favourite colours on earth. Hence you can probably guess that I was VERY VERY excited when I spotted the (very pink) Dior Cherie Bow Collection for Spring 2013. 

Oh, and I LOVE bows too. You can stick a bow onto almost anything and I will think that it's cute.

The above reason will pretty much explain why this happened.

I went a little crazy and bought the Cherie Bow palette in 001 Powder Pink, the 5 Couleurs Cherie Bow in 724 Ballerina Pink, the Diorblush Cherie Bow in 659 Tender Coral & 729 Pink Happiness, the Dior Addict Lipsticks in 437 Charmante, 457 Candide, 687 Espiegle and the Dior Vernis in 155 Tutu, 306 Gris Trianon & 355 Rosy Bow.

Holika Holika Aqua Petit Jelly BB Review

Hi everyone. Do you like jelly? It's one of my favourite snacks as a kid and I still love it now. So... when I saw the Aqua Petit Jelly BB from Holika Holika, the thought that occurred in my head was: jelly (one of my favourite things)+ bb cream (another one of my favorite things)= AWESOME!!!

The Holika Holika Aqua Petit Jelly BB is available in 2 shades: #1 Aqua Beige and #2 Aqua Neutral. I purchased this bb cream in #2 Aqua Neutral.

Lancome In Love Collection for Spring 2013 | Blush In Love & Baume In Love Review

Hi everyone *waves apologetically*. I am still here and the blog is still up and running!!! The weeks leading up to Lunar New Year were quite frantic and I totally decided to relax a little too much during the Lunar New Year celebration (which JUST officially ended by the way). So, that's why the blog has been slightly neglected... but it doesn't matter because here I am~~~~ 


My comeback blog post will be on some products from a collection that I deem quite unexpected from Lancome. I mean, I have never actually paid any attention to Lancome's makeup releases because they just never seem to be too exciting. The In Love collection isn't anything revolutionary in terms of color scheme or formulas. However, in terms of packaging and the feel of this collection, it is definitely something interesting enough to pique my interest.  

The Lancome In Love collection contains quite an array of products, there's single shadows, a shadow palette, eye khol liner pencil, mascara, finishing powder, bb cream, blushes, tinted lip balms and a dewy mist. I noticed that the products in the collection varies depending on your location, so you might want to have a look yourself HERE (Lancome USA) and HERE (Lancome Malaysia).

Shu Uemura Blossom Dream Collection | Spring/Summer 2013

“When spring came, even the false spring, there were no problems except where to be happiest. The only thing that could spoil a day was people and if you could keep from making engagements, each day had no limits. People were always the limiters of happiness except for the very few that were as good as spring itself.” ― Ernest Hemingway, A moveable Feast

Hi everyone. Florals and pastels have to be some of my favourite things in spring. So.... I guess there's no surprise that Shu Uemura's Blossom Dream Collection is the first spring collection to be featured on the blog. 

Out of the (rather big) collection, I purchased the Rainbow Feather S false eyelashes, 2 Unmask Palettes in pink and blue, 2 Glow On Blushes in P Soft Coral 332 & P Vivid Orange 551 and 2 Drawing Pencils in Pearly Gold & Pearly White.

Project 366: Week 42, 43, 44 & 45

Hi everyone! It's been another 9 days since I last posted something on the blog. I really feel like time is on fast forward mode lately....

I am currently working on reviewing the Shu Uemura Blossom Dream Collection for Spring 2013 (which is so amazing by the way~), so please look forward to that post coming up in the next few days. 

At the mean time, here's another Project 366 post. If you have read my previous Project 366 post (week 38-41 LINK), you would know that all my photos are jumbled up as a result of my phone-change. I really am unable to track down some photos from the thousands of messed up photos in my phone so some photos are random photos as replacements(denoted with a "r"). It's really annoying but oh wells... Hope you don't mind~

#288 Part of what my brother got me from Japan (the rest have been shown in #275 LINK). I didn't manage to go into the gift shop in Disney Sea the last time I was there because we were rushing for time (half day in Disney Sea is not enough at all). 

Knowing how much I like cute knick knacks, my brother got this Duffy key ring for me.

Clio Gelpresso Waterproof Pencil Gel Liner Review

Hi everyone. 

Do you know that I am on a never-ending quest to find a pencil-type liner that will not smudge on me? I have extremely oily (mono)lids, so pretty much any and every eyeliner product that I have tried will smudge to a certain extent. Some even give me panda eyes within minutes of application. 

The one eyeliner pencil-ish product (I say -ish because it is not technically a liner pencil) that stays put on my lids is the Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour that I love and have reviewed here on the blog (LINK). I have since collected every permanent colour of the caviar stick eye colour because I love it THAT much.

When I saw an eyeliner in Watsons that carries the title of No 1 Korean Eyeliner, I know I had to put its name to the test.

Project 366: Week 38, 39, 40 & 41

Hi everyone. We are almost 2 weeks into 2013 and that means the conclusion of Project 366 is a little over a month away (although I am a little behind on posting the photos, oooopps). 

I got a new phone recently and when I copied all the photos onto the new phone, it kinda jumbled up all my photos and the date that the photos were taken became the date that the photos were copied. A slightly nightmarish situation no doubt but I am slowly sorting all the photos out. A good thing about my new phone is that the front camera takes awesome photos so you guys will be able to see my makeup better in future review posts.

#260 Photo taken when I was reviewing the Givenchy Travel Collection Trio Rouge Interdit Shine. You can see that post HERE if you are interested.

The colour that I was wearing in this photo is #3 Blush Shine.

FIRST POST OF 2013 | Shiseido Maquillage Aura Veil Collection Review | Holiday 2012

Hi everyone!! HAPPY NEW YEAR!! 新年快樂!! 새해 복 많이 받으세요!! 明けましておめでとうございます!! Selamat Tahun Baru!! Bonne année!! I wish you lots of luck, love, happiness, health and wealth in the coming year~~ 

My first post of 2013 will be my last holiday/ Christmas 2012 makeup review on the Shiseido Maquillage Aura Veil Collection.

I spotted this set as I was leaving a department store one day but I decided not to get it initially. However, I couldn't stop thinking about it because the compact is so gorgeous!!!! I went to another Shiseido counter on the 21st of December (which we all survived, yay!!) and luckily, it was still available.
