My Favourite Pink Blushes!!!

Here are 3 of my all time favourite pink blushes along with swatches! (2 powder blushes and 1 mineral blush)
Too Faced Blush in "Pinch my Petals"


 My new Favourite everyday blush! This blush is not so heavily pigmented so it's hard to overdue the application, which is good since my room has bad lighting and I always think I don't have enough on when there's already plenty on my face LOL. I also adore the packaging for this blush, I mean, look how cute it is! -what's not to like about this blush :D






Mac Powder Blush in "Well Dressed"


This is my first Mac blush and I absolutely love it! This blush applies nicely on your skin and has a slight sheen and shimmer to it. The packaging is great and there's a lot of product in the pan.

Loreal Bare Naturale Gentle Mineral Blush in "Pinched Pink"






As you can see, I've used this a lot already! This is probably my favourite drugstore blush. This blush gives a nice rosy flush to your cheeks. This blush is surprisingly more heavily pigmented compared to the 2 mentioned above. This applies nicely yet can be a bit messy as you can see on the left. Also, this blush is very convenient to take with you when you're traveling because of the built-in brush that comes with it.

Sexy Purple Corset Nails

Hello everyone! So my lovely sister just got married recently and being her bride's maid, I had to help her change in and out of many different dresses. For those of you who are familiar with wedding gowns, they are definitely a B***H to get in and out of because of the extreme lacing in the back. Anyways, without further rambling, The stressful moments of lacing my sister in and out of her wedding dress gave me the inspiration for this particular nail design. I hope you guys enjoy watching!

My New iphone4!!!

So I was too impatient to wait for the iphone5 to be released so I went ahead and upgraded my crappy broken LG Shine to the iphone4 and am absolutely loving it!! At least I saved some money lol! To me, the iphone4 is like a GPS, phone, camera, ipod, and computer all in one! And the best thing about it is that it can be like a blackberry by purchasing the Whatsapp app, to get instant messaging! You can also purchase or download a bunch of free apps too from the app store, and at the moment, I must say that Angry Birds is my favourite! I love my iphone4!

Gyaru Inspired Smokey Eye Makeup

Hello everyone, I've been trying to perfect the "Gyaru" eye look and finally felt that it was time to make a video on the tutorial. I wore circle lenses here to give my eyes a more doll like, bigger appearance. Along with false lashes and lining my eyes farther away from my natural lash line, I was able to achieve the illusion that I had huge dolly eyes. I hope you guys like the result!

Sephora Eyeshadow Primer

Sephora Makeup Palette using the colours (light sparkly pink & sparkly carbon black)

My Favourite Pink Shade Lipsticks

Hello everyone! Incase some of you don't know, I am a huge fan of pink!!!! I absolutely love pink and the only colour lipstick that you will ever catch me wearing is PINK :) Whenever I feel dull, lifeless and ugly on those days, I would throw on some pink lipstick and it would instantly make my face appear more awake, alive, and radiant and that is why I love pink lipstick so much! So here I decided to do a swatch for you guys on my top 5 favourite lipsticks from Maybelline, Revlon, and Mac.

From Left to Right:
Mac Amplified lipstick in Chatter-Box * Mac matte lipstick in Please Me * Maybelline Color sensational lipstick in Born With It * Maybelling Color Sensational lipstick in Pink Please * Revlon Creme lipstick in Pink In The Afternoon
Left: Without flash                                Right: With flash
Same order as above from left to right:
Mac Chatter-Box, Mac Please Me, Maybelline Born With It, Maybelline Pink Please, Revlon Pink In The Afternoon









 My absolute favourite lipstick of them all is pretty obvious hehe :)

          Mac Chatter-Box                                       Mac Please Me
         Maybelline Born With It                             Maybelline Pink Please


                                     Revlon Pink In The Afternoon

Note* The quality of all these lipsticks are very good. However, since the Mac matte lipstick in Please Me is a MATTE lipstick, it does tend to dry your lips out throughout the day so wearing lip balm/ointment is highly recommended. Since it is a matte lipstick however, I find that it is the most pigmented lipstick out of the 5 listed here in this blog and deposits the most true colour to even the most darkest lips. 
Thanks for visiting my blog! Come back soon for more :)

Bobbi Brown Concealer Kit Swatch and Review


So I decided to buy and try out this concealer after hearing all the hype about it. The packaging is very convenient as this duo includes a mini compact mirror. Overall, I find the quality of the creamy concealer to be really hydrating, blends easily, and it provides full coverage. For the creamy concealer, I use the shade Beige. Although the formula is quite thick and heavy, the colour it is very pigmented so it simply does it's job of concealing intense dark circles. I would say that the Bobbi Brown's creamy concealer feels very similar to Mac's studio finish concealer. (I am in the skin shade NC30 for the Mac studio finish concealer) The sheer finish pressed powder is used for dusting over the eye area after the concealer is applied and this really help make you look awake and fresh. The shade of my powder is in Pale Yellow and I absolutely love how the yellow tint really helps neutralize the blue veins under my eyes. I really like that by using the combination of the two to cover up my dark circles, they were able to stay put all day without creasing in the lines under my eyes. However, this concealer kit values at $32.00 for 3.1g which is not a lot of product for how much it cost when you think of it. After I finish what I have left of this product, I think I will go back to using my Mac studio finish concealer instead because of the price point. I would say I am still in search for my holy grail concealer!
