Sephora Haul

unnamed

I intended to post this before my holiday but I didn’t get to edit it in time. Nevertheless, I am still going to post it and have included post review. I will try to link the things I bought to the Sephora Singapore website but I noticed some of the items are not available online. So let’s see what I got…

1. IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Pressed

s1868264-main-Lhero

I was looking for a new loose powder and was contemplating between the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder or Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder. I ended up getting the IT Cosmetics pressed powder instead. The “Bye Bye Pores” really caught my eye and I decided to give it a try. It is also cheaper than the other two. While putting up the post, I noticed that they have a loose powder version. I might give it a try next time.

Post Review: I have been using it for a month. I do like that it give me a matte finish but I don’t see a significant difference in reducing the visibility of my pores.

2. IT Cosmetic No-Tug Waterproof Anti-Aging Gel Eyeliner

My bestie is a lover of the the IT Comestic gel eyeliner so I decided to give it a try.

Post Review: I tried it a couple of times and I do quite like it. I like that it draws well and is really black. It also stays on all day without smudging. However, as it is a gel liner, it is slightly more difficult to draw a precise thin line.

3. ZOEVA Brushes

Lots of youtubers have been raving about Zovea brushes so I had to give it a try. I bought the 109 Face Paint and 129 Luxe Fan which are missing from my current brushes collection. I use the 109 Face Pain brush for bronzing/ contouring and 129 Luxe Fan brush for highlighting.

Post Review: I love them!! I’m definitely going to get more.

4. Clarisonic Sensitive Brush Head

I always stock this up during sales. I use the Clarisonic to clean my face every night and I will change the brush head every 3 months. The most common question asked is “Does Clarisonic works?” My answer is yes, at least I think it works. With the timer function, it makes you spend more time washing your face. It will beep to inform you that it’s time to change area: 20 seconds on your forehead; 20 seconds down the nose and on the chin; 10 seconds each on either cheek.

May Top 5

Sorry for the lack of posts in May. It’s the clay session now so there are many matches to catch. I also went for a holiday which I will be sharing more. So let’s move on to my Top 5!

1. Ritz Apple Strudel Durian Cake  

durian cake

It’s the durian session again. With the smell of durians flowing in the air every second, my craving is back! I have never tried this before and I was surprised by how good it was. This is a D24 durian cake but I feel that it is comparable or even better than some of the mao shan wang. The durian moose was thick and creamy with chunks of durian flesh. If you are a durian lover, I recommend you to give it a try. It’s definitely value for money.

2. Gingham Smock Dress

If you read my previous ASOS haul post, you would have seen this dress. The main reason of that haul was to search for the prefect gingham dress and I’m happy to say I found one! For hot weather, I will either wear it on its own or pair it with a denim jacket.

3. Oysters

I love oysters especially if they are freshly harvest. Some people like their oysters with sauce or toppings but I like mine in their original flavour with a dash of lemon. I’m going to miss these soooooooo much 😦

4. Sweet Pea McLaren Vale Moscato

w-mosc-mv-sweet-pea

Moscato tends to give people the impression that it is a super sweet wine but this sparkling moscato found the prefect balance. This is the prefect summer drink for me.

PS: You can’t get this in Singapore but do give it a try if you happen to visit Australia.

5. South Australia Road Trip

One of the biggest highlight for May has to be the South Australia road trip. We went to Barossa Valley, Kangaroo Island and McLaren Vale. Each city has its own uniqueness and of cos their amazing views. I will definitely be back.

April Top 5

I’m trying to post on time every week. So let’s start off with an on-time April Top 5.

1. Alive Museum

The Alive Museum Singapore will be going into history by the end of this month. I had a good time with my bestie taking photos and having good laughs throughout the visit. The 50% discount is still available till end of May.

2. iPhone 7 Plus

My mobile plan has expired and it’s time to get a new phone. No surprise that I chose iPhone again and this time in red.

Happy to get something I love and at the same time contributing to an AIDS-free generation 🙂

3. HIC Juice

I am used to having constipation but it never really bothered me. As I get older, I am also trying to be healthier. One thing that I always wanted to try is body detox. I heard many good reviews on cold pressed juice and decided to try HIC. And OMG, it’s wonderful! Highly recommend!!

4. BANILA CO Clean It Zero Purity

I love how well it can remove my eye makeup (including my waterproof mascara) without causing eye irritation. Use the spatula to take a small amount and massage gently in circular motion. Rinse well in lukewarm water or use tissue to wipe off in gentle stokes. Easy and fuss-free.

ASOS Haul

asos-logo

Just got back from Korea and bought a few pieces of clothing there. But the shopaholic in me took over me and I ordered a few pieces from asos 😛

There’s what I bought but I did return most of them. Continue reading to see what I kept and what I returned. I also added the link to each item.

Let’s start off with the items I will be returning.

1Closet Lace Detail Skater Dress

This spring, I’m very into pastel and flowery print. Love this dress but the size was too small for me. I could go a size up but I feel this dress might be a little too sweet for me.

 

 

 

 

 

4

Closet London Striped Pencil Dress With Contrast Belt

Another dress in the wrong size. I like the contrast in colour but I don’t think the cutting suits me.

 

 

 

 

 

5

Girls On Film Crossover A-Line Skirt

I love the skirt but it was a little too tight for me. I would order a size up but it was out of stock 😦

 

  

 

 

 

 

Madam Rage Jacquard Swing Dress9

Another pastel dress, not sure if it was something that I like. The fitting was okay but it was too short.

 

 

 

 

 

 

10

Madam Rage Tropical Skater Dress

I like the print, very spring and floral. But it was too short 😦

 

 

 

 

 

 

7

Missguided Cold Shoulder Gingham Dress

The reason for this big haul was to get a gingham dress. I like the doll dress feel of the dress but I’m not into high collar. My sister found an alternative which I prefer so I’m returning this.

 

 

 

 

 

Pieces that I kept…

Closet Abstract Print Camisole Dress

6

Closet has always been one of my favourite brand. I love the print; very spring with the pinkish print. I can see myself wearing it in autumn/ winter with the navy base.

Pieces Tammi Pleated Stripe Skirt

8

Monochrome pleated stripe skirt will never go wrong. I can pair it with pastel top for a more spring feel or a darker colour top for an autumn/ winter look.

Daisy Street Nude Studded Ankle Strap Ballet Flat Shoes

11

Recently, I have been loving shoes/ heels with studs. Adding this nude flats into my massive shoes collection.

QED London Cold Shoulder Gingham Smock Dress

3

Returned the Missguided gingham dress and kept this instead. It fits perfectly and ticks everything I like.

ASOS Smock Dress With V Neck and Trumpet Sleeve In Floral Print

2

Trumpet sleeves is in trend now but I’m not sure if it is for me. Love it so I’m keeping it!

Seoul Haul – Beauty

IMG_8751.JPG

A mini shopping haul! I didn’t buy much from Korea this time round as I still have tonnes of masks left from my previous trip. I concluded I’m a lippy junkie! Look at the number of lipstick/ lip gloss I bought!

1. Etude House Dear My Glass Tinting Lips-Talk

lips-talk

The formula of the lipstick is wonderful, super moisturizing. My lips are super chipped after the cold Korea trip so this is the lipstick I’m reaching for now. Other than the wonderful formula, you can personalized it by choosing your own casing.

how to make

This range come with 20 colours and 20 cases. I chose GR701 – Washing Jeans Mint and BE101 – See through Beige. Both are very wearable day to day colours. As for the casing, I got #14 – Playing with Fire and #15 – Love Flamingo. I thought #14 was mini lipsticks but it’s actually matchsticks. Haa!

GR701

BE101

2. Etude House Wonder Fun Park Dear Darling Soda Tint

Tint

I tried a Dear Darling Tint before and I love it. This range of Dear Darling Soda Tint is especially cute with lots of fun colour. I can’t help it but bought 3 different colours!

3. CLIO Virgin Kiss Tension Lip Oil Tint

clio

This lip oil tint is not from the latest collection. The sales assistant sort of discouraged me to buy it saying that it will be sticky. I bought it anyway as I like liquid lipstick. I tried it and I really like it. It has a citrus taste and it’s not sticky at all. I bought a coral colour to prepare for summer.

4. NEOGEN Bio-Peel Gauze Peeling Green Tea

green tea

This is a gentle chemical and manual exfoliator. The triple-layer gauze pad uses threading technology to gently remove dead skin while the AHA chemical exfoliant deeply penetrates to dissolve dirt and oil in the skin. Read many good reviews online and recommended by my bestie 🙂

5. BANILA CO Clean It Zero Purity

banila 1

This is an oldie and a goodie. I bought 1 from the airport to try a few months ago and I LOVE IT! So this time round, I bought 6 from Korea. Wahaa!!!

Miso Udon Soup

Hot soupy food for breakfast is my favourite. But it’s always hard to make it on a weekday. Here’s an easy recipe which you can make your own miso udon soup at office.

Ingredients:

  • 1 packet of udon
  • 5 crab sticks
  • 2 leafy vegetable
  • 1 packet of miso paste

Directions:

  1. Add all the ingredients into a bowl.
  2. Add hot water.

Viola! And you’re done!

Tips: To make the soup extra hot, you can microwave it for 1-2 mins. You also add more vegetable like enoki mushroom.
