Taiwan Skincare SOPHIE MONK's celebrity spokesperson MAKIYO comes to Singapore on 4th November!

prior to receiving an invite to the event where Taiwan Celebrity Spokesperson MAKIYO will be promoting the Taiwan Skincare SOPHIE MONK, i barely even hear anything about this skincare line. after doing a bit of research though, i think i'll be looking forward to trying out this line though!!!

OK, let me contain my excitement first and get on with the title. but, if you are curious like me you'll be asking, "wait, what the heck is Sophie Monk???" Sophie Monk celebrates beauty in women and is fronted by Japanese/Taiwanese celebrity, Makiyo. Its R&D and cute packaging puts it at the forefront of beauty solutions for young ladies wanting beauty, offering solutions for dry skin, acne through a comprehensive and tightly-edited selection of whitening, hydrating, anti acne products as well as hydrating masks. their website brand story also mentions that "Sophie Monk gathers Japanese Designer + Taiwan Latest R&D Technology proudly presents Non Greasy, Zero Burden …

tag, i'm it!

it's a beautiful Friday - it's a day away from the weekend once again! i'm thankful as most of the week was full of sunshine which definitely influenced my cheerful disposition throughout it! (^_^) on that note, i deemed it fitting to post this tag reply now.

NOTD: Deborah Lippmann I Know What Boys Like

hey ladies, how are you all doin'? it's a sunny Thursday yet it feels like a Monday as yesterday was a holiday. i actually wish work week is like this - two days work, next day off, next two days work then next two days off. don't you agree with me? lol seriously though, i really felt much relaxed and energized with this kind of working arrangement. oh well, at least i experienced it once this year! (^_^)
yesterday i shared with you my second purchase from Luxola and i've mentioned my Luxola facebook contest price being delivered together with that haul - Deborah Lippmann I Know What Boys Like. when i saw swatches of this online i thought "oh ok, that's a nice blue." how wrong was i? it's actually a gorgeous periwinkle blue and it's easy to fall in love with it!

i may look composed but i was really excited when i received this prize!
more pictures and swatches galore after the jump!

2nd Luxola haul

I've just finished painting my nails fresh polish colors and all i can say is, I'm really "blue". LOL that's because i got Deborah Lippmann I Know What Boys Life on my nails and Orly Royal Navy on my toenails. am loving both of 'em! fun fact: i won this Deborah Lippmann shade on a facebook contest by Luxola! i don't really win contests so when i did, i was flabbergasted! and with a great prize too!
Ok, so getting to the title... Luxola sent me an email that i won this gorgeous nail polish and i can claim it at their office but it's a bit far from where i live so i asked if they can deliver it to me instead next time i order. And here is that haul:

from left to right: Deborah Lippmann I Know What Boys Like, Sleek Makeup Pomegranate blush, Sleek Makeup Dip-it Duo Volumising Mascara and Liquid Eyeliner 24 Karat

i was able to give all of these a try for the past few days and i'll be posting separate entries for each.

my first order from Luxola was sent …

FOTD: tutti fruity!

happy Tuesday everyone! i am pleased with myself this morning, as i woke up instantly when my alarm went off - even though i really was tempted to sleep some more! *pats my back* hmn, it could probably be due to the fact that tomorrow is a public holiday (Deepavali) so i felt like it's a Friday! (^_^)
last weekend, the creative side of me sort of got awakened, giving birth to this look - tutti fruitty. i recently acquired MAC Hot Paprika (from Styledriven Collection) and i was playing with it. i really love the hue, it's nothing like anything in my makeup stash. it's kinda orangey red, very pretty and flattering on my skintone. and well, it does look like paprika but a bit lighter, i really love it. the pigmentation is awesome too, but then again i usually don't get disappointed with MAC eyeshadow color payoff! i'll review that product on another post.

(pardon the not so clear resolution, as this was taken with an iPhone cam only)
anyway, i created this look to steer …

Review: Dolly Wink eyelash case

good morning ladies! it's the start of work week once again! hope you are all looking forward to this week even though you may still be wishing it's still the weekend. :P
previously i've shared with you my new found love for falsies. although i really love the style of the first lash i've successfully strutted with, i am not so much loving the box - it's bulky and gets squished easy (made out of carton). plus, i worry that the lashes may get squished in the process. that's when i decided to get an eyelash case.

jump for more pictures and review!

even though it's hard, i must let you go...

wah! the other day i had to part ways with a long time beloved...

my Coastal Scents Pink Kabuki Brush broke!!!

oh, gone are your glory days...

i must bid you farewell now... (T_T)

NOTD: Deborah Lippmann Across the Universe

sunny Thursday to you lovely readers! i just love hot weather even if it makes me perspire like a construction worker *LOL* because i'd rather have sun than rain! seeing the sun shine instantly lights up my mood and gets me ready for the day ahead. (^_^)
with that said that, won't you agree glitter in a bottle almost mimics the sunshine? that's probably the reason why am so into glitter polish right now. and Deborah Lippmann Across the Universe delivers on the bling bling! it has what i want in polish - glittery shine and still some mystery (with the dark hue background).

more pictures and swatches after the jump!
