NOTD : The Pastel French tip

Such a long time since the 1st NOTD post.

Because the Spring is here so I'm in mood for pastel!  Just choose any color combo you feel like go well together :) Here I'm using Essie "Better Together" as the base and OPI "Planks a lot" for the French tip :)


My favorite lip balms

I've been very busy and stressful these week. Can't wait for holiday!

Today I share with you guys some of my favorite lip balms. None of them is expensive or hard to find but all work like a dream for my easy-to-be-chapped lips :) Hope you like this post and give them a try if you haven't :D

I have tons of lip balms but these 4 are my all time favorites as all of them are almost finish :)

From left to right : The body shop Lip butter in Sweet Lemon - Carmex Moisturising lip balm spf 15 in Cherry - Nivea Pure & Natural in Honey&Milk - The Body Shop Born Lippy in Watermelon 

The Body Shop Lip Butter in Sweet Lemon is definitely my first love! It's creamy, thick, smell and even taste amazing. Very suitable for who has sensitive lips.

I think Carmex should be my most favorite out of 4 although it's the newest in my collection. I use it on my clients to very quickly secure the chapped lips. I like to apply a thick layer before go to bed and wake up with smooth lips. I don't like the smell of the original one so I got it in Cherry, would love to try the Strawberry as well :D

Honey is very good for dry lips and I love the smell of everything with Honey in it so this lip balm won my heart! Not to glossy/shiny but moisture very well and smell yummy! 

Another delicouse lip balm from The Body Shop. I have the whole range of their Born Lippy but always come back to this one. Very yummy smell and works wonderful :)

So that's it! I hope you enjoy this post. Sorry for lacking of updating I still don't know how to get rid of stress >"< Hope everything will be back to normal soon! Holiday is very near here ~~~

Thank for reading and I see you soon :) xx

Small Tips : Heated Curler

Want your lashes lasts all day? Have straight lashes and having a hard time curl your eyelashes? 

I have a very small tip but effective for you ;) 

All you need is :

A good eyelash curler. I'm using Shu Uemura :) But you can use any eyelash curler which is your favorite :D

A hair dryer :

Keep your eyelashes curler about 30cm away from the dryer, turn the dryer on and set it in medium heat, keep it for about 10-15 seconds until you can feel your eyelash curler warm up (not HOT! don't burn your eyelids), then use it as usual. 

I have straight, fine eyelashes and since I use this tip, my curl lasts all day. Also I recommend a good mascara that hold you curl as well. A good drugstore one beside my trusted Dolly wink is Max Factor False Lashes Effect :)

Hope it helpful

The winter had passed
And the spring has come
We have withered
And our hearts are bruised from longing

I'm singing my blues


Hero products of the month : February


I had been very busy, stress, lazy etc for writing this post for January, so I decided to include it here in February post! Hope you enjoy because I have a lot of stuff to show <3 Some of them are from Asia, but don't worry I'll provide the link for you to buy them if you want. Also I don't have any sponsorship with them to link their websites, they are just good company/seller that I always buy from and happy with the service :)

Batiste Dry Shampoo in Blush. Do you have an annoying hair like me? That it's dry but greasy roots. I could do something with dry end but grrrr the greasy roots freak me out. This dry shampoo is cheaper than your burger and works like heaven. Good smell as well. Now I can deal with my second-day hair! 

Available in Superdrug for £1.49 (There are many smell to choose from :D)

Hada Labo Lotion and Moisturising Milk 

These 2 products changed my life forever! Can't tell you how wonderful they are with incredibly cheap price tag! If you are confusing what is what, the one in the left which is higher is the magic lotion that is  best seller lotion in Japan, every bottle sold every 4 seconds! If you have dry skin like me, drop 4 drops of this gel-like lotion on your palm, and pat it on your skin for 2 minutes, you will be surprise how dramatic your skin become smooth, bouncy like baby skin! I've used them for a month and my skin texture changed for better. It's smooth, bouncy and lovely to touch. I highly recommend you use it with moisturising milk as well for a dewy healthy skin. For you who have combination/oily skin, I think the lotion is enough, you might want to use it less than 4 drops. Hada Labo contains purest Super Hyaluronic Acid which is perfect for dry skin and anti-aging ( dry skin caused wrinkles). Hada Labo is hands down the most popular skin care product in Japan. 

Updated : Found the link for you guys on Sasa : The lotion £8.80 here (sorry currently out of stock at the moment I write this post hope they back in stock soon) and the milk/elmusion £11 here  ( Also for people who are confusing about buying from Sasa because they are Hong Kong based, I recommend you co-buy with your friends because if you spend over 60 you get free shipping, and Sasa always has offer so make sure to check them out, there are plenty of awesome stuffs :D)

Shu Uemura High balancing oil cleansing

I just love this baby so much, it's my HG make-up remover! You might think it's pricey £56 for 500ml bottle, but I don't think so. Removing make up is very important for me, and this oil cleansing make my skin so smooth, so clean, so moist after I use it. Lovely smell as well. I got it for around 3 month and still have a lot left.

Collection 2000 Cream puff in Cotton Candy and Dolly Wink Volume mascara 

They are my go-to product this month. Love them! 

Skin79 Oriental BB cream

Finally I found a BB cream that I can really like! I highly recommend this one for who has dry skin or love the dewy, natural finish. It just a little bit darker than my skin tone at first but then tend to match my skin very well. It's super easy to blend with fingers, contains spf 25. And come with a lovely cream blush :D I purchase it from Ebay and got it after 10 days ( send from Korea). I used it when I'm in a hurry and don't have time to apply my beloved Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation.

I purchase from Ebay from this seller for £14.32

Peter Thomas Roth Ultra-lite Oil free sunblock SPF30

I use this sunblock under my GA foundation as moisturer, sunblock and primer. Lightweight, works wonderfully and doesn't break me out :) For the day I don't wear any make up I just use a regular Nivea one.

£16.75 at beautybay.com

No.7 Vital Bright Cream Blush in Blooming Pink

I use this one almost everyday, give me healthy glowy cheek <3 a dupe for it is NYX cream blush in Hot pink but I found that NYX one is glossier while No.7 is more matte, so No.7 one has a stronger staying power :)

£10.00 at Boots

NYX auto eyebrow pencil in Charcoal 

Perfect for those who have black hair like me. I used brown color before but it's just wrong for me. Staying power is average :) 

£4.00 at NYX

Forget to take picture, the Flucinar tub saved me from the days I got red spots and dry patches from testing Paula's choice AHA/BHA gel. It's just like chemical fat like Vaseline I think so? I just apply a thin layer all over my face after cleansing and tomorrow my skin is back to normal. Also for the Paula's Choice 1% BHA Gel, I think it's too dry for me, I've ordered 1% BHA Lotion that formulated for Dry Skin, because even the gel too dry for me, it removed my blackhead and make my pores smaller after 2 uses. Will post about it later :)

So that's the end of the post, I hope you enjoy reading. Until next time, take care everyone :) Comment below if you have any questions or just want to share with me your favorite products ;) xx
