[MAKEUP STASH] Tools for the eyes + mini reviews

Basically, I'll be reviewing/ sharing about what I have and what's good and what's not. Hope it helps you decide if you should get something! Like what I always do - read reviews before buying something.

Don't touch my territory~ *Bom style*
Hehe okay, here's a pic of my humble makeup corner in my closet.


"To those who love me, I hope to share the good things with you!
To those who hate me, these are what I eat everyday and still look ugly."
-Fenny :)





1. Eye tools! I love trying out many ways to get parallel double eyelids, so I have atleast 5 brands of normal eyelid tapes, some double sided ones, eyelid glue and eyelid fibre. Aaaand I am too lazy to use any nowadays.




-Various brands of eyelid tapes
I usually use thick eyelid tapes, been loving them since my first pack from Gmarket. It creates a thicker crease but is also more visible because the tape is thicker in length. The thinner ones don't really work for me, cos it doesn't fold maybe cos the thin ones are too frail :P I don't really stick to any brands because I get mine from neighbourhood shops :3 some are really lasting and sweat-proof and all, but some are just shitty. Heh.

-Double sided eyelid tapes (white sheets)
I believe you can get this almost anywhere. (recently Kiss Me released some, can get it from Watsons) I got mine from Gmarket and Sasa in HK. Basically, they stick your lids together so it folds and voila, a nice double eyelid. It does the job well, but it looks quite awkward if you were to apply makeup over it.

-AB Mezaikal Fibre (pink AB box)
Awesomest of the awesomes. This is hardly visible and is just a verrrryyy thin piece of fiber, but creates a very natural and lasting parallel eyelid. However it may not work for everyone, especially people with eyelids that are not that loose, like hard to crease or fold. Tip: you may not wanna stretch it too long because it loses its stickiness as it gets thinner. Not good. It's pretty expensive too, and you should be able to find this in most Sasa in SG.

-KOJI Eyetalk Clear (green/white bottle)
Maybe I don't know how to use this or something, BUT IT SUCKS. I got this cos its this and that free, and is clear as compared to the red bottle. But it just sucks. It holds on only for a few minutes before it gets rubbed off (due to friction between the lids) and it just sucks overall. Colossal waste of money~

-Twin Pit eyelid glue (white/pink bottle)
This is better than KOJI's! It costed only $2 from a sale and suprisingly it worked! I never had faith in eyelid glues since I bought the KOJI's eyetalk, but this gave me hope. HEHE. However I got it off before experiencing how long it can last and all cos I don't like the feeling of my lids stuck together.

-Dollywink mini eyelash glue (mini pink/black tube)
Not too much of an awesome eyelash glue for me but an awesome eyelid glue! Works just as well as the Twin Pit one.

-DUO eyelash glue (white/blue tube)
Awesomest of the awesomes! Need I say more? Super waterproof, sweatproof and lasts all day! Resists strong wind too! Maybe I should get the black one after this finishes. This is my second tube!

-Various tools for creating double eyelids & tweezers
Yeah the Y stick and tweezers to pick up double sided ones. No reviews for them because there isn't a good or bad one. I prefer the one that comes with KOJI's eyetalk because it is double-sided and has a normal angled one on one end and another Y shaped on the other.

-Contact lenses
I lovelovelovelovelove circle lenses! But apparently *people* feel it isn't safe, doesn't comply with SG's health standards, full of counterfeits blablabla, so it's hard to get em in SG. I only use GEO and EOS though, cos I find other brands like ifairy or barbie eye are.. suspicious. I still have a darned pair of Maxi Eye's lilac coloured lenses, and they're small like 14mm. Korean ones are like 14.5 atleast, all the way up to 15.8? Haha but the max that I wear is 14.8 cos my eyes are puny.

Thanks for looking!~

[SAMPLE REVIEW] Skinfood Salmon Eye Cream

Hi! I got this a sachet of Skinfood's Salmon Eye Cream with some Korean cosmetics, and only recently I felt like trying it :P

I know right! Salmon?! On your skin?! Well, that's Skinfood for you. Salmon is not as bad as.. CREAMY CHEESE MASK! Well, I like cheese in my food but not on my face. *squirms*




It does not smell one bit like salmon. Smells a lot like jasmine flowers, A LOT!!! An overly strong smell of jasmine, which is weird since salmon is used instead. *50 points deducted*


It's a white cream, which I feel is oily and fatty, and only a little is required. This sachet lasted me for 5 times, for both eyes! Not the best texture for an eye brightening cream. I believe this is gonna be bad for people with oily or problematic skin and may not be able to withstand the richness of this eye cream.

Stays really oily for at least 10 minutes, felt like the absorption was reeeaaalllyyy slow. Besides, I've used it for 5 times and there are no significant changes. No brighteni…

[HAUL] Holika Holika!

The first branch of Holika Holika opened its doors in Singapore @ Wisma Atria today! Supposedly at 12, but when I reached there, they were still drilling and hanging stuff, and said to be back in 30 mins.

A huge poster of its ambassador at the side of its shop, CN Blue!!!!!!! Mysterious Magic Cosmetics~ (and endorsed by guys and a cat.. Hmm mysterious enough)

Before it was open! Yet to pull down its blinds~ It's a shop tucked at the corner, beside an escalator. Near Cotton On!
Couldn't get a nice picture of its sign! But you can see a bit of its interior, which is a lavender colour and has nice shelves! It goes with a mystical or magical theme :)

My mini haul from the store! VERY DE EX PLS The highly raved about egg soap @ $20.00 for 2 eggs Make-up Starter primer @ $2.50 per piece Wonder Drawing Eyeliner Auto Stick @ $10.00 Enamel Magicara Long and Curling FREE hehehe

Its a small tube since its free! But its pretty good! There's fibre in it and the brush is kinda special…

Outing to Farmart

Hi~

Met Angie for a bonding day awhile ago. Supposingly we went to the River Safari because Angie had free tix, but we ended up at Farmart because the tix were expired. The trip to Farmart totally savaged the day!

The place is easily accessible by taking a shuttle bus ($1 each way) that comes every 30 mins, opposite Choa Chu Kang Lot 1. It was an eye-opener for me. It felt like Malaysia. Lol.


There was a pet food store cum pet hotel and I bought some food (vitakraft sticks & fish fillets) for my favourite neighbourhood cats. The pricing is slightly cheaper than town prices so I bought a bigger pack. The place mainly is a farm and food place, as online articles mentioned that they sell cheaper seafood but the stalls were mostly closed that day. There were also a bird shop and prawning area. The farm.. is really interesting.

There were super tamed parrots (or mini parrots lol)
Stacked tortoises
Creepy toads
Sleepy birds
We bought the feed while we were there. The $5 set was totally …
