Favourite daily lippies!

Hi!

Its been awhile! I have been (as usual) trying out stuff and here I have some of my favourite lippies for awhile. I rotate among them everyday and here's my review!

 I shall spare you the sight of my very well-used lippies but here are the names:

- Tory Burch Pas du Tout (orange and gold boxy casing)
- Giorgio Armani Rouge d'Armani Sheers 304 (black casing)
- Jill Stuart Lip Blossom 09 Brilliant Lily (silver casing)
- Urban Decay Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss Liar
- Urban Decay Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss Streak

Swatches

Tory Burch Pas du Tout 
Creamy, sheer and slightly glittery nude pink-brown color. It is said to be slightly scented with some kinda Tory Burch perfume but I honestly find that it smelt like cheap lipsticks. This is pretty sheer but it does match my skin tone and the color does show up on my not-very-pigmented lips. Very moisturizing during its approximately 3 hours wear time but not much beyond that. Oh, and the packaging is really pretty!! Tory Burch cosmetics is available at Robinsons Orchard, if you're wondering. This lipstick costed $45.

Giorgio Armani Rouge d'Armani Sheers 304
Also a sheer lipstick as stated in the name. More of a coral color but leaning to pink. Its a little on the not-so-moisturizing side for a sheer lipstick and will accentuate any dryness or flakes on the lips. The wearing time is however very long, about 5 hours with eating and drinking. It also has no significant scent. Giorgio Armani cosmetics is exclusively sold at DFS Scotts and I don't remember how much this costs.. haha. Keep in mind that this is meant to be sheer (their satin series is not bad too, but not a fave haha)

Jill Stuart Lip Blossom 09 Brilliant Lily
A glittery, translucent reddish orange color. Its very smooth, and more of a jelly than creamy texture. It has noticeable glitters and the finish is very glossy. Doesn't last very long with eating and drinking, probably like 2 hours (haha) but I really like the color while it lasts. Smells like most other Jill Stuart products... which I don't know how to describe but its very prominent. Got this in Hong Kong and I would definitely get more the next time I'm there!

Urban Decay Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss in Liar and Streak
Liar is a pinkish color and Streak is a coral-peach color. Both have no glitter is of the same creamy, sticky, rich texture despite the colors being sheer. Most reviews on the internet mentioned that its way too sheer and should have better pigmentation since its not exactly cheap. Honestly, I use this as a lipbalm; by applying a very thin layer for less gloss and less color. I have two of these because I couldn't decide on one #girlproblems. This gloss is my favouritest gloss ever, and its coming from a girl who don't like using lipglosses. It gives a very even and smooth finish which makes my lips look very full and healthy. Upon application, there is a slightly minty feeling and it taste/smells of the food item I dislike... peanut butter. Thank goodness the smell don't last and is quite faint. It is also meant to nourish the lips and there's some study that consumers find that their lip conditions  (lip lines, dryness etc) get better from wearing this gloss, and I have to say that this claim is true. The moisturizing effect lasts the day even if I wear it for a few hours. Wear time for these is about 3 hours w/o eating or drinking. I wouldn't say that the price is reasonable but I really felt that it was well worth the price as it delivers not just a temporary color but also a lasting moisture. This retails for $32 each in Sephora Singapore.

As you can see, all the colors are very neutral and I feel very comfortable in them most of the time. Will update more, thanks for reading!

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 …

[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…

DIY blusher cushion with a finished compact

Hi!


I always wanted to buy a cushion blusher, seeing how convenient how cushion foundations are but I've never actually gotten down to get one seeing how expensive they were. The one that I wanted was an IOPE one cos it comes in a usual cushion compact with a mirror and it looks so easy to use! So I took out my finished cushion compacts (an Etude House Lock'n Summer one and an IOPE Air Cushion XP) and washed them really clean. Also, I found myself rarely using the Etude House Water Color cream blushes (I only tried the orange once and the rest were brand new and sealed.. man, the result of hoarding and forgetting what you have) because I don't know of a proper way to blend creamy blushes lol. I liked its colors and finish though; feels matte and smooth but it does not look overly powdery. The blushers are the right texture for the deed, so I used them for my DIY blusher cushion. P/s. this isn't exactly a tutorial as I think most people can do this without instructions,…
