Cyber Colours Dry Brush Cleaner Metal Container

Review: Cyber Colors Dry Spongie Cleaner for Brushes

I admit it. Putting off cleaning makeup brushes for a ‘tomorrow’ that never comes is all rosy and sunshine…until I have to get ready and realise, to my horror, that I’ve got exactly 1ย clean makeup brush left to use. Do I want a mix of contour powder in my blush? Perhaps an opaque jet black shadow to double up as a transition shade? Mmm that’s a NO from me. I think at that stage of desperation I would be clutching for a short term solution to fix the problem at hand. And fortunately,ย I have the perfect answer to right here! This weird magical Cyber Color Dry Spongieย Cleaner thing. Yes, that’s really what it’s called. The story behind this product was that my friend recently visited Hong Kong and decided to pick this up for me while she was shopping her heart out in Sasa (which is basically the equivalent of Sephora in Asia). From my first glance at the packaging of the Cyber Colors dry spongie cleaner, I thought it worked something like an instant …

Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara

Review: Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara Waterproof

Whether you have the most luscious numbers that you could use to fan yourself or difficult straight eyelashes like I do, we can all agree that it can be a bit tricky knowing which mascara does what. Out of all the types of beauty product I own, mascara is one of the only products that I hardly use. In fact, my impression of mascaras is that they really aren’t that different from each other both in terms of formulaย or wand and on top of that, they are such a hassle to apply properly. My fellow straight and sparse lashed girls will surely relate to my 10-minute long process of curling my lashes and then apply a couple of coats to try to get a little volume (any volume…please?). I had originally picked up the Lash Sensational mascara as a present for someone else who then told me how good it was. So in the end, I decided to pick up one for myself, especially seeing as my Benefit Real Lash mascara was on its last …

2015 Christmas Gifts: Beauty Product First Impressions

Hey guys just a quick post of the things I received this Christmas. I think from the looks of things there’s going to be a lot of reviews coming up! I love how everyone this year decided that makeup is the theme that all my Christmas gifts should follow. I guess everyone got the memo! Haha. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you to everyone in my life that has given me a little something this year. It really is a first world problem to receive or not to receive a gift for Christmas as these gifts are really just a luxury to have. 1. Chi Chi Viva La Diva Lipstick sets in the nude and vibrant colours First Impression: All lipsticks are very vibrant and glide on extremely smoothly. The finish is almost velvety and from what I can see they don’t transfer much. 2. Chi Chiย Nail Polish set in pinks 3. Mac Matte Lipstick in Whirl First Impression: Super smooth to apply and reminds me of the signature Kylie Jenner-esque brown lip shades. 4. Urban Decay Wende’s …

Christmas Blog Tag: 10 Christmas Beauty Questions Tag

Hey everybody! If you haven’t realised already with the sparkly decorations and being spoilt for choice Blogmas/Vlogmas reading and viewing options throughout the internet…IT’S NEARLY CHRISTMAS! And you what Christmas calls for? Spending time with your family and friends (especially my girlfriends) and getting to catch upย with what they’re been going and loving lately. I think this idea on catching up with girlfriends was my trigger to create this set of blog tag post full of questions about Christmas and Beauty because I want to know what everyone’s been up to and the beauty products you’ve been loving this Christmas season. So here is my 10 Christmas Beauty Questions Tag! 1. Have you been naughty or nice this year with your skincare routine? Honestly, even though I came up and wrote these questions myself…I have been very naughty with my skincare routine this whole year. Since starting my full-time job and wearing makeup everyday there are nights where I just wipe my face down with some cleansing water and slump into bed. And as expected …

Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in Medium and Sand

Review: Maybelline Fit Me! Concealer in Sand & Medium

Happy start of the week! And good luck on your week ahead because I know I will need it. The lucky product to slip under my vigorous screening process as of late is the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in both Sand 20 and Medium 25. I’ve been hearing that this Fit Me concealer is a great dupe of the NARS Radiant Creamy concealer so it sounds very promising to me! ๐Ÿ™‚ I initially bought this concealer in the Sand colour at my local supermarket thinking it wouldn’t be too far off in colour. But it turns out my guesstimation was sadly wrong and I needed to pick up the next colour up in Medium. I think this experience just tells me to stopย buying foundation-type face products from the supermarket when I don’t have a tester to try out. Lesson learnt and note taken. Prior to getting these Maybelline Fit Me concealers I was using the Rimmel Match Perfection concealer and had run through about 4 of those babies before I decided to make a switch …
