Midnight Sparkle






Revlon - Midnight Affair
China Glaze - Liquid Crystal

I finally got some ME time today to give myself a little manicure after leaving them bare for an entire week. Not only because I literally had no time due to assignments and studying for a midterm, I also decided it was a good break for my nails because removing the previous manicure (here) was such a pain in the butt and it really damaged my nails. Never will I cover all my nails with China Glaze's Marry A Millionaire again! It was by far the most difficult glitter nail polish to remove EVER :O I literally had to pick at my nails to get it off cause my nail polish remover couldn't even make it budge in the slightest. Marry A Millionaire is like the face of an angel but with a devil's heart. Trust me, it was a nightmare.

Anyway.

I should give Liquid Crystal the spotlight in this post! The glitter polish is opaque in one coat, so technically I could've just skipped out on painting a base colour on my accent nail. And as with most glitter polishes, it dried really quick as well. Liquid Crystal also has a subtle uniqueness - when your turn your nail at certain angles, you can see a purple tinge! Kind of like a duochrome, which I find pretty fascinating. Love this! But then again, when do I not love a glitter polish? hahaha. :P

Bronze Goddess.

I don't know about you, but whether it's spring, summer, fall or winter, contouring and bronzing powders have always been part of my daily makeup routine because I feel like I have a fat face. Yes, fat....well okay, more like a wide and flat face :$ I've always been envious of those who have nice defined facial features, especially nice cheek bones - so thankfully, there's makeup to the rescue! Don't have it? Fake it.

ELF Studio Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder
One of those heated products all over the internet because gurus found a cheap dupe to Nars's Orgasm & Leguna duo. I wish I could give you a comparison but I don't have it plus, I'm sure you can find those reviews easily yourself or you've probably seen them already. My thoughts on this duo is that, I'm actually not that amused. Yes, the bronzer is super pigmented but to me, that's also the downfall of the product as well. It's hard to NOT look like hey-everyone-I've-abused-my-face-with-bronzer kind of look. In flash photography, if you have too much on you'll look like you have an orange face and a ton of makeup on - not attractive. So a word of advice: beware. I mean, if you can control it well, then this bronzer isn't too bad. I usually just dab my brush in once and gently sweep it on to get a boost of definition for my cheeks. The blush is a nice peachy pink with gold shimmers, but personally I'm not a fan of blushes with glitters cause I like the healthy glow/sheen instead of sparkly face look. Overall, this is an "okay good" product for me.

The Pros
- cheap and affordable ($3 from ELF website)
- travel friendly
- has a big mirror
- packaging is pretty sleek

The Cons
- overly pigmented
- not very accessible outside of the US
- shipping is expensive if you do not live in the States so you need to buy A LOT to even out the prices or combine orders with friends

Overall Rating: 6.5/10

ELF Studio Bronzer in Warm
I think this bronzer is perfect for those who are after the subtle summer glowy look. This is the least pigmented out of all of the bronzers I have, but not in a bad way because it's for the satin finish. In the swatch below, you can see that it gives you a nice sheen and not a glitter finish. I don't have much against this powder, but as mentioned earlier - I look for bronzers for contouring and defining purposes...so this isn't what I was exactly looking for even though it's a pretty good and affordable product. 

The Pros
- very affordable ($3 from ELF website)
- travel friendly
- gives you a nice sheen 
- can use the colours individually or mix it together
- big mirror
- packaging is sleek

The Cons
- if you mix the colours together, you'll ruin the highlighting shade (as seen in the photo)
- not very accessible outside of the US, shipping is expensive if you do not live in the States so you need to buy A LOT to even out the prices or combine orders with friends

Overall Rating: 8/10

NYC Matte Bronzer in Sunny and NYX Blush Powder in Taupe
As you can see from the picture above, I love these two to death. NYC Sunny looks a little crazy but that's because this was my first bronzer and my only bronzer for the longest time (~2 years?). I admit that when I first got it, I thought I wasn't a fan because it has more of an orange tint to it. But it started to grow on me as I've used it more and more. Compared to other bronzers I've swatched and tested in stores, this one actually isn't all that bad, in fact it's good. I literally use this every day - so it's no surprise that I've hit pan now. There's been rumours that this is going to be discontinued :( I really hope not. So the next time I go to the drugstore, I'm definitely buying backups.

I bought the NYX Blush Powder last year at IMATS as a contouring powder, and yes, I use this every day too - underneath NYC. For my light-medium skin tone, this is my perfect contouring shade. It is a matte taupe brown color with absolutely no trace of orangeness to be found. It's pigmented but subtle at the same time, with a bit of blending it really looks like a natural shadow on my face. Besides the face, I sometimes use this to contour my nose with a small fluffy blending brush. The reason why I love these two powders so much is not only for the colour matching my skin tone well, but also because the powders are moderately pigmented so there's no hassling application concerns. I like no brainer products.

The Pros
- products are affordable (NYC ~$4, NYX ~$5-6 CDN)
- moderately pigmented
- lasts for a long time, even with everyday use
- matte powders, good for contouring
- colour is generally good for wide range of skin tones 

The Cons
- NYC packaging is really cheap (but i guess you can't complain for the price)

Overall Rating: 10/10 (for both powders)

Shu Uemura Bronzer in 02 Warm Sun
The newest member to my little collection of bronzers. I take back a little something I've said in the previous post (here) and that is: it's not matte. I thought it was, but after I calmed down from my excitement of receiving free makeup...upon closer inspection of the product in the pan, I realized there are tiny scattered silver glitters in it. On the face it's not very noticeable, so it's no big deal but I just wanted to make that little correction :P If you disregard the glitter particles, the color may seem similar to NYC Sunny but this has more of a reddish hue whereas, NYC is more of an orangey-brown colour. And this Shu Uemura bronzer is slightly more pigmented but not overboard like the ELF duo. So far, I can't say if I like this more than my NYC matte bronzer because I've only had it for a week or so, but it is a genuinely good product.

The Pros
- travel friendly
- packaging is sturdy
- moderately pigmented
- the product/colour is good for a wide range of skin tones

The Cons
- it contains small silver glitter
- expensive (I think this might be ~$39)

Overall Rating: 10/10

Polka Dots & Bows




Boyfriend Blazer - vintage
Blouse - Forever 21
Skirt - Jacob Jr.
Floral Cuff - Forever 21
Black Tights - Joe Fresh 

This is my second office outfit that I pulled together this morning in a hurry haha. I'm glad it turned out to be the medium I wanted between formal and casual - all thanks to the cute bow blouse and slightly rolled up sleeves. The polka dots on the blouse are small, so it's not showing up well on camera. I'm currently loving this boyfriend blazer that once belonged to my mom (we took out the shoulder pads, so it doesn't look funky :P), it's so versatile and perfect for the current transitioning season. 

Volunteering wasn't as bad today cause they recruited two more people during the afternoon shift (I'm not a loner anymore yay! LOL) and I got off early! I finished my box of data info so my supervisor let me off since there's no point in starting something new near the last 20 mins. :D

Bag of New Tricks

A few days ago, I went over to my sister's place for dinner and she asked me to help her use up some of her cosmetics because she has too much and so much that it'll last her more than a life time lol. Oh dear, of course I'd love to help! ;) Because my sister is the high end type of gal, I now have the opportunity of owning and trying expensive makeup for free yay! :D haha. Most of these products have been used besides the Dior eyeshadow palette in Earth Tones and the Lancome gift with purchase eyeshadow quad & mascara - some people may cringe at the thought of using secondhand makeup but these are only used by my sister, so I think it's okay. Plus, how can I say no to expensive, (mostly) limited edition and good quality makeup?! 



Christian Dior 5-Colour Eyeshadow Palette - 190 Charming Fantasy and 673 Earth Tones
These shadows are smooth, velvety, pigmented and unique! I think I now understand why my sister is a Dior addict. I believe these eyeshadow palettes cost around $54 CDN which is extremely pricey but if you can afford it, I think it's worth the money. But of course, you should purchase under considerable picking and choosing of the more unique palettes.


Left to Right
Lancome Color Design Sensational Effects Eyeshadow (Exhibition, Latte, Drama, Valcano)
YSL Palette Horizon For The Eyes
Chanel Silky Eyeshadow Duo in 71 Etoile-Soleil
Lancome: The eyeshadows are very good quality - smooth, soft and pigmented. With the Michelle Phan and Lancome hype, I think I might buy some Lancome products in the near future - especially the matte lipsticks. The finish of Drama (shimmery purple) actually reminds me of Urban Decay's Fishnet eyeshadow from the Deluxe Palette (except this is purple and the other is a pink/magenta), they both have a blue/violet hue in it which I find really attractive.

YSL: The packaging of this palette is very pretty as well as the asymmetrical eyeshadow layout. It's a shame that the shimmery white shadow in the palette is only at the surface, with one touch or one swipe, the colour will be gone. I think this shimmery white shade is the best I've seen - intense pigmentation and beautiful white shimmer. However, The quality of the dark blue and turquoise shade is a bit disappointing (more so with the dark blue) because it's not pigmented at all. In the swatch below, I had to rub my finger quite a few times in order to get a decent colour pay off on my hand (I can imagine how hard it will be putting this on my lids with a brush). So in the end, my favourite colour from this limited edition quad will have to be the shimmery white and bronze shade - good colour pay off and beautiful colour. 

Chanel: These two eyeshadows are good as an all over base colour or highlight and are made in good quality. However, personally speaking I don't think I would spend the money to get these colours. They're pretty, but I don't think they're worth it as I can easily find versatile all over base colours with cheaper alternatives. The packaging is classy and chic though. 

Beaute de Kose A-6 Aqua Tint
The white shimmery shade is actually a cream base with an aqua duochrome, the texture is velvety with a kind of softness that is hard to describe. The turquoise eyeshadow is absolutely stunning and unique, my sister said that she has not seen anything comparable or similar to this colour which I agree. I wish my camera would do all these eyeshadows more justice because this palette is just too beautiful.


Shu Uemura Bronzer in 02 Warm Sun
Christian Dior Dior Bronze Blush in 002 Sunset Fiesta
I absolutely love these two face products! The Shu Uemura bronzer is matte and perfect for contouring. At first, I was a little skeptical because the color looks quite orange and I don't want to end up looking like a oompa loompa but upon application it appears very natural on the face and the colour is easily buildable. As for Dior's Sunset Fiesta, the colours are insanely gorgeous and well put together! You basically have a highlighter, blush and bronzer all in one. I love the coral blush colours in the middle and the subtle shimmery pink highlighter is very pretty!

Dolly Wink Liquid Eyeliner
Lancome Hypnose Doll Lashes
KaneboTiffa Eyeliner in PK-1
Dolly Wink Eyeliner: I was about to tell my sister to keep this to herself because of the drying effect that I've previously experienced with my own (I've review this here). I was very skeptical about the product - thinking that it'll just be the same...but I was wrong! And this one has a much more pigmented and smooth application and most importantly, it does not have that annoying drying effect! I guess the one that I originally had might've been a defect? 

Lancome Hypnose Dolly Lashes: I will do a review on this later so stay tuned!

Tiffa Eyeliner: a shimmery pink liquid eyeliner that is in a twistable brush tip pen form. The colour is really pretty and I can't wait to wear this during the summer. Coloured eyeliners are the perfect alternative for those lazy days where you don't want to spend time on eyeshadow but still have a well polished and chic look :)


Jill Stuart Jelly Eye Colour in 04 Mint Sorbet
I have another Jelly Eye Color from here and I must say, these little things are too cute! Well, in general Jill Stuart products have packaging to die for. As the name suggests, this particular colour is a light shimmery frosty mint shade that I'm in love with and can't wait to use it.

Body Glitter (need to find out the name)
This body shimmer powder actually belongs to another brand instead of Ipsa, but my sister put the powder in this container for easier application. I forgot where this is from, so I have yet to find out again. She gave me this powder because summer is finally on it's way. This looks like it will a beautiful shimmer when dusted over the body - especially over the collar bone. Can't wait to try this out and get that gorgeous glowy tanned skin!


Being able to try out so much good quality and beautiful high end makeup, I'm not sure if this will be the start of another unhealthy relationship lol.

First Day In The Office



Cardigan - Mariposa
Razor Back Tank - Forever 21
Trousers & Belt - H&M
Crossbody Bubble Bag - Chloe
Sunglasses & Flower Bangle - Forever 21


It was my first day volunteering yesterday and this was the outfit I came up with. Even though it's only a volunteer position, our clothing conduct is still regulated to office wear. After going through the orientation power point slides I realized I wasn't allowed to wear leggings, denim, shorts or sandals....and I just happened to wear my Zara sandals lol...oops. Now I'm having a hard time trying to figure out what I should wear to work....I ALWAYS wear leggings lol. If I don't wear leggings I'm in jeans. I mean, I understand jeans, shorts and sandals...but leggings too?? Really?! :( ....ugh, what am I going to do?! >_<" These are my only pair of trousers by the way lol.... -_-'

Anyways, my first day went by alright. There really isn't much exciting to data entry (not that I was expecting a whole lot but still)...within less than 2.5 hrs I finished 100 entries. Hopefully things will get better because I was the only volunteer in the afternoon shift and I was pretty bored being in this large cubicle all by myself....sigh~

What's In My Bag? - My Life.


Since I'm at school for most of my days, there are a lot of things I carry around. One time, my guy friend was nice enough to hold my bag for a few seconds while I was doing something and he asked "What do you carrying in here, your life?" HAHA. Yeap, pretty much. It feels a little weird carrying a Balenciaga to school, but this bag is honestly the perfect size for me. I used to carry a big tote bag but I just made use of the size and shoved way too much in there and it started to hurt my shoulder. I do have a backpack but it's a little inconvenient to reach for things.

Besides all this stuff, I also carry a notebook to school of course but I don't think you guys would care to see that right? haha On a day out, I try to carry as less as possible - so you'll only find my wallet, phone, keys, makeup bag, and water in here.


Nature Valley Granola Bar: convenient munchies especially good for people like me who tend to skip breakfast because I have a hard time saying goodbye to my bed in the morning lol.

iclicker: for the annoying profs who like to use these things =_=;

Calculator: taking a stats class this semester but, it seems like I don't need it cause all the calculations are pre-done on the lecture slides. There's only one thing that SFU students like about this calculator...it can do the quadratic equation!

Pencil Case: self explanatory right? Actually, I only have a pencil case because I needed it for last semester's finals, normally I just shove my pens in the front pocket of my bag.

Ipod Shuffle: I love the colour green and of course, I love music :) I haven't updated it for a while though, cause my desktop computer died on me and I had all my music in there sigh~ so I'm still in the process of re-downloading music.

Mirror: it came with the bag! I actually like this because it's so handy - the fact that it doesn't fit in my makeup bag I actually reach for this more often because it's easy to find and all I have to pull it out and see my face quickly. I feel quite odd and self conscious checking myself out in the public, so I like to use my mirror fast (am I the only one?....maybe I'm weird lol or well...I'm just not that type of girl).

Keys: key chain was bought at London Drugs during the Winter 2010 Olympics - I love our cute little mascots! Too bad their faces got rubbed off :(

Miu Miu Glasses & Case: cause I'm blind lol...these are my stronger glasses but I usually wear my old ones because I need to get these adjusted, they never seem to feel comfortable.

Makeup Bag: I love this little bag because it feels so soft and velvety! I'm sure all you ladies are most interested in this little bag :P see below for more details haha

Gum: it's always good to have something that gets rid of your/other people's stinky breath :P

Juicy Wallet: my brother bought it for me as a Christmas gift a few years back while he went shopping in the states :) It's a nice wallet, but because of the signature fuzzy towel material it gets dirty easily and likes to pick up fluff.

Cellphone: Sony Ericsson K660i - my sister's old phone that she gave me. I want a new one cause the freezing and restarting thing is starting to get on my nerves =_=;

Water Bottle: I need to drink more water. I used to carry my Starbucks water bottle that a friend bought for me but it's too big to fit into my Balenciaga - especially with so much crap.

The exciting stuff? I guess haha. I don't bring out much makeup with me because I never/rarely do touch ups throughout the day. The majority of my makeup bag consists of lip products that I tend to forget to reapply LOL. So yeah....this makeup bag is kind of useless, but I like knowing that I have all the essential items when I need it.


Biotherm Mirror: got it from those gift with purchases, it has 2 mirrors - one normal and one magnifying

Contacts Case: these are only in here whenever I am wearing my lenses

Blink Lubricating Eye Drops: This eye drop is for cleaning out dust and dirt particles that make your eyes feel uncomfortable when wearing contact lenses. I used this more often when I still wore my (RPG) hard contact lenses because they catch dust way to often and make my eyes hurt and water like crazy ugh (I'm so glad I finally got my normal prescribed soft lenses!), but this is also suitable for soft lenses so I still use this once in a while when I need it.

Bobby Pins: for days when I have my hair up or when I need my hair out of my face

Band-Aid: You never know what will happen throughout your day! ;) hahah jk. I have this because of painful flats that I put my poor feet in lol.

Tide-to-Go: I'm clumsy, period.

Maybelline Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner: I have this with me because I didn't have a better alternative before I got my Dolly Wink eyeliner. It's not a good eyeliner and I don't recommend it but, I'm just trying to use it up.

Dolly Wink Eyeliner: good for touch ups when I have my false lashes on - I don't normally need it, but I have it just in case! Otherwise, this would stay at home, with the tip stored downwards.

Lash Grip Adhesive: this stays in here all the time...for touch ups and you never know when you need a pair of lashes to glam up your look (it happened to me quite a few times).

Tweezers: need these to pick up my lenses out of the contact lenses case, it's also good for lashes but I like to use my fingers for better control.

Yelpstick Chapstick: I loveeeee the tangerine scent it has - it smells so yummy and wonderful! It's also pretty moisturizing so I like this a lot - except I don't know where to repurchase cause I got this for free....

Revlon Lip Products: (L-R) Superlustrous lip gloss in Life's A Peach, Superlustrous Lipstick in Primrose, Colorburst lipstick in Soft Nude and Peach. The lip gloss stays in the bag because it's good and versatile for any colour. The lipsticks tend to vary quite a bit, but I like to keep a pink, a nude and a coral colour in there so I have a variety :) And yes, I love Revlon lipsticks!
......

And that's all I have in here! I don't have a lot of interesting stuff in my bag so I hope this didn't bore you all! XD I got this tag from EatPaintSniffGlue and SleepandWater, so I tag all of you who read this and are interested in doing this tag.  Let me know what's in your bag! I'm quite curious and nosey hehehe :3

ps. if you manage to read all the way to here, I'd like to give you a pat on the back hahaha <3

Marry A Millionaire

There are three reasons as to why I love glitter polish so much...1) I love glitter & they are always the ones that captures my attention first; 2) It dries fast; and 3) mistakes are nearly invisible and super easy to fix with a quick layer over top! :D Marry A Millionaire by China Glaze is a gorgeous purple glitter polish. Aside from your regular micro sized circle shaped sparkles, it also contains small hair-like strips of turquoise and silver glitter that makes this polish stand out from the rest. Definitely something I don't see very often and I love it. 

On my nails, I only have one coat of Marry A Millionaire on top and 2 coats of OPI's Do You Lilac It? underneath.The finish of the glitter polish is rather rougher than most glitters I've tried - probably/mostly because the hair-like strips have a slight tendency to stick out from the surface. At first, I was only going to do an accent nail on my ring fingers...but then I wanted to see what it would be like if I had it on all my nails on one hand. Well, then comes the obvious...it was too pretty and blingy to pass up - so I did the other hand as well for a sense of completion hahaha. But now, I'm also forseeing how it would take forever to remove.......sigh~ =_=; What can I say....beauty is pain. 


Not sure why my camera is picking up the colour like it is more of a blue hue rather
than a true purple colour....please excuse the slight colour inaccuracy here and refer to the
picture below :P


OPI - Do You Lilac It?
This colour really reminds me of purple smarties lol...am I the only one???

I Blow Cash Real Fast


If people say that girls tend to get crazy during that "time of the month", then other than those monthly visits I'm one crazy girl every four months as well when the semester ends LOL. If I was paid to be a professional procrastinator and money blower I'd be a millionaire by now hahaha.......sigh~ how much I wish .____." Anyways, the other day I went nail polish shopping with my giggly girlies and I picked up two China Glaze glitter polishes at a wholesale store for $4.50 CDN each. Apart from the planned shopping, something unexpectedly came up and I ended up spending a ton in one day >_<" I woke up to a call from my sister and apparently she was hair modelling for a friend at the ABA Show in the Vancouver Convention Center. So aside from modelling she was shopping and picked up a quite few things for me. hehe


Marry a Millionaire - from the Eye Candy Collection
The glitters in this polish is quite different so it was love at first sight and the name....don't
we all shopaholics wish? hahaha
Liquid Crystal - from the Prismatic Collection

I asked my sister to help me get quite a few things from the show...originally I asked for a few more items but some of them were not available or sold out. Anywho, I'm still ecstatic about this haul because all these items were sold at extremely low and discounted prices! The HR Tourmaline Ceramic Hair Straightener is only $45 CDN (vs $100+ for most flat irons), the Deborah Lippmann polishes are only $10 each (vs $20 before tax) and the OPI polish is only $4 (vs $8-8.50) !!! AND, no tax! What a steal!!!

My very first flat iron!! I'm so excited to use this! Hopefully I'll also be able to curl my hair
with it as well so then I don't have to invest in curling iron and save some mula!



These are hair diamonds that you flat iron to your hair! They are suppose to last 4-5 washes.
I guess I'll be putting my flat iron to use :D hehehe

Across the Universe was something I looked most forward to buying, but unfortunately
they were out of stock so I only ended up with these polishes....

I wanted to get this one because it has gold shimmer in it which makes it super a unique brown!

Wooden Shoe Like to Know? - from the Spring/Summer 2012 Holland Collection

Stay tuned for upcoming nail of the day posts featuring these polishes! And if you think I'd be stopping here with this crazy splurge....nope. LOL. My dear sweetie pies, please look out for a Japanese makeup haul in a few weeks! :D hahaha.

ps. if you can't tell already....i have a thing for glitter polishes :P too bad they are a pain to take off -__-"

Boho Chic


Spring hasn't really arrived all that much in Vancouver, let alone summer...but whenever the word Bohemian pops up, I think of summer...sunny bronze, glowy and tanned makeup. I bought a cute headband a few weeks back from H&M and it really inspired me to do a Boho makeup look, so here I am with the tutorial using the infamous Naked Palette! These choices in colours can be easily found in drugstores so if you don't have the Naked Palette (....although I don't know why you wouldn't by now hahaha) you can recreate the look with other brands of eyeshadow colours. I hope you guys like this easy tutorial :D


Step 1: Apply a primer of your choice as usual and then using your finger - blend out a bronzy cream eyeshadow base over top (Urban Decay eyeshadows are fairly pigmented and stick on well even without a cream base...so if you want, you can skip this step - but this is just a habit of mine + putting my cream shadows into use haha).


Step 2: pack on a shimmery gold eyeshadow (half baked) all over the lids


Step 3: Taking a bronze coloured eyeshadow (smog), apply it to the outer corner and blend it inwards and down towards the upper lash line.


Step 4: Blend out the edges and add some more definition to the eyes by blending a matte brown shade (buck) in the crease


Step 5: using a smudger brush, take a dark brown eyeshadow (dark horse) and smoke it along the lash line


Step 6: by this time, you may have lost some of the gold eyeshadow (half baked) colour - so feel free to go back in and re-apply some more and also apply it to the inner corner of the eyes for the summery bronze look.


Step 7: using the smudger brush again, dip it into the gold eyeshadow (half baked) and smudge it along your lower lash line


Step 8: next, dip the smudger brush into the bronze eyeshadow (smog) and apply it to the outer one-third of the lower lash line - blending it in with the gold eyeshadow to create the sultry effect


Step 9: line your upper lash line with an eyeliner of your choice, line your waterline with a pencil liner, curl your lashes, apply mascara and then apply some natural looking cross-hair false lashes to complete the look :)



Step 10: put your cute headband on and you're finished! :D

Boho chic headbands are good for taming messy hair & keeping your bangs in place from the wind! :D
