UPDATES X AUGSEPTOCT FAVOURITES

Hey guys! It’s been so long since I’ve updated this blog because University is taking its toll on me (what’s new?), and I have been opting for a less formal/more convenient way of micro-blogging via “Dayre” app. Dayre is definitely filled with more ramblings and random complains, which is something I have been quite hesitant to do on this blog because I like to have all my posts planned out properly. Nonetheless, now you know I’m still alive, yeah?

University has been different in every ways I had expected it to be. That’s definitely a negative factor to me because I don’t like to be thrown off-guard. In addition, workload is so overwhelming, but that will hopefully cease after October ends, since we have finals for Nov.

In addition, I made it into 14’s dance team and got my dusty bones moving!! Woot! But now I have a problem, because I can’t do stunts for nuts. Sigh..

Finally met up with my OBC girls yesterday and I suddenly feel a lot better again. Friendship is a beautiful thing, ain’t it? I really wished we could have stayed on longer, but I’m sure we more gatherings coming up. For all the girls who are having a hard time in their own ways, i hope you gained strength from yesterday’s meetup, and know that OBC will always be here for ya! 🙂


Moving on, here’s a very late months-accumulated favourites post! (guilty)
I finally got about doing it after being reminded by Bri yesterday. I will make this a short and quick one!

Favourites!!

2. Cover Girl outlast stay fabulous 3 in 1 foundation in Classic ivory

Next up is the Cover Girl outlast stay fabulous 3 in 1 foundation in Classic ivory, which I’ve had for quite some time. As you can see from my previous post, I’m all about the Korean brands, so I use my cushion foundations more often. However, i saw this bottle sitting around in my cupboard and decided that i should stop spending money on foundations unless I finish up all that I have. I used to apply this with my hands and i didn’t really like the finish, but now that I have a beauty blender, this foundation applies flawless and natural on my face! I don’t even need to powder my face because this foundation sets pretty matte.

1. Nakedglory Watch

Got my petite watch from Nakedglory after feeling extra stressed out during a lecture. Whenever I’m stress, i shop on impulse, but this is definitely one of my satisfied impulse buys. It’s sooooo beautiful, I love the “diamonds” and blue reflective face of the watch. The only problem I have with it is that I don’t really know how to read this kind of watches, and the strap has started to look a little worn out. I will probably get a new strap soon.

3. L.A. Colors Cover Up Pro Concealer Stick

Picture

I bought this on impulse too, but it works super well for my undereyes! I got this in yellow because apparently its a shade to cover up the darkness under the eyes. This concealer stick blends sooooo well, and does not settle into creases. In hall, i try not to waste time putting on too much makeup, so usually I just slap this on with my cushion foundation and a lipstick, then I’m out of the door. I need to get to another watsons’ pop up store to stock up on this, it’s seriously holy grail worthy!

4. YSL Rouge Volupte in #33 & #13

Picture

Beautiful or what?! I got my hands on these babies finally, after thinking for very long (the price…). They smell like mango, and I love the #33 (left) more than #13 (right) because it goes on smoother. #13 tends to settle into fine lines, and the air is very bad in my hall room so I get chapped lips all the time which is not pretty under #13. But the shades are sooooo pretty and they stain the lips in a beautiful way! Definitely worth the splurge!

5. Etude House Color Pop Shiny Tint in #2 Sunny Pop

Got this during on of Etude house’s silent sales, at about $8, cheaper than online. The tint is super glossy but not sticky at all, and it’s crazily pigmented. I love the way it stains my lips and last the whole day, so low maintenance and awesome!

6. The Face Shop Lovely ME:EX Angel Skin Powder Pact

I’ve had this for a longgggg time too, but shelved it because i kept buying new compacts. I tried using the beauty blender on this, and it looks flawless and the finish is soft but not flat. It also helps preventing the base makeup from sinking into fine lines.
7. MISSHA The Style 4D Mascara

Picture

Bought this because I was sharing a cart with some friends from Koreadepart.com, and I saw this mascara going at about $4USD. Cheap or what? And it turns out to have received numerous awesome reviews online. The formula is awesome, natural but super lengthening, and does not smudge/flake/smear! It’s also waterproof, and the wand is square-shaped, which is damn cool and good at curling.

8. VDL Xpert Color Lip Cube Moisture SPF 10 #105 Pink Positive

I saw this recommended on one of the Get It Beauty 2014 episodes, and love the way the cubic shape allows precise cupid’s bow application. I don’t have a very prominent cupid’s bow, but this lipstick helps to accentuate it. It’s super moisturizing as well, as the color payoff is really good. Pretty long lasting just that it’s prone to transference. It’s also quite pricey too for a brand like VDL that’s not very famous in SG, at almost $30USD. Got this during the Koreadepart share cart.

That’s it for now, I will post again soon! Hopefully i get time to edit my braces pictures and do a post on it. (OPS!)

XOXO,
