Femme Boulevard Goes On Vacation

This month, we decided to show you vacation looks. What makeup would I wear during a vacation? I just came back from Hong Kong recently and it was really hot there. So, I shall share with you REALISTICALLY what I did. For realz. I was out and about the whole time, mostly in the sun, hence there was bound to be sweat and grime. I was hardly in air conditioned places, and it is IMPOSSIBLE for makeup NOT to melt in 33 Celcius hot and humid weather. Even at night, we’d be walking so much, it’s hard not to sweat. So, for that type of vacation, my staples are a hat, sunscreen, sunnies and wet wipes.

Too Many Random Thoughts

Are you always logical and have your head sitting securely on your shoulders? Are you the type of person who is always curious and would do silly things “just because”? Do you over analyze? Or do you let go of things easily? I’m all the above, depending on situation. So what am I? LOL! My sinus was very unkind to me the last 2 nights and when there’s no sleep, my mind starts to do very weird things.

Review: My Current Skincare With Antipodes

You must have read about Antipodes on this blog. I first discovered it about 2 years ago, and I have been slowly trying their products. I was looking for a more affordable eye cream and this one fits the bill. Then, there was some major promotion on cleansers and toners (60% off with purchase) so I grabbed that too. Oh, and I heard avocado is a good ingredient in creams, and I got a night cream. I know, it was one after another. I bought all these when I first knew I was pregnant. I wanted to switch to something more organic for no specific reason. I don’t believe skincare must be different during pregnancy if there are no changes to your skin. My skin did become more sensitive, hence, the switch. I noticed my skin has become drier lately, so I know I’ll be changing my routine again. So, I believe skincare should only be changed according to your skin condition, not because whether or not you’re pregnant. So here, I’ll be doing brief reviews on each product which I’ve been using for the past 4 to 5 months.

Review: Dior Addict Fluid Sticks in Mirage and Pandore

Dior Addict Fluid Sticks are lip hybrids. There have been so many lip hybrids lately, it’s getting a little boring. Truth be told, I received these a few months ago, even before I got pregnant, so it’s definitely a delayed review. I have my reasons for it though. The main one is no secret, with being sick and all, and another is because I don’t know how I feel about them. I’m sure by now, you’ve read a lot about them, that there is no wax in the ingredients, and all sorts of raves. Admittedly, I was very excited when I first got them. I tried them and tried them again but still couldn’t form a solid opinion.

Sunday Stash Shopping #25: Liquid Liner

The return of the liquid liner. If you read my previous posts, you’d know I’ve been skipping liners, but hey! Not only have I been using eye liners, I’ve been using liquid liners! That only means one thing: I’m not gagging and vomiting anymore. Yay! Well, I’d still feel nauseated sometimes, but not as bad as having to run to the washroom. Now, say it with me: WOOHOO!!!

I’m still keeping everything simple, and it’s a look without any eye colour. Just an eye liner and a mascara. Of course, this look can be done using a pencil liner, but the line won’t be as crisp. Gel liners are a great substitute if you find it easier working with a brush, but I’ve wanted to use up my one and only liquid liner – the Diorshow Art Pen which I reviewed before. Sad thing it isn’t waterproof because it’d be perfect otherwise. I think I’ll be searching for a more affordable liquid liner after this, so any recs appreciated.
