Femme Boulevard: Vamp

It’s still end of July, and in some places, it’s still summer, and in others, it’s winter. We decided to do something different, and by that, we’re feeling vampy. The first thing I thought of was to pull out my darker lipsticks. How exciting :-) Then, I was debating whether to keep my eyes minimal, or to go all out dark. I haven’t been playing much with eye shadows for a few months now, and I took this opportunity to actually use some of my eye shadows! Dark eyes it is. I was going to use black only but….. it kinda got out of hand. Heh!

For the base, I wanted something flawless, so I used my newly purchased Lancome Blanc Miracle SPF50 liquid foundation, set with my well loved Lancome Maqui Blanc Miracle powder foundation. To avoid looking like a goth, I added some pink using Dior Rosy Glow blush.

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.

Tip: Blemish Free Face Post Travel

I remember complaining that I always had a zit here and there after travelling. I always wondered why and I thought it might be due to the fact that my face was extra dirty from all the sight seeing and exploring. I went to Melbourne for 2 weeks and came back with a few big zits on my chin and nose. I went to Singapore and came back with more blackheads than ever. So I decided to experiment with my cleansing routine. I recently came back from Hong Kong, and my face DID NOT break out!

 

I was armed with 3 main things.

1. Simplicity - I only had a cleanser, toner and moisturiser (and of course sunscreen for the day)

2. EXFOLIATE!

3. MASK

Review: Estee Lauder Cyber White HD Serum and Moisturizer

Oops, I just realised I haven’t posted for more than a week! I figured it’s high time I talked about Estee Lauder’s Cyber White HD. I was sent both the serum and moisturizer, and I first used it more than 2 months ago. Before this, I was on organic skincare where silicones and fragrances were close to zero. I didn’t really appreciate it until I used this. The first 2 things I noticed were how slippery and how strongly perfumed they are!
