L'Oreal favourites

Brand favourites – L’Oreal

L’Oreal is one of the biggest beauty companies in the world, with countless brands under their belt, from high-end, to drugstore, to pharmacy brands, to niche. Plus, of course, their own eponymous brand, the one you see everywhere, in every drugstore, in every country. Pulling technology from all their other brands, there’re a lot of absolutely stellar products, but there’re two lines that are generally good, whatever product you try: Base products and mascaras. Let’s have a look at my favourites, shall we?READ MORE

Molly Cosmetics' Silisponge used with Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation, Charlote Tilburry Light Wonder, and IT Cosmetics CC.

A Quick Silisponge Review

Have you tried the silisponge? I recently got mine from Molly Cosmetics and here’s my quick silisponge review.
In case you haven’t heard about it, the silisponge is this new beauty tool craze that works for putting foundation on your face. It’s not porous, hence you’re supposedly only need fewer products. It’s been on a craze for a while, partially because of the viral YouTube video of Jeffrey Star (you can watch it here).

Everything I learned when I dyed my hair purple

Ten things I learned when I dyed my hair purple

About one year ago I dyed my hair purple for the first time. That was quite an experience, first requiring bleaching parts of my natural brown hair with some blonde, washed out highlights. Then my wonderful hairdresser dyed various strands with two different kinds of purple, creating an ombre effect towards the ends. Flash forward to today, and my hairstyle has become a bit brighter, a bit more ombre, and I’ve even touched up my colour a few times myself. Here’s what I learned in this year of purple hair.READ MORE

Armani liquid lipstick review

Armani Lip Magnet review – liquid matte lipsticks gone high-end

The new year is barely ten days old, and I’m already breaking the rules I set for myself in my bucket list for 2017. This exact rule I’m speaking about is steering clear of the wishy-washy high-end incorporations of matte liquid lipsticks, always watered down versions of the real thing. But then, I stood in front of the Armani counter, saw the new(ish) Lip Magnets and curiosity got the better of me.READ MORE

best beauty products of 2016

The best and worst of 2016

While we all very likely will agree that 2016 was a pretty horrible year generally, I look at this year’s beauty experiences and guys, I don’t know. 2016 had some pretty fantastic products. Either new ones, or ones that weren’t new but new to me. There also were some pretty crap ones, too. Let’s have a look at the best beauty products of 2016, some un-favourites and the ones that were solidly meh.READ MORE

Holiday 2016 makeup collections

Holiday 2016 makeup collections: The lazy girl’s round-up

Not gonna lie, but I was feeling a lot of dread wading into the realm of 2016’s holiday makeup collections. Would they be good? Exciting? Swoonworthy, even? I was afraid that I could already tell how the collections would look like without even knowing about them – like, Dior: classic holiday red and gold. YSL – something opulent and smokey. Armani? Nudish understatement. Isn’t beauty ennui just THE WORST? But let us go through this together – I’ll point out for you what is totally worth getting, and what is not. READ MORE

twindly's Mascara + Primer Comparison

Mascaras and Primers for Asian Lashes

I have the typical Asian lashes: on the thinner side, not too long, and definitely not full. I’m still on the lookout for the best mascaras and primers for Asian lashes.  Currently I happen to have five opened bottles of mascaras and two bottles of lashes primers (which is rare!). So I figured, let’s do a side by side comparison post and review!

August beauty favourites

August beauty favourites – makeup and skincare!

August. Summer is nearly over (or not, depending where you are), it’s my birthday month (and oh how many birthdays I’ve spent with miserable weather as a child), and these are all reasons only to surround myself with things that make me happy. The scent of oranges is one of those things, incidentally, and what colour could be more fitting for summer favourites than happy, bright orange?!READ MORE
