Be A Bombshell Lip Crayon in Hot Damn

0
COM


I was thinking about buying a red lipstick shade. Lucky for me, this came with my Ipsy November 2013 Glam Bag.


Be A Bombshell Lip Crayon in Hot Damn is a bright red shade. 


The lip crayon has a smooth texture. The shade is a bright matte red. 


For this photo, I build the color byusing a lot of it to make my lips really red for my swatch photo. But, as what they said on their website, you can either go bold or sheer with this lip crayon. Apply a lot to go bold or apply only on your lower lip and blot lips together for a sheer effect.

The lip crayon is retractable so no need to sharpen it.

Wet n Wild Mega Last Lip Color in Think Pink

0
COM


I really want a baby pink lipstick shade so I tried the pink shade of Nicki Minaj at MAC and it didn't suit me. I decided to buy this cheap Wet n Wild one just to test it out at home and see if the color would suit me. 



Wet n Wild Mega Last Lip Color leaves a matte creamy finish. It can be drying on the lips so I always apply a lot of lip balm before applying this lipstick. 

Think Pink 901B is a baby pink shade.


Surprisingly, this shade suits me. I was so happy that this shade of baby pink doesn't look weird on me. 


The lasting power of this lipstick isn't good, even though it is a "mega last lipstick". What can you expect for something so cheap. So I have to keep reapplying.

Olay Foaming Face Wash

COM

I have used Olay Foaming Face Wash in the past. It's been a really long time since I have used it that I missed the scent of it and also the soft feeling it leaves my skin after cleansing. I thought they discontinued it because I was looking for the old white bottle with the black pump on the shelf of the store I'm at. That's how it is when you shop without reading the label. Anyway, when I finally started reading the labels of each cleanser, I found this again.

This is my Halloween nails. I watched some tutorials on Youtube and decided to give it a try. It was fun creating this nail art... A bit messy, but fun.

Last year, my sister went to Singapore and asked me what I want. I told her to buy me a Rachel K CC Cream because it's a Singapore brand.

When she got home, I was so excited to get it, then I saw the shade... Sunkissed. At that time, my complexion was too pale for the Sunkissed shade, so I just kept it instead.

This is a really cheap and extra long eyeliner and/or brow pencil. I got this to try to use it on my eyes. 

As an eyeliner, I really have a hard time lining my eyes with this because it doesn't glide on smoothly. Even though it's hard to draw a line with this, I like that when I actually get to perfectly line my eyes, the eyeliner stays put.
