Bobbi Brown Liquid Liner Review & Swatch

DSC01443

The Bobbi Brown brand embraces natural beauty and owning your skin. There products range in all types of shades and finishes to perfectly fit all kind of women. This is what I love about this brand, its inclusivity.


This gel liner is for your everyday working girl. I think that this set would definitely help a makeup newbie know the technique in applying eyeliner. The liner pots come in a MINI pack, which I think is a better size than the standard because I am pretty sure that it ill dry up before I can even use up half of it!

The pots come in a Sepia and black shade. I personally like using the Sepia shade because it matches my skin better personally. 

I wouldn’t say that this is the longest lasting gel liner though. I definitely don’t recommend you to rub your eyes when wearing this, unless you want to look like a raccoon. But the finish it gives is very natural. I have yet to try this at the gym but I am too scared to, tbh.

The application brush is ALRIGHT. Its not the best, but it does the job. I wish I had the time(and money) to buy a nice angled brush to apply it with but I guess this will have to do.

Eyewear Made Easy by OTTICA

DSC01943

I need to have three major components in my life that keep me afloat. These three are sleep, food and my eyeglasses. I have mentioned before that I have been wearing eyeglasses every since I was about 5 years old due to stigmatism and what not. So you can just imagine how many specs I have ruined, grew out of and just fell out of love with in the past 18 years(long time).

When OTTICA first reached out to me and offered a generous deal. I was ecstatic! I am still not used to people giving me free things(I don’t think I ever will). OTTICA is an online eyewear company that caters to literally every need an eyeglass wearer needs, from A to Z. But i’ll get to that in a bit.

They carry household brands that are loved by many like Ray Ban, Tory Burch, Michael Kors, Versace, to name a few. When ordering a pair, you can get them with no prescription, distance (single vision), reading (single vision), progressives (smooth transitions for all distances; I have this for my everyday eyewear) and bifocals (reading and distance). See I told you they do everything. But wait, there is more.

So when it came to what I wanted to get, I was thinking of getting a pair of specs but wasn’t too sure. I wanted something classic, a piece that will grow old with me(don’t want to grow old though), versatile, not too dressy and of course, the basic biatch I am, I wanted it to be casual. So after much thought and convincing, I decided to get a pair of Ray Ban Clubmasters in Tortoise. Here are the rest of the Ray Bans that they carry, link here!

When you order from OTTICA, they give you options for your decided thickness of your lenses. They have three options. They come in thin air (+2.00–2.00), advanced thin (25% lighter than normal lenses) and ultra thin (35% lighter than normal lenses).

At OTTICA, when you order a pair of sunglasses, you can upgrade your lenses to tinted shades (they come in Gray, Brown and Green; comes with purchase), polarized lenses (reduces glare) and Mirrored (comes in 5 shades; Red, Blue, Gold, Green and Silver).

When I placed my order, I was told that my package will come in 10-14 business days, which is about 3 weeks. I didn’t really mind since I knew that it was coming from overseas. I then got a text from a courier that it was arriving on June 6. I even prepared the 5% tax they usually ask for upon international delivery. But I guess that the tax fee came with the delivery charge, which was $25USD.

To my surprise, it arrived on a Thursday, not even a week since I ordered it. Now that’s service!

Did I mention that every purchase comes with a 365 day warranty or your money back! With free shipping and returns! OTTICA literally does all the stops!

CoLab Vs Dove Dry Shampoo Review

DSC01570

In the past year, I have been gravitating more and more to dry shampoo. I once thought it was annoying, itchy and unhygienic to use it since it prolongs the wear of your hair. But when I started really using it, I started to like it a bit more, especially after all sweaty when you need that fresh hair smell after the gym.


From what I can remember, Dove Dry Shampoo was the very first dry shampoo brand that I have tried. I didn’t find it all to comfort to wear at first, but I guess it grew on me. The verdict on the Dove Dry Shampoo is that I noticed that upon spray this on to my roots the product gave white streaks on my hair. This doesn’t bother THAT much because I have brown hair but this might be a problem for dark haired people.

I don’t think that there is any scent to it. It just smells fresh like soap or what. But all in all, its pretty good for the median price you pay, but could still be better I think!

This is something that I have just tried recently(I’m on my second bottle already), the COLAB Dry Shampoo in New York (and available in other scents) is brand by Ruth Crilly(amodelrecommends). What I really like about this brand of dry shampoo is that they offer a few scents to choose from depending on what is your favorite scent. Although I noticed that the tin empties faster, I think that it still makes up for it. But I feel that upon spraying this on to your hair, everything is find but I noticed that my hair still goes back to becoming oily after a few hours. 

So if you were to buy a dry shampoo, which brand will give you a bang for your buck? Can you guess it?

If you aren’t completely sold on the whole dry shampoo idea, you might find this helpful infographic by Reviews.com very convincing! Link HERE! Thanks Ilona! xx
