Huge Colourpop Haul and Swatches!


So, I just made an order for Colourpop a few weeks ago and I am so not guilty about it. I mainly got products from the lip section because it is infamously known for their great quality and value. I mean $6 for something of that caliber. Damn!

The Colourpop has recently branched out too a bunch of other beauty ranges like powders, highlighters, eyeshadows and a ton of different collaborations with well-known beauty aficionados. But they are mainly known to have a wide range liquid lipsticks that range from Ultra matte lip, Ultra satin lip, Ultra glossy lip, Ultra metallic lip, Lippie Stix and many many more.

Since I had the chance to order some, I had to narrowed down the products that I wanted to what I actually needed(basically the shades that I can use to work everyday). I previously purchased Ultra Matte Lip in Beeper and the Ultra Satin Lip in Echo Park, and after some testing I thought that the formula of the Satin Lip was WAY more comfortable to wear than the Matte Lip.

DSC01198Let me start with the Lippie Stix shades… The Colourpop Lippie Stix in Boys Town Creme is a great rich creamy nude shade. This has got to be the most comfortable one of the bunch. Then the Colourpop Lippie Stix in Cami Matte is a matte dusty rose color. It isn’t too pink toned, which I like. While the Colourpop Lippie Stix in Hype Girl Matte is a bit to barbie-esque for me. I shall wait for a fancy dress party and try to pull of a Barbie make up look then!

For the liquid lipsticks, I was generally going for more of the Satin Lip spectrum. The Colourpop Ultra Satin Lip in Calypso, I found was a (sort of) dupe for the Colourpop Lippie Stix in Cami Matte. The Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip in Chi is a more brown nude but not too brown that of the Ultra Matte Lip in Beeper. It reminds me of the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Bow N Arrow, but a tad bit darker. While the Colourpop Ultra Satin Lip in Aquarius is a light pink-ish nude, not too barbie for my taste!

The cherry on top of all these has got to be the Colourpop Super Shock Highlighter in Lunch Money! It’s color pay-off is mind blowing! When you look at it with the packaging, it looks like a powder, but when you actually swatch it, it feels like a cream! It was love at first sight with this one! Watch out for some instagram looks with this new highlighter!

Christmas Party Makeup


Yes, its that time of the year where we actually have to make an effort to look presentable to the public and for the family photos. When the whole room is dressed up in tinsel, wreaths and festive colors, it is your obligation to join in as well! 


Especially in this time of the year where in we are hopping from party after party, you would want some thing that’ll last a whole night of singing and dancing. So it is important that you build a good longlasting and less greasy base. A new discovery of mine is the Tarte BB Tinted Treatment in Light, which was in my haul(link here!). I treat this as a primer because of its matte like feeling on application. I lend to use this on the areas of my face where I tend to get oily. And then buff a pea-sized amount of the Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Foundation in Ivory.

Of course, the perfect base would not be complete without a great functional concealer like the Maybelline Fit Me! Concealer in 10 Light and a setting powder like the RCMA Makeup No Color Powder. These two products have changed my life. (no exaggerating) 


Although a good base is (very) important, a little warmth around the cheek area would be a great addition too! The Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 hour Blush in Exposed is a muted pink blush(not too pink& not too dusty rose) and the Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder in Bronze-01 to add some shade to the cheeks, although this isn’t a contour shade because it has a warmer tone to it. At the moment, I am all about highlighting my cheekbones, and in the spirit of Christmas, highlight that beautiful face of yours with the Benefit High Beam. Then to top it all off, seal it with the L’Oreal Infallible Makeup Extender Pro-Spray.

I specifically choose the Zoeva Rose Golden Eyeshadow Palette for this look because of its festive colors. A good combination that I use when I fancy dress are the first three shades on the upper left. I did a comprehensive review on this palette a few weeks ago(link here!) Then to add some more vavavoom, the K-palette 24h Real Lasting Eyeliner WP 01  with an unassuming cat eye would look so great!



One of the few brow products that I know that are pretty pigmented is the It Cosmetics Prow Powder Perfector in Universal Taupe. I swear this will last the next day even after you clean your face after a night out. Its that amazing! (Comment below if you want a review on this!) 

Since a nude lip would look great with the eye look, using the Too Faced Perfect Lips Lipliner in Perfect Spice paired with the Colourpop Ultra Satin Lip in Echo Park. Both are really pigmented and long lasting.

What’s Inside My Travel Makeup Bag | September 2016


By the time you are reading this, I will have already landed in the land down under! I will be travelling around Australia until early October with my brother. But don’t fret!, the bi weekly posts will still be on schedule and I will be throwing in some Australia bits in between. I have a lot of interesting things in store for this blog.


Okay, I am going to be honest and say that I won’t be talking about each product in detail on this post because I don’t really have the time at the moment. I am currently in the state of packing and trying to remember what things to take with me(I have a lot of shit). Check out the links of ALL the products on this post below to get them yourself!

So here it goes, I didn’t want to bring such a big makeup bag for me on my trip because I will be out and about everyday on adventures in the Australian coasts and mountains(HI, mom!). But I still wanted a loot that gave me options… Because a girl always needs options! I kept in pretty low key on my makeup bases with only bringing light to medium coverage foundations and moisturizers, 3 shades of concealers(very important), 1 bronzer, 2 blushes and 1 facepowder. See, very low-key.

L’Oreal Nude Magnifique Cushion// Kiko Make Up Milano Soft Touch Blush in 108 // Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Diffused Light // Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Exposed // Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 10 Light // Benefit Erase Paste in 1 Fair // Tarte Amazonian Clay BB Tinted Moisturizer in Ivory // Too Faced Milk Chocolate Soleil in Light/Medium Bronze // L’Oreal True Match Concealer in N1-2-3



This part is where I get a little crazy! Except for the fact that I just brought a tiny eye shadow palette, 1 paintpot, 2 highlighters and 1 mascara. Although I went a little bit over board on the lips because….(no legitimate reason). But come to think of it, I have only 5 lipsticks and 3 lip pencils that are all different shades(I swear). Bringing two brow products are a must because we all have to those bad brow days(I am making that up). 

But in all seriousness, I just wanted to take products along with me that I will actually make use of on my trip. A kit that would give various basic bitch makeup looks for me to try everyday.
