The Slick Traveller – IPSA Face Color Designing Palette

Hello beautiful strangers, today I’m sharing with you one of my favourite face palettes. The IPSA face colour designing palette is such a beauty and possibly the slickest travelling companion ever!

The colour designing face palette was ranked the #1 cheek product for the first half of 2014 on the Japanese beauty site, and it is currently still reigning as numero uno. This ultra slick compact contains the four essentials: Blush, Highlight, Shading and Finishing powder. It includes a full size mirror and a dual-ended brush. The brush is surprisingly nice, the bristles are so soft and the longer side is perfect for swiping on blush or bronzer and the shorter denser side is great for more controlled application. This palette contains everything you need for accentuating the natural contours of your face.

Review & Swatches: Tanya Burr Lip glosses

Wouldn't it be the life if we could just Picnic in the Park on a ChicExotic Island while we Smile, Dream, Sparkle all day every day? As idyllic as that sounds, sadly we all have something called responsibilities so we’ll just have to make do by indulging in lip glosses. If you haven’t guessed already, today we’re talking about some of my favourite lip glosses– the Tanya Burr lip gloss line.

Review + Swatches: Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal & Eye Shadow Sticks

I’m not much of an eye makeup kind of girl but these have got to be some of my favourite eye products ever! 
The Rimmel Scandaleyes are the best eye liners I've ever tried. Theyre so easy to use and dont drag at all and once applied, they do not budge. And not to mention how extremely budget friendly they are. The same goes for the eye shadow sticks, so creamy yet so long lasting!

Top-bottom: Eye shadow sticks in Bulletproof Beige, Bootleg Brown, Bad Girl Bronze. Kohl liners in Bronze, Nude, Black

Braziliant #nailgame

Hello beautiful strangers!

Can you believe it's the semi-finals of the FIFA World Cup already? This month has gone by way too fast. Anyway, it's Brazil vs. Germany tonight so I thought it would be fitting to paint my nails with Essie Braziliant. 

Braziliant is a bright hot orange with white shimmer. The polish has good opacity and is easy to work with. On my computer screen it looks more orange, but in real life I feel that it's even more intense with a strong coral hue. Essie polishes retail for $70hkd and are available in store and online here and here

The name captures it perfectly, this colour really is the epitome of summer in Brazil - if this nail polish doesn't make you feel as glam as Giselle then I don't know what will... 

Ball games I might suck at, but at least my #nailgame is en point, oui?
