BELOW shows the recent lipstick I have bought. I have been craving for orange lips lately. So I got one from MAC and one from Giorgio Armani. Also, I have bought a dark plum colour at MAC which I absolutely adore! The colours are shown below. (ALSO, sorry for the flaky lips)
Left to right : ROUGE d’ARMANI 405 ; MAC MORANGE ; MAC HANG-UP
The ROUGE d’ARMANI 405 has little tint of glitter and gives good shine. It’s also very long lasting. However, this colour is not as orangey as the MAC MORANGE. It has a bit more red to it. But if you looking for a sharp colour lipstick for this summer. I highly recommend this shade.
The MAC Hang-Up is the dark plum colour I got. I love the colour but find it not as solid as I would prefer. The formula is creamy and a bit watery, so thats why I am guessing the colour seems to be a bit transparent. I definitely needed to re-apply for a more penetrated shade.
The MAC MORANGE is a more static orange shade. The colour is very outstanding and the thick creaming texture made the colour stands out even more. There is actually less shine to this shade. Also, I find the colour not as vivid if I did not apply a peach colour base. So it’s best to have a base of some sort to make the colour stand out more. This is also a very gooood colour for the summertime. It goes well with a simple white tee + jeans shorts.
For all these vivid shades, it’s best to keep your eyes simple with nude eyeshadows (some highlighting) or simple winged eyeliner. Just a recommendation from me.

I have been away since forever because I was very caught up with school. I even had to quit my job because I was too busy. Anyways, I will be back with some reviews soon. Since I have been trying out some new products lately (both skin care and makeup).
PS. on the side note, I have decided to grow my hair. Well I don’t mean to grow it very long, maybe just a bob.

As promised, I will do a review on the Fresh Light Sugar Ash Foam Hairdye.
Below is my hair before the colouring. I recently took out my extension and cut it short again. You can see the roots are black and the bottom part has a little bit of black showing. So I thought, what a perfect time to try out the new hair dye kit I bought.
So before using this foam hairdye from fresh light, I actually went on to bleach my hair little bit with the Gatsby bleaching kit. Because I wanted the colour to show more, I decided that I needed lighter base on my hair.
The picture below shows the post-application of the foam formula.
These pictures show the result. I am not too satisfied with the result. Because although I’ve bleached my hair to a dark blonde hair, the result is still darker than I thought. However, what I like about this is my hair is very ashy in real life especially under the sun.
With artificial fluorescent lighting
with regular white lightbulb
With a bit of sunlight
After thought: THIS HAIR DYE DRIPS like crazzzzzzy~ I had to shorten the process to 15 minutes because it was dripping all over my towel and my neck! OMGOSH… Although the colour choices are nice (cuz of my love for ashy hair), I would definitely not use this again. I actually found the cream formula much better, at least it doesn’t drip like this one. BUT I do have to state the fact that cuz my hair is short, it actually promotes the dripping to happen. Maybe if you have long hair and then wrap it with plastic wrap, it won’t drip as much. But overall, I would only give it a 2/5 for the crazy dripping and the inconsistent result to the hair colour chart shown on its packaging / official website.

Honestly, I am digging this hair colour: Turquoise blue with purple highlights. But can I pull off a hair colour like this? Probably, however, thats not the major point. The thing is, I am no celebrity and if I carry such hair when I go out, I will for sure grab a lot of
unwanted attention. It would be annoying to have all eyes on me and I don’t like that honestly. I guess thats the only fun part of being a celebrity because you can change your hair to any colour you want and not worrying about looking like a freak.
So instead of going blue, I bought a hairdye to go GREY… but I won’t be using it until I take out my extensions next month. By then, I will post a review on the results =D

Sarah Burton, who designed these breathe-taking dresses, claimed she was thinking of “strong, noble and romantically powerful.”
Figured that Alexander McQueen was a genius for the fashion industry, Sarah Burton has did an excellent job in taking over Alexander’s line. They share the very similar style: edgy and powerful. These dresses are so nice that I want to owe every single one of them. I could possibly wear one of these for my future wedding (in which I do not know when). But Alexander McQueen collections never disappoints.

Yes, I could have been soo outdated with this post (but hey, I don’t go to uniqlo that often). Anyways, I was surfing around in uniqlo on a chillaxing friday afternoon. Finally no classes TONIGHT! Then, I spotted some tees with “BIGBANG SHOW” on it. I thought they have something to do with the real big bang theory. But as I walked closer, there was a picture of bigbang hanging beside the rows of tees! WOOHOO~ I then did a little dance and screamed a little. LOL~ I guess I got too carried away for a sec coz of the sudden appearance of BigBang. I have recently became very fond of Daesung and JiYong. (SMell! let’s smell!) But I was dragged away after because I was late for dinner reservation. SO this is the little surprise I got today.
When I went today, there was only 5 tee styles left, and only the grey hoodie is left. The black ones are gone already. I should have got one at least, but they are for men… ROAR~
