Illamasqua Beguile Pigment - Review

Ello lovelies!
Beguile is one the products I've had my eye on for what seems like forever! I first clapped eyes on it in one of Louise from Sprinkle of Glitters videos and instantly fell in love. It has taken me a good while to take the plunge and pick it as its normally priced at £16.50 and i didn't need it, but i sure as hell wanted it! Illamasqua have had a couple of sales recently and i picked this beauty up for around the £8 mark, making it much more affordable.

Illamasqua describe it as a shimmering white pearl, but i think it is much, much more complex than that. It is simply stunning. Its a silvery white base with gorgeous micro glitter that to my eye turns pink and green in the light. It is beautiful. So far, I've been pairing it with simple looks, mainly winged eyeliner and a bright lip. But i think it could work well in a whole host of different looks. It find its a little fiddly to apply dry, so i tend to do my eyes before my face to avoid pesky fallout issues. But it also works great wet for a more intense look.

If you're a shimmer or glitter fan, this is going to be right up your street and i really recommend checking this little stunner out. I'm looking forward to seeing how it works over a black base, since just in the lid it shows up so wonderfully.

Above are dry and wet swatches.

My swatches really don't do it justice. I've not learnt the knack to photographing glitter just yet.

Do you love it? I sure do!

You can find this online here and in Illamasqua stores. Its priced at £16.50 but Illamasqua do offer pro discount and often have sales, so keep your eye out!

What are your favourite Illamasqua products?


Review: Nuxe Rose Miscellar Cleansing Water

I enjoy doing product reviews, especially so for makeup removers. Although lately I haven't been applying makeup, but whenever I do, it is in my utmost importance to ensure I remove every single bit of it!

This Nuxe Rose Miscellar Cleansing Water was one of the goodies that I received from one of my Bellabox, which I have stopped subscribing to. 

When you twist open the cap, you will be welcomed with a soap-like fragrance, with a whiff of rose. The scent of rose is not very strong, so for those who dislike rose scents, you might be able to handle this. 

The light rose scent reminds me of the Crabtree & Evelyn Rose Water Handcream, but of a milder tone. 

Check out the list of ingredients in this product here:

As always, my review is coupled with a "test" to see how many swipes or wipes do I need to get rid of all this "paint". 

I have done this review immediately after I did one of my spring looks, but I totally forgotten about it. That explains the delay =) 

I have put on a non-waterproof eyeliner, and non-waterproof mascara. Not a very good test in fact, but after weeks of usage, I will share whether it works for waterproof eye products or not shortly!

The Nuxe Rose Miscellar Cleansing Water has a yellow tint to it. Pour a generous amount, enough to cover your eyelid, unto a cotton pad.

Berry Season has officially started!

Berry Me by GOSH is a lush shade that definitely has a fitting name.  The colour is a combination of strawberries, raspberries, with a slight hint of blueberries. 
Seen here are 2 coats of this Special Edition GOSH polish.

My personal rating for Berry Me (on a scale from 1 - 10, the higher the #, the better the rating):

a) Coats:                                It took two coats for opacity   = 9
b) Thickness of Polish:         Not too thick at all, evened out nicely  = 9
c)  Ease of Application:        Brush allowed for super easy application = 10
d)  Appeal Factor:                 Rich shade, can be worn year-round  = 10

Added some super shine and durability to this manicure by finishing off with
ASK Cosmetics' Top Coat.

If you are a user of TIPS Nail Conditioner and you're wondering how to apply TIPS with polished nails here are our "tips" for you:
1.  Remove ALL nail polish with our Revival Nail Polish Remover.  If you are wearing thick polish and/or several layers, use a 2nd cotton pag to ensure EVERYTHING is removed.
2.  Wash your hands with soap and water.
3.  Wait at least one hour before applying fresh nail polish.
4.  First apply a clear base coat.
5.  Then apply the desired nail polish.
6.  Wait 24 hours for the polish to dry completely.
7.  Apply TIPS Nail Conditioner once or twice daily around the cuticles and skin surrounding the nail as well as under the free edges of your natural nail.

Be sure to follow me for more swatches, nail care advice, reviews, contests and more:

Thanks for stopping by today.  Enjoy the rest of your day!

Featured Review: Korean Makeup with Navy Eyeliner MicaBeauty Cosmetics

Disclaimer: These products were given to me to do a review on. I do not get paid or any commission if you purchase any of these products quoting my blog for the 20% discount. As always, my honest comments for products, because that's what I truly believe in. 


If you missed my first post, I was actually invited to try out MicaBeauty cosmetics. And I had a demonstration of their makeup products as well, which you can see them here~.
After using these products for some time, I feel like I am able to tell you how these products fare. This is going to be a tutorial along with an embedded review, because what's a review without demonstration huh.

Today's featured look is the Korean Style Makeup, but with a twist. Navy eyeliner to create a pop of colour on your lids. Along with the tutorial, I will also conduct a "test" on its durability.

And check out the beautiful lip colours. Want to know what are they???

Shall we begin?

Food Review: Sheng Kee Dessert

Desserts! I love eating desserts, today I am going to share the Hong Kong dessert from Sheng Kee Desserts store.

They had a 3 for 2 dessert promotion, so the 2 of us ordered 3 desserts to share.

1. Popular Mango Sago with Pomelo 
This is a very rich and sweet dessert. But the fresh pomelo will help to keep the mango sweetness at bay. 

Rate: 3/5


2. Mango Pudding
This mango pudding is not sweet, however the subtle mango pieces in the pudding gives it some extra flavour. I really love this pudding, because it isn't too rich or sweet. 

Rate: 3.5/5


3. Mango, Grass Jelly with Pearl Jelly
This had got to be my favourite! This has the lightest consistency, and a tinge of sourness. Although I would prefer my grass jelly to be in blocks instead of stripes.

Rate: 4/5

Social Star Awards

I attended the Social Star Awards the other day! If you were there, I'm sure you know how epic the performance was. :D

Really honoured to be invited by Starcount, along with Ridhwan and Jian Hao to walk the Red carpet. Not fake one ok hahaha. I was soooo nervous when we were reaching the crowd but sooo happy after we stepped out of the car because the crowd was just...fantastic!! 
Thanks for cheering, thanks for screaming my name, I was blinded and deafened by the awesomeness of everything but I heard my name. :') 

Anyway, here's my Red carpet get-up!! 

I'm so glad I found a dress of my size!!!! T _ T PRAISE THE LORD.

And courtesy to Juicy Couture's Fitting room hahahaha. Made everything look ten times more princessy. 

My really nice hair by my stylist, Steve, from Salon Vim! Thank you thank you!!!

Our ride to the red carpet! ^_^

I stole Jian Hao's picture 'cause I didn't take any HAHA thank you!

Aaaaand guess who is the first star we met after walking the red carpet?!?!


He's so friendly!!! :DDD

Also met Qiuqiu, Adam and BT! :D 

iPhone 5's camera is still as shitty under orange light wtf. I didn't bring my camera 'cause my purse is way too tiny to fit anything. :(

Also with Munah & Hirzi + BT with is wine at the back HAHAHA.

In the theatre! I'm sitting with Munah, Hirzi and Jian hao thanks to Ridhwan. T _ T I'm very touched, give me a moment of silence please, I need to cry.


Idk why Starcount gave me a ticket two rows behind everyone else, so I got to sit alone throughout the show. 
So being the very nice Ridhwan, he offered to switch seats with me so I don't have to be alone. :'( THANK YOU RIDHWAN. ♥


She can wear ANYTHING at all omg. Look at her. Just look at her. T _ T
Jeremy's a fantastic host btw!! 

First up, Aerosmith!!!!!! :D 

Next was Carly Rae Jepsen!

And then LMFAO.

And also a really short part by Chester and Andrew!

Missed out some parts 'cause I was out haha. And I totally don't remember the sequence of the show. I like the Harlem Shake's part 'cause I saw my big face on the screen hahahahaha! 

Look who's behind us! xD 

Pewdiepie and his cutiepie~

Anyway, my personal favourite was PSY's performance! Everyone was getting tired near the end of the show but he managed to hype things up and everyone totally went cray with him. His performance was amazing.

After the concert, we went for the after party at skypark. (and I'm honestly not a party person so I left early with hao) 

Anyway, I heard from so many people that "Your trip to Singapore is incomplete if you don't visit this infinity pool at MBS." O_O As a local, I've never been to the infinity pool before lol.

So this is my very first time. I'll go and swim there someday!!!!! Looks really cool.

Met a lot of YouTube stars there! Super starstruck everywhere I go haha.
Though I didn't get to meet Ryan (which is the whole reason why I'm there for lol.), I guess this is enough to compensate haha.
