Product Empties was not meant to be a monthly post. But since I really don’t have the habit to keep empty product packaging in my bathroom any longer than they need to, it’s hard to keep in mind to collect them for my Empties post. I don’t use as much products as I used to years ago. Moving to Europe has changed me in so … Continue reading Product Empties July 2017
My skin has never been perfectly flawless, as in clear from any blemishes or hyperpigmentations, but it has been relatively clear from major break-outs for the past few months. I still get one small pimple (maximum two) on my chin or along my jawline during my period but it’s nothing that won’t go away within a week. So when I started having pimples about two … Continue reading My skin is acting up again!
Just got back from a 6-day trip to Hamburg, a beautiful and thriving port city in nothern Germany. A quick summary of what I thought of the city; I absolutely love Hamburg! The city is often compared to the country’s capital, another nothern German city, Berlin. I’d say both are quite similar in vibes but differs when it comes to infrastructure and urban development. I … Continue reading Quick Hamburg trip update & a day at the beach 🙂
After giving my hair a rest and giving them loads of TLC for about a week, I decided to give the rose gold hair another go. I lightened my hair using Garnier Nutrisse Creme (100 Summer Blond Extra Light) in an attempt to remove the orange colour from my hair after that failed #pinkhair try last week. I discovered Directions hair dye after days of … Continue reading Summer Hair: Second Try
Expectation (what we’re sold on) VS Reality (results may vary) My experience using L’Oreal Colorista Washout #pinkhair The main selling point of L’Oreal Colorista Washout for me is that it’s a semi-permanent dye that’ll fade out after a few washes and it’s easy to use. You supposedly just squeeze out the product from the tube and apply it on your hair to create your desired … Continue reading Project Summer Hair Part 3 : Colouring my hair pink!
I used to equate bleaching with fried hair. The first time I had my hair bleached was last year for some highlights and it was done by a professional. Despite watching countless tutorials by professionals and amateurs in Youtube and knowing that the entire process isn’t that complicated, I never have the courage to do it myself. Of course I can just buy all the … Continue reading Project Summer Hair Part 2: At-home hair bleaching
So… now that we have full hot-ish, sunny days for almost one week in a row, I am convinced that summer is almost officially here. Finally. I’ve been thinking about having rose gold hair for almost a year now. But life often gets in the way and I have to postpone doing my hair. As stupid as it may sound, I was so desperate to … Continue reading Project Summer Hair Part 1: Hair Inspiration
The last Empties post I did was for the period of 6 months (September 2016-February 2017). There aren’t many pictures of the products I used up in this Empties because I threw some of them out during our process of moving back to Germany in the last few weeks of March. I do, however, keep a list of the products I used up and my … Continue reading Product Empties June 2017
Complexion: Base: Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24hr (03) mixed with Bourjois Helathy Mix Serum Foundation (51 Light Vanilla) *Apart from being too dark for my skin tone right now, the Lancome Teint Idole foundation is a tad too drying and matte on me. I mixed in one small pump of Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum foundation to three small pumps of Lancome Teint Idole. I usually … Continue reading Makeup Monday: Roses & red lips
RL de Young is the baby sister brand of Rival de Loop and are both brands from Rossmann, one of the largest drugstore chains in Germany. Up until a few weeks ago, I was not aware of the existence of these brands because I rarely shop in Rossmann (I’m a DM girl coz they carry NYX!!!). I’m currently in the market for a drugstore highlighter … Continue reading RL de Young Baked Highlighter 01 Moon Dust
