This is the 3rd HOLIDAY makeup tutorial I created for 2013. Just a classic Winged Eyeliner look with Red Ombre Lips. Ombre Lips are super in trend this year, and red lips are the holiday MUST HAVE. So I sorta put them together and created this. I hope you guys enjoy this quick (and hopefully easy as well with the tape techniques for the eyeliner) tutorial...

Easy Christmas Look using ALL DRUGSTORE Products ♡ HOLIDAY Makeup Tutorial #2

This is the 2nd HOLIDAY makeup tutorial I created for 2013. Since most of holiday makeup look are really glamourous and slightly more on the advanced level, I thought it would be great to create something easier to do for beginners. 
This champaign shimmery eye look with red lips has all neutral colors on eyes and these colors don't require a dramatic winged eyeliner to go with them. The entire eye looks is easy to recreate, all the colors are forgivable even if you haven't nailed the technique of blending eyeshadows. 
You can swatch red lips to nudes or pinks if you don't feel comfortable to wear it even though I would highly recommend to try it, you'll love it after a wearing it for a day! :)

More Holiday looks are on the way, stay tuned and stay warm (for those in northern hemisphere) ♥

theBalm Balm Voyage Palette Review & Swatches

theBalm Balm Voyage Palette
First time I saw this Balm Voyage Palette is Emily Noel's review video on YouTube. I've always loved theBalm's packaging and I own some of their products: Bahama Mama Bronzer, Instain Blush in Toile, Down Boy Blush and Time Balm Primer. I absolutely love them these products both quality wise and packaging! I hadn't tried theBalm's eyeshadow before this purchase because I was waiting for them to have a larger palette than their Shady Lady Collection (Shady Lady only has 9 eyeshadow shades, while Balm Voyage has 16 eyeshadows and 3 lip colors). I was waiting to get this palette and as soon as makeup.co.nz got these in store I placed my order and was so excited...

Jordana Twist & Shine Moisturizing Balm Stain Review & Swatches

First time when I saw these had a "NEW" sign on Cherry Culture, my first thought was: damn they look so similar to Revlon Just Bitten Kissable! I'm a big fan of the Revlon balm stain (US price $6.49 - $8.99 depends on which drugstore), and these Jordana ones are only $2.99 each. Also Cherry Culture was having a 40% off site wide sale so I purchased all 8 shades with no doubt. All 8 of these were only $14.35 altogether, I have to be mad if I don't buy some...

Luxy Hair Extension: Unboxing & First Impression

BEFORE & AFTER


DISCLAIMER: This is not a sponsored review by any form. I purchased Luxy Hair Extension myself with my own money! All the opinions are 100% honest. 

I've been having a set of hair extension bought off AliExpress for a while. It was really cheap and the amount of hair I got was decent. But the problem was the hair on that extension was really thick texture, really dried hair. So not long after I purchased, it started to become super dry, tangle up all the time, and really doesn't feel as smooth as it was before, and started to become hard to blend with my own hair. 
So after I've been doing a bit of research, I finally targed down to these three brands: Luxy Hair, BellaMi Hair, Milani Hair...

Mermaid Makeup & Hair Tutorial for Halloween
Far out in the ocean the water is as blue as the petals of the loveliest cornflower, and as clear as the purest glass. She is beautiful, she loves, she lost her voice for the love but she dances. She is the little mermaid. This is my favourite fairy tale since I was a little girl, I used to cry every time when I was reading the part that she turned into sea foam at dawn. 
So today I'm here doing my first halloween tutorial, showing you guys how to get this mermaid makeup and hair...

elf Essential Lipsticks Review & Swatches

e.l.f. Essential Lipstick: Nostalgic, Classy, Flirtatious, Charming, Captivating, Fantasy
So today I'm reviewing and swatching these six shades of Essential Lipsticks that I've got from e.l.f. every now and then over the years. 
I think most of you guys are quite familiar with these, but probably not everyone has tried them since people might worry about if the quality is good or not since they're a bit "too cheap".
$1.00 ?! Yes! I don't think any other lipsticks can beat this price. So just follow me and let's see if they're worth to try or not...

Wet N Wild MegaLast Lip Color & Wet N Wild Silk Finish Lipstick Review & Swatches

Wet N Wild MegaLast Lip Color Lipsticks - 8 on the top rows
& Wet N Wild Silk Finish Lipsticks - 4 on the bottom
If you've never tried anything from Wet N Wild, I think you're definitely missing something. The price of their products are pretty much a steal while the quality is still compatible to lost of high end products, seriously!

I picked 8 shades from the MegaLast range ($1.99) and 4 shades from the Silk Finish range ($0.99). 
All of them are super pigmented and formula is really creamy and moisturizing, while the price is unbelievably CHEAP! I definitely recommend these to anyone to try out...
