TONY MOLY Cat Chu Lip Tint (No. 2 & 3)

I don't know about you, but I've been abusing something called lip tint. Whoever made this stuff is GENIUS! I always saw Tony Moly lip tints pop up when I search for some and I went ahead and got two colors from their Cat Chu line because I'm a sucker for cats.




ORANGE CHACHA
It was when I was obsessed with orange lip colors that made me want this color and it's orange alright. And I was in loooove. It's bright but not overpowering and the shade is very wearable even for those with a more olive skin tone(me). 



RED
This color can be very bold! I have a way of applying this one so as not to make it too red and that is by applying as little of the tint as possible then smudging it haha With this color, it can come off as a reddish pink or just a solid red depending on how much you apply! There is a pink option called Cherry Pink if you think red is a bit much.


OVERALL
As soon as I got these two lip tints every. single. day. They are my quick go to lippies :) I've used up half of each already! I got them almost a year ago but there's still plenty left. The color for both last very long, almost 5 hours without touching up. And I drink a lot of water and tea btw. Once the lip tint is applied and dried it doesn't smudge nor transfer it's color. I highly recommend these for anyone looking for lip tints to try! They work great as a base for lipstick as well, makes the color more vibrant and long lasting. 

I got these off Ebay, I don't have the links anymore but I got them from a seller based in Korea. Hopefully you can try them too!

{KKCenterHK} Au Naturel

Yes, it's contradictory as they are falsies ;)


Thanks to KKCenterHK I've had the chance to try and review so many great lashes and these are another wonderful pair! These looked natural while delivering a good amount of length and I got more than what I expected.


LENGTH 
Very long! However, it is still within a passable or rather "natural" length. If comparing them to other designs, they would be on par in length. But the difference is that these are far more natural.

VOLUME
Although these lashes do have a fair amount of volume it isn't the key here. Having tiny, shorter lashes between the longer ones do aid with this though. Mascara on your natural lashes can fix this well :) 

ARRANGEMENT/QUALITY
To describe these lashes, I'd say they look like lash extensions. The design is so natural and light. Quality? No complaints. The band is transparent and thin. The ends don't bother me even when applied closer to the inner corner(you can see this is the photo above). The only thing is to be careful when removing the lashes from the box as pulling the adhesive off can disarrange the lashes.

So there, there~ if you would like to get these,

Candylicious Crystal Red

I've had red lenses once before and I thought they looked amazing and vampy. There's this dark but pretty look to red eyes, possibly mysterious? These lenses are from ♥AppleofYo​urEyes♥ and are under the Candylicious label. 




COLOR + DESIGN
I've seen several lenses with the same design labelled differently but the main point it that the lenses have black shards that run throughout the lenses. The design imitates the effect of a crystal and is more vibrant in some areas than others. The red is a ruby red that shows up very well on my dark eyes and blends well near the center.

COMFORT + ENLARGEMENT
The comfort isn't bad at all, some dryness after a couple of hours but since the enlargement is pretty much HUGE what can you expect.

OVERALL
I was quite surprised that they didn't look too odd even though I wore minimal makeup. If going for a mysterious or vampy look these work well. Because the enlargement is big, you can wear this and pass off a dolly look easily too!

TRINITY STYLES Leather Collar Floral Chiffon Top

I had a chance to review a second piece of clothing from Trinity Styles and I love the piece they sent me! It's a feminine and chic top that has leather accented collars.

Leather Collar Floral Chiffon Top - CLICK





The buttons are covered by a flap on the right side. You might need to reinforce the button sewing to be on the safe side. Also, I thought I should mention that the top can be a bit sheer depending on what you wear under.



Overall, the quality of this top is quite amazing with the seams and sewing, very well made and you can tell from the first look. The fabric is not thin but quite sturdy compared to many other tops that might be sold online(or even in stores). May I add that the silk feeling of the fabric makes it feel like I'm wearing pajama tops? No joke.

If you like trendy styles I'd say take a minute to check out their website :)

Beautiful A.M. Moisturizer & P.M Revitalizer

Been super busy the past two weeks with friends visiting and eating. Went cray(example: ate dim sum and two hours later had a pizza party) and gained a few but it's fine, I'll have to get back on track haha 

So on to the actual post, I have been trying out a skin product frowww.trustedhealthproducts.com known as the Beautiful A.M. Moisturizer & P.M Revitalizer. The one for men is called The Man. It's a serum that is made from live fruit, nut and plant extract to feed your skin cells for that healthy skin we all want.

They add your name on the label btw :3 D'awwww

Benefits
It's 100% pure and natural, made of botanical oils
No preservatives/chemicals
Decreases appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
Intensely moisturizes naturally 
Cleanses pores of dirt and bacteria
For all skin types
All in one - replaces moisturizer, cleanser, toner, firming gel, protectant, repair cream, blemish controller, age-defying serum

The REVIEW
(My skin type: I have normal/oily skin and after washing my face my face feels dry.)

I apply the products after washing my face by dropping a few drops on the palm of my hands, rubbing it and then patting it on my face. I like this method better than the directions it came with. Much more time efficient imo. 3 drops is sufficient for my entire face whereas the directions say you might need 3 drops per cheek.

3-4 drops

The scent is delicious and fresh and I just want to eat it. But have I noticed any of the benefits?
It is incredibly moisturizing for sure. My face feels smoother and I don't have to go through the pain of toner and creams. However, because I don't use things like wrinkle cream, firming gel and age serums I can't comment on that area. But my mom loves it! lol She noticed that this smooths out wrinkles and fine lines and her skin is less dry during the day when this is used. When worn with makeup, the difference was subtle but I noticed application was very smooth and there was no cake-face to be found :D lol The result is very natural.

From the photo above, there is a very slight difference but in the BEFORE photo shows a bit of pigmentation and isn't as smooth as my skin in AFTER.

To be honest though, I wouldn't replace even my cleanser with this. I mean, I gots face products and black mascara on this face and that NEEDS to be removed.

One big thing I want you guys to know though is that with this product, when using it at first, you might get a breakout for 1-2 days and it can last for a week. But after that your skin will calm down. Reason being that the chemicals are being forced out through your skin. I experienced this little(But it may have been me going crazy on the food too so I can't say 100%) and after a week my skin is better. 

Each bottle runs for $24.97 and the set is $44.94

If that's a turn off then wait!!!!!
There's a giveaway + more ;D

Luxury Babe 70 Blue

Here's another quick review of lenses from Apple of Your Eyes :)


Lens Information
Diameter: 16.0mm
Thickness: 0.04mm
Prescription: Plano to -5.50
Life Span: 1 Year
Water Content: 45%
Base Curve: 8.6

NATURAL LIGHT
FLORESCENT LIGHT
FLASH

COLOR + DESIGN
The color is what got me for these lenses. The blue is vivid and contrasts with the darker limbal ring that somehow looks natural yet fake. The blue tones in the center are comprised of teal, green hues and aquas which is ridiculously pretty! The design comes of as tiny little shards that are concentrated in the center and slowly fade towards the outside.

COMFORT + ENLARGEMENT
These were surprisingly comfortable. I say surprising because the diameter is large yet I didn't feel them at all. The thickness is thin and my eyes didn't get dry as fast as other lenses I have worn. Enlargement is huge but not overwhelming. If you do have what is considered smaller eyes, these might not work for you though.

OVERALL
I really like these and it's a shame that they didn't have prescription in stock at the time I chose them! If you look closely, you can see I more very minimal eye makeup so I was pleased to see that even without fake lashes and thicker liner these still worked on me. 

Hopefully you guys like these as much as I do! They are quite unique and pretty :)

02.20.14 OOTD/FOTD + PTX

 I finally got myself a full body mirror so I could take proper photos of my outfits!

I don't generally use clutches when going out as it simply CANNOT carry what I always have with me - a water bottle. But I got a few during my Vietnam trip and thought that I should use them, not just for events.


The makeup is nothing aside from the norm. I'm surprisingly still keeping my long bangs. 

Tempted to cut it.



Additionally, I was able to go to a PTX concert last night!

They were on tour and came to my city to perform and they were simply UHMAAAAAZING.
Their videos on Youtube are great as it is, but to hear them perform live just gave me the chills constantly throughout the show. Not to mention that they are such a cute and talented group of artists, made me smile all night long :)

If you haven't heard of PENTATONIX yet, they are an amazing acapella group. Def check them out!
Below are just some songs that they performed live last night :)

{ Candylicious } Cherry 3 Tone Brown

Long time no circle lens review!

Today I'm reviewing a more natural brown pair that still gives you that pop you need. They were sent to me from ♥AppleofYo​urEyes♥ along with two other pairs that I will be reviewing soon. 

The pair today is known as 
They are a very nice brown lens that has a slight red tint to it.

LENS INFO
Manufacturer: Dueba
Diameter: 16.0mm
Water Content: 48%
BC: 8.6
Yearly Disposal


WINDOW LIGHT  
 INDOOR LIGHT
 FLASH

COLOR + DESIGN
The design is like a mix between the classic GEO three tones and the Puffy series. Which I think is so pretty! The three tones give dimension and help it make more blended and natural. The color is a reddish brown. The outer rim is a dark grey-brown and the center is where the reddish pigments are. 


COMFORT + ENLARGEMENT
 The comfort was good, I didn't get dry eyes with these as they also seem to be fairly thin in thickness. The diameter is 16.0mm which is usually too big for it to look natural on me, however, they don't seem to look that big at all! Possibly because the glasses were bigger haha

OVERALL
I really like these and would definitely wear them out as everyday lenses! Lovin' the color, lovin' the design. What more can I say? Oh, they have these in prescription, but I got these in plano, would've liked them in prescription now that I'd wear them even without glasses.

Here's the link to these lenses: 


And that's the last selfie here! If you guys would like to check out these lenses or any other series check out ♥AppleofYo​urEyes♥ naoo.

GET, GET, GET IT.
