I know Spring is almost here, but I have to admit there's no differences in where I live since it's a tropical climate here. But, I thought I wouldn't hurt either if I attempt to try a little bit. It'll be best time to look into my color palette and play with it, and this time it will be "BLUE"

REVIEW: B.LIV by Cellnique

As most people do suffer, I did have quite a problem with blackheads and whiteheads, mostly blackheads. To say how much I love using pore strip, I find it could be a little expensive to be used regularly.

Now that my hair has grew long down to my waist now, I do have some products that I added into my routine to give life to my hair. I'd say I have quite pretty dry hair from those bleaches, colors, and heat that I applied on my hair before.

Dove Damage Therapy Intense Repair Shampoo
It says helps strengthens hair from roots to tip, and contain fiber Actives penetrate to help reconstruct from within. Usually I never really on one specific product to use for Shampoo or Conditioner, but now that I use Dove Shampoo , I can feel my hair super soft even when I'm using it alone. Although I could use some extra steps for some extra nourish. One tip I usually do when I wash my hair is start from the back and work all the way to crown. It helps to create volume to the hair.

Dove Damage Therapy Intense Repair Conditioner
I never leave my bathroom without conditioner. Usually I just leave it on for few minutes and finish the rest of my hygiene steps.  It really helps to de-tangle my hair, and leave my hair extra soft.

Dove Hair Fall Rescue Treatment Mask
My hair did suffer from hair fall and I always feel very frustrated. Although some people say that it's normal if is in range 50-100 pieces/day, I think some help never worst.

Dove Hair Fall Rescue Oil Serum
After shampooing and my hair still damp, I applied some oil serum throughout my hair and concentrate towards the ends. I did believe my hair is less fallout after using this for quite a while.

Lucido Triple Beauty Vitamin Spray
It contains hyluronic acid, vitamin B5, and protein to retain moisture, and nutrients also protect hair from the heat. I just spritz some to my hair and leaves my hair shiny and smells so nice.

Dove  Intense Repair Overnight Treatment 
It's a leave in treatment that you leave overnight to help replenish vital protein, restoring resistance and strength. It's been an extra step that I added to my routine and it's been a life changing. I realize my hair is less tangle and frizzy the next morning , and make it so much easier to style.

Usually I just leave my hair air dry to keep the moisture and also to avoid any heat damage. I also try to avoid overwashing my hair, probably 2-3 times a week. I might use some Dry Shampoo or homemade one like cocoa powder in between washes.

We can all agree that Japanese women mostly have perfect skin, of course for a good reason. They seems to have a really good skincare product range and I'm totally buying it. Personally, I quite enjoy using a few product myself like this mask from SANA

We all jealous of Angelina Jolie's sexy full lip, but for those of you like me maybe don't lucky enough to own them, don't fret! There are a few ways to get those fuller looking lips. 
"Lip Augmentation" aka Lip Surgery is one of the fastest way to achieve that, but not to the mention the cost and risk of that. I've seen quite a bit of surgical gone wrong on internet and those totally makes me thrilled. 

Here are some tips and tricks to make the appears more fuller:

1. Start with concealer
Before apply anything to the lips, start mattifying the lips with some concealer with a sponges, brushes, or even finger. It helps to create a great base to makes the color more vibrant.

2. Using Lip Liner
Lip liner helps to enhance the look of fuller lips and also give more precise color on your lips. Use 2 color of lip liner, one darker than the other. Line the darker color from the corner of the lips, leaving the middle part of the lips with lighter color. It will create the nice dimension to the lips. 
I'm using here Revlon ColorStay LipLiner in Natural and Blush

3. Time for Some Color
Now, it's time to put on some color to the lips. 
I'm using Revlon Super Lustrous Shine Lipstick in Rich Girl Red.

4. Highlight and Contour the Lips
Not only those apply on face, it's also can be apply on lips. Apply some highlight on the above of the upper middle lips with a "V" shape to enhance the cupid's bow and same way apply some bronzer just beneath the lower lips. Don't forget to blend them, you don't want any harsh edges showing through.

5. Extra Lovely Fuller Lips
For some glossy finish, you can top it of with some lip gloss to give some dewy and fuller looking lips.
For matte finish, you can dab a bit of lighter shade concealer and dab on center of the lower lips and blend them well. 

Now, your lips will look like they've been surgical done! Or at least 3x bigger than then they actually are. 
So why waste the money to get your lips done? Spending a few extra minutes won't hurt!

DIY Makeup Organizing Holder

Recently I have been trying to make some glam up some glasses which had been sitting on my cupboard for a long time. Then I spotted my leftover old paper clay from my college project few years back so I decided to make these.

If you have oily or acne prone skin, you might need this in your life. Clay mask helps to absorb extra oil and properties on your face and also can be used as an exfoliant to draw out impurities from the skin.  By all mean, any skin type are welcome to use clay mask as well.
I wanna introduce this mask from The Face Shop, it's the Pore Minimizer Controlling Clay Mask. It's a thick mint green formula and dries out pretty quickly. Also it claims to be minimize the appearance of your pores.

NOTW: Valentine Pink

As one of my New Year Resolution I made for this year is start do more sketching, I've been stick to it and start to improve my drawing skill. I think would be appropriate if I incorporate some pink to welcome this beautiful upcoming Valentine's day. Of course my nails aren't exception.

This nail polish actually was in one of my mom's collection, I just borrow it. I just applied 2 coats and it gives very pretty bright pink color and totally scream Valentine for me. I hardly ever wear too much of pink with me, but for V-day I could make an exception for that.

It totally made me excited for V-day so I'm loving my nails now!

The original picture I drew is from Kandee who is an artist and designer who also run a company in selling her art. She's really an amazing artist, I loved to check her art but just didn't have the money to buy any creation of hers. I really like one of her design "The Owl'd Owl'd Story", so I decided to draw it. Apparently it turns out different. (lol).

What do you guys think?



With Valentine's day is right around the corner, most of the people probably get excited about this lovely day with their beloved ones. Unfortunately, regardless of it you are in a relationship, single or dating, almost everyone is subjected to one small but yet undeniable sad truth, No one can win on Valentine's day. So, here I present to you an Anti Valentine Look. I got inspired by one of the post by Adrienne few days back, so I decided to create one.

I'm a big believer in good exfoliation can makes quite a different for your face. Exfoliation can help remove the dead skin cell on the skin so keeps skin clean and reduce acne appearances. But for over the year, I find the Simple Facial Scrub is a little bit harsh on me. Until I found this Cure Natural Aqua Gel.
