I haven't used a new brow product in what feels like years. I usually use an angled brush dipped in black eyeshadow to arch out my brows, so it took some time to get used to using a brow pencil again. And I have to say, I find using a pencil much more time consuming, and I don't like the results as much.
I'm familiar with the brand Beige as I have tried their eyeliner (which I hated). Thank you Bntnews for sending me this product!
Draws delicate eyebrows
Buildable pigmentation and able to be layered
Oil- control formula to boost adhesion
I'm just gonna put this out there. This is hands down my favourite cleanser at the moment and it completely exceeded my expectations! I am still using my Lavicos powder enzyme cleanser in the mornings because it provides the perfect gentle cleanse for my skin in the mornings when my skin is just a bit stale. However it wasn't powerful enough to remove my makeup at night. I have always used two different cleansers for morning and night anyway and it just so turns out that this Laviscos gel cleanser meets all my needs for night cleansing.
Refreshing and moisturising cleanser with gentle gel foam
Aloe vera extract
Lifts away impurities and removes makeup
I always take the 'removes makeup' claim with a pinch of salt because I wear a full base (foundation, concealer, powder) and rarely find a cleanser powerful enough to remove everything in one go.

Korean mascaras do not have a good track record in my books, as they usually do not cater to my lash needs. I love big, sexy false lashes and wear them every single day. On the off days where I don't wear falsies, I need my mascara to transform my lashes into the biggest, fluffiest lashes possible and I find that Korean mascaras usually do not deliver. I hoped that this Catalinageo mascara sent by Bntnews would break down my misgivings, but sadly it didn't.
The mascara claims to deliver a 3D volume effect, lasts for 12 hours and gives a detailed long lash look without clumping. It is smudge free, and I noticed that it does not claim to be waterproof which made me doubt it's curling power already. I always buy waterproof mascaras because they are the only type of mascara that holds a curl for my Asian lashes.

I would like to turn my blog away from beauty product reviews and incorporate more health and lifestyle posts. My definition of beauty has changed quite recently. I believe health is the single most important aspect of life. When I don't feel good, I am basically Mrs grumpy pants and it affects everyone around me. When I'm healthy, I feel great and I'm happy and in turn, that helps the people around me. You get back what you put out!

Remember my part 1 x-23 post which detailed my design and thought process for my costume? Well I finally finished my costume some months ago and managed to shoot in it with the one and only Darkforce cosplay in his amazing wolverine cosplay. Do we make a sexy team? Michael from Vestiige photography took charge of the artistic direction for this shoot and we explored a new location, the old abandoned Boral factory.
I'm currently working on getting my abs back for Supanova with intermittent fasting (leangains) paired with bulletproof coffee in the mornings.

In my opinion, green eyes are probably the hardest colour for asians to pull off. Somehow I even think purple/pink lenses look more natural than green, but I was intrigued when the lovely girls at Klenspop suggested their best selling Bunny 3 Color Green lenses for review.

The third and most glamorous of my minimalistic picks from Tobi.com is the Goddess-like Wilhelmina maxi dress. This piece is right up my alley. When in doubt I always go for a white dress to make a statement. This dress is made of a stretch jersey material which is thin and curve-hugging, but does not look it. I love that I can wear a regular bra underneath it! I did make one alteration where I tacked the front sections together higher up to cover my chest more decently. If you are well endowed you probably don't need to do this.
I kept my regular mess of hair deep parted to the side and slipped on some nude heels and gold waterfall earrings to enhance the 'glow'. The beautiful yellow sunlight helps too! Thank you Oscar for capturing these shots, we make a great team.
