Etude House Happy Teatime Cleansing Cream Review *Aloe Tea*

Welcome to another review! It's probably not surprising that it's on yet another Etude House product...affordable prices, adorable packaging - what's the point of resisting? 

Here I've got the Aloe Tea cleansing cream, part of Etude's Happy Teatime skincare line. I do also have the cleansing foam equivalent, in Peach Tea which has been reviewed here. While I find the cleansing foam to be a great product, it really wasn't suiting my dry Winter skin, so I've switched to the cleansing cream for now. Cleansing creams tend to moisturise as well as cleanse, which is what my skin needs at the moment. 

There are three tea variants to choose from - Lemon, Milk, and Aloe. It was a struggle between Aloe and Milk, but I settled for Aloe, because it's known for being quite gentle on the skin.

Talk Nerdy to Me - Geek Chic Glasses from Firmoo *sponsored product post*

My weird kissy-face ^o^
Well, you've seen me embrace my inner grandpa with some awesome tortoiseshell glasses (as seen here), and now I'm ready to embrace my inner geek, with these fashion glasses I recently received from online store, Firmoo

Firmoo is an online store that carries a large range of glasses for gals and guys - which you can tailor to your own satisfaction. As long as you have your current prescription at hand, you can buy fashionable prescription frames at reasonable prices - or if you're like me, you can choose non-prescription frames just for 'fashion' ^_^

DIAMOND LASH - Angel Eye Review

I'm back with a new review, on another Gyaru-style lash set from Diamond Lash. The Angel Eye set is my second DL purchase, after trying the Dolly Eye lashes. 

I was a bit puzzled by the name - these lashes are anything but angelic, in my opinion. They're much too dramatic and noticeable! 

But then again, there is something about these lashes that do make me think of feathers...hmm.

Hardcore false lash-aholics may be swooning at the sight of these very pretty looking lashes, but beginners, or those not particularly interested in Gyaru-style make-up, may be put off by the sheer length of these. How wearable are these Angel Eye lashes? Keep reading to find out ^_^

Part and Parcel of Being a Girl (the power of cosmetics) *FOTD/Gyaru before and after*

Hi! Something a little different today - a FOTD post! It's been ages since I've done one - but today's special because you get to see the before pic too *eek!*

I decided to go to extra effort with my make-up today, because I needed to take some photos for some upcoming reviews. While I was watermarking some of the photos, I was thinking that 'wow, make-up really makes a difference!' Then it gave me the idea of doing a before and after make-up post, as I've seen these types of posts from other bloggers before. I've never been brave enough, until today...*dun, dun dun*

Continue reading to see what brands/products I used, and the 'before' pic~

FACE MIST REVIEW: My Beauty Diary Orange Blossom and White Lotus Moisturising Mist

Hello, hello - how is everyone? Today's post is another review, this time it's on a cute and little face mist, from My Beauty Diary

I'm really into face spritz/spray/mist thingies right now - partly because I was lured by the claim that they to do all sorts of wonderful things, but mostly because they add a bit of fun to the beauty routine! Oh, how easily amused I am...

Anyway, not all mists have the same function - some claim to set make-up, and others claim to refresh tired skin. This one from MBD is a moisturising mist, so in theory it could be used as a replacement for your normal moisturiser. 

But can it? Read on to find out~

SKINCARE REVIEW: TCM - Traditional Chinese Medicine Sleeping Pack

Hi lovely people! Today's review is on a super cheap sleeping pack, that was recently featured in my August Favourites post. A few people expressed some curiosity about these, so I hope that this post will be helpful~

Actually, after using this brand of sleeping packs I discovered that they're quite effective as a pimple cream! That's pretty cool, because I do love a product that's multi-functional, haha.

SKINCARE REVIEW: SKIN79 Crystal Peeling Gel

Hi there! 

Today I want to share my review on a new peeling gel I've been using. Peeling gels have become a popular alternative to the traditional exfoliating scrubs on the market, particularly for people with sensitive or problem prone skin, who don't want to deal with the harshness of the beads in some scrubs. 

After a bit or research, I decided to settle for the quite affordable Crystal Peeling Gel from SKIN79 - which claims to be suitable even for sensitive skin types (I wanted something gentle).

Giveaway update! New winner announcement~

Okay, so what I did not want to see happen did in fact happen :( 

The winner of my giveaway unfortunately has not replied to my email within the 48 hours I had stated. I feel bad, but in order to be fair to the other participants who entered, I've now drawn up a new winner through Rafflecopter. 

Congrats to Chelsea R - I hope you're keeping an eye on your email inbox! Don't make me have to re-draw another winner >_< 

I've now sent through an email (using the email address you provided), and I do hope you reply back within the next 48 hours.

My August faves AKA my Winter skincare arsenol!

This is my first 'favourites' blog post! Since I almost always stick to the same beauty items month to month, I've not had anything particularly exciting to make a favourites post on. 

But last month I ended up trying a fair few new items (since my makeup & skincare is often purchased at the same time, and is used up at the same time - allowing me to try new products every 3 or 4 months). So I guess, don't expect monthly favourites, but maybe expect quarter-yearly favourites instead? Haha...

*PS - the winner of my giveaway has been announced in the post before this one.*

August Beauty Haul Post *image heavy*

Australis - NUDIST eye shadow palette
The poor girl version of the Urban Decay NAKED palette, maybe?

Hi! Welcome to my August beauty haul post~

It seems August was a good month for me, beauty-wise. There were quite a number of sales and clearances happening, so I managed to pick up some interesting products to try for cheap. And for once, this beauty haul is a more a mix of Asian, Australian and US brands :)

I tried to be good, and only made 2 small online orders last month - but that probably meant I spent more in stores instead, to sate my shopping thirst...
