Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick in Coral Crush - REVIEW & SWATCHES

Told you guys I'd post more frequently after my finals! Well, my finals' only officially over tomorrow. I have Biology Paper 1 & 6 left, and I'm really calm.. That's bad. Oh! I have Literature too. Damnnnnn. BUT, I am already posting more frequently, right right right? :D

Today I have a review & swatches for you!

This is the not-so-new Color Sensational Lipstick by Maybelline. The shade I'm showing you today is Coral Crush.






This is a nice, bright pink colour. To me, it's nothing too crazy or out of my comfort zone. I do wear a lot of bright, bold lipsticks like my MAC Morange. That's crazy Orange! But I love bright lipsticks! They're just my thing. Especially for summer! :) 

This can be very wearable and also very, very bold. As you can see from the swatch above, it's very buildable. The lighting wasn't very good.. Sorry. Grainy pics it is then! Hahahaha. But it's still a pretty pink colour that I think will look universally flattering.

This lip colour is very long wearing. Like, super. It stays on your lips, throughout the day, even after eating! It sounds pretty creepy, like it's stained on your lips. Hahaha! Only makeup remover can remove this. Seriously. It's not as drying as normal long-wearing lipsticks are, but it is a little drying. It is a nice glossy finish.

Overall, I really like this lipstick and am definitely wanting to purchase some more. I'm not a huge fan of the packaging though, I don't know.. I just don't like the red. :/ Well, you can't judge a cover by its book, can you? Well, that's what I do :p

Packaging: 5/10
Formula: 8/10
Overall: 7/10
Repurchase?: Yes! :)

What's with all the BB Creams?!


I know. BB Creams are so talked about. You hear them in videos, on blogs & in magazines.. So what IS this BB Cream thing that I speak of?

By far the most amazing product for summer ever created by mankind.

They are all-in-one products. They act as a primer, sunscreen & foundation! What's not to love? BB Creams are products that give you more coverage than a tinted moisturizer, but less than foundations. BB Creams usually makes your skin look dewy.. Like I said, it's perfect for summer! They also feel very light on your face, which is good. Because, who would want to be sweaty and feel all caked up?

I have three favourite BB Creams as of now (not in order):
1) Garnier BB Cream

I love this because it feels really light on my skin. And lasts for so long! It's also really, really affordable. I got mine from my local drugstore (Watsons) for about RM15-RM20. That's only about $5! And you can probably get it for much less in the States, or where ever you live :D Who doesn't like a drugstore bargain?

Watch my Summer Foundation Routine featuring this baby!


I got an epic thumbnail! :)

2) Dr. G BB Cream


This instantly makes your face glow! It'll make you look awake even when you're half asleep! Well, not really. But you get what I mean! This will also help brighten up any dark spots if you use this BB Cream long term. This is pretty pricey though. I think this was about $30. You can get it on Sasa.

3) Elianto Multiplex BB Cream


Love this! Light-weight and brightening. Lasts pretty long. LOVE the SPF 40! You can get this from Zalora. It's free shipping - WORLDWIDE!!! I don't remember the price of this one, but I think it's around $10-$20.

You should definitely check out BB Creams if you haven't already given in to all the hype!

So.. what do you guys think of BB Creams? Any recommendations so I can try more?

NOTD: Neon Leopard!

Yay! My finals are going to be over after Wednesday! :D But today, I just wanted to quickly share with you what I have on my nails now. I love this design and it was really easy to do! The leopard mani has to be one of my favourite designs to do!


Somehow the coral turned out a lot more fuschia. Sorry :/ hahaha! 
I used Elianto's Coral Light for the dots and the other nails. For the base of the accent nail, i used The Face Shop's BK902. Then I used a striper dipped in black polish.


Do you like rocking the leopard mani design?

Summer Makeup Look Inspired by Sunsets! (Seventeen Malaysia Contest Entry)


Hey beautifuls! :) Today I'd like to share a makeup look with you. This was inspired by the sunset (yet again). I love sunsets! & I love being inspired by nature. This is my entry for Seventeen Malaysia's Best Eyeshadow Contest :)

Let me whet your appetites!

You're with your partner, sitting by the beach, watching the beautiful sunset. You can see the orange getting lower and lower revealing a purple evening sky.

Neh, I'm not good at this, haha! Lets just get on with the pictures!


All eyeshadows used are from BHCosmetics 120 Colour Palette (2nd edition), unless stated otherwise.

I put a yellow eyeshadow half way across my eyelid starting from the inner corners. Then put a raspberry shade on the outer half of my eyelids. I then took a shimmery orange colour to act as a transition colour between the yellow & the raspberry. Then I used a coral shade to blend out all the harsh edges. I sprayed some water on my angled liner brush and dipped it into the combination of Dark Purple + Navy Blue to resemble the purple evening sky. For my inner corner highlight, I used Half Baked from my Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette and I used Foxy for my browbone from the same palette. I'm wearing the #9 lashes from The Face Shop.

MORE PICTURES!




What do you guys think about this look? Would you ever wear it?

Thank you so much for reading! <3

How I Wear My Nails For Summer! + more awards for my little blog!

*warning: gross toe picture :p*



HEY GUYS! I'm not good at nail art, seriously.. Hahaha! So, I always opt for solid colours. I love using two  different colours of nail polish, ever since like a year ago. My Mum thinks it's weird! BUT HEY! It's in trend now! YAY :)

I love wearing two colours two different ways! I show one way on my nails & one on my toes. Disgusting. But.. I love this colour combo so.. I thought I'd just show you. :D 

This is Elianto's Coral Light (the coral colour) and Elianto's S09 (the blue)

These pictures were actually taken with my phone and I like the quality a lot better. Tell me what you guys think!

1) Alternating (kind of) Colours

For this, I usually like to paint my middle finger and ring finger a different colour. And I like to alternate hands. Like for example, if I paint the blue on the two accent fingers on my left hand, I'd paint the accent fingers on my right hand coral. Geddit? :/ Wow, I'm really bad at explaining things :p Oh well, I'll let the pictures explain then. :)


(Left Hand)


(Right Hand)

Sorry my right hand polish is a little streaky and dented. The blue is starting to dry up on me :( Need to get a new bottle 'cause I just love this colour combo so much!

2) One colour on each side

If I paint my left hand/toes blue, I'd paint my right hand/toes coral! 
....

I'll just let the picture do the explaining again. :D


YES I HAVE FAT TOES D:


I got two more Liebster awards from Jessi from Jessi in Wonderland and Hananoire!

Hananoire's 11 questions for me:

1. What is it that you like about blogging?
None of my friends are into makeup like I am, so having people to virtually share info with on makeup is really fun! :)

2. Do you have a fashion icon? Who is he/she?
Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen

3. When you're not 'breathing' makeup, what do you do with your time?
Watching my favourite shows like Family Guy and Pretty Little Liars!

4. How would you describe yourself when you were 15 years old?
That was only last year :p I just got into makeup and I was OBSESSED!

5. What's the best piece of advice anyone has given you?
Forget the past, live in the present & live FOR the future.

6. What do you think about the negative (sometimes offesnive) comments people leave on beauty community social media sites?
I personally choose to turn a blind eye to them. But I feel that you should really not say anything if you don't have anything nice to say. :)

7. Who was the first beauty youtuber/blogger you subscribed to?
Bubzbeauty. STILL LOVE HER. She's like my INSPIRATION <3

8. What's your favourite song?
Right now.. Payphone by Maroon 5! AND THEY'RE COMING FOR A CONCERT!

9. If you were to develop a makeup line, which product would you be most excited about and why?
I would be excited about foundation, because I have yet to find a foundation that has full coverage and yet moisturizes and feel lightweight. My Revlon Colorstay foundation lacks moisture. D;

10.How many nail polishes do you own?
I'm thinking 30-50. :)

11. If you could only pick one skin care product, which one would you choose?
Makeup Cleansing Wipes.. I'm super lazy :3


Jessi doesn't have any questions for me. So yeah that's it! :D



Thanks for reading! :)
