Innisfree Creamy Tint Color Balm Intense Velvet

Woolala~

Back here to share my thoughts on this lip crayon that i’ve been wearing very often lately.

I’ve actually bought this off Qoo10 2 months ago, but seldom wear it, even though i LOVE the color. I’ve got the color Velvet red #16 and Let’s Kiss #7. But today, i will be just talking about the Velvet Red #16 since i prefer this to #7.

Texture wise, it’s velvety and smooth. Color payoff is really awesome and lasting as well. I used Revlon’s lip crayon (matte) before but it got really drying and dry patches on my lips were super obvious. Comparing Revlon to Innisfree, the latter definitely win hands down! It doesn’t dry my lips, applies smoothly and was a breeze to use! The color #16 is like dried rose, which was a very popular color in Korea during their fall/winter season. I don’t know why when i went korea in Oct last year, i didnt buy this shade, instead i bought #7. Oh. i think i know why. Bf was waiting too long, and i felt bad so i just chose a shade that looks nice and went off. haha so sad! Ladies, next time please go korea with your girlfriends if you are a makeup junkie. LOL!

I’m abit concern about the lid of this lip balm. Usually for this kind of transparent lid, i will either push it in too hard and it cracks, or i drop it and it cracks. So if it cracks, will the product dry up? Idk. So i’ve been verrrrry careful whenever i close the lid.

Swatch!

How it looks when applied.

Erm, i blurred the corners of my lips, got tiny hairs down there so pls don’t mind ya. haha :>
I really love this shade so much! You can see, theres no dry patches, it felt like a lip balm instead of tint. Although this color made me looks abit mature, but i dont mind. All for beauty!! I also had to over-line my lip alittle cos erm, my lips are quite small. Otherwise, i will look even older!

Managed to find one full face pic with the lippies on!

Not sure if it’s obvious, but i’m definitely a matte lip person. But sad leh, my office ppl don’t really apply lipstick etc. Then i’m like the only one or few. Somemore i like bright colors! Then all my bright colored lippies are left in the drawer, dont know when can i start to use them. 😦 Collecting dust!

Ok, i’m done with sharing. sorry if it’s very simple. But it’s sharing,not review ya? 😀

Struggle

I’m back!

Sorry to neglect this blog for some time. It was Chinese New Year, i was busy visiting with friends and relatives, and also thinking very hard what i want in life.

So i started my new job for a month, and i dont like it. SIGH. WHY. Probably cos i think i am not up to the job, or i don’t like the boss, or the culture of them messaging about work via whatsapp. To me, i dislike discussing about work during lunch and after work. These are my personal time and i get very turned off when it happens. It only shows me how pushy the bosses can be cos they don’t value your personal time. But at least my ex company doesnt have this culture. Probably cos we all dislike that so we don’t practise. Ohh how i miss the old workplace, the ex colleagues and fun times we had. But no, i’m not gonna head back there.

Then, i started thinking of doing my own business. But what can i do? I have no skills. I explored dog groomer, makeup artist, wedding planner. Dog groomer, i’m scared of being bitten by the dogs or get injured, or even hurting the dogs accidentally. Makeup artist, is it a stable career, with stable income? I still need to spend money to go for professional course, but i won’t regret going cos that’s where my interest lies. Wedding planner is something that i had wanted to do since eons ago, when i was still naive and young. Thinking that it would be so fulfilling to help a couple plan their wedding and see them happily married at the end of the day. But hmm, that’s not my interest haha.

So how? I don’t know what to do. Should i continue to be in HR? Sigh…. So vexed! So confused! To make it worse, i’m planning for wedding and my house will be ready last next year, it’s adding on to my stress. :(:(

Boyfriend has been supportive, told me to find a new job if i really dislike my current. He already told me something was wrong when i accepted the offer. He also wanted to change job, but he couldn’t do so as i was still unstable in this new place. Really don’t want to burden him down. He also encouraged me to go for the makeup course cos that’s my interest and i can earn some income from it in future.

😦

On a side note, been slacking so much on my pole practise. Did brass monkey with spotters’ help. I don’t think i can ever do it by myself haha. That fear of falling is real!

Wedding Preparation – Part 1

So bf and I decided that we should get started with finding a master to calculate our wedding date since the proposal in Oct. I know. We are very slow and had been slacking. So we finally emailed one of the more popular master, but he could only meet us in March! Gosh. Can i still find my desired hotel venue if i only confirm the date in March? I highly doubt so, given that most singaporeans are very kia-su (don’t wanna lose out) and will book their venue at least a year in advance. I don’t wish to settle for an open-date package with the hotel too, just in case the date i want turns out to be unavailable for us.

Now, we’ve got to try our luck and see if master will give us the dates first while we search for venue, and meet in Mar to discuss the details. Otherwise, we would have to find another master already. Sigh. Why didnt we approach him earlier? Such mess into the start of the preparation and is already turning me off. 😦

I’m also starting to browse and research the bridal studios and wedding banquet venue. So much to research!! Headache.

I hope i will be a happy bride! On a side note, i’m starting work soon next week, after a 3 months long break! Felt so fortunate that i was given this break, when i was offered the job in Oct-Nov. YAY!

Beauty bloggers

Just to share something that came up on my mind.

I was searching around for reviews on some of the skincare/cosmetics online. So while i was surfing, i noticed that it is significantly harder to find reviews that are genuine as compared to the past. Most of the reviews now are either for advertisement purposes, or bloggers just grab the content off the website and paste it on theirs. Now, i’m not saying that there are no genuine posts around, it’s just… hard to find. Don’t get me wrong. It gets frustrating when you see reviews from different blogs but they all sounds the same.

Funniest thing would be e.g. Blogger A claims that makeup remover X is her highly raved product and how it changes her makeup removal routine. But shortly after, there will be new post of hers exclaiming how she is in love with makeup removal Y. Both are ad purposes.

Like, hello?! What’s the point of reviewing when it is not sincere? Viewers can see all these, please. Soon, i gave up searching for bloggers’ review since 1) they don’t help much, 2) mostly are ads, 3) they are so much younger than me, i’ve probably tried so much more products then they had and well…we don’t have similar skin type. theirs could be much more elastic etc etc.

I will still be relying on the good o’ Makeupalley for reviews.

Proposal <3

Finally caught the show ‘Our Times’! It was so awesome! Didn’t expect myself to tear watching such movies. I don’t usually cry when I watch movies tho. Pls go watch it if u haven’t already!

I also want to document down how his proposal to me was. Although it wasn’t much, and he didn’t seem to put in much effort (pun intended), but still, I have a poor memory so I want to remember that moment.
It was a short and sweet one. So we got up Seoul tower, looked and walked around. We sat down at one corner where there weren’t much people. And I suggested to write on the lock. But he wanted to write first and then I wrote mine.

Then I wrote mine, he asked if I wanna know what he wrote. So yeah, of course right? If not, write for what? Then I said ‘duh,of course la!’. So he showed me the other side and got down on his knees infront of me. You see, he didn’t even put the question mark! Smiling and anxious, he popped the qn. Of course I didn’t agree right away, instead I push the ring away and asked, ‘why no flowers one! Not sincere at all! I can reject one right?!’.

Hahaha! All we did was laugh so hard tt time.

He said he couldn’t buy flowers cos I stick to him so much during the trip, he can’t plan surprises too. Hahaha I agreed, so I let him go. Then I asked ‘why no touching speech?? Or tell me why should I marry you’. I couldn’t remember what his answer was, kinda sad now tt I recall. See? My memory is really poor. I think it was smth along the line that he loves me and want to be with me forever kinda thing. Nothing touching. Haha so, ya I told him he owe me flowers then.

thumb_IMG_2252_1024

He looked so happy and promised on the flower part and quickly forcefully push the ring on my finger. -.- why my proposal like that one!!! 一点都不浪漫. Till today, I told him I shouldn’t have said yes first. Hahaha! And he made me waited for so long till the last day of the trip then propose to me. Kns, I was like waiting for it everyday leh, and he knows I was waiting. -.-

But it’s okay, although he can be a reaaaaal woodblock so many times, I guess that’s what I like about him. 😂 and he still owe me flowers! 😡

We just sent the ring for adjustment. It was too loose on me. He used his pinky finger as a gauge. In the end, we adjusted it to two size smaller. And it will be another 3-4 weeks wait~

Okay gotta remember this post so that I can reminisce back in future, haha!

Updates on my life and Pole practise

It has been almost two weeks since i left my job. The feeling was…mixed, i guess? Not that i’m hating it, just feeling insecure that i’ve yet to find a job that i like. I’ve been receiving calls for interviews these past weeks, some were good, some were ugh, lets just not talk about those. There are some companies which i would really love to be able to join them! But, knowing myself, i will fail at the interview, even though i’m a HR myself. I just can’t seem to sell myself well during interviews, it’s just…. not me.

Tada! They call this pose ‘angel’. Does it fit me? LOL This trick doesn’t hurt, but damn, what happens after this is omg freaking pain! I still have yet to master the other trick, hence will not be posting it. Shall practise more tomorrow then!

Bad haze in Singapore

What a Monday! Didn’t sleep well last night due to the bad haze, constantly have that roasted smell in my room despite having the purifier turned on. -.- irritating. Why do Indo* have to burn their forest!

Only realised that the haze got worse when i went out of my office after work. There was haze even along the corridor of our offices! And again, it smells so bad! Told my colleagues to quickly go home cos the air quality is really terrible.

On a brighter note, there’s pole class tomorrow!!! yay!
