I’ve been watching the series Once Upon a Time a lot. (Go watch it I’m not a fan of these TV series’ because I can never be bothered to keep up with it. The costumes in the show are worth watching for alone, and the story and acting is fantastic.)
Snow White is played by Ginnifer Goodwin (no I’m not spelling that wrong). She always looks so soft and sweet. I mean, she just looks like Snow White. They never give her red lips, her eyes are always left bare (they add falsies though) and her lips always have the softest pink flush to them. I am always staring at her beauty when she comes on the screen.
My makeup isn’t really much like hers, but I thought my dressing today was; loose shapes with soft materials and colours. I guess my makeup is a more literal intake of Snow White’s makeup, with understated red lips. Continue reading

Urban Decay Perversion 24/7 Glide-on Pencil is described as the ‘blackest-black matte‘. It costs SGD30 and USD19. The Urban Decay site states that the formula is ‘The best Eye Pencil ever, ever, ever! Never before has a pencil this creamy and brilliant been waterproof, too. Velvety-soft, this never-before-seen formula stays soft and creamy for blending (about 30 seconds), then dries down to a long-lasting finish that WILL NOT budge.’
‘blackest-black matte’ is right. Perversion is known to be one of the darkest black eyeliners there are on the market. Just look at the swatch below. Continue reading
This is the second time I’m reviewing a shade from the Sephora Cream Lip Stain line – the other product I reviewed was Aways Red, which is now my HG red. It is wonderfully pigmented, it lasted forever and is not horrendously expensive.
Infinite Rose is USD13 and SGD13 at Singapore Sephoras. Infinite Rose is described as ‘satin golden peach’. ’A lip stain that provides beautiful, long-lasting color. This high-coverage lip product features avocado oil for a texture that transforms as you wear it: when applied, the initial cream texture becomes a silky, lightweight stain. Lips achieve stunning color and feel soft and comfortable.’ Continue reading
I’m actually using hair product. I never use hair product, but yep, I now own (and apparently, use) wax.
So today’s look is somewhat punk inspired; smoky purple eyes and rosy pink lips. Continue reading

A few days ago, I discovered the site Dolls Kill. They have the most amazing clothing (with amazing prices) but were having a sale on their black pieces for before Black Friday. They claimed that the discounts would be even higher than the ones that would be for Black Friday.
I have fallen in love with the site.
I have fallen in love with the absolute creativity and character of the various pieces they have. They’re well-constructed and beautifully designed, you can see just how ever piece is something special.
So even though the items I bought weren’t black, they had black counterparts, and the ridiculous discounts still applied to them. (I’m still not sure how it works out.) I placed my order on Wednesday, and my package arrived today. (It was shipped from San Francisco, DHL express is magic like that.)
So introducing the Keeper’s Dress (in purple paisley) and the Industrial Mesh Lace Hooded Vest (in olive). Just look at those fabrics and the details. It cost a lot yeah, but these are quality clothes, which are increasingly difficult to find with all the cheap fashions today.
I’m going to have to tailor the dress because it’s just slightly too large, but I cannot wait to wear it. <3

Terrible photo of my makeup – I didn’t have time for closeups before I left my room today. I used my Laura Mercier Artist’s Palette for Eyes, Urban Decay Perversion 24/7 Glide Eyeliner and Sephora Infinite Rose Cream Lip Stain (and the latter two products are amazing by the way, I’ll be writing up a review on them soon. The lip colour lasted me for six hours, through a greasy breakfast and only came off with lunch while the eyeliner stayed on without thinning or smudging).
I did not go out meaning to buy anything I swear. It was just supposed to be a trip to the movies (Catching Fire is absolutely awesome and you should most definitely watch it), and the boyfriend wanted to shop for shirts. It didn’t matter than Sephora was having a 20% sale because there wasn’t anything I particularly wanted, and I was not looking for a new pair of shoes. Continue reading
Not that I celebrate Thanksgiving. But these were bought under life threatening conditions over Thanksgiving weekend at a Sephora surrounded by rabid shoppers (but of course, 40% off is no joke). I didn’t get a discount on my stuff, but I’m saving a substantial amount for my products since they’re bought in the US and stowed in a checked in luggage, rather than buying it in Singapore. These are all items that I can purchase in Singapore, but I just can’t bring myself to because of expensive markups. I’ve saved about SGD70 from not buying them in Singapore.
So here are my products:
- MAC Viva Glam I Lipglass
- MAC Viva Glam I Lipstick (I’d actually wanted it in the Stroke of Midnight collection which comes with a free pouch but they sold out)
- Laura Mercier Artist’s Palette for Eyes (this is from the 2013 holiday collection, which is sold out in Singapore if I’m not wrong. I got the last palette from that department store <3)
- Urban Decay Perversion 24/7 Glide Eyeliner
- Sephora Infinite Rose Cream Lip Stain
- NARS Oasis Blush (which I have been eyeing for the longest time)
