Beauty Products I Hate

Saturday, March 25, 2017
I actually don't like to use the word hate but it's part of the idea and I have seen bloggers did this kind of post so. Being someone who is obsessed with beauty products, trying and testing them out means coming across products that I love and "oh so incredible" and also products that I less love that is a no go. So today, I decided to share with you a few products specifically from the drugstore that I hate and I regret buying them.

Disclaimer: this is a hundred percent my honest and true opinion so please don't get offended if you love these products. I'm still new to this type of post. What can I say? Different things work for different people, no? BTW, this post contains endless rants, so please bear with me. 

Catrice Waterproof Eyeliner Pen

OMG. I seriously want this product to work out but no bueno. Okay, first thing first. It's somehow difficult to apply, I mean I had a tough time to achieve my wing liner with this bad boy. It has weird tip to me and it didn't want to work out. The product also doesn't want to come out out of the tube, it seems empty even though I just bought it. I don't know, maybe I got the bad one or the expired one? I don't know. You actually have to press harder to get the product out and that just messes up your whole look.

The eyeliner also has a weak staying power. You know I have a long day at school so I want my liner to stay put throughout the whole day but NAH. It disappears into the thin air. Maybe because I have a greasy eyelid but a lot of waterproof eyeliners I have tried in the past never disappear like that. By the time I reached home and go to the bathroom to like check my face out, the liner is all gone and that's not cute. I just don't have anything positive to say about this eyeliner. It's such a crappy product that dries out too quickly and doesn't want to work out and I don't recommend you guys to grab this eyeliner. Better save your money even though this is not pricey, but better splurge on something that works well. I know IN2IT and Maybelline have quite a number of dreamy eyeliners. Check them out instead and don't buy this.

Revlon Colorstay Shadowlinks

I bought these for about a year I believe. I got them on sale so lots of good deals going on back then BUT these are just the worst. It's not just I'm not getting any pigment but they are just too chalky, sheer and tough to blend. It has a very rough texture, it's weird. Once you get the product on your eyes, every single colors will look the same. They have a very low staying power too. It stays on me for like couple of hours and then they start to fade. It's such a turn off, am I right? I wouldn't recommend any of these because they are just not that great in quality. I really wished it has a creamy texture and melts into your skin type of texture, it would have definitely been a hit for me. Maybelline and Essence have some really creamy and pigmented eyeshadows to try out!

IN2IT BB Makeup Cream 5 in 1

Don't get me wrong, I love the brand, I'm digging their eyeliners, blushers and lip products. They are incredible. But this one is just a no no. It's a BB cream so I expected it to perform very comfortable on the skin, lightweight and easy to blend but it doesn't do any of that. The consistency is pretty thick almost like a foundation and it doesn't want to blend well. I do get a lot of patchiness using this BB cream and it looks terrible and super cakey on some areas. It also accentuates my fine lines and my smile lines after applying for a few minutes and that's not cute, gurl. 

They also carry like 2 or 3 shades in this range which is shitty shade range. Overall, it's not a good BB cream at all, it's a strong pass. I wouldn't recommend to you guys. Go for Maybelline instead. You can't go wrong with Maybelline.

I guess that's all for now. I hope I didn't offend anyone, it's just my opinion and don't you think it's good to actually be honest about the products you love or hate? All in all, I definitely wouldn't repurchase any of these craps and I hope this post helped you any other way!

Has anyone tried any of these products? What are your thoughts about them? And what other disappointing drugstore beauty products would you highlight? Let me know in the comments! x

A List Of My Daily Essentials

Monday, March 06, 2017
I'm actually quite a fan of seeing and reading people's essentials. I don't know, it's fun to me. So I thought I would put together a list of some of my day to day essentials. There are just some things in life that I can't live without. Okay, maybe a little exaggeration is going on over there but seriously I totes would die if I didn't have the following items. Haha! What an exaggeration but as long as you get gist. 

Here's a list of things I use and need every single day of my existence, if you will.

A list of my daily essentials

My phone | Come on, this one is surely other people's first pick too. I seriously can't live without my phone. No but seriously, I'm one of those people who gets anxious if their phone dies in the middle of the day. Gotta need my phone in my everyday life. Plus my favorite persons live in there too.

A 1 litre water bottle | Yes gurl. Otherwise,  I would be super dehydrated and people legit think I'm dying. It's actually a 1.3 litre water bottle that I bought from Tesco - it helps so much.

Notebooks | I'm that person who constantly jotting down notes, thoughts and ideas that pop into my little mind. I just love it. I love to see my beautiful handwriting. #SelfPraise #NoShame

Vaseline lotions | OMG I owned like 4 of them because I can't get enough of their lotion especially the cocoa one. Oh my gosh, it smells SO GOOD. The one I'm currently digging is the aloe vera one because I'm obsessed with everything aloe vera.

Aloe vera gel | No surprise. I really love this and can't go a day without putting this aloe gel on my face before I go to bed.

Some of the things I need. PS: I forgot about the water bottle but whatevs

Lip products | Be it lip balm, regular lipstick or liquid lipstick, I just need them. My natural lip color is so pale and it looks like I'm dying. So I really need an extra help from the lippie department. I seriously can't go my day without wearing any lip products, which is why I have so many in my collection. Haha! 

Perfume | Ahh I just love smelling good. I love smelling good all the time. I have quite a number of perfumes and it's a little bit too much actually but what can I say, I'm obsessed with smelling good all freaking time. My current favorite scent is Someday by Justin Bieber. Oh so good. So good.

My contact lens kit | Need I say more? Gotta have this in everyday life, gurl. It contains a small mirror, contact lens case, contact lems rewetting drops and tissue in it.

And that concludes my list of "shit I need on a day to day basis to actually survive". Now you know the things I can't live without and now it's your turn to tell me what's yours!

What would be in your everyday life essentials? What are the things you can't live without?

Beauty Products I Have Been Eyeing On

Saturday, March 04, 2017
Hello lovely people! I thought it would be fun to talk about some of the beauty products that I have been eyeing on for quite some time. But before that, I would like to apologize for not uploading my Five Things In February mainly because I have nothing to do rather than being a busy bee for the rest of the month. So, sorry 'bout that!

Okay, back on to business. I keep things that I have been lusting on my phone because I always tend to forget things that I want. I have quite a bunch of lists from beauty to stationery. So with that being said, let's get down to business.

Too Faced Born This Way Foundation | I have heard nothing but good reviews about this foundation and I really want to try it out myself. I have been eyeing quite a lot of foundations from the drugstore brand to the more high-end brand and somehow I always go back to this one. This foundation is also oil free which is a winner in my eyes since I have oily skin.

Elf Studio Baked Highlighter | I have seen this baby swatched by a lot of Youtubers and I'm obsessed! It has other few beautiful shades than the one I have linked. I have never used Elf products before but Elf recently stepped up their makeup game - that's what they said. I want to experience it myself. I owned quite a number of highlighters already but I can't get enough of it. Just no. 

Nars Laguna Bronzer | Okay, I'm not the bronzer type of girl. I owned like only 2 bronzers in my collection that I rarely pick up. But this one, gurl. It's so stunning! Sophie (Sophia Chang) really made me want to try this one out. It's pretty much the perfect bronzer - that's what they said. I really need to get my hands on this because my face is seriously need some definition.

Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Color  | Oooh gurl, you don't have any idea how many times I have swatched this on the back of my hand every time I go to the drugstore. It smells SO good! I have watched Judy's review on Youtube and it makes me want to buy it even more but I don't know why I haven't taken the plunge and bought it yet. Maybe because the shade range is just stunning and I want to grab them all but I can't. They even have new beautiful shades! Oh I'm so getting this and will do a review for you guys. 

Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer | I owe it all to Sophie once again. Haha! This is her favorite concealer. I want to try it so bad because the coverage is pretty on point.

NYX Liquid Suede | I have heard amazing things about NYX, especially their lip products. They are highly pigmented and just so you know, Hermo is now carrying these on their website and I might actually buy them. A lot of them. 

Zoeva Brush Set - Eye Set | If I were to get my hands on this brush set, I'm the happiest girl on the planet earth. I have lusted over this for the longest time already. The brushes are so stunning and great quality. Chloe (Chloe Morello) actually love to use Zoeva brushes in a lot of her videos! 

MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lip Color  | I believe this is not-so-new in MAC but I haven't gotten the chance to own any of them yet. I have seen lots of Youtubers reviewed and swatched these babies and I have fallen in love. Jeffree Star reviewed and swatched these liquid lip color recently and I was shook! I want them even more, they are so pigmented and the shade "So Me" is just BEAUTIFUL. The applicator is actually very nice too!

Colourpop Lippie Stix | MY MOST WANTED LIP PRODUCTS. Hands down. I have wanted to get my hands on these for so long! Their Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks are not my cup of tea although they have quite a lot of beautiful shades because it's so very drying. Anyway, a lot of Youtubers raved about this Lippie Stix okay. The shade range is just incredible. The shade "Brink" and "Lumiere" are few of my favorites. You can't go wrong with Colourpop because it's affordable and pretty top notch.

There you have it! I have pretty much a mixture of drugstore and high-end beauty products that I have been lusting. I still have a lot of them but I guess I should stop now because it's going to be a long post and I don't want to bore you guys too much. 

Has anyone tried any of the products mentioned? Aaand do you have beauty products that you have been eyeing on? Let me know! xx

Blogging Slump And How I Get Rid Of It

Wednesday, February 15, 2017

Hi everyone! Oh. My. God. It's been such a long time since I last posted. The past weeks have been quite busy but I also need to admit it was due to minor laziness that this blog went abandoned for quite some time. I might be dramatic but life and school literally has no mercy on me. Really. I had tons of post ideas in my head, but...

  • Life gets in the way. What can I say. Life gets in the way 24/7 and you do know blogging is something that takes time. It take lots of it.
  • Too much pressure. I have to admit that I sometimes feel like I have to blog, as if it were a job or a chore. It just makes the whole thing become less fun. I keep making those "I don't feel like blogging" or "I'm not in the mood today" excuses, you know what I'm saying. This is not a good sign.
  • I feel like I have not good enough post ideas. Although I have tons of them in my head, I keep thinking "Does it worthy to talk about?" or "Will someone actually read it?" until I have come to the level where I overthink about it. It's just a post BTW.
  • Not having enough time. This is legit one of the biggest reasons why I have fallen into a huge slump. Sometimes life gets really busy and when that just continuously happens, there is just not enough time to blog.
Now you know why I have fallen into a big blogging slump. However, there are always ways to escape from the slump and make it up to my dearest blog because I abandoned it. I actually like to...

  • Read blogs that inspire me. For this part, I have to say Bloglovin' is the answer. Haha. Nothing new. Even if I don't feel like blogging, looking at other posts that I like somehow helped me to get my blogging mojo back. Bloggers like Nicole from The Glam Surge, Jasmine from Jasmine Talks Beauty , Erin from Make Erin Over and Erin (again) from Erin Azmir are definitely my huge inspiration! Not only they have the coolest and prettiest theme, they also have tons of killer posts.
  • Take a break. Honestly speaking, taking a break from blogging is 100% okay. Sometimes I get a little too overwhelmed, exhausted and I just don't have the right time. I used to be worried about taking a break from blogging (well, up until now actually), but I don't have to push myself sososooo much. It's very okay to take break.
  • Make a list. Okay this is new. You guys might find this weird but I do list down the things that I love about blogging  in my little notebook because I want to focus and zoom in on the bright side of it. It actually helped me to enjoy blogging once again! I love making lists and once I'm done I will read them over and over until I get all giddy again. Then, and only then my brain can function and blogging again.
  • Try and find new post ideas. If I don't want to work on my drafts, I will simply Google and try to find awesome blog post ideas so that I get inspired and motivated. #GoogleIsMyBestFriend
  • Push myself but not too much. At the end of the day, I still have to push myself a bit too. However, I don't want blogging to become a chore or a hateful reminder of something I have to do. I do pushed myself (like what I'm doing now) but I'm not giving my 100% effort in it. I mean I still have to put up a new content on my blog or else people might think I'm dead.

Have you ever fallen into a blogging slump? How did you escape from it? Tell me in the comments!
