Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Review (Soft Matte Foundation & Mattemoiselle Lipstick)

Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Review (Soft Matte Foundation & Mattemoiselle Lipstick)

Hey lovlies!

When I heard that Rihanna came out with her own beauty line, I was super ecstatic about it! Though it did take me a while to get some of her products, I knew I’d buy them any day now!

About a month ago, I bought her Pro Filt’r foundation and the mattemoiselle matte lipstick!

Pro Filt’r Foundation (shade 190)

It’s always tricky buying the right shade foundation when you can only buy it from online. Good thing that Sephora has the “Shade finder” option on their site, so when I inputted the details, I got the shade 190. I was a bit skeptical when I got 190 because on the page, it already looked quite fair compared to my skin tone but for some reason, I thought it’d work anyway.

The foundation claims to be long-wearing and has a soft matte finish, which from my experience of using it, is mostly true. It does have a nice soft matte finish and feels very lightweight on the skin, however, it is not as long-wearing. It’s still great and stays put for like a good 5-6 hours, but perhaps not your trusty old foundation that would stay all day.   The coverage is medium and a second application might be needed if you need a full coverage.

So anyway, back to the shade, though it is a little fair for my skin tone, I find that it oxidizes pretty well into my skin and doesn’t look too unnatural. However, just to be safe, especially if I am wearing it at night, I mix it with my Nars foundation, which is a little darker for my skin tone (given by a friend). With this combination, I can make it work and I’ve been loving it! Also, overall, it is of great value for its price, you really get a good deal!

Mattemoiselle Matte Lipstick (Candy Venom)

When I saw this color on Fenty’s instagram page, I so wanted to get it! Lately, I’ve been loving this fuschia pinkish purple tones a lot! I’m so glad I got this because it is a really gorgeous color! I think this is the type of color that will suit almost anyone!

I love everything about this lipstick, the pigmentation of the color, the soft matte finish that doesn’t crack your lips and how you can easily touch up without worrying about caking it on your lips! Besides applying all over my lips, I sometimes like to dap a little to give my lips this lovely light pinkish color, which looks so nice too!

I love the sleek design and though it looks nice from afar, the material is a little plastic-y and the product itself is quite small and almost has no weight. I’m not sure if this is a good or a bad thing but for me, it’s just something about the lipstick that I don’t really mind. Even though I haven’t tried out all the lipstick shades, I would really recommend this color!

I realize that my pictures of the lipstick don’t do justice to the product and I can’t take nicer pictures of it anymore because my mum took it (she loves the color too), I’ve attached some pictures from the site to give you guys a closer look at the packaging if you haven’t already seen it!

Anyway, here are some pictures of me wearing the foundation and the lipstick on the day of my friend’s wedding!

Innisfree Green Tea Skincare Review

Innisfree Green Tea Skincare Review

Hey lovelies!

I’m doing a little skincare review because I know that some of you guys are following me because of my previous posts about beauty & makeup and because… I want to (main reason).

I’ve tried the Innisfree Green tea line before and I remember loving their Green tea seed cream, which is a very refreshing moisturizer. Since I really needed a new moisturizer because my old one wasn’t helping with the dry patches on my cheeks, I decided to pick up the same moisturizer I had. But of course, it would be a crime if I didn’t pick up some extra goodies along the way.

  1. Innisfree green tea balancing cream

The last moisturizer I got was the green tea seed cream and this one is just the green tea balancing cream. I asked the sales lady what the difference was and she said the “seed” part, which meant the green tea seed provided more intense moisture to the skin. She also recommended the “seed” one for dry skin. As I have oily/combination skin, I went for the normal green tea cream, which I can use as every day, day-time cream.

So far, I’ve been loving it. The cream feels silky smooth and glides very nicely. It has a very fresh smell to it and gives a slight radiant glow to the face. It works really well with my foundation too. I no longer have dry patches on my cheeks and my face feels quite smooth throughout the day.

Overall, it’s a good moisturizer for normal/ everyday use!

2. Innisfree green tea seed eye cream

I’m almost in my mid-twenties and I have to be honest, I’m starting to feel a little worried about ageing lines and wrinkles. I know that any skincare fanatic/expert will tell you that eye cream is soooooo important (along with other things too) but I have to admit that, this is actually my FIRST EVER EYE CREAM! Until now, I’d never felt the urge to get one. Anyway, I’d heard quite good stuff about this one from Innisfree so I thought I’d give it a try.

This eye cream is especially for nourishing the eye area. I’m not quite sure whether it does more like minimizing fine lines, helping with the eyebags & dark circles but it is a good eye cream to begin with if you just need something for the eye area. The texture of the cream, like its other green tea products, is very silky and smooth. I use it daily at night before I go to bed.

Overall, I would definitely recommend it for beginners like me! Though, I do realize that I need something more for my eyebags & dark circles.

3. Innisfree green tea seed serum


This serum is a top seller of Innisfree and I can tell why so many people love it. It does what it claims to be, to provide a dewy and clear skin from deep within. I think it has somewhat helped with my redness too.

It’s a liquid-y formula that gives the face instant nourishment after washing the face. What I like about it the most is how well the product is absorbed by the skin and it’s a great feeling afterward. I really like using this at night by slowing massaging and patting it on my face after I’ve cleansed my face. Also, one pump is enough. The next morning, I guarantee that your face will feel very smooth. I would totally recommend this from the green tea line!

I really think that sometimes we tend to forget that our face is the most exposed skin, which is why we need to give it extra attention. Also for me, one way to get myself into caring for my skin is by getting new products that’ll get me excited! I know this is not a good reason, but for now it works! Perhaps in the future, I’ll find a legitimate skincare routine that I’ll swear by but really… for now this works for me!

If you can relate to me, get yourself some new skincare goodies! It’ll make you excited about washing your face more often!

Have you tried any of Innisfree green tea products? What are your thoughts? Would love to hear them!!!

Beautifully Bold

Beautifully Bold

There’s always something to learn from what you capture…

Unknowingly it was a full moon on this day and I couldn’t help but admire in awe. I also especially realised how long it’s been since I took a moment to look up and just appreciate… what’s being given.

The moon was a perfect round and a burnt golden yellow.

And in that moment, I could see its full beauty without a trace of timidness yet it still carried itself with complete modesty.

And that’s when I learned, being all that you can offer…. and that being bold is a beautiful thing.

Hope you guys enjoyed my little sharing. Stay bold & beautiful!

Spring Favs<3: Makeup Haul

Spring Favs<3: Makeup Haul

Hey Lovelies!

The warmer weather is in and it’s floral season! I have been trying some new make-up products and I am loving each and every one of them! So, here I am sharing my thoughts & briefly reviewing them, thus, perhaps you would like to try them out too!

1. Etude House- Cleansing TissueI’ve been using this cleansing tissue since the first time I tried them! It’s been almost a year and I am always going back to repurchase this. Before this, I was using the Neutrogena Make-up remover that was so raved about by beauty bloggers. Though it was amazing, I was looking for a cheaper alternative since I was using them everyday. This etude house one was the perfect one! Reasonably priced for 50 wipes, no smell of chemical and it feels like water! It even takes off waterproof & stubborn make-up and after using it, my face always felt squeaky clean!

2. Etude House- My Beauty Tool

My Beauty Tool is a facial cleansing brush that helps deep-clean the face. Slightly wet the brush and swirl it over your face with your face cleanser. It works very well with foam facial cleansers and really helps to gently exfoliate too!

The brush is very soft and it’s so satisfying to the skin! Whenever I use this, my skin just feels rejuvenated & extra refresh! Give it a try for some more deep cleansing and fun when washing your face!

3. Etude House- Color My brows

I recently changed my hair color to a lighter brown, so I needed my eye-brows to match my hair. I picked this product to tint my eyebrows lighter brown and it does great at that! Because of it’s waxy, thick consistency, it helps to tame my brows in place as well!

4. Evian- Facial Spray

This facial spray was a random purchase, however, it is totally a necessity if you live in humid, hot or dry places. I used this on some drier winter days to give my face some moisture and in the humid days to refresh my skin! This spray is now with me wherever I go!

5. Etude House- Look at My eyes Eyeshadow (RD305) & Inglot Eye Makeup Base (01)

I have been seeing some beautiful coral reddish one shade eye shadow looks lately! I don’t have an eyeshadow of this color and so I was excited about testing this out! I had also heard good reviews on the Inglot eye primer and I had never tried any Inglot products, so it was a first for me from that brand and I have to say, I was impressed!

The color payoff of the eyeshadow was beautiful! Very pigmented, buttery & it gave such a beautiful sheen under the sunlight.

The eye primer has a creamy texture and it instantly dissolves into the skin when applying it. It has a neutral shade that does show any color, thus it’s a good primer for all skin tones!

It seems that I mostly reviewed Etude House products but I can’t help it if it’s one of the cosmetics stores closest to me! Opps!

Anyway, I hope you enjoyed reading my short reviews of some of these beauty products I have newly discovered and loving for a while! I would love to hear your thoughts if you have used any of these products!

Until next time lovelies!

Shopping Spree: Zalora Review!

Shopping Spree: Zalora Review!

Hey lovelies,

Hope everyone of you had delved into the holiday season and took time off to spend more time with friends and family.

Today, I want to share my Zalora shopping experience. It’s my second time shopping at Zalora, which is an online shopping website that caters to both women and men and sells a wide range of fashion brands, selling clothing, footwear and accessories (I’m sure most of us know Zalora already!). They sell trendy pieces and there are new items almost everyday, every minute! They also a lot sales going on and their prices start from very affordable to more depending on the brand. If you are looking for an additional discount code then use the code BAPQFCX  for 15% off your order!

One thing I love about Zalora is its shipping policies, they provide free shipping to Hong Kong and many other countries, including 30 day free return, which is the main reason I can confidently shop!

I bought 5 clothing pieces for less than HK$600, which is actually quite a bargain. I ordered them more than a week ago and as the website is such a fast-pace platform that is constantly updated, I cannot find urls or pictures for most of these items (they are probably sold out :().

  1. Oversize Contrast Jacket

I am all for furriness and coziness for the winter so when I saw this jacket, I instantly needed it. I also loved the white and suede brown contrast, however, I really wished it had side pockets that would make this even more perfect!

This is a picture of the jacket (size M) taken myself and it is almost identical to the one posted in their webpage, so I was very glad. The only thing was the color, it was more of a darker brown but I guess it is understandable because lighting really makes a difference. Overall, I was still very content with it. I loved it but I felt that it didn’t fit me as rightly as I wanted it. Though, the quality is amazing for its price range and is true to picture, I am thinking of returning it just cause it doesn’t quite suit me as I expected.

If you are interested in checking it out, just click here.

2. Draped Mini Dress

This mini dress (size M) was the piece I was most excited for! It has a simple plain back but the front is draped with a cross slit in the front. I really loved it but the only problem was with the length. As you can see in the picture, it can hardly be worn as a mini dress and I am an average 5’5. I really adore the modest necklace and draped design of this dress, which gives you a slimming effect. As much as I love it, I really wish it was a bit longer so I could wear it as a dress.

I’m thinking about getting a Large size, hoping that it would be a bit longer, but I really doubt it. :S It also seems like it has been sold out in the website as I can’t find its link.

Though in the website, it looked fine on the model, on me, it is hardly wearable as a dress. The quality is great but still a bit disappointed cause of its length. I will definitely be returning this piece.

3. Love Metallic Top Dress

This is another simple cocktail dress that I ordered without much expectation, however, I was very happy with it! The top is a sheen metallic light-weight fabric and the bottom skirt is made of a thicker material that hugs the lower body just right and has a silky finish to it. Very comfortable and stretchy material!

Here’s a close-up I took and as you can see, there are tiny speckles of metallics on the top. Though this was a size M, it was slightly bigger on me, however, I feel like I can still work with it and will be keeping it!

4. Tyra Loose Fit Sweater

This was my favourite purchase of everything I got! I absolutely love the softness of this sweater and the fur do not shed or easily fall off as well! Keeps you very warm and cozy! I got this in the size M and it is one of those oversized ones, where it is slightly bigger but I love it that way! I also love how it is short in the front and longer at the back that covers your bum just right, making it perfect to pair with high-waisted jeans. Trust me I have been wearing this non-stop since I got it!

It seems that this cozy steal is also not in stock anymore because I cannot find the link for this. 😦

5. Midi- Turtle Neck knit dress

I was looking for a nice turtle neck sweater but I couldn’t find what I was looking for but I saw this and I thought, I can multi-wear it as a sweater or as a sweater dress. It is a one-size fit all and I think it can fit a lot of sizes as the material is quite stretchy. It also hugs your whole body tightly so your curves are emphasized. However, it is a bit transparent so you have to wear something inside.

Personally, I cannot wear this alone and I have to pair it with a jacket of another color or a scarf, just to bring in some color. I love it nonetheless and will definitely be keeping it as a winter wardrobe essential!

Check it out here!

Overall, I love Zalora without a doubt because of its very convenient and easy way of shopping! My order took literally less than a week to arrive! I am completely sold on the price range, delivery services and even payment services as it is one of the few online shops that offer cash-on-delivery, so even if you do not have a credit card or do not want to use it, they offer this amazing low-risk cash-on-delivery service, where you pay when the items are delivered to you! It is always such a great experience shopping in Zalora and if you are based in Hong Kong, I really recommend them if you want to online shop. Totally no risk, easy, fast & great variety!

What were your favourite pieces? Have ever shopped at Zalora? I would love to hear your shopping experience in Zalora!

It’s that time of the year…Gift Shopping!

It’s that time of the year…Gift Shopping!

Hey Lovelies,

It’s that time of the year again, personally my favourite time of the year! It’s getting extremely cooler each day in HK and tomorrow is expected to be the coldest of this year, so I’m pretty bundled up for that already!

Besides staying warm in the cold & cuddling up, I really enjoy shopping at this time of the year for my loved ones, friends & family & of course treats to myself. So, I thought I would share a little gift guide or more like a head start on finding the perfect gift for yourselves and our close girlfriends!

  1. Accessories// Make-up // other Cutesy Stuff!

We girls definitely love accessories & makeup all year round, so why not give a classic or a totally funky piece as gift to add to her collection.  She will thank you when styling with her basics!


2. A pretty//handy Wallet

Does not have to be designer but something chic for her to carry around or carry as a clutch on its own!

prada wallet

3. A book novel// journal// scratch book

The year photo book is such a cool concept! How fun would it be to look back on all those memories! Any novel or journal that inspires, motivates & encourages will be a perfect fit!


4. Flats// Shoes

For this one you would obviously need to know their shoe size, but how nice would it be to receive a nice pair of flats, heels or any shoe? I especially love these Tory Burch flats, so elegant but effortless that goes with any outfit!


5. Camera// Polaroid// photo-related

I’m the kind of girl who’s into photography, new camera accessories & gadgets and I’m sure I’m not the only girl! This camera has been in my wish-list for so long…. I’m always debating whether I need a new camera or not… Still debating. If you know someone who’s into photo-taking, videography, then a handy camera or camera accessories would be amazing as a gift!


Which gift would you like to receive this holiday? Share with me your holiday wish list! Have fun shopping & have a very warm & sweet holiday!

Lip kit by Kylie: Thoughts

Lip kit by Kylie: Thoughts

Hey lovelies!

I heard that the new lip kit by Kylie was a sold out within an hour or so! Not that I witnessed it because I had no idea she was out with her lip range, but as many of us may have already seen or heard about the Kylie Jenner lip challenge, which was somehow notorious, you might be interested. The lip kit actually, (I can’t believe I’m saying this to someone I don’t really want to say much about), but it looks quite nice.

She has come out with 3 neutral, nude shades: Candy K, Dolce K & True Brown. (Pictures retrieved from the official website)




Candy K & Dolce K looks very similar indeed but in the swatches they vary in deepness of the color. Candy K is a lighter nude and Dolce K is a bit darker. True brown is simply a lavish chocolate brown, very true to its name. I really wanna try Candy K!!!


Each kit comes with the liquid lipstick that finishes matte & its lip liner, retailing for $29 USD. I guess it’s pretty reasonable considering it is marketed as higher brand and you actually get 2 products in the set. I love the packaging! It’s pretty unique!


As stated in its website, the formula for these lipsticks are liquid when applied and then dries down to a powdery soft matte finish. I’m guessing it may be very similar to the NYX Soft matte lipsticks but perhaps more long-lasting so that it’s worth it in its retail value.

It seems that Kylie worked on it for a while and I’m glad to see her do something with her fame. I’m sure there are so many dupes and what not that has already been in the market but even if it is selling off of her name, at least she is doing something for her own namesake!

What are your thoughts on the new Lip Kit by Kylie? Did you get a chance to try them or would you try them out?

Would love to hear ya’all lovelies thoughts on it.
