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!

Lights & Stars

Lights & Stars


Living in the city that’s become hard to spot stars, how I wish I was somewhere where I could look up & count the stars to sleep. But instead this is what I see, a birds-view of city lights. Seeing this, I feel even more blessed. And I remember, serenity is not what’s on the outside but what we feel in the inside.

Throwing a little throwback to the start of my deadline weeks (the end of semester many of us in universities/college can relate!).

Hope everyone else is having good days!

Foodie Day-out!

Foodie Day-out!

Here I am, starting with “it’s been a while since…” but it’s okay, because sometimes, we simply get so caught up in our lives, even if its accomplishing day-to-day things, I guess it’s okay as long as we know our priorities in life (not that my blog isn’t, just that there are other things on top 🙂 )!

Today, I just felt like sharing a bit of my day with you all. Well, it was a public holiday and a Wednesday that day. I love it when there’s a day off in the middle of the week, which means, it’s one day closer to the weekends! Somehow, it ended up becoming a foodie day!

First stop was BLT Burger! I cannot say no to Burgers and Fries, they are literally my favourite kind of food! So, I had this beasty BLT Classic burger with fries and of course coke (because the experience wouldn’t be the same without it). I rarely drink coke but I gotta have it with my burger (Anyone can relate to this?!), so it’s a cheat meal for me! Besides the juiciness and tenderness of the patty, I enjoyed the pickle even more! I absolutely love pickles!!!

And here I am while waiting for our food!

After stuffing ourselves with some delicious burgers, we had to take a stroll to let the food sink in…. and to be honest, we struggled a bit with food coma (that just means we had an awesome meal)! Anyway, right outside the mall, I decided to take an outfit of the day!

Very simply but with a touch of girly-ness! The yellow top that I’m wearing is actually a dress but I decided to wear it as a top by belting it on my waist and folding up the upper half, so that it falls the right length and looks more like a top!

Soon, it was evening and time for dinner, so we decided to hit up our favourite Nepalese restaurant in Jordan, called “Street Food”. The dumpling in the picture is called momo and as much as it looks like any typical Chinese dumpling, it actually isn’t much alike! Momo is a very popular dish in Nepal and there are so many different kinds. Every Nepali loves their momos! The one in the picture is buff momo and the restaurant specializes in it. This is truly one of the best momo I’ve ever tried in Hong Kong! So, if you ever want to try one of the best momo in Hong Kong, then definitely go here!

With good food in my belly, it was a very content day and a day-off well spent! Comment below if you’ve ever tried momo or would love to!

Talk to you lovelies soon! 🙂
