Suffering from hair loss is like suffering from acne. It’s the first thing that people notice about you, and it kills any person’s self confidence without sympathy. You can hide it with concealor and wigs, but it wouldn’t work towards solving the problem. Too many people visit hair specialists for hair fall problems but more often than not, they are presented with the sad truth that nothing will get them their hair back. Here’s why and what you can do about it.
Self-created the aegyo sal with K-Palette’s Real Lasting Tears Tank!
Beauty is ever so fickle. Just like fashion! One moment orange is the “in” colour, the next it’s nude blush (which is my current favourite colour by the way), and then several cycles down, it’s orange again. Let’s take a step into the Korean world of beauty at this point in time.
If you haven’t heard, the Barbie nose is all the rage right now in the streets of Gangnam. At the same time, so is the aegyo sal, which is essentially puffy undereyes. For as long as I’ve known, everyone whom I’ve seen smile has puffy undereyes. But how do we create the look without smiling?
I gave the K-Palette Real Lasting Tears Tank a few tries and decided that this shimmer pen brightens up the undereye area and makes you look younger and more awake!
The Real Lasting Tears Tank contains two ends: one an essence and the other a powder.
I’m going to confess: I think that sex is overrated. If you ask any girl what the most amazing thing in the world is, and she answers sex, then that girl most probably hasn’t experienced much emotion in life, and thus my deep-felt condolences to her. Any well-travelled explorer will tell you the same thing. Or at least, I hope.
In any case, I’m pretty sure no parent would want their 15-year-old daughters going around having their heads filled with notions about fornication and what nots. But that’s exactly what’s going to happen when these innocent minds chance upon the Too Faced Better than Sex Mascara. Sooner than you think, they’d be wondering what sex is all about. That said, I’m not sure anyone’s lashes go crazy after a bout of hardcore humping.
Black Friday is on its way, so of course I’m in the shopping mood. Who isn’t? And what’s this premature holiday-cum-Christmassy aura in the air I breathe? Oooh yes. The time has come for us to spend, spend, spend, shop, shop, shop! It’s all in the name of giving, surely we don’t need to hold back?
I don’t shop much generally, but when I do, it’s major damage. In the post where I wrote about how to save money on makeup, there’s one tip that I feel is the most important when it comes to pulling your purse strings: Always save first and then spend what is left over. Now that we’ve got this piece of advice established, let me share with you my favourite shopping haunts!
I wonder what skin problems mermaids face. Does their skin ever get dry and wrinkled up while they live their entire lives underwater? Ariel can dream of being human all she wants but if she’s got skin like a true reptile, then maybe it’s better down where it’s wetter.
On the other hand, I shudder at the image of the chilling, eerie depths of the ocean, where even the fishes have their own built-in lights so they can see. Maybe being human is better after all. And if you really don’t want scales to go with, especially sometimes after piling your face with so much makeup that your skin goes dry, here’s a product you can and should try – the Vichy Aqualia Thermal Night Spa.
I’m not going to lie; I love this product! I was initially quite apprehensive of trying this nighttime mask out because, well, it’s blue.
If you’ve read The Little Prince and felt that it was such a wonderful children’s book, you need to read it again. I admit, I never made it three quarters through because it gave me a headache trying to understand all those analogies and innuendos. I mean, come on. Baobab trees representing the spread of Nazism? Man, that’s deep. But maybe not as deep as some of the valleys under our sombre eye bags.
Whether the Innisfree Olive Real Eye Cream helps reduce puffiness (under our eyes, where else?), I cannot tell. But that’s only because as a twice-daily eye cream user with good genetics and who loves her beauty sleep, I do not have eye bags. I do, however, suffer from dark circles from time to time, and fine lines have started to show up.
Six glossy shades (out of nine) from the Stila Holiday 2013 Collection of Lip Glazes.
Hello! Have you joined my year-end giveaway? I’m giving 3 out of 9 of the Stila Lip Glazes and here so are the other 6. It’s the first time I’m coming into contact with these glazes and they are surprisingly good!
These Lip Glazes come in sets of threes from the Colour Me Glossy Lip Glaze Set from the Holiday 2013 Collection, so six of them means two sets. When first taken out from the packaging, you’ll find a little protective cover stuck into the tip of the brush. The way the Lip Glazes work is that you have to twist them to get product into the brush. For the very first time, you’ll need to twist them about 18-20 times.
Pink and purple? That’s half the battle won in getting my heart!
Bunions and broken ankles never stopped any girl from slipping her feet into those perfect glass slippers. But my oh my, whatever would Prince Charming say when he sees those ugly blister marks, or worse, a barely hanging on plaster that’s been unchanged for days? The solution? Blistop!
This press sample couldn’t have come at a better time. I’d just bought a new pair of Pedro’s and they were hurting me real bad. I know right, the things we vainpots do to look good. When I read the product description of Blistop, I knew I had to try it. To put the carriage in front of the horse, this product is a godsend and I highly recommend it to every girl out there!
This set of the John Frieda Luxurious Volume range came just in time when I was on the search for something for my hair. My flat, limp albeit healthy hair. It’s fine if my hairdresser says I’m balding in the front – actually I’m really not – but it’s not fine if my hair can’t have its own backbone. While haircuts were some of the worst mistakes in Jim Morrison’s life, mine has got to be not styling my hair enough.
Oh my, where do I get started? 20 brand new shades, glittery, shimmery and matte – all in a brand new, one-of-a-kind palette. The Urban Decay Vice 2 Palette is the latest eyeshadow bomb from the brand, launched in time for the holidays this year. Not only is it limited edition, each and every one of the palette is unique in the sense that the pattern on the purple-hued box is different for every palette. So if you’re one of those shoppers – like me – who tend to pick and choose the “perfect” product to take home with you every time you visit a store, this would certainly justify that.
