Bellabox (July Edition)

As you girls would have known, the cosmetic samples packed in a box and delivered right to your doorstep have been pretty popular recently, and Bellabox had aroused my curiousity…so, I’ve decided to take up a 3months subscription, with the first month June edition of Bellabox at $9.95 while on normal days, it will be at $19.95.

The thing about Bellabox is that these subscription boxes are delivered by Ta-q-Bin where they deliver right to your doorstep which can be convenient for some and non-convenient for some as these delivery timings are usually irregular despite the fact that you have chosen your preferred delivery time frame. Still, I managed to receive my Bellabox eventually.

There’s this month, July’s Bellabox!

Unboxing Bellabox!

This is the best part of receiving Bellabox because you won’t know what you would be receiving this month as each Bellabox version is different and you could receive items that are slightly different from what is as advertised. This could be something bad if the items that are advertised caught your eye and they aren’t included in the Bellabox, you’ve received. This was what happened when I received this month’s…

“La Petite Parisienne”– The theme for this month’s box.

Here’s what I received for this month!

I was kind of disappointed that I didn’t get to receive the lipstick and the eye pencil that was advertised!

A total of 8 samples which my box include mainly of masks and L’oreal Sulphate-Free Shampoo and Conditioner. Since they are in sample size the shampoo and conditioner would come in handy to be packed in my luggage at the end of my this month for travelling!

Nina Ricci perfume in sample size, what a tiny weeny sample of 5ml of perfume!

I have yet to try these samples as I’m kind of lazy to do reviews but I shall start soon before the next month Bellabox comes in and I would end up with too many reviews to be done…still, I guess I would cancel the subscription at the end of August because I’m kind of disappointed that the items in my Bellabox are slightly different from what the beauty bloggers receive as they seemed to be receiving better items than me. This did not just happen to me but to several people I have known as well. Oh wells x

Dita Von Teese Inspired!

I have been very into Burlesque moves lately ever since watching the movie- Burlesque with the gorgeous Christina Aguilera when she was skinny.

Image

Now, I’ve got this huge admiration with Dita Von Teese. She’s a burlesque dancer, she’s beautiful, gorgeous and a very amazing woman, I have to say. I love her burlesque moves especially, it’s fascinating!

Anyway, I got bored and attempted to re-create the burlesque dancers make-up look because their eyes looks gorgeous and those red lips, really melts me so much that I couldn’t stop myself from loving it.

ImageSo here’s the geeky looking me with my fake specs before makeup!

Image ImageSome collages that I did!

Image

Some awkward and weird pose that I did! xD

Image

My eyes sure look big enough!

Image

Pretending to be cute hehehe! ^^

Image

Image

I love this one so badly! It looks so nice haha!

Image

The what’s up look!

Image

Did somebody just gave me a tight slap? Ouch! 😛

ImageImageImage

I need a tough love…wooohooo!

Image

Drown me with alcohol baby!

ImageImage

In attempt to be elegant and graceful! Haha! Weird combi!

ImageImageImage

Lip biting! Delish~

Image

Come here baby!

Image

Pretty shot! hahaha!Image

The bad girl look! I’m so loving this one!

Image

 Ending it off with a sweet girl smile!

I think prefer to smile! Haha~

So what do you all think of my look?

How is the naughty and sultry burlesque look? 

The Cool and Awesome Nail Art!

I’ve been bored during the holidays so meanwhile, to kill time, I decided to do some manicure using scotch tape!

It’s so simple and so cool! 

Of course, excluding the time spent on doing it, the end results is just WOW!

ImageThis is my left hand! Look at all the different designs on my nails! I love the ones on my thumb and pinkie!

Image

This is my right hand! Look at the heart shape on my thumb! SO CUTE!

Well, it’s pretty easy to learn how to do it, all you need is lots of plenty time and scotch tape or any sticky tape that you have and scissors! 

Just paint the base layer first, for me I painted my base glittery black! After which when the base coat is dried, just stick the scotch tape on your nail and paint the non-covered part with another colour of your choice! For me I had it painted blue!

When your nail is just dried, just remember to seal it off with a top coat! VOILA you’ve got beautiful nails like mine! Hehe 😀

 

A New Haircut, Perhaps?

I’m so sick of my mid length hair that is growing way too slowly and I realized that as my hair grew longer, I lose more hair which didn’t happen to me back then until I started hair-dye and 4 months of weekly hair-gelling for school (I’ve stop the hair-gelling already, but my hair keeps on dropping!).

Perhaps I should snip off my hair again? I don’t know, I really want a nice long hair but it’s too unhealthy and it keeps on dropping which really worries me because I’m afraid of the widening of hairline.

Image

 

This is my current length of my hair and because I often tie my hair in a bun at home, my hair has become relatively wavy and I have done some inner highlights at the salon months ago and I really love them because the copper blonde looks really good! If I were to cut my hair, my inner highlights will be gone as well. 😦

Also, my fringe are slightly overgrown and out of shape that I have to resort to pinning them up occasionally

I dunno if I should cut my hair, and if I should, what sort of hairstyles would suit my face? My face seems to be very long but it can’t be considered to have that “oblong” face shape because I don’t have really sharp jaws and neither does my face fall into the “oval” face shape category. This really gives me a headache on which hairstyles or haircuts would actually suit my face the best.

Anyway, I have found some decent hairstyles and cuts that I really like which makes me kind of indecisive…

Image

This one has a really nice and tidy shape where the length of the hair meets the jaw and gives it some slight contours and the bangs really do make the face look slightly smaller. 

Image

This one is a slightly longer version of the hairstyle above.

Image

This one is a very simple shoulder length hairstyle with over-grown bangs, I’m in favour of the length but not the bangs because it would really irritate my eyes though…

Image

This one has side fringe and it sure looks good too!

I really can’t decide what to do with my hair, seriously. Everyone says that I look weird with layered bangs, look cute with bangs, look pretty with side fringe and I have no idea what should I decide on…

Damn, deciding on a haircut is so troublesome!

The hottest lip color this season!

IT’S REDDD!!!

Image

Whether is it, chilli red, bright red, dark red, maroon or wine red, basically all shades of red makes the cut this season except pinkish red!

The colour red is the representation of passion and intensity. And well, it’s the colour that will suit many skin types whether you are dark, tanned or fair.

Most importantly, it will bring you the radiance on your face and will be so suitable for any occasion especially red carpets, important dates and dinners!

ImageMy favourite singer, Taylor Swift wearing red lip colour!

She’s always been carrying this sweet and girly look with the girly vibe in her and usually her lip colours were pink or neutral shades like nudes. This time, you could really see her wearing red on her lips because RED is the hottest lip color this season!

Image

A deep shade of red which is my favourite!!!

First time wear red on my lips!

What do you girls think?

Silkygirl & Maybelline Lipsticks Review!

Ok, so maybe reds have been a very popular colour this season for 2013, but nonetheless, I’ve been overly obsessed with nude lips!!!

I think that nude lips look so much sexier than red although I know that red is more of a turn on…

Still, I couldn’t stop my urge and got myself 2 new nude coloured lipsticks!

So, first, I’lll be reviewing the Maybelline WaterShine Diamond Lipstick #301!

Maybelline HyperCurl Volum’ Express Waterproof Mascara Review!

I have always loved  Maybelline Mascara for its affordability and it’s dry formula! So here I have today is the Maybelline HyperCurl Volum’ Express Waterproof Mascara in blackest black!

I know the name of this mascara is so so so so so LONG! Still from the name you would know that it is suppose to be:

  • Waterproof!
  • Gives you volume!
  • And curls!
  • Very black lashes!

Image

The mascara in it’s wrapper!

I got this from Guardian drugstore in Malaysia, my city, Kota Tinggi!

Image

Really nice and pretty gorgeous container that SHINES!

Image

Just opened the mascara! Look at the brush!

It’s curved!!!

Image

Close up of the brush!

Do you know that curved brushes are better than straight ones because they are more convenient and easier for application? It also helps in evening out of your eyelashes during application! This means PLUS POINTS FOR THE LASHES!

Image

My eye AFTER application!

Bottom down shot of my eyes and lashes! 

Can you spot the difference between my eyes?

So, asian eyes have been known for having sparse eyelashes as compared to caucasian’s eyes where they are blesses with thick eyelashes…SO ENVIOUS!

Still, I’ve decided to get a volumizing mascara so that my eyelashes will not look pathetically sparse and short! And the results have shown! The left eye from the above picture is without applying Maybelline HyperCurl and the right is after application! Great difference right?!

I’m so loving the new mascara despite it causing my eyelashes to clump slightly…Anyway I love it!

What do you girls think?
