MAC Matte Lipstick: All Fired Up


Let's break down the good and the bad of MAC All Fired Up lipstick:

Tiger Print Tee & Zara Printed Jeans



My Style: Voluminous Hijab

I've been wearing the hijab for two years and a half now. I'm surprised to discover i don't dislike wearing it; i actually genuinely like adorning it, and i enjoy the feeling of having it on.

I don't experiment much with hijab styles, as i like to play around other things that make up my outfit. Right now i'm sticking to one style, one that i feel comfortable in and look good in (we can agree to disagree, of course).

My face shape is this really well-rounded oval, so i've applied the same concept to my hijab style as i did to my hair in my hijabless days: the bigger and the more voluminous, the better!



Current Beauty Regime: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser, L'oreal Anti-shine Icy Gel with Embryolisse, Vichy, Nivea and Shu Uemura

Hello hello!

I don't usually discuss about beauty products since i don't test out that many of them but i think it would be a good idea to share the ones i've been sticking to for the past few years.

My 27-year-old skin data are basically:

- combination to oily; my face feels tight after cleansing but would turn oily after a while on the T-zone
- prone to little spots around forehead and chin; not too often though
- prone to nasty bumps along cheekbones; this only developed two years ago after i used an anti-aging range from a respectable brand
- blackheads on the nose and around it
- unknown skin condition where super tiny bumps form in random spots around my face and cannot be removed (note: looking around for a supergood dermatologist that won't cost a lot to check this out)

My skin has been very nice to me lately and it is because of the products i list down below. Unlike before, i'm now quite the loyal product user; once i know it works well on my skin, i try not switch to anything else as my skin really doesn't like being a guinea pig! 
Here are my favourite products for throughout my day.

Fabulous European Makeup & Beauty Brands I Tested In Paris and Loved

10 months in Europe, and i have to say, they were probably the best 10 months of my life so far. 

Sure, there had to be some give and take. I had to spend 10 months without my Mommeeyh and Dedi, my siblings (who just proved yet again that they could be medicine to flu) and my nephew whom i am crazy in love with. Plus 3 months into staying in Europe, i got a niece too, and now i'm crazy in love with her too.

But at the same time, i also got to spend some serious quality time with my husband, whom i crazily adore and who is my most favouritest everest person in the world. Shah and i managed to do some of the famed Euro-trip (we didn't get to go to Scotland, Greece, Monaco, etc. oh oh half sadface) and had the best time evah (and we went to Disneyland like 50 times. we still want more).

Anddd, of course, there's that whole point of me writing up this post: makeup and beauty stuff found in Europe!

Here i present to you the brands that i tried and loved and wish they were available here in Malaysia:


Red Lipsticks Galore!

Here are my current favourite red lipsticks, with their swatches:

Lip Stain + Simple Smokey Eyes

This idea of  lip stain involves a pigmented lipstick, a lip brush, a couple of tissues and a few cotton buds.

Lately i've been into lipstick that's barely there, and i call it "homemade" lip stain. This is an example of how it looks like:
