6 Lip Pencil | Crayon | Balm | Stain You Should Try

I've never been a huge fan of these stick-like lip products. They occurred to me as just some marketing gimmick to lure people into buying more. I mean, cummon, we already have enough of lipbalms, lipsticks and lipglosses to last for our entire life and which our bank account couldn't cope already with every release and yet, here are these newbies sucking more from our wallet. 

Then, one day, it all changed. I happen to cave into the trend and chance upon the Revlon Kissable Balm Stain when all of a sudden, I'm addicted to this stuff. Subsequently, more "sticks" made into my stash and I've selected 6 of them which I think you should get as they are stupendous.

Below are 3 reasons why these lip products are my favourite thing to wear:

1. They are insanely pigmented. 
~ Like seriously out-of-this-world crazy pigmented. Expect the product to be still there even after hours of talking and eating. Lasted on me for 6 hours. 

2. They are smooth and comfortable to wear. (i.e. Soap&Glory, Revlon, Bellabox)
~ The product doesn't tug and drag on your lips nor do you feel them heavy. Just amazing.

3. They are moisturising. (i.e. Revlon, Soap&Glory)
~ These 2 range has properties such as in lipbalms and sometimes, they do offer a minty sensation to your lips. Maybe to pout your already sexy lips wtf >.<

So, do you have some of these lip products in your stash? Are you going to try them out if you haven't already? What are your thoughts on these type of products? Would love to hear from you ^_^

6 Essential Products in My Everyday Makeup Products/Routine

Chanel, MAC, Givenchy, Clinique, Estee Lauder, Laura Mercier

I always go for something simple and light. Nothing too heavy or cakey on the skin is my epitome of a good makeup routine. Thus, even though I do love collecting tons of makeup, I always go for products as of in the above picture (sometimes I do slap on foundation, depending on my mood though >.<).

The products:
Concealer, Eyeshadow, Mascara, Eyebrow Pencil, Blush and Lip Product

The steps:
1. Apply eyeshadow all over eyelids. Preferably taupe brown (Chanel eyeshadow in picture) or shimmery light colours.
2. Curl eyelashes and sweep on some mascara (MAC mascara in picture).
3. Draw eyebrows with pencil and spoolie (Givenchy brow pencil in picture).
4. Smack on concealer underneath the eyes and centre of forehead (Clinique concealer in picture).
5. Apply blush on the apples of the cheek (Estee Lauder blush in picture).
6. Last but not least, pucker up lips with some lipstick or lipgloss (Laura Mercier lipgloss in picture).

So, there you have it. Although it may seem tons of stuff that I put on on my face (no denying of it) but all these stuff eats up only 10 min of my time. Sometimes if I'm focused enough, it'll take much lesser than said time. Speak about speed drawing.

What products are in your makeup routine? How long do you take to get ready everyday? Leave me a comment as I'd like to know ^_^

3 Reasons to Dine at Lighthouse Bistro | Western Food Near ICA Building

Finally, got round to write this post about the western food that I had for lunch. Its near the ICA building and boy was packed with office-attire-clad people. Not that I'm complaining but I do think this eatery has its charm of attracting customers to dine here.

Thus, I had summed up 3 reasons why you should head down here to have a quick lunch.

 1. The affordable semi-buffet spread with main course

I was quite impressed with the variety and quality of starters at the buffet counter. There's bread, soup, salads and even cold pastas. Not only starters are of buffet form but their fruits and desserts are of free flow too. I am impressed. Not to mention that they taste good as well. A kudos from me. 

2. The food taste good

Sometimes its hard to get tasty western food in Bistros but the chicken chop with potatoes wedges and veg was just up to standard. The accompanying sauce was noticeably good and the wedges just soaked them up, making it fluffy and juicy at the same time. Hard to explain but yummy indeed. 

Look at that sauce.... The piece of chicken was grilled (or was it baked) to... mmm... wouldn't say perfection but still manage to maintain its juiciness and tenderness.  A pleasant dish.

Its nice to see "Tang Shui" (or Chinese Sweet Soup Dessert) in the selection of desserts. Very refreshing indeed. Although its your normal generic kind of cake, but still the variety offered is just satisfying. 

3. Cosy environment

I like how quaint and adequately lit this Bistro is. It has this cool relaxing vibe to it and the service here was good. The waitress/waiter here did not rush me into finishing my food even though I was sitting for nearly 2 hours savouring my food and observing patrons. I really do like to sit here the whole day if I weren't too busy rushing for materialistic stuff.

So, here you go, a brief review of why I think you should give this Bistro a go. If you are interested, head over to their website to see the full menu. And yes, I'm not paid to write this post.
