NYX

30 Apr

So I found this sitting in my draft for months now. Decided to quickly finish it up and publish it. So here’s my very quick swatch and review. p.s. I just purchased more NYX lipglosses. Excited for their arrival! 

 

Hi all,

So here’s some goodies and swatches from my NYX haul.

First up: Triple Eyeshadow in Spring Lead/Limegreen/Greentea

& the swatch

I just applied it on with my fingers. NYX eyeshadows have really good pigmentation.

Love it!

Now for the lip colours

Cover Girl Lip Stains! They’re like marker pens. You just draw and smudge it on. Smells nice and you can build how pigmented you want the colour to be.

NYX Round Lipstick in Hero (a deep red colour)

NYX Round Lipstick in Tea Rose (a lovely pink colour)

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Stockholm (a pink/nude colour)




And to finish off with that.

Left: With flash. Right: Without flash.

It also helps you compare colour and texture!

Day 4: A Song That Makes You Sad

18 Apr

The school choir sang this (not the best rendition that I’ve heard) at my Form 5 school leavers assembly. Change and moving forward is always difficult to do. We’re afraid of what unknown lies ahead and afraid to leave behind the chapter of our life that we’ve grown so fond and familiar of.

I don’t understand half they lyrics of half this song but isn’t that the beauty of it? A song is so powerful that you can capture the emotions of it. So yea, this song makes me sad, sad because I know that it means that a beautiful chapter has come to an end. At the same time, it reminds me again to be prepared to embrace what lies ahead.

Day 3: A Song That Makes You Happy

17 Apr

Back in middle school after exams, the whole class (of less than 20 students) would just comes to school everyday to hang out. We’d listen to music all day, pretend to be a rock band, play cards and just hang out with not a worry in the world. Things were so uncomplicated. We had no pressure, no worries- nothing  but happiness and that mischief in our spirits. It was most definitely one of the best moments in my life. I’m sure moments like that would be one of the best moments in anyones life.

Also, this is such an awesome song!

Day 2: Your Least Favourite Song

16 Apr

Not that it’s a bad song or that I hate Bieber with a passion but I’m so not a fan of Bieber.

Day 1: Your Favourite Song

16 Apr

So I’ve decided to procrastinate  do this 30 Day Song Challenge from Facebook!

Mixtape by Butch Walker.

One Tree Hill and The OC soundtrack used to affect my choice of music so much last time!

I still love this song though I haven’t heard it in so long.
