Video: Hits and (no) Misses

Posted on 14-09-2014 | Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

So, as I said on the video description, I’m an idiot and forgot to talk about my ‘Misses’ for the month in the Hits & Misses video HAHAha.  One thing about filming is that you can’t even really fix any missed filming opportunities because you’ll look completely different and it wont flow prettily so yeah.  MY BAD.

Thought I’d upload it anyway since it’s still a viable Monthly Favourites video, except I didn’t realise I forgot the ‘Misses’ until I had already uploaded it so yeah LOL.  Hope you guys still like it.  I added a blooper as the intro because I had no other footage… this is what happens when you try to film in the span of the moment mum leaves to pick up the brother from school and the time they get home.

Products Mentioned:
A French Quarter for Your Thoughts – OPI
Good to Go Topcoat – Essie
Acetone-Free Nail Polish Remover – OPI
Volume 02 Mascara – Dolly Wink
Gelpresso Waterproof Eyeliner – Clio
158 Sweet Diamond Coral Beige – Ameli (See my review post)

Illutorial: Natural Bottom Falsies

When you have practically non-existent bottom lashes, it can be hard to get a balanced eye look. I decided to try out some falsies for my bottom lash line, for whatever special occasion. I purchased these cheapo false bottom lashes from Ebay a while back:

I got this pack of 10 for only a couple of dollars (MUCH cheaper than normal – but they aren’t as feathery as the more expensive brands). They looked good on the model, but when they arrived I found that they looked way too unnatural for my tastes.

For a nearly a year I’ve just had them lying around in my draw, going to waste but recently I discovered a way to turn them into wearable, more natural looking lashes!

So instead of the usual step by step worded tutorials/reviews I’m trying out something a little different: introducing Illutorials! Basically, they’re my own little spin on those picture tutorial things you often see in Asian beauty magazines, but I decided to shorten the name to ~Illutorial~ (Illustrated Tutorial). Hope you guys like it (sorry I’m so vain HAHAHa)

Disclaimer: even though it probably looks really photoshopped, it’s mostly my camera settings & good lighting. LOL. Credits to joannastar for the Bokeh stock!

Review & Tips: Ameli Eyeshadows

Posted on 10-06-2013 | Tags: , , , ,

Although I’m going to South Korea very soon, I read/watched a lot of reviews about this online-only brand called Ameli! One of my favourite beauty youtubers, Beautifymeeh talked about the hype over the brand (which I am very late to, btw) so I purchased three from Vanity Box, an Australian-based Korean cosmetic & accessory store.

Vanity Box is actually closing down, so they’re having a clearance right now. Each of these eyeshadows are usually ~$15 from the Korean & US official websites, but I purchased them for $8 each, using the site’s “closing” coupon. I couldn’t stop myself, had to buy them hahaha. They arrived at my door today, a week after ordering.

I purchased 3 colors: #503 Pink Spot, #173 French Chic & #158 Coral Beige. Here’s what was included in my package:

The order was well packed in a solid box, and bubble wrapped – nice change from my usual careless Ebay packages. I was quite surprised to find the little gifts attached, haha. They threw in two cute powder puffs and two Chuppa Chups Yay!

The Ameli box packaging is quite misleading. All the boxes show the same color shadow on the outside, but it does not represent what’s inside the box at all. I’m not that fussed about it though, because I don’t keep the box on anyway.

Inside the boxes are the three shadows:
