Random Ranting : This blog is still alive

Assalamualaikum pretty ladies!

It's been a long time since I actually updated this blog, I'm sorry, I'd usually schedule a few posts but unfortunately, with the circumstances I currently am in, I was unable to do that. I wanted to make a few of those blogging tags running around the beauty bloggers, but I haven't found the time to get on with those yet.

Firstly, if you have my Instagram, you would have noticed that my laptop is dead, it is pretty much dead. Somehow, I managed to fry the motherboard. Out of all things to fry, sigh, I can sense that my following payout will go towards into fixing my laptop. Some people might say that I just have to buy a new laptop but fortunately my friend, who I deemed to be my own personal laptop technician, advised me that I can buy a new motherboard and replace it with the current motherboard. 

So, I'm planning to purchase a motherboard for my baby Strawberry (yes, I called my lappy that) also a new hinge or maybe a new monitor. It really depends on the situation, I need to ask for advice from my friend. I'm currently using a friend's laptop, which I am thankful of him, as I think this is a pretty big favor I've asked of him. Though, I'm borrowing his laptop only for assignments purposes. I've already finished my assignment, the exam fever is looming ahead.

But don't worry, I've managed to upload the pictures I need for my blog posts and I can write up reviews using my iPad. Thank goodness. But I might post some of them in Mid-May? I guess. But thanks for some of my new followers even I haven't updated in weeks.

Just follow me through Instagram as there is where I'll post up pictures and write up a mini review for products that I currently use.

FOTD : What I wore to school

Assalamualaikum pretty ladies!

Back with not just one, but two FOTDs for you pretty ladies. I'm a bit lazy when it comes to taking pictures of myself and post FOTDs into my Instagram or anything. I'm not sure about my OOTDs though, not sure if anyone is interested in my OOTDs but if you girls do, just comment below, I'll see what I can do.



Anyways, picture above, I actually made this look when I reached into my class/lab, so I was bare-faced when I was going into the school compound, LOL! Anyways, it's a soft smokey blue look, but you can't really see the blue as it is soft. I was going to go for bare-faced the whole day but my skin decided to not be ready for the whole thing.


A my face but better look? I made an effort to make a natural no-makeup makeup look here but I think I wasn't bothered to be all soft smokey-ed. So I just used one eyeshadow.

Believe it or not, I wear makeup in school and most of my schoolmates never really notice it until they see me bare-faced. So anyways, a question for all you Bruneians who wears clear contact lenses. Can you tell me what brand you're using? And where do you buy it, locally? I love this brand that I simply can't live without, UNFORTUNATELY, I have to go to a neighboring country to actually buy these cheapo but VERY COMFORTABLE clear contact lenses. Color contact lenses are not an option because I don't want to pull much more attention to myself.

FOTD : It was just another wedding reception

Assalamualaikum pretty ladies!

Another FOTD and an inclusive ROTD (Ring of The Day), I won't be posting a lot of ROTD because I hardly have an extensive collection. So I might just use my next few pays to actually invest in some of these finger candies.


Went to a wedding reception of my cousin's cousin, I went there with my brother and little sister. I'm sorry about the picture below, it's only after the reception that I decided to take pictures, LOL!

Make-up Review: Catrice Liquid Eye Liner Pen in Black Green

Assalamualaikum pretty ladies!

Another venture into a pen-type liquid liner, I wasn’t planning to actually buy any liners from Catrice, but it was cheap and it was green, I never encountered a green liquid eyeliner, I am for a fact searching for a green gel eyeliner or a pink one (which I will buy from Holika Holika, LOL!) There’s also a blue liquid eyeliner, I’m not really interested in blue, I think I’m on a “sick of blue” phase.



Getting on the review, I love that this colour is for a fact, GREEN! The packaging isn’t so flimsy, the felt-tip isn’t so flimsy, they do bend but it doesn’t bother the way you apply it, you can still get a flick to make a perfect cat-eye line (one I can never seem to master).

At first, I was a little disappointed because it was just black when I swatched it on my hand AFTER I bought it, because there wasn’t any testers, so I had to blindly purchase it. But after using it a few times, or mad swatches on my hand, the green starts to show up. It doesn’t smudge or budge even after extensive rubbing, but it’s non-waterproof, though with that property, it seems to stain my skin a little bit, so I do have to wash a little bit more thoroughly.

It’s like a forest-green green and it’s such a nice colour, though I’d wish it’s more pigmented because when going about, no one is going to notice your green eyeliner unless they look at it closely, but so far, it does make my brown eyes more “popping” LOL!

A repurchase? Maybe

Want-it Wishlist : Blush Palette Galore

Assalamualaikum pretty ladies!

Hello guys! I think I’ve had too many Want-It Wishlists, but I really love to buy these palettes for giving those pinky glows on your cheek. Can you actually believe that I currently only have two blushes in my make-up collection? Not that I’m complaining as I am making full use of these two blushes.

Anyways, I’ve stumbled open a few blush palettes I’d like to have, where 4 of them are actually more of to the budget side.



1.       Neve Cosmetic’s Blushissmi Blush and Contour Palette – This is the most expensive out of all, but I assume that the quality of this palette is pretty much of the higher side due to the price. It’s as if there’s hardly any red-coloured blush which is somewhat a big nay for me, as I’d love to actually have a diverse range of color in my blush palettes. Though it’s a plus that they have contouring powder and what seems to be a highlighting palette.

2.       Cherimoya Blush Bronzer Palette – Something that is affordable around $5-7, which is fine by me as there are 4 different colours in it. Also, there’s actually a bronzer in there.

3.       Body Collection Blush Quad -  I’ve actually seen this because my friend bought it from UK, though at first I wasn’t lusting over it, but now that I love to venture on blushes, I wished I’ve asked her to buy it for me too. LOL!

4.       Cherimoya Mineral Blush Palette – There’s 2 blushes that are bright pink, while the other two are muted pink and a reddish pink. These blush quads from Cherimoya seems exciting to try.

5.       W7 Duo Blusher - Anything from W7 is definitely affordable and I’d love to try this out, I haven’t found any reviews regarding this particular product. But nevertheless, W7 is known to have pigmented blushes/bronzers. So not something I’d regret to try :D

Do you have any blush palettes that you could recommend?
