Kose Sekkisei Whitening Mask

IMG_3190

 

It’s a peel off mask that removes whiteheads, blackheads, and other impurities.. Oh and of course facial hair. There’s another one in the Seikisho range by Kose as well but I think there’s no difference after having used both.

This review is actually insignificant because this product is darn famous and there are tons of pretty accurate reviews online already. But it’s my HG (holy grail) that I’ve repurchased countless times so hafta talk bout it!

IMG_3192

It’s a black, gooey and thick liquid that you spread all over the face (excluding eye area; it’s too fragile for this!) and wait for approximately 20 minutes before peeling it off. Instead of grandmother story I shall just list the pros and cons:

PROS:

  • Removes whiteheads and facial hair well
  • Affordable – it comes in two tube sizes: small is S$35 and big is $50-60? Not sure.
  • Face becomes much smoother and brighter after using
  • Convenient tube packaging

CONS: 

  • Doesn’t remove blackheads that well, I still prefer Biore pore strips for that
  • Peeling process can be painful for some. I think it’s alright though.

***

All in all, a lovely product that I’ll repurchase till it stops production or something. That are other similar products in the market but with much higher price tags.. Such as Rodial’s. So I’ll stick to this as the performance, price and packaging are perfect to me. :)

I miss Hong Kong badly. Although this pic looks like I’m in London instead.. lmao

G.E.M

My new favourite singer.

^ Most loved two performances from her. I am aware of her existence all along but didn’t venture further….. She gained a whole lot more exposure through 我是歌手 and her song 泡沫 (WHICH I LOVE OMG I SING IN KTV ALTHOUGH I SUCK HAHA MY POOR BF’S AND FRIENDS’ EARS)

My favourite female vocals are still Ding Dang’s, A Lin’s, and Hebe’s but GEM is very very close. She sounds like she has giant lungs… I love her singing so much.

hee

Been singing so much K (lol sound damn singaporean) recently. Happy sia. K SUITES IS THE BEST! Charge me kod or weekend charge also nvm! Though not for everyday, singing + drinking combined is the finest activity to enjoy in life.

Nick I know you are reading this, let’s go showcase our beautiful vocals to each other soon.

/so lazy to update properly, too much backlog D:/

NUS big ah

IMG_4126

My elder sister’s graduated from NUS! Honestly dunno how she did it cos she was always sleeping…?!

Here’s a comparison of universities (that I know/interested in) IN MY OWN THOUGHTS, might not be close to the truth at all but just what I think:

(I know I’m just a normal student in a private uni.)

1. NUS – Touted as the most prestigious in the country. It is, I guess. Not easy to get in (for me la duh).
2. NTU – 2nd most prestigious and usually the second choice for people who can’t get in to NUS. (I DUNNO TRUE OR NOT. JUST GUESSIN’ AND SAYIN’ AND YES I WAS FROM ITE SO I SHOULD SHUT UP) Anyway I realise that many teachers are from NTU.
3.  SMU – The one known with “many angmoh teachers”. School fees are a freakin’ bomb. Very good location – beside Dhoby Ghaut MRT station.
4.  SIM – The one that many local students go to after poly. SIM is a private university but doesn’t feel like it due to the amount of locals… Mom wanted me to go SIM initially but I refused cos of the location. I know, I don’t deserve my life
5. KAPLAN – Duhhh. The one with a huge truckload of foreign students, probably due to the short duration of courses and convenient location. I realised that Kaplan is quite shrewd; they accept (mainly foreign) students whose English suck terribly into the diploma courses. Then let them pass (without flying colours – just pass only) and proceed to the degree level, where they get strict with them. And then the students fail horribly. D:

I know I shouldn’t be so pessimistic, but after attending my sister’s graduation ceremony I realised there are many people with degree certificates now. Even NUS ones. So mine is practically nothing. Other than the cert, good character and capable skills are mandatory to land yourself a good job. I don’t expect to get like 4k (like what my local peer is expecting. Lululz) as salary just because I have a degree cert. Unless I’m lucky la, I wish.

Moral of the story – It is important to be down-to-earth, not only because your cert is actually nothing valuable, but because a good character is rare.. Rarer than a degree cert.

Buh-bye

Topper’s Jack

Lol, just saw that someone came here from the search “Insiro starhub”. Hi I’ve left the company for more than 2 years and I was in it for less than 2 months only. Whatever information that might be found in my archives may not be accurate because I was an immature young lady at that point of time. WAS.

It’s a good company! And I’m still in contact with one of the employees working there now who will be going to Jay’s concert with me! :D

As usual, today’s post will be either about random or beauty stuff. No fancy picture-perfect ootds ok?! Lololol

IMG_3713

Random buy. Silkygirl lipstick – after discount $5.50. Love orangey shades but this dried out my lips.

IMG_3719

Olay Aquaction long lasting hydration gel and the deep hydrating dew – a toner.

Finished my first tub :D  After buying these separately I went to watsons the next day and saw it being sold as a set for much cheaper… The difference is $13 perhaps? Dafug

I like the toner as well

IMG_3721

It makes the skin soft and ‘ready’ for skincare! Woot!

IMG_4083

Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Powder. I bought quite a lot of stuff from Innisfree recently… Their recipe capsule packs are quite lovely. Lazy to photograph them cos they’re in the washroom lol

Anyway. This powder tub is quite tiny but extremely affordable at SGD10. As someone with terribly oily skin, I love to pat this on the face to reduce shine. It’s okay la.. I still get oily. Hahahaha.

IMG_4084

It’s good to bring out though due to the size. The powder only comes in one shade – white – and I think it would suit fair skin tones more.

IMG_4086

Givenchy lipgloss in 06

IMG_4087

Love the logo. Oriental feel

IMG_4090

I love the fashion brand soooo much. If only it’s not so expensive.

IMG_4089

Other than the brand, packaging, and colour, there’s nothing I like about this lipgloss. It goes on streaky and is drying, oh dear.

IMG_4092

Shu Uemura eyeshadow in Vivid Green

IMG_4093

Laneige eyeshadow in gold khaki

IMG_4094

IMG_4095

I’m impressed by Laneige’s. Smooth and soft.
Vivid Green is smooth too but not that pigmented… Which is fine in my books actually. I’m not into theatre makeup

IMG_4096

Bobbi Brown Long Wear Cream Shadow

IMG_4097

In Blue Moon. Haven’t touched it.

IMG_4098

Bobbi Brown lipgloss in Black Pearl

IMG_4099

Clinique chubby stick in 13 Mighty Mimosa. I like this! Indeed moisturising on the lips! Got two more colours but gave to ma mom and sis

IMG_4101

K Palette Real Lasting Eyebrow in Brown. I wanted to get the eyeliner but took the wrong product >:( and the cashier didn’t give me receipt so…

Reminder to myself: Get a receipt ALWAYS, and keep your eyes peeled

IMG_4105

YSL glossy stain in #1.

IMG_4109

WA LOVE THIS

  • Doesn’t feel drying
  • Pigmented
  • Nice colour
  • Not thick or gloopy. Literally stains the lips only.

IMG_5368

Wearing it in this photo. It looks wet and “juicy” but my lips weren’t wet or sticky at all… Felt like I wasn’t having any product on. Also I kissed Nick and his lips weren’t stained! YAY! Due to its nature (of being a lip stain), the staying power was KICKASS STRONG.. It didn’t transfer to cups or straws as well!

The ONLY flaw, I guess, is that it can apply rather unevenly. I had to use my finger to spread it out. But it’s nothing really

SO GONNA GET MORE COLOURS Y’ALL

BUT WHY SO EXPENSIVE LOL

IMG_5385

Whooop

IMG_4100

The weather is so sweltering hot recently that I’m all about shorts and opened toe footwear. Also yes Trust In My Spending Power HAHAHAHAHA

IMG_5354

Love this necklace, a gift from the Mayday peeps from their hk trip.

It has a cat head

IMG_5363

Why, hello there, you fluffy cutie sweetie major squishy pie

BYE!!!!

Just feel like posting a bigass photo of myself. Wearing my fav pair of contact lenses.

I don’t actually feel like talking about this, but feel obliged to address this matter on my blog since I’m Jay’s biggest fan. Lol.

A few years before he promised to get married by age 35. (Dunno who the fuck he wants to promise to. Lol) He was like 28 then and I was still an innocent secondary school girl who didn’t think much of that stupid promise. Fast forward years later HE’S SUDDENLY 34 ALREADY

I realised I remember the damned promise. Together with my friend who’s as crazy for him as I am. (More rational, though) After his 34th birthday we were dreading (yet expecting) news of his supposed marriage. Technically he didn’t make the promise to Hannah so he shouldn’t keep it sia… Anyway I know his character. He wants to keep to his word of getting married by age 35, because he simply couldn’t stand the thought of everyone saying “周杰倫說三十五歲之前會結婚,騙人的”. And since he has a gf now.. A chio one in fact… Why not get married?

She’s 21 this year, one year younger than I am. (But looks older hehe) I don’t know much about her other than the fact that she has a good figure… I know it’s quite unfair to judge like that but she seems too immature and unsuitable for Jay. Looks are important, I know, but they don’t last forever. Jay himself said that marriage is for a lifetime, and that it will happen only ONCE. I honestly don’t want him to have a divorce record. That’s too much of an assumption but I seriously don’t think they can last. DOES SHE EVEN LISTEN TO ALL HIS SONGS AND REMEMBER THEM BY HEART? HE MENTIONED THAT HIS GIRL MUST BE ABLE TO. LOL! WHAT A CHAUVINISTIC MAN.

I can, btw. I can’t say that I’m saddened by this piece of news as I’m in a relationship with the most wonderful guy, but it’s like an upcoming catastrophe that I don’t want to see happening. OH god can anyone give proper advice to him?!??! Or maybe… She will turn out to be a good wife after all? D: I am confused. I hope she says no. Hey it’s actually good for her career if she does! SHE WILL 爆紅 FOR REJECTING JAY CHOU CAN?

He’s someone I’ve liked for more than a decade. He might be just a singer to many, but he’s more than that to me, and his happiness matters… to me.

IMG_5292

After all the blabbering.. Anyone wants these tickets?

我不要看那個姓*周*的了。。

Curious little beasty

Haven’t been here for the looongest time. Been so busy doing assignments and just lazying around :D Sometimes I really admire those hardworking bloggers who churn out so many entries within a short period of time. It really ain’t easy y’all. Maybe the motivation is profits la which I don’t have. LOL.

Gonna be a random entry with random photos

IMG_4862

Oh my babypie <3333

The peeled thingie is my iPad. I haven’t changed the cover since getting it 2 years ago… Cos I don’t bring it out ma haha.

IMG_5051

First time trying a pigmented red lip! They look beautiful on others but I was always afraid to try; scared look like getai singer..

Kinda converted now but I still prefer peachy/orangey shades; my favourite kind of colours for the lips.

Red lips garner stares and I hate it when people do so. I know it might be a compliment – “你不美人家不會看” ok super bhb for typing that sentence out but I just DETEST random strangers staring. It’s SO rude. I glance and peer at others too (those that are worth doing so) but I don’t just stare pointedly oblivious to the person’s reaction.

IMG_5073

With my dearest of the dearest.

Our relationship has hit a new level. Previously, I was upset for him for being too “controlling” but somehow both of us changed for the better. He let loose his clutches a little and my temper improved… I understand why he was so jealous last time. Now I just wanna spend all day with him. Hehe. I’m so glad we have each other.

I love you babi. Xx

IMG_4815

Stella’s belated birthday celebration and also Waikeat’s farewell NS party! No photos with the bugger though.

What a fun and crazy night… Never put Xuewei and Alina together. You’ll go deaf. Or have to shout at the top of your voice to the person sitting beside you. Hahahahaha!

IMG_5234

Told ya this entry is random. Damn, I bought sooo many clothes and shoes these past 2 months >____< Can’t control seriously.

I feel that the most important factor to being a student is motivation. And my motivation is, to plainly and simply put, SHOPPING. I swear it’s like a pair of running shoes that enables me not to only run but machiam fly.

I LOVE SHOPPING.

IMG_5239

Estee Lauder Pure Color High Gloss in 03 Berry Lush. The shade is amazing, pigmented stuff.

IMG_5251

Not colour accurate but I love the gloss although it’s sticky. I usually don’t bother about glosses being sticky but when the wind blows and your hair comes in contact with the gloss it’s annoying.

Movies:

Maleficent – Watched the trailer and knew I HAVE to watch this by hook or by crooooook. The remake song of Once Upon A Dream by Lana Del Ray is so eerily amazing. I loved Angelina Jolie’s acting (so gorgeous in the show!!!) but somehow am disappointed by the plot. But then again, it’s by Disney… No way would they produce a movie with the lead as a real villain, when kids are their main target audience.

Which is such a bummer. Maleficent would do so great as an evil and dark villain! Which she originally was. (Read in wiki)

I found out about MAC x Maleficent’s collection like yesterday (lull wols) and learnt that it’s sold out. DAMMIT

Transformers: Age of Extinction – 3 hours of numbing goodness. Checked my watch when it hit the 1 hr 30 min mark and I actually panicked cos I thought it’s gonna end… Then I remembered the show is 3 hours and heaved a sigh of relief and continued to immerse myself in the fantastic film. That’s how breathtaking it is. I didn’t want it to end….

This is my fav out of the whole Transformers series. I love how the lead is a single father and how they didn’t focus too much on romance. I’m a serious romantic when it’s with my bf but I don’t like romance or touching films.. (Unless it’s mixed with comedy) so yay! The guy lead, Mark Wahlberg is the guy in Ted! Found him so familiar… His acting skills are good! Anyway his character’s daughter’s bf looks like Seth Rogen HAHA

Love the fighting scenes, love Optimus Prime’s voice, bemused at Li Bingbing’s random scene with Joshua Joyce. The guy playing Joshua Joyce is the scientist who helped Steve Rogers obtain the beautiful body in Captain America: The First Avenger btw. I think he acts sooo well!! Watch and you’ll know what I mean. He’s capable of many expressions. Fit for comedy too lolll

So many bingbings intruding the angmoh film world woohoo/

Edge of Tomorrow – Interesting plot. Tom Cruise has the ability to reset the day when he dies, when he was infected with a liquid from killing an alien. And that ability is what would help humans win the war against aliens… Overall nice film but a bit dizzy when the day and same events kept repeating….

Gasps that’s all… Looking forward to more movies. I wanna thank those directors, producers, scriptwriters, actors, and everyone else involved in making films seriously. Thank you for producing beautiful and lovely movies (whose plots couldn’t have happened in reality) for us commoners to enjoy. I almost feel that SGD13 is too little for a movie session, haha!

I also wish that the world of X-Men, or rather Marvel, is true. Xoxo

 

X-Men: Days of Future Past

Oh, how long have I waited for this movie!

I am extremely biased towards this movie and all its characters so it obviously received a thumbs up from me… Although I think the plot is a tad too simple. I have watched all previous X-Men movies (thanks to my movie junkie Dad) but have forgotten about all except for X-Men: First Class. I was only in primary school then… lolols!

Anyway I wanna talk about some of the movie’s characters.

1. Hank McCoy / Beast  (っ◕‿◕)っ

beast

Lovey dovey dovey oh oh oh oh

tumblr_m5rs9yV4cn1r4fwg5

First of all – I am so glad that Nicholas Hoult wasn’t in the Beast costume all the time. We need to see more of that handsome face damnit

I think the character suits him to a T. The part where he peered suspiciously at Wolverine.. oh man. SO cute. And he’s so loyal to Professor X.

He looks so kind, innocent, yet strong at the same time. I don’t know how he’s like in real life but based on several interviews and on his girlfriend Jennifer Lawrence’s views, he’s a shy and nerdy guy. The fact that he isn’t a wild party type who’s doesn’t flirt (well, I do not know for sure la..) is just so goddamn attractive.

His acting skills are not bad… I think he needs more different roles to unleash that potential. But with such a cute puppie face who will give him badass roles?? 凸(¬‿¬)

2. Raven / Mystique 

Raven_promo

Man she fits the role amazingly well tooooo. Jennifer Lawrence is 2 years older than I am and so successful… I think she may be an A list celeb already. Love her acting. She’s so seasoned totally can’t tell that she’s only 24 this year!!!!

Mystique is a stubborn one, bent on protecting mutants without thinking the consequences. She is actually considered a villain in the comics and in the past X-Men movies (‘cept for X-Men: First Class). D: I wished she went with Prof X instead of Magneto!

3. Erik Lensherr / Magneto 

mag

A character I don’t have much interest in. I feel Ian McKellen (the old Magneto and Gandalf lol) doesn’t suit the role.. Michael Fassbender is okay.

The character is super guai lan but the power to control steel is kickass.

4. Xavier / Professor X

james-mcavoy

Somehow I think he looks a lil like Eddy. From K Suites. lol

What can I say? James McAvoy suits the role damn well too. So does Patrick Stewart (the old Prof X).

5. Blink

X-Men-Days-of-Future-Past-character-photo-Fan-Bingbing-as-Blink

Portrayed by Fan Bingbing, one of the most popular Chinese actresses. Read that she signed with Marvel for 5 X-Men movies, so we’ll be seeing more of her I guess.

Blink’s powers are unique but caused her own death in the beginning scene.

Lazy to write down any more. Hahahahaha!
