Sugar Plum Fairy 

  
What’s on my lips today – Sugar Plum Fairy by Wet n Wild Megalast Lipstick. 

Totally in love with the texture and consistency of this lipstick. It lasted completely through multiple intakes of liquids and my dinner. It did transfer lightly each time I sipped water from the glass but it didn’t look like much got off my lips. I’d rate this a 4/5!

Essie Using My Maiden Name review

image

Too many obsessions this month I tell you! Here’s yet another review of an Essie polish I have been loving in April. 

Using My Maiden Name is not a 2015 collection polish but is a part of a previous year’s bridal collection. It is described as a pretty blue hydrangea shade which also has a bit of iridescence to it.

As I’ve said before, application is pretty simple and straightforward. Two coats does the trick to reach full opacity. The thin brush applicator makes it easy to apply well on the corners of the nails.

I think personally this is a shade one could wear every spring and even summer regardless of when it was released because it is a fun yet pretty colour on the nails. You need to necessarily wear it while you walk down the aisle but even for a casual day to day occasion.

Essie Blossom Dandy review

Yes, another Essie nail polish review! I got myself some of the spring collection nail polish early last week so here’s my mini review of the shade Blossom Dandy.

I find that this is the perfect shade between a teal blue and sky blue. It’s screams spring in every sense of the shade and I can’t stop wearing it all the time. I needed two coats to achieve full opacity and I just love how well the colour pops on my nails.

2-in-1 Impact Shadow Liner review

20150105_075950

 

Been trying out a new liner by Maybelline Eyestudio. I got this last year while shopping in Malaysia and have worn it quite a few times already. I don’t know if I like it lesser or more than my NYX Cosmetics retractable liner but it’s somewhere there in my good books.

So as the name suggests, this is a 2 in 1 shadow liner. Meaning, it can be used an a liner or shadow liner that can be smudged to create a eyeshadow effect on the eye lids. I find that the packaging is quite simple and easy to work with. It’s not twistable or retractable so you’ve got to sharpen it when the product tip runs out which is also okay with me. Sharpening the tip means I get a good thin line marking when I use it. The nib however can be a little annoying because you don’t always close it right and then bits of the product gets caught it in.

Once applied onto my eyes, I find that it stays on smudge-proof for quite a couple of hours. If I can to say exactly how long, I’d say about 6 to 7 hours without peeling, smudging or running too dry. I like products like this. It’s also got a good pigmentation and I don’t have to run it over and over to get a good dark colour. One line or two does the trick for me. It does actually glide on with ease so that’s another plus point.

Would I be interested in buying more colours in this range? Definitely would love to!
