The King Of Pop & Japanese Cosmetic & Skincare REVIEW

I cannot believe  that Michael Jackson just passed away.

The King of Pop is an absolute legend and its such a shock that he passed away at the young age of 50.

No human being can come close to dancing, singing or entertaining like him.

His was a life of fame, plagued by  endless legal suits, debts, family and image  issues.

When I watch his old videos, its like being transported to another time zone. Its like re-living my past and it makes me feel sad that this eccentric genius is gone….

I take comfort in one fact that despite everything, his music lives on.

 

 

R.I.P

Moving on, I’ve been super busy at work and my desk is looking very cluttered.

On the MAKEUP & HAIR front :

After a serious hair frying incident and a rebonding session to salvage the over preocessed hair, I decided to chop off all the dead ends. I went to the shop and told the aunty to give me a straight hair cut and take off 3-4 inches of hair.

Now, when I leave my hair to air dry , its dead straight:

I had a fun time catching up with my pretty and wonderful friends last night and at the end of the day, my hair would look a little more wavy ….

When I curl this shorter  hair of mine, I find that it looks mighty short….I’ve always had long hair most of my life, so I guess I’m used to feeling hair on my back and framing my face. I would love to try a really short hair style but I know it will spell disaster for my fat face. Also, I am making a guess that my Hubby will be frowning, ALOT!

Men and their long hair obsession *tsk tsk*

I  so want my hair to look like these Japanese Girls that I see in

this magazine:IMG_5662

Right now, my hair is just naturally pin straight. It takes alot of time and product to make it stay curled. I must wake up earlier for the sake of grooming my hair ( but I’m so lazy) ! hehehe

EYE FLASHER!

I bought EYE FLASHER  recently at Watsons.I am a true blue sucker for Japanese Products and this one was sitting pretty on the shelve with the most gorgeous wet SILVER Eyeshadow ( right most shade on palette). The Japs are so smart, they include simple instructions on the packaging to obtain 3 different looks.

My Favorite has to be the first one – Smokey Big Eye

*DeLish*

IMG_5826

IMG_5828I think the colors really compliment Asian yellow skin tones and they work together really well!

Many eye shadow palettes have certain colors that are crappy and certain colors that are gorgeous.This palette is that bit more special cause all the colors look great together and are so easy to blend, and they leave a gorgeous shine. I like the angled applicator tip that comes with the palette as it is suited for small areas, which then allows you to brighten the inner eye corners very nicely.

Also, the wet silver color on the right most is super super hot.

EYEFLASHER cost around $24 + and its worth every penny!

SEPHORA LIQUID

LINER

                    VS

SANA THICK EYELINER

 

SEPHORA: SEPHORA BROWN LIQUID LINER ( $20)

IMG_5815 

WATSONS: SANA EXTRA HEAVY EYELINER ( $24+)IMG_5812

 

 

The Comparison:

**I won’t do a comparison in terms of color because one is dark brown( Sephora) and the other is black ( Extra Heavy Eyeliner).

IMG_5820

 

IMG_5823

 

 

SANA

IMG_5821

+ Very easy to use

+ The firm tip allows for easy application even on the lower eye lash

+ Does not smudge when you sweat

- The Tip does not allow for a very fine application like Sephora

- Leaves a hint of color after removal

 

 

SEPHORA

IMG_5822

+ Very Fine Tip Applicator for exact and precise lines

+ Cheaper than Sana Heavy Eyeliner

+ Easy to remove

- Takes rather long to dry

- Smudges easily

-Occasionally leaves a reddish tint after removal ( this can look pretty scary)

 

Personally, I would go with SANA EXTRA HEAVY EYELINER. I find pen type liquid liners easier to grip and draw and I like the fact that my sister preferred the eye with SANA Heavy Eyeliner more than the eye with Sephora’s Line.

However, not to be too bias towards Japanese Products, I do find that brown eyeliner gives a softer appearance as compared to black liners and Sephora’s liner tips are thin yet firm, thus drawing a  precise line most of the time.

Everyone will have their own favorites, so do have fun experimenting!

 

MAKEUP REMOVER

(Bought this from WATSONS too, as they have a nice selection of  Japanese skincare and cosmetics…. THANK U WATSONS! )

IMG_5825

Another Japanese Product that I am GAGA about. This makeup remover is so so effective yet gentle at the same time. I think Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil has a serious contender and I think this baby may emerge the winner. WHY?

+WAY CHEAPER

+Removes makeup like a dream!

+No funny smell

+A small pump is enough for removing heavy duty mascara!

+ITS JAPANESE!

+No Irritation at all( unless u get it right in ur eye)

 

BODY – LICIOUS!

 

IMG_5714 IMG_5712

Victoria Secret Berry Wash

* Changi Airport $18 +

+ Sweet smelling

+ Pretty Packaging

+Skin feels so creamy & moisturized after use

-If you have had smelly sweaty days, skip this. It won’t make you feel squeaky clean

Satsuma Body Polish
*Body Shop ( I’m not sure about the price cause my family has 4-5 bottles at home)

+ OMG, EXCEPTIONAL SMELL that diffuses all over the home

+Pretty Packaging

+Skin is left feeling very Clean & I am completed invigorated after a SATSUMA BATH!

-I skip this at night because it’s too zingy & invigorating for a good night’s rest

 

Hope u enjoy this review heavy post and have a well rested weekend !

 

CIAO BELLAS *MUACKS*

    Its such a shame MJ past away. No one can replace the King of Pop.

    That makeup cleanser looks mighty good. Too bad its hard to find Japanese brands, let alone asian brands in general. The e/s quad looks pretty! Praise the Japs for being nice and giving out instructions, lol. I have the Satsuma body cream. I swear the smell is so yummy and you can smell it around the whole house! Love it!<3

    Your paintings and drawings are really nice. I especially love the first painting. Wonderful colors. I haven't done any type of art in such a long time.

      Dee Dee, thats a really sweet compliment. I think I paint best when I’m in a relaxed and creative mood. This business can be very stressful and its so important I find an avenue to destress. Painting is so addictive.
      The Satsuma Body Cream must be heavenly too. I think BODY SHOP deserves an award for producing this amazing SATSUMA LINE! :)

    I am very sadden by MJ’s death…albeit a bit belated. I guess When the news broke it was just so surreal. I couldn’t believe it…He was so gifted, made so much memorable music and yet his life is so sad. I pray he will get a wonderful afterlife.

    wowers your eye-line is so straight. please dun laugh at my eyes when u meet me k.
