Random photoshoot

Last month my friends and I did a mini photoshoot to take pictures for my friend’s make-up portfolio and at the same time I could use the pictures to submit for a competition. 🙂 So I packed almost half of my closet there cause I don’t know what to wear and I brought a bunch of accessories too. My friends said I looked like I was running from home and actually I could with that much clothes,hahaha! So Amanda, Emily and I went to Amanda’s friend, Carlyn’s house to get the make up done.

The before picture.

Make-up in the process.

 

Changed and it’s time to do the hair and Carlyn had to rush because she’s meeting her cousin so she had to speed curl it.

 

Speed curl or not, it looks really good! It must be her magic curler, I should get that curler. Haha!

Found a good spot for taking pictures! 🙂

After that Amanda,Emily and I went to Tropicana City Mall to get lunch cause we were starving and we can’t function without food in our system. We had lunch at this small bakery/cafe place called Pastry Culture’ because they were having a lunch promotion where you get pasta with a bottle of mineral water and a dessert of the day for only RM9.90 if I’m not mistaken and we think it’s an awesome deal. We get to choose the toppings and the sauce for our pasta too! The pasta was really good because it was cooked individually instead of all together so the taste is consistent, the downside was it took a while to get to us and they gave us a really good Blackforest cake as a dessert. If I ever go back there again I promise to take lotsa pictures of it and write a review. 🙂

So after we recharged, we went to a spot which I remembered has a pretty nice backdrop for taking pictures and I changed into the super high heels that Carlyn borrowed me, I still wonder how you girls walk in these kind of shoes cause I almost tripped a few times.

 

 

 

 

 

Emily was the photographer that day and she was really patient cause I am not exactly an expert in posing. Look at Amanda and Emily taking the infamous toilet mirror shot while I was changing to another outfit.

Went back to the same spot again to take pictures.

 

 

 

Damn those shoes made my legs look so long. The good side of wearing sky high heels.

I should invest in one cause it can act as a weapon too,one throw and if I have good aim,it can actually hurt someone. Ladies get a pair of sky high heels instead of pepper spray.

Nature Republic Liquid Eyeliner

So I am on a hunt to find the best eyeliner that are less then RM50 and which comes from those Korean Beauty Stores like Nature Republic, The Face Shop, and many more. I couldn’t find much reviews of products from those shops online so I thought maybe I should start one. So I did some testing on my hands and this one passed so I got it. Tried the pencil and it was not concentrated or smooth so it’s out.

Goo Hara from Kara.

What made me buy this eyeliner from Nature Republic was because Kara was one of the ambassadors for this brand (Goo Hara was wearing this eyeliner and she looked so glam and I was hoping that it would be good.) and I was running out of liquid eyeliner. They had a 10% discount too and I tested it by rubbing it and by washing my hands so I can conclude that it’s does come off easily when you rub it but it is Waterproof after it’s dried like it claimed to be. It’s RM36 something after the discount.

 

 

It’s not a felt tip but a brush and it glides on really smoothly.

 

 

Notice the difference on my lips? It’s because in the before picture, I was not wearing the Revlon Lip Butter. In this picture, I was wearing it and the color is Peach Parfait, the one Emma Roberts was wearing in the advertisement. 🙂

 

Still have not master the art of applying liquid eyeliner, it took me more than 10 minutes and I had to use an eye make-up remover to make the lines neater. It sort of irritated my eyes too when I tried lining the inner corners of my eyes.

Rating:
Price- 4/10, kind of pricey in my opinion.
Packaging- 6/10, I find it very easy to hold the brush with the handle.
Quality- 7/10, It’s really pigmented black with no glitter and if I compare it to the Revlon Colorstay Liquid Liner in Blackest Black, this one wins hands down!
Removal- 8/10, If you ran out of eye make-up remover, you could always rub it off or wash it off with warm water.
Staying Power- 8/10, I wore it since 9a.m until 8p.m and it stayed on really well, just that they were a few dropouts throughout the day. Could be from my mascara though?
Will I buy it again- No.

One day, I shall try Hara’s look! Line my eyes with loads of eyeliner and add some falsies too. It’s going to be a busy semester as usual so hopefully I plan my time more wisely so that my blog won’t be neglected. Ok time for bed for me! Night!
