[Shopping] Plaza @ Cosme

Hello everyone!!

Recently, i've received a question on my asking where to buy cosmetics in Singapore.

well.. you can find a lot of japanese drug store brands in Watsons and SASA which is available in almost all shopping malls..

In addition, you can find unique or should i say.. not so well known in Singapore brands in selected shops as well!

Today i'm going to introduce one place that i happen to find this afternoon!

It's at Tanjong Pagar 100am 

I'm surprised by the number of brands they brought in from Japan!!

Yes, ISM!!!
If you're stalker of japanese gyaru models (i used to be), you will notice that a lot of them went to ISM salon. The awesome thing i noticed about this salon is that... no matter how many times their models bleached, permed, dyed their hair, their hair still looks smooth and silky!!

ISM came out with their own haircare brand and i'm really thrilled to see ISM in plaza@cosme!

but i didn't buy cause it would be too heavy to carry home hahaha.

 Next haircare brand that i'm thrilled about is LORETTA!!
LORETTA appears on MANY MANY beauty magazine!

it's always highly recommended by japanese hairstylists and editors..

I tried the testers on shelf.
It smells really nice, however i can't really tell their effects cause i've already applied wax on my hair.. =3=

 btw their packaging is super cute!

Plaza@Cosme also carries many body care, facial, makeup products!

I felt as though i'm back in Japanese pharmacy stores where there's always something interesting every corner!

So, if you're around tanjong pagar, do remember to drop by 100am to have a mini japanese drug store experience hahaha.

Hopefully they can carry in more brands and the "mini" experience would be upgraded to "THE REAL DRUGSTORE experience" hahaha

And in the end, i bought three products!

Hopefully i will get to review them soon!

Mini Mini Mini Post

Hello everyone!!

Today's mini blog post is about MINI products!!

I love and absolutely need products that are in mini size cause I'm super KIASU (afraid to lose) kinda of person.


I always overpack since young. I still remember during my primary school days, my bag was so big and heavy that my principal pitied me and carried my bag for me.. haha. cause i used to bring all the textbooks to school worrying that my teacher will need a book that is not in the timetable.. haha

and when i go overseas, my luggage always always weigh around the luggage weight limit when i depart. (if i'm rich, i would be like rachel zoe.. i will bring 5 luggage full of clothes with me haha)

Cause i am afraid i might need something i don't need. 

SO.... whenever i see MINI version of a product i love.. i will buy them!
And after a while, they become something i collect.

Here's the mini size perfume of my usual perfumes!
I usually put one into my makeup pouch (not because my pouch is stinky but because i might need it)

and when i travel overseas, i bring them all!!
Different perfume for different outfits haha

They look super cute with their "Mama" haha

Second item i'm always always elated to have is mini size hair spray!!

I can't tell you how much i can't live without this!

Just put them into your bag, whenever you have strand ends you just need to spray on them!

Also, in this humid weather, you definitely need them to keep your curls!
with hair spray, even the rain won't straighten out your curls!

Also, i love collecting mini eyelash glue that comes with eyelash set! hahaha

i will drop at least one in each bag.. so just in case, one day i need a eyelash glue i won't need to buy one from shop.

So, here's my top 3 mini products i can't live without!
Do you have mini products you can't live without too?

In case you're wondering why i'm talking about "mini" products...

it's because i'm thrilled about a product launch from ADORE (my favourite sanitary pad brand) and .... the theme is..... *hint hint*


it's coming out soon! I can't wait!!

I'm a big supporter of ADORE because it's by far the most comfortable pad i've ever worn! Plus, it has high absorbency and leak-proof base (no leakage), not forgetting the Green Compound Strip breakthrough technology that inhibits bacterial growth, promoting freshness and improves feminine hygiene.

If you are new to ADORE, you can read more about them on my previous reviews!

[Review] Daiso Brown Mix Lash Review

Hello everyone!!

It had been long since i've last posted a lash review!!

Today i'm going to review about DAISO LASHES cause i went shopping today and saw their new BROWN MIX lashes!

DAISO is following the lash trend and is producing their own brown lashes!

Look at the lovely packaging!
How can i resist not buy them home??

I only saw three styles in the shop so i bought them all.

First, we have Brown MIX Lovely Dolly Style.

No. 5 Lovely Dolly Style

Unlike most Daiso lashes, this series has got transparent bands.

It's mentioned on the packaging that this series is handmade! *do you know that Dolly Wink is Handmade in vietnam?*

so immediately i linked up handmade with GOOD QUALITY~

At first glance, even though the packaging clearly says that it's BROWN MIX.. i couldn't see the brown colour in it...
it looks slightly lighter than normal black lashes but... hmmm...
i will explain with pictures later..

 *creepy eye photo*


Unfortunately, this lash design (pointy pointy) was never my favourite...

Next set, we have NO.1 Angel style~

Clearly those kind that are heavier on the ends, great for tare (droopy eye) makeup.

lol! see how droopy it gets!

Next, a more natural looking design in this series.

No.4 Dolly Style

 Among all, i like this design best cause it looks lighter and more natural.

Although it doesn't look very natural when worn, it doesn't look toooooo exaggerating either.. 

So which one is your favourite?

Mine is ranked as above...
No.4 Dolly style > No. 1 Angel style > No.5 Lovely Dolly Style

Conclusion : 

Comfort : ★★★
Even though it's soft spine, it's not very comfortable. It's harder and less flexible as compared to Dolly Wink and diamond lash. Nevertheless, it's still tolerable.. just that you will constantly feel that you're wearing falsies~ I don't mind though =)

Design : ★★
OH wells..... Not a big fan of any of the designs. Though No.4 Dolly Style looks quite nice in photo but i find it plain. It doesn't enhance length or width of the eyes. It just defines the eyes generally. If you're looking for a simple pair of lashes for photoshoot or date, i would say... go for it =) You might even consider layering in the middle to create a rounder eye illusion. 

No.1 Angel style is the typical tare eye lashes which is unfortunately not my type of lashes now... but considering the price and the similarity in design with *ahem* many brands, you can try this lash out if you like tare eye make!

No.5 Lovely Dolly Style my least favourite. I'm biased, i just don't like this style personally.

And yep, regarding the "brown"(?) mix....

Daiso brown mix doesn't look brown at all!
Eyemazing is the lightest among these 4, second comes dolly wink limited edition.
Diamond lash almond eye should be the closest to daiso brown mix as almond eye is also a mix of black and brown. However, daiso lashes still look darker and more like black.
it's lighter than black though!

Price : ★★★★★
Well not as cheap as china/taobao/taiwan lashes (around 5 pairs for $8~11) but cheaper than many japanese brands!
However, in terms of quality, i feel that some china/taobao/taiwan lashes have got better quality! =)

Suitable for :
Not so picky falsies user

Great for single eyelid girls whose eyelid can be formed by hard bands! =)
(eg : scroll down to the bottom of this post -> LINK HERE)

People who are looking for lashes to wear urgently (ie when your boyfriend suddenly asked you out and you didn't bring any makeup... and don't wish to spend a lot buying lashes)

Beginners who wanna try transparent bands but wanna practice first =)

[AD] Freedom to be yourself #OOTD , featuring Adore Comfort all Days

Hello everyone!!

I'm going to share a few of my favourite OOTDS today!

I love sweet, kawaii and everything nice!

I don't like black, cool or mode style.

Thus, you'll probably find my wardrobe full of pastel, white and a lot of dresses...

However, those clothes are a big big big NO NO during period.

During menstruation period, i will most likely be camping at home with pain...
however, during the times that i have have to leave house..

grrrr... and i would have to worry about staining or that thick pad revealing when choosing outfits =3=

Due to that lack of confidence, i will have to confine my style to black, baggy clothes... T.T

That makes going out during period really annoying (on top of PMS, i've got to wear something i don't like out!! )

BUT on a happier note, i found my solution 5 months ago when ADORE is introduced to me!
As i've mentioned earlier, ADORE is ultra slim and it has a leak proof layer!

This enables to me wear what i love on my worrisome days!
 Which makes my annoying period a little more enjoyable to me hahaha

so without further ado, i shall show you three sets of OOTDS i could now wear during my period! haha

yes playsuits!!
I'm not sure why but i love playsuit! It easiest to coordinate as it's already coordinated! One set and you're ready to go out for a shopping date!

Previously, i would never wear playsuits during my period cause it's hard to remove the playsuit when you visit the toilet!
During period, I would have to visit the female frequently to check for leakage.
However, with my trustworthy ADORE i'm less paranoid and thus less visits to the loo!

AND THEREFORE, i've got to put on playsuit!

 Most of the dresses and skirts in my wardrobe is white!YES, white white white!
I love white in my OOTD! White can be pure, sweet and sometimes cool as well!
Everything goes well with white! It makes your OOTD looks clean and neat!

However, it can only do so if the white dresses are CLEAN!!
therefore, to protect my precious white dresses, i don't wear them out during periods!

 Now with the leak proof ADORE, I won't need to worry about staining the white dress no more!

 Another type of apparels that i would normally avoid during period is....
tight bottoms!

However, pencil skirts are always in trend and they give curves to your figure!! every girl should have a tight hugging pencil skirt in case you need to boost your feminine confidence one day!

With ADORE being ultra thin, you need not worry about the pad revealing at all =)

ADORE だいすき has been awarded WINNER Of Best Selling PREMIUM Sanitary Napkins Of The Year 2014 (Watsons HWB – Health Wellness Beauty) Award for the 2nd consecutive Year (2013 & again in 2014). If you haven’t tried it you really should!

To me, fashion is enjoyment!
Wearing nice dresses make me confident and happy! 
All girls should have freedom to choose what they wanna wear daily! Whether it's period, size , age or what other people commented... non of these factors should limit you to wearing something that won't make you feel happier and more confidence!

Enjoy fashion! 
Enjoy the freedom to be yourself!

Fortunately, boon eng from kyudotsg kindly agreed with my childish request and there you go~

My picnic with brownie!

It's freaking hot that day !!
I was perspiring crazily! 
(which i'm pretty sure you can notice from some the photos)

My makeup was ruined by the end of the shoot but... it's all worth it since there's photos that i love!
plus kyudotsg helped me with his awesome editing skills~


Recently, a few girls emailed me regarding the photoshoot with kyudotsg..
You can email kyudotsg directly for a shoot!
