[Review] Canmake Natural 01

Today's review will be on CANMAKE natural 01!

(so sorry for the late updates, my blogger can't upload photos at all!! >.< tried so many times last week before they could paste the photos on the post.. now i've got so many review photos and so little drafted posts.... urghhh.. have anyone experienced that before?)

Canmake is a brand that is very popular in japan (especially among teens) for its affordability and quality!

I still remember my first canmake purchase ; the stick concealor..
it blends so easily and doesn't cake through the day!
and it's cheaper as compared to many other brands!
 (actually i bought it cause it's well raved by popteen models that time haha)

 In short, i find that canmake is a fabulous makeup brand that is cheap!

so i've got to review their lashes during my lash month right?

i first saw this packaging last month while roaming in watsons looking for lashes that interest me.
and this two pairs series caught my eyes!
*bling bling*

 without flash

 with flash

From my previous lash review, i think most of you know my taste for lashes!
I absolutely love fluffly/natural looking lashes...

that could enlarge my eyes without making look fierce and intimidating!


my natural lashes are so pathetic i shan't be bothered commenting about them anymore

both eyes.

 they add volume in the front and eccentrate your eyes with long lashes at the back.

Love that with the mild criss cross design in the front, they look like lashes sprouting from your lash folliciles. 
great for people who have pathetic natural lashes and wish to look like they don't hahha

Comfort : ★★★★
Although the spine is not as soft as dollywink or diamond lash, it's still comfortable.
 length wise it's perfect for me, no pokey sides on the front and ends =D
comfortable all day long!

Design : ★★
Definitely one of my favourite! 
can i don't give this set away? *puppy eyes*
they blend in naturally without compromising on the length and volume.

 Nevertheless, i still feel that the length of the lashes should be shorter by a little to make this pair the most natural booking pair ever.

Price : ★★★☆☆
SGD$13.90 for two pairs of falsies!
good price for beautiful lashes.
however, i don't find them as durable as dollywink lashes.
Out of pure laziness, i placed them into boxes without pasting them on the original case...
the next day, the spine lost their shape.
soooo sad!
Neverthless, if you store them properly, you can use them up to 7-8 times!

learn how to store them properly here: Remove and store your falsies

Suitable for :
Natural looking, long eyes

Review Diamond Lash Airy Eye

Hello everyone!
I'm back with reviews!!

This time round... it's diamond lash AIRY EYE!
I love airy eye!!
It's so pretty!!

See how fluffy it is...
the strands are really thin and "airy" at the tips..
They start with criss cross strands which makes them really natural despite the heavy volume.

With Upper lashes (airy) and lower lashes (Honey)
both from diamond lash.

 i've got to say, this pair looks fantastic even without lower lashes!

The verdict:
Comfort : ★★★★
The spine is a soft and it's very comfortable putting them on the whole day.
It's very light too, just like wearing nothing at all.
Lashes are so light and "airy" they basically stays on the whole day!

Design : ★★
Love it love it love it!
i love how it looks natural yet able to give so much volume and length to my lashes.
Enlarging but not exaggerating!
This kind of lashes gives an overall enlarging effect!
However, you can definitely adjust how you would like it to be! (rounder or longer ===> Read here for tutorial)
That's why they are my favourite type of lashes!

Price : ★★★
SGD$23.90 for FIVE pairs of falsies!
good price for good quality lashes from JAPAN!
Definitely a 5 star! haha

Suitable for :
Natural looking, Volume

With different bottom lashes:

Do you love this pair too?
This is definitely a keeper for me!

Even though i love this pair sooooo much, i'm still going to give them away to lucky winner!!
Which might just be YOU!!

*PS: please note that one pair of lashes were taken for this lash review!Giveaway consists of diamond lash tray with 4 pairs of AIRY EYE*

Lovemore Collagen Eye Firming Patch
This eye mask not only moisturize and hydrate your skin, it contours and firms the skin too!
The ear hook allows me to move around even with the mask on!

Zappy Insect Repellent Wipes
Zappy boy Alcohol Wipes
Zappy boy Antiseptic Wipes
Zappy After sports Wipes
Zappy Sun System Suncreen Wipes

I used the Zappy After Sports Wipe today after gyming and my skin no longer feel sweaty sticky..
It smells mild but enough to make me feel fresh and smell fresh! Hehehe

GlucosCare Tea!
This is specially formulated using all natural plants (so it’s healthy). It helps the health conscious to lower their sugar intake level! Blended with premium Green Tea to achieve a synergistic effect in reducing sugar intake into our body, weight control and provide other health benefits!
Tastes like green tea (normal ones, not the pokka sweetened ones >.<)
Although it’s obvious that I won’t be seeing any difference in weight with just one packet of GlucosCare Tea, it does give me an assuring feeling while eating sinful food! Hahaha
That’s enough for the sweet tooth me! Hehe

Nuxe Brightening Program BB cream with SPF 30
Sadly, this bb cream is too dark for my complexion which means it’s great for people who find normal BB cream too fair for them!
I would say that it’s really moisturizing with mild coverage.

VDL CC cream.
I’m really glad that they provide sample size foundation cause it allows me to try before purchasing!
Super important cause some foundations will turn grey or oily after a few hours!
You definitely need to try them for a day before deciding whether to purchase them.

And… after trying VDL, I’m really tempted to buy them!
It’s pinkish tone, light and brightening! Neither too dry nor oily for my skin!

Doesn’t turn grey after the whole day too!

They also provide BIFESTA!! YEAHHH~
I don’t think I need to elaborate more on my love for bifesta products!
You can read them here!!

this is super convenient for travel~!

Also a 50g Darlie toothpaste!
I love darlie toothpaste cause all of them smell soooo minty and fresh!
Really keeps me awake after brushing my teeth!

How to get a good night's sleep

Tossing and turning all night without getting a wink of sleep can go on to affect your whole day. Most of us have enough to worry about without something as simple as an unsatisfactory night's rest getting in the way. It's about time we got this sleeping thing nailed, so bear these tips in mind the next time you head off to bed.

The right routine
This can be difficult for people with an irregular working pattern, besides those of us who like to stay up to the small hours and lie in until lunch on the weekends. However, a regular routine is the basis of a healthy sleeping pattern and involves more than regimented timing. Try incorporating a relaxing bath, some gentle music and a cup of cocoa into your evening: scientific studies have shown that the traditional teatime treat really can help you sleep! 

Getting up at the same time each day is also important - tempting as it may be to lie in late on a Sunday, your body won't thank you for it on Monday morning.

Mattress matters

Although you might claim that you don't notice your lumpy mattress, any small discomfort can cause you to fidget and disrupt your sleep. If you can't remember when you last had a new bed, think about treating yourself to something special and stylish, like one of these divans at Littlewoods. If you can't wait to get into it, you'll sleep all the better. 

Remember to change your bedding regularly and keep the clutter in your bedroom to a minimum: it should be a zone of relaxation, not a reminder of your hectic life outside.

Bothersome bedfellows
Some couples will refuse to even consider it, but a study from Ryerson University in Toronto has found that sleeping apart from your partner can make for a sounder night's kip. Romantic as it is to snuggle up together, you might be less happy in the morning when you've been fighting over the covers all night long. Consider moving to separate beds for one night - you never know, it might make all the difference. Be sure to keep pets out of the bedroom too: however much you love them, they won't help you sleep any better.


Food for thought
We've all been told to avoid large meals, caffeine and alcohol before bed, but sleeping well isn't just about what not to eat. There are plenty of things that will help you fall asleep fast and wake up feeling great in the morning. If hot milk doesn't appeal, try a cup of chamomile tea. Chamomile is known for its calming effects, and several brands offer a chamomile and vanilla version if you prefer something with a sweeter edge. For a light pre-bed snack, try a banana - like milk they contain L-tryptophan, which helps your brain to relax.
A good night's sleep comes from feeling serene so let go of the day's anxieties. You'll be much better prepared to face the world the next day if you leave the weight of it off your shoulders at night.

good night,

New Hair Colour

 Hello everyone!!

Recently i dyed my hair lighter!

Actually i wasn't allowed to cause my ends are still very damaged...
but i want a change..


so jerry suggested on bleaching strands and lighten the overall to achieve the light coloured hair i want.

 Messy hair before doing anything

 keith is there to make his hair too..


 hehehe he's colouring his hair to the same colour i'll be having..

 highlights done...

 now overall..
scalp itchy!!

this treatment is a miracle..
managed to make my hair sooo smooth and tangle free!

overall is ashy tone!

 if you realised, the base colour is not very light but the highlights are placed strategically to make the overall look brighter!

 tangle free hair~

I'm loving it!

oh man.. i really love ash colours >.<

if only my hair is strong and healthy, i would dye ash every single time!

but Jerry is there to make them healthier now

if you want to  colour your hair, i would really suggest
