"My Lips But Better" Lipsticks: Urban Decay, Benefit, Loreal, Too Faced & MAC

After reading Jen From Head to Toe's MLBB (My Lips But Better) Lipsticks post (here), I am inspired to share my own MLBB. I hope this post will be particular useful to my UK readers, as Jen is in America, so not all products she recommends are available in the UK.

The Pink that Suits You - Bourjois and Dior

When I first started wearing makeup, pink lips & pink blush would be my default colour. Pink is pretty & girly, I thought it was a foolproof colour on everyone. But it is not until when I started looking at drugstore or at any make up counters that I realised there are 50 (and more) shades of pink in this world! I was confused as to how would I know which shades suit me & which shades I should avoid?

It made me wonder - what if there is a blush or a lipstick that could cleverly adapt & transform their colour  to suit my skin tone ? I think I have prayed so much that someone must have heard it.

Review & Swatches: Zoeva Graphic Eyes+ Eyeliner

I am not familiar with Zoeva. It is not a brand that get mentioned a lot in the UK beauty blogging world, so I looked up their website. Zoeva Cosmetics is a German brand, founded in 2008 by owner Zoe Bolkou. The brand was started out with a collection of 10 makeup brushes, and one year later they were already shipping to most of the European countries. Their first makeup range was started in 2010.

NEW Benefit Boutique at Carnaby Street

Today was just like any Sunday afternoon when my sister Cynthy (@beautyorbread) & I went shopping on Oxford Street. We went round Carnaby Street in order to avoid the usual kids & parents crowds outside Hamleys, so glad we did! Otherwise we wouldn't be able to discover the opening of the brand new Benefit Boutique on Carnaby Street!
