My Go-To Makeup Kit | Office

Hello again, it's me the morbidly lazy blogger who actually thought of quit blogging forever.  Seriously it's a fcking struggle you guys hahahaha...  

However, there's another hardcore struggle for me tho that is waking up extra early for work just because I need to do my makeup.  Yes the first 6 months into the job of course you still got the hype tho but now, bitch, I'd just wake up, shower and contemplating to kill myself for the next 8 hours.

The first 23 years of my life, I have never thought of having a go-to makeup kit would be a necessity because I have never been this tired and my face have not constantly breaking out as much as it is now but now I finally get it why Benefit selling little makeup kits although it is mainly targeted for travel purpose but as for me it is office worthy.  Apparently I have a lot of makeup in my collection and adding more shit would make me feel guilty to the old ones since I'm not using them that often.  (DEFINITELY BUYING MORE MAKEUP THE SECOND I GET OUT OF THE HOUSE)

Considering I have tons of crap in my vanity, I just had a mini beauty bin journey and shortlisted all my stuff that I might throw out but they still perform well on my face.  So here you go;

Most importantly keeping it minimal in my pouch

Finally it's here!!! | Colorpop Old VS New swatch

Remember like a month ago I wanted to make a swatch of my old and new Colourpop liquid lipstick (matte and metallic)?  

So here you go;

Their eyeliner pot still sucks.

2017 | Birthday Haul

 So yes, I finally turned 24.  Hell fucking yeah!

Nothing much on my birthday tho because I don't like parties, so I just have a good (and emotional breakdown) of myself for the joyous day.  The only regret I had was not taking an annual leave as my boss actually did encourage me for 4 seconds to suppose taking a day off and locked myself in my bedroom.

Being 24 sucks but I have a job now so I can buy all the shit that I wanted tho.  Anyways, thank you to all who wished for a graceful birthday.  

So here's my birthday haul;

1) Jefferee Star Velour Lip Scrub in Orange Soda

Only 2 words can describe this: FUCKING DELICIOUS

This lip scrub is sugar-based and very safe to lick and swallow.  Not to mention that my fat ass can't stop licking this thing and probably has smoother lips than a baby's butt.

2) Colorpop Creme Gel Pot in Call Me

I ordered Swerve but got this one instead.  Okay I can accept that.  However, this eyeliner is fucking horrible.  Maybe I'm cursed when it comes to gel pot eyeliner but seriously it is dry and gets drier really fast on my eyelids.  I even use a Sigma angled eyeliner brush tip but still drawing a line is very impossible form me.

Seriously I need help on softening this formula.  Any ideas?

3) Colorpop Ultra Matte/Metallic Liquid Lipstick in Embellish and Zebra

These 2 formulas all I can say is EXCELLENT!!!  I was looking for a very dark brown lipstick and I just found my lips soul matte mate.  The metallic Zebra just blew my mind because it is very comfortable.

Oh well, I guess I'll continue the color swatch of these new liquid lippies compared to my old 2015 ones.

Thanks for reading, have a nice day.

Recollections Creative Year Unicorn Spiral Planner | What's inside?


Well holo again everyone.  As today I'm going to share to you guys my new Recollection's spiral bound planner which I'm suppose to use it for next year, HOWEVER it is an 18-month planner and starts from July 2017, so yeah I started using it already.  

Bitch, this planner is thick as fuck!!  Not to mention the paper quality as for me is excellent compared to the lame thin Typo planner papers.  Basically Micheal's made this as a dupe for Erin Condren (as you can see the physicals features of it) and a little bit of Mambi's Happy Planner inspired on the inside.  

No, you will not get this in Malaysia unless you get to find a personal shopper to buy it for you and no Micheal's don't ship to Malaysia, I've contacted their customer service beforehand.  I had a wonderful journey with my personal shopper who is also a planner addict and she made her brother who study in USA to get it for us.  Thank you so much again :D

Oh well, let's have a look what's inside. 

Are you ready guys? Here we go...

Told ya it's thick

When I received this, BITCH I'M SHOOK!!!

However, I truly hate the dividers.  I was expecting for something extra and over the top Unicorn-y just like the back cover but they're just some pastel blerghhh.  I saw dividers of other planners in this spiral collection and they're more (dopier?) than this.  The only thing the boosts it's sale is the shaker front cover.  

Cover (which you can removed just like EC): 5/5
Dividers: 2/5
Printing & other features: 4.5/5
Paper quality: 10/5 (seriously I love the quality)
Overall: 4.8/5

Still worth it!

I'll have to forget the idea of getting a planner for next year.  This is very enough for me to use as personal planner for next year tho..   Why I said personal? Because I have another new binder for my business planning.  

Very well, thank you so much for reading this entry. 
Happy planning!!!

2017 Goth (Nu Goth they said)

Nu goth which is in my opinion is a millennial Instagram goth that is somehow wearing less heavy clothing but they maintain the eccentricity (is that even a word?) of the sub-culture.  Nu (New) Goth is basically a modernize easy looking dark fashion with some hipster influence to it.  Honestly I don't hate Nu Goth because my country is so damn hot and minimize my goth outfits does help me a lot away from dehydration. 

Remember Mavis, the vampire kid from Hotel Transylvania?  She is an example that holds the vibes of a Nu Goth with that century old black mini dress shirt, and mary jane flats.  Another part of my observation is these fashionistas added some Wicca influence with all these aura moon stones, crescent pendants and hexagonal obsidian jewelries.  Not to forget manufacturers of this millennial dark fashion had printed white faces of the Sun and Moon, and gore looking Unicorns on jet black dress shirts.  Not to mention the hair tho.  It rather be a very black bob or colorful waves of mermaid hair.

Anyways, here's my very own interpretation of a Nu Goth.

Wavy hair.  Pardon my brows, I don't do brows.

Instagram makeup with cat's eye and dark lips.  Brighter eye shadow instead of the common black and red.

I'm wearing a liquid lipstick from LA Girl cosmetic and this color sucks on the build up.  I had to apply a few layers just to look good. Not excellent but good.

Free flow black shirt with modern cut outs.  Look what's on my neck!
It's a layered crescent and black hexagonal pendant. 

Lastly, I just had to post this.

Thank for reading ayy.
Have a nice gothy day :D
