My 2016 Beauty Favorites

I slept at around 3am and got up at 9am as usual fml. My body clock is no joke ๐Ÿ˜“ but I think my body can't take it. I'll probably take a nap later the day.

Everyone is doing their beauty favorites today! I've thought of doing a round up of my favorite beauty products as well and talking more on things that I've not spoken in details over the whole month. Let's begin now coz it will probably take the whole day as usual.


Face Primer


TBH I've not tried enough face primers to say which is the best Primer of 2016. I've only used two and out of that two, my favorite is Maybelline's Baby Skin Pore Eraser Primer.

My Favorite Lipstick 2016

Morninggggg

Today I have to go out to run some errands with mummy so I woke up slightly earlier than usual ๐Ÿ˜‰ sighhh have to go settle my summons as well before I forget them again. I don't wanna end up in courttttt. Now I just have to find out where to pay them. Don't know why they must separate places to pay summons. So troublesome!

Remember this palette that I've mentioned in my favorite palettes post *here*? I said that I'll use it during Christmas celebrations since I've not used it for a long time.

My Favorite Liquid Lipsticks Part 2

Omg my headache is finally goneeeee.

Now I can peacefully post up the rest of my favorite liquid lipstick. Again, imma talk about my non-Matte liquid lipsticks. I don't buy many non-Matte lippies coz I hate reapplying and also getting lipsticks on my cup/tumblers/bottles. These have quite good staying power (but still transfers) and stain my lips. So I don't really have to reapply them as often as I have to.

3. Colourpop Ultra Metallic Lips in 3-Way  



When Colourpop came out with Metallics, I was dying to try it. I wanted to see how Metallics trend would look on me. But the reviews weren't that fantastic at first. So I waited for quite some time before getting my first Ultra Metallic Lips.

My Favorite Liquid Lipstick Part 1

Good morningggggg

I think I got all my strength back after sleeping in till ่‡ช็„ถ้†’. I hope I'll be able to post more stuff today since I'm ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป


The Lee sisters (Sheena, Sheene and Sheerin) got me a Christmas/birthday gift ๐ŸŽ❤️. It was everything I loveeeee

Watching Goblin right now. Anybody watching it as well? It is so good. Honestly it's better than The Legend of The Blue Sea.

I'm guessing the Grim Reaper is actually the incarnation of the king that the Goblin hate. Also Sunny is the queen's incarnation. But the queen is supposed to be the goblin's love of his life. The Goblin loves Eun Tak now so...did his heart change? I'm so confused ๐Ÿ˜ 

As promised, today I will be talking about my favorite lip products ๐Ÿ’„๐Ÿ’„๐Ÿ’„ I've finally decided that I'm going to separate the liquid lipstick and the normal lipsticks to two parts. Today I'm gonna talk about the liquid lipsticks first. 

As I was going through my liquid lipsticks, I came to realized that there are really not many that I used. I've only used about 8 from my overflowing collection of lip products. I've also removed some which i know I don't like and won't be using in the future.

I'm going to start off with my favorite matte liquid lipsticks right now ๐Ÿ˜Š
 
5. Colourpop Ultra Matte Lips in Kae

  
Kae is from the Kaepop collection which had been discontinued from Colourpop. I was kinda sad that it got discontinued coz I love the color. But it wasn't my favorite formula so I'm okay with it. Hopefully I can find something similar from other brands.

I've talked about the different formulas of liquid lipsticks from Colourpop earlier on. You can find them *here* I've also briefly talked about what I dislike about the Ultra Matte Lips (UML) formula as well. So do read that.

This shade actually looks very goth but it's so gorgeous la. I've only worn it out once. If I only I love it, I would have worn it more.

Pros:
• very pigmented (that's one swatch on my hand)
• easy to apply on the lips

Cons:
• difficult to remove
• melt off messily after wearing awhile
• not long lasting as promised 

The first and second cons put me off permanently. It made me look like I'm kid who stole chocolate to eat ๐Ÿ™„ 

But I'll be repurchasing an UML soon. The more newer formulas tho. Coz I heard that they have improved their UML. Also read that it's not as bad as this one that I've tried. Just need to research which are the newer ones first la.

Ranking: 0.5๐Ÿ’„ out of 5

Yes it is that bad 

4. NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream

This is pretty popular everywhere on YouTube and dayrebeauty community. Unfortunately I'm not a big fan of it. I don't mind it but it's just not something that I'll buy again. I don't know if it's just this shade or what. But I just don't think it's as good as everyone has said it is.

It is a very pretty pink shade but just don't work well for me. I can find the same shade in a better formula I'm sure.

Pros:
• beautiful shade
• easy to apply on the lips 

Cons:
• sheer when swatched and sheer when applied on lips
• not transfer proof
• doesn't 100% dries down to matte
• drying on the lips

I might just go get a darker color to try out again to see if it's coz of my lips that it looks sheer or what. But I'm gonna delay it a bit coz I'm just not very fond of it la. Might as well spend that money to try other lippies.

Ranking: ๐Ÿ’„๐Ÿ’„

3. Sleek Matte Me in Shabby Chic 


This is fairly popular as well. I wanted to get it for some time d but didn't wanna pay for shipping wtf. So when Puff said she wanted to get this, I quickly got it with her to get free shipping muahahaha~

If you haven't realized yet, I buy lippies in almost the same shade ๐Ÿ˜’ it's either nude or dark colors. Most of the lippies that I'm showing right now are almost all nudes.

Pros:
• pigmented
• easy to apply
• quite long lasting

Cons:
• flakes uglily after some time
• difficult to remove 

I've only worn it once. I kinda like it but I can't really remember why. I'll wear it more times to give a more in depth review. Still, I love it better than ones before this. So I'm gonna keep it in this list and at this high ranking.

Ranking: ๐Ÿ’„๐Ÿ’„๐Ÿ’„

2. The Balm Meet Matt(e) Hughes 


I didn't put in the shade name in the title coz I have a few of these liquid lipsticks and I like a lot of them. Having more than one is already a sign of me loving the lippie a lot ❤️

I've been talking a lot about Meet Matt(e) Hughes. So no surprise that it's in the list and at such high ranking.

Pros:
• easy to apply
• long lasting
• smells fantastic

Cons:
• difficult to remove
• not many variety of colors in the collection 

I've said it a thousand times but I'm gonna say it again. This is one of ultimate favorite liquid lipsticks. I'm gonna repurchase till they discontinue it...which I hope they don't coz I love them that much. 

Ranking: ๐Ÿ’„๐Ÿ’„๐Ÿ’„๐Ÿ’„๐Ÿ’„ 

1. Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick 


I've talked about this as many times as I've talked about Meet Matt(e) Hughes I think hahahahaha.

I'll shut up and go straight into the swatch hehe.

Again I didn't put in a specific shade name in the title coz I have more than one shade.

Pros:
• easy to apply 
• extremely long lasting
• wide range of colors
• transfer proof 

Cons:
• difficult to remove 

Ranking: ๐Ÿ’„๐Ÿ’„๐Ÿ’„๐Ÿ’„๐Ÿ’„ 

Those are my favorite matte liquid lipstick. I wanted to go straight into the non-Matte liquid lipsticks but I'm having a headache right now...just out of no where. Sighhhh... I guess I'll have to continue tomorrow la.

I'll see you guys tomorrow with another post yea...

Bubbye for now ๐Ÿ˜˜

Update on Resolutions 2016: from March up until now

Sorry I've not updated on my resolutions for so damn long. I've had the draft for March-April but never published (>. >) Don't know what's wrong with me. Then I got very busy in the months after. When I was free...which is now, my laptop broke down (you might have know about it if you read my Dayre *here*). Anyways in case you've missed the January-February one *here* is the link. If you want to read all about my resolutions, click *here*.

Let's jump right into it. I'm expecting it to be a very long post since it's from March =/. So I'll try to talk less unrelated stuff *fingers crossed* You know how I can digress sometimes =P Sorry it will be without photos this time round coz I have not fully learned how to use my computer yet (> . >) I promise the next post will be filled with photos once I've learned how.

1. FINISH READING THE ENGLISH BIBLE BY JUNE

So it's August now...I'm sorry to tell you guys that I have not finished reading the English bible. I've been reading the bible since 2012. I wanted to finish it in 2015 but now even in 2016 I still can't finish it =(

Maybe I can do it by the end of the year la. I'm 84% done as of now. 8 more books till I finish the whole bible. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I will at least try to finish it by this year.

2. START READING THE CHINESE BIBLE

Wait just a lil longer Chinese bible...I'll start on you soon.

3. HAVE A CONSISTENT DAILY FITNESS ROUTINE

I've failed terribly =( I didn't do much exercise at all. Maybe just once or twice per month (=.=) I've also cut down from doing 30 minutes of exercise to just 15 minutes.

Recently I've actually stopped doing any exercises at all. I've been unwell and am not in the best condition to work out. I hope in a few weeks time I can get back to do at least some exercise into my routine. Maybe a lil light jogging? Or what I like to call it, wogging. Walking + jogging = wogging.

4. ORGANIZE GATHERINGS WITH MY BESTIES

This is the one of the few resolutions that was going on quite well consistently through this few months. Once I got the hang of the computer, I'll start putting up posts of all the gatherings that I've been to.

5. ORGANIZE GATHERINGS WITH MY FAMILY WHEN I HAVE THE CHANCE

Met up with my cousins in KL in June. Post coming up as well =)

My cousin, David left to study in US earlier this month. Didn't manage to do a get-together. Damn sad la =( But nemind la. We can always chat on whatsapp.

My daddy's side's relatives also came to visit us. But there were no pics taken coz they only hung out at our house. But yeah still had a gathering la.

6. MAINTAINING A STABLE MONTHLY INCOME

Was doing pretty well for all the months except for June. It dropped a little which was kinda worrying for me. I've not gotten the full income status for July and August. But I'm expecting it to be quite bad coz I've lost some income and also I've taken quite a lot of leave due to me being sick. Sigh...

7. SAVE UP TO MY TARGETED AMOUNT IN THE BANK- Not relevant yet. Have to wait till end of the year to see I've made it.

8. TAKE AND PASS MY GRADE 7 VIOLIN EXAM
In January I've registered for my exam and in April, the date of the exam has been confirmed. Exam was on the 4th of July. I had also passed it \(^^)/

Unfortunately I didn't manage to get into the merit zone =( Missed by a few marks. Dammit!!! But I'm glad I've passed. Now I only have the last grade to go. Woohoooooo~

This is the first resolution that I've officially struck off. Yay!!! I'm so proud of myself =) Now time to work harder on the rest la.

9. START TO PREPARE FOR MY PIANO DIPLOMA EXAM

I've started to play some pieces but haven't decide on the pieces yet. I'm planning to go to music stores to get some books from some composers I'm interested in trying out. Try out those and see if I found the repertoire that I want. Maybe I should go get some opinions from my tutor. I guess this means that I've started preparing right? I can sort of strike this off my resolution as well right?

I'm not sure tho if I'm going to take the exam anytime soon. With my schedule uncertain for the months to come, I think I'll probably see if I can plan for the exam in 2018...which is damn long summore. But I definitely hope I can take the exam and pass it in this lifetime.

10. TRAVEL TO ONE COUNTRY OVERSEAS

Singapore trip was cancelled =( Our Malaysian Ringgit is just too weak for us to travel to Singapore now la. So sad coz I wanted to visit my new nephew, Elijah (T.T). For now can only see him on Snapchat =/

We were planning another overseas trip. A trip to celebrate our wedding anniversary, couple anniversary, SR's birthday and my violin exam's result. It's a full celebration trip lolol. But like I said above, our schedules have totally changed and uncertain for now. We had to cancel our trip this year and also another family trip to the overseas next year. Sigh... totally had to "X" this off for now. But it's all good lah. We can safe the money and probably go for trips within Malaysia for now.

11. READ TWELVE BOOKS

For the past eight months, I've read seven books. My progress slowed down a lot if compared with the beginning of the year. My excuse was I was busy preparing for my violin exam and also my students' exam. But now that I've done with all the exams, I'll try to buck up as much as possible. One book per month is not that difficult mah right?

For recap purposes, here are the books that I've read...

  • Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (J.K Rowling)
  • Rapunzel: The One With All The Hair (Wendy Mass)
  • Catching Fire (Suzanne Collins)
  • Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them (J.K Rowling)
  • Warm Bodies (Isaac Marion)
  • Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (J.K Rowling)
  • Me Before You (Jojo Moyes)


And here are the books that I'm reading as of now...

  • The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organising (Marie Kondo)
  • The Happiness Project (Rubin Gretchen)
  • String Attached
  • The Notebook (Nicholas Sparks)
  • ็ญ‰ไธ€ไบบ。ๅ’–ๅ•ก (ไนๆŠŠๅˆ€)

I just need five more books to complete my resolution la. I need to speed read like mad.

12. SUPPORT SOPRAPIT FOR THE WHOLE YEAR
I've transferred the money to her for March and April. But for now I've not transferred anymore coz I was too busy. I'll get it done soon lah of course.

I have exactly four months left to cross off all of my resolutions...minus one coz its not possible to cross off as of now. I really hope I can cross off more than half of it la coz like every year I've made a lot of resolutions but never really got to do it properly. But I'm glad this year I've made a lot of effort to make each resolutions happen. I'm very proud of myself for that. What I need to do now is to continue to push on for the last four months. How you guys doing for your resolutions? I hope everything is going well as well.

I will try to blog as much as possible coz honestly I've been slacking so much on blogging here. There was a time I was quite active on Dayre but I've slowed down as well when I started to get unwell. I'll try to update both platforms as much as possible la.

I'll see you guys in the upcoming posts.

See ya~
