I turned 22 last Friday. Because one of my good friends couldn't make it to the dinner on the day itself, my friends organised a dinner and dessert the night before, and my wonderful bf took me out on a date on the actual day! My 2-day celebration was wonderful~ ♥ Keep reading~ !


Livia Turns 22~ ! and Love Never Dies! ♥

Among the many drugstore deals at the moment, Superdrug is offering a 3 for 2 on Revlon products. To be honest, I have never been attracted to Revlon. For a drugstore brand, their product prices are quite on the high end of the spectrum, which the quality from (drugstore swatching) didn't live up to. With these products however, I was really surprised with the colours and the quality, plus with the sale going on, I decided to try them out! I ended up with the gorgeous Summer Suede eyeshadow quad and two lip glosses: Coral Reef and Peach Petal. Reviews and swatches after the jump~ ! ♥

Illamasqua Torture is a sheer orange-coral lipgloss. I love how non-sticky the finish is, and the sheerness makes it wearable ♥


What do you think of this colour? Would you wear it? ♥

Korres lipstick in Coral is a medium-toned coral colour. It glides on effortlessly on the lips, and feels like a MAC lustre finish lipstick. The SPF10 is a bonus too! ♥


Would you wear this colour?


Lip Swatch: Korres lipstick in Coral

I've finally decided that I no longer like MAC's sticky standard lipgloss finish as the stickiness just drives my lips to flake! MAC Cremesheen glasses however - I love. So smooth and nonsticky, they look and feel creamy on the lips! After the gorgeous Muhsine at Bubblegarm blogged about how similar these Barry M lip gloss wands are to my favourite lipgloss finish, I was curious to try them out, and I definitely agree with her. I am hooked on these lipglosses, and they're deliciously scented too~! ♥

Hi everyone! I've been quite a naughty girl lately- I've recently been hauling some products all because of the ongoing sales. I went through the sale section of the ASOS site and got a few things: Illamasqua sheer lipgloss in Torture, Korres lipstick in Coral and an ASOS Paint by Ciate duo set in Kate & Cheryl. As you can probably tell, I'm in a bit of an orange/coral kick lately! Keep on reading for my initial thoughts and swatches ♥

Hi everyone! I just got some NARS blushes from a blog sale, and I'd like to share some photos and swatches with you all. These are my first ever NARS blushes and I'm so thrilled to have them! The quality of these blushes are amazing. Smooth, buttery soft and pigmented. I got Super Orgasm, Luster, Silvana, and Madly. They all seem to be good summer shades, and I love them~! Uh oh- I sense a possible new addiction! ♥

Hi everyone! Last week was such a busy week for me. I moved into a new place, and our Pathology course just started on Monday too with a full day of lectures everyday! It was also my bf's birthday on Friday so I also had to organise our special event. I'll share more about it in a future post, but here's a long overdue makeup look using one of the lipstains from the past MAC Art Supplies collection! ♥
