Benefit - Benetint

This miniature Benetint has been in my makeup stash for months and I've finally busted it out and put it to the test! The packaging is nothing fancy. A classic nail varnish look-alike but only meant for the cheeks and lips. What peaked my interest is that it's suppose act as a blusher and also a lip stain. How crazy is that?

Currently Loving #1

Currently Loving is a new series on my blog where I'll be sharing various link which I love. Ranging from not only beauty, but also on food and home ideas/inspirations which I hope you will find it just as interesting as I do! Here are 3 links which I currently love:

1. How to master eyeliner by Lily Pebbles.
I love her blog. From her blogs, to beauty posts and tutorials, her tips and tricks are the best and I trust the reviews that she provides. Here she talks more about the different types of eyeliners and how to be a pro on it.

2.  You've Never Had Guac Like This Before — Seriously by Refinery29.
If you know me, you know that I love a little guac in my life. Well, not a little. More like A LOT. Just a quick recipe for you to try out during the weekend!

3. An Interior DIY in under five minutes: Framed Feathers by Chapter Friday.
This is such a simple yet brilliant idea to amp up your space without breaking the bank. Nothing fancy, which I really like.

How I apply eyeliner feat Benefit - They're Real Push Up Liner!

As promised! Initially I wanted to film it, but there were technical difficulties and I fucked the whole thing up haha. Hope a pictorial would do justice? On most days my eyeliner looks much more presentable than this, I swear! Maybe I should start making pictorials on how I use xx products and we'll make it a thing.....no? What do you guys think? Let me know on the comment section down below! To see the full review on the push up liner, click here.

Power Clutch

Reds, neutrals, pastels, which should I choose? It's always a massive dilemma whenever I look through my polish stash because the colour will stick on me for at least 4 days. Now, that's a commitment. After pondering for a good 5 minutes, I decided on Essie's Power Clutch. It's weird to have Essie on my nails. I have tons of it but never once talk about it on my blog except for Chubby Cheeks, which appeared in one of my favourites post. I briefly discussed it's deliciousness and staying power.

Waterproof Woes

We all have one of those days where you know, your eye makeup game is strong and all you want to do is to take shameless selfies with awesome lighting to show off your perfect blending skills or sharp winged liner to everyone on Instagram. But when you reach home, it is so damn hard to remove! Your makeup removers don't seem to work despite numerous rubs. What the hell, right? All you get is patchy flakes on the tops of your lashes and not forgetting racoon eyes the next day. Sounds familiar?

Touché Eclat for your lash line, Benefit style.

So much hype has been going around ever since the launch of Benefit's They're Real Push-Up Liner. I don't know why it took me so long, although I'm always the late bloomer whenever it comes to joining the bandwagon of cult beauty products. Nonetheless, my inner beauty junkie self was filled with glee when I purchased this at the Sephora counter last month. I've finally given it a go, and after 2 weeks, here's my take on it...
