Shu Uemura The Lightbulb Foundation Review

Hi everyone!

For those who have been following for a while would know that my favourite foundation is the Shu Uemura Face Architect Foundation. Last year Shu Uemura released a new foundation called "The Lightbulb". I picked it up from Singapore Changi airport when I was coming back from Paris last year. I got it in 774 Light Beige.

The foundation came inside a big box, since it also came with it's own beauty blender.

Coverage:

I had eyeliner on my hand and covered it with the foundation. As you can see the foundation has great coverage.

As you can see the coverage is really good

Final look:

Final verdict:
I do like this foundation, however I would rather stick to my Shu Uemura Face Architect foundation. While this foundation has improved in some ways, I find it to cakey for my liking. The coverage is great so if you're someone that wants more coverage, this would be perfect for you. The beauty blender is great and blends really well, however I don't find myself using it much since it's more time consuming (I just usually use my fingers to blend), and washing it is kinda hard. But anyway!

Pros:
- Great coverage
- Doesn't break me out
- Comes with a blender which works well
- Looks great on Asian skin

Cons:
- Expensive
- Too cakey for my liking

Kao Liese Bubble Hair Color Review (Milk Tea Brown)

Hi guys!

I get a lot of questions on what I use to dye my hair so today I'm doing a review of the Kao Liese Bubble Hair Color! I usually dye my hair using the colour "Milk Tea Brown"

I usually never dye my hair in a salon because it's SO expensive! I prefer to buy my own hairdye and do it at home myself since it usually just costs me $15 to do so!

I've heard lots of good things about the Kao Liese Bubble Hair Color so I decided to try it out myself!

vlcsnap-2014-09-22-10h15m11s205

The packaging:

Inside the box you get~

Instructions
vlcsnap-2014-09-22-10h16m19s117

It is SO easy to set up, only takes a few minutes!
Pour the hair colour into the foam solution
vlcsnap-2014-09-22-10h16m30s218

Rotate the solution to mix. DO NOT SHAKE and DO NOT be rough with it.
vlcsnap-2014-09-22-10h16m34s7

I like to wrap a towel around myself to avoid mess
vlcsnap-2014-09-22-10h16m37s39

Replace the lid with the pump
vlcsnap-2014-09-22-10h16m44s117

Pump out the solution and apply onto your hair! Be generous with it. I was only applying a little bit at the start but seriously, you get SO much foam so go crazy!
vlcsnap-2014-09-22-10h16m52s177

Massage it well into your hair, then leave it for about 30 minutes.
vlcsnap-2014-09-22-10h16m56s223

Wash your hair (and use the shampoo provided)
vlcsnap-2014-09-22-10h17m13s140
vlcsnap-2014-09-22-10h17m20s204

And you're done! No more roots!
vlcsnap-2014-09-22-10h17m25s9

Final thoughts..

I absolutely LOVE this! It's so cheap and SO easy to do by yourself. I don't like going to the salon and having to pay $100 to get my hair coloured when I can do it at home for less than $15! I definitely recommend this, I will definitely repurchase!

MAC Mineralize Blush Warm Soul Review

Hi everyone!

Today I'm going to be reviewing the MAC Mineralize Blush in Warm Soul. I got this blush when I went to San Francisco for about $15! (Which is super cheap compared to Australia, it's more than double the price here :( ) I really wanted a blush from MAC but didn't know which one. I like natural blushes since they go well with almost everything and you can wear it everyday!

vlcsnap-2014-04-15-16h13m21s79

This one is my first MAC blush and I am absolutely loving it!

vlcsnap-2014-04-15-16h14m05s2
vlcsnap-2014-04-15-16h14m09s49
I just love how natural it looks!

Pros:
- Super natural and great for everyday wear
- Lasts all day!

Cons:
- Expensive (in Australia, so yeah best to buy it overseas if you're Australian)
- The packaging is kinda not... sturdy enough. If you look at the photo with my MAC lid up, the plastic bit actually fell off and I can't put it back together again :(

The top is from ARROW, one of my favourite places to shop in Japan for blouses. They always have the cutest blouses there! The shorts are from Pinky Girls. I absolutely love them! The shoes are from Feminine Cafe. I really want more shoes that I can wear in the summer haha T_T I have way too many boots!

If you like this outfit then please hype it on Lookbook!

Liz Lisa 2015 Fukubukuro Reveal!

Hi everyone!

Just yesterday Liz Lisa released what will be inside the 2015 Fukubukuros so I thought I'd share them with you today!

They revealed what will be in all the bags except for the Web Limited bag.

First up is the 20,000yen bags.

The pink version:


item02

I'm glad I didn't get this bag. I wasn't thinking about it anyway since the bag wasn't really cute looking and it's something I probably won't use. The items inside are kind of... meh to me. They seem a bit too plain for Liz Lisa clothes.

The white version:

item03

I like this one better than the pink bag. The clothes are a lot cuter. For some reason though, I feel that the items in this bag are items they couldn't sell in last year's winter collection. The skirt and the sweater on the right look really familiar... Still, I think that this bag has clothes that are much cuter than the pink one.

Next up is the small suitcase, the one I ordered.

item04

To be honest the first time I saw the items I was a bit disappointed. The coat is almost identical to the one from last year's lucky bag, but just a bit shorter. The camisole... I don't know but I don't like it when Liz Lisa includes camisoles in their lucky bags. I have way too many of them and you feel that you don't really get much out of a camisole. The dress is cute though, so at least I like something in the bag! The coat I do like as well but the camisole... I'll find some use for it lol.

Last one is the More More 3 Way bag

item06
I'm SO glad I didn't get this bag. I was so close to getting it because you can order it with the small suitcase. The reason? Liz Lisa sold a dress identical to that in last year's winter collection which I already have. The dress is cute so I really do like it, but I already have one identical to it. The cardigan I also have something almost identical when Liz Lisa went to Paris. Cute items in here, but I'm glad I didn't get it since I already have those items!

What do you guys think of the lucky bags now that they've been revealed?
