Liz Lisa Autumn 2014 Collection

Hey guys!


I know that lately I haven't been updating my blog as much as I should have, and I feel that my blog is starting to lose the meaning from when I first created this blog.. I originally started this blog so I could share my favourite makeup and fashion items as well as my favourite places in Japan. Unfortunately my recent blog posts haven't really been about that and it's actually been a while since I've done a fashion post.

Anyway! Recently Liz Lisa released some new photos of their new Autumn 2014 collection!

Aren't these coordinates SO cute?!? I'm in love with the bottom right, and the far left one!!

These are also super cute! They're more "grown up" looking but I love it! Lately I've been liking less of the really frilly/girly Liz Lisa stuff and have been liking the more "grown up" look more!

Some close up of my favourite outfits:

I am IN LOVE with this one!! I don't care what happens but I need to get this skirt and blouse set!! I know it is still quite girly but it also looks a *little* bit more mature as well!!

142-6010-0_main
I really do love this dress!! I do have one a little similar so I probably won't get this one, but I do really love it!

142-5009-0_main
This one is also SUPER cute! I don't think I will get this since it's probably a bit *too* cute to wear around in Australia haha... but nonetheless it is still super adorable!

142-3003-0_main
I love how chic this one looks! I do have some similar pieces worn in here already but it does give me some outfit ideas for the future!

I LOVE this trench coat! Unfortunately I do have a similar one from the Spring 2014 collection, but the extra piece on the trench coat looks super cute!!

and lastly...

I NEED THOSE SHOES! Lately I have been LOVING Liz Lisa shoes! Especially the ones with the platforms at the front. I have similar pairs from the Spring 2014 collection and they are SUPER comfortable! It doesn't feel like you are wearing heels at all and you can actually walk around all day in them! I was SO bummed when I couldn't get last year's Autumn Collection ones, but I actually like these better! I think I will get them in brown! I love how Liz Lisa FINALLY is stocking shoes in size S! They never did before so I could never buy shoes from Liz Lisa, but I'm so glad I finally can now!

Anyway, what do you guys think of this collection?

Revlon Photoready Airbrush Mousse Foundation Review

Hi everyone!

Today I'm going to be reviewing the Revlon Photoready Airbrush Mousse Foundation! I bought this item at a Target in Australia for the Drugstore Prom Makeup tutorial.

Now I know I've said this many times, but Western drugstore makeup is so damn expensive in Australia. That's why I never use it because usually it doesn't suit my skin, and I can find Asian cosmetics online for cheaper. Or I can also buy highend cosmetics online for cheaper. Anyway, I bought this foundation because I really wanted to film a drugstore video for my subbies who were having their proms soon, so I picked this up.

I've used Revlon foundations before, I used to swear by the Revlon Colorstay foundation in the past. However I found that if I used the Revlon Colorstay foundation everyday for about a week, my skin would start to turn red and would break out. So I would use my foundation for about a week, stop for about 2 days and keep going with the cycle. Not the best way to treat your skin. (This was before I went to Japan and discovered Japanese makeup).

Anyway, I have used many Western drugstore foundations before from Maybelline, Rimmel, Covergirl etc.. None of them really suited me because of my Asian skintone. However, Revlon is one of the only foundations that did, so I decided to give Revlon another try~

Shake well before you use
vlcsnap-2014-04-15-16h15m55s87

Be extra careful when you are pumping it out, because it's super easy to pump out way too much

It pumps out like a mousse, but when you touch it, you can just blend it into your skin
vlcsnap-2014-04-15-16h16m16s31

I find it works best if you apply with a stippling brush

Left side - foundation, right side- nothing
vlcsnap-2014-04-15-16h16m43s50

As you can see, it is quite natural and it does even out my skintone perfectly!

Full face (excuse the derpyness)
vlcsnap-2014-04-15-16h16m58s199

Final Verdict:
Overall I actually really like this foundation. I haven't worn this foundation everyday so I can't judge whether or not it will break me out, but wearing it for a full day doesn't. I've been trying to wear makeup less and less lately to let my skin breathe.

Pros:
- Very natural, great for everyday wear
- It looks great in photos and in videos too!

Cons:
- Expensive in Australia (cost me around $35 for it)
- The packaging is a bit hard to use.. it's really easy to pump out too much foundation

08/07/14 Sydney! Youtube Bootcamp Day #2

Hi everyone!

Sydney (55 of 129)

Today I'm going to be telling you guys about day 2 of the Youtube Business Bootcamp! I didn't really take many photos on the day, I woke up early and got to the Google office early to have breakfast. Day 2 was mainly about public speaking and how we can improve ourselves for media interviews. I've had a few media interviews before, and to be honest, I have no idea how to present myself. I've always made videos for fun on Youtube, I never thought about getting attention from anyone let alone being on the front page of a newspaper! I definitely learnt a lot that day and will take what I learnt to help myself improve in the future!

After the bootcamp I went back to the hotel and organized with Steven to meet again for dinner. Meliney from Meliney Nail Art also came along which was nice! I was meeting two friends for the first time so I was super excited!

With Nancy and Wendy!
Nancy is also a Youtuber! I've known her for a few years and she is so sweet! Check out her Youtube channel if you have time! http://www.youtube.com/BeautyxBB

I've known Wendy for almost 10 years and believe it or not, this is the first time we have met in person! Back when I was in highschool, I used to be crazy obsessed with Australian Idol and used to participate in forums very regularly after school. I met Wendy on the forums and we used to spend countless of hours talking about everything! After I got over that phase, we still kept in contact and finally, after 10 years we're able to meet for the very first time!

We all went out to dinner together, Steven took us to a really nice Greek place in Darling Harbour

Back to School Outfits Lookbook

Hey everyone!

A few weeks ago a friend of mine came back from his (long) holiday haha, and we teamed up to film a video on my channel! I'm so happy with how this video turned out!

The team I worked with was "The Travelling Videographer" Since the video had so many great feedbacks, I'm going to be teaming up with them more often to create more videos!

Anyway! I wanted to film a "Back to School" Look book so the guys from "The Travelling Videographer" helped me out!

Here is how it turned out!



Here are just some photos they took on the day:











Hope you liked the photos + video! Let me know what else you want me to film with these guys!
