NOTD: Essie Made to Honor

Hi Ladies,
here's a quick post about my nail polish at the moment. I'm wearing Essie, Made to Honor. The color is very sheer, but after 3-4 coats, I finally achieved the same color on the bottle. I'm so in love with this color. I've always been looking for a dusty rose color and I've finally found it!!! ^^

Till next time...~

I was sooooooo happy that day! Very close friends of mine were also graduation at the same time and all my family from Montreal was there to share that moment with me! My mom was super proud of me too!

Closet cleanup!!

Hey Ladies,
it's that time of the season again. Closet cleanup!!! I try to go through my entire closet at least once a year. Either right after winter or summer. My closet was looking really disorganized and there were so many clothes that I no longer wear that I needed to get ride of.

Here's how it looked like before...

I basically refolded everything and took out the clothes that I no longer wear.

Here's the sorting through on my bed and lamp...

And the clothes that I gave out for donation... 4 big piles of clothes!!

When my mom came back from HK, she got me this vertical hanger which saves lots of space. We all know how HK apartments are very small and saving space is a big thing there. This is what she got...

I'm hoping to find them in Toronto when I go on Monday! Will be there for 4 days with my brother, sister-in-law and nephew.

Here's how my closet looks like after the big clean up... (would need to clean my bags on top!)

How often do you do a big cleanup of your closet?
Till next time...~

Review: Skin79 Diamond Collection

Hi Ladies,
after trying 4 sample sizes of the Skin79 BB cream, I've decided to purchase a full size of their Diamond The Prestige BB cream and UV Screen BB pact. They both came with a small sample of the Hot Pink Super Plus BB and VIP Gold Super Plus BB.

I will start off with the BB cream. Diamond The Prestige BB cream has the following properties:

  • For normal type skin
  • SPF protection
  • Whitening features
  • Sebum control
  • Wrinkle improvement
  • Glitter, shimmer (very subtle)

This BB cream comes in an airless, clean and sterile container with a pump dispenser to control amount of cream you want to use. Do note that BB cream is not suppose to replace your foundation. BB cream should be part of your daily skincare routine and not makeup routine. It gives a very light coverage, I would say lighter coverage than a tinted moisturizer. In my case, I would use half a pump to cover my entire face. A little do go a long way. I would pump it on the back of my hand and dot it all over my face, then pad it onto the skin to blend it out.

Here are the swatches of the BB cream... (I'm NC20 skin color)


Completely blended

Onto the UV Screen BB pact.

The powder is nicely protected with a clear plastic. You close the plastic cover and the puff sits on top of it. There's also a big mirror, which makes it very convenient to apply it on-the-go. I would normally use this powder in the morning before I leave the house and with no touch-ups I'm good for the whole day. 

This pact offers:
  • SPF 22 PA++
  • Sebum control
  • Keeps skin moisturized
Here are the swatches of the pact...

Completely blended

I would totally recommend these 2 products to anyone who has skin with excessive oils and needs little coverage. These 2 products together gives a very natural and oil-free finish to the face. 

I haven't use these products long enough to see the whitening effect on my little brown spots under my eyes (due to sun expose), but all the other properties in the product is enough for me to love these products! 

Have you tried any Skin79 products? Which ones and how to do you like them?
