Where Have You Been All My Life? Review: Shu Uemura Tokyo Lash Eye Opening Volume Mascara

I am not a fussy person. All I want in life is a boatload of cash in my savings account, a tummy full with pasta (and not becoming fatter after said pasta) and of course, a mascara that makes my small peepers look huge. All these things are actually quite achievable if you work hard enough, especially the third one.

Actually, I didn’t have to look at all. Once again, Jiu Mu Daforcena generously put this baby into my hands because she didn’t fancy it at all. Me being me, I snapped it up and called it my own unabashedly. What am I talking about? Why the Shu Uemura Tokyo Lash mascara, of course!

Shu Uemura Tokyo Lash Eye Opening Volume Mascara

It comes in an eye-catching red cap with a sleek black tube with silver lettering. Simple yet satisfying. I was never, ever one for fancy packaging at all, so this suits me perfectly.

Shu Uemura Tokyo Lash Eye Opening Volume Mascara Brush

The brush can be described as being pyramid-shaped to my eyes. This means that the bristles are longer at the base and shorter at the tip, which makes sense because the eyelashes at the inner corner of the eye are shorter than the ones on the outer corner… right?

If you look closely enough, you can see that the bristles intersect one another. If that is not product artistry, I don’t know what is.

Shu Uemura Tokyo Lash Eye Opening Volume Mascara One Coat Right

Here, you can see the immediate effect of just one coat on my lashes on one eye versus naked lashes on the other. That is VA VA VOOM indeed!

This is what three coats on the upper lashes and one coat on the lower lashes bring. I look as if I have falsies on! That is very impressive indeed! The best thing would be that my lashes did not clump at all. On the contrary, it defines and lengthens pretty well. I must say, I’m really impressed.

The kicker, however, was not in how it look after it was freshly applied, it was how well it lasted.

Shu Uemura Tokyo Lash Eye Opening Volume Mascara Three Coats Both Eyes One Coat Lower Lashes After 14 Hours

This was how it looked after 11 hours. By then, I had studied my butt off, and kicked selfsame butt at the gym for 1 hour. There was not a trace left on the lower lashline, and the curl had already fallen a tiny bit, but DANG, those lashes do look presentable, still!

The best part? The area surrounding my eyes was still totally clean! It washes off with warm water in little fiber balls, too.

My dear lovelies, do take my word for it. You need this! Do be warned, it is not waterproof! However, when you do get water on it, it can be cleaned off quite easily with some damp tissue paper or a wet-wipe.

Retails at Shu Uemura counters and stores in Malaysia for RM 95.

Pros: Long-wearing, smudge-proof, non-clumpy.

Cons: None whatsoever.

Guess Who’s Back? FOTD: Sensible Smokey Eyes

Ugh. Exams. They suck the life out of me. BUT, hopefully, this round will be the last round of exams for me… in my life! MUAHAHAHAHA~ Yes, dear lovelies, I am done with my undergrad years!

So, to celebrate the ending of my years in receiving education (not that I did not enjoy it, don’t get me wrong), I decided to create a little… sensible look for you, for the festive season where there are family dinners galore!

It’s All About The Function, Not The Name! Review: Replica Sigma F80 Flat Top Kabuki

Remember when I had the infamous Sigma F80 Flat Top Kabuki? I used the word “had” because after 1.5 years of using it, all the hairs fell from the ferrule, which was quite a shocking moment for me. I thought that it was because I got the ferrule too wet because I kept trying to get to center when cleaning the brush, so I didn’t get it replaced because I couldn’t handle the heartbreak of destroying another one.

As luck would have made it, I found a similar one in Bangkok last month!

Eyeshadow Simplified: Here’s How To Get Complex-looking Eye Makeup With Only 3 Colors!

Hello lovelies! I think that being makeup aficionados, all of us have days when we lack inspiration. We go to Youtube and dozens of galleries filled with makeup looks like Beautylish and Makeupgeek’s idea gallery, to find most of those looks too complex and difficult.

Never fear, because I have found the lazy girl’s way of looking fabulous without using the entire rainbow, unless you really want to. It is the result of months and months of experimentation and now I bring to you a rather simple way to apply eyeshadow if you want to have all the elements of a killer eyeshadow look with less hassle!
