Review - Maybelline the Magnum Volum' Express Ultracomb Waterproof Mascara

What a long name! I got this mascara from Maybelline's Blogger/Fan Event and I'm going to do a review after using it for a week! :pDescription
"Exquisitely curved to fit Asian eyelids, this neat little package delivers defined and sleek lashes with just one wiggle, effectively grabbing every lash from root to tip as it deposits a perfect amount of product with just one coat, voluming each lash by seven times with its unique collagen-filled fluid."
[Credits to TODAYonline]Maybelline launched a couple of other Magnum mascaras before but this is my first mascara from that series. This is different from the others as the applicator comes in a curved like comb whereas most mascaras uses brush bristles. It is easier to apply the mascara from the root to tip!

Additionally, it's said to be collagen-rich, water-resistible, tear-resistible, sebum-resistible and I have to say it's true! The mascara lasted me the whole day without smudging. I have oily eyelids so usually mascara would smudge in the middle of the day! There wasn't much clumping too, lashes are coated and separated for the natural effect. I only used a single coat, you can apply more for volume&length!

Another thing that troubles me when choosing a mascara is whether it'll be easier to remove; I've used mascaras which took me so long to remove and sometimes I even lose a few of my precious eyelashes in the process! This mascara, however, doesn't have that problem! It can be easily removed by Loreal Gentle Lip & Eye Remover(review coming up soon) - one of my fav makeup remover! :)

Ending off with some pictures!

Review: Owndays PC (Blue Shield) Lenses

A few months ago, I posted a guide & review on Owndays Singapore and mentioned that I would like to get PC lenses with them as well as do a pair of eye glasses in Korea/Japan and I did both! Now I have 3 pairs of spectacles which is alittle too much. Oh well, at least I don't have to worry about not being able to see if I were to lose one pair of spectacles!  Today I'll be reviewing on their PC aka blue shield lenses. They seemed to be emphasizing more on this type of lens lately and I didn't find a review on this so I decided to be the first to start. Owndays PC lenses come with a slight tinted brown colour and blue coating. The purpose of these lenses is to cut down a certain amount of blue light that is being emitted from electronic devices such as computer, mobile phones, TV, etc.  (Picture credited to Owndays Singapore)
You might be wondering, what is blue light and why do we emphasis so much on it now? Blue light is a type of light that is blue in colour(like duh.…

Review & Guide: Owndays Singapore

If you've been to Korea or Japan, you might have heard of getting a pair of spectacles done within the same day or even within minutes! Based on reviews I found online and through friends, it can cost less than $100 for a pair and I have been tempted to get mine done there ever since.

Earlier last year, Owndays decided to expand and opened its first shop in Singapore. To many, it was a relatively new concept to get spectacles within the same day but to me, it's like finally, I have a chance to experience it without having to travel!

A basic introduction to those who are not familiar with the store. Owndays is a brand from Japan that offers all-in-one price (frame + 1.6 high index aspheric lenses) at $98-$198. With 1,500 styles to choose from and processing time of 20 minutes, you can not only find a pair of spectacles to correct your vision but also change them according to different occasions.

I love their open concept. Unlike most optical…

Guide to KORAIL's O Train & V Train

Sightseeing trains are gaining popularity in Korea and it is one of the things you have to try when you're there! Today I'll be sharing on O Train & V Train which started its operations sightly more than a year ago on April 2013. These trains journey through Korea's inland valleys with the O-train looping around the central inland region, running through the provinces of Chungcheongbuk-do, Gangwon-do, and Gyeongsangbuk-do. While the V-train, connecting Buncheon in Gyeongsangbuk-do Province and Cheolam in Gangwon-do Province, runs through scenic valleys. Detailed information on these trains can be found on VisitKorea.

I realized there is a lack of information on the site as to how you can purchase the tickets online or offline and how to best plan the route if you would like to take both trains plus return to Seoul on the same day. So here's a simple post on how I purchased my tickets on the spot and the mistake I made(and you can avoid if you read this post), but …
