Review: E.L.F. Essential Little Black Beauty Book in Cool

Let's talk about eyeshadow today! I bought ELF Little Black Beauty Book in Cool tones quite sometime ago and now I finally have the time to take pictures of the product and colours.

What attracts me to this product is the number of colours it has and the size. This beauty book measures approx 4" x 5" with a soft cover and has 20 lip colours + 28 eyeshadow shades, which makes it great for travelling. I don't really like the lip colours so I'll just review on the eyeshadow for now :)

Cool tones have a range of green/blue/pink/purple and black eyeshadow, and being someone who love bright colours I chose this over the warm tones, consisting of neutral colours like gold/beige/peaches. As there's no separator between lippies&eyeshadow, I kept the covers of the original packaging which acts as a separator and prevent both from mixing together.

This costs $15 in a local store I bought and it actually retails less than US$5 in US but I don't have anyone who can bring it in for me :/ Anyway, despite the affordable pricing, the quality is surprisingly good. It gives good pigmentation and is easy to blend together. I'm pleased with the fact that it lasts on my oily lids the whole day without fading(with the use of primer too). Plus, it comes with a tiny brush!

With the variety of shades included, I can play around with the colours and try out new looks. Love this alot! :D

Some pictures, with the use of shade 4&5. The colours are buildable, and I didn't use much so it will be suitable as day makeup.

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…
