Maybelline collaborated with 8 local blogshops to bring together this flea event. It is made possible with all the awesome people attending this too! :) Anyway, I love attending events where you experience & try the latest product offering by that particular makeup brand, plus shopping to your heart's content with the various shops they've collaborated with. As the saying goes, killing two birds with one stone.

I attended the flea with my sister and sadly my camera had some problems on that day so I didn't take any pictures!:( You can see the pictures from the flea from Maybelline Singapore Facebook!

As promised, introducing the new product: Maybelline Color Tattoo 24HR
An eye shadow in the form of cream gel that glides on your eyelids easily, giving the colour intensity and strong staying power; almost like a tattoo. With such intense colours, it boosts 24 hours of long-lasting staying power that resists water and creasing, don't have to worry about smudging or touching up every once in awhile.

Wondering how Maybelline manage to produce such intense coloured eye shadows?
It's by using a unique ‘hot-pour’ system, a combination of volatile fluids, waxes, a lightweight gellant and a duo of pearls and colourants is mixed, heated and poured at high temperature. During the cooling process, the volatiles evaporate. What’s left is everything you never imagined in an eye shadow: a smooth-as-silk cream gel impregnated with color as intense as ink.

It comes in 8 delicious shades for women who love trying new products, wanting the best of everything and live their life to the fullest; you can choose between the 4 intense shades for night/partying or extra boost to your day makeup, or choose between 4 neutral shades suitable for both day & night!

There's more than one way of using them, as an eye shadow or using a fine tip brush to apply them like an eyeliner ;)

After trying it at the booth, I love lightweight feel of this product and how effortlessly it can be applied onto my skin. I didn't manage to get any as I'm broke for all the spending lately! But what I can say is, the colour intensity is so much better than the eye shadows I've tried, would love to get them next year :)

Last but not least, the good news is, Maybelline will be retailing them at $12.90 each for the month of January! The original price is $15.90, so do try them out in stores and get them next month before the offer ends! :D

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 …
