Review: Daiso Eyebrow Powder in Brown

It has been a while since I last posted reviews on products I bought from Daiso! The more I step into that store, the more money I spend. Everything is priced at $2 and it seems useful in some way so I can't control myself from grabbing them and putting them in my shopping bag. I had to avoid entering the store in order not to overspend on stuffs that I might not actually need!

Today's review is one of the stuffs that I don't actually need. I still have enough product to last me for awhile as I don't apply much makeup most of the time. Anyway, back to the item, I have been curious about the lasting power of eyebrow powders and I think this is a new product from Daiso since I haven't seen it before so I decided to get one to try. I didn't know that this comes in shades and I was rushing on that day so I just grabbed the first one I saw; glad the shade looks fine on my brows.

I did some trimming of my brows with the use of the eyebrow template and shaver (both from Daiso) which I bought quite sometime ago. It wasn't perfect so don't pay too much attention to the shape of my brows later on!

The set comes in a compact plastic casing with 2 shades and a tiny brush to apply and blend. It is easy to apply even with the brushes provided and the colour is buildable. Surprisingly, it took me much lesser time to draw my brows as compared to the eyebrow pencil that I'm using currently. The staying power is acceptable too though I only tried it for 6 hours. I have oily skin and the weather that day was rather cooling so it didn't cause my makeup to run and managed to look the same when I got home with no obvious fading.

Pardon my huge face, the only products I had on my face that day was Etude House CC Cream(which I will review soon) and Daiso Eyebrow Powder. The picture on the left is how I look when I left my house in the morning so the lighting was better for pictures. I love how the colour blended well with my brows, making it look natural even though I didn't use a spoolie/brush to soften them. Then for the picture on the right is after I used makeup wipes to remove my makeup as I forgot to take a comparison picture before I left house and it was getting dark so the quality of picture was rather bad when no flashlight was used.

I would be getting the eyebrow coat next! I've seen good reviews for that to keep the drawn brows from fading even underwater! I wonder if it's true :p

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 …
