BEAUTY | Rimmel Soft Kohl Eye Liner

Rimmel Soft Kohl Eye liner Pencils
Colorful eyeliner pencils have been my newest love. Until recently, I only used a simple black eye liner pencil and that too rarely (I'm a Gel Liner fan!). It was only a few months back that I saw these amazing pencils and their super amazing price that I decided I might as well hoard them even if I may not use/like them later. But that didn't happen, as I love them more each day!

BLOGGER TIPS | Add Pinterest Button on Blog's Images

Another thing I always wanted since I started blogging was being able to maximize the potential for my blog. And what better way to showcase your writing and your talent by way of pictures? A picture speaks a thousand words, isn't that the saying? We all click fab pictures for any of our posts, and people do see them when they come across it. But is that enough to get attention and views?
To be able to show them off, social media comes in very handy. I personally just LOVE Pinterest. I find everything I ever wanted to try - especially DIY Crafts & Recipes. Those pictures are so fantastic, I almost always end up visiting the site to check out the full post. Thus, the same formula had to be applied for my blog. I wanted my pictures out there to garner more views.

Colorbar Instant Cover Up Stick - Caramel Treat

To be honest, Colorbar's Instant Cover Up Stick is my very first pencil/jumbo pencil concealer. I have always used liquid ones before. Thus, I wasn't sure what to expect from this one. This one was actually screaming at me from the counter that I should go ahead and buy it, LOL. And so I did. It has surprised me and in a good way!

Sephora Precious Gold Luminizer

Sephora Collection: Precious Gold Luminizer

I never thought there would come a day when I'll be writing a positive review for a glitter/shimmer highlighter! Glitter isn't something I can incorporate in my daily makeup life. It's very rare that I would do some makeup look with a full-on blast of glitter or shimmer everywhere.

Blogger Tips: How to change the Blog's Favicon

As I sit here, trying to come up with another "beauty" post that I feel I should share with you, I wonder why not try something else. Blogging has been one of the best things I have done in all these months, but there have been days when I have had to literally wonder "How the heck would I do that?". So, I decided I might as well do a post now and then whenever I come across something about Blogger and some simple tips that we all can do to make our blog look/feel unique!
For this post, I want to share how we can design and change our own personal favicon. Favicon basically means Favorite Icon and it is that little square icon that you see beside the name of the website/blog on the browser's tab. As default, all Blogger blogs have the Blogger icon; a bright orange background with a white 'B' in it.

MAC Lipstick - Shanghai Spice

It is always a colorful memory when it is the first time; any first times - cooking, dancing, playing your first match, your baby talking or walking for the first time and so on. And then there are also little things that us folks would consider *big*. 
The reason why I am starting a lipstick post with "first times", memories and blah blah is because recently I finally bought my first MAC lipstick. Yeah, no big deal, right? Some of you reading this post might be having loads of them already. But for me, it is. And before I start off with its review, there's a little story about it. Want to know? Read along. Want to skip? Skip whatever I have italicized after this paragraph!

Maybelline Colorama Nail Polish - Absinto

When its green, I am in love. I am a die-hard Greenie. From rich & deep to the palest green, no matter what it is, I love it. When I came across Maybelline's Colorama Nail Color in Absinto, I immediately wanted it. And I had good reason. I didn't have a pastel green nail color. Isn't that reason enough? Yes it is!
