Camwhoring in Sabah

So... I was bored- I liked the way my hair was when I woke up and my brother was asleep...
so I was BORED XD

I decided to camwhore a bit and let you guys see my face without makeup on camera... Since I haven't done that before ^^ (not on photos anyway, maybe on videos XP)




I think you can see how my hair was cut a lot clearer in these photos... and sorry for the sucky lighting- it was taken in the bathroom at a eco-resort where they conserve energy afterall ><

Much love,
Enjoy your hoidays~

Miao~ DP Change

Nyaaa~ doesn't my new dp remind you of a kitty? A cat was the first thing that came into my mind when I screenshot-ted it XD

Do you like it? I thought that my last one was a little to unfitting for the weather... so uh... I changed it to my newest tutorial look ^^

Which of course you can find on my channel XD


Tell me whether you like the new profile image okay? ^^

NOTD: Ballerina Themed

So, lately- I've been changing my nail color every two days or so... I'm trying to use up some bottles before I leave for boarding school since I know that not all people are big fans of the smell >.<"

Anyway- today's manicure!
*drumroll*

Ballerina themed, pink and nude-peach colored nails with lace, ribbons and bows ^^
Hontou ni chou kawaii ne? I even used some clear/sheer pinkish glitter polish over the bows before I sealed the whole design with around 2-3 coats of top coat XP




Polishes used are:
[Both] Kiss Salon Formula Diamond Hard Strengthening Basecoat
[LH] OPI Heartthrob
[RH] French Bonbon Manicure No.6 Macaroon
[Both] OPI Alpine Snow
[Both] China Glaze Bad Kitty
[Both] BANDI Vitamin Booster (as topcoat)

Much love,
Syuri <3 xxoo

NOTD: Last Friday Night

So- just repainted my nails today with Last Friday Night by OPI from the Katy Perry edition, while this look gorgeous in the bottle it is very very very sheer.

I know a lot of people don't like sheer nail polishes (especially when OPI cost so much ><), but I actully quite like it, reminds me of Canmake nail polishes with the sheer color and mass amount of glitters- netherless I got the color opaque on my nails through building.

Guess how many layers it took? XD

Much love,
Syuri

PS. the little red mark on my thumb is from my little chihuahua- he's very cheeky XP

Review: Edge Ponytail Hair Wig Bun Extension

Today I'll be reviewing a very pretty hair extension for you all that all into hair styling or cosplay ^^

Wig Style: Up-style, volume-type fashion wig
Material: Synthetic Hair
Size: 5 inch hair all round (12.7cm)

Copied directly from site (so, it's not my english thats slightly off XD):
A Small size bun that fits loosely. Made with high temperature fiber and the curl is rather less than the one with regular fiber. Great news for ladies who get stressed and have troubles with doing hair. A bun shaped wig that can be easily used to create styles. It is designed to be very easy to wear because there are hairs circled around the hair band. Can be added to your own hair, and it will gives more volume to your look. Less entangled and last longer than regular fiber. Using heat for a short time and can make it strait bun. Choose one that is the closest color to your natural hair color. Comb before and after using the bun and it will protect the bun entangled.

The synthetic hairs are super natural and super super 'real' feeling, exactly like natural hair ^^ I'm very impressed ah! It's very easy to care for doesn't tangle at all even through the humid air of Hong Kong. It gives a very sophisticated and mature feel when you leave it kind of neat and it gives a young, fresh and fun voluminous look when you fluff it out. Only downside is that there's only 4 colors T^T Something else that's really good about it is that you can style it as if it's your own hair! You can use mousse, gel, clay and even use heat on it! Straightening, curling (even though it's kind of hard) and blow drying are all OKAY! You can even tease the hairs as they are individually connected to the elastic and not a big band of hair just wrapped around and glued down -.-"

You can purchase this product here (WITH FREE SHIPPING ^^):

For the other style (same cost and colors):

The product was sent to me from ColorfulCircle.com for reviewing purposes. I was not paid to say anything, they are 100% my own opinions.

Review: Etude House Aloha V-Line Slim Maker

The Aloha V-Line Slim Maker from Etude House is supposed to help you achieve a natural looking V-Line Face Shape which is highly sought after in Korea, (following is translated from Korean) "To make your chin line a true V line shape, don't forget that there is the V line slim maker to let you express your skin with a slim look!"

The website states that there is Natural Sugar Fitting Powder as one of it's key ingredients in the powder (which helps to stop the cakey powdery feel on your face).

The color I chose was 01. Sun Gold-Wood Brown because it was a little lighter and more yellow/warm toned and I thought that it would fit my skin tone more (and I was right! If I had chosen 02. Sun Pink-Cherry Wood, I would look too unnaturally tanned, staying indoors too much has turned me back to my fair NC20 skintone- but for those with a little darker skin tone 02 would look like a natural tan ^^).

For 01, the highlighting shade is a golden champagne with beige undertones, which a shimmery pearl finish. The contour shade is a matte oak wood shade that reminds me a lot of Hershey's milk chocolate powder... only lighter XP

The product wears superbly on my skin, lasting eight hours and more–it tends to be easy to blend (with a blush or contour brush) and looks natural applied as long as you use a light hand with the highlighter as while the bronzer is pigmented- the highlighter is crazy with with pigmentation, I have to tap off a lot when I use even a quick swipe ><

The powder is super finely milled as it is designed for 3D TV- which is the korean equivalent of hat would be our HD TV. 

Although not quite as blendable as a MAC MSF would be as an all over glow powder on the face- it definitely gives a similar glowing effect when the two shades (contour+highlight) are blended together on the compact.

The smell of it is- amazing. Smells a bit like Johnson and Johnson's baby products- kinda sweet (sugary type) and relaxing (the type you'd associate with aromatic woods) at the same time ^^

Packaging is well- too cute to say the least. Definitely SHOUTS Summer! The box is cute enough, and the circular compact itself is a metallic-y pink (the type on NDSs!) with baby pink floral prints and music notes (that remind me so much of Lilo and Stitch ^^), the word "Aloha" is printed in the middle in a burgundy shade and "Etude House" is printed underneath in the same color.

Overrall, I really like this as a summer product and I think that it can definitely warm up my skin-tone during the colder seasons as well. Only down side? Well... I still have my chubby face XD

Weasely Twins

James and Oliver Phelps were in Hong Kong and I was one of the lucky people (completely obsessive fans) that got to see them up close (closer than most anyway XD) at Imax...

Yes- Harry Potter was 10 years of my life I happily wasted T^T I read and finished all the books before I watched the movies and I still cried T^T

PS. Someone please tell me I wasn't the only one who thought 'gay' when Harry and Voldemort hugged each other while he shouted 'together'... Cause the only thing missing from HP to make it the best thing that ever happened is a gay non-angsty pairing we can all ship happily XD

Much love,
Syuri
