Tried & Tested Trio : Bronzers

Bourjois Delice de Soleil, The Body Shop Bronzing Powder, Physicians Formula Bronze Booster

I was looking at recent photos of me and realised that my face looked flat as a pancake ūüôĀ ¬†Being Asian means that I have flat features like flat nose and flat boobs – but alas, NOT A FLAT STOMACH!!! ¬†Gurrrr!!!! ¬†Anyway, I decided to crack open a few bronzers to see if I could incorporate them into my make-up routine and learn to contour and define.

How hot was last weekend in Melbourne?! ¬†And we’re still in Spring!! ¬†With Summer round the corner for all of us who live in Australia, the pressure is on to look cute in our Summer dresses and to strut our hot stuff in bikinis. ¬†Not only have I joined the gym to lose the flab but I have also been involved in a sponsored trial* of Elixia BodyShaper Cellulite Contour Cr√®me¬†to help me ‚Äėcreate the perfect silhouette‚Äô (and you can win one too but more on that later!)


Lime Crime Alchemy Palette Swatches


Lime Crime Alchemy

I finally got round to swatching the Lime Crime Alchemy Palette that I bought a few weeks ago as part of the Alchemy Collection. ¬†It’s seriously so pretty that I had to force myself to swatch this. ¬†It went something along the lines of “Ling, you better swatch this NOW! ¬†Otherwise you cannot eat chips for the rest of 2012!” ¬†Nothing and I mean NOTHING comes between me and chips, so enjoy the swatches of the Lime Crime Alchemy Palette whilst I go and munch some chips now!

Konnichiwa! ¬†It means “Hello” in Japanese!

Karl Lagerfeld is one busy man!  Not only is he known for luxe labels, Chanel and Fendi, but amongst his many projects, he also collaborated with high street label H&M a few years ago РI remember browsing through the collection but nothing took my fancy.  Fast forward a few years and BAM!  Karl Lagerfeld has caught my attention once again because he collaborated with possibly my most favourite beauty brand in the world, Shu Uemura.  Pictured above is the Cleansing Beauty Oil Premium A/O Advanced Formula.  Mon Shu Girl is the face of the Karl Lagerfeld for Shu Uemura Collection and personally, I think she is CREEPY CUTE!

1.  I Heart Peplum!

I have a thing for¬†red dresses¬†so I was super duper happy to find a red peplum dress in the Forever New sales section – only $30!! ¬†Don’t be deceived by the photo. ¬†It’s a super slimming magic mirror. ¬†In real life, I look like a sausage but I will starve myself tonight to fit into the dress for tomorrow ūüėõ ¬†“What’s on tomorrow?”, you ask – see the next picture!!!
