Topshop Crayon Pencils Review

I love that Topshop has come out with its own range of make up which is rather affordable unlike their range of clothes which are bearing prices not too far from high-end fashion these days ( =__= )

Here's their not-so-latest collection of Topshop crayons:

Crayons are rather like eye-liners, except that they are rather thick and can't draw defined lines like an eyeliner can. However, it is a lot more smoother and thicker to apply than a normal eyeliner and its great for creating that ''smudged eye look''.

I bought two colours to try, i.e the Black Jack & Tarnish (because Imma a big fan of brown eyeshadow/liner)

Tarnish (the dark brown) looks rather black here but in real-life its more of a dark-matte brown colour.

Here are the swatches:

I really love these crayons, they create a really lovely smudgey look and blends really easily on the skin. However, I definitely won't recommend this for girls with oily skin if they don't put on eye primer coz this smudges really easily :( . Aside from that, the colours are VERY awesome, and the black contains just a nice touch of glitter for nightime.

I never draw the directly on my eyes with the crayons, I always use a sharp tip side-ways brush to shape the  outline of the crayon. I find that just directly drawing it on your eyes can give is a very messy look if you're not too careful!

I'm thinking about one-day doing a makeup video just showcasing my makeup in real life (I'm not ready to show the world my bare-face just yet! lolz)

Bacon Mashed Potato Recipe

I know this blog is too random, from makeup, clothes, travelling, to bacon recipes but I swear this is just an off track for a wee while! I''ll get back to blogging about make up again pretty soon ^^

I had a potluck with my Bf's family not too long ago and most of us had made homemade dishes <3

What his sister made which put the rest of us to utter shame :'( Please dont ask me how she made this.

This is mine and the boyfriend's. It's Bacon Mashed Potato for now but I haven't thought of a 'zing' name for it as of yet! heh.


Mashed Potato
Bacon (pork)
Cheese (I just used normal Kraft cheese slices, nothing fancy) 
Cream Cheese 
Salt (wee bit) 

To feed about 10 people I put in roughly around 5-6 potatoes for this dish. As usual have them mashed, and after mashing, throw in lots of cream cheese (I used 2/3 of a block) , some milk (however much you want to taste creamier. Keep adding and tasting it as you go) . I added a tinge of salt as well just for extra flavour. 

Cut your bacon into small bite-sized pieces and fry them lightly beforehand. They don't have to be fully cooked. Then, layer the cheese on top of your mashed potato, throw the bacon on top, and oven it for 10 mins 

This is a super feel-good recipe and great for potluck (coz its easier to make than a lot of other fancy Chinese meals ahem).

Etude House Blusher

Bought this coz its on sale and I've run out of blusher. My face is has a light tan, so I really advice people with similiar skin to go for a light pink blusher as opposed to a darker blusher as it will only make your face look dull (believe me I've tried)

This one is pretty good, its pink colour is not too overwhelming on the cheeks .

Photobucket This colour shade is labeled as : #3: Pink Girl Fit

In fact, its on offer now for only RM26 (its about U$ 4.20?)

  PhotobucketThe super cute pattern on the blusher before I've completely wrecked it from constant usage

  Le self-vain pic of me after applying the blusher (don't worry, the photoshop effect I put on is still the same colour tone blusher in real life)

Anyway, I can't resist but........


Found a picture of my friend's Buddha Cat in my camera! I think a think for obese animals, I just wanna roll them over everytime I see one (but this kitty is FIERCE)

Don't you think the picture is very 9gag worthy?
