Kate BB gel cream

Kate BB gel cream has been my absolute favourite for the past 6 months, I love it so much I'm already on my second bottle!

This stuff's fantastic for daytime wear if you're looking for something that's not cakey and suitable for humid weather. It comes in three different skin shades, which is rare for BB cream as they mostly come in ''one-tone-for-all''.

I've bought OC-D which actually isn't so brown as they make it out to be in the colour swatch they provided.

Some basic facts : 

kissSPF 30
     kissMade in Japan
kiss Not water-proof

Unfortunately my camera does not capture the true colour of OC-D which is actually slightly more darker than this.

The texture is creamy and spreads pretty easily across the face. The amount I've squeezed onto the back of my hand plus a wee bit more is just about enough to cover the whole face area.

Time for before and after pictures!!

Left : Before , Right: After

Pores are visibly smaller and blemishes have completely disappeared! If you wanted a perfect finish with completely covered pores, I suggest using a make-up base or pore balm (I heard Benefit's POREfessional is one of the best). I didn't bother using one as my pores are not visible in photos unless I take really close up ones like these.

I think from these photos alone you can tell why I love this stuff so much. Price point wise, its pretty reasonable at RM55 (but in Hong Kong, I bought an extra bottle for RM30 only).

Brush on some loose powder to set the BB cream and you're all done!

One fuckin huge ass star for this product just because its bloody awesome.

Diva: Style & Win

This post is for the Diva: Style & Win Competition!! 

If people ask me what kind of style I have, I'd always say its a bit quirky and hipster-ish sometimes. I've never really cared much for brands because I believe that fashion is all about styling yourself with stuff you love, and this can come from ANY designer! Be it famous limited edition design or mass produced clothes its all about whether you're comfortable in what you're in :) 

Hence, this is my entry! 

Lilac cardigan: Forever21
Necklace: My mom's
Bracelet : Thimble (I wear this almost everyday now) 
White shorts: G2000

I've done my hair up in a fishtail braids as well. Its my 10th attempt probably!! It was hard for me to pick it up at first but once you get the hang of it its actually pretty simple :) 

I like my ass in this photo , which is rare coz I'm one of those girls who wasn't bestowed with a nice ass :( 

Wedges: Charles & Keith 
Handbag: My mom's. 

I'm back home for CNY hence why I had to borrow a lot of my mom's stuff for this post.

This whole look is super inexpensive. I got everything on sale except for the cardigan, I make my chinese ancestors proud!!! 

Just wanted to show my new hair-dye by my friend's hairstylist. She did a two-tone colour for me of ash brown, making it lighter on top and a darker colour on the inside. If you notice, there's a slight greenish tinge at the ends of my hair. 

So what's your style like? :D
