Etude House Pink Nail Polish ♥

I knew that I had to have this nail polish the moment I laid my eyes on it. Why? Well because it is such a gorgeous shimmery baby pink! And it was reasonably priced at RM5.90. My experience with Etude House nail polishes has assured me that it is of top quality. As you can see, I've already used some of it :)

This nail polish is the perfect glittery pink. It is kind of sheer and I had to apply three coats to get the opacity I wanted. But the result was bee-yoo-ti-ful! I absolutely love it.

What I like about this nail polish is that the glitter isn't chunky. The finished look is sleek and the texture is not bumpy. It also lasted for six whole days before it started to chip. Fab, ain't it? 

The only flaw - like all glittery nail polishes, it was a tad difficult to remove. Other than that, I can say that it is my current favorite nail polish!

Celebrity Inspiration - Vanessa Hudgens

Okay, I admit that I'm not a big fan of Vanessa Hudgens. But what I do like about her is her superb fashion sense. This gal is known for her Bohemian style which I adore.

Her outfits are all casual but undeniably chic. I freaking love her grey fringe bag! It completes the Bohemian look. Needless to say, a fringe bag is on my to-buy list :)

Vanessa shines on red carpet events as well. Here are some of her fabulous dresses which caught my eye:

White tiered chiffon Jenny Packham dress with Diego Dolcini gold peep-toe pumps
Alberta Ferretti dress
Marc Bouwer mini dress
In a cute turquoise dress
Christian Dior mini dress
I totally fawned over her Jenny Packham and Alberta Ferretti outfits. Her Jenny Packham chiffon frock is delicate and sweet. Love her subtle makeup too! Her body-hugging Alberta Ferretti dress, on the other hand, is utterly glamorous. Perfect for a red carpet event.

I also like how Vanessa plays around with colors. Unlike some celebrities, she does not stick to the same boring colors when it comes to her dresses. This bold chick is willing to experiment with different shades of colors. Take her bright turquoise dress for example. 

All in all, Vanessa is the epitome of fabulousity when is comes to fashion!

Macaron Delight

The very thought of macarons makes my stomach growl in protest... For those of you who don't know what macarons are: A macaron is a sweet French confectionery. It is typically filled with buttercream or jam which is sandwiched between two cookies.

Macarons come in a wide variety of flavours: Vanilla, raspberry, chocolate, truffle, green tea... the list goes on. My favourite so far are the vanilla flavoured ones ^_^

I simply can't get enough of them ♥♥♥

Makeup Removers

I'm quite particular when it comes to makeup removers. I dislike vigorously scrubbing or rubbing my face when it comes to removing my makeup. Thus, I tend to buy removers which eliminates waterproof makeup. So far, two makeup removers stood out. They are my Maybeline Make Up Remover (Eye & Lip) and The Body Shop Camomile Gentle Eye Make-up Remover. 

Maybeline Make Up Remover (Eye & Lip)
As you can see in the picture, the Maybeline makeup remover consists of two layers. So you have to shake it well before using it. Here's what the description says:

This formula instantly removes all eye and lip make up, even waterproof and non-transfer. Formulated for sensitive eyes, it is especially very gentle for the delicate skin around eyes.

Yes, it does a remarkable job of removing waterproof makeup. I don't have to scrub very hard to get my makeup off. So that's a bonus point. However, whenever I use this makeup remover, my eyes get a very slight tingly feeling. Does that make my eyes super sensitive? 

Other than this flaw, this Maybeline makeup remover is pretty much perfect. It is affordable as well. I only wished that they sold it in bigger bottles.

The Body Shop Camomile Gentle Eye Make-up Remover
Moving on to The Body Shop Makeup Remover! I don't buy The Body Shop products as they are rather expensive. Whatever products that I have from this shop are usually gifts from others. This makeup remover is actually a sample that I got after buying the Body Butter as a birthday present for my friend. It's description:

All-in one lash and lid cleansing, conditioning and softening. ALL SKIN TYPES.

I must admit that I love this product! It is so gentle on the eyes. My eyes don't tingle at all! It effectively removes waterproof eye makeup AND it has a fragrant Camomile scent. Heavenly

So the winner here is definitely The Body Shop Camomile Gentle Eye Makeup Remover!
