Suqqu Beauty Show – Spring/Summer Collection

20130226-1

Last week when I was surfing the net randomly, I realized Suqqu was doing a beauty show the next day! Since I was in the neighbourhood and the time was perfect, I decided to stop by and check out their Spring/Summer collection.

And luckily, their makeup artist had some times to spare, and he did a quick makeup on me!
I have had experiences at other brand’s beauty counter but it wasn’t so pleasant, because they put way too many products on my face and caused breakouts (read my posts here) but Suqqu didn’t! I have been wanting to try a couple of their products, and I’m glad I did, because they are so pricey and I don’t know when I’ll be able to buy them…

Most of the products I have tried are new in their Spring/Summer collection.

1) Blend colour eyeshadow

~The colours are really pretty, and it’s quite long lasting

2) Creamy Grow Lipstick Moist in EX-08 Sangodama

20130226-3

~It’s a really pretty colour. Suqqu beauty advisor said this lipstick is really moisturising, we don’t need lip balm before using it. It’s kinda like an all-in-one lipstick. I think the lipstick is very moisturising, and it seems to be very popular because I heard it was sold out already.

3) Face Color Palette

~A very beautiful palette, the color is very light so perfect for a natural look.

4) Eyeliner creamy in Navy

~Long lasting, didn’t crease on me at all.

5) Balancing Eyebrow & Eyebrow Liquid Pen

20130226-6 20130226-7

~The colours are very natural, and the liquid pen is good for drawing missing brows

After trying a couple of products from Suqqu, not all the products are worth the price, so if you are interested in this Suqqu, I remember the followings:

1) Suqqu brushes – definitely best of the best, feels like air! It’s on top of my shopping list~

2) Their foundations (See my review here)

3) eyebrow liquid pen, not many makeup brands offer this kind of product, it would be useful if you wanna fill in your missing brows and still look natural.

♥Happy Valentine’s Day♥

♥Happy Valentine's Day♥

Hi all Beauty lovers♥

Happy Valentine’s Day! It’s been another year, last year I made Strawberry Poppers (stuffed with cheesecake), not so successful, so this year back to the safe choice, chocolate dipped strawberries! Simple ones! But I promise they do taste heavenly♥

In Japan, the custom is a little different from the rest of the world. Instead of girlfriends getting flowers/gifts/jewelry, boyfriends get chocolate from their girlfriend, female coworkers at work. In another word, girls have to buy chocolate for their boss, colleagues, and of course their boyfriend!

So Valentine’s Day is not just for Valentines in Japan! You are right, BUT girls do buy better/more expensive chocolate for “THE ONE”, yup their boyfriend! Cheaper ones for just friends and colleagues!

Guys don’t need to do anything then? Actually, instead of Feb 14 Valentine’s Day, guys give gifts in return on Mar 14, the “White Day” they call it~

May all of you have a sweet one with or without Valentine♥

Makeup School finally started!! … a month ago…

If you have read my blog before, you probably know I would be taking a makeup course in Japan at Kanebo Makeup Institute♥

And about 4 weeks ago, it finally started!
It’s the “Standard Course”, the most basic one, that is good for all beginners!
The first class covered some administrative issues, and we learnt the basics like cleansing, skincare and base makeup.
The second class, we kinda covered everything from cleansing to full makeup, we even did a photo shoot with the makeup we did on ourselves! We had a slideshow session, showing our makeups one and one, it’s just so interesting to see the different color choices we had, different styles and all that! I would love to share that picture, however I won’t have it until I graduate from the course…
The most exciting part of the first class was getting all the products from Kanebo♥♥ I got tons of things, everything you name, its in the package! Pretty everything we need!
Last week, we did makeup on a doll (yes! again!) Its my second, so compare with the first one I did, I think I definitely did better on the brows. However, since it was kinda late, so I rushed a little and messed up the lips…and eyeshadow!
To see the one I did before school started, click here
I am still having a l lot of fun, its hard but I am excited to see the better me in the future (hopefully!) I just can’t wait, there’s just so much to learn!
If you girls are ever in Tokyo, please please be my makeup model♡♡
I will have to practice a lot!!!

Japanese Magazines♥Sweet & Koakuma Ageha♥

I love Japanese magazines, I started buying Japanese way before I could speak japanese, because it’s just so inspiring and exciting to look at the pictures.

It’s really not necessary to understand japanese! And there’s more!! Not only the beautiful japanese makeup and fashion, the little gift (付録Furoku) that comes with the magazine is always so tempting! In the past, I used to buy “non-no”, “cutie”, “with”, “more” magazines just because I thought their styles are pretty close to what I like, but recently I started choosing magazines by the gift (furoku), because they are so pretty ♥♥

Anyway, after I decided to go to makeup school I thought it would help if I start studying different kinds of makeup. So last week I bought “Koakuma Ageha”, which is a gyaru fashion and lifestyle magazine. Gyaru…is not really my style, but it would be fun to learn how they do their makeups! Of coz, the little gift that comes with the magazine is a fake lashes case by Cecil McBee♥

Today, I went to 7-11 to buy lunch (coz I was too lazy to cook), and I saw the Oct issue of “Sweet”, of course the cover is gorgeous but gift is what really caught my attention!! A red Coach case with note pad! How could I resist!

 

Ain’t it pretty???? The magazine and this gorgeous coach case it costed only 690yen(~USD8.9)♥♥

I’m loving Japan♥♥
