LIME CRIME UTOPIA REVIEW


So I really had the privilege of collaborating with Lime Crime Thailand this time...and trust me I was completely stoked when they wanted to send me this baby for review! :P Lime Crime Utopia is the latest shade to be added to their Velvetine Collection, and to be honest I think it may be their best colour they have come up with so far (My very biased opinion..since my fave colour is purple lol)..nevertheless this is a beautiful shade of 'Orchid Purple' that is great for any skin tone.
The packaging like all of the other velvetines, came in this little cute glass tube with pretty rose pattern cap. The applicator wand that comes with the product is so useful too, it really helped give a nice coverage to the whole lip while applying...and as U can see from the pic, the consistency of the formula just like the others is quite liquidy ..non stick and light. It glides effortlessly on and after a few seconds dries off to a nice matte finish!..I usually apply around 2 coats after it dries to really play up on the vibrancy of the colour, and as U can see it really is VERY pigmented!..LOVEEEE ~

The colour for me pretty much stayed on for the whole day, even after all eating and drinking (yes..we do ALOT of that :P )..the colour stays on well and there really wasn't any need for me to touch up. It sticks to U so well that it can be a pain to take off at the end of the day LOL..you really need to scour your lips real good after wearing any of the velvetines on ure lips really! 

I decided to swatch Utopia next to some other velvetines to compare the pigmentation and vibrancy of each colour up close.. Pink Velvet is the middle one and Sued-berry is the last.and as U can see..Utopia has more of a cooler undertone to it..which makes it more wearable than the other two shades..and also at more occasions..

I decided to also throw in the darker side of the Velvetines colour spectrum for comparison..the last 3 shades, Wicked, Salem and BlackVelvet are from "The Clueless Witch" Collection, and the first colour is "Red Velvet" of course another fave staple of mine!


I also had a chance to pop into their shop that just recently opened in Bangkok, the first one I see so far that is a proper retailer of Lime Crime Products! (& yes there were several decibels of harmonious screaming in my head when I discovered that there was a Lime Crime Shop in Thailand!) Needless to say I spent the whole of that afternoon swatching and admiring the packaging and products in person..it was so great to be able to do that before purchasing!...


The Shop is located close to the BTS (Skytrain) Asok Station area, at the Interchange Tower.. G floor..it took me awhile to find it at first since it was quite small..but it was definitely worth it ^^..there were so many stuff to look at (and play with! lol)..I really was quite shocked at how complete their collections were!...Besides the size of the shop..which was more like a little booth than a shop..I thoroughly enjoyed my time there! The shop has become so popular fast that most of the popular shades were gone...and many had to be put down on the waiting list..which kinda sucked but hey it only proves that their products are worth the wait! :P



WATCH OUT FOR FAKES!!

LADIES...please be careful of FRAUDS! There is so many fakes and copies that are made and distributed to look like the real ones when they're not!..so be careful when shopping for Lime Crime!..Make sure U see a Hologram sticker on both the packaging and the product itself before purchasing!!! BE SURE & most importantly BE SAFE! U don't want some crazy ingredients in your velvetines! :P

Be sure to ENTER this GIVEAWAY!! Thanks for tuning in dolls..and I'll see u in the next post!..Good luck!...

Glitter Cut Crease & Purple Lips Feat. LIME CRIME UTOPIA


YES! So I finally I got my hands on this new badass colour UTOPIA from Lime Crime! *Screams* and what a stunning shade of purple it really is! The promo pictures featuring the colour really did not dissappoint! With such a vibrant blend of orchid purple and deep violet, I was first quite skeptical about how wearable it would for daytime look but once it on, well the rest was history because this colour definitely hit it off big time with me!!  Thank you so much Lime Crime Thailand for fueling my obsession with Lime Crime Lip colours even further! 
To celebrate I pretty much jumped right in and started filming this tutorial almost as soon as I got home...and the outcome of the the eye makeup was actually quite impressive! The dark cut crease and glitter on the lids really offsets the vibrant purple on the lips making the whole look really come together :)

 Products I used to achieve this look:

Lorac Pro Palette
UD Midnight Cowboy Glitter Pen
UD 24/7 Glide On Black Pencil
Maybelline Hypergloss Black Liner
Anastasia Brow Powder Duo "Caramel"
Boktoh Lashes 019 (Thai Brand)
Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer
Tarte "Glisten" Blush
Lime Crime Utopia


So let's get this tutorial started shall we? ;)

  1. After priming your eyes, take a GOLD colour from the Lorac Pro Palette (If you don't have the palette just use something similar) and just apply that all over the upper fold of your crease.
  2. Blend out any harsh edges and follow by apply a few dabs of CHAMPAGNE & NUDE all over your main lids.
  3. Apply the colour ESPRESSO onto the outer V to create the an outline of your crease. Deepen the colour until you are happy with the intensity.
  4. Andd of course blend out any harsh lines (a key to creating any makeup look is to BLEND GIRL!!) 
  5. Create a cat eye with any black liner of your choice, for me I personally prefer liquid liners (Maybelline Hypergloss Liner to be exact) since they give off a nice and neat clean cut finish to any look.
  6. Go back to ESPRESSO (or any dark browns) to further deepen your crease, this will really help make the whole look pop!
  7. Apply a pair of falsies of your choice, I am using a pair of BOKTOH 019 (Thai Brand) natural lashes, follow that by applying some BLACK along your lower lash line to intensify your look further.
  8. Next is onto the fun part! Apply some glitter all over your main lids as well as your lower lash line to add some bling ;) Here I am using my favourite URBAN DECAY MIDNIGHT COWBOY glitter pen^^...Use your fingers to spread out the glitter across your lids.
Lastly to finish the whole look off, it's time to put on our pout! Here I am so excited to be using my Lime Crime UTOPIA for the first time, and I feel that the glitter on the eyes and this beautiful orchid purple colour compliments well with each other.


Hope you guys enjoyed this quick pictorial for this look! Be sure to check out my full makeup tutorial on my YouTube channel! Thanks for tuning in and I'll see U all in my next post ^_^ Byeee x

My ZALORA Thailand online shopping EXPERIENCE!!

Hi Ladies...So I have a little POSITIVE online shopping spree experience to share with you all!! This is actually my first time shopping at ZALORA, so I decided to share my experience with what I think of it so far. I am not usually the type to go the online shopping route especially when it comes to clothes since I prefer to go see and 'feel' for the products in person. Also I have tried many online shops and while some of them were great the others left me a little mad with the level of unprofessionalism and lack of customer understanding. However, having said all that this site really gave me back my boost of confidence in online shopping again, not only did they deliver within 3 days of my order, they also offer a variety of payment methods I can choose from..and that's right you don't even need credit cards anymore...because one of the payment methods includes being able to pay at the time of your product delivery....*Screams*..it truly is a very modern way of online shopping and to be honest I can really get used to it! Another big gigantic plus to this experience is that if I didn't like the products, the company allows up to 30 days return policy which is a big relief trust me! *Another big scream*
I have not always  been a 'dress-y' type of girl, usually I would opt for jeans or a pair of cool trousers or just leggings if I'm just at home, however lately I find myself more and more drawn to cute edgy dresses. My first pick from the ZALORA website was this stylish colour block dress with a fitted top and flared out skirt. The colour block layout was actually what really drew me to the piece, as it gives a nice illusion of a trim waistline (which I needed badly lol). I found the dress to be a little longer than expected at first (not their problem 'cuz I am literally a midget) but found the solution of pairing it up with a pair of nice peep toes to help proportion out the whole outfit, and voila problem solved!

This "Fit & Flare Colour block" dress is actually by EZRA which is ZALORA's own up and coming fashion brand that produces the same sort of designs as H&M (Same concept & groups of designers I think)...such great news since I am a BIG H&M fanatic! The simplicity and blend of the colours really helps dressing up or down the piece much easier. For me personally I like to pair it up with simple gold bling pieces, like a pair of these lion's head earrings (Thrifted) and padlock and chain bracelet (H&M).
On my lips I am wearing one of my fave red lipsticks right now, this is 'Lady Danger' from MAC, and matched it up with my nail colour 'Fire' from CHANEL. Tying up bold red colours with navy blue ties the whole look off nicely!
For my second outfit choice from the website, I opted for the ever so popular "Kimono Jacket" also from EZRA by ZALORA (been wanting one for absolute AGES!!! but never managed to find the right one omg)..which was why I could barely contain my excitement when I finally got this one! This piece is by far my favourite out of the two cuz it can be styled in so many ways and really helps to funk up any outfit. 
For this blog I paired it up with another one my latest purchases, a pair of Basic Skinny Jeans (PULL&BEAR) and a Wool Hat (H&M). I took the whole look to the next level of funk with these coke coloured soda glasses I picked up from the train market (A VLOG of this trip is already up on my YT Channel so be sure to check it out!..I'll have it listed at the end of this blog)...it's always exciting to find hidden fashion gems at night markets (or any markets in general), thrifting has definitely become one of my fast growing passions as of now seriously!
 I also love how the layered fabric at the opening of the jacket falls around my body and does not make me look puffed up like a cupcake (I was scared about it doing that when I was deciding whether or not to get it). I guess the doubling of the fabrics which made it heavy enough to fall naturally by itself..I was really impressed by the quality of this piece especially ^_^

Thai Beauty Youtuber MEETUP with Warming1Up!! @ "Mr. Jones' Orphanage" aka Teddy Bear Factory Cafe!

So...FINALLY..I had the chance to meet up with one of my friends who is also a Thai Beauty Guru from YouTube.. after having talked about meeting up for what seems like forever.. We finally made it to meeting up..just in time before she had to leave for the UK once again...Her name is 'Warm' from the channel Warming1Up...so if you have not yet checked out her channel then you really should! she has amazing style and also does great tutorials ^^ (We also have the same YT idol! Jenn Im from 'Clothesencounter'! muahahhaa!) 
Anyhow...we managed to meet up for a short while at this cute little themed cafe in the midst of the busy & buzzling Siam Centre Shopping Mall, which is right next to Siam Paragon...You can reach here via BTS (Skytrain...Siam Station)...The name of this gorgeous little cafe is called "Mr. Johns' Orphanage"...yeh.. a little eccentric for a name nevertheless it is still very cute and different to any other cafes I visited before.

The whole ambience of the place was themed as a teddy bear factory with overhanging rail tracks running through the entire cafe, and teddy bears dangling from all corners of the place!..Not only that but their menu was full of yummy varieties!! From macaroons to apple pies and strawberry sponge cakes...U name it...they got it! The list of both hot and cold beverages on offer also exceeded my expectations! At first I was going to grab an afternoon coffee, but the "Hot White Chocolate" caught my eye..and yeh..I cannot not try it lol...(and it did not disappoint!)...
No clue why I have never tried out this place before..but I'm so glad I finally did today!..one thing though just mind your head when U make ure way into the cafe because the train railings are built so low...even I (a midget at 5'1) nearly bumped my head!! >_< lol..so yeh be careful...!! Everything is so teeny tiny...dainty and cute...it really does feel like U are really having a little teddy bear tea party..just like how I used to when I was younger lol...Nevertheless it was a lovely experience for me & I definitely see myself coming back here for more yummy cakes and Hot White Chocolates!
