Choc-Mint Parfait Eyes Tutorial

Another tutorial for sweets themed eye makeup.
This time, as the title says, it is Choc-Mint!

As a child, my favorite flavor of ice cream was always choc-mint. Japanese choc-mint ice creams are bluer than the ones I have in Australia for some reason. It was almost baby blue!
And the pairing of the minty blue and yummy chocolate was so delightful to the eyes, as well as the actual taste, and I just loved having choc-mint ice cream.

After 10 years, my father introduced me to this ice cream flavor of grownups.
Be prepared to meet your nemesis, choc-mint, it is rum raisins!

Anyway, that is how the ice cream war ended...Well, not really but this has nothing to do with the makeup so I'll tell you some other time.


The products I used are:

1. Coastal Scents 88 Ultra Shimmer palette (color #26, #33, #76)
For color numbering, please see this post.(A new window will open.)
2 .NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in French Fries
3. Majolica Majorca Cream Pencil Liner in Brown
4. Revlon Lip Butter in Creamsicle
5. NYX Rouge Cream Blush in Orange
6. Revlon Photoready 3D Volume Mascara in Blackest Black

From Right: NYX Jumbo Pencil, Coastal Scents #33, #26, #76

I hope you enjoyed!

Have a good day!

This is the time of the month, yup, the Favorite time!

I combined beauty favorites, hates and empties because no one likes all separate videos.
Although I am thinking now that maybe I should have done empties separately because it just made the video ridiculously long. But oh well. It is not that bad.

I would say the absolute favorite is the concealer!
I was holding on to okay-ish concealers from drugstores because I didn't want to spend $$$ for concealers and I thought the ones I have are okay. I always convinced myself like "Someday, when I find a good drugstore concealers, I will toss these babies away. But until then, they have to do their jobs."
And the time has come. So I threw away a lot of concealers.

Sometimes, when you cannot fine "the one", just like guys you date, you settle for compromise, which you should not really do.

The same things happened here. Even though I didn't like my old concealers, I just didn't know better or I just thought that they exist beyond my reach, so I hang onto them. Because they are not that horrible, but not the best.

Now I have no regrets tossing my old concealers that I rarely used.
I have this awesome concealer, I don't need you any more. :P

Have a good karma!

Choc Strawberry Eyes

Happy New Year to you! I truly hope wish you the wonderful year of 2013!

So I had been away from YouTube, this blog or pretty much internet for a while because

1. I was away on holiday.
2. I had big exams for my career.

I spent some time sitting at home all day and do nothing but eat, go to bathroom, study and sleep. It was kinda fun, even though I felt like it was a torture while I was doing it. It reminded me of when I was in my junior high school and studying like crazy.

Anyway, fingers crossed for my exams, I hope I don't jinx it, and let's talk about makeup!

The first tutorial of the year would be one of the sequel sweets themed tutorials.
It is Choc Strawberry (as the title says) this time!


Happy Valentine's Day! <3
