Back to Blogging

Happy (belated) New Year ✨ After (yet another) break from blogging I’m feeling refreshed and ready to post again! For the past few years I’ve felt like I’ve been in this repetitive loop in what I’ve been doing which didn’t really inspire me to post anything. But recently I’ve thought about the direction and the sort of things I want to talk about in my blog and also I’ve been getting into new things so I feel pumped again to update. I think it’s nice to have my own little space in the web and talk about things which I don’t really talk about with friends 😂 

So what has happened since I last posted? I went back to short hair as the bleached ends of my hair went all dry and horrible. My hair got really damaged when I went to America so I’m not sure if it’s because of the water or because I didn’t use my usual haircare products or a combination of both 😰 So back to bobs and short hair it is! This time I chose to get my hair dyed a dark ash brown. I’m really pleased with the way it turned out, though my ends are still bleached so currently I have an ombre going on 😄 This snap below was taken on the day of my haircut✂

     

I also finally got new frames. I was supposed to get new frames like 2 years ago but I was lazy and forgot so I only ended up getting my new pair last month. In a way I’m glad though, otherwise I wouldn’t have gotten this design! I love the gradient from silver to white on the front and the hearts on the side 😍 It looks gold though since my iPhone is gold.

Another thing which got upgraded was my phone! I was torn between getting the rose gold or gold iPhone 6s, but I settled for getting the gold colour. If the rose gold was more bronze I think I would have gotten it since I’m not too fond of pink. After plunging into the world of mobile gaming, I went for the 64gb storage. I feels so good to have heaps of storage to download a lot of apps and not to have to keep moving my photos to my desktop 👌

     

Another big thing that happened to me last year was that I traveled to the U.S and Canada! It was an interesting experience, especially to see what life is like there compared to what I’ve seen on tv and to hear all the different accents haha. I only spent 3 days in Canada, but I really liked visiting Montreal city and I hope to go to Vancouver one day.

And most exciting of all, I finally went to Japan earlier this year! 😭 I applied for a cultural program in November last year and got chosen, so I went on an all expenses paid trip to Tokyo and Yamaguchi. Even though I was only there for 8 days, I had an amazing time. I’m not sure if it’s because I’m more used to Asian/Japanese culture but I felt much more comfortable being there compared to my trip in America. I definitely see the appeal of why so many people like to travel to Japan, and hope to go back again next year 🌸

And that’s what I’ve mainly been up to – did a whole bunch of travelling and changed my appearance a bit ✨ I’ll be posting more about the program I got into and what I bought (coz I went a bit crazy..💸)  in upcoming posts 😁 I’ll be more proactive in writing posts and queuing them so hopefully there shouldn’t be such a long gap between posts again.

Tonymoly Liptone Get It Tint – #3 Play Orange Review

Have you heard about lip tints before? It’s a liquid type of lip product which stains your lips for a long lasting and wearable look during the day, so you don’t have to worry about constantly reapplying during the day! It’s most popular use is for the gradient lip look, which gives the effect that you’ve just eaten something staining like a cherry, but you can also use them for a full coverage look.

This type of lip product is a must have in Asian beauty, so I’m really happy to finally try one. A big thank you to Kosmeshop for sending me this to review.

Tonymoly Liptone Get It Tint - #3 Play Orange

Volume: 9.5g

Weight: 59g

Price: US$7.77

Description: Vivid red orange colour that gives vivid colour on lips.
Light weight tint that gives vivid color & natural shine.
GET! Vivid color with moistful finish.

How to use: 
When wanting natural looking lip color, make gradation.
When wanting strong makeup, dab one or two more times.

Design: With similar packaging to nail polish, it has double leakage proof design as there is a square cap and the lip with the applicator wand attached. The size and shape is very easy to fit into your daily cosmetic pouch. I like the simple design of it – it’s easy to see the colour of the product and the quantity inside.

Colour: It’s a blood orange shade which has a nice fruit scent. I think it’s like a nice coral shade which is nice if you’re looking for something a bit different than pink, but don’t want to go for something as bold as red. It dries pretty fast, so make sure to work quickly in applying it. Once dry I found that it lasted for around 5 hours after drinking and eating.

Texture: I would say it’s a creamy  texture and very pigmented in colour. It’s very easy to build the product which is perfect if you’re going for the gradient look. This lip tint dries with a slightly moist finish.

Application: First of apologies for the dramatic change in photo quality, I thought it’ll be easier to take photos with my phone instead of dlsr but I didn’t think the change in quality would be that great ahah;;

These are just some quick shots I took to show what the lip tint looks like on my lips. My lips are pretty pink, so if I want to go for the gradient look, I usually dab some bb cream onto my lips. I know some people use concealer but I find it too drying. At the moment my currently use Innisfree’s Water Glow Cushion for my face, which is used for a dewy look so I think it’s perfect to put on my lips for this look^^

From left to right:

  • lips with no product
  • lips with bb cream
  • how I apply the tint lip and dab it out for a gradient look
  • lip tint with 2 layers completing covering my lips

Final Thoughts: it’s a simple product to use, especially for the gradient look. I really love the colour and how it can last for most of the day so I definitely would considering repurchasing this, especially to try out the other colours! I like the look of the pink shades they have.
