Introducing Tarte’s LipSurgence, in the shade named Escape.

Colour: A rose-pink shimmer, subtle and sheer tint. This can be layered to build colour.
Texture: Glides on smoothly, has hydrating oils to nourish lips. It feels like you’re wearing coloured lip balm. But it can feel a little oily if you apply more than one layer.
Scent: A peppermint scent.
Packaging: A twist stick lip tint. You twist the bottom part.
Wear time: The colour wouldn’t last for a long time, especially if you drink from your mug. But the hydrating oils still remained on my lips after I drank some water.
Where: Purchase it at Sephora
Repurchase?: I don’t recall the price, but this is quite a pricey lip tint to me. This wouldn’t be a priority repurchase for me.

Note: All items are paid for by myself. No items in my blog are sponsored, unless stated otherwise.

Merry Christmas!
Love, Neri.

My letter to 2014

It’s almost time to bring 2014 to a close, and time for me to be mopey and have some introspection. I must say, 2014 had lots of surprises in store for me. Of course there have been some bumps along the way, but overall, 2014 was a great year for me. This is in stark contrast to 2013, where I had a very dark phase in my life. I lost everything. My health (physical, mental and emotional), my confidence, my pride, my happiness, my sanity. It was a very, very steep learning curve, and I learnt a lot from it. This time, 2014 has been a much happier year for me. And for that, I am thankful.

What I’ve learnt:

– Good times don’t last forever. Bad times don’t last forever too.

– Appreciate family and friends who still stuck with you through your darkest hour.

– When God closes many doors, He eventually leads you to a door that is more suitable for you, even though you may not see it as such, at that point in time. 

– Like the story of Job, when God takes everything away from you, He will return everything to you, double, threefold, what He took away from you. He will give you a lot more in return. Only if you have some faith, trust, pray for grace and mercy, and have others pray for you too. Believe in the power of prayer.

– I’ve to remember, that I am not alone in my walk/journey.

– You’re stronger than you think.

– When you’ve hit rock bottom, the only way to go, is slowly back up. Slowly, but surely. With time.

– Trust and obey.

– Sometimes, you stand taller when you’re on your knees. And when you fall, you fly.

– Everything, in good time.

This time, I’m ending the year on a high note. And I hope my happiness will follow me, well into 2015. 2015, I’m ready for you.

Lip Treat: Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick – Creme, in 415 Pink in the Afternoon

I finally got down to using my Revlon lipstick, it’s code name and number is Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick, Creme, in 415 Pink in the Afternoon. What a cute name. I like this subtle and fresh shade of pink. I quite like the idea of a natural looking nude or pink lip. This is close to my natural lip colour, so I call it MLBB! It means ‘My lips, but better’. This lipstick has a creme texture and is moisturising. I am not a fan of lipgloss because they feel quite sticky to me, so this is a good creme texture lipstick that I would use!

Name: Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick, Creme, in 415 Pink in the Afternoon

Colour shade: A light pink, it is fresh and subtle. Good for those with fair skin.

Price: I bought this some time back, under a buy 1 get 1 free deal. Pretty sweet deal. But a usual retail price, this should cost around $17 or $18 SGD, if I remember correctly. I bought mine from Watsons.

Repurchase?: YES. Definitely. It’s an affordable lipstick which you can get from any drugstore or departmental store that carries Revlon.

Til next time : )
