Review: Quo Summer Fantasy Palette – Beautiful

10 Jun

Hello everyone! So finally I get around to review this palette. There are two other variations of this palette the only thing that varies between the palettes are the eyeshadow colors. The other palettes are called Fame and Celebrity.

 (5th swatch in is the blush blended together)

Review: Beautiful really is… pretty (thought I was going to type beautiful didn’t you?). It has pretty shades that are workable for any skintone and the feel of these are sooo soft and silky it’s great. Pigmentation is so-so it’s not the most pigmented product out there but it’s good as you can build up the color as needed. There is no scent from these and lasts for about a regular workday so 6-8 hours. For the eyeshadow best to use primer underneath as it can slip and slide as the shades are just super silky. Overall a pretty great travel palette but I wish instead of two spongetip applicators I would like a brush and maybe an applicator.

Cost: $20CDN exclusively @ Shoppers Drug Mart Limited Release

Would I recommend this product? I would totally recommend this palette and it’s pretty multi-talented and perfect for travelling around.

Concept of Beauty 2 – Face

This is the second portion of the Concept of Beauty. For the first post please go to:

Comparisons of facial structures this time and what is ideal in both Asia and the West. Here is where lots of ideals are the same or so I find.

The Asian ideal face is to look basically Western.

A high nose bridge, round small face, big eyes, beautiful glowing skin and long dark hair is considered ideal in Asia… like this person:

I do not know what the ideal Western beauty is as there is so much variation in modern times but I can tell you what the ideal was back in the day.

Cherub cheeks, porcelain skin, petite shapes on the face. Nowadays… so much variation but I guess that it’s just the culture that we live in here in America. ^_^

I find that even though it is ideal to attempt to look Western most asian people do not look that the girl pictured above.

For example, me ^_^

I have a strong jawline, face structure is not a round shape, my eyes are small, and my nose is a button nose (which is very cute in my sense) but these features are not ideal in an asian person. If I had a defined jawline, smaller and defined nose, bigger eyeballs and a round face I would be pretty. But I’m not and I still like myself for who I am.

I find that if everyone had the same face the world would be dull and boring. Wise words of the day is ‘Spread love not hate’ and ‘Love yourself for who you are’.

The Effects of Lighting

9 Feb

This photo was just for fun today but I noticed something about it…

 Now guess what’s missing!

Due to the lighting I look like I’m missing an eyebrow… rawr! That and my eyeballs look quite out of proportion…

So as you can tell lighting can make a huge difference in what you are photographing… I don’t have any other examples except for this one any my other photos of previous posts… but it’s actually not that sunny outside but so much light is coming in. Scary!

Something new that I came across:

Top Row L-R: Bling Dynasty, Red My Fortune Cookie, Hot & Spicy, Dim Sum Plum, Jade is the New Black, Suzi Says Feng Shui

Bottom Row L-R: A Good Man-darin is Hard to Find, Lucky Lucky Lavender, Meet Me on the Star Ferry, Panda-monium Pink, Pearl of Wisdom, I’m Chop-Sticking to My Story

They are all such beautiful colors! I’m thinking about picking up… Dim Sum Plum, Panda-monium Pink, Pearl of Wisdom, Suzi Says Feng Shui… they all look so good! Next time I’m heading to Haare Kosmetiks I am definately picking up some of these colors and a base coat. ^_^

Well, off the studying again got a midterm tomorrow so I mustn’t be distracted by pretty nail polish colors!
