NOTD | MAYBELLINE BETTER IN BUFF

Its coming to another end of the month and before we know it, it will be a new year. Oh also its Tuesday and you know what means, its another NOTD post think nude nail polishes are all year round nail polishes and saying that today I have another one, its the shade Better In Buff by Maybelline.

Its just right shade for my skin and looks so pretty, I mean can we such take a minute to appreciate that I found a nude nail polish to suit my skin tone, its a real effort I tell you. The nail polish has a good consistency and the brush is pretty easy to maneuver and apply the polish onto the nails. I did have to apply 2 coats for the true colour of the polish to pop on my nails. The polish dried up pretty fast and as usual the lasting power is the usual 2-3 days with slight chipping.

NOTD | L'OREAL MACARON NOISETTE

Today I have a bit of a different nail polish shade, I usually if you have been reading my blog by now know that I love darker nail polish shades but I was clearing out my nail polishes and came across this shade and I decided to give it ago, d out better than expected. Its more of a champagne pink nail polish since it didn't look too bad on my nails I thought I will share it you all. Its the shade Macaron Noisette by L'oreal.

I couldn't get over how pretty this shade was and as much as I know its not a very Autumn appropriate nail polish I just had to give it ago and try it out. This is me stepping out of my comfort zone.Pastel nail polishes aren't usually my thing but then again you have to try everything.

Its such pretty shade and strangely not too bad looking on my skin tone. I should have worn this during summer it would have been awesome on a sunny day out. I like the L'oreal brush that comes with the nail polish, its easy to apply and doesn't streak at all. The nail polish itself is a bit sheer so depending o how bright you want it you will have to apply 2-3 coats of it. I have to say its the usual wear time for me which is usually 2-3 days with slight chipping. I will definitely be wearing this next summer for sure.

KIKO EYEBROW FIBERS

I love doing my brows, I feel it makes such a big difference for me that I always try to do them before I go out. This obsession has me on the look out for brow products that are worth my time and effort. Recently Kiko launched in Hong Kong and I remember I bought a few products from them when I was living in London and loved it so I decided to go and see what they have and get myself a few stuff. I just had to try their products so, I decided to get the Kiko Eyebrow Fibers in the shade 05 which is deep brunette (they dont have names on the product itself and most of them are just numbered but if you check on the website it has a name).

As you can see its just like a regular mascara except the size of the bristles were a bit smaller in size. The size is actually quite travel friendly too so it comes in handy when your on the go. Lets get down to the nitty-gritty of it all. I used to use the brow gel as a finishing products, once I had filled my brows I used it to seal and set the brows as the final step but recently I had been using as my go to product to fill my brows instead of my usual brow pencil or powder. I used the spoolie to comb through the brows and fill them in and I then used the brow powder to fill in the gaps and shape the arches to give it a fuller look and complete the brows. I have been loving this method, its fast and easy and makes my brows look really natural just the way I like it.

This eyebrow fiber is just lovely, to be honest its one of my favourite at the moment. It fills my brows creating the fuller effect and at the same time it keeps my brows in place all day, specially in this heat and humidity here in Hong Kong it stands the test of longevity. The pigmentation is great and its build-able to your liking. Whats most amazing is that when you take the brush out on the tube a whole load of product doesn't come out with the spoolie, so your not wasting and you have control of how much product gets onto your brows. The bristles help to actually get all the brow hairs coats with the gel and even the little straight ones. Overall its been a winner for me and so easy to use and pretty fast.

This is a definite in my books, I really like it and having using this as my main brow product recently. Its inexpensive and does the job, give you awesome look brows that will stay put all day long. I suggest you give this ago if you can get your hands on Kiko products.

What do you think of the Kiko eyebrow fiber? Is it something you will try? Let me know in the comment box below.

NOTD | RIMMEL BLACK CHERRY

I am a sucker when it comes to dark nail polish specially nail polishes in the plum spectrum. As its getting into the colder months and Autumn has begun already even though here in Hong Kong I am still waiting for it to get colder, that does not mean I still cant enjoy a good dark nail polish. As its Tuesday again meaning its another NOTD and today I have Black Cherry from Rimmel.

I think its the best shade to transition from sunny to cold weather, the nail polish not too dark and still has a bit of shine and glow to the polish so if your still having sunny days like me then this is still perfect. As always Rimmel does really good nail polishes, they are very pigmented and last pretty well on the nails with very little chipping.

The nail polish just needs two coats and you've got the true colour showing up on your nails. They dry up pretty fast too so you don't have to wait with your fingers up in the air for it to dry. Rimmel has a lovely brush that comes with all their nail polishes making the application very easy and no streaks at all. Its the usual wear time for me which is usually 2-3 days with slight chipping.

NOTD | REVLON SMOULDERING

Its Tuesday again and its my favourite day of the week all because I get to share my favourite nail polishes with you all. As for today's NOTD I have with my Revlon Smouldering, as usual I buy it from local beauty store Sasa and it cost HK$39. Its a nail polish that's not really Autumn appropriate, as its still sunny over here in Hong Kong and I actually really love the colour, and thought its perfect for the transition season, so here goes.

The colour has a bit of sparkle to it and has a shiny finish once it has completely dried up. I quite like it, I mainly to stick to more darker shades as they suit my skin tone better but this actually  pretty good for a more pastel shade. Since some days its raining and gloomy and then some days bright and sunny I thought this will be the be the best shade at the moment for the weird weather we have been experiencing.

The nail polish dries up pretty fast as it is a bit sheer so you will need to apply at least 2-3 coats for the tr nail lour to stand out. Its the usual wear time for me which is usually 2-3 days with slight chipping.
