Berina Hair Color Cream Review
L'Oreal Paris EverStrong Deep Replenishing Masque Review
Don't be blaffed by the neon shade here, it only appear super purple because of the lighting... and I'm using the front cam of my Iphone. ^_^" Later in this post, you will get to see more of my LOTD~
OOTD: Rock on!!!
I was debating whether to wear this denim vest or not... Posted this on instagram, twitter & FB and everyone who replied said 'wear it'!
Oh, my purple eyes matches the web/fishnet tights. Thanks to Jerlaine for reminding me to wear PRETTY leggies, and so she kinda reminded me that I have these for a long time but haven't got chance to wear them. Super happy that I can put them on now~ Btw its actually a gift from Na. ^_^

LUNA SEA The End of the Dream Asia Tour 2013
Gotta thank these people for bringing cameras and offering to take pics with me otherwise, I won't have any pics of me at the event. hahhax~
Here's me, Xinyi, Kiyora and Kiyora's friend. Credits to xinyi's camera and her bf, Jon.
I'm like a big giant beside them.... (<_<")
And thanks to Kai too for taking pic with me~ Why i look so upset? Cos my hair got centre parting?
I like her tattoo stockings! ♥ Just realised we both wear denim outers. hahax~
And finally inside the concert hall!! I think its fate that my Jrock 'old' friends (not old as in age..) came walking in infront of us. I literally just wave my hands into their face hahhax~
This is the one and only most beautiful picture I took using my iPhone... As can see, I'm at the upper deck. Alot of my friends are at the first level! I'm not a huge HUGE fan of LUNA SEA but I still love them especially Sugizo! ^_^ And I love Ryuichi's vocal~ It makes me tremble~~~
From the upper deck, I can clearly spot less than 10% of the fans are holding their phones/camera up to take pics/videos of Luna Sea when they were performing. When it come to silence moments, there will be more than 30% of the fans holding their phones up. And when they start performing again, all phones are down.
Unlike Kpop concerts (or MAMA which I went to), its like more than 30% of the fans will hold their phones up throughout the concert. I cant even see who is dancing infront of me. All I could see are the artistes through someone else's phone/camera screen. I think Jrock fans truely know how to enjoy a concert, they jump, they shriek, they headbang to every song that Luna Sea plays. I love this kind of crowd... or perhaps, its because we are older? I think most Luna Sea fans are like age 25 and above? lolx~ So we kinda feel tired holding a phone up for too long.. (besides Sebas that is. Lolx~)
After the concert, old friends gathered at Bugis for steamboat x BBQ. No need to say where I am, you can spot me even from another building.
An instagram pic of me and Mimi after the concert~ His pupils sho big!
LOTD with MUFE & Sleek Palettes
Left: MUFE TechniColor palette
Right: Sleek Carribean palette
I headbanged, I sweat, I ate steamboat.. and my hair & face is like this...
Eye makeup featuring the 'Lilac' shade from MUFE TechniColor palette and 'Purple Haze' from Sleek Carribean palette.
I applied Lilac all over my eyelid and then used Purple haze at the crease and outer corner. I need to practice more on shading dark colours as I always have 1 rounded corner and 1 sharp corner. *sigh~*
The MUFE Lilac colour-payoff is really great! When I apply it on my eyes, the colour is exactly how it looks like from the palette. You know when you use light shades, it often appear even lighter than the palette. Or most of the time I think it is until I met MUFE eye shadows. Gota ♥♥♥ them!
Sleek's Purple haze is also pigmented but I find it hard to blend it into MUFE Lilac. I can see obvious lines of the dark purple at my creases. PLUS, I lack the skill in doing such eye makeup properly, so the whole eyelid colour just look kinda uneven. I am sorry to have spoilt all of your eyes for looking at my ugly LOTD... ^__,^"""
To end this post with a CNY mood, I present you red flowers sold by JONES!
One JONES selling CNY decorations not enough, there must be another JONES selling flowers ah?
It's been really really long that I feature my OOTD here as I mostly just post it on my Instagram on the go. Save time to upload pics/PS-ing etc..
I had not been updating haul posts on my blog too so here is one of the newest tattoo stocking haul that I had featured in my instagram~ ^_^ Follow my instagram HERE to get live previews, updates and stuffs!

Majolica Majorca The Little Humming Book 1 Review
I used the Moonless Night (dark plum shade) as Eyecream base by applying it with my ring finger on my eyelids. I dabbed it over my eyelids and stopping at the area around the creases.
I applied Flower Dust (white) eyeshadow over the whole eyelids, then applied Green Shower (mint) eyeshadow near the upper lashline and bottom lashline. At the inner bottom lashline area, I used a pearl eyeliner pencil to line it to make me eyes look brighter.
The pictures below shows my eye makeup AFTER wearing it for more than 6 hours.
Sometimes I use lip gloss BEFORE a lipstick because I either 1) forgot to bring my lip balm..lolx~, 2) prefer not to have glossy & plump looking lips, or 3) lipstick doesn't glide on easily as it needs a little friction or a sticky base to work it.
The Little Humming Book 1 (Limited Edition) SGD$25.90

About Beautiful Japan Denim
As one of such projects, JRunway’s management company AWCG Pte. Ltd. has collaborated with Kurashiki Fashion Centre (and their 10 denim companies) to showcase and to operate test marketing at JRunway. This project aims to do branding, test sales and seek business matching opportunity within the domestic market with their quality denim products from Japan. To kick-off the project, a fashion runway show has been collaborated with Singapore’s well-known fashion school, LASALLE College of the Arts from its concept-making to the entire operation. All brands involved will also be exhibiting their merchandising samples for viewing.
ABOUT KURASHIKI DENIM INDUSTRY
“Kurashiki” is a name of local city in Okayama prefecture, well-known for manufacturing denim products. “Kurashiki Fashion Centre” is a company formed by several denim manufacturers and the local government of Kurashiki-city to pursue industrial development.
It is one of the world’s finest jeans production areas with its long history as the capital of textile since Edo-period (1603-1869). The craftsmanship which has been established over centuries is always combining with new, young, evolving ideas. Thus they maintain creating high quality jeans with sensitivity to the smallest details that is always attracting denim lovers all over the world.
In 1960s and 1970s where a huge number of Japanese brands appeared like bamboo shoots and started manufacturing jeans, Big John was born with pride as a manufacturer of domestic jeans among them. Pouring its ‘know-how’ accumulated from sewing work wear and uniforms originally in Kojima into denims, Big John has become a Japan-made jeans brand representing Kojima.
Designer Maruyama Eisuke from StudioM in Okayama released his new range of jeans designed for the international market in 2007. Featuring some insanely nice Japanese quality fabric and inventive but stylish design, these jeans are sure to be common place amongst those in the know with fashion.
There are inherited traditions, techniques and materials from around Kojima area in Okayama, Japan. Products made in this area have the power and warmth of the people. DANIA aims to create products by combining the tradition, the power of the people and the evolving technique.
DANIA’s brand theme is something like “Ripples”. For example, it is not the wind from an electric fan, but nice, natural breeze. DANIA produces items with these kinds of images.
DELAY BY Win&Sons
DELAY’s products are produced through the reliable sewing + processing technique in Japan, combined with their sensitivity, skills and soul. Every process is based on the faith between people who are involved. DELAY wish that their “creative spirits” hits your heart and echoes forever, as DELAYed sound.
DENIM CLOSET’s 3D pattern method provides you a perfect fit, which you have never experienced before. The carefully chosen Japanese denim is so soft that it'd make you feel comfortable with every move; you'd even forget that you're wearing jeans. Designed and produced for every woman, especially from the late 20s to 40s.
FOB FACTORY’s theme by making clothes is “developing new ideas by learning from the past” as ‘it is important for us to talk to the artisans and learn from their experienced technique.’ FOB FACTORY’s products may not look showy, but are made one by one with care, wishing that its sensitive texture may be cherished by the owner, and that they will make the owner’s life a little bit happier.
Momotaro Jeans uses only the best natural raw materials and dyes the cotton yarn with natural indigo blue to weave the Original denim using its vintage looms by hand. At Momotaro Jeans, the artisans have a saying: “Made by hand without compromise”. All you have to do is try on a pair of Momotaro Jeans and you will see for yourself from the exquisite details and rich indigo blue that Momotaro jeans are of superior quality.
OMNIGOD recognizes their clothes as goods which expresses lifestyle.
Always remembering the fact, which is “worn by people”. OMNIGOD produces goods with great wear comfort and textures by making the most use of materials and process methods. Real clothes needed by people, OMNIGOD hopes to make such goods.
Tenryo Denim prides itself on creating quality products. They use unsanforized selvage denim constructed on vintage looms. Bold, brightly coloured logos highlight their focus on fashion, but the use of kanji in their logo points to the historical aspect of their brand.
SEAMS proudly produces their high-quality Jeans made in Okayama, Japan, in collaboration with an Italian designer Piero Turk. Every manufacturing process is performed in Okayama by experienced craftsmen. It is a collaboration of Italy and Japan.
During the fashion show, besides getting my eyes glued to the hunks (uhhh-hum.) I also took a closer look at the details on all the designs, mostly the jeans and jackets. The buttons, pockets, up to the zips & seams were very nicely designed and sewn. I totally dig those jeans that the guys wore, they look so cool in them.
Here's the models dressed in denim apparels made by the 10 brands. I think my picture collage can serve as a 'How to dress in denims' reference book. Lolx~
*Note: I didn't post up all the pics I took as few of them were blur. Sorry for the semi-blur images. ▽ Click to enlarge images ▽
Beautiful Japan Denim Pop-up Showroom
After the event, we were also invited to view their pop-up showroom that was set up just a short distance away from the Plaza Singapura extension wing entrance
I totally love the pop-up showroom idea. It is fully air-conditioned (for spoilt singaporeans who hate hot weather, like me! Lolx~) and the afternoon sunlight shone through the glass windows making the interior look bright, yet cozy. Every product showcased inside this showroom appeared sharp and clear to my eyes and my camera lens.
Denim is a woven fabric that uses yarn like these.
They covered half of the floor with their denim fabric that look almost like my denim canvas shoes! haha~
commonplace half jeans sewn onto a denim fabric with their logo printed over in gold, such a beautiful artwork.
More jeans from SEAMS, on the racks & on the floor. Spot rainbow macarons in this pic. lolx~
Tie dye + distressed denim? So cool~
What I took from the pop-up showroom, lots of catalogues!
Among all, SEAMS catalogue stands out the most. They used their denim fabric to make a 'pocket', embroidered on one side and printed their logo on the other.

Earlier this month, I attended the Haraju-Cute! Blogger launch event. It was a fun one as there were so many Japanese cult brand cosmetics for us to play with.
Here I have is my goodie bag with a drawing of me in manga style!! It was really nice of them to find a Japanese manga artist (who lives in Singapore) to draw our faces base on our real photos! ♥ First time ever someone address me as Min Joo Neul (korean nick used in my Facebook) instad of miwitch. =P
On July 2012, Porcelain the face spa celebrates their 3rd birthday, at the same time launching their Flawless Skin Perfecting Moisturizer (SPF 20)!
Last month, Ah ru invited me to go to K5J by KARA Showcase 2012 @ Grand Festive, Resort World Sentosa with her.
Since I'd been liking Kpop songs for few years now and listened to nearly every girl and boy band (more of boybands hahahax~) so I thought, why not?! (But I still prefer watching boyband concert wahahax~)
I had never been to a showcase before and I heard from Na that showcase is not a concert. So they probably not going to perform much songs and they would only focus on showcasing the fragrance which they are launching.
Below shows a screencap of K5J site, its really beautiful! Having them dressed in white gowns like brides or princesses as the background and the fragrance in the middle~ Sooooo dreamy!
Here's the actual product I took... More product pics shown later below! *SCROLL SCROLL*
Taken this at the Showcase! ^^ *PSss!* By right, i can't bring camera into Grand Festive. I got told off by the security so I quickly put back my cam. Opps!.. =p~
KARA came out dressed in their beautiful gown like costumes! SeungYeon was sick so she didn't appear in this showcase.. Awwww...
During the showcase, they only sang 2 songs.. and most of the time they talked about K5J, played video of how K5J comes about and inviting KARA fans to answer questions and do some moves on the stage. It was pretty funny when they came to the dancing part! =D
Overall, it was pretty entertaining! But I'm kinda disappointed KARA didn't sing any of my favourite songs like LUPIN or STEP UP or MISTER.
They did however played MISTER for their fans to dance to. ^^
Among the 5, I always liked Gyu Ri and Hara more than the rest. I'm judging just by their looks actually..hahahax~ Gyu Ri appears to look like the 'mature' & 'Sexy' one... and Hara the 'Princess' one. I also sometimes thinks that Hara looks very much like Namie Amuro!! Do you think so too?! =D
TADAH!!! Our K5Js!
At the showcase, we met up with Joyce Lim & Valerie! All 4 of us so blur that we didn't know there was this complimentary K5J tear-out coupon (attached to the seat ticket) and we were all super happy when they start giving K5J to everyone at the exit! Lolx~
Much thanks to Ah ru again for bringing me along if not I wont have the K5J! Hehehx! *muacks muacks*

K5J Product Packaging
I SUPER LOVE the box!! That rainbow glitter dots hologram!! How did they do that???! I wanted to print a coscard with hologram, anyone knows who can do so? (>,<) Or perhaps only UK have such kind of materials?? (⌐∆⌐")
At the back of the card, shows a code number for us to register the fragrance.
K5J is a 45ml Eau De Toilette. The jewel cap which appears to look like its made of acrylic and its main body is made of glass.
At first sniff, the scent is sweet but not too much that makes me think of candy. It also smells a little fruity and after it settles down for awhile, it kinda smells alittle towards woody and.. powdery? The powdery scent somehow lead to a floral scent.. this fragrance makes my nose confused. lolx~ Because the fragrance is a mixture of everything - fruits, flowers, wood.. thats why it smells like everything in a mix!
I like how K5J smells as its nothing too strong or too sweet. It however might take more than 2 sprays at each point you spray, to bring out the scent because it's rather light to the nose.
Alternatively, you can also purchase K5J at Zalora.sg @ SGD$58 with FREE shipping Islandwide! ^^
I recently received a Giftcard given by ZALORA which allows 10% discount for all items *terms & conditions apply*. If anyone would like to use this 10% coupon which is valid till 2012 August 15th, please key in this coupon code: ZREWARD5rqA. Only for ONE TIME use!! First come first serve! ^_^

Till then! Cheers! (●♡●)

I.Fairy 2012 new designs are Cara and Casper & many more! Each cost about ~SGD$18 with shipping.
Here's what I got. ^^
I.Fairy Cara Green (left): I suppose Cara means something like Carat? Because of its sparkling diamond like print.
I.Fairy Casper Green (middle): Casper the friendly Ghost lens? lolx~ I would probably name this lens HIPPIES, because of its colours & batik like print.
I.Fairy Cara Brown (right): I think this is the nicest design and most prominent brown shade among all I.Fairy lenses!
