What To Do In Singapore: Rainforest Lumina

Rainforest Lumina is a the Singapore Zoo's newest night-time experience that is open for a limited time only. Admissions start at 7:30pm but entry is dependent on the time slot you purchased. I got my tickets from Hapz for $19.80 but if you are going during an off-peak period, I would recommend just purchasing directly from the Lumina website for $20 because you won't need to queue to pick up your tickets at the counter.
Also, do note that you won't be seeing any animals during this walk. I have no idea where the zoo keeps their animals each night for this event but they are not around.
Once you enter, you are greeted by the Rainforest Lumina arch that marks the beginning of your adventure. The lighting is really pretty and ethereal but it is honestly really really dark. We found it immensely difficult to take good pictures because of the low lighting conditions. 
While it is usually hot and humid during the day time, I found the walk to be rather cooling and breezy at th…

What To Do In Singapore: Vintage Camera Museum

As Singaporeans, we love to complain that there is nowhere to go and nothing to see in Singapore. So, while searching what to do and finding deals on Fave, I stumbled upon the Vintage Camera Museum. I did a bit of quick research and found that the building itself is camera shaped and it housed a bunch of vintage cameras. The bf and I were super bored and craving to go out, so that's where we headed to.

Cost
Admission to the museum is $8 for a weekday entry and $10 for a weekend entry on the Fave app. If you don't have an account yet, you can sign up and use my code HYFWQ at checkout for $2 off.

Location:
8C, 8D Jalan Kledek
Singapore 199264

The museum is located about 10 mins walk away from Jalan Besar station or 15 mins away from Bugis station. If you have a bus to Stamford Primary School, that would drop you off right across the museum.

We walked from Jalan Besar MRT and the route was safe, scenic and pleasant.

The Museum
The museum itself is hard to miss because it is a very wh…

What To Buy From Charlotte Russe's Sale Section

With one and a half more months of summer to go, I decided to hit up Charlotte Russe's sale section to see what they have. I found a ton of good deals and cute clothing, especially when it comes to shoes. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw heels for less than $5 (OMG). I really like some of their skirts and jumpsuits as well so I compiled a whole list of my must-haves from their sale section. Lots of sizes are still available as I'm writing this but you might want to act fast!

Cold Shoulder Jumpsuit ($15.99)
I love this kind of cold shoulder necklines with flutter details. I just think it is super feminine and more dressed up. This is a very neutral color that would suit any occasion. It's so easy to wear and fuss-free.

Striped Belted Jumpsuit ($18.99)
Stripe jumpsuits are an essential in any closet if you are into jumpsuits. They make you look taller and slimmer. This is a simple, non-complicated design with a belt to cinch your waist so that everything looks mor…

Covergirl Trublend Matte Made Foundation Review on Oily Combo Skin (NC 20)

Hooray for drugstore foundations, especially when they are catered towards oily skin. This new Covergirl foundation comes in 40 shades and retails for $9 (1 oz/30ml). The foundation claims to be naturally matte, flexible and comfortable. It also claims to blur pores and be transfer proof. You should be able to find it easily at the drugstore but I got mine off Amazon.  I am Asian with fair skin and neutral warm undertones and I got the shade L40 Classic Ivory which turned out to fit perfectly. I am usually NC20 or #21 in korean foundations.  This foundation comes in a glass bottle which feels very sturdy and it has a pump with a lock mechanism. Overall, the feel of it is pretty good for the price.  The consistency of the foundation leans towards the creamy side but it spreads and blends easily. This is how the foundation looks upon application. Top photo shows my bare skin. You can see some redness, zits and my bigass pores.  After a layer of foundation, most of the redness has been …

ColourPop Matte Lux Lipstick Swatches & Review on Asian Skin

ColourPop released another finish for their lux lipsticks during their birthday month. These are the matte finishes because who doesn't love a good matte lip? They are packed with moisturizing ingredients and blurring pigments to produce a velvety smooth finish and I really really like them.
They come in the same tube as the creme lux lipsticks and retail for $7 (3.5g). If you've tried the matte x lippie stix, you would have an idea of how these would feel and perform because the formulas are 95% similar. The only difference is that the lux lipsticks are a little bit more moisturizing and the blurring pigments ensure that your lip lines are not accentuated. 
TBH, Colourpop should just convert all the matte x lippie stix into matte lux lipsticks because that would save us some coin ($2/g for lux lipsticks vs $5/g for lippie stix) and it is also pretty pointless to have two separate collections for them since the finish and performance are so similar.
I would totally get all th…

Lime Crime Wet Cherry Lip Gloss Swatches & Review on Asian Skin (NC20)

Lime Crime came out with their new line of sheer lip glosses recently. I've done a swatch and review video on YouTube but I haven't done a write-up with close up swatch pictures for anyone who wants reference.

There are 14 shades in total at the moment and they retail for $18. You get 2.96ml of product in each tube, which honestly is quite little. These lip glosses come in a chubby clear acrylic tube with a pink cap. The tube itself is quite big but don't let it fool you, because 2.96ml/0.1oz of product isn't as much as it looks.

The applicator is a really big doe foot which is great for full lips but for me, it's just way too big and the applicator tends to pick up too much product for one application. The lip gloss has a delicious cherry candy scent to it which I love though!

These go on sheer because they are meant to be sheer lip glosses. They give a nice tinted look but some colors tend to look streaky up close because of this. They do sink into your lip line…
