ColourPop Super Shock Cheek Highlighter - Flexitarian & Might Be

ColourPop came up with their new Super Shock Cheek Highlighters not too long ago. There were a total of four shades - Flexitarian, Might Be, Candyman and Do Not Disturb. They are $8 each so I picked out the first two shades since they were on the lighter side. 

Flexitarian - Swing both ways in this intense white champagne in a Pearlized finish
Might Be - You'll never know what this bright metallic rose gold in a Pearlized finish might be up to
Candyman - Get your fix with this super metallic rich gold in a Pearlized finish
Do Not Disturb - You won't want no interruptions while you're going strong in this vibrant warm bronze in a Pearlized finish

However, they arrived shattered and I was devastated. Plus, Might Be didn't look like a rose gold as described on the website. It seemed so dark that it leaned more towards a copper or bronze. Anyway, I contacted their customer service regarding the broken highlighters and managed to get replacements for them. 

If you've been researching lots on ColourPop, you'd know that the texture of their powders are pretty interesting and very different from other brands. These highlighters have a mousey texture and slightly damp feel to them. They are very squishy and spongey but they pick up easily on the fingers and you get the most pigmentation by applying the product using your fingers. 

This one is true to description. It's white with tons of silvery glitters and micro pink and green glitters. You don't really notice the colored glitters so it is perfect to use as a typical highlighter. This is great for light-fair skin tones.

Might Be
It looks darker on my face and is more of a blush or bonzer kinda color. I'm not sure how to use this as a highlighter since it applies dark on my skintone. I guess this would be more suitable for medium-dark skintones so that it shows up and blends better.

I did a light swatch on my hand. The colors are buildable but I'm not sure if I will ever want or need to use the shades in their full on pigmentation. Also, I washed these off and took a shower shortly after but noticed that some of the micro glitters were still around at night so that is some stubborn glitter. No hate though, because I want to coat my entire body in this glittery goodness. 

My camera fails to capture the true shine of these highlighters but they are truly very glittery. If you hate glitter then it is best to stay away from these. The glitter does transfer so it is not budge proof.

Real vs Fake Adidas Superstar/Stan Smith

I've wanted to do this post for a long time, ever since I started on my crazy collection of Adidas Superstars. I mean, I think I make quite a credible source because at one point, I owned 14 pairs of Superstars and Stan Smiths. I will be migrating my Superstar collection post over to this blog over the coming days so that you can read up on where I got them. I'm not sure if these shoes are still as popular and wanted now because I am sort of out of the loop but if you are looking to get yourself a pair of Superstars or Stan Smiths, these are a few pointers to look out for in identifying if what you are buying is real or fake. Take note that these features are mostly applicable to recent releases only. Old models and Superstar 80s are slightly different. Then again, old models are not sold in stores anymore so if you find brand new pairs elsewhere, you should be cautious.  I owned a a few pairs of fake Superstars before I purchased my first original pair from the Adidas

Arctic Fox Hair Dye Review on Dark Unbleached Hair

I've been meaning to try Arctic Fox's hair dyes for a couple of years but never got around to it because I feared it wouldn't show up on dark hair. It's been coming up more and more on Instagram again so I did some research and apparently Purple Rain, Aquamarine and Poseidon do show up on dark hair. So that's what I purchased! These retail for $7.99 (4 fl oz) or $13.99 (8 fl oz) on the Arctic Fox website but I got mine off Amazon .  Arctic Fox hair dyes are vegan and cruelty free. They also do not contain harsh chemicals like peroxides, ammonia and PPD. These are semi-permanent and they contain conditioning agents which means you can use these dyes as often as you want to without damaging your hair. Semi-permanent hair dyes only coat your hair so it will fade with each wash. The bottle claims that it can last up to 40 washes. These smell like grape candy so it is such a treat to use them. The instructions to use this is pretty simple. 1. Shampoo and w

diy: hair bows

From the cloth I bought recently at Daiso, and with the major diy mood I was in, I decided to make a bunch of hair bows to wear when school reopens. My tutorial has been inspired and sourced through many inspirations on pinterest.  Start off with a rectangular or square piece of fabric. Squares will result in bows like the blue floral one above while rectangles will be like this bow in the tutorial. Mine measured about 24cm by 12cm. For my blue floral one, i used a 15cm by 15 cm square.  Fold your fabric in half, with the insides facing out and straight stitch as highlighted. Leave a gap at the edge because you will be inverting the fabric after you're done sewing. This gap should also be of reasonable size, not to small or you will have trouble inverting the cloth.  Once you are done, invert the fabric and  straighten it out. You can sew up the gap at this point if it bothers you.  Using a pin or a needle, make some pleats with the fabric and pin through to get the bow s
