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 lines as well but they do feel moisturizing and lightweight.

Frozen Cherry (Sparkling Aqua)
This is a clear gloss packed with tons of blue glitter. This would make a great lip topper to give an iridescent twist to any shade. The glitter does not feel gritty at all and I did not need to pack on the lip gloss to achieve this much sparkle on my lips.

Disco Cherry (Rainbow Iridescent)
This is another clear gloss with yellow, pink and green glitters. This one looks good even when worn alone.

Naked Cherry (Nude Blush)
This is a beautiful nude lip gloss that fortunately, doesn't pull too pale or washed out on me. This shade would look great with smokey eyes but I wouldn't wear it if I didn't had any eye makeup on because it would make me look kinda dead.

Maraschino Cherry (Cherry Red)
This is a classic red shade in sheer lip gloss form. Perfect for those who want to rock a red lip but nothing too red or intense. I mean, it's a classic look.

Sour Cherry (Hot Pink)
If bright colors intimidate you, this might be a good option as it goes on a little bit sheerer. It's still pretty pigmented but toned down.

Tangy Cherry (Blazing Orange)
I don't normally like orange lip colors but I think this is pretty fun. Since it is on the sheer side, it doesn't look too orange so it's a great way for me to step out of my comfort zone with colors.

Diet Cherry (Deep Berry)
I wish this shade didn't look as patchy as it does because it is a nice color and I tend to go for darker shades of red if I were to wear a red. However, I'm not into the streaky look and I'm thinking a drugstore lip gloss can give me more even coverage than this.

Cherry Pie (Bright Pink Red)
This is such a fun color for summer. It's a bright popsicle lip kind of shade.

Sweet Cherry (Soft Mauve)
This is definitely a shade that I would reach for very often. It is a beautiful MLBB but deeper kind of color and would go with all sorts of looks. This would help to accentuate your lips but not too much. Definitely a shade to pick up.

Baby Cherry (Baby Pink)
I thought I wouldn't like this shade but it honestly didn't look that bad from afar. It's kind of streaky and you can definitely see it sink into my lip lines.

Juicy Cherry (Iridescent Pink with Gold Flip)
This shade has a slight pink tint with lots of pink glitter. It looks like a sheer metallic lip gloss when worn alone but would look amazing as a lip topper on rosey lipsticks.

Bitter Cherry (Soft Brown Nude)
If you're looking for a sheer wash of color or a MLBB kind of shade, this is the one to go for. This would go with all sorts of looks and can be dressed up or dressed down.

Black Cherry (Deep Red Black)
I was kind of expecting this shade to be a lot darker because of how it appears in the tube. It looks very similar to Diet Cherry so you don't need both.

There is also a clear gloss in this collection called Extra Poppin'.

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 website. …

ALL ColourPop Ultra Matte Lip Swatches on Asian Skin + Review

Recently, I dug into my collection of ColourPop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks and swatched all the available shades on their website. I'm missing 5 from the website and over here, I have 31. The rest have been swatched in other collection videos/posts.

Midi (Pale Dusty Pink) Against my skin tone, this is like a pastel pink. The color remains quite close to that of the tube but the formula is slightly thick and it does settle in my lip lines and feel dry. Not exactly a color I would pull off often but I can see it working with a colorful eye look or a smokey eye.

Bianca (Soft Mauve) Love this shade and it remains quite true to the tube but it is so drying and crumbly on the lips. It accentuates my lip lines and it cracks when I smile. One of the worse formulas in this bunch, especially considering that it is a nude and most companies do not mess these sort of colors.

Clueless (Dusty Mauve) This is a really cute shade. It pulls off pinker on me than in the tube and although ColourPop d…

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 shape. Once yo…
