Looking Cool in Hot Weather

Heat and humidity can make even the coolest of cool people break out in a steady sweat marathon. While the weather gets under everyone’s skin, that is still no excuse for one to scrimp on style – there are always suitable sartorial solutions for the savvy dresser who wants to strike a mean balance between comfort and style in the heat.

Here’s a tip – put on loose-fitting clothes made with fabric types that allow your body to breathe, providing you a brief respite in our tropical country. Clothes in cotton are one of your best weapons against the unyielding weather and the stretchy material gives you the freedom of movement.

These tops not only keep you cool and breezy, they also have an extra slimming effect. You can go for a muted palette for a dressier occasion or colourful stripes for the casual look, whichever suits your personality better.

Do also try these jumpsuits from Zalora in bright, bold colours that allow you to make a statement with minimal effort. Pair them with a pair of flats for a casual picnic date or peep-toe heels to give you an added air of sophistication. The jumpsuit is a versatile piece and definitely a must-have in your wardrobe to get through this hot summer.

Monday Beauty Poll: 2014 V.1

Untitled

…or so I thought!

Yesterday, we were just enjoying a Spring-like weather outdoors, without our jackets on and today is another story! Snow day, no work, no school, hence, I’ve got time for this beauty poll and then do some research on this foam padding online.

Golden Globes 2014: Beauty Trends

So I guess, my blogging mojo is back!
How’s the first 15 days of your 2014?
Mine seems productive (prayer&fasting completed, annual budgeting done! article on kurzweil keyboard at guitar center, check! check! check!) but lacking of discipline hee hee :-P .

I have spent my leisure time binge-watching (Hello Scandal, Revenge, Grey’s etc…) and binge-eating. I haven’t visited the gym for almost 2 months now and I plan to drop by later. Let’s see about that.

Since, I was too focused on catching up with my fave TV series, I wasn’t able to watch the recent Golden Globes. But as always, I wouldn’t miss the beauty trends on awards night such as this. Thanks to InStyle.com for the in-depth beauty trend review and here are my fave beauty trends of the night.

REVIEW: MAC Prep + Prime Lip

After almost a couple of years, I have finally used up my MAC Prep + Prime Lip, and so a review is in order. Don’t be fooled, this product does not come with a lot of quantity, it can be easily used up in say, 6 months X 1x/day. The only reason why I finished it up that long was because I seldom used it. As you may have noticed, there is still a tiny weeny bit of product left but I am so excited to bring this almost-empty packaging + 5 others to the MAC counter tomorrow and claim my free lipstick! More on the Back2MAC program later as I need to research on Navy challenge coins. Untitled Moving on to the review, there really is some advantage in using this but I can honestly say that this is just one of those products that are nice to have.

What is it? According to MAC’s product description:

“A colour-free base to wear under lipstick. Adds light moisture, smoothes and refines the lips. Improves the appearance of applied lip products.”

As for my own experience with this product, it definitely helps smoothen those fine lip lines especially when you wear matte lipstick. The longevity of your lipstick is highly improved. Though, one of my major concerns, is the way this product was made because mine got broken in about 2 weeks of usage and that is quite a bit of a letdown. I had to position the product every time I use it. I strongly recommend to open this product very carefully, if not slowly.

It also leaves a tacky feeling on my lips.  I would advice to skip this product, it is no better/no worse than my EOS lip balms, to emphasize, there is nothing that this lip primer can do that my Carmex lip balm can’t.

PROS:

  • It does what it says, smoothens fine lines and improves the appearance of lipcolors.
  • I love the vanilla scent it has.

CONS:

  • Expensive  for a lip primer, consider EOS or Carmex before checking this out.
  • Leaves a tacky feeling.
  • Gets broken off easily.

VANITY.KIT’s Rating: B

Value:

Ease of Use:

Packaging:

VERDICT:
