FASHIONARY Neon Light Review and Giveaway

77 notes Reblog Comments

Thank you once again to Jasper of AVALON.PH for making this review and giveaway possible~! :)


*Cue in drumrolll* 
Fashionary recently released a new member of the family — the Neon Light which is sort of like a mini Fashionary. It’s about the size of my palm (9 x 16cm) which makes it very handy & easy to carry around thus the tagline “sketching on your palm”.

Say Hello to Smoother & Brighter skin with PASJEL

27 notes Reblog Comments

First of all, a big thanks to Shadz Online Shop for sending these in for me to try~! Shadz  is one of the biggest online stores I have ever come across. They have a wide selection/variety of cosmetics/beauty essentials/supplements mainly from Japan and Thailand. Name it and they just might have it!

I was quite shocked to see some blog entries trash talking about Shadz Online Shop ~ (selling fake items/rude seller). It’s really scary how jealousy can lead to unethical & irrational behavior —going through lengths just to spread negativity. Yikes. However, you have my word that Shadz is a legit seller (not to mention, very pleasant and accommodating too) with legit products — They have hundreds/thousands of products on-hand plus official sites (Pasjel/Baby Kiss) mention them as their official re-seller.

Anyway! Moving on to the product review :D I’m sorry it took me so long to post this. I was actually waiting for a pimple break-out of some sorts so I can make a better review the products. hehe. 

Warning: Photo of forehead pimples/ acne scars ahead ! Sorry it’s disgusting LOL

Let’s admit it, majority —if not everyone, has experienced nasty pimple break-outs or simply feel like you have dull ugly skin days. If you’re one of us, read on! This popular product from Thailand might just help~! 

Pasjel Evernight Blue (Body Cream) and Pasjel Cherry tender (Night Facial Cream).

Maybelline Limited Edition Hello Kitty Volum’ Express Mascara | Review

13 notes Reblog Comments

image

I received this Limited Edition Mascara from a very good friend of mine for Christmas (late, I know right) ~ I’ve already seen this mascara on shelves a few years back but I wasn’t too keen on buying it (Yes, despite it being Hello Kitty) since I’ve already tried using the regular one (Maybelline Volum’ Express) — which coincidentally, was one of the first mascaras i’ve tried (along with Etude House -I forgot the name- Mascara)

K-Palette 1 Day Tattoo Eyeliner Review

12 notes Reblog Comments

I received this GORGEOUS (ehem, pink biased) K-Palette eyeliner a few weeks back. Obviously, I adore the Limited Edition packaging! ~ ( Thanks so much Cheryl! ) 

English description/instructions located at the back are always helpful and informative!

This is my second eyeliner from K-Palette ( I bought the ‘Deep Brown’ shade in Sasa Singapore roughly about a year ago) ~ I also bought the 1 Day tattoo eyebrow pen in brown but I lost it :(

13 notes Reblog Comments

I decided to give this a try since Tricia swears by it~! (hallooo Tweesia!) I also would have bought it in a heartbeat anyway because it has the cutest packaging in the world! The Prostyle Fuwarie Hair Mist by Kracie comes in 3 variations : 

1. Straight Style

2. Curly Style

3. Air Bob Style

I ended up purchasing the third (Air Bob) since I plan to use it on my forever moody and rebellious bangs.

Rhodia [ Uni - Blank ] Sketchpad Review

27 notes Reblog Comments

Hi everyone!

Hope you had a splendid Christmas! Before anything else, I want to wish you all a very happy new year ! (*・∀・)/♡\(・∀・*) Thank you for always reading my random entries! hee~

Anyway, I’m so excited to share my new sketchpad review with everyone! 

Got this at Fully Booked [Eastwood Branch] a few days back :)

It cost me Php 280.00 for 30 pages of high grade vellum paper ! Not bad at all (‘u’*)♪

image

If you follow me on FacebookTwitter, or Instagram — it’ll be quite obvious that I enjoy inking and coloring with markers. A LOT.

I’ve been using CANSON pad (which is awesome, btw) since college days but I’ve also been trying out a lot of different sketchpads recently. This is by far my favorite for inking :) Marker pads are still the best for markers (duh)

I haven’t tried to ink on a sketchpad Moleskine since I only have the watercolor Moleskine variant. — Has anyone tried inking on the sketchpad Moleskine? Is it awesome? (*・_・)ノ

***

Look and Feel : 

Rating : ★★★★★ (5/5)

• Very sleek and classy front cover material/design

( This is why I picked it up in the first place. It’s so aesthetically pleasing and handsome I’d buy it in a heartbeat). You’ll feel a sense of pride every time you pull it out and show people. heh. /Obviously a sucker for sleek designs.

• Cover isn’t like the regular pads — it’s very smooth but thick. I’m not sure what material is used — it looks like glossy plastic but with a matte feel. 

• Last page is a hard cardboard sheet for extra durability (woohoo)

• Pages are VERY smooth and VERY white ( People who prefer textured paper might not like this; especially true for pastel/charcoal/paper/paint/watercolor artists ). This is definitely not a problem for me since I use markers and pigment ink most of the time. I’ve actually been looking for a sketchpad with smoother paper (compared to Canson) and a cheaper alternative to my Letraset marker pads (which are hella expensive! Php800+). 

***

Basic Specifications:

Rating : ★★★★ (4/5)

image

• High grade vellum paper in white

• Unruled

• No perforation (Can’t peel off / remove pages | Pages stay intact )

• A4

• 80g/m2

• 21.3 lb

— Not sure if I’m happy that I can’t remove the pages. It’ll be a pain in the butt every time I need to scan something off the pages. But then again, I won’t have to trouble myself with random falling pages that peel off due to overuse and for whatever reasons.

***

Sample Sketch : Pencil Lead in Blue 0.7

Rating : ★★★★★ (5/5)

PERFECT. ∑(O_O;) Shock !

Comes off easily when erased and doesn’t leave any marks (unlike Canson). Only applies to people who sketch lightly of course. It’ll inevitably leave a mark if you sketch like there’s no tomorrow / heavy hand sketching. 

* Why I use blue lead? — because it’s easier to trace over. I don’t get confused when I ink as opposed to using black lead (black over black)

* Brand of pencil and blue lead : Pilot ENO 0.7 (National Bookstore)

***

Sample Inking : Unipin in 0.005 | 0.1 | 0.2 | 0.5

Rating : ★★★★★ (5/5)

CAPS LOCK CANNOT FULLY EXPRESS MY UTMOST GLEE.


I am jumping up and down happy with this sketchpad! My unipins found their soulmate! Ink glides smoothly.

No thinning of paper or no residual fiber (? — HAHA I don’t know what it’s called) when I go over the same stroke several times.

Ink doesn’t fade as much as other sketchpads when I erase the blue lines lessening my inking time cause I don’t have to go over all the lines again.

If you’re fond of inking, this is the perfect pad for you! You will vomit rainbows.

***

Sample Coloring : Copic Markers

Rating : ★★★★ (4/5)

• Colors come out vibrantly

• Ink glides on smoothly on paper 

• Blending is a bit harder since paper is thinner and it dries faster.

• Markers do not cause your pigment ink to bleed ( But please allow about 30 min - an hour prior to coloring to be sure)

• You can build up your color with the same shade of marker

• You have to work very quickly if you want flawless/transition free color blends (Use a marker pad if you want easier blending — however, this is a great alternative for practice and non-commission works)

• Marker will bleed on the back page like most pads so make sure you have a scratch paper underneath while you work.

***

I think that’s about it :) Hope this helps~!

Tell me what you think :) Do you have any other brand suggestions? <3
