Best of 2016

Here I'm back with another traditional blog post at the end of the year, ,my 2016 favourites!

So far, I didn't try that much new product this year but I'm trying to minimise my skincare routine and makeup collection as I don't see the point of having loads of makeup and don't get to use it.

My first favourite is my new discovery this year. I decided to jump on a bandwagon for the Colourpop Ultra Satin Lip, which to be honest, I don't think I'm gonna like it. As I ran out of my favourite NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in colour Stockholm, I decided to try the Colourpop in the colour Calypso as the NYX one ran out of stock everywhere, and I fall in love with this lipstick. The packaging I think is more beautiful than the NYX one and the formula is better. This last so long as I eat and also don't dry my lip out.

Since I come back from the UK, no matter how much powder I tried, I always turned back to the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder as it's transparent and keep my face look matte. I have nothing much to say about this powder because I think everyone knows how good it is.

And my yearly favourite could not complete without the YSL Youth Liberal Foundation, which I discovered when I was in Sweden. This is by far the best foundation I've tried. I know that this is so pricy, but I think it worth every SEK I spend. This foundation is not too dry and it's not matte which some people might not like but I think it's perfect without any powder on top even in summer time as I have a very dry skin.

Moving on to skincares, I discover the Mario Badescu Face Spray. I basically use it as the toner before I apply skincare and I found that my skin care absorb a lot quicker. Sometime before I apply makeup, I use this for a lil of moisture as well.

The next one is my random piece of skincare that I pick up in Arlanda Airport. I had a spot on my face, which wasn't go away for a week, and I try this before I get on plane. This thing minimised the spot on my face just in 1 flight (9 hours), and I think it's amazing. The Origins Spot Treatment would be one of my most effective skincare I've ever tried and it last so long as you only need just a lil touch.

My last skincare of the year is the Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturising lotion. I've been using the Gel formula for so long without thinking about trying the lotion one. After I accidentally bought the wrong formula, I decided to give it a try and I found that it works so well with my dry skin even in hot weather. I can feel that my makeup applied so smoothly on this moisturiser without feeling heavy. If you are fan of Clinique moisturiser, give this one a try and you'll love it.

My last favourite that I just discover is the Soap and Glory Breakfast Scrub, which I completely fell in love with. After I ran out of my &other stories scrub, I pick up this one randomly as I heard so many people talk about it. At first, I don't like the smell from the jar that much as I think it's too strong, but when I try, it leaves such a nice smell on my skin and also exfoliate the dry skin that I'm struggling with right now.

There's the end of the last blog post of 2016, I hope you had a really nice and festive christmas and Happy new year to ya all!

If said that flowers that bloom only once in a hundred year. Why should there not be some that bloom once in a thounsane year. We never know about them because once in thousand year just happened today.

Right under this sky, we are lucky enough to share the lifetime we get...

My life is not a fairy tales that the prince and princess get to love each other in the end.
My hope is not fulfilled.

I try to think everyday that how great it's that I get to know you in person even though I think that I will never get a chance to meet you. It's a huge lesson that no matter how hard you try, if it is not the right one, it is not.

Thank you that you interested in the same hobby as mine so we get to talk.
Thank you that you come to say hi to me that day.
Thank you for making my 12th of December special.
Thank you for making me dare to do something again.
Thank you for talking to me for a period of time.
Thank you for your smile.
Thank you for calling.

And thank you that we know each other.

Rosie will now go offline for a while....

NYX Soft Matte Lip CreamNYX

I can feel that right now about 80% of girl get obsessed with the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream. I see it everywhere no matter on Youtube or Blogs. 

The first colour I picked up is Stockholm as I was going to Stockholm in Summer 2016, which is quite random to pick colour of the city you're going. However, I'd say that I'm impressed with the colour and it goes with my skin colour so well. It's a bit pinky but still a nude colour. The formula for this one is actually better than I think it was gonna be as this last after I eat and also don't make my lip dry. 

For my second colour, which is so hard to get my hand on, is London. This is more of a brown nude colour. It's almost inseparable if you look from the tubes but it's actually quite different. I would say that I prefer the Stockholm one as this one is too nude for me. And I don't know that it's just me to this one doesn't last as long as Stockholm. It is rubbed ff so easily and come off after I just drink coffee. I think it might be because of the formula of different colours. 

(The left one is London and another one is Stockholm)

Overall, I love Stockholm more than London but those two colour is quite impressive, so I'd recommend you try this if you're looking for a affordable version of matte lip cream.

Have you ever try this Matte lip cream?

Hair Cair Routine : Coloured Hair Update!

After the second time chopping and colouring my hair, I've changed my hair care routine a bit so that it suit my short and dry hair. I found that the first week after I changed my hair colour, my hair get so dry that I think it's not gonna be normal again. But after a few week using those stuff, it come back to normal condition again thankfully. 

The first step I do when I wash my hair is put the conditioner on wet hair. I usually use the Loreal EverPure Sulfate-free conditioner as my main one. This one make my hair so soft and don't wash out the colour I've done, so good one.

Once a week, I'll use the Lee Stafford Hair Growth Treatment that I heard from one if the Gabby (Velvetgh0st) vlog. I'd say that I see the result of it after using 2 pot of this treatment. My hair grows for about 1.5 inches in one month, which is quite impressive!

After leaving conditioner on my hair for a while, I'll wash it off with shampoo which I'm switching between the Loreal EverPure Sulfate-free moisture shampoo and the Loreal Oleo Therapy oil infused shampoo. I feel like the oil-infused make my hair heavy which I don't like but sometime my hair need a lil of treatment.

For styling, some day I just put an oil a Loreal Extraordinary oil on and leave it that way, or someday I use the Schwarzkopf Daily oil elixir depends on what I'm fancy. For me, those two are not that different but the Schwarzkopf one I picked up in Sweden because I forgot to bring the Loreal one with me.

And for dry shampoo, I used the Lee Stafford original dry shampoo for volume not because I don't wash my hair. To be honest, I love to wash my hair everyday because the pollution in Bangkok is so bad and also because of the hot and sweaty weather.

That's all I used for the past few months, and btw, this is not sponsored by Loreal and Lee Stafford, I just use it because it works with my hair. 

Do you have any hair care favourite that I should try?
