Yonique 3D Mascara and Splash Liquid Lipstick

with No Comments

I had never seen any tutorials and hadn’t heard of Younique at all until my best friend from Primary school contacted me to do a review on some products she would send me. Nikki, who sent me the products is a representative of the brand, was really eager for me to try out their 3D Fibre Lash Mascara and one of their Splash lipsticks in the shade Stoic.

3D FIBRE LASH MASCARA
I have to say when I opened the packaging and pulled out the 2 lubes of mascara for the pouch I was confused for a moment. I had heard nothing about the brand until Nikki had told me about them and I decided not to do any research on the products and just wait till i received them. In all honesty I thought the brush from one of the wands had been put through a blender and stuffed inside the tube. There were loose black fibres all over the wand I thought I have to tell her and get another set because i had obviously got a defect item. But I was wrong, these were just the little fibres that sat in the tube that promised to thicken and lengthen your lashes to your hearts desire and it works wonders.
My lashes were fuller and thicker and didn’t get clumpy. You can chose how many times you go back and forth with the gel and fibres to elongate and thicken.
I am so happy with the mascara, and i highly recommend it especially for those who have light to blonde lashes that just need a little extra help without having to wear falsies or get extensions.

SPLASH LIQUID LIPSTICK (STOIC)
The beauty world has been inundated by the liquid lipstick trend with new formulas and shades being released from almost every brand in the business. I’ve tried a few liquid lipsticks from Jeffree Star to Kat Von D and while I don’t have any complaints about either of these brands, the Younique liquid lipstick takes the cake. The consistency is so mousy and glides on your lips with ease.While the Jeffree Star and Kat Von D lipsticks dry down the Younique formula doesn’t totally dry down but gives the illusion of a matte/ dry lipstick. I have to say this is my favourite lipstick i’ve ever owned, i’ve never been a fan of glossy or sticky lipsticks and the Splash is neither of those. Not the mention it lasts for hours and the colour is so beautiful. I think the photos and video says it all!

Pomfret Slouch Bag by Louella Odié

Petra Greening Louella Odie Pomfret Bag1

A typhoon has just passed us and temperatures are reaching 36c (oh my god) an obvious sign that our Hong Kong summer is officially here and its time to bust out the summer trends and threads which means crochets, denim, florals, crop tops, maxi dresses and paisley prints.

I’m not the biggest fan of jewellery but when it comes to accessories, bags and sunglasses are the pieces that bring an summer outfit together. So when I received this chic canvas Pomfret Slouch Pouch by Hong Kong brand Louella Odié, I was stoked! The front of the bag has a beautifully embroidered Pomfret, a fish which is commonly found in Hong Kong waters and enjoyed by foodies all across Asia.
The bag features a detachable strap so you can use it as a clutch or a shoulder bag. Its a great beach bag and an even better bag for holiday ventures and day outings. I personally like to use it as a clutch or with the straps attached to one end as i’m not so into the classic noughties shoulder bag but its pretty sweet to have 3 options!
I absolutely adore this bag, the fabric and colours scream summer and the embroidery is top quality. It’s understated due to its canvas brown fabric and subtle pops of threaded colour but this allows you to play with colour and prints in your outfit and shoes.

Living 47 seconds walk from Shek O beach is truly magical as I’ve always felt a connection to the ocean so I love celebrating brands that use nature as their inspiration for their products. Louella Odié draw inspiration from the designer duo’s childhood love of Island exploration, coastal living, embracing the shorelines of Hong Kong and the UK. Their stories of foreign seashores and familiar beaches can be seen in their designs from native fish to historic landmarks, Louella Odié embrace all things Hong Kong and translate it flawlessly into wearable art.

Thank you Lauren, I adore it and thank you to your mum!

Esscentric

with No Comments

IMG_8984 I first met Jodie, founder of Esscentric when we were both doing a shoot with photographer Pui Pui To. When I first saw her, I was drawn to her long gold chain that stood out from her chic all black outfit. Attached to this chain was a leather cylinder pouch with the words Esscentric embossed on the outside. I guessed that it might be a roll on perfume as I had one a few years ago from Avon which had a similar pouch but not nearly as stylish and sophisticated as Jodie’s.
Once we had wrapped up the quick shoot we sat down at Teakha on Po Tuck Street to have a quick chat about Jodie’s scent brand Esscentric..

How did you come up with Esscentric and why?
J: i love beautiful scents and I love to collect. I am always looking for different perfumes and am very passionate on scents.  For me scent is like art, I can’t live without it in my life. At the moment I’m studying aromatherapy, and I want to show people that natural essential oil are super amazing, they are soulful, beautiful and functional.  

I was thinking to myself, why people haven’t made them into more of a cool lifestyle item instead of just for holistic use?  Hence, i got an idea to use them (essential oil – the most natural material) to create my perfume line.   I love fashion and scents, so why not combine them together.  I would like to bring essential oil into lifestyle, in a unique and fashionable way and educate people so they can understand how to use the products. Thats why Esscentric’s packaging is a fashion accessory, a wearable chain necklace with a leather case.  I think this is cool idea as people can wear their perfume anywhere, its functional and beautiful.

How many scents do you have?
J: From my first collection, there have 6 scents.

Which one is your favourite?
J: My fav one is Jassom!! It’s a very sensual scent.  Also i love to mix it with Chamuse, it creates more of a mysterious scent.

What is the sexiest scent for a man?
J: for me there is no specific scent, I think what is most important is the person who is using the scent matches it with their personality.  But I think a woody, musky based scent with fresh green undertones is sexy for a man.

What is the sexiest scent for a woman?
J: same answer as above, different women are a sexy in different ways!  But I would say, personally, a sexy scent for a woman is an amber woody scent with floral undertones, also with a bit of spices to bring out a sensuous and exotic feeling.

Do you have any new projects for 2016?
J: Yes, in Spring we will launch a home scent collection. Stay tuned!

Yeah yeah, I know i’m about a month late with this but here are the photos of the Submarine boat party hosted by PUSH and Cliché with special guest Animal Trainer.
The boat was at full capacity or maybe a little over (don’t tell le captain) but there was nothing but good vibes, laughs boogieing and praise for the organizers for holding such a bomb ass party! Drinks were flowing (with loads left to spare) and tunes were banging all day and night with the after party at Social Room that went till late…. Wicked party and collaboration, till next year….

Brighton, UK

DCIM100GOPROG1000990.

Brighton was a blast as usual, fabulous local food, wicked shopping and a really chill vibe. London was pretty busy for us as we wanted to get loads done (which we did, bosh). So Brighton was our chill out stop before the hectic adventures we were about to embark on in Barcelona. Last year we missed Gentlemen’s Dub Club at Outlook in Croatia and during cheeky walk through the lanes we spotted a flyer that said they were playing that night at Concorde2! Result! We went and it was brilliant, sound was great and the energy was even better.
The laid back attitude and the funky antique and clothing shops and Chippy’s right on the beach make it my favourite place in the UK. I was so stoked to see family while I was in the UK, I was sooo good to be back.
