Updates

I'm sorry about abandoning my blog lately. I've just been so lazy. And my work has been draining me out a lot because a few of my coworkers are on their vacations so I've been given a lot more hours than usual. Let's start with the first day of July: Canada Day.



I guess it's become a tradition for us to go to this every Canada Day. The City Hall was under renovation so Square One was cool enough to lend their rooftops. Last year's fireworks were definitely better though. What a waste of apparently about 20 million CAD. So this is how they spend our tax money haha.

Today was so hot out and Nerissa and Alyssa came over. The plan was to make cheesecake at my house but having used all my baking ingredients, they would have had to spend $20 for the ingredients so they ended up buying a box of pre-made cheesecake. It was okay but I still prefer homemade ones because I know what I put in. This is us walking to the bus stop so we can go to Bubble Republic to buy bubble tea (except Nerissa who went home).

And I shall leave you all with a FOTD featuring two different lips because I couldn't decide which one lol.

closeup:

What do I think of this lipstain? It's my first lipstain that I've tried so I can't really compare to other ones. But it's really not drying like some lipstains that I've read reviews of. This doesn't have a balm included like the other long lasting colour things Maybelline or Covergirl has. The only thing is that I picked up this colour because of how amazing it looks on the model in the promo image. This is a lot redder than pink, more like a raspberry pink-red. The closeup looks pinker because of the flash but the full face is more accurate of the colour in real life. I don't think the lasting power is that good for a stain because I was expecting 4-5 hours. Although, the times I've worn it, I was also eating. But I still think the colour fades away pretty fast but I actually do like it overall, but I don't wanna try the other colours because this is one of their lightest shades. Imagine how dark the other ones would be!
