Mini mini haul + Review on the Dear Darling Tint

so, as I have said in my last post ,I would go back to etude and buy their Dear Darling Tint. And I did, like two days after that. {happy girl}  im really glad that I bought it. because I really like it. it is the CHEAPEST (if not ,then it is one of the cheapest) tint in the store.

Dear Darling Tint
2014-06-21 22.17.16
#02 Real Red

So, the Dear Darling Tint is a tint from etude house. it is a water jelly textured tint so it is moisturizing and gives a glossy look if you don’t wipe the excess product off. It is made to stain your lips, but I think it works as a cheek stain too.

[ D E T A I L S ] 

[ P R I C E ] this tint is retailed at S$8.90 . Reasonable price ay? the other tints in etude house were S$9.90 (kissful tint chou), S$12.90-S$15.90 (rosy tint lips, fresh cherry tint, etude lips-fit) [ I don’t quite remember the exact ones, and im not very sure of the prices, but I can say that im pretty sure for the kissful tint chou one) so I guess it is an affordable tint.

[ V A R I E T Y ] the one I have here is the one in #2 Real Red. it also has #1 Berry Red, #3 Orange Red, #4 Vampire Red.

Clean wand 😀 (ok this a quite low quality picture :/ sowwie ><)

[P A C K A G I N G ] Very classy and elegant.Like how a princess would like her makeup to look like . Hahaha jokes aside. it is a typical etude house packaging , very sweet and girly. it also has a stopper at the mouth of the bottle so you wont get the product on the wand and waste it.

the applicator is really precise and I can have pretty good control of the product.

precise tip.

the smell of the tint is like a grape candy(?) I cant seem to remember what candy it smells like, I only can say it is really sweet.

[ H O W  I  F E E L  A B O U T  I T ]
I mean it is nice, moisturizing, long-lasting if you are not always eating, ( cause, I have tried to make a  first impression of it at home, but like after a few chips and a cup of sweet drink it faded a bit, and then more water and more noms, it’s all gone 😦  But also I had a gradient lip so, it might be because there wasnt a load of product of my lips. And probably because im a noob at makeup and this is my first time trying a tint.)

[ S W A T C H ]  The water , jelly texture

[ S W A T C H ] after dapping the excess with a tissue
2014-06-21 20.39.46
[ S W A T C H ] i put a decent amount of tint and left it there for a few minutes and wiped of the excess with tissue. Look at the one on top. Wow! legit stain!

[ S W A T C H ] swipey test ,heheh Hmm seems like no change 🙂
[ H O W  T O  S T Y L E  I T ] 
A gradient lip, like what it is made for. Or a full red lip.
I personally don’t wear any eye makeup ( one, I have monolids 😦 two, I wear specs 😦 three, im simply a noob at makeup and I don’t know how to deal with monolids )
but  I guess if you are going for the gradient lip, it would be the good ol’ cute puppy look, and the full red lip, you could go with your everyday eye makeup and make you look damn sexy …hmm..

So, yeah.. this concludes my review. And they are all based on my own experience. so… hmmm…i bet you find it boring.but congrats on making it till the end 😀  Really sorry for the background of the pictures cause I was lazy to take the white backdrop . >< kbye!

Just because of the free gift , my mum had to buy the Lip and Eye Remover and the green tea nose pack (which i forgot to take pic ><) should have gotten the lip tint, but its fine ,my mum said that we have way too much lip products [but how can one have too much lip products] and i agree. meh its fine i will buy it the next time i drop by.

So the other day i was at vivo city and i went to their etude house .That was my first time buying something in etude house.

Play Nail Smoothing Base Coat

I always have mixed feelings about going into etude house, i always hate how open the Tampines 1 outlet was, and also i would not buy anything whenever i head in because it is awkward for me to walk out empty handed. but now my mum actually gives me permission to buy anything from etude house that i find good, then im not afraid to head in to buy the lip product ( I just realised im a lip product hoarder, but im only a makeup junkie :/ )

okay, Imma head to bed now.. peww what a long post.. too me so long to upload those pics …oh and congrats for making it till the end.

anyway good night world. i will check back for the review for some of the products seen above and also some that i bought recently.. hehe im like going for a gss spree~

Love, thazelina xo


Craft Update : Book Binding


Hi, im back. Again. For one of the longest time im back updating.

Those books( I still have oe more but it is my notebook for school and it does not have the prettiest outer cover so yeah.. im not gonna show) you see above are binded before 2014, around the end of the year of 2013 when I  have loads of time at home. I was gonna make my own planner ( and I did) Hoots! But these are not the planner, they are some notebooks ( lines and blank ones) I made with a tutorial on YouTube. Sea Lemon is the BEST at book binding. i really love her and her videos ,she is so cute ><

ok we can clearly see that i still have one book left that do not have the Coptic stitch. im just pure lazy..


The first book i binded was the big one (A6). It is made with A4 plain paper. Covered with my precious washi tape collection. The cover is made with a cereal box. Stitched with coptic stitch. Added with my touch of a simple sticker of my own.

/hides at a corner/ the binding ,oh god. not so good But hey, look at those pandas dancing ^-^
/still hiding at the corner/ nope…its still bad…
handmade stickers with stamps ^-^ p.s. i made the cat one /proud/ nah. it’s badly crafted. But its my first stamp, so whatevs.


made with pretty much the same things, the only thing different is that this is recycled with an old A5 exercise book I had, so it has lines and its pretty much like a square, that is around 8-9 cm. And this cover is pretty artsy

this stitching is worst than before what the hell is wrong with my brain?
but look at the back, it’s so pretty

043same as the one before, but this cover is of the cutesy side. And i tied a string there.

At least this stiching is better looking.
to be completed.

so that wraps up my book binding craft update..
