Artistry LED Lip Gloss Review

ARTISTRY LED LIP-GLOSS The only series of lipgloss that can ever have me sitting on the edge while waiting for it to finally launch in Singapore. I AM SO EXCITED THAT I GOT ALL 5 COLORS. (Okay now give me a minute to recompose myself a little before I go on..) So you girls probably know that I have slowly switched my entire skincare + makeup products over to Artistry over the last 1-2 years - they are sooo good because all my little pimples on my face that I can never get rid off in the past (you know, from all the countless nights of staying up to mug for exams, poor sleep and diet etc,) have all cleared up. That's why I'm switch my products over to the brand Artistry ever since.

But that's not the main point of this post. The main point is this series of LED lipglosses. What happened was that I have actually chanced upon them while surfing youtube + watching Miss America's show some time ago, and the only place I could find these LED lipglosses were in United States. (well actually they were launched in many countries already but the only place I could find with international shipping was US)

So obviously, the overly infatuated me placed an order to ship them over to Singapore. I waited eagerly for two days before receiving news that it couldn't be shipped all because it contains battery. (Now, please hear the sound of my devastated heart breaking into a million pieces.) I was so upset - it's a girly thing so guys please try to understand.

Few months down the road, I eventually got to hear the news that Artistry is launching them in Singapore this month and I WAS SUPER EXCITED! Like mega duper excited about it. The only thing I'm sad about is because they are going to be limited edition. Once it's sold out in Singapore it will no longer be available. (what if I finished mine??)

So you girls are probably thinking what's so special about it. I mean, JUST LOOK AT THE PICTURE ABOVE. Where else can you find a lipgloss that lights up when you apply... (how cool that will be to apply it in the cab.. in the pub.. in the movie theatre.. in dim places..)

(okay, I know it's a novelty thingy but I just can't help it ok...)

Plus it comes with a mirror on it (plus point again) so I wouldn't even need to fumble for a mirror from the assortment of things that's always in my handbag. 

The minute I got them on my hands I knew I have to blog about them.. because good things (not to mention limited-edition) are always worth a review and a share.

The color that I'm applying above is Citrus color. Among my 5 lipglosses, I played with 3 of them first to create different looks and here's how pretty they look like when applied:

My favourite one of the lot has still be the cherry red color. In my opinion red lips can be a little tricky to pull them off at times - some colors may be too dark, too intense, or overly striking - and we need to balance the eye makeup to perfect the look. But this cherry red color was just right! Bright enough without being too intense, and I find this color quite versatile for both a day and a night look.

Across this range of Artistry LED lipglosses, it gives a cool minty sensation when applied (there's mint in its flavor), and its very moisturising with a super glossy finish - that I really love because glossy lips looks even more pretty especially at night.

I like it so much!

This range of Artistry LED Lipgloss are not found on the shelves, and are only available through Amway Independent Business Owners.

Former Tanjong Pagar Railway Station

GOOD FRIDAY Being a public holiday, Andrew and I decided to make a trip down to the former Tanjong Pagar railway station since it's open for public. (That's us being typical Singaporeans hahaha) But lo and behold it was filled with people and........ more people. Top that with the unbearable smothering heat and it was basically a human jam.. It was mega duper packed! But nonetheless still an interesting experience to explore the old train station. There's still hidden gems in Singapore afterall haha.

I've also started work this week! Everything is going great - even more awesome that work starts at 10am and ends at 5pm (I love you boss if you are seeing this hahah). Enjoying my work thus far and how there's more work life balance. IT IS REALLY NICE. I mean it. I don't have to squeeze with the morning crowd, and much less crowded trains in the evening rush hour.. I have more time for Amway appointments and my personal commitments that I'm just SO happy in a nutshell.

On a personal level, I am also venturing more into doing hair and makeup professionally after much encouragement and advice from many of my friends (you guys know who you are, thank you so much!). Also like to give my huge thanks and many kisses to Clara for passing me a hair dummy just so I can practice hair-styling on it. Everything is still in the planning phase for now but I am sooo excited! Blog more about it again in later stages.
