Topshop Tights and the Balm

by Roxanne C.

I’ve got a couple of things I’d like to share. First off, I just bought a new pair of tights from Topshop! It’s really pretty and to be honest, I only fell in love with it after chancing upon it on their website. I’m planning to wear this to the casting tomorrow!

Topshop Bow and Seam Back Tights

I figured that if there’s a chance I might end up on TV, I might as well make myself all accessorised up. I’m still deciding between the fake lashes and nicely shadowed eyes. Which shall I pick!!!

I’ve also finally managed to get dark green eyeshadow in the exact kind of darkness that I’ve been looking for! Actually I came across this brand by chance. I was at Sasa at Wisma yesterday and the sales assistant recommended me this brand: the Balm.

It’s a new brand from the states and currently, they are having a promotion. Two eyeshadow colours for $35 whereas if you only get one, it is at the normal price of $24.90. I got Jealous Jordana (out of stock now at Wisma. I got mine at J8) while a friend of mine got Caught in the Act Courtney.

Cute packaging for their Shady Lady Eyeshadow range

As you can see, the green is just awesome. There’s nothing sweet and cutesy about dark colours. Dark colours are all about being sexy and that’s why I like the Balm. It’s all about embracing the female in us all! Their products have pretty names like “Mary-Lou Manizer aka ‘the Luminizer’ (luminiser),” “Pick-up Liners (eye liners),” “Sexy Mama (anti-shine translucent powder)” and “Cabana Boy (shadow/blush all-in-one).” Even the pictures on their packaging are cute!

It seems like a Benefit spin-off but with much reasonable prices. It has sort of a retro-American – Hollywood glamour – exotic Caribbean feel to it. I will be back for more yummys from the Balm!
