Welcome to my blog!

If you are in for an adventure paired with lengthy, quirky, brutal honest thoughts then you are in the right place.

My name is Arisa and was a cosplayer for 12 years in Malaysia before settling down in Kyoto, Japan. Exploring Japan full time has been a long time dream of mine, so let's explore it together!

NARS –cissist Summer For Me!

NARS!!!! Can never get enough of cosmetics because they are just so colourful! Ever since my last cosplay Elsa from Frozen that required me to utilized eye shadows it was a real challenge since I’ve never played much with it but I recall in my previous blogposts that I will “try” to experiment more with colours this year :-P

NARS isn’t a stranger brand to all the local make up enthusiast like some people I know *ahem, hints somebody* lol.
I honestly wouldn’t even bother picking up European brands thanks to their prices but can’t help drooling over them because of their textures and wide range of colours <3 as much as I only rely on Asian cosmetic brands but you can see me always walking in to Sephora to try out all the brands there  :-P
Perks of getting a full time job, a more stable income and also extra shopping MONEHHHHHH ohoho~

But ever since I read from local beauty blogs about NARS’s first ever official Malaysia store launch in Pavilion last year and so many people went head over heels for this brand. Started seeing so many good reviews (lots of colours obviously! Lol) which tempted me to head over to the store and give it a try myself. Guess what, I have so been converted into a “NARS –cissist” LOVER because of their pigmented and versatile colours.

Check out the few colours I’ve gotten to play with from their latest summer range.
Purposely chose “Malacca” because that’s my lovely hometown and the shade is just beautiful! Can’t even use a word to describe it because it looks shimmery dark silver mix with very dark green . I bet you guys are also confused eh?

Tropical Princess has 2 shimmery duo which really put me in the summer mood, light green and silvery lilac makes a very good combination for a playful beach look. Since I don’t live in a condominium anymore so too bad I can’t take a selfie by the pool L

A gel liner named Baalbek, did you know it's actually a town situated near the east side of the Litani River. At first i thought that word didn't make any sense because i know my geography fail lol. The colour is similar to bronze which i have been looking for ages :D
Great to know that i will be able to use it for my upcoming cosplays (something to do with Egypt and Mummies) ohoho~

Check out the few looks i managed to create only using NARS eyeshadow and gel liner, still need to get the hang of playing with colours, i am so jealous of those who can use eyeshadows daily T_T
Yea..i tried following all those online trends from Japanese and Korean magazines but i can never seem to pull it off, anyone wants to come over and play make up with me instead of barbie? :-p

This was my first attempt mashing all the colours up together creating a "gradient-like" (light to dark) effect.
And here is an upclose of it, some how reminds me of this local fruit (not a durian cuz i hate the smell lolol) - A Mangosteen.
Tropical fruit, in a tropical country 8D So i am guessing i am heading in the right direction with my colours. 

To achieve this look i am using Tropical Princess on my inner duct, followed by Malacca and finished off by using Balbeek as an eyeliner. 
For a refreshing light look to match my new hairstyle last weekend, i just used the Tropical Princess palette paired with pale pink lips. Have to admit that it looks pretty light but somewhat playful enough to use to pool parties.
Overall i personally think it's not too pricey as i expected for good quality cosmetics like these :)
Price ranges from RM90 to RM120 onwards.
