Hair, Gloss and Food

Haha, my titles are so uncreative.
My latest addition to my lippy collection. I purchased this Maquillage Perfect Gloss in PK353 while in Tokyo. PK353 is the gloss that's on the model that's holding the coffee cup, I can't remember the name. This came out in July and it's supposed to be part of the Maquillage x Alexander Wang collection.
The picture didn't come out quite the way I wanted. It's a bit more coral than pink. The gloss has fine golden shimmers which is uber pretty.
I find it a bit sticky, but it's long lasting. I do have a rant though, even when I wipe the gloss off, my lips still feel a bit sticky.
The applicator is a flat spatula with fuzzyness on both sides. I really like this applicator since it's easier to apply evenly than then doe foot imo.

My attempt at super voluming my hair.

I applied the Marc Anthony hair thickener to damp hair then blow dry (the hair dryer I have is so crappy, it's not hot enough bah!). Then I put 1.5inch curlers, 1 on my bangs, 1 on both sides and 2 at the back then sprayed the Lucidol curling water and put heat on it.
After doing my makeup, I take out the curlers then curl the ends of my hair inward and outwards with a large barrel iron. Scrunched up my hair with some Liese Designing Jelly in Nuance Wave and used Lucidol Designing Pot in Smash Fixer near my roots. Finish off with Osis hair spray.
Whew! So many things just for my hair, I wish it wasn't so flat. The Liese Designing Jelly was advertised in the Vivi magazines with Chikako (spelling?). It's a very runny gel like product. It gives my curls enough hold to last the whole day and just one pump is enough for all my hair. You can get it on Ichibankao.com If you download the Nuance Wave demo vid here, you can see in the video that pieces hair is supposed to stay if you just push it up a bit, and I can confirm that it doesn't do that, at least not with my hair.
Next time, I'm going to try adding the Osis dusting powder in hopes for more volume.

Did you know I've never made an omlette in my life, until yesterday? Haha..I never thought I could do it, but I didn't want the typical scrambled eggs. I made mine with sauteed mushrooms, cheddar and some proscuitto. Mmm...

I love breakfast foods. It's been a while since I've been to Cora's for their breakfasts. It closes at 3pm and there's only 2 locations that I know of in Toronto. Omg, it's so freaking good, but expensive.

Good job with the hair millie. My hair is flat too, eventhough my hair is thick but the strands are heavy and that's why my hair looks flat -.- I wish I hve your patience in dealing with hair. I usually just tie it into a bun or just leave it..and for the past 2 years I've been getting a perm so it helps in the volume department lolz but gotta think of something new for a change ;p

Cute gloss!

And LOL. I've never made an omelette either... or attempted one. Might try when SO gets back this weekend though hehe. He doesn't make omelettes either - usually just goes for fritatta, which is way easier. Eggs benedict are my fav though, your pic is amazing!

Woohoo Maquillage lippie!! The SA in the duty free in Japan forced me to try it.. I'm glad because I got a free mini lip brush haha! :)
The lip gloss was nice but kinda sticky.. but lasted a pretty long time. Maybe like and hour and half?? Idk for me that's pretty long.
And nice hair!

sad that your lips are still sticky after taking the gloss off.. i hate it when that happens :(

Okay...I'm hungry for breakfast now!! Mmm food looks so yummy.

Aww I'm with you on hair, mine is flat and has all sorts of issues that make it not look perfect, hmph! I like how your volume came out though! I think I'm too lazy to do what you did. =P

The gloss looks pretty even though it looks more coral than pink, too bad for the sticky feel though. =\
