Pesto Garlic Shrimps Quinoa Salad x LBootd x Kylie Cosmetics

#QOTD

Feeling so much better today. πŸ™…πŸ»πŸ€’

Rise & Shine!

So Mom called & said, "Settle your own breakfast!"

Woke up rather early today. Decided to try to prepare quinoa for the first time. Turns out it was rather straightforward.

"1 cup quinoa, 2 cups water."

I did a handful of quinoa & just x2 the liquid. But I used water + chicken stock in equal portion, for taste.

Bring it to a light boil (lid on), when it's almost dry, turn off the fire & let it steam in its residual heat.

Fluff the quinoa! πŸ™†πŸ»πŸ˜Š

For protein I did Pesto Garlic Shrimps. Simply, de-shell shrimps, remove the icky bits. 1 teaspoon pesto sauce + 1 clove minced garlic, wrapped into a little parcel with cooking sheet, air-fry.

I also boiled an egg.

Fibre choices were blanched broccoli & fresh cherry tomatoes.

3 mini mozzarella balls cos I was feeling naughty.

Chopped cashews for texture.

Finished with coarsely ground black pepper.

Yesterday's oh-oh-tee-dee! πŸŽ‰

That was before the flu hit me πŸ’₯

I'm honestly so glad to be feeling a ton better now, even though the skin around my nose is so so sore from the tissues.

In such a good & productive mood! πŸ™†πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»

Top & Skirt πŸ‘—: #LoveBonito #LBootd

Aiyoh. The photo quality on Dayre is so -.-

But I really love this top! The blue & yellow print is too pretty and blue matches my cool skin tone. The material is super duper comfy & perfect for sunny SG. But most importantly, this cut is my all time favourite! It emphasises the shoulders / collarbones & flatters so many types of body frames! 😍

Kylie Cosmetics

I'm in love!!! 😍 A while back I went a lil cray when Kylie launched her birthday collection. So much so I carted all the shades I coveted from her classic range as well 😱

One pair of lips, & a gazillion too many lip products. πŸ’‹

In clockwise direction:
So Cute | Gloss
Candy K | Lip Kit
Posie K | Lip Kit
Kourt K | Lip Kit
Mary Jo K | Lip Kit
Koko K | Lip Kit

Mary Jo K I actually purchased separately cos the Lip Kit was OOS that day.

Swatches! 😍😍😍

So Cute | Candy K | Koko K | Posie K | Kourt K | Mary Jo K

The lip liners were a perfect match for the liquid lipsticks. There were so creamy & easy to apply.

The lip gloss, So Cute, is actually a flattering shade of nude for me. There's a peachy undertone & it's not too brownish / dull. Meaning, I-still-look-alive kinda nude.

This is my take on the 3 very similar shades; Candy K, Koko K, Posie K.

First off, they will oxidise & turn a shade darker, that's one thing to note.

~ Candy K πŸ‘†πŸ»πŸ‘†πŸ»πŸ‘†πŸ» is a hot fav among peeps on the Internet, beauty gurus, instagrammers, bloggers, youtubers. It's also one that's flattering for both dark & light skinned girls. This will vary from brownish to pinkish depending on skin color. On me, it does lean towards the brownish tone, more so after it oxidises.

It does have an earthy nude vibe on me. I quite like it but it's not my every day look.

~ Koko K was one that did not stand out initially but as you can see from the swatches, on me it does have a pinkish nude tone.

Pink, is so my color.

So just based off the swatches, I'd say Koko K is my every day nude shade. The pink brings a bit of life to my complexion, & I'm rather confident Koko K is one I'll enjoy.

~ Posie K was a shade I was immd drawn towards when I was browsing reviews etc online. For the longest time cos it looked the pinkest, & being a newbie to liquid lipsticks I thought it was a safe option.

Most of the shades turned out darker than expected, and Posie K was more mauve-y nude irl. It's pretty but in comparison to Koko K I think the latter brightens up the face more.

But Posie K will be my pick for lunch / dinner events cos it does give that bit of pop of color more intentionally.

~ Mary Jo K is that shade of red that will match almost any skin tone.

I could not pass up on this.

So here's my 2nd ✌🏻️ red in my entire lipstick collection. I know this will come in handy one day.

Wedding dinner? D&D? Musical date perhaps?

Red is such an iconic lip color. πŸ’‹

Intended to lip-swatch all the colors but seriously though, the formula is so durable I kinda had trouble removing it / my lips turned red from the rubbing. πŸ˜… It's kiss-proof, but I don't think it's smudge-proof. So I won't recommend rubbing on it. An oil based remover should work just fine.

Consistency I had no trouble with especially for Γ© nudes. In fact I think application was easy peasy. Might be the brush applicator too, no complain here. Practice does makes perfect, & line your lips!

Scent. I'm not the biggest fan. Some reviews I read / watched seemed to suggest different shades had different scent. Smelled the same to me ley. Cherry-sugar-sweet will be my choice of description. That smell did not wow me but it was.. Alright ~

All in all, I love them so so much!!! Now to go hunt down a lip product storage rack / system!
😁😁😁

Overflowing very quickly! 🀐
