So I went shopping... again... le sigh... oh dear... I feel terrible! I should stop! :P ANYWHOOOOO I bought:
  • Christian Dior Lip Maximizer - Collagen Activ - I TOTALLY LOVE THIS THING! Mecca, the cosmetic store that I go to here in Perth don't sell Lip Venom anymore so I've been looking for a substitute and I totally think that this does the trick!
  • Christian Dior Addict High Shine - #22 Casual Beige - This is a so-so purchase... I can live without it... but still really pretty!
  • MAC Fluidline - Blitz & Glitz - I LOVE IT!!! Thank you to all who recommended this to me! I will purchase the blacktrack after I finish with this one though :)
  • MAC Brush - #210
  • MAC Lipglass
  • MAC e/s - Black Tied -I love I love I LOVE! Carbon is the next purchase for me!

Finishing up assignments

Hey ladies! Sorry for the lack of updates, I've had my ass jam packed with assignments this week and a bagajillion birthdays to go to! I will be updating very soon, probably on Sunday or something as it is my sister's birthday party tomorrow, which I'm very much looking forward to!

"What's in your purse?"

I've been reading around all the lovely make up/beauty bloggers around and I saw that they were doing the "What's in your purse?" posts! So I decided to do one myself (Plus, the gorgeous Kimberley Tia encouraged me too :P)!

So this is my bag... It's a Gucci... I don't even know what it's called.. I got it a few years ago when I went to Indonesia and had to stop over at the Singapore airport with my sister. We looked around and fell in love with this bag!

So.... what's in my purse? *Drum roll* we have....
  • My lovely Sidekick - or rather a HIPTOP here, how totally ugly is that name??! URGH!
  • You can barely see it but my Yves Saint Laurent Touche' Eclat - No. 2
  • Eye drops - all you contact wearers out there, I know you have this in your bag!
  • My car keys
  • My wallet - it looks like a guys wallet, but it's actually a unisex Louis Vuitton Epi Leather which my mom gave to me
  • A travel size Kleenex - it is spring time here and it is wreaking havoc with my hayfever, I sneeze continuously all day and feel like killing myself sometimes lol How can so much snot come out of someone so short! lol
  • Nars Orgasm
  • L'occitane Cherry Blossom lipgloss
  • Hair tie
  • Clean & Clear oil control sheets
  • My beloved pink iPod that my bf gave to me for valentine's day this year
  • Chanel eyeshadow - 47 ebony
  • Extra chewing gum
  • Garage door button
  • L'occitane Cherry Blossom hand cream
  • Aqium! I love that shit - I am a total germaphobe so I carry this stuff around with me EVERYWHERE!
There are a few items missing, like my Chanel eyeliner and more lipglosses but this is just what's in my purse at the moment :) Hope you've enjoyed the post ladies! I really should start doing more make up looks... but my creativity is lacking these days, will try very hard though! Til next time... adios!

So... I've decided not to do the EOTD with the bronze look again, because looking at the photos... it looks SOOOOOO similar to the previous one... I just used different products haha :P I did use the photo to be my profile photo though and I'll post it at the bottom of this post.

Okay, so I need your help ladies! I am looking for a black eyeliner! Preferably liquid or gel, I'm not really into pencil unless it's to line your waterline with.... All the eyeliners I've tried so far has been just OKAY, it's never AWESOME or a WON'T BUY ANOTHER BRAND experience for me. Problem is, it always fades to a grey really quickly on my eyelids for some reason, no matter how I've primed or how many times I've re-applied, it will always just fade to grey really easily! So now I'm going to ask you ladies to give me some suggestions as to which eyeliner you think ROCKS YOUR JOCKS! I don't really care whether you've just heard about which eyeliner is good or if it's from personal experience.... just post up a comment because I need ideas fast! This problem is pissing me off big time! :P

Thank you ever so much in advance ladies!

I went a little nuts at Mac again and bought some more stuff :) + Nars! The damage:
  • Mac e/s - Mythology
  • Mac e/s - Satin Taupe
  • Mac loose powder - NC30
  • Nars eyeshadow duo - Cordura
I LOVEEEEEEE my Nars duo, it's such a pretty bronzey shade. You can tell I like my neutrals and shimmers! Pigmentation wise, I actually like Nars better than Mac sometimes... I know I might get killed for this but oh well... I gotta stay true to my favourite! You can tell by the swatches below just how pigmented Nars eyeshadows are, it took a few layers of the Mac eyeshadow to bring out the colours, which I guess is good if you want a wash of colour but with the Nars one, it was just one swipe and it was that dark already! I do like the variety of colours that Mac offers though, lovely colours! :)

Just some pics where you can see the colours and swatches... Oh how I love Nars packaging!

I also bought me some summer clothes, as it is getting a little warmer here... okay... it's BOILING here :P So I got a pair of shorts and 2 tops. The shorts were French Kitty, the yellow top was from Country Road and the white T-shirt is Ben Sherman.Till next time!

P.S: I am planning to put up some new EOTD... I've just been a bit lazy to and plus I have this huge group assignment to finish by Monday... sigh! But I did get myself a job! :D I trial tomorrow! So excited!

New haircut!

Just got a new haircut today! And also bought some new make up :) But I'll post the make up pictures and swatches tomorrow :) Please excuse the run down, faded make up and my eye look extremely weird in the last picture!

Being silly

Just being silly with my ArcSoft Magic-i Visual Effects that came with my laptop while getting ready for the Stevie Wonder concert! :) In case you were wondering, I have the gold VAIO CR-Series. This is my baby, I never go anywhere without this thing... Filled with all my photos, work, and of course my internet... LOVES IT!

My first haul on blospot!

Sorry for not updating too often these days! Just had a personal problem/emergency that I had to deal with... :) I'm also going to the Stevie Wonder concert tonight with the boyfriend and I'm uber excited!!! I will post up photos and videos when I can because I can tell you right now that I will be snapping away like a photog!

So... for my first haul on here! I've been hearing so much about the Giorgio Armani Face Fabric that when the Armani stall opened up at my local shopping centre (yes, we are THAT late to JUST get an Armani stall open up :P), I HAD to go get it. I must say that it lived up to the expectations! I love it! It makes my skin so smooth! Just a warning though, you will have to have pretty clear skin to start off with if you want to use this, the coverage is minimal, but is the perfect everyday foundation for me!

I just recently purchased:

  • Giorgio Armani Face Fabric - Number 3
  • Mac Pigment - Copperbeam
  • Mac eyeshadow - Suite Array - Sweet Liaison
  • My first Mac pigment samples that I got on iOffer! I ordered 20 samples, and 7 freebies!
I LOVE LOVE LOVEEEEEEEEE my pigment samples, I will do swatches as soon as I have time to show you guys and maybe have you girlies help me to see whether they are real or not! Either way, I was pretty happy with them anyway :) I'm pretty so-so on the Sweet Liaison though... the lighter colour barely showed up (which you can see on my swatches, and I tried to pack on the colour too!) and the darker colour is okay I guess... Definitely not a MUST-HAVE.

These are just swatches of the Copperbeam and the Sweet Liaison duo:

Oh my gosh, so living in Australia is DRIVING ME CRAZY! I can't get all the awesome, experimental stuff that girls in America gets to try! I mean, I know I can sometimes order stuff online but the shipping cost is more than the actual item itself! lol Also, make up here cost a fortune! I went on the NARS website and saw that the cream eyeshadow are like $21, I buy them here for like $40 something, same with the duo eyeshadow! It's $32 on the website and I pay $74! Ridiculous huh...? :( This is just a list of stuff that I've been DYING to try since starting to read make up blogs :)
  • Laneige strawberry yoghurt peeling gel
  • Lyna Pearl face cream!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Ardell fashion lashes #110
  • Coastal Scents 88 shimmer palettes
  • Those fake eyelash clip thing that helps you put on the fake eyelashes cause I am completely hopeless at it!
  • MANDOM Cleansing Express Cleansing Lotion Sebum
  • NYX make up
  • MAC PRO make up (we do have MAC here, but only make up stalls... not MAC PRO stores)
  • Givenchy Phenomen'Eyes mascara
  • L'oreal HIP make up
  • Soothing Calamine Facial Bar
  • Everyday Minerals or Bare Escentuals
  • a bunch of other goodies that aren't available in this silly little remote island of Australia! *FRUSTRATED!*
Sigh... you girls are so lucky! I would totally live in Sephora if we had one here in Perth, Australia! But I guess, I should thank my lucky stars because my wallet would be empty permanently too! :P

Just finishing off with a picture of me and my boy a few days ago before dinner at Yu.

Disney themed 20th

So, on the weekend I attended my friend's 20th birthday party, themed evil/slutty Disney characters. Unfortunately I didn't have time to hire a costume out cause I've been busy with my family from Indonesia coming here for the week, but I did manage to draw a few whiskers and a cute little nose on me 5 minutes before walking into the party, and I became my friend's Cheshire cat! :P
