FOTD: Smokey Greens + MAC Lipstick - Cosmo + MY FIRST BLOGGER AWARD! :D

Wow, when I'm on a roll, I'm definitely on a roll... I was playing around with the new Henna eyeshadow I got, which I totally love by the way, and from the comments, I think it's all your ladies favourite as well! :D I was originally just going to do Henna with Carbon but then I decided to put Humid as well on the outer corners and it t
urned out okay!

  • NYX Colour Corrector Stick - Green
  • MAC Studio Fix Fluid - NC25
  • Precriptives Camouflage Cream - Yellow/Orange 04
  • MAC Select Loose Powder - NC30 (I need a new one, I know :P)
  • NYX Blush - Stone
  • Too Faced Shadow Insurace - I usually don't use a base because I find that my eyeshadows don't tend to crease anyway but I just played around today to see how it goes :)
  • MAC Eyeshadow - Espresso - eyebrows
  • MAC Eyeshadow - Henna - all over the lid + lower lash line
  • MAC Eyeshadow - Humid - outer corner
  • MAC Eyeshadow - Carbon - deepen the corner out a little.. okay.. a lot :P + outer lower lash line
  • MAC Eyeshadow - Brulee - highlight and I use this to tidy up around the shape of my eyeshadows
  • MAC Pigment - Gold Mode - inner tear ducts
  • MAC Eye Kohl - Smolder - lined and tightlined

  • Maybelline XXL Curl Power - only the primer side
  • Lancome Mascara - Virtuose
  • Silk Whitia Lip Balm

I forgot I got the MAC Lipstick in Snob! I picked this cause I heard that it was like one of those lipsticks that are like 'your lip colour but better' kind of thing and it definitely wasn't... it was so dark on me... it is a nice colour and maybe it's cause I am pretty pale, but yeah.. damnit! :(

I want to sorta become vegetarian because I feel really bad for all the animals I eat... seriously that sounds like a really dumb reason, but I do :| When I think of what the animals have to go through, I seriously just like feel sick.

3. I love cartoons! Simpsons, Futurama, Family Guy, Up, anything cartoon I'd love it :)

FOTD: Nyx Pearl in Mocha and Walnut + Dyeing hair + 1st Polyvore outfit!

I just went for something really simple today, it's summer here so I tend not to wear dark eyes much unless it's night time. I used the really inexpensive NYX Pearl Mania in Mocha and Walnut because I think those 2 colours look so gorgeous together and I love how finely milled the pigments are! I might like them more than MAC's pigments! :P

  • Studio Fix Fluid - NC25
  • Prescriptives Camouflage Cream - Yellow/Orange Medium 04
  • Palgantong Theatrical Powder - Clear
  • NYX blush - Stone
  • NYX Pearl Mania - Mocha - all over the lid
  • NYX Pearl Mania - Walnut - in the crease
  • MAC Eyeshadow - Espresso - eyebrows and to deepen the crease out
  • MAC Eyeshadow - Brulee - highlight brow bone and to just blend out the lines
  • MAC Eyeshadow - Ricepaper - highlight the inner corner of your eyes
  • MAC Eye Kohl - Smolder - line, tightline and upper lash line
  • MAC Eyeshadow - Carbon - to set the Smolder because they're so creamy they run easily in the heat
  • Maybelline XXL Curl Power - only the primer side
  • Maybelline The Colossal Volum Express - this is becoming a favourite mascara combo of mine, it lengthens my eyelashes sooooo much!
  • Chapstick

This photo is just going to be a before picture because tomorrow I am dyeing my hair with the Lóreal Superior Preference in UL 4 - Ultra Lightening Golden Brown. I am so excited!!! :D

I think I am addicted to Polyvore, I used to sorta do this before, save all the pictures of clothes that I like from (my LOVE) and then make outfits! I'm a pretty simple girl, I don't think I'm very stylish, I usually go for classics rather than trends. I just personally don't think I should chase around trends because I'm not the skinniest of girls, I may be Asian but I have pretty darn big boobs and a big ol' butt and I just don't think trends would suit me. This is an outfit I would wear though! :D

1. Jeans - Rose Jet Jeans
2. Top - Missoni
3. Shoes - Christian Louboutin - You can't beat the king!
4. Sunnies - Chanel
5. Bag - Chanel
6. Bracelet - Chanel

FOTD: Everyday Make Up Routine + New Laptop!

The lovely Ms. Sarah has inspired me to do a quick FOTD of what I basically wear everyday. I swear I've become lazier and lazier with time because I'm starting to grab less and less stuff when I just want to run out the door! :P It really is nothing special but I really like seeing what everyone looks like on a day to day basis! Again, seriously, my skin looks better here than in real life thanks to lighting :P Thanks for the inspiration Sarah! :)

  • Dr. G Gowoonsesang BB Cream
  • Studio Sculpt Concealer - NC30
  • MAC Sheer Loose Powder
  • NARS Blush - Orgasm
  • MAC Eyeshadow - Brulee - all over the lid and under my eyes
  • MAC Eyeshadow - Ricepaper - inner v corner
  • MAC Eyeshadow - Showstopper - eyebrows
  • Chanel Inimitable Mascara - a few coats
  • Burts Bees Lip Balm with Pomegranate Oil
  • MAC Lipstick - Cutester

So I broke my laptop... sigh :( All my photos, videos, movies, music, all gone :( Thank God I got this laptop as a Christmas present from my mom! It's got Windows 7 and everything on it and I love it, especially the texture of the laptop! I don't know, I just love VAIOs for how pretty they are I think? lol

I got the VGN NW series, the VGN-NW25GF to be exact and it's not the best of the best of laptops but I don't really need that, I just use my laptop for browsing and such. I do recommend VAIOs though, it has been good to me and it's pretty quick!


Thank you so much to all my girls who have helped with when I needed it, with my contouring, searching for the right shade of Amazing Concealer, CS HD Foundation and so many other things! It's amazed me so much at how sweet all you girls are and seeing your comments really do make me smile :) So again, thank you thank you thank you! *ENDLESS HUGS*

FOTD: Yummy Espresso + Countouring help? + Photo Tag + Giveaway!

Gosh it's amazing what lighting can do for your complexion! I took some of these photos in bright sunlight near my window and my face looks seriously FLAWLESS! :D This was taken yesterday, I was about to go to my mom and sister's baptism so I decided something that's neutral and not too heavy, clearly as it's church. Nothing too complex and but I liked it! I never really thought about using Espresso as a lid colour for some reason until now, weird....

  • MAC Studio Fix Fluid - NC25
  • Prescriptives Camouflage Cream - Yellow/Orange Medium 04
  • Palgantong Theatrical Powder - Clear - t-zone only
  • NARS Blush - Orgasm
  • MAC Eyeshadow - Espresso - all over lid
  • MAC Eyeshadow - Wedge - blended above Espresso
  • MAC Eyeshadow - Showstopper - eyebrows and to darken the outer corners a little
  • MAC Eyeshadow - Ricepaper - inner v corner

  • Rimmel Eye Kohl - White
  • Chanel Mascara - Inimitable
  • Benefit Her Glossiness Lipgloss - My People, Your People

I've been going Christmas shopping left right and center, again to pick out my presents and I just totally realized how picky I am... I must stop being so picky! I did get the Clinique 3-step skincare system today, though I'm not allowed to use it until Christmas :P I hope it works because the random breakouts on my chin from stress HAS TO STOP!

Anywhoooo, I wanted to contour my round as face more and was wondering if anyone has a good suggestion about which one to get? It can be any brand, I don't really judge stuff by brands anyway! :P

Hope everyone is well!


The beautiful, gorgeous, stunning Sarah tagged me for this photo tag! :)

Rules of tag:
1) Open your 1st photo folder.
2) Scroll to the 10th photo.
3) Post the photo and the story behind it.

I actually just lost all my photos because I broke my laptop so I just opened up my facebook and scrolled to the 10th photo, I hope that's still half okay? lol

This photo was while I was in Indo a few months ago, we don't have Starbucks here in Perth so everytime I go back home to Jakarta I try to have a green tea frappucino everyday (yes, I am psychotic, help me!) but I'm pretty sure I was at Plaza Indonesia and this was after a longggg day shopping and my mom, my sister and me just wanted to sit down. We couldn't find a seat inside so we had to go outside in the sweltering heat and I wanted to die, you all know how I hate the heat! My sister wanted to take a photo of me and my beloved frappucino but I was cleaning my teeth... yeah... great photo taking skills my sister has :P

Now... I would like to tag....

New Haircut + eBay Purchases + BeautyshopOC Update

Hi everyone! I just got a haircut today and it is the first time since I was like 9 that I have bangs! They are a bit longer and I can put them to the side if I wish to but I love them so much! I still have to get used to the fact that they will get in my eyes once in a while though! I get my hair cut with Sorge at the House of Ernest and I have been going there since I was about 13, so technically, no one else in this world has touched my hair other than the lovely Sorge. I trust him beyond words with my hair and he has never failed me :)

Ever since I saw xppinkxx dye her hair and the lovely eki always dying her hair, I was also thinking of dyeing my hair lighter as well, but my mom won't let me, she thinks I have nice coloured hair already haha What do you guys think I should do?


So my eBay purchases arrived :D They actually arrived really quick, probably a few business days after I purchased them and they are exactly what I pictured them to be. Problem is, it doesn't really keep my hair back? Like, it doesn't really stay and it's not sturdy. Is it because I have really thick hair? I've only used one of the pink ones and the bow one once, it is definitely cute though :)


As for BeautyshopOC and their lack of communication and just general shit-ness of customer service, I will file a PayPal dispute as I have written them another e-mail saying that if they don't fix my situation within the next two days (3 days ago now I think) that I will file a dispute and they still haven't gotten back to me, so I guess I will be filing that dispute. I am so glad I used PayPal to order and I definitely will not be buying from this website again. WARNING TO ALL LADIES: DO NOT BUY ANYTHING FROM BEAUTYSHOPOC OR IHEARTREDCHERRY! The person who runs BeautyshopOC also runs iheartredcherry and after I've googled them, I've found so many people that didn't get their order. This is completely unacceptable and unprofessional! I hope everyone will spread the word and no one will ever have to go through something like I did again.
