Lack of Posts + Daddy

Hi hi everyone !

I'm so sorry for the lack of post but I've just been running around a lot lately, on the weekend it was my bf's birthday, then I found out my dad is sick (he's in Jakarta) and in hospital so I've been pretty upset and been worrying my butt off and crying and stuff.. Just haven't really had the time to play with make up, I've been looking like a DOG lately! My dad is doing better but he is still in hospital so I've just been praying and praying that he will get better enough to come here for Christmas because that is all I want, just to see him and give him a hug and to tell him that I love him.

I haven't had the best of relationships with my dad, my parents are divorced and he was absent a lot when I was younger but when I got older I started to talk to him more, and as much as I hated him for not being there, for HER being around him and not letting me talk to him sometimes, at the end of the day, he is my dad and I love him dearly no matter what. Just hearing he was in hospital broke my heart, I couldn't stop crying and I was so worried that I wasn't just there with him (he didn't want me to come home, because he was so convinced he was fine), but it also made me realized how much he meant to me. I'm a worrier and I have negative thoughts sometimes which I have block and shoo away from my head, but I really thought I'd lose him and I really wouldn't be able to cope to have lost him and not mend my relationship with him. This is why I've been calling him everyday, if not call then at least an sms, just so he knows I'm thinking about him because I do... A lot more than he thinks....

Just please don't take your family for granted, I will never do that again, I have learnt so much the past few days, from forgiveness, love, and just to get over my own stubborn-ness it's unbelievable...

I will be back posting probably next week or earlier but just know I am thinking of all you girls :D I am still reading your blogs religiously and leaving comments :) If I could just ask for one thing from you guys, just please pray that my daddy gets better soon... I just want to see him out of the hospital and to come here to celebrate Christmas with us... It would mean the world to me... :)

P.S: Oh by the way! Thank you all so much for helping with find my CS HD Foundation shade! I think I will be getting the ST-04 :D BIG BIG thank you and hugs to you all! :D

FOTD: Classic Red Lips + Sasa Haul! + Coastal Scents HD Foundation Help

I decided to try and find a look that would compliment the red lips so of course I just went with a simple classic liner look and barely anything else. I am definitely liking red lips more and more, but I still want the a matte red lipstick instead of a shiny finish. For some reason, I just think that it will look more subtle on me if it's not a shiny finish.. Enjoy!

  • MAC Studio Fix Fluid - NC 25
  • MAC Studio Sculpt Concealer - NC 30 - yes I need to buy the right shade for me now :P
  • Prescriptives Camouflage Cream - Yellow/Orange Medium 04
  • Palgantong Theatrical Powder
  • MAC Eyeshadow - Brule (nude matte colour) - all over the lid
  • MAC Eyeshadow - Showstopper (matte very dark brown) - eyebrows
  • MAC Eyeshadow - Espresso (matte muted golden brown) - very slight line under the lower lash line just to define the eyes a little more
  • Bobbi Brown Long Wear Gel Liner - Black Ink - simple slightly winged line
  • Rimmel Eye Kohl - White
  • Maybelline Mascara - The Colossal Volum Express - I'm definitely ehhhh with this mascara...
  • NYX False Eyelashes - #EL 128
  • Chapstick
  • Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte - Red Temptation #16

MY SASA.COM HAUL ARRIVED TODAY! :D YAYYY!! I woke up to my boyfriend telling me that there was a package for me, you couldn't have gotten me out of the bed faster I swear! I was ecstatic I probably scared my boyfriend off a bit :P

Some swatches for the Skin79 Hot Pink BB Cream:

(with flash)

I need help girls! I am dying to get my hands on the Coastal Scents HD Foundation but I am definitely stuck on what shade to get. I watched Fafinettex3's review on it last night and the colours that I saw on the video definitely does not look like the shade picture provided on the website. I have been wanting to try a HD foundation for so long and for the $16.95 price tag on the Coastal Scents one, how could I refuse???

If anyone of you guys have bought the Coastal Scents HD Foundation before, would you pretty please leave a comment telling me what shade you are in another foundation (MAC, MUFE, etc) and then tell me which shade you got in the CS HD Foundation and whether it was a good match or not? I know this is totally a long shot as the product JUST came out but if anyone could help, that would be so awesome! Thank you in advance! :D


Ohhhh by the way! Please don't get offended if I don't "follow" your blog, I don't really check updates on blog through that feauture, I do it through my blog roll :) So if your blog is on my blog roll, I am definitely keeping up with your blog and reading it religiously :) I'm up to 67 followers by the way, it's so weird to me that people like my blog, don't get me wrong, I love the fact that people take an interest in me and my life, but I never thought that many people would :P Thank you so much for the support and once I hit 100 or 150 followers, I might have a giveaway! :D <3

New Foundation + My 1st Rouge Volupte Lipstick! + Awaiting haul... + This Is It

I finally got a new foundation! WOOOO! I am now an NC25, though I swear this is a little teensy bit too dark for me... Oh my gosh, I felt sooooo pale! I don't think I've ever been this pale before, but in all seriousness, I THINK I like it? My first rouge Volupte also arrived! I got it in #16 Red Temptation, because I thought it would be a similar colour to Russian Red, which it is, but I realized after I got it that I actually really wanted a matte finish... sigh.. I'm silly! There's a swatch on my lips and arm below, and I am in advance, apologizing for my noobness and messiness in applying the red lipstick, I am still in need of red lip liner and plus I just got up :P


I am STILL waiting for my haul to arrive and also my Red Cherry lashes to arrive. I HATE HATE HATE waiting, I am so impatient! :P

I also bought some hair velcro from ebay that fuzkittie uses to pin back her hair. They are super duper cheap, I think the pink ones were US$1.99 and the bow is US$2.99, both with free shipping! If anyone is intereste I bought the pink ones off this seller and the bow off this seller, both located in Hong Kong. I can't wait until they arrive! :D


So I watched This Is It with my mom and grandma on Tuesday (I watch a movie with them every Tuesday :P) and oh my gosh I thought it was amazing! I was in awe all throughout the movie, his voice sounded so good, and his dancemoves... only Michael can pull those off! There were parts throughout where I was just so sad because I can't believe he's gone, he was definitely one in a million and was just so full of love, the world lost a great man. Rest in peace MJ, you will surely be missed.

FOTD: Fairy Inspired + 2012 + Giveaways

So I'm not a totally and completely creative person but I just decided to try something new. I never usually wear any colours for make up, I like to keep it neutral for everyday and smokey eyes at night. Yes, I know, it sounds boring, but I guess it's just what I've been comfortable with, but I started thinking, since I am going to do a make up course, I really should start getting more and more creative with my looks. So today, I was just messing around, and I created something that's really light, shimmery look, it reminded me of fairies so that's why I called it fairy inspired :P Again, I really do hate the fact that my camera washes out the colour because in real life, the colours are more vibrant :(



  • Studio Sculpt Concealer - NC30 - hide blemishes
  • Studio Fix Fluid - NC30
  • MAC Loose Powder - NC30
  • Napoleon Perdis Loose Dust - No. 14 - dust along the cheekbone up to the temple
Eyes: To make it easier for me to write down
which colours I used, I just numbered the 88 palette so I can just write numbers instead of writing like, 3rd row, 4th from right kind of a thing which I find a pain to do :D

  • 88 Shimmer Palette - No. 28 & 6 - mixed together and put in inner v
  • 88 Shimmer Palette - No. 40 & 62 - mixed together and put on the rest of lid area
  • MAC Pigment - Quietly - Outer V and also lower lash line
  • Napoleon Perdis Loose Dust - No. 14
  • Bobbi Brown Long Wear Gel Liner - Black Ink - lined upper lash line and drag the line down to underneath the lash line
  • Chanel Inimitable Mascara
  • Rimmel Eye Kohl -White - lined waterline
  • NYX False Eyelashes - No. 125
  • MAC Lipstick - Creme De Nude
  • Lanolips Lip Ointment with Colour - Rose - over the lipstick

I also watched 2012 last night and I thought it was so good! I've always been afraid of the whole "the world is going to end" kind of a thing, because, I know this sounds silly, but I am really scared of drowning or just dying in horrible conditions. I sort of couldn't sleep last night because I was thinking about it so much. The fact that people do think the world will end in 2012 scares me even more! The movie was pretty darn long though, but thoroughly enjoyable :) I totally recommend people to see it. My bf and I actually wanted to see it on Sunday but when we got there, the tickets were sold out already, so we ended up just seeing it last night :)


The awesome Mommy Fabulous is having this totally FABULOUS giveaway! She is giving away a bunch of MAC goodies! You should check out her blog and find out about how to enter it yourself through here.

EOTD + Best choc chip cookies recipe, EVER!

Oh my gosh, these are seriously the best cookies I've ever had, they are so yummy, chewy (my favourite kind) and just all round good! I got the recipe from this great food blog called, Lovin' From the Oven. Except I changed the all purpose flour, to self raising flour and cut out the baking soda bit. I also lessened the caster sugar because it was a little too sweet for me.

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  1. Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, cream together the melted butter, brown sugar and white sugar until well blended. Beat in the vanilla, egg, and egg yolk until light and creamy. Mix in the sifted ingredients until just blended. Stir in the chocolate chips by hand using a wooden spoon.
  3. Refrigerate the dough for at least an hour. When it's time, Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  4. Drop cookie dough 1/4 cup at a time onto the prepared cookie sheets. Cookies should be about 3 inches apart.
  5. Bake for 15 to 17 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the edges are lightly toasted. Cool on baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.

A really simple EOTD today, I didn't have much time :) Sorry the black line under my eyes is a little faded, I did take this when I got home at the end of the day :P

  • NYX Ultra Pearl Mania - White - just on the lid, blended upwards
  • MAC Eyeshadow - Wedge - a little on the crease just for a little bit of warmth and depth
  • Bobbi Brown Long Wear Gel Liner - Black Ink - lined lash line
  • MAC Eyeshadow - Carbon - lined lower outer lash line
  • Rimme Eye Kohl - White
  • MAC Pigment - Lily White - inner tear ducts
  • MAC Eyeshadow - Showstopper - eyebrows, though you can't really see them here..
  • Rimmel Mascara - Sexy Curves
  • Chanel Lipgloss Levres Scintillantes Glossimer - #44

Etude House Moistfull Mist Review + Maggie's Giveaway!

Okay, so the concept of this product is that it will moisturize your skin when it feels dry and parched. It contains Baobab Tree extract that is the key ingredient to the success of this skincare line. This mist is in the Moistfull (Duhhh... :P) skincare line that's designed for dry skin.

Me and my mom have been using this since we went to the Etude House store in Jakarta and have been loving it ever since! My mom has naturally dry skin so when she mentioned that it's actually helped her skin stay moisturized during the day, I decided to give it a try and I love it!

I usually use it after I've had a shower, just before I put on my moisturizer in winter and then again over my make up. The mist on this is sooo fine and delicate, it feels so amazing on your skin and it smells so delicious! It also dries really quickly straight after you put it on. After trying this I'm actually tempted to buy other products that is in the skincare line for winter. It's actually pretty inexpensive as well! I couldn't find anywhere in Australia to buy Etude products so I had to buy it on eBay, and it was US$12 for one, so me and my mom got 3 :D The can is 50ml, and I totally wish they would make a bigger one, but it is a perfect size to store in handbags and stuff :)

I would totally recommend this to anyone who's skin is feeling parched throughout the day, because a spritz of this just totally revitalizes your skin and I will definitely repurchase this :D


So Maggie from The Polka-Dotted Apple. is having an awesome giveaway right now!

The winner gets....
  • Urban Decay Book of Shadows Vol II
  • Full size Urban Decay Sparkler Pen Lipgloss
  • Full size Sugar Lip Slick
And a bunch more stuff! I can't seem to get my hands on the Urban Decay Book of Shadows and am dying for it, so here's my entry!

1. What is my most prized possession? My dog for sure! He will be the only boy that will love me unconditionally and will give me cuddles on a winters night :D
2. What is your definition of beauty? I think that beauty comes from within, I mean, it sounds really cliche, but seriously, being confident is my definition of being beautiful.
3. What makeup item (Brand and name product) would you recommend to me? At the moment I am obsessed with the Bobbi Brown Long Wear Gel Eyeliner, so I have to recommend that. It's such a dream to use!
4. What is your favourite kind of makeup item and why? I love mascara! It can make your eyes look so open and a makeup look wouldn't look complete until you put on the mascara as the finishing touch.
5. A weird factoid about you: I am a granny driver, I don't speed, I indicate every time I'm supposed to and I hate people who don't follow the road rules.
6. What is the fondest memory of your childhood? I used to go up to the mountains (Puncak, if you're an Indo you would know what this is lol) to my holiday house a lot in Jakarta with my whole big family and those times were just so fun and carefree and also the highlights of my childhood.
7. Describe yourself honestly: I am so erratic it's kind of funny, I change my mind a lot, I get bored of things so easily and I love being by myself, but all this goes out the window when I meet the right guy... sounds kinda sad but I don't think it's such a bad trait at all. I am super duper friendly and I will do anything for you, but... only if I like you lol I'm also pretty judgmental, but who isn't? lol
8. Tell me something I can do to improve my blog: I might sound like I'm sucking up, and I am pretty new to your blog, but just from a skin through your new posts and old, I actually wouldn't want you to change anything. I think you have the right balance of makeup looks, hauls and just general blogging. DON'T CHANGE A THING! And just keep doing what you're doing now :)

November 4, 2009 order + chin breakouts.... AGAIN! + IQQU products?

So I have ordered some stuff off the other day :) I am very excited for these because I truly TRULY love the masks that I am buying. Here are the list of this I am buying from Sasa:
  • Laneige Strawberry Yoghurt Pack
  • Asience Shine Therapy Shampoo
  • Asience Shine Therapy Conditioner
  • Kose Clearturn Q10 Essence Mask x 2 (yes, that's how much I love it... this is the SHIT!)
  • SKIN79 Hot Pink Collection Super Beblesh Balm
I will do a proper review on the Kose Clearturn mask a
t a later date but seriously guys, oh my gosh, if you have dry, parched feeling skin, this is the thing for you. It will plump up your face amazingly!

Downside in my life right now, my chin is breaking out like freaking crazy. I'm not sure whether it's because I just started to take birth control pills and my hormones are acting out, that time of the month, just general facial crappyness or what! I have been doing my normal routine, but if my chin doesn't get any better, I might have to try new things. These are just the little whiteheads that you can squeeze (yes, I squeeze, so what? I love the noise it makes and the feeling is almost orgasmic.... *sigh* I know I'm weird :P), but these are the under the skin big momma ones that you can't even pop! It's like 3 pimples in one, no joke, I look like I have an extra chin. Okay, I kid and I'm exaggerating but seriously though, it's really bad... Does anyone know of a good acne scar fading treatment? Other than Bio Oil cause for some reason, that shizz don't like me or something, it just doesn't work.

By the way, have any of you tried any of the IQQU products? It can be found here and I just want to see a general feedback from any of you guys that have tried it. I am dying to get my hands on the IQQU Acne Serum! The price is quiet steep for a small amount of product though I must say...

Anywhooooo ~ I will leave you guys with a photo of me and my baby at my sister's 27th birthday :) I hope you're all well!

HG Gel Liner!!!

I have found my HG gel liner! Oh my gosh.. it's PERFECT! It's so easy to use, WAY easier than the MAC Fluidline! :D It is.... *Drum roll* THE BOBBI BROWN LONG WEAR GEL EYELINER! :D Hence why I was playing around with shapes and whatnot with it :P I use a MAC #210 brush and was playing around with the shapes of the latest Pixiwoo video, gosh I love them! Sorry about the messiness of these looks, I wa
s in a real hurry :) And as you can see I did both eyes differently just so I can do the two looks that the video sorta showed in my own interpretation. I was surprised that I liked the double winged liner look on me!

Hope everyone is well! I'm still so so excited about the make up course! EEEEK! :D

Ohhhh! I saw Julie and Julia the other day with my mom, grandma and sister and it was such a cute movie! I wish the movie showed more of Julia though, less of Julie... :P Meryl Streep was hilarious! I would totally recommend this feel good movie!

P.S: Really weirdly... my skin has gotten a lot lighter... I didn't realize it until I walked out of the house and looked in my car mirror that my face was a different shade to my neck! It was so embarrassing! So now I must get a lighter shade of foundation... since my MAC SFF looks SO FREAKING YELLOW ON MY SKIN it looks gross :(
