March 30, 2012 Haul

Yayyy! My SaSa haul came! And on a Saturday too! This is definitely the best thing to wake up to! I was also super excited because this means that I can start using the Laneige White Plus Line and see whether it brightens up my face or not! 

My Loot:
 Laneige White Plus Renew Essence - I am really looking forward to using this because this should be the thing that makes your skin brighter/whiter the most! It smells uber nice, it has a nice fresh scent to it, definitely not sweet, which I do not like on skincare anyway. 
Laneige White Plus Renew Night Cream 
Laneige White Plus Renew Skin Refiner 
Bioderma Crealine H2O - MY FAVOURITE FAVOURITE FAVOURITEEEEE water cleanser EVER! I ran out of this for my kit so decided to buy another one and since y'all know I shop around to see where it is the cheapest online, I have found SaSa to be the cheapest at US$29.70. 
BiorĂ© Face Wash - I actually bought this face wash previously when I went back home to Jakarta and I really like it. It is REALLY cheap for a cleanser and my boyfriend seems to like it so that's a plus! 
Shiseido Men Moisturiser - For the boyfriend! 
Shiseido Night Moisture Recharge (not pictured because I gave it to my sister already!)

Again, let me know if there's anything in this haul that you guys want to hear more on. I will definitely be using the Laneige skincare for awhile before I do a full review on it because I want to see how it works over time and I don't think that using it once or twice is enough for a review.

It may only be one item but man oh man are you expensive!!!!

Strawberrynet Haul!

I adore getting packages from the post office! Nothing makes me happier :) I went on a spending spree last Saturday on Strawberrynet and I'm still waiting for my Sasa haul to come but I'm super excited that my Strawberrynet did! I mean, it always does come earlier than Sasa anyway! Onto what I got:

Make Up For Ever Face & Body Foundation (#20 Ivory) - I've been wanting to get this for the longest time and for awhile I was tossing up between the MAC Face & Body and the MUFE Face & Body. When I saw it on Strawberrynet, it was just a sign that I should get this first. I will definitely get the MAC Face & Body so I could use it for my airbrushing but I will be getting that later on in the year when I go to IMATS I think! 

First impression for this foundation is.... wow it smells funny. I always get really weird about scents and this foundation, I won't lie, has a strong floral-y scent to it and I'm not sure I like it. 

Make Up For Ever Extreme Camouflage Concealer (#4 Flesh) - I also needed a new concealer and I'm super excited to try this out. I haven't heard too much about it online or anything but I thought I'd give it a try because I am breaking out like CRAZY and I need something to hide my big ol pimples! It's also a plus for me that this is fragrance free :) 

Laneige White Star Emulsion - I have been needing new skincare as well, I am finishing up my JUJU Cosmetics skincare and I was tossing up between Shu Uemura, SK II and Laneige. I ended up impulse buying on the Laneige skincare line because it is cheaper and I have heard great things about this line brightening up your skin. I always have scarring from pimples and I hate it so I'm very excited to try this line out. The rest of my Laneige stuff (Toner, serum and night moisturiser) are still coming in my Sasa haul because it was way cheaper on Sasa than it was on Strawberrynet.

Vitacreme B12 Moisturiser - My grandma really likes this moisturiser so I always get it for her when she runs out :) 
Shu Uemura Face Architect Glow Enchancing Powder Foundation Refill (#764) - Same, for my grandma as well! 

Let me know if you guys want to know any more about any of the products that I have purchased!

FOTD: Glowing Skin + OOTD (ish?)

I am OBSESSED with glowy skin at the moment so I am slathering myself with highlighter all over the place. I just went to see one of my best friends today who is moving over to Sydney next week and am about to go to IKEA! Good God, I love that place. 

By the way... WHO'S GOING TO THE SYDNEY IMATS??? Because I AM!!!!!!!!! Yayyyy!!!


  • L'Oreal Visible Lift Foundation/Shu Uemura Illuminating Foundation
  • Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector - on the high points of my face
  • Chanel Soleil Tan De Chanel - contour
  • Laura Mercier Loose Translucent Powder
  • TheBalm Mary-Lou Manizer - BEST HIGHLIGHTING PRODUCT EVER!! Oh my gosh, I will do a separate review if you guys like :)
  • La Femme Blush - Coral Spice + Naturelle 
  • Etude Eyebrow Pencil + MAC Omega - brows
  • MAC Pigment - Gold Mode
  • Inglot Gel Liner - Black 
  • Lancome Virtuose Mascara
  • Nivea Hydro Care Lip Balm


I've had some people ask me for an Outfit of the Day post and to be honest... I'm not too comfortable with my size at the moment... I've gained a lot of weight since I was at my smallest (which, mind you, I didn't get there in a very healthy way, I am just naturally curvy) and no matter how much I exercise or how often and how good I eat, I can't seem to budge the excess weight and it's bugging me out. I know I should be happy just being healthy but at times, I do miss those days were I was a size 8 (Australian size which would be like a size 4 US) just because everything fit me so well. I do realize that I am naturally curvy with big boobs and a big badonk ka donk to match but it sucks sometimes to have all my best friends be freakishly small! Enough of that rant... 

Today I wore:
Black Leggings - Some cheap Asian one that my mom got me in Jakarta
Denim button up shirt - Seed
Flats - Tory Burch
Bag - Balenciaga

FOTD: 1920s Party

I had a friend's birthday party on the weekend and it was a 1920s theme. Now, I am not one to really get into themes parties but I tried and actually bought a headband! Though, you can see that it disappeared as soon as I got there haha!

KKCenterHK Lashes Review (ES A613)

Disclaimer: I was sent these lashes for consideration. All opinions are my own and I was not paid to do this review. 

I received the 10 Pairs of Handmade Glamour Big Eye Eyelashes (ES A613) from KKCenterHK and my sister actually opened these babies up first. The first thing she said was, "Is it meant to look jaggedy??", I couldn't stop laughing and thought she was kidding because even though she's my older sister, she has NO clue about make up whatsoever. I looked over and it actually was jaggedy and not the normal short in the inner corner and gradually gets longer! Because of this, I was really hesitant to try but as soon as I put them on, I was in LOVE!

These eyelashes were perfect for my eyes I think because they are not too long, not too thick, not too thin and just looks very natural if you're looking at me from the front. They were way more comfortable than the ones that I got last time and I found them way easier to apply as well as they didn't do the awkward flippy uppy thing that the last box did. 


  • Great from people with short eyelashes as it is so natural looking
  • People with long eyelashes could wear these too if they are after volume
  • Very pliable stem 
  • Easy to apply 
  • Very comfortable
  • Great value for money (US$14.00 for 10 pairs) 
  • NONE! I am so completely in love with these lashes!! I am definitely going to buy some after I finish with this box!
