Missing Mermaid Look

I really do miss blogging and I'm glad to finally be back but soon enough I'm gonna have some major exams which means I'll have to do the disappearing act again. *sighs Here's a look I wore today with my new Chanel palette and MAC Pigments (both a first for me =) ) and like every other look I do, just looks the same when I open my eyes. Oh well.


Eyes:


Lips:


Face:

When my pictures are taken in the car, it means I was so busy I didn't have time to do it at home. Lol. Probably also why I forgot to smile =) Haha.

What I used:
Eyes:
MAC Frost e/s in Ricepaper (highlight, really love how natural it is!!)
Shu Uemura Glow-on Blush in PGold91 (under eye highlight, it works so well in a very subtle way)
Chanel Quadra e/s in 15 Bird of Paradise (Turquoise: Lid) *what a good name
MAC Pigments in Shimmer-Time
I Nuovi Eyecake in Hematite
Majolica Majorca Perfect Automatic Eyeliner in BK999

Lips:
Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited in PK302
MAC Cremesheen Glass in Boy Bait (it's sheerer than I thought)

Face:
MAC Prep+Prime Skin Refined Zone Treatment
MAC Prep+Prime Face Protect Protection Visage
MAC Studio Sculpt Foundation in NC25
I Nuovi Perfector in 3Y (omg, this is really good)
MAC Hocus Focus Colourful Face Kit

How I did it:
I highlighted the eyes and used Hematite in the crease. Then I wet the #139/e/s brush and sweeped on some turquoise from the Chanel Quadra e/s palette. Lastly, I used some Shimmer-Time pigments on my inner corners. Turquoise on the lower outer and Shimmer-Time on the lower inner. Finally eyelined and applied falsies. Some blush, highlighting blush and beauty powder all over.

As for my huge-as* haul from yesterday I won't share today just to build up your suspense. It's scheduled for tomorrow. And I'm really exhausted from all the swatching, buying, makeup-ing and blogging so I'm going to sleep now and I'll be checking back for more lovely comments.. tomorrow!! ;)

Magic, Mirth and Mischief!-inspired Look

After Style Black, I was determined never to miss another collection again, so I geared up and got ready to go to Gurney on the first day of the Magic, Mirth and Mischief! launch. I really loved the makeup on the leaflet which was mainly purple. *Sorry for the messy hair, there are two things I never get right, one is hair and the other is brows. I guess brows are hair too. Lol. I'm not a hair person?..

Eyes:



Lips:

Face:

I was super, super excited about the collection!!

What I used:
Eyes:
CS 88 Color Palette {Lid: H2.H4 Crease:H5}
MAC Frost e/s in Ricepaper (Highlight)
Shu Uemura Glow-On Blush in PGold91 (Under eye highlight)
Cyber Colors Jewel Amour e/s in 12 Moonstone
Majolica Majorca Perfect Automatic Liner in BK999
MAC Pearlglide Eyeliner in Miss Fortune (layered over black liner for that glittery purple liner look)

Lips:
Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in Nude Delight
MAC Dazzleglass Creme in Soft Dazzle
ISBROW Shiny Lip Plumper (it's like clear gloss except more watery than sticky, love it to bits, it makes my lips feel watery instead of sticky)

Face:

MAC Studio Finish Concealer in NC30
MAC Sheertone Blush in Pink Swoon
MAC Bronzing Powder in Golden (contour)

Collective Hauls

Popteen Oct 09 & Gatsby Moving Rubber in Air Rise(smells like grapes??)

Dove Dry Therapy Shampoo (love x3), Nivea Star Fruits Lip Care in Strawberry & Guardian Shavers

Smells really sweet.. Makes me smack my lips all day long.


This is my first shaver so I thought I'd try it on my finger hairs before proceeding with my face but..
This is what happens(below) so I think I'm gonna keep away from my face till I figure out how do shave properly. Lol.

Nivea Facial Cleansing Wipes(very convenient) & Maybelling Make Up Remover (my 8th bottle or so..)

I Nuovi Glitteratti in Fifth Element & I Nuovi Fixit


It's so mesmerizing. Literally makes my eyes go out of focus. Haha.



Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in Nude Delight



I got this after hearing so many good reviews of it. And it is true that it's the best nude so far (not that I have any nudes cuz I couldn't find anything that didn't make me look dead.. till this)

Velcro Hair Holders & Condensed Face Mask Cottons(DIY Mask Sheets)


Got these from a drugstore but they can easily be found at Sasa.

Any questions about prices or where to get please don't hesitate to ask. =)

Asian Makeup Gone Wrong



This look really reminded me of Connie's video on Asian Makeup Gone Horribly Wrong (lol, that was a great video) and well, this was on the same day that I
a) Had a bad hair day (if my bangs are pinned up, that's what it is)
b) Had a bad lip day (when I can't seem to fix my pigmented lips w/ a little makeup)
c) Had a bad skin day (when I minimize concealing to get an au naturel look but my skin still looks like shi* and then I just load on concealer but I still look like a pimple face and also a tart)
d) Had a low battery sign on my camera (so I didn't get to cam-whore for the hours that I usually do and I couldn't even take pictures of my haul after getting home before I went to sleep which makes me pi*sed cuz I like doing all that before I go to bed)
e) Didn't and couldn't get anything from Style Black (read previous post)

so all in all, it was a rather bad day technically but I was still happy cuz I bought a huge-ass red suitcase for London!!! (if you didn't already know, I'm going to London next year!!! x) Yay, you'll just have to stay tuned next year for the adventures there) And also the Dazzleglass Creme that I settled for after having nothing else to buy at MAC that was limited eedition really cheered me up a bit. I guess, in life, you don't always get what you want and The Makeup Snob's post about How long new makeup stuff can make you happy really got me thinking.

If I bought 2 dazzleglasses on the same day,
will I be as excited
If I bought 1 dazzleglass?

And the answer is yes! so just a single item from MAC (escpecially lipglosses cuz they smell SO GOOD!) can make me really, really happy and extremely, exxtremely cheerful, no matter how bad the day is.

Thank you once again for bearing with me. =) I babble a lot..

Style Black Haul w/ nothing from Style Black at all



This haul is quite a while ago and I think I'm over the whole Style Black disappointment thing but here's what I got in the end..

Before that, did you know that there are only 10 MAC outlets in Malaysia???!!!

Anyways, this is it.
MAC Dazzleglass Creme in Soft Dazzle & MAC e/s in Ricepaper

MAC Dazzleglass Creme in Soft Dazzle (rm 80) is a soft peachy pink with tiny gold flecks.


Swatches w/ and w/ flash:

The colour is just GORgeous!!
The Dazzleglass Creme comes with the usual brush except it looks a little pointy-er than Lipglass brushes??

MAC Frost e/s in Ricepaper (rm 58) is perfect for highlighting the brow bone and inner corners of the eye.

Swatches w/ and w/o flash:

It's really natural.
