Too Dolly for You



If you're a MAC fan or a HK fan then you'll know what I'm talking about. Yup, I used MAC Hello Kitty Collection Too Dolly e/s Palette for this look. And you know what, the more I look at it, the more I like this one.

Back to the look, I'm really glad how this turned out, actually I don't think I would ever guess that this combination was created using Too Dolly because none of the colours match the palette but yes, I did, in fact use all the e/s from the palette other than my highlights.

Ooh and I'm still not over my eyebrows! I don't think I'll ever get it done professionally anymore!
Eyes:


Lips:

What I used:
Eyes:
MAC Frost e/s in Ricepaper
MAC Pigments in Shimmer-Time
MAC Hello Kitty Collection Too Dolly e/s Palette
Stage Brow Defining Pencil in Cinammon

Lips:
Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in Nude Delight
MAC Cremesheen Glass in Boy Bait

Face:
L'Oreal True Match Liquid Foundation in R2 Apricot Ivory
MAC Studio Finish Concealer in NC30
MAC Mineralize Blush in Superdupernatural (it's exactly that!)
MAC Bronzing Powder in Golden (contour)

Face:

What I did:
Highlighted inner corners and browbone with Ricepaper then Shimmer-Time in inner corners. Too Dolly(sheer turquoise) on entire lid. Stately Black on outer V, blend, blend, blend. Romping(Hot pink w/ purple undertone) in crease. Blend some more, eyeliner, contour, blush, lippie and that was it!


I'm a fierce kitten! LOL. Do I look constipated??

The reason why I used Too Dolly is cuz I feel guilty of buying so much without using "some" of my junk and i'm glad I did that and this has encouraged me to dig out more old e/s and blushes etc. I'm taking it as a challenge and you should too!

Oh and I've been working out some of my issues and I'm prefectly happy with everything right now(*grins and bares it) just hoping the exams would pass sooner.. Thanks for reading!

More GEO for me!

My package came in yesterday and I'm just super excited cuz this time I ordered 4 different lenses. So here are some pics for those of you still considering coloured lenses. I haven't unbottled them yet, will do that one by one once I get bored of my current, Angel Greys. These lenses are yearly disposable and I paid RM25 for each pair(of 3tone lenses) from beautygeolens.blogspot.com

So here's what's inside, the bottles were wrapped with newspaper and it cam with 15(!!) sheets of the lens guide. It's 15 pages of the same thing. Lol. Dunno what happened there.. My lenses took exactly a month, if not a few days more than a month to arrive but starting from the next batch, beautygeolens.blogspot.com will be able to get the lenses within 1 week after placing the order.


LtoR: CM-932 Nudy Gold Blue, CTS-104 Honey Wing, CTS-105 Ash Wing, CTS-102 Blue Wing

CM-932 Nudy Gold Blue (I know the label says CH-932 but the code on the website is CM-932)

If you've read Connie's FAQ, you'll know that this is the pair of lenses she wears that gives her eyes such a natural sky blue colour.

CTS-104 Honey Wing

This one looks a little yellowish which is freaking me out cuz I have a phobia of people wearing yellow lenses(which I why I avoid buying brown lenses) but I think it'll turn out alright.

CTS-105 Ash Wing

Another pair of grey lenses for me. I really like Angel Grey and I hope this will meet my expectations.

CTS-102 Blue Wing

Another blue one. I'm hoping to look like a black hair, blue-eyed girl!
I hope this post helps those who are interested cuz when I googled GEO lenses there wasn't much about them and all the photos on the blogshops aren't very accurate or some only show the eyes so you can't tell if it'll look good on you. I will be trying each and every one soon after my exams so I hope this helps for now. Stay tuned for when I try'em on!!

Cheddar Cheese Loaf turned Cream Cheese


That's exactly what I mean. The recipe shows Cheddar Cheese Loaf but somehow I buy Cream cheese (I'm a cheese dummie, they all sound the same to me =X) and thus, I present to you, Cream Cheese Loaf! My very first creation! Lol.



It's not bad even though I used milk that tasted a little sour(haha) but it turned out alright, I really like the golden crusts and the soft, moist yellow inside, hungry again....

PS: Click to enlarge whichever photo.

But try it out if you can.

MAC Exclusives Mineralize Kits Swatches + Mini Haul

So I heard from Jenn that the mineralize kits weren't gonna be in Penang(*gasp) so in KL I went STRAIGHT to MAC(*sarcasm) and I found them there. They're in-stores only which means that if the store is like independent then they carry the kits. The MAC in Gurney is under Parkson(like a departmental store with many floors selling everything) so no mineralize kits. Anyways, I also found Style Black there(!!!) but by then I was more interested in the DSquared2 cuz I wanted Lip Erase but that collection was so long ago.

There are 2 kits: Pinkzapoppin & Fun in the Sun Mineralize Kits. RM300!! (US $59.50)

Swatches:


Pinkzapoppin! M.Kit-
-Love Connection(M.e/s): Both very shimmery colours, one in baby pink(so pretty!) and a brown near orangey.
-Dainty(M.Blush): All I can say is PINK. It's a very typical mid-tone pink which I think everyone has seen enough of.
-Light Flush(MSF): It's peach, pink and a hint of gold, this colour is just so pretty cuz it gives a subtle glow.
-181SE(Kabuki Brush): It's B-graded(#182 which is the full size Kabuki is an A-grade so the bristles are a lot softer) so this one is kinda rough to the touch. Eeks! And I thought I was gonna get the kits just for the Kabuki, you'll see that I just bought it full-size instead!

Fun in the Sun M.Kit-
-Play on Plums(M.e/s): It's peach and a plum e/s. This one is gorgeous. All lightly shimmered.
-Nuance(M.Blush): It's peach!
-Shimpagne(MSF): Light goldish white? Good for highlighting I guess but all over the face would look ghastly for darker skin tones. Very shimmery.
-181SE(Kabuki brush): Refer to the above.


Some Liquidlast Liners someone swatched:
I might not have gotten all the colours correct and some I couldn't find on the website so this'll have to do but I'll definitely go back someday for better swatches. Never considered these liners till today. Aqualine is really bright teal, def for those who want to attract.

What I bought in the end:

1. #182 Kabuki RM160 (approx US $32)
Totally in love with it, it's really soft and I've been wanting one since forever. Remind me to do a full brush review. Lots to cover.

2. Mineralize Blush in Superdupernatural RM95 (US $19)
After I decided against getting the mineralize kits (but I really wanted to but the combination of colours wasn't in my preference and I was DYING for Light Flush!!!!) I needed some blush to compensate for Light Flush which would've been perfect as blush so I got Superdupernatural. It's been raved by EVERYONE and I just couldn't resist any longer.




Swatches:


It's a corally peach which looks really natural on fair to medium skin tones. This one is really pigmented. Can't wait to try it!

All for now. I still have some camwhore pics to post so thanks for reading once again!
