Etude House Etoinette

The Etude House Etoinette Collection is too lovely to pass up and I caved in today after collecting the new 
member card. Also got the Happy Fresh Foam in White Clay for oily skin on top of the Etoinette goodies. The bottom pedicure set is a free gift.

Be My Love Crystal Shine Lips Special Set came with a mini comb that is oh-so-cute and at the same price of one single Crystal Shine Lips. I chose the pink hue, code number PPK001.

The lipstick is embossed with some pretty details. The colour is a soft pink which is not really opaque with one swipe. However, it is really shiny without the usual shimmer.

I also got the Tear Eye Liner Set, in Set #02. It's a set of Charming Tear Liner in pink and Deep Brown Liner. These liquid liners are supposedly waterproof and smudgeproof. 

Swatches from top: Crystal Shine Lip, Pink Tear Eye Liner and Deep Brown Liner.

As I collected my new member card, they also included 3 samples inside - a piece of Aloe Mask, samples of Precious Mineral BB Cream & Collagen Moistfull Cream.

 It's a good haul indeed! Thanks for reading.

NOTD Water Marbling

I was looking through Instagram and saw lots of water marbling nails that are oh-so-pretty. Thought I would try it out myself after looking at some Youtube tutorials.

Left hand

Right hand
It was quite difficult to do, taking a total of 2 hours for me to complete the whole thing. What I found out was that cheap nail polishes are not suitable for this technique. It just won't spread when dropped into the water. The nail polishes that worked were OPI and China Glaze.

I quite like the end result and may attempt more of this technique in future :) Thanks for reading!

Friday Photo Meme - What's In Your Bag Edition

Photo meme inspired by Yumeko!
1. Cellphone
LOL, I didn't have a camera with me, so I used my laptop's webcam to take a photo of my cellphone. It's an iphone with a Hello Kitty cover which is also a mirror. You can see the reflection in kitty's face!

2. Purse
It's a Gucci purse I bought for myself last Christmas during the year end sale. Love!

3. Cards in my purse
These are some of my most essential cards in my wallet: a Kinokuniya privilege card, Watsons member card,  Clarins and 2 Starbucks cards because I'm a coffee addict like that!

4. Makeup
Chanel Luminous Matte Powder and a MAC lipstick. I didn't carry out my makeup bag as was with light makeup today, it also reduces the weight of my bag significantly!

5. Random stuff
Watsons wet wipes, a Hello Kitty pen and a Bath & Body Works Island Margarita hand gel that I nicked from my bf. It was given to him by his colleague and he doesn't use such 'girly' stuff..that's what he said.

I guess by the time I post this up, it is already Saturday! Oh well, to keep up with the theme created by Yumeko, shall keep it as a Friday Photo Meme.

Thanks for dropping by!

EOTD - KATE Deep Eyes PU-1

Finally, a long weekend! It's Good Friday, have blessed one, everyone! I had some time to do my eye make up before going out today and thought of using the KATE Deep Eyes palette that I found in my stash.

It is basically a pink-purple palette.

Sorry the swatches are too light. I'll try to swatch it again and update with a better photo.

The application instruction at the back of the packaging
Hmm...the shadows are too light to be noticeable in the photo but this is my EOTD, after adding some liner and mascara.

Stuff used
Skin 79 BB Cream, MAC Eyeliner in Engraved, Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion, Fairy Drops Mascara, KATE & Etude House blusher.

Eyeliners Swatches - Elianto & elf

Here are the swatches of the forgotten eyeliners mentioned in the previous post. Unfortunately one of it is a 'FAIL'. 

elf Waterproof Eyeliner Pen in black (left) and Liquid Eyeliner in Midnight (right)

Elianto StayOn Eyeliner Pen in black (middle)

As you can see, the elf Waterproof Eyeliner Pen is already faded and watery. I guess I have kept it unopened for too long and the ink has vaporized? LOL 

Elianto pen tip VS. elf Liquid eyeliner brush

 I've also swatched some other liquid/pen eyeliner that I have to see how they look against each other.

From top: Kate super sharp liner, essence eyeliner pen, Etude House Oh m'Eye Line, Elianto, elf & FAIL elf :p

 All eyeliners are in black except for Etude House in 02 (I think it's dark grey) and elf Liquid Eyeliner in Midnight (a dark navy blue).

Taken in flash, sorry if it's blurry as I used my iphone for the pics

A photo of the rest of the eyeliners in case you are interested on how they look like. Essence is a Eurpoean brand that just entered into Singapore's market and it's highly recommended for super affordable cosmetics. The eyeliner pen that I got was only S$5.40. I was so tempted to get the nail polishes as well but I managed to refrain myself =)
