Mary Kay Samples

Here are some samples I got from my aunt, who is an agent for Mary Kay cosmetics in M'sia.
I think this brand is quite big in the US, not sure about that. You can visit their website here.

Mineral Eye Color in Dusty Lilac

I thought the size would be quite big but when I opened it, it's just as below:

Close up of the samples:

Mineral Eye Color in Denim Frost

Mineral Eye Color in Cinnabar

Mineral Eye Color in Moonstone

Mineral Cheek Color in Sunny Spice. Looks quite dark, no?Sorry I forgot to do the swatches. Should I do another post on it? Are you guys interested to see?

Side note, some gifts I got from my colleagues for Christmas. I wonder why are they all in purple? I've never told them I like purple though. Funny! In fact, I like pink. =) Maybe I give out the vibes that I am a purple kind of girl.

From left, Marks & Spencer's Hand & Body Lotion in Passion Flower, Gap Dream Body Spray & Elizabeth Arden Green Tea Exotic EDT Spray. I especially love the EA spray. Such a lovely smell =)

World of GWPs

Sorry for the delay in posting. Had a terrible Christmas eve =p I was supposed to return to M'sia on eve night but the Causeway was super jam packed! I had to u-turn and the whole journey took me 4 hours just to get from Bugis to Woodlands and back to Bugis. Boo! Anyway, I'm safely home now in M'sia.

Moving on to the magazines GWPs that i mentioned in previous post. Here they are!

Cleo magazine came with 3 masks

Chic magazine came with a Julie Hewett lip balm.

The color looks orange but it's colorless when applied

L'Officiel came with a miniature fragrance from Lulu Catagnette and a mobile phone charm.

Cute bottle but so-so smell.

Nonno with Suzy's Zoo fluffy pouch.

Spring with Hello Kitty make up bag! <3

I did some hauling at home here in M'sia. Shall try to post it soon. Enjoy Boxing Day sales if there is any at your place. =)

Merry Christmas!

Hey all. Long time no post. Work has been holding me up and was busy doing Christmas shopping as well. Hehe. I jumped on the bandwagon and got the Esprique Precious Illuminate Fantasy Collection. =) It was retailing at S$48 at BHG Bugis, quite a good deal me thinks. I guess most of you must have seen the collection on other beauty blogs.

I got my mom a set of the Pleasures perfume from Estee Lauder. It came with a body lotion but I didn't take a picture of it. Also got my dad a perfume, he loves perfume. He can finish using a bottle in average 2 months time. There was a promotion at the Davidoff counter, a new perfume called 'Silver Shadow' or something like that retailing at S$69 for a 100ml bottle. The SA was kind enough to include these samples below for me. =)

From left, JLo Glow, JLo Deseo, CK Eternity

From left, CK In2u, JLo Live Luxe and JLo Live.

When I was going through my stuff, I found an unopened eyeshadow that I got from Etude House, Petit Darling Eyes in PK002 Snow Pink, maybe like a month ago. LOL, treasures I have that I don't know about. On the right is the Majolica Majorca Honey Pump Gloss in BE211.

The color looks yummy and it's discounted at S$6.90 from the original price of S$9.90.

However, the texture is quite thick and sticky. Nude with shimmers.

Lovely packaging of the Etude House ES

It has four little hearts imprinted on it, can you see?

Swatch with flash

Without flash. You can't really see the pink color but in real life it's really nice.
Side tracking, a lovely little note book i bought from Forever Friends.
I'll be posting more later, about some GWPs i got from magazines. Stay tuned! =)

The ingredients

Some nail polishes:

The color is clearer under camera flash, olive green on the left and shimmery beige on the right.

Sorry I have not done any swatches of them yet. I'll try to use them this week and take some photos for your viewing pleasure. =) My total purchase for all these stuff came to around S$ 20, which is cheap!

On a side note, my colleague helped me to buy this Absolut Vodka Raspberry from the airport for only S$26.10! Of course i won't be drinking this alone, it's actually meant for pre-Zoukout. =D
My cousin came to Singapore from Australia and brought me these handmade Christmas cookies.

Look at the broken snowman =( These are all made by her. You can go check out her website.

Some Tim Tam and chocolates. Yummylicious!
