Simple NOTW

Happy Tuesday! I know Thanksgiving is coming soon in the US. We are also having a holiday this Friday, which is Hari Raya Haji, a festival for the Muslims. I'll be going home to Malaysia, yay! Hope I can go shopping but my pocket seems a bit

Here's my simple NOTW using a peachy red (i don't know how to describe this color) brandless nail polish. It came with a make up case that was given to me from a friend as a past Christmas gift. I think it is from Markwins? Not so sure about that.

Ending my post with a view from my room.

Nice sunset, no?

My HG Cleanser

Hello..It's Saturday but sadly i'm working again! I even need to work tomorrow. =(

Anyway, I wanted introduce you to my HG cleanser, which i've been using for a couple of years now. In between, I did change to other brands but my HG is still the best.

Clarins Gentle Foaming Cleanser with Cottonseed

The description on the box

This is a new packaging/formula which was launched i think early of 2009? Previously it's just a gentle foaming cleanser withOUT cottonseed. The one that i use is for normal to combination skin. It is not drying and really cleans the face. As compared to the cleanser from Lancome, Clarins' is so much better. Love it!

As I have really bad skin, I need to go for my monthly facial to ensure it will not get worse. When I was in my teens, i had a bad case of acnes. This left scars on my face which are still visible now. My face also have lots of freckles which i am very worried about. Nowadays, i mostly get blackheads and whiteheads on my face, especially when i am stressed or tired due to work. The place i go to for my indulgence is Adonis. It's a local brand in Singapore and have expanded to other countries like Malaysia and Hong Kong.

The facial comes in packages that you can purchase e.g. 10 times, 20 times, 30 times, etc. One thing which i don't like about them is that the beauty consultant always persuade you to take an expensive package or buy their products. Unfortunately, i have a soft heart and did buy some stuff from them. -_-'''

Phyto Mask and Phyto Serum

According to the BC, these range can help to even my skin tone, lighten my freckles, etc (which i can't really remember). I really hope it will do all the magical things to my face but one thing i can say is that Adonis is really suitable for my skin. The ingredients are usually plant based.

As i was in Vivo City, thought of dropping by MAC to have a look and went home with something.

House of Mirth Deep Lip bag!

It consists of a Dazzleglass, Lip pencil (Cedar)& a Lippy.

I love the bag, it's pink~

Lippy in Fantasia

Dazzleglass in Get Rich Quick. How can i get rich quick? I've already spent some dough on this. Hoho..

Happy family of lippies!

Christmas is near and i got some tumblers from Starbucks as Christmas gifts. =)

I actually finished this post only on Sunday night.. =p

Aloha! How's your weekend so far? Mine was good. Had some good partying last night. =) Here are some things that we all love, beauty products!

Pupa 4EYES Pallete in 03

Swatches in natural light

elf Luscious Liquid Lipstick in Baby Lips. The color looks wonderful in the tube but i have not swatch it so, it's still questionable. It came in a twistable tube, which is usually used for glosses. Nice!

Some make up brushes from Grobi. I dont know what brand is this, anyone has any idea?

It has 5 brushes and 2 powder puffs

FreshKon color lenses. I got it at $50 for 3 boxes, usually it retails at $20+ per pair.

I have very very bad eyesight! -7.50

My FOTN for partying. It's a bit subtle, i was trying to go for a more dramatic look but unsuccessful. Didn't have enough time to do more.

Sorry about the messy hair. Also, have not put on any lippy before taking the photo. This should have been an EOTN?

A closer look at the eye shadow. The palette i used is the Givenchy it. =)
Mascara is from Maybelline, Volume Express Hypercurl.

Actually, i'm having some infection on my right eye. As you can see, the eyelid is swollen as compared to the left. Boo. It is better if i do not put on any make up or contact lens, it'll help my eye to heal faster..but alas for the love of beauty and my vanity..

Hope you enjoyed reading my post. Bonne nuit!

Random Haul 2

Sorry, wanted to post this on Sunday but forgot about it. >.< Here are some magazines that have great GWPs. Firstly it's Amica, only Kinokuniya has this GWP.

It came with perfume samples by Narciso Rodriguez.

InRed (Jap magazine) came with a Tsumori Chisato tote bag. The print on the tote is too cute!

Moving on to some buys from Watsons, my favorite store.

I finally bought a good eye make up remover, from Maybelline. It is pretty effective as compared to Missha but Fairy Drops mascara is really stubborn. It won't budge and i need to apply at least twice of the remover to get it off. The remover works well with Maybelline mascara though. Also got a lippy. Have not done a swatch of it yet.

ZA have a two way foundation set that came with 2 refills, a casing and a heart shaped pouch.

The casing is really sweet and kawaii. You can see my camera's reflection on it. =)

On a side note, some tid bits i got. Jagabee purple potato!

Sorry again for the short post. It's really late now and i need my ZZzzZZ. Nite nite!

Random Haul

Hello..long time no post! As usual, have been busy with work. Clocking in almost 12 hours every day in the office, especially if it's beginning of the month. Anyway, let's forget about that. We shall move to something we are all interested haul!

I bought some stuff from Sasa Bugis. My main intention going there is actually just to browse around but...always end up with some purchases.

Sasa Sparkling Jelly Eyeshadow in 01 Shimmer Gold:

It is not too sparkly but i guess it would be a good base shadow? I don't have any gold eye shadow before. Am wondering what color to pair it with. Shall do some experimentation. The texture of the shadow is not really jelly-like. When you touch it, it's really soft and kind of creamy but not as creamy as cream shadow. You get what i mean? haha

Also got some masks from Skinlite as it was having a 'buy2 get 1 free' promotion. From left: Refining Herb, Green Tea Essence and Royal Jelly Essence. It is only $1.95 for 1.

Something interesting i saw: Repair Foot Pack! It's like a mask for your feet. Also $1.95 for 1. Can give this a try as i have really dry feet and cracked heels.. =(

Beauty Labo Leave-On Treatment Gel for colored hair. I have used this before and it is kinda effective. Of course it is not comparable to Kerastase or other professional hair care brand but i am on a budget, so gotta watch my pocket!

Cute bottle

Traveling beauty kit:

Came with a lot of stuff, a mirror, big tooth comb, toothbrush, face towel, 2 empty bottles, 2 little containers and of course a pouch. Only $3! Initially wanted to get the bottle only, it already costs $1.55 for 2 bottles. This so much more worth it. =) Btw, the bottles are meant for the excess essence from my face mask (got this tip from Pris).

Face wash sponge

Whew..that was quite a lot of random stuff but all beauty related. I have 'burnt' some more cash today. Got some stuff from Watsons and Kinokuniya. Shall post it in a while!
