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

 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 =)

Thanks for reading!

Unused Stuff I Found in My Stash!

I was tidying up my make up and beauty stash when I discovered I have tons of unused stuff!

Lookie what I found!
I cannot believe that I have actually hauled so much stuff that I can forget about them. Definitely need to put a stop to buying cosmetics till I have used up my current stash.

Stash includes MAC Technakohl Liner in Auto-De-Blu, Etude House Multi Eye Shadow Brush, MAC Viva Glam Cyndi, Canmake Four Shiny Eyes in 09,

Canmake Gokunobi Mascara, elf Liquid Eyeliner, Waterproof Eyeliner Pen, Daiso Eyeshadow pallette, Kate deep eyes in PU-1, etc.

Guess I'll have to explore these stuff in the coming weeks. I'll show you some swatches in the next post =)

Bangkok Trip

Some photos from my Bangkok trip in January, it was fun and memorable. Hope you will enjoy the photos ^_^

Arriving at Suvarnabhumi airport
Baiyoke Sky Hotel lobby
The famous Erawan shrine
Such a beautiful shrine at Talay Bangkok (al-fresco dining with live band)

Christmas Deco at Talay Bangkok
View from 82nd floor of the hotel

Random photo of the buffet breakfast
Walking towards Chatuchak market!

Local ice lollies with different flavours like Coke, grape, apple, etc.
Only managed to take photos of the pets for sale there, was too busy shopping!
Chicks as pets?

Guess what are these? At first glance, I thought the right platter was soft-shell crab but actually it's cockroaches!

They're fried bugs.

Taking the river taxi like a boss =)

Flower market - Pak Klong Talad
Spot the star fishcake

Taking the river taxi like a local was one experience which I like. It was cheap to travel by boat, cost me about 15 bhat per person. We took the river taxi just to get to the flower market, they sell tonnes of flowers at very cheap prices. 5 stalks of roses only cost 25 bhat!

 Another shopping paradise - Siam Square.
We love Siam Square

Some of our haul

Naraya bags at MBK shopping mall.

It's been 6 years since my last visit to Bangkok in 2006 and it's really great to be back there. It's hot, dusty and crowded but I like it all the same!
