Everyday, I'm editing pictures of my hauls.. I think I spent more than 2 weeks to finish them, with some breaks inbetween. And here is the reason why I'd spent so much time editing them!
The stuffs were bought way back from Nov till now. And so much LOTD and OOTD that I didn't get to post.. oh well, guess if I post too much of my faces, ppl will puke.. hahhax!
I'm getting reaaaaalllly lazy, I don't think i'm gonna name every item here, so if you girls are interested in any of them, just ask! ^_^
links Pics (why i say links? =-=) to enlarge!
Na's recommendation for oily scalp/hair! So i got it the Royal Wind Oil Control Shampoo, with free conditioner at the back~ Not much to comment, it works so-so for me. =)
Ardell Fashion Lashes - 120 Demi: $8.95
Besides Japanese brand lashes, Ardell are also quite popular among the girls in Asia especially China/Taiwan. And most asian girls picked Demi lashes maybe because of their eyeshapes. From Ardell's website, I'm able to find the lashes that suits me by clicking the right category (eg, small eyes, round eyes..)
Their lashes are 100% Human Hair, and that explains why they can only be used a few times. Whats so good about it is that the base of the lashes (the part where it sticks to your lids aka the band) is not made of hard plastic thingy. Its basically transparent glue that holds all the lashes together!
Its soft and fluffy feelin' when I wore them on. ^.^ Likey!!
But no like when I remove them, as the lashes totally flattened out after I put them on table to dry when it was still damp. (Unlike lashes made of plastic!)
The correct method of maintaining it should be, wash/remove adhesive after peeling it off from eyelid, and dry them with towel/tissue immediately(if you do wash them). Air them on table only when the lashes are completely dry, so the curl will remain.
La Roche-Posay Cicaplast : $25.90 -20% (I got it on sales, with 2 free samples given! ^_^)
I'm happy that I'd chance upon Lissasioux's La Roche-Posay Cicaplast review and I must say that I got hold of Cicaplast too on the very day I read it. hahax~
With a little Push from Sophia, I confirmed that I actually NEED Cicaplast. =p
I had rashes on my neck and jawlines and at that moment, my skin was in mid of recovery but still got problems of dry flaky skin when I put foundation on.
So Cicaplast helped me on that. Although the oil bumps still pops up once awhile even with Cicaplast, however it didn't get anymore worst than that.
I also applied it a little over my lips and it felt nice. The edge of my lips are not so dried up and wrinkly feelin' like the usual.
Overall, I will say its very good but not till the extend of being my Holy Grail like what it did for the other ladies. ^_^
Shopping @ NEX.. I went there few times with Jessie, Verlyn, Na (everbluec) and also few times alone.. I got addicted shopping there. ^_^"
I really like this Bourjois eyeshadow pot - ombre a paupieres 05 (Light whitish-pink tone): $19 (-20%). I like the swatch on my hands, it gives a very smooth and nice satin & sheer kinda look. But when its on my eyes, I duno why it makes my eyes look ashy. =_= Probably I'm like, too dark for it? Those who bought this too, do comment!~
Finally, I bought 2-way foundations (my Covermark's running out), one refill from Kose:$57 (usual $60, thanks to Jessie's Isetan card) and another from SANA Natural Resource:$38.90 (-20%, no thanks to Na's recommendation =p~)
Repurchasing my Aqua Label White Protect Sunscreen : $26.90 (It helped alot from making my skin dark/ 'chou tar' from running around under hot sun)
Kose Seikisho Mask White: $35 (with free 5 pc mask! Promo @ NEX)
With help from my friend, Amber who always fly Taiwan every year or 2, I managed to get my hands on Naruko (牛爾 Niu Er's brand) and BeautyMaker (Kevin's brand) products. They are to be bought only online as its not available at the retail stores. I heard that its not that easy to purchase online too, like they need a special card or an account or some sort.
The stuffs shown below belongs to mi and Na's.
-BeautyMaker Color Correcting Eyelid Primer, Aqua Eye Concealer, Magic Concealer (Pen type)
-Naruko Rose & Snow Fungus Class Night Eye Gelly (I keep laughing at the 'Gelly' spelling.. LOLxx)
The shade I chose for my concealers are the medium shade (Beige 粉膚/自然膚色)
A small gift of face spray(?), cos i din order this ^_^"
Now for my Favourite part, Concealer swatches!! (Due to some pics were taken during different time of the day, hence the colour differs...)
I like the fact that the magic concealer is as peachy as MAC studio finish NW25, I now use both to conceal my -hopeless- dark circles. ^3^
And for concealing spots on my face, I mixed Aqua eye concealer with MAC C25 concealer.
I really am in love with the night eye 'gelly' (teehee~). Everytime I apply them on my undereyes, it felt so soothing. It has a rather strong smell of rose.. and kinda mix with lavender too? I can't make out what floral scent it is but it really smells great, smells as soothing as it's on my eyes...
Mmmm~ Eyes eating ice-cream~~~
Again, recommended by Na, I bought the KOSE Junkisei Prime Oil Cleansing. As much as she love it, I too love it. LOLx.. Go read her review here!
One of you might find this very familiar... LOLx.. I bought this Revlon lipsticks for 2010 Onsugar BXP gift exchange. And I couldn't stop the urge of getting more peach pinks lipsticks so I bought the same pair for myself too! LOLx..~
Ohhhh~ At last we come to Sleek Hauls! Another of my favourite buys from the last 3 months of non-stop hauling!
I'd ordered the Sleek Blush in Pixie Pink and Rose Gold through Jo's Sleek spree.
When I tried to open up the case, it was so daaaaarrrrnnn hard to open till it requires me to bring a pair of scissors to ply it open. =_= (imagine I had to do that EVERYTIME i wana use it.. PFFTt..)
And so, I did some work on the lock part. Observe DA Master @ Work!!! kekekex.. (When it comes to technical part, i'm quite good too! lolx~)
FASHION HAULS & What not...
I had been urged, psycho-ed, nagged (or watever you call it) to signup a twitter account. Without iphone, I see no point in creating the account and be able to twit only when I'm back home using my PC. So, I spent $500 (call me crazy!) to get my iphone! Just because of twitter? Neh~ just kidding =p
Nothing related to Beauty.. But I love stationeries since young, esp those that I can personalise!..
I was at Popular Bookstore and there was a jap video advert repeatedly playing and replaying on a small screen. I am drawn to almost anything japanese (and korean now.kekex..) and so, I found this little treasure!~ I have a little planner in my bag which I often update due to my busy work schedules and adhoc appointments (so that I wont forget..=_=")
I would like to get some colourful pens which i can use to draw small cartoons on my planner! hohoho~ childish much? =p Japanese girls are childish anyways. kekekex~
Its called the Uni Style Fit Gel Ink Pens, each refill only for $1.75 and Holder for $2.35.
And again, overdues OOTD, LOTD.. ^_^"
Black crystals hairband: Far East Plaza
White inner top with frilly short sleeves: Overseas
White Short Burn-out Lace Top: Gift from Ariya!
Black Denim Shorts: Overseas
Black Tie-Dye style Leggings: GMarket
Black Ankle PU Buckle Shoes: Overseas
Simple LOTD @ NEX using Loreal Paris HIP Bright Shadow Duo - Bustling (Gold & Brown)
Finally! I've reached the last item of my collective haul~.. This Military khaki green cap : $19 was purchased just few days ago @ City Square. I patron the shop before (Elephant @ Basement - Why is elephant @ basement? Because its too heavy so even if it goes to 10th floor, the ground breaks and it'll fall to the basement. Hahhax!~ I'm just bullxhitting =p~) when City Square just opened and I am loving their caps more, in compare to 77th street's. I think their cap sizes are a little bigger too than 77th St's. (can fit my big head heh)
And that marks the end of my 3 months collective haul... I'm now being a good girl trying not to buy too much things (so far still ok).. Unless I really NEEeeeddd it~ kekekx.. Hwaiting!!
Till then! Cheers! (●♡●)
Product names written and coloured in turquoise were given by its company to me for trial.
Swatches of Foundation Bases:
Estee Lauder Double Wear Light Liquid Foundation in Intensity 2.0 (See available shades here)
HAOJS CC Perfect Repair Cream (BB) Foundation
Due to its taken in dim lighting, the colours might not be accurate. Hence I did the swatch twice on my arm and back of hand.
Estee Lauder Double Wear Light: Yellowish tone. Creamy feel at beginning, starts to turn matt quickly when blended out. Light to medium coverage depending on how much you use.
HAOJS Repair BB: Beige tone. Looks thick but infact very watery when blended out. Somehow brightens up your skin alittle. Very minimum coverage to almost none. Appears to feel like tinted moisturizer. Gives a glossy finish to your skin.
When tissue pressed against foundation:
Estee Lauder...not transfer-proof I must say.
Wherelse for HAOJS, I kind of used more pressure than that of Estee Lauder's in order to get that brown colour stains on the tissue. Infact, more water(or oil?) was captured instead of the foundation colour.
Swatches of Nude to Peachy Lipsticks:
Shiseido Perfect Roughe BE109: My nudest of all my nude lipsticks (can compare with NYX Circe) but its more moisturizing than NYX's
Callas Sheer Coco
BourJois Rough Clubbing Pretty Nude: Has glitters!
Revlon Color Burst Peach
Randon Swatches of Liners & Blush:
Stage Gerbera Blush: Suppose to look peachy... hmm...
Majolica Majorca LE Perfect Automatic Liners: Gotta love the white liner! It kind of reminds me of glow in the dark objects...
And 1 MAC Haul I had totally forgotten about it! And this further adds up to my concealer collection...
Something happened to my dog! Baby went to Martial Arts Federation to learn....
◈◈◈Coming up: ELF Eyelid Primer review, Fashion shot with fashion haul, MM event pics
JL is having 20% discount storewide and card members have further discounts from 4 May - 6 May (3 days only!) I am lucky this time as I am on OFF from work on 4 May!
The things I bought in JL, total damaged count up to $100.44~ Fieewww~
NUDE Facial Cotton 2packs for $5.90 (After Discount $4): I got 4 packs! 150 cottons per pack, so its 300 cottons for $5.90. =)
NUDE 6pc Facial Puff $4.90 (AD $2): Just to say, NUDE is made in Korea. Their quality are good and prices are acceptable. =3
-Scroll down for other stuffs-
From Daiso, I got all things "About Feet", plus 1 sponge cleaner! I didn't get their facial cottons as I think I'd bought enough of NUDE. XD
Just happened to bumped into my ex-boss, Irene, replenishing her stocks in JL at the Olive Organia's shelves. She burged me to get some of her stuffs so I gotten this Promo pack (last set) since i run out of body scrub so may as well give her some business... =D
Olive Organia Body cleanser + Body Scrub $19.90 Promo: When I opened the box of Scrub, out came this little Body+Hand cream! So cute the packaging♡ ^.^
I remembered reading retail_therapy's blog about Phyto, kinda make me thinking "i should try this brand too!" But I ain't gotten treatment cream, I'd gotten a shampoo as my Loreal Elsève's finishing soon, plus I think my oily scalp is getting immuned from that shampoo, so its time to change!
Phyto Paris Sebo-Regulating Shampoo $34 (AD $27.20) : The container is stainless steel! Its look somewhat like a water bottle to me. The smell is not really nice, but not stinky too. It kinda freaks me out when I use it cos 1st, the shampoo water spilled out so fast I nearly poured all the content out of the bottle! 2nd, it was brown in colour, makes me think of of bitter chinese medicine. =_="
So ya, the shampoo is WATER, liquid kind, whatever you call it. It is unlike all the drug store shampoos I had used before. This is my first liquid shampoo! (Stamp Chop Sign♧)
Revlon ColorBurst Lipstick $21.90: The salesgirl says there is 20% discount for this lipstick but I realise in my bill, it didn't deduct. So sad =( However I've gotten a free pouch from them! The lipstick I gotten is in PEACH.
I later realised that they have buy 2 and get 1 free promo (Read the booklet but I've forgotten about it!), I went back to JL and salesgirl says I have to void the whole receipt then the counter will rekey all over again. Looking at the long queue, I gave up. :(
Anyone of you going to buy this lipstick at JL, do update whether you gotten any discounts for it?
Swisspers Dual Cosmetic Tips $3.90 (AD $3.12): I've always wanted a pointed cotton buds so here it is! The container is so cute, can still reuse it in future!
Fasio Hyper-stay Mascara (Magne-plus Curl Long) $22.90 (AD $18.32) : I always liked how Fasio makes my lashes look strong, rigid, super waterproof kinda feeling plus how easily I can apply it to my lashes comparing to MMajolica. And my old Fasio mascara had dried up so I decided to get it since there is discount! =3
♠ Somang Clinic HN Color Hair Bleach
Talking about my ex-boss, it kinda of reminds me that I totally forgotten about the Hair Bleach I bought a year ago in my ex-work place.
I was previously working in Surprisesss (Chinatown Market 3rd level), also a sister outlet of IvyCosmetics.
I used Somang Hair Bleach and Hair Dye and I ♡ them so much more than all other hairdyes (like loreal/Revlon/Garnier and the current Liese) but one thing is that its so hard to bleach and dye hair yourself. You will end up with uneven dyed hair. Worst still if you have a long hair.
I usually ask my friend to help me, she's not a hairstylist or whatever but she so darn good in hairdyeing my hair! I always end up with perfect hair colour! =3
One thing special about Somang Hair Dye is that it has a additional Nutrition Oil that need to be added into the dye content. And it provides a rather big tube of hair mask (in yellow colour, name Kerafix) and not to mention it includes gloves too! (I think some don't provide that)
Somang brand is actually under the same company as Beauty Credit. I think Somang is the mainline of that company but the models they use in Somang is repeated in Beauty Credit. Many people bought Somang's products got confused with Beauty Credit and thought that Somang was a copy brand, but infact BC is under Somang.
My ex-boss brought in Somang Hairdye and Bleach 2 yrs ago, but now it was stopped. Hence this 2 box of Somang Hair Bleach might be the last of Somang products in Singapore (XD~) that is if Beauty Credits' not counted in. Each box is sold @ $13.90 only but BC always sell every item for at least $5 more expensive than my ex-boss sells. If I want to use Somang hairdye again, I might have to turn to BC to get it =( Which is so highly priced...
Nevertheless I must plan a day to use up these 2 boxes of bleach! And welcome back my bleached hair again! \^o^/~ I miss you yellow hair!~
