[] Pink Rosey Champagne [] ~~~~

Hey everyone;
First of all I wanted to THANK every one leaving me really kind and nice comments...
Didn't expect so many of you leaving me nice comments for my posts =D
thank you thank you thank you thank you all ~~~~^__^
Well I'm back with a FOTD and some reviewing.~~~

Here's the products used:
- Estee Lauder Double Wear Light in intensity 1
- Laura Mercier Mineralise Foundation SPF15 Real Sand
- Nars blush in Oasis
- Nars Laguna bronzer
- Lavshuca Eyebrow powder in LB-1
- Mac browset in Beguile
- Fibrewig mascara
- Benefit lipstick in Lala land
Here's a picture of the Nars Oasis blush. From the website it's described as pink champagne colour. It is kind of true but it has a mauve undertone with chunky glitters. OK If u DON"T like glitters.. I think this blush won't suit u unless u use MAC 187 brush the application will probably have the least amount of glitter/shimmer on your face.
Check out that Glitter. But it's a really nice colour. Gives a warm cheek and quite natural. A really really good winter colour. not so much of a summer colour though.

So the next thing I want to share with every one is the Laura Mercier Mineralise Foundation powder SPF15. I've been using this for about a months now. Remember How I had the Prescriptive Mineralised Foundation?? I thought that was good but it's a bit too dark for me. because it oxidised a bit on me. I read a few reviews.. I came across this one.

This foundation is the best mineralise one i've tried so far. I tried Everyday Mineralise (EDM), Prescriptive, Mac's MSF natural and this one. This has a really nice packaging. Has a shifter you can close if you decide to bring it travelling. The powder is finely milled. NO cakey-ness NO matter how many layers you put. with EDM i found that it will cake.
And When my face gets oily mid day, It looks natural... The powder has some shimmer in it which gives you that GLOW...... healthy skin GLOW without making you look all OILY and yuk.
Fuzkittie Had a post on this before. The coverage i'd say light to medium but buildable. oily control is SOSO not great but has some oil control. No break outs..... The application is just like any other mineralised foundations. Buff in with kabuki brush.
If you want, you can use it as a setting powder. So just lightly sweep it on. I use it semi buffed. I use a kabuki brush but I don't fully buff it in.

Here's a swatch. Top half of my hand has no poweder... so it's matte. the bottom half is applied with the powder.. You can see that sheen it creates.. HEALTHY skin.. LOVE LOVE LOVE.

I high recommend this. I mean seriously. Save your money trying all other stuff. This one is the one.. Atleast for me It is. I can see my self actually finishing all that powder. while the other ones will be sitting in the draw waiting for me to use them LOL.
Hope you like my new blush...... =D
P.S: I got a pharmacology exam coming up.. all those drug names and mechanisms is making me crazy............... wish me luck..... and have a great weekend.. BACK to study.>__<

[]Perfect Brow []~~~

Hey all.
Just fulfilling a request today by Jo. I was asked to show how I do my brows. Well I thought I might as well include some magazine scans as how the professional people does it.

Sorry that this is in Chinese but the pictures are quite clear and understandable.
[] You can click to enlarge the pictures[]

Brows are quite important I think, because they shape your face and different brow shapes give people different impressions. So it's best to have a natural and tidy brow so you look more awake and defined.
This picture above is how I do my brows. basically the same. I first decide what kind of shape of eye brow I want, I just follow the natural hair line for my brow. Trim off the access long hairs. DO NOT SHAVE UR eye brows to SUPER short or non existent. Unless you want to TOTALLY reshape ur brow.. it will look super un-natural ><

After you plucked away unwanted hair and trimmed ur brow so they are neat. Then you apply ur eyebrow powder. Light colour for inner brow near the nose bridge. and Darker colour towards the end. and blend in so that it looks natural.

Then I set my brow with brow set. and good to go ^___^

The next few pictures is for people with different eyebrow shapes and as to how to fix them.

The picture below shows how to do your brow if u have very faint brows to begin with.

The next picture is for people with dark/thicker brows.

THe next picture is for brow corrections.
the next picture is for uneven toned brows where one is lighter than the other.

The Next picture is for 2 weird shaped brows.

The next picture is for incorrect brow defined shapes. or uneven brows
I personally have Dark harid brows. My natural eye brow hair is quite hard and dense. So I can't really redefined my brow shape. I try to make my brow look a bit lighter ie a dark /medium brown colour so it's matched with my hair. THey said normally your brow should be 2 tones darker than your hair colour.
So all I use Daily is
- Mac Brow Set in Beguile
- Lavshuca's Eye brow set in LB-1

There are many brow items out there. brow pencils, powder, brow gel.
But normally you use a pencil or powder to fill in your brows and use a gel to set ur brow shape.
That's all I can think of. Hope it helps. ^____^
Takes all.. weekend is coming up.. YEAH =D

HauL & Updating ~~~

Hey all;

How was every one's week? I wonder how did every one spend their Halloween?? I had to work but there was a couple of kids came to our home for "trick or treat".. gave them so much lollies and chocolates hahaha. Hope their parents don't mind them having bags and bags of sugar.. LOL

Any ways, I have a couple things I wanted to show you guys. I've been using these two items everyday since I bought.. and all i can say is I"M LOVING IT!!!!...

First is the Shu Uemura's blush duo,colour is in Rhythm.. I think it's like Mac's Dollymix + Nars Laguna in a way. you can use the colours separately one as contour and another as blush, or you can mix the colours together to how ever you like.

The colour is pretty true in these photos, what you see is what you get..

THe packaging is cute, easy for just putting in the makeup bag and reapply through out the day.
One thing though, they don't stay on as long as my NARS blushes, but still pretty good. pigmented so your brush actually pics up the colour. I kind of dislike Mac's Sheer tone blushes.. because it's hard to pick up products on the brush...

Another item that i'm loving now is the NARS Ondine.~~~
Who ever is out there a NARS fan or even eyeshadow fan, you have to go and check out this colour!!!!!.. It's so damn pretty and versatile.. It's a taupe brown with purple undertone. YOu can use it with browns or with purples and even greys.. just so pretty..

It has gold sparkles in it. some ppl review that there's alot fall outs, but It was ok with me cuz I didn't FULLY pack on LOADS of eye shadow.. I use it in my crease or as liner colour. PRETTY.~~~

Here's a swatch.. I'd say the colour in this photo is pretty true compare to real life. and you can see the sparkles in there.
By the way. I cut my hair. LOL. decided to get it cut. so it's not as frizzy and long and annoying HAHAHA
[] USING shu uemura's blush on cheek[]
So here's the result.. I look older actually LOL
A photoshopped GLOWING photo LOL... just mucking around

As for this dog, I came home one day. and he was in the yard playing with my dog LOL... I don't know how he got in our fence. but I brought him back to his owner down the street because he is marking his territory all over our yard....

That's all for today... Hope everyone had a great weekend.............
Take cares

Coffret D'or CM eyes & FOTD

Hi ALL ~~~
Seems like I haven't been updating this blog for a LONG time. I'm sorry. I am trying to find a place to live closer to University so I don't have to spend 1 to 1.5 hour of travelling each way every day.
That's aside, Haul time ~~ LOL I got the Coffret D'or Colour Mixing eye shadow pallete. It was released a while back, A summer orientated pallete. well Summer is approaching in Australia. So I thought might as well =D.
I Picked the colour #1. because it reminds me of the golden beach, the bright sun light. (sound so cheesy). But it is a pretty pallete. shimmery, but not like CHUNKY glitter falling off. But fine silvery particles. I also got the Majorlica Majorca's Honey lip gloss. in BE 211. A pretty shimmery beige colour. Quite moisturising. doesn't feel sticky, but it is a bit thick when it comes out of the tube.
Below: Coffret D'or CM eyes in #1
Below: Swatch on hand, under natural sun light, no flash
Another picture, A bit blurred............. sorry
Below: Here's the things I used for my FOTD.. ~~~
- Prescriptive Virtue Matte Foundation
- Prescriptive Mineral poweder Foundation
- Mac blush in Well Dressed
- Mac Mineralized blush in Daft Pink
- Lavshuca's eyebrow powder
- Mac brow set in beguile
- Coffret D'or CM eyes #1
- Mac technikal liner in graph black
- Fairy Drop mascara
- Mac lipgloss in Prrr
The result:~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~`

I'm in love with this lipgloss Prrr, pretty colour, not in ur face kind of colour at all. just gives that shine and a touch of sexiness LOL..
Also I am amazed as to how my hair turned out. I just tied it into a bum, and when I let it all out, it had that natural wave in it. WOW.. didn't even have to get my iron curler out. LOL

LOL a kiss for you all =D.. the lipgloss is making me wanna do that HAHA.. ~~~

P.S: Hope you guys like this look........ The eye shadow pallete is pretty. very everyday kind of pallete. So can be used while working and still look professional. Take Cares.. Until next time =D

~~[]Blue Dust[]~~

Hey All~~~
Miss you guys.. been busy as usual. no other excuses>< but for the past few weeks... I've been buying things LOL.. and I have SUPER good NEWS!!!!~~~

I think I found my HG foundation.~~~~ It's the Prescriptive Virtual Matte Liquid Foundation and Prescriptive Mineral Foundation/Powder. Been using it for two weeks. No break outs no nothing bad.

I LOVE this FOUNDATION~~~ Great Coverage I would say medium to full coverage. Covers just like Estee Lauder's Double Wear, alot less drying, semi Matte Finish, oil controling all day, no cakeyness. I got the shade in Fresh Cream, when I first put it I was like OMG look like GHOST because it's sooo white I thought SA gave me the wrong shade, but after set with the mineral powder and wait 10-15 minutes. It blends in with my skin tone. and looks like i have FAB SKIN~~~~The Make up is still there after 10 hours day~~~~.. LOVE LOVE LOVE.... Think I can stop Foundation hunting. But I can't wait for Prescriptive's Mineral Liquid to hit Australia. I know it's out in USA already..
The Prescriptive Mineral Foundation/Powder is great, may be not exactly great in oil controlling but great coverage, no cakeyness and I'm So glad that It doesn't WIPE off when my face is oily. With some other foundation, if I go oily and it will come off onto my clothes, phone and blotting paper, tissue.. The Combination of these two is like HG~~~~ HG~~~...

The above picture is Mac's Colour Crafted Collection. Mineralise Blus in DAFT PINK.. I got it because I saw the youtube of lollipop26.. Had to go and get it. LOL

Then I saw another video of Lollipop26, her top 10 blush video.. I had to get this too LOL.. Mac's Powder Blush in Well Dressed.. ~~~ such pretty pink. combined with DAFT PINK.. match made in heaven. this blush gives subtle colour on the cheek, gives just a nice flush of colour. good for everyday use.

Picture Above: Well Dressed Blush

I saw Fuzkittie's Autumn/Winter make up Haul video and she bought her new Lunasol pallete in that dark blue/teal colour.. Such pretty colour it inspired me to do a FOTD with my own twist.

Here's the part of the post that is ACTUALLY related to the post name LOL.
Blue dust ie the eyeshadow colour. LOL

So the eyeshadow use here is Kate's Br-1 ( only the black colour for crease) and Majolica Majorca's in GR-750 (the pink colour as base, the blue colour for all over eyelid) .
