[] Integrate BE303 []~~~

Hey all
How's every one's weekend?? Hopefully christmas shopping has been complete? I still gota go get some photo frames and print off some old photos.

So today is about the new Integrate BE 303 eye shadow. I got this a while ago from AdamBeauty, haven't had a chance to use it yet. I've been mostly using the Visee Nude Glam in N-2. That one is like my go to eyeshadow for every day look.

So i'm on holidays now, just going out with my Bf and and some other friends for dinner. So I thought I would do a FOTD just to see how this pallete turns out. Nothing dramatic, very wearable. Not too much shimmer, but enough to make it look elegant. If that ever makes sense. HAHAHA

So Here's how it turned out. I don't know why my bathroom light is so BLUE..... no idea why. This is taken under natural light in my bathroom , no flash no special effects.

I'm so lazy these days to put contact lenses on, just glasses will do.
So here's the pallete, Integrate BE303. With flash
Here's a swatch of it. I would say this is really close how it looks like in real life. Some how the camera doesn't really pick up the colour once it's on the eyes. beats me why. may be need a DSLR.
Here's the list of items used for Today's FOTD:
- Estee Lauder Double Wear Light
- Laura Mercier Mineral Power (i'm nearly finished with that)
- Mac Stereo Rose blush
- Lavshuca Eyebrow set
- Mac brow set
- Too Faced Eyeshadow Insurance
- Shiseido Integrate Be303
- Mac powerpoint liner in Duck
- Kissme Active Girl mascara
- Nars Dolce Vita lipstick
This is what it looks like with eyes open
And Eyes Closed, You can see the Sheen and sheer colour of the pallete. Kind of Natural, I added the eyeliner to be a bit more dramatic, If I was to wear it during the day. May be just just shadow by it self. And use the dark brown as a liner. More natural.

That's all for now. Christmas Soon.!!!! Wish every one a Very Merry Christmas......... hehe

[]Kao Curel Sensitive Skincare Range[]~

Hey all
Just going to do a review today. I have been trying out a new skincare set. Just trial size one. you can purchas it from or Ichibankao.
Curel is a sub company of Kao. It's designed for sensitive and dehydrated skin. I had some rash on my face few weeks back. I needed something to calm my skin down. I had little little bumps and also itchy patches. So I tried this range. It claims to have allantoin, ceramide and eucalyptus extracts and also anti inflammatory ingredients to calm the skin down and build up the skin's natural defense.
It is pH adjusted, free from fragrance, alcohol, Allergy tested. But I checked the ingredient list It contains paraben as a preservative. Though very small amount. If you are allergic to paraben may be you should avoid this. Also I looked up online Paraben isn't exactly good for skin either. But as a preservative and small amount it was ok for me. No reactions.

So the skincare trial set comes with four items.
- Make up removal gel
- Foaming cleanser
- Moisturising lotion
- Moisturising emulsion

So here's the makeup removal gel, On my hand I got estee lauder double wear foundation, kissme heorine mascara, Mac powerpoint liner in duck and Mac blankety lipstick. On the top is the makeup removal gel.

Rub it all together for a while it becomes all milky and wipe off with a cotton pad and rinse with water.

And here it is.. all clean. It is pretty good at removing foundations and lipsticks, not really eyemake up.

Wash face with the foaming cleanser the foam is dense. very comfortable to massage on to the face. It doesn't really clean the make up off.

The next step is the moisturising lotion, it has the consistency of water. Not very thick. no smell but very very moisturising. It feels like Hada Labo 's skincare range. But this lotion gets absorbed way faster.

This is the moisturising emulsion.

Abit rubbed in. and after a while it is completely absorbed really moisturising, acts like a barrier to keep all the moisture in. not heavy at all. But it is a bit too heavy for my combination skin in summer. I think it would be great in winter. or for normal and dry skin.
It calmed my skin down, with in a week my bumps and itchy patches are gone. back to normal smooth skin again.
Highly recommended to those who have sensitive skin and dehydrated, but do check the ingredient list if you are really sensitive. But Hada Labo's moisture range is pretty good for sensitive skin too. If you are extra cash to spend. Freeplus by Kanebo is another good one for sensitive dehydrated skin, but a bit more expensive.
That's all for today. Take cares. have a great weekend.

[][]Recent Favourites[][]

Hey all
Some one requested me to do a hair tutorial, I'm not sure how I go about that. Because My hair is permed so after hair wash it's already wavy. but any how I try to explain and show you guys the products I used and things like that.

So today is going to be some Recent Favourites, I was going to do a November favourites but I didn't have the time, and it's mid of December and so can't really call it monthly favourites right?
So any hows... on with the post. Here's the items:

- China Glaze nail polish in For Audrey. Really nice colour for summer, very light fresh and fun. gives a feeling of beautiful blue summer blue sky. LOL

- Estee Lauder Double Wear in Fresco. I really really really like this foundation, I tried Mac studio fix, revlon color stay and other ones I still find this one the best. Not particularly great for dry skin but I have combination skin and It is SUMMER now, SOOO hot out side. this stays put ALL DAY!!! No kidding. I'm a lazy person I hate touch up, The way this make up comes off a bit after a long day is pretty natural NO streaks, No patches, No ugly powdery looking. JUST Great. .. LOVE. Though I think Fresco is a bit dark for me now. When I finish this one I probably will go for Desert Beige. the lighter shade N1.

- Clinique All About Eyes. This is the Original Version not the rich one. I find this really great for summer around eye area, Gets rid of my puffiness, dry lines and etc. I accidentally got it in my eyes once, Didn't sting, just a bit uncomfortable after a few blinks it was fine. LOL silly me.

- Dolce Gabana Light Blue Fragrance. SOOO NICE. smells so fresh on me. Super nice summer fragrance, some ppl say it smells like toilet refresher on them LOL. I donno about that, but ON me It's a very fresh scent to begin with then tones down to a floral type of smell. I think it's quite refreshing for summer.

- Cezanne UV EX Powder Foundation in 02. This foundation is powder form I use it to set the Liquid foundation with a brush lightly dusted. I tried with a sponge before CRAZY coverage. All japanese magazine review it saying it's like number 1 or 2 powder foundation. I think It beats all the big brands. you can buy it from MAKEUPCELEBRITY. free shipping too. the colour 02 is pretty much like NC20 or NC25 ish. I use it for touch up as well I bring it with me. so the case is a bit scratched and stuff..

The next thing I love is mask after shower. GOSH These two My Beauty Dairy Masks are my favourite. Wine Yeast (SAKE) and White Rose mask. Great for hydration and nice cooling effect during those hot days/nights. hehe
Here's a picture of me with the mask and also doing a hair manicure (just leaving the conditioner for longer)..

And here's how the China Glaze Turned out. Fun colour. LOVE. I'm no pro at applying the nail polish.. quite messy job if you ask me. HAHAHA

Take cares..

[][]Sultry Look with Integrate BR-730[][]

Hey all.
Haven't updated for ages. Did some Christmas Shopping for gifts clothes and things. Some times I don't know what to post about. Also I've been watching Smallville. pretty much catching up all episode until now. LOL.

So just thought of a look today. A Sultry look... Not too heavy though. may be semi sultry. So Here it's how it turned out.

So the look is mainly on this pallete. Integrate BR-730 . If you look up posts. This pallete is pretty much like Lunasol Neutral. the Colours are extreme close. Pretty much a Dupe... SO instead of spending so much on Lunasol you can get this one. The difference is that this pallete is more creamy. Lunasol is more powdery and glittery.

Here's the swatch for the palette with no base and no flash under natural light indoors.

The colour turned out pretty true for the photo. compared to real life.

The items used for this look:
- Missha M Perfect Cover bb cream in #21
- Cezanne UV EX poweder in 02 (cheap and nice powder)
- Nars Laguna Bronzer
- Nars Deep Throat Blush
- Too Faced shadow insurance
- Integrate Br-730
- Palgantong Liquid eyeliner
- Mac brow set in beiguile (forgot to put in the picture)
- Mac Powerpoint eyeliner in duck
- Mac Blankety lipstick
- Mac lipgloss in Ample Pink
- Kiss me Active Girl Mascara
- Geo lens in Angel Grey

Here's what the eye makeup looks like up close.
Here's how it turned out. I think it's not as dramatic as I thought it would be.
And Another picture hehe..

Hope you all have fun shopping for Christmas. and thanks giving.
hehe gonna enjoy my Smallville episodes.. .^^
Take cares

[] Visee Glam Nude N-2 []

Hey all
Have been loving the visee Glam Nude N-2. It's such a neutral colour have been using it every day for work and stuff. Saw quite a few ppl's blog talking about this pallete. I mean who can get enough of neutral palletes? you can never go wrong with them. Plus there is different shades of neutrals right? ( comforting my self about buying just neutral palletes)..

So here's what it looks like under the natural sunlight. I took the picture with no flash and pretty much what it looks like in real life.

Here's the swatch on the hand under natural lighting too. no flash. the top white is the cream base and the rest is just power. The cream has a really soft feel to it.. close to butter I would say.

So today's FOTD consist of these items. pretty much what I normally use I would say.
- Estee Lauder's Double Wear ( FINALLY got a pump from MAC.)
- MAC mineralise skinfinish Natural in light medium
- Nars Laguna Bronzer
- Mac Well Dressed Blush ( stain finish)
- Visee Glam Nude N-2 pallete
- Prescriptive concealer.
- Too faced eyeshadow insurance
- Mac brow gel in beguile
- Kissme Heorine mascara

Here I'm using the Contacts Lense of GEO angel grey.. I use to have the Angel Brown Loved that. Look So natural the grey one is not too bad. makes eyes looks SOOO big though hehehe..
This is what the eye makeup looks like. I tried it with false lashes just too see how dramatic false lashes are. I see alot bloggers using them. They are so DRAMATIC..............though they do open up your eyes like a flower......
But I have decided flase lashes isn't my thing. and they are hard to take off and clean. too much hassel. may be because I'm too lazy.... LOL....
Final Picture with no flase lashes.. Arghh~~~ that's better. more me............. ~~
That's all for today. If you are a contact lense wearer, do try the Geo Angel range........ though don't wear it for long period of time might get dry because the water content and oxygen permeation isn't as great. But that being said, it's quite comfortable.
Take cares..~~~~~~~

Hey all~~

Loose Powders and Mineral Makeup is something every one have. Often we think that the finer the powder the better, but it DOES pose a health problem for the users.

There are alot reasons listed on the internet about if mineral make up is really good for us. The ingredient used in mineral make up is good for our skin in terms of the inertness of the minerals meaning there are no chemicals and binders so less reactions towards our skin and skin chemistry.

But the health hazzards concerned with using mineral make up and loose powders is the size of these particles can sometimes be classified as nano particles. when you swirl your brush with the powder you can see fine dust flying around and when you apply to your face, there's a high chance of you breathing in those fine particles.

I did some research, micro sized particles doesn't to as much harm because it won't be small enough to enter the lung's vacuoles but the nano sized particles can enter and hard for the lungs to get rid of them, over time the tissue of the lungs deteriate.

I know this because in lab I work with silica particles for column choromotography. and they make us wear masks because of the dangers of breathing in fine particles. This eventually cause a disease called silicoses which has NO CURE... Click []HERE[] to read about silicoses.

Titanium dioxide is often used in sunscreen SPFs in the cosmetic products, but when breathed in it pose a health hazzard for the lungs and labs have tested to have carcinogenic (cancer causing)effect.

Please Read this Article []CLICK HERE[] about the dangers of powders and mineral make up. I also found another website which lists the ingredient to mose mineral make up brand out there. [] CLICK HERE[] and also []CLICK HERE[]

so my warning is if you are using mineral make up DO NOT BREATH IN.. I have changed all my loose powders to compact powders, applying with a sponge. and also tossed away my loose powders.. Not worth the health risk..

PLEASE PASS ON THE MESSAGE>>!!!!! Post it on your blog to tell every one.. I'm trying to create an awareness about this. people should know about the dangers involved in what they are using on a daily bases.

[] Haul time []~~~

Hey all
I hope every one had a great weekend so far.. I was looking at adam beauty's website the other day. and also some other bloggers and reviews and things. I thought to my self, when we pay for the high end products, is it really worth it? especially in things like eyeshadows and blushes. I can understand that skincare might be a big different but I realise that some drugstore bands do offer great quality products with little $$$ to spend.

So On with my haul. I saw great reviews about the kanebol Freshel moistlift BB cream. SO I thought I would give it a go. Also Kanebo's media products. It's really cheap and great quality product for that price. also got the new Integrate eyeshadow too. just came out recently with their newest collection.
Integrate Heart Eyeshadow in BE-303....
Here's a swatch of the colours, but not a big fan of the glitter pact colour though. the rest I like. not glittery just a nice shimmery sheen to it. and the colours are very subtle good for every day wear.

Here's a look at the Media's eyeshadow in Br-1 (top) and WN-1. (bottom)
Photo taken under natural day light from my window..

Here's another view at it with flash.

Here's the swatches for the eye shadows under natural light no flash. The colour on the photo is pretty close to real life. (No base applied, just bare skin on my hands...)

Here's another photo with flash on. Very pleased with the quality of these eyeshadows.. can't wait to use them...

That's all for today. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

October Favourites[]~~

Hey all

Can't believe it's already november, this year went past super fast. really felt like just a blink of an eye. So today i'm just gonna share my favourite items of the months things that I have been loving this months.
Order from left to right:

1. Clinique moisturising lipgloss. I find it very similar texture to Lancome's juicy tubes, except not as sticky and more moisturising. I got this one from a gift set in the colour 01 Raspberry. I love this... gives your lips that kissable look not too over dazzling. (I don't like lipglosses have chucky glitters.) This one has no glitters and super easy application I don't need a mirror just open the lid, a slanted applicated and just apply. The colour though is not pigmented at all, just a hint of colour on your lips. LOVE~~~ wanna try other colours.

2. Benefit full cream lipstick in Lala land. I got this a while ago, but haven't really been using it because I've been using Rimmel's Airy Fairy. but this one I tried it the other day and love.. seriously my lips but better colour. looks very natural because lipstick colours like Mac Angel, Airy Fairy and that kind of pink looks sexy but not natural. You have to try lala land. I find it very moisturising too. none drying........ My next colour for this to try is No Competition, except they sold out (cry)..

3. This is a Sana make essence eye and lip concealer. Don't be fulled by its name. No coverage what so ever.. But I use it to fill in the find lines and moisturise my under eye area. It works wonders !!!! you have to try it. I apply it under my eyes before the foundation. though it does have a silicone feel to it. It says to have carrot or apple extract, aleo vera and some other stuff in japanese i can't read. It's quite mild and great for under eye area.

4. Coffret D'or beauty essence foundation. the colour is in Oc-C. quite neutral colour, and fits my NC15-20 skin perfectly. though a bit yellow. The thing i love about this foundation is because it doesn't cake up, and gives that healthy radiant glow to the face. It's got very fine shimmer in the foundation, a creamy texture not heavy at all. I should do a review on this to show how good this is. Or have I done a review already?? Though I have to agree that this is more of a winter foundation because it's moisturising. if you have dry skin.. try it. i'm sure you will love it.

5. Dolce & Gabbana Fragance Light blue. This smells DIVINE...~~~First time I spelt it in the store I was like WOW what a fresh scent. then I tried some on my skin. after a while the fresh citrius smell is gone leaves a more floral scent. very summery...... LOVE it.

And last, This was when I was out feeding a pond of fish with bread and asked my bf if he wanted some bread too. LOL........ " would you like some bread??" what a random photo.

Take cares ~~~~ will update soon.
