It's been great but...

Hi Friends!! This will be my last post here on this beauty blog. I am still makeup obsessed but i've been finding it too hard to keep with reviews and whatnot. I don't want to be a beauty blogger and then slack off with the details because I know that some people really rely on blogs for recommendations, tips and news etc etc :)

I've had soooo much fun maintaining this blog and I've met soooo many great people and REAL beauty gurus. You girls have taught me soooo much and inspired me sooo much so I really want to thank you all for letting me be part of this whole beauty blogger clique :D It's been awesome :))

I will still be moving to if anyone cares :D There will be occasionally post on makeup but mostly just snippets of my thoughts on a certain product ( no reviews or swatches)

Talk to you girls soon :D

Recent Haul: Jill Stuart Blush

I've been lemming this blush ever since I saw this girl using it in the bathroom at a mall in Hong Kong. At first I thought it was too expensive for a blush so I didn't get it, but the next time I was in Hong Kong, I couldn't resist anymore. *sigh* I wish I had willpower, because the blush isn't that great. In fact, it kinda sucks. It's chalky, goes on streaky and not that pigmented. In short, I paid $$$ for the packaging- which is the only thing good about this blush. It's soooo beautiful! And how handy is the attached blush brush??

How gorgeous is that??


Pretty huh? Too bad it doesn't go on pretty :(

Review: Revlon Colorstay Foundation Combo/Oily

For many years, I've been searching high and low for a foundation that:

A. Matches my skintone
B. Is long-wearing
C. Feels weightless on my skin
D. Wont clog my pores and break me out
E. Wont cost me too much money
F. Looks natural
G. Wont look streaky and cakey

At last, I've finally found it. Yes, ladies I'm talking about Revlon's Colorstay Foundation. Wow, what a superb product. I've tried countless foundations over the years from MAC, Everyday Minerals, Shiseido, Covergirl and Bare Minerals but I have to say that this is hands down the best I have ever tried. I'm so completely satisfied that I don't have the urge to try other high rated one from makeup forever, Nars and Dior.

Okay, enough blabbing and on to the pictures :D

What I used

Haul: Shu Uemura, Essie, Seche Vite, Clarisonic & more Unii Palettes

August has been a very successful shopping month. Granted some of these were ordered last month, they all got to me this month :)

Seche Vite & Essie Nailpolish in Sew -Psyched and Lilalism - Finally caved and got the Seche Vite after reading a ton of beauty bloggers rave about it :) Will review if it lives up to it's reputation :)

In a September issue of Life & Style magazine

Shu Uemura M Beige 821- My eyelids are darker than the rest of my face and since this beige is very close to my skintone, this helps even everything out-giving my whole eye area a brightening effect. This is my first Shu Uemura eyeshadow and I love the texture, pigmentation and finish. Now I want all the shades..OH NO!

Unii Palettes. I love them so much, I ordered 2 more palettes- in pomegranate and snow. A little excessive I know, but seriously, they are awesome!

Clarisonic MIA --SOOOOOO excited about this purchase. I will post a review after I really test it out. Probably after a month :D

PS: I've gotten a couple beauty related questions on Formspring and I'm so happy about it! Feel free to ask me more questions :)

NOTD: Orly's Cashmere Cardigan

I'm usually a OPI whore but I'm starting to LOVE Orly nail polishes. The selection in Marionnaud ( Mall of Asia) is massive and I'm tempted to buy all the pastel colors. They are soooo beautiful to look at and I want it all!!

Don't you just love the name?

Tell me that isn't the most gorgeous color ever!

PS: I'm proud that it turned out pretty good considering I painted my nails after midnight and I was getting sleepy! I guess I had to concentrate more! LOL
