Beauty Goodies

31Mar12

My sis just came back from her Taiwan trip, which means new beauty goodies for me :D She bought quite a lot of sheet masks (me like!)... surprisingly no makeup at all.

SexyLook Hello Kitty Masks

Platinum + White Rose Brightening Double LiftingPink Cherry Moisture Double Lifting, Amethyst Polyphenols Hydrating Double Lifting Mask.

cute!

***ingredient lists***

 

My Beauty Diary Masks

Chocolate Truffle, Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing

***ingredient lists***

I only chose these few, since I've the others she bought. Wanna try 'em all soon! :P

 

I bought this Essence Nail Art Express Dry Drops coz it's just a fraction of the price of Seche Vite. I think it was $3.90 (8ml) if I remember correctly. Hope it works well...

 

The dark colored one (Anna Sui Lip Gloss R 550) looks not bad on me, me thinks :P

Here are the swatches of R 550 & C 302. They aren't too sticky, which sits comfortably on the lips. Pretty moisturizing, I would say. Ooo btw... they've the signature Anna Sui rose scent. Me loves!

 

Goodies I received for reviews and thru' random giveaways...

Talika Cream Booster, fake lashes, Peripera lippie, Mavala lip gloss set + nail color set, Sasatinnie new makeup products, Snail Cream (!!)

Stay tuned for the upcoming reviews! (:

I was cravin' for ru rou fan (Taiwanese Stewed Pork with Stewed Eggs on Rice), thanks to this current idol drama I'm watching -> "Calling for Love 呼叫大明星", featuring Mike He 贺军翔 and Charlene Choi 蔡卓妍.

Hmm.. I still crazy over "Secret Garden" though. I'd finished watching and it's seriously the best Korean drama I'd ever watched! Hyun Bin's acting skill is awesome! He's not just a pretty face :3 Watch it, and you'll get what I mean. You'll be so in love, like I do!

Watch this special episode of "Secret Garden", thanks to Jones's great find! The top 10 scenes, especially the no.1..

Beef & tendon kway teow.

Beef & tendon noodles.

We ordered sets which came with bubble red milk tea, very disappointing taste :/

Other than the drinks, the food tasted great! The meals come with sides as well. We ordered different ones to try out. This is the squid dish, forgot the exact name :x

Braised pig's large intestines. Yummy!

Braised pork knuckles (boneless). Very fatty and sinful but taste oh-so-good! teehee~

Ending this post with this photo of cute Lightning McQueen. Thanks for reading (:

Lovin' Bella Bamba (LOTD) & My Lemmin' for Guerlain Blush G Serie Noire

05Mar11

Hmm.. I've been haulin' on blushers recently, namely drugstore AND counter brands. Yes, I do know that I've one face. BUT I'm pretty sure many of you are "guilty-as-charged", no? (x

Some time ago, everyone was tweeting about this particular blush which arouse my curiosity then. The "want" in me grew day by day, and I'd been thinkin' about it 24/7. Nah, I ain't kidding =.= And so, I decided to order it online since it's much cheaper @ US$28. Now, I do understand why ladies are literally goin' gaga over this latest blusher from Benefit.

BELLA BAMBA, anyone?

The color is mostly described as a 'beautiful watermelon pink' and a 'brightened medium pink with pale gold shimmer-sheen' (by Temptalia).

Here's a swatch of Bella Bamba. Aww.. See the pretty gold shimmers! It's pigmented enough for an intense look, and works just as fine for a softer blended look.

Super close-up photo which shows how beautiful Bella Bamba is on my cheeks AND erm.. my horrendous-looking PORES too! EEKS~

Argh.. I wished I've perfect skin.. I wished.. *dreaming away*

My eye makeup using MAC pigments..

My real lashes, FYI (;

Just one mascara is needed and of coz, do CURL lashes beforehand (using Koji No.73 lash curler). Hmm.. My bottom lashes are kinda pathetic though T^T

Eyes:

  • Lioele Artist Auto Eyebrow #3 Grey Black
  • TFSI
  • NYX 10 Color Eyeshadow Pallet - The Runaway Collection 03 Champagne & Caviar
  • MAC Melon Pigment
  • MAC Gold Dusk Pigment
  • Anna Sui Eyeliner Pencil WP 900
  • ZA Cutie Curl Volume Mascara

 

Lips:

  • Anna Sui Rouge S 672

Face:

  • MAC Select SPF15 Foundation NW20
  • Palgantong Theatrical Loose Powder
  • Benefit Bella Bamba

 

 

Before I end this post, I MUST show y'all my current lemmin' - Guerlain Blush G Serie Noire! Always on mind nowadays. HOW?

A pink AND coral lover's dream that is. See how pretty the colors are! 4-in-1 somemore..

And so, I swatched this beautiful blusher @ Sephora Ion. I left without buying.

What do you think? Have you bought this blusher? If not, will you buy it.. at $71?

    Mini Pre-Birthday Celebration + LOTD: Jaded

    31Jan11

    It was a mini pre-birthday celebration at a restaurant/bar, located at Boat Quay.

    The Dallas Cheesecake. An all-time classic favourite. Cheesecake topped with fresh strawberries and sauce$10, on the house btw.

    And so, we were at Dallas.

    Chocolate Brownie. Moist chocolate brownie with a big luscious scoop of vanilla ice cream. $10. I thought I tasted rum =.= Oh well, the ice-cream was de-li-cious :d~

    I didn't really like the strawberry margarita. The one at Cafe Iguana is seriously heavenly and I love happy hour deals ! Best margarita I've had so far !

    We had the Dallas PlatterA combination of Dallas wings, chicken and cheese quesedillas, salt & pepper calamari. $30 for 4 pax.

    Cheese quesedillas were pretty good. My 1st time eating these. There's salsa sauce, the greenish thingy is avocado sauce and dunno-what sauce x:

    Salt & pepper calamari tasted good but personally, I think Modesto's ones tasted better.

    Hmm the chicken wings look rather normal but in fact, they tasted much better than I expected. Looks are deceiving eh.

    Baby Back Berry (Full Rack) $32. Slowly braised pork ribs served with red cabbage slaw and potato wedges.

    Not bad. The meat was soft and tender. I must really say that I do love the berry sauce, interesting mix of sweet and savoury taste :d~ The portion was just right for us.

    Classic Beer Battered Fish and Chips. $23. Slices of white fish dipped in beer batter and fried to golden brown. Served with red cabbage slaw and Dallas Fries. Very normal, didn't WOW me at all.

    Overall, a rather good place to chill and relax.

     

    Some camwhorin' photos we took.

     

    :

    :

    :

     

    My LOTD using L'oreal Chrome Intensity Eye Palette (Timeless Green). And, did you actually notice the change in my hair color ? Yes, black now.

    I used the white as the base, green on the eyelid, black on the outer eyelid. Black and brown to fill my brows :p

    Eyes:

    • L'oreal Chrome Intensity Eye Palette (Timeless Green)
    • L'oreal Paris HIP Color Chrome eyeliner (Black Shock)
    • Anna Sui Eyeliner Pencil WP 900
    • Kiss Me Heroine Make Long & Curl Mascara
    • Sasatinnie Super Dolly Powerful Curling Mascara - Black
    • Maybelline Perfect Concealer 01

    Face:

  • The Face Shop Pure Blossom Shimmering BB Cream SPF15 PA+
  • Lioele Real Crystal Powder Pact no.2
  • Alobon Baked Blusher no.03

  • That's all if you don't wanna see any more of my camwhore photos (:

    Jaded, pretty much.

    LOTD: Almost Nude + Dinner @ Kko Kko Nara

    28Jan11

    Just neutral colors used.

    I didn't use black eyeliner as well. Very work appropriate, great for dating *grins* and when you don't feel like having fancy colors (think blue, green, purple, etc) on your eyes *duh*.

    The whole look, is well, natural in a sense. You can safely skip the colored lenses, really.

    What I used ?

    • Sana Naginata Eyebrow 03 Honey
    • Stila Kitten e/s
    • Rimmel 007 Cafe Latte Palette
    • Anna Sui Eyeliner Pencil WP 900
    • Kiss Me Heroine Make Long & Curl Mascara
    • Skin79 Absolute Total BB Cream SPF37 PA+++
    • Lioele Real Crystal Powder Pact no.2
    • Shu Uemura Glow On Blush - Sienna Marble

     

    Scroll down all the way if you're more interested in food than my camwhorin' photos. Hahas !

     

    :

    :

    :

     

    Went to Kko Kko Nara, located near Tanjong Pagar MRT station. Oh, they're famous for their fried chicken btw.

    Dinner opening hours start at 530pm and we were their 1st customers ! See -> nobody at sight.

    Stoned look coz I was SUPER HUNGRY !

    Hmm the ventilation of the place wasn't so good. It's inevitable that we'll smell of Korean food after which =.=

    Side dish, I forgot what is this ._.

    ??, cucumber, kimchi.

    Simply no regrets ordering this kimchi soup with pork ! Delicious to the max and very filling too ! There's mushroom, broccoli, tofu, onion, kimchi and belly pork slices :d~ Just add $5 for a bigger serving. The soup is so good that we literally finished every single bit, no kidding ! Heavenly, divine~

    Rice set which comes with fried egg and the round thingy I dunno what izzit =.= Looks like luncheon meat eh.

    And so, fried chicken is their specialty. At 1st, it did sound pretty weird to me coz I'll think of KFC (Kentucky Fried Chicken) instead. We ordered the soy garlic sauce fried chicken. Guess how much this dish cost ? $20++ !! Freaking expensive !! BUT damn freaking delicious as well !! Imagine paying $5 for a chicken wing. DOTS. It's best to visit Kko Kko Nara during lunch time coz they've food items that ain't available during dinner time. PLUS the price of food items are cheaper during lunch time !

    Thanks for reading !

    [11.01.11] Celebration Dinner @ Palm Beach Seafood (One Fullerton) + LOTD: Vampish Not

    27Jan11

    What did you do on 11.01.11 ?

    That day night, I went for my agency celebration dinner @ Palm Beach Seafood (One Fullerton). Thanks Carey (my manager), for the treat !

    V54, CAA.

    Love the night scenery.

    Same wide smiles ^^

    (Photos with dates, credit to Shannon, my dear gf in pink )

    I used my camera to take only a few pathetic photos eg. this. Hahas xD

    Most of the food items were pretty much disappointing.

    My favorite dish, the soup was really super tasty !

    Yum yum :d~

    Crab feast: Double-Baked Crab, Chili Crab and Black Pepper Crab. The most drool-worthy one is the Award-winning Double-Baked Crab.

    Dessert time. Fruits galore: mango, jackfruit, mangosteen, longan and i-dunno-what-izzit-called =.=

    My LOTD was very simple, since I didn't want to do smoky eyes.

    I used the Rimmel 007 Cafe Latte Palette I won from Faezah.

    Swatches above are without base, below are with TFSI as base.

    The brown is reddish which looks kinda vampish. I applied rather lightly which makes the look more "friendly" ? The colors look dull and boring but actually they're not. I do like the colors pretty much.

    What I used ?

    • Sana Naginata Eyebrow 03 Honey
    • Too Faced Shadow Insurance
    • Rimmel 007 Cafe Latte Palette
    • ZA Cutie Curl Volume Mascara
    • Silkygirl Silky White Lightening Liquid Foundation 01 Ivory
    • Lioele Real Crystal Powder Pact no.2
    • Shu Uemura Glow On Blush - Sienna Marble
    • L'oreal Super Liner Black
    • Anna Sui Eyeliner Pencil WP 900

    We had Bakerzin Sweet Pleasure, a pretty delectable hazelnut chocolate layered cake dessert. Savored every single bit.

    Love these oh-so-delicious Baked Chicken Wings ! Best dipped with the sauce provided. Heavenly, I tell you ! :d~

    "Superstar" Day (Food + LOTD: Purplicious Princess Fantasy)

    15Jan11

    After the Bio-essence event ended, I went to meetup with my gf. Initially thought of just going for some caffeine fix at Coffee & Toast (Citylink Mall). We somehow ended at a place where we shouldn't be x:

    No, not KFC. We went to Chicking (Marina Square). Jessie recommended this place as the chicken meat is tender and juicy :d~ YUM YUM ! And not oily, I like ! We shared the 2pc chicken meal as we did have lunch. Umm this was a mini tea break LOL

     

    The meal consists of chicken ribs (her favorite), chicken drumstick (my favorite), whipped potato x 2 & ice lemon tea. $6.50 but we paid only $5.50 coz got discount coupon :p

    KFC, Popeyes, Arnold's, Chicking. Which one you prefer ?

    Chicking whipped potato has a buttery taste which I like. BUT I don't like the brown gravy. Luckily, Jessie's preference is exact opposite xD

    A few hours later, Kelvin picked ups up and drove us to Golden Mile Food Centre for dinner.

    I had the famous Chung Cheng Prawn Mee (dry). Generous serving indeed for just $3 ! See the amount of chilli o.O There's prawn, pork ribs, sliced eggs, tau pok. Not the best I'd eaten so far. The soup was pretty good (refillable somemore). I still Beach Road Prawn Noodle House !

    Jessie's favorite famous 91 Char Kway Teow, which I don't really like much. Rather healthy coz of the veggies added, without pork/lard sounds so wrong =.= I still prefer the sinful version with lotsa pork/lard x:

     

    :

    :

    :

     

    Camwhore time :3

    On my face:

    • Bio-essence Platinum BB Cream
    • Lioele Real Crystal Powder Pact no.2 (sparingly on eye area only)
    • Muji Pink Swirl Blush

     

    On my eyes:

    • Sana Naginata Eyebrow 03 Honey
    • Too Faced Shadow Insurance
    • Kiss Me Heroine Make Long & Curl Mascara
    • Sasatinnie Super Dolly Powerful Curling Mascara - Black
    • CandyDoll Highlighter - Marshmallow Purple
    • SMH e/s - Ultra Violet
    • Ed Pinaud Magical e/s No.05
    • Etude House Eye Glow Pencil 2
    • Anna Sui Eyeliner Pencil WP 900

     

    On my lips:

    • Nature Republic Age Slick Dual Secret Lip Color & Gloss 04 Coral Pink

     

    I like that it's non sticky and gives my lips a fuller look. I love this pink on me and the awesome shimmers It stays on pretty well and my lips did feel moisturized. No annoying scent. The downside is none other than the rather bulky packaging. That's about it. Thanks for reading (:
