Of Goodies & Gifts... & Nom-Noms!


Just a short update of my not-so-happening life (lol)... Well, I ended my 2011 with a pretty good note...

I won this set of "Clarins must-haves" via Mag (makeupstash) giveaway! This was exactly what I wanted to win! *crazily happy*

Eyeshadow palette, lipstick & blush Oh... and the colors are just what I wished for... hehehe~

Finally had my Ya Kun fix after collecting the Clarins stuff :D

Once a kopi addict, forever a kopi addict! That applies to makeup too (lol).

My craving for Aston's potato salad!

Seriously one of the nicest I've ever tried so far... And it's cheap somemore...

My sis' beef affair, was a pretty good one.

Moral of the story? Try = Buy.

How can anyone resist temptation(s) like this - Dark ferrero!?

Pink Moscato is L♥VE


An impromptu meetup with Angie 

Chill-out @ Spinelli.

I meet her everyday. My lil' sis.

Banana + Expresso = SHIOK!

Nice twist :3

Looks are deceiving.

Belated X'mas gifts from Angie. My sis'.

Love the paperbag xD

Mine. Cherry liquor chocolates & Hello Kitty chopsticks

Skin79 Simple Touch Eyeliner & Skin79 Vital Orange BB Cream now available at Watsons!

And, I received this parcel today! :D

Skin79 festive goodies!

Coincidentally, I did a quick swatch this morning at Watsons.

I think I'll like this BB Cream, based on 1st impression...

Brightening is the word.

Another eye-candy alert!

1st LOTD of 2012; My Favorite Look


My 1st LOTD of 2012 - Smoky Eyes. My favorite kind of look; "VERY ME"!

The makeup tools:

  • Barry M Intense Black Eyeliner Pen
  • Majolica Majorca Customize Sword Cut BR771
  • KATE Deep Eyes GY-1
  • Shu Uemura Make Up Color Palette The Basic
  • Sana Gafixx Matsuge Gatch-ly Mascara
  • Duwop Venom Gloss in Coral Tree


Had a light makeover after Clarins Skin Time... A mix of Instant Light Complexion Perfector 00 Rose Shimmer & liquid foundation (not sure which range though =.=)... To set the makeup, the BA brushed on Loose Powder 01 Translucent. I touched up a lil', using Lioele Real Crystal Twin Cake 02.

Using Barry M Intense Black Eyeliner Pen, I tightlined the upper lashline and extend beyond the lashline. The liner is slightly thicker for my right eye, to balance my uneven eyes. For the lower lashline, I only lined 1/3 of the outer corner and extend beyond the lashline. Make sure that the extended lines meet at the ends.

I applied the darker taupe shade (KATE Deep Eyes GY-1) on the outer-V, then the light pale peach shade on the inner corners (upper and lower lashlines) and the lighter taupe shade at the middle area. Next, I applied the black shade over the lined area (upper and lower lashlines), more on the outer-V.

To highlight the brow bone, I applied P Pink 103 (Shu Uemura Make Up Color Palette The Basic) using a fluffy brush. Use the same brush to blend out harsh lines. For the cheeks, I brushed on P Amber 87 from the same palette.

This is one of my absolute favorites, KATE Deep Eyes GY-1.

I'm not sure if you can still find this in stores, as it is not a new collection.

The beautiful swatches...

I use all the shades except gunmetal gray, for this look.

Another new favorite black eyeliner - Barry M Intense Black Eyeliner Pen.

I got it from ASOS.com, and it's cheap (I got it in a set).

On its own, it retails for £4.00.

The black is pretty intense, and can be used on the waterline (with minimal fading after 3-4 hours).

As the focus of this LOTD is the eyes, I used a light color (Duwop Venom Gloss in Coral Tree) for the lips.

What's your Favorite Look?

Maybelline Event Aftermath & LOTD: BB Face


After the Maybelline event, it's dinner time! Went to Bao Today (Marina Square). Was thinking of having steamboat buffet initially >.<

We ordered not many items to share coz not very hungry? Fried prawn dumplings. Average taste.

Beancurd skin rolls. So-so.

My favorite 流沙包s (salted egg yolk custard buns)!

Love these so much! Taste sooo good :d~

Har gau! These steamed prawn dumplings taste much better than the fried ones IMO.

These siew mai may look blah but actually taste pretty good!

Hmm.. Bamboo Glutinous Rice.. YUMMIER than expected!! Think I was the only one not very keen on ordering this :x

Very tender chicken meat.. Love the super fragrant bits of the glutinous rice! A must-order apart from the custard buns.. Actually, most of the dim sums there are pretty good. Should try others next time. FYI, I prefer this outlet much much more than the 313 one. Satisfying dinner overall :D


We didn't stop eating after dinner.. coz I suggested Geláre for waffle ice cream! It's been ages since I had 'em. Used to go there every Tues without fail.

Me like the lamp hahas!

Me & sis shared Caramel Fudge Brownie/Pralines 'N Cream waffle with hot fudge and fresh cream.

Expensive indulgence :d~ YUM YUM!
