MAC ARCHIE’S GIRLS COLLECTION

Standard

Hi girls!

Gonna be doing a long post and it’s the long awaited Mac Archie’s Girls Collection. Here i will not be doing swatches because if I do, it will be a very very verrrryyy long post so I’ll be doing a separate one later on. But for those of you who are interested in what I got from this collection, then keep on reading :)

MAC ARCHIE’S GIRLS COLLECTION

As you know, the collection itself is huge. They have this collection separated consisting of Betty’s and Veronica’s.

Betty’s collections are more on the neutral “girl next door” colors while Veronica’s are more of the sultry colors. I did not get all, though God knows how much I wanted to but these things are not cheap! Sigh. So I got a few things which I thought I needed and I could not live with. So let’s get started!!

They have two eye shadow palettes, I obviously got my hands on both! They are:

1. Betty’s – Caramel Sundae

2. Veronica’s – Spoiled Rich

Below is what the packaging looks like for both palettes. If you’re familiar with the Wonder Woman or the Hello Kitty eyeshadow palettes that MAC released a while back, this is similar except of the theme but still the same metal compact casings which I adore!

The had so many shades of lipsticks for both Veronica and Betty, but I only got three (2 from Veronica’s and 1 from Betty’s). I got none of the lip glosses cause I rarely use lip glosses nowadays.

ENYA BIJOUX – It’s an addiction!

Standard

Hi Yall!

It looks like I am only able to do a weekly post by looking at my tight schedule. So sorry about this. Tonight, I will not be doing a post about make up but more to fashion I guess? Jeweleries to be exact! Beautiful rings and necklaces and earrings, you’ll read about all this here!

I was not a big fan of huge rings and necklaces but I was a big fan of earrings. I have found this awesome girl in Instagram, ENYA BIJOUX , and she makes wonderful and gorgeous jeweleries, bracelets, rings, necklaces, be it strings, beads or chains, you name it, she makes it! And the most popular items that she has that would literally be sold out in seconds are her Milky Ways! Down below, you can see some of her Milky Way rings that I was able to grab for myself and honestly, I AM ADDICTED! They’re beautiful and just so OHHHHHHHH! I cannot describe this rush that these beauties give me.

But first, lets do a lil short intro about Enya Bijoux, she describes herself as a modern minimalist jewellery designer, and her name is actually Yusrina Abdullah, a local entrepreneur. I have come across a lot of locals selling jeweleries but personally, her designs are just amazing and the quality is the best! She did mention somewhere, I have no idea where I read this but she did say that she will not sell jeweleries that she herself would not wear or buy. She puts effort on each and every single items that she makes and I really appreciate that, as a customer.

The rings, they range from $30 above depending on the size and weight of the stones. And what’s nicer, is that you can choose if you want to have a silver ring base or a 24kt gold plated ring base. So, go and help yourself to have a look see of my Milky Way rings so far..

20130331-190528.jpg

20130331-190538.jpg

20130331-191914.jpg

What’s more awesome is that she has Milky Way earrings as well! She has different shapes and sizes but these are all I had managed to get. So so proud of myself.

20130331-190559.jpg

20130331-190621.jpg

And this would be my one and only Milky Way necklace that I was able to grab during The Entrepreneur Carnival last month. I am planning to get more of these and I do hope I’ve the chance to do so. For these as well, Enya Bijoux sells different colors and shapes, and price would also depend on the size and weight of the stones.

20130331-190648.jpg

Here you can see what the two ring bases look like.

20130331-192132.jpg

And this I need to mention, her earrings are all on sterling silver posts with butterfly backs.

20130331-192227.jpg

Please search ‘Enya Bijoux’ on Instagram now and you will find yourself drooling over her stuff. Just like myself, I keep on refreshing my Instagram every single day just incase she uploads something new.

Oh and by the way, I am writing this post with my own will, and I bought all of these with my own money. I am not sponsored or asked to do a post about Enya Bijoux. All of this are my own opinion and thoughts.

Happy shopping girls! :)

Revlon’s Really Red!

Standard

Hi ladies!

Now I have got time to do another post. Went out lastnight and was rocking a red lippie! Got so many compliments on my lipstick and I thought I would share with you the color I was using.

Presenting Revlon’s Matte lipstick in 006 Really Red.

Its obviously matte as you can tell by the name but it’s not drying as other matte lipsticks would. And I love how deep and rich the red is and it just makes you feel sexy and confident. This red can be worn at a night out and if you’re feeling confident, you can also wear this for work. Personally, I wouldnt mind wearing this to work.

This is from their permanent Matte line and if you havent got this shade, do get this. If you want a perfect application, I suggest you wear a lipbrush to apply this but I did not use one cause applying it normally is fine by me too.

Here are the pictures!

REVLON JUST BITTEN KISSABLE BALM STAINS

Standard

Hi all!

I know I knowwww. I have been gone for so long! My night classes are driving me nuts! Sorry for not having time to update. My exams are finally over now so I’ll try my very best to update my blog daily.

So without further a do, let’s get on to it!

Today ladies, I had a hard time trying to think of the best thing to talk about, I have got some great MAC and SIGMA stuff but are limited editions. So I thought it beats the purpose of talking about it and recommend them to you when you can’t find them anywhere anymore. So I am sticking to products you can still get online or in your local shops.

Today’s lucky thingymajig would be the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains!

I have 4 of them with me. I believe they have 12 colors altogether but they don’t sell all in Brunei, God knows why.

So here they are..

Image

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains

From L to R: 015 Cherish, 045 Romantic, 025 Sweetheart, 050 Precious

Image

From L to R: 050 Precious, 025 Sweetheart, 045 Romantic, 015 Cherish

Revlon has come up with.. Not just a stain but a BALM stain where the color will stay on your lips at the same time it will not be drying as those traditional lip stains. These are lightweight the colors stay for hours.

The packaging is adorable, they look like chubby crayons and it is retractable so no sharpener required gals!

Image

From top to bottom: 015 Cherish, 050 Precious, 025 Sweetheart,045 Romantic

015 Cherish: A pale pinkish mauve color.

050 Precious: A light beige that appears to be a not very flattering nude for my skin tone.

025 Sweetheart: Love this color a lot. It’s a bright fuschia pink.

045 Romantic: Another fav! A very rich bright red.

I would totally recommend these. Now you don’t need to wear a lip balm first hand before wearing your lipstick. Praise Revlon for coming up with this genius products! The colors are mostly pigmented, some may fall on the sheer side like Precious. But then again, they are FANTABULOUS!

So if you haven’t tried this out, please do. And if you have, tell me what are your thoughts!

Have a good day ladies!

Pin Up Pop Beauty Palette

Standard

Hi yall!

I was thinking of what to review today, so i went to see my stash of new products, and this caught my attention.

So this palette it is! This palette is from Pop Beauty and its called Pin Up Pop Palette. Its a very small and slim palette so for those of you who hates bulky packaging then this is for you.

20120824-212848.jpg

Here you can see how slim the palette is..

20120824-212948.jpg

This palette holds 12 small sized palettes. The eyeshadows are surprisingly pigmented. This is my first time trying out Pop Beauty Cosmetics and I already want more. Its BND 24.90 for 12 eyeshadows, its so worth it!

The eyeshadows are, as i said, very pigmented and easy to blend. I have to admit, some colours are a bit too chalky for my taste but it is still ok. You can see the swatches right here..

20120824-214320.jpg
Looking good in the palette. It has a nice mirror too with a magnetic closure so that’s cool.

20120824-214447.jpg

20120824-214603.jpg

20120824-214719.jpg

This palette claims to be perfect for those who are so used to smokey looks or natural colors but willing to try bright colors too. I totally agree. This palette has a wide selection of colors, they’ve got bright blues and greens but you can tone it down by smoking it out with the browns and blacks.

Overall, thumbs up for this palette, especially for the price. If you see this palette around, go buy it, give it a try, you will not be disappointed!

Updated Make Up Collection Part 1

Standard

Hi All!

 

It feels so good to be back. It’s the eve of Hari Raya Aidilfitri, and im all alone. My family decided to head to bed early and my boyfriend’s at his uncle’s, so instead of lying on the bed and staring at the ceiling, might as well do a blog post.

So tonight, i feel like doing an updated make up collection. Id add some storage tips if i can remember to talk about them. Please remember that i am not bragging in anyway, i enjoy collecting make up. Most of them are from my own money, and if not, they’re all gifts from family and friends.
Lets get on to pictures!

20120819-223615.jpg

This is how my make up set up look like, same ol’ same ol’.

20120819-223625.jpg

This is the pink cupboard that i showed in my past post. I may have changed some stuff abit.

20120819-223636.jpg

On the top of the cupboard, i got a vintage tray thing that i place all my perfumes.

20120819-223644.jpg

Under the perfumes, ive got 2 separate clear containers where i put all my lotions, body butters, Vaseline, body mist and make up cleansers.

20120819-223655.jpg

On the next cupboard, on top, that’s where i place all my clean brushes, two antique containers to put my most used earrings and watch.

20120819-223703.jpg

Under the brushes, theres two more clear containers where i have all my big coastal scents, NYX and manly palette inside. The other container contains all my bb creams, foundations and primers.

20120819-223711.jpg

Here’s an overview of whats on my make up vanity.

20120819-223718.jpg

These are two pen holders that i spray painted pink and glued huge flowers on to make them look nicer. Inside one of them, i have all my eyeliners from various brands and milk jumbo pencils. In the other, i have all mu Urban Decay primer potions in different shades and Too Faced Glitter Glue.

20120819-223725.jpg

Here i have my most used brushes.Most of them are from Sigma and MAC

20120819-223736.jpg

Next, here is where i have all my new palettes that i need to try/use. I just place them in letter holders. They fit there perfectly. Oh and at the back is my trusty ol mirror that i adore.

20120819-223748.jpg

Here’s the palettes that I need to try out. Just incase you cant see them in the previous photo.

20120819-223806.jpg

On the top shelf is where i have perfume sets that i got as gifts, boxes of hairbands and things like that. The shelf at the bottom is where I have all my lip stuff. All from lipsticks to lip balms to lip glosses!

20120819-223815.jpg

In this acrylic lipstick holder, i have all my NYX round lipsticks, a mirror from Holika Holika and burts bees lipbalms in a tin can.

20120819-223824.jpg

Next, in this picture, ive got two sizes of acrylic lipstick holders, the tall one at the back holds all my MAC lipsticks and the three smaller ones in front are all my other lipsticks from various brands.

20120819-223831.jpg

And here is where i have all my lip glosses. The two smaller glasses are actually candle holders that im already done with so that’s a nice tip if you want something fancy yet budget-able.

So that’s all for part 1, I’ll be back with part 2.

TheBalm Cosmetics Part 2

Standard

Heya everyone!

How are you all today? Now its time for the post that I’ve been promising to update which you can already see by the title, TheBalm Cosmetics Part 2. Lets get into it!

20120317-083202.jpg
TheBalm Goodies

20120317-083357.jpg

As you can see here, first we have the Balm Shelter. Balm Shelter is a tinted moisturizer. And as you all know, most tinted moisturizer would give light to medium coverage, enough to blend out our skin tones and hide blemishes.

20120317-083658.jpg

I got the shade in Medium, its a tar bit dark for my NW20 skin tone but I don’t mind it at all.

20120317-084018.jpg

It comes in a tube so you squeeze the product out. I like that.

The downside of this product is that it doesn’t have a lot of shade range. They only have 3, which is light, light/medium and medium. But then again, it does what its supposed to do so i love this.

Next,

20120317-084357.jpg
Meet Matte

20120317-084414.jpg
Meet Matte
So this is how they look like on their pans

Now all these shadows are matte. But some, for me, are more of a satin finish. I like how its more of a satin finish because it is easier to work with than matte shadows.

Overall, good eye shadows. If you’re tired of your shimmery, glittery shadows and you don’t wanna look so over the top then this is for you. Personally, i love matte eye shadows. It’s good for an everyday look, especially for work or school, you just cant go wrong with this.

20120317-085120.jpg

And the last but not least is..

20120317-085246.jpg
Nudetude Palette

20120317-085557.jpg
Nudetude Palette – Naughty Version

I know they have a “Nice” Version of this palette. The only difference is the packaging, but all the shadows are 100% the same. I personally love the naughty version cause its just too damn adorable! I love it!

But here’s a picture that I got off Google, for you to see the comparison.

20120317-085940.jpg

Lets look at the swatches,

20120317<br /><br />
-090219.jpg” /></span></a></span></p>
<p style=20120317-090359.jpg

As you can see, this has a better selection of mix finishes. So if you’re traveling and you don’t wanna bring so much make up with you then you cant go wrong with this. This has better selections than Meet Matte. You can do a day and night look with this. I really recommend this if you’re on a budget and you just want to get either one.

And also, both palettes come with small brushes as you can see by the photos. I don’t like brushes that comes with the palettes. I cant work with them cause they’re just too stiff. But I don’t mind that at all, cause for me, the products that matters.

So overall, I love everything that I bought from TheBalm Cosmetics. They are comparable with MAC, Benefit or even Urban Decay eye shadows. Again, I’ll say this, TheBalm Cosmetics don’t get the hype that they deserve. Try them out and you’ll not regret.

So until next time!

Cheap Fake Lashes!

Standard

Hey loves!

I was gonna go to bed but I decided to do one blog post before I head to dreamland.

And no, this isn’t TheBalm Cosmetics part 2 yet, as you can see by the title above, it’s gonna be a short random post about fake lashes.

For you my bruneian gals, you must have seen people selling fake lashes here that costs $4 each pair right? You know the ones that’s in this kind of boxes.

20120313-215613.jpg

Not the exact same box though but you get it. It’s so expensive here, whats more is they sell them individually (one pair). But when I saw this in Miri, I had to ask the salesgirl if RM 15.90 was for each pair or one box, and when she said the whole box retails for that price I immediately grabbed one for myself.

20120313-220041.jpg

10 pairs of lashes for RM 15.90, I cannot pass that up.

They’re good quality lashes and they do look natural on but they dont come with a lash glue, which isnt a problem for me cause I prefer using my own anyway.

So if you do see this around Miri or wherever, dont forget to grab one or two, you’ll always need fake lashes for god knows what.

Until then, I’ll talk to you all next time. Take care!

Xx,
