I'm a CHEATER!!!

First of all, i'm sorry for the long MIA.

I've been really busy with work and dealing with moving... bahh!
I know, I know NO EXCUSES!!

I cheated...
Cheated on my ten pan challenge that is!
And I was doing so well! Four entire weeks with no makeup/skincare purchases!!!
I finished about 7 items (altho most of them are skincare items -- makeup is IMPOSSIBLE to finish!! LOL but i did manage to finish a couple of mascaras) so I allowed myself to have a little mini break....

The results of the "mini" break:

From L:

Make up for ever kabuki - EVER SO SOFT!!

Guerlain L'or radiance concentrate with pure gold makeup base - this has to be the most expensive makeup item I've ever bought!! I have really high expectations for this or else it's going back for sure!

Make up for ever face & body foundation
- I was looking for a med/full coverage foundation that doesn't contain spf for pictures :)

Smashbox lip exfoliant
after watching Fuz's review on this I had to try it!!

Diorshow iconic extreme waterproof mascara - I caved and got this... lets hope its worth the hefty price tag!

Here's today FOTDs :) **wearing my geo angel browns O.O

BTW I've been stuck in a makeup rut probably cuz i don't have a lot of time in the morning before work and i'm feeling lazy and uninspired :( (HINT this would be a good time to request looks :P)
I didn't take a pic of the products I used but if you have questions feel free to ask!!

Since i will be moving so I'm thinking of having a blog sale and get rid of some extra stash in my makeup drawer. I dunno if anyone will be interested in that but keep your eyes posted! I promise everything will be dirt cheap!!! :)

Bye bye for now!!

No More Buys!

Lately I've been feeling really tempted to buy lots of stuff since I got my Shopper's discount.


I've decided to join in on Project 10 Pan which means no more makeup/skincare purchases until I finish up at least 10 makeup/skincare items :)

It's a great way to save some money and use up products before they expire (at the same time make room for future purchases :P)

I am also going to include hair & body care items along with makeup products.
Since these items are a bit easier to finish I'm going to aim for 15 items before I make any makeup/skin care purchases :P

Wish me luck!!!

Items that I'm hoping to finish:
1. Skin food aloe bb cream
2. pantene hair conditioner
3. body shop pomegranate body scrub
4. Lise watier hydrating face lotion
5. CG lash blast
6. Yves Rocher chamomile toner

A romantic haul...

Hi Beauties!

Sorry for the late post on this haul! I actually picked these babies up about 2 weeks ago (the day after the collection's debut)!
I still had a few of those $10 off $50 cards left for use at the bay so I thought I can put them to good use before they expire (just another excuse to shop lol).

I already had a list in mind of what i wanted to pick up. The item that I was the most excited for was the Just a pinch gel blush. However after swatching the blush at the MAC counter I immediately changed my mind. Somehow the applied consistency and color reminded me so much of Benetint by benefit which I still have a whole 3/4 bottle + sample jar to go thru. However, the MAC gel blush is probably easier to use since its not so liquidy. I always had a hard time with any kind of cheek stain cuz i find them very difficult to apply. I can never get them to go on the desired areas and blending is such a pain in the bum area.

Here are the items that I picked up from the collection along with a few other items...

From left to right:

MAC creamsheen lipstick in Creme cup(looked EVERYWHERE for this!! it was the last one left at this MAC counter)
MAC eye shadow in:
Et tu, Bouquet?
Goldmine (the BF recommended this one LOL)
MAC paint pot in bare study
MAC pigment in Mutiny

MAC creme cup lipstick on my lips:

With smile dazzle glass on top!

A benefit lipstick in candy store i found on clearance at the bay for $5.49 CAD!!
it's really really smooth despite all the glitters! makes me wanna get more lipsticks from them!
Beautiful coral pink shade w/ golden glitters!! reminds me of NARS orgasm :p

Finally, got this for my cousin at winners for 16.99!!! pretty sweet deal and the colors are actually quite pigmented!

An Urban Decay eyeliner I also found at winners for $3.99:

sorry for all the haul postings..... I promise to do some reviews, FOTDs, etc. when i get a chance to take a break from all the studying! :(

Bye bye for now!!!!


Hi Beauties!

I've been haulin quite a bit lately!! I think i should actually use these new stuffies and do some looks!
