MAC Me Over

MAC is releasing 8 lipsticks in the MAC Me Over Collection (International – Sept. 2011 | Online – Aug. 23 | US – Aug. 25) and I’m in love with 4! Yeap, I’m a lipstick junkie! And the reason I love MAC lipsticks so much is because they are vanilla-scented!!! They have an awesome range of colors and finishes too. Here are my picks:
Peachstock (natural peach) a light-medium beige with the warmth of peach. This shade has a satin finish, and it is permanent at PRO stores.
Dint get this back then cos the counter dint have a tester and I was afraid I might look ghostly. (Give Me Liberty of London Collection)
Prince Noir (deep blue-purple) this shade has a matte finish.

Rebel (vivid pinkish purple) a rich burgundy with a fuchsia shimmer and vibrancy. This shade has a satin finish, and it is permanent.

Smoked Purple (deep eggplant purple) a dark eggplant purple with cool undertones. This shade has a matte finish, and it is permanent at PRO stores.

Bed Weather & Rambling

Wish I could stay in bed and cuddle on a Saturday.. but I have work, boo-hoo! This rain is making me wake up late for work too hihi. It’s so cold and quiet. I just want to stay in bed all day!

ps: photos were taken right after I woke up.
Was brave enough to show y’all my bare face. My skin isn’t perfectly flawless at all.. acne scars, uneven skin tone and redness. Wish I have perfect skin though. Oh.. my eyes are naturally puffy cos I’m part Chinese. So ye, rambling on.. Is it weird that I sleep with my laptop and phone beside me? And don’t worry; you won’t smell my morning breath through the screen less you have a smell-o-vision (?).
pss: that sounded gross haha! I don’t have bad breath in the morning. FYI.

After 1hr.. here at the office. Spot the pimple! Nyaha! Got my makeup on cos me and my girlfriend, oops I meant boyfie, will go out to dinner and watch Captain America!!! SO excited to see Carlo! We’re both busy with work and only get to see each other on weekends. So ye.. HAPYY WEEKEND GUYS! Stay safe and dry! (:

On my face (if you’re wondering): MAC Studio Fix powder NC25 | MAC Select Moisturecover concealer NW20 (undereye) | MAC Blush Baby blush | Benefit Hoola bronzer | Skindinavia No More Shine makeup finishing spray | Too Faced Shadow Insurance | Urban Decay 24/7 liners in Zero and Bourbon smudged on my lashline | Andrea lashes #53 | Maybelline Great Lash Big mascara | Revlon ColorStay Brow Enhancer in Medium Brown | Bench lipstain

From Head to Toe

I have oily/acne prone skin so I’m picky with what I use on my skin and it’s frustrating that no matter how careful I am and whatnot, I still break out here and there at times. But so far, these products are really helping me tame down those nasty zits from poppin out like mushrooms! AND “a few” body products that I love.
Proactiv, which I use on-and-off cos my skin tends to get immune by it after a while of usage. And if that happens, I use Cetaphil for a month then switch back to Proactiv again. Clarisonic gentle hydro-cleanser just came with my Clarisonic Mia and I love it! I only use it when I wear heavy makeup cos I don’t wanna run out of it. The Neutrogena naturals one as I’ve said on my previous post is an amazing cleanser-makeup remover, but we’re out of it so boo-hoo!

Proactiv Revitalizing Toner and Repairing Treatment. The toner is very refreshing and the lotion helps prevent and manages my acne problems.

Neutrogena Hydroboost and VMV Hypoallergenics Aramada Face Cover 45. The best moisturizer and sunblock that I’ve used so far.. no breakouts and my skin is less oily too! AMAZING products!

Garnier Light eye roll-on, can’t afford those high-end eye treatments but this little wand is doing its job pretty well! It hydrates my eye area and the cooling effect + caffeine diminishes the puffiness and dark circles! The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil, I use this for spot tx of my zits.

St. Ives, Proactiv Refining Mask and Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque, I use whichever I feel like using haha!

Neutrogena cleansing towelettes and MAC Cleanse Off Oil, for removing makeup specially the waterproof ones!

MAC Lip Conditioner in Pink Fish

Dove deodorant, I love this deo-spray cos it’s gentle and it smells so good! LIKE A BABY!

Bath and Body Works Romance body cream, Johnson’s daily UV lotion and LUSH Dream Cream, I use the lotion in the morning cos it’s too hot outside and I’m always on-the-go; and creams at night for extra moisture!

I know I use a lot of products.. don’t judge. Hahaha! I’m just banidosa like that! (:

MAC Prep + Prime Future Length Lash Serum

MAC Prep + Prime Future Length Lash Serum

U.S. Launch Date: July 14th, 2011
International Launch Date: August 2011
($30.00 U.S. / $36.50 CDN) (Permanent)

The latest addition to our successful Prep + Prime family is a new Patented formula that promotes natural lash growth for longer, thicker, stronger-looking lashes, with dramatic results visible in eight weeks when used twice daily. Designed to enhance over time, this breakthrough patent-pending treatment delivers a measurable, visible difference. Apply a thin line of serum to the base of the upper and lower lashes on clean, dry skin, morning and evening, and watch what happens. from this day forward, there is no looking back!

I’d give this one a shot, still hopeful that my long lashes will return after a bad lash extension experience, huhuhu! I’ve tried three serums before, namely: ModelCo Lash & Brow Growth Stimulator, L’Oreal Lash Boosting Serum and Ardell Brow & Lash Growth Accelerator.. and I think ModelCo really worked ‘cept that it stings when I use it. The L’Oreal and Ardell ones just conditioned my lashes, dint lengthen them and whatnot. So ye, I’m looking forward to this product and hope it will work! Heard RapidLash, LiLash and Latisse are really good, BUT really expensive as well. Any thoughts? If you’ve tried other brands, please share your experience -I’d love to hear from you. And would you try this?

MAC Collective Haul

Just got the essentials and a couple of eyeshadows in Club and Sushi Flower, such pretty colors! Dint get them all at once of course, hence the word “collective”. And apparently I’ve gone a shade lighter.. from NC25 I am now NC20. Though NC25 still works for me cos it makes me look like I have a bit of a tan.. and I still have a few good uses to my Fix Fluid in NC25 left. So ye.. I’ve yet to depot my eyeshadows and put them in my MAC palette so I’ll stop rambling now, hahaha, sorry! Kbye.

MAC (Give Me Liberty of London) Petals & Peacocks  and Morange on my lips. Sorry, I was bored. Hahaha!

Spring Cleaning

(photo made via Polyvore)

It’s the perfect time of the year again to clean, overhaul and organize everything that you use to make you beautiful!

Here’s what to do:

  1. Gather all your makeup and bag/kit, laying them on paper towels or just at any clean surface.
  2. Take all your makeup brushes and give them a bath!
  3. Wash or sanitize your bag/kit and products.
  4. Toss out what you don’t use!
