strictly beauty.

It's been a while. Havent done much makeupwise because i have my future brother in law's wedding on the 19th December and i want the clearest flawless skin possible! But that hasnt stopped me from purchasing items for the future.

Im still using bio-oil which has slightly even out my skin tone. Also using a prescribed cream called "Celestone" (which i used on my very occasional eczema breakout), on my face. my dry patches have almost disappeared.

and onto the purchases + things i use alot.

This is the latest foundation release from Rimmel.
Which i got for $6.20 ( because they hired some 13y.o to label the prices of the products and got it ALL wrong). but usually its $12.40 @priceline


This is the old packaging. My first foundation i ever bought.
Sheer to medium, or u can use alot and get great coverage. I dont set my foundation so i do get a bit oily. but i havent been turn off by this product because it doesnt look like a mask on me nor does it feel like one.


Finally picked up the other two duos from australis because they were 50% off so $6.oo @priceline
ROSY BRONZE: Matte bronze( i use for contour) and dark pink blush
SUNKISSED GLIMMER: shimmery no glittery bronze and light pink highlighter

You can barely see the pinks and thats how i like it (=
Must go easy with the sunkissed glimmer bronzer

Got meself the "nudest" shade of the new australis lipstick line.

Mambo: pinky nude. Makes me look dead
Nude delight: peach base nude.. makes me look pale


This is my favourite eye shadow colours
they just suit my yellow asian skin tone so well.

MODELISTA :
Flash eyes / On Location - Barcelona
@target for about $13 for a quad.


2:inner half lid
3:outer half lid
1:outereye socket
4:highlight and inner sockets


Whilst browsing at Target, i came across a new stand from Manicare.
its called Cosmetica. They have the basics of makeup brushes without being to expensive.

I picked up the Rounded Contour brush which is similar the MAC 219 brush (i dont own one but from pictures it must be a dupe) for $12.95
Difference being Mac is slightly skinnier and longer in terms of bristles. Well im definetely going to head back and get the 217 dupe.



Pros:
picks up products wells
applies product very smoothly
blends well
exceptionally good for $12.95

Cons:
Light weight .:. less control

I tried the egg whites and tissue mask. I LOVED how it was like i was paper mache-ing my face, peeling it off was so orgasmic! BUT it only half assed pull my blackheads halfway out =(

I havent tried these nose strips yet but review on yt have all been that its really worth the amount you're paying ($10.50 @priceline)


i have a love hate relationship with this. It does remove my make up thoroughly BUT dries me out hard. The best mu remover i've used was the lancome bi-facil but its sooooooo expensive, so yeh i just settled for this.


i had to sneak this in, my nephew ate everyones lemon at the dinner table.
My boyfriend got vouchers for not taking sick days from work for the whole of 08 so we went to a nice white people restuarant and ate 300$ worth of food. By white i mean the more than one utensil restuarant.


Its nice to eat out once in a while but i still love my chopsticks style food.

More shopping =) &tagged


Hello Kitty bag(fake). SOOO Big , great for my almost daily sleepover at my boyf. house
The Bed sheets and (left) cushion are authentic Sanrio.


blacktrack fluid line , greasepaintstick

MAC Style Black.
I was looking forward to this collection however I only got the greasepaint stick though.

Honestly, GET the greasepaint stick. it is worth that entire $38!

I have oily eyelids after a few hours of application of anything. the MUA promised me the fluidline wont budge, but it does everytime. But the greasestick barely budges, keeps its purple tinge after hours. i will def. get a greasepaint stick when they come in plain black.

i wanted Young Punk but that sold out. Also the volcanic skin stuff but im already using neutrogena Skinclearing cleanser/mask which has Salicylic Acid + Natural Clay Mineral



Everytime i use this (once a week) im always shocked at how hot and minty it feels. I always feel clean because of the heat from this product. and its only about $15. So this is hot enough i dont think i can handle the "volcanic"ness from the MAC.


Cute charm bracelet from diva for $5.

Python clutch/handbag $20 from Forever New
clutch/handbag $2.00 from Vinnies.


MINKPINK off the shoulder top $20.

SES Dress $8

Rules: Tell your 10 facts about me and then tag 10 great blogs that i love to read:

1. Born and bred in Sydney Australia in Asian suburbs mainly dominated by Viets.
2. i have been in foster care for about 2 months of my life at about 11 years old when my mum was really ill.
3. im still working at my first job. Butchers salesgirl.
4. I've never had hairlength above my shoulders
5. The most expensive thing i own are my braces, $3500. lol still counts
6. im an absolute pansy, i cant stand up for myself. For example, if a friend borrows my purse for an occasion but still hasnt returned it in a month i wont say anything. and when she does return it - it's damaged in someway, i still wont say anything. lol its not a good quality.
7. I've always been reluctant to spend big on clothing because my mum used to sew for a living-making less than $5 a garment. It didnt and still doesnt justify to me why clothes were being sold a gazillion times more than the cost of production.

8. when i got into makeup, i was so over the top. concealer, foundation, eyeshadow, liner, falsies.
Now im taking a step back, and focusing on my skin care and just emphasising my eyes. Sleeping more hours has improved my overall skintone, less bags. Drinking more milk has made my whole body feel smoother, milia has reduced dramatically.

9. i loved sport during my highschool years, mainly because it was group activity and competitive. I just can't have fun on the crosstrainer, treadmill, bicycle at the gym.

10. i cant remember the last time i said i love you to my mum. its just weird to say it, so i think the things i do for her will show.

Im not going to tagg anyone, but here are my favourite 10 blogs.

My haul without guilt


Its only spring here but its really is heating up. Sydney recently had a dust storm which EVERYONE had to update their fb status about haha i seriously thought it was the end of the days
. I refuse to wear bras and so these bikini bralettes are doing a fine job covering my tittays.

$15 down to $5 =D

Picked this up for vincent because he sleeps earlier than me and i HAVE to watch tv and be on online before bed and so this baby puts my baby straight to bed.

He's a rooster in the chinese zodiac thats why i got it for him - only realising later in the morning that it meant " COCK TEASE"
tehehe he so cute.

Blacktrack fluidline, lancome khol liner, angle brush ( purchased with set of 5 for $7), Heater curler (L) Rimmel mascara

My skin has been TERRIBLE, i got like patches of drought happening to my face. so i've stopped using foundation and creams on my face. Got back to using BIO-OIL. Hence just the eyes baby.



For something thats made in South Africa, you'd think it would be cheaper. but no. 200 ml for $33.90, ive been using it daily so hopefully some results soon.

----------------------

On another different note. My tv shows for the season =)

Loved this since day 1.
i LOVE glee, im so happy they're on for the entire season
Gossip Girl, surprising picks up well even thought i didnt watch S2. i cant wait for Duff action, she is such a good person.
two and a half men! Only started watching this a year ago. Love watching reruns and watch jake grow!
Desperate Housewives, loved this from day one as well.
I was bearing with The beautiful life, i would have still beared with it for an entire season but it got the axe after 2 episodes. Fail man.

And the hills, watching this 20 minute show of a bunch of dumbasses getting paid 40k- 100k per episode fml.

ahhh story of my life..

Heartless - Kris Allen


[exclaimer:I'm not a good cook - i burn things just reheating.]

Whipped these pancakes up on wednesday night with my little brother.
Can NEVER get them perfect! When i flip them over it - the mixture just oozes everywhere


It was real cheap to make as well.

Strawberries $3.50 a punnet
Whipped Cream $ 4.00
Pancake mix $3.15
Butter Milk $2.50

Went crazy with the cream coz we dont eat it often and it would go to waste.

Just a simple look for Steak on Thursday night. Because red meat is good for you =)


And then a saturday night sleep over.



He is such a freaking cutie pie of cuteness!!
