No new post at the moment.

The past few days have been super hectic. Basically, I travel a lot!
JB--->Shah Alam --->Ipoh--->KL--->Putrajaya--->JB

The trip would be more enjoyable if I'm not down with sore throat and fever. To make it worse, I lost my phone and I left my laptop in Ipoh.

I just get replacement simcard, getting new phone tomorrow and my laptop on courier to Johor by now.

So I not gonna write new post at the moment, at least not until my laptop arrived.

I have two more days to shop stuff for my next giveaway. Yes, I'm gonna host a small giveaway this January, I'm still getting the small details work out.

NOTD: L.A. Colors Ruby Slippers & FOTD: E.L.F. Butternut

This shimmery red nail polish really live up its name, it reminds me a lot of the ruby slippers in the Wizard of Oz. I used two coats and boy it's easy to apply. It applied smooth, but I really think it need a good top coat as it chip off easily.

The past few days I've been really lazy for makeup. I'm too lazy to play with my eyeshadow that I always end up using only one color. No brainer right? Applied any color to the lid and blend up to the crease. Easy! Breaking the habit today, I used all 4 shades in E.L.F. Brightening Eye Color Butternut. But, I'm still too lazy to blend it properly. Am I having makeup withdrawal syndrome? Hell no! No way. You can take my handbags or my dresses (but please don't do that), never my makeup.

Last weekend, I collected all used travel sized bottles, jars and empty cosmetics containers and washed it all. I'm gonna used some of it for my holiday trip end of this year. Reusing bottles like this will help extending use of the material, and helping reducing waste in long term. Furthermore, doing this prevents me from getting the airless pump bottles from Ebay. Save~

I reorganized the way I use my makeup brushes. Instead of having everything in the brush tin can, I only placed the one I'm using there. The rest tucked in nicely in the brush roll. So instead of washing about 30 brushes every end of the week or so, I just need to wash less than 10 brushes. Phew~

L.A. Colors Lipstick (Cranberry Red, Jazzy Red and Lucious Wine) Swatches

From left to right: Cranberry Red, Jazzy Red, Lucious Wine

For an inexpensive lipstick, L.A. Colors lipsticks are actually good. The seller that I bought these lipsticks from even says that these lipsticks are comparable to MAC's. I don't have a single MAC lipstick, so I'm not really sure about that.

IMHO, these lipstick texture way better than NYX round lipstick. It have this particular scent, like how lipsticks used to smell ages ago. 'Ages ago' I mean when I used to play with my mum's lipsticks when I was small.

I find L.A. Colors lipstick to be very pigmented. However, it is a lil drying on my lips. I never wear this lipsticks out, so I don't know how long-lasting this lipsticks are.

The swatches online are not accurate at all, that explains why I have 3 red lipstick that's rather similar.

JB Day 1 - Haul, FOTD and Cuteness.

I went to Guardian this morning and noticed quite alot of sale and discounts. Maybelline especially have discounts on most of their products from 10% to 20%.

I bought quite a lot of stuffs today. I bought The Body Facial Brush, Tea Tree Oil Facial Exfoliater and Tea Tree Oil Cover Stick. I bought 4 nice quality washcloth for RM10!
At Guardian, I bought Maybelline Eye & Lip Makeup Remover, Ellips Hair Vitamin and Guardian Cotton Bud. At this random shop, I forgot the name dy, I bought nail arts stuff and hair clips.
Today EOTD done using ELF Mineral Eyeshadow Primer, ELF Essential Day 2 Night quad and mascara duo with ELF Studio ELF Cream Eyeliner in Metallic Olive.

Today's bonus, cute kitten!

It's holiday!

That's a christmas tree in our lab, it's actually Jerry's. This tree cheer me up a lot since it is a good reminder of the coming holiday. This year I'm spending Christmas holiday in J.B. Crossing my fingers and toes, hoping that there would be a lot of sale going on. Happy holiday everyone :)

p/s: I had safely arrived in JB despite multiple flight delays. Flying with Air Asia is like mental endurance challenge to me. hehe.

24 Dec 2010 FOTD and OOTD

Air Asia rescheduled my flight again. Instead of departure at 6.45pm, they reschedule back to 8.00pm. To be safe, I come to the airport early, you know, in case Air Asia change their mind again. So, I have lots of free time before departure, and since I'm stuck at the airport, I might as well enjoy a cup of Starbucks and take my time blogging.

I really like today FOTD despite not so good skin condition. I'm really happy to find that ELF Studio Blusher Mellow Mauve and ELF Essential Lipstick Gypsy are match made in heaven, they complement each other very well!

My hair won't fluff out as I want it to be. Maybe it's because the EMC hair mask last night weight my hair down, even after shampoo. Well, at least my hair is well moisturised. But, but, I want lion mane hair~
Sorry for the toilet background. I find that my faculty toilet have the best natural lighting for camera in the morning. Not exactly a eureka moment.

I need to show some love to my neglected quads, so today I used ELF Essential Brightening Eye Color in Blue Moon. I skip eyeliner today, too lazy to line my eyes.

Now, highlight of the day, ELF Essential Lipstick in Gypsy and ELF Essential Super Glossy Lip Shine in Pink Kiss on top. This combo last for a very long time. I reapply after lunch and it had been 6.5 hours, it still going strong.

LOL, I think how this edited pictures come out is kinda funny. My over-zealous picture-combining activity is actually a good thing! Outfit of the day consist of blue jacket and heels from Padini, RM15 no-brand jeans and RM10 t-shirt from Times Square. I don't I'm gonna do OOTD post again, I don't think this is my kind of stuff.

Review and Swatches: ELF Essential Lipstick (Classy, Gypsy, Seductive and Posh)

Boy, this lipsticks are pleasant surprise. 3.5g for $1, they really worth it. Typical of ELF Essential, this lipsticks packaging are cheap. It is light and kinda flimsy, but I love the clear plastic part of the lipstick tho. It have strong scent in tube, but the scent is very weak when applied. The lipstick are a bit hard. When I first received 'em, I have to glide it many times on my lips to apply it. It is easier to apply after you warm it up a bit. I guess, warming at the back of your hand would help soften it.

From left to right - Classy, Gypsy, Seductive and Posh

The texture is kinda creamy and I think it's a semi-matte lipstick since it have subtle sheen to it. It's not drying on my lips. The best thing, none of the lipstick I ordered are frosty. No glitter, no shimmer. Yay! I'm not sure how long lasting this lipstick is since I always reapply lipstick or lipgloss. Ok, this lipstick actually last quite long, I only need to reapply after meal. It didn't fade or feather after few hours. That is impressive considering that these lipstick only cost $1 each.

Clockwise - Gypsy, Posh, Seductive, Classy

The pigmentation of this lipstick are great. I find this lipsticks works great as lip stain or as sheer lipstick. If you layer the application, it would go semi-opaque. Basically, the color is buildable. Great huh!
  • Classy is nude pink, sort of lipstick version of Pink Kiss gloss except for the blue undertone.
  • Gypsy is light pink mauve.
  • Seductive is muted coral pink, sadly, Seductive broke at the base the first time I used it.
  • Posh is a very wearable red lipstick, it's more to maroon color.
Would I repurchase? If they got new color, a big YES! After all, it's only $1 each.

I found that these lipstick works great together with the ELF Super Glossy Lip Shine.

The swatches online are not accurate, so I would suggest finding more swatches pics from blogs and all. My description might not be accurate. The swatches picture may vary from different screens and lighting.

p/s: I'm going to JB this evening on Air Asia flight. Luckily, few days ago, I went to the website to double check my flights. Guess what? Typical of Air Asia standard, they change my flight schedule without informing me anything about it. Last time they did this, they call me to let me know. Not this time. So, boo~ to Air Asia. Anyway, for those flying to JB, Brunei, Sibu and Kuala Terengganu, there are no counter check in available from now on, so remember to check in via web, mobile or through the self check-in kiosk days or 2 hours before your flight, Air Asia won't be responsible if you couldn't check in because they don't have enough kiosk or its broken.

Travel Makeup Bag #2

I love travelling, but I hate packing, I hate the fact that I can't bring everything and I have to choose what to bring. Grrr, if only I have Doraemon's pocket. I'm in the middle of packing stuff for my holiday trip and I get bored, so I decided to take pictures of makeup stuff that I packed into my travel make up back.

This would be my second "travel makeup bag" post. Compared to previous post, this time I have to prepare stuffs for 10 days trip, that's means a whole lot more of stuffs! I'm sorry that I super-combined and compress photos in my blog. I find this a lot easier to do and suit my way. You can always click the pictures to enlarge it.

From left to right, top to bottom.
First row
  • I used an old makeup bag, over 4 years old I believed, and ELF Studio Brush Case. In the second picture is pretty much everything inside the make up bag.
Second row
  • I decant my body lotion, cologne, hair styling lotion and Clinique 3-Step Skincare items in smaller bottles and jars since the original bottles are too bulky.
Third row
  • I bring mostly ELF brushes and 3 Ecotools brushes in the brush case. I also fitted ELF Essential Mascara Duo and ELF Mineral Eyeshadow Primer in the empty slots.
  • Hair velcro, cotton pads, wet wipes and mini tweezer is a must!
Fourth row
  • To keep it simple, I'm gonna stick with neutral looks. I include ELF Essential Brightening Eye Color in Ivy and Dark 2 Night, ELF Studio Cream Eyeliner in Metallic Olive, Clinique High Impact Lipstick in Honey Blush, ELF Essential Lipstick in Gypsy, ELF Essential Super Glossy Lip Shine in Watermelon and Pink Kiss, NYX Single Eyeshadow in Black, ELF Mineral Blemish Kit and Egyptian Magic Cream in 5 gram jars.
  • ELF Essential Clarifying Powder in Rosy Beige, ELF Healthy Glow Bronzing Powder in Luminance and Matte Bronze , ELF Studio Complexion Perfection (not in picture), ELF Studio Blusher in Mellow Mauve (not in picture) and Candid Coral and Silkygirl Honeywood.
Last photo
  • Maybelline Eye & Lip Makeup Remover, baby shampoo, deodorant, baby powder and Skin79 Hot Pink BB Cream.
Hmm, I must remind myself to take it slow with combining the pictures. I'm addicted with Photoscape actually XD

Review and Swatches: NYX Round Lipstick Review

I take all picture in this post ages ago. I thought I deleted it cos I couldn't find it in my picture folder, turn out it was in my video folder *bimbo moment*.So yeah, the reason I got these lipstick are #1 the rave in YouTube and blogs #2 dirt cheap price #3 ready stock available in LYN. I bought it around RM10 or so per tube.

So I got 3 lipsticks, namely Darling, Rose Bud and Miracle. The packaging is small and cute. Kinda like it since most of my lipstick in silver tube, while this one in black tube. It have this weird funky smell, I don't know what is smell like, but for sure I don't like it at all.

I was curious what is at the bottom of the lipstick tube, it turned out to be some sort of rubbery gel, feel nice to squeeze you know. I'm kinda impressed on how accurate the color of the gel to the lipstick. Cute stuff.

I'm not that good with describing color, but I can tell you that Darling and Rose Bud are frosty lipsticks. Arggh, I hate frosty lipstick. I hope the swatches picture helps.

Anyhoo, the lipstick have creamy consistency, too creamy for me that it settle into fine line, easily rub off and very hard to pull off. I don't understand all the rave about these lipstick. Maybe it is just not my tube of lipstick.

Maybe the shades that I got is not the good one, but I'm not taking any risk, so...

Would I repurchase? No way. I find better alternatives to cheap lipstick that works better.
Would I recommend? If you like to experiments with color, yes, this lipstick have tons of different shades with different finishes. Who know this liptick might work for you.

ELF Mini Haul and Gift from Jiyuu.

I received a very interesting book and two pairs of gorgeous earrings from Jiyuu last Tuesday. The book, Sentimental Murder is one of the most unique and interesting book that I have. I'm hooked!
This morning I received my ELF parcel. The brush belt is second hand item, but I'm surprised to see how dirty it is when I opened the parcel. So I clean it up using baby oil since water and diluted detergent doesn't seem to work. Finally I got the cream eyeliner in Metallic Olive, it's a very pretty khaki cream eyeliner.

Review and Swatches: Silkygirl Moisture Rich Sunny Lipstick and Clinique High Impact Honey Blush Lipstick

Left: Silkygirl Moisture Rich Sunny Lipstick
Right: Clinique High Impact Honey Blush Lipstick

I got my Silkygirl lipstick last September during buy one free one promotion, I bought Sunny, while my bestfriend bought Playful. Without promotion, I think it is priced around rm17 or so.
Sunny is orange coral shade without shimmer or glitter and applied sheer. It have faint scent, not sweet or floral scent, could be the lipstick ingredient smell. I think it is in cream finishes, when applied, it sort of melt like butter. Mind you, I know very little about lipstick since I'm more of lip-gloss girl. Usually I use this lipstick by mixing it with ELF Super Glossy Lip Shine in Mauve Luxe or Watermelon. Alone, this lipstick does not last long, maybe about 2-3 hours before it started fading. Well, I did not expect much from it. I'm not sure if I will repurchase, but since there tons of shades available, I might find one that I like.

I sort of won the Clinique lipstick during Clinique workshop at my university. The makeup artist ask everyone where is the most suitable place to check how a foundation suit your skin tone. I answer correctly and given this lipstick. Last time I check at the Clinique counter, the price of this lipstick is almost RM70. The one that I got come it Clinique green tube. But the one on the counter is in different tube. So I guess mine is sample type.

It is a very natural color, it's my MLBB (my lips but better) lipstick. Again, I'm not good at describing color, but I would desribe this as peachy nude. LOL. Ok, at least I tried. This lipstick is actually pigmented, however, since I have pigmented lips, it appeared nude. Did I make sense here? *sigh* Anyhoo, it feels slightly gritty when I apply it on because all the shimmer. I dislike frosty lipstick, and this one is almost frosty. But it's not that bad. This is my HG lipstick as I can't do wrong with this one. It is moisturising. I would only reapply during mid-day after lunch. Would I repurchase? I'm trying to finish up the tube that I have right now before it go bad. Maybe I'll repurchase it when Clinique comes to my university. Reader of the Month Giveaway

Review: ELF Mineral Blemish Kit.

Reviews at E.L.F. website are mainly positive, while reviews from many blogs are mainly negative. I'm a little skeptic about E.L.F. Mineral Blemish Kit that I never really placed an order eventho I've been eye-ing this product for quite sometime.

I finally got the chance to try this product when I swap my wax kit with electronicfly. Coincidentally, the time when the Blemish Kit arrived was the time of the month. So I got few pimples than I can treat with the product to see if it works or not.
picture taken from

I apply it once or twice a day by patting the powder on targeted area using concealer brush. According to the website, it described the product as sheer. I find it is not that sheer. So I limit the use before bed time or when I'm not going out.

It is best to apply the product little by little as it tend to mess up if you pick up to much using brush. The product have faint sulfur scent as sulfur is one of the main ingredients. I applied this product after moisturiser. Part of my skin where the powder applied felt a lil tight. I find this product does nothing to conceal blemishes eventho it categorised as concealer in ELF website.

7 Days Observations

Day 1 - I didn't see any immediate effect of the powder.
Day 2 - Pimple on my chin grow much larger than the day before. No much difference observed for pimples on my forehead.

Day 3 - Pimple on my chin was popped accidentally when I wash my face. I think the Blemish Kit help speed up the whole time taken for pimple to popped and heal.
Day 4 - Pimples on my forehead noticeably larger than in Day 2 and 3.

Day 5 - Pimples on my forehead pretty much gone. Pimple scar on my chin dried up and healing.
Day 7 - Pimples on my chin and forehead totally gone. Because I didn't picked the pimples, the scaring much lesser and by the time of writing is not noticeable.

After testing the product for weeks, I can say that this products really works for me. It takes about 7 days to reduce pimples. Prior to Blemish Kit, pimples would take about two weeks to be totally reduced.

Aside from that, I think this product helps me reduce the urge to pick my pimples. It helps me feel that I did something to treat the blemishes. The powder reduce shine (absorbs oil) thus helping drying the pimple up. Whiteheads and blackheads on my nose and cheeks dried up after few days of application and come out much easier from pores. Another thing that I noticed when I used this product is that, pores between my nose and cheeks appear smaller. Since it's not that sheer, I wouldn't put this on if I'm going out.

Would I recommend it? Not really, since I read quite a lot of negative review, I think it is better if you try sample first before buying full size product. ELF did not sale sample size of this product, but you can try find depotted samples online. Would I repurchase it? Well, I'd placed an order for full size product few days ago. So, yes.


I like to add something very interesting. I had stop using Everyday Mineral base and concealer as it make my pores clog like no tomorrow. Whenever clogged pores happen, my face will have weeks of pimples festival. Even with my Clinique 3-step skin care system, I have to wait days to weeks for the pimples festival to end. I find, by mixing the mineral blemish kit with Clinique Clarifying Lotion 3 into paste and apply it to pimples and let it on overnight, all the pimples and bump will dried up or for the super large one, it will reduced significantly. Cool!

Review and Swatches: ELF Brightening Eye Color

Edit (26th Jan 2011): I had taken better swatches pictures for these quads over UDPP. To see it click here.

I love this quads, I have tried almost all of the quads that available and I finally find the one, well, ten, that I like.

I find that the quad with matte finishes are not good. I couldn't make Brownstone, Hazy Hazel, Punk Funk and Matte Mauve work for me. The eyeshadows are too hard that I have to really rub my brush to pick up the product. It's not that pigmented and hard to blend. Pretty n' Pink and Ethereal on the other hand is too light to show up on my skin. I think it would work for porcelain fair people. Glam and Rocker are glitter madness, not all in the quads are glittery tho. I'm too old for glitter.

There are 18 different quad for Brightening Eye Color, we've gone through 8 of them. The rest, the 10 quads are the better of the lot. What they have in common is that most of them are shimmery shades.

Swatches were done w/o any base or moisturiser. Primer and bases surely will help bringing out the color vibrancy.

From to bottom:
  • Blue Moon - The dark blue, off-white and brown are soft and pigmented. The light blue is a little chalky and not so pigmented
  • Butternut - My favourite neutral palette, this quad blend easily. The lightest color is a bit hard (to pick up using brush) compared to the other 3.
  • Day 2 Night - I think this is the best of all the quads. The black is matte with slight shimmer. The other eyeshadows in the quad have metallic sheen to it.
  • Drama - Great for smokey eyes. The white is matte, but crazy pigmented. The greys have shimmer and glitter, but still okay. The black is not so pigmented, but works with the other eyeshadow in the quad.

From top to bottom:
  • Ivy -My go to palette. The quad pigmentation is great for everyday use, furthermore, the shades complement my dark brown eyes very well.
  • Luxe - Luxurious! The color are so pigmented and gorgeous, easy to blend too.
  • Nouveau Neutrals - The color doesn't show up very well on my medium skin. But I still like this for days when I'm too lazy for makeup. Well, you hardly go wrong with color that barely shown on your skin.

From top to bottom:
  • Nymph Dream - If I want a pop of color, this quad is the one I reach for.
  • Silver Lining - another palette that is gorgeous for smokey eyes. All the eyeshadows in this quad are soft and pigmented.
  • Teal Dream - Just like Silver Lining, All four eyeshadows in this quad are soft and pigmented. The blue especially is lovely with iridescent shimmer.
Eventho the packaging is small and cheap, I have no complaint. After all, it's only $1. I have no problem dipping my brush into the eyeshadow triangular pan. The size of these eyeshadow are small, but since it's quite pigmented, I think it gonna last for quite some time. This quads are far from perfect, some are powdery, the other a lil chalky. But all in all, it's great for the price. One more thing, these quads needs good primer or base to show its true potential. NYX Eyeshadow Base in White really bring out the quads vibrancy.

Would I repurchase? If I finished it up, yes.
Would I recommend? Only the ten quads that swatched in this post.

Tutorial: Lazy Sunday Green Smokey Eyes

I have this sudden urge to make a youtube video, sadly my skin is recovering from nasty clogged pores (I'm blame you Everyday Minerals base). My skin is currently in a bad condition, with redness and tiny bumps of clogged pores, doesn't look that good. Since I really wanted to do something about the video, I end up doing this tutorial. FYI, I'm not in anyway queen of blending or master of the eye makeup, but I think I did decent job for someone who learn doing makeup from blogs and youtube videos.
  • A - Apply ELF Mineral Eyeshadow Primer all over the lid up to browbone.
  • B - Apply ELF Studio Cream Eyeliner in Black on the lid extended a little over the crease as base.
  • C - Pat darkest green in ELF Essential Brightening Eye Color Ivy over the black base in B.
  • D - Apply light brown in ELF Essential Brightening Eye Color Luxe as browbone highlight.
  • E - Apply brown in ELF Essential Brightening Eye Color Ivy between C and D, blend.
  • F - Apply light grey in ELF Essential Brightening Eye Color Teal Dream on the inner corner.
  • not in picture, apply NYX Black single eyeshadow on the outer corner on top of the dark green and blend to add dimension.
For under the eye, apply light grey in ELF Essential Brightening Eye Color Teal Dream 1/3 from inner corner, darkest green in ELF Essential Brightening Eye Color Ivy 1/3 in the middle and NYX Black single eyeshadow 1/3 from the outer corner.

Lastly line the eyes with ELF Studio Cream Eyeliner in Black and apply mascara. I used Maybelline Great Lash, I can't wait to finish it up.
The camera wash out the intensity of the eyeshadow. It actually look dramatic, the kind of look I prefer for night time out.

Kuku Nail Paku - Maroon

Done using The Face Shop Nail Color in RD304 and WH003.

RD304 IMO is the most elegant maroon red nail polish I own. Somehow, it reminds me of Anne Rice's vampires. It doesn't look tacky at all with the glitters in it. The color on the nails appears much lighter compared to the bottle.

I tried to do french manicure tip using WH003. It doesn't turn out as I hope it would be.

I need to get top coat and base soon.

Update: Prettia Bubble Hair Dye Sweet Pink

Day 2
On day 2, the color appear to be much lighter on the roots. I would describe the color as dark brown with reddish hue. My hair doesn't feel dry at all, I guess the leave in conditioner really works!

Day 7
The color finally even out, it doesn't look patchy. My hair color become much more noticeable. It is reddish brown, very pretty, I like it. The dye doesn't seem to damage my hair at all. It actually become softer after I dye it. The only problem is, I can't use my ELF Studio Eyebrow Kit in Medium. If I actually used it, my eyebrow will become too dark for my hair.

p/s: I edited pictures in this post using Photoscape. Wish I know about the software earlier, it is so easy to use, and very neat! Lovin' it ^_^

Tutorial: Luxe

Hi, this is more to 'How I put my makeup on' more than a tutorial. I do this for all the laughs and giggles.
1) Apply ELF Essential Eyelid primer and blend.
2)Using ELF Essential Eyeshadow Brush, apply 'A' in Luxe quad 2/3 from eyes inner corner.
3)Using the same brush in step 2, apply 'B' 1/3 from eyes outer corner. Blend 'B' into 'A' using ELF Blending Eye Brush.
4) Using ELF Blending Eye Brush, apply 'C' in the outer corner and blend into crease.
5) Apply 'D' using ELF Blending Eye Brush on crease and blend to brow bone

Finally, apply eyeliner, mascara or/and false lashes. In the picture below, I put on 3 pieces of ELF Individual Lash Kit on the outer corner. I love how natural looking the lashes are, it can be trim for customization. It a lot more comfortable than strip lashes.

I actually enjoy preparing the pictures for this post. I don't have Adobe Photoshop or some special softwares, so I just use Paint, Microsoft Office Picture Manager and Powerpoint.

Pepper is confused.


I stumble across this two website/blog from tracking back through my feedjit. I'm a little confused, what is the purpose of these type of website. This one, I see as sort of database for some specific type of topic. It gives blurb and link to any sources(blog) that related to the search query.

Another one, kinda similar with the one above, except that it publish the source material as though its own. One of it is my post. The original post is here. I feel like someone plagiarize my work.
Da website dat confuzed me

Mind you, anti-plagiarism is in my blood, years of writing reports makes me extremely aware of plagiarism. I hate it, I hate it when I accidentally did it. The first link I include in this post is okay. I still can accept that. But the second one, geez. Every single word and picture in the original post posted there. Even the admin put link to the original post at the end of the post, I'm still unhappy. Unhappy that every single words and pictures was copied without my knowledge. I seen tons of other bloggers post in this website. Those the bloggers aware someone using their material/post/picture? I'm not, until I track my blog referal site.

That's my stuff, every single words and pictures!

Would someone help me clarify the purpose of those websites? Is it just sort of "database" thingy that I don't have to worry a thing, or, it's a plagiarize work, so that they can get high traffic and get more money from ads. I don't know. I try to contact the admin regarding the issues, I find no email or anything. So I just left a comment, letting the admin know that I know my post has been copy pasta.

Bitchy mode on?
