Flecks first anniversary and special 20% discounts sale :)

Wow, it's almost exactly one year since I first posted in this blog. The first post is "FLECKS started", an introduction for this blog.

Let be poyo for a while. I'm not sure the English word equivalent for 'poyo', but being 'poyo' allow the be a bit cheesy. I think cheesy can be used to describe 'poyo'. First of all, when I first started blogging, I think big. I'm dreaming of becoming a makeup guru. But as I take baby steps as beauty blogger, I started to appreciate the term 'makeup guru' and I also started to see my limitation. I'm dreaming that big because I love makeup. So I guess I decided to avoid the 'makeup guru' path and chooses to remain a makeup lover. Being a makeup lover allow me to be more honest with my blog. Especially when it comes to reviewing products. It also allow to be who I am, a person with limited makeup skill, instead of pretending I know enough to be a makeup artist or something.

But bigger than all that personal wish. I think I achieve my goal with this blog. From blog stats, I can see Flecks popular for those looking for review and swatches pictures. I hope all that helps consumers out there making better choice and stretch the value of their money.

Thanks to my blog followers for making this blog as it is today. Special thanks for special bunch of sweet bloggers that always come and visit me, not to forget leaving all those encouraging comments. You know who you are. I love you guys *huge cyber hug*.

All these in one day.

The last post about nail polish is about the NOTD below. My current favourite.
Since I had the nail look for quite some time and the tips started chipping, I tried a different look.

Since plain black a little to harsh, I add glitter polish on top, but it looks weird.
  I removed it all and started again with something neutral. But it looks a lil boring.

So I add purple on top. It looks nice.

But my hand so itchy, I add chunky glitter. It looks childish, so I remove it again.

And apply red nail polish. Still gatal tangan (itchy hand), I taped my nail and add black tip.

By this time, I'm too frustrated and tired. I end up leaving my nail like this even tho I'm still not satisfied.

Simple EOTD 5/8/11

 Simple eye makeup that can be done in less than 3 minutes.

I used
 ELF Metallic Olive Cream Eye Liner as base.

 Applied taupe shade from ELF Ivy Quad to blend the eye liner base.

And one coat of mascara since the weather is really hot today.

p/s: I noticed using lipgloss during fasting is the best way to test how long it would last.

Current favourite nail polish combination.

Pardon me for the pic, especially the nail tips. It look like this because the picture taken about 4 days after it was first applied. Anyway, currently, this is my favourite nails look. It looks more peachy corally than in the picture, but it is really that shiny. Hehehe. I like this one in particular as it is simple, pretty and the tip wear off nicely instead of cracking just like that.

I used one coat L.A. Colors Nail Lacquer in Suede as base as Elianto Nail Color in Coral Light stains nail badly. I apply two thin coat of Coral light followed by one or two coat of The Face Shop WH003.

The real star for this combination is The Face Shop WH003. I have this bottle for about 2 years and it is still good. It's pretty sheer, which makes it great for transforming other nail color. It is like doubling your nail color collection. After all, this is the closest I get to holo nail is so hard to find holo nail polish, let alone cheap one.

First day of Ramadhan, a couple of hours before sungkey. So far, so good...the only thing is, I don't like feeling so dehydrated.

Again, I'm slowing down with this blog as I find it is hard to be passionate about makeup when you're not wearing them. But really, I have to start posting more regularly.

Regarding my skin condition, it's recovering, but I think it gonna be long before it look decent again. So much acne stains/hyperpigmentation and comedon still there. Acne itself is under control, I have few break outs during time of the month, besides that, no new pimples surfacing. Turn out, the simplest skincare with good supplement is the one that works.

So yeah, I don't know how to end this post. (this makes me want to Monty Phyton, off to Youtube then).

Till next post :)
