So I have been procrastinating the whole weekend...to be fair, I have been busy, out and about, and just didn't feel like taking a whole ton of pictures and uploading them etc etc.. but finally it's Sunday morning, and I have some time to just put things in order, and keep you guys updated of what are some upcoming entries in the next week or so.
Let's start with Friday afternoon. After I posted the Tangs Bazaar information, and later on when my sis told me there is RMK going on, most of us here were buzzing about it... I didn't actually go there in person, but my sis who went during her lunch hour, managed to help me haul some more of the creamy base for stock up.. I also got the 00 shade which Amy and Chantana bought, just to try it out. And I got 2 of the 01 shades, one for me, and one for the gf. --- and you do know I am using the term 'gf' in the most girly/ bff way, yea? :p
I noticed a difference in the packaging, I guess the one at the bazaar is the 'old' packaging? Anyway, I tested both out yesterday, meaning I squeezed a little of the 'old' one and the 'new' one, the product seems to work out the same effect and all.... so whatever, I think that's alright.. :)
On Friday, I spent a good part of the afternoon organising a pineapple tart baking demo at work... I am not the 'teacher' cos I am not good at baking, clearly.. but it was fun, and everyone who went got to bring home a batch of their own freshly baked tarts, so that was a rather fun event.
And Friday night is when the girls come out to play, of course.. haha, so very cheesy I know.. and of course, the camera came out and we started posing away.
I sent this picture to lissasioux (check out her blog here) who wanted to see a swatch of the YSL RV in #19... and so I decided to use this lipstick when I went out that night.
So this is what I am wearing MU wise:
Face: My usual routine, Cheeks: Panic Blusher, Lips: YSL RV19 - Frivolous Pink, Eyes: Benefit Fawn over Me e/s, Highbrow pencil Lashes: Shu Uemura Black Leather which I have raved about here and here. and the YSL Singular Mascara in Violet which of course, you can't tell from the picture. The verdict on the lashes? I am going to buy a couple more pairs to keep.. since they are LE... next week, next week!!
And the outfit.. close up, for the accessories:
I am wearing a jumpsuit (that one piece thingy, what do you call it?) which I bought at Forever21 last Dec and never got to wearing it. It is of the perfect length, and costs $49 or smth like that. I layer it with a grey raceback tank from Bershka ($19?) .. and the necklaces, I coiled the Lorraine necklace twice around my neck, and also threw on my Tiffany & Co necklace which I coiled around twice too.. so that's a little bunch of metalware going on.
And the rest of the outfit. Seriously I don't know what's up with my camera settings, but I like the effect! All this blurness going on is very flattering to my figure, no? I matched the jumpsuit with a studdy belt, cos the black sash it comes with is too bulky and matchy matchy, so the belt goes way nicer. And the shoes you might remember I got from New Look some time back.
And a wonky eyed pic of me, and cutesy pic of the sister.
My sister also brought back some products which were given to her at work ( courtesy of her office toiletries and cosmetics department), which is this Korean brand liquid cum lash glue product, I have seen the shops at Far East plaza selling them... but they aren't that cheap for me to just buy for the heck and try.. so this is a good time to test it out... I haven't used it... my sister should do this though.. cos she wears her lashes everyday... but a swatch test tells me I won't be liking this.. cos the glue residue gets kind of icky when I tried to rub it away...
And speaking of reviews.... I should get started on my ZA cosmetics trial and swatching soon... maybe later today, when the daylight is still conducive for swatching, seeing Kas' very prompt updates make me a little guilty for not getting this done asap after my little 'haul' entry on the day I received them. I want to do some LOTDs, test out their staying power, try out different ways of wearing them etc to give as detailed a review as I can.
And another quick review... I really like the La Mer Gel cream... it is so rich, but never left any oily feeling on my face, and even when I wake up in the morning, my face is not dry, and no oily feeling too! But at $300+ for that 60ml tub.... Gosh. I think the more rational side of me would rather spend it on a airticket to somewhere (like HK? BK?) for a shopping spree trip.... oh man... tough choices to make.
On Sat, I went about town again, for the most part of the afternoon, thankfully this time around, we drove about instead of walked about.. so that wasn't too bad.. heh.. nothing very exciting and eventful.
I probably left out some stuff which I should talk about... but yea, I think that's about it. And oh, Amy texted me last night... the China Glaze stuff are here!!! Excitement maximus!!
P/S: The serious blingy phone covers I got, they are getting too much attention!! From work people and friends.. LOL!! Now everyone wants to get them... Yeah to cheapo blingy phone covers! :)
What's everyone doing on their Sunday? I am heading out to lunch with the family soon.
