Maquillage ES

I bought 2 mascara and got the maquillage FOC. Its one of BHG promotion

I'm glad that i have not paid for the ES. I was quite disappointed with it. Its really sheer even after i applied a few layers on my eyes. Its abit old when i got it, exp on nov-2010 ( sa say can still us 6mth after it exp) the ES no, is GY910.

Avon: TRUE COLOR Eyeshadow Quad

My sis know a lady theat go in and out of malaysia very often. she n her collague always as her to cp Avon for them. She do charge abit of handling fee but its still dirt cheap. ..LOL..Few weeks back, i saw the avon quads in one of the catalog the lady gave us, they look lovely, look abit like chanel in term of packaging. .LOL.. One quad add up to be less than $15. i ordered 3 and the above is one of them. Its the least pretty one among the 3 i bought, i was in an advanturous mood when i bought it..Hahaaa...

Swatch for the quad

i was pretty impressed by the pigmentation. Even my Kate that cost abt $28 was no where as pigmented as this one.The colour are quite nice and it also wear quite long. i can still see the colour on my eye by the end of the day. I might consider getting the 4th qads which i didn't get last time.

Stage opening party

I went to Stage at ION opening party this evening. The party is a small one with less than 20 members attending. Over all i quite like the event, its a short and sweet one. With a makeup demo by a AU, follow by cat walk from 4 models showing stage 4 seasons make over. The whole event lasted less than 1hr and we all went back with a nail polish as welcome gift and 4 lucky winners brought home some makeup.

The look for the 4 seasons

Another purchase from Tangs

I went to Guerlain to get the Super aqua-serum set, its the same price as the super aqua serum $279 but has an additional 50ml tonner and 10ml day cream. In additional, i got some IPSA staff.

My sis and i both got a press powder, we were told that that the additional colours in the powder will correct our skin tone and make us look radiant..Will review if it really work soon.
This is the colour of the ES

We were lucky and met a generous sa and we each got additional  samples apart frrom the GWP
GWP include a tonner, moisturiser and facial wash plus a box of cotton pad and 2 pouches

The additional samples i got (my sis got similar things) include a tonner, a sunblock and few packets of serum and facial wash from their new anti-aging range.

Review: Paul & Joe line: Triple Gloss color compact

Another great find from the Paul & Joe line is their Triple Gloss color compact. A colorful swirl of three complimenting colors, this compact is perfect to be used as lip gloss, eye shadow, or anything else that you can think of. In four different color combinations, like brown, gold & blue, or brown, purple, and silver, there is a combination perfect for every complexion and eye color.

Description from LoveToKnow:

My review
I bought this at slightly more than $10 from the previous prestige warehouse sale. The gloss is thicker and more pigmented than normal lipgloss. I don't feel good using this as a lip gloss so i used it as eye gloss. Playing with it seem a bit tricky, the more i blend, the lighter the colour become, so i got to be careful not to over blend it. i used as a base to help hold my powder ES. It's not very pigmented; just give my lids a nice golden shimmer.

i quite like it but don't think i will get it again. oh, i think its quite old, even if i want to get i doubt i can find it.

Presents from My sis

My sis went to Taiwan last week during her school holiday. I asked her to CP 2 ES for me. She doesn’t use makeup not even skin care so I dare not make my request specific or complex. LOL.. I only told her to get me any 2 ESs make from Japan and it can be of any color from Watson.

I didn't know she went with a friend use makeup; in the end they got me the cheapest Japanese ES. I really love her buy...the 2 ES cost $22 only, $11 each. LOL.. In addition, she also get me some presents, she got me a pair of pooh bear sock (i love pooh pooh) and a box of my beauty diary mask (she n her friend shared 6 boxes so there are 6 diff types in that box)

She got me 2 media ES, maroon and a purples.

They are both from kanebo

Mini review for one of the ES

I tired the purple ES yesterday, I’m impressed. Its much more pigmented than kate and CD both also under kanebo. I really like it. Plus it’s really compact and easy to bring out. I have very oily eyelid, so oily that I can even oxidize ES, the ES was not oxidized and lasted for one whole day…LOL.. I’m going to ask my friend who is going to Taiwan to help me CP more. LOL..

Swtaches for the pallete

Mini diaso purchase

I saw these 2 products in diaso for quite a while but have never bought it. I decided to get them last week when I was there again..LOL..

I got the mask because I want to compare it with the Kose mask.

Other than the price different,. I want to know what else is different. .LOL..

Will review once I get to use it.. I’m a bit lazy lately, have not being doing mask. .LOL..

Meanwhile, some detail about the 2 products:

Mini purchase at drugstore plus review

This is my 1st canmake purchase. I bought this in IMM. The blusher comes with a free ES.

I have not tried the ES yet but I was pretty impressed by the blusher. It’s very pigmented. But the was a bit brownish on me. I make it more pinky by apply a light pink blusher from POP beauty. The light pink blusher alone does not show on my face. I think its too sheer for my skin tone. But over the canmake blusher, it looks really pretty… The light pink blusher is the lightest blusher in the POP beauty pink cabinet.

Kose: Esprique

This is a late post. I went with my sis to BHG to few days back and drop by the Kose counter. I wanted to check out their new makeup range: Esprique. I was really impressed by their es (individual ones). They are really pigmented. But their quads are very much less pigmented and I didn’t get any ES in the end. I bought a loose powder, a blusher and its container and my sis bought a lip gloss. I swatch all the blusher for that range and decided to get only one as the rest don’t show on my skin

Guerlain Purchase

I was on my way to Stage for my FOC eye brown trimming, and i decided to check guerlain in Tangs out...
I kind of regret doing tat now...  I made my most ex purchases there...

The Orchidee serum and moisturiser set was 44% off and i bought it at $625... before that i got 2 eyeliner and es which add up to $162, in total i spended more than $800 (plus 2 IPSA cotton pad) that night...

I got 2 set of GWP, yes, only 2 when i spend almost $800... feel quite short changed, i usually get tones of GWP when i buy Kenzoki...

Let's take a look at my skin care:

The packaging for the skin care are really posh, how i wish they could save on their packaging and make their product more affordable. ..LOL.. Both the serum and the moisturizer come in a cushioned box. The boxes and container are really big. The serum is 30ml and moisturizer is 50ml. I have similar size items but they come in much smaller packaging. .LOL..

As for the makeup, i bought eyeliner 01 and 03, one is gold and the other purple. I think the purple on is a limited edition. i got the LE ES as well.

Description and pic above from

I bought the LF from prestige warehouse sale. Bought it at $22. its really cheap as its retail at more than $60 over the counter.

Its quite fluid, therefore very easy to blend. The negative side about it is, when i pump on my hand before applying on to my face, it will flow all over my hand, will be quite messy at times.

The coverage is average, the spf is abit on the low side with only spf8. The newer LF has higher spf. I'm fine with the low spf as my day moisturizer contain spf too.

Oil control
The oil control is average, i always apply silky girl compact powder (with oil control ability as well) to set my LF. Their combine oil controlling ability can keep me shine free till evening when i applied them in the morning..

Will i buy again?
Of course, in fact i bought another one from metro exp sale the following week. I paid $25 for the 2nd one but its still a good deal.

Review: Christian Dior Radiant Base

My sis bought this and decided that she don't want it so she gave me (as usual...LOL..)

This product is a makeup base but when u pump it out, it look like liquid foundation.

Got this from Nordstrom web site:

Dior 'Diorskin Radiant Base' SPF 20 (Nordstrom Exclusive)

The luminous glow of golden ice crystals inspires Dior's dazzling new makeup base. Just a few drops retextures and smoothes the skin dramatically for a radiant, even finish plus SPF protection. The refreshing, air-light feeling makes it the perfect primer under any Dior makeup—or wear it alone for a sheer golden veil of color.


i like it as it has SPF, most of my makeup base does not have.

It is tinted so i get a good idea whether i have applied it well all over the face.


Its difficult to blend and that's the reason why my sis give me.. LOL..

i need to use a foundation brush to aid my blending

It too fair for me..

Will i buy one?

I don't think so...LOL.. i'm still trying to finish it..LOL...

Review on Chanel: PRECISION (Ultra Correction Lip)

I bought this product during BHG promotion recently, i have being using it for a while and decided to do a review on it.

What it does

Its suppose to smoothen out fine lines on lips and to pump up (a bit only for the later according to the SA).

Suspose to use it twice a day, once in the morning and once in the evening

It can be applied on cheer line as well.

It can also be applied before you apply lipstick to make the lip look fuller.


It containers 15g of cream and come in a glass container. i find it quite bulky to bring out. I have scoped some content out into a small container so i can bring it out ;)


Its about $80 plus, quite ex for a 15g items but i think it will last for at least 6 months or more. I use have used it quite often since i bought it but i still look very full.


I have a lot of lines on my lips and when i appied lip gloss, it amplify my lines. i need to applied a lot to conceal my lines. After i started using this product, i have realized that there are visible reduction of lip lines and i only need to apply 1 or 2 layers of lip gloss now.

Will i buy again?

Yes, but i think won't be so soon, need to finish this one 1st.. LOL..

1st maquillage-shiseido purchase

I went to BHG CCK on last frriday and saw Shiseido maquillage is having a promotion, buy a Full vision mascara/ liner and a full vision gloss coat mascara. Get a free contrast eye quads. I spend quite abit on channel so decided not to get.. but i was quite tempted and finally bought a se yesterday.. yes without discount.. ARRR.... oh well....

Quads is abit old, exp on nov-2010 ( sa say can still us 6mth after it exp) 2 colour ( one is ble one and the other is brown/ GY910) to choose from at BHG cck.
The 2 mascura is from look like that, Full vision mascara/ liner has a few colour to choose from. i got the pruple one


Ettusais Haul

I recieved this mailer few days back and went metro woodland to check the promotion out:

They still have the free ES, quite a few left in fact.
The free one is non glittering and you get to choose the colour u want.
I asked the SA why not the gitter ones, she was really honest n told me because the non glitter ones are not as popular....LOL..i like her honesty, will definitely get all my ettusais things from her from now one..LOL..

This is what i bought:

I bought 2 glittering ES (2 on the left), i must say the glittering ones are much nicer than the non-glitering ones. There are 2 nice non-glittering ones, the brown n black but they are not avaliable as the FOC one so i took the orangly-pink one instead.

I bought a lip stick to top up to $68, paid $69 in total.

The lip stick i bought look quite red but was pretty sheer when i applied on my lip.

GWP for this purchase:

The bottle of makeup removal come is part of the GWP while the samples on the left are all given by the SA.
