Drugstore haul


My haul around 2 weeks ago..I know it's quite late to post, as I'm busy and had problem with my camera.
So here is my first post after my sharing session with u :)
I got :

  • L'oreal Hip cream eyeliner in Midnight Blue
  • L'oreal Hip cream eyeliner in Eggplant
  • Maybelline lipstick in Pink Bloom
  • Maybelline lipstick in Iced Peach Tea
  • Maybelline lipglosses 4 pcs which I forgot what shade it is
  • Sariayu loose powder
  • Marck venus loose powder
I really like my loose powder from Marcks Venus, it's so soft and light, it's not cakey at all.
Proud to say both of my loose powders are made by Indonesia.
Some said that Sariayu loose powder has a great coverage like NARS loose powder even though not finely milled as NARS. However the price is only $1 or RM2.
I still have lots of hauls to post, stay tune ;)

I still remember yesterday, when 4 in the morning, I heard a phone call and my mom picked up the call..
Immediately she shout and crying because she just could not believe that my grandpa has passed away..
When me and my sister heard she shout, we ran to downstairs and I hugged my mom..
I was crying too..
My mom kept saying that she asked my grandpa to wait for her...She's planning to visit my grandpa on Friday this week ( 4th Dec) because my aunt in Hong Kong asked my mom to wait for her.
She needed someone as companion.
My mom cried and cried, it was the first time for me to see her cry..
I will be honest that I was not crying because I lost my grandpa..
Yes, I'm sad but it had been 5 years since the last time I saw him, we rarely spent time together or even a small chat.
It because my mom, it's so pain to see her cry, kept saying that she asked my grandpa to wait for her..
She is in West Kalimantan, Pontianak now where my grandpa stayed.
I keep thinking and worrying about her..Keep remembering when she cried..
Once I told her that this is the best because my grandpa had been very sick since last 2 years and he suffered from depressed because his very bad son.
I believe that my grandpa in a better place now..
Thanks to anyone for the condolences..

Saturday, November 28, 2009

R.I.P

Rest in peace Grandpa..
We love u..

Saturday, 28 Nov 2009, at 4am he pass away..
Mom keeps crying..It's a heart pain.

But I believe that this is the best, even though we are sad for losing you..

Weekend haul and some packages



I just went home and I reached my computer immediately. Well, nothing special, just want to share my happiness. First picture is my haul today, several hours ago. I bought Revlon Colorstay eyeliner in Black, high raved in MUA, so I had no doubt to get it. I need this to use as my daily makeup. I don't want to use Bobbi Brown gel eyeliner for daily. I also got 2 lipsticks from Maybelline, they have promotion BOGO 50%, I just couldn't resist it. I got Cranberry Pink and Sweet Coral, both of them are gorgeous. Give a look :)
The second picture is the packages that I got this week. Actually I got 3 packages, including the one that I got from Ryan. The second package is NARS Oasis, which I swapped with NARS Dolce Vita that I owned.
I wore it today and I would say is just OK, nothing special. At least it's not as bad as I thought. I was thinking it would make my face look dirty. However, I got it from swap so I didn't lose any money, just sell it.
The last package is Dior. I got the DIOR Pure Light fluid foundation and DiorKiss Luscious Lip Plumping Lipgloss.
I used the foundation today, it's so sheer, light texture and coverage. Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation SPF 15 is much better. If you already have flawless skin and need something to create brighter, healthier skin, this one could be your choice. If you have acne spot, just skip it.
I am so happy today and I can't wait for another package.
Enjoy ur weekend :)

Lovely package from M'sia

I am so happy today. When I went home I saw a lovely package on the table. And it's from M'sia. I thought it takes two weeks, but I was wrong.
Let me share with you what I got



Urban Decay Complexion Primer Potion - Pore Perfecting
NARS Powder Blush in Mata Hari
Urban Decay Baked Bronzer in Toasted

Special thanks to Ryan for being so patient with me. I am a bad customer.
I wish Ryan open US makeup spree in Indonesia.
I can order anything, anywhere, anytime.
It's so silly when once I asked someone to order Kiss My Face moisturizer for me but she refused as she said it's big but cheap, she wouldn't get lots of profit from there.
Damn silly. You can quote a bit higher since it's heavy, right ?
Ryan is much smarter than you.
Boo.

Btw, today is my first day working and it's my first job as well. I hope everything is going well so I don't have to use my parent money anymore.
I hope I can get higher salary one day, of course for spending it for makeup :D

My favorite blusher from La Femme Blush on Rouge


I should say that I love them all :) I only have 5 pcs but I really love the colors and satisfy with what I got. I wish to buy again, but it's troublesome as I have to order from them in M'sia.
I have Crystal Cafe, Framboeisia, Pink Velvet, Coral Spice and another one that I forgot since I put in a jar. They are fragile so when it's arrived 2 of them were shattered.
Basically all of them are pink, but have different affect to ur cheeks. The colors they have look different and unique, not like common pink from most brands have.
Love it ! Seems like I can't get enough to tell you what I think about this blusher. I wish I can collect all of them :)

My favorite blusher from MAC


I have few of blushers and some of them are my favorite. And in this post, I will share with you what my favorite from MAC. Of course I have other blusher from various brands, but let's do it slowly.
In this picture I have :

  • Joyous from Beauty Powder collection, I love the color, peach with gold sparkles and I look so fresh whenever I'm using it
  • Dainty, my first MAC blusher and it's mineral blush. Pink with shimmer helps me to glowy. It has smooth texture and quite pigmented.
  • Gentle, mineralize blush that I got together with Dainty. Steven ( SA of MAC) really made a good choice for me. The color looks purple-ish but when I apply this, it looks plummy.
  • Plum Foolery. I never thought before that plum color would suit my fair skin tone. But this one is a really nice blush that I will repurchase.
  • Pink Swoon. Most girls out there love this blush and it's a must have from MAC. this is my hubby favorite honestly, not me. For it's just ok.
  • Pinch O Peach. Naturally blush look healthy and pretty color is enough to tell how I love this blush. However I don't think this as a peach blusher, it's more to pink side.
  • Summer Rose from Rose Romance. First time I had this, I hate it. I could not see any color when I tried to apply it. It's not pigmented at all, so I need to swipe several times, which is worth it. It's not a common pink, I feel it's kinda unique color with a nice sheen.
  • Angel. It has been discontinued. Too bad as I like it :) A bit pale but suits me well.
I am planning to get another blusher from MAC such as Style, Sunbasque, Margin, Well Dressed, etc. But not now, since I have NARS fever hehe..
I am waiting for NARS Oasis and Mata Hari to come. I already placed an order for NARS Amour too. Too bad Sephora doesn't have NARS in Crazed.
Not only NARS, but other blusher as well. I will share with you once it's arrived :)
I decided to take a short time to not get anything from MAC, so I won't feel so bored :P

My Primers Collection

from left to right :

  • Le Blanc De Chanel Sheer Illuminating makeup base
  • MAC Prep and Prime Skin Base Visage
  • The Faceshop *
  • Laura Geller Spackle
  • Bare Escentuals Prime Time
  • Etude House *
  • Etude House On Screen Primer
  • Laneige Makeup Primer Sebum Control
Sorry but I forgot what the exactly name of The Faceshop and Etude House and I was too lazy to find out from my makeup case.
I fell in love with primer since I used Laneige Makeup Primer Sebum Control. I feel my skin is so smooth whenever I apply this primer. It's my favourite, together with Laura Geller, Bare Escentuals and Le Blanc De Chanel.
The rest are okay, nothing special except MAC. It feels nice but too shimmery. While for Etude House, the one that I forgot the name, is the least of my favorite. Not nice since it makes my foundation becomes cakey.
I'm waiting for Urban Decay, the one that is for pore refining. Can't wait to try :)

Another MAC Blusher to add in my collection


I received these blushers few days ago, but I was too lazy to post about it.
So here I go, show off what I got.
MAC Powder Blush in Mocha and Coygirl.
Coygirl seems like a unique color, it's purple in the pan and I have yet try it out on my cheeks.
Mocha is pink with a bit plum, I fell in love since I tried it at MAC counter and now I have it :)
I still have lots of MAC Powder Blush that I want to get, but I think I want to get rest from MAC for a while and try something new.
I can't wait to get other blushers that I already ordered. I have to wait around a month. That's a long time to go, hope it's worthy :)

Ciao !

Signature Minerals Soft Finish Brush review


A brush that comes in travel size that you can carry anytime, anywhere. This brush has incredible softness and just like the name, it gives you soft finishing.
I use this for applying bronzer and the result is perfect. It doesn't pick up too much powder of the bronzer, so it gives you the right amount for contouring. Too much is not okay.
I love this more than MAC 168 that used to I use for contouring. MAC 168 picks too much powder and brings me so fake contouring, which look like beard.
I'm start thinking that spend so much money for MAC brushes is not necessary. You can find as nice as MAC brushes but with cheaper price out there.
Do you any brushes that you love that is not from MAC ? Do share.

Too Faced Retractable Kabuki Brush review

Love this brush so much. I almost sell it but then I decided to give a try.
I'm a blusher freak and it's important for me to use it and look perfect with blush. However, I'm not confident enough that I already good enough with my method when I apply blusher.
I watched video tutorial and found the good one.
She used MAC Brush 187, but I'm not tempted to get that brush as it's expensive, so I use the brush that I already owned.
I saw my make up case and realized that I never use this brush before. I was not sure I want to use it for what purpose. I was thinking that if I used it for blusher, it would end up not nice as the brush is too big.
But I was so wrong when I used it 2 days ago. It applied smoothly on my cheeks and gave me soft finishing. The powders that picked up from this brush definitely stick on my cheeks, not at the brush.
Now it's my favorite if I want to use blusher, especially pigmented blusher such as NARS. For me, this is my MAC 187 but cheaper. I bought it for $28, now they increase the price to $30.
For not so pigmented, I prefer use MAC 168, the angled blush brush. I learned how to use blusher using MAC 168 from video tutorial too, before this I used it for bronzer. But it's too fluffy and too big as I apply bronzer for contouring.
Now I'm using another brush for bronzer which works so well and I will do the review soon.

Look what I found !

Yesterday I went to mall because I was so bored.
As usual, I visited MAC counter, played with the blusher. How I wish can get them all *LOL
To my surprise, when I played with those blushers in the display, I found powder blush that had been discontinued.
When I swatch it on my hand, it looked pretty, almost similar with Well Dressed.
Did u get the clue what blusher it is ?


It's MAC Powder Blush in Angel ! It's pinker than Well Dressed when u swatch it on ur hand, even though it looks same in the pan. Angel is matte, while Well Dressed has silver shimmer in it. Both of them are pretty, but I got this one first, as I'm afraid it will OOS.
If this one OOS, I had no chance to get it next time.
I can't wait to use it :)

Other than Angel, I found Cute ! It's paler than Angel and Well Dressed. I think it's not flattering. I should look like Snow White, so it would nice on me, NC20 skintone :)

Btw, what is ur favorite LE blusher from MAC ? Share with me !

Bubye !

Sunday, October 11, 2009

It's been a month plus since my last post. I had lots of things happened.
I was sick and sick then I found out it's because I was having a baby.
I was shock but well, my hubby happy to hear that :)
Too bad last week I was miscarriage :(
I cried, so did my hubby.
I felt so empty, because used to there is a small creature that ate and breath from me.
When I watched tv, it's a heart pain to see ads about pregnant woman or baby.
I always "talked" to my baby to tell her/him that I am so sorry. It's not her/his time to be here.
And she/he will be happy to stay in heaven with God.
Tell me that Im crazy, but if u are in my position, u know how it feels.
I dont have anything to say anymore.
That's a short update from me.



Baby, ur mom and dad always love u.
Maybe heaven is the right place for u.

Make Up For Ever Face and Body liquid foundation

Just a short review from me.
Among all those liquid foundations that MUFE has, the best seller are :

  1. HD Foundation
  2. Face and Body Foundation
  3. Mat Velvet
I have HD Foundation but I don't like it as I found it made me cakey. So my another choices would be Face and Body or Mat Velvet. Finally I got Face and Body in hand yesterday by shopping online. She sells it cheaper than retail, $29.55 or Rm 114 including shipping.
I prefer this one than Mat Velvet as I love the texture. It's water based but the texture is semi gel. Today I tried it and I love how it felt on my skin, it has cool sensation. It's so easy to blend and I felt like I didn't wear anything. Looked like my own skin. So I could say that this foundation doesn't have good coverage, it's very light. So I need to use concealer.
Other than that, it's long lasting and didn't make my skin oily. Overall I love it :)
I give 4 from 5 :D

My bf's favourite :D


Last week my bf asked me to wear new blusher that I got from him. So between Pink Swoon and Pinch O Peach, I chose Pink Swoon. Both of them are popular in Makeupalley. So I think I made a good choice to get them both :D
When me and my bf met, he asked what blusher that I used. I told him it's Pink Swoon that I got from him. He looked amazed and he said that he liked it so much :D
He said it's the most natural blusher that I ever worn and it's the greatest among those blushers that I had used. Usually he could see that I use blusher, but with Pink Swoon I looked naturally blushing :p
I think I have to learn how to use blusher to look more natural.
Maybe I used too much and looked fake.
Well thanks to my bf, with his honesty I knew my mistake xD

Back to MAC old collection


picture credits to beautyaddict.blogspot.com

Still remember this collection ? MAC Beauty Powder Blush collection in March 2008.
I was looking for it as I like the blushers from that collection. I am late as a MAC collector. And I just can't ignore this collection, I love blusher so much and I had seen the swatches. So lovely.
Two days ago finally I had one of them which my most favorite among other blusher based on the swatches.
I got it by online, I joined a forum and she had MAC Joyous which she decided to sell. She only used it for 3 times and sell it for RM 70.20 including shipping if convert to Ringgit.
I don't need to think twice.
Two days ago I received it. Very fast seller. I paid on 1st Sept, I received it in the next day.
The color is peachy almost to orange I think.
I have yet wear it, tomorrow I will meet my bf and planning to use it :D

Thursday, September 3, 2009

I am stress, sad and lonely. I have no spirit, even to talk with others.
I have problem with my sister and brother, I hate their attitudes. And I don't understand why my sister suddenly ignores me.
I am so tired with her. She did this to me for 3 years, we didn't talk at all, which finally stopped 2 years ago. But she started it again.
I feel like I want to run. I hate to stay at home.
My mom could see that I'm lonely so she tried to talk with me.
But I feel so stress so I just keep quite.
Until yesterday I asked my bf to call me and I told him everything, how I feel and why.
I cried and he only asked me to be patient.
I felt much better after that. However, when he's busy and I'm at home, I still feel lonely.
He's worried with me.
I have no idea what I should do.
I am so tired.
I'm starting hate my sister and brother.
I should get a job soon to make myself busy.
I don't want to give a shit about my relationship with my siblings.
I will do my best for myself, parents and my bf.

Lovely gifts from the loveliest

Hehe, not sure if got that such kind of word, loveliest =p
It doesn't matter, bcoz in my post here, I have lots of thing to share.
So yesterday, I was going to meet my bf and I reached the shopping mall at 10.30. So early, huh ? But then, my bf had not reached the place yet since it;s quite far from his house.
So, I decided to kill my time with browsing to MAC Counter. A sales assistant name's Eva greeted me, she's quite friendly so I asked her this and that.
I asked about the prices of the brushes, then start from there we talked a lot. I told her that MAC Malaysia is much cheaper and mostly I bought MAC there. She share with me lots of things that I didn't know before.
First, MAC Indonesia is franchise, different with MAC M'sia which is under Estee Lauder Company. Bcoz of that reason, MAC Indonesia doesn't have MAC Pro Member.
Second, MAC Indonesia could not follow all those collections, which mostly launch every month. Because MAC Indonesia has to register all those product to BPOM, an organization from government who check about the safety, etc.
Third, MAC Pro member in US got 40% discount, correct me if I'm wrong.
Fourth, MAC Hong Kong is the cheapest among all Asia countries.
I got lots of acknowledge from her and she served me well, so I decide to get something. Honestly, I ady had my shopping list. MAC Powder Blush in Pink Swoon and Well Dressed. But when I swatched it, Well Dresses is too light. So I took Pink Swoon. While she was serving other customer, I browsed the counter and I found Pinch O Peach on the display and I asked for the tester so I could swatch on my hand.
It's a nice and lovely color so I decided to take it.
Seems like two items were not enough for me, kept browsing and I remembered that I need something for my eyebrows. I want it to look neat and nice, she suggested me the MAC Brow Shader.
She tried it on me and I love it. After another half hour, my bf came and bought it for me as my b'day gifts. A bit late, but it's better than nothing.
Yesterday we had great time, we talked a lot and shopped a lot =p
Here's my haul

MAC Pink Swoon, Pinch O Peach and Brow Shader in Walnut/Ivory.
2 brushes which have good quality, love it. I bought this for Brow Shader.
2 lipsticks from Maybelline, Naturally Nude and Revlon, Pink In the Afternoon.

Overall, I really love with what I got and I will diet for the rest of August. I ady have something in my mind for September shopping list :)
Btw, I got good news from the SA, Make Up Art collection will be launched in Indonesia in September, I will ask her to reserve for me the 2 blushers.
That's all from me. I want to enjoy me new stuffs :)
Bye

Revlon New Complexion Fluid Foundation review

description :
For completely undetectable coverage. The lightweight formula gives you perfectly smooth, even-toned skin that breathes.
Oil-free, irritant-free, and won't clog pores.

I had tried this 2 times, with and without primer. Both of them had perfect result. Love it.
I will tell u why.
When I pour out onto my palm, it felt that the texture was kinda thick, I had bad feeling that it's not gonna be good (cakey). But once put it on my face using my brush, it glided smoothly and it didn't feel thick. I could see that my face looked instantly brighter and fresher. I love it, I had no problem with cakeyness at all.
While for coverage, yes, it has good coverage as I saw myself in the mirror that was not necessary to put concealer anymore. Furthermore, I'm not a fan of concealer.
If u are questioning about the oil control, since my skin is not that oily, I could not say a lot. And I spend my time mostly indoor. But at least, it didn't make me look oily.
I keep saying the good thing, that how about the cons ? The packaging, same like Colorstay, no air pump bottle. It's kinda troublesome, as when I pour out, I probably accidentally pour too much.
Well, with a very cheap price and all the good things that I love, I think I could bare with it. For me, it's like Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation SPF 15 but the cheaper version.
I would give points 4.5 from 5.
FYI, mine is the old one. They have the another one which is new formula with different packaging. What I read from Makeupalley, they prefer the old version. Too bad, it's a bit difficult to find. I hope Revlon Indonesia will keep this great foundation.
Cheers.

I'm back and a review

Finally Im getting better. I never sick like this long, a week ! Which make me feel so stress and tired. Well seems nobody cares, lets continue with a review.
As I promise, a review about ELF Mineral Blush.


Rose, Bliss, Joy

ELF Mineral Blush is not so popular I think. At least from the spree that I join, mostly order the $1 stuffs. While me, never order or interested with ELF bcoz looks cheap and no quality. Yeah, can't judge a book by its cover, but I do believe people always tempted to buy something bcoz the cute or elegant packaging.
ELF Mineral blush interest me bcoz it's the cheapest mineral blush I have seen and they have pretty colors. Beside that, it said that no parabens, no chemical dyes and no preservatives so it's quite guarantee about the safety.
I got Rose, Bliss and Joy. All of them are pretty :)
Texture wise, it's smooth and blend nicely. However, if compare with La Femme blusher, they are not so pigmented. Joy and Bliss I think only can use for u who has fair to light skin tone.
Me myself needs to swipe several times until the color appears.


Joy, Bliss and Rose

Rose has the darkest color, so u can see the color appear easily. Joy is sweet pink, Bliss is peach and Rose is dark pink. All of them have shimmers, but still acceptable.
Two days ago, I put Joy after MAC Powder Blush in Fleur Power, but I didn't see any difference as I thought it could give me a nice glow.
Overall, I like it, 3.5 out of 5.
Repurchase ? No. I prefer to get another mineral blusher.
I hope my review gonna help u.
Bye.

Sick =(

I have been sick since 2 days ago, but today is the worst, kept vomiting. Feel better now. But I'm not sure how I am until tonight.
A bit tired.
Btw, here's a pic that I love :)

I got this pic from Sephora.com.
I love the clean look yet glamor.
Well that's all my super short update. I need some sleep -.-'
Bye !

First haul =)

Hallo gurls ! Seems like everybody is curious about ELF Mineral blusher that I got. I manage to post about the review but not now. Hope u can wait a lil bit longer. I have few things that I want to post about xD
First of all, I'm really excited to tell u that finally after a long time, I bought some makeup in Indonesia ! It's quite difficult since we have limited brands and even for one brand, they don't bring all the collections here. Malaysia is much better.
So here's what I got (sorry for the blur picture) :



Revlon Plump Sexxxy Lipstick in Pure Pleasure : Rp 50.000 or RM 17.55
Revlon New Complexion Fluid Foundation in 02 : Rp 65.000 or RM 22.80
Bourjois Blusher in 54 Rose Frisson : Rp 104.000 or RM 36.50

Proud to say that we have Bourjois here and that time they have 20% discount at Watson. The actual price is Rp 130.000 or Rm45.61. If they don't have the discount, I won't buy it =p
And yeah, another blusher after I talked to myself not to buy any blusher again, lol.
For Revlon New Complexion fluid foundation, I think it's something new for Malaysian readers. Because they don't have this in Malaysia. Correct me if I'm wrong.
This foundation promises a good coverage but u feel like wear nothing. If u check from the site, it's different from the packaging and what I read from Makeupalley, it's probably the new formula.
I can't wait to try it. It's my first foundation from Revlon. I know I should get the Colorstay foundation because it's the best seller foundation from Revlon that ady approved by lots of beauty blogger. Well, I will get it later, bcoz now I have shopping list that I really eager to get.
I can't wait for Saturday to meet my bf and shopping with him ! xD
Btw, I want to show a pic about my hauls from 2 weeks in Malaysia =p

If I show them all together u can see how many stuffs that I bought xD I got a brush for eyeliner too that I bought in Sasa, next to the NYX lipsticks. and I only need 2 weeks to get 15 pcs blushers, crazy huh ?
Ok, that's all from me, hope u enjoy it :D How about u ? What u get this week ?
Share with me :D

Last haul before I went back home =)

Yeah, my last package that I received exactly on the day I went back to Indonesia. I was worried for a whole week. I could not track from post Malaysia and when I went to the office center, they said they could not find it. I was hopeless.
To my surprise, when I went to my house in M'sia to take my luggage, I saw the package on my table !



That's what I got, quite a lot huh ? ;)
I got :
ELF Studio bronzer in Warm
ELF Studio bronzer in Golden
ELF Mineral blush in Rose
ELF Mineral blush in Joy
ELF Mineral blush in Bliss
NYX Lipstick in Twig
NYX Lipstick in Cocoa
NYX Lipstick in Aphrodite
NYX Lipstick in Champagne
La Femme blusher in Cyrstal Cafe
La Femme blusher in Framboeisia

It was my first time purchased ELF makeup, before this I only had the Studio powder blush that I decided to sell it. Maybe u will say that I'm stupid to sell that very nice brush, well I just have too many =p
So far I only tried the Mineral blush in Rose, no break out, long lasting and quite pigmented. It said that no parabens, no preservatives and no chemical dyes. I found that ELF is made in China, maybe that's the reason why the price is very cheap. However, I'm only interested to get the studio and mineral line. The $1, for me look like crap.
Btw, the ELF Studio bronzer is huge ! Bigger than Jane bronzer, which contained 12 gr. I have yet tried it, but it has shimmer, both of them. Too bad as I was looking for matte one.
While for La Femme, I love Framboiesia, fuchsia with shimmer. The brightest blusher I ever had I think. It looks scary, but it's so pretty once I tried it =)
And once again, I am disappointed with NYX Lipstick, Champagne and Aphrodite looked so ugly on me. Muddy lips or got poison, that's what I think when I saw my lips in the mirror. Scary.
Maybe I will use it for shading, if it works well.
Is there anyone can recommend me nude lipstick ?



Cheers

Please don't vomit =p

LOL, I thought u will know what this post will be about.
Well, this post will show blushers (again) that I got from MAC. I had showed u half of them, which are from Colour Craft Collection, Fad Dabulous and Style Demon. I have yet tried Style Demon, so I can't say what I think about. While for Fad Dabulous I used it for once and I forgot how it looked on me, LOL.
When I went to MAC, I was planning to get MAC Powder Blush in Pinch Me but the SA told me it's oos. So I played with the powder blushers that displayed at the counter. I found my new love ! Melba and Plum Foolery. Melba is pink peachy color, I love it, so nice ! While Plum Foolery, even I don't have it, but it reminds me with NARS Sin.


Picture of my new blushers, so yeah I add another stuffs for my MAC and blusher collection.
I know, u ady sick with it, LOL.
Well, I think my next haul, which will be in this month, I won't buy any blusher.
I am thinking to get cream foundation and eyeshadow =p

My first La Femme blushers haul

La Femme blusher, I knew about this blusher from someone who wanted to get it so badly. I tried to google what the good thing about this blusher is. Unfortunately, I could not find lots of information. But mostly blogger said it's very pigmented. Since I'm a blusher maniac, I decided to order some.
I only need 2 weeks until it reached me.
But I was dissapointed because 2 of those 3 blushers were shattered.
Then I had idea to move it to a jar, so it would be loose powder blusher.


I got Pink Velvet, Coral Spice and Stormy Rose. I love all of them. The colors look so bright and I never have bring pink before. But once, I put it on my face, it's so pretty =)
It's quite long lasting, while for the texture, it's not as smooth as NARS. Overall, it's a good blusher and with that price, I certainly want to get more.
Is there anyone got La Femme blusher too ? Share with me what color u got and how do u find it =)

"Stay With You"

We've been together for a while now
We're growing stronger everyday now
It feels so good and there's no doubt
I will stay with you as each morning brings sunrise
And the flowers bloom in springtime
On my love you can rely
And I'll stay with you

Oh I'll stay with you through the ups and the downs
Oh I'll stay with you when no one else is around
And when the dark clouds arrive
I will stay by your side
I know we'll be alright
I will stay with you

Though relationships can get old
They have the tendency to grow cold
We have something like miracle
Yeah, and I'll stay with you

Oh I'll stay with you through the ups and the downs
Oh I'll stay with you when no one else is around
And when the dark clouds arrive
I will stay by your side
I know we'll be alright
I will stay with you

And there will be heartaches and pains, yes it will
But through it all, we will remain
In this life, we all know
Friends may come, and they may go
Through the years I know
I will stay
And in the end I know that we'll find
Love so beautiful and divine
We'll be lovers for the lifetime, yeah
And I'll stay with you
I will stay with you

Oh I'll stay with you through the ups and the downs

And when the dark clouds arrive
I will stay by your side
I know we'll be alright
I will stay with you
Everything will be fine
And I will stay with you
Through the end of time
I will stay with you

I can't get enough with blusher ;)

I am really crazy about blusher. For someone who has fair to light skin tone, it is necessary to have blusher. At least, for me because I love how a girl look with blusher.
Everytime I go to any makeup counter , I will look for the blusher.
And in these hauls, which I did in different day, I got myself blushers from brands that I never tried before.
Shu Uemura and Make Up Store.



If u do read my previous post, my first makeup from Shu would be these blushers.
I got myself M Red 15 and P Red 14. Adorable yet challenging and sophisticated color. I never got red color for blusher before. However, I need to be careful since I have light skin tone, or else I will be end up look like a clown. These blushers are very smooth yet pigmented. I love them and even though it's more expensive than MAC, it's worth it.
While for Make Up Store, I have Sugar Muffin, such a lovely color. I love Make Up Store blushers, they are pretty. It's more expensive than MAC, RM 79. But the contain is lesser than MAC Powder blush. However, This blusher is really nice and it does show the color. So for RM 79 it's paid off.
Lucky that we have it in Indonesia, so I can get another blusher from them. It's been a long time I didn't shop in Indonesia, now it's the time ;) LOL
And just for extra information, I asked the SA of Make Up Store and she told me they have the membership that I can use world wide, Rm 50 for one year.

Drugstore Haul

I am crazy about bronzer and I use it for contouring, even I know that bronzer is not for contouring or shading. U use bronzer to look tan, which very suitable for summer makeup. Unfortunately, it doesn't suit with very fair skin because it will look dirty. That's why mostly Japan and Korean makeup dont have bronzer. Correct me if I'm wrong.I have light skin tone, which I hope will look tanner or slightly darker. Because I think it looks healthier.
I always wanted to try bronzer until I got myself bronzer from MAC Style Warrior and since then, I love it so much. However, MAC Bronzer powder is not a perfect choice. Refined Golden has shimmer and I think not really pigmented so I need to put it several times.
Solar Riche is a bit orangy and it's not nice.
Since I was in tight budget, I decided to get from Drugstore.



From the above :
Cornsilk Blushing Bronzer Shine Control, Bronze
Jane Oil Free Powder Oil-Free Bronzing Powder, Sunkissed Bronze
Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Custom Bronzer Blush & Eye Shadow in Malibu Strip/Pink Sand Bronzer

I love the bronzer from Jane, it's matte and very pigmented, I only need to swipe 2 times to use it as contouring.
While from Physicians Formula, I use it as highlighter. I dont think can use it as bronzer, too shiny. While for eyeshadow, the darkest color didn't show as it supposed to.
Cornsilk is a good bronzer too, but it has shimmer while I'm looking for matte one.

Overall, Jane bronze powder is my favorite so far. Is there anyone can suggest me good matte bronzer ?
Thanks

NYX Haul

My first package when I just arrived in M'sia. I bought 3 pcs lipsticks, which I had no idea why suddenly I ordered lipsticks as I'm not a fan of lipstick. I didn't use lipstick much often, only when I put my makeup on. I didn't do touch up.
But, now I always bring lipstick with me whenever I go out.
So here's what I got :

I got NYX Lipsticks in Opal and Spoiled, the only one NYX Round Lipstick in Athena. All those colors were now what I expected. Spoiled is bright pink, Opal is white, Athena is light frosty pink. I was disspointed. But I decided not to throw them to the bin, I had to find a way to make it work on me. So I put Spoiled lightly and blended with my finger, it looks nice =) While others, I mix with darker color.
Have u tried any lipstick from NYX ?
Do share and recommend me =) Proud to say, I can find NYX in Indonesia :D

Wednesday, August 5, 2009

Finally, I'm in Indonesia again :)
Even though I don't enjoy the makeup shopping here, but nearby with my family is the best thing I always ever have.
Spent 2 weeks in M'sia, I had very good time =)
Since it's quite short time, I didn't bring lots of makeup and I had lots of things that I need to bring home.
So I decided to only bring this :


For face :

  • Givenchy Sub'limine Fluid Foundation
  • Bare Escentuals Prime Time (primer)
  • MAC MSF Natural in Light
For eyes :
  • Bobbi Brown Long Wear gel eyeliner in black
  • Covergirl Volume Exact mascara in very black
For cheeks :
  • NARS Powder Blush in Gilda
  • MAC Mineralize Blush in Dainty
  • MAC Bronze Powder in Solar Riche
For lips :
  • NYX Round Lipstick in Tea Rose
  • Guardian Lip Balm (not in the picture)
Tools :
  • Shu Uemura eyelash curler
  • Eco Tools Baby Kabuki
  • Eco Tools Face brush (both in the pouch)
  • Crown Brush Skunk brush
  • MAC 168 brush
  • Signature Minerals blush brush
If u wonder why I didn't bring eyeshadow with me, it's because I don't own any single of it. Personally, I don't like eyeshadow and I think it's more suitable for party or working.
Well, that's a bit update from me.
It's time for me to find a job.
Pray for me pls ;)

MIA

Hi there, I decided to delete my previus post as I prefer to tell u the details. Bcoz I still have unfinish-bussines, so I think it's necessary to tell u.
First, I came back to M'sia to cancel my student visa. I finished my study and I am graduated ! Too bad the result is not that good, I was very lazy. When I said cancel my visa, it's not enough to tell the student service that sentence. I had to ask for approval and attendace letter from my lecturer and other procedures.
Second, to get my certificate. Yeah I need it to find a job.
Third, move and clean all my stuffs from my house in M'sia. Tiring -.-'
I sold my electronic stuff and in the other day, I went to recycle company.
I need times to do those tasks, so I hope anyone who dealt with me will understand.
After that I stayed at hotel without I expected. None of my housemates informed me that someone has taking my room :(
So yeah, that's what happen. Sorry for being MIA. I dont have internet connection at the hotel. I need to pay and I think it's not worth it.
I only have 45 minutes until I go back to Indonesia.
After that, I will post anything that I got in M'sia. All the hauls =)
Pray for me to have a safe journey =p
Hope I can come back to M'sia soon =)

Makeup from Turkey, everyone ?

Today I went to Putrajaya to sell my magazines to recycle company. Instead of an office or building, is just a truck with 3 people there. They look bored.

So I gave them job with help me moving all those boxes filled with magazines from taxy. And u know what, all my magazines weighed for 100 kg ! That's damn heavy. Yeah, I love to read. I can buy around 5 pcs magazine per month. They paid me so low, but it's ok as I dont want to keep it. And I help to save the earth ! :D
Then I went to Alamanda, visiting Parkson and I saw a brand called Farmasi.

I looked down on this brand. But my friend wanted to have a look. So we checked if any interesting stuff. I saw the marble blusher and to my surprise, it's very pigmented and smooth. The color is so pretty. I like it.
But I hate it in the same time for some reasons :

- Im not familiar and never heard about how good the makeup is. Im afraid it will harm my skin.

- the name. I feel like put drugs on my face instead of makeup.

- the packaging. Seriously ugly. Just same like Inuovi. O, please put some effort to ur packaging.
People do judge by its cover.

But seriously, I feel like want to have it.
This makeup made in Turkey. I never heard makeup from Turkey. I think US, UK, Japan and Korea should be the best for makeup line.
How about Thailand, Hong Kong, Australia, etc ? I would like to know ur local brand and how the quality is. Really appreciate if someone give me more acknowledge =)
Have a nice weekend everybody.

Woo hoo my first makeup from Shu xD

Ayaya, I am so happy ! I just came back from One Utama and of course, as a shopaholic and makeup lover, I bought something ! This is the first time I purchase makeup from Shu Uemura. I have the eyelash curler and cleansing oil though, but not the makeup. I didn't plan this at all. As I only wanted to company my friend. She bought a bronzer, while me bought 2 items from there. Woo hoo ! Yee pee ! My friend gave me her voucher RM 10 rebate to me, so I got it cheaper :D
What I got ? A secret, LOL. Bcoz I could not take a picture, I decided to keep it as a secret.
Once I go back to Indonesia, I will reveal everything to u ^^ dont even try to guess, I wont answer xD
I fall in love with his new train case, but the price is so expensive RM 1k >.< maybe one day I will get it or maybe just find the cheaper one. I have 3 makeup cases now, only 1 of them is a train case, not so big. But I kinda like it :)
Btw, have u ever purchase makeup from Shu Uemura ? How do u find it ? Share with me :D
O, ya sad story, a flagship of Shu Uemura in Jakarta had been closed ! So sad !




Have a nice weekend

p/s : someone told me that Shu Uemura in Jakarta, Senayan not been closed. Phew...Maybe that time I went to wrong place

MAC haul =)

Finally, after been so curious with Colour Craft collection, I managed to see and swatch by myself. I went to Mid Valley to get my Mineralize Blush, Fad Dabulous and Style Demon. I really love it =) They both look pretty when I swatch on my hand and I hope it will look nice on my cheek.
Improvise and Daft Pink are really pretty when u see from the pan, but when u swatch, euww it's more to highlighter than a blusher for me. Definetly I prefer the permanent mineralize blush, such as Gentle and Dainty.
While for MSF, I love Triple Fusion and Sunny by Nature, but I didn't get it as I have to save my money to buy things for parents. Sunny by Nature is really nice to use for shading. Used to MSF Smooth Merge is in my wish list, but not anymore, I think it's just like any other pink with shimmer. However, I didn't get back home in empty hand, I bought 2 powder blushes =) Both of them were not in my wishlist, but I was interested with them. I was too eager to get myself Pinch Me and Springsheen. Too bad Pinch Me is OOS.
I also swatched some of the powder blush that I am interested too, Pink Swoon, Dollymix, Dame, Well Dressed and Coygirl. Blah, I hate Pink Swoon and Coygirl. Boring. But I do love Mocha =) I would definitely get this one once I make my own money.
So finally, I add some of my blusher and MAC collection.
Im happy :) A big thanks to Amy :)
How about u ? Anything that makes u happy ? Maybe u just got something that u want for a long time and it's on sale ? Share with me.

An Awesome Trick Of Contouring

Hello there, have lack of updates as I am bit lazy :p I am glad that Im in Malaysia now.
I arrived 2 days ago and guess what ? one package was waiting for me to open ! It's been a month and a half I didnt receive package nor shopping. Probably this week I will receive lots of my stuffs including MAC Colour Craft Mineralize Blush from previous post.

And I still have another blushers and bronzers to get :) I will take the picture and post all my hauls once I go back to Indonesia asI dont have camera with me now.
Ok, that's enough about me.

My post here is to share with u a nice trick that I have tried by myself last nite and it did work ! Since I got bronzer, I tried to contour my face to look slimmer and sharper, however the result was not much change. But, I like how I look with bronzer, I look fresher and not that flat and boring :)
So last nite, I was browsing to Korea famous forum which called Soompi and I got this nice trick. Instead of using bronzer or darker foundation or powder, she use black gel or cream eyeliner !
I will show u the difference and for sure, u will amaze !






See, so damn nice right ?
The secret is blend it well, so it doesnt look like beard, lol.
U can use dark brown color too, as black may too extreme, esp for fair skintone.
Here's the link http://www.soompi.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=303258



Happy trying =)

Criticism ? how do u face it ?

Hello there *waves*
I have question here which I want to share and discuss with u all.
This is about being beauty blogger, not about me actually as Im a makeup lover and collector. I still dont have that skill yet to compare with mostly beauty blogger. That's why I dont do EOTD or FOTD and since tons of beauty blogger do it, u dont need mine. So here what I want to discuss.
U are so good with makeup and u can change ur look perfectly. From plain boring to Ohmph.
People will give u compliment, u are pretty, awesome, gorgeous, etc. But how if from 100 compliments, u got 1 critic that contra with others ? Maybe it doesnt make u down, but will u accept the critic ? What I meant with critic is for example, people said ur skin look glowy, but I said ur skin looks dirty and the color doesnt suit ur eyes makeup, how do u react ?
I wont say that O u are so ugly and make me want to throw up. Nah. It's not critic. Me either do not wish that anyone will say so rude to me. But do u think I will be rude if I say the color doesnt match ? if ur skin look dirty ?
I am honest person, I will give compliment bcoz I want to and seems like it's not easy for me to give compliment. And the think is, it's not easy for people to accept critics and honesty.
I know u will hate me or think that Im bad for saying this, but once I read a blog and the bloggger isn't pretty. Personally she looks scary with her lips for me. I was wondering why people said that she's pretty. But I didnt give such comment. Not necessary to talk about people feature. When I critic someone, it should be about the makeup, right ?
I just think that when u give compliment to other blogger, is it ur honest opinion ? How if u find it doesnt look that nice ? Will u tell the truth ? Or just keep it for urself bcoz U are afraid the blogger or reader will hate u ?
U know how good the quality of ur makeup stuffs from the texture, color and bla..bla..But do u know what is the quality of nice pretty look if it's very easy for u to give compliment ? It's a question, not to sabotage or what so ever. Maybe Im kinda perfectionist, but when people do FOTD I will look so details. I like to learn from them.
That's all from me.

MAC Color Craft haul

Thanks to Amy for helping me to get MAC Colour Craft collection =) She's really helpful, as MAC Indonesia maybe dont have this later. They even dont have Style Warrior, so damn bad right ?
If I didn't get it now, Im afraid it will out of stock soon. People crazy about MAC.
Im still in Indonesia, but Amy had been so nice to buy for me plus discount bcoz she is the member of MAC Pro.
Here's the picture I got from her :)



I got Fad Dabulous and Style Demon. I think they are the prettiest among all the blushers frm Colour Craft. Daft Pink and Hand Finish are too sheer I think with tons of shimmer, just like Moon River. They are more suitable for highlighting.
I havent got the MSF Smooth Merge, Im not sure if I want to get it. I prefer to get other MAC blusher hehe..
I cant wait to get these MAC blushers on my hand !
Btw should I try other blushers from Colour Craft ?
What is ur favourite blusher from MAC ?
Give me suggestion ya. Thanks =)

MAC Colour Craft


Im here not to post about the swatches or the collection. As for the collection, u can just google it. So glad to know a collection which have lots of blushers. When I saw the picture for the first time, I was planning to get all the mineralize blush, but after the swatches from beauty bloggers, I am not that interested anymore. It's very shimmery and the color doesnt come out. So finallyI choose to only get these :

  • Fad Dabulous
  • Style and Demon
  • MSF Smooth Merge
Too bad the price for the blusher is kinda pricey, Rm 95. And lucky that I dont want to get them all, so I can use my money for other stuffs. I have many things to buy.

  • blusher
  • bronzer
  • angled brush
  • foundation brush
I want to try from any brands, that's what we call collection =p If there anyone here, have it, u can offer me or maybe if kind enough, give to me as charity :D This is my email la_femmefatale@rocketmail.com.
I believe lots of u really excited with this new MAC Collection, share with me which stuffs that u are planning to get or ur favourite from Colour Craft =)

Blushers Collection

Yay, finally I can show my blusher collection to all of u. I borrowed my sister's camera and I think it's much better than all the pics that I posted here before.
Btw, I know my collection is still by far from all makeup lover out there who probably have 50 pcs or more. But, I bought things that I love and I want to share with u all. I am happy with what I got. And for sure, I will add my collection soon. Not now though, I am on shopping diet hehe..
So, here it is














Yups, that's all what I got. Not many right ? I have 26 blushers from various brands.

  • 8 pcs blushers from MAC
  • 3 pcs from NARS
  • 2 pcs from Ulta
  • 2 pcs from Etude
  • 2 pcs from Revlon
  • 2 pcs from NYX
  • 4 pcs from L'oreal
  • 1 pc from Boots
  • 1 pc from Niche
  • 1 from Maybelline
Btw, the one that is from Niche, is made by Japan. At least, that's all I know from the packaging. The color is so pigmented yet pretty. When I want to use this, I need a light hand or else, I will end up look like a clown. It's very cheap; Rp 60,000 or RM 20. I'm planning to get other color =)
So, how about urs ? How many blushers u have ? Do share with me. I would like to know and pls recommend me a very great blush the brand together with the color.
Thanks ^^

Nothing more than $20

This post was inspired and dedicated to one of my reader, addy. And I hope it will be useful for others who wants to get things from Sephora, but u are in tight budget.
For us, who don't have Sephora in our place, it will be more worthy if u find something that u cant get anywhere else. Or maybe something that u cant get in ur country, like Malaysia. We don't have NARS, DuWop, Sephora, etc. and it's kinda sad when lots of people rave about it, but we have no idea how it looks like or why people love it.
As this is for tight budget or anyone who prefer to spend the money $50 for lots of items than only one item from high end brand.
I will limit the budget to maximum $20, which means around RM 75. And honestly, I haven't tried it yet, it's not my personal view, I didn't own it. It's based on the rate and all the research that I got. U can click on the name to check it.
Cheeks (Blush/Bronzer) :
* Bare Escentuals Bare Minerals All Over face Color $18-20
Bare Escentuals is so famous in US, most of the products are makeup lover favorite. Me,
myself love the primer. Why I chose this one ?
It is natural, so 99% it's safe for ur skin.
U can get the colors depend on what u need, blusher or bronzer or luminizer.
* Sephora Harmony Trio Bronzer $16
it looks like Shimmer Brick from Bobbi Brown, but they only have 3 color stripes( That's why
they called as trio, duh.) The shades that they offer are only 3, Apricot, Bronze and Rose. U can
use it on ur eyes or cheeks.
* Sephora Blush Me! Mono $12
If I see this in front of me now, for sure I want to grab them all. The colors are so pretty ! If I
cant get NARS, I will get this one. I can get 2 pcs of this instead one NARS blsuher.
Eyeliner :
* Nano Eyeliner from Sephora $5
I chose this not only bcoz it's cheap, but they have lots of color selection. Mostly from the
review it said that goes on smoothly. It was considered as brand new item, but ady have 417
reviews and 3.9 out of 5.
*Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes Eyeliner $17
For me personally, MUFE has very good quality for most of products that they have. I think I
don't need to say a lot about MUFE. They are highly raved in Sephora and Makeupalley. They,
too have lots of color selections.
Eyeshadow :
* DuWop Duet Eyeshadow $17
U can find easily eyeshadows that are less than $20, but mostly they are OOS -.-' If u are
curious, it's from Vincent Longo and Pop Beauty. They are on sale. Maybe bcoz the price was so
expensive, but no one wanted to get it.
This DuWop Duet Eyeshadow is limited edition. Even though only has 8 reviews, they love it. Foundation :
* Sephora Hydrating & Smoothing Foundation $20
Lots of color selection. A foundation that suits normal and dry skin. Gives u satin finish and light
in texture.
Loose Powder :

* Bare Escentuals Mineral Veil $19
It's like NARS for blusher, highly raved. It is natural product that suitable for all skin type. I do
own this, it goes on smoothly andf yes, they do a great job to control oil.

Well, this is all I got. I think it's kinda difficult to get something that is very cheap as Sephora mostly sell high end brand stuffs. If they are on sale, it's very fast to OOS.
However, I hope it helps. Sorry, if I only recommend several brands. If u want to get drugstore and high end items, u can check ULTA (for u in US). Check the location http://stores.ulta.com/store/ They have Cover Girl, Max Factor, Too Faced, Urban Decay. Yeah, it's a heaven. Enjoy ur shopping time ;)

O,ya it will be great if u can recommend shopping place for makeup from all over the country that u know. Thanks ;)

Bare Escentuals Prime Time Foundation primer review

When ULTA was on sale for 15% discount, I felt like I don't want to miss it. So I was wondering what I wanted to get. That time I was crazy about primer, so I decided to get a primer, but I was not sure from which brand I should get. I did research, which brand is famous for great primer.
Then I got this, from Sephora it rates 4.5 out of 5 from 1,046 reviews, can u imagine how popular that is ?
Here's the description :

What it is:
Prepare your skin for the most amazing foundation with this preservative-free foundation primer that's great for all skin types.

What it is formulated to do:
Developed to combat flaky dryness, rough patches, fine lines, excess oil, enlarged pores, and uneven texture, this mineral-infused, satin-finish formula glides on seamlessly with no tacky feel to provide a skin-smoothing complexion prior to bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation application. Infused with soothing plant extracts, antioxidants, and nourishing vitamins C and E for added age-defying power.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Parabens
- Sulfates
- Synthetic Fragrances
- Synthetic Dyes
- Petro-Chemicals
- Phthalates

No doubt, I decided to get this one. And honestly, I love it, I love the result, texture and everything of it !
The texture was so light and very fast to absorb. It has no color, just transparent.
My skin feels so smooth when I put this on my face. It did great job to make my makeup long lasting and smooth.
It helps my nose to not look so oily bcoz I have combination skin.
Overall, it's perfect for me ;)
So, who about u ? What is ur favourite foundation primer ? share with me ;)


Have a nice weekend

My Projects

Start tomorrow, 30 June 2009 I will have projects for my own.
First will be a project where I need to save my money for 3 weeks until I come back to Malaysia. Means, no haul for a month if I count since last week. Sigh..It's kinda hard, but I have to survive >.< I will not shop any clothes or makeup. Instead, I will use all the makeup that I have now. Some of them haven't been used by me yet.
The second project will be lose weight project. I gained 9 kgs in a year -.-' My goal will be 50 kgs.
What I will do :

  • Drink more mineral water

First time I tried bronzer was when Stephen taught me how to use it. Since that, I am in love with bronzer ^^ So far I only have 2 pcs from MAC Style Warrior, Solar Riche and Refined Golden. I am planning to get more. As u can see from the picture, all the bronzers look so pretty and how tempted. I wish to get all. But, I can't find here (Indonesia) T.T Makeup products here are so damn boring and sucks. Almost a week I'm here, but I didn't get anything for me. My makup stuffs still remain the same. Booo. A hell no for makeup lover not to shop even only for a week, LOL.

Btw, what is ur favourite bronzer that u have ? Do share with me ;)

I'm Home ! Yee pee !

Hi everybody ! Sorry these 3 days no updates from me. I was in Genting on Tuesday and Wednesday. And here's I am, at home, Indonesia !
I was stuck in the car for 2,5 hours bcoz traffic jam ! Sigh..Indonesia is famous for that.
When I just reached home, I met mom and after that we had long chat. I am happy. Usually I am afraid to talk with her. She's a bit changed this year, that's why we are getting further. Well, I hope our relationship is getting better.
Oh well, lets talk about makeup. I haven't go to any shopping mall yet, but I check from the magazine. The currency that I used is RM 1 = Rp 3,000.
Some of them come cheaper here, here's a price list :
YSL Touche Eclat = RM 100
MUFE HD Foundation = RM 125
MUFE HD Primer = RM 105
Anna Sui Pressed Powder = RM 122
MAC Strobe Cream = RM 143
Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler = RM 62.67
Etude House Peach Cheek Blusher = RM 72.67
PAC Eye Shadow Powder = RM 19.17

MAC, Shu Uemura and Etude House I think it's more expensive in Indonesia. So I will indulge myself with other brand that might be cheaper here. I want to get Lunasol, MUFE, Paul and Joe and PAC. My sister and my bf are busy, they can't company me =(
I can't wait to shop ! My bf said that he wanted to buy me present for my birthday gift. Of course Im gonna use it for makeup :D
What's ur shopping list ? Share with me =)

I am so tired, stress mode is on

As u know, I sell some of my stuffs and there's a girl who urgently needed to get moisturizer that I had. She asked for discount, then I gave her RM 5 cheaper. Then we had our deal. I sent it to her and she received 2 days ago.
But she complained, as the size is only 7ml. While that time she asked me, I said 15 ml. I said so because that's what I seen from the note at the bottom of the jar.
She said no, it's 7 ml. I said sorry, it was my mistaken.
She said that this problem can't be solved with a sorry.
I was like..? To be honest, for me it's a simple problem and if someone did it to me I will just forgive her. I didn't try to cheat at all. But she made the problem become so complicated.
She asked for refund and will send it back to me.
I said can't refund as once good sold, no refund or cancellation.
And other thing is, as I know she really need it. That's why I sent it immediately after she did the payment. How can u ask for refund if u really need it ?
Maybe she ady got the original size from her sister. She asked her sister to buy for her in Hong Kong.
So finally she said to search what the price for 7ml in market was. I said why don't just give u discount for next purchase. She rejected.
I felt so pissed off. Ya, it was my mistaken. I said sorry and tried to solve this problem in my way. But she kept asking for refund. OMG. Damn fucking annoying bitch. What's wrong with u ?
I wish I won't face this kind of people again. People can be so stingy and calculative even only for RM 5. So finally I did the refund n I hope she won't find me again. I was so stress for lots of problem and busy as I need to pack all my stuffs. But then I had to face a silly problem like this.
It was a bad luck.
Sigh...I want to go back to Indonesia to refresh my mind asap.
I was(am) so stress and did lots of stupid things that were not good. Sometime u just feel like want to hurt urself. And last nite I told my bf. He said that I was stupid, but in the same time he was sad. I hurt someone that love me so much, it's more pain compare to all stupid things that I did. I just didn't know how to appreciate my life >.<
I should say sorry to myself and people who care a lot about me.
Sigh...don't u think sometime when u are emo or stress, u can be so pathetic or dramatic ? Well at least for me =p

Love ur local cosmetic brand

Makeup brands that are famous usually is from US, Europe ( French, Italy), Japan and Korea.
MAC, Bobbi Brown, Chanel, Lunasol, who doesn't know that brand ?
But how about brand from Malaysia or Indonesia ? Mostly people, especially from their own country doesnt know either care. Rather than spend the money for local brand, they prefer famous brand that assure u good quality and worthy to spend. That's what we call playing safe.
But for me, who collect makeup and like to try something different, I would like to try local makeup brand from Indonesia.
Why not ? I gave myself a chance to try MAC, indeed I love MAC so much. So now, I want to be more adventurous with makeup ;) A brand that I want to try is PAC. Na ah, it's not fake MAC. PAC stands for Professional Artist Cosmetic. First launched was in 1997 and the owner is Martha Tilaar. This cosmetic suits for u who are looking for stage makeup, bridal with a very fine quality, water resistant with lots of color selections.
Me personally interested to get these :

Blush palette and based on the picture, the colors look so pretty :D

Professional Makeup Kit. I know I am far from professional, but it doesnt mean I cant have this makeup kit, right ? :D This set contains :
- 6 Creamy Foundations
- 4 Liquid Foundations
- 6 Two Way Cakes
- 2 Loose Powders
- 2 Shimmering Powders
- 4 Blush On
- 24 Pressed Eye Shadows
- 12 Lipsticks
Aiyaya, so tempted ! Btw, I have tried the eyeshadow, which owned by my friend. It's very pigmented and the colors are pretty. The package is Lancome look alike, but I think the price is more afforadble. Not sure yet, since I never go to the counter. But now, yes I want to try.
Next week I'm going back to Indonesia, yay ! Cant wait to shop with my bf :D
Btw, if someone wants to get PAC, can email me as I will come back to Malaysia in July =)

MAC Mineralize Blush in Gleeful


picture credits to viewpoints.com

Since the first time I saw this blush from Specktra.net, I was falling in love. I should have this.
And finally, I have it. The color is dusty rose, which I think u can find other than from MAC.
I was dissapointed with the result that I got when I put on my face. It looked like a dirt on my face. It didn't make look me fresh.
What I like from MAC Mineralize Blush is the texture and pigmentation. I didn't have to put so much to see the colour appear on my face. I dislike blusher that is very sheer. It's no use I buy it as have no result that I can see nor make any differences on my face.
I really like Dainty and Gentle that Stephen recommended to me. Especially Dainty, I love it. I look so fresh and the color matches with my skin :D
This Gleeful end up in my sale spree. I wish to sell, so anyone who interested, can email me la_femmefatale@rocketmail.com and of course the price will be much cheaper than retail.

I want these


Giorgio Armani Lasting Silk UV Foundation. It lauched around April 2009 in US if not mistaken. Maybe will come to Malaysia a bit late or we won't see it in here. It gives more coverage than Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk and it contains SPF 20.


Paul and Joe Protecting FLuid Foundation. It's mostly beauty bloggers favourite and I want it too >.<>


Lunasol Modelling Water Liquid Foundation. Actually I want to try the cream foundation, but I hate the packaging. But well, all cream foundation come in that packaging. So I prefer to get this one, which more hygienic. Do u think that they will perform in a same way ? As I know cream foundation has better coverage.



Kanebo Sensai Fluid Finish Foundation. I can't find it in Malaysia, but probably will launch sooner or later. The packaging is plain boring, but I heard lots of good things about this foundation. I am a sucker for foundation, so I should try any foundation that mostly beauty blogger think is good.


Honestly, I want to get all liquid foundations from high end brand. U name it, I want it. Guerlain, Shiseido, Lancome, Make Up For Ever, Estee Lauder, all in my wish list, lol. Foundation, primer or makeup base and blusher have been my favourites. It's a must for me to get of them whenever I go to shop.

I love makeup base since I tried Laneige Makeup Prime Sebum Control and so far I have around 8 bottles of primer/makeup base. Mostly are so-so, only certain products that give me smooth canvas feeling :D
For primer it doesn't have to come from high end brand, as I have from Etude House and The Faceshop.


Now I need to save my money, a lot. For new MAC collection, Colour Craft and the foundations that in my wish list. Paul and Joe Protecting Fluid foundation is much cheaper in Indonesia, but harder to get compare to Malaysia. I only can find in one place to get this foundation, but I think it's worthy to put a little bit more effort to get this foundation or else, I will get the Lunasol Modelling Water Liquid Foundation ;)


What's ur favourite foundation ? Share with me and maybe I will tempted to get it :D

Happy loving foundation day ! ( what kind of day is that ? LOL)
