TheFaceShop & OPI

Mini haul from TheFaceShop to stock up on my favourite BB cream the Aqua tinted BB cream and got side tracked and bought some other stuffs to try. Ended up with the facial jelly wash sponge, blemish patch, a new bb cream for blemish skin but no SPF and they gave me a sample mask pack for free 😉 I probably should write a review about the various bb creams I’ve tried..

Also bought another hand cream (smack me please,I still have a whole stash of various hand creams unused) from OPI which comes with the free cuticle oil..wondering how helpful it’ll be for my dry cuticles

Final had time for my pedicure, went for a royal purple+gold glitter from OPI

Mini Benefit haul

Today the postman dropped of a package I’ve been eagerly waiting for-me and suyi’s Benefit Cosmetics parcel that we ordered directly from the website.it arrived in just over 2weeks,pretty good time I would say for free shipping 🙂

I have been living without my favorite blusher for too long just because I was being skint refusing to buy it from the counters here(wait till you hear the price difference-it’s astonishing to say the least) and wasn’t willing to fork out shipping for just one item. So I was pretty excited when I finally found someone to haul with 😉

Here’s the pic of all the items we ordered.might do an individual review if I’m up to it

ate too much, bought too much

it is with friends like this that you know you meet once in a while, and yet the conversation flow like it was just yesterday that you met. Cheryl came from penang to stay over the weekend.Cheryl is my very good friend from uni, we were classmates for 3 amazing years..and i stay 2 floors above her in the hostel. our favourite past time was shopping and cooking and ogling at beautiful things online..and then trying to find devious ways to get it shipped to ukraine 😉 i would come back from class, pop by the kiosk on the ground floor and buy a pack of yogurt i know i cant finish..so i’ll bring it down to her room in various ways to tempt her help me finish it. funny that years later..i would remember this. and the times we had our ‘instant’ steamboat by just throwing in everything we originally intended to cook for dinner into a big pot of steaming chicken stock -__- guess i was more creative then huh.

Suyi came along with us to IKEA and we had alot of fun deciding what to eat, only to realise later that we shouldn’t have bothered..cause we ended getting almost everything.i made sure we took the chicken wings.. cause i love it so! spent almost the entire day there browsing and lemming things that we can survive without, but would love to have. cheryl managed to buy the storage kits she needed, tempting suyi along with her. it was hilarious when i saw our trolley filled to the brim with all sorts of things. there’s one more pic of me holding something really long…

this is me holding Cheryl’s walking wardrobe *hehe*

ps : it’s a really good deal at just rm99!erm you have to kinda fix it yourself,kindly refer to IKEA catalog for more details =P

 

L’occitane Christmas haul

im really loving the chrismas gift sets from L’occitane this year.the packaging theme is fuchsia and green, very bright and contrasting.even the giftset leaflet is so pretty.i got my items from Sunway Pyramid. the SA who served me was really nice and friendly, she even threw in extra paper bags and gift bags of various sizes for me to repack as gifts for my friends.

the big paperbag of my stuffs

the winter rose (rose des neiges)  set

wrapped in fuschia papers

clockwise fr L-R : shimmering shower gel, sugar scrub(the wooden spoon is so cute!) and body creme. all from the xmas limited edition winter rose collection

my favorite handcream is from l’occitane tho i have not started using the winter rose(pink) or the fleur cherie(orange) ones..i assume it will be as good as the others that i’ve used.

bought the shaving foam and shower gel fr the Men’s range for MrF and it really smells so yummy.cant wait to smell him with it.haha, couldn’t get him the fragrance because there’s this superstition btw us (long story) that forbids me to buy him perfumes. forgot to take a pic of it before giving him.

went to a few malls around here recently and this year the xmas decorations are really fancy. i took some pics of the l’occitane displays.

oops just realized it’s not the l’occitane display,it’s Borders the bookstore.but u get the gist, it’s pretty similiar.

this is the l’occitane set up at The Gardens, i love that it’s so floral and xmas-y at the same time

next,

Pavillion KL, main concourse. compared to Kiehl’s counter, L’occitane put in much more effort! see im bias because the predominant color was fuchsia 😉

a closer look..

there’s also gift with purchase(GWP) in store now, for non xmas set items above rm500 you get a calendar and a set of miniature shampoo/body lotion/handcream 10 ml + a tote bag. if you buy the xmas sets then the bar goes up to rm600 for the GWP.

im happy with my haul 😀 (tho my pocket is not)

 

 

Too Faced Enchanted Glamourland photos

one of the biggest highlight of my trip to spain was the visit to Sephora store.i begged mom for a few precious minutes to spend at the store, because we were having our free day shopping at La Rambla at Barcelona, and mom was in a frenzy trying to cover as many shops as possible..and makeup wasn’t in her list of priority. SO anyway i went into the Sephora store and it was HUGE.entered the store on the 2nd floor, and when i went down the escalator my heart stopped beating for a split second. i was in the mecca of cosmetics. giddy with excitement the first counters i went to were Urban decay and Too Faced , because we don’t have them in Malaysia. was deciding between the Urban Decay book of shadows vol III or the Too Faced Enchanted Glamourland palette, i guess u know by now which one came home with me 😉

i have not started using it yet, as the whole palette is too pretty ❤

love the illustration of the fairy

once opened, there’s a pop up at the centre with even more fairies,a pocket with 3 cards for tutorial, and on the right side the blusher and face powder

a closer look at the left side

the right side with the blusher and face color

this is the pull out drawer compartment consisting of the eyeshadows, full sized lipgloss and shadow insurance ( their shadow primer)

these tutorial cards are also included in the set, arent they so cute?

im really excited to start using this set but im still holding on because it’s just too cute and pretty! so it’s just photos this time.. no reviews yet. im still very much in love with the Naked palette from Urban Decay so im using that more now.

maybe i’ll do another post after I’ve started using this 🙂

Chanel petit cambon tote

before going on the trip to Spain, i was searching around online drooling looking at things i wanted to get. So i was eying the Wilshire MM , the one in Rouge Fauviste especially..the beautiful eye catching raspberry red color. Or the Alma BB. As expected the Alma BB is sold out at the Louis Vuitton store in Barcelona but sadly even the Wilshire was only available in Gris art deco, a silvery grey colour which i didn’t like, it was too dull for me. So they didn’t have everything on our list : the Eva, Wilshire MM, Alma BB.. and nothing else caught my eye. only managed to get the Neverfull pm in Damier for Anngie. So we walked down the street..and walked past Chanel.

It was a really small shop, very few ready to wear pieces on sale, a rack of sunglasses and some handbags. i asked the friendly sales associate (SA) for Petit shopping tote (PST) and it was out of stock. I asked to see the Grande shopping tote (GST) and my mom and aunt thought it looked too big and bulky on me. then the SA brought out a very cute little thing which i fell in love with instantly. It was the petit Cambon tote. Made of lambskin..with the patents CC sewn in front..it was the perfect size. so cute, and when i took a peek inside it was a really sweet surprise for me because it’s neon pink!! fell in love (again!) and decided to buy it. after waiting a while, she came out from the storeroom and handed me a black paperbag with ribbons at the handles and a white camelia flower on it. so pretty 🙂

gonna do a reveal, because im very excited and so happy!

forgot to take a pic before i untied the ribbons

the big black box with the ribbons and another flower

are you getting excited yet =P

my new baby in lambskin so soft and supple

she neatly folded the dustbag at the side

the neon pink interior <3<3<3

it has 2 zipped pockets, 2 pen slots and the keyring holder

i bought sunglasses too 😉 will do a reveal soon

the object of my desire – LV favorit vernis bracelet

saw this online a few days ago and my heart stopped beating. well almost!cause if it did i wouldn’t be  here still lusting over it 😉 this is a rather new item from Louis vuitton, and has all my favourite elements.. it’s made in vernis leather..so shiny and sleek and the red color..oh pomme de amour is really the best color for a little accessory like this. and i really love the bow too. i wonder how big or small it is, though i do hope they didn’t make it too tiny.

this is definately no 1 on my lust list for now, overriding the Miu Miu bow satchel =P

Loving it NAKED

the next best thing to having a best friend come home from a trip to Europe when you don’t get to tag along is…when she comes home with goodies for you! and i received a lip primer too 😉

THANK YOU SO MUCH FANYIN!

i love my NAKED palette so much *excited*

 

very luxe packaging..velvety and sleek

 

i’ve tried it out, naturally (immediately after i reached home) and i love it.. the colors are all neutrals..very easy to use and match. with different finishing.. but the texture remains smooth just like all the other Urban Decay eyeshadows.

 

loving this so much

 

i’m feeling so lucky Fan managed to get one for me from UK as it is sold out in some of the other countries. and of course.. i’m still wishing that Sephora would open its doors in KL, and bring along all these other makeup brands that we don’t have right now. Pssst like, NARS, hello? do you hear me Sephora?

used it quite a few times.. i love that they gave a mini eyeshadow Primer potion so that i could try it out and decide if i want the full size one. (yes i do) the only issue i have with some of the more glittery shades is the fallout. need more practice with the application. otherwise i’m totally in love with it 🙂

have not posted about my MAC Venomous Villains haul..from a while ago. will do that soon

Crocs Mccall

something pretty to post

i love the print and the colors!

it looks even cuter with the pearl jibbit

this is the 2nd pair of croc mccall that i bought, the first pair is a peach colored one with loud floral print.. but i fell in love with the colors for this pair.. more subdued in all my favorite hues of turquoise and purple.
