Heatherette for MAC: Smooth Harmony

Ooook then. Heatherette! Made a reservation for the Beauty Powder. I wanted Alpha Girl which was a pink flushy type of colour, but somehow that one will not make it to our shores. So I stuck with Smooth Harmony - a bronzey semi-matte colour, although I was pretty sure it was going to blend right into my skintone.

Yep, sucker for packaging, right here.

Can you blame me now?! Sooo sexy! Hot pink with holographic thingies. These are printed right into the plastic, not even stickers!

The uber cool box with sketches of Heatherette's founders.
And look, mirror, hello? Perfection.

By the way, as a bronzer it pretty much disappeared but surprisingly as a blusher, AWESOME. I looked so corally glowy.

I'm still contemplating whether to get the lipsticks. I only like one colour, and that colour looks veerrry similar to the one I got from the MAC Fafi collection. Hmmhmm.

Anyway, I feel like getting me some Heatherette. *Off to*

NYX Round Lipsticks

Hello to the couple of strayers who have stumbled upon my blog through google searches of "pink elephants" and "metallic tights"!

Annnyywaaay. So I was having a bit of a problem with photoshop BUT then today I realised "heeeey why not I just take smaller resolutioned photos?" YES, double duh to the max.

I guess I'll post swatches. I've been buying an alarming amount of make-up recently. You see, I wanted to save money in not buying clothes but knowing my knack for wanting to spend, I figured that hey make-up's cheaper! and I believe it has turned into an addiction.

As promised, NYX round lipstick swatches! They kicked off my little sprees but these are the fabulousness. I got these for only USD$0.99 per tube! Prices have gone up to $2 per tube, pity.

Let's see, I ordered 7 with alternates and it came back with only four miserable tubes.

Celene: Beige with chunks of goldish shimmers.
Circe: The most perfect nude I've ever seen.
Need lipliner with this though it's so creamy.
Georgia: Very pretty pink-coral. My favourite.
Rose: Hot pink-red with subtle blue accents.

Without Flash
From Left: Celene, Circe, Georgia, Rose.

With Flash, same order.

Review: The lipsticks are verry creamy, very pigmented and so packed with colour. No funky cheap make-up smell, just a very faint apparently rose scent. Their lasting power is not bad also.
Con: Pretty packaging, but not very durable. I dropped Celene and the entire stick broke. Still usable though, just doesn't look nice.

And yesterday a package came in with my second purchases! Third one making its way! HAHA!

Princessa Lipsticks, NYX Diamond Sparkle (ridiculously overpriced in Singapore), NYX Concealer in a jar, NYX Flat Top Brush (MAC 187 dupe!).

But hey, half of these are gifts for people. NYX for colleagues, and concealer for friend.

A photo of the top half of my vanity settop, simply because it looks preeeetttyy :)

But no worries, I have averted my attention back to wonderful wonderful clothes!
The cure: TOPSHOP SALE. I was there on its first day of secret saleness (thank you topshop insider!) Close to $100 gone in one shot at Topshop, never done that before and it feeeeeels so good!

That said however... MAC Heatherette collection is FINALLY launched! Ooopsies. I was going to get their beauty powders on Friday, but they were delayed in shipping. Poo.

I'm thirsty and I'm lemming for some bubble tea. Shall run out and see if I feel like another post when I come back!

Stalest Post EVER : Gladiator Sandals.

Today I am upset because

1) I bought a lousy drugstore house brand hair straightener and IT SUCKS ASS. It's sole intention was to curl hair (I know right, but search it on youtube!) and it's cheaper than a hair curler itself hence. It's hopeless as a straightener also so I don't know what to do with it.

2) of the things I do for others which leaves me looking impatient, pesky and silly.

So to counter these I:

1) Ordered more cheap makeup online. Pictures and reviews of haul #1 soon!

2) Am ordering shoes online. Not that I think it will, but if the US dollar would depreciate further I'd be ecstatic.

So many gladiator sandals are on sale! Yaaay for it being passe and corny and yaaaay for me not to care! These are from

Hot pink, need I say more?

One tip though, sandals with straps that will go above your ankles will cut your legs, so if you have short legs, avoid them. Best to get those with a slight wedge. Or you know, a full heel, whatevs.

For some reason I call these Jesus sandals, must've seen it in some movie.

I initially thought these look trying-too-hard-ish, but upon close-up and bigger view, I actually think these might look quite hot.

These were not the ones I purchase, but I'm a true believer of things getting jinxed. You have no idea the suicidal feeling of waiting and anticipating for days only to be told that your item is OOS.

Couture! Yay! Soon-to-be-made post.


By the way, holiday status = pending. pending. PENDING. FREAKING PENDING. I kinda proclaimed that I can go by myself, sort of like a bridging into independence and *ahem* womanhood kinda thing, but I am sissy enough to say I'm not ready!

Damn! I've not showered and America's Next Top Model is on soon! Ciao!
