Sexy Look Hello Kitty Masks + My Beauty Diary 15 Sampler Pack

Both masks were gifts from Jenny.

SexyLook Hello KKitty Ultra Moisturizing Pink Sakura Double Lifting Mask (pink)

SexyLook Hello Kitty Brightening Firming White Rose Double Lifting Mask (White)

Don't forget to wash and cleanse the face before applying the mask. Leave on for about 20-30 minutes. SexyLook Hello Kitty masks are loaded with essence. I applied the extra essence for my face and neck. 

1.Soothing and cooling effect- very relaxing!
2. Brightening effect.  
3. Did not break me out.
4. Smells great.
5. Affordable.

1. Not locally available.

I really like the Hello Kitty masks, although I can't say much on the claim of lifting it does brighten the skin for a few hours after use. Perhaps regular use would reap better results but I have only had 2 masks. -_-

So, I planned to get Sexy Look Hello Kitty Masks as well as My Beauty Diary's Earl Grey Macaron masks, but I'm so impatient at waiting for pre-order so I ordered these instead. :P I bought this from wehaveit143, a seller who I know is patient and trust worthy. :)

Majolica Majorca Jeweling Pencil in 71 (Short Review + Tip + FOTD)

I have been looking for another eyeliner to use for my waterline. As much as I love lining it with a white eyeliner, I often find that white is a bit too strong and just looks very unnatural in some pictures. 

It is a champagne Gold. I have yet to find a Peach eyeliner. :)

As you can see from the swatch above, this particular eyeliner contains glitters. If you have sensitive eyes, I suggest you stay away and find another eyeliner because this might irritate your eyes. I on the other hand would have to say that I really like this eyeliner. :3
The lasting power amazed me and the color makes my eyes pop out without being too obvious. I would have to say though that this feels a bit scratchy, it does not go on as smoothly as some of my eyeliners do. I suspect that the glitters may be the culprit but I still love it! It's available at all Majolica Majorca counters and it's also very affordable. 

TIP: Use a Peach, Champagne or Gold eyeliner instead of White to make your eyes more alive without being too obvious.

Trying out Geo Princess Mimi Green lenses. :)
Kose Sekkisei Supreme Makeup Base

Daiso False Eyelashes
Majolica Majorca Jeweling Pencil in 71 

Lunasol FUll Glamour Lips G in 33

Picture taken with iPhone 4. I think the flash washes out the color of the blush and I applied it heavily so everyone can see the lovely pink color it gives. I will be doing a separate review with swatches of Dandelion.
As I have previously stated - I tend to act goofy in real life although people don't suspect I do. :P

I have always wanted to have my picture taken with the pose below. A headshot with a mesmerized stare.. :P Please excuse the vanity. LOL! x)

I used Photoscape to edit the photo. In the first photo, I just reduced the noise since the picture was taken with an iPhone. I then played with the lighting in the 2nd and 3rd photo. Which among the three do you like? :)

Have a great weekend everyone! ^___^ 

Caudalie Paris Lip Conditioner - Skincare diary

This 99.5 percent-natural treatment provides a powerful blend of antioxidants and nutrients that protect, hydrate, repair, and soothe dry lips while lending antiaging benefits. It makes an excellent lipstick base. (source)

formulated WITHOUT:
- Parabens
- Sulfates
- Synthetic Dyes
- Petrochemicals
- Phthalates
- GMOs
- Triclosan

This is one of those products that I had high hopes for especially since I read many good reviews on it. 

The product is clear and can be used under lipstick or lipgloss. It is smooth and goes on easily on the lips. It also smells pleasant and the taste does not bother me at all. 

- Non sticky.
- Does not feel heavy on the lips.
- Gives a soothing sensation when applied.
- Smells wonderful.
- Does not contain chemicals and is made with products that are environmentally friendly.

- Tad expensive for a lip balm/conditioner.
- Not locally available.
- Does not last on my lips.
- Does nothing for my dry lips.

REPURCHASE? No. The only reason I buy lip balms and conditioners is because I don't want my lips to be dry and this clearly does nothing for me.

I dream of...

A getaway... on a secluded and beautiful island. (I have to qualify, I mean secluded but not far away from the comforts of city life. Hahaha!)

Picture perfect!
I have never seen a picture of this place that was not picturesque. It seems that every angle is breathtaking, captivating and well, just beautiful.

My cousin told me that the whole island was modeled after Santorini, Greece. According to him the island is man made and I went, "WOW!" O.o. He also told me that they have excellent customer service and would do pretty much anything their guest asks them to. They also have tours, activities and a spa for guests. 

Bellarocca Island Resort and Spa

Ahhhhh, tranquility... :)

"Luxurious privacy.   A uniquely exclusive resort.  In a breathtakingly new destination."

FREE 3days and 2nights stay with roundtrip airfare for 2 persons.
In breathtaking Bellarocca. Yours by simply sharing the luxury lifestyle.

Well, you all now know what to do! Share this amazing deal with everyone, on every social network you are on for a chance to win this amazing deal! :D

Lunasol Full Glamour Lips G in 33 - Pink Beige

Someone seems to be on a lipstick phase right now... -_-

FULL GLAMOUR LIPS G  (17 colors) Lip color that blends on with a melting sensation the moment it touches the lips.Pure coloration and a succulent glow create moist, plump lips. Contains beauty essence ingredients.

Lunasol's signature classy packaging for the win. :3


indoor lighting.

with flash.

Pink Beige is a nude lip color that adds just a hint of Pink and Beige on the lips. The color of the actual product is very true to the name it was given. The texture is very creamy and glides effortlessly. It is a bit sheer but the color is buildable hence the color will show up after applying on about 3 layers. It does not accentuate lip lines and keeps the lips moisturized and supple! The staying power actually surprised me because it does stay on even after I eat and drink. I AM IN LOVE WITH THIS LIPSTICK and shall get more colors. :3

Downside - Not budget friendly. Also those living outside Asia may find it hard to get Lunasol products but if you can get your hands on this, I do recommend that you try it.

Swap with MisoJenny

Everyone in the blogging world seems to indulge in swaps every once in a while. I have also a swap buddy from the USA. :) I consider her to be more than a swap buddy because we do chat about other things other than makeup. E.g: Her dog's name is Bobo, her bf is allergic to nuts, she usually visits her parents on the wekeends, etc.. Jenny's super sweet and fun to talk to.

She told me she wouldn't go over 1kg this time around as shipping is crazy expensive. It's a good thing she sent her package before I did because I had to go and get her more stuff because I absolutely felt guilty when I saw how much she sent me. Hence, I was late in sending her the package and I went over 2kgs LOL! xD 

YAY Urban Decay goodies - Urban Decay Eyeshadow Transforming Potion, Ink for the Eyes and Lipstick in Sellout.

She knows I love Kiehl's so she sent me - Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate, Lip Balm No. 1, Imperial Body Balm, Ultra Facial Cream and Cryste Marine - Lifting and Firming Cream.

Jenny loves Lancome and decided to share the love with me.
Coach perfume roller ball, Lancome single eyeshadow and Radiant Smoothing Eye Shadow Duo in Velvet Corail.

Korres Guava Lip Butter, Physicians Formula Liquid Eyeliner, Physicians Formula  Happy Booster Blush in Natural and Rocket City Lip Gloss.

Alpha Hydrox Anti-Wrinkle Cream and Shisheido Aqua Label Moisturizer
More skincare items to try! :)

Real Techniques Brush Set

Caudalie samples and a couple of Sexy Look - Hello Kitty masks. I have used the masks and I loved them so I placed an order for more online. =)

I hope Jenny likes everything I sent her as much as I liked all these wonderful things she sent me. I WUBBB YEWWW JENNY!!! <3 She's always so kind, thoughtful and generous. :3

Jenny is everywhere! LOL! Please follow and watch her if you haven't. :)
