Five beauty picks

11 Jan

Last year few girlfriends and I decided to try out more make-up products than what we usually use. This girly experiment leads to my new-found obsession with make-up. It became so much more than just something you put on your face, but it determines the mood and the look you are after for the day. Throughout 2010, I’ve tried 5 bronzers, 8 eyeshadow palletes, 5 mascaras, 10 lipglosses, 56 nail polish (yes a bit mad!) and here are my top picks of the category.

1. Nars Bronzing Powder- Laguna

I particularly love this bronzer because of its color. Being asian, it’s very hard for me to find a bronzer that suits my skin. They usually are either too red/dark or too sheer. Laguna has enough glitter to make my skin glow under the sun and yet just the right amount of tint to make me look sun-kissed instead of sun-burnt.

2. Stila Wheel eyeshadow palette

This eyeshadow palette is AMAZING! Besides the variety of colors (you basically get every color imaginable), the eyeshadow clings to your skin so it won’t need any re-applying for at least the next 5 hours. It comes with two dual-sided brush for the perfect application of your color of choice!

3. Diorshow mascara– black

I have been using this mascara for about 3 years now, and I swear by it! I have yet to find a mascara that is better than this. The combination of the mascara and the soft bristly brush makes my super straight eyelashes look fuller, longer and prettier.

4. Kit Cosmetics Lip Sheen

Kit Cosmetics lip sheen has been in my bag for over 6 months now, and it is so handy because it comes in a tube (goodbye nasty melted lipgloss!) I use it every night before I go to bed and I wake up with kissable lips. Plus the minty smell is so refreshing!

5. Chanel Nail Vernis– Le Particuliere

This color has been my fail-safe color for the year. Although the nude trend started in 2010, wearing pastel colored nail polish (like Pre Fall/ Winter 2010 trend) makes me feel juvenile and wearing gray nail polish (Fall/Winter 2010 trend) makes me feel washed out. This color is so flattering and suits any skin color.

Christmas presents!

26 Dec

Christmas is a time to be spoilt, to indulge and to celebrate of course! I love getting presents and letting my imagination run wild when I see a wrapped box with my name on it. Also, the thought of them knowing me so well makes me feel loved and special. My Christmas day was filled with laughter, gathering of friends and family, eating yummy food, plenty of shopping and of course plenty of hugs.

Here are the presents that I got from these amazing people.

From one of my best friends I got a Michipedia fashion book with gorgeous illustrations and funny definitions of fashion-esque words.

 

From another one of my best friend, a Peter Alexander funny bunny pyjamas (Peter Alexander is a GENIUS)

And guess what!! a Peter Alexander funny bunny slippers from my other best friend as well!! I guess I do remind them of a bunny after all…From my lovely group of friends, I got a packet of Guylian chocolates. (these just melt in your mouth! amazing!)

From my lovely little sister I got a Peter Alexander 3 little pigs pyjama set and a Kimmidoll keychain

From my very adorable boyfriend, I got a spa indulgence voucher and of course a love letter :)

and lastly, from my wonderful mom, I got the bag of my dreams…

 

Chanel classic flap bag

It’s been 3 years since I’ve wanted this classic bag and I finally got it.

Thank you to all my wonderful friends and family for the gifts and for the abundance of food!
