Hello my beauties, I've got some exciting news to share with all of you today. Guess what................
the Suria Meriang staff sale is back this year! AM SUPER EXCITED!!!

If you don't already know, Suria Meriang Sdn. Bhd. carries cosmetic brands such as:

I'll be heading to the sale with my girlfriends and my brother's girlfriend, Mandy. Thanks to Melia who gave us tickets.

I have yet to plan (financially that is) and also what I should be looking out for. I'm looking forward to the MAC & Bobbi Brown items mainly, and maybe a little of Origins/Clinique as well. But for this year, I'd be going for MAC and/or B.Brown items, looking forward to seeing some holiday collections maybe and of course, sets is something I'd be looking for this year. 

Based on the previous sale that I went for, most of the items were sold in sets of 2/3 items for the price of one. 

For example, for my previous haul during last's year warehouse sales, I snagged the Bobbi Brown Corrector and Creamy Concealer for RM 80, and to my personal knowledge, each of these items cost RM 80. So in conclusion, it's a buy 1 free 1 sort of deal. 

List of items bought last year & price as per below:

1. Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer (Beige) & Corrector (Light Peach) set: RM 80 (ori. price RM 80 each)
2. Bobbi Brown Concealer Kit (the one with the concealer on top and powder at the bottom): RM 70/RM 90 - can't remember clearly (ori. price RM 130 per set)
3. Estee Lauder Double Wear Shadow Creme in Golden Sand: RM 30 (ori. price RM 65 each)
4. Clinique Blended Face Powder & Brush: RM 60 (ori. price RM 105 each)

So I'd be posting up a haul soon enough but at the mean time, I'll post up some reviews over the weekend. Thanks for reading love!

I am so freakin' excited to share this with all of you! Just had to blog right now.. ELF Cosmetics is going to release a new product soon called the 'Long-Lasting Lustrous Eye Shadow'.

I believe that it will be a part of their studio line because of the packaging.

Here's a picture from the E.L.F Cosmetics instagram page.

Look out for it on www.eyeslipsface.com
I know I will! *squealsssss*

Peacock Glam- Colour Sense Vivid Glam Eyeliner

About 3 weeks ago, I accompanied my mum to our local Cosway store. The Cosway store sells from skin care to beauty products to supplements, household items and many more. They basically sell everything.

So there I was with my mum, while she was browsing through their hair care products, I browsed through the beauty section and I found some eyeliners. Being the inquisitive me, I had to swatch everyone of it. And I found one of the MOST beautiful eyeliner pencil I've ever swatched!

It's the Colour Sense Vivid Glam Eyeliner. It's a pencil liner. Look gorgeous as is and when swatched, it made me go 'Ooohhh and Aaaahh'. Why? Because it's SUPER smooth and creamy like none other! It practically melts like butter.

  • Application- Easy
  • Pigmentation- AMAZING
  • Smudge-able? Yes
  • Waterproof? Tested- Yes, definitely.

It wore well on even my waterline which amazes me. The price was not too bad for an eyeliner this great. It was less than RM 15 if I remembered correctly.

Colour choice wise, if I wasn't mistaken, there were 4 colours. There was no names except code numbers. So there was a metallic indigo blue, a burgundy one, a black with silver shimmer and the one I bought which was a peacocky turquoise gem shade (it's BEAUTIFUL). Now, on to some pictures.

The pictures I know definitely does not do the product justice but I'll try to upload better ones soon. I promise.

Glowing With Benefit Cosmetics: GIRL MEETS PEARL

A few months ago, I finally purchased the Benefit Cosmetics Girl Meets Pearl. It is said to be liquid pearl for the face. It costs RM 115 (if I remember correctly) for 12.0 mL/ 0.4US fl. oz. worth of product.

Personally I love products that help me get that glow without looking too fake and this really does just that. It's so natural on the face that I myself have gotten a few compliments on my face the first few day I wore this! People whom I met often questioned me on why I looked pretty? It was weird but then I realized that it was this: Benefit Cosmetics Girl Meet Pearl.

For the price and the amount of product you'd be getting might seem a little steep but you'll only need a little to highlight your face but the product itself is of great quality. I've not encountered any fading throughout the day, unless of course if you'd wear it for more than 12 hours. Less than that, it stays.

Something I've noticed when wearing this highlighter is that when it's first applied on, it gives a cooling effect on the skin. The product contains Raspberry & Camomile which I think is the ingredients that gave off that soothing/cooling feel. The texture is amazingly light plus the cooling effect, it's heaven!

Without much further ado, here are some pictures with swatches and how it look like on my skin. Enjoy!

P.S. Excuse the HUGE face, but look at that glow!

Hello beauties, I apologize for the long silence, a lot of things has been happening in my daily life, for example, I GOT A JOB! =) An actual job. Well, having a job is pretty tiring but i'm doing fine so far, just the lack of updates on my blog. But I promise, I'll do my best to keep my updates consistent.

All right, here's the first post after a long time, it's my ELF Cosmetics collection so far after 2 years of discovering it. For those who don't know what ELF Cosmetics is sadly not available for purchase in any retail outlets in Malaysia but it is available for purchase from sprees online (example: LowYat Forums). It is a  cosmetic brand from the U.S. and ELF stands for Eyes, Lips and Face. Their products are highly affordable; ranges from $1 (Essential Line), $3 (Mostly Studio Line and some Mineral Line), $5 (Mineral Line) and etc.

Okay, on to my collection lets begin with the Mineral eyeshadows, $3 each (RM 10 each through spree in Malaysia):

From left to right: Socialite (see swatch here), Royal, Golden and Caffeinated.

From left to right: Socialite, Royal, Golden and Caffeinated

From left to right: Studio Contouring and Blush Compact ($3/RM10), Studio 'Golden' Bronzer ($3/RM10), Studio Translucent Mattifying Powder Compact ($3/RM10)- look how much I've used this, LOVE IT!

This is the Essential Eye Shadow Palette in 'Day 2 Night' ($1/RM7) The cream color in this palette broke during shipping. This was bought when I was studying in the UK, but all is good as the customer service people were great and they sent me a replacement =) *thumbs up*

ELF 32-piece Eyeshadow Palette in 'Warm', (i think this was $5, but I got this free during a promo). Spot the color I love using most =) hehe

From left to right: 
ELF Essential Hypershine Lipgloss in 'Bare' ($1/RM7)
ELF Studio Minty Lipgloss in 'Miami' ($3/RM10)
ELF Studio Matte Lip Color in 'Coral' ($3/RM10)
ELF Studio Glossy Gloss in 'Sweet Salmon' ($3/RM10)
ELF Studio Conditioning Lip Balm SPF 15 in 'Nice & Natural' ($3/RM10)
ELF Studio Conditioning Lip Balm SPF 15 in 'Mellow Melon' ($3/RM10)

Just to show you guys a swatch of the ELF Essential Hypershine Lipgloss in 'Bare'. It is GORGEOUS! Its like a peachy color with Gold shimmers/sheen to it. =)

This is the Studio Blush in 'Peachy-Keen' ($3/RM10). This is a beautiful peachy, bronzey blush, it has a gold sheen to it. Suitable for fair skinned girls, but this would only be good as a highlighter for darker-skinned beauties =) 

Next is the ELF Mineral Personal Blend Foundation SPF 15 in 'Light'. This is slightly more expensive ($8/RM 24 i think).

This is the ELF Essential Shimmering Palette ($3/RM10). This is a multi-tasking product, it can be used on the Eyes, Lips and Face, i think. =) I used it on my eyes as a shimmering base after I've put on my MAC Painterly Paint Pot and it works great, just dont use it on its own because i think if you just apply this on your lid, without setting it with a powder product, it will definitely crease. I don't like it as a face highlighter, because it feels greasy and oily on my face. Maybe it's just me.

Next on, is the ELF Essential Clear Eyelash and Eyebrow Gel ($1/ RM 7). This stuff I LURRVVVEEE... it is cheap and great for its supposed to do. I used it mainly for my brows, both sides are the same clear gel, just with different wands on it side but even for the eyelash side, I use it for my brows, it still works the same to me.

And then we have the ELF Mineral Eyeshadow Primer ($3/ RM 10). Okay, this stuff is amazing. I don't use eyeshadow primers that much but I do have the Urban Decay Primer Potion in Sin to compare to this ELF one. And I did an experiment on my own using the ELF Mineral eyeshadow in Socialite. I primed one side of my eye with the Urban Decay Primer Potion and the other with this ELF one, and guess what, for the price, it works equally as good! Or even better I should say. The color of the eyeshadow seemed to pop more with the ELF Mineral Eyeshadow Primer. A definite MUST-TRY!

Now above is the ELF Studio Eyebrow Kit in Light ($3/RM 10). This stuff is good at what it's supposed to do, my only complain is that when I swatch it as per above in the picture, it does not seem to have much red under-tones, but when used it seemed like a brown-red shade, I might just try the shade Ash in future to come. 

Now this is one item that I'm just okay with. It's a beautiful white gold-ish shade, but the texture of this
ELF Studio Cream Eyeshadow in Candlelight ($3/RM 10) is not as creamy as I thought it would be.

I have two of the ELF Essential Blush in Coy (above) and Innocence (not in picture). These are priced at $1/RM 7 each), Coy is a shimmery mauve shade, whereas Innocence is a satin/matte peachy pink shade.

(Left to right: ELF Essential Blending Brush, ELF Essential Defining Lip Brush, ELF Studio Eyeshadow 'c' Brush, and TWO ELF Studio Powder Brush)

Now for the ELF Essential line brushes are priced at $1/RM 7 each whereas the ELF Studio line brushes are priced at $3/RM 10 each. I love all the brushes I have, except I'm pretty on the fence with the ELF Essential Blending Brush as it sheds like hell, but it does a great job at blending, for the price, I guess I could not complain much  =) but I definitely recommend getting the ELF Studio Powder Brush, not to be mistaken with the ELF Studio 'Mineral' Powder Brush ya. =) it's sooooo soft and velvety against the skin. Amazing!

Hey hey my lovelies, today I just feel like rambling away on my blog as it is my last night in the UK. I'm leaving home for my country tomorrow at midnight (well, my flight's at midnight, so yea) I'm excited to finally be able to go home and be closer to my family, friends and loved ones but I am kinda nervous and sad at the same time as well. Maybe this is because I suddenly realized that my study life has come to an end (unless of course I decide to continue with my MASTERS, but obviously not now because I dont have the moolah to do so) but yea, it's nerve-wrecking knowing that my next chapter in life is about to begin, which is of course the work life. Kinda intimidating, I don't even know how difficult it is to find an actual job but all i could hope for is one that I would enjoy doing every single day probably for the rest of my entire life.

On the other hand, I can't wait to be able to hang out with my loved ones and friends again once I'm home. It has been ages since I've met them. Miss them so much, but to all my new found friends that I've met and got to know during the period of my stay here in the UK, I'll miss you guys too! And will definitely meet up some time.

For my cousin sister and her family who has been so generous by allowing me to stay with them throughout my course of studies, I deeply appreciate their hospitality and their generosity. Had a pleasant stay with them and learnt how to cook as well =p well, a little tiny bit of learning how to cook. Will miss the two adorable little boys, Tobey and Euan who's always smiling. Will miss seeing them grow up, but of course, updates will be there on my cousin sister's blog. =)

To Selfridges, my favourite place to visit here in London and of course the shopping area in Cambridge, I'll be back to visit you during my graduation trip back here to the UK at the end of year with a shopping spree in mind.
