This eye brow pencil, doesnt show up if you try to swatch on your dry palm/wrist, but it shows beautifully natural on your eyebrow. Brilliant ! I've been told that, this pencil only works when it is in contact with the oil produced by your brows. Does that make sense to you ? Im not sure about the truth behind it, or its just their marketing gimmick. I've never heard of this kind of product till I purchased one, yess it doesnt show up on ur skin but the colour appears on the eyebrows... and I love how this applies, besides the colour would last for longer hours which is better than using powder eye shadows.
I've heard many good reviews of this pencil before, hence I bought this to give it a try. Its been voted by many make up addicts and the pros as the best eye brow pencil so far ! Better than the MAC one.. yess I agree with that. If you dont like your eyebrows to be so natural looking, than this is not the one for you. The MUA suggested me to take the hard formula pencil in "hard 9 ", in the colour of very dark brown suitable for my dark black brow.
Another stuff adored by many pros is their eyelash curler. This one is great for Asian eyes coz this iconic tools is designed so small to give you the ultimate precision to accentuate the smallest lash. If you find the larger ones is too wide for your eyes.. try the mini eyelash curler. I bought the mini one.. coz sometimes the bigger version always doesnt grab the small lashes.. so this one is particularly to curl the eyelashes on the inner and outer corners. This curler comes with an extra silicone pad at the price of RM50.

Its been a while now since the last update ! Recently I dont have much time to write something ... or at least post some pictures regarding my activities ( for those who care...) hehe. I was soo busy babysitting my 5 months old niece (missing her already*sobs*) and finished up my embroidery works ! So, Im here to update my latest work .. yeehaw :) Nothing much .. just two simple embroidered hijabs that I made for my dearest sis in law whose currently staying in Beijing. Before I get started .. I knew the hijabs should be simple and sweet, coz she loves anything simple, sweet, pastel colours and she hearts PINK colour so much ! So, I decided to design 1 hijab with the lazy ribbon pattern on a soft pink voile ... Isn't the lazy ribbon cute ? This is one of my most fav embroidery design so far.

Sorry, the pictures r snapped using my cheap camera phone .. lol . so the quality is really bad !! damn it
Tadaa ... Its been a week since I bought these items .. but got no time to post the pictures in my blog ! :(
aahh .. Im always being lazy about this !! But still, I really wanna share with you guys especially the MAC lovers out there, of what I hauled from this collections ! :) Have you take a look at the stuffs urself ? Arent they adorable ?Like I said, Im a suckerrr of beautiful packaging , and this time MAC is making me crazy again with the ocean themes in orange and green colour packaging ! Beautiful tropical colour, isn't it. Perfect for summer .. yeah great for us coz we can always create the looks using these kind of colours the whole year .. ermm.. except during raining seasons :p
Since these are limited editionss .. I think everyone was rushing to get this before they are sold out ! Thats the tricky part y'know... even some of the stuffs are the re-promote ones... some are in the permanent range .. still people wanna buy extras because of the packaging ! grrrr .. like myself :p
Are you into greens and corals and pinkss ? If you do.. better grab them fast coz I heard that this new collections are almost sold out at most stores !
I didnt buy all of the items ... Im a poor girl *sobs* .. I just picked up something that I think I really need them !
The black boxes are not part of the collection. Those are the superglasses. I think im gonna frame all of the unique boxes ... I can be happy just by looking at the beautiful packaging .. aaaahhhh.. hehe
Three of 6 new eyeshadows. Two are from the permanent range which are Humid and Shimmermose. Luckily I already have the shimmermoss ... and lucky again coz I never bought Humid before. So I got humid in this cute packaging ! Its got seashells pattern on it :)
From L-R: Firecracker (Veluxe Pearl), Sweet & Punchy (Veluxe Pearl), Humid (Frost)
For me, Sweet & Punchy is a must have ! The colour is very rare ... but Its kind of of similar to Bitter e/s from the permanent line .. Its great combo with Humid ! love it
The swatches under natural lights: L-R: Firecracker, Sweet & Punchy and Humid
I dont really like the colour of Firecracker... its kinda hard to play around with the other colours. Orange + Green is a funky combination !! I dont like to be too fancy in front of people, lol. So Im gonna try brown + orangey combo for more natural look :) There's one very light peachy eyeshadows (Sand and Sun) that came out with this collection which I skipped coz its just so..so , nothing special about that colour but its great combination with Firecracker though. Its a nudey peachy pink colour that barely shows up on my NC35 skin !!
L-R: Eye Kohls in shimmer golden live colour (Rose & Thyme), Shimmery dark Teal ( Float On By), and a super pretty baby pink lip liner ( Life's A Breeze).
These eye kohls and lip liners come in a new cutey white pearl packaging with seeweed pattern! Theres another lip liner pencil in very bright Orange colour .. I dont think Im gonna wear a bright orange lipstick .. so I skipped that as well.
