Holy cow, see how long I’ve been MIA?? This would be my post before going back to Indonesia. I’ll be going back tomorrow right after my exam 😛 I’m nuts, I know. Yet I haven’t finished studying and not to mention packing 😛 My mum is so gonna kill me.

OK, so still remember the “Do you ever finish anything” challenge from ParisB last month? I had to use 1 primary eyeshadow and 1 blush for a month. In addition, I added 1 lipstick as well teehee. It’s been a month and I’ve been religiously sticking to the same stuffs. I admit it got a little boring at times, but it helped me to crack out my brain to combine the colors with other stuffs haha. One thing I’ve noticed from this challenge is that gold eyeshadow is very versatile. You can use it as lid color or crease color. I particularly like to use it as crease color 😉 It instantly makes my eye makeup looks glamorous 😀 Big yay for that!

So here’s the result of using the same eyeshadow, blush and lipstick for a month:

Another Quick Update

WARNING: Health hazard to your eyes 😛 Read at your own risk

Second paper was okay lol *see the lol? I think you can catch my drift already*. I didn’t sleep properly last night because I slept for almost 12 hours after my paper on Tuesday (I think I could only sleep for 30 minutes last night). I’m usually not a polar bear, but for some weird reason I just kept on sleeping even without turning any air-con or fan. I woke up for a while because I felt suffocated 😛

After the paper, I went to my lecturer’s office to collect my fourth assignment which he just finished marking. Even the fifth one came out earlier, wth. Just so you know, when he gave out the second and third assignments a month ago, I couldn’t find mine. I waited for a while thinking maybe he hadn’t finished marking all the stuffs as the class is pretty big and also a friend of mine hadn’t got hers back as well. After two weeks, still nothing. I emailed him TWICE to know the whereabout of my assignments and I even tried to look for him SEVERAL times at his office but to no avail. I even had to contact the unit supervisor, asking him whether he could help me out to check my internal grades (surprisingly, the most irritating lecturer voted by students was in a good mood and he said he was going to check it out for me).

Hey as the title says, I’ve been a good girl 😉 Nope, I didn’t haul again, okieee?

I found this box when I came back home from my uni (oh by the way, the lecturer was successful in making majority of the students unable to finish up answering all of the questions. Kudos!)..

What a nice surprise after a dreadful paper.. xD. It’s a gift from the best Ex-Bf in the world (cheh.. I only say this because I got a gift :P). No, we are not getting back together or whatsoever. He’s happy with his current partner and I enjoy spending my time with the guy I’m currently going out with. It’s just my ex-bf and I are good friends since.. erm.. years ago lol. So, the silly boy took a sneak peek at my wishlist and decided to grant some of them 😀 How schweet 🙂 Thank you! It did enlighten my mood a little 😀

I guess it’s time to cross out some stuffs from my wishlist, yay! He got me MAC brush cleanser and eyeshadow in Juxt. It’s a very pretty green color, me likes! I think he actually brought the list with him when buying those stuffs.. Who the hell will expect a guy to buy such girly makeups? lol He got me some I Nuovi stuffs that I’ve been lemming for quite some time. Eye Base and Metallogy eyeshadow in Brass and Bronze. He threw the freebies he got that day as well (he doesn’t wear any makeup anyway) which is the eyeshadow and blush palette as well as Dust in Starlight. He said he purposedly chose that pink color so that I’d be more girly. Wth.. Am I not girly enough?? lol Thanks a lot anyway!

Today I don’t think I’ll be able to write a lot.. Gotta catch up with my revision for Thursday paper. Wish me luck!

Anyway, I got Friendship Award from Hanna 😀 Thanks a lot! I really appreciate it 😀 I’m gonna start tagging once I have more time 😉

Another Attempt of Blue EOTD

Yes, I haven’t given up just yet on blue hues e/s despite them hating me like hell. It’s alright, I take it as a challenge teehee! Let’s see who’s the sucker in the end MUHAHAHAHA. (I think I’ve lost my mind a little bit.. I felt as if the blue hues e/s were challenging me). So let’s mark this as a start of my battle with blue eyeshadows. (Yes, it’s confirmed. I can no longer keep my sanity in check).

So here’s another EOTD attempt that I did after I finished transferring some of my NYX loose eyeshadows to the pills box. I just realised I was given quite a few of blue shades by a very sweet MUAer 😀

Pardon for the bad quality of the first picture.. Bad lighting and bad phone (I was using my old camphone).

List of the products used:

Loose eyeshadow or pigments can be very messy sometimes.. More often than not, the jar or vial it comes with is not practical. When you are not careful enough, you might end up spilling the whole jar which will be quite a waste. Take an example of MAC full size pigment jar. It’s pretty big compared to the vial one. Being at the same room with a clumsy person like me, the pigment jar may fall down and there you go my $$$ (okay I didn’t buy it as I got it from a swap but still I swapped it with something valuable). I’ll be crying and heartbroken.. Another example would be NYX loose eyeshadows.. I own several vials and to me, they are not practical at all. The mouth is so small that it is quite difficult to pick up some of the eyeshadow with a brush. I know it’s cheap, but if it spills, I’m gonna have to do extra work cleaning up my room! Besides, I like my NYX loose eyeshadows 😀

Some of the samples that I got previously came in a clipped plastic baggie and contact lens case.

The contact lens case is a brilliant idea yet I found that it takes quite a lot of space in my storage area if I was to store all of my loose eyeshadows in contact lens cases. I don’t own a lot of pigments and loose eyeshadows yet I still find it not practical enough to put several contact lens cases in my eyeshadow storage area.

Yesterday when I was in the kitchen, I came accross this unused pills storage box. Then the idea just popped out, why don’t I just use this as my loose eyeshadows and pigments storage box? At least it reduces the chance of me spilling my eyeshadows 😀

It’s pretty simple and easy! All you need is scissors, writeable tape or colorful (optional) sticky notes, the small pills storage box itself, a pen and a spatula 😀

Yes ladies, I still am struggling on my exam preparation yet I just can’t neglect my blog, aye? 😀 This post is going to compare four different bronzers that I have. Instead of reviewing them one by one, I decided to put them all in one post ;). Beware though, this post will be a picture heavy one. Teehee~

Just in case you can’t read what I typed in the picture (which I’m pretty sure you can’t lol), I will re-write the products’ names. On the top left is The Body Shop Shimmer Waves in Bronze. The one on the top right is MAC Style Warrior Bronzing Powder in Solar Riche. On the bottom left is the ever famous Benefit 10 and beside it is Physicians Formula Baked Bronzer in Baked Bronze.

Why bronzers? I am not a snow-white fair 😛 My skin is considerably fair-medium, but I am dead pale. Unless I let myself being baked under the sun, only I can show up the healthy baked flush. Anyway, I believe that’s pretty damaging to my skin, so it ain’t happening. Instead, I opted for blush and bronzer to perk up my look :D. I don’t like looking pale with obvious blush, so a little touch of bronzer will help me out A LOT. Besides, my arms are not as light as the rest of my body (I wear long pants everyday) so toning down my skin tone is pretty necessary. Hence, all the bronzers… lol

Here’s where the nightmare begins..

Thanks to sweet Lynn who awarded this to me 😀 I really appreciate it ^_^

I know things have been pretty slow lately. Just so you know I will be having my exams on 16, 18 and 24 June and hence me being a phantom for several days :P. I also need to re-arrange my room as my little sister will move in on July 2.. I need to put in some stuff and blablabla. I also need to apply for her resident card, and not to mention I’m going back to my beloved country on June 24 itself, so I need to pack up some stuff. Oh yeah I might be absent from June 24 til July 2. I need my break and I miss my family 😉 It’s about time for some family quality moments 😀

There are some review queueing up at the moment, yet I still am trying to find some time to write on those.. Hopefully I’ll be able to write them soon 😉

I have been a good girl this week lol I went to get TBS makeup case for my mum and accidentally bought another blush 😛 But that’s all, so consider me as a good girl! (for this week, at least) lol. I also bought my solutions. This one is a necessity 😉 so can’t be helped.

Wait , there’s more…
