Sleek Makeup Little Haul

Hi guys,

My package from Sleek Makeup has arrived. I figured I will make a post on the stuff that were in the package. First, there are two True Colour Lipsticks: Matte Stiletto and Sheen Coral Reef.

The Matte Stiletto is very similar to the Nars Matte Red lipstick that I had. The colour is quite similar; however, this is about half the price of the one I got at Nars. Definitely a good deal! So to have that perfect red lip with the Matte Stiletto, you can youtube the tutorials. There are tons! I don't think I will need to re-do what people did already.

The Coral Reef is kind of like a watermelon colour. It's definitely nice for summertime. I personally like the Coral Reef better because the formula is more moisturized since it's sheen based. To let the colour standout, I would recommend using a peachy lipliner for the base.

Stiletto & Coral Reef

Second, there is a mineral based eyeshadow palette in STORM 578. This palette is good for everyday natural makeup because it consists of a lot of base colours like nude, brown and black. 

The packaging is a little bit crappy, but that's ok. The quality of the eyeshadow is definitely very good for a drugstore standard. The eyeshadows are very true to colour and are vivid. 

In this palette, there are 3 matte colours and 9 shimmery colours.

I hope you guys enjoyed my little review on SleekMakeup's products.
Next time when I see you guys, it will be my clip-in hair extension review post. 

BTW, my order from BARNEYS had also arrived. LOVING my new sandals to every bits and pieces. 

Until next time.
With Love, Christy

Quick Updates

So.. there isn't much I can write about these days.

But I will be doing a couple of reviews later on next week hopefully because I will be getting some stuff from sleek makeup, a clip on extension kit from superstrands, and maybe a brush from sigma. If they happen to come in next week before Wed, I will try to squeeze in a little review on at least one of the items I just mentioned.

Next month will be a super busy month for me because I will be having exams and there are tremendous amt of work that are needed to be hand in. Therefore, aside from school, I really don't have much time for regular blogging, but I will try to squeeze in a post here and there.

See you guys soon.

Barneys NY's on SALE

Hello everyone,

Exciting news, and some of you might have known.
Barneys' on sale at the moment.
Although I am not physically in New York right now, I totally wish I am, its online store is holding a sale for some selective items. Most of the things are either out of most sizes or are just last season items. I am sure anyone can find something he/she likes.

With my very small feet, I was only able to hunt down one pair of sandals at 50% off. There are a few pairs that I absolutely love but cannot get because they are simply too big. I am seriously having this love-hate relationship with Barneys right now. I figured I might as well share with you guys some of the items that I wish to get but cannot.

The first one is the sandal by 3.1 Phillip Lim. Only size 8 and 8.5 are left. What I really love about this sandal is that it almost goes well with everything. Plain white tee with jeans would work. A nice long maxi dress would work. Right now, it's selling at 229.00 USD. You can click on the image below if you are interested; it will bring you directly to barneys' link.

The second one would be this lovely elegant looking sandal by Loeffler Randall Rowena. This is currently selling at 179.00 USD with size 6, 6.5, and 8.5 left. I have to say, this is a VERY GOOD DEAL. The black lace ruffles gives a sense of elegance and romance. I would pair this with a maxi dress or a silky maxi skirt with a beige/nude top. Again, jeans would work too. 

The last one is this cute sandal from Opening Ceremony. This pair I have actually seen with my naked eyes in Lane Crawford a few months ago. The satin blue and black ruffles are sooooo soft that you cannot get your hands off them. I decided not to get them because I wasn't looking for sandal at that time, and I was on a budget. I was sooo excited to see it on sale at Barneys, but only size 9 was left. I was again left disappointed. So this cute pair is selling at 289.00 USD right now. Grab them before they go!

That's about it for today. I am not going to post any handbags or clothings because I figured that if I do that, my post will become too long. LOL~ I am sure there are a lot of good deals in the handbag section; I have skimmed through my favourite designers handbag, and the prices are quite appealing. However, I've promised myself that I could only buy a certain amount each month. So, no handbags for me.

Eyeko Product Review

Hi Everyone
So I am back with a short review on the eyeko products that I have ordered earlier. I have tried out two of the products from my order: VINTAGE nail polish, Graffiti Eyeliner Pen

So first off, the VINTAGE Nail polish: the polish is very liquidy, and the brush is fairly long which made application a lot easier. I have to say that I am very impressed with Eyeko's nail polish given that they are only 6.00 USD. The scent is not strong, and it dries up quickly. The colours are very true to what you see from the bottle. Also, two layers of polish is already sufficient. The one that I've used is the one in the middle shown in the pic below. I would give this product a 4.5 out of 5.

Next would be the graffiti eyeliner pen. Again, this product does not disappoint me in any way. I have used a lot of liquid eyeliner in the past, and most of them tend to smudge away very quickly. I had only one brand of liquid eyeliner that I stick to for about 3 years. Now, I've found another favourite. The graffiti eyeliner pen does not smudge even after 6 hours (well, could be longer, but I was only wearing it for 6 hours today). The tip of the eyeliner pen is very fine which made the drawing to be very accurate and precise. Even though this eyeliner does not smudge after so many hours, it does not make removal any difficult. You can just remove it with the normal eye makeup remover you use, and it will come right off. So, I use the graffiti pen for my everyday winged eyeline. 

If you have any concerns or comments, feel free to leave a comment or email me.

Sergio Rossi Slingback

*clears throat*

Let me proudly present you with the Nude Sergio Rossi Slingback I've got awhile ago. They are peep toes, 4 inches, Nude Patent Leather AND amazingly comfortable. I am not even joking at how comfortable these 4 inchers are. I own another pair of 4inches which is by YSL, they are not nearly as comfortable as these one.

The insole of the Sergio Rossi is made incredibly well; it fits the feet like a sock. Of course, if you don't like slingbacks, Sergio Rossi do carry this colour and style in a pump.

Anyways, check them out if you are looking for a comfortable shoe for graduation prom, business dinner, date ..... You can literally run in them (well, I might be exaggerating on this one). 

I got mine in a local department store called Lane Crawford.
I am sure there are retailers for Sergio Rossi alll around the world. If not, check the store locator out.

June 13th. Mini Haul

Two products I've bought today at SASA

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Complete UV Waterlight Lotion SPF 50+ PA +++
Clinique derma White Clinical brightening essence

My wig from vivianwig has arrived today. This wig is called a half head wig. From its name, this wig does not cover the whole head but only the back part of the head. You can either pin up your bangs (like what I did) so that your own hair will blend in with the wig or you can wear a hairband to cover up where the wig sits on your head. I think this half head style is most ideal for summertime since having the entire head covered with a wig is probably too hot. As you can see, the result is very natural. I like it very very much. Very impressed with how it turns out. This is currently selling at 79 RMB. Contact me if you need more info. 

That's it for now. 

Love, Christy

craving for some mustard???

New polish from Bourjois. 

These two colours I got from their new collection are the 36 Jaune Trendy and 42 Orange Creation. I was going to get the green minty colour, but I recall myself ordering a similar colour on eyeko. I am still waiting for that to come in the mail. I fell in love with the mustard colour right away as this isn't the most common colour you can find. Then, the orange colour caught my eye also! 

However, these enamels are not the easiest enamel to apply. They are very thick in texture which means that you have to try to obtain very tiny amount for the first time and apply a very thin layer, or else you might create clumps or bumps when applying the second layer. I got quite frustrated while applying this evening, but I could be a very bad at applying nail polish though. However, I am loving the colour to bits and pieces. 

On the side note, Bourjois HongKong is currently having a promotion right now. If you buy three nail enamels, you will get a 125ml Gentle Nail Enamel Remover for free. It claims to be scented with red fruits and vanilla and also not to dry out the nails. Anyhow, if it does dry up my nails and makes my nails crack, I will let you guys know as soon as possible, but in the meantime, I need to finish up my other bottle of nail polish remover first. =P

Lie to Me - 2011 Korean Drama

Hello. Aside from cosmetics, clothes, music, I want to talk about my favourite pass-time event of all times - watching k-drama. Just 3 weeks ago, SBS has released a drama called "Lie to me" starring Yoon eun-hye (My favourite korean actress of all times) and Kang JiHwan. This story is about a turning-to-be 30-year-old Adminstrative Officer (Kong AhJung) at the Ministry of Culture lying to her friend about her getting married to a president (Hyun KiJoon) of World Hotel. The reason for AhJung's lies was to get back at her friend who stole her first love during high school. More lies are told to cover up the lies said before. Eventually, the president of World Hotel found out. However, as rumours spread, AhJung and KiJoon fall in love with each other... But of course, there will be obstacles that both of them have to overcome. We will see how this story leads us to.

Currently, episode 8 was just aired today. And I am refreshing the steaming site every sec for the episode with subs to be released. @.@ Sometimes, I am very frustrated about the korean drama schedule/timeable. Why only air twice a week? I don't understand. It will take forever to finish a drama. I would much prefer the system in TVB where they air thru monday to friday. Anyways, I can't wait to see how the story turns out. AhJung and JiKoon have already exchanged a kiss on last week's episode. The pace in this story sure is fast!!!!

Trailer with Eng. Sub.
