Worst I was so worried about work that it gave me writer's block the past week, I didn't know what to write or say and I was losing sleep over everything. But I realize that if I do not update today, I'll never have the time to as I'll be spending my weekend in roadshows once again for IJM and Reapfield, so I'll compile everything together and to do a fast review on the items I bought recently starting from a few weeks ago.

MAC fluidline was an unexpected buy, E was browsing through some blog when she came across someone selling MAC Sweet Sage and alerted me knowing how much I love blues and greens. One looks later, I was in love. It's olive green with gold shimmer. It was beautiful! Since it's too light to be an eyeliner, I mainly use it as an eyeshadow. I normally pair MAC Nylon (highlighter) with Sweet Sage since they are both have gold-ish base and blend it all together with black. I'll post some pictures of the look up later.
I've been searching high and low for this colour for quite some time, it was launched back in the Mid - 2007 with the MAC C Shock collection. A colleague asking me why I bought such an "aunty" colour after taking one look at the colour in the tube. I do admit that the colour on the tube is deciving but it's describe as a sheer red berry colour and I instantly knew that it's going to fit me but I asked E just in case.
E took one look and said 'Get it!' and she's hardly wrong and so I got it, wheee!
Finally, me and E ordered more brushed from Coastalscents.com. We didn't get a huge load but just about 6 brushes altogether. Regreted it, should have ordered more! I never had proper brushes before Coastalscents and I'm now slowly collecting them after getting nagged from so many people saying that I should invest in good brushes. And after using them, I can tell that there is definately difference between good and bad brushes. These are so soft and has yet to shed a single hair. I'm really happy with this batch. Just do a wash before using. Can't risk irritating your eyes right?
It all happend when the seller private messaged E to check out her page and we saw that she was selling cosmetics (no name brands) for a very super low price. Being greedy with itchy hands, we order a few stuffs each and shared shipping. Boy, were we disappointed. It really goes to show that nothing good is free. In our case, it wasn't free, despite being cheap, I wouldn't have even forked out RM1 for this item. To be truthful, I wouldn't even have taken it if it was displayed outside a shop for FREE! I'm so tempted to give it away for free to anyone that message me but it's so disguisting it's an insult to even give it to anyone! I'm not sure how so many girls actually order this stuffs. I'm guessing that they do not know how the real thing actually looks like.
Since I've recently acquired Bobbi Brown's gel eyeliner in Black, I decided to try out the Relian's gel eyeliner in Brown. I was expecting dark, chocolatey brown but what I got was ... brown. The Milo kinda brown. To me, its too light to be an eyeliner. It's going to look really awkward on me and that tone of brown will make my eyes look puffy and swollen if used alone. I really have no choice but to try to use it as an eyeshadow or something and blend it with other colours. This was another item without a swatch, and the seller's picture looked like a much darker brown. The seller happily told people that some buyers used it for their eyebrow. I can understand why, it's a beautiful shade if you are a BLONDE! I'm so so disappointed with the items I got. But hey, if the brown appeals to you, go ahead and get it, it was really cheap too!
