Mini MAC Hauls + Red Black nails

Le package~

So it finally came. from USA to Singapore and finally to my little house in Penang. A lengthy journey as well as a treacherous one, ah, forgive the drama but I was really worried it got lost in transit but anyway, it arrived a little battered but in one piece.

If you remember that I was badly wanting MAC Skinfinish in Petticoat in my previous post, I FINALLY GOT IT! Wheee! The colour is as they said, fantastic! I'm thankful that after ordering and all, the colours doesn't look as if someone smacked me or if if I fell into someone's birthday cake filled with pink icing. It came off as a natural flushed look on me. And for backup, I ordered another extra!

Close up on Petticoat, look at all the pretty veining on it!

A quick swatch of Petticoat on my hand

I also ended up getting the MAC Limited Edition Basic Adoring Carmine Brushes set. I was wanting the Basic Face set but the person got my orders mixed up and I ended up with brushes I wasn't too crazy about.

Medium-sized round brush bag in wine-coloured satin with red-orange patent zippered enclosure and wristlet. Also includes a fabric brush holder with five professional metallic red handled brushes and a gloss black M∙A∙C logo: the 129 SE, 219 SE, 239 SE, 266 SE and the 316 SE. Limited edition. - MACcosmetic.com

Taa-daa~

Battered and bruised

Also out of sheer boredome - yet again, I decided to paint my nails with CALAR, the cheap OPI imitation I got from Gurney the last time. Indeed as my sis said, the colour was pretty intence and I needed just 2 coats of it. The reddish colour was slightly pearly and I really am not a big fan of pearly nail colours and it looked plain for some reason, so I added the darker shade of red on top. The darker shade of red came out pretty sheer compared with the red underneath and still not satisfied, I added black on top. I initially wanted some sort of colour gradiation from light to dark but I was just too damn lazy to drag the black down when I was painting it and thus I ended up with a bold streak of black across ala french manicure style.

It wasn't done nicely as you can see all the bubbled on nails. That's from turning the fan on full blast while painting my nails. Always always switch off your fan when painting your nails or bubbles will appear. I've known this fact for a long time but since it was just an experiment, I thought "Ah, what the hell"

Oh and on last Saturday night, at roughly about 5 in the morning, a thief broke into our house - also yet again. This time, he raided both my sister's and my car before taking off when my dad woke up. *sigh* My car was in a complete mess!

I wasn't the last person to use the car so I had went to sleep without locking the doors. I was in and out of sleep having weird nightmares when I head my dad shouted and then a bang on our metal fencing. I woke up and went out, the light were all on and from previous experience I pretty much guess what had happend.

I saw my car in a utter mess and I thought to myself, "*&^%$#@! AGAIN!" My dad asked me what I lost and I took one look at my car and saw that my sunglasses than Ian bought for me some time ago wasn't there. I was seething in anger. I cannot drive without my sunglasses as my eyes are sensitive to sun light. I not only squint terribly in the sun but I also start sneezing.

It doesn't look too bad cause dad had cleaned up a little

My dad took a quick look and after a few minutes waved my half buried sun glasses in my face, a whole entire chorus of angels sang "Hallelujah" on the back of my head. I was hopping around happily thanking God that the idiotic, I-hope-he-gets-his-hands-chopped-off thief didn't take it.

It was then my mom pointed at my make up bag on top of my father's car did I really literally wanted to kneel down and Thank God that the idiotic, I-hope-he-gets-his-hands-chopped-off thief didn't manage to take my make up bag away! He has specifically set the bag aside and had to take off without it when my dad woke up.

I left the make up bag under my passenger side seat because it was a little crampy in my bag and had forgotten to take it out after reaching home. It had my MAC Limited Edition mineralize skinfinish along with my newly bought Anna Sui rouge tint, Coastalscents angled brush, Lip brush from Elizabeth Arden and so forth. I would have really kill the idiot if he took them away and I managed to kill him. I'll suffocate him by shoving my tampons from the make up bag up his nostrils and strangled him to death with my bare hands. Not to mention, my sis got the Tokidoki make up bag for me from Singapore.

So in the end, he took two of my sister's sunglasses and my dad's binoculars. Please don't ask me what the heck is the binoculars doing in my car cause I don't know. Sis was very upset. The sunglasses didn't cost alot but she had really liked them, not to mentioned she went to the shop to get them again but they were already sold out so I feel really bad for her on her behalf. *sigh*

The only good thing that came out of all this is that mom has finally agreed to let me get a dog from SPCA! YAY!

Why SPCA? I do not agree to buying pedigreed pooches. It's a weird reason but I've always loved those 'garden retrievers' aka mutts.
Easy to care for, loyal and a little crazy, how can I not love them? :D
