The Body Ship Shimmer Waves

While I was super stressed last week, I went out of my mind and bought something. And it turned out fabulous! Introducing The Body Shop Shimmer Wave! Oh the cupcake was free from Benefit, we didn't buy anything but the SA gave us anyway, uhh thanks!


Free cuppie cake from Benefit and The Body Shop Shimmer Wave in Peach
Ain't the cuppie cake so gorgeous looking? *dreamy sigh*

We saw this first in while visiting Mr.C in Queensbays last week and while buying the body butter for mom, we spotted this beauty just sitting there. Major drool. There was only 2 colours available; Pink and Peach and the top half of the Pink has broken off so we didn't get to swatch it properly. Couldn't decide which colour to get and since I'm super tight I decided to think about it first and see if I really want it in the end. Fast what fast? *mouthful of cupcake*

Few days later, E went on raving about how beautiful the colour was and how high the reviews at makeup alley was and how it was even better than Bobbi Brown's Shimmer Brick! E is incrediable, I didn't even ask her to check or anything and she did it all herself for god knows what reason. She then asked what highlighter I usually used and found that besides my MAC Mineralize Skin Duo (which the shimmer part has hit pan) I have no "proper" highlighter. My MAC Vanilla didn't count along with my MAC CCB Luna and RedEarth's Secret Potion (according to her) and it's time I get a proper highlighter.


Swatched the colours from bottom to top, The behind :D

So E, K & I headed over to Gurney this time to take a look, and it according to majority votes, the Peach suits me better as the Pink is a little too frosty. There was 10% discount and I went back self doubting and worried if I should have bought it. Sure the price is nothing compared to a BB Shimmer Brick but..but...*sniff*

Less than one day later, I'm so bloody glad I got this, it's worth every cent! I've really impressed with the colour payoff and how beautiful it looks on my skin and how it makes my skin glow and make me look healthy instead of a walking corpse. I can't stop smiling as I'm typing this, I'm so happy!


Took this in the morning while getting ready for work, only half done, and excuse the chipmunk face, I don't know why but guess my face is a little puffy in the mornings. Never realized till I took the pictures. And YES, I have pores, I'm only human afterall

Re-ment's Itoshi no Utori Sweets

Nearly cried when E told me my Utori Sweets has arrived. Not tears of happiness but more of 'WHYYY?!? I'm broke' kind of tears. E showed me the pictures last month and told me how much she likes this set and I wasn't all that impressed but some mistake happen and Uncle Tong ended up ordering for both me and her. *sigh*

I was comtemplating on avoiding Uncle Tong for a couple of days till pay day comes out but when we headed to Midlands for lunch, we stopped by and I thought, this month or next, in the end, I'll have to get it and so I did. Uncle Tong gave us some discount and looking at it closer, it is a very nice set. I love the muffin set. I love muffins! I love anything to do with cupcakes and muffins and candies and chocolates and coffee and tea and cakes and puddings and...

Oh cuppie cake, why are you so gorgeous? *stares at the cupcake*
