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.
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!

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*
