Elianto Color Impression Mascara + Hello Kitty Pens, NOTD: Polka Dotta + etc

Sunday 8/9

Kept my promise to a friend to visit him at the place he worked in and off I went all blurry eyed one fine afternoon. As usual Gurney Plaza was jammed packed with people. I wanted to buy the same watermelon coin purse that I've been eyeing from God knows when and since there was a promotion I thought it was a good time to buy. I previously bought the exact same two items for someone special, I hoped that the person liked it >.<;;


I'm not sure why, but I really liked the watermelon on the coin purse. It's so cute! It's not practical since it can't store alot of coins but I wanted it anyway, along with the coin purse, I also got the handphone charm. Kinda got sick of people squeezing my strawberry charm and needed something to distract them. LOL!

While waiting for a table at Kim Gary, I went browsing around some shops when I saw the Hello Kitty's face on somehting that resembled a toothpaste. On a closer look, it turned out to be pens! Whee! I happily got two. Yes, I bought it because it was so darn cute but I can't vouch for how confortable it is to be held.

Elisa met up during dinner and together we headed over to Elianto just to browse around because we were waiting for another friend to join us. There, I saw it!


I didn't realize the words wasn't printed on the wand but on the piece of plastic seal. Was happily tearing it off before I realize!

Yes yes, although I repeatedly told myself that I will not buy any cosmetic related items, I did. I bought a mascara. I'm a bad girl, but it was half price off and my old one was drying up so I had no choice, atleast that's what I told myself.

I currently have two mascara that I alternate between, my favourite HG Kate separate volume mascara and the not so favourite, pretty much hated Rimmel Glam Eyes. The Kate separate volume mascara has recently been discontinued and replaced with new formula gel type whatever with a big ugly price tag and thus my search for a new HG mascara begins - again. Nothing good last forever is so freaking true.


Elianto Color Impression Mascara, 8g

I spotted the 50% sign first before the mascara. The sales lady told me that it was the latest mascara from Elianto is a 3 in 1 mascara. It promises volume, lenghtening and curling effect. All this for a mere RM19.50 after discount. The original price is RM39 if you're too lazy to do the maths (I know I am). I love the cute packaging and it currently comes in only one colour - black!

I fear that the love ends right there though.

"You promised me the moon and the sun, the birds and the sky
You promised me a wonderful life they were under lights
You promised me all diamonds and pearls that I never kept
You promised me where the roses are gold but soon you forgot"
-You promise me; Ingrid

I'm thinking that this is probably because it's still new and a little too 'wet', so give it a little while more and after the formula dries just a little this mascara might just be really nice to use. For now, I'm a little disappointed.

WARNING: SCARY LOOKING EYES BELOW


Bare bare bare, no foundation, nothing on, my face I mean
Anyway the above is probably the wrong way to curl your eyelashes but my curler is a total ^%$#@! and it took me 4 times to get anything curled and when it curled, it curled 90 degrees. ARGH!

One thing, E never stops reminding me, if you intend to wear colour contact which is not exactly natural looking, i.e, blue, green etc always always wear make up or it might be a little too 'shocking'.

I agree with her, Gray contacts fits me really nice and when I have it on, not drawing my eyeliner is fine, but although Blue contacts fits me just as well, because it's not exactly natural looking, I need to apply on some eye make up before heading out. So do keep the tips in mind girls.


No primer, no basecoat, just the mascara. 2 coats in total
Whoever that thinks being fair is cool, take a good look at my pigmentation! Bloody hell!!!

*Starts humming Ingrid's song* Promises are often made, but not always kept. Lesson number one is cosmetic buying. :P So ho hum, lets see, volume - a little below average, lengthening effect - average, curling effect - Curl? what curl?

Then again, this might be good for girls who already has lots of eyelashes. I cannot totally blame the products just as well since I do know that my eyelash is a pain in the behind to satisfy. It's too bloody fine so the day I find a mascara that could satisfy me, you'll know that is one hell of a magical mascara!

EDIT: I forgot to mention, this mascara is totally not waterproof :P


Why does this picture reminds me of Ju-on or some horror movie poster?
XD


Tuesday, 8/11

Its been some time since I did anything with my nails, been overly lazy and clueless on what to do with them lately but JeanJean's nails reminds me to do something about my own just as well. Searched YouTube for some kind of inspiration, hoping some magic light might shine down upon me and give me an idea. No light bulbs above head after a good half hour despite going through anything to do with leapord print, hime gyaru style with more sparkly stones that I have eyelashes, hello kitties and so forth, I finally saw one I quite liked. Polka dots!


The suspects
Left to right: Elianto's base (I think it's base, lost sticker) white, The Face Shop's BR801, Sasa NEPK004(?) and Etude House PK004


I didn't have any of the colours the girl used so I decided to do my own version of it. Paint on the base coat, I sincerely hope that whatever I painted on was indeed the base coat although, I have a sneaky suspicion it's actually the top coat. The Face Shop's BR801 came in next, the glittery pink from Sasa is optional, I didn't realize how glittery it was till I painted it on. Next up, Etude House's PK004 , paint it french manicure style and yay, you're almost done!


I have yet to apply the top coat on it

I used a toothpick to paint on the little white dots since I didn't have any fancy nail dotting equipment and it surprisingly worked very well. I stabbed the pointed part of the toothpick on my table to blunt it a little and made the little dots.

Hmm, I discovered something new today. I always knew that my room traps heat a little too easily and is easily the hottest room in the house but I didn't realize how hot.

Behold!



The Hello Kitty sweets I bought because I liked the tin box.


It has started melting after being left in my room for about a month or so


Left any longer and this happens!
Everything melted to oblivion, it was a good full tin of sweets


*Sigh*

Hello!! Oh I love your nails!! really pretty! I don't have the patience to do a French manicure though ^_^. I even bought a fast drying topcoat just to get everything done even faster haha. And have to say it works perfect (I'm thinking of the name...but can't remember! And I'm not at home to check -_-''....)! The Hello Kitty pens are really cute! I never saw pens like that before!
