88 colors palette, MAC haunting e/s

Have you ever been really broke and having denied yourself everything (okay, almost everything) for a month and suddenly one fine day, you just snap, go koo koo and go on a shopping spree? Uh, cause I just did that and now I'm sitting here wondering what the hell I was thinking.

"If money don't grow on trees, I wonder why banks have so many branches"
- lame ass joke of the day


Since I've already bought the items that I did, all I can do now is put them into good use and continue with the daily kick-myself-in-the-ass routine. But anyway MAC recently launched Make Up Collection here in Penang (about 4th Sept?) I'm still fuming at the fact that they launched it in KL before the price increase and launched in Penang after the price increase. *grits teeth*

I bought only ONE thing from the entire collection. A blue eyeshadow that I missed during the Alexander McQueen Collection about 2 years ago called Haunting. I must admit that I bought it because I love the colour but how often I'll actually use it is.. low. *sigh*


Come to Mommy, my pwetty~

A few days later, I finally caved in and bought the 88 color palette online. It was the last one and the seller was having a clearance sale since one of the eye shadows were damaged. I realized that it was only damaged a little and was still usable so I got it. Including shipping it was RM53 in total. Ironic, these 88 colours cost less than my one MAC eyeshadow. HMPH.

Waited for a good 3 days and finally it came. Wee-hee!


It finally arrived on the 3rd day! The nestled between the newspapers is muh long awaited palette


Don't ask me what the headlines means, I can't read Chinese. I'm a sad excuse of a Chinese. Wrapped in 3 layers of bubble wrap


Uh-oh.. something's wrong. I see bits of broken shadows all smeared across the palette. I was literally starting to break out in cold sweats seeing this. Ingredients used.


The beige that was originally broken, the lime and orange was the ones that broke on the way to my house

As I suspected and fear, broken shadows. The lime green was a really nice colour too. Was kinda upset. Can't blame the seller since she's wrapped everything nicely so it must have been the postman who can't read the words "Fragile" stated outside the box. It kinda shows that when it comes our postal service, we're still have a 3rd world country service. Sheesh!

Well, just out of boredom I quote our former Works Minister of Malaysia, Samy Vellu on Pos Laju (the postal service I used, Pos Laju can be translated as Fast Post)

"Esok kirim, Hari ini sampai"
Translated: Send tomorrow, Recieve Today

Having been born and living in Malaysia for the past 25 years, I never knew we had a Time Machine.

Due to his controversial presence in Malaysian politics and his penchant for foot-in-the-mouth moments, Samy Vellu is often made the butt of jokes. Usually, these jokes involve quotes attributed to him that are difficult to be verified.

How it broke my heart too


Ta-daa, the pink top that I bought from Joy during the Gurney Plaza weekend bazaar! Kern bought a dress from her and while waiting for Kern to decide, I spotted the dress and fell in love with it the moment I set my eyes on it. The pale cotton candy pink was so perfect. It took me a while to decide whether to buy it or not after Kern told me Elisa bought not one but two of the exact same top a few days before. In the end, I caveeeed and bought it. I'm really glad that Joy gave me a good price for the top.

That reminds me, it's not often I do this but if anyone's interested, Joy has a blogspot too. I'm not sure if its been updated but feel free to browse around. Or you can always head over to the weekend bazaar in Gurney to check it out yourself. Prices are reasonable and they give 10% of profits to orphanages! o.O



Heeeeeeeeeeee~ I'm so pleased

Rom's Farewell dinner

A small part of the Clubhouse members; a group of very different people and different personalities who joins together to have fun

So Roms leaving this Thursday (we just got to know about it today so Pinky Doodle Doo has to do an impromptu dinner for him) He's heading to Genting and then to the border of Malaysia and Thailand. We'll miss him for sure. It feels a little weird knowing that he'll be so far away. The very best of luck Roms, you'll be missed and do you're best! We'll be sure to visit you! Take care!

<3

P.s: Elyn, I hope you're okay too T.T

Love the eye shadow palette! I swear if you mark anything "FRAGILE" the post men give it an extra hard shake - They should try labeling it as a "BOX OF ROCKS", I bet it would arrive there safe and sound.

Thanks for visiting my Soggy Dog Blog and trying to persuade me that I am not a goon... but I have the photographer to thank for that! :) Love your blog! :) - Kim

TJ Lubrano said...

aah that was a scary noise! when you gritted your teeth. Didn't know you could do that ^_^. The MAC color looks absolutely amazing!

Oh no!! some broke! How annoying! But you can still use it right?

I also have...wait let me rephrase this...my sister also has this palette. I love the colors and I can just look at the little colorful circles for a long time ^_^. They are quite good too, but the intensity of the colors is a little less compared to a MAC one. But still it's a really cool palette to have!

Oh Fafinette (one girl mentioned here)...she is really cool and the way she puts on make up is also very cool to watch! She is quite funny too haha.

*waves* Till next time Bella!!
Ciao Xx
