My Lip Stuff, Clio Duo eyeshadow, Dr G, hair dyed - finally!

I'm utterly ashamed to admit that I lost a lip balm of mine recently while attending a workplace conference. I'm ashamed because it was a gift from Kern. I had treasure it so much and carry it everywhere I go. It was the LipIce Green Tea Ice Cream that she gave me and Elisa a while ago. I was heartbroken about it and came home sulking and near tears.

I hate losing things, especially if they were gifts. I don't get alot so I treasure every little bit of them. Even more so from the people I love.

The lip balm that I bought from Thailand, Luminese or something didn't turn out all that great so I left that in the office to use. It was fine initially but later I kinda found that it wasn't moisturing enough.

Came across Sue of MyBeautyFeeds reviewing about Crazy Rumors lipbalm. I've always been interested in them because of all the Coffee and Tea flavours they had. She was doing a comparison between CR and My Lip stuff and also Vintage sisters. One look at MLS and I wanted them!


Oh me babies~
I gave Pinky Doodle Doo the Mojito one :P


A few days of exchanging emails later and a quickie meet up at Gurney Plaza. I was the super proud owner of MLS's Mango Sorbet and Mojito plus Sue, the sweetie gave me a super cool freebie, a vintage sister's Orange Dream!! I remember staring at the small plastic bag wondering if I accidentally ordered something. I was a little stunned. T.T

Thank you Sue! Anyway your hair cut is fine, I love it! Oh I love love Elyn's latest haircut too. Seems like everyone cut their hair shorter.

Elyn, me own you cakie! Your latest vlog nearly made me cry. You look so fabulous it in and it just made me realize how much I've missed you. Me love you!

Since Chinese New Year is coming up and I got bitten by the shopping bug, in my case it would be the online shopping bug, I spotted some stuff in Su Mei's blog that I drooled after. One being the Dr.G Brightening Balm and like Sue, she's a real life friend of mine so yay, no shipping!

Poor people like me have every right/reason to be a cheapskate XD



I remember she mentioned that I would be able to fit the colour and that it's pretty good so me being me, got tempted but after the whole Dr.Jart+ ordeal in which I had HUGE headless pimples for weeks because I didn't know what was causing it, I've way more careful with BB creams now

I was also very unsure on whether the colour would be able to suit me, after buying the BRTC Protect Multiplex which turned out toooo dark for me, I'm super paranoid about the colours especially if it cost alot.


She passed me her BB cream and happily I tried them on; I was almost shaking in my shoes when I saw the word Arbutin and Titanium Dioxide which was also one of the main ingredients in Dr.Jart+ I was worried that perhaps, I was sensitive to Arbutin or something. Luckily it was not it.
No itchyness by midday and the coverage is fine by me.

Name: Dr. G Brightening BB Cream SPF PA+++
Coverage: Fair - Medium (build-able)
Shade: Probably around Mac NC20-25
Oil control: So-so (not accurate as I'm using Egyptian Magic cream as moisturiser which is kinda oily)

This girl did a really good write up on her 2 cents on the bb cream, it was her review that sealed the deal and I ended up buying Su Mei's. JunyCherry

The colour comes out a little dull and dark but blends well into skin tone.
The texture is easy to spread (not sure if it's because of my moisturiser) and easy to blend. Finally something that can compare to Dr.Jart+ in terms of coverage and smooth texture that doesn't give me pimples. Yay!

Ta daaa, fancy cover but no box T.T

Me likey! Me also got the Clio Duo Eyeshadow in white from Su Mei. She was selling them for just RM25 each so after drooling and sleeping on it for a day, I bowed to temptation and got one.

Gold on the top and shimmery white on the bottom; Swatch

The gold is very pigmented but the white isn't so. She did warned me that either using a sponge tip applicator or finger would be best to pick up the colours. I do not own any sponge tip applicator so I ended using my hands, Using my usual Elianto blending brush wasn't very useful. The colour turns out not very pigmented on my lids. It's very sheer and it was okay for me to wear it to work without blinding people with my eyelids.

Since I had like close to 3 inches of roots showing, it was time for dye my hair again. The last time was a disaster so fingers and toes crossed for this one. I opted for something darker this time. Beauteen's Caramel Chocolat. YUM! I bought this some time ago while Watsons were still having a sale, so I got this box for a mere RM19.



Guess the time for me to colour my hair to something darker after my hairdresser told me that the 'in' colour is Dark Chocolate right now also I remembered JH mentioned he liked darker haired colour. *sigh* The things I would do for him.

The sad part was that due to the online shopping and unexpected Egyptian Magic cream, I couldn't afford to get my hair coloured and cut by my usual hairdresser. I really got my priority wrong this time about, I admit. No nagging allowed please T.T



My hair has grown so long and because of a 'certain' incident at the hairdresser the last time, I got a bad haircut. Or shall I say, unsatisfying cut. Blargh!



My Chinese New Year gift from Pinky Doodle Doo, ain't she the sweetest? She spotted the shoes and since they didn't have them in her size, she ended up buying them for me. AHH! I lub youuuuuu~



Just an ending pic to make everyone cringe. NYahahahahaha! The cracked nail that bled. I tried cutting it the best I could but for now, I'll have to go through the new year with this ugly looking nail.

What am I to do with it?!?!?!?!

Ooh your poor nail :|!


hahahah blinding people with your eyelids. That would be cool ^_^! So sorry too hear that you lost the lipbalm :(. I know what you mean with gifts from people you love and who you care about! It's really upsetting if you lose them! Therefore I'm extra careful when I were your earrings! Oh side story: I wore your eyeshadow (a couple times already, remember I don't use eye shadow every day hehe. BUT the color is soo pretty! I love it! I made a tropical look of some sort and it was really cool!

Elyn's haircut is indeed lovely! It suits her perfectly ^_^!

Well I'm going to grab something to eat now!

Take care and big big hugs!!
