Down with flu; Colourful Polka NOTD; Avon mousse eyeshadow

ARGH! My nose won't stop running and it annoys the *toot* outta me. I hate going to bed with my nose all stuffy and blocked! Hope everyone's feeling better.

A quickie update anyway. First up;


Ignore the bow

I need a haircut and fast! But first I re-coloured my hair. It's my usual Garnier Hibiscus coloured hair dye. It's really funny how JH has a tendency to point at any flower and call it a Hibiscus. XD
JH: Look, hibiscus! *points at roses*

Couldn't stand the faded copper colour. Was thinking that perhaps I should save some money by colouring my hair black again. I'm worried about it looking boring, aih decisions, indecisions.,,

Fresh Con's Perky Brown



Was initially a little doubtful on the colour. Before buying this, I saw some blog with a girl wearing this and it was so.. err.. noticeable? Wanted a natural looking brown and not something to make people shit their pants when they see me with my glow in the dark brown eyes. Luckily, it came out all right. Yay. I'm glad! Still loving the green better though. Heeee~

Avon mousse eyeshadow in Velvet Taupe




I saw my colleague's Avon catalogue and got all excited - for nothing. Sheesh, JH was sweet enough to drive me to town early in the morning, took a stroll around while waiting for the shop to open and finally when I did enter, there was almost no testers for anything. Not daring to buy any face powder without first testing it, I sat there staring at the sales girl wondering what to buy. I was too embarrassed to walk out without buying anything and I didn't wanted JH to feel as if we came for nothing so I picked something, anything. Was a little desperate and ended up with the mousse eye shadow in Velvet Taupe.

There was only 2 colours left in stock which was Silken Sand and Velvet Taupe. Silken Sand is golden brown-ish coloured and Velvet Taupe was gray-ish purple. I got mine for RM18 after discount (used my colleague's member card :D)



Went home to swatch it and ta-daaa... so sheer. Uh-oh. Used it on my eyelids. It's so smooth and glides like a dream. If this was a cake, it'll be all fluffy and buttery. Unfortunately, it took me 3 coats to even get the colour to show. Dream cake turning nightmare-ish. In a few hours time, it does the David Copperfield. It disappears.

I read online that some of the other colours shows up better while some are really sheer. Now I know why Avon was having a sale on this one and why there was stock left. For now, gonna try using it as a base and see how it goes. Wish me luck!

Colourful Polka NOTD



I personally don't like this NOTD all that much but strangely my colleagues and sister loves it. Odd. Maybe they were being polite but I highly doubt I'll re-attempt this.

Ps: I know the blog looks a little funny right now. bare with me. You wouldn't know how much hair I lost doing something as 'simple' as changing the damned background.
