February 2013 Favourites

I wanted to write this post yesterday but I had few errands to do in the afternoon and got lazy at night because playing with Baby Iqbal is so much fun! It's my favourite thing to do now since I've started working.

I have a small basket of makeup items I bring around the house in the morning. I can't do my makeup in our room because my baby is still sleeping so there's no light obviously. I either go to the toilet to do my makeup, my sister's room or my brother's room to apply my makeup. So there are some makeup items that have made a permanent resident in the basket. I have mentioned a couple of items in my January's favourites hence I'm going to write about the rest of them.

1. For base, I alternately use Skin79 Vip Gold BB cream and Max Factor Ageless Elixir Foundation. This is because they have lower SPF and both are moisturising (which is very important because of my air-conditioned working environment).

2. For eyes, everyday I would use Revlon Colorstay eyeliner in brown for upper lid and charcoal for lower lid. Why? Because it is easier to smudge my brown eyeliner with my cream eyeshadows. For eyeshadows, I would pick Essence (either Glammy Goes To or ) or NYX Jumbo in Yogurt. And for brows, I only use Essence brow gel and also eyeshadow base from Essence.

3. For face, I normally use Rimmel Stay Matte powder to set my make up and MAC powder foundation for touch up at noon before going back to work. I definitely have to blot before I put powder on my face. As for blush, I have been rotating them on a weekly basis and so far, I have use MAC Mineralised in Pet Me, Natural Collection in Pink Cloud and Rosey Cheeks (practically live in my makeup bag).

4. Lastly for lips, I have been liking MAC Syrup for almost everyday, occasionally Natural Collection in Rose bud (especially in the afternoon) and lately, NYX Round in Tea Rose. Not forgetting my lip balm from Maybelline Baby Lips in Berry before I wear my lipstick.

What are your favourites for the past months? I'm sorry I did not get the pictures for all the products I have mentioned above. Insya Allah will try to update it.

Now we know

Yesterday after work, I told Dear Husband that I want to go to Yayasan to look at Dr Ding's opening times. I could've called but I want to try our luck as well in case the clinic still opens.
When we arrived around 6pm, we went straight to the clinic and I took a picture of their opening times. And guess what? The clinic will be open at 7pm! I was excited and nervous at the same time.

We waited for almost an hour and had our ultrasound - witnessed by Dear husband and baby Iqbal. And we finally can confirm the gender for our baby! I'm so excited and happy but my EDD and baby's weight worrying me. I definitely need to eat more! :(

Let me introduce to you, Baby A. 😍

Review: Bio Essence Tanaka White Range

As I have mentioned before, Bio Essence Tanaka White range was recommended by my best friend who is currently using it. Since we have the same skin type, this range should works on me as well. I finally bought the starter kit from Hua Ho cost $8.35 which includes facial wash, toner, day and night cream, a sample of essence and a piece of sheet mask.

Our night cream has finished and we have stopped using this range, currently trying out laneige. So, after using Bio Essence Tanaka White range for 2.5 weeks, I can see that my skin have improved. My skin moisture level improved just after one week using it. I can see that my face is smoother and radiant. My dark spots lighten and blackheads become less visible. I like this range as it is simple to use, just cleanse, tone and moisturise. These are sufficient for someone who does not like to apply a lot of products on their face.

Gentle Cleansing foam. When I first started using this wash, it was too drying for my face. I didn't feel m…

Designer Bag Wish List

I have this list wandering in my mind for a while now and somehow it bothers me. Lol! Might as well do a post about it right? I don't think it differs a lot from my previous list though.

1. Chanel Classic Flap - medium, caviar, black with GHW This couldn't get anymore classic that the bag itself. Although I have been liking the Mini version of it more recently. With the price difference and the capacity, it seems like the mini one gets another point from me.

Also, I have been considering to get the WOC. I must say, getting a WOC is trickier. Other Designer brands have this too - I have been eyeing on the YSL one. I know Gucci and Dior have WOC too. Different price point but the capacity are almost the same for each. It's either to go with the Designer name or the price. What would you do?
Chanel WOC or YSL WOC?
2. Louis Vuitton Alma BB - preferably in navy or red
Yes yes, I know I already have one in the PM size which means that this purchase will only be justifiable if I sel…
