Haul | Christmas Holiday 2013 Collection


Perfect neutral palette. It does not have a lot of shades which somehow a newbie like me prefer since I can't match colours in the bigger palette. *wails* As much as I love bigger palettes, it hardly get any used from me. They are really pretty to look at especially the Urban Decay naked palettes. (They have the third one out already and I haven't buy any yet!). Anyway, the pigmentation is great too. From what I read, Chanel eyeshadow is not as good as the Dior ones (I need to get their neutral quads soon!) but this is a better version now.


While I was looking for reviews for Charming eyeshadow palette, I saw this blush and thought it was a perfect combination. Although I'm a little disappointed with the blush when I have it as it actually has gold shimmer in it. It's good that you don't need to use a highlighter anymore, but the fine shimmer goes everywhere on your face when you applying it. That's my only gripe about this blush, the colour and pigmentation is pretty nonetheless.


I love this palette. As the name suggest, it is very portable and will be very handy for travel. At first, I wanted to get the NARS version of this from the Guy Bourdoin collection. However, packaging wise and price, I chose LM palette instead. I super love the blush and bronzer in this palette, looks natural. Even though this peachy pink blush has gold shimmer in it but it does not translate onto my cheeks like the Chanel one. I can't say much on the bronzer as I'm not really fond of using it. Oh and the lip gloss, it's a little bit sticky when freshly applied.


I just got this recently and have not use them. This collection includes Pink Opal, Amethyst (LOVE THIS!!!), Rose Gold and Sugar Frost. Out of the four shades, I love Amethyst the most as it's almost similar to Maybelline Bad to the Bronze. The others are lighter and a little frosty for my liking but I think I would be nice as a inner corner highlighter. When I swatched the shades, it lasts long although after 6th hour mark, the colour started to fade a little. I can't wait to use this! And I'm definitely buying more of the darker colour ones. ;) Oh! This one is definitely better than NYX, as they always crease on me even with eye primer on. *annoyed*


I love lipstick. Sheer ones though. I was actually torn between this and Pink in Paris (which I might buy next). This lipstick has a bubblegum smell and colour payoff is also great but, it accentuates my dry lips. This is very similar to my Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Boy. I just need to scrub my dry lips before I use these lipsticks - it's good that it reminds me to take care of my lips better but not so much when I'm in a hurry and this is the only lipstick I have in my bag. Lol!

As you can see, everything that I bought are nudes and neutrals. I mean, who can have enough nudes and neutrals in their collection right? I've seen bloggers posting Spring 2014 collection already, a lot of pinks I must say but nothing really caught my eyes just yet although the lipstick ranges are quite tempting actually! I think I have a thing for Winter collection, I'll just wait for that. For the time being, I'm going to make full use of these lovely babies I just got. :D

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. 😍

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…

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…
