Sleek Palette : Bad Girl

Thu, 04/07/2011 - 3:26PM by Runwaytoparis 0 Comments -

Ng Li (under-twenty20) posted on her facebook claiming that she will be bring in Sleek Bad Girl Palette so immediately i told her to reserved one for me. And here's the much awaited palette!

Before opening the pallete, i saw sprinkle of white power around the palette casing and i knew something unpleasant should have happened with the colours inside. Tadahhhh....Ok, it's not a big deal for me since i've managed to put the white eyeshadow in place. I can actually lift the whole shadow up!

Perfect combo for smokey eyes but im bad at doing smokey eyes! I guess the technique im using is wrong or it just don't goes well with me?

Lets swatch it!

Amazing colours!!!

I'm having too much of sleek already! Next will be something from the Avoir la Peche Collection :)

Henna Day 5

Wed, 04/06/2011 - 6:07PM by Runwaytoparis 0 Comments -

Finally it's my day five! Another five more classes too go! This time i feel like i did a terrible job compared to my previous design. Maybe because the designs don't look right or because i didn't have my breakfast, lunch and dinner? I did the henna at about 7.30pm with an empty stomach! I dont have a choice, i went to Jurong to gave tuition and i had to rush straight for the Henna class.

So what do ya think?

I'm looking for volunteer for henna designs. Anyone interested? It's free :)

Tue, 04/05/2011 - 1:18AM by Runwaytoparis 0 Comments -

Right after giving tuition, i dropped by Jurong Point since i need to get some stuffs at the Popular Bookstore. I was walking along the basement 1 and saw this pushcart selling nail polishes and accessories. The sales lady did a test colour on my thumb nail and i was like how nice is this purple polish. That's when i had decided that i should get few items from this little place.

My favourite!  3 bottles for $12.00

3 Nail stickers at 3 for $5.00

I wanted to purchase one nail designs sticker which cost $2.00 until the sales lady said take 3 for $5.00 :))

Hello!!! It's been days and here i am back to onsugar! I've been very busy giving tutions and working at night.Tiring but having fun at the same time :)

This time i'm back with 3 makeup from SLEEK :)

The packaging reminds me of good quality chocolates sold in so call chocolate boutique.

Swatches as below :)

I got myself the Primer Palette, Rose Gold Blush and Crème To Powder Foundation Tester Kit in Light Medium.

Primer Palette

This is my favourite among all and definitely help to define the colours when applying the eyeshadows.

Crème To Powder Foundation Tester Kit in Light Medium :  Good for medium coverage and light weight as well. Smooth application.

**WITHOUT FLASH**

Pardon my hand.There's a small henna detail design which was done during my henna clases.

Elf hauls

Thu, 03/24/2011 - 1:04AM by Runwaytoparis 0 Comments -

I wanna say someting before continue-ing my entry on makeup. Over the past 1 month plus, i am having 8 follower. I know the number may seems small but hey it a great accomplishment for me! I'm planning to do a giftaway when i hit 10 follower! So lets celebrate soon!

+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+

Joined an elf spree from smoochiezz lj about a month ago and collected the items from their showroom last week. Here are what i got from the spree!

<br>

I was feeling excited when opening the package. It's like a goodie bag filled with so many goodies. So what did i purchase?

-e.l.f. Essential Zit Zapper

-Duo Eye Shadow Cream (Sugar Cookie)

-Shimmer Palette

-Compact (Custom Face)

-Shy, Glow, Coy, Flushed & Bronzed (Custom Face)

Swatches as below :)

Duo Eye Shadow Cream (Sugar Cookie) : It's creamy however colour not showing when swatching. Best used as eye shadow base and not by itself. Doesn't crease the eyelid but like what the website says, i dont see how this product by itself with the combination of two colours is able to create dramatic effect.

Shimmer Palette : Very creamy and all the colours turned out to be silverish looking. Either lighter or darker in tone. Smooth when application and dont feel any weight or anything when applied on the face.

e.l.f. Essential Zit Zapper : This special clear formula helps to fight and prevent acne, reduce redness and swelling, minimize pore size and clear skin. Well, i tried this product for a week now and it does reduce a little of the redness and swelling. Read various reviews online and i guess it works for some while some don't.

Shy, Glow, Coy, Flushed & Bronzed (Custom Face) : The colour pay off quite well to my surprise. And i can even use them as eyeshadow. I'm gonna use Bronzed as an eyeshadow. Love all the five colours!

Compact (Custom Face) : I bought the empty compact as well for the blushes mention above. I had fun playing around and choosing which colour goes where and i wouldn't be including "Bronzed" in it since i'm gonna use it as an eyeshadow. Labelled the compact. Gonna get myself a proper label stickers soon.

I regret not getting their Daily Brush Cleaner. Gonna purchase it soon. While dropping by their showroom for collecting the items, i purchase another item from elf again.

e.l.f. Essentials Beauty Encyclopedia Eye Editions


I love every single colours from this palette.Good for everyday usage to work and school. Some are matte while the rest are shimmer. Definitely love the silver shades!

+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+

Few days back order this online from Sarah Beevi through facebook.

Cake pops, my favourite!! Got 12 of the pops and within 15 mins, everything is gone and love was licking the left over chocolates on his fingers.

Henna day 4

Fri, 03/18/2011 - 6:25PM by Runwaytoparis 0 Comments -

Two days back went for another henna class. Designs are getting harder and i completed 2 hands for almost 2 hrs and 30 mins. This time it's an adult hands who is in her late 20s. She will be having a marriage function this Saturday thus it explain the complicated design.

Had backbone pain after the henna class. I bend too much and both my hands are messy with little dots and small desings.Totally unsightly but it's ok cause i'm having fun doing this and i enjoying myself. Next lesson will be next week and am looking forward for it . Anyone want to volunteer to be my model? Do let me know if you're willing to travel all the way to Tanah Merah Mrt and designs are for free.

Etude House

Wed, 03/16/2011 - 3:32AM by Runwaytoparis 0 Comments -

I was going to work and i decided to stop by Lot One before taking the train. To my surprise they have Etude House outlet there. 3 months of not stepping there or going out is terrible. Felt so excited when i'm out of my walking cast. I'm free to walk like normal with no stares. I was in a hurry so i decided to skip their make up section and went straight to the nail polish section.

Here are what i got for $2.50 each.

Swatches of the colours

And what's on my last finger nail?

It's a cheap version of a black crackle nail polish that i found at ebay. Look more like a lightning bolt.

Gonna get more colours soon.

Henna Day Three

Wed, 03/16/2011 - 3:05AM by Runwaytoparis 0 Comments -

I'm suppose to do this last week but busy celebrating birthdays and working. I dragged Dearest Sandy along last thursday for another henna lesson. This time the designs given are a little tedious compared to the previous lesson.Here's the image. I took 1 hr 15 mins to complete one hand only. Omg =.=

Gotta speed up during the next lesson and that will be later afternoon. Thanks sweetheart for willing me to do the damage at your hand!

Random Buys

Sun, 03/13/2011 - 12:56AM by Runwaytoparis 0 Comments -

Hi hi! I'm so lazy to wake up! The rain says go back to bed but i told the rain that i got henna class later. My morning begins in the afternoon. Ok back to the post, below are my random purchase for the month of Feb. I know right, but i was sick and working for the past few days so that explain the lack of updates.

What did i bought?

1) Icy Turquoise Eye Shadow (not sure what brand it is from )

2) Dream Mousse Shadow from Maybelline ( Mint Dream 30 )

3) Elf All Cover Stick ( Persimmon ) 

4) Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-on Eye Pencil (Electricv)

5) Nyx Lipstick ( Paris )

Swatches below.

Have been eyeing for the Urban decay 24/7 eye pencil in various colour and "electric" is my first item from Urban Decay so imagine how happy i am now. The colour really lasted me the whole day however after applying, i'm having a hard time blending it with another colour.

I'm so in love with the colour. But sadly Nyx Lipstick can only last up till 4 hrs the most.

Xoxo, Runwaytoparis :)
