Birthday Haul 2014 Part 1 - Sephora Malaysia and Laura Mercier.

Hi lovelies!

My birthday was a couple of weeks ago, which just happened to coincide with a Sephora Malaysia 20% off sale. As a result, I decided to pop in and stock up on some staples, as well as spend a little (okay, most) of my birthday money. It worked pretty well as I was pleasantly surprised to see some of the Christmas sets available at Sephora Malaysia, and as I could actually swatch the products, it made it a lot easier to decide if I should purchase or not. Let's take a look at what I purchased, shall we?

First up, here's everything that I purchased in one flatlay photo!

Birthday Haul Part 1 - Sephora Malaysia and Laura Mercier.

Top row: Laura Mercier Mini Caviar Stick Eye Colour Collection and Ciate London Haute House Collection (Rich Ink Formula).

Hourglass Limited Edition Ambient Blush Wardrobe Review + Swatches.

Hi lovelies!

Remember all the hype about the Hourglass Ambient Powder Wardrobe? Hourglass have done it again by creating a limited edition Ambient Blush Wardrobe! If you're a beauty fanatic, chances are you'd have seen this baby popping up everywhere on social media, as the hype has been phenomenal! As with the Powder Wardrobe, you get two shades from their regular range (Luminous Flush and Mood Exposure), as well as a limited edition shade (Incandescent Electra) that's exclusive to this palette. I'd always wanted to try the Ambient blushes, so I really jumped at the chance to pick up a palette with three shades included. While it's true that the pans in palettes are smaller than the full sized ones, it's seldom that I hit pan on a full sized product so I'm always in favour of palettes as you get more shades to add to your collection.

Klara Cosmetics Shimmer Eyeshadow Rose Gold Collection and Kiss Proof lipstick in Lilac Lover Review + Swatches.

Hi lovelies!

I've got some pretty new things to share with you today, and that's a lovely little goodie box that arrived a few weeks ago from Klara Cosmetics! In case you aren't familiar with Klara Cosmetics, they're an amazing Australian company which make gorgeous eyeshadows and liquid lipsticks.

I've got a mini Kiss Proof lippy from them which I absolutely adore, so I couldn't help but do a little jig of excitement when this stylish black box arrived. Let's take a look inside, shall we?


There were four beautiful single shadows from the shimmer shadow Rose Gold collection, and a mini matte Kiss Proof in #12 - Lilac Lover! As the name infers, the shadows in the rose gold collection have a slight duochrome effect, with the base colour being quite deep and a slight rose gold sheen on the surface. Now, I'm an avid lover of anything rose gold, so I was really happy to see this collection!

The four shadows are described as follows:

Rose Gold Azure - shimmery azure blue with slight gold tones
Rose Gold Amethyst - shimmery purple with golden tones
Rose Gold Jungle - shimmery deep green with golden tones
Rose Gold Nude - satin nude with pretty gold tones

Halloween Gory Blood Splattered Nails!

Hi lovelies!

Here are a few photos of the Blood Splattered nails I'm wearing for Halloween! I used stamping for these, using my Bundle Monster plate in BM416, over white polish. I mixed in a little black Konad polish with the red Konad polish for added definition.

I purposely stamped as messily as possible, and left them looking bloody in my Halloween Zombie Doll post, but I've cleaned them up in the photos below.

Halloween Zombie Doll Makeup Look and How-To!

Hi lovelies,

Happy Halloween! If you are a long time reader, you'll know how much I love Halloween! There's a lot of fun to be hard getting into the spirit of it. I also adore watching the little kids get all dressed up for Trick or Treating.

Unfortunately, I don't have much of my makeup stash with me here in Malaysia, so I was really restricted with what I could come up with. As a result, I tried getting creative with some simple makeup (heavy contouring, pink and black eyeshadow and a liquid liner). Big thanks to my friend Kris for helping me name this look, which she coined 'Zombie Doll'!

Before I go any further, I will apologise for the terrible quality of the photos...The lighting in my bedroom here is terribly yellow in photos, and I also didn't have my camera with me so I had to make do with using the camera on my iPhone. I was kicking myself for not waiting to do this look in the daytime, but somehow, inspiration only strikes at night for me! I managed to take close up photos of my nails in daylight, so they turned out much better than the makeup photos I took last night. Check out my Halloween nails post here.
