Haul July 28th : SUQQU and MAC

I received a package from the UK yesterday! So, what did I get? Two SUQQU Blend Cheeks, the MAC 226 Brush and the MAC Mineralize Blush in Handfinish. Jamilla helped me out (again) to get my hands on these goodies. Thank you, Jamilla! I should remunerate her for being my personal online shopper, haha... I count myself so lucky!


I got seduced by Fuz to get the SUQQU blushes, because of her heavy raves, hehe... now, I can't stop being in love with them, 'cause she is so right. The SUQQU Blend Cheeks are such amazing blushes. The color, the texture, the subtle shimmer, the sheer color payoff - everything is just perfect to me. The Blend Cheeks creates the prettiest natural flush on my cheeks ever.

SUQQU Blend Cheeks 05 Kasanebeni


On the left it's a pale yellowish highlighter color, on the left it's a smooth tan color, that is perfect to be used for contouring. It looks dark in the pan, but it very natural and not muddy at all when applied.

Swatch: I applied two layers, otherwise you probably won't really be able to see the color, haha...


Actually, I wanted 03 Shanarimomo which is a lovely bright pink (yes, I saw it on Fuz' blog, haha...), but it was not available at Selfridges, so Jamilla picked up this color instead. Thanks to Jamilla's great taste, I own the prettiest peachy pink blush now, hehe... I LOVE it!


SUQQU Blend Cheeks 04 Yanwaricha


On the left it's a pale yellowish highlighter color, on the left it's a smooth tan color, that is perfect to be used for contouring. It looks dark in the pan, but it very natural and not muddy at all when applied.

With flash


Swatch: I also applied two layers here to make the colors visible in the picture



MAC Mineralize Blush Hand-finish (Colour Craft Collection)


Swatch: a bright pink color with lots of golden shimmer


It reminds me of Dainty (a Mineralize Blush as well), but Hand-finish is a bit more pink-ier and more shimmery, whereas Dainty is more of a rosy pink color with a subtle glow to it.

That's it. I hope you enjoyed this post. I promise to come up with looks using these goodies as soon as possible! ;)

Tagged by C. and WinWin : 10 Honest Things About Me

Happy Sunday everyone! I had day-off yesterday (and today as well, yay!), but I didn't manage to do a FOTD, since I was plagued by a bad migraine. I'm so sorry! I was really really looking forward to putting on makeup again using all my new stuff that I got recently. Argh, I hate migraine!

So, today I'm going to reveal 10 random things about me, hehe... Thank you C. and WinWin for tagging me! Uhmm... that's actually not that easy, haha. Don't really know, where to start, but anyways here we go!

1. I'm the eldest daughter. I have two sisters and one brother - he is the pet of the family, and oh so spoilt by the parents. Because he is a boy! I think, that's the case in many traditional Chiense families, hm?

2. My boyfriend and I, we know each other since we are babies, but became a couple not until I were 20 (he was 21 that time). Honestly, I already had a crush on him, when I was a child, haha... *turning pink*

3. I'm such a foodie! I love yummy food... and ice cream! That's why I can never hold out diets.

4.I used to have really impure skin when I was a teenager. My very first cosmetics that my dad got me was a clarifying mask by Lancome (I was 15 I think), and I didn't have any clue, how to use it and all, haha...

5. I don't have any pets, and I'm afraid of many animals... especially of insects and dogs. Must be a phobia. :/

6. I'm such a bludger when it comes to doing sports. Man, I really have to motivate myself - my body badly needs some sports!

7. I can't stand untidiness and dirt in the house - simply makes me feel so very uncomfortable.

8. I'm the shortest out of my two younger sisters (and brother of course - he is 183 cm I think). Yes, I'm only 164 cm. Sigh!

9. I have a weakness for cute cosmetic pouches, for cute stickers, for cute mugs, for cute notepads,... in short, for everything cute in general I think, haha...

10. I absolutely dislike bearish, insincere, arrogant and snobbish people who look down on others.

Puhh... that's it! I hope, you enjoyed reading. This time, I'm going to tag everyone who wants to do this.

Now, I'm going to put some makeup on, hehe... maybe I'll come up again with a FOTD today? I hope, it will be still bright enough, when I finished my face, cause it's a cloudy day over here. :[

R E V I E W : Beautymaker Love Pu Pu Cheek

I got my two lovely Love Pu Pu Cheek blushes last week, but totally forgot to show you, hehe... I got it from Beautyeshop (thanks, Jamilla!) Actually, I ordered four of them (two in pink and two in orange), because my sister also fell in love with them, when she saw the picture of it on the website. So, I got her both as well!

The packaging AND the name are soooo cute... Love Pu Pu Cheek - the cutest blush ever!



It comes in a little jar with a little ribbon puff in it. I prefer applying it with my MAC 165 brush.

Both colors look kinda scary in the jar, hm? They are both quite pigmented, but the soft and silky texture is very blendable, so you need not worry to end up with clown cheeks at all. Apply it with a light hand, and natural cheeks are ensured!


I can't wear warm and too orange colors on my cheeks, but this color is great. It doesn't look too orange on my fair skintone at all. I'm so glad, I got my hands on it. If you are also very fair like me, and looking for an orange blush that still looks natural, you must grab this! Very flattering for fair Asian skintones!

I haven't used the pink one yet, so I can't tell, how I like it. I hope, it doesn't accentuate my redness even more. Of course, I'll let you know, as soon as I have used it. Also be sure, I'll use them in some coming FOTDs! ;)

That's it, ladies. Have to have a catnap now! ZzzzzZz...
