Merry Christmas!

I just wanted to wish everyone "MERRY CHRISTMAS"!
I hope, everyone spends happy holidays! I'm really sad that I didn't manage to do another holiday look, for I'm back to hometown again for work during the whole Christmas holidays of more than two weeks... argh! Thus, I'll be lacking in time to blog, so please bear with me, my dear readers and friends!

Oh, by the way I'm thinking of holding my second blog giveaway to thank you for your support. Aren't you already excited about it? Hehe... Hope to be back as soon as possible! Love you all!

Stay pretty!

Subtle Holiday Look: Bronze Metallic Eyes + Moto Jewelry and DSK Jewelry

Today, I tried to do a holiday look with the Bobbi Brown Chrome Eyeshadow in 03 Pewter. Well, it didn't turn out very festive. Yet, I should mention that it's a lot darker in real life than in the photos (like most of the time with my photos... sigh!). So, I'd say it's more of a subtle holiday look, hehe...


Here are the steps to this look!

STEP 1
- Jill Stuart Jelly Eye Color N 02 gold light allover the top lid


STEP 2

- apply Bobbi Brown Chrome Eyeshadow 03 Pewter from the lashline upwards, following the shape of your eyes, also on 1/2 of the outer lower lashline


STEP 3
- line the upper lid with MAC Fluidline Blitz & Glitz thickly and slightly wing it out at the outer corner

STEP 4
- line the lower lashline with Lunasol Contrasting W Eyeliner 02 (the glittery side)


STEP 5
- apply a black eyeshadow (I used the black color of the Givenchy Prisme Again 44 Precious Shimmer) on top of the liner of the upper lashline, starting from the outer corner and smudge it about half way in
- brighten up the inner corner of the eyes with a golden shimmery eyeshadow (I used the glittery golden color of the Lunasol Lighting for Eyes ~ 05 Khaki)


STEP 6
- curl your lashes and apply mascara (I used Shiseido Lasting Lift in black and topped it with Dior Diorshow Black Out Waterproof)


That's it. Simple as usual! (^ . ^)

Since the eyes didn't turn out really bold, I thought I'd combine it with a more vibrant lipstick. I chose Lunasol Full Glamour Lips S in 30 Medium Beige Rose and applied Chanel Lèvres Scintillance Glossimer in 121 Beige Guitar over it to make it more shimmery.


Did you spot me wearing Sarah's 'Christmas Corals' earrings and Steph's 'Small AB Swarovski Heart on 16" Thai Helix chain' necklace? I think they match quite pretty!

I love the Bobbi Brown Chrome Eye Sahdow a lot! Goes on super smooth like a cream shadow, and the shimmer to it is so fine, and there is absolutely no fall out. Hmm, somehow the eyeshadow doesn't look that bronze on me, don't you think so? But I still like the color a lot!


The following photos are taken with camera set to 'backlight on'. It makes the photos brighter, yet sadly washes out the colors even more.

I wanted to go for golden shimmery cheeks, so I used the MAC Powder Blush in Honour, which is described as a golden beige with gold shimmer, but it didn't show up enough. Hence, I added a bit of a bronzed rose color underneath the cheekbones with Clinique fresh bloom allover color in 02 posy, to define my cheeks a bit more.


A close-up of the earring! I super love the translucent glowy finish that the Guerlain Météorites Powder gives me. 03 Beige chic is the perfect shade for me, since I feel it does slightly tone down my pink undertone (and redness).


Oh, just in case you wonder, yes I have had my hair slightly trimmed again. Actually, there is not a huge difference, hehe... But since the hairdresser cut the tips too evenly last time, I went to have them frayed. Now they are slightly more fringed (and also a bit shorter) than before. I start wondering, if I will ever be able to grow my hair out successfully?


Ok, enough cam-whoring, haha... I hope, you liked my subtle holiday look! I try to do another look next week! Have a great weekend everyone!

My Secret Santa package + DSK Triple Heart Necklaces

How was your weekend, everyone? Well, mine was a really stressful one, but that's nothing new to me at all (working at a Chinese restaurant, even if it's at the bf's restaurant is always always stressful, sigh!). So yeah, ended up with muscle and joint pain. (; _ ;) Ahh... I'm in need of a relaxing bath and some more sleep! Thank god, the weekend is over, haha...

But my Secret Santa package (I joined the Secret Santa game that Kay from Bihada Diaries arranged), which arrived in my mailbox totally cheered me up today! My Secret Santa was Sarah from Moto Jewelry and Hello, 'moto! Now let me show you what she bombed me with!

Oops, by the way, am I allowed to open this package that soon at all, or is it supposed to be opened not until Christmas? I haven't joined a Secret Santa game before, so I'm not too sure about the rules. Please excuse me, if I violated anything!


Wow... all these gorgeous goodies came in the small package! Sarah, thank you so much! I love everything!

First thing, I'm gonna present to you is this gorgeous pair of earring! You can purchase Sarah's hand-crafted pieces at motojewelry.blogspot.com. I love the design and the color so much! The name of this pair is 'Christmas Corals' (I've just found that out at Sarah's jewelry blog, hehe...).


Can't wait to wear it! ♥


PAUL & JOE Eye Gloss N ~ 04 Halo


She also looked up my wishlist on the sidebar, and got me the P&J eyegloss in 04 Halo. Too bad, I already have this color! I'm such a dumbass, since I totally neglected to update my wishlist, argh!

GIVENCHY Gloss Interdit ~ 04 Rose Taboo


This is a mini version of the lipgloss. Isn't the color pretty? It is very shiny, has a bit of shimmer to it, and feels super creamy and smooth on the lips. Of course, I couldn't wait to try it out! I never tried Givenchy's lipglosses before, but I'm totally pleased with the color and quality!


Turns out to be a light berry color on my lips. Super shiny and smooth, not? It actually looks much darker in the tube as applied, yet a bit darker in real life than in the photo. I ike the semi-opaque finish a lot.

I hope the Secret Santa package that I sent out last Thursday (10th of December) will still arrive in time!

Now, onto the two DSK necklaces I purchased a while ago, which arrived last Friday! You can purchase DSK jewelry at dskjewelry.blogspot.com.


DSK Triple Hearts Violet, Light PH, Moonlight on 16" heart chain


I super adore the cute heart chain. It is so sparkly in real life - what a pity, the camera isn't able to capture!

DSK Triple Hearts AB, Violet, Jonquil on 16" heart chain


While the first necklace is more elegant, I find this one more girly. I intend to make this a Christmas gift to my little sister. And which one do you like better? (^- ^)

Ok, have to take a relaxing bath now, ladies! Will try to come up with a FOTD post this week!

Stay pretty!
Stay Ohh... pretty!

Haul December 9th : Chanel, Guerlain, Bobbi Brown

I spoiled myself with some goodies yesterday (as kind of a "pre-Christmas present" to myself, haha...), after leaving the super draining (and drowsy) class that lasted from 10:30 am to 17:00 pm.



CHANEL Dissolvant Doux Nail Colour Remover


This has been strongly recommended by the SA (by the way, she is Taiwanese as well). According to her it is the best nail polish ever, for it is super gentle to the nails and cuticles, yet effortlessly removes any nail polish. She also stressed that in contrast to drugstore nail polish removers, this bottle will last quite a time, since a little goes a long way.

She let me test it at the counter. It really took off the polish super efficiently, and it doesn't have the typical stinging scent of a nail polish remover at all. I feel, it has a soft powdery scent to it. Really like that, haha...


GUERLAIN Météorites Powder For Face ~ 03 Beige Chic


I had the Météorites in 01 Mythic, but swapped it to Jamilla, cause it made me look a bit too pinkish, since I'm concerned with redness in places. Now, I finally got my hands on Beige Chic! I'm pretty sure this is the perfect shade for me.


GUERLAIN Lip Pencil ~ 00 Cupidon



Bought this to line my lips, when I wear bright lipglosses, since my lip contour is not very prominent.


BOBBI BROWN Chrome Eye Shadow ~ 03 Pewter (for more information go to Bobbi Brown's official website here!)


This is a limited edition item from the Bobbi Brown Holiday 2009 Chrome Collection. There are two other shades available - Gold "a gold metallic" and Silver "a silver metallic", but Pewter is just the most outstanding color to me. Described as "a cool bronze metallic" at the Bobbi Brown website. It's just such a versatile neutral metallic eyeshadow, isn't it? I also really like the packaging!


I first swatched it on the back of my hands at the counter, and I thought it was a really pretty shade. But when I dabbed a bit onto my lids, it just wowed me!


It has a somewhat creamy texture, that goes on super smoothly. The color payoff is great too, but you can totally build up the intensity! I've been told by the SA that it can also be used with a damp brush, if I want it even more pigmented.

I'm looking forward to using all the stuff, and doing a look! Argh, it's nearly weekend again... you know that I'm destined to work every weekend, not? Well, I'm kind used to it already, but it's still so very annoying. (, _ ,) Anyways, I wish you all a great weekend ahead!

Oh, and I've actually reached 500 followers today! Thanks everyone for your support! I really really appreciate it!

Stay pretty!
Stay Ohh... pretty!

Chanel Le Vernis 367 Trapèze + DSK Jewelry

Hello everyone! I'm so sorry again for the lack of posts! My schedule is quite fully loaded lately...

Last Friday, I received the Chanel Le Vernis 367 Trapèze nail polish - it's a LE item from the Chanel Holiday 2009 Collection. Catherine helped me to get this, since Austria doesn't have the whole collection. How lame! It actually came all the way from the US to me, hehe... Thank you, Catherine! I love it so much!

CHANEL Le Vernis ~ 367 Trapèze


I would describe it as a light pearly taupe color with a hint of gold. This is how it looks with two coats. The picture doesn't do justice to the nail polish. Believe me, it looks so much better in real life than in the photo! Argh, and my cuticles are still so dry.



Oh, and I totally forgot to show you the latest DSK necklace, that I got two weeks ago! Now, here it is!

DSK Small AB Swarovski Heart on 16" Thai Helix chain


Isn't this necklace just cute? Now, I'm still awaiting two Triple Heart necklaces in the mail... can't wait to receive the package!

Hopefully, I'm able to update again this week! Have a great week ahead everyone!

Stay pretty!
Stay Ohh... pretty!
