I might do some looks showing how I use this palette later on and comment on whether my love for "Orgasm" has remained unchanged or have I fallen in love with another colour in this palette. Who knows it might be the plum shade. Follow me and stay tuned.
Also, I just received my SASA order today but haven't gotten around to taking photos. I will make a post as soon as I can. Maybe tonight if I have time =)

Enjoyed a scrumptious brekky with Dan today at Di Stefano Coffee Warehouse Cafe and Deli. I ordered the Eggs Benedict with Bacon. The bacon was crispy as I like it and the eggs were poached near to perfection. This plate stood no chance with me and was devoured with no hesitation. Mmm ...

I also included swatches above comparing it to my another felt liner which is by far the blackest one I own (Illamasqua Precision Ink). The top one is the YSL and the one below is the Illamasqua eyeliner.
Whilst I feel the YSL liner is not as intensely black as the Illasmasqua one I DO LOVE the fact that it dries matte and doesn't flake. The matte finish makes it different and definitely gives a more softer but somehow bolder look. It still is very black but not the blackest black I've come across. I am so happy with this purchase. I swatched it on my hand several weeks back and was impressed that it did smudge but was removed easily as it was to apply. I'd definitely recommend this to anyone who's looking for an easy to apply matte black liquid liner that has staying power.

I have not seen any difference with using the eye cream but so far its kept my eyes hydrated. I have yet to try the day cream or night cream since I'm still trying to banish my dark spots from acne scaring and sun damage with my SK-II whitening products, so I cannot give my thought on these just yet. The Genifique is working very well in conjunction with my current skincare regimen.

Wow! That looks like a lot of products but it doesn't take that long or much effort. The colours are quite neutral so you don't have to be as precise I guess. It takes me around 15 mins to achieve this look.

The top layer of the powder is quite sparkly and glittery initially but once I managed to sweep it off, what was underneath was a finely milled highlighting powder that was not shimmery at all but rather leaves a more luminous finish.

Rouge Allure Lipstick in Enivree
I was advised by the makeup artist that these brushes are not machine manufactured and are made the same way as the full sized brushes only with a shorter handle.
As I mentioned, in the brush set you get 6 mini sized brushes:
- Angled powder/blush brush
- Foundation brush
- Eyeshadow brush
- Smudge/pencil brush
- Eyebrow brush
- Lip brush
Overall the quality of these brushes are definitely of higher grade than the MAC equivalent that being the short editions (SE). However, I only find them useful as touch up brushes as the quality is not exactly the best. I'm trying to get my hands on the Sigma brushes but haven't yet justified a reason to buy more brushes! To be honest I purchased the Chanel brush set because I needed a travel powder brush and was looking to purchase the larger version alone but the SA convinced me to purchase the set plus I loved the cosmetic bag it came in. What a sucker I am for all things Chanel!
I might post a FOTD using the Chanel products I purchased if I have time. Exams are creeping up on me once again...

It was the last piece in the store and he didn't want to wait so we got it. He knew I wanted one because I'm saving up for a Chanel Classic Flap in medium/large and my wallet would take up most of the limited space inside it. I would've got a smaller wallet but it didn't make sense as I have a fully functional wallet and I love it to death. It fits everything you could possibly need in your wallet without any bulging.. The poch-clef is the perfect size to use with any of my smaller bags as it holds my essentials. It can fit my driver's license, student ID, bank card, credit cards, notes and small change. The key holder/hook doubles as a hook to attach to the inside of any Louis Vuitton (attach to the D-hook).
Onto photos ...

I previously blogged about this BB cream in my beauty haul post in April. So, I've been using this BB Cream for 2 months now and I am quite confident that I can give a complete review of it since I've had a good feel of its "benefits" or whatnot.
I have tried their other Signature M BB Cream and THAT I did not like whatsoever, so I was a bit hesistant at first to try another one from their range especially when I haven't seen many reviews on it. I went with my instincts and tried it for myself. Anyways, to the review.
How I use it?
After my skincare routine and primer if desired, I dispense a small amount (half pump) to my fingertips and applying on using a gentle tapping motion concentrating more on my areas of concern. To set the BB Cream with my Laura Mercier Mineral Powder.
I wrote up this post some time ago but just never got around to uploading and editing it. Plus, it is such a ritual for me to blog during exam time and uni just to de-stress and escape from the pages and pages of notes that sit infront of me.

The line as we left Westfields. Thankfully we didn't have to line up :)
I love the tagging system! It tells me what sizes the item is made in so I don't need to rummage through a rack to realize they don't make an AU6 or XS.
I also purchased a few other items that day. My Aunty and I were so bad convincing each other to buy everything we set our eyes on =P
Also, my recent purchases from ASOS which I have delayed to post =)
