What’s in My Makeup Bag?

Sephora Haul with NARS Foreplay

Disclaimer: I did this haul online way BEFORE I started my Project Pan, but I just got it when I flew home yesterday! Anyways, words cannot describe how excited I was about getting the NARS Foreplay Cheek Palette in my hands! Continue reading

May Favourites!

How is it June already?! Time passes way, way, way too fast! It means I’m going to be going on my trip in a couple weeks! So exciting, yet I”m dreading the whole planning and packing process… which I will leave till last minute sadly. I don’t think I’ve ever done a post on monthly favourites, so I figure I should start it now! Continue reading

NARS + Essie + The Bay Haul

I went to Holt Renfrew today in hope of locating the Prada bags I have been lusting for… but with no luck. Holt Renfrew just does not carry what I want! They did not have the Balenciaga City Bag that I wanted, or the Marc by Marc Jacob wallet that I wanted… and now this. But all is not lost! I wandered to the NARS counter, and ended up purchasing two NARS products from their summer collection. They did not have the products out for display yet, but they did have the products in stock. (Sephora did not have the summer collection in stock as of today). I got the Never Say Never Velvet Matte Lip Pencil, and the Liberte Blush. I totally did not plan on getting these today (was going to wait till I head to the states), but Holt Renfrew is having a promotion where you get a gift card that’s worth 15% of your cosmetic purchase, and 25% of your apparel and accessory purchase. Their site says it’s from April 28-29. I also got a Valentino perfume sample when I saw walking around! Yay for perfume samples! Continue reading

NARS Blush in Dolce Vita Review/Swatch

This was the first NARS blush I bought, and this is what started the unhealthy, expensive lust over NARS blushes. I love NARS’ packaging (of any of their products), the quality of these blushes are phenomenal.

Dolce Vita is a dusty rose colour with subtle shimmer. According to NARS’ website, Dolce Vita is a matte dusty rose… why are there shimmer in mine? (For those of you that own this blush… does yours have shimmer too?)  Continue reading

NARS Blush in Torrid Review/Swatch

I took advantage of Sephora’s 15% off discount last week and picked up this blush during my haul with pearlessence last Thursday. NARS describes Torrid as a “warm coral with golden shimmer”. I think that’s the perfect description for the shade. It’s a perfect blush for spring/summer. If you are not a big fan of shimmer in your blush (like I am), the shimmer in this is actually rather subtle, especially when you compare it with the infamous Orgasm.  Continue reading

Sephora VIB + MAC + Essie + Drugstore Haul

Yes another haul post… but hey one needs to use that 15% off at Sephora while one can right? MAC came out with a few collections today, so it only makes sense if I go check it out. Essie… well the salon had 50% off a bunch of Essie polishes! And I wondered into a drugstore… and walked out with stuff, as usual. So here are all the stuff I got!

Wishlist Vol. 3

I was planning on posting this on leap year day… but decided that school is slightly more important… Guess I will have to wait 4 more years for another chance to post on Feb 29.

Anyhow, it’s wishlist time again! I haven’t been window/online browsing a lot last month so there aren’t thattttttt many things I want. I was very focused on deciding which Balenciaga City to get, and nope. Still no decision.

I have been mostly obsessed with shoes lately, particularly sandals. Spring is almost here! Both neutral and bright sandals are going strong this spring. Especially colour blocks!

From top left, clockwise:
Eyeko Skinny Brush Mascara
NARS Night Breed Nail Polish
Christian Louboutin Summerissima Crisscross Platform Sandal
Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque
Stella & Dot Artemis Cuff (How badass is this?!)
Ruthie Davis Horizon – Poppy Multi 

What are you wishing for this month?

Nail Polish Haul

So I went a little over the board with my nail polish purchases when I was in the States. I didn’t have a huge collection of polish so this haul has pretty much increased my collection by 50%. I got a variety of polishes and am so excited to try them on! I got most of these when there’s a deal on so I feel less guilty about it, but I think this will be my last haul for a while since I am trying to save money!
