Beauty Bought: Throughout the year, from United Kingdom

Assalamualaikum pretty ladies!

This would probably give me a reason to create a very long post because I've just hauled, I don't know, $150 worth of goodies and it's by far a lot for me to handle but don't worry, the purchases was made between September 2012 to May 2013, I've just received it now from my bestfriend of which I've abused her address for shipping some UK products I want to try to avoid hefty shipping fees. 

I thought I only made just so little purchases, but when she gave me all of my packages, I was pretty much overwhelmed and realized with regret of how much I really spend. But nevertheless, most of the stuff that I bought below, safe to say that I'm refraining myself from trying out each one as I might just give some of it away.

This is the whole purchases I've made throughout her time in the UK. It was so overwhelmingly a LOT! I'll go through the hauls by brands down below. 

Brand: Missha

My bestfriend went for a holiday in Korea, so I didn't want to miss the opportunity to actually ask her to buy me some of the stuffs that are too expensive here. She got me the Missha's Perfect Cover BB Cream for just $10 where as if I buy it in Brunei, the cheapest I could get is $35, so it's not such a bad deal. She bought one for herself too but it wasn't suitable for her sensitive skin, so she gave me her big 50ml BB Cream.

Also, the tints are $5 each and if I were to buy it in Brunei, it would cost me $26, so I'm saving up a lot of money! I really love these tints and my collection of these tints are complete! I have all four of them now! Yahoo!

Brand: It's Skin

I've heard good news about the serums, so I asked my bestfriend to buy two of which is more suitable to what I need, I'm currently using the green one though, which is suitable for excessive sebum secretion, I don't know if I'm glad to purchase it because as time goes on my skin has reverted into normal skin so I hardly have breakouts and excessive sebum secretion. But oh well, let's see how it goes.

Also, I don't think I need more lipbalms because I have so many that I still haven't opened, but I just can't help it, I love macarons and this is perfect for me! It smells like grapes too!

Brand: Sleek Makeup

I bought this when I still wanted to try Sleek Makeup, but I did try some of their palettes a few months ago and I was a little bit disappointed with the Au Naturel that I don't even want to buy more of it. So this is the last purchase I will make from Sleek Makeup. I hope.

Brand: W7

W7 is a brand that I'm very intrigue with as it produces makeup that are dupes of higher ends makeup such as Benefit and NYX. The Mega Matte Lip cream is actually similar with the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream. The packaging, the smell and I can tell by just applying once that the performance is pretty much the same. I wonder if they were manufactured in the same factory.

Africa blush is beautiful! I will post up a more detailed review on it soon!

Brand: Benefit

My first Benefit product, when I received this, I was afraid that it would be too dark on me as I chose the No.3 color, I am always confused about my skintone as sometimes it can lean on light-medium or just medium. But I'm currently testing this, so far, I am still impressed.

Brand: Maybelline

I know I can get Maybelline's stuff here in Brunei but that tint is not available in Brunei and I don't really want to buy a $20 mascara where I can get $10 mascara in UK, I don't mind waiting for these because I still have tons of cheap mascara that works well with my current need. I know Maybelline's mascaras are known to be dramatic, but I really love me defined lashes that is nice for an everyday look. So I might just use this for special events.

Brand: Sunkissed Cosmetic

I don't even know why I wanted to purchase this, it's not like I need MORE neutral palettes, but they were from and it was dirt cheap with free shipping, so I can't really say no to that. I haven't try this, I'm not sure if I want to keep this or just give it away.

Brand: Technic

A palette that seems so similar to Sleek palettes in terms of packaging and even size! I bought three of their palettes, but I gave one away to my beloved Bruneian blogger-bestfriend, Nisnis from Frugal or Perfection so you can follow her if you want to know about the other palette.

Brand: Body Collection

I am a palette hoarder, what more can I say! :P

Brand: Real Technique

It was mostly raved in the beauty blogging world, it won't hurt to buy something that I really need to try out their brushes.

Samples: It's Skin and L'oreal

Well, samples, I'm not sure when I'll be using these but I'll try to use the L'oreal CC cream samples as I'm very excited to use it.

So that was my haul from UK, it's a lot I know, I don't know if I'm allowed to buy more eyeshadow palettes now as I seem to own more that I can use. I will post the reviews on these stuff after I've finished reviewing other backlog posts that I can't seem to finish. LOL!

Skincare Review: Bioderma Micellar Solution

Assalamualaikum pretty ladies!

Back with another review, I have been swamped with work that I don't really have much time to spend writing up a few posts on my blog, I haven't even been able to make any extra posts that does not concern on reviews too, I'll make sure to do it sooner. Maybe, I'm still busy with my Final Year Project :)

Anyways, I've won this particular make-up remover from SprinkleRain's giveaway. I'm so glad to be able to try this out but I am so sad at the same time. Why? Because it is such an amazing make-up remover that does not give any oily film or dries your skin after removing all of your makeup.

It felt like you're just removing it with water but with such great effectiveness. At my first use of this product, my eyes did feel sore when it was in contact, but after a while, the discomfort is gone. Although a make-up hoarder, I hardly use or buy any waterproofed makeup so I won't be able to make sure if this works with waterproof makeups.

I really love this makeup remover but I hardly use it for daily basis but when I have a full-on makeup, I'd definitely use this to remove every bits of makeup. I'm not sure when I can buy this with a very affordable price, I know L'oreal has a micellar water product but I'm not sure if it's available here in Brunei. I wish Bioderma is easily bought in Brunei :( I'd definitely repurchase this everytime.

Make-up Review: Revlon Photoready Foundation in Medium Biege

Assalamualaikum pretty ladies!

A foundation review! I hardly buy foundation just because I think I have a lot of BB Creams and only just 4-5 foundation, I think. Well, now that I think of it, 4-5 foundations is a lot by any of the non-beauty blogger standard. LOL!

I bought the Photoready foundation after seeing a lot of reviews, well technically I was looking for the Colorstay foundation but there was none in Brunei, I checked most Guardians by the way to look for Colorstay foundations instead I found this. 

It has a low SPF which contributes to the name Photoready I guess. Higher SPF equals to higher white exposure to your face, so I usually don't really like to use this during the day because of the lower SPF. I'd usually don this when I have anything going on at night.

I really love this foundation for the fact that it really fits my skintone perfectly and brightens up my skin since my skin, in nature, is quite dull. It has a medium coverage that does not require me to use concealers. If I think the coverage is not up to what I expect, I'd usually put on another layer on the parts that needs covering.

The staying skill is quite impressive too, it usually fades around the 8th hour mark. I'd usually wear this out on night occasions or days I'm bothered to use foundations to school. I think I found a foundation worth repurchasing.

Beauty Bought: Peep My Toes!

Assalamualaikum pretty ladies!

Another procrastinated post, this is supposed to be posted up before Raya but it's already Zulhijjah! I went crazy with shoes as I seem to have hardly any in collection and I usually buy a pair or two each year and wear it out till it's unwearable and buy more.

So I decided to be a shopaholic for the first time, I went on and bought all these 3 pairs.

I realized that I went for the open-toed shoes, 2 of them wedges and a pair of heels. All of them were in conjuction with the Raya sale so all of them were discounted.

I bought this at DMK at Delima for $19.90, I think? I actually haven't worn this AT ALL! I am saving this up for something special though, I'm not sure yet of what the special something is, but I still haven't had a reason to wear this baby out yet.

Marie Clare from Bata store also at Delima near Teguh Raya department store, I can't remember what the price was as it was being paid for by my mommy and she bought two pairs of the same, the other for my sister. This was the only thing I wore throughout Raya.

I went to URS store at Times Square Mall, a shoe label called Vern caught my attention and I really love this casual wedges, I can basically use this for semi-formal events and also to school without being so overdressed. So I've been using this everyday, I think I should buy another set of shoes for casuall-type outfit.

Make-up Review: Essence Night Club Glamour to Go Eyeshadow Palette in 03 Dance Til Dawn

Assalamualaikum pretty ladies!

Another review for you girls, I'm trying my best to set up as much reviews as I can as I seem to have a lot of backlog. As you can see from the title, I now have more than enough eyeshadow palette. I even warrant myself a shopping ban from buying more eyeshadow palettes, but I just couldn't stop myself ;)

I actually did plan on wanting to but this particular palette as if I need more purples in my collection, so I was excited when Paloma actually brings out more new stuff to Brunei.

Like the last palette I've bought from Essence, the quality was the same. A little hard but the shadows does not have a lot of fall-out.  Although the colors needs a little work by adding an eye primer to have that pigmentation above. 

I really love this for a soft smokey look, especially the second shade on the second row, I really love to use it for the crease. I really like this palette as I actually can use it for day-to-day neutral look, even though it doesn't look like it can be used for a neutral look.

Make-up Review : Holika Holika Eyeshadow in PK104

Assalamualaikum pretty ladies!

Let's say that I am feeling a little bit guilty that I haven't updated any reviews on my blog, there's still a lot of products for me to review.

So I bought a nail polish remover from Holika Holika, I'm a noob when it comes to nailcare so I'm not sure of which brand that I'd like to buy from, so it came with free eyeshadow, there was a few choices but I decided to opt with a pink one because I was, at that time, wanted to look for a pink eyeshadow.

What I don't like about Korean eyeshadows are that they can sometime overwhelm you with tons of shimmer, I realize I never really use it because as you can see from the swatch, it's so shimmery that you can only see it as a highlight color with pink tones running through.

I think this is an old stock because although I can easily get the product on my finger or brush, I still find the texture a little hard. Though it is still easy to blend.

Skincare Review : Essence My Skin Intensively Caring [Normal to Dry]

Assalamualaikum pretty ladies!

Another short review coming your way before my laptop runs out of battery.

This is a very quick purchase I made when I had my lunch with my bestfriend as I remembered that around that time my skin was on a transition from oily to dry, so my skin was chapped all over my face. At first, I didn't realize it but when I want to touch up my makeup, I realized about the chapped skin, I panicked because I don't really have any moisturizer with me.

So I bought this cheap moisturizer and this is what I think. It has a thick creamy consistency which is why it says that this cream is intensive. I do think this is good moisturizer away from home, because it does moisturize nicely, though you have to be careful to be not too thick.

But I think this is an okay moisturizer that I'll only use for when I'm at school or office.

Make-up Review : NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk

Assalamualaikum pretty ladies!

I'm sorry for being so quiet these past few days, I blame this to all of the things that I have to take care of, also with Syawal coming in, I have lesser time to make time for my blog.  I will post up few FOTDs that I've taken picture of while Raya. InshaAllah, so I'm here with just a short review.

I bought this at Sephora for RM19? Correct me if I'm wrong, this is one of the famous eyeshadow bases that has been mentioned all over the beauty world. I do have another in the shade Gold, but I never seem to understand how this could be the talk of the beauty world.

It is creamy, although I was expecting it to be very white, it was less white than I imagined. But I do think that it is a little too white to put on my waterline, as I think it would not really make my eyes look brighter and awake, it just made it look sick. I think I'll stick to nude colors on my waterline.

As a base, I think there's hardly any differences between this and my Essence eyeshadow base as they both give the same degree of pigmentation to my eyeshadows and also, it lasts as much as 6 hours, which is not a big deal for me since I usually wipe of my makeup at noon.

I won't say that this item is a must-have but I think I can stick to other cheaper options before I try my hard to retrieve this item.
