Esprique Precious X'mas set 2009 Swatch/Review

here's the review as promise.

I tested all items this morning, luckily the sky was clear so i could take the pics of the products.

This is the esprique eye gloss, since someone asked its actually liquid eye shadow, normally shimmer and more lasting.

this eyegloss in shimmery white silver. They are really generous with the shimmers.

But i find it hard to match my neutral e/s collection though.

this is the polish that came with the set, its pink with silver undertone and very fine colored shimmers. As under the sun, i could see little tiny blue, red & green. But its indeed a dazzling x'mas with this. I'll be doing all my nails using this color soon.
Just in case, you wonder whats the size of the blush, here's it vs MAC

swatch for the blush, i'm liking the coral color. guess its my fav shade now as blusher!
its slightly sheer, luckily its not very otherwise i would shy away from this set soon.

I tried all kinds of ways to picture lip gloss from the past till now.. finally today, i found the prefect pose for my lips to showcase the gloss to you gals. Its certainly ugly pose so i dun find myself showing my face anytime soon haha..

i like this gloss, its not as sticky as MAC and turns out to be quite lasting. One of my fav gloss for now! The colors is really nice and VERY glossy...

What do you think about this x'mas collection?

My X'mas starts with KOSE Esprique Precious set!

Hows everyones X'mas mood? Has it started?
My X'mas holiday mood has already started as i spotted this KOSE Esprique Precious X'mas set at the mall today while passing by for lunch. I saw it in the mailer the other day but it was indicated that item will only start on sale from 1 Dec. So how can i miss it.. immediately i head towards the counter for checkout haha, fast shopping rite.

Yumeko, bought this recently in Japan too. I was actually expecting for her review but couldn't hold back since its such a great value.

pic as per advert

actual pic by me

here's the content!
The nail polish was of almost the same size as the majolica majorca one which i'm quite pleased as i prefer minis than those full sized one. (so i can buy more for the same space)
the eyegloss, which was rather shimmer

swatch on the eye gloss & lip gloss (more of translucent pink w/ shimmers)

The blush is Jill Stuart inspired kinda combination.

pic of the blush casing... i want a pouch to protect the casing...

even the opening button is so pretty with 2 jewel on it...
the blush with the brush
both pic above are very close to actual shade... its quite bright and not as shimmer as i thought.
For the 1st swept using the blush, it was so shimmer & sheer that i was quite taken back.. but its due to the white shimmers dust as the butterfly decor as you can see in the pic...
will do a full review on this lovely x'mas set tmr!

Nail Swatch: Majolica Majorca Artistic Nails PK314


my monday blues was gone so here a post on my fav nail swatch. I did my this wk nails using what i got from my gf in taiwan. The majolica majorca nail polish. Their bottles are in such a good usable size (not many can actually finish the full-size bottle varnish except for base/top coat) so i like it so much. As you know, i love pink & all kinds of neutral shades. So i had beige previously, here comes the pink!

the formula came out smooth and its kinda quick dry which is good when you need to rush 2 or more coats. The color came out as rosy pearl pink which i like and has a silky metalic finish look too when you look at it from far especially when under sunlight.

taken with direct sunlight, isn't it pretty! i'm luving this shade, are you?

My Sephora F&F swap with Amy!

Hello everyone!

what was in everyone's shopping bag for Sephora F&F. Since its not available to my location so i did another fab swap with Amy! Its certainly another wonderful experience for me..

i put up my shopping using polyvore... hmm its rather fun putting them together. I'm gonna to try it again soon.
If you notice, i bought a lot of lip gloss as i'm addicted to that after blush which is still my love. My current gloss purchase could easily see me thru this year or maybe next year but i'm too afraid to commit as you wouldn't know whats the next collection!
this is the actual pic, which includes some NYX purchases too. So think all of you could figure out that i'm quite broke for a x'mas haul. Think i would really try to be good and shop really less otherwise i might ends up with no holiday next year.

and this gal flooded me with so much new love again! Btw, i have yet finish trying all the stuffs for last round from amy. So i'm even more excited when i saw the new ones. I have to speed up in experimenting them otherwise they would pile before i start my next purchase oopx!
a pair of sweetie earrings is included too.
So right now, i'm seriously busy trying out all kinds of new stuffs. I tried the stila lip glaze, it taste of grapefruit and less sticky compare to mac and does keep my lips moisturise. will do a full review, probably with swatches if the photo turns out nice.

My Drama Craze: East of Eden!

Hows everyone wknd so far. Mine ended yesterday, so i'm trying to chase away of my monday blues! While doing this, i decided to do a different post other than my usual review. I love korean drama, simply hook on them. But i watch them in moderation like once a week on every saturday as its hard for me to find time and sit back watching my fav show.

My current fav show is East of Eden, with Song Seung Hun (my fav actor). Its his 1st debut drama after he finish his national service. So how can i miss that. Its airtime is 10.30pm to 1.20am. Since its a saturday, my gals wouldn't sleep that early so finally they turn in at 12pm. I was getting ready to watch but my hubby is hogging to the TV for soccer matches until 1.30am.

The TV is finally mine. So i started watching switching on the replay and watched all the way till like 4+am. The show was really nice, i enjoy my show while sipping choya! Sounds heavenly without the kids and hubby around. It had been quite some time i watch show till this late after the Prison Break (missing Wentworth or should i say Scotfield instead...!)

The worst part of everything is to wake up at 8am next morning! Arghhh but i survived without even taking a nap which is good. But nearly doze off in the middle of the day on the sofa. More details of the drama below:

The drama will be about two men whose fates are crossed from the very first day that they were born. Both men were born in the same hospital. When he was a teenager, Lee Dong Chul witnessed the death of his father. From then on he promised to seek revenge on the man who caused his father's death, Shin Tae Hwan. But unbeknownst to everybody is the fact that Dong Chul's younger brother, Dong Wook, was switched at birth with Tae Hwan's son, Myung Hun. Dong Wook grows up to become a prosecutor and vows to help his brother seek revenge. But what happens when they find out that they're not brothers? What will Dong Chul do when he finds out that his real brother was raised by Shin Tae Hwan and that the brother that was beside him all these years is the son of his enemy?

What's everyone watching now? Gonna get back to work now!

Mascara Review 10: Rimmel Glam'Eyes Mascara

I got this mascara from amy for our last swap. Rimmel is a UK brand which i'm interested to explore as the packaging is pretty hip and trendy. They had hit into singapore store just few months back and amy sent me one before i started exploring them. She can really reads my mind and she knows i'm crazy for mascaras...

Rimmel Glam'Eyes Mascara
Introduction from their website:

Seductive Volume. Turn heads. New VolumFlex Brush styles lashes for sensational volume and instant separation. Ultra supple elasto-bristles groom each lash, lacquering them from root to tip for a spectacular 7 x more lash intensity. Big Lash Seduction. High Definition. Maximum lash impact. Impeccable definition. Smoothing formula glides through lashes, wrapping each one for ultimate volume yet perfect separation. Lashes look dramatically amplified yet sleekly defined - even up close and personal

I like the color combination, pink with black and the texture of the packaging
clean looking brush

my eyes with makeup from KATE palette

sorry for the poor lighting.

eye with the mascara on, its more to volumising which i'm not really a fan of as my lash look so short even though dense

it doesn't curl as much i want it to probably due to the length so i couldn't feel the curl.
This mascara is suitable for gals who is looking for volumising effect and one thing good is that your done lash don't feel stiff at all unlike other volumising mascaras.
