Maybelline 24HR Color Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze and Creamy Beige


I love my two shades of Maybelline 24HR Color Tattoo. They are the (25) Bad to the Bronze and (80) Creamy Beige. I find myself being able to do my eye makeup faster when I use them for the reason that probably I have more application control. I actually use my fingers. I tried using a brush and it was a big fail. I couldn’t get any color on my lids.

I only got to look closer at the covers of these today. The differences are, besides the obvious labels, the Bad to the Bronze shade has ‘Gel-Cream Eyeshadow’ written on it, while the other is ‘Leather by EYESTUDIO.’ Also, the former is made in China while the latter is in USA.

No beauty buys in Switzerland

I did not buy any beauty products in Switzerland because everything there is beyond my budget. But I received from my Aunt these Jasmine by OPI nail polishes and Estee Lauder eyeshadow palettee.

I was able to save money from not shopping until my Changi Singapore Airport layover on my return flight.

Estee Lauder Signature and Pure Color EyeShadow palette

Today was really sunny that it was a good time to make swatches. So I did with the palette I’ve been using for some time already. This has also been in my makeup pouch for about two months straight. I use it almost everyday especially for work. It’s a new favorite. I ♥ it. 🙂

The palette contains four each of Estee Lauder Signature and Pure Color EyeShadow. It is a mix of matte and satin shades. Some sheer. Some are buildable for a dramatic eye look yet not to an over-made extent which makes the palette good for either day or night looks.

Lancôme Colour Focus Self-Select – Quad eyeshadow

This Lancôme quad eyeshadow beats all my other eyeshadows. Its longevity is the best.

Lancome Colour Focus Self-Select 001-002

This quad eyeshadow palette contains four shades some of which, based on research as of writing, is available in singles.

  • Suntouched — Frosty, very light brown
  • Latte — Matte off-white
  • Lezard — Matte dark brown with some micro-shimmers
  • Burnt Sand — Frosty light copper

Lancome Colour Focus Self-Select 003v2

Lancome Colour Focus Self-Select 004v2

The eyeshadows are housed in a plastic casing that locks tightly. With the light plastic casing, only the eyeshadows make this palette slightly heavy. This is very compact that it’s easy to tuck in your purse or convenient on travel which is a plus for me.

Estee Lauder eyeshadow and blush palette

My first Estee Lauder eyeshadow and blush palette that one of my grandmas gave me:

Estee Lauder Eye Shadow and Blush 002

This palette is half a foot by two inches.

Estee Lauder Eye Shadow and Blush 001
Compared it with a small Cricket lighter since that’s the nearest to me at the time I took pictures

This palette includes six (sheen) eyeshadows, a blush, eyeshadow sponge applicator, and a blush brush.

Estee Lauder Eye Shadow and Blush 004v2

I’ll start this review with the eyeshadow sponge applicator and blush brush.

Venomous Villains Collection by MAC and Disney

I’m trying so hard to get rid of my writing slump. I’ve been days late to post this since the international release of the Venomous Villains Collection. Anyway, good luck to me as I try to get my lazy ass back to blogging. 😛 Oh, be warned that this post is graphic-heavy.

The cases alone of these beauty products will make you want them all.

Paul and Joe Fall 2010 Collection


I know Karen is into Paul & Joe, so I’m posting this for her. I wonder if she would like the kitty lipsticks. I do and I might get one. Hrhr~

Palette 1 Palette 1
#067 – Silvery Moon

Palette 2 Palette 2
#068 – Paper Moon

Palette 3 Palette 3
#069 – Blue Moon

Paisley design
#066 – Claire de Lune (pink beige)

Swan design
#067 – Over the Moon (pale)

I like the Swan-designed palette and lipstick though I’d get the lipstick first. Then again, the one with the paisley design has a prettier color. I hope to see swatches soon. 🙂

Urban Decay: Alice in Wonderland palette


I was going through photos then I realized I forgot to blog about the Urban Decay Alice in Wonderland palette. My ‘soon’ has taken almost ages. *lol*

Air21 package

I pre-ordered the limited-edition palette around the month of February and it arrived by early April. Super worth the wait!

Sephora packaging

When I saw the Sephora packaging, I suddenly miss being in the US and visiting Sephora even if I didn’t have any money to shop. 😛

I slowly opened the package and took lots of pictures. It’s that special that it requires much camwhoring. XD
