MAC Matte Lipstick | All Fired Up

I figure after tuning the brightness (and white balance) of these pictures, the colour doesn't look right.  Therefore, don't trust my pictures 100%.  I'd say, just take about 60% for the colour.  It is pinker in real life.  This draft was sitting in my Draft Folder for months and I just want to get this out.  Perhaps I should do a collective post of my MAC lipsticks (or by colour family?) in the future, to give myself a better overview of my unhealthy stash... What do you think?

Long story short, I like this lipstick A LOT.  The matte formula is comfortable and easy to wear.  Got this last Summer but I will start wearing it again, ASAP.  I also find this slightly whitening my teeth with its brightness.

Does bad lighting in photo-taking, or colour-correction in photo-editing, ever frustrate you?

(I'm almost always pissed by that...)
Beautiful wishes,

Shop Her Stash | MAC Haul

Do not ask me how and why.  I managed to help my friend clear her stash by buying the above from her at around half price.  My stash do not need any growth except in the downsize department, so I cannot justify this purchase by all means.  Nonetheless, I have taken pictures and typed out their names, for shameful record purpose... :S

All MAC unless otherwise stated.

Retail Therapy | When Burberry Fails Me

It was near the end of the Year of the Snake.  One chilly but fair afternoon, Honor and I went beauty browsing (and shopping).  Our target was pretty clear, she wanted 1 (or 3) Lunasol lipsticks; and I want 1 (or 2) Burberry Spring eye shadow palettes.  We even dragged her mum, my aunt, along, because her Sogo card has rebate with purchase at the Burberry counter.  Bullet-ful were our wallets, all but a chance to 'fire' was we seek.

Empties | Q1 2014

After taking nearly a month's break from blogging, let us just jump right in with a 3 months worth of empties, shall we?

Let's keep the rating, ranking system simple for now.  Holy-grail enters my favourites, Must-try is recommended, Not-bad did the job, and Can-skip means fail.  Is that clear?  Clear to me, at least.


Not-bad.  I used this as a pre-shampoo scalp and hair treatment.  It is an oil that smells pretty essential-oily.  I forgot why I wanted to try this because I do not, did not have dandruffs.  Perhaps I want my hair to grow thicker and longer?  This didn't work miracles but it was pleasant to use.

Helenere | Hedelweiss 24H Cream

This past February was one of the coldest one I've been through.  Damp and dry alternating, one day it was 6 degree, another 16.  I felt sick and my skin felt the same too.  A lot of the nights - and days - I couldn't stand to finish all the skin care steps, and I just slapped on either an oil, or a cream, after a hot shower, and ran into bed.  To be frank, I haven't been the most diligent at skin-caring for a while recently, but thanks to the decent products in service currently, my skin is in acceptable condition.  One of them is the face cream I'll talk about today.

** Notice: I'll be travelling in Italy from 12-27 March, with limited network access (who trusts hotels' free wifi anyway?).  Stalk me on Instagram/Twitter/Facebook (link on your left, or at the end of this post), where I'll be more present than on this blog space.  Ciao.  Salve.**
