What Her Mom Got Me from Osaka | 大阪帶回戰利品

This post is a sequel to my wish-list.

The Mom referred to in the subject is Honor's Mom.  Do go check out what she got from her Mom, too!


I got one of the Holiday Set - Christmas Collection 2014 Body (with Beauty Glow Body Cream Sweet Wonder 200g, Make Palette Winter Wonder and Original Pouch, ¥9500).  And two Mesmeric Lipstick #08 and #12 (¥3990@).


Besides the Holiday Addiction Tokyo Jazz (¥7200) The set features: -Limited Compact in Tokyo Jazz -Eyeliner Pencil in Blackjack (full size), -Ribbon Clutch.  Out of the initial three colours, I cut down my wish to only one Cheek Stick #Rose Bar.  I was on a high lipstick kick so I also asked for Lipstick #Cassis (S for Sheer) #Day Trip (S) and the new Lipstick Pure in #Spy Pink (all ¥2800@).

Only got a Bright Up Lipstick #03 Barairo (¥5400), as planned.  Can't you tell I was seriously lemming for lipsticks?

Mythic Rouge #10 (¥3800) is actually quite disappointing as the packaging is exceptionally light and cheap feeling, despite the price tag...

Samples - my share after splitting the loot with Honor.

Now I need time to properly play with these!

Beautiful wishes,

Empties 2014 | Finale

These pictures were taken mid-January so I was kind of cheating.  If you can get past that, then please read on.  Not that it matters to you the slightest bit, right? :P

Warning: *Loaded with random photos* *Lots of rambling* *Non beauty related*

Big Birthday | Clé de Peau Beauté, Suqqu, Burberry, Shu Uemura & more

Poo load of photos, wee load of words.  *brain-washed by nappy explosions*

FYI, yours truly's birthday was in October.  Therefore photos in this post were cut off by November, missing a lot of stuff.  This doesn't cover many more, e.g. Black Friday haul from Sephora/Ulta (thanks Tao), UK gifts from Sam, and swap with Sara, etc. etc. etc...

New Year Resolution | New Project 10 Pan

Blog-wise I can't really make any plans.  As much as I adore blogging, I really can't afford much time taking photos, editting and sitting down finishing with words.  I still the amazing blogs I follow almost daily.  But along with youtube-viewing, blogging is really going to be a once in a while treat, instead of everyday activity.  Sometimes, like now, I can write a few words on my iPad; other times, my son doesn't even allow me to touch my electronics.

Beauty-wise I hope I can down-size a bit.  2014 was a spectacularly spendy year and I purchased plenty, especially in the Lip department.  I promised myself to review my stash but I never did.  The size has gone out of control.  My 2 Ikea Alex cannot contain everything and things flow over to the desk, floor, next door, and everywhere.

To kick off the year, I'm doing a Project 10 Pan.  Trying my best to use up, or hit pan on, these 10 products in the month of January.  Will check back by the end of this month to see how things go!

5 Skin Care

DECLEOR Aroma Cleanse Soothing Micellar Water with Rose Essential Oil - Sensitive Skin
I'm a huge fan of the Decleor AromaEssence Neroli which my facialist uses in my treatment.  I went to Sasa hoping to find that in stock and realised Sasa was sort of phasing out this brand; everything was 50% off.  I couldn't find my AromaEssence so I grabbed a bottle of this cleansing water to sooth my soul, and my skin.

SULWHASOO Essential Rejuvenating Eye Cream
A light texture cream with beautiful ginseng aroma.  Given this is one of the expensive ones in my stash I figure I should use it up instead of toss it out when it goes bad.

ORIGINS Dr. Andrew Weil Mega-Mushroom Skin Relief Advanced Face Serum
Around Autumn this year, I bought myself a bunch of Origins skin care (I have a long post coming up, God knows when I can finish that) which includes this serum.  I was adventurous and went for the largest size (best value).  After half a bottle I am still on the fence about this stuff.  Decided to keep using it before I whack open my EL ANR II (Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair II).

EMBRYOLISSE Lait-Creme Concentre
Bought this, forgot this.  Only remembered this last month, and have been using this as make up base/ day cream ever since.  For something this moisturizing, it is really quite quick-absorbing and light.

CLINIQUE Moisture Surge Overnight Mask
A very great cream mask to lock in moisture overnight.  I use this as the last step in my evening skin care routine.

5 Make Up

DANIEL SANDLER Watercolour Blush #Cherub
Bought this after watching a video by gemsmaquillage.  Haven't really used it that much.  Liquid and creams will not stay well long so it's time to give this some good uses.

REVLON Colorburst Lip Butter #Sugar Plum
I have over a dozen different shades of this lip butter.  It is one of my favourite drugstore lip products.  Just want to dare myself and see how long it would take to finish one.

SOLONE Gel Like Smoody Pencil #Bronze
You know you have a product for too long when the company has repackaged it.  This is how long I have this (and the other colours).  Bronze is probably the most wearable shade so I am hoping I can work through this fastest.

PARADO Eyebrow Pencil #BR03
Because I am in a constant fear that I'd run out of my ultimate favourite Naris Up Brows Up, I turned my attention to use up some other brow pencils I have - I do have a lot.

One of the quickest way to do my base now, is get a Real Techniques Buffing Brush or Expert Face Brush, dab this on my face and blend carelessly.  Not getting a lot of coverage (don't need much these days) but makes skin look dewy and more even.  *and, yes* I only bought the refill, not the case...

OKAY, so what are your new year resolutions?
