This is the 2nd Face-of-the-day Friday post. I hope I can continue with this little series because we all love to see some FOTD, don't we?
I struggled a little naming this post, or look. 'A' MAC party doesn't seem to reflect the importance of this party to me. Replacing 'A' with 'The' is arrogant, as if everyone knows which party I was wearing it to. Anyway, I figure I would settle with 'A', as I wish I would be invited to many more other parties in the future. :")
The StyleSeeker party's dress code was "Sassy, Chic and Exotic"; I don't know where did I fall into. As far as my observation goes, that night, most guests were either Office-Lady styled, or night-club appropriate. Not particularly sassy nor chic nor exotic. :P For your information, my outfit was an Indian set Mum got me when she's on holiday in India.

A short review on this sheet mask I tried a few days ago. I got this as a 1-piece trial from Taiwan last year, probably, and so, I have only used this once. Hope my 2 cents of review will still be helpful!

Sara from Europe (her blog) contacted me and ask for a little international swap. I am very in love with my Catrice eyeshadows so "why not!?" and here we go! This post is a little show-case of everything she sent, and I'm sorry I forgot to swatch them, and I haven't yet used all of them... Will do more posts later... Okay?
Excuse me for capturing the evil red carbonated syrup next to the Uvidea XL Tinted Cream by La Roche Posay. It is simply because, I can't live without either of these in the current heat and Sun. Uvidea XL offers SPF50 and PA+++, while the coke offers a few hundred kCal while it quench my thirst and cool me down.

I am still a few dozens photos behind my real-time update, so if you don't want to read out-dated pictures of my life, follow me on instagram or twitter for the most recent ones!! I update them up to a few times daily~~~~~

My order with SmartBuyGlasses has arrived, and here comes some pictures of the shades! As mentioned in the post before, the site sells designer glasses at good discount, and with a coupon they sent me, I picked these Rayban Aviators up with just a couple hundreds of (Hong Kong) dollars!
This is simple show-case of what I (and my sister) hauled back from Taiwan over July/August. Before you read on, have you noticed the addition of Facebook box on your left hand side? Please do me a favour and go Like my facebook page! That will make my day. Thank you!!!!!!

Here comes a review of another new My Beauty Diary 2-step mask pack. This time it is the Africa Hydrating Pack...
Full Name: My Beauty Diary, 2-Step Africa Hydrating Pack
Step 1: Mango Moisturizing Mask
Step 2: Myrtle Rejuvenating Emulsion
Kiran (@mycherrylane) is probably one of my most frequently commenting visitors. We recently talked a little more on instagram and eventually came up with this swapping idea. I'm so crazily happy to get my hands on another Sleek eyeshadow palette!

From now onwards, every other Instagramming post will be posted on my other blog (www.jacquisition.com). So you can't read the odd number posts if you don't follow that. Big loss, Huge! :D

Sheet Masks are some of the skin care products that I can't live without, and some of the few that I expect instant and observable results in 1 or 2 uses. Since teenage I have been trying out different brands and textures, and does this new 2 step pack lives up to my expectation?
Warning: Most of my sheet masks post/review are loaded up with my weird expressionless bare face. Be prepared.

To go with the ombre, gradient colour combo, I have picked a few of the corals in my nail polish stash to swatch and wear one-next-to-another. Finishing off with a yellow little pinkie.

I'm doing this post only on the 'full size' items. Samples and other bits will be in another post. For their individual short review, I'll be employing my new rating system, marking them with "Hurray, Okay or No Way". :)
Not always true, but that's what I feel when I use this product.
Another skin care review! This time it is a cleaner-slash-exfoliator, non-foaming cream, from Dr. Hauschka. Sorry my tube was from Germany, hence the German. The English full name is simply: Dr. Hauschka Cleansing Cream.

Thank you Felix@fashionography-x and my friend G for inviting me to this amazing MAC party! Last Friday, we went to the MAC Style Seeker Party, where snacks and drinks are served alongside the new collection of make up - equally yummy!
I managed to take some nice pictures of the party, a few close-up shots of the products, my face before and after the touch-up with the new collection AND swatches of the blushes!

The month began with a pretty random trip to a Lancome counter, followed by a massive book fair gifts haul, a blog sale shopping, some preparation purchases for my Taiwan holiday, free samples and souvenirs received, and some cheap brushes and tools. If any of these interests you, be prepared of the overload of pictures and products below and please read on.

Finally, here comes another Naruko skin care review! Please note the pump bottle of cle de peau was re-used, I have finished the cle de peau long time ago, and review link is here.
I was thinking to give this review a bilingual attempt, with all the Universe against me (actually it's just my laziness). So this time it will be only English...

Warning: There is nude faces of mine in this post. Brows were shaved off due to an insane approach to change my brow shape for a certain make up look. Lashes are sparse, naturally. Freckles and discoloration are very prominent due to sun exposure and extreme tardiness to care for skin. If you're prepared, please
I have created a random way to standardise my reviews. That is, to categorise products briefly into 3 types of products. Namely: Hurray, Okay or No Way.
Hurray = Winner = Love = Favourite. Will repurchase or have repurchased. Enjoy using it. Will cry if I lost it or taken away by sister(s). Worth the hype, worth the dollar spent, worth my words.
Okay = Nonstriker = Mediocre. I won't pay full price for it. Glad to use them up. Happy if received as gifts. No complain if obtained at real good discount. May work for me, but not necessarily worth the dollar or the love.
No Way = Loser = Hate. Have difficulty using it up. More than happy when this is gone. If ever acquire this again, probably will give away or toss. The fact that I don't like it, doesn't mean it is bad. Just that we are not meant for each other. You may love what I hate... right?
Lame, ain't I? But these 3 rhyme. And I am proud of myself. LOL. Expect to see my coming reviews to come in such silly terms. :P
Lazy silly Jacq :")

1-3. On double-deck bus' upper-deck. From Tsim Sha Tsui going home. I detest numerous things of Hong Kong, but double decks are one of the many I am grateful for.
4. Pic from miss photographer of my shoot with happysunlab. Post on that later!

Last year, this time, I was in Madrid, celebrating the World Youth Day with millions of Catholic Youth, religious, and the Holy Father. This year, this time, I have a lovely swap with a friend from Spain!

Please excuse the condition of my nails in these pictures. They were post-holiday and I chopped/peeled off some of them for no special reason. I'm calling this Short NOTD because I will keep this short! Short description and review of the items used will be discussed below:

(Warning, this is a patriotic post. I am an extreme patriarch every 4 years, during the Summer Olympics.)
This is gonna be a really random post with a mix of sports, my favourite medalist, make up brand, an Illamasqua 'haul'and sales. If you aren't interested in diving, or how I weave these unrelated ideas together, then skip this post!

Last week, the company Firmoo (www.firmoo.com) contacted me and asked if I'd like to review their eyewear on my blog. After browsing through their store and realising that they do polarised sunglasses for my non-prescription eyes (is this a formal term?); I think "Why not?" and picked a pair. It's my pleasure to do so for my readers, plus, they have a free pair with first purchase promotion. If you're interested, please read on!
上星期 Firmoo 廠商聯絡我，讓我選一副眼鏡試戴。由於我眼睛不需要矯視，加上我手邊已經有幾副比較＂正路＂的太陽鏡，於是我便挑了一副＂不正常款＂。。。
