Jacq's Journal 2013 Jolly July | 七月碎念日誌

A collection of random thoughts or happenings.  New updates will be concatenated at the front. ;)

不定期更新小日記。

22 July



A mini MAC haul, I purposely place this here so that no one will notice I shopped...

入手:
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish "Soft and Gentle"
MAC Brush "138" "168" "217"
MAC Eyeshadow "Vanilla" "Nylon" "Patina" "Soba"
MAC Pearlmatte Face Powder "In for a Treat"
MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinish "Definitely Defined"

Vintage Ads inspired, printed postcards by Joyeux Amour - shop link!


Also did a little damage to my wallet at a Watson's with their 25% off all open counter cosmetics...

屈臣氏開架彩妝打七五折,忍不住買了:

Palgantong Designing Brow Pencil Eyebrow "Caramel Brown" $ 80 -> $ 60
Media Makeup Base S "Orange" $ 58 -> $ 43.5
Media Liquid Eyebrow AA "BR" "DB" 0.7 ml $ 58 ->$ 43.5
Curel Sebum Care Foaming Wash 90 ml $ 49

19 July


Went to Hong Kong Book Fair with my cousin, bought a lot of books, subscribed to several magazines (because of the gifts).  Above is just a portion of what I acquired, I'll probably do another post to show everything.

書展 2013 戰利品,其實不止上圖的。。
會另外寫文分享~


17 July



Made a reorder of Nanogen products for Mr. A.  I have decided to try out some products for myself too.  Given I'm impressed with the review written by myself - review link!

幫另一半補給頭髮護理產品,
決定自己也要開始試試看。

最近不知道哪裡出毛病,頭髮掉得蠻兇的
((其實是自己寫的心得 link! 燒到自己…))


13 July



Had an amazing leather craft workshop with two of my girlfriends.  Oh, and I forgot to take a picture of the product (a simple coin case).  Have you ever had any experience with leather?

和兩位女朋友上了一節皮革課。很滿足~
想看成品的話,留個言提提我,謝

;)

12 July


Been playing with some Tom Ford make up, probably writing up a FOTD post soon.  :)

和 Tom Ford 新玩具培養感情中~遲一點點寫文跟大家分享!



10 July




Went and had my wedding hair and make up trial.  Still some points to perfect regarding my make up look, but overall satisfied with the service.  Booked.

去試了妝,滿意。妝容方面還有一點意見,等我細心想想然後跟造型師溝通吧。 ;)

((上面的圖片其實我已經在 Instagram/Facebook 分享過。

06 July





Paid HKD $465 for the above Dr. Hsieh's lot (plus HKD $25 int'l shipping from Taiwan).  Honor and I combined our order for more gift with purchase, and lower shipping cost.

Items I purchased:  Dr. Hsieh 35% Mandelic Acid Critical Home-Peeling Pad (6 pads), 10% Mandelic Acid Home Peeling Liquid (125 ml + 15 ml), 20% MA Liquid (15 ml)

Gifts:  Dr. Hsieh CA C. Asiatica Sensi-Cure Serum, Hyaluronic Acid Long-Term Hydrating Essence, Acne 15% Mandelic Acid Anti-Acne Gel, BS Amino-Acid Derived Cleansing Milk (60 ml), BS Botanical Cleansing Oil (60 ml)

被 Honor 勸敗,繼而合購的:謝醫師杏仁酸。連代購服務費+從台到港運費,總共花了 $490 ,算抵了吧??



02 July


Currently obsessed with acids to exfoliate and whiten.  One of the ingredients I'm very keen to try out and experiment with is Mandelic Acid (from Almond).  The White Formula Intense Brightening Laser Toner with Tranexamic Acid (HKD $70.4) has three key ingredients: Tranexamic Acid, Alpha-Arbutin and current obsession Mandelic Acid.  Also picked up the mask - Intense Brightening Laser Mask with Arbutin (HKD $45) which also has Mandelic Acid but not Tranexamic Acid.  Reviewed other White Formula products before, link to read more~

I blame both of these purchases on Honor!

受 Honor 煽動,最近對杏仁酸有莫名的慾望(?)
煥膚[=去角質]和美白方面都很有效。
路過(有沒有這麼多路過)萬寧看見自白肌新美白化妝水優惠價七十元,就帶了一瓶。

順便邀請了旁邊的面膜跟著回家。
以前就用過自白肌面膜[點我看敷臉照],很有愛。


New month, new Sasa VIP redemption.  Bliv by Cellnique Bright is Right Dullness Cessation Original Japan Silk Mask (HKD $15) and Belle Madame Make Up Sponge (free) are the only things that I got - pretty proud of myself!

Went into Mannings again after my lonely meal and purchased two boxes of masks which I certainly do not 'need'.  Dr. Morita Refining Essence Ultra Slim Facial Mask (8 pc), with organic green tea, and Dr. Morita Natural Organic Formula V Face Syn-ake Essence Facial Mask (8 pc), are buy-two-get-15%-off, cost me HKD $100.3 in total.  

七月會員換購,一塊免費的臺灣化妝海綿+一塊星加坡面膜(加十五塊錢)。

另外,由於等另一半放工等太久,逛進了一間萬寧。
手滑了買兩件八五折的森田
類蛇毒是主要目標,茶多酚是誤中副車…

been waiting Mr A for over 3 hours - rice fun wrap ceased my hunger...
Dinner was one-man set at Mc Donald's as Mr A worked way over-time.  This wrap was quite nice, in fact. (the chips and coke aren't that 'healthy' though :P)

嘗鮮,試吃麥記的麥飯卷~
味道不錯。

一個人吃,難免有點[瀟灑](?)

  1. What do whitening products actually do and how? I've always been intrigued by them.

    1. i guess, some ingredients help to renew skin and remove old cells - new layer is paler than the 'dead cells'.
      otherwise, skin pigment (melanin) can be targeted before, during and after formation... arbutin and various acids can help!
      Asians market are really into whitening so I have a lot varieties to play with :P

  2. I'm also tempted into trying products with mandelic acid. I'm interested in trying the one from dr. wu.

    1. I got the deluxe sample size of dr. wu mandelic acid toner - which item do you like to try? i have so many mandelic acids on hand now, i'm afraid i'll need to try dr. wu later :D

    2. I want to try the renewal serum with 18% mandelic acid.
      I just read your review on the Prof. Tk mandelic acids and with those prices, it's hard to resists.
      I think I'll might get the Prof TK mandelic acid line to try before I try the mandelic acid line from dr. wu.

    3. I see! For beginner, I think 10% is safer. Now I can use 10% without irritation (Honor reminded me to add a lot of hydration), but when I use 20%, I'm still very cautious (i just use cotton bud to dot it on)
      Prof TK is great, I'm such a whore and starting to use Dr. H now :P I guess Prof TK won't be mad at me, having an affair with Dr. H? LOL

  3. I do not like pot shadows, I like the packaging of mac...=)
    patina is the first eyeshadow on my mac wishlist.
    I have a new msf is very cute and I can't wait to use it, I want to see swatches of your MSF.
    I thought Palgantong only make to loose powder,
    Speaking of palgatong, I think I will break the embargo and buy the powder of that brand. XD
    all those are samples of magazines? O_O

    1. I do like the single pot of MAC eyeshadow but I seem to forget using them in their little pots...
      Palgantong powder is okay, good quality but not superior than other brands.
      Yes! I got all of those with magazine subscription ;)

      Delete
  4. I've never worked with leather, I want to see your creation =)

    I like the more loose hairstyle, do not know why.
