The Week #2

Period covered: 20 - 26 June

This week alone I have been reading a lot; for leisure and for spiritual growth.  Wishing all the pilgrims and clergies at Rio a fruitful and fantastic celebration of World Youth Day!

Oh, by the way, I haven't been lazy at shopping.

The Week in Acquisition

1.  Tom Ford Cheek Brush $650

2.  Emergency Pick-me-ups
Boots, Media, Dariya and Cosmoses.  Four items I purchased within a $200 budget set.  With story and review written - post link!

3.  Delivery - MAC
My friend T helped me order some MAC make up.  Another friend F brought it to the third one, A, and then A gave them to me when we met up for dinner.  :P  post link!

4.  RevitaLash Advanced Eyelash Conditioner
A gift from A, as she finds this a little irritating to her eye area. Not pictured.

5.  Watson's Pick-ups
Victim to the 25% off deal, I made two trips to this chain chemist, bringing home mainly brow products.  I am obsessed with brows... With yet another tube of Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence Water Base SPF 50+ PA+++ 50 g $ 59.4.
Kate Designing Eyebrow N "EX4" 3 g $ 76 -> $ 57
Kate Eyebrow Pencil "BR1" "BR2" 0.07 g $44 -> $33
Palgantong Designing Brow Pencil Eyebrow "BP25 Marron Brown" $ 80 -> $ 60

6.  Naris Up Brow Up Pencil Eyebrow "Light Brown" $ 35
Black Jacq, my Holy Grail!  Recently I've seen fewer and fewer of these in stock at Sasa, and fearing it will be discontinued, I decided to procure back-ups.  Brow pencils take time to be finished but I've used up one of this - post link! - and only have one in use right now.  Justified purchase of half a dozen?...

7.  BCL Browlash EX Waterproof 2 Way Eyebrow Pen + Waterproof Eyebrow Coating [Limited Promotion Set] $ 108
I got both "Natural Brown" and "Grey Brown", the two options available.  Then, I received the Sasatinnie Rose Facial Mist Toner as a gift with purchase...

Weekly Favourites

Tom Ford Cheek Brush
Softest bristles ever.  Very good cutting.  Bristles grab and deliver product beautifully.  White hair allows easy control of amount of product, more than dark hair.

First Aid Beauty (FAB) Facial Radiance Pads
A very mild yet seems to be effective way of doing exfoliation every night.

Must-Read of the Week

Not beauty related.
First, to the pilgrims and souls touched by the accident at Santiago de Compostela - bbc news link! - condolences.  It is a place I could have paid pilgrimage, too, myself.  God bless our trains and railway workers; it has been a tragic year of transportation!
On the other hand, I have been keeping a close eye on the happenings at Rio where the World Youth Day is taking place.  From a distant, you can also participate in viewing and reading, the official website Rio 2013 - link! - and Rome Reports - link! - are two of my favourite sources.  The other official, more comprehensive and well-edited (but boring?), channels are Vatican Radio - link! - and Catholic News Service (CNS) - link!.  Oh, and by the way, I heard speculations that the next one will be held in Poland, the motherland land of Saint JP II.  We'll know by this time next week!

Wish List Concatenation

BCL Browlash EX Waterproof 2 Way Eyebrow Pen "Light Brown" $ 98
Rimmel Professional Eyebrow Pencil
Shu Uemura Eyebrow Pencil

Bite Beauty Lip Layer "Neutral & Bold" (saw this in Allure magazine, Aug issue)
Laura Mercier Brow Powder Duo US$ 24 (can you tell I'm very sickly addicted to brow products?)
Tom Ford "Cocoa Mirage" "Silvered Topaz" $ 550 (despite owning four of these quads, I still want at least 3 more...)

Please help me with my brow addiction, any suggestion?

Beautiful wishes,
Lazy silly Jacq :")


  1. There are so many eyebrows products ...
    What would you say is your favorite?
    I would buy a eyebrows palette of three colors.

    1. Kate or Heavy Rotation or Lavshuca make really good 3 colour eyebrow palettes. They are all around US$10. Tell me if you need help to get them. ;)
