Right after our Italian honeymoon-pilgrimage-vacation, my SD card decided it is time to retire. It simply stopped working, not allowing camera or computers to read or write it. Not only are our valuable trip photos now unobtainable, so are the pictures of my travel empties... (Yes I do mourn over such meaningless photographs of what basically is trash. #pathetic).
Anyway, let me begin by the only 2 things I shot with my phone on the flight, hence being the only products featured that were used in our trip.
SK-II Signs Eye Mask
Wanted to put on a treatment eye mask underneath the steam eye mask hence I put this on. It was nice, and my under-eye did look decent after the 11+ hour of flight.
KAO Steam Eye Mask "Odorless"

I was out of town when the March box was delivered therefore I received that after the April box arrived. Haven't tried most of these yet, but figure it won't hurt to do a quick Un-Boxing type post just as a record of what I received. Right?
In the March box there were two distinct food/health items. BRAND'S InnerShine® Berry Essence with Grape Seed Extract & KING Chrysanthemum Tea both didn't interest me so I'll immediately give them away, not to mention that the Brand's drink is making a repeat appearance...
Onto the skin care,

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.

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.

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.

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.
JANE CARTER Scalp Renew
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.
