My DS lite

As you recall, i am loving my ds lite becuz it really help killing times..hahah. As you can see, its a really plane white looking Ds so i wanted to "bling" it out more by adding the Swarovski crystals on them. I bought the Swarovski crystal online at Artbeads with free shipping. They cost around 5-25 cents each depending on the size and the quanity you buy. I recommend buying the size 4mm and E600 glue. WHy??

  1. 4mm is the best size since its not too big or too small. If you really want to "bling" ur accessories like; cellphone, mp3 player, cameras, or DS. etc. its the best becuz its not too big, and it will fit most accessories.
  2. i regret buyin my at 6mm becuz its too big, and its doesnt show much sparkly than the smaller kinds.
  3. E600 glue is the best. It holds on tight, and when you want to take your crystals out, it doesnt leave a nasty dry sticky glue behind like others. Also, it doesnt ruin the surface of your accessories. Thats what my friend told me, and she recommend it. Cuz she decorate her ds and got bored and took off the crystals out, and it look brand new like no one ever decorate it before.
Anywho...i am planning to buy more crystals for my camera becuz the 6mm size are too big!

see how big is the 6mm swarovski crystal are? Not as nice and sparkly than the smaller ones..

Everyday Minerals

Today i got my free EM kit, all i had to pay shipping of $5.49. The container were smaller than i expected! anywaysss...the colors i pick out for my foundation was a lil too light for my skin color, in the pictures, they look way darker in real life. So i am kinda dissapointed in it. =[ You get to choose 3 foundation colors of your choice, 1 concealer and 1 blush. So next time if i want to purchase a foundation from EM, i should choose a darker tone since these are way too light for me. I guess the Maybelline minerals are the closest to my skin color. So i will be trying those out. I guess i will also be trying the EM too since i have it. It wouldnt hurt to test it out. =] the blush color is pretty cute too. I think i will be using more of that than the foundation... =]

Maybelline Mineral Powder

Yesterday i was browsing around and wanted to try out Everyday Minerals because i heard some pretty good reviews on them. I usually dont wear foundation or powders because i feel fake when i use them. I feel like i have too much makeup if i use it. So i never ever use it, only when i take professional studio pix or going to a special events.

Even if i did use foundation, somehow i feel like my face is being painted with loads of makeup! Foundation is not a bad thing or anything, but i feel that towards myself. But for others, i think that foundation looks so good on them. But not good on me.

So i thought to myself why havent i try minerals foundation? Its more natural and i can wear it to special events without feeling heavy on foundation. So i went on Everyday Minerals site and try out their free kit with the choice of 3 colors foundation, 1 concealer and 1 blush. All i had to do was pay shipping.

SO....while waiting for it to come home, i went to Walmart and bought the Maybelline Mineral Powder and try to see what its like to use minerals foundation. I hope the best will come out when i use minerals because liquid foundation is a lil heavy for my taste. I have to say i am envy to see girls that look so goood with liquid foundation on that looks more natural than how i look with it

Pros: So far, I like it a lot because it gives semi full coverage without me looking fake, and gives me that natural look which i needed. =]

Cons: Just you need to apply multiple times, but that doesnt bother me much. =]

I bought mine in Nude light # 4

Victoria secret haul

I went to the mall today with an old friend of mine from HS. I got a gift card from VS and wanted to use it. So i went to the makeup section and found some pretty nice "Very Sexy" eyeshadows.. i bought a dark purple in "Taboo" which looks very shimmery and glittery. I also bought gel liners duo in pink and brown, which i loveeee those colors!!!! Everything all came out to be $25. If you want to use the VS eyeshadows, i recommend applying a base first before applyin the shadows. They looked pigmented but dont be fooled. I had a VS eyeshadow before and it wasnt that great compared to MAC or Nars. So its best to use a base first if you want ur e/s to last all day...=]

Essence of Beauty brushes

I went to Cvs couple days ago and bought a box of brush sets, they are call Essence of Beauty, and boy are they good brushes for a really cheap price! i bought a lot of brushes from them and they are so far pretty good! I bought a set of 4 brushes for the price of $10. The brushes are the powder brush, angle blush brush, an all over eyeshadow brush and a eyeliner brush. The brush material are very soft, and it doesnt shed. I think it is sucha great deal to purchase for those who just starting out with makeup. I do own some Mac brushes and they are really good too, but i only buy one in a couple months cuz they are really expensive. And i think that the brush price for Mac went up! I donno if you guys think so because i notice it....or it just me who hasnt shop at Mac for 2 months and might forget about the price...hehe. Aneeewaysssss, who ever live in an area where they have CVS, i recommend you guys go check out the Essence of Beauty brushes!

Eyelash lengthener....

I just read in a forum that talks about Mavala eyelash lengthen. And i read many good reviews on it. So y not? At first i never thought that eyelash lengthen would works, since my sis use the Revital lash, and it look the same too me, but she stated that it does make her lashes fuller, but not longer! I dont care if my lashes are fuller, all i want for it is to be looonnnggg!!! For fuller, you can always put on mascara right? So yah i bought mine online at WHATSHEBUYS for $16.50 not so bad right? For the Revital is like $100 something, way too much for me. I didnt want to risk it. So i recieved my order in like 3 or 4 days, pretty fast shipping. They say it takes about a month to see the results, and i been using it for 2 nights now. I will be doing an update on my lashes to see if it does work. >.< /

My greatest day ever!!!

Lets rewind about a month back in July when i was in VN for my vacation, and of course we were traveling here and there and were taking some great pictures, and my bf's brother has this Canon sd1000 which i thought was a regular camera, then i try to take some pictures, and wow was i amazed...!!! THe colors of the pictures are sooo vibrant and the lighting wass sooo perfect! I thought to myself, heck i better get this camera! I used to not like the Canon point and shoot camera becuz i always thought the pictures was way toooooo over exposure when you take with Flash, and without flash, the faces came out too dark. So thats y i didnt like using it that much. But after i used the sd1000 and found out they have such great features, i plan to buy it. So yea thats my whole how i got into the Canon sd1000.

Then I was searching online for it, i saw a newer version of the sd1100 came out, they also came with different colors too. So yea i was like lets just get this since i get to choose a color of my choice. So yea i choose PINK..i had a really hard time debating for pink or brown. But somehow i choose pink. The prices are pretty legit becuz i got mine for only $197.00!!!!! With free shipping and free Tax!!! I did went outside the store to shop around, boy they cost about $250! I was lucky that i got a good price from it. I bought it at, such a good site to buy electronics stuff from there. Pretty trusted too! So yea i need a new camera since my old Sony is getting weird, as in taking pictures that are way too exposed...which i hate the most...and other functions. So ya i gave that to my sister.=]

Since i have a new camera, i will be taking the fake eyelashes and be posting them up! And more makeup tutorials too!

OH yea one more thing.... I got my Nintendo Ds lite!! At first i thought i wanted it, but then i realize that isnt it too childish for me?? To be playing games....???? Sooo yea didnt think about it untill 2 weeks ago i saw my friend has a pink ds and she was playing Super Mario(which is my favvvvvv. Game ever!) So yea i was starting to have that feeling of wanting first it looked so cute and compact. SOO heck I wanted it! Just cause it look cute and it has games..haha =P Anywhooo, my bf decided to get it for me since it was a late 2 months BD present...aww sooo sweet of him...!!!>.< I think it is gonna be a good thing since it kills boredom, and it can entertain me! muahah...I got a white one, gosh i love white in everything!

Coastal scents new brushes

Coastal scents just promoted their new brushes. To tell u the truth, i been buying their brushes couple times now. And most of them are really good brushes. The good one i want to say are the Italian Badgers brush. The hair are really soft...and it doesnt shred. I been wanting an angle brush, so i am thinking of buying the Italian Badger angle brush. They also has the Jumbo angle brush too but i think they are way too big. SO yea these are their new brushes. OH and one more thing, i also recommend you girls to buy the jumbo fan brush too, it is great for brushing out the leftover eyeshadows that falls under your eyes after y apply on ur eyeshadows. I bought my jumbo fan brush in VN for about $5USD, it yea sucks, but its still usuable and its really soft too.

UDPP tip!

You guys will never notice this but I was amazed after i found out...that we can actually save a lot of the UDPP by cutting it out and scoop the primer out! I think it is such a great idea and i will soon gonna do it! I found this tutorial on youtube and thank you for posting it!

Smokey green eyes

This tutorial is from the palettes that i brought from Vietnam. the colors i chose for this tutorial are dark green, light green and a highlight color under my brows!

1. Start out with a base, i am usin Mac cream base.

2. Start out with a black or ur darkest green first on the lid. You can use applicator or brush.

3. Make sure the eyeshadow goes a little above ur lid.

4. Apply a light green color on top of that and starts blending it towards the top. I am using a Mac brush 259 for this.

5. This is how it should look.

6. Then choose another light green and starts to apply it on the bottom of ur eye.

7. Finally draw black eyeliner on the top and bottom lid of your eyes and put on fake eyelashes for the dramatic look! And you are DONE!
