EOTD:Coastal Scents 88 Eyeshadow Palette-Christmas Tree

Merry X'mas!!!
It's the first time I'm using Coastal Scents 88 eyeshadow palettes though I've bought them for more than 6 months!! They are great palettes for playing colors, because of the large color spectrum. The most important thing is, they are quite cheap, around S$30 each, for 88 colors. But there is a lot of fallout with the majority of these shades, and blending of those shades is not easy. This is the trade off between quality and price.. :D Applying eyeshadow primers would make things much easier..
The colors I used for this EOTD are mainly the variations of green, from kelly green to dark green.
This look was inspired by Christmas tree - variations of green~~

Products I used:
  • Eyeshadow: Coastal Scents 88 pieces palette
  • Primer: Lunasol eyeshadow primer, Too faced shadow insurance
  • Eyeliner: Mac eyeliner gel
  • False lashes: Ardell  #110
  • Contact: Neo Glamour Gray
  • Makeup brushes: 
  • Lip: Mac Nude Rose(limited edition), Lunasol gloss #shining rose
  • Nail: Chanel #489

Swatches: Jill Stuart Jewel Crystal Eyes #101 Smoky Quartz

 
Jill Stuart Jewel Crystal Eyes #101 Smoky Quartz is a limited edition of this serious (Crystal Eyes), which was previously restricted to Taiwan market only and now it is available in other areas. I happened to get one from Taiwan (NT1300), which is my first eye shadow palette from Jill Stuart. ^ ^
 

The packaging is as gorgeous as always, which reminders me of my fairytale princess dream when I was a little girl. I love the Jill stuart packaging more than Anna Sui, although their styles are similar.


This quad is mainly a combination of pink and brown, I really love the combination. The highlight color is pinkish white, very pigmented, the liner color is glittery black. The two main colors are light plum pink and brown, maybe mud is more precise.

I've heard some drawbacks regarding the glitter fallout problem, people complains they always end up with glitters all over the face after application. I encountered this problem a bit but it doesn't effect my addiction to JS products, always try to use eyeshadow insurance/primer beforehand or use it wet to minimize the fallout problem.

Crazy Haul from Dior Sale Nov 2010


CD is having their annual warehouse sale at Singapore Great World City West Tower on this Wed and Thur.

My friend Candy reached there early around 11.30am today, because we heard more products will be replenished at 12pm. We queued for another half an hour waiting for their staffs to unload and set the sales items in order.

We were the first batch to go in, the office room is pretty small with much lesser choices than yesterday. We quickly grabbed some skin care products & cosmetics and joined the queue for paying within 10 mins, you can imagine how small the room is and how less the products were available.

Here are what we got today (shared with other 2 friends):

  • CD Mousse Douceur Softening Rinse-off Cleansing Foam, S$20
  • Diorsnow Whitening Pore-refining Gel, S$35
  • Diorsnow Whitening Illuminating Eye Treatment, S$30
  • HydrAction Deep hydrating Intensive mask, S425
  • Dior Capture Totale Multi-perfection Concentrated Creme Radiance +, S$65
  • Dior Capture Totale Multi-perfection Concentrated Essence, S$55
  • Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss, S$15
  • DIORSKIN MATTE AND LUMINOUS SHEER PRESSED POWDER, S$30


    I only saw one eyeshadow palette #089 (right) today, there were more available yesterday and my friend managed to get me a #169 (left). 35SGD each

    Swatches - Sisley Sparkling Rhapsody Palette Phyto Star Eyes for Holiday 2010


    We were lemming for this Sisley Sparkling Rhapsody Palette for weeks and finally got one from Metro, which costs around 120SGD.


    I must admit that I was totally attracted by its metallic "gun metal" case. The packaging is fantastic, when you press the bottom and then the lid flips over. It really looks like a small flip cell phone with a full LCD screen. ^^

    NARS Limited Edition: The Bento Box Set for Holiday 2010



    In November, NARS Cosmetics will be introducing the Bento Box Set, a limited edition set of Kabuki lip color inspired by the traditional Japanese theater of the same name. 

    The Bento Set is so unique that the new lipsticks are in two Kabuki cups. The Japaneses style lip brush looks very special too, its handle wrapped in Wisteria. 


    Maiko is a vivid red, Sakura is a bright pink. 





    The set will be available November 1 for $125 at NARS. You can get on the waiting list for the set now, because only one thousand sets were made for the United States, and just over two thousand were created worldwide.

    Enjoy your shopping.... :D

It claims that it can help to refine the youthful contours of your eyes to defy the first visible signs of aging.

    Review: ICHIKAMI Hair Mask


    ICHIKAMI Hair Mask is one of the Japan 2009 @ Cosme Award products. I read some good reviews few months ago but didn't know where to buy it till I suddenly found it in one of the local Watsons stores. I was so excited and grabbed it without second thought, it never disappointed me.

    I almost finished the whole bottle and it's time to write a review of it now.

    EOTD: Nars Kalahari - Brown, Purple and Green


    Summer comes to the end, fall is around the corner ....

    I got Nars duo kalahari months ago, but it's the first time I use it, it ever disappointed me. This duo contains two different brown colors, both with subtle shimmer and silky texture. The left one is lighter neutral caramel and the right one is darker purple-taupy brown.


    Products I used:
    • Nars Kalahari 
    • Nars Jolie Poupee
    • Bobbi Brown eyeliner gel
    • Freshlook contact lens
    • Makeup brushes
    • Ardell false lashes
    This look was inspired by a picture from a magazine.
    I applied the left color from Kalahari on my entire eyelid, the the right one on the crease area as well as outer corner of the eye. Then blend the edge of crease area up to the eyebrow area using the left color. Applied the violet shimmer from NARS Jolie Poupee on the inner corner using a pencil brush (M.A.C 239 or MakeUpShow 5E05)


    The look with green contact lens from Freshook. I really like this color match.

    Swatches: Nars Muitiple Tint - Beverly Hills, Cadaqués and Turks & Caicos



    Nars Launched Multiple Tints (limited edition) early this summer.  I finally managed to got them 4 months later!

    Bright yet translucent tints give cheeks and lips a sheer, buildable pop of color. The multi-purpose tool can be worn alone for flush cheeks or stained lips.
                                                               - narscosmetics



    The packaging is little bit different, where "NARS" is printed in color to match the color of each multiple.

    This multiple tint collection comes with three shades:
    • Turks & Caicos – Bright Orange
    • Beverly Hills – Bright Red
    • Cadaqués – Bright Fuchsia
    The texture of these new multiples is very different from the original one. They are less creamy and oily, feels watery and not sticky at all. They are very easy to apply and the end result is natural and pretty.

    Swatches: Maybelline Eye Studio Hyper Diamonds

    Maybelline has launched a new line of  Hyper Diamond Shadow palettes recently. I passed by Watsons this evening and lucky my camera was with me.

    There is no doubt that it is a super shiny eyeshadow collection, just like its name "Hyper Diamonds". They launched four shades: Gray (GY-1), Brown (BR-1), Purple (WN-1) and Green (GN-1). I personally love GY-1 more than the rest, the smoky eyes MU shown in the poster looks amazing!


    Each palette contains five colors, with different textures:
