luscious Hydrangea

i really should be getting more eye brushes. i wasn't able to put eye makeup again because my eye brushes aren't all washed up yet. *sigh*

it doesn't matter right because i can still show off something - lip color! today, i decided to play with one of the favorite pink lippies i have, Laura Mercier Creme Lip Colour Hydrangea.

please excuse my lower lip, i think the skin's a bit chafed.

it's a pretty, cool strawberry pink shade.

on another note, i know i'm going on and on about my contest but i promise i will announce it soon! please don't get tired of watching out for it hehe.

what makes me happy

sorry for the long pause in posting, my work is up to my neck lately! Anyway, I've decided to let you all know am still alive by doing a tag post. :)

thank you Aiyoh for tagging me!

the rules:
1. post 10 things that make you happy, try to do at least one of them today.
2. link back to the person who awarded you and pass along for up to ten people.

what makes me happy? simple things really... hard to believe huh, with all the "kaartehan" i project with my makeup and whatnot hehe.

10. receiving gifts i really like. it doesn't have to be expensive or branded. but if the giver took time to pick or make a gift for me that shows that person knows what i am fond of, then that warms my heart.

9. cleaning. especially when am angry or frustrated, cleaning is my way of breathing out bad vibes out of my system. i finish it up with a shower and am back to my happy old self. ;D

8. singing or listening to music. music is my first love when it comes to arts (second is makeup) so it's …

at long last... hauling MAC again!

it's been a looooong time since i bought makeup, much less MAC! i've been anticipating the All Ages, All Races, All Sexes (AAARAS) collection for a while now and i picked some items up the other day. i've been meaning to get 3 items: Penultimate Brow Marker, Universal Mix p/g and Mink brow set. i got the first two and skipped the last one because i found the swatch dull - it was dark gray and i didn't think it'll flatter my skintone.

here's the damage!

Universal Mix p/g

i did a swatch of Universal Mix, but i included it in my swatches post (please see right-hand menu and look for it under Makeup Maniac's Manual). from now on, all swatches i do will be in one post only so you ladies can easily look for colors and not need to look at every post i enter. i was only able to manage swatching and taking pictures of my MAC pigments at the moment, so watch out for other swatches like blushes, lippies, eyeshadows, etc.

on another note, it's kinda ironic how this is …
