Sergio Rossi Slingback

June 14, 2011 § Leave a comment

*clears throat*

Let me proudly present you with the Nude Sergio Rossi Slingback I’ve got awhile ago. They are peep toes, 4 inches, Nude Patent Leather AND amazingly comfortable. I am not even joking at how comfortable these 4 inchers are. I own another pair of 4inches which is by YSL, they are not nearly as comfortable as these one.

The insole of the Sergio Rossi is made incredibly well; it fits the feet like a sock. Of course, if you don’t like slingbacks, Sergio Rossi do carry this colour and style in a pump.
Anyways, check them out if you are looking for a comfortable shoe for graduation prom, business dinner, date ….. You can literally run in them (well, I might be exaggerating on this one). 
I got mine in a local department store called Lane Crawford.I am sure there are retailers for Sergio Rossi alll around the world. If not, check the store locator out.

June 13th. Mini Haul

June 13, 2011 § Leave a comment

Two products I’ve bought today at SASA
Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Complete UV Waterlight Lotion SPF 50+ PA +++
Clinique derma White Clinical brightening essence
My wig from vivianwig has arrived today. This wig is called a half head wig. From its name, this wig does not cover the whole head but only the back part of the head. You can either pin up your bangs (like what I did) so that your own hair will blend in with the wig or you can wear a hairband to cover up where the wig sits on your head. I think this half head style is most ideal for summertime since having the entire head covered with a wig is probably too hot. As you can see, the result is very natural. I like it very very much. Very impressed with how it turns out. This is currently selling at 79 RMB. Contact me if you need more info. 
That’s it for now. 
Love, Christy

craving for some mustard???

New polish from Bourjois. 

These two colours I got from their new collection are the 36 Jaune Trendy and 42 Orange Creation. I was going to get the green minty colour, but I recall myself ordering a similar colour on eyeko. I am still waiting for that to come in the mail. I fell in love with the mustard colour right away as this isn’t the most common colour you can find. Then, the orange colour caught my eye also! 
However, these enamels are not the easiest enamel to apply. They are very thick in texture which means that you have to try to obtain very tiny amount for the first time and apply a very thin layer, or else you might create clumps or bumps when applying the second layer. I got quite frustrated while applying this evening, but I could be a very bad at applying nail polish though. However, I am loving the colour to bits and pieces. 

On the side note, Bourjois HongKong is currently having a promotion right now. If you buy three nail enamels, you will get a 125ml Gentle Nail Enamel Remover for free. It claims to be scented with red fruits and vanilla and also not to dry out the nails. Anyhow, if it does dry up my nails and makes my nails crack, I will let you guys know as soon as possible, but in the meantime, I need to finish up my other bottle of nail polish remover first. =P 
Love, Christy

Review on Chanel foundation compact & concealer

March 3, 2011 § Leave a comment

Hello, I am going to do a review on a recent purchase of concealer and powder foundation compact. They are both from Chanel. 
The foundation Compact comes with a brush and a sponge. It says that the brush will give a translucent result where as the sponge application will give a natural coverage result. Therefore, usually what I do is use a sponge to apply to areas where I’ve applied concealer then use the brush to lightly apply the foundation onto the remaining part of the face. I’ve been using this compact for a week already. Before I used the loose powder by bobbi brown which cracks occasionally under the eye area because my under-eye area tend to dehydrate faster (just like everyone else). However, this compact from chanel can actually keep my under eye area wrinkle-free for hours. Also, the powder is fine enough to give good coverage. I would totally recommend it. For previous times, I’ve tried the foundation compact from Armani, shisedo and bobbi brown. This one is by far the best I’ve used. I am paler asian, so I was recommended to use the B10 Beige which is the 2nd lightest shade in the chanel collection. 

So moving onto the Lift Lumière Eye Contour Concealer from Chanel. I have to give it a HAPPY FACE =D. This concealer is natural looking. Although its coverage isn’t as good as the concealing kit I’ve used previously from bobbi brown, this concealer is a water based formula which makes blending easier. However, the downside to water based formulas is the time and skills it takes to apply it. This concealer is in a more liquidy form whereas most concealer sold on markets are creamy; therefore, when you first apply it, I recommend you to apply a thin layer first with a brush and wait for it to dry, then apply another layer with a brush then blend it out with your ring finger.  This will give better coverage. This is a good formula for asian I think because the shade has more yellow to it which gives a more natural shading to asians. I know all about having a paler or whiter under eye when the concealer is too creamy (harder to blend) and a more paler shade. Neglect the fact that I am pale as an asian, I am still asian so there is always some yellowness in me. However, I do not know if other parts of the world are selling the same shades as in Hong Kong. But you can always check with the makeup artists at the counter and have them try out different shades for you.

So this is the longest review I’ve written in quite a while. Next time, I will be doing a review on 3 of the bb creams I’ve used.
