A day for Me.

I had yesterday off and I was completely determined to do my Birthday shopping! So I took a cab from home and went to Bukit Bintang.. (Well, I haven't been to the NARS store have I?)

I did a great deal of shopping in Sephora.. and had absolutely NO IDEA that they're having a 20% off for members this weekend!! ughhh I'm quite stressed about that!
But I believe that I had a pretty good deal yesterday, so I'm not so terribly bummed.

Sephora is having a lot of awesome gift sets that I spent a while trying to decide what to get! I must have looked like a lost puppy.. walking around quite aimlessly from one corner to another.

Then I went to NARS, completely determined to get SOMETHING! So while I was testing out the lip colours, I chatted a bit with the sales persons on the prices of their products..

You could find most of the products' price from Nicole's blog, but here's some that was not listed there;

Larger Than Life Eyeliner -- RM 90 (NOT cheaper than in Bangkok!)
Foundation pump -- RM 20
Candles -- RM 210.. Or was it 230? (Sorry!)
Nail polish -- RM 60

The nail polishes are USD 19 so price-wise, it isn't bad at all! Unfortunately though, the store only carries TWO shades (as of yesterday,) and one of the shades have sold out, so there's only Galathée left. Consistency-wise, it seemed alright, completely opaque with two coats, but I have no idea how the brush feels as the sales person helped me to put the colour on.. Perhaps once (if) they had more colours I would try it on myself and maybe get them!

The foundation pump is retailing at USD 6 so for RM 20.. Yayy!
The candles are USD 50 so I simply cannot see myself forking out RM 200++ for mere candles! Seriously, that is just extortionate!
And the eyeliners.. Well, I guess I won't be buying them in KL!

Oh anyway, I ended up buying a Satin Lip Pencil in Luxembourg and I am completely in love with it!! It applies so smoothly and the colour stayed like it's nobody's business!
I wore it for work today and I barely had to touch it up. (I only did as a force of habbit!) It didn't make my lips any drier than it always does anyway (especially since I'm working!)
It's really wonderful!
But check back with me later, once I have to start sharpening it up! Hahaha

Okay, I'm losing the feeling on my hands as I'm typing this through my phone! Perhaps I'll write about something else other than make-up next time!

Remember how about this time last year I was crazy to get Clinique's Chubby Stick Christmas set? Yeaaah, funny how I am not so inclined on Clinique nowadays. After trying a few of their products, I'm starting to feel like their products seriously came off of a clinic! Like seriously, have you ever tried smelling the Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion? It seriously smells like some sort of an antibiotic!

Anyway, Clinique didn't come out with anything that I liked this holiday season. I have way too many of those crayon lippies these days anyway; from Revlon, Bourjois and Cliniques too! Now, that's the thing.. had Clinique came out with a set of the Chubby Stick Intense, I'd probably still be all over it! But they didn't! What they had was this Chubby Stick duo that was simply packaged differently;

Cute, but pretty much has no use to me.
Oh, what I've discovered this year; Clinique products are pretty meh -- apart from the Chubby Stick and Chubby Stick Intense. Skincare wise, I don't feel any different than using Simple products.

This year I've been pretty all over Bourjois and NARS. Having first bought them in Hong Kong and Bangkok respectively. It's almost for these perks that I'm thankful for landing the job that I have now. Somehow I just didn't mind the hassle to get them even if that means having to explore the town all by myself.

I have my eyes (and heart) set on two of the lip holiday sets by NARS, first is the Promiscuous Lip Pencil Coffret that comes in a cute little pouch;

(Ah yes, I've been crazy about crayon lippies ever since their existence so it seems..)
And second is the Fling Lip Set that has the lipsticks and lip pencils! (Comes in a red, lip-shaped case.)

I think they're both gorgeous and perfect for someone who's just starting out to try NARS' products.
Would it be too crazy if I get both? HAHAHHAHHA!! Anyway, from reading the local beauty-blogs, I believe the Guy Bordin holiday sets aren't available (yet?) at the Pavilion store -- which I haven't had the chance to visit!
Perhaps after payday.. teehee!
I'd like to go to Sephora too!

Seriously, I am making a shopping list in my mind right now. I really hope I don't over spend this time around! ..although December usually means Birthday Shopping! (since there are a bunch of birthdays to "celebrate", including mine -- which is why I placed the inverted commas there.. and I don't celebrate Christmas.)
Such a perfect perfect excuse to shop, right?

Oh hai!

Don't know how things happened but I'm kinda crazy about makeup and skincare products lately. So much so that I splurged on the NARS' One Night Stand blush palette that was a Sephora exclusive.. Perhaps I should be more specific; it was a Sephora US exclusive!

Yes, this palette came all the way from the American Sephora. And yes, I get a little crazy when I want something!
But I am happy with the purchase. It was a lot of money, but I've been wanting NARS' blush anyway so what the heck!

NARS stand-alone store is opening on the 15th this month (so I've heard) in Pavilion and I am ridiculously excited about it! Their Radiance Creamy Concealer is pretty much my holy grail concealer and I love LOVE the Larger Than Life Eyeliners..
So yeah, I know exactly what I'm getting once the store is open!

Sorry that this entry somehow became purely beauty-related. Like I said earlier, I really don't know how things happened.. I am just excited about these things lately.
