2011 November Haul with Swatches

Hi my lovely readers, how are you guys today, aren't you glad monday is finally over??? i know i am~~~i hate mondays...lol...Sorry that i didnt post this haul sooner, but i was otherwise occupied last week, and i think im coming down with a cold, cuz the hubby's being sick for the past couple weeks, and he finally past on his germs to me this weekend..Boooo...anyways this haul is the combine purchase from all of November till last weekend, i didn't buy all of them at once...lol...if you have any questions let me know...also i wanna put it out there first that i am not bragging, since personally I enjoy Haul post myself and alot of my readers like them too, so if you dont like haul post, just don't read ahead...

I've also did swatches on the products if you rather just look at them just scrolled down to see it...personally, the only complain that i have with all of these products is the Maybelline Cream Shadow, although it is waterproof(i tested), but the colour intensity is just not as opaque as i thought, i like opaque coloured eye shadow bases Since they make eyeshadow shows up more vibrant.


Thats all of them~~~
So here i go with the List:
Maybelline Illegal Length Mascara 
Maybelline Great Lash Lots of Lashes Mascara
Maybelline Colour Tattoo 24Hr Cream Eyeshadow in Painted Purple
Rimmel Hide the Blemish Concealer in Light Beige
MAC Paintpot in Lets Skate(LE)
MAC Eyeshadow in Beauty Marked
MAC Mineralized Eyeshadow in Shimmer Mint(LE)
Sephora Jumbo Eye Pencil in Marine
Sephora Jumbo Eye pencil in Purple
Sephora Rouge in R04 "The Red"
Ole Henrikson African Red Tea Foaming Cleanser (New Fav)
Missha M Vita BB cream 20 spf
Missha M Vita BB cream Matte 20 spf


Thats a long list, but atm, i am loving the new facewash, i actually tested this one out by buying the smaller bottle version and  i loved, so i end up buyingthe big bottle, they dont break me out or give my skin a hard time, but they clean sooo well. i love it.

Now to the Swatches.
My Natural Lipcolour
"the Red" with Natural Lighting
"The Red" With Flash Photography

Click if you wanna see Big picture.
I actually like the Sephora Jumbo Pencils, they are sooooo smooth to apply and waterproof and last all day. They are not that expensive about 10 dollars each. The colour pay off is the best, the colours are soooo intense and im thinking about getting a few more colours.

Anyways if you wanna see any in  depth review of any of the aforementioned products, please let me know in the comment section, also if you want me to do a look with any of of these products, again let me know down in the comment section~~~
In the meantime, i hope you guys have a wonderful week and i hope to blog very soon

2011 November Favorite and Swatches + Mini Review

I Don't ususally do favorite posts because I usually stick with products that i know works for me, but this month ive discovered some good products that ive being reaching more often than other.  So i thought i'd share with you guys.

Bath and Body Works Sweet Pea Body Butter
Laneige Total UV Base
Laura Mercier Mineral Foundation Primer
Too Faced Lipgloss in Pillow talk
Make up Forever Aqualiner 
Boxum Beauty Eyeshadow Base in Poodle
Maybelline Colour Sensational Lip Colour in Coral Crush

Here are the Swatches:
with Flash
Withouth Flash

I am loving the Body Butter by Bath&Body Works, not only it smells nice, but it deeply moisturizes your skin even when its very dry.

As far as eyeliner goes, im loving this Make up Forever One because it is waterproof, although i do think ive had better colour pay off that this particular black pencil, but i like to use this one on my waterline.

The Buxom Beauty Eyebase has being my favorite steady through mid-late this year, and i have to it doesn't crease for up to about 7 hours, i love this colour particularly because its versatility. i use it under any look.

As of this months, ive being obsessed with coral lip-colour so ive reaching out this Maybelline Lipstick more often than usual, i like the colour its very bright, and it warms up your complexion instantly but i do wish its more opaque...

If you've seen my look of the day posts b4 you'll know i used Too faced lipgloss in Pillow Talk quite often since the colour is perfect nude over any lipstick, it also has a soft plumping effecst as well.

I Got this Laura Mercier Base as 100 point Deluxe Sample from Sephora and i have to say, while it does feel a bit dry on my skin, it does make my foundation last a whole lotta longer...

This Laneige  Total UV base is like a BB cream, so i usually wear it when im on the go because it is easy to apply and has Spf 40 which is a big plus for me.


So ya This concludes my November Favorite...Let me know if you guys enjoy this type of post...


In the mean time i hope you guys have a great day/Night, and i will update/post/blog very soon

Look of the Day - Tokidoki Robbery Palette Part Deux

Quite a Few months back i did a look of the day with one of Palette that came with the Tokidoki Robbery Palette, And i was saying that i would do another look using the other two palette that came with the Robbery box. So Here is the look i came up with.


Since the Palette itself is very Gold/Brown colour, so i think this look is very good for fall...and the colours from the palette remind me of fallen leaves..

Here is the Close up:

Eyes Open

Eyes Closed.

I actually really like the False Eyelashes that i am using..since it gives more volume at the end which is the kind that i really like.

Here is products that I used:
Eye:
Tokidoki Palette from Robbery Box
Smash Box Pencil Liner
False Eyelashes from China
Cheeks:
Urban Decay Blush in Score
MAC MSF Natural in Medium Deep
Lips:
MAC Viva Glam Cyndi 
Too Faced Lipgloss in Pillow Talk.



And now some updates~~~recently ive discovered the fun in cooking~~~so instead of playing with make up ive doing alot of kitchen work..lol, but i am still a beginner when it comes to cooking though...but i luv make breakfast for myself, and today im gonna try and make coke-cola chicken wing...lol it seem to be very easy to make, and taste very good, if i do succeed in making it, i might do a blog post about it...lol but ya cooking is sooo much fun...lol


anyways i hope you guys have a great day~~~and see you next time

Tokidoki Cromatico Palette(Quads) Swatch and mini Review

So the Beautiful Miss Alex from ThisIsAlx requested that i do a swatch of the Tokidoki Palette that ive shown in my last haul post, so i was like okay why not~~~if you guys dont know who Alex is, you should really check her blog out, especially right now she has a awesome giveaway. She is one of the first blogger that i got really close with, we both live in the GTA, so we are always planning our meet up in the future...lol

I actually have quite a few Tokidoki product to start with, these two that im showing in this post i got them when i was in ottawa during Canadian thx giving weekend...These quads were on sale during the summer for 14 i think, but right now they went back to full price again, which is 24. I paid full price for these >_<

Aren't they purrty~~~
So ya the above two are the ones i got. The Pink palette is called Polpettina, the Green palette is called Bastardino. I think in general, Tokidoki palette are good quality, the one problem that i've had with them is that, they tend to have quite a bit of fall out, so you really have to make sure you tapped off the excess products. As far as pigmentation goes, without a base they are not as pigmented as say MAC e/s, but they are still good. With a base either colourless ones like UDPP or Too Faced Shadow Insurance, or Coloured eyebase like Mac paintpot or MUFE aquacream ect, they show up extremely well. Also when applied with a base, there tend to be less fall out as well...

So ya here are the Swatches:
Polpettina (click to large Picture)
Bastardino (Click to see Large Picture)
In general these colours are very versatile, especially Bastardino, which i think could easily be a everyday palette with the browns, the beige and the green. Polpettina are great to create a good day time smokey with a hint of girly-ness with the pink. the Colour Riosino, Carnivora and Candy Cane are very very shimmery with alot of glitters, so you might wanna apply with a light hand and rmber to tap off excess products. The Colour Polpettina, Adios, and Mummetto are Matte finishes. The colour LA Gun and Bastardino, are shimmery, but they don't have the huge chunks of glitters are Candy Cane for example, they also produce less fall out.  As far as texture goes, from the matte finishes to the super glittery ones, they all feel very soft, almost have silk texture. even the glittery ones dont feel too harsh...

So Overall, i think these are good shadows, if you can get them when they are one sale i say get it, because i think its a great deal. i wouldn't say they are mediocre, but their quality is above average, and even though they are a bit pricey, but they won't feel feel ripped off by it, plus the Packaging is too darn cute too pass on.
So here are my scores:
Pigmentation 7/10
Texture 8/10
Price 6.5/10 (kinda expensive)
Packaging 10/10 (Uber Cute and they come with cute little phone charm.)
Overall 7/10


So ya this concludes my little review plus swatches of my tokidoki cromatico palette. i hope you guys find this helpful, and again if you guys have any requests or questions let me know~~~i love to do more swatches for you guys, but you have to tell me which one you guys wanna see~~~



So in the mean time i hope y'all have a good weekend

Hi girlies, i have some very bad news...for me

So if you guys being following me for a while you'd know that i have very sensitive/allergy prone skin.. and about 2 months ago i started to have mild allergy attacks at night... i mean it lasted a awhile then i was on medication so it was gone, and while i was in china it only happened one time so i thought great i think im finally over it right??? WRONG....since Sunday night, my body started to react very badly to unknown substance, and since then ive got hives all over my skin from my feet to my face...i mean it comes and goes, but its not going away permenately...and because the doctor doesn't know what i'm allergic to yet, he said only for me to take Benadryl..while it does help with the itching it makes very drowsy....and i really start to hate myself at the moment, like major self pity....

and the worst par is that, i dont know what was it that im allergic to so even if we have it in the house we dont know what to get rid off...and to make matters worse, ive done/touched/ate nth out of the ordinary, nothing that i haven't had b4...so it really confuses me that allergen it is....right now i have a allergy doctor's appointed at NOv. 2nd... and b4 that i dont think i can put on make up or at least until this thing goes away for good....

So ya i guess that'd be my bad news...i will still try to update and try to find new things to write about, but until my allergy gets better, no make up post.....

In the meantime i hope that none of you guys has to go through what i am experience right now because its horrible, and in the word of my hubby he thought i look like a freaking sausage + hot dog with all the hives all over.....and it itches like hell....



anyways I hope you guys have a great day.

Hello Girlies~~~I am Back

Hi there my girlies~~~i am back from china~~~~if you follow me on twitter, then you know that i got back last Wednesday, but i was very much jetlagged, and if you follow me on twitter, you'll also know that ive being sick...well still is sick, but i feel better now than say last week~~~

So ya i guess i should tell you guys abit about China~~~lol well like i said b4, or i hoped ive said b4 i am originally from Beijing, so to go back home and to see my cousins and relatives and my grandparents always feels great. Also, because i am originally from Beijing, I didn't go to any tourist spot Other than the pedestrian friendly Qianmen which i did go to quite often since first of all it is easy to go to from the Hotel, also because it has all the best Beijing Style cuisine the city has to offer...from breakfast to dinner from snacks to dessert, you can pretty much find anything there...lol..but ya i dint go to the Forbidden city, ot Tienanmen Square or the Great Wall, since ive all being to those places b4, and they are awfully crowded with tourist from all over the place...

Since i didn't go to any tourist places, i didn't take that many pictures...lol...well i did, but it was mostly with my bestie and my cousins and my family and such...and food~~~well i try to take picture of everything i eat, but sometimes it would just totally slipped my mind...but i do have to say though, well i luv all the amazing beijing style cuisine the city has to offer because i am a native. One of the hubby's co-worker who is Dutch, didn't really like the food....i mean he likes hot pot, but thats about it...and it was kind of shocking to me that he didn't like the Famous Peking Duck...personally i think that if you are planning to go to Beijing, i think you have to have the mentality that the Chinese food there are going to taste nothing like the Ku-Pao Chicken that you get from North America...Since the chef don't have to adjust the taste to the likings of North Americans, the same dish can taste very different...lol

Well anyways...i guess this should concludes my little update on my current whereabouts...lol i will do a China Haul post....but to be honest i didn't buy that much...i mean the clothing there are pretty, but they dont fit me...lol...and i spent most of my money on eating stuff...i think I've gained at least 5-10 pounds from the trips...even my mom and the hubby think i got chubbier than say a month ago....haha...i guess some serious dieting are in order....



anyways I hope you guys have a great day.

Guest Post by Charley about her handmade jewelry

First of all, i wanna say im sorry that i haven't being updating for the longest time, but like i said before, i have relatives visiting here, so i am very occupied...also, there is a 50% chance that i will be out of the country starting as early as this Wednesday to China, and if i do leave, i won't be back until the mid-end of the months...the trip is actually quite spontaneous...and wasn't planned ...so it is very last minute...if i do go i can't do anything on my blog until i get back...cuz i am going to China, and blogger is blocked/sensored there so are facebook/twitter ect..so ya...but i think i can know by tmr or later tonight, when and if i am going at all...so i think i will update you guys more on the situation once i have a definite answer and date...

On a other notes, Charley from owleyescollection.etsy.com actually contacted me awhile back to do a review post for her handmade jewelries...but Since I am actually not a big jewelry gal...i told her i'd love if she wants to do a guest post on my blog about her store...and i wanna make it very clear that i didn't get anything for free or received any monetary compensation from her...i think she has some awsome pieces, and i always have alot of respect for people who are very good at hand-craft..cuz i have butter fingers, and dont work well with hand craft stuff.


So without any further of me blabbing, here is what She has to say:



Hello Everyone.     

First of all I would like to thank  Jessy  for allowing me to post on her blog.

My name is Charlene and I have been working hard on finding away to make a business from something that I enjoy doing.  With a loss of my job and some support from my family, I decided to give Jewelry making a chance.  I enjoy being creative and being able to make something that someone else will love wearing.  

I created OWL EYES COLLECTION, which can be viewed at owleyescollection.etsy.com
I use high quality chain, wire and beads.  I am also always looking for Great Vintage pieces to incorporate into the pieces I create.   

Also, since everything is handmade I can usually adjust the measurement according to how you would like to wear the piece. 
 
I hunt for great buys to give you great prices.  

Here are a few pieces and make sure to check out my store weekly because I will be adding new items often. 









Use Promo Code OWLEYESJESSY for 10% off your purchase
Thank you 



 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
So ya if you guys enjoy hand-made jewelry, go check out her online store. My favorite piece from the sample photos is the gold rose necklace/pendant...i think it is very pretty, and can easily wore with alot of different outfit and occasions..

anyways, i will keep you guys posted on my travel situations..probably tmr i will do a update...but if i do go to china, it would be soo much fun and exciting, cuz everything is cheaper in China...lol...well the cute little stuff anyway...

Look of the Day - Bronzey and Gold and updates

Sorry ive being MIA...recently if you read my last post you'd know that my brother in law and cousin in law are here in Canada for a visit they are not leaving until the end of the month, so i have no time to do any make up...mainly because they are using my "make up room" as a bedroom, and id feel weird to ask a bunch of guys to get out of the room while i do make up...I am also not that comfortable doing my make up in front of other people especially guys..unless its my hubby...so ya...but being a smart girl i did a few looks b4 they came so i have something to post while they are here...One more thing i think im going to ottawa/montreal/Quebec city with them this week, so kinda excited for that..

Anyways, this is the new look of the day:
Click to see large pictures

Eyes Closed.


Sorry this post is short, but like i said in my previous post everything will be back to normal once they are leaving...and by the starting of September i should be back to my regular posting rates...

Product Review - Bliss' The Youth as we Know it Anti-Ageing Cream

Hello my lovely readers, how are you guys today..I am doing really good~~~haha and today i am doing a review of the Bliss "The Youth as we Know it" Anti-Ageing Cream...I bought this back in end of the May, and i started to use it since late June...

Here is the packaging.
Now personally speaking, i don't have any major wrinkle to start with, however my face do have quite a bit of discoloration because of my sensitive/allergy prone skin...after using this cream for about little over a month, i feel that my face is more "glowy" than say b4 i started to use it..also i notice that it does make my skintone more even than before. As far as anti-ageing goes....at least i didn't get any wrinkle while i am using this one...As a moisturizer, i think it does a very good job. It is a rich cream, but it get absorbed very quickly and easily. And it does have a scent to it, but it's not parfum its the scent from the ingredients. I feel that it does lock in moisture very well. Since its summer our house is air-con 24/7...even if i wake up with no oil on my face, but it doesn't feel dry, and it feels silky even. I guess you can say that it balances oil on your skin as well, cuz not one day did i wake up to oily T-zone(my Oily Area). This cream is design to be used on morning and night, but i feel during the day, it doesn't control oil as it does well at night...but then again i sweat way more during the day than at night...Overall, i really like this cream, i would defintely buy it again..but maybe not right a way, but for winter...i think you guys should try it out if you have the chance...

The only complain from this cream that i feel is that, it is quite pricey..about 87-90 dollars depends on where you buy it from. But personally i do feel that it is worth the money that you are paying..Actually when i comes to winter, i might buy the whole set of face wash/eye cream/toner/cream set...they usually have good value packs during X-mas time.

it is a thick cream, but goes on very smooth.
You only need about pea size for your whole face and neck..


My final Verdict 8/10...Minus too because it is quite expensive...but other than that i have no other complains with this cream..so i hope you guys like my review of "The Youth as We Know it" Cream"..if there are anything you guess want me the review or any make up look you want me to do, or any question about anything...let me know~~~

So have you guys tried this cream b4? how did it work out for you???Is there other cream you've tried thats better, but cheaper??? let me know down in the comment section~~~~


I hope you guys have a great weekend

2. Use a purple base and apply it on top of the black base and all over your eyelids but under your socket bone.
3. Use a dark purple and apply it all over the black eye base.
4. use a light purple or lilac, and apply it all over the purple eye base.
5. Take a Green Base apply it to the out half of the lower lashline
6. Take a dark Green colour and apply it over the green base on the out half of the lower lashline
7. Take a gold eyeshadow and apply it on the inner corner of the eye, as well as the inner half of the lower lashline.
8. Line your eyes with black eyeliner (tight-lining optional)
9. Curl your lashes and apply Mascara
10. Apply your favorite Blush
11. Apply a Mauve colour lipstick and lipgloss...
The Look is complete.

Circle Lens Review - Sheeshell Cosmo Aqua(sponsored By Pinky Paradise) Also Pinky Paradise Coupon Code

A while Back Pinky Paradise contacted me to review 1 pair of lenses for them, i had the chance to choose from anything they offered on their website...and i decide to try Sheeshell Cosmo Aqua...a pair of blue lenses.

About pinky paradise:
They are an online company that is based in Asia that deals with mostly circle lense and asian brand cosmetics, they've being around for a while now, and youguys probably seen other blogger and make up gurus did reviews for their circle lenses or make up b4.

they have alot of great choices of lenses to choose from. Over 350 styles from fun/cosplay style to natural lenses that are perfect for everyday. They are all ready to ship within 3 days. They also offer more than just circle lenses, they also carries lashes, mascara, facial mask to BB cream and etc. PinkyParadise is ‘your eye make up one-stop online beauty store’.

So i got a pair of Blue one, since i don't own any blue lenses, i thought its fun to try it out...

As you can see, its a very blue/green-ish colour.
 Description from Website:
Item details
Weight: 0 kg, 100 grams
Stock: Stock available
Diameter : 14.5mm
Water Content : 45%
Base Curve : 8.6mm

I like the Fact that it has a higher water content, it makes the lens more comfy to wear...

the colour is nice and opaque

I thought the colours are very opaque, a little different than the colour listed on their website...but they are comfy to wear though, i like it...however unless you are Caucasian, i won't recommend wearing them alone without any make up...its a bit too much...but with make up they look nice though...i think this particular pair of lens looks better than in pictures...they look more natural in person...where as in pictures they look abit fake...

The Shipping took about 1 week and half...which is acceptable for me, since it is shipped from all the way from the other side of the planet...the whole transaction is smooth. they pack the lenses very nicely so there weren't any damages during the shipping time.

My Final Thoughts:
Colour 8/10 (Very nice colour. just a bit too opaque and hard to wear without make up)
Comfort 9/10...Very comfy, feels better than the other pairs that i own, but you can still feel the contact lense
Enlargement: 10/10 These Lenses are very big, and give you a great enlargement effects...if you like more wearable color, try the grey or hazel..


Pinky paradise is also nice enough to give me a coupon code to share with my readers: "threenothing"
By entering this coupon code:
1. Customers entitle a FREE cute animal lens case PLUS mystery gifts
2. The coupon code can be stacked, If you purchase 3 pairs, you will get 3 lens case plus 3 mystery gifts.
3. A minimum of 1 lens purchased to activate the code.
4. The code has no expired dates :)

One more thing:

Caution Notes:
You are best advised to consult your eye doctor before wearing any contact lens. It is your responsibilities to minimize the risk of wearing lenses. Kindly please read the wear & care guide carefully to ensure proper handling of lenses (which is provided in the website). The rule of thumb for your eye safety is, if you experience any discomfort, please remove the lens immediately.

On a side note, although i recieved this pair for free, but even if you guys uses my code, i don't get commissioned or get paid. The Only thing i get out of your guys using the code is that for every 5 person who uses my code i get one free pair of circle lens. so please don't think you have to buy it using my code...

Anyways, i hope this review is helpful to those of you who are considering buying circle lenses...or who wants to get a pair of blue lenses..again if you have eye problems already is always better to talk it over with your Eye Doctor b4 you make any decisions...especially if you have astigmatism...
