Sleek MakeUP's Nude Collection

Here are the much awaited swatches of my newest Sleek MakeUP.  Thanks again to the beautiful Maria Sparkle.  She was kind enough to send me a few items from the nude collection.  I am dying to try them out.  

Top L-R: Nougat, Nubuck, Cappuccino, Honeycomb, Toast, Taupe
Bottom L-R: Conker, Moss, Bark, Mineral Earth, Regal, Noir 

This is a beautiful palette!  I cannot get enough neutral shades.  Majority of the eyeshadows are matte with just a few shimmery shades.  

L-R: Suede Blush and Bare Minimum Pout Polish

The blush is a matte light brown shade with some coral undertones.  If my skin was a bit lighter, I would definitely use this for contouring.  With the pout polish, it does as it says.  The color is to the bare minimum.  It gives you lips a nice colorless shine.  

Would you try any of these items?

Sleek MakeUP Pout Paint Swatches

Sleek MakeUP is a brand that I am continuously drooling over.  Thanks to my lovely fellow beauty blogger, Maria Sparkle, she sent me more Sleek MakeUP from our latest beauty swap.  Their pout paints is something I have been wanting to get my hands on.  

L-R: Mauve Over, Lava, Peachy Keen, and Pinkini

They are such beautiful and pigmented colors!  One day I hope to own them all.  Some colors I would use regularly and others are fun to wear on occasions.

Birthday Gifts

This is such an overdue post!  But here are the goodies I got for my birthday.  They are just some small stuff I got from my aunty, inlaws, and cousin-in-law.  =)  

Items: Conair Instant Heat Rollers, Mele & Co Jewelry Box, Academy Colour
Have you tried any of these items before?

I really like this because now I could just put all of my jewelry in one case.

I have never heard of this brand before, but I am excited to try it.  I love the different colors it came with and the little pink and clear rhinestones that were included. 

This chain is very clever.  My cousin-in-law bought it for me because one night we went out and I told her I forgot to put lipstick on.  So she got me this, which you basically attach to your purse and voila you will ALWAYS have lipgloss on you. 

I promise this will be my last birthday post for this year.  ;)

EOTD & OOTD: Happy Birthday To Me

On December 4th, I celebrated my quarter life crisis (25th birthday).  My good friends and I went to a buffet for my dinner at Tsukiji at the Ala Moana Shopping Center.  Once we were done, we waited for Tsukiji to turn into a night club but they were taking too damn long.  So instead we headed to another night club called The Villas at the Aloha Tower Marketplace.  I had LOTS of fun.  There is nothing like good music, drink and friends to celebrate a memorable birthday.  <3  


I have probably done this color combo for my eyes, but I just felt like using black and gold again.  It was just a simple look I did. 


For my birthday, I wanted to use my little black dress that I bought at Charlotte Russe last year.  I actually did some alterations to it on my own.  It originally had sleeves, but I wanted them to go.  I think it looks great now.  My wristlet at hand is Coach. 

I FINALLY used my steve madden heels.  Even though it was my first time wearing them, my feet was not hurting as much as I thought!  I can definitely see myself buying more SM heels in the near future.  

Here is a picture of my friends and I after dinner.  I love them all.  We have literally been through so much in the past but our friendships were strong enough to surpass it all.  You guys are the best!  <333

At the end of the night, I was a bit drunk (as you can see from my face all flushed), but my makeup was still on!  Haha.  One thing I am sad about is that I forgot to put on my falsies.  =(  Oh wells.
