Sept - Oct 2011: Hong Kong ~ SG Massive Hauls ~ Swatches (Lavshuca, NARS, Shu Uemura, Lancester, Seche..)

During September, I went Zhuhai, Macau, Hong Kong for work. At very short hours I grabbed alot of stuffs from the shelves without even looking at them! Hahax.. just kidding^^" But yah, I almost swiped off products from shelves cos I don't have much time to even think if I should buy them due to the busy schedule and itinerary!

Finally, I get my hands on MORE Lavshuca lippies (YIPPE YEAH YEAH!) and also the NARS Orgasm Blush which my bro couldn't managed to buy during his Thailand trip! \^o^/~

I didn't buy Laniege but I REALLY REALLY Love its BB Essence Balm! I wanted Bodyshop's Extra Virgin cream compact but its too oily.. Laniege's cream compact feels so smooth & sheer, I would want to get one~ T^T But I didn't turn back cos not enough time for more shopping.I think i cost about S$48 which is reasonable and I also tried their sunblock, its feels so good too! Should I buy them in Singapore or ask someone to CP? Which one is cheaper? o_O

Professional Dragon Air Brush fostep series HK$50: I long yearned for a professional salon type of round hair brush because it makes hair look shiny and smooth after combing it (+ hair blowing) with it. When I saw this brush selling at only HK$50(~S$8!) I grabbed it without thinking! lolx.. After googling, I found out that this is a replica brush of the so call famous Y.S.Park Brush. (Mine is replica, cos the brand name is not same, plus it writes "Made in PRC" hahax^^") My brush should look like one of these? More about YSPark. And read more on Brushes. I'm now using my brush everyday and it REALLY makes my hair looks smooth & tames my frizzy hair! ^^

OCC Lip Tar vs Sleek Paint Pout
I have OCC Hush & Trollop, both are last year's birthday presents from Na ^^ And now I bought 4 Sleek Paint Pouts namely Cloud 9, Minx, Peachy Keen, Milkshade.
I did swatches of all, and found that OCC is more watery and Sleek feels alot thicker/creamier than OCC. Both are very pigmented and can cover dark lips. I prefer OCC for its smell and that it has this minty taste. But I prefer Sleek for its tip, able to control how much I want to dispense, unlike OCC it always flow a huge amount out and make a mess everywhere.
I did some colour mix with Cloud 9.. And come to think of it, I don't own any mixing palette.. time to get 1!  Any recommendations?^^



OCC Hush vs Sleek Minx
I did a DUPE swatch of OCC Hush vs Sleek Minx, as shown on 2nd pic. I gave up on OCC Trollop vs Sleek Milkshake because I find that they don't really look like dupes at all after I did my first swatch (above pic).
Although both looks pinkish but Sleek Minx has this mild rosy tint while OCC Hush is towards the beige side.



Sally Hansen Extra Strength Creme Hair Bleach (Before & After pic)
I think I forgot to show my before eyebrow pic..^_^" Anyways, just imagine messy black eyebrow!
The bleaching is so strong that it only took less than 5mins for my eyebrow to turn light brown. When its about time, certain part of my skin starts to sting. Its a warning to say that I'd put for too long, so I immediately wipe the creme off and wash it.
As shown below, I followed instructions, put 5ml of activator with 10ml of bleach. After mixing for sometime, it becomes more than 30ml which I can use it to bleach my eyebrow, finger hair, knee hair & toes hair (lolx~ Why the hell I bleach these areas?! Cos, I find these hair obvious and obscene than my leg hair. =p~) and maybe my armpit hair (if I have XD~)



Shu Uemura vs Shiseido Lash Curler
My Shiseido lash curler recently failed to curl my lashes even after I changed the rubber to a new one. Probably reason why because I been using it for like, more than 5 years? ^^" The metal parts now feels loose. Thus, Shu Uemura now officially replaces Shiseido curler~
Remembering at the beginning, Shiseido was as good as my current Shu Uemura curler. I had changed the rubber for several times already. I guess its really the time for me to let go. *sobx* T^T
Below shows the comparison between the 2. Note the areas that I drew arrows are the places that shows obvious differences.
And I wonder now, where do I buy the rubber for Shu Uemura? I bought Shiseido's from Chinatown, IVY shop. Not sure if they also sell Shu Uemura? o_O Anyone have any idea?
