Ellis Faas creamy lips #L105

Some of you may or may not know the Dutch makeup artist, Ellis Faas.
If you're interested to read more about her, visit her profile/website here :)

Was this shade a mistake? why yes it was... BUT it was technically my fault ><
I originally wanted L101 (Ellis Red), but I did buy this from an eBay seller. She was
selling a set of luxurious makeup including a brand new YSL water resistant eyeshadow
from the Spring 2012 collection all for under $40. Apparently I read the number wrong
or something but none the less, this turned out to be quite a lovely shade on my lips.
This is more of a brown red in person. It's a very mature, sophisticated lip colour. I can
definitely see myself wearing this to a wedding or some kind of a more formal event.

There are 3 types of formulas and each of them have a different lip applicator
1_ Creamy Lips (lipstick definition and long wearing coverage)
2_ Milky Lips (fluid, translucent appearance)
3_ Glazed Lips (ultra wet, long lasting splash of colour, transparency)
Check out the shades here :)

The formula is very moisturizing and lasts quite long even after eating/drinking.
If I had the extra money to splurge, I would probably buy another shade of my liking :p
You can also send the packaging/bullet back, which helps to raise money for a charity,
called War Child.

Ingredients List:
Hydrogenated Polydecene, Isododecane, Hydrogenated Styrene/Isoprene Copolymer, Polyethylene,
Disteardimonium Hectorite, Propylene Carbonate, Octyldodecanol, Dicalcium Phosphate,
Candelilla Cera, Prunus Domestica Seed Extract, Ethylhexl Palmitate, Tribehenin, Tocopherol,
Ascorbyl Palmitate, Sorbitan Isostearate, Pentaerythrityl Tetra-Di-T-Butyl Hydroxyhydrocinnamate,
Palmitoyl Oligopeptide (wow I'm dizzy from typing this lol)

I'm going to be putting up the ingredients list for every beauty item I talk about because I think
it's important to know. By typing it out, it's easier to copy/paste/search :)

Wednesday's outfit

Tank top: Costa Blanca
Denim vest: H&M (altered, used to be a blouse)
Skirt: Forever21

Things I want from eBay ;)

Finally decided to make this post ;) I can spend hours on eBay hunting down for the most
random things. Sometimes I come across amazing stuff, like the things I'm about to show
you :) I have a ton of stuff on my wish list, but here are some of the more recent things I
am wanting! :p These will be great gifts as well :) Links below the photos and prices are
approximate! shipping to your country may also change, so I didn't include that >>

___________________________________________________________ star plugger ($2) ☆ purple bow plugger ($9)
I've been seeing these earphone pluggers/stoppers a lot lately. Maybe it's more of an Eastern
Asian trend/fad? I find them rather cute and because I never use my earphones, these will give
my phone a nice little touch of cuteness/prettiness :p

__________________________________________________________ cat phone case ($7) ☆ melting phone case ($6)
Okay, I love these cases. They are adorable :p The ears on the cat phone case can help turn your
phone on and off :D I've been wanting the paint/icecream (whatever you prefer melting) case for
a while now, but didn't get it because a friend of mine had the same one for her phone ><
_________________________________________________________________________☆ pen and stylus! ($21)
I've been looking for a stylus for my phone (not sure why... to be honest lol). I came across this
one and instantly fell in love. I'm going to get it... and no one can stop me >> even though it is
kind of overpriced... or is it? >> I think so >< but this has a pen on the other end... nifty ;)

_________________________________________________________ cat print flats ($24) ☆ ponybrown agenda ($12)
Unfortunately, the seller for the flats do not have my shoe size... or maybe a UK size 3 will fit me...
not quite sure as I have pretty small feet >< and I've always wanted a Pony Brown agenda :)

______________________________________________ leaf doorstopper ($5) ☆ clip holder ($5) ☆ pop phone! ($15)
These amazing maple leaf door stoppers are beautiful and would make a lovely gift for those
who just bought a new home! The fun sink paper clip holder will be great for the office ;p and
the phone is kind of like a 'replica' of the POP phone by Native Union, but less expensive ><

_________________________________________________________________________☆ pocket hand mirrors ($3)
These cute little pocket mirrors are small and convenient enough to put in your purse :)

Hope you liked this random post :p should I do more of these? :)

Tickle My France-y

I went dress shopping with my mom yesterday night.
She was looking for a dress to wear to a wedding and ended up getting
a simple, black ruched dress from H&M. I picked up two basic skirts :)
I always pick up their latest magazine. I love their fashion editorials <3
You will probably see the skirts in an outfit sooner or later :)

I redid my nails this morning for work. I quite like this design :)
I especially love the base colour and the green glitter! :p

Base: Sally Hansen Green Tea & Olive base coat
Colour: OPI 'Tickle My France-y" (been wanting to try this colour for a while!)
It was hard to capture the shade of this polish >< In person, the bottle looks like
a muted grey, purple, nude... but there's a tiny hint of pink too >< difficult to explain!
Design: Konad Image Plate M72 (with the special polish in 'white')
Glitter: CM 'lime glitter'
Top: Konad top coat

Dinner! homemade beef noodles aka Pho :p yummy

An Orange Bag

I did it... I bought another bag >< tsk tsk
I went into Winners, and it seemed pretty empty so I wasn't expecting to find anything.
I looked into the Handbag section and noticed a few lovely tote bags but was a bit over
my current budget >> (I should really set a monthly budget). I stumbled upon this lovely
orange, sturdy, and structured bag and fell in love! well maybe not completely in love at
first because it was orange after all... >> I didn't have anything this colour and it was the
perfect size to travel around with. I looked at the price; $30 and then I couldn't put it down :p

I like how it's not super bright orange though...
it's more of a rustic orange if you know what I mean :p

So this is what happened... I now own it >>

I must say... making these videos are kind of fun lol :p

My awkward turning >>

As some of you may or may not have noticed, my videos are unlisted on YouTube because
I'm uncomfortable with making my videos public. I want them to be specifically for my blog
and for those who come to see/read my blog :)

Monday's outfit :p

Monday's outfit >< I wasn't sure if I should just post a video =\
and yah... my music cuts off near the end lol because I haven't found any
good free instrumentals to use. I don't want to run into any copyright issues :p

I'm also liking this new song from Big Bang called "Monster"

I don't have much to share this week :p
I am craving to go shopping but I know I shouldn't ><
Zara, H&M, J Crew, Express, Asos... so tempting!!!

Just spotted the lizard

I am currently loving OPI's 'Just Spotted the Lizard' :) from their new Spiderman collection.
This is basically a dupe/copy of Chanel's 'Peridot'
I don't have Chanel's 'Peridot' but have seen comparisons online :)

I did a very subtle design... I wanted it to be more visible but failed =\

Base: Sally Hansen Green Tea & Olive base coat
Colour: OPI 'Just Spotted the Lizard' (very beautiful colour in person!)
Design: Konad image plate M83
Glitter: CM 'diamond glitter'
Top: Konad top coat

I actually filmed a video of my outfit... not sure if I should post it up ><
I'm testing out my new compact Canon G12.
The quality doesn't compare to a DSLR, unfortunately...

Testing out the video, let me know how it is ><
I find that my outfits look more 'real' compared to photos lol
I can also move around and show you things :p
