Uk Trip Haul :D

Hello guys!

I have been shopping a lot during the holiday! UK has plenty of makeup brands that I could not find in Singapore and I took the chance of getting those things! I know I’ve been a bad girl during the holiday. When I reached home after the holiday, I felt guilty looking at my new stuffs 🙁 But anyway I enjoyed my holiday so much and now I should work hard to pay off those shopping damages LOL 😀

Suqqu

This is Suqqu counter in Selfridges Manchester. I didn’t take more pictures as I was too excited to look for products here. I had fun swatching many products. There are many items that are not available there because I think it sold out pretty quickly.

Here are my Suqqu haul; 2 eyeshadow, 1 blush and 1 eyebrow palette.

Illamasqua

These pictures are also taken in Illamasqua counter in Selfridges Manchester.  The Illamasqua counter there is very happening with 3 SAs that have dramatic makeup and dresses! The thing that gets me most excited is to see their blushes. I have Illamasqua blush in Hussy and I love it to bits. I had fun swatching at the blush counter and decided to pick

I purchased three items from Illamasqua; a blush, an eye palette and a cream highlighter.

Chantecaille

I picked this Chantecaille Classic Palette in Harrods. This palette was on sale together with the Tiger in the Wild palette. Chantecaille products pricing are so expensive even after the price reduction. I paid (£50 or £75, can’t remember exactly). Honestly I bought this only because I want to collect a product from a brand that I have never had before. I will do a review about this palette soon (I hope 🙂 )

Drugstore Haul from Boots & Superdrug

I had fun in both Superdrugs and Boots mostly in between Christmas – New year because they are having generous promotions. I bought quite a number of products there as they are having a “Buy 2 get 3” promotions and I will get a free goodie bag when I buy 5 products or more. Gosh I could not control myself and bought there things with me. I know I am a bad girl when it comes to shopping but I’ll give myself an excuse since this is a year end holiday :p

Real Technique Brushes

Sleek Eye and Blush Palettes

Miscellaneous brands – Maybelline Color Tattoo, Revlon Lipstain, Max Factor lipfinity, Loreal Eyeshadow, Rimmel Eyeliner, etc.

Model’s Own and Barry M are one of those brands that excites me the most in Boots and Superdrug. Their glittery nail polishes are to die for! Barry M nail polishes were about £3-£5 each and Model’s Own were about £5 each.

That’s all I have for you 🙂

I have many things to be reviewed and please be patient with me LOL.

Thank you for reading.

Burberry Beauty Event at Tangs Orchard

Last December I attended a Beauty Blogger event from Burberry. I snapped some pics so that you guys know what’s happening 🙂

Celebrity Make Up Artist Larry Yeo was there to do a demo makeup. He was using Burberry Palette in Smoky Grey 01.

I received some goodies from Burberry to try on the products. During the event, some items were going on sale too. I purchased few items. So here are the items I purchased and I received during the event 🙂

I am going to do a quick review on the make up products here. I will only share about my thoughts on the texture and the color in this post. I will have a more detailed post on the packaging or FOTD in a separate post.

Burberry Palette No 6 in Plum Pink

This is my first ever Burberry eye palette. Plum Pink is a very pretty palette. It combines neutrals with plum colors. The texture and pigmentation does not disappoints, it blends very easily and the color payoff is so nice.

Burberry Lip Velvet in Rose Pink

Rose Pink is a dark pink with a hint of plum. Burberry Lip Velvet has amazing texture and pigmentation. It glides on easily and it stays with me for at least 4-5 hours. Although I am not a fan of lip velvet because it’s less moisturizing, I can’t say that I don’t like Burberry Lip Velvet. It has great moisturizing effect on me compared to lip velvet/matte from other brands.

Burberry Blush in Earthy

I have always been wanting to get Burberry Blush in Earthy. It has a very subtle warm color that blends very well to my cheek. It has matte finish hence it’s very suitable to be used as a contour powder. I am so glad that I got this blush as it’s very versatile. I am currently using this more as a bronzer but in times when I don’t feel like wearing blush or when I am wearing a bolder lip color, I will reach for Burberry earthy as both bronzer and blush.

 

Wow, that’s a pretty long post. I hope I would be able to do some LOTD post for you. I have so many items to be reviewed so please bear with me if I am kinda late to post the FOTDs or any detailed post 🙂

 

Thank you for reading

My Picks for Dior Grand Bal + Diorific in Diorling Review

Hello dearest readers!

Dior Grand Bal collection is one of my favorite collection for this festive season. The packaging is just soo pretty and classy. I foresee that I would love this products even more after few years. I am a person who loves to take a look at my old product and admiring how pretty the color and the packaging is.

I picked few items from the collection. I picked two nail lacquers and a lipstick. Dior Nail Lacquer in Diva has caught my attention for its lovely gold shimmer and Marilyn has a very pretty red for Christmas season . I also picked Dior lipstick in Diorling, a perfect nude for the Christmas season.

Here are my picks for Dior Grand Bal collection:

Diorific in Diorlong Review:

The main thing that attracts me is only the packaging. Actually I know that I don’t need this lipstick but such a nice packaging is not something I can get every year. The packaging is just classy and would look amazing anytime I am using it.

Diorling is a pinkish nude lipstick with micro fine golden shimmer. It has satiny finish. The texture is fine; opaque in two coats and lasts for 4-5 hours with me. However I find it less moisturizing compared with other brands such as Chanel or Burberry. I like to use Diorling as a base lipstick color to top it up with a shimmery lipgloss.

I will try to share with you the swatch of Diva and Marilyn soon. Pardon me if it takes quite long to swatch those nail polish 🙂

 

So guys,

What is your pick for Dior holiday season?

Thank you

XOXO Meryl 🙂

Chanel Notorious Sculpting Veil paired with Orange lips from Chanel Rouge CocoSari Dore – Review and Look

Hello!

Today I have two products to show you. It’s the highly discussed Chanel Notorious Sculpting Veil for Eyes and Cheek and Chanel Rouge Coco in Sari Dore. I bought Sari Dore very long ago (more than a year) but had no guts to wear it since the color looks so bright on me. However today I dared myself to wear this outside 😉

Chanel Notorious has recently hit Singapore shore. There’s something very unique about this product that makes me curious about this product. I have seen swatches of this in many beauty blogs and I think this item is really a collector item.

The SA at Chanel store in Ion Orchard told me that Notorious can be used for both eyes and cheeks. It is the grey color that intrigued me to buy this and see how it looks as a contour on my cheek. Messy Wands has done a great contoured look with Notorious, I think it suits her very well.

The grey color is very sheer but if you are applying this on your cheek, you need to be careful when dabbing your brush. Although it is sheer, the color shows up very well.

I have tried this on my cheek and I must say that at first it feels weird to see grey contour on my cheek. However after few moments, I start to love the color so much. It creates an in depth look on your cheek. My cheekbone does not shows up naturally so I am always thankful if I could find a nice contouring product. Chanel notorious gives me a more in depth look.

Chanel Rouge Coco Sari Dore is a coral/orange lipstick with a satiny finish. A year ago I was really scared to pull an orange on my lips but after trying to pull this shade again, I must say I love the color so much! I think the color looks very vibrant yet doesn’t look too much. I am sure this color works on most skintone.

In the look I created below, I am pairing Chanel Notorious with Sari Dore. I wore Notorious on my cheekbone as a contour. I am still a beginner in contouring so pardon me if it doesn’t look that good. The blush I am wearing is Illamasqua Hussy which I currently love a lot. If you could notice, I am also wearing Notorious on my eyelids. I applied Notorious on top of my eyeshadow color lightly. The eyeshadow I am using is Chanel Enigma (Asia/Euro baked version, applied wet).

Final Thought:

Chanel Notorious gives a very nice shadow into my cheek. I am happy that my cheekbone shows  better with this product. It’s a true collector product; if you like Chanel makeup, you must buy this one! Sari Dore is a great orange lipstick that brighten up the whole look. This is worth a look if you’re looking for coral lipstick with satiny finish.

Luxasia Warehouse Sale 2012 Haul

Hi Hi!

I will be posting a quick post about my haul at Luxasia Warehouse Sale 2012.

I found out about this warehouse sale from Michelle from Ice Frost Diary‘s blog. I missed this event last year so I definitely would not want to miss this event again.

The sale was mainly about perfume. There are too many brands of perfume to mention; Chloe, Marc Jacob, Balenciaga, Hermès, Prada, Annick Goutal, acqua di parma, etc. The make up brands are Burberry, Guerlain, RMK, Anna Sui. There are many french skincare brands too!

Here’s a quick snap of my haul:

My hauls are mainly Burberry makeup product. The eyeshadows are at $15, The lipstick was at $20, Concealer was at $25, Lip liner was at $12. The non make up item I bought from Burberry is Burberry The Beat Perfume. This was sold at $49 (50ml)

I also picked Guerlain Emillio Pucci Terra Azzura at $50. I am so happy that finally I am getting this at a more reasonable price. I believe this was retailed at more than $100. I also picked up the nail polish at $12.

I hope to review these makeup items soon. I really want to use my Burberry products as soon as possible and see how much I like them 🙂
