Lord saveth me.

Well, the impending doom that are my finals are looming and I am struggling to focus on revision. 😦 all I can think about are all the things I’m going to do after them. I really didn’t do as well in my mid terms and assignment as I wanted too. I really should have worked a lot harder. 😦 Oh well, too late to dwell upon what’s done.

No time other than exam time does one get more religious. I swear only a higher power could save me now.

I guess I better get back to studying. I will blog more in about a weeks time when this is all over. Will be blogging about clarisonic, clarins, my skin, the plight of dry lips and a bunch of other things.

But here, have a peep at some pretty lipsticks I picked up from back to M.A.C. (If you haven’t seen it from my instagram )

The top is pink nouveau and the bottom is rebel. Lovvveeee both these colours. I’m getting really obsessed with lipsticks at the moment. It’s probably also because I solved my constant dry lips problem. 😛

Till next week! If you aren’t already, follow me on instagram: thongadong. You’ll just see more frequent little updates 🙂

MAC Lipstick: Flamingo and Chatterbox

Hello beautiful people! Did you guys have a lovely weekend? I had my mid-terms over the weekend and I definitely messed up one of them. :X

Anyway, about a week ago, I decided to check out the MAC counter near my Yoga place (which will be up in a new post soon). I keep going to the lipstick section and swatching colours that I like and I keep being attracted by the Orange Collection. After 2 days of swatching, I decided to purchase Flamingo from the Orange collection and Chatterbox from the normal range. Although, I was a little unsure about Chatterbox. But, all I can say is I am OBSESSED with both these colours! They are both very wearable and forgiving as well. As a person with the plight of dry lips, most lipstick show the horrid condition of my lips and just make me not ever want to wear lipsticks. I know that most people have found the MAC lipsticks formula to be drying, but I have found that that doesn’t apply to me. YAY! 😀

Anyway, on to the photos!

MAC lipsticks

When I had initially swatched Flamingo, it looked for Coral to me but it does on like a sweet pink. It does have a hint of coral and the lipstick does give more coverage than the average lustre finish. It is also probably the only lustre lipstick that I really like.

The MAC Chatterbox Lipstick is a really pretty pink. I have fairly pigmented lips, so I have been searching for a pretty pink that looks fairly natural. It is a neutral pink that I think would look good on most or all skin types. It is a creamy lipstick which keeps it from being too drying. I love this colour as it stands out but isn’t overwhelming. Although I like my brights, I have been trying to find more wearable day time lipsticks.

Overall, I highly recommend both colours. I know that Flamingo is sold out in most MAC stores in the US, so I am going to buy an extra for myself and one for my sister when I head to the MAC store again. 🙂

I hope this was useful to someone. If you like this post, follow me on wordpress or bloglovin’!

Thank you! xx

MAC Haul

Over the weekend I decided to pop into MAC to look at some make up and to get a new blush. I somehow ended up with more than just blush. Oops… I had a really lovely MAC sales person help me pick out the colours I wanted. I think her name is Janty, she works at the Tangs Beauty Bar MAC counter.

I ended up picking up:

  • Pink Swoon – Sheertone Blush
  • Modern Mandarin – Satin Powder Blush
  • Nude On Board – Pro LongWear Bronzing Powder
  • Naked Liner – Lip Pencil

Bronzing Powder

MAC Haul 5

I’ve used the bronzer and I really like it. Although I found that a little goes a long way. Decided to give this a go since I hit the pan for my  Benefit Hoola. I found that it is a little more orange than Hoola though.

Modern Mandarin is my favourite blush out of the two. It just goes with my everyday make up and I don’t have to think too much about how I’ve done the rest of my face. haha. I’ve been wanting a more orange toned blusher for a while. Morange

Love love love this colour! So gorgeous! It looks a little more orange in real life.
