EOTD: Soft Green Smokey Eyes

Happy Friday everyone! What are you planning to do for this Labor Day long weekend? This year went by so fast...I can't believe August is gone +_+!!! Even though it's still toasty warm here in southern California, I am so ready for fall - I decided to do a soft green smokey eyes!

Products Used:
Shiseido Natural Eyebrow Pencil in Natural Black (review here)
MAC Paint Pot in Painterly (review here)
NYX eyeshadow in Smokie Mountain
Urban Decay Naked2 (Foxy, Bootycall, Verve)
Laura Mercier Baked Eye Colour in Black Karat (from this kit, also used in here)
NYX Slide On Pencil in Pure White
Sephora Flashy Liner waterproof in Deep Black (review here)
Koji Dolly Wink liquid eyeliner in Deep Black (review here)
Maybelline Falsies Flared waterproof mascara

I really liked how it turned out. I finally be able to play with NYX Smokie Mountain as I got it long time ago and didn't really get to use it. NYX Smokie Mountain with Laura Mercier Black Karat is like golden jungle shade. It gives the eyes pop without looking over the top. 

Random picture of the day: these are sooo yummy (*^_^*)

Have a wonderful and relaxing evening and Happy long weekend! 

Koji Dolly Wink Liquid Eyeliner

Koji Dolly Wink Liquid Eyeliner in Deep Black

When it comes to liquid eyeliner, I am no expert. I prefer pencil eyeliners or gel/cream eyeliners as they are easier to control. Last month when my sister visited me, she brought me this Dolly Wink liquid eyeliner. I've been wanted to try this Japanese liquid eyeliner for quite a long time because I've heard/read so many good reviews. And I was pretty happy I gave this a try!

Shiseido Natural Eyebrow Pencil - Natural Black

I LOVE this eyebrow pencil from Shiseido! It was truly one of my favorite 'new-find' beauty products for the past month! I got the shade Natural Black (GY901), a grayish black that's great for my natural black hair. It goes on super natural and beautiful like I have natural fuller eyebrows. ^^

MAC Studio Finish Concealer SPF 35 (NC30)

MAC Studio Finish Concealer SPF 35 (NC30) 7g/.24 US OZ 
($18.00 as of  August/2012)

Even since I used Make Up For Ever's Mat Velvet + foundation (my review here, it's still my favorite foundation!), I found myself  skipping concealer quite often because of Mat Velvet+'s great coverage. But in summer when I want less foundation or go foundation-free and use BB cream instead, Studio Finish Concealer from MAC works just great. Plus it has SPF 35, which adds another protection to sun spots or any hyperpigmentations!

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain (Rendezvous and Sweetheart)

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain
Top to bottom: 040 Rendezvous, 025 Sweetheart

Last week I reviewed 3 Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Honey, Darling, and Cherish. I love them so much that I got 2 more in early this week from CVS^^ (they're running a great deal this week! run get them if you want to try these, it's the time!^^) I was surprised that these balm stains didn't receive as much hype as the lip butters, seriously, these balm stains are way way better in my opinion. They have better and longer (well...way longer!!!) lasting power, pigmentations are wonderful, and they even hydrate and moisturize the lips better than lip butters! I also love the packaging, the minty scent and the superior "stain" performance.

Nail of the Day: Rimmel Gold Silk + Sally Hansen Fairy Tale Ivory

This is what's on my nails right now  

Even though summer is all about bright and colorful nail shades, it's sometimes too much for me to maintain my manicure especially when I am out and about. I want my nails to look neat and polished yet don't want to worry if they go well with my outfits or anything. So here they are! Rimmel's Gold Silk is super long lasting. It gives the nails a beautiful glow and it's neutral! And I added another layer of Sally Hansen's Fairy Tale Ivory for a bit of peach color and sparkles. They go very well together ^^ and then another coat of Seche Vite top coat and I'm ready to go~!

What's on your nail now?

Christian Dior Diorskin Forever Compact Foundation SPF 25 PA++

I have dry skin, and not a fan of powder foundation, but this Diorskin Forever Compact from Christian Dior is an exception for me! My sister introduced this powder foundation to me about a couple years ago and I loved it! Even though I still prefer liquid foundation for everyday makeup basis, but when I am in a rush and need something super quick or when I am out for a longer period of time and need some touch-ups, this is it! It also has SPF 25, PA++ which is another great plus! It's super easy and quick to apply and it provides a pretty nice coverage. Since the weather is getting a lot warmer, I started to use this more often. (my skin was too dry in the winter time so I usually skip this and save it for the warmer months) I believe his product has been changed to a newer packaging (here) which I think is nicer! I haven't got the chance to get the newer pkg as this is one of my stock-up items I just started to use^^

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain (Honey, Darling, Cherish)

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain
Top to bottom: 001 Honey, 010 Darling, 015 Cherish

These have been my go to everyday lip products for the past month especially the 001 Honey shade and I absolutely LOVE it! I thought I'd never give up my NARS velvet matte lip pencil (here), but I was wrong. These balm stains are my new favorite, yes, they're that good! They looked and packaged very similar to Clinique's Chubby Stick lip colour balm or tarte's LipSurgence lip tint, yet in a more affordable price tag with fabulous quality! I was very impressed! (retail for $8.99, I got mine for $5.39 each after 40% off sale at Rite Aid^^)

Last Friday I got my very first Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in the shade Strawberry Shortcake. (my haul here) I tried it and liked how it felt on my lips as well as the butter like application that I went back and bought another two shades, Peach Parfait and Lillipop.
