:: ELFs + Drugstore + NARS Haul!!::


 sorry for the collage pic..it's just a teaser~;p
but can u guess those items there?? teehee;p

here's the actual pic..

these are my order from ELF, Drugstore and Sephora through spree.



ELF
ELF Studio Lip Stain in 'First Date'
ElF Studio Contouring Blush and Bronzing Powder
ELF Studio Blush - Peachy Keen and Candid Coral
ELF Studio High Definition Powder

I've ordered these when 'EGSTUDIOX' coupon was available where all of ELF Studio item got 50% discount off, so it's half of the price;)

ELF High Definition Powder
 

*look at the ingredients.. familiar??hehe
* i already tested it and swatched it so the plastic lid is half opened
 
*the smooth texture
 

Overall, i'm liking it so far..in facts, i used this to set my foundation and concealer since it contained silica which mainly known for oil control.
Plus, it's a bargain and comparable to high-end products out there.

ELF STUDIO CONTOURING BLUSH AND BRONZING POWDER
ELF Studio Blushes




*click on the pic to enlarge to see the ingredients 

*PEACHY KEEN*
*i love this shade..a nice pinch of peach

*Candid Coral*

*Tickled Pink - which i got from previous spree;)


::SWATCHES::


 

all the colours are nice but not that pigmented. however, the colour is buildable. i don't like 'Tickled Pink' because it's not the pink that i want, is a bit of dirty-mauvy-pink for me so i gave it to my mom;) however, 'Candid Coral' and 'Peachy Keen' is a keep! i just love these two shades~
As for contouring and bronzing (too lazy to spell out the name full;/), i like the blush colour but not the bronzing..it's really look dark on my skin so i didn't use it. i get it because most of reviews said that this is a dupe for NARS Orgasm and Laguna Beach. oh well~ but i like the blush tho..it's very pigmented and nice pinky peach colour;)!!

ELF STUDIO LIP STAIN ' First Date'


 
:: ingredients::

::SWATCHES::

 the lip stain, if use alone without the gloss will look matte and looks great if u opt for pin-up classic look. this shade is not too bright or too sheer but it's great to pop out lip colour especially used with gloss.
lip stain is one way to build colour naturally on your lips expecially if you have dull, pale and discoloured lips;)
it has a lot of shades to choose from which may suits for your own individual liking;)

DRUGSTORE
REVLON Colorstay Foundation - Buff and Sand Beige
MILANI Blush in Luminious

REVLON Colorstay Foundation


* Buff and Sand Beige*


*what it says*


*compare to my MAC SFF NC20
 



None of REVLON foundation looks close to my MAC SFF NC20 which i begin to wonder 'why'. All the reviews says that BUFF and SAND BEIGE is the close match to NC20 skintone but i was kinda dissapointed with the shade that i chose.
BUFF is a a little bit fair to my skin tone and make me look like i'm wearing a mask. Kinda regret purchasing it but i'm still working out with this foundation incase it will work it's wonder later or i get fairer..hehe;p
SAND BEIGE is the kind of the closest to MAC SFF NC20 and its match my skintone well. I grabbed these one utmost compare to BUFF and im saving my MAC SFF ;)
true to its name, it's really COLORSTAY..i have to apply my foundation fast because it dried easily. And what i like aboutt it is that, the coverage! The coverage is great and heavy (depend on how u want it hehe)..sometimes i skipped my concealer step because this foundation do the job alone.

* and still i don't know how to make BUFF works for me. Maybe it would suits someone with fairer skintone, perhaps NC15.
so, im letting this go :
if anyone is interested, the price is  RM50 -non including postage
(used only once and for swatches about 98% left,actual price is RM65, shade is not availabe in MALAYSIA)
STRICTLY FOR MALAYSIAN BUYERS
FOR MIRI-an, COD can be arranged. 
drop me a comment or email if u r interested;)
UPDATED 17.06.10 :: i decided to keep the foundie incase it might b useful later, plus, there is no buyer so far it's kinda long and afraid it might defect;)

MILANI BLUSH - LUMINOUS

 
 
 *very small..just a palm size and suits for travelling

Reviews said that this is a dupe for NARS Orgasm and MAC Mineralize Blush 'Dainty'. this colour is  nice but it appears quite sheer on my face and does not show well which im quite frustrated. It has a soft touch of pink with gold hue which sometimes shows in my cheeckbone and i find it a bit of 'eeeww..disco ball~'..im not really liking it but it's just okay for me..nothing to rave about. 
and MAC Mineralize Blush 'Dainty' is waaayyy better than this.)

LAST BUT NOT LEAST..
the blush that i've been wanting of all time

tadaaaa..

SEPHORA:
NARS BLUSH 'DEEP THROAT'

 
*ingredients*


side by side with ELF Studio blush..
emm..quite similar packaging..*thinking*


 quite similar huh??

:: Swatches::

MILANI and NARS


 
Milani 'Luminous' appears sheer on my skin and the colour is not that pigmented compares to NARS.

OMG~ above all of these..im totally in LOVE with my NARS 'DEEP THROAT'..it just so beautiful and pigmented. i just love on how it shows on my cheeck..a nice flushed of blush..looks so natural;) i highly recommended this!! although the price is a bit expensive ($25 = RM100++) but it's really worth it if u want to invest in a good blush (didn't i tell u, im a sucker for Blushes!!i just can't get enough~  this haul alone i purchase four blushes and more coming up..im crazyy!!)

I want to get more NARS Blushes (see my Wishlist)!!

till then,
xoxo
