This is what I got from the collection, plus some lipsticks that i want to try :)


- little update: Mario Badescu

Hohoho I got this for my going-away-present from my friends :) I havent really play with it because I have to put it in my suitcase right away (im in the process of packing). Packing has not been productive tho' :(

Although i never expect to get gift(s), but im happy to get this palette because there are a lot of people who have been raving about this product. Cant wait till I settle down in my new house!!

Oh! and I received an email from Mario Badescu to receive some samples that might be suitable for my skin. I cant wait to get those too! hohoho im looking forward to try out Mario Badescu skincare line, because if its suitable for my skin I would totally change my skincare routine. this is so much cheaper than Clarins and even Keihl's.

mario badescu


after watching this:, i am dying to try the product! haha so ofcourse, i ordered it today thru phone at nordstrom and asked my sis to pick up the product for me.

so i did get the drying lotion ( and i get one of their eyecream ( im so excited to try it!

However, i was not happy with the description that nordstrom gave! here's the comparison from the two websites:

from mario badescu website:
Improve the delicate eye skin’s hydration levels with our greaseless, lightweight eye gel formulated with softening Ceramides and nourishing Herbal Extracts. Diminishes puffiness and tired eyes. Store in the fridge for a soothing morning eye treatment.
INGREDIENTS: Ceramides (and) Cholesterol,Herbal Extract,Water,Glycerin,Silicone,Propylene Glycol,Diazolidinyl Urea (and) Methylparaben (and) Propylparaben,Triethanolamine
from nordstrom website:
Containing all natural ceramides and alpha hydroxy acid, this lightweight eye gel will hydrate, moisturize and smooth fine lines and wrinkles. Store in the refrigerator for a cooling eye treatment to reduce puffiness. Gently pat small amount under and around outer corners of eyes, day or night.

of course I will trust more than nordstrom!! and the purpose of buying this eyecream is because i need something that will reduce fine lines around my eyes area. but i definitely bought the wrong product. haha its always good to have this though, in case i wake up with a puffiness/dark circle.

but when i settled down in Carlsbad, i will purchase this: CERAMIDE HERBAL EYE CREAM
This easily absorbed, non-greasy eye cream is made with a blend of Vegetable, Carnation and antioxidant Rose Hips Oil. Reduces the look of dry, tired eyes and helps smooth out fine lines and wrinkles to keep the delicate eye area looking moist and youthful. :D :D

I have been invited to come to do make over at MAC counter at Nordstrom today. However, when I got there the MA said that MAC is so behind, thus they have to postpone the make up session for me. I cannot do that because I thought my sayang will be done with work early (he always does come earlier every Friday). So I decided to just cancel the appointment and just pre-order for the upcoming MAC collection.

Then, I walked around Nordstrom, its pretty busy because they have this beauty event going on. I passed by Kiehl's counter to check out the Acai skincare line. Then, the SA approached me and she was not excited about the product. So, I am like "oh may be I should have just tried it some other time". Then, she over me this hand wax massage, and i ended up doing it just because i have nothing to do and i dont want my trip to be such a waste. While she's doing the hand thingy, I looked around and I saw this Acai skincare set, and from then on i cant take my eyes off those red box that is filled with red bottles and some extra gifts. Long story short I ended up buying them! It turned out to be $140++ (without tax), but whatever I really want to try this anyway and I am actually bored with my skincare routine.

After that, I walked further down, and shi seido representative is trying to sell their skin product to me. As my last trip to shi seido counter had changed my life with their mascara base, I cant pass this offer. But the MA is not very sincere doing my make up, and i am not impressed by her work. So I ended up by just buying one lipgloss (rose toffee). Its pretty! but its just a lipgloss. Then I went home! because I literally spent $300 today at nordstrom!

ooohhh!! My sister bought me some MAC Mineralized blushes from the grand duos collection at the CCO! Hohohoh Im super happy with the discounted product! Thanks to ceyun!

In a week, I will be moving to Carlsbad, California. Its a very small city in between Los Angeles and San Diego. Since I cannot find a job (or I can say that I am lazy and discourage), I do not have a permit to stay in the United States, unless I go back to school. Dont get me wrong, I dont go back to school again just to stay in the US, my parents keep pushing me to go to a diamond school. They have been wanting me to go to a diamond school after I have completed my Associate Degree (3 years ago). Therefore, I am going to Carlsbad to pursue my future at Gemology Institute of America.

In the beginning of the week, I feel extremely sad, mainly because I have to left my sayang here. not only that I am sad, I am very scared if there's going to be something between us. I know I have to trust and have faith in him, but everybody knows that long distance relationship is not easy, but in the mean time I am feeling stronger.

Anyway, I am very excited about our one week trip before we will be apart! All things have been planned out roughly. I think the most exciting thing is going to be on the 20th of October! It is my 2nd anniversary with my sayang and it is going to be a day when we are going to disney land!! But I am really looking forward to it because it is actually my first trip with my sayang :)

OMG! I want to try this skincare line so bad now. I am super bored with my skincare routine; I have been using Clarins Bright Plus Line for more than 2 years now, and I am really tempted to purchased all this. Plus, this so much cheaper than my Clarins skin care, and Acai Berry is "booming" nowadays. Its recommended by a lot of actress like Oprah.

However, I have tons of back ups for my Clarins! Everytime my mom come to visit me in the US, she bought a whole new sets because in Asia is so much cheaper! Haizzz lesson of the day, I should have finish one thing before buying more product! :P but once I finished all the clarins I will be purchasing these babies! or at least before I left the US for good!
