Deborah Lippmann [ I kissed a girl ]

Hot pink polish for the rainy summer in Seattle.. yes!

Currently I have been using Rehydrating base coat from Deborah Lippmann. It has been saving my super dry nails, I am surprise it actually works! I love my Ridge Filler base coat from Deborah Lippmann as provides a smooth canvas and it keeps the polishes stay longer. But I guess I might have to take a break from it for the time being :.(

I am also using a new top coat Addicted to Speed by Deborah Lippmann - I think the polish dry faster when I use this compared to the On A Clear Day top coat by Deborah Lippmann. 

[I kissed a girl] nail color is one of the five polishes from Run The World. It is smaller (as you can see from the first picture) as compared to the normal Deborah Lippmann polishes, but i think it is a smarter way as you get more colors - and I never really run out of nail polish, they just dried as time goes by.
The polish dry to be not as bright as it is on the bottle. Still a pretty neon pink color :)

NARS Kutki

[this is taken sometimes last week]

I have been taking a break on my nails because they have been SUPER dry, but now I am back - I will post more nail of the day :)

Here is the NARS Kutki polish from this summer 2012 collection. It is a true sky blue color. Flat with no shimmer. Opaque with 2 coats - streaky on the first coat. It chipped within the 2nd day on my right hand (esp. on my index finger - the most used finger of all 10 hehe). I bought the entire collection - hopefully I will post the swatches of the rest soon!

Guerlain Face Products First Impression

OMG! I cannot believe I am posting my full of acne face!! 
Anyways.. here are the demos of the products...

I think this is the best primer I have tried so far. I have not try a lot of different kind of primer because I feel like it adds an extra steps to my make-up routine. I have tried MACHourglassSmashbox so far. I hated the smashbox one, I feel it really thick - clogging my pores and does not really do anything. I think the MAC and Hourglass one is very similar.  They work, but this Guerlain one is good. It feels really light and slightly brighten my complextion as it comes out as a pink pearly gel.

I am surprise how liquidy the foundation is because normally a full coverage foundation is very thick and gel like foundation. The foundation dries really quick though so you have to work really fast. I do not know how I feel about this foundation though. It has a pretty good staying power as compared to other foundations I have tried (May be the primer helps!). As you can see from the pictures even with 2 layers it does not really cover my acne - or may be my acnes are very stubborn :(. 
I like it but I do not know if I love it.

I think I have tried so many better powder that this. My favourite is Chanel Double Perfection. In addition I am surprise on how small and light this compact is - leaving the impression that it does not contain that many products. (hahaha Kiasu)

I definitely love the smell of ALL of the products - it feels really luxurious. So, if you are allergic to fragrance, please avoid these!

Please keep in mind that we all have different skin types. I hope this helps you. :D
Let me know your thoughts!

my first Guerlain Make-up haul :)

** scream ** I am so excited to finally get this on the mail today!! 
I heard good things about guerlain products, but their prices is really "good" too.

I have oily skin, and I am currently breaking out :(
What I am looking in foundation:
- Since I currently have a lot of acne scars and some active acne, I need something that will covers ALL of them.
- Something that is long lasting and does not transferred; whenever I blot the excess oil on my skin, I usually ended up with no foundation. 
- Somehow foundations ALWAYS oxidized on my skin, making my skin looks darker and dull. Hopefully the pearly effect will brighten my skin
