Tarte Cosmetics + 30% Sale !!

Well, hello there sale! 30% for make-up is actually quite a bit.. they rarely go on sale!
One of my favorite products from Tarte is their Maracuja Creaseless Waterproof Concealer.
It never fails me when I do make up on my clients - covers under eye circle and blemishes really well on ANY skin types. It is thick enough that will flawlessly covers imperfection but light enough that actually does not really look cake-y (and does not settle within the fine lines) ! It is the best concealer that I have ever tried!

Tarte is a brand that is environmentally friendly too!
This is a screen shoot from the
and they are cruelty free and vegan!

My Clarisonics {haul + thought}

Hello! Welcome to my bathroom.. I recently purchased a new clarisonic opal. I don't really care for it at first because to me the clarisonic mia does not really do what it claims to be. It might be because I LOVE to eat unhealthy food that I keep getting acnes.. I believe eating healthy food (fruits and veggies), drinking enough water, and exercising regularly will affect your skin condition -- which I am trying VERY HARD now. Not only to improve my skin, but I am hoping to loose some weight.

Okay, back to clarisonics... So I decide to splurge my money on Clarisonic Opal because I had facial a few weeks ago and the lady applied some eye cream around the eye area and some other area with the opal -- I instantly feel sleepy... its so comfortable... and as a beauty addict I am really curious if it will actually work or not. I use clarisonic opal for eye cream - I pair it with La Mer "The Eye Concentrate"

Opal™ Sonic Infusion is a breakthrough in eye care that uses proven technology to apply serum better than manual application. Opal™ gently delivers eye serum beneath the surface and, in just one minute, provides more than 7,500 gentle micro massages to instantly hydrate, smooth and brighten the eyes when used with Anti-Aging Sea Serum.

As for my thought on clarisonic mia. I have owned Clarisonic Mia for at least more that a year, may be 2 years. I like it, I feels like I wash my face 10 times every time I used mia. I currently have so much acne problems - it is not normal - it is like I am going through puberty all over again. My mom told me that washing my face with the mia might 'activate' the pimples as it is like massaging my face and improve the blood circulation. I don't know how accurate her theory is, but since I dont really see a dramatic change after using it for so long. So I decide to give it a break. What do you think?! Do you think her theory is right? Should I use the mia again?

CLARISONIC® Mia, developed by the lead inventor of the Sonicare® toothbrush, is professional-caliber sonic skincare for cleansing wherever your lifestyle takes you. With one button and one speed, Mia cleanses so well that products absorb better, pores appear smaller and fine lines and wrinkles appear reduced. As little as one minute a day, for the best skin of your life. All the benefits of CLARISONIC®. Six times more makeup removal. Leaves skin feeling and looking younger and smoother. Gentle enough for twice-daily use. Helps reduce oily areas, dry skin patches and blemishes.

With that being said, have you try any of these? Please share your experience.. :)

Taking a break from bright color this summer? :: Chanel 559 Frenzy ::

This is part of Fall 2012 Collection as has been featured on my haul.

Among all three polishes from that collection, this is the one that got me excited the most. Below is the comparison against Deborah Lippmann Naked and Fashion. Chanel Frenzy has more grey in undertone where as both Naked and Fashion are leaning toward yellow/warm undertone. 

From far away

July 4th, 2012 Nail Art

Yay! Happy 4th of July... 

Yay! Happy day off from work hahaha 

The American Flag is the inspiration of my nail art
**this is my first attempt doing nail art, hopefully you guys can understand!!**

We are going to use these beautiful nail polishes from Deborah Lippmann
Lady Sings the Blue - this is a perfect navy blue polish because it already have silver glitters that represents the stars on the flag.
My Funny Valentine - just a normal true red polish.
Like a Virgin - gel-ly white polishes (this is the only white polish that I have), I like the gel-ly texture because it does not look like I am wearing a white-out.

For a simpler version, I just use the blue on the ring finger and red on the rest of the nails. But then, I showed to Wally (my hubby), he innocently said "where is the white?" 

So I dedice to remove red on my index and middle fingers and applied white polish then draw the red stripes. It took quite sometimes to do this! because I am not use to doing nail art, but I am quite happy with the result. What do you think? any tips for doing lines on your nail? I just used a toothpick - to line dots.
