[Fancies] Hello Kitty Kidrobot


Tara McPherson remixes Sanrio's pop icon in her ethereal, space vixen style in this exclusive collaboration with Hello Kitty and Kidrobot. Kitty is adorned in an aquamarine heartburst hoodie, and comes with a removable Magic Love Wand accessory.



San Francisco-based artist, Frank Kozik, teams up with Kidrobot and Hello Kitty creator Sanrio and reimagines Japan's coolest cat. The Empress, wicked in red and flashing fangs, forked feet and devilish horns, comes with appropriately malevolent accessories - a pitchfork and a spider sidekick.

Aren't these cute?  Yes it is Hello Kitty - reimagined.  They do look different from the typical cat that we all love, and I think they are rather cute!  I am actually really liking the Empress version, her horns and spider sidekick are really adorable :)

[Frowns] Tokidoki for Hello Kitty - Back in Black

Spotted the new Tokidoki for Hello Kitty exclusive limited edition collection.  I'm a fan of Tokidoki AND Hello Kitty but I am not a fan of this collection! >.<  Not a fan of the no-eyed-kitty-silhouette, not a fan of the  centered-kitty-with-bland-black-background, also not a fan of the skull-in-red-bow thing it's got going on.  Overall, not likey!

[FOTD] Light breezy day

Did everyone have a good Thanks-pig-out weekend?  Don't you just wish every week is a 4-day-weekend?  Back to work tomorrow........ yay.....

So anyway, I didn't do much today, and also didn't do much on my face =p  Let's take a look:

[Fancies] Smashbox Waterproof Shadow Liner in Starstruck (with water and oil test)

I bought the Smashbox Waterproof Shadow Liner in Starstruck during Sephora's Friends & Family sale not too long ago, and it has quickly become my favorite day time eyeliner!  This is currently limited edition and is only available on sephora.com, and you know what is unbelievable?  It is only $5!!!

A waterproof, smudge-proof eyeliner.  This long-lasting liner helps defines the eye and glides easily over the lid without pulling or tugging. The quick-dry formula sets quickly and stays put all day.

Why I like it:

[Invisalign] My 3D treatment plan (with teeth movies)!

After 3 visits to Aesthetics & Essentials Dental Group since getting my x-rays, photos, and molds, Dr Habibi finally finalized my Invisalign treatment plan!!  The plan for the top is to shave off a bit of teeth to create space so that my midline can be shifted.  The numbers in the first movie denote the amount in millimeters to be shaved off.  The plan for the bottom teeth is more straightforward - classic crowding case.  Look how my teeth will be straightened and centered!  Estimated number of aligners: 22, which is about 11 months.  Not bad at all right?  Check out my teeth movies :)

I can't believe this kit is ONLY $35.52, the Balance-N-Brighten (which by the way is in full size!) usually sells for about $31!!  I would have ordered this in a heart beat, but I need the Balance-N-Brighten in the "Fair" shade!!!!  The regular color is just too dark for me :(

[FOTD] Thanksgiving 2010

Hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving!  Instead of turkey, we had beer chicken this year.  It's fun to be different sometimes :)
tarte lock & roll Eyeshadow Duo, Bronze 1 ea

As for my Face of the Day, I decided to give the Tarte Lock n Roll 12-Hour Eye shadow in Bronze a second try since last time when I used it in my [FOTD] Sephora's Glitz & Glam Collection, it creased a lot.  Let's take a look:

[Spotted] Super adorable beauty guru *Freshblush*

Omigoodness, look who I found!  Freshblush, a super adorable beauty guru!  Don't be fooled by her young age, she applies makeup and explains all the steps like a pro!!  How cute!!  Check out her Thanksgiving tutorial, and happy turkey day!!

[Fancies] L'oreal Bare Naturale gentle lip conditioner

Remember last week when I did my Face of the Day featuring Tarte Amazonian Clay & Mascara 4-pc Starter Kit with Brush from QVC I used  L'oreal Bare Naturale gentle lip conditioner in soft blush, which I bought at CVS at 75% off!  Well I loved it SO much I went back to CVS and bought all the other colors they had left: 405 soft peach, 705 soft mica, 505 soft mauve.

I've never been big on lip products, in fact, I should probably show you my tiny sad collection of lip products.  So it's very unlike me to actually want to purchase a lip product let alone go back to the store and buy all the other colors.  Yes the awesome discount of 75% had a lot to do with the repurchasing but I wouldn't repurchase if I didn't like it, a lot.  Actually I also bought another lip product at 75% off, but that one I didn't like at all so I won't be repurchasing it even at the awesome discount.

So yes, I am really loving the L'oreal Bare Naturale gentle lip conditioner, not only is it good quality, but the packaging itself is engineered so well!  Let me tell you why:

[FOTD] Inspired by Zhang Ziyi

I came across this picture of Zhang Ziyi the other day, I just think she looks so youthful and put together here and decided to try to recreate her makeup!  No I am not saying I look like her, I am just trying to recreate the makeup she wore in this photo.

I have a dragon in my hair

You know how sometimes your hair just doesn't cooperate?  Well I didn't necessarily have a bad hair day today, I simply had 1 uncooperative piece of hair.  It for some reason had a mind of its own, and decided that it didn't want to be straight like the rest, it wants to be curly, because it wants to be a dragon!

Look, can you see?  

[Deals] Airplane-Friendly Sephora Swag

The must have for frequent travelers!

There's a difference between jetting and flying, and that difference is painfully obvious when you're traveling during the holidays. Besides the long lines and disgruntled flyers, one thing we are really looking forward to this year is the security; not only for the new pat-downs but also to show off our travel-friendly Sephora flair. We will be going through the line in style with our new getaway kit packed with a whopping 10 deluxe samples - not the usual one-time use packettes. It's enough beauty bounty to get through a long weekend looking polished and perfect while discussing family planning with your prying aunties. It's an offer you can't refuse unlike your aunt's marshmallow yams. To get yours free, see the details above or go here.


[Frowns] Smashbox Eye Beam Double-Ended Brightener

Remember back in August I had wanted to try the Smashbox Eye Beam Double-Ended Brightener? (see the post here)  And remember I actually purchased it during the Sephora Friends and Family sale?  Well, after one try (yes only one try), I decided that this is not what I thought it'd be and I returned it :(

How come? one may ask.  Well let me tell you -

[Fancies] Fancy Nancy Strawberry Parfait Antibacterial Hand Lotion at Target

Look what I found at Target!! The Fancy Nancy Strawberry Parfait Antibacterial Hand Lotion!  How cute is this!

[Frowns] Garnier Nutri-Pure Daily Exfoliating Gel Cleanser

Deep cleans & gently refines pores, leaving skin smooth and vibrant—oil-free with microbeads. Nutri-Pure, with purifying “Skin-Nutrients” gently detoxifies, leaving skin deeply clean and pure. Infuses skin with essential moisture, to prevent over-drying.

Frown!  Why I don't like it:
  • It has a very minty feel throughout and after washing.  It makes me feel like I have rubbed toothpaste all over my face >.<
  • I can't tell the effects of the exfoliating beads, or if it is oil free, or if it is moisturizing because it is so minty my face is numb from feeling anything else >.<
  • The scent is ok
  • The texture is ok
  • The only good thing I can think of is that you get a lot of product for very little money, at about < $5.

[Spotted] L'Oreal Youth Code

Yes, yet another anti aging product.... if these products really work, we'll never age!  But we won't know until we try right? =p

L'Oreal Paris Youth Code Starter System. Youth Regenerating Skincare. 10 Years of Gene Research. See smoother, youthfully luminous and rested skin emerge.

With age, your skin regenerates less quickly. Time leaves a visible imprint: signs of stress, fatigue, and aging seem to suddenly appear. After 10 years of research, L'Oreal scientists unlock the code of skin's youth by discovering a specific set of genes that are responsible for skin's natural power of regeneration. With L'Oreal's breakthrough GenActiv Technology TM, this powerful system can increase skin's power of regeneration so it regains the qualities of young skin. See smoother, youthfully luminous and rested skin emerge.
  • Youth Code Starter System contains SPF 30 Day Lotion, Day/Night Cream, Eye Cream
  • Dramatic Results.
  • Immediately, skin is smoother, deeply hydrated and wrinkle reduction begins.
  • 1 Week, signs of stress and fatigue are visible diminished and skin looks rested
  • 1 Month, lines and wrinkles are visible reduced.

[Beauty Basics] Tightlining

Tightling was not something that I knew how to do right away, it took me awhile to understand why people tightline.
You see in the above that even when you line your eyes very closely to the lashes, there are still gaps in between the lashes where you can see that the skin is showing through?  Well, to really define the eyes, we want to make sure that the lashline is completely defined, meaning the lashline is completely lined without showing any skin.  

So how do we tightline?

do I look more like my mom? or my dad?

I've always wondered, since beginning of time, well as far as I can remember that is, if I look more like my mom?  or my dad? 到底是像媽媽還是爸爸呢? hmm.... I think more people would say my dad?

常常晚上不睡覺,想些有的沒有的。  也太無聊了吧,呵呵。  LOL so random right?  My mind likes to run wild at night.  I should go to bed, get my beauty sleep. Work tomorrow -- you know how it is.  Good night!! :D

[TAG] Perfect Imperfections

There's a very popular tag called the "Perfect Imperfections" where you share things you don't like about yourself that others most likely don't know about, and things that you like about yourself.  Well, even though I wasn't tagged I still decided to participate because I think this tag is super cool!

Check out these gurus' perfect imperfections: YaYaLifestyle,  

As for me, what I don't like about myself that you most likely don't know about:
  • I've been battling with acne since my teenage years, even now that I'm in my late 20's I still fight the same battle.
