Haul - Shiseido, Chanel, Lancome, Rimmel

So... a few more items I've picked up recently...

Shiseido The Makeup Lip Gloss in G26 Peach Melba

Shiseido Luminizing Lip Gloss in BE201

Made in USA

The two next to each other:

Lancome Le Crayon Poudre Eyebrow Pencil in Taupe

Powder Pencil for the Brows

Made in Germany

Chanel Coco Mademoiselle EDT

Rimmel London 320 Rapid Ruby Nail Polish

Swatched once.

Sorry about the messy application! It is quite pigmented and very fast drying. It states to be a 'one coat' polish and I think you could pull it off if you put on a thicker layer!

Neutrogena Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover Review

Here it is...

 The back:

Made in Canada

- nice packaging - simple & is plastic
- dual phase
- when you shake it up it takes a while to seperate
- gentle on the eyelids & doesn't sting or irritate (unlike Estee Lauder's eye makeup remover for me!)
- relatively inexpensive
- available in many places

- doesn't remove my eye makeup quickly - it takes a while

Would I repurchase?
Although it is great value for money and does a decent job, I am still going with Shiseido's eye and lip makeup remover over this because I find it to be more effective, so I will be using that but I would recommend this as a cheaper alternative.

What makeup remover do you use?

Etude House Nail Polish PK006 swatch

Here is a swatch of Etude House's nail polish
in PK006

It is on the top of the cap. How many coats? Too many!! About 3-4 I can't even remember. It takes a while to dry too...

So... I gave the nail polish away to my mother lol. She gets so much stuff from me it's insane haha... probably never needs to buy anything again. But of course she does! ^^ Shopaholic!!


Here's what I cooked as part of dinner for me & DH (rest in peace Ong Xa yeu dau) the other day.

It is kho qua (aka bittermelon) with eggs in it. I named it 'Kho Qua Hai Truong'

Yes, I made it up. But it looks good right? :D

What have you guys been up to?

Have you tried Etude House nail polishes before? What did you think?
