So I seem to have gained a bit of a reputation as a Blush Queen *adjusts my little tiara* 😉 so, I thought it might be nice to share with you the story of my first blush.
My very first blush was a L’oreal Blush Delice blush in Rosy Cheeks. This was back in the days when I was young, foolish and had less choices than we do now. I had only one blush then and I used it every single day that I applied makeup. But I’m happy to say that the L’oreal Blush Delice blushes have to this day, remained one of my favourite blushes! (So I must have done something right!)
The texture of the L’oreal Blush Delice is par exellance and the shimmer is lovely but not over the top. I used to use the brush that was included in the package which served its purpose well, although it was a little hard to control some times. Incidentally, Rosy Cheeks is still my favourite colour of all the colours that have been released by L’oreal. It is the PERFECT rose pink and imparts the PERFECT colour to simulate blushing cheeks.
Yes, it was love then and it still is love now. And look, here’s a picture of the very first blush I have ever owned (and the very first blush I’ve ever nearly finished)!
The cover is broken but I keep it anyway and I use it from time to time. Its a reminder to me of what things used to be and how they should be i.e. I really should try to enjoy and finish up some of the stuff I have

I picked up the Etude House Eye Secret eyeshadow on a whim to make up a purchase of RM50. Its one of those things 😛 I was surprised however when I actually rather like it!
The Etude House Eye Secret eyeshadow is the one with the faceted surface and the metallic shimmery colours. As I previously said when I saw the Etude House collection, I preferred the look and feel of the Eye Secret to the Petit Darling eyeshadows. They felt nicer and looked better.
The colour I got was OR201 (Secret Orange). Now, don’t be turned off at the thought of orange eyeshadow. I used to be too. “Orange?! Who wears Orange Eyeshadow?!” I’d exclaim in horror. Ah, but now I do, because Secret Orange is NOT orange, but a lovely peach!
Here’s how to wear a light orange or peach eyeshadow – use it all over your lids to perk up tired looking eyes with a black shadow smudged near your lashline. Don’t ask me how, it just works. I wore it to work one day after staying up all night reading and I had people saying how fresh I looked even when I felt half dead.
Immediately, I felt Secret Orange endearing itself to me! Continue Reading ►
A common lament is that the Louis Vuitton Monogram is over done with so many copies in the streets. Truth be told though, I rather like the Monogram but on small items – wallets or maybe the Speedy 25 which is the one I have. It was also the only one I could afford at the time, but that’s a different story eh? 😉 LV has made me blink at some of their most recent designs.
However this new collaboration between Louis Vuitton and Takashi Murakami is making me blink more than once. Takashi Murakami was also the designer who brought us the colourful LV monogram bags (Multicolore) and the cherry blossom series.
This time, he placed the iconic Louis Vuitton monogram on a camouflage background canvas. One word – EEPS! But then I’m not a fan of camouflage anything at the best of times so I’m not going to be the best judge of this.

No updates today because I have a policy of not working on my birthday and that includes blogging!
I’ll be back soon with more posts (the arsenal is building up!) but for now, why don’t you check out some previous reviews or look to see what are the featured brands I have reviewed thus far. Or maybe even take the poll on the sidebar.
Oh and I got this very unexpected gift package in the mail from Jojoba who is a darling and who has been my local makeup buddy for a couple of years now pre-blogging (even if we have different tastes on some things – variety is the spice of life after all!).
It was the Chanel Tweed Blush in Tweed Corail and her favourite Clarins Double Fix mascara that makes all mascara waterproof! I tested the Chanel Tweed blush today – gorgeousness! Thanks girl! 😀
I’ll be back soon!
