The MAC Dame Edna collection is meant to come out today on the MAC website but so far not yet. It has been out since last week on the US site though, so some people were already able to get it. Here are few swatches I found on the world wide web! :)

Kanga Rouge Gladiola Coral Polyp

Possum Nose Pink Splendid Hot Frost

Asiatique Varicose Violet

Wisteria Eye Trio

Royal Tour Eye Trio

I know I already have enough pinks and I lack in the coral lip department so I'm eye-ing Possum Nose Pink or Splendid l/g and Coral Polyp l/s. Although Gladiola and Hot Frost look really pretty >_< .Varicose Violet also looks like a really nice and unique nail polish - as unique as its name probably! :P

Dame Edna for MAC

Today was pretty hectic! I woke up late (11ish), had lunch, delivered a gifts, went to salon with my sis to have our eyebrows threaded, had a nice massage, n rushed home at 6 to get ready for the party at 7!

I put makeup on my sister, then myself, and once she was ready, I put some on my mum. Everyone complemented my works and that made me really happy. Its because I know I'm not that good at applying makeup yet, I just keep practicing. And I really enjoy it as you can see on my blog! I'll post the looks I made later on. :)

At half 7, my family friends came. It was really good to see them as I've been away for ages! Food was really good. Most of them was prepared by us as we hosted the party at our place, and some food was brought in pot-luck style. Really yummy dinner. I'll miss this food when I go back to London! After dinner, we went off to another family friends' house to have dessert. Left a bit before midnight. I got to talk to my honey till early in the morning and catch up on Skip Beat! too. :)

Christmas Eve

Wednesday, December 24, 2008 • 3 comments

I bought a few stuff from the Chill collection on my last day in central London, and also a few eyeshadows from the duty free at Heathrow airport. For stuff in the permanent line, I found that its best to wait to get it at the airport if I will be dropping by there soon as items are about 15% off. With limited edition stuff its different though as they tend to sell out quickly at the airport.

From the Chill collection:
Snowscene lipglass - soo pretty and sparkly! really unique
Wintersky e/s - I plan to use this on New Year's Eve

From perm line:
Goldmine e/s - I've been lemming this for AAGESS
Cork e/s - makes a good neutral crease shadow
Copperplate e/s - a really good grey crease shadow also, would look good with Wintersky. I love its texture!!

My friends and I had an early birthday dinner for one of my friends at this Korean restaurant in Leicester Square called Corean Chilli last thursday (just after exams). The dinner was followed by karaoke. Here's the look I did for the night:

Exams just finished yesterday and so I was able to view the latest MAC collection today, called Chill. I brought my bf with me as usual - he helps me pick out which few items would be must-haves and he acts like the little voice in my head that keeps me from spending too much! However, the colours were just tooo pretty! The eyeshadows are perfect for the frosty winter season. I felt that the lipglasses were the stars of the collection though. It was so difficult to choose just one! I ended up with Wintersky eyeshadow and Snowscene lipglass. Here's what I thought of some of the items in the collection.


Vellum is a white shadow with purple duochrome that reminded me of UV-lights! :o
Wintersky is a very pretty frosty light pink - seems like its going to be a very wearable colour.
Artic Grey really tempted me... its a pretty frosty silver-taupe - if that makes sense. It reminds me of Smoke & Diamonds from the Starflash collection which I already have.
Apres-ski seems like it would be a nice crease colour. But the texture sucks! I swatched Copperplate shadow which is similar but with a much smoother texture, so I might get that one instead.
Mont Black is definitely Black Tied, but with less sparkles which were gold instead of silver. Very pretty though. But I already have Black Tied.


Icescape is sheer pale pink colour which had a slightly darker pink shine. Its super pretty. My bf and I were struck in awe once I swatched this. :P
Naked Frost is a frosty taupe shade which was also really pretty.
Frozen Dream is a frosty rosey-mauve pink colour; I thought the shade of pink was similar to Sweetie lipstick. I really wanted this lipglass though, but I was convinced I didn't need it.
Snowscene is a frosty opaque white with fine pink and blue-green reflects. The prettiest and most unique among the lipglasses IMO.

So I caved. I gave in. I promised myself I wouldn't buy any more MAC til the Heathrow Airport Duty Free. But oh well. Here's what my little black box brought me. ^__^

Red, She Said lipstick
Sugarrimmed dazzleglass

RSS is such a pretty pretty pinkish red... :) Reminds me of those old pin-up girl photos. I probably got one of the last Sugarrimmeds since not long after I ordered it from the website, it was sold out! *happydance*

A lady I met at Marks n Spencers just randomly complimented me on my makeup. She said it was really pretty, and in her words, 'Natural but nice' - hence where I got the title of this post. On the lid I had shimmery neutral eyeshadows on top of a shimmery neutral base that is Bare Study paint pot.

What do you think? :)

About 4 weeks on and I'm still contemplating about getting the Red She Said lipstick. AAhh....~~~ I think I'm going nuts. Well anyway, as promised, here's my second attempt of finding a similar red lipstick in my stash. Queen's Sin lipstick with Love Alert dazzleglass on top. ♥

...notice anything different from my previous FOTDs? :D

Close up of the lips:

Well, you can see a difference between having Queen's Sin versus Red She Said lipstick underneath Love Alert. Queen's Sin is a red lippie with red frost so appears more glittery together with Love Alert, whereas Red She Said is a pinky-red amplified cream which, well, is more creamy and looks more smooth and yummy such as here...
