Another Fashionesedaily Event

Yup, another contest from Fashionesedaily. Well, not so much a contest actually. More like a survey and first 100 responders are invited to this event. Oh, I love this forum so much!

Yes girls, this is another contest for you….

PT. Pulau Mahoni and Fashionese Daily would like to invite 100 FDers to attend the beauty workshop/consultation session and free make over by your favorite brands (Clinique, MAC and Estee Lauder) on Saturday, 31st October, 2009 at Main Atrium Plaza Senayan.

Each participant will also get a Rp. 550,000,- worth beauty package consisting products from Clinique, MAC, Estee Lauder and Sean John Perfume.

So I went to Plaza Senayan today. The dress code is black. I don't have a lot of black outfit, to be honest. And I hate wearing all black from head to toe. To me, it feels like attending a funeral. So, anyway, I put on my black top and black-and-white skirt. Too bad I forgot to take picture. Oh well..

There were three counters where we can get make over: Estee Lauder, MAC and Clinique. And FD crews already put my name to get make over at Estee Lauder counter, randomly. I was kinda hoping I can get make over at MAC and thinking about asking to switch counter. But, on second thought, I'll just give Estee Lauder a try. So here's my FOTD. Products used? Don't ask. I didn't really pay attention. Haha..

Okay, a quick take. The foundation and powder don't really cover my complexion. You can still see my zits and dark spots all over (My skin has been acting up real bad lately. Hate that). And after spending few hours at the mall, my face started to get oily. Meh.

I love the EOTD. Especially the highlight color looks pretty, me likey. A my eyebrows are the best part. I wish I could do my eyebrows like that. It's too bad the lady who gave me the make over didn't put any concealer under my eyes. Since I have very dark under eye area, I will never put on dark color on my eyes without any concealer on my under eye because it'll make me look like a panda.

Blush and lipstick are just fine. I'm not really interested with those. Although I love the fact that the pink blush could really appear on my cheeks. Usually pink is not really my color. It'll automatically turns peachy because of my warm undertone. But this one stays pink on my cheeks and quite pigmented too, I must say. As for the lipstick. The lady who gave me my makeover told me that this lipstick has moisturizer in it. Well, I still feel a little dry although it's still acceptable. Oh, and it lasts through my meal and everything. Not bad.

And of course, the most fun part: Goody bag!

I got samples of Estee Lauder skincare and inside the pouch there are samples of MAC Cleanse Off Oil, Prep+Prime Base Skin Visage, Clinique Superbalm Moisturizing Gloss, Turnaround Concentrate (have no idea what it is) and Estee Lauder and DKNY perfumes. The DKNY one is for men, so I gave it to my boyfriend.

And I dropped by at Ratu Plaza to meet my boyfriend there. Went to Outback for snack time. We got cheesy french fries and my favorite dessert in Outback, Chocolate Thunder from Down Under.. Yuuummm...

Anyway, I lowered the resolutions of my pictures. Boy, how those pictures look ugly now.

My NYX Prize

So my NYX prize is here. Well, actually, I went to NYX Studio at Plaza EX to take it. I haven't tried any of it, so I just post pictures here. The set comes in a little transparent clutch and inside I got:

NYX single e/s 'Frosty Lilac'
NYX round lipstick 'Pandora'
NYX sheer gloss 'Bronze'
NYX lip liner pencil 'Auburn'

Frosty Lilac is a sheer light purple color and yes, frosty. I don't know if this color will ever show up on my dark lids. Maybe I'll need like a colored base. Jumbo eye pencil, maybe? Okay, that's just an excuse to shop.. haha.

Pandora, again a pinkish purple color. I never have this color before. Gotta try it soon and hope it looks good on me.

The sheer lips gloss, I haven't opened it yet. But just take a quick look an the packaging. Kinda weird, though. Reminds me of that ointment for sore muscle I usually use.. LOL. Wonder how to apply it. With a brush, maybe?

Last one, the lip pencil. Well, this is the only thing that I've tried. It's in the name, Auburn. Kinda like a brownish red.

And my FOTD for today.

Clinique moisturizer
Garnier sunblock
Fyrinnae Powder Primer
Revlon Colorstay concealer 'Medium'
NARS Loose Powder 'Beach'
Fyrinnae Mineral Finishing Powder: Oil Control
PAC Loose e/s 'White Frost'
MAC Powder Blush 'Margin'

Majolica Majorca Lash Expander Frame Plus
MUFE Aqua Eyes '1L'

Benefit Full Finish Lipstick 'Lady's Choice'
Stila Lip Glaze 'Kitten'

Told ya I love Stila lip glaze and gonna buy more colors. And stila answered my prayer and the answer is Stila Holiday 2009 Lip Glaze Collection.

You get this set for $38. I think that's a steal!

October Haul and Pre New Year Resolution

With the arrival of my stilas, it's official that all of my PO stuff are here. *Yayy!!* So here's this month's haul.

  • Makeup Forever HD Foundation shade '128 - Almond'
  • Stila Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer shade '01'
  • MAC Face and Body Foundation shade 'C4'
  • NARS Loose Powder 'Beach'
  • Stila Lip Glaze Collection
  • Sariayu Eyeshadow 'Reog'
  • Sariayu Eyeshadow 'Merak Kasmaran'
Except for the Sariayu eyeshadows, which is local brand, I have to CPed all those products, like, halfway around the world. Simply because, I can't find those in my own country. Well, except for Makeup Forever but the shade that I ordered is Sephora exclusive and there's no Sephora here, so.. well.
Anyway, it's almost the end of 2009. And I made a promise to myself that:
  1. I will not buy anything makeup related until the end of this year.
  2. And I will make 2010 as The Year of Brush. I'll start collecting brushes.
I hope I can fulfill my promise. I mean it's only two more months to go right? Well, except that I snapped yesterday and ordered Urban Decay Deluxe Shadow Box. But that's it.. Oh, and Stila CanCam Palette. I can't help it since they're so pretty. I mean, look:

How could you not fall in love with them?? And Sephora is having Friend and Family Sale so I don't want to miss it.

But really, those palette are gonna be my last makeup-related purchase for this year. *crossing fingers*

Fashionesedaily NYX FOTD Contest

Long time no post. Phew.. First of all, I had a problem with any google-related site. I couldn't open my e-mail and even sign in into this blog. That's why, I can't post anything here. Anyway, I finally changed my browser. It used to be Mozilla and now it's Google Chrome. Since my knowledge around computer is total suck, I hope I won't find such problem anymore.

Anyway, a week ago Fashionesedaily and NYX held an FOTD Contest.

NYX and Fashionese Daily would like to invite our forum members to post their best FOTD picture and win lots of goodies from NYX! Here are the rules:

E-mail address:
Makeup theme: (e.g. green field, sexy smokey, bright lights - be as creative as you want in naming your makeup theme!)
NYX Product used:

Come on girls, show us your perfectly blended makeup and win the prizes!

Honestly, I didn't have a lot of NYX in my traincase and I don't think one chrome eyeshadow could help in this contest. So I did visit NYX counter and purchase some.

And my FOTD that I submit.
Makeup theme: Rusty Java.
Not the best theme, I know. But I couldn't find other name, so I went with the name of the eyeshadows I used.

Nothing special with the colors, I know. So I added double winged eyeliner. I saw that kind of winged eyeliner, like, years ago, in InStyle magazine, if I'm not mistaken. I could only submit one picture. So the picture above is the one that I submitted. And here's the detail on the eyes.

Products used:

NYX Liquid Makeup 'Medium Beige'
NYX Loose Face Powder 'Medium Beige'

NYX Trio Eyeshadows 'TS12 Golden/ Rust/ Walnut Bronze'
NYX Chrome Eyeshadow 'Java'
MUFE Aqua Eyes 1L
Revlon Colorstay Liquid Liner
PAC Loose Eyeshadow 'White Frost'

NYX Lipgloss with Megashine 'French Kiss'

And the result came out yesterday: I WON!! Yayyy....!!!
