Ah the long awaited MAC lippies. Finally I'm doing it. I thought I had more MAC lipsticks, and I think I do. I just can't find them. But anyway here are what I can find, and enjoy!

NARS Sheer Glow

Have you heard me say this before? BEST since sliced bread?

This is the best in the history of makeup. I rate foundation based on invisibility. Because the last thing I want is someone standing half a meter from me and can see foundation on my face. So I always base my rates on foundation by a. INVISIBILITY and b. decent coverage. In my hunt for the HG, I have only encountered two of them. One is Clinique Even Better foundation, the other is Nars Sheer Glow.

But perhaps Nars Sheer Glow is better. Clinique Even Better is very very moisturizing, the texture is like creamy whipped cream. It is very soft and smooth, but not runny. When you put it on is like putting moisturizer on. It gives the most gorgeous glow EVER, and has excellent excellent pigmentation and coverage. Makes skin ever so soft. But because it is so moisturizing, it will move around by mid day, and your pores will become visible because at each pore, the foundation will ball-up, forming tiny round molecules at the pores. This happens due to the oils in your pores pushing forward at the foundation. It's not a good sight.

OPI Pinking of You

Hey all, Merry Christmas to you! Do you have a white Christmas? We don't. We have a wet Christmas. -.-

Here is my new pink nail polish. It's a true pink this time, no flesh pink, no pale pink, no nude pink, no hot pink, just plain old pink. A pepto-bismol pink. And it is Pinking of You.

Natural light. 2 coats, w/o top coat.

Secrets to Beautiful Flawless Skin?

Over the years I constantly have people complimenting my skin, and asking me what I have done to it to make it so smooth and soft. Some of my girlfriends would stroke my arm in fascination and say:"Des! What do you use everyday?" Yes, I have naturally near-perfection skin apparently, and the truth is, other than my face, I don't use anything. I find lotion unacceptably annoying. I thank my dear mom for inheriting me one of the most blessed genes for women. In my mom's family, nearly everyone has great skin, and NO HAIR ON THEIR LEGS! I'm not joking, both my mom and my grandpa have no hair on their legs! Not a little bit. My mother never needs to shave, and she has very light underarm hair too. Unfortunately, I was attacked by my dad's wonderful genes*rolls eyeball*, and thus the big nose and the slight hair on my legs.

So yes, I did get my great skin from my mom. But hold on! I do have some advice for you.

Sorry guys, I disappeared AGAIN.

I have finals that are killing me. But I did make various purchases ( to sooth my heart torn by the hours spent studying for finals, you know, I'll never get these hrs back...), including the *gasp* Nars Sheer Glow Foundation, which I will hint you, I'm having a heartattack of an obsession with atm. I also plan to do my lipstick overview (FINALLY......) in the holidays, along with some favourites.

So stay alive with me!!! You'll soon hear from me.
