Halloween Masquerade: Pixie!

I dressed up twice this year for Halloween! I love dressing up, it's always so fun wearing things we don't normally do! I originally only planned one costume, so I had to take my sister's Pixie costume for my friend's murder mystery party!
My silly sis behind me lol. It was a masquerade, so I rushed to the dollar store two days before and found this mask that I thought somewhat went well with my Pixie costume!
I came up with this eye look, which was the most creative make up I've worn in my life haha
I used my MAC liquidlast liner in Aqualine that I bought a long time ago. I loved the colour at the time, but it was too much for daily use - so glad I remembered to use this for Halloween! I also cut this really dramatic lash in half to wear on each of the outer side of my eyes!
Stay tuned for my second Halloween look that will be much scarier than this :) Much Love!

Shimmery Halloween Nails

I rarely wear extremely dark colours on my nails, but I realized I should try it for this Halloween, and because I want to make use of this dark plum colour by Essie from a Luxe Box that I've previously received :)
Essie in 736 Luxedo, Anna Sui in 240
I put about 2 coats of Luxedo on first. It's a dark plum, but it looks very close to black on the nails. Then I put about two more coats of my Anna Sui nail polish on the tip on each nail.

Hope everyone had or is having an awesome halloween!

Much Love.

New Brushes for me!

As I was browsing through Winners during the weekend, I saw a set of ecotools travel size brushes for $14.99. They were so cute, I had to get them! I've heard good things about ecotools before, but never had the chance to try them.

It comes with 4 kabuki brushes:
- Bronze angled kabuki
- Conceal round kabuki
- Contour domed kabuki
- Buff flat top kabuki

One of my favourite brushes that I own is the Elf flat top kabuki so I have high hopes for these ones :) I haven't used them yet, but so far they feel very soft. The angled kabuki can be a bit more dense though.

Their handles are recycled aluminum handles with cute designs.

Much love.

October Luxe Box

I was so excited when I found out I won Productrater's October Luxe Box giveaway :) The packaging of this month's Luxe Box changed drastically. Although I like how sleek it looks now, I kind of miss the old packaging. The old box was so versatile. I used all of them as organizers in my drawers! I need to figure a way on how to reuse this one.

New black packaging

Included in the box:
1. Lise Watier Flash Lift Radiance Vials
2. Keratase Elixir Ultime (for hair)
3. China Glaxe Crackle in Cracked Medallian
4. Olay Professional Pro-X Eye Restoration Complex
5. Lise Watier Plumpissimo Le Gloss

I'm quite excited to try the China Glaze nail polish as this is my first China Glaze and my first Crackle polish of any kind!

Much Love.

Keeping it all in place

My 2xth birthday is in a month (totally dreading it right now.. time just flies by and there's no way to cling on) Today I received my early birthday pressie - the Miu Miu keyholder :) Last year, I made a post about how I wanted a new keyholder, and now I have one!

Isn't it gorgeous? I love the mauve pink colour with gold detailing. The leather is very soft, and the fact that it has six hooks is a plus :)

This is a comparison of my new key holder with my old one... As you can see, I needed a new one badly! This dirty and filthy looking thing was actually from my elementary school friend back when I was Grade 5. I never used it cause I didn't have any keys.. then about 2 years ago, I found it in my drawer and decided to make some use out of it. It's definitely time to move on to my upgraded version!

BCBG Goodies

This is a long overdue haul - I got these back in July during the BCBG sale. I was actually looking for a birthday present for my bestie, and got her 2 bracelets there. After a few days, I couldn't resist and I went back to get the exact same bracelets for myself! LOL I always do this... I end up getting the two similar (or same) things for me and a friend cause I wouldn't get them something if I didn't like it as well haha

Loving the sparkly ball detail

Also picked up this passport holder for under $13 I think?
I think having a passport holder is romantic.... does that even make sense? haha

Much Love.
